Donald Trump Jacked Up His Campaign’s Trump Tower Rent Once Somebody Else Was Paying It

WASHINGTON ― After bragging for a year about how cheaply he was running his campaign, Donald Trump is spending more freely now that other people are contributing ― particularly when the beneficiary is himself.

Trump nearly quintupled the monthly rent his presidential campaign pays for its headquarters at Trump Tower to $ 169,758 in July, when he was raising funds from donors, compared with March, when he was self-funding his campaign, according to a Huffington Post review of Federal Election Commission filings. The rent jumped even though he was paying fewer staff in July than he did in March. 

The Trump campaign paid Trump Tower Commercial LLC $ 35,458 in March ― the same amount it had been paying since last summer ― and had 197 paid employees and consultants. In July, it paid 172 employees and consultants.

“If I was a donor, I’d want answers,” said a prominent Republican National Committee member who supports Trump, asking for anonymity to speak freely. “If they don’t have any more staff, and they’re paying five times more? That’s the kind of stuff I’d read and try to make an (attack) ad out of it.”

“If I was a donor, I’d want answers. If they don’t have any more staff, and they’re paying five times more? That’s the kind of stuff I’d read and try to make an (attack) ad out of it.”

In addition to the rent for Trump Tower space in Manhattan, Trump has paid his eponymous golf courses and restaurants more than $ 260,000 since his campaign and the RNC struck a joint fundraising deal in mid-May, after he essentially locked up the GOP nomination. On May 18, the day the fundraising deal was announced, Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach was paid $ 29,715; Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida, was paid $ 35,845; and Trump Restaurants LLC was paid $ 125,080, according to FEC records. Such large payments were much rarer when Trump was self-funding.

It’s unclear from the campaign filings the purpose of the golf course and restaurant payments, although both of the Florida golf courses hosted Trump campaign news conferences in March. Also unclear from the filings is whether Trump is using more space in Trump Tower than he was in the spring and, if he is, why, given that his staffing is lower.

The Trump campaign did not respond to The Huffington Post’s queries.

The FEC filings show that Trump began increasing the rent at Trump Tower starting with the May 31 payment of $ 72,800. The Trump campaign paid $ 110,684 in rent on June 9, and $ 169,758 on July 10.

The campaign’s number of paid employees and consultants went from 166 in May, to 139 in June, to 172 in July. How many of those actually worked in Trump Tower cannot be determined from the FEC filings, although typically only a small fraction of a presidential campaign’s staff works in the headquarters building. Last autumn, only about a dozen of the campaign’s several dozen paid employees worked in Manhattan.

Trump continues to fly to campaign events on his personal Boeing 757 airliner, even though the aging jet burns some $ 10,000 in fuel every hour. That has made air travel one of the biggest expense categories for his campaign. In July alone, $ 495,000 went to Trump’s company that owns the plane.

Prior to May, three-quarters of the $ 59 million spent by Trump’s campaign had come out of his own pocket ― meaning that whatever Trump charged his campaign for rent was largely coming from Trump himself.

That situation is now entirely reversed. Trump’s money makes up a tiny percentage of his campaign’s spending. The bulk now comes from outside donors, both small-dollar givers and those writing maximum-limit checks of $ 2,700.

“Nobody cares when you’re spending your own money, but when you’re spending the donor’s $ 27, that could cause problems,” the RNC member said, adding that small donors especially may not be sympathetic to Trump’s extravagance. “Most campaigns run on a much tighter budget.”

For many months, Trump’s campaign prided itself on its low-rent operation. It invited reporters in to tour its headquarters on the fifth floor of Trump Tower that had once been used as production offices for “The Apprentice” TV show, which starred Trump. Photos and video from those tours show work space with unfinished ceilings, makeshift drywall partitions, and only a few campaign workers.

Commercial real estate is available in the midtown Manhattan neighborhood in the range of $ 70 per square foot annually, although Trump has charged more than that. Trump Tower rented 9,000 feet of office space in December at $ 120 per square foot, but has been unable to rent a 15,000 square-foot office that includes six terraces overlooking Fifth Avenue, even at a discounted rent of $ 90 per square foot.

Democrat Hillary Clinton has been leasing two entire floors in a Brooklyn office building totaling 80,000 square feet since the start of her campaign. The rent for that space has been about $ 212,000 per month.

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.

How To Deal With Grief: Life, Loss And Healing The Soul

Grief is forever. It doesn’t go away; it becomes a part of you. I will never stop grieving… That’s just how it is. Grief and love are conjoined, you don’t get one without the other… ― Jandy Nelson, The Sky Is Everywhere

2016-08-22-1471838133-9406627-sGRIEFsmallXRBEHSNA.jpg

Life and death are intertwined. The fact that we breathe is to acknowledge our humanness, mortality and the inevitability of death. Life and love are intertwined. From the moment we are born, we begin to form attachments – to family, things, experiences, and relationships. So, what happens when we lose someone we love or have to face our own impending death? We grieve. And while life and loss are an inevitable and constant cycle, grief is often the elephant in the room. People rarely want to face others’ pain. I find though, that the deepest human connections are formed, not only in experiencing the joys of life with others, but as equally, in loving them as they process emotions, like grief, giving them a safe place to unmask, and holding a sacred space where you allow them to “be” – for their love is as sacred as their pain. I had the opportunity to learn from three extraordinary people, who have dealt with grief in different ways – DebiJo lost her husband to leukemia; Laura lost her son to suicide. Beth lives with metastatic breast cancer and faces her own mortality daily.

Your True Friends Allow You to Un-Mask & Meet You Where You Are. “When my son died, people did not know what to say, especially when the death was a result of suicide. I came to detest the phrase, “I am so sorry for your loss.” I now can’t bring myself to say those words to a grieving loved one. Through grief, I learned that there were no words that would make my grief less, but a touch, a hug, silence, or holding my hand made me feel supported. Some people understood while others must have found it off-putting. I could not worry what others felt. My priority was to take care of my loved ones and me. However, I had to come first for me to help those I loved. My loved ones and true friends understood. I had no energy to wear a mask of well-being. I had to grieve in my own way. There was no right or wrong. No time frame. Queen Elizabeth II is credited with having said, “Grief is the price we pay for love.” So if we continue to love, our grief will change but it is because we love and for that I am grateful.” – Laura Reid

Get It Out – Bottling up Grief Isn’t an Effective Coping Mechanism. I’m living with terminal breast cancer, which means I’m not only dealing with my own impending mortality, but also watching friends with the same illness getting sicker and dying. Each death breaks my heart anew, and I can’t help but imagine how, all too soon, my family will feel like my friends’ families do. The only thing I’ve found that helps me swim back from the depths of my grief is to let it out. Sometimes that means I just sit and sob; other times, I write some more, just to get it all out. – Beth Caldwell

2016-08-22-1471838182-6868364-sGRIEFsmall.jpg

Be a Living Example of Your Love. My husband of 27 years passed away after years of battling leukemia. I handled my grief by remembering the gifts he gave me. He encouraged me to nurture relationships while we dealt with his illness and ultimate death, so I would not be alone when he was gone. He encouraged my work, so I would have fulfillment. He encouraged me to one day find love again so I would have a partner. A day doesn’t go by that I don’t miss him. But I remember the fun times we had, the love we shared, and memories that can’t be taken away. I honor him instead of grieve for him, and have a ritual I do on our anniversary, the anniversary of his death and his birthday. I get a balloon and write to him and let it float up to the sky. I light a candle every Sunday in church and talk to him about the week, and ask him to hold me tight so I won’t fall. My grief is the joy I had in knowing this man, and so I honor him every day.

2016-08-22-1471838342-655097-sUNHAPPYWOMANsmall.jpg

While there is no crash course on life, grieving or dying, what I learned from Laura, DebiJo and Beth are that there is no right or wrong way to grieve and certainly, no limit on the time. It’s also important to let it out, and allow yourself to feel your way through it. Lastly, as much as possible, focus on life and find ways to honor yourself or the one that you lost. As Elizabeth Bucchianeri so gracefully wrote, “So it’s true, when all is said and done, grief is the price we pay for love.

A Unique Approach To Discomfort

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

RNC Pulls Worst Fundraising Numbers In Recent Years

By Bob Biersack

Even as talk in political circles has focused on the Trump campaign’s apparent reliance on the Republican National Committee for much of its basic voter mobilization effort in November, reports filed with the FEC over the weekend show the RNC having arguably the worst fundraising July in at least four presidential cycles.

The RNC reported receiving $ 27.2 million last month. This sounds like a reasonable total, but a look just below the surface shows it to be a big disappointment. Included among the $ 27 million figure was a $ 3.2 million refund from the Trump Make America Great Again super PAC, covering direct mail postage that the RNC had advanced the group in an earlier month. So those $ 3 million were actually raised months ago and while they can now be spent in the future, they don’t really count as “new revenue” for July.

The RNC total also includes $ 9.4 million in donations to three special accounts with limits on how the funds can be spent. These accounts are specifically intended to support the national convention, the RNC “building fund” for physical infrastructure, and a “recount” fund to pay legal expenses related to election challenges.

Removing these accounting adjustments and restricted funds leaves the RNC with less than $ 15 million in fully usable contributions received in July. The table below shows the breakdown of RNC receipts by category for each July from 2004 to 2016. In addition to across the board declines in sources of contributions compared to past presidential years, the RNC cash balance at the end of July was less than half of its comparable balance in the last three presidential campaigns.

2016-08-22-1471898946-8672656-RNCfundraising.jpg

Virtually every category of receipts shows a decline this year. Contributions from individuals where the amount given is less than $ 200 (the “unitemized” category) is less than half what it was in July of 2004, 2008 and 2012. There is a similar decline in direct contributions of larger amounts where specific information about the donor is included in the report. These itemized contributions total much less than July 2004 and 2008 and are even smaller than July 2012 when joint fundraising became much more important.

These joint fundraising efforts where the presidential campaign works together with the national party and state parties around the country are increasingly important, and the RNC total from those efforts also lags in July compared with 2012 and 2008. The Trump campaign has talked about huge joint fundraising successes, but neither the campaign nor the RNC has received all that much from this process so far comparatively.

People often look at cash balances and the end of the month to get a feel for how a committee is positioned for future spending. Here too, the RNC on July 31 was strikingly short of its own status on the same date in past campaigns. At a time when $ 70 to $ 90 million is the norm, the RNC finds itself with only $ 34.5 million in the bank.

In a campaign finance world where unlimited donations can be made to super PACs and other outside groups at any time, and where hundreds of thousands of dollars can be given by a single individual to national and state parties, a tough fundraising month doesn’t necessarily spell disaster for a national party committee. Time is running out, though, and the demands of a challenging national campaign don’t lend themselves to quick fixes. In this world, the RNC can’t really afford another month like July.

What No One Told Me About Following My Passion

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How T Save Money On Prescription Medication

Prescription drug users are at an all-time high. It was reported in 2015 that 70% of Americans were taking prescription medications for a plethora of ailments. With the increase in users of several medications including Adviar, a drug used to treat asthma, makers have increased prices by 67 percent. These drastic increases in several other medicines have caused several patients to abandon their treatments because they simply cannot afford it.

According to DoctorCPR many patients have abandoned their prescription medications but many don’t have the option to kiss their medications goodbye and are forced to identify ways to be able to afford their expensive medications:

Dollar Generics

Generic programs are great when it comes to saving money on medications. If you are unsure of how to identify generic programs, call your local grocery store to see if they offer a dollar generic program.

Price Comparison Apps

Ever heard the statement “there’s an app for that”. It’s true. There is an app for everything but it is up to you to identify what apps work best for you. One way you can save a substantial amount of money is by using price comparison apps. These apps show you the highest and lowest prices of medications and it’s up to you to determine the best places to shop for your prescription drugs.

State and Federal Help

Almost any and everything can be appealed, including your prescriptions. Every day letters are sent out by insurance companies refusing to pay for drugs that their customers have been prescribed. If you feel as if you have been wrongly rejected, you can file an appeal. If necessary, contact your state insurance regulator who will help you get your medication approved

Ask for Help

If you can’t afford your medication never be ashamed to ask for help. If you have a good relationship with your friends and or family, ask for a loan. Some of the greatest things in life could be received if we would simply ask for help. Set up a payment plan if necessary to make sure your friends and family know you will pay them back once you can afford the medication on your own.

Do Your Research

Research is powerful when making informative decisions. Make sure you are able to identify the best fit for you and your medical needs during times of open enrollment. Often times people sign up for health insurance with no strategy behind their decisions. Once they begin to dig deeper they realize that the health insurance policy they signed up for wasn’t as good as they thought.

We listen to his anti-ISIS speech explaining how he’d utilize joint operations with allies, cyber-tech, intelligence-gathering — and “extreme, extreme extreme vetting” — to defeat ISIS. Charles Cooke is not against ideological screening per se “so long as it’s not religious screening” since the First Amendment doesn’t apply to non-citizens applying to get into US. Gara Lamarche notes that his policy prescriptions are precisely what the Obama administration is now doing…and his version of “extreme vetting” sounds beyond the pale.

The Host asks Cooke to tell our listeners what Breitbart News is and who its recent head, Steven Bannon, the new campaign CEO, is. “Bannon turned an insurgent libertarian right-wing site into a home for right-wing white nationalists. That is not pleasant to read or be. It’s a disgrace that a major party nominee associates with Breitbart.” He adds the the hire of Kelly Anne Conway as campaign manager is different because “she’s a good person with some talents.” (Host agrees on Conway, who was a BSN regular for a couple of years…except that her on-message assertions (Trump has “humilty”) and denunciations (HRC corrupt liar) renders her a Trumpian version of Baghdad Bob, albeit with a smile.)

Also, says Charles: “While fear-mongering often works and is done by both sides, it’s unlikely to succeed in 2016. While there are problems with the economy and crime, it’s nothing like the riots, assassinations and crime of 1968 that Nixon exploited.”

Net-net on the personnel changes? Gara argues that the Bannon appointment shows Trump wants not to win but just solidify his reactionary white-high-school male base for later commercialization. We’re reminded of the metaphor of Charles Sykes, a conservative talk show host in Wisconsin, who saw the move as an indication that Trump has entered his political hospice stage where he wants to be comforted by admirers at the end.

Can Trump’s expressed “regrets” for his name-calling and insults help warm up his bellicose persona? Maybe says Cooke, “if he can keep it up or the next three months but, even though the media wants a new story, that’s extraordinarily unlikely.” Gara: ” it’s not in his nature. ” Host: a person who’s gained fame and fortune by living like Andrew Dice Clay for 70 years isn’t very likely to turn into Ellen. Indeed, the next day he mockingly tweeted about Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner. Very presidential. And since we don’t accept declarations of innocence by defendants at face value, it would be, er, credulous to believe the self-serving words of a proven serial liar who changes his views daily.

Ok, assume polls and trends are right and she wins by eight points + — who’s likely to win the battle for the soul of the Republican Party starting Nov. 9: the Trump/Fox/Cruz crowd or the Ryan/National Review/Reformocons team? Charles has a dog in this fight and argues for the latter because “Trump is sui generis — there aren’t any Trump-like Republicans, for example, running for the Senate. And he benefited from an unusual 17 person field [where he stood out]. Successful parties after a defeat can tamp down the excesses and absorb the best of both sides. Democrats too after the election will be split — so let’s see who can best absorb its rebels.”

Gara, however, thinks that the Breitbart crowd more likely to prevail and that “Cruz could then be well positioned.”

The Host dissents from Cooke: The problem is not so much Trump but the angry reactionary base that elevated him — and presumably they’ll be as furiously anti-Hillary as they’ve been anti-Barack. Unless they’re chastised by the 6th popular vote loss in seven presidential elections, they’ll continue to self-marginalize in a country where older Fox viewers are dying off to be replaced by rising and more liberal millennials and minorities. And there’s little reason to believe that, with a Democratic president, the Democrats will be anywhere as divided as the GOP. For one example, Sanders will campaign for Clinton but Cruz won’t for Trump.

Remember Hillary? Trump is not the only nominee to try pre-Fall to fix a this week. Gara applauds the news that Bill Clinton will resign from the Clinton Foundation if his wife becomes president and it will no longer accept foreign or corporate contributions to avoid the appearance of conflicts of interest. Charles isn’t impressed. arguing that it’s largely been a place for Clintonites to be employed and generate profits for them. “Do you really think that they’re grifters out to make more by raising a couple of billion to help advance health and the environment for millions of poor people in 3d world countries? Charles says, “‘it’s both.” Gara insists, “it’s public service.”

Analyze this!
Is it fair for Democrats to assume that Trump is a narcissistic sociopath and for Republicans to assume that Clinton, in Trump’s words, lacks the “stability and stamina” to be president, while Hannity on Fox runs many segments asking “doctors” whether she’s suffering seizures from a fall a couple of years ago?

Gara and Charles think both are wrong to use psychiatric terms to analyze public people not under medical care — which is now called the “Goldwater Rule” after 1000+psychiatrists and psychologists said the ’64 GOP nominee was mentally unfit to serve. Lamarche, however, notes that the Clinton’s diagnosis is especially pernicious since a woman who served four years as a traveling Secretary of State and a vigorous candidate now for 16 months is in any way incapacitated, except as some WebMD docs assert on a partisan network.

*Will Trump’s Collapse sink GOP boats? Four more Democratic senators will make Chuck Schumer not Mitch McConnell the Majority Leader, which the panel agrees is likely. Cooke thinks that three seats are all but gone — Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois — while several others are iffy, like PA and NH, perhaps NC and Arizona as well. Gara wonders “how can a Republican senator can survive if s/he has to run 8-10 points ahead of the top of the ticket? They have a very delicate dance here” because they can’t live with Trump, who’s so unpopular, but can’t live without him since they need his “low-education” voters.

A Clinton-Schumer-Pelos/or weakened-Ryan D.C. is very different from a Clinton-McConnell-strong Ryan one. While the Clinton agenda won’t be able to run the table due to the filibuster and likely House GOP majority, Ryan will have to deal more with her if his margin of 59 shrinks to say 25, which now appears to be likely.

*Conservative Books. The top three NYT non-fiction best-sellers last Sunday (and top four this Sunday) were all right-wing screeds denouncing Hillary, liberals etc. How come their books sell more than comparable liberal books? Charles — author of the serious non-screed The Conservatarian Manifesto — has some ideas: Readers with money and time are older, more likely to buy books, and skew Republican, while younger voters are less likely to pick up a book than go on-line. Adds Gara: “conservatives are more isolated, angry and aggrieved and more likely to buy a book to see their viewpoints validated.” Adds the Host: unlike MSNBC which rarely promotes an author and has fewer viewers, a show like Hannity puts on any eccentric wight-winger, plugs the book, and it jumps on Amazon.”

The Eternal Beauty Of Depression

I am one of the lucky ones.

Year ago, after a torturous 8 month bout of out-of-nowhere SCREECHING Tinnitus, my brain, which up to that point had been in FIGHT mode, switched over to FLIGHT mode which is the equivalent of living in the Middle East during a 24/7 drone strike.

In terms of war this was PTSD at the highest level of supreme panic.
You are no longer capable of sitting still because you FEEL that you are in constant, mortal danger. Any sound louder than a whisper races through your bloodstream right to the panic center of your soul in under a second, so I had to disconnect all my phones because one ring alone was like a nuclear bomb going off in my central nervous system.

Depression is a supreme crisis of faith and amongst the many things that are rusty scalpel sliced out of you is your inner voice that gives you options and or simply tells you to cut it out.

I lived alone in Los Angeles at the time. My kids were off to college and I was my own worst nightmare roomate. I lost forty pounds from pacing in circles 8 hours a day.

LA is not a good place to fall apart. People in my business do not like to approach anyone who may have the communicable disease and accompanying scent of failure on them. The only preventative condom-like measure is to keep your distance. I remember standing at a urinal next to someone I was in a comedy room with for ten months and he ignored me.

So why am I lucky?

Because I was finally rescued in the most improbable way. My once upon a time writing partner and lover who had moved out of LA, screaming like her hair was on fire (which she was always destined to do from day one of her arrival. She did NOT suffer fools and good luck with that in Hollywood which is overpopulated by them. Do not confuse them with dreamers, as I am a card carrying one. I’m talking about the Holden Caulfield despised phonies).

Leslie had moved to Westchester, which as a Queens boy native, I had heard of, but honestly I not only didn’t know where the Hudson River went before I left, I didn’t even know what was on the other side of the Throggs Neck Bridge.

Well what was on the other side was light and love and support on a level I could never have imagined. Having no alternative than my own long planned suicide, I was finally convinced to throw everything into storage and move into the top floor of her 19th venture house.

Yeah, at first blush it felt weird but I am here, some 11 years later, to tell you that it was the best decision that I made…that I had no choice to make.

Between her get-off-the-couch and go take a walk nudging, a new therapist, new meds, new friends, endless yoga and an abundance of east coast light and love, I little by little found my way out of the bigger than my life maze.

I suffered a lot of loss along the way. My best friend succumbed to pancreatic cancer. My mom died. My therapist died. My chiropractor died.

At first all that felt like endlessly compounding Tetris-like blocks of punishment. But before my loving shrink passed he said to me “You have to metaphorically die…and then the clouds will part.” He died before I could understand what her meant…until it all came to me th day I was sitting in a ravaged, Key West garden that I noticed one day was growing back. It was not the SAME garden…it was a brand new version. It had died…and come back. And in that moment, I not only GOT it, but I looked up and the clouds literally parted.

You have to stop craving your former selve when you are Humpty Dumpty shatter broken and instead of fretting about gluing all the pieces back together, you instead, kiss each piece goodbye, thank them for their service…and then release them to the wind.

And when you do, I promise, you will instantly become the Phoenix of rising out of the ashes fame.

Being alone is just an illusion. There is support and love waiting for you EVERYWHERE.

Just go looking for it and the invisible will magically become visible.

Life for my has never been better. I’ve become an impossibly prolific writer of pilots, plays and books…and I’m about to head back to LA for the first time in 11 years to mount a new series that I co-created.

It’s not so much that dreams come true (they tend to at their own rate).

It’s more, I think that life comes true.
And by the way: the biggest lesson that comes from dealing with Tinnitus?

You learn that you never knew how to listen.

To yourself or to anyone else.

And when the warning siren stops, nothing is more beautiful than the sound of who we really are.

In other words, I can hear you now.

7 Olympian-Approved Ways To Eat Healthier

When the difference between gold and silver can be a hundredth of a second, it’s no surprise that Olympic athletes not only optimize their training to perform at their best, but typically follow customized performance nutrition programs identifying when, what and how much they need to eat and drink daily. In fact, most elite-level athletes have had access to a certified registered sports nutritionist since college, and virtually all professional sports teams have nutritionists on staff.

Here, sports dietitians working with Olympic athletes share some of the best winning sports nutrition secrets that help some of the world’s most decorated athletes win gold:

1. They Treat Food as Fuel

The best athletes consider food as fuel, explains Nancy Clark, a certified sports nutritionist who has worked with elite-level athletes competing in several Olympic Games. “Good nutrition is part of their overall lifestyle – just like the attention they have to training, bodywork and sleep.” Today’s Olympians eat right not only for improved performance; they do so to recover better and stay healthy.

Why you should too: “Many people fuel their cars better than their bodies,” Clark says. “If you wouldn’t put low-octane gas into a Porsche, then why would you eat low-quality food?” Instead, before taking a bite, ask yourself: “How is this going to make me feel, perform and improve my health?” Take it even further and track what you eat in an online app, then record how you feel. People who record what they eat – even if it’s only for a few days a week – generally have healthier diets.

2. They Eat Every Four Hours

To have enough energy to train (often for hours every day) and recover, athletes eat frequently to fuel themselves and to build and repair post-exercise. Most stick with an eating pattern that includes breakfast, lunch and dinner with two snacks (generally within 30 minutes of finishing a workout).

Why you should too: You don’t need the same quantity of food (read: calories) that Olympians do, but the same performance nutrition guidelines apply: Eat about every four hours, and plan meals or snacks that provide both carbs and protein within 30 minutes of finishing your workout. A more equal distribution of calories throughout the day can help optimize energy levels, and the right post-workout fuel enhances the body’s ability to recovery and create gains from the workout. It may even help you manage your weight better because you’re less likely to feel famished, which leads to poor choices and overeating.

3. They Optimize Their Protein

Protein provides the essential amino acids athletes need to recover and rebuild post-exercise. “We plan our athletes’ meals and snacks so they have quality protein options at breakfast, lunch, dinner and especially post-exercise,” explains Alicia Kendig, a senior sport dietitian at the United States Olympic Committee. Fish and seafood, Greek yogurt, beef, poultry and beans are all good protein choices, she adds.

Chobani, an official sponsor of Team USA, shipped more than 70,000 individual containers of their yogurt made with only natural, non-GMO ingredients to Rio to help Team USA athletes perform their best. Because it’s strained, Greek yogurt has twice the protein of regular yogurt. Chobani also has 40 percent less sugar than regular yogurt. “Probiotics in yogurt also help keep athletes’ GI tracts in balance and promotes a healthy immune system,” Kendig says.

Why you should too: Studies show that protein enhances satiety more than carbs or fats, so try to get optimal protein at each of your three main meals (20 to 30 grams of protein has been recommended), as it may help keep you satisfied. That equals about 3 to 4 ounces of lean fish or poultry or 8 ounces of Greek yogurt. For optimal recovery, choose protein with carbohydrates within 30 minutes to an hour after exercise, like Kendig’s “Crowd-Pleaser Smoothie,” made with Chobani Vanilla Greek Yogurt, orange juice, soymilk and frozen banana.

4. They Hydrate Early and Often

“My athletes call me the ‘hydrationist,’” says Meg Mangano, team nutritionist for the LA Clippers and member of the U.S. Olympic Committee’s Sport Science Network, “because I’m hyper-focused on hydration.” She recommends athletes start drinking water as soon as they get up, and continue drinking fluids throughout the day. Dehydration can significantly impact performance, and drinking more fluids is one of the easiest things athletes can do to improve their performance. Most top athletes drink about 1/2 to 1 ounce of fluid per pound of body weight every day, and at least half of those fluids should be from water.

Why you should too: “Most people live in a constant state of mild dehydration,” Mangano says. Being dehydrated not only impedes athletic performance, but can lead to a sluggish metabolism. Drink water (or other calorie-free beverages) until your urine is pale yellow, like the color of lemonade. A good goal is to drink about half your body weight in water (or other calorie-free beverages) every day. If you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink 75 ounces – nearly 10 cups – of water.

5. They Eat Tons (Literally!) of Seafood

Raw egg shakes and steaks may have been popular with athletes in the past, but today’s Olympians are looking for protein that goes beyond building muscle. As a result, athletes eat a lot of seafood. And canned and pouch tuna (read: convenient and inexpensive) are staples in athletes’ cupboards. In fact, at the 2016 Summer Games, they’re expected to eat more than 82 tons of seafood. “What’s great about fish is that it provides lean protein, plus the anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids that have a lot of health benefits and aid recover,” Kendig says.

Why you should too: Most Americans eat just 10 percent of the 8 to 12 ounces (about two fish meals) per week recommended in the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Getting enough seafood ensures that your body will have an optimal amount of the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, which improve heart health, reduce the risk for Type 2 diabetes and help maintain a healthy weight. What’s more, a new study published in theNutrition Journal reported that pregnant women who eat the recommended servings of seafood could boost the IQ of their children by up to three points at age 9, thanks to the neurological benefits provided by marine-based omega-3 fats.

6. They Enjoy Quality Carbs

Carbohydrates are the primary fuel source for your muscles, so Olympic athletes know the type, timing and amount they need to optimize performance. For most, more than half of their daily calories come from nutrient-rich options such as whole grains, fruit, potatoes, beans and legumes, and yogurt. Sports drinks and other primarily simple-sugar options are generally reserved for before, during and post-exercise.

Why you should too: There’s no need to fear carbs, as long as you eat nutrient-rich options and keep tabs on both the amount and the time that you eat them. To keep energy levels up, enjoy carbohydrates before, during and after exercise, and back off them at other times of the day.

7. They Follow an 85-15 Rule

No one eats perfectly all the time – including the most decorated Olympians. Most athletes stick to their performance nutrition guidelines about 85 percent of the time, and are more relaxed about their choices for their remaining meals and snacks, Clark says. This doesn’t mean they’ll eat anything that winds up on their plate, but they may indulge occasionally by eating some baked goods, fried foods or salty snacks.

Why you should too: If you try to eat perfectly 100 percent of the time, you only set yourself up for failure. Instead, aim to make good choices for 18 of the 21 meals a week, and you can relax (read: not pig out) for three of them. For example, if you want to have your favorite pizza or know that you’re going to a party, you can make those meals part of your overall diet.

Clinton’s Fragile Lead

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan. In 1969, the Cubs had a 9 1/2 game lead over the New York Mets in the middle of August, but ended the season 8 games behind the Mets after losing 17 of 25 games to close the season.

The average of the latest national polls shows Clinton with about a 5 percent lead over her Republican opponent, Donald Trump. But Trump has had a rough two weeks, and has now shaken up his campaign staff. Gone is campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who was brought in to make the campaign more professional. On Tuesday, Trump brought on Breitbart News executive chairman Steve Bannon as campaign CEO, and Kellyanne Conway as campaign manager.

In an article last October, a Bloomberg Businessweek headline read, “This Man Is the Most Dangerous Political Operative In America.” Bannon is a former Goldman Sachs banker and documentary maker who took over Breitbert, a conservative website created in 2007, when its founder, David Breitbart, died suddenly in 2012. “The recruitment of Bannon will release Trump to be the outsider that won a primary in historic fashion,” wrote reporter Joseph R. Murray in The Hill. “Bannon will encourage Trump to be the very person the (Republican National Committee) warned against and, for that reason, Trump stands to win because this election is not about Republicans versus Democrats; it is about outside change versus insider corruption.” Murray’s piece was entitled, “Trump’s recruitment of Bannon means war and everyone knows it.”

Conway is a long time Republican operative and Trump friend. Conway earlier ran a PAC for Texas Senator Ted Cruz. She is a lawyer, a mother, and founded The Polling Company in 1995, which advised many Republicans, especially on women’s issues. Conway is an effective communicator who will work to focus Trump and his campaign on issues. She reportedly was influential in getting Trump to express regrets last week for derogatory comments he has made in the past, although he was not specific.

Bannon and Conway will work forcefully to turn voters against Clinton. But reining in Trump may be difficult. And already he has taken many controversial positions that may be hard to clean up. For instance, last October Trump said he would have a deportation force that would remove undocumented immigrants from the United States. On Sunday, Conway said the creation of a deportation force by a Trump administration was “to be determined.” A softening of Trump’s immigration position, which played a huge role in getting him the nomination, could alienate some of is most ardent supporters.

Nonetheless, Clinton has lots of perceived baggage. She has been dogged by scandals most of her public career. Most recently, the Clinton Foundation has come under intense scrutiny for possibly trading favors for donations during Clinton’s term as secretary of state. Sunday’s New York Times reported that, “The Clinton Foundation has accepted tens of millions of dollars from countries that the State Department — before, during and after Mrs. Clinton’s time as secretary — criticized for their records on sex discrimination and other human-rights issues.” Because of the controversy, former President Bill Clinton announced Thursday that the organization would not longer accept foreign or corporate donations should his wife be elected in November. But that will do little to quiet critics. Several leading Democrats have called for the foundation to immediately stop taking donations.

Of course, the controversy surrounding Clinton’s use of a private email server while at the State Department continues to trouble her campaign. In July, FBI director David Comey recommended against prosecuting Clinton, but called her use of a private email server “extremely reckless.” Last week the bureau turned the case documents over to Congress, and Republicans are pressing that she be charged with perjury.

Clinton has maintained a strong lead in recent polls, and has been pulling ahead in several key battleground states. She is also doing well with women and minorities. But likely voters view neither candidate favorably. Clinton is most vulnerable on the trust issue, although Trump is as well. And more that 60 percent of all Americans surveyed believe the country is on the wrong track.

For sure, the team of Bannon and Conway will attack Clinton mercilessly on trust in an effort to disqualify her from being president while helping to improve Trump’s position in the polls by keeping him “on message” as the candidate for “change.” Expectations for Trump doing so are low, so any improvement can build momentum. Bannon and Conway know the media prefers a horserace.

This year the Cubs are dominating major league baseball, and they are currently the favorites to win the World Series. But long-suffering Cub fans remember 1969, including Hillary Clinton. She must do a better job of winning over uncommitted voters, and with addressing her weaknesses, in order to prevail in November.

These Underwater Yoga Photos Prove The Practice Is Truly Magical

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

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

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

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

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

Nirvana: achieved.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Five Reasons Donald Trump Will Be Our Next President

You won’t see another article like this one anywhere else in the mainstream news media; certainly not in The Huffington Post.

That’s because it’s blatantly obvious that the media doesn’t want Donald Trump to be elected President.

Think about it: with the possible exception of Fox News, Breitbart and Drudge, there isn’t one news outlet that isn’t supporting Hillary Clinton.

And if you think Americans don’t like our current President or Congress, there’s new reason to believe that Americans trust journalists and media people even less than our roundly despised elected leaders.

A 2012 Gallup poll–don’t trust polls, as I drive home later … but this one is to be trusted–shouted “U.S. Distrust in Media Hits New High,” as if it was unbelievable. It wasn’t, LOL, and can only have gotten worse in the four years since.

Turns out that while 60% of those asked had “little or no trust in the mass media,” only 10% had “a great deal of trust and confidence” in the media. I read this as 90% of America was not enamored of the press in 2012.

Lastly, 44% said the news media are “too liberal” while only 19% said it was “too conservative.” (What, I like to imagine are those clueless 19% like?)

All of this stale data gives us some idea of precisely why you won’t see an article taking this thrust or political orientation anywhere else. Why is this important? Figure it out.

Just as I watch Maddow, Matthews, Todd and other Leftist “journos,” so too should Liberals read this if only to find out what the enemy is thinking.

It also speaks to why I am one of the only–if not the only Conservative writer on HuffPo. (Great thanks for this go out to Arianna Huffington for her foresight.)

Here now, the Five Reasons:

1. Donald Trump’s Campaign Rallies–nothing can top a Trump Rally. I’ve been to both a Trump and Clinton Rally and they are night-and-day different.

Hillary’s event was in a gymnasium, poorly attended, had an audience that needed constant prodding. At the last minute, a bunch of unrelated crowd-fillers were scooted in awkwardly and trained up to cheer when cued. There were no protesters, as if nobody has anything to protest Hillary about. And Hillary’s speech was wooden, shrill and without passion.

Compare this to the organized, excited buzz of a Trump Rally. Over 4500 people filling a 4000-capacity nightclub. with thousands of disappointed yet still excited Trumpers outside who couldn’t get in but waiting anyway.

Inside Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Women, Gays (many holding ‘Blanks’ for Trump signs, that’s how I knew), pregnant women and lots of children, running around and allowed to have fun and play. It was a safe environment with people who exhibited manners and seemed to make room for each other.

The press at the event I attended reported “thousands of anti-Trump protesters.” I went to investigate. What I saw were a very motley crew of approximately 75 miscreants, uncoordinated and unable to intelligently describe what was wrong with Trump or what their gripes were. A reasonable conversation was impossible. Turns out, these poor souls were bused in, given $ 20 and a sandwich for their trouble. Or to start trouble. Pathetic.

It’s the first event I’ve been to in my life that started with The National Anthem, a benediction prayer AND The Pledge of Allegiance. (A commentary on the current state of our country is the fact that I hadn’t spoken the Pledge since I was a grade-schooler–a horrible situation.) There were American flags festooned all over the place, unlike the first night of the DNC.

And when Donald Trump spoke, people listened. When people protested, he asked them to leave until the audience took that upon themselves, chanting “Trump, Trump. Trump” until the interrupters left on their own, gladly.

All in all, Trump has created something really special with his rallies. Something no other political candidate has replicated ever, because Trump’s one of a kind. The difference in his rallies is one of the things that will get him elected.

2. Trump is FUNNY; People Like Funny. And, Hillary is Anything But–Who would you rather listen to? Follow? Someone funny or someone shrill? I know my answer. I can’t stand Hillary’s nasty, high-pitched tones and absurd paranoia. She’s got a congenital deficiency in the Truth Hormone and is currently on public trial on a number of atrocities. So that’s really not funny.

On the other hand, we have Trump who makes me laugh about every other paragraph of his speeches. This is most obvious at his rallies when he tells a protester to “go home to Mommy” or “You’re so politically correct, you’re a real beauty.” Trump crowds wait for his humor and react with glee.

This Trump Humor will serve him well when the debates begin. Hillary will have only accusations, meanness and unsupported claims to hurl at Trump. In the meantime, Trump will castigate Hillary with humor, cheerfulness and fun-poking which she cannot counter.

Trump may be behind in the polls now, but just Like Ronald Reagan versus Walter Mondale with his elegant yet campaign-piercing “I want you to know that also I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent’s youth and inexperience” lightning-bolt, Trump is filled with these kinds of retorts that will eviscerate Hillary in the debate. There’s no way for her to prepare. Nobody can fill-in for Trump during her mock preparatory debates. She’s done once the debates start. Trump wins every one of the three without even breaking a sweat.

Another good yardstick is likability. People I know who have met Trump (including myself) seem to like him, some immensely. Hillary not so much. People don’t respond to Hillary’s known backstage personality because she’s cold, calculating and absolutely ruthless. I reference the book, “Unlikable.”

3. The Polls Are Not To Be Trusted–Who conducts these polls anyway? The aforementioned news media, generally in partnership with an academic institution of some kind. Oh, there’s another Liberal audience that can never vote anything but Democratic: Academics. It’s no wonder that skewed results are plastered all over our TVs, newspapers and Internet publications when polls are conducted. This is the news media’s main, centralized, not-too-secret secret sauce that let’s them cheer-lead their candidates onto undeserved victory. The Media has long thought they have Americans’ minds in the bag–that they can make anything happen by controlling what and how Americans think including get their candidate elected.

It’s about time this media manipulation, ‘medipulation’ I’ll call it, stops.

The one possible landmine of this spinning of the polls by a Liberal media, academics and politicians is that they forget that by putting their candidate ahead when they’re really not, they run the risk of their voters staying home and consequently, giving the election to the Conservative candidate they tried to bamboozle. Trump voters are also staying hidden; they don’t want to deal with the Liberals’ nastiness so they keep to themselves until Election Day. Wait and see how many people come out for Trump; it may be shocking.

I am waiting for this and hope it happens in November.

4. Trump’s Spent Virtually Nothing; Hillary Over $ 100 Million–Here we are in mid to late August and Trump is staying close to Clinton having spent little to defeat 16 other hopeful Republican nominees, get through his national convention with the nomination and finally, begin the general election campaign. Most honest political insiders and campaign people are astonished at this. It’s never been done before. So let’s not forget it.

Simultaneously, Clinton has spent a hundred million or more (her campaign won’t release specifics so you can be sure it’s a boatload) just getting past a Socialist curmudgeon, her convention and the start of the Damning of Trump.

As the news media has ignored how much Hillary is spending, they have a morbid fascination with how much Trump has to spend. Look, Donald Trump is the only candidate in American history who can write himself a $ 250 million check just to get things started; out of petty cash. This ability is not only sui generis but also bespeaks another underlying Trump advantage: He doesn’t depend on outside patrons, lobbyists, corporations and Wall Street, as Hillary clearly does.

5. Hillary’s Future is VERY Uncertain; an ‘October Surprise?’–Definitely. Hillary’s lies simply must catch up to her eventually. There’s a simple truth that we all learn as children: that liars always get their just desserts. Even Hillary’s base doesn’t trust her. Her party doesn’t trust her. President Obama doesn’t trust her. She, along with her disgraced husband, are unconvincing truth-tellers. They just cannot be believed about anything.

So this leaves Hillary only one competitive option: Call Donald Trump a liar at every turn. Say he’s dangerous. Say he can’t be trusted with the nuclear codes. Say he doesn’t have the right “temperament.” And hope all that sticks.

If we are to believe Julian Assange, there will be an ‘October Surprise.’ The drip, drip, drip of the dual investigations on her email server and the Clinton Global Initiative have taken their toll on her and her campaign and will yield more damaging info in the run-up to the election.

The dreadful Iran Deal and her involvement in the early days of its strategic evolution with also continue to hurt her.

The Democratic Party, Liberal media and Hillary’s own supporters are scared. They try to hide it but they can’t. There’s good reason for their worries.

If I’m Donald Trump and his campaign, I’d much rather have my opponents all worried about me than the reverse. Psychologically, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy to be afraid before going into battle. Ask a Spartan.

So in conclusion, I don’t believe that Hillary Clinton, with all her baggage packed in steamer trunks, can beat Donald Trump.

No matter how much the Liberal news media presses and supports her against one of their central reason for existing–to keep elected officials honest through oversight–people won;t believe them. There’s no media oversight of Hillary Clinton. While Donald Trump is constantly scrutinized with a magnifying glass by a rabidly Leftist media.

I could be wrong.

I’ve been wrong so many times before.

But I don’t think I’m wrong here and now.

Let’s hope for the future of America that Hillary Clinton loses in November.

Any other result continues America’s eight-year-long journey down the wrong path.

Angels and Molecules

The other day my wife, Ana, and I went out for a few hours. When we came back, we parked the car, entered through the downstairs garage door, came up to the first floor and into the living room. Where we saw our intrepid dog Ben, standing on the back of the living room couch, gazing out the window. Waiting.

To explain: Ana is the center of Ben’s universe, the sun around which all his planets revolve. She is his oxygen, his A to Z, his why the universe exists. He was waiting for her.

But Ben has gone deaf. He had somehow missed seeing the car’s approach, and hadn’t heard it come down the drive, or the motorized grind of the garage door opening, or our footsteps up the stairs. As far as he knew, we were still gone.

2016-08-19-1471640868-7835203-Ben2.jpg

Moments after I snapped this picture, I clapped, loud enough for him to hear, and he turned his head and saw Ana — and his little dog face broke into an ecstatic OMG, why didn’t someone tell me?! and all was right with the world.

It made me think of Beethoven.

Late in life, Beethoven was attending the premier of his ninth (and final) symphony. “Attending” is perhaps not the right word. Although he was by this time deaf as a board, he strongly felt he should be on hand to guide the musicians along in this huge and enormously challenging composition, so he stood right up there on stage, by the conductor, and gestured like crazy throughout the performance, doing his utmost to shape the right tempi and dynamics and phrasing — even though he could not hear a note.

After the last chord was sounded, the composer stood on the stage, breathing heavily, facing the orchestra. The audience, who had never heard anything like this before (nor, for that matter, had anyone on the planet), erupted into raucous, deafening applause.

The composer was oblivious. He had no idea anyone was even clapping. The mezzo-soprano soloist had to approach him (with tears in her eyes, and can you blame her?) and tug on his arm to get him to turn around and see the thunderous response his music has evoked.

This got me thinking:

What if we’re all like Ben and Beethoven?

What if we are surrounded by all the applause, but just don’t hear it? If the center of our universe, the thing we love most, has already arrived and is standing there watching us, but we just don’t know it yet?

I remember as a teenager, taking a walk one morning in my neighborhood, going blocks and blocks in my quiet suburban town, a Sunday, hardly anyone about. I’d been reading about physics and metaphysics and different thinkers’ understandings of how reality was assembled. I remember stopping, standing, and gazing out along a path down to a field.

It suddenly hit me that I was surrounded by billions, trillions, quadrillions of molecules, atoms, particles, all buzzing and humming and soaring in orbits around each other, vibrating like mad. I was a musician and student of acoustics, and I knew this basic fact of life: vibration makes noise. I was standing in the midst of the most colossal symphony imaginable. I just couldn’t hear it.

Although for those few moments, it felt as if I almost did.

There is an ancient tradition in Bali which holds that a gamelan orchestra, that most mesmerizing of human musical ensembles, doesn’t “make” its music. No, say the Balinese, that rippling stream of rhythm and melody is already happening, already going on, all around us, all the time. The job of the gamelan musicians is not to create the music, but simply to catch it, like a crystal set picking up radio waves and stepping them down to audible form.

What if we are surrounded by symphonies?

What if our ancestors, departed parents, and all those loved ones who have shuffled off before us are in fact standing right beside us, beaming with pleasure at our antics, cheering us on?

What if throngs of angels are stomping and hooting and laughing and shouting, exuberant as a sold-out Bruce Springsteen auditorium just to be there watching us, applauding our every mundane move like a chorus of thunderclaps?

You know, I think they may be.

You can almost hear them, can’t you?

8 Easy Ways To Protect Your Back

Fend off back pain

In any three-month period, about a quarter of American adults have at least one day of back pain, according to the National Institutes of Health. The first time often happens between ages 30 and 40 and, like all fun things, tends to become more common with age. “After the common cold, back pain is the most common reason adults seek physicians,” says physical therapist Eric Robertson, PT, DPT, OCS, a spokesperson for the American Physical Therapy Association

Most cases aren’t serious and go away on their own—we’ll get to that later—but wouldn’t it be nice to avoid them entirely? Some simple changes to your daily routine might just do that, suggests Robertson. Some might be familiar, and we’ll go over a few basics, to get them right. But it may surprise you how many things you can do every day to protect your back. 

1. Stretch your hips

You know about core strength—keeping your abdominal muscles strong to support your back. But hip muscles are equally important for preventing back problems, emphasizes Robertson. These are called the gluteal muscles, which include the muscles in your rear end, as well as those that wrap around the side of the hip. “One works to extend your hips, the other to move the hips out to the side,” explains Robertson. 

One simple way to stretch your “glutes” is to lie on your back and pull your knees up to your chest. Hold for 15 to 30 seconds, and repeat two or three times. “This keeps the hips from getting stiff,” says Robertson. “The more you move your hips, the better off you are.”  

2. Strengthen your hips

You’ll want your glutes not just limber, but strong, too. Try a “mini-squat,” suggests Robertson.Stand about about six or seven inches away from a wall and squat—just a little. No need to make the top of your legs parallel to the floor—that’s a 90-degree angle that trainers often recommend. Instead, aim for about a 20-degree angle. “It’s a nice safe exercise to do.” 

Another exercise: Stand up from a sitting position. Sit on the edge of a chair, and stand up without using your arms. “As simple as this sounds, if you do it 5 or 10 times, three times a day, you’ll get really strong.” 

A third exercise: Balance on one leg. “Hold on to a counter that won’t move, and stand on one leg,” says Robertson. “Keep your pelvis level. This works on the gluteal muscles on the side, and improves balance.” 

3. Stop worrying about your posture

Here’s something you don’t have to fret about: Standing up straight. “There’s actually a poor correlation between posture and back pain,” says Robertson. “When we fix posture, we don’t see back pain get better. In any case, if you tell someone to stand up straight, they can only do that for a little while. But if you help them develop the muscles to stand up straight, they can do it all day long.” 

4. Take micro-breaks from the chair

Now that you’re practicing standing up from your chair, do it frequently! Sitting for long periods is bad for your back. It puts pressure on your disks, and it also relaxes your gluteal muscles too much. “Too long in a seated position, and these muscles that are important to stabilize the spine get into a more relaxed state than you want.” 

Solution: Standing micro-breaks. “As soon as you stand up, you activate your gluteal muscles, your core, and your pelvic flood muscles,” says Robertson. His advice: Every 15 minutes or so, stand up, stretch your back, go for a tiny walk, and sit back down again. Every hour or so, if you can, get up and take a slightly longer walking break.

5. Lift your grandkids the right way

The standard advice on how to lift heavy objects—that’s your grandkids to you—is always important, according to the American Physical Therapy Association. 

When lifting a child from the floor:stand close, keeping your back straight, and place one food slightly in front of the other.Bend your hips and knees to lower yourself onto one knee. Now grab your grandchild with both arms, hold him close to your body, tighten your stomach muscles, and push up with your legs so that you return to a standing position. Put him back down on the floor with the same maneuver in reverse. Whatever you’re lifting, “Lift with your legs, not your back,” says Robertson. “The stronger you keep your hip muscles, and the more limber, the more likely you will be to lift with your legs rather than your back.” 

6. Take a daily walk

“Walking is absolutely the best exercise for your back,” says Robertson. For one, it’s the best position to reduce pressure on your spine. “You have the least amount of stress on your spine when you’re up and walking.” Standing is better than sitting, but standing for too long in one position is more stressful than gently moving along. “As you walk, you strengthen your hip muscles, and stabilize your spine and back.” 

Bonus: If you do have back pain, regular walking may reduce it. This could be because when you exercise the body releases endogenous opiates or dopamine, both feel-good chemicals in the body. Whatever the reason, the evidence is clear that “walking reduces the perception of pain,” says Robertson. 

7. Be careful shoveling snow

There’s a reason why we’re warned against just picking up the snow shovel and having at it. One is the cardiovascular risk of going from inactivity to heavy exertion so quickly. But it’s a really good way to throw your back out. One reason: Water is heavy. Another is that the weight is so far from your body that you’re creating a lever to put extra pressure on your back muscles. “The further away from the axis, the more rotation force there is,” says Robertson, for all you Archimedes fans out there. “You’re guiding a shovel that’s four feet from your back, and you have to work hard to stabilize your back.” His advice: “Warm up, stretch your hips, don’t fill up the shovel, and take frequent breaks.” 

8. Chill out

Chronic stress not only tightens your muscles, which shortens them and makes it harder to support your back—but it also increases your sensitivity to pain. Anything you do to help you break the stress cycle—relaxation exercises, aerobics, meditation,yoga—can help. But if you get recurrent back pain, one stress you can work on is the fear of back pain itself. 

“It’s very clear that the more stressed you are, the more likely you are to feel pain,” says Robertson. “You’ll have more trouble with any aches and pains that you have.” If you start to feel anxiety or fear about your pain, it can make the pain worse. “You feel fearful, and think your back pain will never go away.” 

More on stress

Stress and its affect on back pain is one reason why Robertson often emphasizes to his patients that the vast majority of back pain isn’t serious—and it goes away on its own. Certainly you should see your doctor if you have certain symptoms such as numbness or weakness, or a change in bowel or bladder function, which may indicate a medical condition. And see your doc if your back pain persists. “For a small proportion of the population, back pain is chronic,” admits Robertson. “But for most it’s self-limiting—it gets better with time.” 

Just knowing that most back pain gets better over time can help you lower your stress level, which, in turn, can help you get over any back pain quicker. “Knowing it’s not really serious helps to reduce your fear. It goes a long way to helping people to continue to move when they have back pain.”

Jerry Falwell Jr. Seriously Compared Trump To Winston Churchill

Campaign leadership shakeup? Check.

Sort-of apology? Check.

Offensive outreach speech aimed at African-Americans and delivered to a white audience? Check.

The struggling presidential campaign of Donald Trump has tried many things in recent days to revive the GOP nominee’s dimming chances against Hillary Clinton.

Now, we can add a prominent surrogate’s comparison of Trump to legendary British prime minister Winston Churchill to the growing list of Hail Mary passes by the campaign and its allies.

“We need a leader with qualities that resemble those of Winston Churchill, and I believe that leader is Donald Trump,” evangelical Christian leader Jerry Falwell Jr. wrote in an op-ed in The Washington Post on Friday. “As Churchill did, Trump possesses the resolve to put his country first and to never give up in a world that is increasingly hostile to our values.”

The analogy to Churchill comes not from anything Trump has done yet, but from the strength with which Falwell believes Trump will confront the global jihadist terror threat, just as Churchill stood up to the Nazis.

Falwell, president of Liberty University, a conservative Christian institution in Virginia, was an early endorser of Trump. In the aftermath of the terror attack in San Bernardino, California, in December, Falwell said that if more people carried guns, “we could end those Muslims.” (Falwell later clarified that he meant Muslims who carry out acts of terror, rather than all Muslims.)

In other ways, Falwell’s Washington Post op-ed reads more like a typical conservative indictment of Democratic foreign policy. Just as Trump is the “Churchillian leader we need,” in Falwell’s telling, President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Clinton are, conversely, the “Neville Chamberlains of our time” for brokering a deal with Iran to eliminate its nuclear weapons program. (Chamberlain was Churchill’s immediate predecessor, best known for trying to appease German dictator Adolf Hitler with the cession of a portion of Czechoslovakia.)

Many conservatives have called the Obama administration’s Iran accord a foolhardy, Chamberlain-esque deal with the devil. The White House, nonproliferation experts and even many top Israeli security officials argue that while it is imperfect, it is the best shot at preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.

But Falwell clings to the hardline conservative myth that Republican leaders in Congress could have done more to stop Obama’s foreign policy.

“All of this was enabled by a feckless establishment Republican Congress,” he wrote.

In fact, congressional Republicans are limited in their ability to obstruct Obama by the Constitution’s separation of powers. They are able to hold up legislation related to domestic policy proposed by the president, but as commander in chief, he can negotiate certain foreign agreements and prosecute counter-terrorism efforts as he sees fit.

In his Friday op-ed, Falwell also urged conservatives to vote for Trump out of concern for the liberal Supreme Court justices Clinton would get to appoint.

“If Clinton appoints the next few Supreme Court justices, not only will the Second Amendment right to bear arms be effectively lost, but also activist judges will rewrite our Constitution in ways that would make it unrecognizable to our founders,” he wrote.

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.

9 Habits Of Highly Emotionally Intelligent People

2016-08-18-1471553223-9662730-9HabitsofHighlyEmotionallyIntelligentPeopleHP.jpg

When emotional intelligence first appeared to the masses, it threw a massive wrench into what many people had always assumed was the sole source of success–IQ.

How much of an impact does emotional intelligence (EQ) have on your personal and professional success? The short answer is: a lot! It’s a powerful way to focus your energy in one direction with a tremendous result.

Emotional intelligence is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results. Emotional intelligence is made up of four core skills that pair up under two primary competencies: personal competence and social competence.

2016-08-18-1471553284-8906503-9HabitsofHighlyEmotionallyIntelligentPeopleHP2.jpg

Personal competence comprises your self-awareness and self-management skills, which focus more on you individually than on your interactions with other people. Personal competence is your ability to stay aware of your emotions and manage your behavior and tendencies.

  • Self-Awareness is your ability to accurately perceive your emotions and stay aware of them as they happen.
  • Self-Management is your ability to use awareness of your emotions to stay flexible and positively direct your behavior.

Social competence is made up of your social awareness and relationship management skills; social competence is your ability to understand other people’s moods, behavior, and motives in order to respond effectively and improve the quality of your relationships.

  • Social Awareness is your ability to accurately pick up on emotions in other people and understand what is really going on.
  • Relationship Management is your ability to use awareness of your emotions and the others’ emotions to manage interactions successfully.

Despite the significance of emotional intelligence, its intangible nature makes it very difficult to know which behaviors you should emulate. So I’ve analyzed the data from the million-plus people TalentSmart has tested in order to identify the habits that set high-EQ people apart.

1. They’re relentlessly positive. Keep your eyes on the news for any length of time, and you’ll see that it’s just one endless cycle of war, violent attacks, fragile economies, failing companies, and environmental disasters. It’s easy to think the world is headed downhill fast. And who knows? Maybe it is. But emotionally intelligent people don’t worry about that because they don’t get caught up in things they can’t control. They focus their energy on directing the two things that are completely within their power–their attention and their effort. Numerous studies have shown that optimists are physically and psychologically healthier than pessimists. They also perform better at work. Remind yourself of this the next time a negative train of thought takes hold of you.

2. They have a robust emotional vocabulary. All people experience emotions, but it is a select few who can accurately identify them as they occur, which is problematic because unlabeled emotions often go misunderstood, which leads to irrational choices and counterproductive actions. People with high EQs master their emotions because they understand them, and they use an extensive vocabulary of feelings to do so. While many people might describe themselves as simply feeling “bad,” emotionally intelligent people can pinpoint whether they feel “irritable,” “frustrated,” “downtrodden,” or “anxious.” The more specific your word choice, the better insight you have into exactly how you are feeling, what caused it, and what you should do about it.

3. They’re assertive. People with high EQs balance good manners, empathy, and kindness with the ability to assert themselves and establish boundaries. This tactful combination is ideal for handling conflict. When most people are crossed, they default to passive or aggressive behavior. Emotionally intelligent people remain balanced and assertive by steering themselves away from unfiltered emotional reactions. This enables them to neutralize difficult and toxic people without creating enemies.

4. They’re curious about other people. It doesn’t matter if they’re introverted or extroverted, emotionally intelligent people are curious about everyone around them. This curiosity is the product of empathy, one of the most significant gateways to a high EQ. The more you care about other people and what they’re going through, the more curiosity you’re going to have about them.

5. They forgive, but they don’t forget. Emotionally intelligent people live by the motto “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” They forgive in order to prevent a grudge, but they never forget. The negative emotions that come with holding onto a grudge are actually a stress response. Holding on to that stress can have devastating health consequences, and emotionally intelligent people know to avoid this at all costs. However, offering forgiveness doesn’t mean they’ll give a wrongdoer another chance. Emotionally intelligent people will not be bogged down by mistreatment from others, so they quickly let things go and are assertive in protecting themselves from future harm.

6. They won’t let anyone limit their joy. When your sense of pleasure and satisfaction are derived from comparing yourself to others, you are no longer the master of your own happiness. When emotionally intelligent people feel good about something that they’ve done, they won’t let anyone’s opinions or accomplishments take that away from them. While it’s impossible to turn off your reactions to what others think of you, you don’t have to compare yourself to others, and you can always take people’s opinions with a grain of salt. That way, no matter what other people are thinking or doing, your self-worth comes from within. Regardless of what people think of you at any particular moment, one thing is certain–you’re never as good or bad as they say you are.

7. They make things fun. Emotionally intelligent people know exactly what makes them happy, and they constantly work to bring this happiness into everything they do. They turn monotonous work into games, go the extra mile to make people they care about happy, and take breaks to enjoy the things they love no matter how busy they are. They know that injecting this fun into their lives fights off stress and builds lasting resilience.

8. They are difficult to offend. If you have a firm grasp of whom you are, it’s difficult for someone to say or do something that gets your goat. Emotionally intelligent people are self-confident and open-minded, which creates a pretty thick skin.

9. They squash negative self-talk. A big step in developing emotional intelligence involves stopping negative self-talk in its tracks. The more you ruminate on negative thoughts, the more power you give them. Most of our negative thoughts are just that–thoughts, not facts. You can stop the negative and pessimistic things your inner voice says by writing them down. Once you’ve taken a moment to slow down the negative momentum of your thoughts, you will be more rational and clear-headed in evaluating their veracity. You can bet that your statements aren’t true any time you use words such as “never,” “worst,” and “ever.” If your statements still look like facts once they’re on paper, take them to a friend and see if he or she agrees with you. Then the truth will surely come out.

Bringing It All Together

Unlike your IQ, your EQ is highly malleable. As you train your brain by repeatedly practicing new emotionally intelligent behaviors, your brain builds the pathways needed to make them into habits. Before long, you will begin responding to your surroundings with emotional intelligence without even having to think about it. And as your brain reinforces the use of new behaviors, the connections supporting old, destructive behaviors will die off.

Which strategies are your favorites? Please share in the comments section below, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

Backpacks And Back Pain

With school just starting and the kids abandon the playground and return to the classroom with an emphasis on giving a sound education, children are being given a heavy workload now more than ever. This has translated into more books and accessories, greatly contributing to the normalcy and reliance on carrying backpacks. Despite their usefulness, backpacks can cause back pain if overloaded or worn improperly.

2016-08-20-1471714844-4735983-Untitled.png

To understand how heavy backpacks contribute to back pain, it’s important to look at the composition of the back. Your child’s spine is composed of 33 bones called vertebrae with discs between them that act as natural shock absorbers. When a heavy backpack is incorrectly placed over your child’s shoulders, the weight’s force can pull your child backwards. Usually, children counteract this force by arching or bending forward at the hips causing the spine to compress unnaturally, contributing to neck, shoulder and back pain.

2016-08-20-1471714971-3849456-1.png

The best way to prevent lower back pain is by not allowing your children to overload their backpacks. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, children should limit their backpack weight to between 10 and 15 percent of their body weight. Backpacks weighing more than this are too heavy to maintain a standing posture. This weight causes children to lean forward, affecting the natural curve in the lumbar and lower back regions. Overloading backpacks can cause a variety of problems.

“Kids these days think backpacks are moving libraries,” carrying heavy weights far distances to school and between classes without breaks can cause a variety of back problems. Kids need to feel healthy so they can keep up with their schoolwork.”

Another problem with backpack use is wearing them improperly. Here, a common problem is wearing backpacks over only one shoulder. This uneven distribution of weight causes children to compensate by leaning to one side. The frequent imbalance causes muscle strain. The problem can be exacerbated if backpacks have tight or narrow straps, as they can interfere with circulation and nerves.

There are, however, some simple ways to prevent your child from developing back pain. First, it’s important to monitor the weight of children’s backpacks to ensure they are not overloading them. Second, purchase a backpack with wide, padded straps to distribute the load over the shoulders evenly. Backpacks that have waist and additional shoulder straps may also prove beneficial in transferring the load to the hips and preventing slouching. Lastly, it’s important to concentrate the bulk of the weight closest to your child’s body in the middle of the back. This will help your child achieve better posture and balance, while preventing possible falls.

Poor Donald Runs For Black Cover

Currently polling at one percent of the African-American vote and with so few days left before November 8th, why on earth is Trump looking for black support? Even if he were to move the needle slightly, the numbers wouldn’t come close to digging himself out of the hole in which he currently finds himself.

Yes, I’m sure he’s hurt and a bit disappointed that he is on track to get the lowest percentage of the black vote since Robert E. Lee. Who can blame him? He’s a reality TV star and the first lesson in TV is get a cool black friend to show how cool you are. Trump’s only got Omarosa.

Obviously Trump doesn’t give a damn about the black vote. But he does care very much about the non-racist white working and middle class vote.

From the moment he politicized his entertainment persona by becoming the figurehead of the “First African-American-President-Is-Really-an-African-Born Muslim Movement,” he threw his lot in with what is called the “alt-right” (if by “alt” you mean white supremacist/Neo Nazi/truther/militia nutballs). He is proudly and explicitly anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant and the best predicator for identifying a Trump supporter is their fondness for the n-word. So no, black folks, whether we have anything to lose or not, are not going to throw our lot in with a man who’s biggest fan is David Duke.

Since no other explicitly white nationalist candidate has ever made it this far (sorry Pat Buchanan and George Wallace), Trump finds himself in uncharted, choppy waters. He had the hardcore white racist vote at hello, and for now he’s still hanging on to the “racist adjacent:” non-racist whites willing to rationalize or overlook his sexist, anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant dictates.

But it’s only dawning on him now that there aren’t enough of them to put him in the White House.

Trump desperately needs to win back white voters who were once understandably drawn to his projected strength and perceived focus on their issues, but who, increasingly, have been unsettled by his erratic behavior and intemperate ugliness. After all, who wants to vote for an asshole? Doesn’t that make you an asshole yourself?

So of course his recent lip service to African-Americans isn’t actually for African-Americans.

It’s whites that he needs to convince he’s not a racist. He just plays one on TV.

Derailment And How To Manage It

2016-08-19-1471635426-4431424-IMG_4095.JPG

In the world of psychology, derailment describes thought processes that veer off track, go awry, stray from the thought. Like a car that has skidded off the road, the ideas fail to arrive at their destination. In the realm of politics, derailment refers to a tactic by those in power that deflects attention away from complaints about abuse or wrongdoing by introducing an alternative topic. This blog explores derailment as a diversion from a life goal, and how it’s possible to get back on course.

In his journal, the writer John Cheever alluded to a loss of continuity at a critical point in his life. “It seems that in my coming of age I missed a year–perhaps a day or an hour….The consecutiveness of growth has been damaged. But how can I go back and find this moment that was lost?” Although the impact of Cheever’s derailment extends beyond the scope of this blog, his expression highlights the common problem.

In the newly released movie, Florence Foster Jenkins, the heroine, Florence, contracted syphilis from her first husband. As a result, she didn’t bear children and was deprived of a fulfilling family life. That derailment led her to devote her life to singing and supporting the musical world with the fortune she inherited from her father.

We assume an extreme diversion is equivalent to a disaster, but the event may actually represent a chance to recover a “lost” direction or passion. The classic story of The Little Prince (recently made into a popular movie) can be viewed as a metaphorical derailment in the realm of literature. As a young boy, the protagonist of the story drew a boa constrictor swallowing an elephant. But the adults insisted that the drawing resembled a hat. Unimpressed with the child’s skill, the grown-ups redirected him from artistic to practical studies– geography, history, arithmetic, and grammar. “That is why I abandoned, at the age of six, a magnificent career as an artist,” the protagonist says, justifying his profession as a pilot. Years later, his plane crashed in the middle of the desert, and he was visited by a little prince who commanded him to draw. The little prince may well represent the pilot’s imagination or alter ego that harbored his desire to become an artist.

In real life, a patient of mine, Ms. W., experienced a serious depression, a kind of psychological crash. During her hospitalization, she recalled that in her youth, she had aspired to become a singer. In the hospital, she had the opportunity to connect her depression with the long-forgotten ambition. Upon her recovery, she studied voice and became a successful musician.

Conclusion: Although we can’t undo the past, we can recognize a derailment and take action to get back on track.

To Fight Zika Beyond Florida We Need Better Sex Education

In light of the recent news that Zika virus could stay in semen for more than six months ― twice as long as scientists previously though the virus could be detected ― it’s time for the United States to ramp up its focus on the major mechanism for Zika virus transmission after mosquitos: sex.

“For the public health community, Zika represents an unprecedented emergency,” Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, wrote in the Journal of the American Medical Association in August.

“Never before, to our knowledge, has a mosquito-borne virus been associated with human birth defects or been capable of sexual transmission,” Frieden wrote. “The effects of brain damage due to microcephaly and consequences of other Zika-related birth defects are likely devastating, lifelong, and costly.”

As Zika virus spreads, with at least 55 countries and territories reporting local transmissions, according to the CDC, and the United States reporting two areas of active transmission in Florida, health officials like Frieden have called for increased safe-sex messaging, even for people outside active Zika zones.

New York City is ramping up its public health messaging on sexually transmitted infections to include Zika virus in coming weeks, The New York Times reports. The campaign will feature posters, fliers, radio and television ads, in addition to deploying community health workers to communicate the risks of sexually transmitted Zika in person. 

Florida’s sex ed blunder

But not everyone is making public health a priority. In Florida’s Broward County, which is adjacent to Miami-Dade County, where active Zika transmissions are occurring, abstinence-only rhetoric is trumping public safety ― at least for now.

According to Miami news station WSVN 7News, Broward County removed two AIDS Healthcare Foundation billboards that featured unrolled condoms reminding people that safe sex “prevents Zika transmissions.”

The Fort Lauderdale mayor’s office and tourism board pressured the company to take down the signs, Michael Kahane, a spokesman for the foundation, told the station. “They felt, I guess, that they could impact tourism,” Kahane said. “I find it completely disgusting.”

Still, neither the mayor’s office nor the tourism board is taking credit for the sign’s removal, so it’s unclear who is behind the billboard takedown.

We still don’t know enough to write strong health policies

Using condoms is key to curbing sexually transmitted infection, including Zika virus, but health experts cautioned against overstating Zika’s sexual transmission risk compared to the larger risk of transmission via mosquitos.

Travel-related Zika virus is a major concern. The CDC currently recommends that pregnant women avoid traveling to areas with active Zika transmissions and use condoms or abstain from sex if their partner has traveled to a Zika outbreak area in the last six months. 

Dr. Federico Laham, the medical director of infectious disease at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando stressed that it’s also important for doctors to ask pregnant patients about their travel histories, regardless of whether or not the Aedes aegypti mosquito is present in their areas of practice.

One major challenge for health officials trying to curb sexually transmitted Zika in their respective cities is that it’s difficult to craft definitive public health and safe sex recommendations, because no one knows for sure how long Zika virus can stay active ― or remain capable of transmitting infection ― in men’s semen. 

That information is “very important if you are trying to craft a prevention method to your community,” Laham told The Huffington Post. “Any couple expecting a child will live with a lot of anxiety. It’s important for health officials to deliver a clear message.”

Zika isn’t the only STI that can hurt unborn babies

For Dr. Jeffrey Klausner, a professor of medicine in the infectious disease and global health divisions at the University of California Los Angeles, focusing on sexually transmitted Zika and the risk it poses to pregnant women misses the point.

“Zika is important, but we need a much broader holistic approach to address infections in pregnant women,” Klausner said. 

He cited congenital syphilis ― when a pregnant woman infected with the disease passes it to her child ― as a more common STI, with equally grave consequences. Indeed, congenital syphilis can cause severe illness, miscarriage, stillbirth and early infant death, as well as blindness, nervous system damage and deformity if left untreated. 

“When things are common and they occur regularly people forget about them,” Klausner said. “We need to remind people of the day-to-day risks.” 

There were 12 cases of congenital syphilis per 100,000 live births in 2014, an increase from 8 per 100,000 live births in 2012, according to the CDC.

Klausner believes defunded health departments and communicable disease programs in the wake of the 2008 recession is making it even harder to address issues like congenital syphilis and Zika virus.

He’s also frustrated by Congress, which failed to pass a Zika bill before leaving for summer vacation this year.

“You can’t trade the health of one population because of ideological views,” he said. “When Congress does come back, it’s going to be important for local constituents to demand a response.”

‘The Daily Show’ Puts Trump Supporters Through Some ‘Extreme Vetting’

This week, presidential candidate and lifelong Quiet Game loser Donald Trump laid out an “extreme vetting” philosophy that he would put in place for non-citizens wishing to enter the United States, saying that we should only let in people who “embrace a tolerant American society.”

Hmm, yeaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh …

“Daily Show” correspondent Jordan Klepper went to a Donald Trump rally in Wisconsin to see if any of his supporters would pass a similar vetting process.

For nearly 35 years, Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho was homeless, living on the streets of Sao Paulo, Brazil. He mostly kept to himself, writing poetry from the same spot every single day ― a median that he called “The Island.” Locals came to know of Sobrinho, but no one seemed to pay him much mind. Until, that is, Shalla Monteiro walked by.

Monteiro befriended the unkempt man and soon learned that he had been holding onto a big dream over the decades. 

“Raimundo always wanted to publish a book of his poems, and as a person who lived in the streets, [this] became an impossible dream,” Monteiro says. “I felt I needed to do something.”

Sobrinho signed each piece of poetry as “The Conditioned,” so Monteiro set up a Facebook page called Ocondicionado to publish his works. Soon after, passersby started seeing Sobrinho differently.

“People started to get close to him,” Monteiro says. “To talk to him, to go there, just say, ‘Hey, I saw you. I want to know you. I always wanted to know, but I didn’t have the courage to come and talk.’”

Then, something life-changing happened.

“I got a message from his brother,” Monteiro says.

Sobrinho’s brother reached out and then went to see Sobrinho in person. “When I arrived at The Island, I found a man in the midst of garbage, hairy and unshaved, with no hygiene whatsoever,” he recalls. “This person was my brother.”

Sobrinho’s brother asked Sobrinho come to live with him, and the family reunited after decades apart. 

“My brothers are still alive. They’re all alive. He was the one missing to complete the emptiness we had,” Sobrinho’s brother says. “He is not a guest. He is part of the family. With my children and my wife, he is an integral part.”

No longer homeless, Sobrinho was then able to take his poetry to the next level, with Monteiro’s help: His book of poetry, #Inconditional, was published in December of 2015. One of Sobrinho’s own pieces of poetry beautifully sums up the power of his story.

Damned is the man who abandons himself. These six words show that the worse the situation is, never, ever should a man consider it lost.

“His dreams [are] coming true,” Monteiro says. “After so long.”

5 Phrases Every People-Pleaser Should Learn Right Now

Doormat. This was the word that stood out when I Googled the term “People-Pleaser”.

For the people-pleaser, the thought of confrontation, disapproval or disagreement can spark a visceral response – sweaty palms, a nervous twitch – it’s uncomfortable and sometimes overwhelming. So, for instant gratification we often default to the agreeable. A people-pleaser says “count me in”. We get a pat on the back, while inwardly cursing our short-comings. We vow never to do it again, yet seem to find ourselves in situation after situation questioning how we ended up here, or how we got dragged into this.

Eventually though, the default “yes” will not serve our personal growth. How can we truly know ourselves when we cannot define our preference, our desire, our dislike?

What would happen if we stopped accommodating everyone else’s agenda, and started nourishing our own? Would everyone hate us? No. Would our list of 100 closest friends shrink to less than half that? It probably should. Would we be happier? Without a doubt.

Here are five go-to phrases that every people-pleaser should learn right now:

1. I’d rather not
I once said “yes” and ended up at a “party” consisting of four guys playing video games while talking about how alcohol made it easier to converse with girls…
Let’s just say, I should have said “no”.
The point is, we don’t need a convincing excuse to not do something. In fact, we don’t need ANY excuse. No one can argue with “I’d rather not”, because this is a declaration of personhood, not a semblance for debate.

2. I want [insert what you want here]
We all dread the daunting question, “what TV show do you want to watch?” Or worse, “where do you want to eat?” We think to ourselves: “Is it weird that what I really want is an Indian Buffet at 10am?”. And truthfully, yes, that is a little weird. But who cares? Instead of being honest, we tend to default to, “I don’t know, what do you want?” or “anything is fine”. But anything is not fine. Nine times out of ten, we know exactly what we want. And what we want is a damn Indian Buffet. Say it. Save the “I don’t know’s” for watching Jeopardy.

3. I suggest
Take ownership. We always seem to know which route is fastest, that it would probably be a good idea to make a reservation BEFORE the dinner rush, and that nothing good happens after midnight. Sometimes, we may even share our insight. But not very eloquently. Countless times I have heard myself start a sentence with, “maybe we should…”. Here is the problem, “maybe” deflates conviction. Your more outspoken counterpart will most definitely override your contribution with a (potentially) not so good alternative. Practice saying this, “I suggest we make a reservation tonight”. And then make it. The pay off? Food, when and where you want it.

4. Let me get back to you
One of the most detrimental moves for the people-pleaser is answering too quickly. Why? Because we will, without fail, say yes. To everything. Time is our savior. Rather than blurting out “yes”, this added time gives us a chance to decide if the proposed plan is something we are interested in, or not. Another great thing about waiting, is that you don’t have to respond in person. We live in the age of technology – email responses are perfectly acceptable. Yes, breakups should probably be done in person, but declining a social invitation, or responding to a coworker about covering their shift, can absolutely happen over email. It gives everyone involved the chance to think about how they would actually like to respond, without being put on the spot. Try something like, “I’ve decided to stay in tonight”, or “thanks so much for the invite, but I’m unavailable”. Taking the time to get back to someone will ultimately save you from having to make up a lame excuse to cancel a plan last minute, when you never intended on attending in the first place.

5. I need
What do you need? Some alone time? A walk outside? Quiet? Take what you need, it’s yours to have. If others can’t get on board with you doing you, you should probably reevaluate your involvement with them. Everyone is entitled to take care of their own needs, so honor yours.

The Olympics Chased The Bogeyman Away

Being Muslim in America has been anything but easy this past year. The presidential election has been particularly hard on many Muslim-American children’s psychological well-being. For my children, it started back in September, when Ben Carson said he didn’t believe a Muslim should be elected president. A few days later, my 7- and 9-year-old daughters came home from school with stories of a man who was going to be president and who hated Muslims. We talked about President Obama and how not too long ago many Americans thought a black man would never be president.

After the Ben Carson comment, I made sure not to watch news programs around my children. However, they came home from school talking about Trump, his wall and his plans to ban Muslims.

My 7-year-old was vocally the most scared. She would whimper when an image of Donald Trump appeared on TV. To her, he was the bogeyman. She was convinced he would become president and “build a wall around us because we were Muslim.”

I always taught my children to be proud that they were both Muslim and American.

I told her he wouldn’t be president (I honestly didn’t believe he’d get this far), and even if he did win, he couldn’t do anything to us because we were American citizens. She was a second grader, and didn’t really understand what a citizen was. She said, “Baba (Dad) wasn’t born in America. Will they make him leave?” I reassured her baba was an American citizen and nothing would happen to him or to our family.

I always taught my children to be proud that they were both Muslim and American. Our religion teaches us to serve humanity, and our country is great because its people serve and respect each other. My children love their faith and their country, but their identity has been under attack by political candidates this election season. What they hear from friends at school and on TV is that there’s something wrong or un-American with being a Muslim in this country.

My children changed this past year. They are more conscious of how strangers look at us. They are bilingual but too embarrassed to speak Arabic in public. They worry about me in the hijab (the headscarf) after having encountered a few Islamophobic incidents.

Then the Olympics happened. We’ve never been big sports fans, but we were watching the opening ceremonies, and my children were mesmerized by the glitz and the display of different cultures from around the world. They would jump up and down every time a woman wearing hijab walked into the arena. “Look Mama! A hijabi! She’s in the Olympics!” These women were proud, accomplished athletes and came from Muslim countries around the world.

When Team USA walked into the arena, my daughters were surprised by a beautiful Olympian who wore a hijab. She was in the front row of Team USA. Their eyes lit up as they cheered, “USA! USA!” She represented their identity to the world. She showed the world that being Muslim in America was very much an American thing. Her status as an Olympian was a shining example of a strong Muslim American woman

My children now dream of meeting Ibtihaj Muhammad. They want to be Olympians, just like Ibtihaj. They love Simone Biles and Laurie Hernandez and jump off our couches trying to practice fancy gymnastic moves. Generally, I don’t allow jumping on my couches, but I lax the rule for the Olympics.

They are proud that the greatest Olympic athlete, Michael Phelps, is an American, and they should be because he’s representing their country. Their sense of identity has been normalized again. Instead of walls and deportation that no 7- and 9-year-old should worry about, they are counting the number of medals the USA has won.

For the time being, media focus has shifted to sportsmanship and friendly competition. My children aren’t bombarded with messages attacking their faith and identity. The bogeyman has gone to sleep for these few weeks. Hopefully, he’ll stay away for a long time.

Are You Happy?

2016-08-18-1471478581-491947-photo4.jpg

Are you happy?

You know the “Zip-a-dee-doo-dah” kind of happy. Happy thoughts. Happy life. Happy you. That may seem like a tall order, right? Why is it that happiness seems to come and go, is saved for special occasions — and often alludes us all together? Maybe it’s because we are looking for love in all the wrong places — and I’m talking self-love to start. If only we could add it to our Amazon shopping carts and with one click, done, a box of happy would arrive at our doorstep. Guess what? I know I’m being a little silly here, but it kind of is that simple.

Even when I first typed the words, Are you happy, I had to take pause. A voice inside my head answered, Yes, for the most part — but then the, I’d be happier if or when’s rolled in. It only reaffirmed that I needed to write this blog — and that I needed to do some truth-telling.

Start here:
• Are you happy?
• What makes you happy?
• Do you need certain stars to align in order to be happy?
• What sucks the happy right out of you?

Continue here:
• If you’re not happy, why?
• If you know what makes you happy — do more of that
• Create the circumstances and situations that support your happy
• Reevaluate your relationship to the things that suck your happy from you – do less of them

The amazing thing is that as simple as all of the above may seem, the majority of us aren’t keeping those lists in check — and we’ve got an arsenal of excuses to support why we can’t have what we desire. Hello?

Have you ever watched a dog chase its own tail? That’s kind of what it looks like. I really want to be happy, but I’m going to do nothing to support it and see what happens.

I have conversations with people all the time who are in relationships (love and friendship) that pull them down, jobs that deplete them and health situations that don’t support their wellness — believing things can’t change. Look, we all get stuck. But know this: Anything can change when you have a willingness to shift gears from fear to faith.

Happy is not wrapped up in a future destination, it’s in the here and now. You don’t have to rush out to find a guru, head off to a retreat or do anything other than settle back into yourself. This is an inside job. I think one of the main reasons we just can’t quite hold onto ‘happy’ is because of the paths we are choosing to get there.

Think about how often we work to achieve a goal, let’s say in our professional lives — and then upon achieving that goal our head is already onto the next pursuit. We’re always one step ahead, missing the celebratory ride in between.

How often do we give our power away to others? It’s as if we hand them the remote control to our emotions and say, So, how are you going to make me happy today? Ridiculous, but true. I spent much of my life in that self-destructive mode because I didn’t know better and let’s face it, old habits fit like gloves. And somewhere between fear and the addiction to behavior patterns — we lose ourselves.

Happiness can’t be assigned to a person, place or thing: I’ll be happy when…I find my perfect partner, I have enough money in the bank, I attain a certain amount of success in my career, etc. Nope, you’re not going to find it there.

We may yearn for a love partner, a better job, or more money. That’s real — I get it. But I’m finding that the way to be fully content is to figure out how to make peace with where you are in this moment — even amidst life’s messiness. Here’s the thing: Happy is a superpower. It is resilient, intuitive, contagious, and heart-centered. It is your greatest tool.

When you are connected to your own happy place, there is room for you to feel your other emotions as well: sadness, grief, disappointment. We can’t avoid the human experience, but we can choose how we are going to travel through it. And when happy is a permanent resident you will find that your bounce-back from life’s intermittent setbacks is easier and often much shorter.

You don’t have to have it all figured out. But you do need to get clear and honest with yourself. Get rid of the energy vampires in your life, the people who drain you or fill you will negativity and self-doubt. Collect a new tribe that hold you accountable and become your dream-keepers. Release your own limiting beliefs and excuses. Take care of that beautiful physical vessel. Take an action step (even a baby step) on behalf of your dreams.

At the lowest moment in my life when my back had given out, lying in bed, I began to write in a small notebook. They were mere ramblings of inspiration, but they made me happy. Those ramblings helped me envision beyond my current circumstance. I would never have believed then that years down the road, I would ‘come out’ as a writer, that I would create a successful digital magazine and that my dreams would continue to flourish. But that’s the way it goes. It’s not all a saccharine-sweet ride, and we may create some chaos along the way. And yet, it’s possible.

I gave my power away for much of my life. I spent decades sweating the small stuff. But as the sassy me likes to say, The past is the past and it’s looking at your ass. And future-tripping isn’t going to get you anywhere either. You might as well be here now.

Life is a daily realignment for me. But you know what, I am happy. There is lots of love in my house and that love continues to fertilize my dreams — reminds me to stay present, have gratitude, find ways to serve others, to connect to nature and carve out solitude. That’s what I call my happy place. I do know that the more I take care of me — the more happy I have to give and receive.

Don’t settle for happy enough.

How To Find Your Calling (From 5 People Who Found Theirs)

Why does our culture perpetuate the belief that “finding oneself” is an age-specific phase, reserved only for angst-ridden teenagers and wanderlust-stricken 20-somethings? The notion of finding a passion is all-too-frequently aligned with youth and impulsivity, but truthfully, we’re all quietly seeking our next challenge, our next calling.

We’re of the belief that it’s never too late to course correct your life, and given the job-hopping numbers, we’re probably not the only ones. Though the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics does not regularly track career changes, in a recent study of late-period baby boomers it found that people will hold an average of 11 different jobs throughout their lifetime, and for some, as many as 15 jobs. (For younger Americans, that number will likely be much higher.) To help you take that eager leap, we’ve partnered with Chevrolet Malibu to bring you these courage-inducing tips for finding your passion, from five people who found theirs.

1. 

When Jim Stevens suddenly and unexpectedly lost his vision in 1993, he believed his days as an artist were over. A stroke in his visual cortex ― brought on by bullet fragments that had been there since 1970, when he was shot serving as a U.S. Army sergeant during combat in Vietnam ― rendered him legally blind, except for a small pinhole of vision in both eyes.

In the wake of the loss of his teaching job at the University of Colorado in Denver, paired with a separation from his wife, Stevens quickly sidelined his hobbyist artistic endeavors in order to raise his two pre-teen daughters as a blind, single parent. After seven years, Stevens decided that his circumstances weren’t going to hold him back from his art. “In 2000, I [was] determined to reinvent myself and become a full-time artist despite my disability,” he says. “I began by finding a variety of special lenses to help with my technical skills and then I struggled for the next two years to relearn my craft without the eyesight an artist so desperately needs.”

Stevens, who dabbled in art from a young age, remembers watching his grandmother create drawings and watercolors; he was fascinated by the way in which a mind subjectively captures an image and recreates it on canvas. Since 2000, his work has been featured in galleries across the country and he’s written three books on art. “I lost my eyesight in just 30 minutes,” he says. “My career, my wife, my future, and my self-worth soon followed. I finally had to accept being blind, but once I did, I also accepted the fact that to have a life, I would have to reinvent my life.”

2. 

Eight months after her stepdad passed away in 2010, Blair Nicole knew it was time for a change. She was working a comfortable job as a stockbroker, but felt an itch for change that just wouldn’t calm. She began packing up her stuff and walked out.

Fast forward five years, to the summer of 2015, and that same itch settled in after the end of a long-term relationship. “I’d always toyed with the idea of traveling and working remotely, and knew the only way I would do it is if I just jumped in,” Nicole says. “I immediately started selling my furniture and belongings, and started booking plane tickets. I haven’t looked back.”

Since last August, she’s been living life as a “digital nomad”, as the CEO of her own PR firm. She and her 4-year-old son Dominic have been to nine states, over 30 major cities and two countries over the past 10 months, and have been checking items off their bucket list left and right, like skydiving in San Diego, hang gliding in Draper, Utah, and reveling in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. “People always ask me how I do it, but you’d be amazed how adaptable people really are when they’re committed to a situation or outcome,” she says. “The secret is to just jump in and find a good support network to help you and encourage you along the way.”

3.

Veronica Winters moved from Moscow to the U.S. in the late ’90s “with one suitcase and lots of naiveté,” she says. She began taking art classes ― which eventually led her to pursue a BFA and MFA ― to break up the monotony of housework when her son was born, but being an introverted foreigner proved its own unique challenge. “The next two years after graduation were the hardest time in my life,” she says. Winters had “no connections to become a successful artist. There were hard times, and late at night I often thought of giving up and just letting it go.”

Once her son was in middle school, she began commuting from Pennsylvania to New York for additional painting and drawing classes. She eventually started teaching classes from her own in-house studio, but without the promise of anything long-term or stable. She relocated to Florida ― for what was a time “of soul searching and solitude,” she says ― and her family shortly followed.

Though it’s been a long, often stressful road, Winters says she’s learned the irreplaceable value in listening to intuition. Her work has been featured in various art magazines and publications, and she frequently has pieces commissioned. “I’ve decided to take charge of my life, to find strength within me, to have concrete goals to achieve results that I could live with,” she says. “Do what’s right for you, and not necessarily for everyone else around you. You can’t make everybody happy if you are not happy yourself.”

4. 

At 15, Crystal Rice dropped out of high school and ran away from her Maryland home, where she lived with her father. It was the dead of winter, and she was living in a tent in the middle of the woods, and stealing food from grocery stores to get by. After a brief stint staying with her then-boyfriend (unbeknownst to the rest of his family), she ended up in southern Virginia with her mother.

Fast forward several years, and she ultimately put herself through both undergraduate and graduate school, pursuing her life’s passion: psychology. “I loved that psychology got down to someone’s core, past all the persona and masks that people wear,” she says. But after starting a family of her own and being the primary breadwinner in a higher paying, more reliable profession, she fell into what she calls Batman Syndrome. “By day, I was a mild mannered IT project manager. By night and on the weekends, I was trying to keep my head in the psychology field one way or another.”

Because of her difficult past, Rice found strength and happiness doing one thing: helping others be happy, through therapeutic consulting, where she’s blended both her passions and her skills. “I am a strong believer in the concept of balance,” she says. “If everyone followed what paid the most, or only wanted the “sexy” jobs, then our society would fail. Following your passion provides the world its balance, and trust me when I tell you it will provide balance in you as well.”

5. 

When his mother, Nancy, was diagnosed in 2012 with Stage 4 cancer in her sternum, the last things that Darin Hulslander was concerned about were her exercise and fitness habits. Yet in order to undergo surgery to remove the tumor, she had to strengthen her heart. She hired a personal trainer for three months and set to work.

After the surgery, she was encouraged to undergo chemotherapy, but decided against it. “She’s elderly and didn’t want to spend perhaps her final years in chemo and in pain,” Hulslander says. “She focused on improving her diet by eating whole foods and working with a nutritionist. Six months later they did an MRI and couldn’t find a tumor on her.”

Today, Hulslander has dedicated his life to helping others heal through fitness and nutrition, because he witnessed it work firsthand. “The doctors had no clue about how it could have happened and still don’t,” he says. Her pursuit of a better life helped transition my career into a full-blown business. It truly became my calling when you see the person you love most heal themselves through exercise and food.”

In between the milestones that we proudly celebrate are so many little moments that often slip by. The All-New 2016 Chevrolet Malibu is committed to helping you celebrate all the moments ― big and small.

Baltimore’s Police Department Is Being Represented By A Neo-Nazi Lawyer Over Wrongful Arrest Of Black Man

A neo-Nazi is representing the Baltimore Police Department in a lawsuit claiming officers fabricated evidence in order to send an black man to jail for a murder he didn’t commit, according to an investigation by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Glen Keith Allen, who works in the Baltimore City Law Department, is a longtime supporter of the neo-Nazi National Alliance, the report says. He is now defending the city in a 2015 lawsuit filed by Sabein Burgess, who was imprisoned for 19 years before being released and having the charges dismissed in 2014.

The SPLC has financial records dating back to 2002 that appear to prove Allen is deeply involved with neo-Nazi groups.

“Allen’s history with organized racism and anti-Semitism is deep. Records obtained by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) show he was a dues-paying member of the National Alliance for years,” the report says. “Allen was also a subscriber to the NA’s racist publications, purchased entrance to a Holocaust denial conference the group held and bought a Holocaust denial DVD the group sold.”

Allen, according to the SPLC, has contributed to the American Eagle Party National Committee and is possibly the vice chairman/parliamentarian or attorney for the NA.

A damning report from the Justice Department released last week shows that Baltimore police officers routinely abused residents’ civil rights, performed unconstitutional searches, failed to hold cops accountable for misconduct and, in some cases, were told by supervisors to target black residents and “lock up all the black hoodies.”  

Baltimore has been in the national spotlight since April 2015, when 25-year-old Freddie Gray suffered a fatal spinal cord injury in police custody ― a death widely viewed as one caused by police misconduct.

“Baltimore’s Litigation and Claims Practice Group is arguably one of the most aggressive and successful defenders of police misconduct in the country,” the SPLC’s report says, before pointing to extreme lengths the office will take to avoid paying settlements in these cases.

Baltimore paid out around $ 12 million in police misconduct cases between 2010 and 2014, according to a 2015 Wall Street Journal analysis. Civil rights violations, alleged shootings, beatings and wrongful imprisonment brought on the most expensive payouts.

Meditation For A Blessed Election

I started writing guided meditations more than ten years ago. As a health and wellness coach I write them for myself to prepare for important trips and events. I write them for friends who are having medical procedures. I help clients write them. And a while back, when this toxic election season was really beginning to affect my peace of mind, I decided to write one specifically about the election. I, like many other Americans of both parties, was having “Trump anxiety.”

At the same time it’s not just politics on my mind. I have been moved and saddened by the many police shootings and terrorist attacks during this difficult year, and kept wondering what I could do to make a difference. How could I use my gifts to help?

I was hesitant to share this publicly because anything related to politics brings down a rain of toxicity and hatred upon the writer and I didn’t want to have that directed at me. After sharing it in my writers’ group and seeing its impact on several listeners, I decided I would share it with my intention for the best possible outcome.

Feel free to take it and make it your own, changing the wording as needed to suit your worldview. I hold on to the hope that most Americans want to feel good about our democratic process and our country. I love the idea of people across the country reading versions of this every day, amplifying its effect in the world. I hold on to the belief that it will make a positive impact on our country in the coming months.

What Are Your Options if Medicaid Goes Broke

Americans are living longer than ever.

With that longer life span comes increasing reliance on long-term healthcare services.

And costs associated with in-home care services, nursing homes, and other residential facilities are on the rise.

The primary payer for long-term care is Medicaid, the joint federal and state program designed to help Americans with limited incomes pay medical costs.

“Government programs such as Medicaid and the like may not necessarily be around going forward to provide assistance,” said Money Crashers finance expert David Bakke.

Bakke told Healthline that Medicaid is projected to run out of money in the year 2030, or perhaps as early as 2026.

“Medicaid will certainly have a challenge when it comes to handling the strain of long-term care for seniors and retirees,” he said. “You could make the argument that already the needs of the elderly aren’t being met in a satisfactory fashion under the current system. In fact, 37 percent of long-term care costs are currently being met with out-of-pocket funds.”

According to Bakke, some states are putting the onus on providers to keep care costs under control.

The realities of long-term care

Melissa Benjamin is a home care worker in Colorado and a leader in the Home Care Fight for $ 15. She’s in the trenches of home care services every day.

In addition to our aging population, she believes other factors are fueling the Medicaid crisis.

In an interview with Healthline, Benjamin said there’s already a shortage of home care workers, and she expects it to get worse. As more experienced workers age out of the workforce or look for employment elsewhere, fewer workers are willing to take up the slack.

“It’s no longer a viable career,” said Benjamin. “Low pay and lack of benefits keep people from choosing this type of work.”

The worker shortage is creating a care gap that forces difficult choices. When family members shoulder more of the care burden, it’s often at the expense of their own employment. Placing a loved one in a facility isn’t always the best option for them or for the family budget.

Although Medicaid covers both types of care, in-home care is often less expensive by several thousand dollars a month.

“It’s one reason I fight for home care. I believe by making home healthcare a viable career, we can keep more people in their homes and save the states money in the long run,” said Benjamin.

For some people, nursing home care is a must. But Benjamin believes many others can be happier and healthier being cared for in their own homes.

“In Colorado, about 10,000 people become seniors every day,” she said. “That’s a strain, and it’s true all around.”

Then there’s the gender gap.

At 37 years old, Benjamin is already concerned about her own healthcare needs as she ages.

“A higher percentage of home care workers are women. We make less, have fewer benefits, and pay less into Social Security. Often, women who cared for their husbands are left alone and needing care themselves. Plus, we live longer, so that time is more challenging.”

In Benjamin’s experience, long-term care insurance policies can save the day. The key is to sign up when you’re younger and rates are at their best.

Unfortunately, when rates rise, many aren’t able to keep paying the premiums. That can result in having to sell off assets to apply for Medicaid.

“I’ve held the hands of people in facilities as they cry. They want to go home, but their home has been sold to pay for facility care,” she said.

Planning for long-term care

Seniors, soon-to-be seniors, and caregivers can’t start planning soon enough. It’s a complicated issue and there’s no one-size-fits-all solution.

As alternatives to insurance and government programs, Bakke recommends a health savings account when applicable, a home equity line of credit, and in some cases, a long-term care annuity.

“In some instances,” said Bakke, “you might be better off foregoing long-term care insurance and paying for whatever costs are left over out of pocket, because of the high cost of paying for insurance coverage in that area.”

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, most seniors can’t afford the out-of-pocket costs of long-term care.

Jennifer FitzPatrick, author of “Cruising through Caregiving: Reducing the Stress of Caring for Your Loved One,” would like to see more public education about long-term care and Medicaid.

“There really needs to be a paradigm shift so older adults and their families are not counting on Medicaid because of misunderstanding,” said FitzPatrick, who has worked as a gerontologist and geriatric social worker for more than 25 years.

“I’d love to see Medicaid encourage more people to consider long-term care insurance, which covers much more than Medicaid can,” FitzPatrick told Healthline. “I wish I saw more being done so caregivers and older adults weren’t in crisis.”

FitzPatrick recommends consulting with a certified elder law attorney.

Benjamin and Fitzpatrick agree that consumers have a lot more options when using private funds than they do when using Medicaid.

“It’s important also for families and older adults to know that often when they do use a Medicaid benefit for a nursing home, for example, they aren’t getting as much choice,” said FitzPatrick. “Sometimes patients and caregivers are dissatisfied with the nursing home options available for a direct Medicaid admission.”

Americans are optimistic. We tend to underestimate the risk of needing long-term care.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that half of seniors over age 65 will have a health problem and need assistance for two years or less.

One in seven will need assistance for more than five years. Those turning 65 now can expect $ 138,000 in future long-term care costs. In many cases, costs will be much higher.

Having a long-term care policy is a good idea, if you can afford it. Most can’t.
As of 2014, fewer than 8 percent of Americans have private long-term care insurance.
Medicaid was never meant to cover long-term care for so many.

“I can’t count the number of caregivers who have incorrectly assumed that Medicare or Medicaid would pay for assisted living or indefinite home care services,” said FitzPatrick.

Donald Trump Is The Candidate From Breitbart News

NEW YORK ― When Donald Trump descended the escalator at Trump Tower on June 16, 2015 and launched into a campaign kickoff speech that included railing against Mexico for supposedly sending drug dealers and “rapists” over the border, Steve Bannon saw a Breitbart News reader at the podium. 

“That speech really talked about the themes that have been on Breitbart,” Bannon told The Huffington Post last month during the Republican convention in Cleveland. “His thing on illegal alien crime was literally taken off the pages of Breitbart.”

Breitbart News, a self-described “populist, nationalist” site, has been viewed as Trump’s biggest media megaphone throughout the 2016 election, amplifying his positions and blasting Republican critics and other media outlets. But as Bannon, the site’s executive chairman, temporarily leaves his position to become the Trump campaign’s chief executive, the perception of who’s been boosting whom gets murky. 

“So wait, Breitbart is now running the Trump campaign when all this time we thought Trump was running Breitbart,” tweeted Dan Pfeiffer, former Obama White House communications director. 

Washington Post reporter Bob Costa suggested that was the case Wednesday morning on MSNBC: “The beating heart of Trumpism started at Breitbart.”

Trumpism didn’t start, however, with Andrew Breitbart, the late founder and media provocateur. It started when Bannon, a former Goldman Sachs banker, filmmaker and conservative activist, took over the site after its namesake founder died in 2012. 

Dubbed the “most dangerous political operative in America” last year by Bloomberg Businessweek, Bannon has led a site that’s increasingly taken hard-line positions on immigration and trade while dropping bombs on Republican establishment figures deemed insufficiently conservative ― from former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor to current House Speaker Paul Ryan.

The site’s traffic grew to more than 30 million unique readers last month, thanks to its pugilistic style and Trump boosterism ― and much to the dismay of many in Republican media and political circles.

“Bannon has ruined the Breitbart News operation by running it as a Trump super-PAC full of sensationalized stories and Trump fan fiction, rather than the sharp, muscular, anti-establishment vision the late Andrew Breitbart had for the enterprise,” Republican consultant Matt Mackowiak wrote Wednesday in The Hill. 

Conservative radios hosts and Trump critics Charlie Sykes and Erick Erickson also took aim when news of the latest campaign shake-up emerged. 

Stephen Hayes, a Weekly Standard senior editor and Fox News contributor, declared Wednesday that Trump had chosen to “end his campaign living in the alternate reality that Breitbart creates for him on a daily basis.” 

Though Bannon has expressed admiration for Roger Ailes, the former Fox News chief and political operative who is reportedly advising Trump ahead of next month’s presidential debates, he’s said Fox is “not nearly as right-wing” as Breitbart.

“Fox, in fact, has been a globalist, not particularly nationalist site,” he told HuffPost last month. “And I think the mainstream media misses that Fox is not nearly as right-wing or conservative as Breitbart. And we consider ourselves the litmus test of the populist, nationalist news reporting in the country and we’re very proud of that.”

Given Bannon’s proclivities, the Trump campaign under his watch isn’t expected to tone things down or try appealing to moderates ― in other words, do what a convention Republican candidate would normally do to court the broadest swath of general election voters. 

Instead, it’s more likely a Trump campaign under Bannon will be even less restrained when targeting Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, possibly dredging up the decades-old scandal of President Bill Clinton’s infidelity in the White House. He signaled that was the plan in the Bloomberg News profile: “There’s a whole generation of people who love the news but were 7 or 8 years old when this happened and have no earthly idea about the Clinton sex stuff,” he said. 

That profile said Bannon urged Trump to make a trip to the U.S.-Mexico border early in his campaign and Breitbart News’ laudatory coverage of Trump throughout the election season has fueled rumors that he helps fund the site. Last year, Bannon said there was “no financial relationship with Donald Trump as an investor, advertiser or in any other capacity at this time—nor have we ever.” 

Former Breitbart News spokesman Kurt Bardella told HuffPost he believes the relationship has been “much more about a transaction of influence and proximity than financial.”

In May, Bardella, the president and chief executive of Endeavor Strategies, quit representing Breitbart News after two years because the company wasn’t adequately defending reporter Michelle Fields, who said she was roughly grabbed by then-Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Fields, who now writes for HuffPost, quit Breitbart News after the incident, as did several staffers who believed the site was siding with the Trump campaign.

Ben Shapiro, who quit as Breitbart News editor-at-large around the same time, wrote Wednesday that Bannon betrayed Andrew Breitbart’s mission and turned the site “into Trump Pravda for his personal gain.” Shapiro portrayed Bannon as an opportunist latching onto famous conservatives like Sarah Palin as subjects for a fawning documentary. He said the site “embraced” white supremacy under Bannon’s watch, boosting the so-called alt-right. Shapiro described Bannon as a “vindictive, nasty figure, infamous for verbally abusing supposed friends and threatening enemies.”

Bardella, a Republican who does not support Trump, also criticized Bannon’s management style, saying he might call “you up at two in the morning and berate you in a profanity-laced tirade.”

“Having someone as volatile as Bannon being the key adviser to someone who is as volatile and unpredictable as Trump, that is not a recipe for success in campaigning and politics,” Bardella added. “Traditionally, you try to have advisers who don’t try to one-up you on hyperbole. It’s going from bad to worse.”

Bardella also said Bannon had been “absolutely angling for a position of influence” with Trump and had “openly boasted about the idea of serving in the White House, potentially as a chief of staff.”

Bannon did not respond to a request for comment.

Former Breitbart News spokesman Kurt Bardella

However, Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow pushed back against Bardella’s claim that Bannon was seeking a job. Marlow said he was one of Bannon’s closest confidants at the site and “never heard him say anything remotely resembling that.” 

“I think that Steve and Donald Trump are simpatico about a few things,” Marlow said in an interview Wednesday. “I know they’ve known each other for a while and I’m not privy to all their communications in the past ― not by a long shot. I do know they seem to be in agreement really what has been the three-legged stool that has propelled not just Trump but this populist, nationalist movement.

Two of those legs, he said, are policy issues: immigration and trade. The third, he said, is cultural: Trump’s attacks on “political correctness” and the media. “I think this is another area where Trump and Steve are of one mind ― that sometimes being aggressive and throwing political correctness to the wind might be the best tactic.”

In a statement, Breitbart CEO and President Larry Solov described Bannon as “a huge piece of manpower” and said the company knows “he will perform brilliantly in his new role.” 

Bannon has booked Trump a few times on his SiriusXM morning radio show and suggested to HuffPost last month that the site didn’t have a problem getting access to the campaign. But Bannon said Breitbart News’ interest wasn’t in stories of campaign machinations like one might find on Politico, but in those about national sovereignty, immigration and free trade polices that are “really just a globalist donor, corporatist, giveaway.”

“It’s not that Trump’s late to the party,” Bannon added. “But he kind of came and picked up those themes.”

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.

15 Habits That Are Costing You Happiness

1. Comparing yourself to others.

Comparison has been called the thief of joy and for good reason — every minute you spend wishing you were someone else is a minute of your own life wasted. Comparing yourself to others also misses the whole point of your life — to be you, a once-in-humankind blend of gifts, passions and quirks. Stop looking at others and focus on being you and blossoming into YOUR best self.

2. Trying to give to others without giving to yourself.

Buddha once said: You as much as anyone in the entire Universe deserve your love and affection.

He was right. While it is a noble and beautiful thing to want to give to others — the truth is that you can’t give what you don’t have. If you haven’t filled yourself up by spending time alone with your soul, doing the things you love, and praising and appreciating yourself, you will be trying to pour love from an empty cup.

3. Focusing on lack instead of abundance.

It’s easy to look at your life, wardrobe or bank balance and focus on what you don’t have — instead of what you do. If you’re reading this, you already have at least one huge miracle to be grateful for — you woke up today. Switch your lens from lack to abundance and notice the magic surrounding you — fresh air to breathe, food to eat, clothing to wear, the beauty of nature, and endless opportunities for connection, creativity and love. See the miracle of life.

4. Waiting for the day when you finally arrive.

Many of us put our happiness on hold until a day in the future when we are more and have more. There are two problems with this — this very moment is your precious life and should not be overlooked or undervalued; and there will never be a day where you have it all because your soul is constantly expanding and will always give birth to new goals and desires. Decide to be happy with where you are and what you have now — it’s the best decision you’ll ever make, and paradoxically, it will magnetise more blessings and success into your life.

5. Numbing your emotions.

It can be tempting to run away from feelings of sadness, emptiness or discontent — turning instead to the television, food or alcohol. But the truth is if you numb the hard feelings you also numb the good — your heart is the centre of pain but it is also the centre of joy, excitement, passion, inspiration, gratitude and love.

Next time a challenging feeling arises — have compassion for yourself and let it be there without judgment. If you focus on the sensations you are feeling — and not the mental story your mind wants to tell about what it all means — the feeling will soon pass through your body like a cloud passing by in the sky.

6. Letting the world define what success means to you.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to life because every soul is unique. The only way to know what to do with your life is to look within and see what lights you up – follow your intuition and joy and passion. If you try to meet society’s definition of success, you may end up successful but unhappy. Is that really true success? Design a life that feels good on the inside, not one that looks good on the outside.

7. Living in the opinion of others.

Eleanor Roosevelt said: No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Only you can decide if you are enough. You cannot control what other people think of you – and most of the time their opinion has much more to do with their own personal experience and prejudices than it has to do with who you really are. Learn to approve of yourself and you will stress less about impressing others.

8. Excessive thinking and worrying about the future.

Worrying about the future does nothing to change it — but it does rob you of an otherwise peaceful and pleasant experience of the present moment. When you notice yourself overthinking, tune out of your thoughts and back into your body and life happening around you here and now. Happiness is found in the now.

9. Being busy with the wrong things.

Henry David Thoreau said: It is not enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?

Being busy has become a status symbol in the world today — but if you are always busy doing and do not make time for being — for meditating, nature, stillness, relaxing and rejuvenating — you will end up disconnected from your soul and running on empty. Check in with yourself: Is all that busy-ness necessary? What can you cut from your life — to make more time for truly experiencing life?

10. Putting up with things that do not serve you.

Deep down we know when something in our life is not the right for our soul — whether it be a relationship, job, city or habit. Instead of settling for a life that is less than you are capable of, raise your self-worth to the point where you can drop what no longer serves your highest good and move towards what does.

11. Rehashing the same old thoughts instead of choosing new ones.

You are not your thoughts – and you can choose to not take everything they say as the truth. You can also choose to replace or reframe negative thoughts with positive alternatives. Your mind is like a garden – if you take the time to plant seeds in the form of uplifting and empowering thoughts and beliefs, they will flourish into a beautiful worldview that will serve you for the rest of your life.

12. Judging yourself instead of accepting and loving yourself.

While there is nothing wrong with wanting to unleash more of your potential and create a better life for yourself, if you’re going about it from a place of self-judgment and criticism you will constantly feel inadequate and, paradoxically, you will likely remain stuck because your best qualities require the light of your own love and acceptance to come out to play. Love yourself into positive changes.

13. Holding onto grudges from the past.

The truth is the past doesn’t really exist — it is a collection of thoughts and images in the mind, which are probably somewhat distorted because whenever we remember something our brain changes the memory slightly. When we forgive the past, we stop carrying ancient pain and fear into the present moment — and we can see the miracle of today and the opportunities it brings clearly again.

14. Complaining about life instead of taking responsibility.

It is easier to complain about your life than to take responsibility for it — but the truth is you are the only person with the power to implement radical changes. If you want a better life for yourself, be solutions-focused and pour your energy into creating the new instead of wasting your energy fighting the old.

15. Forgetting the bigger picture.

It is easy to sweat the small things — like someone cutting you off in traffic or a snarky remark from a colleague — and let them steal your happiness away. But when you step back and remember the bigger picture and purpose of life — love, enjoyment, growth, unity, appreciation, beauty, connection, creativity — they suddenly lose all significance and you can get back to peace and happiness.

5 Things ‘Childfree’ People Want You To Know

As more Americans choose not to have children and celebrities speak honestly about their own decisions, researchers have begun to examine this choice: Who is more likely to be childfree? Why do people decide to be childfree? How do others perceive the childfree

Survey data rarely distinguishes between the involuntarily childless and the consciously childfree, but 2014 census figures reveal that 47.6 percent of women between age 15 and 44 have never had children ― the highest rate ever tracked. By age 40 to 44, 19 percent of women remain childless, according to a 2014 Pew report.

Now, a new study looks into how people come to this decision. It reveals the decision is rarely a one-time conversation, as past research has suggested, but instead an ongoing discussion a person has internally and with a partner.

Amy Blackstone, a gender sociologist at the University of Maine who specializes in childfree research, hopes that her study helps question the assumption that little boys and girls will grow up to become parents. Breaking down this assumption would give them space as they grow up to decide whether or not parenting is the right choice for them. 

“Right now, girls in particular, but girls and boys both, are raised to imagine themselves as parents of children,” she explained. “But if we more critically thought about the question of whether or not to parent, then everyone would have the opportunity to make the choice that’s right for them.”

“Of course, the childfree would benefit… if we made it a choice rather than an assumption,” Blackstone continued. “But I think parents would benefit, too.”

Blackstone conducted a small, qualitative study to explore how 31 people ― 21 women and 10 men, all but two of them straight ― made their decision to stay childfree. She conducted 60- to 90-minute interviews on their decision-making process, the response they got from others and their reflections on their choice.

Blackstone’s finding that the choice is not a snap judgement but rather a complex and ongoing conversation pushes back on criticism that childfree people are selfish or flippant about their decision not to parent. It also sheds light on how different genders approach the choice and provides some insight into how friends and family help shape a person’s decision.

Read on for five observations from Blackstone’s study, in the words of participants, that get to the root of how people decide to be childfree. All the names from the study are pseudonyms.

1. Childfree people do not make their decisions lightly. 

“I think everybody could say that to get where we are [and maintain our childfree status] has been a constant decision-making process because every relationship you enter into, especially romantically, that’s the expected thing. You’re constantly making a decision about remaining childfree.” — Janet

‘It’s not a decision where you’re like, ‘Okay, today’s the day that I don’t want kids.’ …It’s a working decision.’’ — April

“My partner and I have discussions about ‘Do you think you want to [have children] or not.’ … Time has gone by … and we see the things that are important to us and how we want to live our life. And we see a child as a completely changing point.” — Sarah

‘‘I think I’ve always been deciding that I don’t really want kids.’’ — Annie

“I think this was kind of a decision that we’ve made more than once. You know, at the different times of your life. We’ve been together now eighteen years so, I’d say once every five to six years the topic has come up and I think it’ll probably stop coming up now, given our ages. One of us will say, ‘So, you want ‘em now?’ and the other will say ‘No, no, not really.’ ‘Is anything going on that would make us want them?’ ‘No. No.’” — Robin

2. They’ve observed parenting up close ― and they don’t like what they see.

“At first I grew up assuming that you have kids. You got married and it would happen. But I have older sisters and while growing up, I noticed that [my two much older sisters] put off having kids for a long time. So it became obvious to me that having kids was kind of a choice as opposed to inevitability. Then my two younger sisters got pregnant accidentally and I saw what that did to their lives, where they didn’t have good jobs and [their partners] didn’t have good jobs. They had to make [do] and even now … twenty years later, they’re finally just actually starting to be able to live their life … And so it just kind of gradually to me became like, I’m not gonna have kids. Gradually for me it became, ‘Yeah, I don’t think I need kids.’” — Steve

“I think part of it is as my friends started to have kids, that made me go, ‘Oh I don’t think this is for me.’ Because even if I had wanted kids before that, once they started having kids and losing their freedom and their individuality, that really was a big point for me. It was like, that does not look like the fun, happy family stuff that you think about when you’re young. I think that was a big part, when my friends started having kids, that was when I started thinking, ‘I’m checkin’ out of this.’” — Janet

“I was sort of observing families around me and wondering if I wanted to be a part of that dynamic in our world. … A lot of people with children didn’t look happy. … The majority were definitely stressed out. There was something there that was not inviting me to participate in this lifestyle process.” — Kate

“My brother was in a very bad marriage …The marriage was going downhill and they tried saying ‘Well let’s have kids ‘cause that’s what we do’ or ‘This will make things better,’ and so they had a kid. Two years after that they got a divorce. And my brother loves his daughter but he also says at the same time that, as bad as this is, that he wishes that he never had her. … And once, talking to my sister, she said that when she comes home at night, she picks her daughter up from daycare and her daughter says ‘I want to go back to daycare because I have more fun there.’ I guess I don’t want to do it. That’s [what my sister goes through] a pretty crappy feeling. And [what my brother went through] reaffirmed it.”  — Cory

3. For women, environmental and social responsibility often play a part…

“[Not having children] is responsible. Instead of this kind of blindly following the societal expectation, of this is what you are suppose to do, [not having children] means really taking a lot of factors into consideration. I think about all kinds of stuff. Like I camped over the weekend and I saw the trash factor that people with kids had left and let build up from so much over use of a campsite. I think about stuff like acceptable population levels.” — April

“I’m really just concerned about our world. … Diving more deeply in the social issues, I really think that the world is against the child right now. At this time in our social structure right now it’s not going to be a good thing to have children. We can’t bring them up healthfully.” — Kate

‘‘I was a very environmentally conscious child and my big thing at the time was population control, so that was kind of a forming quality of [my decision not to have children].’’ — Kim

4. …While men’s decisions tended to be internally motivated.

 

“Not having kids is an obvious outcome of our choices. I want to be able to travel, I want to be able to do things that I would not be able to do if I had kids. … It’s just one of the many choices that you make in the balancing act of your life. … And, you know, it’s a rational response to what it means to have a kid and what impact [being a parent] has on the rest of your life.” — Steve

5. They put a lot of thought into what it means to be a parent.

‘‘People who have decided not to have kids arguably have been more thoughtful than those who decided to have kids. It’s deliberate, it’s respectful, ethical, and it’s a real honest, good, fair, and, for many people, right decision.’’ — Bob

‘‘I would like it to be considered a decision just like any other.’’ — Barb

“I wish more people thought about thinking about it. … I mean I wish it were normal to decide whether or not you were going to have children.’’ — Tony

What to keep in mind about this small study 

Nancy Molitor, a practicing clinical psychologist and assistant professor of clinical psychiatry and behavioral science at Northwestern University Feinburg School of Medicine, commended Blackstone for diving into the little-researched and little-understood subject of deciding to become childfree. She was also intrigued by the way gender appeared to affect a person’s decision-making. 

However, she noted that given the small, homogenous sample and the fact that participants weren’t selected at random, it’s next to impossible to draw any general conclusions about the larger childfree population in the U.S. or around the world. The gendered patterns Blackstone observed, for example, need to be validated and confirmed in a much larger population. Some of this is inherent in qualitative research, which lacks the randomized samples and control group that underpins quantitative research. But qualitative research still has its place in the sciences, especially for emerging topics, because of its ability to raise the profile of new ideas, ask questions and generate new hypotheses for future research.

“This is a small, self-selected group,” Molitor said. “That doesn’t mean it’s not interesting, but it’s hard to speculate whether this would have results that would stand up in a larger sample taken from folks in rural Mississippi or the Midwest.”

Molitor called for long-term studies to see if and how childfree people in their 40s (the upper limit of the ages in Blackstone’s study) change their minds as they enter their 50s. Molitor also said that it would be interesting to continue research on the childfree community by examining regional and generational differences across a wider, randomized population.

“A lot of [childfree] research goes back to the 90s,” she explained. “I can say from my own experience and research that studies that were done in the 90s and their decisions about childfree might be very different from a young woman who is a millennial who is making that decision now in 2016.”

Since publishing her research in The Family Journal, Blackstone has interviewed 44 more people, expanding the diversity of her participant pool beyond the mostly white, straight and middle or upper class respondents in her original cohort. She hopes to continue debunking myths and assumptions about childfree people with future research, which will hopefully create a world where childfree people don’t have to defend their choice to others or suffer socially for it. Blackstone herself is childfree, and manages a blog she founded with her husband called “We’re {not} having a baby!

“People don’t really know what to do with us,” Blackstone said. “Sometimes we get left out of, for example, events at friends’ houses if there are children involved, because people assume that we don’t want to be involved. It can be a kind of lonely existence.”

Trump Attempts Another Campaign Reset After Declaring He Won’t ‘Pivot’

WASHINGTON ― Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, his campaign in dire straits, momentarily shifted his focus back to his platform as a “law and order candidate” in a speech Tuesday evening in Wisconsin, after declaring earlier in the day he would not “pivot.”

“Crime and violence is an attack on the poor and will never be accepted in a Trump administration,” Trump said in his speech on race and policing, which largely stuck to a prepared script. 

“The problem in our poorest communities is not that there are too many police,” he continued. “It’s that there are not enough police.”

Trump tied his tough-on-crime remarks to unrest in Milwaukee that followed the weekend fatal police shooting of Sylville K. Smith, a 23-year-old black man arrested at a traffic stop.

The GOP presidential nominee has attempted campaign resets time and time again, trying to defuse controversies and divisive rhetoric that have dogged his candidacy. He buckles down and trades his usual impromptu soliloquies for scripted speeches that discuss policy issues. But these changes rarely last more than a day or two, before being eclipsed by yet another controversy, typically of Trump’s own doing.

Last week, for example, Trump tried to get his campaign back on track with an economic policy speech. A day later, all semblance of a more disciplined Trump disappeared, when he suggested to supporters that they could assassinate Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. After that, he declared (incorrectly) that President Barack Obama founded the Islamic State terror group. The comments dominated the news for several more days, resulting in another disastrous week for his campaign.

Trump’s campaign told The Wall Street Journal earlier Tuesday that it would finally begin airing television ads in crucial battleground states, including those in which Trump trails Clinton in the polls. Trump also released a new campaign “pledge” attempting to portray himself as a more inclusive candidate. 

“I will fight to ensure that every American is treated equally, protected equally, and honored equally,” the pledge states. “We will reject bigotry and hatred and oppression in all its forms, and seek a new future built on our common culture and values as one American people.

In his speech, Trump even tried appealing to African-American voters, who overwhelmingly vote for Democratic candidates. Recent national polls have indicated 1 percent of African-Americans support Trump.

But he delivered his remarks to a nearly all-white audience, in a county with a population that is less than 1 percent black. And his emphasis on “law and order” and tougher policing ignores the concerns of black voters, who have seen their communities gutted by mass incarceration, strict prosecution of non-violent offenses and discriminatory treatment by police.

 

For months, GOP leaders with reservations about Trump have anticipated he would moderate his brash attitude and offensive statements for the general election. Trying to defend Trump on Tuesday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) told CNN that Trump should work on contrasting himself with Clinton.

“The focus has got to be on the two candidates,” Walker said. “If Donald Trump talks about Hillary Clinton or talks about himself in making people’s lives better … and if it’s about her and those issues and about Americans wanting a change, she’s not the right answer.”

In his speech on Tuesday, Trump attacked Clinton several times, assigning her the blame for violent crime in cities, and saying that she is “against the police.”

But with only 12 weeks until the election and nothing suggesting Trump is interested in adjusting his manner and tactics, Republicans are running out hope that Trump will “pivot.” 

Trump even said so himself in an interview earlier Tuesday with a Wisconsin television station.

“I am who I am,” Trump said. “It’s me. I don’t want to change. Everyone talks about, ‘Oh, well you’re going to pivot.’ I don’t want to pivot. I mean, you have to be you. If you start pivoting, you’re not being honest with people.” 

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.

Letting Go Of Toxic People

Clearing our bodies of toxins isn’t always about what we eat or drink. Sometimes removing the poison means you have to make the difficult decision to cut toxic people out of your life to heal your soul.

It’s not an easy task.

Sometimes we aren’t even aware of the damage being caused from the negative energy of a friend or family member.

We don’t notice when someone is trying to control us. The signs are missed. You don’t understand why you are agitated, annoyed, and anxiety ridden in someone’s presence until you take a step back and get in touch with your inner self.

You don’t recognize that you often keep silent and resist the urge to defend yourself, to speak out when you are hearing lies. You give excuses as to why someone behaves the way they do because they have been there for you often over the years and you afraid to lose that perceived support.

I live by my emotions, and don’t always understand why I feel the way I do around certain people. It isn’t until I have “fact” that I can step away.

Maybe it’s the reporter in me — there is always two sides to a story. I try very hard to see every angle. Even if my instincts are telling me to walk away, I have a hard time cutting the anchor because I don’t want to ever be seen as “mean” or “bad.”

My insecurities often get the better of and have been used against me. But slowly I’m starting to emerge from my shell.

Maybe it’s getting older. You start to realize that not everyone has your best interest at heart. Some people like when you are in crisis because it fulfills their want to be needed. They feed off the drama.

They fill your head with half-truths and half-lies, making you believe things about yourself that you know aren’t true. They put a slant on every story in order in order to make themselves able to fit the role they’ve created.

For their story to work you have to be the antagonist or partner in crime because otherwise they will have to come face to face with themselves in the mirror.

It’s not easy to let go of the friendships, relationships and family loyalties that cause you pain.

But in the words of my friend Deb,

“If you need to cut ties, do it, and find those kind-like souls that can feed your spirit.”

The braver you are and recognize and remove those hurting you, the more room you have to be your true self and let the right people in who lift you up, not weigh you down.

Puppy Raisers Make World A Better Place

If you have ever spoken with a person who uses an assistance dog, you know that these dogs change lives. Whether it’s a PTSD dog helping a military person return to “regular life,” a hearing dog providing alerts to a person who cannot hear anything from the doorbell to a fire alarm, or a service dog providing aid to a person lacking mobility, these dogs are capable of miracles.

And what if you were offered the opportunity to be a part of one of those miracles? Most of us would certainly give the offer serious thought.

Last week was all about miracle workers, because it was International Assistance Dog Week (August 7-13), a week designated to honor service dogs and those who make those assistance dogs possible.

The teams of people needed to breed dogs, raise puppies, and train dogs satisfactorily to be service dogs are a hardworking lot, spread throughout the country, and they are affiliated with various service dog organizations.

More miracles, of course, are dependent on a bigger pipeline of puppies. As Katie Malatino, public relations coordinator for Canine Companions for Independence in Santa Rosa, California, says: “In order to provide more assistance dogs free of charge for people with disabilities, Canine Companions is gradually increasing the number of puppies in our program. Additional volunteers are a critical part of our mission.”

Getting Involved

So how do you get involved? Organizations that train service dogs use all sorts of volunteers. People are needed to help with running events, taking a shift at a fair or a mall where the organization is distributing literature, and assisting with all kinds of tasks related to running a business.

But perhaps the most selfless volunteers of all are the people who become puppy raisers. They willingly take a dog into their homes for about sixteen months and agree to take the dog out with them on excursions at all times possible, take them regularly for training classes (in which the puppy raiser also participates), and do everything they can to help this dog become a service animal.

Puppy raisers always know that if they do their jobs well—and the dog’s temperament is right—the dog will go on to live with someone else, being their eyes or their ears or an extra pair of hands. And of course, the dogs will always be the person’s first alert in case of an emergency.
Puppy raisers may be losing a puppy they loved, but they will come as close humanly possible to helping bring about a miracle.

Heartbreaking to have to give up a puppy? Yes. Heartwarming to see that dog function at the highest level in making another person’s life better… you bet!

How Puppy Raisers Feel
Sondra Thiederman is now raising her tenth puppy for Canine Companions for Independence, and she loves doing it. “My most memorable moment was when I handed over the leash of a service dog I raised to the woman she is now assisting. I can only describe it as a profound feeling of ‘ rightness’ – as if something 100% positive was happening and that we were a part of something special.”

Another puppy raiser, Mary Milton, says she is having the time of her life as a puppy raiser. “It is such an honor and privilege to see how these assistance dogs really do help people with disabilities become more independent. It is life-changing for them.”

And a couple, Jolie and Gene Marzo, wrote in an email: “If we can help make someone’s life better by raising an assistance dog, then we are lucky and proud to do it. The person’s smile is all we need to keep us going!”

So are you tempted?

Double-Check Your Plan
Like any other type of volunteer work, you want to make sure you feel comfortable with the organization you contact. You also need to be sure that being an on-the-ground puppy raiser is for you.

To do this, check what assistance dog programs are in your area. Assistance Dogs International sets the standards for assistance dog training. By visiting their site, you can click on a map for your region of the country to see what programs might be near you. Visit, offer to do some onsite volunteering with them (that, too, is very much appreciated), and talk to puppy raisers.

Canine Companions, the largest nonprofit providing assistance dogs, has offices in many parts of the country, and some of their puppy raisers live far afield. However, getting to know an organization is certainly much easier if you have an opportunity to meet some of the people.

Once you have some programs to check out, visit their websites. The Canine Companions website has a list of responsibilities to which puppy raisers commit. Socialization—taking the dog out to experience all types of social situations and public environments—as well as attendance at local obedience classes are two elements that are vital to returning with a well-mannered dog who knows basic commands.

Another organization I have had recent contact with is Susquehanna Service Dogs, located in Pennsylvania. They want puppy raisers somewhat nearby as they provide training classes and veterinary care near their headquarters. In addition to puppy raisers, they keep a list of puppy sitters… people who are familiar with the program so that they can fill in for a day or a week or longer if puppy raiser needs to be away and can’t take the dog with them. This seems like a good way to test out whether full-time puppy raising is for you.

If you decide to apply to be a puppy raiser, you will have plenty of opportunity to have any additional questions answered during the application process.

More Dogs, More Miracles?
“If I hadn’t done this, I never would have had the joy of feeling that my efforts had, in fact, contributed to helping another human being live a more independent and productive life,” says puppy raiser Sondra Thiederman.

Susan Tyson of Susquehanna Service Dogs adds: “We’re changing people’s lives one dog at a time!”

To read about some of the lives that have been changed, see the story about Mary Hill, who needed to retire her first service dog so she is now one year into life with her new dog, or Professor John Terhorst, who teaches chemistry at Vanguard University and knows exactly why his students are always smiling in the classroom. There’s also Heather, a hearing dog, who makes Jeanne Glass’s life complete.

Also read about John Wiesniewski and his dog, Slate. Slate has helped two veterans who suffered symptoms of PTSD. There is also a story about a diabetic alert dog, Ija, who worked in the classroom with a teacher.

And many organizations have active facebook presences where you can keep up on the puppies and the progress with the people with whom they are eventually paired.

Hillary: Be Still, My Beating Heart

When my now grown daughter Ellie was in third grade, I was lamenting the lack of a postal holiday recognizing the birthday of a famous American woman.

My daughter looked thoughtful before suggesting brightly, “What about one of the woman presidents?”

Here we are 25 years later, with no designated federal holiday honoring the birthday anniversary of an American female. Yet we appear to be on the cusp of electing our first woman president.

Be still, my beating heart.

Obstacles exist, and not just in the form of Julian Assange, Donald Trump, email-gate, or the naive notion that we live in a post-feminist era where electing a first woman president is no big deal. The highest hurdle is plain old sexism.

In April a friend posted this on Facebook: “Guy at a Brooklyn bar, angrily, listening to Hillary: ‘You sound like my mother!'”

Hillary, in her pantsuits of many colors, reminds people of their mothers, their public school teachers and all the females in positions of authority over them when they were children. As Dorothy Dinnerstein wrote in her feminist classic The Mermaid and the Minotaur, females are the predominant force on the ground in the rearing and socialization of children and the most frequent source of thwarting the child’s early attempts at agency (“Look, Ma, I’m going to run across the street against traffic”). As a result, many adults don’t want to re-experience their earlier dependency on a powerful woman in authority. Plus, some people are just plain sexist, no psychoanalytic interpretations necessary.

I’m one of the 36 percent of the populace who trust Hillary and I want to see her elected to the highest office in the country. In a recently released collection of essays about Hillary and her presidential prospects, editor Joanne Cronrath Bamberger writes about Hillary’s 2008 run for the White House: “… she was still a transitional woman trying to navigate the gap between twentieth century stay-at-home First Ladies and the first generation of accomplished feminist women who were going to ‘have it all,’ whether voters were ready for that or not.”

Then as now, Hillary is a walking history lesson in the tremendous changes that have occurred for women since the late 1960s. She is, and always has been, whip-smart and wonky, and she is uber-accomplished. As President Obama said at the Democratic National Convention, “… there has never been a man or a woman — not me, not Bill, nobody — more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as President of the United States of America.”

Nonetheless, Hillary occasionally expresses an earlier time’s deference to these same men. At the Democratic primary debate in Miami in March, she said: “I am not a natural politician, in case you haven’t noticed, like my husband or President Obama.” When I made my first small campaign donation to Hillary, I wrote in the form’s comment section that she should quit taking a one-down position to her husband or President Obama. She is clearly a natural at politics, no apologies necessary.

That said, she isn’t flashy. As 9/11 first responder John Dolan said on the Shonda Rhimes’ film that introduced Hillary at the Democratic Convention: “There are show horses and there are workhorses, horses that you count on to deliver, and she’s a workhorse.” She studies the issues, she researches policy, and she crafts reasonable solutions to social problems, whether on working for health insurance for children, trying for universal health care for all citizens of the United States, or securing help for victims of 9/11.

My 19-year-old son, Alex, like many in his generation, was initially skeptical of Hillary, but pragmatism won out. I support Hillary, not only out of pragmatism like my son, but also out of idealism. If we are mature enough as a society to elect a woman president, it will change our country for the better. It will also bring sexists out of the woodwork, just as Barack Obama’s presidency has brought racists out of their dark hiding places. Hillary, if we are lucky enough to elect her, will grow into the office just as Barack Obama did. And we as a country will grow, too.

As Michelle Obama said in her speech before the 2012 Democratic National Convention: “… after so many struggles and triumphs and moments that have tested my husband in ways I never could have imagined, I have seen firsthand that being president doesn’t change who you are — it reveals who you are.”

Hillary will be revealed as the person she always has been: practical, hard-working, tenacious, tireless, on the right side of justice in matters of gender, race and children. She will be calm, directed, and she will have done her homework. One day our country just might give her one of those postal holidays as first woman president.

Be still, my beating heart.

We All Need Someone to Just Listen to Us Sometimes

I’m a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. I’ve lived through the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), including panic attacks and anxiety. I know all too well how important it is when psychological or physical “triggers” cause the panic attacks, to have someone to just listen to us and not judge us as the attack runs its course.

In 1992 at the age of 36, I told my wife Karla that I had been sexually abused as child – the first time I ever mentioned it to anyone. The panic attacks started soon thereafter, and we found out I suffered from PTSD.

For the next two years, I had numerous panic attacks. Since 1994, I have only had three full-blown panic attacks.

I use breathing techniques to calm myself. If I start feeling extremely anxious beyond my control, I have a great wife, great friends, my therapist and my faith that I can lean on to help me get through it. I am now able to use what I have learned over the past 25 years or so to prevent full-blown panic attacks from occurring.

At 4:30 a.m. this morning, I got a call from someone in my circle who was having a full-blown panic attack for the first time ever. When I got the call, I listened without judgment. Karla and I took turns talking to this person for the next two hours as they were waiting at an airport to catch a flight.

We didn’t give specific instructions or advice other than try to breathe deeply, relax, and know that we would wouldn’t leave them during this time of need. We kept assuring them they were not alone.

(Fortunately, Karla is a registered nurse with a focus on providing hospice care. Most of her patients suffered from anxiety, and she has incredible patience.)

So many trauma survivors suffer in silence with PTSD, panic attacks and anxiety. We are too ashamed and embarrassed to share with someone what is going on.

People who don’t suffer from these illnesses often don’t know what to say. “It’s just in your head. Stop thinking about it.” Some people will yell at us in frustration and make to feel like we are crazy.

“Crazy” is a horrible thing to call anyone who faces any type of mental health challenge. This just drives a trauma survivor deeper into a shell and causes him or her to suffer more in silence, because they aren’t comfortable with openly discussing their pain. That can drive them to destructive lifestyles to ease the pain.

I want others like me who suffer from PTSD and the resulting anxiety and panic attacks to know that we are strong, we are OK, we are not alone, and we are not “crazy.” Find the right counselor and develop an inner circle of family and/or friends that you lean on, and who will not judge you when you suffer through a crisis episode.

To our inner circle of loved ones: We know you get frustrated sometimes. We are so thankful when you listen, don’t judge us, and just hold us close if you can. Sometimes we’ll cry as a consequence of the imaginary fears and the feeling that we are emotionally weak. Thank you for allowing us to freely share what is going on at that moment. Eventually the crisis will pass, and we will be ready to face the world again.

To fellow trauma survivors: We can do incredible things despite the challenges we face from PTSD, anxiety, and panic attacks. Keep enjoying the journey of life and find your inner circle that will listen, laugh with you, cry with you, hold you, and never judge you when anxiety and panic hits.

We are strong! We do more than survive – we thrive!

Street Team Brings Health Care Directly To Homeless People In NYC

Because some homeless people are hesitant to seek out medical care in clinics or hospitals, one organization is meeting them where they are.

The Center for Urban Community Services’ (CUCS) new street medicine program brings health care directly to homeless people living on the streets of New York City, according to Tony Hannigan, the organization’s founder. The program, which launched last month, will serve about 200 homeless people per year.

Four days a week, nurses walk the city’s parks, sidewalks and bridge underpasses, and provide medical assessments, treatment and referrals to homeless individuals they meet. 

It is the first program of its kind in NYC, according to Hannigan. 

New York City has more than 60,000 homeless people living in shelters, according to the Coalition for the Homeless. And 2,794 homeless individuals are living on the streets. A large majority of people living on the streets have a mental illness or other severe health problem.

While free medical care is available to homeless residents through clinics, shelters or homeless services organizations, including facilities run by CUCS, some people are hesitant to seek out treatment for a variety of reasons.

“In some cases they haven’t had good experiences in clinics, or they’re in denial that they even have medical issues,” Hannigan said. “So a medical practitioner going out in the street can, through conversation, get them to start talking about their pain.”

A nurse practitioner and a registered nurse partner with CUCS social workers who have already been conducting street outreach for years. The social workers, who work to connect homeless individuals to housing and psychiatric care, help introduce the nurses to homeless individuals they’ve identified. 

Some of the most common health issues they come across are open wounds, high blood pressure, diabetes, or foot problems. 

“Frequently what you’re seeing with people living on the street is a 50-year-old in a 70-year-old’s body,” Hannigan said. “They’re living hard lives.”

The nurses, however, are limited to a certain degree because there’s only so much they can do outside of a medical facility. 

“Blood work, for instance, has to be kept at certain temperatures,” Hannigan said. “It’s the impracticality of delivering medical care on a park bench.”

The other common challenge is convincing patients to seek out long-term care at a hospital or clinic. 

Hannigan noted that the medical program is “strategic” because the pairing of social workers with medical professionals may be the winning combination that gets homeless people to open up about their health issues. 

“A person may not talk to a street outreach social worker, but in some cases they’ll talk to a medical professional, because they have pain or are not feeling well,” Hannigan said. “That, in turn, can be a pathway to the person trusting our outreach staff and engaging in other services, like psychiatric care, and of course, the end game, which is housing.”

The street medicine team is operating with a $ 400,000 grant from the city. 

The CUCS program has been learning from an existing, successful street health care program in Boston. Boston Health Care for the Homeless has physicians, nurses and behavioral health professionals follow homeless patients in a variety of settings to ensure they get regular, uninterrupted care.

So far CUCS has seen some success. Of the 50 people the nurses have served since July, around 10 people have agreed to seek care in a facility.

CUCS’ ultimate goal is to increase its staff and expand from mainly serving Manhattan to also catering to people in Brooklyn and Queens.
