Good News! Kim Kardashian Made Up Her Mind And She’s Voting For Hillary Clinton

Kim Kardashian has made up her mind about who she’s voting for in the upcoming presidential election. On Saturday, the 35-year-old took the time to explain the context in which she told Wonderland magazine that she was “on the fence,” about who to vote for ― implying that she was considering voting for Donald Trump. 

In a post on her website and app, Kardashian made it clear that she intend to vote for Hillary Clinton. 

“There was a point when I wasn’t 100% sure I was even going to vote in this election; I didn’t want to vote blindly,” Kardashian wrote. “But I also thought about how not voting would mean that I wasn’t making my voice heard, so I decided to talk to my closest friends and family who I love and trust, to have an open conversation about politics.”

Kardashian explained that she had a “long conversation” with her stepparent Caitlyn Jenner, who encouraged her to research the candidates and their policies before making a decision. 

“And so that’s what I did. I thought about the things that are so important to me that they outweigh everything else, such as gun control and protecting women’s rights to safe and legal abortion,” the reality star wrote, ultimately coming to the conclusion that she “without a doubt” stands with Clinton. 

 “I’m with her. I believe Hillary will best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job. This year, I’m not just voting for myself, but also for my children, and I took that into careful consideration when I made my decision.”

Kardashian did, however, appear to leave herself a little wiggle room in case Trump wins:

Now that I have made my choice I want to be clear… I would never judge anyone based on their political or religious beliefs. I believe that both candidates have the intention of making the country a safer and stronger place for every American, they just have different ideas about how we get there.

Well, that’s all cleared up. 

To read Kardashian’s entire post, head over to her website.

A Beginner’s Guide To Really Loving Yourself

“Take care of yourself”–What does this really mean?

Throughout the busiest days and most challenging moments of my life, I always took good care of myself–on the outside. I exercised regularly, got a decent amount of sleep, ate a healthy diet, never smoked, never turned to alcohol. I did not have any vices at all, and my body was healthy. But no matter how many salads I ate and how many aromatherapy massages I got, I was still stressed out, resentful, worried, and quietly angry. Only recently did I discover what it really means to “take care of yourself.” It’s been a long journey, and here are a few things I have done along the way.

1. I made a mental and verbal commitment to take care of myself. It’s so easy to forget ourselves when we are so busy worrying about others. Committing to the idea–even though I didn’t yet have a concrete plan for how to follow through–got me halfway there.

2. I got lost. I traveled not to escape my reality but to reconnect with myself and to learn to enjoy my own company.

3. I practiced meditation. If you have no idea how, just simply spend a few minutes each day sitting still with your eyes closed and focus on your breath. There is no need to overanalyze it.

4. I celebrated my accomplishments with small rewards,instead of rushing to the next big thing.

<5. I started saying no to invitations to activities that didn’t excite me,and told myself not to feel guilty about it.

Excerpted from “The Giving Way to Happiness: Stories & Science Behind the Life-Changing Power of Giving,” Tarcher Penguin Random House 2016. Check out the book for more tips on how to take care of yourself – especially when you are giving so much of yourself.

Integrator Alert: Demand Time (and Changes) in the FDA’s Move Limiting Access and Increasing Costs of Dietary Supplements

Removal of many dietary supplements from the market. Increased prices for patients and consumers. Limited access to key nutritional tools for practitioners who have used them safely for decades.

Charges like these against a proposal of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have propelled many Paul Revere rides through the alternative and integrative medicine community. One wonders with blasts against the FDA if it is “wolf” that is being cried.

2016-09-24-1474737510-3070699-FDA213X110.gif

Best assessment: not this time. I received an urgent email from long-time Integrator adviser Michael Levin of Health Business Strategies. Levin’s executive roles over the past 4 decades have included positions with pharma companies, medical device firms, as well as supplements firms. He’s a level headed analyst. He pointed to a perspective of the Council for Responsible Nutrition:

“Collectively the draft FDA Guidance can be viewed as a variety of maneuvers by the FDA to re-characterize as many dietary supplements as possible as [New Dietary Ingredients] and then propose a standard of proof for their safety that few manufacturers would be able to meet; one that Congress and the courts clearly did not intend to be applied to dietary supplements.”

Urge the FDA to add a 120 day extension to the comment period

At issue is Docket Number FDA-2011-D-0376: “Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredient Notifications and Related Issues: Guidance for Industry.” The present comment period ends October 11. Levin urges all organizations with a stake in the industry to make their voices heard.

The first step: request a 120 day extension to allow a regulation of this importance to be thoroughly vetted. A draft letter of request is affixed below.


2016-09-24-1474753206-6563239-CRNJointHeader120611400x105.jpg

CRN wasn’t acting alone. It signed a joint statement with the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA), the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA), the Natural Products Association (NPA), and the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA). The group of organizations called for “an overhaul” of the guidance. Best estimates are that compliance will cost the industry $ 2-billion to $ 6-billion a year. These costs that will be passed through to patients and consumers.

Levin is realistic about the challenges the guidance poses for anyone not intimately involved with manufacturing and sourcing processes. He warns that “this highly technical regulatory guidance document is very complex.” One example: if the guidance were adopted, a manufacturing change will trigger new dietary ingredient (NDI) status which, due to routine manufacturing processes, “essentially will put most botanical extracts into NDI territory.” If so, this would add substantially to regulatory burden, and cost.

For these reasons Levin, pictured below, “encourage(s) all practitioner-stakeholders to request a 120 day extension on the comment period (now due on 10/11/16) to allow a careful review.” In his view, “medical doctors, pharmacists, naturopathic doctors and other healthcare practitioners should review this guidance and consider how it may impact their ability to prescribe safe nutritional interventions to help their patients.”

2016-09-24-1474754646-3300244-levinmichael2015.jpg

Levin urges all who are affiliated with professional organizations or institutions linked in any way to supplement use to respond – and also send copies of their letters to US Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Maria Cantwell (D-WA)

If guaranteeing safety is the FDA’s primary concern, attacking the dietary supplement manufacturing is roughly like the IRS seeking to balance the budget by auditing people who make under $ 50,000 a year. With a significant percent of the estimated 251,000 medical deaths a year linked to pharmaceutical use, maybe a better use of the FDA’s team on this project would be to set them to mining in a deeper vein of public harm than to making more expensive the agents people are using instead of pharmaceuticals.

Bottom line: Levin’s call for an extension makes sense. No need for the FDA to rush on this one. Get your request for an extension and comments in!

Sample Letter Requesting a 120 Day Extension

Docket Number FDA-2011-D-0376 – Request for 120 Day Extension for Comment Period (“Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredient Notifications and Related Issues: Guidance for Industry”)

The revised draft guidance for New Dietary Ingredients (NDIs)

Date:

Division of Dockets Management (HFA-305)
Food and Drug Administration
5630 Fishers Lane, Room 1061
Rockville, MD 20852

(Electronic Submission via www.regulations.gov)

Re: Docket Number FDA-2011-D-0376 – Request for 120 Day Extension for Comment Period (“Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredient Notifications and Related Issues: Guidance for Industry”)

This is to respectfully request a 120 Day extension for comment period on this draft guidance.

As written, the guidance raises very serious questions about the future availability of safe dietary supplements recommended by healthcare practitioners to help patients maintain and improve their health.

Physicians, doctors and pharmacists use nutrient repletion and targeted nutritional interventions to improve the health status of the patients we serve. In so doing, our patients can live healthier lives. Evidence also exists that these nutritional interventions may reduce healthcare costs, safely.

Since this guidance is highly technical and appears to have a high likelihood of impacting the practice of nutritional medicine, we simply need more time to study, understand and consider how this guidance might impact our ability to help the patients we serve. The issues of manufacturing changes, ODIs vs NDIs, the position on synthetic botanicals, the cost of redundancy of NDINs and how that might impact innovation, product availability, consumer prices and ingredient availability are some of the issues that need careful exploration. Products on formularies will need to be reviewed to determine how this guidance, if adopted, would impact their availability.

Please extend the comment period by (at least) 120 days (to February 11, 2017) so that we may evaluate the impact this important guidance may have on public health and safety, in general, and the patients we serve, in particular.

Thank you.

Sincerely

Meet The New Face Of Bernie Sanders’ Revolution

When Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) bid farewell to his presidential aspirations at the Democratic National Convention in the summer, he instructed his lefty legions to press on. He would not be occupying the White House, but the change his supporters believed in could still be achieved through persistent pressure on the Democratic Party.

“Our revolution continues,” Sanders declared. “This election is not about, and has never been about, Hillary Clinton, or Donald Trump, or Bernie Sanders or any of the other candidates who sought the presidency … This election is about, and must be about, the needs of the American people.”

Sanders was rejecting the idea that his campaign’s popularity had been due to the unique charismatic power of a 74-year-old Vermonter to entrance the millennial hordes. Instead, Sanders had given voice to a grassroots movement both unsatisfied with the political status quo and resistant to the thuggish white nationalism of Trump, he argued.

The biggest test for the future political viability of the Sanders revolution is playing out in upstate New York, where populist insurgent Zephyr Teachout is taking on former state senator John Faso.  The lobbyist is backed by two billionaire Republican megadonors: Paul Singer and Robert Mercer, who have each plowed more than half a million dollars into a Faso Super PAC. Teachout and Faso are vying for the state’s 19th Congressional district, a significantly rural and working-class stretch of counties between Manhattan and Albany.

Teachout has everything Democratic leaders could ask for in a candidate ― personal charisma, policy acumen and an assload of money. She’s raised over $ 1.6 million for her campaign this year. Her average donation amount in the second quarter of 2016 was about $ 15 ― well below Bernie’s famed $ 27 figure.

As ‘Bernie!’ chants broke into his speech, Sanders countered playfully: ‘That ‘Bernie!’ has now gotta be transferred to Zephyr!’

She’s running in a district that both parties are capable of winning. President Barack Obama carried it twice, but retiring Rep. Chris Gibson (R-N.Y.) has occupied its Congressional seat since the Tea Party wave of 2010.

Teachout is running as a hardline wonk-populist. Her economic platform bashes the North American Free Trade Agreement, calls to bust up cable monopolies and force big banks to lend to small businesses. She invokes former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s rural electrification project as the precedent for her plan to expand broadband internet access. Teachout’s book, Corruption In America: From Benjamin Franklin’s Snuff Box To Citizens United, is a serious scholarly take-down of the American campaign finance system. She uses the word “antitrust.”

Her PR effort has been pugnacious. One ad calling to clean up the Hudson River ties Faso to Wall Street financiers and Albany sell-outs. Instead of challenging Faso to a debate, she called on his hedge fund Super PAC donor Singer (she suggested topics including NAFTA, fracking and the effect of climate-change on flooding). Last week, Teachout deployed the biggest weapon in her arsenal, hosting Sanders at a rally in her district.

“There are 435 members in the House of Representatives,” Sanders declared to an enthusiastic crowd. “You are about to elect the most outstanding member. A leader in a time where we need leaders … This race is one of the most important congressional races in America.”

As “Bernie!” chants broke into his speech, Sanders countered playfully: “That ‘Bernie!’ has now gotta be transferred to Zephyr!’”

Teachout held her own as the headlining act, zinging Faso as a lobbyist for payday lenders and fracking pipelines, and touting her debate challenge to Singer. “If you wanna buy a Congressional seat, we wanna know why,” she said. “So far, he hasn’t answered.”

This stuff is all gravy to the American left that hailed Sanders in his primary challenge to Clinton. But Sanders lost, and both he and Teachout recognize there is a lot on the line for the American progressive movement in her race. The electorate is obviously hungry for outsider candidates in 2016, but successful campaigns always involve some cult of personality element ― and it is hard to focus the energy of a nationwide presidential race on individual districts. Teachout trounced her opponents in the Democratic primary, but other Sanders-backed efforts haven’t faired as well. Tim Canova was unable to dethrone former Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), despite the disastrous headlines she cultivated while running the Democratic National Committee. Sanders proved that a small-dollar-donation fundraising strategy can be competitive at the national level, but can it work in a Congressional district, where the price tag for billionaires is much lower?

Progressives have argued for decades that they can win districts like New York’s 19th by appealing to populist economics and attacking political corruption. That thinking violates the traditional Beltway ideological calculus, where a candidate who supports same-sex marriage and abortion rights can make herself more moderate by supporting federal favors to major corporations. Democrats in swing districts have typically taken this approach. Raise money by going easy on big corporations, and keep Democrats on board with social issues.

It does keep the billionaires off your back. But progressive activists have long noted that it doesn’t work with voters. Democratic candidates in rural districts do indeed take a hit with social conservatives for toeing the party line on abortion and gay rights. But it’s hard to see how they can absolve these perceived sins by binding themselves to big banks and oil companies.

Teachout’s campaign is serving as a real-world test of the progressive counter-strategy. Polling data in the district is thin, but a recent survey conducted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee gave Teachout a 5-point lead among likely voters, with 11 percent undecided. The race will depend on whether Teachout’s lead can hold up during the barrage of Super PAC ads that will hit district in the final weeks of the campaign.

But the benefits for progressives from a Teachout win would be tremendous. Teachout said she wants to serve on the House Agriculture Committee if elected, to help serve local farmers. Through a quirk of history, the Ag Committee also shares jurisdiction over Wall Street trading in derivatives, which would give her a platform to assail the financial establishment ― something Singer and Mercer are no doubt aware of. The similarities between Teachout and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) aren’t exactly hard to identify ― both are economic populists, law professors and women with a knack for breaking down complex issues into voter-friendly arguments. Warren changed Congress with her election in 2012. Sanders thinks Teachout could do the same in 2016.

“You need a leader who will stand up to the billionaire class and tell them they cannot have it all,” Sanders said. The first step is winning.

Friendship And Our Vagus Nerve

2016-09-23-1474640212-7701182-friends2.JPG
We don’t often think that the nature of our friendships has a profound or major impact on our health and well-being. But a recent New York Times, article by journalist Kate Murphy cites recent research to support that loneliness is detrimental to our health. As we know, the antidote to loneliness lies in the bonds of friendship.

Research links friendship with the tenth cranial nerve, the longest one, known as the ‘vagus’ (“wandering” in Latin) for its meandering course through the body–from the brain, through the chest and abdomen. This nerve is largely responsible for our behavior to fight or take flight or freeze in response to stress, which in turn, affects the rate of respirations and heart beats per minute and the amount of gastric juice secreted by the stomach.

Research shows that the tone of the vagus nerve has been connected to longevity. If we don’t relax, the tenth nerve loses its tone. Authentic friendship keeps the wanderer in shape, while loneliness has been equated with effects as detrimental to our health as obesity or an addiction to alcohol or cigarettes. Therefore, working on obstacles to friendship may be as important as exercising in the gym.

In this day of Facebook a person puts forth a public image. Real friends accept us beneath the image, for our genuine self. But friendship isn’t always easy, especially if we’re not good enough friends to ourselves. If we’ve grown up in an abusive environment of any kind, physical or psychological, we may find people who, in some way, replicate this maltreatment. We have to learn to view and accept ourselves as well as our friends for foibles and vulnerabilities.

Friendship is a two-way street. A solid relationship creates a safe space for both people. Friends are open to learning about each other, but also open to learning about themselves. They’re able to accept criticism offered in a constructive and caring way and be open to changing their behaviors.

We may assume that friendship flows like water, but like boulders in a natural spring, friendship can hit tough spots. These require effort to navigate. Sometimes a therapist’s tools come in handy.

A favorite therapeutic tool is the “holding environment.” In this situation, a therapist listens with acceptance, sympathy and empathy. Other times confrontation (in a caring way) is indicated to communicate that a person’s words or actions impact negatively on another. For example, many years ago my brother Bob pulled me aside at a family gathering and said, “Do you realize you always go for a person’s Achilles heel?” Because I knew he cared, I was able to hear his criticism and to change my behavior.

Conclusion: Friendship is linked to the vagus nerve, which innervates many organs, and is vital to our health and sense of well-being.

Fixing Our Food System Shouldn’t Be A Partisan Issue

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Huffington Post recently spoke with Linnekin.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wife to Charlotte Police: ‘Don’t Shoot Him. He Has No Weapon.’

Two more black men have been shot and killed by police: in Charlotte, North Carolina (Keith Lamont Scott) and in Tulsa, Oklahoma (Terence Crutcher).

WARNING: THESE VIDEOS ARE GRAPHIC AND THE AUDIO UNSETTLING AND EXPLICIT.

This is a tale of two cities.

In one city, there is police accountability and no rioting. In the other city, there is no police accountability. For days, there are riots and protests by the public.

Here is the wife’s cell phone video of the Charlotte shooting. The audio is heartbreaking, as she alternately pleads with the police and with her husband:

 

 

Here is the Police video of the Charlotte shooting:

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is nothing wrong with your phone or computer. The video was not released. Charlotte’s police chief said Thursday the agency will not publicly release video footage of Keith Lamont Scott’s death.

 

Here is a video of the rioting in Charlotte.

 

 

That is the tale of one city, Charlotte.

Here is the tale of the other city.

Here is the Police Video of the Tulsa, Oklahoma shooting of Terrence Crutcher (19:43:52)

 

Here is news of the indictment of the officer involved in the Tulsa shooting for manslaughter.

Here is a video of the rioting in Tulsa:

 

 
There is no video because there was no rioting.

Two cities, two shootings. Different governmental reactions, different responses by the people. See the connection?

When there is a responsive police force and the citizens feel their concerns are being heard, they are largely willing to let the system work.

Here are two questions that hopefully will be answered in short order:

In Tulsa, how did the PCP get to the scene, where it was discovered by the police? Did the victim have it? That’s what the police imply.

In Charlotte, how did the weapon get to the scene where it was discovered by the police? Did the victim have it? That’s what the police imply.

Its pretty important for the official narrative to show the public that the victims somehow “deserved to be shot.” That’s why there was so much discussion about the convenience store crime in Ferguson which led to the shooting of Michael Brown.  His death was somehow justified in the eyes of some if he was a bully in a stop and shop, the theory goes.

We don’t know the answer to the two questions, but…

There are two terms of police lingo that everyone should learn. “Throwaways” and “Flaking”

“Throwaways”: are untraceable small caliber weapons (guns) allegedly carried by some police officers, often in a leg holster, that can be clandestinely dropped where the police need to find a weapon.

“Flaking”: this is the secretive dropping of untraceable drugs, allegedly by police officers, where the police need to find drugs.

Nobody really knows whether the gun and PCP were genuinely at the scene of each respective shooting, but hopefully a complete investigation will uncover the truth.

This writer has the utmost respect and appreciation for law enforcement officers and the work they do. It is selfless, thankless and dangerous work, and the criminals they face do not subscribe to such niceties as following the law.

But we’ve reached a tipping point in America, where people across the political spectrum have seen years of these shootings and are fed up.

Here are some similar encounters of the recent past.

ALTON STERLING (Baton Rouge Man Selling CDs)

PHILANDO CASTILE (Minnesota Man Pulled Over for Busted Tail light, shot while moving arm)

TAMIR RICE (Cleveland 12-year-old with a toy gun) The squad car appears at 0.17.

ERIC GARNER (New Yorker selling “loose cigarettes”) “I can’t breathe” chokehold video.

SANDRA BLAND (Traffic stop, Waller County, Texas)

MICHAEL BROWN (Ferguson, Missouri). No video is available, but this is a story of the aftermath.

Vital Lessons Learned From The Chelsea Bombing From A Chelsea Psychologist

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

4) Crowdsourcing is a weapon against terror.

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

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

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

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

‘Love Hormone’ Oxytocin May Enhance Feelings Of Spirituality

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But it has a dark side, too.

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

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

Buying into the Regime: Grapes and Consumption in Cold War Chile and the United States (American Encounters/Global Interactions)

Buying into the Regime is a transnational history of how Chilean grapes created new forms of consumption and labor politics in both the United States and Chile. After seizing power in 1973, Augusto Pinochet embraced neoliberalism, transforming Chile’s economy. The country became the world’s leading grape exporter. Heidi Tinsman traces the rise of Chile’s fruit industry, examining how income from grape production enabled fruit workers, many of whom were women, to buy the commodities—appliance

Geniuses Made A Must-Watch ‘Formation’ Parody About Anti-Abortion Laws

A remake of Beyoncé’s “Formation” is telling ladies to “get information” about anti-abortion laws. 

Created by feminist organization Lady Parts Justice League, “InFormation” is a badass feminist anthem that’s reminding everyone how damaging the Hyde Amendment and other anti-abortion laws are for women. The Hyde Amendment prohibits federal programs like Medicaid from covering abortion care for mostly poor and uninsured women.

The video, which is part of a pro-abortion rights campaign titled #BeBoldEndHyde, calls for health insurance that covers abortion care and it’s smart, clever and more important than ever. 

“Ok ladies now let’s get in-formation, cause I say // We gotta get informed about this whack legislation, like today // Your rights, they might get eliminated,” the song lyrics read. 

The “InFormation” lyrics were co-written by Jean Grae, while the video was produced by Joyelle Nicole and choreographed by Denae Famada.

Below are a few of our other favorite lines from “InFormation”: 

“These laws disproportionately affect poor women and women of color,” according to an on-screen message by Lady Parts Justice in the “InFormation” video. 

“Women ― especially [women of color] ― are not strangers to having our bodies and our physical and mental health be subject to laws that rob us of choices,” Grae told Colorlines on Thursday. “Choices, options, information [are] all things that we should know exist and that we have the right to have access to… While they are the most basic and human statements to make, they are not just being not honored, but taken from us ― both systematically and with what one can describe as a great disdain for our human rights.” 

Anti-abortion politicians and groups are limiting women’s health access in all 50 states by creating laws that make it harder and harder for abortion doctors to practice. Anti-abortion laws also make abortion more expensive and harder for women to obtain. Often referred to as TRAP laws (Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers), these restrictions are shutting down clinics left and right across the country.

Although the Hyde Amendment is not a permanent law, Republicans repeatedly attach it to other bills

Using the hashtag #BeBoldEndHyde, Twitter users made some great points about why the Hyde Amendment needs to be repealed: 

OK ladies, now let’s get in formation… and fight anti-abortion laws.

My Stepmom Died And That’s Not Okay

I’ve been having some health problems.

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

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

“You said your mother-in-law died?”

“No, my stepmom.”

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

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

I blame Cinderella. Thanks, Disney.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It has been seven months.

And I think I have finally started to grieve.

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

5 Careers That Can Majorly Wreck Your Health

Americans are known for our tendency to work until burnout. And a recent survey from NPR adds to a growing pile of research that some jobs can really, really hurt your health.

For their survey, NPR collaborated with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health to ask about 1,600 Americans how they feel their jobs affect factors like their eating and sleep habits, stress levels and social lives. Overall, 16 percent of workers said they think their jobs have a bad impact on their health as a whole. But in some industries, that number was significantly higher.

These 5 industries included the highest percentage of respondents who said work has a negative impact on their health:

  1. Retail outlets, 26 percent
  2. Construction or outdoor work, 23 percent
  3. Factory or manufacturing, 21 percent
  4. Medical, 19 percent
  5. Store, 16 percent

The NPR survey gave both “store” and “retail outlet” as options for respondents, so there may be a bit of a discrepancy here. In any case, working on a retail floor of any kind seems to bring up fears about negative health effects.

Among survey respondents, the biggest concerns about workplace health were chemicals and contaminants, unhealthy air and accidents or injuries. A very telling 24 percent of office workers cited long sitting hours as a concern, echoing recent research that shows sedentary jobs can contribute to all sorts of health problems.

What’s the fix?

Of course, there are many ways to ease the tension between your job and your health. But one of the most obvious self-care tricks, taking a vacation day, goes widely underused, according to the report.

Some workers are given vacation days but neglect to use them. Among workers whose companies give them paid vacation days, only 49 percent said they used most or all of their available days last year, according to the survey.

However, vacation isn’t a given in many of the industries mentioned above. Forty-seven percent of workers in low-paying jobs ― that’s almost half! ― don’t get paid vacation days from their employer, the report says. Forty percent of these same low-paying jobs don’t offer health insurance, either.

That’s a huge shame when you consider the positive effects of vacation on stress levels, creativity and productivity.

Here’s to healthier workplaces in the future ― and more time away from them, too.

Turkey’s First Lady Asks Americans To Imagine Brooklyn Bridge Seized By Terrorists

NEW YORK ― Americans need to imagine their own country under assault to fully appreciate how a July 15 coup attempt has traumatized their treaty ally Turkey, Turkish first lady Emine Erdogan said Thursday, labeling the Western response to the incident “a huge disappointment.” 

 

“Some countries we call friends were even hesitant to condemn the coup attempt,” Erdogan, through a translator, told an audience here. “They made half-hearted statements as if waiting to see who would win, and some went as far as to say the coup was a fiction. Just try to imagine the feelings those shocking remarks can have on a nation that has just faced death. … If Brooklyn Bridge was taken over by terrorists or Capitol Hill was shelled, this [would be like what] happened in our country.”

Tanks appeared on the Bosphorus Bridge in Istanbul during the attempted overthrow, and coup-plotters bombed Turkey’s Grand National Assembly using American-made fighter jets. More than 250 civilians were killed and at least 2,000 were injured.

Erdogan’s speech, delivered to a Harvard Club audience that included Turkish business leaders and influential Americans like media figure Tina Brown, was a fresh sign that the government of her husband, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is emboldened by goodwill it’s gained at home and abroad after resisting the coup. The Erdogan government seems increasingly willing to stand up to the U.S., which many Turks criticized for taking hours to condemn the plot and some even accused of supporting it.

At times like the crisis, “friends’ actions speak louder than enemies’,” the first lady said.

Her speech also underscored how views of Turkish politics by outsider observers and pro-government Turks have become sharply polarized.

In the West, news coverage has focused on Erdogan’s purge of suspected coup supporters in the military and government, as well his effort to repatriate an exiled Turkish cleric, Pennsylvania resident Fethullah Gulen, whose followers Erdogan blames for the plot.

Analysts warn that Erdogan’s campaign against the Gulenists could fundamentally reshape how Turkey functions, with competent professionals suddenly leaving mid-level government jobs and losing their household incomes for flimsy reasons like appearing on the subscriber list of a pro-Gulen newspaper.  

Other international news stories about Turkey mostly relate to its role in Syria, where it supports groups fighting opposed to dictator Bashar Assad and the self-styled Islamic State, and has had tensions with U.S.-aligned Kurdish militias fighting ISIS.

The narrative from the Turkish state elevates other concerns. Speeches from Erdogan, her husband’s minister for family and social policies, and prominent Turks at Thursday’s event echoed messages about celebrating the resistance to the coup and educating the world about the dangers of Gulen.

“We are still in pain,” the first lady said. “The failed coup of July 15 is a turning point in the history of our country. A nation that 15 years ago couldn’t prevent the removal of an elected prime minister has now faced down tanks for democracy.”

Family minister Fatma Betül Sayan Kaya, the only woman in Erdogan’s cabinet, said the world failed to appreciate “that Turks are democratic to the bone.”

Both women frequently called coup-plotters “traitors,” and Erdogan repeated her husband’s message to the United Nations General Assembly that the Gulen movement should be seen as a major threat to all nations.

This is a striking claim that few outside Turkey give any credence to. But it’s one to which the Erdogan government and its supporters appear deeply committed. Attendees at the lunch received a 22-page booklet describing Gulen’s history and alleged crimes. “In order to defeat this new type of terrorism, international solidarity is highly crucial,” the document concludes.

By encouraging this view and presenting themselves as guardians of the Turkish state, the Erdogans seem to be winning new support, a big feat for a political force that has won less than half the votes in Turkey’s elections. Only a few of the attendees at Thursday’s event seemed to share the political Islamist ideology of the Erdogans’ AK Party. 

Instead, many simply spoke of supporting their nation and its leader at a time of crisis ― a helpful line of thinking for Erdogan that neatly ignores controversies about his approach to human rights, his country’s Kurdish minority and his sometimes outlandish statements.

Speaking after the first lady, CNN Turk reporter Hande Firat said she spent the night of the coup worried for her country and her child’s future. Fellow journalists had warned her to be more neutral, she said, and suggested she was too warm toward Erdogan, who’s been notoriously unsupportive of press freedom, during a FaceTime interview of him the night of the coup.

“If it happened today, I would do it again,” Farat told the audience.

6 Expert-Approved Tips For Dating With Anxiety

When you suffer from an anxiety disorder, getting through a date can seem near impossible. 

It may help to know you’re not alone. An estimated 18 percent of all American adults suffer from an anxiety disorder of some kind, ranging from social anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder and general anxiety. There’s a good chance you’ve gone on a date with someone who’s had a panic attack over the thought of dinner and a movie. 

There are ways to cope with anxiety, though, and meet someone worthwhile. Below, experts on anxiety share their best advice for managing your worries and stress so you can successfully get through a date. 

One technique that is well-known in anxiety treatment is the idea of exposure: The more you deal with things that stress you out, the better equipped you are to handle them. If dating feels particularly nerve-racking, start slow by putting yourself in situations where you can practice small talk, said Keith Humphreys, a professor of psychiatry at Stanford University. 

“Go to any social event ― a dance, a church picnic or a hangout after work ― and set a goal of talking to a stranger who seems interesting for at least 10 minutes, without the pressure to ask anyone out,” he told The Huffington Post. “Taking the scary thing ― a real date ― off the table will give you security to practice your dating and conversational skills until you get more comfortable.”

Pay attention to the stories you’re telling yourself in anticipation of the date, said Jennifer Rollin, a psychotherapist in North Potomac, Maryland. Just because you think you’ll spend the whole night stuttering out of nervousness and mispronouncing menu items doesn’t mean that’s necessarily going to happen. 

“When you view your thoughts as ‘just stories,’ you can distance yourself from the ones that are unhelpful,” she said. “Let’s say that you are thinking ‘I’m going to come across as insecure’ or ‘If people knew about my anxiety, no one would want to date me.’ Rather then judging yourself for having these thoughts, simply notice them and then determine whether that train of thought is helpful or unhelpful.”

When a thought is unproductive, filter it out and try to replace it with something more optimistic, Rollin recommended. 

“For example, you might tell yourself, ‘No matter how this date goes, I am proud of myself for facing my anxiety and putting myself out there.’” 

Try to see a healthy dose of stress as your friend when you’re dating, said Kimber Shelton, a psychologist based in Duncanville, Texas. A bit of nervous energy can give you the focus and motivation to get through the date. The key is to keep the date short so you don’t feel trapped.

“When stress is first activated we think, ‘I feel nervous, but I can do this!’ ― but that thought can be be temporary and short-lived,” she explained. 

To that end, Shelton recommends scheduling dates of a reasonable length and meeting up in a familiar place ― your favorite coffee shop, for instance, or a nearby restaurant where you’re well versed in the menu. 

“You want to just slightly push yourself out of your comfort zone,” she said. 

Everyone dreads awkward silence on dates but when you have anxiety, you may feel a heightened need to “be on” around new people. You often feel tongue-tied, making even even basic conversation difficult.

To combat this kind of performance anxiety, Manhattan psychologist Chloe Carmichael recommends storing up a few conversation starters beforehand.

“Read some news stories before your date and choose a handful of topics that might come in handy ― something about the arts, the weather, sports, local news and world events,” she said. “Besides filling up the awkward silences, this will connect you to your date because current events are relevant to pretty much everyone.”

In anticipation of a date, it’s easy to get caught up in how the other person might perceive you. But instead of worrying about where you stand, psychologist Stacey Rosenfeld suggests flipping the script: How will they stack up in your estimation? 

“Shift your focus to whether or not this is a suitable person for you to date, said Rosenfeld, who’s based in Coral Gables, Florida. “Focus on what you have in common, their chemistry with you and whether or not you’d like to see this person again.”

She added: “This can take a lot of the pressure off the meeting because you realize you have an active role in this process, rather than passively waiting to be accepted or not. This strategy works great for job interviews, too!”

When the date is over, put it to bed. You may feel tempted to mentally replay the awkward moments or lulls in conversations but resist that urge, said Shannon Kolakowski, a psychologist and author of Single, Shy, and Looking for Love: A Dating Guide for the Shy and Socially Anxious.

“Rather than beat yourself up or focus on awkward moments, go through the date recalling fun moments and good conversation,” she said. “Did you both find yourself laughing or did your date compliment you, or vice versa?

If the date truly lacked any moments of connection, remind yourself it wasn’t your fault, Kolakowski said: “Sometimes people just don’t click, and that’s OK.”

This Teen Is Almost 8 Feet Tall — And Still Growing

At 7 feet 8 inches, Broc Brown definitely sticks out in a crowd, and he’s only going to get bigger.

Brown’s family knew something was up at a young age: He was 5-foot-2 in kindergarten, according to his mother, Darci Elliot.

“When he got into middle school he was around 6 feet tall, and by high school he was 7 feet tall,” Elliot told Barcroft TV. “It’s a genetic disorder and there’s nothing that can stop him from growing – I don’t know if he will ever stop.”

Brown, 19, grows an astounding six inches a year because of a rare genetic disorder called Sotos syndrome, or cerebral gigantism. The condition reportedly affects 1 in 14,000 newborns, but the National Institutes of Health says the number may be closer to 1 in 5,000, since not everyone who has it is properly diagnosed.

Kids with the syndrome tend to grow quickly in younger years and have unusually large heads, but their adult height is often in the normal range. That makes Brown a rarity among rarities.

Other symptoms include attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and an explosive temper.

Brown has both, his mother said.

“When he gets mad, he’s mad. It wouldn’t take him two seconds to pop a hole in the wall ― it could be very dangerous if he wasn’t on medication and able to be calmed,” Elliot told Barcroft TV. “But overall, he is a big softie, his heart is as big as his body.”

Brown is in constant pain because of other issues, including curvature of the spine and narrowing of the spinal cord. He was born with only one kidney, which means he can’t take painkillers.

“It kind of feels like a big tennis racket has gone through my back,” he told Barcroft.

Dr. John Pappas, director of NYU Clinical Genetic Services and associate professor of pediatrics at NYU Langone Medical Center, said there is no cure for Sotos syndrome and treatments address only the symptoms, not the cause.

“We don’t have a specific kind of medication that can control the overgrowth of protein,” Pappas told HuffPost.

Pappas, who hasn’t treated Brown, said factors beyond Sotos syndrome may be causing Brown’s non-stop growth.

The teen’s trajectory has been financially challenging for his family.

“There’s a lot of things that are hard, like finding shoes for him, finding clothes,” Elliot told local station WILX-TV in 2013. Nike helped by donating a pair of size 24 shoes.

Brown’s size has helped him reach a certain height of fame.

Previously, he held the Guinness World Record for tallest male under the age of 18. He outgrew that honor when he reached legal age. Kevin Bradford of Doral, Florida, who stands 7-feet-1, now holds that honor.

But if Brown continues to grow, he could soon be looking down at 8-foot-3 Sultan Kösen, the current owner of the tallest living person honor. Kösen stopped growing in 2012 at the tender age of 29.

Brown doesn’t seem concerned about being the world’s tallest man. He’d be happy with a normal, comfortable existence.

“I hopefully want to work for a sporting goods store or something like that, a cashier or something,” he said. “I just want to have my own job.”

HUFFPOST HILL – Hillary’s Body Double Shines On ‘Between Two Ferns’

A Trump staffer resigned over historically insensitive comments about African-Americans, further convincing us Trump will simply name “the good ol’ days” as his transition chairman. Paul Ryan reminded us that being “not familiar enough with an issue” is like the brain version of “looking forward to spending more time with one’s family.” And Michelle Obama’s passport was leaked by hackers, though they thankfully didn’t find the cache of Bo Obama’s entry visas into North Korea. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Thursday, September 22nd, 2016:

BOOK EXCERPT: ‘NEW WORDS FOR UNDERSTANDING WASHINGTON’ – The good folks at the Washington Post will be publishing an excerpt of Eliot’s book, The Beltway Bible: A Totally Serious A-Z Guide To Our No-Good, Corrupt, Incompetent, Terrible, Depressing, and Sometimes Hilarious Government, in Sunday’s Outlook section, but in the meantime, you can check it out online. As always, you can (and should!) pre-order the book, which is coming out this Tuesday (!). Here’s an excerpt of … er … the excerpt:

MADAME TUSSAUDS DISORDER

Madame Tussauds Disorder, or MTD, is a condition in which politicians, pundits or journalists don’t remove their makeup after a TV “hit,” giving them the waxy, polyurethanic appearance of a Madame Tussauds statue. Symptoms include, but are not limited to, a lofty sense of self-worth, a near-constant need to know if anyone picked up their “hit” and the appearance of a walking, breathing cadaver.

EXPERT

In Washington, everyone.

“HEADS UP”

Political version of yelling “fore!” after a wayward tee-off, screaming “timber!” while felling a tree or, perhaps most analogously, shouting “I’m going to stab you really hard!” before plunging a knife into someone’s abdomen.

Because political work is inherently adversarial, the standard practice among reporters, staffers, advocates, lobbyists and other political actors is to give a “heads up” before going ahead with a potentially unwelcome plan, thereby giving their counterparty the courtesy of some time to prepare. It allows the speaker to perpetrate some vicious act against his or her target while still maintaining a professional relationship, thanks to the observance of proper decorum.

“Heads up, I’m working on an article about your boss that says he’s been carrying on a three-year affair with a horse.”

“You’re putting us in a real bind here.”

“Just a warning.”

“Appreciate it.”

――VERY ENTERTAINING EXCERPT ENDS――

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN MORE LIKELY THAN IT WAS BEFORE – Current shutdown status is code yellow (menacing statements in press), though it may be bumped up to orange (informing the Architect of the Capitol to get the cots ready). Matt Fuller and Michael McAuliff:   “The prospects of a government shutdown suddenly loomed larger Thursday as Republicans in the Senate offered a funding bill that Democrats summarily rejected. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) offered the measure in a way that cannot be amended, and Democrats objected, saying the bill was written without their input, includes poison pill riders and fails to do anything to help long-suffering residents of Flint, Michigan. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters Thursday morning that the Republican offer is so bad that she doesn’t think Senate Democrats should offer a counter-proposal. The top Democratic appropriator in the Senate, Sen. Barbara Mikulski (Md.), agreed. ‘The majority leader has filed a Republican-only bill,’ Mikulski said. ‘We Democrats cannot vote for that.’” [HuffPost]

It appears that big game hunter Donald Trump Jr. likes posting rather aggressive things on a hunting message board.

STATE OF EMERGENCY DECLARED IN CHARLOTTE AS PROTESTS CONTINUE – National dialogue on race to start at any moment now… Greg Lacour and Andy Sullivan: “Residents of Charlotte, North Carolina, woke up to a state of emergency and the National Guard and State Highway Patrol deployed to their city on Thursday after a second night of unrest sparked by the fatal police shooting of a black man. According to police, Keith Scott, 43, was shot and killed by officers on Tuesday after he refused to drop a handgun. His family and a witness to the shooting said Scott was holding a book, not a firearm. A peaceful rally in response to the shooting turned violent on Wednesday as protesters threw rocks and bottles at police in riot gear, smashed windows and doors and looted stores in downtown Charlotte. Officers fired rubber bullets, tear gas, flash-bang grenades and used pepper spray to disperse the crowd.” [Reuters]

THE TRUMP/PENCE CAMPAIGN HAS LOTS OF BLACK FRIENDS! – And this particularly staffer will now have more time to cultivate more of them. Sam Stein and Sam Levine: “The chair of Donald Trump’s campaign in an Ohio county resigned on Thursday after claiming that racism against African-Americans didn’t exist before President Barack Obama. ‘My personal comments were inappropriate, and I apologize,’ Mahoning County chair Kathy Miller said in a statement. ‘I am not a spokesperson for the campaign and was not speaking on its behalf. I have resigned as the volunteer campaign chair in Mahoning County and as an elector to the Electoral College to avoid any unnecessary distractions.’ Miller’s resignation came hours after The Guardian published an interview in which she blamed low voter turnout among African-Americans on the way ‘they’re raised’ and stressed that blacks have only themselves to blame if they haven’t been successful ‘in the last 50 years.’” [HuffPost]

SO MUCH FOR OUR HOPES OF A BIGLY MAC – It’s amazing that Trump isn’t drawing more support from an industry that gave us Super Sizes and bucket-based meals. Dave Jamieson and Paul Blumenthal: “Donald Trump loves to eat fast food, and he isn’t embarrassed to say so. A Filet-O-Fish. A Big Mac. A Quarter Pounder. A bucket of fried chicken from KFC. ‘It’s good stuff,’ the Republican nominee once confessed. ‘I think the food’s good and I eat it very carefully.’ Unfortunately for Trump, his love for fast food appears to be unrequited. So far, the fast-food industry hasn’t put big money behind the real estate mogul’s candidacy, even though such companies traditionally support business-friendly Republicans over Democrats. It seems no matter how many McDonald’s runs New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) makes on Trump’s behalf, the candidate can’t lock down the fast-food contingent, according to campaign filings.” [HuffPost]

CLINTON FUNDRAISING EATING INTO CAMPAIGN SCHEDULE – Criticize all you want, but have you seen the inside of Marc Lasry’s apartment? Hot damn. Would you rather be at some VFW hall in North Carolina? Pffffft. Jonathan Martin: “Even as newly released financial disclosures reveal that Mrs. Clinton enjoys a substantial fund-raising advantage over Donald J. Trump, she is struggling to replicate the sort of small-dollar juggernaut that Mr. Obama enjoyed in his campaigns and Senator Bernie Sanders relied on in this year’s Democratic primaries. In an illustration of the lack of enthusiasm for her among some liberal activists, just 24 percent of the contributors to Mrs. Clinton’s campaign so far have given $ 200 or less. In 2012, 43 percent of the money to Mr. Obama was from contributors who gave $ 200 or less, and this year 58 percent of the giving to Mr. Sanders’s grass-roots bid came from small-dollar donors. Without this online network, Mrs. Clinton is being made to continue with an aggressive calendar of fund-raisers with rich donors as Election Day grows near — events that can limit her time in swing states and reinforce concerns that give rank-and-file Democrats pause.” [NYT]

LOOK, PAUL RYAN JUST WORKS HERE, MAN  – But just a really swell, gee-wilickers guy who just wants to get the best gosh darn waiver into that financial services bill. Jennifer Bendery: “House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Thursday said he has no opinions on stop-and-frisk policing, and declined to say whether he supports Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s call for more racial profiling. ‘I haven’t given enough thought to it,’ Ryan said at his weekly press conference. We need to do more to stop homegrown jihadists.’ Trump raised eyebrows Wednesday when he said police should step up their use of stop and frisk ― that is, stopping and questioning people who seem suspicious, and frisking them for potential weapons or drugs ― to combat crime in black communities. Stop and frisk was ruled unconstitutional in 2013, when a federal judge found that New York City’s police were using it to disproportionately target black and Latino men during routine traffic stops. Pressed on the constitutionality aspect, Ryan repeated that he’s not familiar enough with the issue to have an opinion.” [HuffPost]

THE MEDIA IS THE WORST, PT. 582,623,161 – But what about Hillary’s gaffe policy? Jonathan Cohn: “A few days before Clinton’s speech [on her college debt plan], [senior policy adviser Ann] O’Leary convened a final conference call to discuss media strategy. Anticipating a lot of attention, she instructed the team to be ready by the phones. Clinton delivered her address at a high school in Exeter, New Hampshire, and afterward, held a press conference in the gym. She got just one query about the plan. Earlier that week, Trump had described Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly as having ‘blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever’… Over the next 24 hours, the tuition plan received only perfunctory coverage. ‘The calls just never came,’ recalls Gene Sperling, another one of Clinton’s advisers. ‘It was all Kelly-Trump, 24/7.’ Even many professional policy types didn’t grasp the full scope of her proposal; I didn’t realize it myself until I began researching this article. As primary season wore on, her scheme was overshadowed by a bolder, shinier promise from Senator Bernie Sanders: free public college for everyone.” [HuffPost]

National dialogue on race update: “Conservative USA Today columnist and University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds caused an uproar on Twitter when he urged motorists to drive over protesters blocking a highway in North Carolina.  ‘Run them down,’ Reynolds, who also produces the Instapundit website, tweeted late Wednesday with an image of the protesters on I-277. Twitter suspended the account, but [later reinstated it].” [HuffPost]

Top 2 Pieces Of Advice To Know If He Or She Is The One

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to Know If He or She Is The One when we are in a new relationship? Wouldn’t that simplify things? Unfortunately, it’s not that simple for many of us. In fact, it’s one of the most popular questions we get from our readers and clients: “How can I really be sure he’s the one?”

Well, the plain truth is, YOU CAN BE SURE! Although please understand that, “SURE,” does not always equate to error-free… Understand also that there will be bumps on the road whether she turns out to be Ms. Right or not. It’s just the way it goes.

2016-09-22-1474570788-5714834-CareerCouple_iStock_000010604809_Large.jpg

Sadly though, too many of us get blind folded in a relationship. We get stuck too long in the infatuation phase and we simply refuse to look at the signs that are ALWAYS there for us to see IF… we are willing… an emotional high without any commitment. For that reason, we like to keep things simple and straightforward whenever we get confronted with this issue. Simplicity brings clarity. And when it comes to clarity, here is something we want to make very clear: Infatuation is not love, it’s an emotional high without any commitment.

So here is our Top 2 Pieces of Advice to Conquer Indecision and Know if He/She is The One. We hope it will help you move forward with confidence.

#1 A Blurred Vision Will Get You In The Ditch

Have you ever driven in a blizzard? Or riding your car at night on a poorly lit road behind a messed up windshield with no water fluid left in the tank? Yes? Well then you know those are strong warnings to stop the car before you get in the ditch. Your relationship is no different.

If you and your partner do not have a CLEAR vision of what you want your relationship to be, or, if you “kind of have” one but you are not quite sure if the two of you are in alignment with it…WARNING! It’s time for you to pause and start to define for yourself what your vision is. Then if the two of you can’t agree with it… what is there left to debate about???

#2 Are You Embarrassed?

Okay, now we’re dropping the bomb on you. The 800-pound gorilla is in the room so don’t pretend You Ain’t Seeing It!
Are you embarrassed and uncomfortable with him or her in public? I mean we know you like the guy but be honest here. Does he make you want to shrink smaller than Peter Pan when he tags along on your nights out with your friends or family? Or worse, do you simply avoid social outings to spare you the aggravation or discomfort?
Come on. If he/she were “The One” you would be very, very proud to be accompanied with that individual. Not the other way around.

Some Wild Facts About Our Eyes

2016-09-21-1474473708-5690372-eyes.jpg

I spent a good 12 hours yesterday in front of my laptop monitor. I didn’t plan to go that long, but hey, life happens, and things need to get done. The upside: I got a ton of things done. The downside: my eyes were seriously strained at the end of the day.

When I went to bed last night, still feeling the burn, so to speak, I got to thinking about how much we take our peepers for granted. I mean, how much do we really know about them, apart from the fact we use them to see and they come in a variety of cool colors? And so today, I scoured the web to compile a list of pretty fascinating eye trivia. Let’s get our learn on!

Our eyes have two million working parts, seven million cones which help us see colour and detail, plus 100 million cells (a.k.a. rods) that provide our night vision.

The average blink lasts for about 1/10th of a second.

A key reason eyes become tired at the computer: we blink less often. (Lesson learned.) And yes, sometimes a good nap can help.

80% of all human memories are determined by what we see.

Eyes are the body’s second most complex organ after the brain.

One reason we may never make it to Mars: long-term space travel can wreaking havoc on astronoauts’ eyes.

Eye color is determined by the amount of melanin in your iris.

There’s still no successful method of transplanting an eyeball. The optic nerve that connects the eye to the brain is too sensitive to reconstruct successfully.

Heterochromia is the (pretty darn cool) condition where your eyes are two different colors.

Out of all the body’s muscles, the ones that control your eyes are the most active.

Babies are born color blind.

Blue-eyed people have a common ancestor with every other blue-eyed person.

During major depression episodes, people see less contrast, making colors seem duller.

Smoking reduces night vision.

Under the right conditions, humans are capable of seeing the light of a candle 14 miles away.

It kind of feels like laser eye surgery (a.k.a. LASIK) has been around forever. But the first procedures in the U.S. took place in 1999.

Geckos can see colors 350 times better than a human.

To prevent sore eyes, be sure to follow the 20-20-20 rule while working on a computer: look at something twenty feet away from your computer every twenty minutes for twenty seconds.

Evangelical Pastor: Donald Trump Under ‘Concentrated Satanic Attack’

Donald Trump is locked in a war with Satan.

At an event in Cleveland on Wednesday, an evangelical pastor warned the Republican presidential candidate that he was fighting none other than Lucifer himself. 

Pastor Darrell Scott said that five years ago, an unnamed “nationally known preacher” claimed that if Trump ran for president, he would come under a “concentrated satanic attack.” Scott said the preacher warned of “a demon, principalities and powers, that are going to war against you on a level that you’ve never seen before.”

What’s more, Scott affirmed that this satanic attack was taking place right now. 

I’m watching it every day,” Scott said in a clip posted online by Right Wing Watch.

Scott then held a ritual where he and others laid hands on Trump as the pastor’s wife, Belinda, asked God to “give him the anointing to lead this nation.”

Why Your Environment Is Working Against You—And How To Fix It

This article first appeared on QuietRev.com

Did you know that the way we dress, our facial expressions, our posture, and the tone of our voice make up 93 percent of what we communicate to others?  Research pioneered by Dr. Albert Mehrabian shows that what we communicate non-verbally can be highly impactful. We are hardwired to listen to our senses without conscious thought, and this ability helps protect us from danger and saves us time making endless decisions throughout the day.   

If we are so influenced by our senses, what else is subconsciously triggering our everyday decisions?

Lately, I’ve been trying to pay more attention to “nudges” in the built environment around us. The built environment includes the size and shape of our roads, parks, and buildings: these all drive our behavior. Specifically, I’ve been in search of ways the built environment can affect decisions we make about our health. What we see, hear, smell, taste, and feel impacts our actions—and emerging research in urban planning, occupational health, and behavioral science validates this. Here are just a few of the many ways to leverage the built environment to improve health outcomes:

Nudges to encourage movement

Building location and access to public amenities can impact how much we move. For example, research shows that proximity to parks and other recreational facilities is consistently associated with higher levels of physical activity and healthier weight status among youth and adults. The same goes for proximity to public transit—there is a link between access to public transportation and physical activity since transit use typically involves walking to a bus or subway stop. In one study, train commuters walked an average of 30 percent more steps per day and were four times more likely to walk 10,000 steps per day than car commuters.

Several studies show that simply letting people know the health benefits of taking the stairs and showing their location (like putting a sign in the elevator lobby or using stair banners, like these) increases stair usage by 54 percent. Taking this a bit further, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a “StairWELL to Better Health”campaign in its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. They use music, art, an upgraded appearance, and motivational signage to nudge employees to use the stairs more often. (Check out their downloadable signs, and see “before” and “after” images of their stairwells.)

Nudges to encourage healthy eating habits

You may not have heard the term “choice architecture,” but you experience its impact every time you stand next to the candy display at a checkout counter. Choice architecture refers to the different ways in which choices can be presented to consumers and the impact of that presentation on consumer decision making.

For example, the number of choices presented, the manner in which attributes are described, and the presence of a “default” can all influence consumer choice. Many companies are using this strategy by reducing the number of unhealthy foods available in the workplace or by making them harder to find.  ‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

Brian Wansink, director of Cornell University’s Food and Brand Lab and author of Mindless Eating, suggests a number of ways our eating behavior is significantly impacted by the way food is presented to us. For example, in some of his studies, people were 44 percent less likely to snack in kitchens that were tidy versus kitchen environments that were messy.

Keeping the kitchen clean is more than just a sanitation issue—it can affect how much we eat. In another study, Wansink found that people tend to eat less on plates that are 9-10 inches in diameter. People piled up food on larger plates, but felt “deprived” and went for a second helping when eating on smaller plates (around 6 inches in diameter). His other studies show that people are likely to serve themselves 20 percent less food on plates with “contrasting colors” to the food they are eating, e.g., white pasta on a red or blue plate. White breads and pastas on white plates? That is a recipe for “carb-loading”!

Nudges to reduce stress and improve well-being

We have a strong desire to be in and among nature. It’s only natural: for most of human history we spent all our time outdoors. This preference, often referred to biophilia, was introduced and popularized by E.O. Wilson, known as the “father of biodiversity.” Wilson suggests that there is an instinctive bond between human beings and other living systems.

In Biophilic Design: Theory, Science and Practice, authors Stephen R. Kellert, Judith Heerwagen, and Martin Mador describe the importance of nature for human productivity:

“Nature is rife with sensory richness and variety in patterns, textures, light, and colors. All organisms respond with genetically programmed reflexes to the diurnal and seasonal patterns of sunlight and climate.”

Interestingly, biophilia-based design can be manifested in many ways. The most obvious way is to incorporate real plants, water, and natural views into buildings. Another way is to create “natural analogues” or use materials and patterns that evoke nature, such as artwork, ornamentation, biomorphic forms, or the use of natural materials. A third way to use biophilia is through configuration of space, by organizing interior environments or man-made outdoor landscapes, using similar to natural environments elements. In its paper “The Economics of Biophilia,” environmental consulting firm Terrapin Bright Green suggests:

“Over the last quarter century, case studies have documented the advantage of biophilic experience, including improved stress recovery rates, lower blood pressure, improved cognitive functions, enhanced mental stamina and focus, decreased violence and criminal activity, elevated moods and increased learning rates.”

There are hundreds more nudges and design strategies such as these that urban planners, architects, product designers, business owners, and homeowners can use to shape the environment around us to improve health and well-being. In the words of Winston Churchill:

“We shape our buildings; thereafter, our buildings shape us.”

The key is to be aware of how our environment affects us and to use this knowledge for good.

Blue Bell Recalls Ice Cream In 10 States Over Listeria

Texas-based Blue Bell Creameries issued a voluntary recall of select products containing chocolate chip cookie dough pieces due to listeria concerns, it said on Wednesday, adding that no illnesses have been reported.

The possibly tainted ingredients were produced by a third party supplier, it said in a statement. The products with the chocolate chip cookie dough pieces were distributed in 10 states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

Blue Bell stopped production and distribution of ice cream to 25 states in April 2015 after the discovery of listeria. Ten reported cases of listeria were linked to Blue Bell frozen treats and three of those sickened later died.

Its products returned to store shelves about four months later after it overhauled production and stepped up testing to prevent another outbreak.

Texas Got Caught Flouting A Court Order On Voter ID, And Now It’s Under Supervision

A federal judge on Tuesday ordered the state of Texas to take steps to make it perfectly clear to voters that they’re not required to possess a voter ID before they cast a ballot in the upcoming election.

U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzalez Ramos had already given specific instructions to Texas officials to make sure no voter is turned away at the polls for not having an ID ― greatly relaxing the rules of what voters may or may not present in order to assert their identity.

But U.S. Department of Justice and voting rights groups this month complained to Ramos that Texas was flouting the order by making misleading statements in the press or publishing promotional materials that mischaracterized the language in Ramos’ order.

“The State is developing printed materials and mass media advertising that improperly narrow the Remedial Order,” DOJ attorneys wrote in a court filing. “Voters are receiving inaccurate or misleading information that suggests they will not be able to cast ballots that count in November.”

Voting rights advocates separately charged that Texas officials were making statements to local media suggesting that anyone who signed a declaration attesting that they were unable to obtain the required ID ― a remedy Ramos expressly authorized ― would be criminally investigated.

In response to these accusations, Ramos on Tuesday ordered Texas to reissue any press releases about her August order to indicate the precise language about the relaxed rules for voter ID, as well as to edit accordingly the posters to be used at polling stations on Election Day.

Texas also must update any and all websites dedicated to “voting rights and procedures,” including VoteTexas.gov, to correctly note that voters who lack an adequate form of photo ID and “cannot obtain one due to a reasonable impediment” may still cast a ballot after signing an affidavit.

Perhaps the most punishing part of Ramos’ order was a requirement that Texas submit to lawyers for the federal government and the voting rights plaintiffs “scripts and copy for documents and advertisements that have not yet been published for review and objection prior to publication” ― which would presumably give these parties vetting power over the materials.

Marc Rylander, a spokesman for Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R), didn’t make much of Tuesday’s order, noting in a statement that its already-printed education materials “gave voters a correct impression” of the softened rules, including the affidavit option for those without proper ID.

Rylander added that Texas would ask the U.S. Supreme Court “this week” to review a July appeals ruling that declared the state’s voter ID law violated the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Jennifer Clark, an attorney with the Brennan Center for Justice, which has been involved in the legal challenge to Texas’ voter ID law from the start, hailed Tuesday’s development, but signaled her organization would keep watching.

“Thankfully, the court has asked officials to correct some of the misstatements and reissue many of the inaccurate materials. But there is still work to do,” Clark said in an email. “The secretary of state’s office and local election officials have a history of making intimidating statements that could scare legitimate voters away. These can’t stand in a democracy.”

7 Things You Need To Know To Tame The Monkey Mind

The monkey mind is something every modern human is familiar with. It’s that incessant thought stream that no matter how hard you try never seems to settle down.

It’s the worries that keep you up at night, the assumptions that cause you grief, the projections you make about the future and the regrets and sentiments you go over from the past.

To tame the monkey mind takes commitment and a deep inner desire for peace. Calming the monkey mind is the first step on the path towards life mastery.

When you consciously realize that your thoughts are energy, and that the energetic implications of what you maintain focus on are actually creating your life to be based in either joy or suffering, you can be empowered to take control over your monkey mind and access the peace of mind that makes sheer existence a true gift.

1. Seek Common Ground and Connection

Division is a distraction from the divine. When you see yourself as a lone wolf, you lose sight of the pack, and you struggle to survive, let alone thrive. Yet when you can look around and feel a connection to all the people you encounter, everything changes.

You start to focus on connection instead of seeing everything as separate. Nothing is separate. The sun in the sky keeps us all alive. The people around you complaining about their mundane daily disturbances are going through the motions just like you are, they’re merely at a different point in their personal evolution.

Instead of focusing on your independence and feeding your loneliness with divisive thought patterns, bring the focus back to finding common ground.

When you do this you shift your entire perspective.

2. Look Deeper Than the Story

Society, the people you surround yourself with, your past experiences and your present belief system all work to strengthen the story you’re narrating in your head all day long. It’s so easy to attach to your story and your thoughts are the glue that binds you there.

If you struggle with self-esteem and that’s a part of your story then without a doubt your thoughts are the roots keeping that belief alive.

When you can remain present and focus on how you feel in each moment you can start to release the constant narration and let go of the belief structures embedded in your story that hold you back from realizing your true potential.

3. Realize YOU Are Not Your Thoughts

Endless thoughts flow through your mind. A thousand thoughts pass through your mind every hour, and you have two options.

The first option is to allow your mind to act like a hose. Thoughts stream in through the top of the funnel and are directed out, they’re let go of, and they flow elsewhere without attachment.

The second option is to allow your mind to act like a filter. Thoughts attempt to pass through the filter but they get trapped. The filter of your mind clings to them for analysis and attachment. The filter gets all clogged up full of thoughts based in what you want and what you don’t want.

When you believe that every thought matters, that every thought that enters your brain is you, and that every thought needs to be examined, you become overburdened, overwhelmed, confused, directionless and prone to overanalyzing. You create internal resistance because you believe on a subconscious level that you are your thoughts.

When you allow your thoughts to show up and pass away without clinging on to them in an attempt to analyze and integrate, you access a freedom that few people embody. You enter into a vibrational state of allowing which is expansive and creates space for you to access the peace and pure joy of being.

4. Let Go of Excuses

I don’t have time. I’m too busy. These are everyone’s favorite excuses for not allowing connection, acceptance, and peace to enter your life on the level of experience.

When you’re ready to let go of the monkey mind and free yourself from the chains that keep you stuck in your head and separated from the world around you, you stop making excuses.

Breaking down the mental constructs that you’ve been attached to and strengthening for your entire life is no easy task, but it is possible and the more excuses you make, the longer it will take to break away from the mental chatter.

5. Develop a Drama Free Mentality

There’s a tendency in our society to become addicted to drama. The boldest example of this is television, you flick on the TV and suddenly you’re immersed in a world wrought with drama.

Breaking the cycle of drama will create more peace in your life, thoughts and relationships. Over time you can consciously train your brain to let go of the things you would normally make a big dramatic deal over.

Your life can be whatever you want it to be, a soap opera or a peaceful expansive existence that plays out moment by moment.

6. Release Judgement

What were they thinking? What’s wrong with them? Why are they doing that?

Judgment creates an inner resistance, a pushing against what is without ever changing what is. When you allow yourself to move into acceptance, even with the things you don’t particularly like, the monkey mind backs down.

The monkey mind thrives on judgment and drama, it’s the fuel that feeds the fire of your thoughts.

When you would normally jump into judgment, whether it’s over someone else’s actions or your own, try to practice allowing things to just be as they are. Allowing isn’t the same as condoning, it’s simply an energetic shift which helps you release attachment and aversion, the monkey mind’s favorite snacks.

7. Practice Awareness

Practice awareness of the thoughts streaming through your mind. You can’t one day wake up and decide to tame the monkey mind without bringing awareness of the thoughts themselves to the forefront. Awareness is the balm that soothes the irritation the monkey mind loves to create.

Awareness is different from attachment because it integrates with the energy of allowing. Thoughts pass by and your awareness shines a light upon them without the incessant desire to unconsciously attach to their meaning.

In every moment you can bring awareness to the forefront of what you’re feeling and thinking. When you notice anger and irritation bubbling up let yourself become consciously aware of these thoughts and your reaction to them and then just let them go.

5 Body Imbalances You Might Unknowingly Experience

By: Cassie Shortsleeve

Technology has improved our lives in many ways, but not without some consequences, including these five common bodily aches. Here’s how to address the pain without pulling the plug.

There’s no doubt that technology has its perks, from allowing us to work from all corners of the earth to meditating via an app at the touch of a finger. But despite the many advantages technology brings us every single day, it also has a downside–one that can be very painful if ignored. Americans suffer from a number of ailments relating to technology, including a type of back and shoulder pain that is now often referred to as “tech neck” (the repeated act of craning your neck forward and down over a screen, resulting in discomfort that can lead to strain and stiffness). The solution, however, isn’t to disconnect and revert back to powerless Pilgrim living. Instead, heed this advice from Sonima.com‘s pain and anatomy advisor, Pete Egoscue: “If an activity is hurting us, take a look at the body. Pain is the body’s way of trying to tell us something.”

What is your body saying? It could be hinting at an imbalance. Maybe you’re not vertically loaded properly–meaning your head, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles aren’t stacking up right. Or perhaps you’re just not bearing weight evenly, says Egoscue, creator of the Egoscue Method for pain-free living.

To find out exactly what your body is telling you, tune in. Once you start paying attention to the subtle signals (usually accompanied by a minor ache), stretch or shift positions to continue enjoying your TV, laptop, smartphone or whatever device is captivating your attention in comfort and with peace of body and mind. Use Egoscue’s guide below to help translate your body’s messages and take appropriate action.

When this hurts: BACK, SHOULDERS, HEAD
Your body may be saying…change the way you sit.
Sitting with your shoulders slumped forward, hip flexors shortened, and back rounded can put extra stress on your lower back, which may curve into a ‘C’ shape instead of its natural ‘S’ shape. This pain doesn’t come from only sitting, but also from being misaligned. Your body is compensating, Egoscue says.
Listen and learn: Look down at your feet. You want them hip-width apart facing forward with toes slightly turned in. Your knees will want to come together, but keep them out, he says. Then pull your shoulders down, relax your abs, and roll up and forward with your hips, putting an arch back into your lower back with your pelvis. In this position, he says, you’re vertically loaded. “That’s the way you sit without effort. Your body has just adapted and adjusted to what you have conditioned it to do.” Sit like this and you could notice back and shoulder pain dissipate and even see improvements in issues, like constipation and digestion, he says.

To learn the four other body imbalances that you might unknowingly experience, continue reading the original article on Sonima.com.

Readers are also treated to several graphic elements, includ-ing a vampire tale for the rest of us and some greeting cards with a special touch.

Russian Jets Carried Out Airstrike On UN Aid Convoy, U.S. Officials Say

WASHINGTON, Sept 20 (Reuters) – Two Russian Sukhoi SU-24 warplanes were in the skies above an aid convoy in Syria at the precise time it was struck on Monday, two U.S. officials told Reuters on Tuesday, citing U.S. intelligence that has led them to conclude Russia was to blame.

Russia has denied its aircraft or those of its Syrian government allies were involved in the incident, in which 18 trucks from a 31-vehicle convoy were destroyed. The strike appeared to deal a fatal blow to Syria’s fragile week-old ceasefire.

Embracing The Seasons

2016-09-20-1474397645-5543226-fall.jpg

The seasons are what a symphony ought to be:
four perfect movements in harmony with each other.
— Arthur Rubinstein

Pumpkin pie spice lattes, boots, rakes, hoodies, and long yoga pants announce this time of the year. In September where I live, I need the heater in the morning and the air conditioning in the afternoon; in October the nights are cold and the garden begins its slumber. I love summer’s pizazz, but by the time fall blows in, the autumn colors take second to none.

There’s something extraordinary about every turn of the globe. Much like our lives, we can mourn the passing of each season of our lives or applaud the adventure of the new span of time.

As I pluck the pumpkins from our garden to decorate the front porch, I remember not only the time I carved my first gourd, but I can still recall when our pre-schoolers struggled hopefully under the weight of their first pumpkins. I miss those days, but the cool weather brings them home to the fire pit in the front yard where they share the struggles and adventures of being adults now. I love this time of life where they spend time with us because they want to rather than because they’re grounded! Both spells of time are precious.

And like the changing seasons and maturing trees, our lives progress to new heights and depths. We grow deep roots, and sturdy branches and survive the storms and springs. And as we mature, like the trees we plant, we provide shade and rest for those that come behind us. It’s so much fun celebrating those arriving into the spring of their lives, applauding the efforts and mistakes of those in the summer of their existence. It feels a bit strange and yet comforting to find us in the fall of our earthly residence. But rather than look back over my shoulder, I think instead I’ll find the golden nuggets of this portion of my life’s cycle. It takes storms, weeds, sunshine and slugs to teach plants to stand strong against nature’s destruction. Likewise, the rough stuff life throws at us makes us tougher, wiser, resilient, and prosperous.

Like the arrival of autumn, time marches on and we can moan about the good ole days or embrace the adventures to come. Today I think I’ll decorate the porch with autumn’s abundance, and go share a pumpkin spice latte with friends.

How will are you embracing this season of your life?

Sipping Sake For Health

I don’t know what I like more about sake… I could say the taste, flavor or the sensation of it in my mouth but let’s be honest, I love the feeling of being a giant with those tiny cups. It’s like a tea party for adults. When studying food culture and health, we see a relationship between libations and health. However, it was just drunken ranting until now. To my delight, someone has done some pretty good research on this and opened the door to what I already knew: moderate drinkers are healthier. I recently attended a lecture at Harvard University’s Healthy Plates, Healthy Lives conference and listened to Dr. Eric Rimm extol the virtues of alcohol, which include: increase in HDL (good) cholesterol, an increase in insulin sensitivity, and a decrease in inflammation.

With this knowledge in hand, I feel it is my duty to bring all of you some new and noteworthy alcohol options you may not have tried. This past Friday, I had the chance to visit The Joy of Sake in New York for its 11th annual celebration. This event was the largest sake tasting in the world, outside of Japan, and the cups may have been petite but the interest was enormous. The place was packed with foodies sampling the widest variety of sake I had ever seen. They presented over 400 premium sakes with appetizers to match the theme. From En Japanese Brasserie, serving up torotaku, which is fresh tuna belly tartare in a nori wrap, to SushiSamba’s offering of yellowtail tiradito with avocado, pickled red cabbage, crispy wonton skin and aji amarillo, amazing treats to tempt your taste buds lined the hall. A few of my favorite sake samples were Zipang Sparking Sake and Kamoizumi Shusen Junmai Ginjo better known as “Three Dots”. Sake, like wine, is about finding the bottle that speaks to you, however, there are some guidelines for doing sake right:

2016-09-17-1474125414-7969348-gina_keatley_joy_of_sake_2016.JPG

Portion Your Pour. Although alcohol may benefit your health, stick to the right amount and be sure to drink in moderation. I see many of my patients abstain from drinking Monday through Friday only to run wild on the weekend. The idea is that it is not only the amount you drink but also when you drink it. According to the research for women, it’s one drink every other day, and for men, it’s one to two drinks every other day. This produces an effect in the body called hormesis, which is something that harms you a little bit, like alcohol, but your body responds by becoming stronger. So, it is still unrealistic to binge on a whole bottle of whiskey and expect wellness.

Make It A Social Activity. The aspect of drinking I feel is quite important but so often overlooked is the comfort of sharing a dining and drinking experience with others. Eating and drinking alone is strongly associated with depression, which can cause a whole host of problems; sharing a meal and drink can make you and others feel better, which can decrease blood pressure and help you to relax.

Pair It With Asian-ish Menus. Creating your menus to be more pan-Asian allows you to include elements that are often left out of American menus. From seaweed to miso, adding one new ingredient, like sake, opens the doors to many others with healthful benefits. As Americans, we are always mixing and playing with food cultures anyways, why not be open to the idea of including sake in your beer, wine, and whiskey repertoire. I mean, we came up with the sushi burrito didn’t we? Who knows what we will eat next.

Finding the balance in drinking for pleasure and health may seem like a new concept. But I assure you that if you merge the two ideas, it will allow you to maintain a wholesome life because being healthy isn’t all about your body but also your soul.

Be Fearless, Be Full.

Trump: I Never Said Muslims Should Be Profiled

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Monday said he has never suggested that law enforcement or immigration officials screen Muslims more than other groups.

“I never said the term ‘Muslim,’” Trump told Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, who asked whether Trump’s profiling plan could cause all Muslims to be viewed with suspicion. “I’m saying we’re going to profile people that maybe look suspicious, I didn’t say [if] they were Muslims or not.”

Trump has built his presidential campaign on the promise to keep other people out of the U.S. ― be they immigrants from Central and South America, refugees from the war-torn Middle East, or citizens of countries Trump says are “compromised” by “terrorism,” although he won’t actually name those countries. His remarks on Fox News followed bombings in New York and New Jersey over the weekend that left scores of people injured. The suspect, Ahmad Rahami, is a naturalized U.S. citizen who came from Afghanistan as a child with his asylum-seeking father. 

Trump promised to expand the use of “profiling,” an illegal tactic in which authorities target certain individuals for suspicion based on their race, ethnicity, religion or nationality. Though he tried to distance himself from illegal profiling, his presidential campaign website still proudly displayed Trump’s longstanding promise to institute “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.”

Pressed by O’Reilly on what it means to “look suspicious,” Trump exclaimed, “I don’t know! These are [profiling] experts, that’s what they do.They profile. You go to Israel, and [U.S. law enforcement] should study [Israel], because Israel’s done a phenomenal job at this. They’re not happy about [having to profile], but they do it. And people aren’t complaining about it. But we have to do it, we have to profile.” 

O’Reilly noted that Trump’s plan wasn’t aimed at profiling “guys with leather jackets and blue eyes,” which both men understood to mean that Trump would single out Muslims and people from the Middle East, and not blue-eyed caucasians.

“I’m not using the term Muslim!” Trump insisted.“I’m saying we’re going to have to start profiling. And I don’t know if it’s that bad, but certainly it’s not a wonderful thing. But we have a country to keep safe. And you know, and I know, it’s going to get worse.” 

For anyone who’s paid even remote attention to Trump’s campaign over the past year, Trump didn’t have to use the word Muslim. Since announcing his candidacy, Trump has used the terms “Muslim” and “Islam” thousands of times, almost always in order to warn his supporters of the threat posed by the world’s 1.6 billion followers of the religion.

On Monday evening, Trump met with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, a move intended to make the reality TV star look presidential. Trump’s campaign said the nominee emphasized to Sisi “his high regard for peace-loving Muslims.” Sisi is a career military officer who seized power in a coup, and whose government detains political dissidents indefinitely without trial.

The profiling system Trump has pointed to as a model for the United States is Israel’s system of profiling and screening Arabs, non-Jews, and occupied Palestinians. The United Nations has labeled Israel’s institutional oppression and segregation of the largely Muslim Palestinians an “apartheid.” 

“Israel does it, and Israel does it very successfully,” Trump told O’Reilly. “And when they see someone they’d like to talk to, or have a look at, or open up their satchel and see what’s inside, they do it. And they don’t like to do it, but they do it. And we have to do it.”

Trump complained that constitutional protections against police profiling in the United States mean that “you have a woman who’s 87 years old from Sweden, and we have to look at her the same way we’re going to look at somebody else [who looks suspicious]. It’s ridiculous.”

 

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 Waste Your Entire Life: A Quick Guide To Pleasure

The easiest way to waste decades of your life is to mistake pleasure for fulfillment.

Pleasure lives in the realm of now. It’s made of feeling and emotion, which are both very important, but predictably unstable. It’s impossible to base a meaningful life solely on the pursuit of pleasure.

At the extreme end of pleasure: over-eating, over-sleeping, chronic masturbation and sex addiction, television, benders, cocaine and ice cream (the verdict is still out here). Push the button, get the stimulus. Constant stimulation to dull the pain, anxiety and existential uncertainty of being a human in society.

It feels good to feel good. So why not try to feel good all the time? Pass the mint chocolate chip, please.

Fulfillment is concerned with your highest vision for the future. It doesn’t equate pain or discomfort today with pain or discomfort tomorrow. It assumes that the best is always yet to come. Those looking for fulfillment out of life will do things that aren’t fun now, to reap massive rewards later.

In his book Autobiography of a Yogi, Indian spiritual guru Paramahansa Yogananda recalls a conversation between a sage and his student:

The student exclaimed, “Master, you are wonderful….You have renounced riches and comforts to seek God and teach us wisdom.”

To which the wise sage replied:

“You are reversing the case! I have left a few paltry rupees, a few petty pleasures, for a cosmic empire of endless bliss. How then have I denied myself anything? I know the joy of sharing the treasure. Is that a sacrifice? The shortsighted worldly folk are verily the real renunciates! They relinquish an unparalleled divine possession for a poor handful of earthly toys!”

This irony captures the essence of seeking pleasure over fulfillment.

The other way toward fulfillment: Training for a triathlon, starting a business, writing a book, recording an album. All of these things can bring pleasure in the short term. But more often than not, they do not. They are not fun. They are a constant struggle. They take years to master. They are never urgent and the easiest things to postpone.

(Especially if a new season of Walking Dead is on.)

But these are also the types of activities that, done day after day, lead to the highest quality of life and most pleasure long term. Not the acute, “OMG this is so fun” type of pleasure — but the more subtle, albeit equally exhilarating feeling of overarching satisfaction with one’s life.

These types of activities make you feel like you’re worth a damn. And that’s important. Because you are.

Pleasure versus fulfillment is the difference between spending your time and investing it. Or the difference between consuming and creating.

The time will pass anyway — but at the end of a lifetime, what will you have to show for it?
Some of us will have 100,000 hours of television, a leased Mercedes and a bunch of clothes we got sick of last year as evidence that we were here.

Others will have created a legacy that leaves the world a better place and makes a difference for people we’ve never even met.

Which one will you be?

3 Basic Choices To Empower Our Relationships

There are so many things we can all do to improve our existing relationships, regardless of their nature. But if we only applied these 3 Basic Choices To Empower Our Relationships, we would certainly make them more fulfilling for all parties involved.

2016-09-19-1474308214-435847-Couplewithbikes_iStock_70626075_LARGE.jpg

#1 Choose Loyalty
This of course means being there when it matters. But it also means standing up for the relationship by not getting involved in gossip talks with others, about our lover, friend, sibling or whoever that person may be. The loyalty we show when the person is there to see is powerful, but the one we display to others when that person is not there to witness, can make the relationship bullet proof.

#2 Choose To Give
Relationships are, in many instances, like joint bank accounts. The account holders can only withdraw what they’ve put in. And the more they put in, the more “compound interest” they can expect to reap! Contrary to common belief, our main responsibility in a relationship is to give. It’s always easy to question the other “joint account holder’s” behavior, but if we have the relationship at heart, we will seek to give first.

#3 Choose Truthfulness
There’s always a fork in the road in any relationships. One side of the fork seems to commonly offer a wider and smoother path, whereas the other often looks narrower and bumpier. This comes in the form of an event or a situation when we have to choose between the plain truth or… a “twisted” one. As hard as it is to say, we should always choose the truth. When we do, not only does it display that we stand for our word, it also echoes our loyalty and our willingness to continue to give to the relationship.

The endless choices we now have in all areas of life, affect our perceptions. Perceptions like the new “flavor of the month” or the novelty, ought to be better than the “old” one… Or the sense that everything is disposable, because after all, I can always get a new upgraded version of what I have… It brings also the notion of “change,” that we have to look for change at all costs, because if we don’t, we may become obsolete or “passé.”

When it comes to our relationships, we seriously think that we have to be very cautious about the subtle effects of the “endless choices society” we live in. We think it’s time for all of us to make basic choices that will empower the relationships we cherish. The kind of choices that are not new, on the contrary, they are rooted, old fashioned choices, that define who we are, where we come from, and more importantly can remind the other person in the relationship, what we intend to continue to build upon.

�Mi Raza Primero!” (My People First!): Nationalism, Identity, and Insurgency in the Chicano Movement in Los Angeles, 1966-1978

�Mi Raza Primero!” (My People First!): Nationalism, Identity, and Insurgency in the Chicano Movement in Los Angeles, 1966-1978


�Mi Raza Primero! is the first book to examine the Chicano movement’s development in one locale-in this case Los Angeles, home of the largest population of people of Mexican descent outside of Mexico City. Ernesto Ch�vez focuses on four organizations that constituted the heart of the movement: The Brown Berets, the Chicano Moratorium Committee, La Raza Unida Party, and the Centro de Acci�n Social Aut�nomo, commonly known as CASA. Ch�vez examines and chronicles the ideas and tactics of the insurgency’s leaders and their followers who, while differing in their goals and tactics, nonetheless came together as Chicanos and reformers.Deftly combining personal recollection and interviews of movement participants with an array of archival, newspaper, and secondary sources, Ch�vez provides an absorbing account of the events that constituted the Los Angeles-based Chicano movement. At the same time he offers insights into the emergence and the fate of the movement elsewhere. He presents a critical analysis of the concept of Chicano nationalism, an idea shared by all leaders of the insurgency, and places it within a larger global and comparative framework. Examining such variables as gender, class, age, and power relationships, this book offers a sophisticated consideration of how ethnic nationalism and identity functioned in the United States during the 1960s and 1970s.

Trump Wins First Debate

Apparently pretty much everyone I know is a bed-wetter.

The term gained currency in politics in January 2010 when Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, David Plouffe, in a Washington Post opinion piece titled “November doesn’t need to be a nightmare for Democrats,” gave this advice to his party: “No bed-wetting.” “Instead of fearing what may happen,” he wrote, “let’s fight like hell.”

He could have gone with the blander, “No hand-wringing,” which wouldn’t have risked offending enuresis sufferers. But “bed-wetting” got traction in the American political lexicon — even though, as it turned out, Republicans picked up 63 seats in the House that November and recaptured the majority, a nightmare that retroactively warranted plenty of dread about nocturnal incontinence.

Plouffe was back at it during this summer’s Democratic Convention. “No bed-wetting,” he tweeted. “Clinton will enter August with strong electoral college advantage.” But that lead has since been blown, and now my in-box is positively leaking anxiety.

Tell me Trump won’t win, my friends are emailing. It’s a slow-motion train wreck, they’re saying, and I feel helpless to stop it. Why is the media letting Trump get away with it? I wouldn’t be so nervous if it weren’t for Gary Johnson; if it weren’t for millennial apathy, for alt-right propaganda, for Paul Ryan’s cowardice; if it weren’t for sexism, racism, infotainment, Idiocracy, plutocracy, Citizens United, voter suppression… Help!

Now comes the first debate, adding fresh impetus to stock up on mattress pads. Yet no matter what Clinton does, the Trump-wins-first-debate narrative has already been written:

• Trump and Clinton will share the same stage. He is not a normal candidate, or even a normal person. She is. No matter what happens during the debate, it is declared afterward that the one-on-one matchup has “normalized” Trump. So Trump wins.

• Because the bar for a successful Trump performance has been set so low, when Trump fails to threaten to punch Clinton, it is acclaimed as evidence of his presidential temperament and general election pivot. Trump wins.

• Trump will attack Clinton. Clinton will defend herself. The verdict: Trump was strong; Clinton was on the defensive. But people want strength. Trump wins.

• The moderator, NBC’s Lester Holt, will call Trump on a lie. Trump will heap scorn on Holt, NBC, MSNBC, the Commission on Presidential Debates and the corrupt, dishonest media. Gallup says public trust in the media is now at an all-time low. People will love Trump’s attack on Holt. Trump wins.

• Clinton will nail Trump for lying. He’ll lie so much, she won’t be able to keep up with him. Fact-checkers will say, after the fact, that his pants were on fire, but it won’t matter. The debate will be scored for entertainment value, not truth-value. Clinton’s zingers will be called scripted. Trump’s taunts will be so uncivil, so beyond the political pale, so viciously funny, he will be crowned the change candidate in a change election year. Trump wins.

• Trump and Clinton will go after each other so relentlessly that the debate will be called a draw. But the Beltway consensus is that Clinton needs to win; Trump just needs to tie. So a tie is a win. Trump wins.

Even if Clinton wipes the floor with Trump, the media’s inherent bias is for suspense. The media business model requires capturing and keeping the audience’s attention, so corporations can sell our eyeballs to advertisers. It doesn’t matter how the debates go, or what the polls say; the press will portray the final stretch of this horserace as neck and neck, a photo finish, you won’t want to miss this, stay tuned.

Four years ago, I predicted that Romney would win the first debate. For this clairvoyance, a colleague dubbed me “a Jewish prophet.” I wish I could take credit for knowing that Obama would grudgingly phone in his performance, but all I did was deduce what good storytelling required the first debate and its aftermath to be: a rout, followed by a comeback. Trump’s campaign has signaled that he’s doing minimal prep for the debate. Maybe this is garden-variety expectation lowering, but even if he bombs, no media narrative will cover the last six weeks of the campaign as anything but a nail-biter.

If worrying that Trump can win this election makes me a bed-wetter, too, I cop to it. What could turn the race around? It’d help if the press didn’t make the same mistake over and over. Last Friday, when Trump conned the networks into turning what was billed as a press conference about Obama’s birthplace into a half-hour live broadcast of veterans’ testimonials for Trump and an infomercial for his new hotel, CNN’s John King admitted on air, “We got played again by the Trump campaign, which is what they do.” No doubt Trump’s base loved that humiliation. But will the press ever learn? By the time the media figures out that its addiction to BREAKING NEWS is a standing invitation to be punked, the guy who’s gaming them may be sitting in the Oval Office.

I do see signs that Trump’s press bullying is losing octane. The Los Angeles Times‘ lead story out of that birther event was headlined, “Trump trades one falsehood for two more,” and the New York Times led with “Trump Gives Up a Lie But Refuses to Repent.” If cable news covers the debates that unflinchingly, maybe Bed Bath & Beyond can let its inventory of waterproof bedding dwindle.

Series: Reaching Your Goals

By Hunter Glenn

______________________________________________________________________

Once, alchemists sought the secret formula for turning lead into gold. Nowadays, we seek things that are rather more unattainable. The perfect job. The perfect relationship. The perfect family life. Perfect health. Perfect everything!


Our Automatic Approach

Sam, for instance, tries to get the perfect body. His diet is whatever TV says is the latest “right way.” He exercises however his Facebook feed says is “the best way it’s done” (which is it again: cardio or strength?).

However, it’s hard to keep good habits; mostly Sam just tries until he fails (which is often).

When Sam was a student, he studied the one way he knew how. He picked his major, his profession, his job based on advice from his parents, with just a few moments reflecting on his own desires or how to do the most good with his career. Medical treatment? He gets whatever he hears is best according to hearsay and best friends.

You probably don’t need me to tell you how that’s working for Sam. Sometimes things go well, sometimes they don’t, more or less at random. Things just…happen to Sam; he rarely feels in control.

Sam lives his life on autopilot. And he sometimes wonders if this is really the best he can do.

For that, I admire Sam. He has a sense that there’s a better way, that he himself can do better. He’s self-aware, seeing that his “any ole’ way” strategy isn’t working for him. Realizing that if you’re lacking results, you must be lacking…something important… is the first great key.

A golden life needs a silver bullet. Without it, for all his admirable drive to improve his life, all his energy, I fear Sam will just move from one not-very-impressive strategy to another. Life often fails to reward our effort, if that effort is not properly directed.

What approach can make us powerful, succeeding in every area of life? You might have heard it before:
Seek the truth all the days of your life
And “the truth will set you free.”

The Rational Approach

Unlike Sam, Sally seeks the truth. She looks on a mess of a thousand lies and plucks the one nugget of truth out of it. She grows more powerful as the years pass; the diamonds in the rough inevitably end up in her hands; others may be satisfied by fool’s gold, but her kind want the genuine article, and they get it.

Results. Sally’s work is rewarded with results. She sifts through diet advice and finds what really works. Changing habits isn’t easy for anybody, but Sally figured out how to make that work for her, too. Her exercise plan works. She has a feeling of control in her life. She knows exactly why she chose what to study and the work she wants to do. The truth has served her well.

The star’s natural state is to shine surrounded by darkness on every side. Truth’s natural state is to shine amid frustrated, useless lies on every side. The truth-seeker’s natural state is to succeed on every side, while others ask “What’s your secret?” Sally’s secret is not assuming that she holds the truth, but to keep checking whether what she believes is true, and how well her beliefs enable her to accomplish her goals.

It’s so tempting to believe that we have the truth, isn’t it? Who would admit otherwise? Indeed, anyone you ask will be willing to tell you the way to success.

Fake Answers

If we want to get to New York, which is worse, having no map, or following a map to Congo? The answer is even more obvious when maps to New York are right there for the taking, but we’re not taking them because we “already have our map.”

2016-09-02-1472782045-662474-pic2.jpg

This is why seeking the truth is only a first step. What if we just fall for the most convincing fake “truth” on the market?

Nate Silver, enjoying incredible success in his work of predicting the future, wrote a book called The Signal and the Noise¸ all about how to find the true “signal” (the truth) when it’s cut up in a thousand pieces and hidden, scattered in “The Noise” (fake answers). This is our second great key, finding the answer. Not just finding an answer, finding the answer, the truth.

These are the two great trials in life, the two gates on the road to success. First, asking the question, and second, finding the (right) answer. Finding our ignorance, then finding its cure. Starting a quest for truth, then resisting the siren call of fake answers.

Rationality is Results

What will happen when Sam learns to find the signal, the lighthouse in the distance, the guiding star, instead of going from one noise to the next?

He will succeed. He will move from one area of his life to the next, finding the useful tricks out of the useless, each adding to his chest of knowledge like precious gemstones. One area of his life after another will shine like the sun, as Sam himself begins to, one struggle after another defeated and trophied, a victory to be rightly proud of.

This is called rationality, of the real kind. Rationality is about results. And results come from finding the one path that leads upwards out of a thousand confused paths going nowhere.

Why rationality? Why not just be satisfied with what we’ve got, never looking for a better way to study, to work, to make decisions, to parent, or date, or get in shape, or get our life in shape? Why not be be satisfied with whatever answer we picked up along the way, and be satisfied with the results our efforts give us?

Then again, why shouldn’t you succeed? Don’t you want to stride through life, growing stronger by the day? Why shouldn’t you go from one area of life to the next, becoming healthier, happier, more capable, more successful, more anything you want?

There is a way. But there is also a cost.

2016-09-02-1472785714-6878237-pic3.jpg
Caption: Person holding flashlight shining at the stars (image credit)

The Cost

Can you lift your head up and search the stars? Can you admit that you have to look if you’re going to succeed?

Even if you pass this test, there is a second. Can you admit that if you didn’t spy the right answer the first time, you might not spy it the second? That you need to learn how to judge truth from error? Can you accept it if the truth isn’t what you thought it was, what you hoped it was?

If so…Then I repeat, there are answers.

Conclusion

Remember, the first great trial is realizing you have to look for answers. The obvious thing is to look for answers where you have none. But far more subtle (and difficult) is the need to look for answers where you already have some, but need to ask, “Am I letting a made-up map keep me from looking for a genuine one?”

I highly recommend How To Actually Change Your Mind to escape the chains of false knowledge.

And the second great trial is to become discerning, to get the right answer. To see a palace of glass and find the diamonds hidden in plain sight. To view the waving, warping kaleidoscope of fanciful ideas and see through their distraction to the truth. The signal amid the noise. Nate Silver’s The Signal and the Noise and other books like it are here.

Seek truth all the days of your life, and the truth will give you power to set yourself free. Be rational. Those who seek the stars for a lifetime, one day become stars themselves.


Questions for Consideration:

  • Why don’t we always feel in control of our lives?
  • What happened the last times you tried to improve your life?
  • Why do people say “knowledge is power?”
  • Why do we sometimes feel certain about things, only to later find out we were mistaken?

Are Head Transplants Possible… and Ethical?

During a cold, dreary summer in Switzerland 200 years ago, English author Mary Shelley sat down to write her novel “Frankenstein.”

The story — and subsequent adaptations for the screen — has gripped our imaginations ever since.

While reanimating the dead remains a scientific impossibility, scientists are pushing the boundaries of modern medicine closer and closer to Shelley’s vision.

As they do, the public’s uneasiness about the ethical limits of medicine has been stoked.

Take, for example, the announcement last year by Italian neuroscientist Dr. Sergio Canavero that he plans to perform the first human head transplant.

Not sometime in the distant future … but possibly in 2017.

And now he has a volunteer for the procedure — Valery Spiridonov, a 31-year-old Russian man with a degenerative muscle condition.

This has bumped Canavero’s bold plans from the realm of science fiction straight into the real world.

Like Victor Frankenstein, Canavero hopes to make great scientific advances, even if it means working at the fringes of modern medicine.

For some critics, though, transplanting a human head onto a new body crosses a line — one similar to the line that Shelley’s fictional doctor stepped over when he created his “creature.”

Is a head transplant possible?

Compared to transplanting a heart or kidney, a head transplant is technically much more challenging.

Surgeons will need to join many tissues of the head and new body, including muscles, skin, ligaments, bones, blood vessels, and most importantly, the nerves of the spinal cord.

But there has already been some groundwork laid for the “audacious plan” of Canavero and his partner, Chinese surgeon Dr. Xiaoping Ren, as described in the September issue of The Atlantic.

In the early 1900s, a Missouri surgeon transplanted the head of one dog onto the neck of another, creating one with two heads. This feat was repeated by Soviet and Chinese surgeons in the 1950s, with the dog living for 29 days.

In the 1970s, a surgeon from Ohio transplanted the heads of rhesus monkeys onto new bodies.

They survived and could even eat and follow objects with their eyes. But the doctor hadn’t reconnected their spinal cords, so they remained paralyzed.

Canavero and Ren have different plans.

They hope to fuse the nerves cells of the head and body using a gluelike chemical called polyethylene glycol.

Ren has already tested this chemical on mice with spinal cords that have been severed. The mice were walking within two days of the procedure.

In preparation for Spiridonov’s surgery next year, Ren’s team has also successfully transplanted a mouse’s head onto another body. This was later repeated on a monkey.

These animals, though, were euthanized within a day of the procedure. So future experiments are needed in order to know if a head transplant is a long-term solution.

Extremely risky procedure

According to The Atlantic, Canavero says there is a “90 percent plus” chance of success. Ren, though, is less definite about the outcome.

And as with all transplant surgeries, there are many risks.

Before Patrick Hardison underwent one of the world’s most extensive face transplants, doctors gave him a 50 percent chance of survival.

Infection, loss of blood flow to the transplanted organ, and rejection of the new tissue all lower the odds of success.

With a head transplant, loss of blood flow to the brain is an even larger problem. Lack of oxygen can damage the brain and leave a person with severe mental deficiencies.

Cooling both the head and body before and during surgery could allow the cells to survive longer without oxygen. Still, doctors would only have an hour or less to complete the surgery.

One of the most common risks of organ transplants is tissue rejection. With a head transplant, though, it would be the head that would be seen as “foreign” by the new body’s immune system.

Finding a donor body that is a good match for Spiridonov — in this case a male who died of head trauma with no damage to the body — could minimize this risk.

But he would need to take powerful immunosuppressive medications for the rest of his life to limit the chance that the new body’s immune system would attack the tissues of his head.

After surgery, Spiridonov would be kept in a coma for several weeks to allow his spinal nerves to heal.

But if he wakes up before his spinal nerves heal, there is a chance that he would be paralyzed. Or that his nerve cells would fuse incorrectly — with nerves meant to control the arms connected to the legs instead.

In spite of that, Spiridonov is still willing to face those odds.

His genetic condition, known as Werdnig-Hoffmann disease, has left him confined to a wheelchair.

His movements are limited to typing, feeding himself, and steering his wheelchair with a joystick.
Werdnig-Hoffmann disease is also fatal, although Spiridonov has already lived longer than his doctors had expected.

Crossing an ethical line

The fringe nature of Canavero’s and Ren’s plans has led to harsh backlash from scientists and ethicists.

Some have called it “nuts” or scientifically impossible.

Others are concerned that even though Spiridonov is aware of the risks, it still doesn’t make it OK for doctors to perform the surgery.

And then there is the cost — between $ 10 million and $ 100 million.

Would this money be better spent on helping the thousands of people who suffer spinal cord injuries each year?

Head transplants also raise issues of who the new body belongs to, especially in terms of its sperm or eggs.

If someone with a new body had a child, would the family of the donated body have visitation rights?

And then there are the more philosophical questions. What does it mean for a person’s sense of self to have a body that they weren’t born with?

There’s not even certainty that someone would be able to accept a new body as part of themselves.

The man who underwent the world’s first hand transplant was uncomfortable with his new hand.

So he stopped taking his immunosuppressive drugs and the hand had to be removed.

Public angst about head transplants may subside after a few successful surgeries, the way it has with face transplants.

But for now, Canavero and Ren are still working on the other side of a line that many think we shouldn’t cross.

In the spring of 2014, the hacker collective Anonymous took credit for hitting a number of health care and treatment facilities in the Boston area in defense of a patient there named Justina Pelletier. For background on her controversial case, which became the focus of national attention, read here or here.

The attacks became somewhat less anonymous when a man named Martin Gottesfeld was arrested in connection with them in February of this year, when his sailboat ran into difficulty off the coast of Cuba. A Disney cruise ship picked up Gottesfeld and his wife, and Gottesfeld was arrested when the ship docked in Miami. He has been in detention ever since. An indictment is expected any day.

For the first time, Gottesfeld is coming forward to explain why he did what he did, in an exclusive statement provided to The Huffington Post. A spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz, whose office is pursuing the case, said she had no updates on the case. Boston Children’s Hospital and Wayside, two of Gottesfeld’s targets, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Here is his statement, published in full:

Why I knocked Boston Children’s Hospital Off the Internet

The answer is simpler than you might think: The defense of an innocent, learning disabled, 15-year-old girl. In the criminal complaint, she’s called “Patient A,” but to me, she has a name, Justina Pelletier. Boston Children’s Hospital disagreed with her diagnosis. They said her symptoms were psychological. They made misleading statements on an affidavit, went to court, and had Justina’s parents stripped of custody.

They stopped her painkillers, leaving her in agony. They stopped her heart medication, leaving her tachycardic. They said she was a danger to herself, and locked her in a psych ward. They said her family was part of the problem, so they limited, monitored, and censored her contact with them.

Justina resorted to sneaking notes, hidden in origami, to tell her family what she wasn’t allowed to say around eavesdroppers. Hospital staff pushed her to do things she was physically incapable of, due to the physical condition they refused to acknowledge she has. They laughed at her as she struggled futilely. They left her on a toilet for hours when she couldn’t void her bowels. They left her secluded in a bare room, or alone in the hallway, sometimes for days when she couldn’t wheel herself elsewhere.

When they did move her, they ripped her toe nails, dragging her feet on the floor. They bruised her. Her legs swelled, her gums receded, and her hair fell out. This went on for 11 months at BCH.

Her parents went to the media, and a gag order was issued specifically prohibiting them from speaking to journalists. When she finally left the hospital (in large part thanks to the negative publicity,) she still wasn’t allowed home and her ordeal wasn’t over. BCH was still in charge and her suffering continued, though the most culpable had successfully manipulated the spotlight onto others.

At her new treatment center, aptly named “Wayside,” Justina was verbally assaulted while nude in the shower. She continued to be denied her medications and treated according to the BCH plan.

Her father broke the gag order, publicly stating her life was in danger. The story made big news, but there was no indication when Justina would be returned to her family and receive the long delayed treatment she desperately needed. A former BCH nurse called what Justina was enduring its proper term: torture. According to international humanitarian law, she was right.

I had heard many, too many, such horror stories of institutionalized children who were killed or took their own lives in the so-called “troubled teen industry.” I never imagined a renowned hospital would be capable of such brutality and no amount of other good work could justify torturing Justina. She wasn’t alone either. BCH calls what it did to her a “parentectomy,” and there had been others over at least the past 20 years.

I knew that BCH’s big donation day was coming up, and that most donors give online. I felt that to have sufficient influence to save Justina from grievous bodily harm and possible death, as well as dissuade BCH from continuing its well established pattern of such harmful “parentectomies,” I’d have to hit BCH where they appear to care the most, the pocket book and reputation. All other efforts to protect Justina weren’t succeeding and time was of the essence. Almost unbelievably, they kept their donation page on the same public network as the rest of their stuff. Rookie mistake. To take it down, I’d have to knock the whole hospital off the Internet.

I also knew from my career experience as a biotech professional that no patients should be harmed if Boston Children’s was knocked offline. There’s no such thing as an outage-proof network, so hospitals have to be able to function without the Internet. It’s required by federal law, and for accreditation. The only effects would be financial and on BCH’s reputation.

The network was strong, well funded, but especially vulnerable to a specific attack. Apparently BCH was unwilling to architect around the problem. I see such laziness often in my work, and it leaves our nation vulnerable.

I had spent my career building cyber-defenses. For the first time, I was on the offensive. I coded around the clock for two weeks to perfect the attack. Small test runs were made. BCH bragged to the media that they were withstanding the onslaught and hadn’t been taken down. They had no idea what was to come.

I finished the code just in time. It ran. BCH’s donation page went down. As they were down, I was nervous. I left it running for a few hours.

Then, with some donation time still let, I issued the command to stop the attacks—the point had been made. Justina wasn’t defenseless. Under the banner of Anonymous, she and other institutionalized children could and would be protected. There have been no such egregious parentectomies published at BCH since.

In 2016, Justina’s family announced they were suing Boston Children’s. The civil claim reads like a medical horror novel.

Under U.S.-ratified human rights Conventions, there can be no justification for torture, not even war, the threat of war, or the preservation of human life. Freedom from torture is a non-derogable human right, and the U.S. is obligated to investigate, prosecute, and punish all acts of torture, no matter who perpetrated them.

You’re Gonna Want To Know What This Feels Like

A few weeks ago, my brother took me to get my first Tattoo. As I sat in the chair with my arm extended, he put his hand on my shoulder and said to me, “Pay attention. Nothing else feels quite like this. You’re gonna want to know what it feels like.”

It was great advice. The outline of a guitar pick, the symbol that most reminds me of my dad, only took about five minutes to drill into my skin. I could tell how, without my brother’s reminder, I might have shied away from the pain, flinching or holding my breath, distracting myself somehow.

But instead, I did what he said, I paid attention. I noticed how, when the needle touched down, my arm was flooded with sensation, like twenty or thirty bees stinging me at once. I breathed the fire of the feeling into my whole arm, my shoulder, my fingertips, my left ribs. Within a few seconds, the pain relaxed to something more like pulling off a Band-Aid. After thirty seconds of this, Frank-the-tattoo-man, would pick up the needle and retrace the portion of line he just drew. Each time he made fresh contact, the cycle would begin again, BEES!…bandaid. BEES!…bandaid. Until five minutes later the tattoo was complete.

Since that day, I’ve realized my brother’s advice isn’t only for special occasions. It’s actually advice for life. The next day I found myself on an airplane with intense turbulence, an experience I frequently brace against, or try to ignore like it’s not happening. In that moment, his words came back, “Pay attention, you’re gonna want to know what it feels like.” So I opened myself to the experience. I felt my belly drop. I noticed the fear in the back of my neck. I released my tightening jaw, I felt my heart beating. I felt alive.

Last week, I was learning how to surf. This is a big deal for me because I find waves mostly terrifying. The first day out I felt like I was under attack and couldn’t really believe everyone else was out there for fun. But on the second day, I remembered! You’re gonna want to know, I settled myself down internally, and opened to the experience. I felt what it was to be tossed around beneath a wave. The quiet, the big, the smooth, the surrendered.

This morning I woke up to the sound of sprinklers. For breakfast, I bit into my favorite kind of doughnut. I watched my best friend’s baby yawn and smile and cry.

Pay attention. Pay attention. Pay attention. This is your life! You’re gonna want to know what it feels like.

Teacher’s Guide To Coping With Stress Is The Reading We All Need

All students literally everyone could use a list like this.

Alina Ramirez, a high school senior in Oxnard, California, tweeted a photo showing a list of “101 ways to cope with stress” on Sept 2., writing that her psychology teacher handed out the guide to his class.

It includes specific tips like getting up 15 minutes earlier, saying something nice to someone and petting “a friendly dog/cat,” as well as broader advice like “know your limitations and let others know them, too.”

The teacher, Brett Phillips, told BuzzFeed he’s been handing out the list for the past 10 years.

“I give students the list and then I have them pick five things that they need to start doing to lower their stress levels,” he said.

Since Ramirez posted the list online, its advice is reaching people far beyond Phillips’ classroom. As of Saturday afternoon it had more than 22,000 retweets and an extensive collection of replies thanking her for sharing it.

While not every tip on the list is going to help everyone (some of us are definitely not going to be getting up any earlier) there’s likely at least one or two things on the list that any person could find helpful. And a lot of them have some real basis in science. Interacting with pets, having plants around and even just smiling are all acts that have demonstrated stress-lowering powers.

Now get out there and pet a cat!

Supreme Cover-Up: How the Wisconsin Justice System Failed in the Walker John Doe

Recent elections have turned the Wisconsin Supreme Court from “one of the nation’s most respected state tribunals into a disgraceful mess,” wrote noted author on the courts Lincoln Caplan in 2015.

2016-09-18-1474229614-9840556-michaelgablemanheadshot900x507pxopt.jpg

The dysfunction is on full display in the documents revealed by the Guardian this week in its expose on the “John Doe” investigation into potentially illegal coodination between Scott Walker and dark money groups that were supposed to operate independently of his campaign.

John Doe Judge Fails on Expenditure Coordination

The Wisconsin John Doe investigation was started by a bipartisan group of district attorneys and Judge Barbara Kluka who saw sufficient evidence of probable cause to authorize search warrants of Walker’s top aides and a number of dark money groups. But Kluka stepped down and Judge Gregory A. Peterson was appointed. 

The type of high-dollar, high-donor fundraising discussed in this week’s Guardian expose had never happened in Wisconsin before. Yet Peterson quashed the search warrants in 2014 stating in a cursory decision:  

“I am persuaded by Friends of Scott Walker that the statutes do not regulate coordinated fundraising. Only coordinated expenditures may be regulated and the state does not argue coordination of expenditures occurred. Therefore, the subpoenas fail to show probable cause.”

But the documents released by the Guardian this week are replete with evidence of expenditure coordination. 

In concert with federal FEC rules, Wisconsin Government Accountability Board rules at the time stated that there is coordination “where there has been substantial discussion or negotiation between the campaign or the spender over, a communication’s: (1) contents; (2) timing; (3) location, mode, or intended audience (e.g., choice between newspaper or radio advertisement); or (4) ‘volume’ (e.g., number of copies of printed material or frequency of media spots).”

Stacks of emails show that Walker’s top campaign advisor and Wisconsin Club for Growth campaign guru R.J. Johnson approved, placed, and rotated ads in the 2011 Senate recalls, and in the 2011 Supreme Court race on behalf of multiple groups, including WCFG and its offshoot Citizens for Strong America, Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC), Jobs First Coalition (a shell group controlled by AFC’s Scott Jensen, the former Speaker of the Wisconsin Assembly who was brought down by his own campaign finance scandal), Wisconsin Family Action and later in 2012, the American Federation for Children. (Ad-Coordination)

Emails show R.J. Johnson juggling disclaimers, pulling one name off and slapping another on, approving ad buys and ad placement. The public would see a series of ads from purportedly different groups, but the reality was that R.J. Johnson was behind the shell game orchestrating the air bombardment. 

Scott Walker would boast to Karl Rove on May 4, 2011 “Bottom Line: RJ helps keeps in place a team that is wildly successful in Wisconsin. We are running 9 recall elections and it would be like 9 congressional markets in every market in the state and twin cities.” (emphasis added). (Key-Misc-Set-One, p.16)

In 2012 as the Walker recall approached, prosecutors point to two emails that show R.J. Johnson on both sides of the coordination issue, both dated April 30, 2012. One email has R.J. Johnson approving a final Friends of Scott Walker ad, sending the note “this should be final unless someone has an issue” to Friends of Scott Walker’s Keith Gilkes, WCFG’s Deb Jordahl and others. (2012-08-14-Exhibits-01-100-PT2, p.49)

CMD is not certain what the second email is that prosecutors are referring to, but there is an email dated April 30, 2012, where R.J. Johnson appears to direct Jordahl to spend the last few thousand dollars of WCFG money left over in a vendor’s media account: “we need to get this out, express today if possible,” R.J. Johnson says. (2012-08-14-Exhibits-01-100-PT2, p.47)

Wisconsin Supreme Court Misleads on Express Advocacy

The conservative majority of the Wisconsin Supreme Court was elected with at least $ 10 million in spending by the groups under investigation. Many outside groups outspent the justices themselves. Two justices, Gableman and Prosser, were asked to recuse by prosecutors, but refused.

In 2015, when it shut down the John Doe, the Wisconsin Supreme Court rewrote Wisconsin law in an attempt to legalize coordination between candidates and third party “independent” groups for “issue advocacy.” It is important to note that the court left intact the law’s prohibition on coordination around express advocacy or what is called its “functional equivalent.”  

Express advocacy ads — those that say “vote for” or “vote against” a candidate — are increasingly rare.  Campaign managers learned more than a decade previously that you didn’t need to say the “magic words” to have a devastating impact on an opponent. This is why the U.S. Supreme Court held in 2007 that a communication is the “functional equivalent” of express advocacy “if the ad is susceptible of no reasonable interpretation other than as an appeal to vote for or against a specific candidate.” 

The Wisconsin Supreme Court said in dismissing the John Doe that “the special prosecutor has not alleged any express advocacy.” Yet prosecutors raised express advocacy explicitly in their filing with the court under the hard-to-miss header “Express Advocacy.” (2014-2-21-Schmitz-Affidavit, p. 29)

They explained to the court how big groups like the Republican State Leadership Conference and the Republican Governors Association were in close contact with the Walker campaign. Both groups registered formally as an independent expenditure/express advocacy group with the Wisconsin elections board, and swore an oath saying they would not coordinate with Walker. RGA would spend a whopping $ 9.5 million in the Walker recall race on a barrage of ads that were the functional equivalent of express advocacy. 

Yet, the Supreme Court ignored these facts and when the special prosecutor asked to present more evidence, they fired him. 

Prosecutors alleged that “far from being independent, evidence shows that Johnson coordinated with RSLC on the content of ‘broadcast and cable’ advertising in the 2011 recall elections. Johnson coordinated radio advertising to ‘complement’ the ads RSLC was running in the same 2011 recall races.” 

Prosecutors alleged that “FOSW and its agents were regularly conducting meetings/conference calls with RGA to discuss campaign strategy including polling. Governor Walker conducted phone calls and attended fundraising events coordinated by RGA.” 

Indeed one email from RGA’s Nick Ayers directly to Scott Walker ccing Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus lays recommends a coordinated battleplan. “Spoke to Gillespie this morning. My sense is that everyone’s heart (AFP, WIGOP, RSLC, RGA, CFG) is in the right place but no one is clear on the entire battleplan, and that is leaving very vulnerable gaps in both the planning and execution of a winning strategy.” Ayers goes on to layout the battle plan in a key email. (2013-08-29-Schmitz-Affidavit, p 24). Among the groups referenced are the Koch’s Americans for Prosperity and Club for Growth. Ed Gillespie is a key GOP strategist with close ties to Rove who ran the Republican State Leadership Committee at the time. 

The coordination was evident on the expenditure side in the ads. “Forward–Walker, Backwards–Barrett” was a central theme in Walker campaign ads showing people walking backwards, clocks spinning backwards etc, including this May 7, 2012 ad. Republican Governors Association ads had the same theme, as did adds by WMC-IMC and other smaller groups like Wisconsin Recall Action. 

Many of these ads were the functional equivalent of express advocacy say experts. 

Prosecutors believe Walker raised funds for these WMC-IMC ads and that R.J. Johnson may have been paid for placing them. Investigators say in the filings that bank records reflect wire transfers in April and May 2012 from WMC-IMC to Ten Capitol (the ad firm of WCM) totaling $ 3.7 million. “Coinciding with the wire transfers to Ten Capitol, WMC-IMC received payments from WiCFG” wrote prosecutors. “Consistent with a commission for ad placement, R.J. Johnson and Associates received $ 50,000 from Ten Capitol on June 22, 2012.” 

The Wisconsin Supreme Court held that coordination with groups that run express advocacy ads or its function equivalent was barred, yet the court failed to look at the many ads that qualified as express advocacy or its functional equivalent and fired the special prosecutor when he objected. 

“The miscalculation I made in this investigation was underestimating the power and influence special interest groups have in Wisconsin politics,” said special prosecutor Francis Schmitz at the time, a retired U.S. Army colonel and former counter-terrorism prosecutor.

New Information on Gableman and Prosser Recusal

When prosecutors asked Gableman and Prosser to recuse, some scratched their heads. Why focus on those two when four Justices were elected with massive spending from Wisconsin Club for Growth and Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, two of the groups under investigation?

An email in the stack may answer this question. 

In the same email from Scott Walker  to Karl Rove on May 4, 2011, Walker writes: “RJ was the chief advisor to my campaign. He pulled together the team who flipped the Senate three times and the Assembly two times. He ran the effort that defeat the first incumbent Supreme Court Justice for decade back in 2008 and Club for Growth – Wisconsin was the key to retaining Justice Prosser.” (Key-Misc-Set-One, p.16)

In the 2008 Surpreme Court race Justice Louis Butler was unseated by Michael Gableman in an ugly race that resulted in the state’s judicial commisison filing a formal complaint against Gableman that was left unresolved by the ideological split on the Supreme Court.  Justice Gableman wrote the 2015 court decision shutting down the John Doe. 

These facts are newly relevant as the U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to take a look at the prosecutors appeal of the John Doe case this month.

Stephen Burlingham Going Beyond Art for Youth with Cancer

Cancer. The word that terrifies us, at any age. But when a young person is struck by it, it seems all the more tragic. To help cope with this harsh reality, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who joined together to form WHO Cares and created The Lounge at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). This is a place that allows teenagers to feel like teenagers and immerse in an atmosphere far unlike a hospital’s (program).

The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Teen and Young Adult (TYA@MSK) Program offers special services to MSK’s teen and young adult population.

The Lounge is a space designed especially for this unique age group that was made possible by a $ 1 million donation from Teen Cancer America. The nonprofit organization, co-founded by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who, partners with hospitals throughout the U.S. to develop specialized facilities for teens and young adults with cancer.

Inspired to go beyond art to create a space for healing, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center turned to a new friend of mine, the extraordinary thinker and doer Stephen Burlingham. Stephen, speaking to our foundation’s young global leaders this summer, explained his recent piece “Whisper” featured in the MSK Lounge for Teens and Young Adults:

I wanted to go beyond art. “Whisper,” for me, is hope for the patients, the family and friends of children living with cancer. My work springs directly from envisioning humanity’s cumulative knowledge and belief encapsulated within an ever-expanding membrane that emanates from the Elements themselves.

My work stands for the universal Membrane and involves my search to find the spiritual, the mindful passage, to allow one to break through our restrains and to see what lies beyond our sensory world. To perceive the Intangible – that which is unable to be touched or grasped, that lacks a physical presence.

Stephen is no stranger when it comes with working with children in needs. The grand-grandson of the renowned designer Louis Comfort Tiffany, Stephen was commissioned for designing the award for the Save the Children’s 75th Anniversary Benefit in 2007. Three visionary leaders were honored at that benefit with Save the Children’s Global Humanitarian Awards — former President George H. W. Bush, former President Bill Clinton, and Melinda Gates.

Unlike any other artist I have met, Stephen is charismatic, spiritual, intelligent – and deeply philosophical. If you didn’t know he was an artist, you might think he is a humanitarian.

One of his works, a permanent stone sculpture entitled “The Crossing,” was erected in the ancient port of Bodrum, Turkey, on the Mediterranean. He told me the piece now bears witness to the eternal laws that are constant over time, language and culture – and the great civilizations which unite humanity.

Another of his work in progress, “The Gateway,” is an installation project that explores the frontier between the tangible and the intangible. “Traversing this universal Membrane is at the core of my work,’ he said, “and the search to find the spiritual, the mindful passage, to allow one to break through our restraints and see what lies beyond our sensory world. To perceive the Intangible.”

Cancer can sometimes feel like that, intangible and out of one’s grasp. The artist speaks of his piece as a way to “look through and beyond.” I took this as a nod to those battling cancer. The Lounge at MSK provides an escape for teenagers who want to be able to live their lives as if they are somewhere else other than a hospital.

“I believe it is up to each patient and family member to choose to see and to take from your piece what you intended to offer them,” Stephen told us.

His work “Whisper,” I believe, is aptly named. Whisper surround hospitals. In Stephen’s whispers, we see something else – a different way to speak up. Among the whispers are the intangible possibility that things can get better, and that people may truly heal.

Meera Gandhi, an activist and CEO of The Giving Back Foundation, is a good friend of us both. Meera helped me gain some insight into Stephen’s life and work:

When I walked into Sloan Kettering and got to the lounge, the yellow art piece “Whisper” by Stephen Burlingham reminded me of the sun. I assumed Stephen was thinking of sunlight and energy to heal when he designed that.

The Lounge has great energy and is so comfortable and has the guitar from The Who hanging on the wall. Stephen shared that he had such joy creating the piece and hoped many teens would be healed of cancer and enjoy great downtime in the relaxed lounge created at MSK.

Meera received our foundation’s Humanitarian of the Year Award in 2015.

Jeremy Hu, gallerist and global adviser to our foundation, agrees:

When you step into The Lounge at Sloan Kettering, the first thing you notice is the vibrancy of Stephen’s work brightening up the walls, signaling a hopeful tomorrow, one that is cancer-free. There is such peace in Burlingham’s pieces. The main element blends seamlessly with the world around it. It lifts you up.

A challenge we have as a foundation and young global leadership program is to try to relate to our readers the breadth and scope of those thought leaders and global citizens whom we meet during the course of our activities. Stephen Burlingham is perhaps the most intellectually engaging and challenging individual we have encountered. One piece on his hospital installation does not begin to unravel his myriad mysteries.

2016-09-18-1474224765-2027162-079F186D707A499980668C21052A029F.jpg

With this in mind, we have determined to create a series about his artistic achievements. Stephen’s world revolves around CoAu – the iconic markers of the paradigm shift of Humanity’s Consciousness, The Gateway, the physical portal of the new consciousness, and 0M1.org, a community forming around this new consciousness.

As we sat around our dining table, we discussed with Stephen his vision. In short, the artist sees three current parts: Joining the idea/vision, a shared curiosity in Humanity’s future and the cosmos; Collaborating in the realization of the Gateway; and Bringing together thought leaders and interested parties (people, universities, think tanks, etc.). Our young team seemed anxiously eager to absorb his ideas.

A creative life force such as Stephen Burlingham is difficult to encapsulate and even harder to pigeonhole. Young patients living with cancer who find themselves in The Lounge at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center don’t care – they simply find enormous comfort in his piece “Whisper.”

Our foundation is actively discussing how best we might engage him in the future. Should he be Artist-in-Residence, Humanitarian of the Year, or simply honorary chair of our Global Advisory Board? Whatever role he may one day assume with us, it is clear that Stephen Burlingham is going to change the world.

Snowden Another Great Film by Oliver Stone

Oliver Stone fought as a young man in Vietnam where he experienced the dark side of American society, which he came to chronicle in films ranging from Platoon, JFK, Nixon, Wall Street, the Doors, Born on the Fourth of July, W, and many others.

Snowden is Stone’s latest triumph.

It chronicles the epic story of National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden (played by Joseph-Gordon Levitt) who acted on his conscience in exposing massive and illegal surveillance operations by leaking classified documents to The Guardian newspaper.

The surveillance operations angered Snowden, the film suggests, not only because of their vast scale, but also because they targeted American government allies and were designed for social control purposes rather than for legitimate national security reasons and to uphold American worldwide hegemony.

The film begins by showing the brainy Snowden as a naïve and idealistic CIA recruit in 2006 who believes in the wars waged by the Bush administration in the Middle East. After breaking his leg while training with the Special Forces, an army officer tells him he could “serve his country in many other ways,” which is what he sets out to do.

Snowden’s political education starts when he encounters a jaded CIA computer expert, Hank Forrester (played by Nicholas Cage), who is relegated to tinkering with antique computers because he protested unconstitutional surveillance methods. Forrester tells Snowden about how the system works, namely the role played by lobbyists and a revolving door of politicians and industry executives in keeping the so-called military industrial complex churning.

Snowden though falls under the influence of CIA executive Corbin O’Brien (named fittingly after the protagonist in George Orwell’s 1984) who tells him emphatically that “Americans want security and not freedom.” Snowden begins to experience doubts however after witnessing a colleague carrying out unauthorized surveillance operations targeting the family member of a potential CIA asset in Geneva, which the agency then uses for blackmailing purposes.

Later in Hawaii, Snowden realizes the NSA is monitoring him and his girl-friend, and providing targeting information used in drone strikes that may be killing many innocent people (an officer firing a drone tells he and his colleagues: “you track ’em, we whack ’em”). When ethical questions are raised at a dinner party, Snowden’s boss says he was just doing his job. Snowden responds however that after the first tier Nazi leaders were tried and convicted at Nuremburg, the foot soldiers were next, and the defense of following orders was invalid.

A few days later, Snowden smuggled out a chip filled with classified material disguised in a rubik’s cube, and the rest as they say is history.

Critics of Oliver Stone’s films have long suggested that Stone misleads his viewers by distorting historical events and that he provides a conspiratorial view of American history.

The distinguished historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr., in an essay published in the 2000 book Oliver Stone’s USA, edited by Robert Brent Toplin, argued that JFK and Nixon gave too much support to the notion that cabals of highly placed individuals make the decisions that broadly affect American life. Schlesinger likened Stone’s views to a “paranoid style” in American politics adopted by political fringe groups on the left and right.

Historian Stephen Ambrose in the same volume expressed discomfort with Stone’s reference to the “beast” in the Nixon film; a metaphor for the “darkest organic forces in American Cold War politics: the anticommunist crusade, secret intelligence, the defense industry, organized crime, big business plus the CIA.” Ambrose said this is a “gross simplification of how and by whom the US is run.”

Preliminary reviews of Snowden have been quite critical, with Richard Brody of the liberal New Yorker referring to Stone as “an editorialist” rather than a great political filmmaker like Clint Eastwood.

Stone responded to his critics in Oliver Stone’s USA by noting that men like Ambrose and Schlesinger exhibited undue nostalgia for the past and had trouble confronting the harshness of the present. Stone said that he had great love for his country and that his movies were designed to raise points and ask questions that merit an answer or investigation.

Recent historical developments chronicled in the Snowden film in many ways vindicate Stone’s position. The U.S. national security and secret intelligence and military industrial complex have grown to such gargantuan proportions, building off the Cold War precedent that even staunch conservatives have had to acknowledge the dire consequences.

Few watching the Snowden film would say Stone here has engaged in conspiracy, and many no doubt sympathize with Snowden.

Oliver Stone will be remembered as time passes I am sure as an American original whose movies helped expose the dangerous militarization of American society, political corruption and growth of a form of totalitarianism antithetical to the nation’s founding creed.

Films like Born on the Fourth of July, JFK, and now Snowden, have also spotlighted patriotic men of conscience who risk it all to speak truth to power and fight back against the system, and can in turn be an important source of inspiration.

The 6 Secrets of Self-Control

2016-09-09-1473458162-6578277-TheSixSecretsofSelfControlHP.jpg

What is it about self-control that makes it so difficult to rely on? Self-control is a skill we all possess (honest); yet we tend to give ourselves little credit for it. Self-control is so fleeting for most that when Martin Seligman and his colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania surveyed two million people and asked them to rank order their strengths in 24 different skills, self-control ended up in the very bottom slot.


Watch Tommy Boy Explain His Struggles With Self-Control

When it comes to self-control, it is so easy to focus on our failures that our successes tend to pale in comparison. And why shouldn’t they? Self-control is an effort that’s intended to help achieve a goal. Failing to control yourself is just that–a failure. If you’re trying to avoid digging into that bag of chips after dinner because you want to lose a few pounds and you succeed Monday and Tuesday nights only to succumb to temptation on Wednesday by eating four servings’ worth of the empty calories, your failure outweighs your success. You’ve taken two steps forward and four steps back.

With this success/failure dichotomy in mind, I give you six strategies for self-control. Some are obvious, others counter-intuitive, but all will help you eliminate those pesky failures and ensure your efforts to boost your willpower are successful enough to keep you headed in the right direction for achieving your goals.

Self-Control Secret #1 – Meditate

Meditation actually trains your brain to become a self-control machine. Even simple techniques like mindfulness, which involves taking as little as five minutes a day to focus on nothing more than your breathing and your senses, improves your self-awareness and your brain’s ability to resist destructive impulses. Buddhist monks appear calm and in control for a reason.

Self-Control Secret #2 – Eat

File this one in the counter-intuitive category, especially if you’re having trouble controlling your eating. Your brain burns heavily into your stores of glucose when attempting to exert self-control. If your blood sugar is low, you are far more likely to succumb to destructive impulses. Sugary foods spike your sugar levels quickly and leave you drained and vulnerable shortly thereafter. Eating something that provides a slow burn for your body, such as whole grain rice or meat, will give you a longer window of self-control. So, if you’re having trouble keeping yourself out of the company candy bin when you’re hungry, make sure you eat something else if you want to have a fighting chance.

Self-Control Secret #3 – Exercise

Getting your body moving for as little as 10 minutes releases GABA, a neurotransmitter that makes your brain feel soothed and keeps you in control of your impulses. If you’re having trouble resisting the impulse to walk over to the office next door to let somebody have it, just keep on walking. You should have the impulse under control by the time you get back.

Self-Control Secret #4 – Sleep

When you are tired, your brain cells’ ability to absorb glucose is highly diminished. As I explained in Secret #2, your brain’s ability to control impulses is nil without glucose. What’s worse, without enough sleep you are more likely to crave sugary snacks to compensate for low glucose levels. So, if you’re trying to exert self-control over your eating, getting a good night’s sleep–every night–is one of the best moves you can make.

Self-Control Secret #5 – Ride the Wave

Desire has a strong tendency to ebb and flow like the tide. When the impulse you need to control is strong, waiting out this wave of desire is usually enough to keep yourself in control. The rule of thumb here is to wait at least 10 minutes before succumbing to temptation. You’ll often find that the great wave of desire is now little more than a ripple that you have the power to step right over.

Self-Control Secret #6 – Forgive Yourself

A vicious cycle of failing to control oneself followed by feeling intense self-hatred and disgust is common in attempts at self-control. These emotions typically lead to over-indulging in the offending behavior. When you slip up, it is critical that you forgive yourself and move on. Don’t ignore how the mistake makes you feel; just don’t wallow in it. Instead, shift your attention to what you’re going to do to improve yourself in the future.

Putting These Strategies to Work

The important thing to remember is you have to give these strategies the opportunity to work. This means recognizing the moments where you are struggling with self-control and, rather than giving in to impulse, taking a look at the Six Secrets and giving them a go before you give in.

Foot Drop

What is foot drop?
Foot drop is the inability to raise the front part of the foot due to weakness or paralysis of the tibialis anterior muscle that lifts the foot (Figure 1). A common symptom of foot drop is a high steppage gait, often characterized by raising the thigh up in an exaggerated fashion while walking. When a person with foot drop walks, the foot slaps down onto the floor.

2016-09-15-1473960001-2882617-foot1.PNG

Foot drop usually results from an injury to the peroneal nerve which is susceptible to injury at any point of its course. The peroneal nerve begins from the L4, L5, S1 and S2 nerve roots and joins the tibial nerve to form the sciatic nerve (Figure 2). The sciatic nerve starts in the lower back and runs through the buttock and lower limb.


2016-09-15-1473964839-1700154-foot2.PNG

In the lower thigh, just above the back of the knee, the sciatic nerve divides into two nerves, the tibial and peroneal nerves, which innervate different parts of the lower leg (Figure 3). The common peroneal nerve then travels anterior around the fibular neck, dividing into superficial and deep peroneal nerves. The deep peroneal nerve gives innervation to the tibialis anterior muscle of the lower leg, which is responsible for dorsiflexion of the ankle (Figure 4).

2016-09-15-1473964883-8532324-foot3.PNG

2016-09-15-1473964901-5244603-Foot4.PNG

Conditions Causing Foot Drop (Figure 5):
A herniated disc compressing the L5 nerve root may cause foot drop. Another cause of foot drop can be a lumbosacral plexus injury, pelvic fracture. Foot drop may also be caused by a sciatic nerve injury, like a hip dislocation. The common peroneal division of the sciatic nerve is commonly injured during fracture dislocation injuries involving the hip. An injury to the knee, such as a knee dislocation may also cause foot drop. In the event of a knee dislocation, it is important to check for common peroneal nerve and popliteal artery injury. In established compartment syndrome, foot drop is a late finding. Irreversible muscle and nerve ischemia occurs in patients if fasciotomy is not performed. Fasciotomy should be done early. Four hours of ischemia may be tolerated but by eight hours, the damage is often irreversible.

2016-09-15-1473964936-7620194-foot5.PNG

Treatment of Peroneal Nerve Injury/Foot Drop:
If a disc herniation in the low back is impinging on the nerve and causing symptoms of foot drop, then the herniated disc should be treated or removed. EMG and nerve studies should be done for the patient. Recovery may take one year to 18 months. The big toe will be the last to recover. If recovery is not achieved, explore the nerve for repair, graft or tendon transfer.
