Bill Maher: Donald Trump Stole His RNC Speech From A ‘Saw’ Movie

Bill Maher says Melania wasn’t the only Trump plagiarizing on the stump at the Republican National Convention.

The “Real Time” host joked that her reality TV star turned GOP presidential candidate husband also stole lines for his own address — but from the “Saw” horror movie franchise.

Did you see Donald Trump’s speech?” Maher asked his audience Friday night. “If that speech was any darker it would have been shot by the police.”

The comedian said the speech’s content ― which saw Trump stoking fear over, among others, undocumented immigrants and terrorists actually made him “nostalgic for the light-hearted remarks of Rudy Giuliani.”

“He (Trump) used the word ‘violence’ a dozen times, the word ‘murder’ a half-dozen times — and that was just the part about Ted Cruz,” Maher added, before mocking Trump’s messiah complex.

Check it out in the clip above.

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

WATCH: Refocus (Getting Back on Track)

There are a lot of things going on that are demanding our focus – and take us away from where we can be most powerful and do the most good for ourselves and others. I hope this will help.

If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the “Tap Out Your Fears” series — which explains the basics of EFT — click here.

As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing uncomfortable feelings and enhancing good ones. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

For a picture of the tapping points — and more info on EFT — click here.

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I state that, before tapping along, folks must take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at www.TapWithBrad.com.

For EFT with kids, please visit: www.TheWizardsWish.com.

The Psychological Reason Conservatives Band Together Faster Than Liberals

When Donald Trump picked the Mulan-hating, Titanic-loving gubernatorial goober Mike Pence to be his vice-presidential pick, he said that it was about “party unity.” And indeed, as the flopping of the Never Trump movement at the Republican National Convention shows, the GOP has indeed rallied around Trump — why else would Ted Cruz get booed offstage for withholding his endorsement?

It’s a fascinating display of what political psychologists have come to call “shared reality theory.” Similar to how some people need certainty more than others, researchers have found that people are more or less motivated to get their beliefs reconfirmed by the people around them. Sharing reality functions as “a sort of social glue,” University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign psychologist Chadly Stern and Stanford University researcher Robb Willer write in a new column for the Washington Post, “without which we would be unable to communicate, work in teams and achieve shared goals.” When you have a strong sense of shared reality, it helps you to come to think that your “beliefs reflect objective reality” and that they’re shared by your friends and family.

As you may surmise by the way fans of right-wing commentator Rush Limbaugh refer to themselves as “dittoheads,” studies indicate that conservative people have a higher need for “shared reality.” Liberals, on the other hand, tend toward the opposite — rather than wanting to share the same reality with their kin, they’re more motivated to be unique, agreeing with statements like “in group activities, I’m somewhat of a nonconformist,” while conservatives are more likely to agree that it’s important to them to “see the world in a similar way” as others do. And in matters both political (abortion) and nonpolitical (coffee) conservatives are more likely to overestimate how much their beliefs match those of their fellow conservatives, while liberals underestimate how much their beliefs are like other liberals. And guess what: According to Stern’s research, people who report that they think their peers share their beliefs with them are more likely to vote.

Therein lies the difficulty of organizing liberals, which Stern and Willer compare to the “proverbial herding of cats” in their Post column. The liberal impulse to nonconformity may be what drives social progress — but it also makes it harder for the party to unify, the Democratic Party, to be precise. It’s a fascinating irony: Liberals might be theoretically more collectivist, pushing for policy that benefits the public good, but their individualism makes it harder to build a coalition. Just ask your nearest Bernie bro.

“Remain in Your Calling”

“Remain in Your Calling”


Remain in Your Calling explores the way the Apostle Paul negotiates and transforms existing social identities of the Corinthian Christ-followers in order to extend his gentile mission. Building on the findings of Tucker’s first monograph, You Belong to Christ: Paul and the Formation of Social Identity in 1 Corinthians 1-4, this work expands the focus to the rest of 1 Corinthians. The study addresses the way Paul forms Christ-movement identity and the kind of identity that emerges from his kinship formation. It examines the way previous Jewish and gentile social identities continue but are also transformed in Christ. It then provides case studies from 1 Corinthians that show the way social-scientific criticism and ancient source material provide insights concerning Paul’s formational goals. The first looks at the way Roman water practices and patronage influence baptismal practices in Corinth. The next uncovers the challenges associated with the transformation of the Roman household when it functions as sacred space within the ekklesia. The final study investigates the way Paul uses apocalyptic discourse to recontextualize the Corinthians’ identity in order to remind them that God, rather than the Roman Empire, is in control of history.

HE’S BACK! Jon Stewart Returns With A Message For Fox News And GOP ‘Conservatives’

Jon Stewart is back.

The former “Daily Show” host came out of retirement to join his old colleague, Stephen Colbert, on CBS’ “Late Show.”

He didn’t waste any time getting back to work, ripping into Fox News for now praising Donald Trump for some of the very same traits they condemned in Barack Obama. 

And he had a very direct message for the “conservatives” who want to “take the country back.”

He said:

“You feel that you’re this country’s rightful owners. There’s only one problem with that: This country isn’t yours. You don’t own it. It never was. There is no ‘real America.’ 

You don’t own it. You don’t own patriotism, you don’t own Christianity, you sure as hell don’t own respect for the bravery and sacrifice of military, police and firefighters. Trust me.

I saw a lot of people on the convention floor in Cleveland with their ‘Blue Lives Matter’ rhetoric who either remained silent or actively fought against the 9/11 First Responders Bill reauthorization. I see you, and I see your…” 

At that point, the audio cut out ― but you don’t have to be an expert lipreader to make out what Stewart said next. 

See the full segment in the clip above.

My Best Friend Is 20 Years Older Than Me, Here’s What I’ve Learned

My best friend is a Filipino with kids as old as me.

It also doesn’t help that she’s female and I’m male.

Now pay attention. I want you to notice what you think about this. I want you to notice what your immediate assumptions are. Do you believe me? Are you not sure? Do you think I must be lying?

Most of the time society assumes the worst.

They think we MUST be in a relationship. We MUST be hiding it from absolutely everybody. But no matter how much dirt my friends or her friends try to dig out, they still come up empty-handed every time.

That’s because there’s nothing happening.

You know what we do? We do things that normal friends would. We sit and talk. We laugh about work. We confide and trust one another. We go out. The chemistry that everyone else sees is so easily mistaken for love, but that’s just because we know each other so well.

I can’t tell you how this happened. The stars aligned and for some reason we had the perfect amount of compatibility. But if you think about it you’ll see why we’re compatible. I’m 23 and I’m very much open to everything. I want to learn from the experience of everyone.

What better way to learn about life than to talk to someone twice my age from another country? And guess what? I’ve learned more than you can ever imagine. It’s the lessons that I’ve learned from this wonderful person that have shaped my decisions for the past year.

She told me one thing, and that was to stay single and enjoy life while I can. She got married when she was 21 and wished she could’ve done things over. I’m currently out in San Francisco, writing in my blog and travelling the United States. I owe it all to her.

The bigger point is that society is too often focused on the wrong things–like age, gender, race, and background. It’s for this reason that our growth as human beings becomes stunted. We only hang out with those our age who want to party and fall in love on a whim. Why not become friends with someone older? Why not learn about the implications of a divorce and marrying early and having children?

There’s a whole wealth of experience that we’re missing out on. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Many of my friends rushed to get married before they got to travel outside of their own state. I know from my experience with my best friend that this might not always be the best plan of action.

I learned so much from her.

I learned that being 40 doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun like you’re 21. I learned that being a single parent demands a departure from how you acted before a divorce. I learned patience. I learned that there’s a point where friends become family. I learned that Filipino people have the best hospitality.

My decision to commit social suicide by being seen with a woman twice my age in public paid dividends for me that I’ll continue to reap for years to come.

Friendships can be weird, but I’m convinced that it’s the most beautiful thing human beings are capable of creating. Don’t limit yourself because of what people may think. I say, go for it.

Donald Trump Flunks Actual Sanity Test Given By Keith Olbermann

Time for some armchair psychiatry. 

Sports and political commentator Keith Olbermann used the 20 items on the Hare Psychopathy Checklist ― an actual clinical tool used to help diagnose psychopathy ― to assess Donald Trump. 

The results? 

Well, let’s just say the GOP presidential candidate probably won’t be bragging about his YUGE numbers on this one.  

Read Olbermann’s column in Vanity Fair, or watch his analysis of the test in the clip above, which was posted online by the magazine on Thursday.

(h/t Raw Story)

 

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.

Cleveland, Day Three — Cruz Refuses!

Heading into tonight’s speechifying, I was convinced that Ted Cruz would emerge afterwards as the heir apparent to the Republican nomination in 2020, should Donald Trump fail to win in November. Now, I’m not so sure.

But before we get to the big story of the night, let’s start at the beginning. Today, the realization finally dawned in the Trump camp that they had to do something to stop the bleeding over the plagiarism storyline. A staffer was summarily dragged out who offered to fall on her own sword, and magnanimous Donald pardoned her, saying “everyone makes mistakes.” So they likely successfully prevented the story from continuing for another day. But it would have been overshadowed anyway (obviously) by the end of the night.

But again, I’m getting ahead of myself. John Kasich also stirred the pot a bit today, saying he was courted for Trump’s veep and that, furthermore, they offered him control over both the domestic and foreign agenda, leaving Trump to… um, play golf? The Trump camp immediately denied the story, which only served to highlight the Trump/Kasich feud even further than Kasich’s refusal to set foot in the arena already had.

Tonight, the scheduling finally approached professionalism, I have to say (as an overall comment). There was a slow build throughout the night from all the speakers (and their placement), the minor folks in the first hour, the more prominent in the second hour, and (excepting Callista Gingrich’s bizarre appearance), the third and primetime hour was nothing but the A-list — with no minor-leaguers left hanging at the end of the night after the excitement was over and the crowd had gone home. So there was that, at the very least. To put this another way, tonight’s trainwreck did not resemble that of the previous two nights of scheduling idiocy — it was for an entirely different reason.

Things got off to a lively start with Rick Scott, who immediately pulled the “Radical Islamic Terrorism” card out and plunked it down on the table. This would prove so popular that I was eventually just using “RIT!” as an abbreviation in my notes. Another snap abbreviation coinage was “LHU” for all the “Lock her up!” chanting throughout the night, I should mention (which started during Rick Scott’s speech and continued from that point forward, intermittently).

Laura Ingraham took the stage next, and totally fired the crowd up. I guess the GOP doesn’t hate all journalists, eh? She heaped up a big helping of (blonde-highlighted) red meat, and the crowd just ate it up. She even got in a “skinny jeans/man-bun” joke to show how hip (or “anti-hip” perhaps) she is. She was folksy, and even though her speech was fairly long, the crowd stayed with her the entire time. She did take one pointed shot across Ted Cruz’s bow (without actually naming him), which he later ignored, but the most notable thing about her performance was the fact that she seemed to be immensely enjoying herself. This is notable because so few speakers have radiated this impression during the whole convention (the runner-up would probably be the ultimate fighting guy, who also looked like he was having a ball onstage).

Some snoozer of a businessman (a Trump business partner, no less) had the unenviable task of following this speech up, who was followed by a chirpy and perky female attorney general from Florida (who at one point reacted to the crowd’s chanting with “Lock her up — I love that!”). Is this the same woman who refused to prosecute Trump for fraud after he donated $ 25,000 to her campaign? At this point, I am too weary to fact-check this, so in the spirit of all that is Trump I’m just going to assert it and see where the chips land.

Hey, I’ve been sitting through three solid days of this, so you’ll have to forgive me if I’m getting a bit loopy. We then got the first of many little “movie time” vignettes, which introduced a female astronaut — historical, since today is “moonday,” when Neil Armstrong did his thing (and muffed his big line) back in 1969. This to me was ironic in the extreme, seeing as how Republicans are always the ones slashing NASA’s budget in Congress. I mean, all that space/pioneering/leadership stuff doesn’t exactly come cheap, and wasn’t it George W. Bush who killed the space shuttle program, after all? Like I said, ironic.

We next got Michelle Van Etten, who absolutely took the prize for unintended hilarity (at least from the Democrats watching) for telling her life story as an extended metaphor (she’s a businesswoman) of putting on a circus as a kid (her first business venture), and not realizing how it would sound at the end when she said Donald Trump is the “one man who can be ringmaster” of the Washington circus. This is too easy a shot for me to take, so I leave this one for others to poke fun at. Trump? Circus? Ringmaster? Man, the jokes just write themselves….

We then got the Latino-outreach portion of the show, with a Kentucky state senator who is obviously seen as a rising star in his party (Barack Obama’s big step into the spotlight was a speech at a national convention when he was just a state senator, I hasten to remind folks). He had an awesome delivery style and cadence, I had to admit — a very good speaker after the mostly-unimpressive speakers who preceded him. At the end of his speech, we saw something rather unexpected — a GOP crowd actually cheering someone for speaking Spanish to the crowd. This election cycle had Republican presidential candidates calling for “English-only on the campaign trail and debates,” in case anyone’s forgotten. But whatever — Ralph Alvarado did an excellent job both stylistically and substantially, with a short-and-snappy list of why everyone should think Obama is a giant failure. Not exactly my cup of tea (personally), but it was well presented, I have to admit. Although there was one moment where he said the election is not over “left or right, but up or down” which did bring to mind that Simpsons Kang and Kodos bit (“Forwards, not backwards! Upwards not downwards! And always twirling, twirling for freedom!”).

This brought us to the second hour. This began with a black minister who (not surprisingly) was one of the best at getting the crowd worked up of the entire night. Darrell Scott proved without a shadow of a doubt that Republicans are OK with an angry black guy, as long as he’s a Republican angry black guy (fun fact: out of 2,400+ GOP delegates, a grand total of 18 are black). Snarkiness aside, the guy was very good at his trade — his trade being provoking an emotional response from a crowd, of course. He ended spectacularly, with a riff on the Declaration of Independence that other speakers attempted throughout the night (but which he absolutely nailed).

We then got a oilman whom I mostly ignored, as I grilled myself a cheese sandwich, to bolster my flagging strength. His basic message was the old Palinesque “drill, baby, drill” to which he added something along the lines of “when an American oil, rig dies, the terrorists win” or something (my notes got kinda greasy at this point, for some reason). Then we got another mini-movie about how great Trump was.

Scott Walker then took the stage — one in a long line of “failed challengers to Donald Trump” throughout the whole convention, in fact. Walker tried to be angry and rousing, which he had a limited degree of success doing, but you could still see why he was one of the first to drop out of the race. His “America! Deserves! Better!” wasn’t anywhere near as good as Chris Christie’s “guilty or not guilty” call-and-response, but the crowd still seemed to enjoy it. Walker enthusiastically endorsed Trump early on in his speech, but the most bizarre thing (to me) was hearing a GOP crowd actually cheer the phrase “Radical! Islamic! Terrorism!” — which is almost Orwellian in terms of the optics (either seeing a GOP crowd appear to cheer on the concept of RIT, or, alternatively, a slice of a Big Brother “Two Minutes Hate” session).

Then it was movie time again, with another Trump employee praising his boss. Oh, sure, your boss is great and all, but what else are you going to say on national television? Sheesh. I missed some of the movie flipping channels, but it was followed by Lynn Patton, a black Trump employee (the same one from the video? my notes don’t say…) who stunned me by actually sympathetically using the term “LGBTQ” not just once but twice during her speech — something I never thought I’d see at a Republican convention. She also had the most emotional and human moment of the night at the end of her speech, when she choked up talking about her father, so kudos for honest emotion (something rarely seen in national conventions).

This was the end of the undercard, essentially. From this point on, we got the headliners. This started with another movie moment from Li’l Marco Rubio, who was straining as hard as he could to appear serious and somber and full of gravitas. He didn’t noticeably succeed, even with the full-on “weighty moment” soundtrack behind him. He got in one good line at the end, as he fully endorsed Trump: “The time for fighting each other is over.”

This thought was immediately proven far too optimistic, as Ted Cruz then took the stage. I have to say, before I even get started, that I feel more than a little bit sorry for Mike Pence. Here is his big night being introduced on the national stage, and he’s going wind up being a footnote (at best) in tomorrow’s headlines because of what happened during Ted Cruz’s speech. Through no fault of his own, Pence was overshadowed by the deep and angry divisions which still remain in the Republican Party.

PBS had reported hours earlier that Ted Cruz might just not actually endorse Trump in his speech tonight, so it didn’t come as a total shock to wonks. And the one silver lining in the entire fiasco for Republicans is that it didn’t happen at the top of the primetime hour (as was the case for the Clint Eastwood/chair dialogue, for comparison).

Being forewarned, I was paying very close attention to the language Cruz chose. He started off by “congratulating Donald Trump for winning the primaries,” but then edged and danced around actually endorsing him or saying he was going to vote for Trump. He then launched a pretty stock Ted Cruz speech (complete with his own version of the preacher’s cadence), which could have been any stump speech he read while he was running. He riffed on the badness of Obama (um, Obama wants to “give away” the internet to Russia and China?), took some shots at Hillary (of course), and all the rest of his usual schtick.

Two points before we get to where it all went off the rails are worth mentioning. Cruz got one interesting bit of wordplay off with “Freedom matters” (his take, obviously, on “Black Lives Matter” and how it’s morphed in the GOP to “Blue lives matter), which had to get a few points for cleverness. He seemed to be endorsing a candidate named “Freedom” for president for his entire speech, as a matter of fact.

Cruz even gave a big nod to Trump towards the end, by being (to my memory at least) the only Republican speaker thus far to use the “Build the wall” phrase in his speech. And he also (my ears are especially tuned to this particular dog-whistle) subtly wrapped his approval for Colorado to legalize marijuana in some Tenth Amendment language, just hinting at a longer statement he repeatedly made during his campaign (about how: “I don’t agree with Colorado’s legalization law and I wouldn’t vote for it in Texas, but I think the states should be given the right to decide for themselves”). Like I said, you had to have the right dog’s ears (so to speak) to even hear that one, but it’s the closest any Republican has ever come to saying anything remotely pleasant about marijuana in any convention ever, so it’s progress of a sort, to me.

This is where Cruz hit a turn on the railroad tracks posted at 45 mph, while fully roaring along at over 100. After a quick rah-rah mention of “RIT” just for good measure, and with the RNC official feed occasionally futzing out, Cruz headed into the final portion of his speech. He begged voters “don’t stay home in November,” but then only told them they were free to “vote their conscience” rather than endorsing (or even mentioning by name) Donald Trump.

The crowd’s ears were indeed attuned to this particular dog whistle. After the leak earlier than he wasn’t going to be endorsing, people in the arena were listening just as close as I was for what language he was using. And the whole “vote your conscience” thing has meant (this particular year) perhaps voting for Gary Johnson or anyone other than Trump. So the message was loud and clear to the delegates. And some of them were not amused, to put it mildly.

Immediately after he uttered the “vote your conscience” line, a vocal portion of the crowd started registering its disapproval. Bigly, as Donald Trump might have said. Now, I’m just going by my own ears and it’s hard to hear chants through the microphones, but it sounded to me like it started with a simple chant of “Trump! Trump! Trump!” — possibly (if Cruz was correct) led by the New York delegation (Cruz tried to laugh it off with a nod to New York’s free speech rights or some such). But this quickly got louder and angrier, and morphed into a chant of “Keep your pledge!” — referring to the pledge all the Republican presidential candidates signed (when they all thought they’d beat Trump) to ultimately support the eventual nominee. Cruz tried to brush the crowd’s booing off again and again, but they came back with an even-louder chant of “En-dorse Trump!” which was accompanied by a whole lot of booing and general noisy disapproval. At one point, the crowd was almost louder than Cruz, and Cruz had the benefit of amplification on his side. But the crowd had the benefit of thousands of seriously angry delegates on their side, and they almost shouted him off the platform.

To be blunt, things got very ugly, very fast. Later, I learned that during all this, security hustled Heidi Cruz (his wife) out of the arena, as threatening catcalls were being made (some chanting “Goldman Sachs” at her, since she was a high-ranking executive for the company) towards her from the crowd. I have no way to confirm that one, as I haven’t seen video of it yet, I should add.

The crowd got downright unruly, for a painful amount of time. There’s just no other way to say it. Republicans loudly booing a Republican, at their own convention, for accepting an almost-primetime speaking slot without offering an endorsement to the party’s nominee. The most cringeworthy moment had to have been Cruz reading (off the TelePrompTer, as he was soldiering on through the end of his prepared remarks) the obviously untrue line “We will unite this country” as a large portion of his party’s delegates were trying to boo him off the stage. Chaos reigned, in other words. Lyin’ Ted went out with a bang, folks.

To top it all off, Donald Trump himself made his entrance during the end of the Cruz trainwreck, seating himself in his personal box seats with his family while boos echoed the rafters. You can bet you’ll see that clip played over and over again, that’s for sure.

All of this took place right before the broadcast network coverage was about to start — the only silver lining for those who care about the image the Republican Party is portraying to America. But even so, it was all the commentators could talk about for the rest of the hour. We got a “son and daughter” little movie moment with Ivanka and Eric Trump, but none of the networks carried it, because they were still picking up their collective jaw off the floor.

The entire primetime hour’s speeches was a complete afterthought, although to be fair it shouldn’t have been. The schedulers had finally gotten things right, and we got a speech from Eric Trump, followed by a short introduction of her husband by Callista Gingrich. Newt’s speech was capped off by vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence introducing himself to America. None of which will be noticed much in tomorrow’s press reports, that’s for sure.

Eric Trump did his best, but he’s obviously not as polished as his bigger brother Donald Junior (who sat stony-faced through his brother’s speech, hardly clapping at all). He tried his own “My father is running for you” refrain, but the crowd was still in a stirred-up mood and barely noticed.

Newt’s third wife gave a speech just about as plastic as her skin, but to her credit she was one of the first speakers to notice that tonight was supposed to be Mike Pence’s big night. She (thankfully) only spoke for a couple of minutes, as an introduction to Newt himself.

The only really notable thing about Newt’s speech (he did the usual terrorists/Hillary-bashing/Obama-bashing/war-war-war thing many other speakers did for the rest of his time) happened at the beginning, when he ad-libbed a bit of spin, because he knew how badly the images of Cruz’s speech were going to be in the media. He “mansplained” (or maybe “Newtsplained”?) how Ted Cruz had really actually endorsed Donald Trump after all! Hey, who are you going to believe, Newt or your lyin’ ears? It was a smart, timely, and incredibly savvy attempt at media manipulation, but my guess is it isn’t going to do a bit of good. The damage had already been done.

But I really did feel sorry for Mike Pence. His biggest political moment in the sun — his big introduction to the national spotlight — and it’s going to be an afterthought, at best. Nobody’s going to be saying much about his speech tomorrow. Which is a shame, in a way, because he really did kind of knock it out of the park. Pence was seen by many (myself included) as being a rather tame and boring pick for Trump. “Ho-hum” was the most common reaction, in fact. But tonight, he proved he can be an attack dog (if necessary), he can be a dynamic speaker, and he can hold an audience rapt with attention — through dialing up the emotional levels and dialing it back down again, masterfully. I mean, he does kind of remind me (physically) of Ted Knight, but he is a competent politician, even I have to admit that after watching him speak. He actually did unify the crowd, drawing them back together, and got them stomping their feet and wildly cheering by the end of his speech. I have to say I have underestimated Pence, after watching this performance.

Pence stayed away from his trademark social issues, which all vice presidents are expected to do when their views disagree with the presidential candidates’. He got one or two good lines off of his own (speaking of the Trump family, he shared a down-home saying: “You can’t fake good kids,” which I thought was pretty effective). His “Secretary of the Status Quo” title for Hillary was also a crowd-pleaser. But by the end of the speech (which went on too long — its only minor flaw), the crowd started spontaneously chanting “We like Mike!” which is rather evocative of Eisenhower’s famous political slogan. He built to a very strong and rousing finish, and I sure won’t be underestimating his political skills from now on.

But, like I say, I do feel kind of sorry for him. On the biggest night of his life — the biggest speech he’s ever given — he’s going to be a mere footnote or afterthought. Because tonight will go down in political history for Ted Cruz, his speech, his refusal to endorse Trump, and the crowd’s reaction. People are already comparing it to the 1980 Democratic convention (Ted Kennedy vs. Jimmy Carter) and the 1976 Republican convention (Ronald Reagan vs. Gerald Ford). That’s some pretty dysfunctional company to be included in (you’ll note that both parties lost in November, in those particular years).

I’m not immune myself. Even though I thought Pence had a great night, I’m still left thinking only about Ted Cruz’s future in the Republican Party. Will he be the automatic frontrunner in 2020 if Trump loses? Before tonight, I would have easily believed that. Now, I’m not so sure. If Trump loses, can Ted say “I was right” — or will he be seen as a traitor to party unity forever by the rank and file? Insults like this usually cut pretty deep — people remember these things, in other words — and the only question is who will be insulted. If it’s just “Johnny-come-lately” Trump supporters who are annoyed with the Republican establishment, that’s one thing; but if it is “rank and file Republicans,” the political career of Ted Cruz might be all but over. Time will tell.

Tonight’s Republican National Convention trainwreck wasn’t the result of incompetent scheduling, unlike the first two days. Instead, it was due to insufficient vetting. Why was Cruz given a prominent speaking slot without being forced to publicly endorse Donald Trump? Why wasn’t he told “Once you endorse Trump, we’ll give you a juicy time slot,” leaving the choice entirely up to him? By assuring him the slot without having to give a solid (and public) commitment, the Trump team set themselves up for this fiasco. But it’s my bet that nobody’s going to get fired for this disastrous decision, because that’s not what the Trump team does.

Stop The Violence And Hate: 5 Things You Can Do Now

2016-07-20-1469048933-7840592-sNEIGHBORHOODsmall.jpg

I am sure everyone reading this can agree on one thing — the violence and hate needs to stop, and it needs to stop now. I am talking about the daily violence and hatred that is going on around the world. The fire of violence is consuming us, and it seems to be a raging fire. The flames are being fanned every day, on TV, in the news, on social media, on talk radio, at the dinner tables, in the offices down the street.

The violence is committed in the name of justice, in the name of an ideology, in the name of enforcement, for revenge or to right a wrong. I am peaceful man and I will confess it hurts my heart to see such death and hated. We have so much innocent blood being shed for… what?

As novelist and humanitarian Wendall Berry once said, “Violence breeds violence. Acts of violence committed in justice or in affirmation of rights or in defense of peace do not end violence. They prepare and justify its continuation.”

So what can you do to stop it? You are just one person right? What can one person do? I think there are simple things we can all do to help stop it.

1. Start with you. As the old song said: “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.” If there is to be peace, then you need to start with you by not supporting, condoning, endorsing violence in any way. I see messages on social media that say, “Well I am glad they got justice — they deserved it!” They are endorsing the murder of another human being for justice. This is not justice, it just murder. So even if you don’t commit violence yourself, don’t be the one who feeds the beast in the form of encouragement. Don’t support this kind of behavior anywhere. Make a daily commitment (not just lip service) to being kind and loving to everyone you meet and interact with. Show others in the world that kindness comes on all colors shapes and sizes. It is not going to be easy — nothing worthwhile ever is — and you are going to have days when you are tired and fail. But the next day, get dust yourself off and try again.

2. Start with your family. Teach your children to be kind, to be aware of other people feelings, to give back and to take care of others. Teach them empathy and caring and make it one of your family values. The way to change a culture is first and foremost at home first. Teach them to respect all people or all races creeds and colors. As a parent, show them through your actions how to be a kind soul. Don’t allow them to talk bad about others or to express hate. Let them know that is not how kind people act and that it is not acceptable behavior. As Nelson Mandela once said, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for loves comes more naturally to the human heart than the opposite.”

3. Start with your neighborhood. Do you know your neighbors? Reach out to them and get to know them. Be bold and knock on their door and say hi. Tell them as neighbors you need to stick together. Have a block party and get to know one another. Let them know you have their back. Take initiative and form a community association. Talk to each other. Have a community of connection and kindness. Our nation is a nation, but it is really made up of one neighborhood, and many neighborhoods make up a town, and many towns make up a state. Many states create a nation. You can’t change a nation but you can change your little pocket of the world, by creating and spreading peace and kindness in your neighborhood.

4. Start to volunteer. There are lots or people in the world that need care and help. When someone volunteers their time and energy to help someone else — hearts are healed and hatred dissipates. It’s hard to hate when you see people cares about you. I have done volunteer work with children, and I have seen the transformation power of what love can do to heal.

5. Start to listen. We need to stop being so polarized — no one wants to listen to anyone who doesn’t agree with them. In Washington DC, politicians just don’t listen to anyone on the other side of the aisle. We must start listening to other people with an open mind and trying to understand their world, their perspective. As Tennessee Williams once said, “I think hate is a feeling that can only exist where there is no understanding.”

I am asking you today in reading this to commit to being a bright and shining well of peace, good will and kindness. Let the cool and deep water of that well extinguish the flames of violence and hate.

An Apology Expert Analyzes The Explanation For Melania Trump’s Plagiarism

Speechwriter Meredith McIver’s mea culpa for the plagiarism in Melania Trump’s Republican National Convention speech is a genuine statement of contrition that is likely to be accepted, says an expert on apologies.

It has almost all the essential elements an apology needs to increase its likelihood of being embraced, and appears to be written from the heart and not under instruction by the Trump campaign, according to Roy Lewicki, a professor emeritus of management and human resources at the Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business who specializes in trust development and trust repair.

However, when viewed in the light of the Trump campaign’s initial reaction to the news that Melania Trump had delivered lines that were previously spoken by Michelle Obama during the 2008 Democratic convention, Lewicki isn’t quite sure what to make of the wider significance of McIver’s statement. Its release is puzzling, to say the least, and presents a fuzzy message on just how trustworthy the Trump campaign is.

“It’s surprising that this is one of the few times in the campaign that someone has owned up to a mistake or an error, and I would be hard pressed to know exactly why, in her case, this was allowed to sort of come out,” Lewicki said. “Particularly since the campaign and the candidate, in the previous 36 hours, were doing anything they could do to dismiss it or deny it or claim it was a trivial issue.”

But first, let’s dig into the apology itself

According to Lewicki’s research on the six essential elements of a sincere and effective apology, McIver hits it out of the park. Those six elements, in order of importance, are:

  1. Acknowledgement of responsibility

  2. Offer of repair

  3. Expression of regret

  4. Explanation of what went wrong

  5. Declaration of repentance

  6. Request for forgiveness

The more of these elements an apology contains, the more likely a recipient is to accept it, according to Lewicki’s recent study published in April

Here is McIver’s statement in full, re-typed from the PDF released on the Trump campaign website Wednesday morning. We’ve annotated it to point out the statements that fulfill the apology elements on Lewicki’s list.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:  

My name is Meredith McIver and I’m an in-house staff writer at the Trump Organization. I am also a longtime friend and admirer of the Trump family. 

In working with Melania Trump on her recent First Lady Speech, we discussed many people who inspired her and messages she wanted to share with the American people. A person she has always liked is Michelle Obama. Over the phone, she read me some passages from Mrs. Obama’s speech as examples. I wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech. I did not check Mrs. Obama’s speeches [4: Explanation of what went wrong]. This was my mistake [1: Acknowledgment of responsibility], and I feel terrible for the chaos I have caused Melania and the Trumps, as well as to Mrs. Obama. No harm was meant [3: Expression of regret].

Yesterday, I offered my resignation to Mr. Trump and the Trump family [6: Request for forgiveness, or what Lewicki describes as a “backhanded request”], but they rejected it. Mr. Trump told me that people make innocent mistakes and that we learn and grow from these experiences [5: Declaration of repentance].

I asked to put out this statement because I did not like seeing the way this was distracting from Mr. Trump’s historic campaign for president and Melania’s beautiful message and presentation. 

I apologize for the confusion and hysteria my mistake has caused. Today, more than ever, I am honored to work for such a great family. I personally admire the way Mr. Trump has handled this situation and I am grateful for his understanding. 

Sincerely,

[Signature]

Meredith McIver

It’s important to note that Element 4, the explanation of what went wrong, can further affect the way an apology lands because it could either be an honest mistake or a violation of integrity that reflects on a person’s character. In McIver’s case, she explains it was an honest mistake. 

You’ll also see that Element 2 is missing ― that’s because there really is no way to repair the fact that Melania Trump delivered a partially plagiarized speech to an audience of 23 million TV viewers, Lewicki explained. But barring that, the statement is well-crafted and appears to convey genuine remorse for the mistake.

“This is a case of a good apology that’s sort of surprising because it stands out in such contrast to the tactics of the broader campaign,” said Lewicki. 

Indeed, when one considers McIver’s statement within the wider context of the Trump campaign’s response to accusations that Melania’s speech had been at least partially cribbed from Michelle Obama’s, the intended effect of her apology becomes less certain.

The campaign had spent the day after the speech bizarrely denying the plagiarism had taken place (despite the one-in-87 billion chance those words had assembled themselves randomly in about the same order Obama had delivered them), blaming Hillary Clinton for the media attention and even angrily protesting that the plagiarism accusations amounted to an assertion that Obama invented the English language

On top of it all, the candidate himself appeared to revel in the continued media coverage of his wife’s speech, which makes the point of McIver’s apology (to regain trust and start the forgiveness process) suspect, according to Lewicki.

“That’s been a consistent process in the whole Trump campaign to keep the media focus on them by whatever means they need to,” Lewicki concluded. “Which, from my point of view, makes the credibility of the candidate and the campaign sort of questionable.”

Fake Melania Trump Offers Hilarious Defense Of RNC Speech On ‘Late Show With Stephen Colbert’

Did the 2016 election season just find its Tina Fey?

Actress/singer Laura Benanti nailed the part of Melania Trump on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” on Tuesday night, offering a comically inept defense against accusations of plagiarism. 

In making her point, she then plagiarized everyone from Charles Dickens to Dr. Seuss to a McDonald’s commercial. 

Check it out in the clip above, and see if you don’t start ba-da-ba-ba lovin’ it.

How To Collaborate Like Todd Snyder, Rising King Of American Menswear

He’s the once and future king of American menswear. But unless you’re obsessed with Instagram’s growing brotherhood of style bloggers who wear his clothes, you might not know Todd Snyder’s name today ― a fact that he’s OK with (for now) and he’ll be the first to admit that he’s not an American household name … yet.

But after designing outerwear at Polo Ralph Lauren, working as the director of menswear at The Gap and then as senior vice president of menswear at J.Crew (where he launched the Ludlow suit and its NYC-destination menswear shop The Liquor Store), he left J.Crew to launch his eponymous label. Snyder has been “The Next Big Thing” for so long that it feels like Snyder (a Dutch surname that, as it happens, means “tailor”) is finally getting the respect, attention and success that he deserves.

In 2012, Snyder, who cites military, Savile Row and classic American style as big inspiration, was GQ’s Best New Designer in America. A year later, he was a finalist for the Council of Fashion Designers of America/Vogue Fashion Fund. Last year, American Eagle announced (to some surprise) that it had acquired the Todd Snyder label, as well as Snyder’s lesser-known brand, Tailgate, for $ 11 million.

He told HuffPost that he plans to open a Todd Snyder shop in Manhattan (his first brick and mortar in the US) that will feature, among other things, a barber shop, tailor shop and bar, in the hopes of bringing the success he’s found in his Japanese locations to his home base in the U.S.

A big reason for all of this success, though slow-simmering, is due to his ability to recognize partnerships where others would see competition. Snyder has designed product with brands that share both aesthetics and customers: PF Flyers, Champion, Superior bags, Moscot and Cole Haan. His most recent collaboration with Timex sold out within its first day.

We spoke with Snyder in his Manhattan studio to learn about why he collaborates so much when he could just do for himself what other brands are doing, to learn his secrets. 

Associate Yourself With Those Who Inspire You.

“What attracted me to Timex was the heritage,” Snyder said. “When I think of iconic American brands, it’s Levis, Champion, Timex, Redwing. Those are the things that, to me are like OK, that says they’ve stood the test of time. They’re still doing today what they were doing when they started, which is making really great quality design.”

Your Competitor Can Become Your Mentor.

“It’s also the ability to sit across from [a brand like] Timex, where within the entire company, there’s a lot of really smart people. They’re talking about marketing and different ways of getting the word out and I’m like, how do you do that? They deal with mega companies, the Targets of the world. Everybody. To be able to sit across from people in that company who have this knowledge is, for me, so exciting because then I learn from that.”

Respect Your Partner’s History. It’s Why You Want To Work With Them.

“To be able to work with companies like those is a dream come true, but my approach is to go in with respect to the heritage and what they’ve built,” Snyder said. “I don’t want to change it, I just want to add a little twist to it and really pay tribute to it, as opposed to starting over. Because to me, that’s not what it’s about ― it’s about taking something they’ve done and adding slight twists to it so it kind of makes it my own, but at the same time doesn’t destroy what they’ve started. And having that appreciation goes a long way so they can trust me. It’s a trust factor.”

Know That Ultimately, What You Make Together Is More Meaningful Than The Sum Of Its Parts.

I don’t think I could ever make a watch better than Timex, and if I did I don’t think it would have as much meaning as something like this,” Snyder said. “Because that’s what people appreciate; you fall in love with the design and you might not know that it was made originally in 1970 but you start to read the backstory on the watch and how it was started and the story about how it was designed, and you fall in love with that story as well. And I think that’s what guys really appreciate. There’s more substance to it rather than just a piece of metal that’s on your wrist.”

Florida Zika Case Could Be First Local Transmission In U.S.

(Reuters) – Florida health officials said on Tuesday they are investigating a case of Zika virus infection that does not appear to have stemmed from travel to another region with an outbreak.

The statement from the Florida Department of Health did not specify whether the Zika case was believed to have been transmitted via mosquito bite, sexual contact or other means.

The department said the case was reported in Miami-Dade County and that it is working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on an epidemiological study.

The department also reiterated guidance to Florida residents on protecting themselves from mosquitoes that may carry the virus.

“Zika prevention kits and repellant will be available for pickup … and distributed in the area under investigation,” the health department said in a statement. “Mosquito control has already conducted reduction and prevention activities in the area of investigation.”

Zika, which can cause a rare birth defect and other neurological conditions, has spread rapidly through the Americas. A small number of cases of Zika transmitted between sexual partners have also been documented.

There has yet to be a case of local transmission by mosquitoes in the continental United States, though more than 1,300 people in the country have reported infections after traveling to a Zika outbreak area.

U.S. officials have predicted local outbreaks to begin as the weather warms, particularly in southern states such as Florida and Texas.

John Oliver Announces His Endorsements For This Election Season

John Oliver just announced his endorsements for the upcoming election. But it’s more of a what, rather than a who, that he’s backing.

After running through the public figures who’ve offered support to presumptive presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in recent days, the “Last Week Tonight” host said he was ready for his own pronouncement.

But not for president of course,” he said in a web exclusive clip posted online Sunday. “Because of my accent, the only elected officials I can endorse are prime ministers, viceroys and magical railway controllers.”

Oliver went on to explain that he was fully behind a quirky list of concepts ― including animals wearing human clothing, interspecies friendships and the 1999 movie “Pushing Tin.”

Check it out in the clip above.

Understanding: Wants Vs. Needs

2016-07-15-1468611389-7532558-shutterstock_449670994.jpg

Wants vs Needs

How often do we create mountains out of molehills? We should start by defining our needs and our wants. What qualifies as a need? What is a want?

A need is something you have to do. A want is something you would like to do. I often confuse them. There are days when I take my needs for granted and sacrifice them at the expense of my wants.

Let me start with some examples:

My medications
My bedtime
Work projects
Parenting time with my kids
Paying my bills
Weeding my property
Exercising
Following my food plan

… The list goes on.

I used to think all of these were needs. And as you can see by the list, they don’t all seem reasonable to complete in a day. As a result, I would improperly prioritize those items I felt would yield the largest gain or results.

I focused on growing my business, because if my business was successful, everything else would fall into order behind it (or so I thought). But I didn’t realize that neglecting myself and my actual needs was a serious issue. I believed I was too busy to get the rest of the list done.

Since embracing mindful thinking, I have been able to accomplish everything on the list, and more. I realized that the more time I found for myself, the more time I had for everyone else.

Waking up this morning, I immediately centered myself with gratitude, spirituality and mindfulness. This week, I took my medications daily and made sure that my bedtime was consistent. Everything else today is a by-product of those good behaviors and habits. I naturally had time and energy to follow my food plan. (I even found time to walk a few miles while working and ride my exercise bike today.)

After that, I was able to spend time with my kids: watching their shows before and after dinner, reading to them before they went to sleep, and hearing something good from each of them regarding their days.

The one thing I didn’t have time for today was beating myself up or playing the victim. Was I perfect in my quest today? No. My inboxes aren’t empty. Yet. They are smaller than they were yesterday and I found acceptance about not requiring them to be empty each and every day.

The reality is that an empty inbox is a want – not a need. Realizing this allowed me to focus more of my time on my needs and less on my wants. An amazing thing happened…I found the time I needed for my wants because my needs were being taken care of at the exact same time.

Don’t let perfect ruin good! And don’t let good ruin doing something!

I used to let the desire for perfection paralyze me and prevent me from moving forward. The perception that I could not work on my wants until all my needs were perfectly satisfied was crippling; the only thing I ever did perfectly was nothing.

Since then, I have learned that the only ‘right’ way to do something is to get moving. In meditation, gratitude, and spiritual practice something is always better than nothing!

Get Your Family Off The Couch This Summer With These 5 Simple Tips

Summer is the perfect time for the entire family to refresh their focus on healthy habits. The kids are out of school, camps are back in session, and even the coldest, snowiest parts of the country are rebuilding relationships with the sun. But with all the freedom that summer brings, it can be easy to fall into a routine of sitting on couches, watching television and overeating.

The best defense against letting idle relaxation become your summer routine? Structure. Incorporating a mix of season-savoring activities, adventures and changes of scenery into your schedule can help you and your family stay healthy and active all summer long. Need a head start? Here are five ideas I love, coupled with important advice from like-minded friends of the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation.

1. Jump in the water.
family sprinkler
Whether it’s in a lake, a pool or even with a hose in the yard, cooling down with a splash of H20 is an American pastime that’s fun for all ages. Plus, swimming is a great aerobic exercise that will help with your aches and pains. But remember to be safe, too, the water safety advocacy group the ZAC Foundation advises. An adult should always supervise a child in or around water. If you’re in a group, appoint designated “water watchers” to keep an eye on swimmers in 15-minute intervals with no distractions.

2. Hike a trail.
Looking for an activity that can last you either an hour or an entire day? Hit the local trails! The Rails-to-Trails Conservancy recommends families pack a bag of essentials, like liquids, snacks, sunscreen, maybe even a ball to toss around, and lace up some comfortable shoes. Want to speed things up a bit? Strap on some rollerblades or hop on a bike (wear a helmet!) and experience the outdoors with a breeze in your face. Great exercise and great fun. Win, win!

3. Go outside.
family basketball
The possibilities are endless when you take a step outside with an open mind. Set up a neighborhood game of kickball. Draw on the sidewalk with chalk. Set up an obstacle course. Go for a run. There is no better way to enjoy summer than by playing outside. But, as the Road Runners Club of America says, remember to be smart in the heat. If you become dizzy or nauseated, have the chills or cease to sweat, find shade and drink fluids. But if you keep your safety in mind throughout the day, you’ll be in for hours of fun!

4. Create a family-wide fitness challenge.
Set a physical activity goal for each member of your family. Whether you’re doing five situps or 10 pushups a day, create a chart that holds everyone accountable. To make the competition more “interesting,” the childhood obesity educators at The OrganWise Guys recommend that each family member select a reward (non-food!) ahead of time, and the family can then motivate and compete to reach individual goals by the end of the month. A little friendly competition never hurt anyone!

5. Share family meals.
outdoor meal
At the cornerstone of family time, there is usually a tasty meal. Eating together as a family has been shown time and again to offer a variety of health benefits. And, according to Healthy Dining Finder, it doesn’t have to be fancy, it doesn’t have to be dinner and it doesn’t have to be at the dining room table! Whatever shape it takes for your family, the act of sharing a meal together is the priority.

What are some of your favorite summer activities?

HWCF is a broad-based, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to help reduce obesity, especially childhood obesity, by encouraging positive and permanent lifestyle changes among school-aged children and their families.

Trump Plans To Steal The Spotlight Back With Cabinet Announcements

WASHINGTON ― Frustrated at the lack of enthusiasm for his vice presidential pick Mike Pence, Donald Trump is now telling those close to him that he wants a do-over of sorts, which he aims to get by rolling out the names of potential cabinet members, a source who spoke to Trump told The Huffington Post. 

Trump was disappointed with the rollout of Pence, and the reaction to him, on several levels. He was first piqued that the news leaked before he’d gotten around to telling the runners-up, Newt Gingrich and Chris Christie, about his choice. He then had second thoughts, postponed the announcement and spent Thursday night trying to find a way to back out of his choice, according to multiple news reports and the source close to Trump. 

Trump sees Pence as a politically safe but unexciting choice, the source said. When non-politicians fantasize about running for president, they delight in imagining the unorthodox, thrilling running mate they might choose. For Trump to have ended up paired with such a standard pol, after a year of violating every campaign norm in the book, must be a major letdown. 

Multiple sources say that Trump wants to name Christie, the Republican governor of New Jersey, as his attorney general, although knowing Trump, he could change his mind at any moment. Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law who plays a major role in the campaign, fought against Christie as a VP pick, as reported this week by HuffPost blogger Laura Goldman and later corroborated elsewhere.

Retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, whom Trump at one point floated as a potential VP, will surely be on the short list for defense secretary, unless of course Kid Rock makes himself available.

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

The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs. They also possess no eligibility requirements, no forms to fill out, or expiration date as well .One card will take care of a whole family. Also note that the ACRX cards will come to your organization already pre-activated .The cards are good at over 50k stores from Walgreen, Wal mart, Eckerd”s, Kmart, Kroger, Publix, and many more. Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072.

At A Loss: Last Words

2016-07-14-1468522361-8395380-BolemanHerring812016Image1.jpg

The Pioneer Plaque

“It’s a kindness that the mind can go where it wishes.” ― Ovid, “The Poems of Exile: Tristia and the Black Sea Letters”

“Language is the only homeland.” ― Czesław Miłosz

“These are all I have. I do not have the wide, bright beacon of some solid old lighthouse, guiding ships safely home, past the jagged rocks. I only have these little glimmers that flicker and then go out.” ― Rebecca Wells, “Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood”

The Silent Languages

It is Day Two of one of my headaches, which usually last for three. It is morning, and I am in bed, my head wrapped in a black-and-white Yasser Arafat scarf, one forearm pressed hard against my skull and the other resting on my husband’s chest.

It is on this latter arm that the jazz musician with whom I live is “playing,” with the fingers of one hand, a tune. A silent tune, as my skinny forearm is no trumpet.

Dean knows that, while the pain in my left temple is relentless, language–of any sort–will tempt me out of the hole down which pain thrusts me. Eventually, I will have to know . . . what tune he is playing. Eventually, the language which he speaks so fluently, and hears constantly within his cranium, and which I can only hear (and then, imperfectly), when a band performs it, will charm me (as the flute, the cobra).

“What are you playing?” I ask, eventually.

He smiles and, in his endearing falsetto, pipes a bar or two. “‘Spring is Here,'” he interjects.

“By?”

“Rodgers and Hart. Stan Kenton.”

“So, I have an entire orchestra playing here? On my arm?”

The fingers are onto something else, however. “Now, what?”

“‘Yesterdays.’ By Kern and Harbach. Stan Kenton again, though.”

Not skipping a beat, he begins ‘Stompin’ At The Savoy.’

Lying here, in almost total silence, one of us speaking through the fingers of a hand, the other listening, clumsily, through the skin of a forearm, we are something like the members of two early, isolated tribes of homo sapiens, upon first contact. I will never have time enough to learn the language-of-jazz in which my spouse has been steeped since early childhood. And, by this point in our marriage, I know he will never learn the proper use of “went” and “gone”: his participles will remain, for this grammarian, blood-curdling, lo, unto the grave, whichever of us arrives there first.

“I’ve never went to . . .” says Dean.

“Gone to!” says Elizabeth. “Gone!*&%”

When one of us is in pain, in the little co-mingled tribe that is this marriage, the silent languages predominate: those comprising simply sounds, as opposed to words; those expressed through touch.

Throughout my husband’s surgery of a month ago, and my own headaches, we have spoken, for the most part, without a lot of words. In fact, because I myself am so beset and beleaguered by words, living with a musician, who communicates primarily and happily and by choice via sounds alone, most of those sounds mediated by instruments (and, so, at a remove of one or two from the human breath or the human hand, or both), I have found being with Dean a relief, a refuge.

In our house, there is much music, but most of it comes without lyrics.

Which is not to say we do not communicate profoundly. We communicate, with all our various languages, signs, and signals, across most silences and distances. But we speak best, usually, without words.

What, I wonder, did Homo sapiens and Homo neanderthalensis “say,” upon first encountering one another, over 100,000 years ago, somewhere in the Middle East? What was communicated in that first gaze?

In the way that we “use” language, and considering the languages we have chosen to learn well, even over the short course of our shared time on the planet, my husband and I could be members of different species. Here, we have an instance of Homo trumpetensis taking up residence with Homo comma-oxfordensis
.
No wonder one of us seems always to have a headache (she said, smiling).

Lost in Translation: “Saudade” & “Hiraeth”

We are losing human languages, year by year, as we lose the last native speakers of each.

Languages go extinct with their speakers, unless studied, recorded, and preserved for prosperity, and many, many human languages (I think, just, of all the extinct aboriginal languages of Australia) were gone before . . . we knew it. In this new century, with the death of their last-standing native speakers, we have lost Klallam, Linvonian, the Cromarty dialect of Scots, and Pazeh, along with at least 14 other distinct tongues.

Tongues: given my husband’s (and Koko the gorilla’s]) fluent fingers, tongues and breath are not essential for communication, but most languages may still be called tongues.

Language has ever been based on breath. And tongues. Both human.

And, with every year, and every year of globalization, the tongues we speak decline in number. Soon, we will be left with what, which? Chinese? Spanish? English? Hindi? And, then? Just Chinese?

I grieve the loss of all tongues for, in and through each, we have expressed what is almost impossible to express in others.

There is one, solitary Portuguese word, saudade, for example, which originated in Galician, and for which English (and perhaps all other languages) has no twin, no cognate (or “blood relative”).

Saudade (as per Wikipedia) “describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing might never return. A stronger form of saudade might be felt towards people and things whose whereabouts are unknown, such as a lost lover, or a family member who has gone missing, moved away, separated, or died. Saudade was once described as ‘the love that remains’ after someone is gone.

Saudade is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again. It can be described as an emptiness, like someone (e.g., one’s children, parents, sibling, grandparents, friends, pets) or something (e.g., places, things one used to do in childhood, or other activities performed in the past) that should be there in a particular moment but is missing, and the individual feels this absence. It brings sad and happy feelings all together, sadness for missing and happiness for having experienced the feeling.

“In Portuguese, Tenho saudades tuas(European Portuguese) or Tenho saudades de você (Brazilian Portuguese), translates as ‘I have saudade of you,’ meaning ‘I miss you,’ but carries a much stronger tone. In fact, one can have saudade of someone whom one is with, but have some feeling of loss towards the past or the future.

“In Brazil, the Day of Saudade is officially celebrated on 30 January.”

I, myself, “have saudade of” the lost languages of Klallam, Linvonian, the Cromarty dialect of Scots, and Pazeh, along with the other 14 tongues which have gone extinct since the year 2000. I have saudade, as well, of all those lost languages whose names I will never even know.

For me, in a sense, every day is The Day of Saudade.

And then, there is the Welsh word hiraeth. Wikipedia: “The University of Wales, Lampeter, attempts to define it as homesickness tinged with grief or sadness over the lost or departed. It is a mix of longing, yearning, nostalgia, wistfulness, or an earnest desire for the Wales of the past.

“Oxford and Merriam-Webster define hiraeth as: (noun) ‘a homesickness for a home you cannot return to, or that never was.’

If this sounds familiar: “Hiraeth bears considerable similarities with the Portuguese concept of saudade (a key theme in Fado music), Brazilian Portuguese banzo (more related to homesickness), Turkish gurbet, Galician morriña, Romanian dor.”

So, whatever language we speak, or no longer speak, we Homo sapiens, trumpetensis, and/or comma-oxfordensis, have coined a plethora of words with which to express À la recherche du temps perdu.

Extinction is a concept with which we have long been acquainted, but with which we are never, ever, comfortable.


Breath & Dragon’s Breath

Recently, in my ongoing, Oedipal, and Conradian quest to nail down just when and through what mechanism runaway climate change will effect the Sixth Extinction, a planetary cataclysm resembling the great Permian die-off, in which fully 83 percent of Earth’s genera went extinct, I came across a long, peer-reviewed article by marine biologist Dr. Ronald L. Shimek, former chair of the Biology Department at the University of Alaska, Anchorage, assistant director of the Bamfield Marine Science Centre on Vancouver Island, Canada, and a “CORAL Magazine” senior editor. (The version of the essay which I cite here, and which is available online is this one: http://www.reef2rainforest.com/2016/04/22/dragon-watch/)

Dr. Shimek, while researching coral reef extinctions, one of his areas of expertise, stumbled upon the research of Dr. Natalia E. Shakhova, “a Russian oceanographer and geologist who has been studying the permafrost methane distribution throughout the offshore region of the Laptev Sea known as the Eastern Siberian Arctic Shelf (or ESAS in scientific circles) and the adjacent onshore areas.”

Shakhova’s research has been in another neck of our shared woods, entirely, from that of Shimek. Her focus is the release of methane into the atmosphere, and the probability that the next great planetary extinction will be caused by a catastrophic release of the gas also known as “Dragon’s Breath.”

Quoting from Shimek’s piece: “[Shakhova] estimates the [methane] clathrate deposits in the ESAS to be between hundreds and thousands of gigatons. This is not easy to visualize, but the total mass of carbon in living plants and animals on Earth has been estimated at 500 gigatons, making these buried deposits of solidified methane unimaginably huge in the true sense of the word. Some observers have dubbed the collective, buried power of these deposits the ‘Methane Dragon.'”

Shimek continues: “In 2010, Shakhova and her co-workers estimated that a catastrophic methane release in excess of 50 gigatons (a minuscule percentage of what is in that area) is possible at any time. She said, and continues to assert, that such a catastrophic release could take place over a period of one to ten years. The fear is not the potential explosive effect–terrifying caribou in the wild, barren north–but rather the massive infusion of enormous clouds of potent greenhouse gas into Earth’s atmosphere. As a result of her work, the question that needs to be asked is this: ‘Are her estimates of catastrophic release reasonable and possible? And, if they are, what difference would that make?'”

Shimek concludes his essay (and what can I really do but quote him at length?): “When and how things might unfold is profoundly uncertain, but the trigger point for the short-term catastrophic methane release postulated by Dr. Shakhova could be a temperature rise as low as an additional 1.5°C or as high as an additional 10°C. These are not the rantings of fearmongers, but scenarios described by respected Arctic oceanographers. The 50-gigaton decadal methane pulse scenario posited by Shakhova, Semiletov, and Alekseev, who are probably the leading experts on Arctic methane and methane ices, is considered plausible by scientists at the UK Meteorology Office, as well as multiple scientific reviews, including one written by more than 20 Arctic specialists. Current Arctic atmospheric methane concentrations are unprecedented, but the best minds believe that if 50 Gt were added to the atmosphere, conditions would become very bad, very fast. It would be, some experts fear, the beginning of ‘runaway global warming’ that humans would be powerless to stop.

“Given an effective meltdown of methane clathrates in the Arctic, climate expert Dr. Malcolm Light has estimated global temperatures of around 50°C above averages between the years 2040 and 2050. In summer, if the normal average had been 30°C (for example, where I live in Montana), the post-methane belch temperature would rise to 80°C or 176°F.

“While the timing is unclear, the consequences can be predicted with some certainty. They include: Complete melting of polar ice caps; global flooding; Disruption of global ocean currents and gyres; demise of oceanic fisheries; Crop and food production failures; Spread of disease and parasites; Collapse of power grids and transportation systems; Mass human mortality in heat and cold waves; Catastrophic breakdowns in political, economic, and societal stability.”

Shimek concludes: “There is no easy way to write these words: Should such an event occur, it is certain that the coral reefs I set out to research would have no chance of survival. More to the point, most of us would perish.”

While We Have Breath

Other scientists believe all of us will perish, and the event will occur before the end of the current century. Day by day, I review the science, and it seems, to me, incontrovertible. The Sixth Extinction, the one brought about by mankind, will occur in the lifetime of our grandchildren, and it will snuff out every last creature “with breath,” and most without, on our shared planet.

If I, with my small knowledge of science, know this truth to be self-evident, how long will it take my peers in “The Reading West” to surpass me in my researches? I would like to think that many, many of us will come “online” with the science rapidly, and turn global attention to what appears to be just ahead for us all.

In thinking out loud about extinction here, I have begun with the extinction of languages but, perhaps just after my own sojourn on the planet ends, and the small extinction my death will signify, language itself will become extinct along with any being who parsed, or will ever parse, language.

Based upon and an expression of the consciousness of Homo sapiens (and Homo sapiens‘ forebears), language–the concept, the thing itself–will disappear with us, as though it, and we, never were.

Floating through space on the wings of Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecrafts were, are, the so-called Pioneer plaques, humankind’s early-1970s “messages in a bottle” to the universe. If and when they are “received,” and if ever they are “understood” by other beings–a possibility so remote as to defy all probability–perhaps someone, somewhere, in some dimension, may know that we lived and breathed: but the likelihood of our still being here then appears nil.

The enormity of that realization is now being pondered by relatively few homo sapiens, but will affect each and every one of us, whether we choose to inform ourselves, or not.

And many of us–the current ponderers–believe the time has long since passed when we might have avoided the iceberg, or the dragon’s breath. The time now is for pondering alone. For facing the music as we can.

Readers still with me here may want to explore the writings of Dr. Guy McPherson and, perhaps, join me on Facebook in the (closed) group, Near Term Human Extinction Support Group.

We who speak and breathe and touch and sing now face the end of humankind’s tenure on Earth, and we will together be choosing how we face it; not if, or when.

While I have breath, and while I may be heard, I will continue saying, “Choose. Choose how we go forward. Choose together.”

We have no other choices left us, we who coined the words saudade and hiraeth.

How To Sleep When Horrific News Becomes The Norm

Last night more than 260 civilians were killed in violent clashes with military forces in Istanbul.

The night before, at least 84 people lost their lives when a truck deliberately zigzagged through crowds of people celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France.

Two weeks ago Alton Sterling and Philando Castile were shot and killed by police and five police officers were gunned down by a sniper. The previous month, 49 people were killed by a shooter at an iconic gay nightclub in Orlando.

And scores of other shootingsbombings and tragedies have happened in the days and hours in between.

We heard the stories. We saw the pictures. We watched terror happen on video.

Mothersfatherssonsdaughtersloverscolleaguesfriends and the man from down the street who “would have gave you the shirt off his back” lost their lives.

For victims’ loved ones, the grief is immeasurable. For African-Americans, the pain of watching police brutality against black people comes with a toll of its own. For people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, the hurt of an attack against their own community is agonizing.

People intimately affected by these tragedies experience emotions that others of us cannot fathom. 

But even for those without a personal connection to these terrible events, sadness and pain are still a reality.

We feel pain even if we’re not involved

If you see, hear or even read about something traumatic ― even if you’re not directly involved ― you can still have an emotional response, Robert Hawkins, an associate professor at the Silver School of Social Work at New York University, told The Huffington Post.

“This is trauma that doesn’t necessarily happen to you or you didn’t necessarily experience, but you become affected by it,” he said. 

It can be worse if you identify with those affected, explained David Kaplan, chief professional officer at the American Counseling Association.

“If you relate to the person who was attacked in any way, you’re going to grieve because it’s also part of you,” Kaplan told HuffPost previously. 

But that grief, while normal and expected, can lead to stress and sleeplessness. 

“With the frequency of shootings and terror attacks there is a sense of anxiety that’s building in people,” Anita Gadhia-Smith, a psychologist in Washington, D.C., told The New York Times ― “a sense of vulnerability and powerlessness.”

Traumatic life events are among the biggest causes of anxiety and depression, research suggests. But experts say taking steps to care for yourself ― including taking care of your sleep ― is what helps you cope best with that stress.

Stress causes chemical changes in our bodies

Not sleeping is the body’s natural response after hearing about and watching disturbing events, according to sleep psychologist Jason Ong of Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago.

When the body releases stress hormones, the emotion-processing areas of the brain stay on, suppressing some of its sleep-promoting systems, he said. Even though your body knows you’re tired, your brain knows something is wrong and you need to deal with it.

The bottom line: research shows that when we’re stressed, the chemical and biological changes in our bodies can interfere with our sleep. 

That stress and sleeplessness is important to address early, experts say, before it leads to long-term cycles of mental health problems and chronic insomnias (which can grow from cycles of short-term insomnias).

“Anxiety and insomnia can feed each other and become a cycle,” the National Sleep Foundation says.

Here are seven self-care tips that can help you deal with worries and sleep better:

1. Talk about what’s bothering you

A big part of dealing with a tragedy is expressing your emotions, said Steve Orma, a clinical psychologist and author of Stop Worrying and Go to Sleep: How to Put Insomnia to Bed for Good. “If you’re sad, allow yourself to cry. If you’re anxious and afraid, say ‘I’m anxious and afraid,’” he previously told HuffPost.  

If you’re sad, allow yourself to cry. If you’re anxious and afraid, say ‘I’m anxious and afraid.’
Steve Orma, clinical psychologist

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration recommends that you talk to family and friends about how you’re feeling.

2. Do things that help you relax

Relaxation and meditation techniques help ease stress and can be especially helpful before bed, said Phyllis Zee, director of the Sleep Disorders Center at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

3. Don’t change your sleep routines

Losing sleep at night might make that snooze button more tempting. But picking up poor sleep habits just makes it harder for you to fall asleep at night, Orma said.

If you’re not a regular nap-taker, don’t start. Avoid sleeping in later than usual. And don’t suddenly start taking sleep medications because you may grow dependent on them, he said.

4. Turn off the news at night

Leave a news-free buffer of at least 30 to 45 minutes before you try to sleep to allow yourself to relax, Ong said. Limiting your exposure to media coverage of violence will help you relax and sleep better.

5. Practice good sleep hygiene 

It might sound obvious, but it’s worth noting that the times that you’re more likely to have trouble sleeping are when it’s most important to do the things that are good for sleep, Zee said. Exercise during the day, but not too close to bedtime. Get some sun during the day, but avoid bright lighter later at night (which can make it harder for you to fall asleep and actually make you sleep worse).

6. Give yourself a break

You need to tell yourself it’s ok to have a few nights of poor sleep, Orma said. The more you beat yourself up for not sleeping well and the more upset you get about it, the more anxious you can become about not sleeping and fuel the sleepless cycle. 

Talk to yourself like you were talking to your best friend or a child… in a very nurturing, supportive or positive way.
Steve Orma, clinical psychologist

“Talk to yourself like you were talking to your best friend or a child. You would talk in a very nurturing, supportive or positive way,” Orma told HuffPost previously. “You wouldn’t freak them out.”

7. Get the help you need

If coping on your own or with your family members is not enough, talk to a psychologist or licensed medical health professional, recommends the American Psychological Association.

While there is no one timeline that fits everyone for how long it should take for a trauma to subside, the APA says you might benefit from seeking professional help if you feel overwhelmed by sadness or helplessness, if the problem doesn’t seem to be getting better after talking with family and friends or if you find it difficult to maintain your everyday routine.

Bill Maher Reveals ’25 Things You Don’t Know’ About Donald Trump

Bill Maher hilariously imagined the kind of things that Donald Trump would say for US Weekly magazine’s “25 Things You Don’t Know” article on Friday.

The “Real Time With Bill Maher” host followed up on previous segments, in which he spoofed the replies of Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz, to poke fun at the presumptive GOP presidential candidate.

In the interest of “equal time” ― after presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton did actually feature in the magazine ― the comedian unleashed a series of scathing one-liners on The Donald, including a zinger about birther Trump not actually believing Barack Obama was born in Kenya “because I thought the name of the country was Kanye.”

Check out the clip above to find out what else was included in the list.

Below you can see how Maher spoofed Bernie Sanders:

And here he is imagining how Texas’ Republican senator Ted Cruz would reply: 

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

My Love Letter To You

2016-07-15-1468620026-5807673-1400415_10154064214148711_917411793151883215_o.jpg

Thank you for the love letter. Thank you for the lengthy text message you wrote me from a space of total vulnerability. You hit send hoping for the best as your heart rested anxiously on your sleeve awaiting my text back. Thank you for the crumpled up piece of paper that you ran to give me on the beach, leaving your lifeguard tower abandoned for a split second so as to not miss the chance to ask me out. Thank you for the ride home from yoga. I know it took a lot of guts to ask me on a date just a breath before I closed the car door shut. Your cheeks were bright red as you grasped the steering wheel. But you did it, you faced your fear and made the ask.

I may have turned you down but I didn’t ignore you and I was polite, gracious, and compassionate in my response. I realize that it’s not what you were hoping to hear but I thanked you. I thanked for your sincerity and I meant it when I said that I was humbled by the effort. I see how you show up for love and it’s the same I see in me. Believe me when I say that I know how you feel.

There was the time that I went to the other side of the country to surprise you at your concert, palms sweaty in the back of the venue as I awaited the imminent moment that I’d say, “Hi! I came to see you because I care, I’ve missed you and I really like you.” Remember when I sent you that tiny box with a gemstone in it to protect you on your travels? Or what about when I left you a flower under your windshield wiper?

I’m the not-so-secret admirer just like you.

Whenever my romantic actions result in a “turn down” I don’t let it get me down. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be bold and tear down any walls of fear that existed around being rejected. I know I did the right thing by stepping forward and diving into it.
Disappointment can last a minute but regret can last a lifetime.

When I receive your old-school love letter, your authentic compliment in line at Whole Foods, your poem and your nervous ask, know that I see and understand you. I may not say “yes” but I’ll tell you thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. It’s easy to hide behind technology as we explore our hearts that are seeking to connect but It’s not easy to show up in person. If we desire something or someone, it’s our actions that will propel us to a result. Some of the most treasured words to me are those spoken by Mahatma Gandhi,

“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”

Thank you for the love letter, the art you made me, the authentic compliment, and for asking a stranger to dinner. I hope that you’ll receive this love letter back to you:

Dear Fellow Romantic,

Please keep showing up for life like you’ve been. Don’t let a “no” or even silence jade you. It’s you who sees the rose and it’s you who gets to smell her enchanting aroma. With eyes wide open continue to see, feel and express your deep experience of the world because that will inspire others to dive into their fears instead of letting fear block destiny. The more you show up for life in full expression of your hopes and dreams, the more that life will become your dream come true. It’s the romantics that see the glass half full. So please, beautiful soul, never become jaded. Always write love letters and always be able to receive them with grace, compassion, and a warm thank you.

With Love,
Alicia

The Kind Flexitarian

2016-07-16-1468631710-5276425-1280x720Mv0.jpg

The term “flexitarian” has been coined to describe someone who eats a primarily whole food, plant-based diet, but also sneaks in a big of meat every now and again. Celebrity cookbook author and chef, Mark Bittman, uses this term, and has recently moved away from a meat-centric diet. His new schtick is that he’s strictly vegan all day long, and in the evening he eats whatever he wants. I find this a little odd from a health perspective because if you’re going to toss a big grass-fed steak down your gullet, you’re much better off eating it at lunch time when your body has the rest of the day to digest it/work it off. But moving on from the Mark Bittman (who I love), I’m seeing flexitarians cropping up everywhere here in LA – almost as many as the Paleo crowd. And both groups of “health conscious” eaters are eating meat – in the case of Paleo’s, a LOT of meat. However, are they really “conscious”?

I personally choose not to eat animal flesh. I totally used to. Actually, I include a bunch of meat recipes in my second book (The Gorgeously Green Diet 2009), and do a deep dive into the benefits of truly grass-fed (as opposed to grass-finished) meat. But over the past 5 years I’ve changed. I’ve realized that I don’t need to eat animal flesh to be healthy, and that in many ways I am healthier, stronger, and more energetic without. I’ve also become a way more “conscious” eater in that I really think long and hard about how every mouthful is produced, and in the case of animals, I just couldn’t deny that fact that animal welfare doesn’t get taken into consideration 99.9% of the time (even when it’s implied that it does). I don’t call myself a vegan, because it’s a label (not a big fan of labels), and I do (very occasionally) eat a little fish.

I am totally NON-JUDGEMENTAL of people who enjoy eating meat, so if you are one of them, please don’t stop reading. My entire family are meat-eaters, and so I’ve learned to live and let live. I’m also not opposed to handling or cooking meat for those who must eat it – like my 15 year-old daughter who says she will NEVER not eat meat. It’s kind of the reverse of the many teens who, much to their parent’s consternation, suddenly go vegan. Since I’m a total health nut, my daughter delights in seeing my reaction to her tucking into a box of Fruity Pebbles (not the Whole Foods healthy version either).

But my reason for writing this post about a kind flexitarian is because I was invited to a private screening of the recently released film, At The Fork. It’s a beautifully crafted documentary about exactly how animals are raised for human consumption in America. It is non-judgmental, sensitive, and deep – really DEEP. The filmmaker/director John Papola is a meat-eater, and his wife, Lisa, is not. The film opens with John’s family tearing into huge racks of beef ribs, hot off the grill – an annual family tradition. His wife loads her plate with veggies. Husband and wife make clear their individual stances on meat-eating, and off they go to explore how our meat is produced.

I brought my meat-eating (only about once a week if that, cos I’m hard on his case), husband to the screening. After the film we stayed to participate in the panel, where John Mackey, the CEO of Whole Foods Market (who was involved in the film), sat with the director and producers to answer questions. We then went out for a fantastic vegan meal!!!

So, what was my main takeaway? The film made me cry a number of times. They feature a lot of pigs. I love pigs, and because I was raised around them, I know that they are highly intelligent. The film also made me laugh – there were some beautiful and very funny moments. Unlike so many of the meat-bashing documentaries out there (designed to turn everyone in vegans overnight), this film doesn’t bash anyone over the head. The director John, is brazenly honest, and openly discusses his struggle about forgetting the suffering he might have just witnessed at an appalling factory farm, once a few days have gone by – and especially when faced with the smell of a delicious burger or steak on the grill. His wife is devastated by the fact that he seems not to have the same lasting sense of compassion as she does – and this conflict runs throughout the film. I like that it’s not resolved either. This makes the film more appealing to a way larger audience, which is the intention. No point preaching to the choir, right?

I love the fact that Temple Grandin is in the movie throughout. She’s been a huge advocate of designing compassionate slaughterhouses – an oxymoron I KNOW, but one that she explains in great detail. If the animals are going to be killed, at least don’t put them into abject terror on their way. I think that was the most upsetting part of the film: seeing how terrified the animals were as they were separated from their herd and shoved into crowded trucks headed for the slaughterhouse. Incidentally, the director doesn’t show any animals actually being slaughtered in the movie – a wise decision because we stay watching, rather than turn away. This is not a horror movie!

The panel was very interesting. Here’s something that I didn’t know about John Mackey: He used to eat meat (and clearly sells it in his markets). But, he is now vegan. In an interview in Men’s Journal, he explains: “I became a vegan in 2003, after a woman interrupted the Whole Foods annual meeting to tell us how bad ducks were treated. We had a big argument, but then we started an email correspondence and she challenged me to learn more. That summer I probably read a dozen books on animal welfare. What shocked me the most was the phenomenon of factory farming — animals endure terrible lives of abuse and suffering — and it’s hidden away. After reading the books, I knew too much to keep eating meat. Remember The Matrix? Take the blue pill or the red pill? I didn’t want to go back to sleep.”

But he also acknowledges that only 1% of the population are vegan, so to run a viable business on the scale of Whole Foods Market, he had to continue selling meat. To this end, he has spearheaded the 5-Step Animal Welfare Standards label. He explained to us that not only does this allow customers to really understand how the animals they are buying were treated, but it also encourages animal producers to get kinder and cleaner. They can all charge top dollar for a Step 5+, so they are starting to make big changes.

This brings me to my final thought in this discourse. If you want to be a kinder flexitarian, and eat/buy meat that is good quality, and from an animal who hasn’t suffered for its entire life, you will have to pay more. Organic, humanely-reared meat is very expensive. I see this as a positive because Americans eat way too much cheap meat. This kind of mass meat consumption is linked to all the number one killer diseases, and inflicts untold suffering on the animals involved – a big LOSS for all involved. I think it’s time to open our eyes. At The Fork certainly helps pull back the curtain on the unpalatable truth. I highly recommend you try to see it. If it’s not playing near you, they will help you organize a showing for your community, school, church or neighborhood.

And, finally, why not join the their 21-day challenge. All you need do is sign up with your email, and they will send you a daily plant-based/higher welfare recipe from all kinds of celebrity chefs, as well as shopping guides, articles, and more. You can also like the At The Fork Facebook page.

I also encourage you to try some of the plethora of plant-based recipes on my blog.

Americans Don’t Like Obamacare But Don’t Trust Trump To Fix It

WASHINGTON ― Voters trust Hillary Clinton and other Democrats more than Donald Trump and Republicans when it comes to health care ― even though more Americans still dislike Obamacare than like it, a new poll shows.

Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, touts a health care agenda that would build on the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy initiative. Presumptive GOP nominee Trump wants to repeal it and institute an alternative plan that would eliminate health coverage for an estimated 18 million people.

When it comes to health care, 46 percent of voters believe Clinton’s views are closer to their own, compared to 32 percent for Trump and 15 percent who don’t think either candidate represents them on the issue, according to Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation survey results released Friday. The responses were predictably partisan, although Clinton beats Trump among independents 39 percent to 30 percent.

This is despite the continuing lukewarm view the public has of the Affordable Care Act, a law enacted while Clinton served in Obama’s cabinet that passed Congress solely on Democratic votes. Like the results of other health care questions, views on Obamacare tilt heavily partisan. Overall, 46 percent of those surveyed view the ACA unfavorably compared to 40 percent who view it favorably.

Also notable is that voters still trust Democrats to fix the Affordable Care Act and on a plethora of other health care issues over Republicans, according to the poll. Likewise, respondents tended to answer in ways that conformed to their political party affiliations. 

Almost half said Democrats would do a better job handling the future of the ACA and cutting health care costs. Fifty percent trusted Democrats more when it comes to reducing prescription drug costs and managing Medicaid, the federal-state health program for low-income people, those with disabilities and frail senior citizens. 

The Affordable Care Act itself is the top health issue for Republicans, the survey shows, with 41 percent saying the presidential candidates should talk about the law more.

By contrast, 41 percent of Democrats believe White House hopefuls should discuss health care costs and 40 percent think covering the uninsured should be a bigger part of the campaign. Among independents, 39 percent want more talk about health care costs and 26 percent think the candidates should further debate the ACA.

Even though these numbers overall appear to give Democrats an edge on health care issues and even though Obamacare persistently isn’t popular, these matters aren’t likely to turn the election.

When the Kaiser Family Foundation asked voters which issues were “extremely important,” health care ranked in the middle of a group of 10 issues, with 37 percent believing that it was. The top issues were the candidate’s personal characteristics and terrorism and national security, each of which 46 percent described as extremely important.

And as for the Affordable Care Act, Kaiser polls dating back to 2010 almost always find more people dislike it than like it, and Obama won re-election in 2012 anyway. 

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.

Even the Lone Ranger Had Tonto

The current presidential race got me thinking about what truly makes a strong, powerful and trusted leader in the world. For the purposes of this blog, let’s leave opinionating about the candidates’ abilities at the moment up to CNN, FOX NEWS, and Saturday Night Live. Instead, let’s focus on your leadership abilities. On how you become a leader in your own life, at work, at home, in the classroom, and in your community.

Why? Because great leaders inspire change.

I decided to do a little research and find out what people think great leadership consists of. I discovered that not everyone has the same list; and, in fact, I’ve been getting a little flack for how “intense” and demanding my definition is. However, everything special or extraordinary I ever produced in my life came on the heels of a dare or overcoming some sort of fear, so what the heck, I dare you to define leadership as boldly as I do, and then go for it.

WHAT MAKES A GREAT LEADER?

  1. You have a defined purpose. Your vision is locked into your gut. You know who you are and what you want to say.
  2. You walk your talk.
  3. You talk and talk. You want to be heard and followed.
  4. Your mission is for a higher purpose.
  5. You set an example. In other words, you put yourself through something to turn your ordinary into extraordinary, publicly.
  6. You are transparent. You don’t hide things. People are allowed to know you, warts and all.
  7. You master your own mind and keep excuses at bay.

So, are you living your true mission? Do you know people like this? Sure, it’s a stringent, impressive and not easily achievable list. Except, if you’ve got any interest like me in its pursuit, I’ve put together a few pointers below for you to ponder as you step up and into being a powerful, purposeful leader in your life.

BUTCHER YOUR CHICKEN

Being a leader means people will look at you, watch you more closely and yes, judge you. There is no way around it. Many of us are fearful of being judged and thus manage what we say. You cannot be a chicken and a great leader at the same time. If you are afraid of being judged or worried about what people think about you, you will never be proud and confident in your life.

Do note, if you are judging your bosses, spiritual leaders or yoga teachers, it probably means you want their job and think you could do it better, but are too chicken to admit it. Because we know how strongly we judge, we fear being judged by others. Know you are going to be judged and busy yourself with setting standards that YOU want to meet and then meeting them.

OWN YOUR CRAP

Now, we all make mistakes and have negative qualities. It’s hard for anyone to admit when he or she is wrong, but it’s especially hard when you are the leader and you have to admit it up and down the pecking order, or in front of everyone. At our company, we make telling on ourselves a common practice, but it’s still hot-in-the-face-worthy work. And, we recognize how unique this culture is to be so inviting and forgiving. In most communities, admitting you’ve been a jerk is a big risk and pride prevents you from doing it, even if it would be the quickest way to resolve conflict, upgrade a system and/or improve your ability to lead.

A while back, I told a coworker that I thought I could do something better than she could. It turned out I was wrong. Now, as long as I didn’t own that “truth” or tell anyone, I still believed I could do it better. I’m sure you can imagine how much I did not want to admit out loud that disgusting judgment. But I did!

Whenever I own my crap or cop to something, as soon as I say it out loud, its validity is now in question and communication, leadership and affinity can be restored. Once it’s vocalized, it’s as if something about the words meeting with the air changes it (like iron oxidizing into rust) and it becomes absurd. We can all get back to work and I can go back to leading, not from on a high horse and being above others, but from a place grounded in my own integrity. I know I’m not perfect, and as a leader, I made the promise to always look for my weaknesses and mistakes and own them.

Telling the truth and owning what doesn’t work about you, keeps you trustworthy and safe to those around you.


EVEN THE LONE RANGER HAD TONTO

Great leaders are not controlling or ‘Lone Rangers.” They know when to ask for help and delegate. They are team players who let others rise up around them. I can be a baby at this level of leadership. I like trying to do everything myself, but it never works out for me. I end up getting overwhelmed, start dropping balls and people stop trusting me. I now have promises about delegating tasks to employees and communicating when I need help. This brings the team closer together and has people trust me more.

Love
Laurie

When Dodging Questions Makes You Seem More Trustworthy

We are a nation that claims to love frankness — we collectively want you to give it to us straight, no sugar coating, no polish, a desire reflected in both our political theater and our pop culture. You can see it in Donald Trump’s obsession with “political incorrectness,” with Hillary Clinton’s struggle to appear trustworthy; you can see it in the latest wave of disdain for the Taylor Swift PR machine, and in Jennifer Lawrence’s constant fart jokes.

But we also contain multitudes, which means that when the occasion demands, we can forgive — and even celebrate — an artful dodge, at times even mistaking it for something like honesty. And as a new case study in the International Journal of Sport Communication illustrates, we’re often pretty bad at distinguishing between artful hedging and the candidness we claim to crave.

Related: Can Ambiguity Explain Why Some People Seem Really Creepy?

The paper focuses on a press conference that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady held in January 2015 to address questions around “Deflategate,” the accusation that the Patriots had tampered with balls used in their AFC championship game that season. Last winter — after the Patriots had gone on to win the Super Bowl but before the NFL released its Deflategate report — the study subjects, a group of 105 college students, watched one of two versions of the press conference. Some of them saw a compilation of unedited snippets of the conference, in which Brady often started his answers with “I don’t know” before adding some additional explanation; the others watched a recording in which the “I don’t know”s were removed, so he appeared to launch right into straightforward answers.

Somewhat counterintuitively, when the participants filled out surveys after the videos, those who had seen the version without the “I don’t know”s thought Brady dodged more questions than those who saw him hedge. They also tended to think of him more favorably, even after study author David Clementson controlled for preexisting attitudes toward Brady, the Patriots, the Seattle Seahawks (who lost that Super Bowl), and the NFL in general.

On one level, says Clementson, a communications professor at the Ohio State University, it’s not actually that weird of a finding; it’s just an extension of the basic decency we typically extend to people in our day-to-day conversations — with a friend, a co-worker, a tourist on the street who stops you for directions. “Why should we think there’s necessarily anything wrong with [saying you don’t know something]? If I ask, ‘Is it supposed to rain today?’ and you say, ‘I don’t know, I have no idea,’ I’m not going to say, ‘How dare you? Why are you dodging my question?'” he says. “We give people the benefit of the doubt. They don’t have to answer all of our questions as directly as possible.”

On the other hand, though, Tom Brady isn’t a friend or a co-worker or a lost stranger — he’s a public figure, and people who haven’t interacted with him personally will nevertheless have opinions about his character. And in that regard, the paper is an interesting spin on a strange quirk of human psychology — that regardless of how much we say we love straight talk, we really love a good hem and haw. It’s called equivocation theory, the idea that vague nonanswers can be more persuasive or more palatable than straightforward replies.

Equivocation theory — also sometimes referred to as “strategic ambiguity” — is built in part on the work of psychologist Philip Zimbardo, who would later become famous for conducting the Stanford Prison Experiment. As a graduate student at Yale in the late 1950s, Zimbardo concluded from his research on ambiguity that people tend to prefer vague messages because they can more easily reconcile them with their existing beliefs, interpreting them whichever way is most convenient. Clementson’s case study, he argues, carries that idea to its logical conclusion: “You don’t get much more ambiguous and non-straightforward than ‘I don’t know,'” he says.

But taken this far, he adds, the concept doesn’t apply to everyone. Clementson usually focuses his research on politicians, who, he says, typically don’t get the same sort of leeway to admit they don’t know something (remember all the flak Hillary caught for saying she didn’t know how to wipe an email server?). A candidate can typically get away with vague speechifying — one experiment using snippets of the 1960 Kennedy-Nixon presidential debate, in fact, found that people preferred the less-clear-cut answers over the concrete policy descriptions — but won’t be as easily forgiven for claiming a lack of knowledge.

Related: The Importance of Losing Yourself to Awe Once in a While

“Sports figures, movie stars, entertainers — our tax dollars aren’t paying them, we aren’t electing them to represent us in certain matters,” he says, and so our expectations are lower than they are for politicians, college professors, or similar roles where authority comes from amassing and disseminating knowledge.

“The thinking is, if they don’t know the answer to that question, no one knows the answer to that question. They’re in a position of authority where they have to know the answer,” he says. “If the White House press secretary says ‘I don’t know,’ it’s like, if you don’t know, why are you here?” Besides, athletes and entertainers build their credibility by being good at what they do; candidates and elected officials, on the other hand, build their credibility on knowing things — which means it’s better to bluster through a tough question than it is to ‘fess up.

Michelle Bachmann Says Jews Will Be Free To Say ‘Merry Christmas’ When Donald Trump Is President

Former Minnesota Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R) returned to the spotlight this week with an unusual definition of “religious liberty.” Apparently, it’s a land where people of all faiths can come together and say “Merry Christmas.”

Over the weekend, Bachmann told right-wing radio host Jan Markell that Donald Trump “gets and understands religious liberty.” To show how much Trump “gets and understands” it, Bachmann shared an anecdote she said came from a meeting with the reality-TV-star-turned-GOP-presidential-candidate.   

“He even said, ‘I don’t understand, when I was growing up, everybody said Merry Christmas. Even my Jews would say Merry Christmas,’” she explained. “’New York City, there are a lot of Jews, and they would even say Merry Christmas. Why can’t we even say Merry Christmas anymore?’” 

The comments were posted online by Right Wing Watch.  

Bachmann also said Trump had “1950s sensibilities” and “1950s common sense,” and warned that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton would bring “certain destruction” and “catastrophic decline” and a “godless United States that will walk into certain catastrophe.” 

 

(h/t Raw Story)

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.

Dear Jennifer (And All Women)

This week, I was having dinner with two friends who happen to be two of the most successful and beautiful women I know.

As it usually does with female friends, conversation quickly turned to clothes and from clothes to bodies and from bodies to general self-loathing.

We each participated.

I hate my tummy, always have. I’m not a fan of my teeth either and am willing one day to fork over a lot of money to change them. They each hated their arms, my housemate hates her nose, my mom hates her neck, and I’ve never met someone who had something positive to say about their thighs.

I’m not overstating these two friends. They’re each stunning in their own right, and intimidatingly successful. One has a job that hundreds would covet and has risen through the ranks of her career at an unprecedented speed. The other is fronting a massive national campaign that has received global attention.

And we sat there, talking about arms.

On Thursday, Jennifer Aniston articulated the subconscious agreement all women enter into. The “agreement” is an unwritten standard of expectations for all women. Women must be skinny, quiet, dainty, successful but not overly successful, they must get married, have children and then bounce back to being skinny.

We enforce these expectations on each other. We wonder why our single friends are single, we wonder when our loved up friends will get married and we ask when our married friends will have children.

We enforce these expectations on ourselves. We strive for thigh gaps, longer legs, flatter tummies and of course, toned arms.

Throughout my career, I’ve met and interviewed dozens of incredible women. Beautiful women, women I admire and women who’s success I try to emanate. I remember snippets of most of these interviews but the most poignant moment I had was when speaking to a survivor of an eating disorder. She was talking about her girlfriend and spoke passionately about what she admired most in her, gushing over her kindness, her intelligence and her wit. She was a confident speaker, but when I asked her why she admired those traits in a partner but hated herself purely on physical attributes, she was speechless.

In fairness, it’s a question I can’t answer either.

Beauty is a double-edged sword — what we admire in others is rarely what we strive for in ourselves.

Aniston called for an end to this subconscious agreement, she pleas for a conscious attempt to re-evaluate beauty and to change the currency through which we value a woman’s worth.

She want’s to change the record and so do we.

Of course, it’s easy to buy into the agreement. We’ve got a lot of work to do to change things. We’re surrounded by unrealistic standards of beauty, we’ve evolved to be voyeuristic and we’re guilty of speculating.

But Jesus we’ve got to be sounder to each other and ourselves. We need to be a sisterhood.

I need to tell my friends that they have fucking great arms. That I’m amazed at each of them and that it astounds me what they’re capable of.

I need to say sorry to Jennifer Aniston for caring that she might be pregnant and say that generally she’s just a total badass and I fucking loved Cake.

I want a flatter tummy, but I also want to be a better woman, a better friend and a smarter journalist. I want to write for the women I admire, write about the women I admire, and radiate support.

So thanks Jen, sign me up for the new agreement.

In The Battle Against Mental Health, One Doctor Conquers Her Demons

2016-07-14-1468458165-1321262-MentalIllnessPhotobyAlachuaCounty.jpg
“Mental Illness.” Photo by Alachua County.

Dr. Z met me at a coffee shop on a rainy day in San Francisco. We sat across from each other, sipping hot coffee as funky 70s music boomed from the speakers. It felt horribly out of place considering what our meeting was about: her suicide attempt.

She was apprehensive and I understood why. Unfortunately, there still exists significant stigmas related to mental illness, and judgment seems only harsher for those who are considered successful. We live in a time where even presidential candidates, those entrusted to represent our nation, mock those with mental illnesses and are cavalier with offensive and hurtful terminology.

Her dark hair was worn up in a messy bun, and she wore baggy sweatpants–a nice break from the pencil skirt and white lab coat she sports on a daily basis during her busy outpatient practice. She is a beautiful, high-functioning woman who is loved by her patients and extremely accomplished in her medical career. But there are parts of her identity that you cannot find on her resume or LinkedIn profile. She is a survivor of depression and bipolar disorder, and she battles mental illness every day.

When asked about her past struggles, she describes dark times, like when she temporarily dropped out of medical school because she was coping with the death of a loved one, while simultaneously running from an abusive relationship. This ultimately lead to a dangerous depressive episode and she was hospitalized in an inpatient psychiatric ward for two weeks.

“All I remember is being scared,” she recalls.

She explains during the hospitalization, fear gripped her amidst the heavily regimented and structured therapy sessions. She was put in restraints; given medications; and she felt like a fish trapped in a glass bowl.

Despite these hard times, Dr. Z says it was the therapy provided in this harsh experience that provided her with the ladder she needed to climb out of the hole. Lots of work laid ahead of her when she left the psychiatric ward, but she was motivated to find peace and the support needed to achieve her goals. She ultimately returned to her home, enrolled back into medical school, and cut out the toxic people in her life. The rest is history.

When asked how this experience changed her, she told me a person gains proper perspective in the face of trauma and tragedy. She now uses this force to propel herself and others around her forward. People who meet her would have no idea she battles mental illness. Rather than run from her difficult situation, she has embraced it, harnessed it, and is now empowered by it.

Mental health is finally getting much-needed attention from influential organizations, the media, celebrities, and even world leaders. Advocates have made great strides in their attempts to erase the stigma of such diseases and in raising awareness of mental health challenges. But there is still much work left to be done. Approximately one in five American adults experience mental illness in a given year. More worrisome, is that suicide rates have increased over the last decade, and in 2014 there were 42,773 documented suicide deaths. It is the second-leading cause of death among people ages 15 to 34.

This article is not about praising one individual. The purpose is to recognize that cultural misconceptions about mental health can become oppressive, and create a sense of shame and denial for those who suffer from these diseases. This makes it significantly harder for people in need of treatment to seek help. Dr. Z is living proof that even the most accomplished of individuals can suffer from a mental illness–and overcome it.

I know some people will think Dr. Z is unqualified to care for sick patients, but nothing could be further from the truth. Because of her struggles, she is able to deliver better care for those who need healing. She has a sensitivity and personal awareness that is needed desperately in modern medicine but cannot be taught in text books. Because of her mental health history, not in spite of it, she has been able to save countless lives, in more ways than one.

The same is true for so many other mental health survivors. Emotional turmoil can transform a person into a tool for radical change and transformation, one through which others are able to become stronger and healthier. It is our duty to create a culture of sensitivity and acceptance, perhaps now more than ever, so that we might see all those affected by mental illness reach their full potential.

May Premiership a New Opportunity

In the last month, Britain has witnessed the kind of once in a generation political instability that will end up being taught by politics lecturers in 30 or 40 years time. Out of the torrent of backstabbing and the accusations has emerged but one constant. Theresa Mary May. It is her ability to hold the Home Office for so long and with so few faults that really distinguished herself from the rest of the pack and has ensured that she shall be next Prime Minister of the country. She was never the most popular of the candidates that put themselves forward for election. Indeed, as recently as June she was polling in 3rd in Conservative Home polling data, a full 14% behind then leader of the pack Michael Gove. She made a fair amount of enemies in the way that she implemented the cuts to police budgets and has been viewed in many quarters as lacking the necessary personal characteristics in order to become Prime Minister. Indeed, her career has been plagued by gossip over what clothes or shoes she is wearing at any given engagement, as if that is the most important thing that she has to worry about. Those who have expended such energy on petty gossip made the grave mistake of underestimating her. Their complacency has helped her achieve the peak of British politics. Much energy was focused upon two Oxford Union presidents (Gove and Johnson) but it was the unassuming Oxford University Conservative Association (OUCA) office holder that managed to bring them all down.

Theresa May represents a lot of thing for the Conservative Party. She first represents an opportunity to ensure that the party remains united in the aftermath of the referendum decision to leave the European Union (whether a second, legally binding referendum shall be required during the May premiership in order to trigger Article 50 remains to be seen). The other major opportunity is for her to shape a new policy landscape. The only area in which her views are known are on the issues that are pertinent to the Home Office, and these are likely to soften up once negotiation begins on a new post-EU settlement. There are three distinctive paths. She may pander to the right by either pursuing a more economically liberal or a more socially conservative agenda. Considering the disdain that she has recently expressed again unfettered capitalism, it is likely that she would prefer the latter. The second course of action is to continue on the blueprint of governance as it was set out by Cameron. The Notting Hill set way of doing politics has a lot of flaws though. It is a thoroughly uninspiring doctrine that has managed to degenerate the meaning of the phrase ‘compassionate conservatism’ into a mere soundbite and seems overly obsessed with office seeking.

However, there is a third option, and it has something of the Third Way about it. The concept of the One-Nation Conservatives is one which can trace its roots back to the celebrated 19h Century Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, and has been implemented in the 20th Century by Stanley Baldwin, Harold Macmillan and Edward Heath. The central tenant of the One-Nation Conservative is this. That with the ability to accumulate wealth and exert power, there is a level of responsibility towards the less fortunate to ensure that they are provided with the opportunities with a better life. Considering the amount that is said about inequality in modern day public discourse, this kind of conservatism is a refreshing alternative to the brand of right wing politics that is willing to tolerate vast chasms of inequality because it is the will of the market. One Nation Conservatism shares a lot with the social democracy that came to be in the 20th Century. They both accept capitalism as the best mode of production whilst acknowledging its limitations. They both realise that gradualism ought to be preferred to radical destabilisations of the political system and there is a sense that a sense of unity ought to be forged as opposed to emphasising the arbitrary divisions which are often laid down by the far left and right.

Given this is the case, why should one suggest that Theresa May follow this kind of politics and buck the trend of the Thatcherite consensus which has held a feverish (even if weakening) grip on the way in which politics has been conducted? The first reason is that May is evidently not a Thatcherite by any stretch of the imagination. When she told the Conservative Party conference in 2002 that they were viewed by many as the ‘Nasty Party’, it is perfectly reasonable to assume this is a reference to the indifference many in the party had developed towards individual suffering if it was not the result of government intervention. Even during her university days, she managed to remain remarkably centrist when the Conservative Association was fracturing into ideologically charged fragments. This means that she can be operating on ground that she is far more comfortable with and is likely to provide a more consistent policy set which she has a greater belief in. The other is that there is a lot to be gained electorally and ideologically by moving the Conservative Party in a slightly leftward direction.

Electorally, the Tories in a One-Nation set up would be able to claim many votes from traditional working class strongholds who have become tired of the ideological posturing which has come to be a defining feature of the Corbyn-led era. With the Liberal Democrats being unable to find the kind of traction that they needed for a swift recovery from the 2015 election and it suggests that playing the cards right could ensure a prolonged period through which May can pass her agenda. There is also a very strong moral case for doing such a thing. There are many in this country who are reliant upon a Labour-led representation of their interest in order to be able to get on in life. These people have now been systematically left down by the internal collapse that seems to be edging ever closer to them. It is now the duty of the Conservatives, as the only respectable major party in the House of Commons, to ensure that those interests are given a fair hearing. It is time that the Conservative Party claim back what moral authority is has when it is the party of governance. If this means better embracing the post-Thatcher age and abandoning the likes of Monetarism, then it is an endeavour well worth undertaking. May will be far more successful if she chooses to learn more from the centre left as opposed to the far right…

The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs. They also possess no eligibility requirements, no forms to fill out, or expiration date as well .One card will take care of a whole family. Also note that the ACRX cards will come to your organization already pre-activated .The cards are good at over 50k stores from Walgreen, Wal mart, Eckerd”s, Kmart, Kroger, Publix, and many more. Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072.

American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible.

American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

Here’s How You Can Meditate Anytime, Anywhere

There are many misconceptions about meditation that Tibetan Buddhist master Mingyur Rinpoche wants to set straight. The biggest one? You don’t have to quiet your mind for an extended period of time in order to reap the benefits.

You have the ability to engage in the practice anytime, anywhere. The key is focusing on what’s happening inside your head. Instead of trying to block your thoughts and emotions as you’re meditating, Rinpoche said that you should lean into what he calls your “monkey mind,” or the constant chattering in your head. 

The best way to do this is through the simple habit of being aware of your breath as you breathe in and out, he explained. Even though thoughts might creep into your mind, you are still able to meditate. 

“As long as you don’t forget your breath, anything is okay,” Rinpoche said. “[You don’t] need too much concentration. Just simply be aware of your breath.”

Take a look at the video above for more on the power of meditation.
