�Puro Conjunto!: An Album in Words and Pictures (CMAS Colecci�n Cultura


From the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas to East L.A. to the barrios of Chicago, people are listening to the heartfelt, accordion-driven sounds of conjunto. Born in South Texas in the 1920s, conjunto has become popular throughout the United States, Mexico, and, of late, Europe and Japan. But Texas remains the heart of conjunto music making. Indeed, the largest conjunto festival in the world is the Tejano Conjunto Festival en San Antonio, founded in 1982.�Puro Conjunto! is a wide-ranging collection of writings taken from the festival’s program magazine, Tonantzin. These writings include scholarly essays, articles by journalists and music critics, interviews with legendary performers, autobiographical accounts, short stories, and poetry. Their subjects include the history of conjunto music, its signature instruments, the social context and functions of conjunto, and personal histories of conjunto music giants. Most of these pieces have never been published elsewhere. Photos and full-color reproductions of the festival posters accompany the text. This collection should interest conjunto and folk-music fans, as well as students and scholars. Like the music, this book can be used in a variety of ways: as an entertaining survey of the genre, a valuable supplement to college textbooks, or a handy resource for research.

Seth Meyer’s Spoof Interview With Donald Trump’s Doctor Will Make You Feel Better

Donald Trump’s personal physician gave Seth Meyers an exclusive diagnosis on his patient on Monday. Kind of.

The “Late Night” host conducted a hilarious spoof interview with someone posing as Dr. Harold Bernstein, in which the doctor repeated the real gastroenterologist’s claims that the GOP presidential candidate “couldn’t be healthier.”

“He’s got perfect brain pressure and his chlorophyll is very low,” the parody version of Bernstein told Meyers ― before commenting on Trump’s mental health, his testicles and the real reasons as to why it only took him five minutes to write the former reality TV personality’s now-infamous medical report.

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.

The Fateful August Of Donald J. Trump

In the month since the conventions, the jittery surface of the 24 hour news cycle has been roiled by crosscurrents, its avatars trumpeting each new event as more dramatic than the last. But beneath there is a sickly stillness of a candidacy mired in the swampland of Donald Trump’s own mind, creating a numbing ennui seeping through the electorate like encephalitis in slow motion. Too many Americans have realized who he is.

The contrast between the dystopia of Cleveland – four midnights in America – and the competence of Philadelphia left him trailing badly. But something worse had happened to Trump himself: instead of provoking excitement, he was inducing fear and stupefaction.

True, his lies come so quickly that none has meaning in itself. But the larger meaning comes through – Trump’s every statement has no meaning but Trump himself. To call him a liar is to assume deliberation in a man who cares nothing about the words he speaks beyond whether they serve him in the moment. Such people are not merely frightening – they are exhausting.

With 10 weeks to go, he seems no more thoughtful or capable then he did during the primaries, when all he had to do was inflame a plurality of inflammable Republicans. The only difference is that, fearful of defeat, he reads more often from a Teleprompter, proving nothing but that he has the basic literacy to recite the simplistic sentences others write for him. Beneath his fantastical promises, he still has no coherent vision of America.

In short, Trump has no program but Trump. He may have changed his management team, but he cannot change himself.

The larger audience of the general electorate is on to this, and it worries them. They sense that the real man – the only man Trump values – resides in his spontaneous utterances. And those betray the stunted soul who lives within Trump 3.0.

That is why his attack on the Khan family – a far more egregious and persistent lapse than Mitt Romney’s 47% moment – lingers in the mind. His stunning lack of empathy, particularly for Mrs. Khan, was bad enough. Add lack of judgment – a normal man would not disparage the parents of a dead American soldier. And, even worse, throw in his whiny claim that he was “viciously attacked.”

He kept after this for four days, asserting on his own behalf that his pursuit of billions “involved a lot of sacrifices” – though not, perhaps, quite as wounding as losing a son or, even more precious, his own life. But we swiftly learned that Trump was never at risk of this, having secured a medical deferment during Vietnam – a safe harbor he falsely attributed to a high lottery number. Another man might have maintained a graceful silence.

But then another man would not try to recover his footing by accepting a Purple Heart from a veteran, then braying that this was a “much easier” way of acquiring one than actually getting wounded in the service of his country.

That’s the thing. The principal truth emanating from Trump’s mouth is the depressing revelation of Trump’s character.

As with all the months before, August was replete with such defining moments. The difference is that more Americans are watching Trump more closely. And what they see disqualifies him – not just as a leader, but as a man.

Instead of reaching out to Republican officeholders worried about his candidacy, he disparaged them. But this was as nothing to the several days he spent insisting that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were the “founders” of ISIS, praising himself as a “truth teller” before retreating, under pressure, to the claim that he was merely being “sarcastic.” Whatever he was being, it was not presidential.

Asked about sexual harassment, he opined that should his own daughter be victimized, “I would like to think she would find another career or find another company…” Startling – until one remembered that Trump defended Roger Ailes against charges of serial harassment worthy of Bill Cosby, questioning the motives of some of Ailes’ accusers.

But this is standard fare, for Trump’s search for the bottom is bottomless. Having begun the month by attacking the Khans, he ended it by exploiting the separation of Hillary Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin, from the troubled Anthony Weiner – suggesting that Weiner had access to classified information from the State Department. His grounds? There are none. For Trump, gratuitous cruelty to others is just another opportunity to get the attention he craves.

This ugly verbal incontinence has a way of turning sinister. Hence his suggestion that “the Second Amendment people” could find a way to prevent Hillary Clinton from appointing judges they don’t like – a casual recycling of the violent right-wing trope that “Second Amendment remedies” may be needed to address some imaginary federal overreach.

Thus, too, the rancid undertone of his commentary on race, religion or ethnicity. Not to mention an ingredient which, in its own way, is equally disturbing – the sense that his statements in any given moment, while revealing his inherent bigotry and irresponsibility, stem from nothing deeper than the pursuit of personal advantage.

Speaking in Maine, he offended locals of all races by groundlessly portraying peaceful Somali immigrants to the area as sources of crime and potential terrorism. Having used every possible avenue to stoke fear of illegal Mexican immigrants, he briefly extended a supposed olive branch: after polling a town hall audience on how to treat them – an appalling exercise in itself – he implied that maybe, after all, he would not empower a deportation force to kick out all 11 million. 24 hours later he reversed himself in a near incoherent babble to Anderson Cooper, the essence of which was that his position had not changed at all. People noticed.

Ever more, his bewildering blizzards of words on all subjects have exposed the ignorance and vacuity at his core, creating a sense among voters that there is nobody home. Even his purported outreach to African – Americans – delivered to a crowd of white folks in an obvious effort to mollify white suburbanites – was riddled with condescension and inaccuracy and suffused with racial stereotyping: “You live in your poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58% of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?”

One can start with any hope of a responsible dialogue about race. Trump”s “alt-right” view of African-Americans – so effectively skewered by Hillary Clinton – decamps from reality. By any historic measure our cities are safer. Despite the stubborn scourge of our racial history, more black Americans are doing better, and few recognize their communities – however grave their difficulties – in the bleak “war zones” that Trump describes. To be sure, the devastating portrait he paints is about something real: not the lives of black people, but about how Donald Trump has always seen black people.

To the extent that he sees them – or anyone else but himself – at all. Over the weekend, the cousin of NBA star Dwayne Wade was randomly killed in Chicago by gunfire while walking her baby. Trump responded with a particularly odious tweet: “Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP ” – neatly exemplifying his insensitivity to personal tragedy and to black Americans as a whole.

Among increasing numbers of Americans, the overall effect is boredom and fatigue – akin to listening to a cretinous uncle, deep in his cups as he spoils Thanksgiving dinner, spouting ignorant racial theories made even more dispiriting by the certainty that he shares them with his friends. All that jolts one out of stultitude is that Trump wants his friends to make him president.

Equally noxious is his appeal to racism as a means of delegitimizing the general election in advance. “I’m telling you,” Trump forecasts, “November 8 we’d better be careful because that election is going to be rigged.” Though this line has a long history in the authoritarian playbook, its most recent antecedent is Republican voter suppression laws targeting minorities and the poor, rationalized as a shield against electoral fraud which is statistically nonexistent.

To Trump’s noisy displeasure, courts across the country are striking down these laws as unwarranted and unconstitutional. So Trump has escalated by proposing voter suppression vigilante – style: encouraging squads of supporters to show up at polling places to identify suspect voters. One need not be a cynic to appreciate that the means of identification will involve, to put it gently, pigmentation.

The most immediate effect of this is likely to be race – based violence and intimidation. But as corrosive is Trump’s cynical effort to excuse defeat by eroding confidence in our electoral process – in this case, because “the other” has stolen the election from his followers in collusion with government in key states. This is classic Trump, a cocktail of racism, paranoia and social grievance, spiked with his own moral bankruptcy. The residue will resemble the birther movement in its damage to our societal glue – the feverish belief among a subset of Americans that Hillary Clinton, like Barack Obama, is not a legitimate president.

But there are conspirators enough to satisfy anyone with a grudge. Trump tells us that “if the media covered me honestly and didn’t put false meaning in the words I say, I would be beating Hillary by 20%.” It is, indeed unfair for journalists to quote him. And so, ever presidential, he tweets gossip about the romantic relationship of two of his perceived enemies – regulars on Morning Joe. Every time one’s nausea passes, Trump revives it.

Even the world of science is suspect and corrupt. Vaccines cause autism – despite all evidence to the contrary. Global warming is a fiction created by the Chinese to sandbag our coal and petroleum industries. And, no kidding, regulations to protect the ozone layer diminish the quality of his hairspray. This might be funny save that one function of a president is – or should be – to nurture science which enhances and saves lives. Once again, Trump spreads ignorance to advance his favorite and only cause – himself.

A particularly disturbing compound of lies, stupidity, self – delusion and self – interest fuels Trump’s vacuous commentary on Vladimir Putin. Start with the foundational falsehood: Trump’s stunning claim in 2014 that “I was in Moscow recently and I spoke, indirectly and directly, with President Putin, who could not have been nicer.” Or his assertion in a November, 2015 GOP debate that “I got to know [Putin] very well because we were both on ’60 Minutes.'”

Six-year-olds are allowed to conjure imaginary friends. But not presidential candidates. It is beyond dispute – as Trump has now been forced to admit – that he and Putin have never met or even spoken. Even more bizarre is that Trump seems to imagine that the rest of us share his incapacity to separate fiction from reality – and thus that no one would notice, for example, that 60 Minutes taped its interviews with Trump in New York and Putin in Moscow.

But his obsession with Putin transcends the merely fantastical, raising serious questions about our national security. He publicly encouraged the Russians to hack Hillary Clinton’s email. And, quite clearly, he is the intended beneficiary of hacking against the Democratic National Committee performed, experts believe, by Russian intelligence, resulting in emails siphoned through Wikileaks to damage Clinton’s campaign. One must wonder why Putin takes such an apparent interest in making Trump our commander-in-chief.

Could it be, just maybe, that this serves Putin’s interests?

Trump’s ignorance surely does. Questioned by George Stephanopoulos as to why the GOP platform softened its stance on defending the Ukraine against Russian aggression, Trump said of Putin, “He’s not going into Ukraine, okay, just so you understand.”

Astonished, Stephanopoulos rejoined, “Well, he’s already there, isn’t he?”, compelling a clearly mystified Trump to fudge with, “Okay, well, he’s there in a certain way…” That certain way, as any Ukrainian could tell him, includes the annexation of Crimea and insinuation of Russian troops and military hardware into that part of the country which remains.

But not to worry, Trump said – “From what I’ve heard [the Crimeans] would rather be with Russia than where they were.” The origins of this insight went unmentioned, though one possible source is his erstwhile campaign manager, Paul Manafort, who has raked in millions advising a pro – Russian autocrat who was formerly president of the Ukraine. Elsewhere, to Putin’s larger benefit, Trump has declared NATO to be “obsolete”, and questioned the principle that an attack on one member state is an attack on all.

Indeed, Trump’s partiality for Putin partakes of callousness – and not just toward Russia’s external victims. He described Putin to Joe Scarborough as a “leader, unlike what we have in this country”, fusing fondness for his imaginary friend Vladimir with an unseemly taste for authoritarianism. When Scarborough countered that Putin “kills journalists that don’t agree with him”, Trump blithely responded, “Well, I think our country does a lot of killing also, Joe.”

Of journalists? Such moral and intellectual vacancy is a boon to cold- blooded men like Vladimir Putin.

But perhaps, by pandering to Putin, Donald Trump is also looking out for himself. I have it on good authority that Trump can no longer get financing from American banks. There is no doubt that, under Putin’s auspices, he could do much better in Russia – if he has not done so already. Which may be one reason, among many, to conceal his tax returns.

Whatever the case, highly placed Russian officials have openly welcomed the prospect of a President Trump. No mystery here – if anyone knows how to exploit ignorance and egotism, it is surely Vladimir Putin. Which is why Michael Morell, a former acting director of the CIA, has characterized Trump as an unwitting agent of Russia.

Given the cacophony surrounding Trump, his affinity for Putin his stolen but imperfectly into the national consciousness. Still, it is already seeding doubt. And August is the month when more Americans became fearful of Trump as commander-in-chief.

Nowhere is presidential latitude broader, and the risks greater, than in the conduct of foreign policy and the exercise of military power. The opportunities to take ill – advised and unilateral actions are legion – abandoning allies, scrapping treaties and trade deals, arbitrarily barring all immigration from friendly European countries and, of course, lighting the powder keg of the Middle East. The latter threat, at least, is something that Americans get. But nothing focuses our collective mind like the specter of nuclear war.

Thus it is striking that the prospect of President Trump has provoked a broad discussion of the chief executive’s power to go nuclear. The alarming consensus is articulated by nuclear expert Franklin C. Miller: “The president and only the president has the authority to order the use of nuclear weapons.” Perhaps the most effective ad run by the Clinton campaign in August addresses the danger of Trump’s stubby fingers on our nuclear codes. And given his behavior – this month, and every month – more Americans are recoiling from the thought.

Just as, more and more, ever more Americans are disturbed by the ugliness Trump is stirring among his followers, and fear what might transpire should, as president, his narcissism morph into authoritarian behavior.

They notice that his “solutions” are simplistic – and frequently divisive. They notice that his idea of “winning” involves degrading all who displease him They notice his indifference to fact, and his addiction to conspiracy theories. They notice his appeal to anger and fear. They notice his reflexive recourse to images of violence. And they notice, above all, that his hard – core supporters are aroused by these traits.

Many other Americans are fearful or angry, and still more are worried about where we are headed. But they are worried, as well, about the spirit a President Trump might unleash in the land. Whatever their misgivings about the present, or the leadership of Hillary Clinton, they are unwilling to risk electing Donald Trump.

Or to live with his image in their living rooms. More and more voters notice his indifference to the people around him, or even to the words he is given to read from a Teleprompter. They notice a simple lack of interest in anyone other than himself. They notice that Trump evaluates others – for good or ill – based solely on whether they flatter him. They notice, in short, that Trump lacks the humanizing attributes of a normal human being.

That is lethal. Because August is the month when concern about Trump’s mental state went mainstream. For the first time in recent memory, a candidate’s pattern of behavior – sustained for 14 months now – made his psychological health the subject of serious and considered public discussion.

That is why – merely as one small example – his continued railing against the Khan family became so unsettling. It was not merely his lack of empathy. It was that he could not let it go – and lacked even the self- control to pretend to let it go. This is not the psyche of a man who should be president.

For a good while, those of us who said so were a distinct minority of commentators, running afoul of the understandable journalistic reluctance to speak to a candidate’s emotional stability. For many, this was a matter of ethics. But, at last, Trump’s behavior swept all that away.

And so in August, in varying ways, some of our most prominent pundits across the ideological spectrum expressed fears about Trump’s mental fitness to be president: David Brooks, Eugene Robinson, Charles Krauthammer, Peggy Noonan, Joe Scarborough and Robert Kagan. And, with annihilating thoroughness, Keith Olbermann spelled out in Vanity Fair how perfectly Trump’s otherwise inexplicable conduct matches up with the symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder.

Americans as a whole do not keep the DSM at their fingertips. But they do have instincts which, unlike Trump’s, stem from their experience in noticing other human beings. August was the month that a critical mass of Americans noticed that Donald Trump notices nothing but himself.

Fateful.

Mindful Dating III

The dynamics we have with our primary caregivers when we are young have a tremendous influence on our dating choices later in life. 

In all of my workshops I teach a section on Attachment Theory. John Bowlby and Mary Ainsworth theorized that people develop either secure or insecure attachment styles very early in life. Many people in our culture exhibit one of three types of insecure attachment styles:

1. Fearful/avoidant
2. Anxious
3. Disorganized

We must be cognizant of the dynamics that we have with each of our parents because those manifest later as attachment styles. For example, if our fathers or mothers were aloof and emotionally withholding, we should not be surprised if we are attracted to partners who turn out to be aloof and withholding.

There is a part of us that becomes what we loved and admired as children, and there is a part of us that becomes what we hated and despised as children.

Specifically, I have found that the wounded child in all of us feels betrayed because all he or she wanted was to be loved UNCONDITIONALLY and grew up in a society that primarily provided tools to gain love CONDITIONALLY – because we received good grades, behaved correctly, looked good, were good athletes, spoke well, earned money, were talented, etc.  This creates much resentment because even as children felt as if we were constantly “seducing” people into liking us. However the tools we learned to use to seduce people into liking us often are not the right tools for procuring the type of love that our hearts really yearn for later in life – they are more apt for procuring admiration.

Let me ask you: would you rather be admired or loved?

In an effort to individuate, sometimes we date people who are the exact opposite of one of our parents. Rebellion is an essential part of the individuation process – but it can also be inauthentic if it is only moving away from something rather than also moving towards something. 

I believe that babies individuate the first time they see themselves in a mirror (as a “self” distinct from their mothers), then again when they go to pre-school or school for the first time but are still living in their parents’ homes; then again when if they go off to college away from home but have their parents still paying to support them; then again when they live away from their parents and learn how to support themselves as adults.  There is a tension between having to obey and depend on your parents and wanting to be your own person.  Note the spate of young people in the last 35-40 years who got tattoos early in life; this is a subconscious declaration, “I own my body and nobody can tell me what to do with it anymore (even if you’re still paying my rent).” 

We are living in fascinatingly complex and often confusing times regarding gender roles, the ways we expect men and women to act.  We all agree that women should be paid equal salaries as men, yet many women still think that men should pay for meals as subconscious symbols of being providers and protectors.  There is a tension between wanting to be independent and wanting to be taken care of.

We have lived in a society that objectified women as sexy secretaries, waitresses, librarians, bank-tellers, store-clerks, nurses, etc. That archetype of the damsel in distress needing to be “saved” or taken care of – thankfully! – is dying.  But how do we move into the next paradigm of compassion, respect, equality and love?

One way is through conscious loving and authentic communications.  This is when we are mindfully aware of our wounds and how we learned to compensate for them as children. Usually there is some level of inauthenticity regarding these “assets.”  We must be aware of how we learned to seduce people into liking our “false selves” or personas and be brave enough to be authentic and vulnerable (which can be quite scary). And the first thing you need is a loving non-judgmental relationship with someone who is empathetic, loving and accepting of the whole you, not just the glitzy exteriors that we tend to choose to show the world – particularly the way we present our lives on the Internet.

Understanding Baker’s Cyst

Baker’s Cyst
A Baker’s cyst, also known as a popliteal cyst, is benign swelling found behind the knee that lies posterior to the medial femoral condyle.

2016-08-29-1472494424-9193140-BakersCyst3.PNG

The cyst is connected to the knee joint through a valvular opening.

2016-08-29-1472494452-9344980-BakersCyst4.PNG

Knee effusion (fluid on the knee) from intra-articular pathology or a meniscal tear, allows the fluid to go through the valve to the cyst in one direction. The cyst is located between the semimembranosus and medial gastrocnemius muscles, in the back of the knee.

2016-08-29-1472494490-1860893-BakersCyst6.PNG

Diagnosis
The patient usually has swelling behind the knee with pain, fullness, and tenderness. A baker’s cyst is easier to see with the knee fully extended. Diagnosis is confirmed by an MRI that will show the associated intra-articular pathology, usually a meniscal tear. An ultrasound may also be helpful. These tests are important, especially if the cyst is found to be outside of its typical position.

2016-08-29-1472494536-2992088-BakersCyst8.PNG

Causes
The two most common causes of Baker’s cysts are knee arthritis and meniscal tears.

Treatment
Treatment of painful, large cysts may include ice, compression wrapping, corticosteroid medication, strengthening exercises, aspiration of the cyst and/or excision of the cyst. Recurrence of Baker’s cysts is common if the intra-articular pathology is not corrected. The best treatment for a Baker’s cyst is arthroscopy and debridement of the intra-articular pathology.

2016-08-29-1472494583-993019-BakersCyst5.PNG

The cysts may burst causing calf pain and swelling. An examiner should rule out deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or thrombophlebitis.

Popliteal Cysts in Children
A popliteal cyst in children occurs as a soft tissue mass at the back of the knee. This type of cyst will occur more often in young boys than girls. They are asymptomatic and transilluminate. They are not considered a tumor. Popliteal cysts in children are treated by observation without surgery. They are not associated with a meniscal tear.

Anthony Weiner Reportedly Caught In Yet Another Sext Scandal

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), whose political career ended in disgrace after two sexting scandals, was apparently unable to put down his phone.

Weiner, 51, who’s married to top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, allegedly sent lurid tweets and photos of his crotch to another woman, the New York Post reported. One of the raunchy selfies included his young son in the background.

The woman who received the former Congressman’s photos has reportedly been chatting with him online since January 2015. She sent screenshots of their conversations to the Post and spoke to the newspaper on the condition of anonymity.

Although Weiner admitted to the newspaper that he and the woman had “been friends for some time,” he claimed they had never met in person.

In 2011, Weiner resigned from Congress ― and became the fodder of late night comedians ― after he accidentally posted a sexually explicit image of himself on Twitter. Although Weiner attempted to revive his political career in 2013 by running for New York City mayor, he lost the election amidst a second sexting scandal (the one where he used the alias Carlos Danger).

Afterward, Weiner mostly dropped out of the public eye, giving only occasional interviews with the media. He announced that he was undergoing therapy and vowed to focus on being a better father.

“Being a dad, that’s my job,” Weiner said in May on the “Here’s The Thing With Alec Baldwin” podcast.

In recent years, Weiner opened a consulting firm, became involved in a nonprofit restaurant and acted in the Syfy movie “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” This past spring, his sexual and political escapades were featured in the documentary “Weiner.”

White Lives Matter To Be Listed As Hate Group By Southern Poverty Law Center

White Lives Matter will soon be listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

SPLC said the status will be reflected in the next update of its “Hate Map,” which tracks the activities of hate groups around the country. 

“I can’t speak to how many chapters will be listed, but it’s clear that the leadership of the group, the ends of the group ― it’s just a flat-out white supremacist group,” Heidi Beirich, director of the center’s Intelligence Report, told the Houston Chronicle. “The ideology behind it, the racist leaders, everything about it is racist.”

White Lives Matter made headlines earlier this month when the group sent armed protesters to an NAACP office in Houston, where they waved Confederate flags. 

Their organizations and their people are shooting people based on the color of their skin,” White Lives Matter member Ken Reed told the Houston Chronicle at the time. “We’re not.”

However, the Anti-Defamation League said the protest was organized by the white supremacist organization Aryan Renais­sance Soci­ety: 

“Dur­ing the August 21 protest, the ARS sym­bol, a light­ning bolt and a runic sym­bol, was vis­i­ble on the group’s ‘white lives mat­ter’ ban­ner and on white shirts worn by some of the dozen or so par­tic­i­pants. Their mes­sage also included a sign read­ing ‘14 words,’ a ref­er­ence to the most pop­u­lar white suprema­cist slo­gan in the world: ‘We must secure the exis­tence of our peo­ple and a future for white children.’

The SPLC said in a blog post that one of the leaders of White Lives Matter was Rebecca Barnette, a 40-year-old Tennessee woman “who is also vice president of the women’s division of the racist skinhead group Aryan Strikeforce.” Barnette was also allegedly involved in the National Socialist Movement, the country’s largest neo-Nazi group, SPLC said.

While those organizations are already known as hate groups, the addition of White Lives Matter will be new to the map. 

“We are listing them because they are clearly white supremacists,” Beirich told VICE News. “Their motto should be ‘only white lives matter.’”

Although some called for Black Lives Matter to be listed as a hate group after the shooting deaths of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge, that organization doesn’t hold supremacist or separatist views and its leaders have condemned violence.

The SPLC said in a blog post last month: 

There’s no doubt that some protesters who claim the mantle of Black Lives Matter have said offensive things, like the chant ‘pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon’ that was heard at one rally. But before we condemn the entire movement for the words of a few, we should ask ourselves whether we would also condemn the entire Republican Party for the racist words of its presumptive nominee ― or for the racist rhetoric of many other politicians in the party over the course of years.

The next update to the “Hate Map” is expected in February.

This Wonderful Thing Called Our Twenties

I just dropped off an old friend at the airport and drove home as the sun was setting. It’s San Francisco, so it was perfect weather for my commute home. A song I really liked came on as I pulled away and there it was: my perfect life, right in front of me.

I’m 23, I’m struggling in the job market scene, and I’m constantly living in a state of unfamiliarity.

There’s nobody that can explain to you how life after college really feels. There’s nothing to compare it to. One day you’re with your friends and the weather is perfect and you’re all laughing about something stupid. The next day you’re getting chewed out by a boss or you see your friend getting married and you have an existential crisis.

This is our twenties.

And they’re a rollercoaster.

This section of our lives is the part we were always trying to get to, but most times now we end up wondering why.

Why does the world keep screwing with us so much? Why are we now so uncertain of things we used to be certain of? Why is there somebody shooting up a club? Why don’t we get the same respect that we show to others? Why aren’t things fair?

Then you run into an unforgettable day. You hike a mountain with friends and breathe in new air and sit on the side of a cliff wondering how in the hell you got there. What did you do to deserve a day like this? There’s suddenly nothing wrong.

Then you take a flight back to reality.

There’s a date that’s scheduled on Thursday with someone you really like, but you’re not certain they’re the one. Your parents give you a call and you talk about the usual. Your sister just got engaged. When did she get that old?

Most days are filler to get to those few hours where the universe ignites and you’re there, on the edge of figuring it all out.

It’s so real and so vibrant and so exciting, and then you’re suddenly driving home in the darkness.

We’re alone now.

We’re alone in the decisions that we make, which means we’re also alone when those decisions fall through in the worst way.

What should we do when we’re uncertain and the clock is ticking? Every choice seems so gigantic.

But that’s the power of our twenties. It’s finally up to us. The universe is hurling a lot of things our way, but it’s also poised to bow to our wishes.

Yes, there’s tough days. There’s moments when we snap and we wish that we were home and that we were ten years younger. But there’s also days where we’re sitting on the side of a mountain looking out at the earth, realizing that it’s ours for the taking.

Our twenties.

It’s our time to hurt, it’s our time to laugh, but most of all it’s our time to figure it all out. What should it all mean? Does it matter to figure it out right now?

Maybe you should go climb the mountain. Maybe you should call that old friend you’ve been ignoring. Maybe you should stare deeply into that person’s eyes and tell them they’re absolutely beautiful.

There’s no guide map now. There’s nobody to tell us where to go. But every decision that we make shows us who we are more and more until we slowly piece ourselves together into the person that we want to be.

This is our twenties. They’re scary, they’re fun, but sometimes they’re simply wonderful.

This Is What It’s Like To Try Out To Be A U.S. Open Ballperson

Serena Williams might be the champion of tennis, but there are other unsung heroes who are pushed to the brink of their athletic abilities each year at the U.S. Open, without whom the game could simply not go on.

They are, of course, the ballpeople, tasked with the ever important duties of grabbing tennis balls between rallies at what seem like record speeds. They have to constantly remain in precise position, all while trying to avoid being slammed by serves that can go over 150 miles per hour.

Back in June, I ― a person with slight athletic ability and even less tennis knowledge ― had the opportunity to try it out for myself. Before the real tryouts (which are open to the public) kicked off at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, I threw on one adorable (if not slightly too small) ballperson uniform and attempted my hand at what I thought would be a fun, easygoing experience.  

Boy, was I wrong.

Cathie Delaney, assistant director of ballpersons for the U.S. Open, showed my lack of skill no mercy. Between running for the ball, throwing the ball and quite frankly being near the ball, I was winded after the brief tryout, much to my delight and not much to Delaney’s.

In honor of the U.S. Open’s opening night August 29, check out our live stream of the tryout to see if I made it to the big time.

Spoiler alert: I didn’t.

Ice Cube Takes Down Donald Trump In 1 Devastating Tweet

Ice Cube told the world exactly what he thinks of Donald Trump on Saturday.

The rapper-turned-actor made his views on the GOP presidential nominee crystal clear after an old Bloomberg Politics interview, in which he appeared to praise the former reality TV personality, was circulated online by Trump supporters.

I will never endorse a mothafucka like Donald Trump! EVER!!!” Ice Cube, whose real name is O’Shea Jackson, posted on Twitter. His tweet immediately viral, and by early Sunday had garnered more than 15,000 likes and 9,000 retweets.

A representative for the former N.W.A. star told the New York Daily News that his post was a direct response to this tweet:

The tweet, from an account that posts pro-Trump news links, claimed the 47-year-old star was endorsing the Republican candidate in this November’s election.

It pointed to the April interview, in which he said Trump “looks like a boss to everybody and Americans love to have a boss,” as proof. With his explicit tweet, however, Ice Cube has proved that truly isn’t the case.

 

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.

New UN S-G Must Realize That Climate Change Threatens Our World

The task facing the next United Nations Secretary-General will not be an easy one. The world seems to be teetering on the edge of multiple, interconnected crises including conflict in Syria, tensions around Ukraine, and disputes over water and land resource issues. All of this at a time when we are seeing the biggest movement of people since World War II.

In the public debates the candidates for the next UN Secretary-General have participated in, they’ve shown that they can list what will be in their in-tray, but few have acknowledged the common thread running through many of these crises and challenges: the impact of a changing climate. Any analysis that fails to acknowledge this as one of the key drivers to current and future global instability is a flawed one.

The evidence of this impact is becoming increasingly apparent. Whilst very few are saying that climate change is a direct cause of conflict, it is certainly increasing the likelihood. Last month research published by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research found climate disasters increase the chance of armed conflict, particularly in ethnically-divided nations. Climate change is already contributing to social upheaval and even violent conflict by making bad situations worse. In 2015, the National Academy of Sciences linked a prolonged drought in Syria in 2011 to climate change, and suggested the drought may have contributed to the start of the conflict and subsequent migrant crisis: The 2006-2011 drought was particularly severe and led to widespread crop failures, which in turn forced people to move within Syria into cities in search of work, increasing the tension and chance of conflict in urban areas. As always, there will be alternative views and whilst other analysis suggests the link may not be so straightforward, the new additions have certainly added momentum to the debate.

Unlike her fellow candidates, Christiana Figueres — a Costa Rican diplomat and former head of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change — not only recognises that climate change is increasingly one of the biggest threats that we face, she also understands that the security implications need to be addressed along with all the other threats to global stability and prosperity, rather than in isolation. She knows that without such an approach climate change promises to make many of our most complex crises — from migration to conflict, food shortages to terrorism — much harder to solve.

A Secretary-General prepared to integrate a response to the risk posed by climate change across the UN will have the best chance at delivering peace during these turbulent times. International security today is dependent on understanding the effects of climate change on people’s prosperity within states and relations between states.

Figueres has demonstrated that she is a shrewd diplomat and coalition builder at the top of her game. She picked up a broken UN climate talks after the failure of the Copenhagen Summit in 2009, and proved she could help states work together to achieve the Paris Agreement, the first of its kind to commit all countries to reduce their carbon emissions and transition to economies based on renewable energy. States that once saw little to agree on have, through her skill and dedication, found common ground and agreed a deal which was previously seen as impossible.

What’s more, as was often repeated at the World Humanitarian Summit in May, the scale and frequency of the crises that are hitting home have stretched the UN and the humanitarian apparatus to the breaking point. The UN needs reform. It needs to treat these crises holistically and not remain beholden to a siloed approach that gives rise to internal demarcation disputes. The UN has shown it can deliver multilateral deals — not just on climate but also the Sustainable Development Agenda, and the Sendai Risk Reduction Framework.

The 21st century is proving extremely challenging, with many threats to our global prosperity and well-being. Under the new Secretary-General, the UN will have to adapt to meet these challenges and the candidate the members of the Security Council choose to recommend to the General Assembly must be capable of delivering; Christiana Figueres is that candidate.

13 Questions That Will Change Your Life

2016-08-18-1471552531-5357259-13QuestionsThatWillChangeYourLifeHP.jpg

When things aren’t going quite the way you’d like them to, it’s often the result of not asking yourself the right questions. Some questions are hard to confront because you’re afraid you won’t get the answer you want, others because you really don’t want to know the answer.

But the best things in life don’t come easily, and turning away from life’s toughest questions is a sure path to mediocrity. I believe that Socrates said it best:

“The unexamined life isn’t worth living.”

Socrates’ observation also applies to business. When Eric Schmidt was CEO of Google, he famously said, “We run this company on questions, not answers.”

Life, like business, runs on questions, not answers. Let’s take a closer look at some of the tough questions we should be asking ourselves regularly.

1. How do people see me differently than I see myself?

Have you ever heard a recording of your voice and thought, “Is that what I really sound like?” Because of the way the sound of the voice travels through the human skull, we never hear ourselves the same way that everybody else hears us. The same is often true for the way we behave. We interpret our behavior in terms of how we think we come across, whereas everyone else sees the real thing. A 360° assessment is a great way to gain this perspective. It gathers feedback that is constructive, anonymous, and accurate. If you forego the 360 and solicit feedback in person, make certain you ask for feedback that is specific, avoiding broad questions and generalizations. For example, you’re more likely to get an honest and accurate answer to, “How well did I handle myself in the meeting when everyone disagreed with me?” than to, “Am I a good boss?” And be careful to show that you’re receptive to the feedback. If you flip out or get defensive every time somebody speaks their mind, they’re going to stop doing it.

2. What/whom did I make better today?

That’s another way of saying, “Leave things better than you found them.” Ending each day by asking yourself what or whom you made better is a great way to keep yourself grounded and focused on what really matters.

3. Am I being true to my values?

Do you ever get that nagging feeling that something is a little off in your life? This often happens when little behaviors creep up on you that violate your values. If spending quality time with your family is one of your primary values, but you keep staying late at work, there’s a conflict. If you want that nagging little voice to go away, you’re going to have to do something about it.

4. If I achieved all of my goals, how would I feel? What can I do to feel that way as I work to achieve them?

The ability to delay gratification in pursuit of your goals is one of the most fundamental prerequisites for success, but delaying gratification doesn’t have to mean being miserable until you cross that finish line. You can achieve more–and have more fun doing it–if you let yourself feel some of that pride and pleasure along the way.

5. What haven’t I taken the time to learn about?

It’s a big world out there, and it’s getting bigger all the time. Scientists have theorized that it once took 1,500 years for the accumulated knowledge in the world to double; now it only takes a year or two. Don’t get caught behind.

6. In what areas of my life am I settling?

When you settle, you accept less than you’re capable of. Sometimes we settle in dead-end jobs. Other times we settle for unhealthy relationships. If you don’t ask yourself where and why you’re settling, it’s hard to stop it.

7. What do I want my life to be like in five years?

Lewis Carroll once said, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.” The corollary is that, once you have your destination in mind, you can plan your route. Five years is the perfect timeframe: It’s not so far in the future that you can’t imagine yourself there, but it’s not so close that you can’t do anything about it.

8. What would I do if I wasn’t scared?

From a survival perspective, fear has its purpose. It’s what keeps us from sticking our hand in the washing machine or any of the million other things that could get us hurt or killed. But fear has a tendency to get carried away. Instead of keeping you safe, it keeps you from improving your life and living your dreams.

9. Who has qualities that I aspire to develop?

When people have qualities that you admire, it’s a great exercise to reflect on these qualities and think about ways that you can incorporate them into your repertoire.

10. What problem are we solving?

Have you ever been in a meeting and suddenly realized that not everyone was having the same conversation? Not because people were talking over each other, but because they had different ideas about the purpose of the discussion. Sometimes it helps to put the topic on the whiteboard when you’re having a meeting. This makes certain everyone knows why they’re there.

11. What’s stopping me from doing the things that I should be doing?

It’s easy to shrug your shoulders and say, “I don’t know what to do,” but that’s just an excuse. Most of the time, we know exactly what we should be doing; we just aren’t willing to move the obstacles out of the way.

12. Will you be my mentor?

It’s an intimidating question to ask, but few people will turn you down. Everyone likes being looked up to, and it feels good to share our knowledge with others.

13. What’s the most important lesson I’ve learned so far in life? Am I living that lesson?

Sometimes life lulls us back into complacency and we’re forced to learn a powerful lesson twice. The trouble with this is that it’s just as much of a rude awakening the second time around.

Bringing It All Together

Asking the hard questions can be extremely uncomfortable. But we don’t learn and grow by sticking with what’s comfortable.

What other questions should people be asking? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

Why Does My Hip Click?

Snapping Hip
Snapping hip is an audible clicking or snapping sensation caused by hip movement that can be painful. There are a variety of reasons patients present with a clicking or snapping sensation in the hip. A click in the hip can be the result of the following: a labral tear, iliotibial band syndrome, psoas bursitis, psoas tendon snap, and arthritis of the hip. It is essential for physicians to understand each cause to provide an effective course of treatment.

Labral Tear
A labral tear is a common cause for clicking sensations in the hip joint. The labrum refers to the ring of cartilage surrounding the socket of ball-and-socket joints. The labrum of the hip is essential in providing stability to the joint. This same ring of cartilage can be found in the shoulder.

Labral tears can be the result of degenerative or traumatic processes. Degenerative labral tears can occur from repetitive motions or osteoarthritis. Traumatic labral tears can occur from injury or dislocation of the joint. Femoroacetabular impingement is a common cause of a labral tear. Impingement occurs when the proximal femur abuts the acetabulum with movement of the hip. This occurs especially in hip flexion. A patient with a labral tear will usually present with complaints of a clicking or a locking sensation in the joint. In addition, a patient will present with pain in the hip or groin, stiffness and decreased range of motion.

2016-08-26-1472230479-3420199-hip6.PNG

Diagnoses
To diagnose a labral tear, physicians will utilize a combination of physical examinations, imaging and diagnostic injections. MRI arthrograms are typically utilized to diagnose a labral tear, while injections are then used to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment for a labral tear can range from conservative modalities to surgical intervention. Conservative treatments include anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy and injection. If conservative treatment fails, arthroscopic surgery may be needed to debride or repair the tear and the impingement can be addressed at the same time.

Iliotibial Band Syndrome.
Iliotibial band syndrome is another common cause of snapping hip. The thickened iliotibial band snaps over the bony greater trochanter of the femur. The patient may develop trochanteric bursitis, adhesions, gluteus maximus inflammation or edema.

Diagnosis
Diagnosis of iliotibial band syndrome can be done by direct palpation of the greater trochanter. This can be accomplished by placing a patient on their side, while putting the hip into extension and rotation until a “pop” is heard or felt. The patient can reproduce the snapping and sometimes this moment is physically seen.


2016-08-26-1472230535-5500850-hip3.PNG

Ober’s Test
The Ober’s test is the best clinical examination for assessing the tightness of the iliotibial band. To perform the Ober’s test the patient will lay on their side with the unaffected leg on the bottom. The examiner will slowly abduct the leg with the knee in flexion and the hip in extension. When the iliotibial band is tight, the test is positive. In a positive test the patient will be unable to adduct the leg and the knees will not come together.

2016-08-26-1472230571-61357-hip4.PNG

Iliopsoas Tendon Snap
Iliopsoas tendon snap is the result of movement over the iliopectineal eminence. The iliopsoas tendon will snap over the pelvic brim. It is caused by inflammation of the bursa that lies between the front of the hip joint and the iliopsoas muscle or tendon. Diagnosis is usually difficult, the ultrasound or MRI may be normal or it may reveal fluid anterior to the hip joint (bursitis). An iliopsoas injection can be diagnostic. Abduction and external rotation and hearing the snap or the click of the hip will support this diagnosis.

2016-08-26-1472230606-4697293-hip2.PNG

Hip Arthritis
A click in the hip can also result from arthritis in the hip joint. Arthritis leads to the loss of cartilage between the head of the femur and the acetabulum. Without adequate cartilage, there is bone-on-bone interaction that causes pain, tenderness and inflammation of the hip joint. Patients will present with stiffness (limited movement), clicking in the hip joint, pain worsening with activity, and tenderness in the groin and hip. Physicians will utilize a combination of physical examinations and X-rays to identify loss of cartilage. Treatment for hip arthritis can be conservative or surgical. With severe arthritis a hip replacement will be needed to remove and replace the arthritic joint.

Donald Trump’s Black Voter Delusion

Michael K. Fauntroy is associate professor of political science at Howard University and the author of the book Republicans and the Black Vote. His next book, More than Just Partisanship: Conservatism and Black Voter Suppression will be published next year by New York University Press.

Donald Trump recently ramped up his Black voter outreach in the wake of poll after poll showing him failing to overcome a historically weak Democratic nominee in his bid for the White House. His Black outreach is equal parts condescension and bluster. He talked down to Black voters recently pointing out, inaccurately and out of context, that “you’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth are unemployed” before asking “What do you have to lose?” He also stated that he would get 95% of Black votes in his reelection campaign. Taken separately, these and other statements can charitably be said represent a deep misunderstanding of Black voters and Black life in America. Collectively, these statements reflect a deep delusion on the part of a candidate who has a history of race baiting.

Like most Republican nominees during the last eight decades, Trump has plenty of room for improvement. Credible recent polls show him with one or two percent support among Black voters. This is astonishingly low even among Republican nominees. If he ends up with two percent in November, then he would get half of what the 2008 nominee, John McCain, received in the historic election of Americas first Black President.

In the 22 presidential elections since 1936, for which even rudimentary polling was conducted, no Republican nominee has won a majority of Black votes. Only one, Thomas Dewey in 1944, received 40 percent, the high water mark in more than 75 years of presidential campaigns. Only three, Wendell Willkie, Dwight Eisenhower in 1956, and Richard Nixon in 1960, got between 30 and 39 percent. More recent Republican nominees have done consistently worse. In the last 10 elections, only Ronald Reagan in 1980 and Bob Dole in 1996 won 12 percent of the Black vote. Even setting aside the historic Barack Obama-induced headwinds facing John McCain in 2008 (four percent) and Mitt Romney in 2012 (six percent), GOP nominees since 1968 have largely been in the 10 to 15 percent range among African Americans. Trump is on the verge of a historically bad performance. After all, even Barry Goldwater won six percent of the Black vote in a treacherous 1964 campaign.

Trump’s “outreach” assumes that a few events in which he cynically mentions Black people is all that will be necessary to win over large numbers of African Americans to his cause. This strategy only works if Black voters are suddenly overtaken by amnesia and forget the many ways in which he has previously treated Black people. Unfortunately for Trump, there is a decades-long track record to show who he really is. He took out a full-page newspaper ad in April 1989 calling for a return of the death penalty in the wake of the infamous “Central Park 5.” The ad poured rhetorical gasoline on the anger many Whites felt over the five Black kids, the oldest of whom was 16, who were arrested for brutally beating and raping a White woman. They confessed under duress and without counsel present. Years later someone else confessed to the crime. DNA at the crime scene confirmed his guilt and the innocence of the falsely convicted. Trump has never apologized or acknowledged his inflammatory rhetoric during this period.

He joined up with racists when he became the most prominent among the far right birthers who repeatedly alleged that President Obama was not born in the United States. He elevated his profile among White racial conservatives by using his broad platform to traffic the false claims. Ignoring the evidence of Obama’s Hawaiian birth, he claimed that his investigators found that he was not born in the United States. He never produced evidence, just headlines. When proven false, rather than acknowledge his wrongness, he talked about the “service” he provided by keeping the issue in the news. Even now he cannot bring himself to acknowledge that he was wrong on all the facts about Obama’s birthplace.

The birth certificate foolishness, moreso than anything else he has said or done during the campaign, has made him radioactive in the Black community. Even Black people who are lukewarm to Obama understand the racist undercurrent of birtherism. They also understand that Trump led the charge in stoking the flames of birtherism. Questioning the nationality of an obviously native-born American, after a 2008 campaign that would have been stillborn if he were ineligible to serve, was Trump’s attempt to deligitimize the first Black President. Black people understood that then and remember it now.

His campaign is replete with other racial missteps and dog whistles. Since announcing his presidential bid, he has consistently tweeted or retweeted White supremacist conspiracy theories, erroneous statistics regarding Black crime, and seemingly encouraged the physical attacking of Black protestors at his rallies. Let’s also remember that David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, has repeatedly spoken very highly of Trump. Duke cited Trump as the inspiration for his decision to run for the U.S. Senate this year.

Any campaign that is serious about outreach to African Americans would at least do the following. First, it would include African Americans in significant decision making campaign positions. Second, it would advance policy proposals that reflect respect for and understanding of Black life. Third, it would constantly speak with an inspirational voice that encourages not demonizes. Fourth, it would advertise in Black media outlets and contract with Black vendors. More importantly than all this, serious outreach would be timely, not something seemingly done as an afterthought. Trump has failed on all counts. He has no significant African Americans in serious positions (No, Omorosa doesn’t count!). He has made no policy proposals that show an understanding of Black issues. A speech given barely more than three months before the election is not timely. There has been no inspirational rhetoric and no evidence of significant Black media or vendor engagement.

Donald Trump won the Republican nomination by swimming in the rotten river of racial stereotypes and invective. Those now talking about his pivot to a more presidential general election mode would do well to remember that Trump has been around. And Black people know him well enough that a few speeches here and there won’t change anyone’s mind.

Ghassan’s Prediction and the Emerging New Palestinian Reality

During the past year, I’ve had the pleasure of receiving visits from Ayman Odeh, Ahmad Tibi, and most recently Basel Ghattas–as they passed through Washington. All are Palestinian citizens of Israel. And all are Members of the Israeli Knesset, part of the Joint Arab List that won a record 13 seats in the last Israeli election. It was a delight to sit with them and learn from them not only about the difficulties they face, but the progress they have made.  

I have written about how I first became attached to the Arab community in Israel. It was the insightful Palestinian novelist, Ghassan Kanafani who caused me to divert my doctoral dissertation research from the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon to the Palestinian Arabs who remained in their homes after Israel was created in 1948. He gave me two reasons. While much had already been written about the refugees, there was an absence of good literature about the Palestinians “inside” and, he said, they are the most promising component group of the Palestinian people since they have been forged like steel in the hearth of Israel. Facing enormous difficulties, they have developed a uniquely progressive identity and, he believed, the day would come when they would be in a position to provide real visionary leadership for the entire Palestinian people.  

My meetings with Odeh, Tibi, and Ghattas have given me the sense that Ghassan may have been right. These are remarkable individuals, part of a larger movement that has faced down the increasingly repressive, ultra-nationalist Israeli government while defending their rights and securing their political role.

For the first three decades, the Arabs in Israel couldn’t form political parties or join unions (these were reserved for Zionists or Jews). They lived under a draconian and discriminatory legal system. They lost their lands to widespread confiscation. The Israeli educational system forced them to study Hebrew and Jewish history instead of their own language and history. And those who resisted, were imprisoned or forcibly expelled from the country.

Like other civil rights movements, these Palestinian citizens of Israel used every available opening to win their rights, facing down arrests, expulsions, and lethal violence. While tremendous problems remain, Palestinian citizens in Israel now form political parties, join unions, and teach their language and history. They still face systemic racism in housing, employment, education, allocation of the state’s budget, and many other areas–and yet they have built and sustained a fighting force that continues to press their demands for justice and equality.  

In creating their Joint List, the Palestinian citizens of Israel have forged a remarkable national unity bringing together diverse political currents: nationalists, traditionalists, and progressives–Muslims and Christians, alike. Netanyahu’s far-right governing coalition has stepped up its assault on the Arab community in an effort to divide them and break their resolve. Israel has created a fake new identity for Christians–in an effort to divide the Arabs on the basis of religion. They have charged some Arab Knesset Members with “incitement” for advocating on behalf of their Palestinian brethren living under the suffocating economic embargo imposed on Gaza. Israel has passed laws prohibiting Arabs and progressive Jews from supporting the non-violent boycott movement protesting Israel’s settlement policy and making it more difficult for them to receive grants from the EU to promote democracy and human rights. None of these repressive measures have broken their resolve or unity.

In addition to my earlier studies, I have, in recent years, polled the Palestinian Arab citizens in Israel, as well as the Palestinians living under occupation and those in exile. Of all of the component parts of the Palestinian people, the Arabs in Israel are the most forward looking and the most committed to achieving justice for the entire Palestinian people. And as I have watched Odeh, Tibi, and Ghattas in action, I have been impressed by their political savvy. Unlike the divided and visionless leadership of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, the members of the Joint list have vision, a sound political sense of tactics and strategy, and a demonstrated ability to connect with the people they serve. While it is correct to acknowledge that Israel has done everything it could to weaken, punish, discredit, divide, and tie-in-knots the Palestinian leadership under occupation, the Israelis have been no less harsh in the treatment meted out to their own Palestinian citizenry. In this context, it is significant to note that while the efforts of several Arab states have failed, it is fallen on the shoulders of the High Follow-Up Committee for Arab Citizens of Israel (the collective leadership of the Arab community in Israel) to launch an initiative to bring about reconciliation between the Palestinian factions of Fateh and Hamas.

I have just finished reading a compelling Haaretz article “Stop with the Nonsense that Palestinians Are a Minority In Israel”. The writer Gideon Levy argues that since Israel has refused to separate from the occupied territories and continues to entrench its settler colonies deeper into the heart of the West Bank and the Arab areas of what they call “Greater Jerusalem”, the “era of the two state solution [is drawing] to a close” and has been replaced by a de facto “bi-national state” in which the numbers of Jews and Arabs are roughly equal. In this new reality, Arabs are not a minority, they are half of the population.  

If this is to remain the case, and I see no evidence that the Netanyahu government will change direction or that any outside power will compel them to do so, then the Palestinian struggle will inevitably be transformed from one demanding independence into a movement demanding equal rights. This will merely be an extension of the fight that the “inside” Palestinians have been waging for seven decades. If this is to be the case, we may well see the day when the Palestinian citizens of Israel will emerge, as Kanafani predicted, as the new leadership of a unified Palestinian community fighting for justice and equality.

Thought-Provoking Questions

Often, when I am booked for lectures or radio and television interviews, I am provided questions in advance to help me prepare. Some of the questions are provocative, the kind that make me stop and think. So much so, I am sharing a few here with my replies.

1. What are three principles you live by?
a) “Identify the fear and then go there.” Usually I’m afraid because it is something I have never done before, and so I figure I will at least learn something new. I always ask myself: What is the worst-case scenario? If it’s one I can deal with, I go for it.
b) “Not everything worth doing is worth doing well.” Being stuck striving for perfection will not allow you to move on. For me, this pertains to writing. It is never finished and can always be improved upon. But at some point, it must be abandoned. Of course, this does not apply to everything; be sure to use discernment.
c) “Maintain an open mind.” I try to not be judgmental or assume that I know best. I listen and attempt to understand other points of view, seeing them in the contexts of culture and personality. When presented with a new opportunity, I ask myself: Will I learn something?

2. Do you believe nature or nurture has more impact?
People are born with specific tendencies; some children are shy, some are outgoing. This is a natural component of our genes, but then life experiences also impact our brains. Successes can reinforce behavior while failures discourage future attempts. So it is both. First it is nature, then nurture. Both have an equal influence.

3. What do you wish you knew then that you know now?
I wish I had not cared so much about what other people thought of me. As women, we try to please others more than necessary. Speak the truth as often as possible and be willing to be disliked, but respected.

4. What did you wish to be when you were a child?
My childhood dream was to be a poet. I won a poetry contest for a poem I wrote when I was eight. This early success inspired me to continue writing poems, which I still do today.

5. What role does luck play in success?
Obviously, luck plays a part–you have to be at the right place, at the right time, with the right people. However, success is also “opportunity meeting preparation.” I am always scanning my environment to look for ways to make a contribution and a difference.

6. What are the barriers to female leadership?
“MEN!” There is still gender discrimination, both conscious and unconscious, even by well-meaning men. Our culture continues to be dominated by male values, and, in the majority of cases, even when shown the same resume with a male or female name, men are chosen over women for both promotions and as new hires.

7. What was your biggest challenge?
a) Acceptance. As the only woman on the faculty of a business school, the first woman in a Rotary Club, the only female consultant in all-male organizations, I faced issues of acceptance. I did not try to blend in, as I knew this was not possible, so I stood out by wearing red suits, sitting on the arms of chairs to make me look taller (I am barely 5 feet tall).
b) A close second was being ignored–not only feeling invisible, but, also, not heard, and (when earned) not rewarded.

8. What changes in the workplace would you like to see?
I would like to see flexible working hours as a norm at work. This would permit time off not only for child-related needs, but, also, for the increasing needs of aging parents. Men must be provided with the same opportunity to take an equal share of these responsibilities without negative consequences in the workplace. What do you attribute your success to?
The willingness to ask the first question, using an assertive voice, looking others in the eye while conversing, giving credit when credit is due, looking and sounding confident (even when I do not feel that way), being well-prepared by knowing the agenda and relevant facts, and lastly, believing in myself.

9. What are the three rules you live by?
a) First of all, have fun. b) Do no harm. c) Be as helpful to as many people as possible.
I am urging you, my readers, to do the same. Think of each question as it relates to you, your values, philosophies, experiences, your life overall. Take time to answer these questions honestly and you might gain new insights–perhaps discover some unconscious motivations.

Trump’s Doctor Has An Amazing Explanation For That Bizarre Medical Report

Donald Trump’s personal physician told NBC News that he wrote a now-infamous medical report about the candidate in just five minutes.

Dr. Harold Bornstein, a gastroenterologist who has been Trump’s doctor for more than three decades, released a brief note last December declaring the reality TV star would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” The four-paragraph letter, which billed Trump’s health as “astonishingly excellent,” was far less detailed than medical reports traditionally released by presidential candidates. 

In an interview with NBC airing Friday, Bornstein said he spent “five minutes” on the letter while a car sent by Trump waited for him outside his office in Manhattan. 

“I get rushed and I get anxious when I get rushed, so I try to get four or five lines done as fast as possible,” Bornstein explained. “In a rush, I think some of those words didn’t come out exactly the way they were meant.”

The doctor stood by his assessment of the reality TV star’s wellness.

“His health is excellent, particularly his mental health,” he said. 

He also defended the claim that Trump would be the healthiest president in history.

“I like that sentence to be quite honest with you, and all the rest of them are either sick or dead,” he said. 

Watch the interview above.

Bornstein and his bizarre note have come under scrutiny again as Trump and his campaign surrogates have floated conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton’s health. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow pressed Trump campaign manager Kellyane Conway on the issue during an interview Thursday. 

“If he was elected, Donald Trump would be the oldest person to ever be sworn in as president,” Maddow said. “Whether or not he’s going to try to make Hillary Clinton’s health the issue, doesn’t he owe it to the American people to release an actual medical report, a more credible, more complete statement?”

Conway said “perhaps” he should release more information.

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.

Judge Crushes Efforts To Appeal Oscar Pistorius’ Lenient Sentence

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – South African Judge Thokozile Masipa on Friday rejected an application by state prosecutors to appeal Oscar Pistorius’ six-year murder sentence, saying the petition had no reasonable prospects of success.

Masipa had sentenced the Paralympic gold medallist in July for murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in 2013, but the prosecution had said the decision was too lenient.

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.

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.

A Gift For You: Walk In The Woods Meditation

2016-08-25-1472151034-8505504-WalkintheWoods.JPG
After decades of practicing meditation, four years of teaching happiness meditation classes and workshops, and now leading weekend retreats, I finally wrote my own guided meditation, “A Walk in the Woods.” Being in nature makes us happy, but it isn’t always possible to physically be outside drinking up the sights, sounds, and smells of a wooded trail. We can, however, savor the forest sensations mindfully by taking the time to mentally create or recreate that experience in as much detail as possible.

I was inspired by the local Trails Committee and by the transformative Helen Keller essay, Three Days to See. With gratitude to them, I offer the following meditation to you. Please make it your own. I’ve based the meditation on a summer walk in the Vermont woods, but your walk may be in the fall, spring or winter, on a real or imaginary trail. Create or recreate the experience that best suits you. The following is more a series of suggestions than a road map.

A Walk in the Woods

I invite you to start by easing into your meditation practice. With your eyes closed, let your breath out with an audible sigh. Do this several times if you like. Take a moment to notice all the places your body is in contact with the floor, chair, or cushions. Appreciate the support of the furniture and the building you are in, as well as the strength of the earth, making it safe for you to relax into your meditation time. Next, in an easy gentle fashion, focus on your breath, for a few minutes, until you feel ready to proceed. Take as much time with this transition as you want.

When you are ready, imagine you are at the trail head, ready to step in among the trees. Before you begin your walk, take time for gratitude. You may be grateful to have an able body. You might thank those who built the trail, or the landowners who share their property with the public. Perhaps your gratitude is for the weather, or for a strong pair of sneakers and good socks. What are you grateful for? Again, take your time. There is no need to hurry.

Remember to breathe.

Now, stepping into the woods, where do your feet land? What does the trail look like? Are there trail blazes or other markers on the trees? Who made them? Are there roots or rocks you might stumble over? Fallen branches? Are ferns or maybe even poison ivy growing near the trail? Is it a sunny day? What kinds of patterns does the play of light through the tree canopy make? Look around, what can you really see?

When we practice mindfulness, we can try to use all our senses. Right now, for example, what do you hear in your own little forest? Maybe leaves crunching underfoot? Or birds — is there a variety of bird calls if you really listen? Is it a still day, or is a breeze blowing? What does that sound like? Other animals? Insects whirring by your ear or chirping from afar? Maybe even traffic or construction noises off in the distance? Mindfulness is about more than appreciating beauty — it is, deeply observing what truly is.

Still breathing?

What does the air smell like? Did it rain recently? Are there rotting logs nearby? Do you smell your own shampoo, or toothpaste? Maybe there are flowers, or berries — do you want to lean in and breathe in their aroma?

And touch — is the air on your arms and face cool from the shade, or is it a hot sultry day even in the woods?

Even taste — did you bring a water bottle along? What does the water taste like? Any leftover meal flavors still lingering in your mouth? Did you pick a berry to eat? Was it sweet, sour, overripe?

Breathing deeper now, and looking more carefully around you. You’re surrounded by trees, but what species? Have any blown over, from the wind or maybe lightning? What bark do you see around you? Patterns? Growths on trees? Any holes in the trees? Perhaps holes made by animals, or perfect for animals to crawl into. And of course the leaves, or pine needles — different shapes, various shades of green? Are there also browns, and reds — trees in distress, or maybe autumn is coming on. It’s time to see the trees themselves, not just the forest. Are there any very old trees? Or very young ones? Any competing for the sunlight? What else?

Where would we be without trees? Can you feel gratitude for them?

Still remembering to breathe, turn now to the rocks and stones. Do you see ledge, or quartz? What sizes — boulders? Pebbles? Do you have to climb over any rocks? Are they moss-covered? Sharp, rounded? Maybe you can even spot one that is heart shaped.

Now we’re walking next to a mountain brook. Is your brook full and flowing forcefully? Maybe it just rained? Or is it late summer, with only a trickle? Pause and put your hand in. How cold is it? What does the brook sound like? What patterns do you see, in the way the water falls, and on the rocks below the surface? Linger by the brook as long as you’d like.

When you’re ready, notice that the trail is going up hill. What are the sensations in your muscles? Are you winded? Sweaty? Thirsty? How is your body doing on this hike? Or is it more of an easy going walk for you? Even on this mental journey, can you listen to your body’s experience?

In this moment, we’ve stepped out of the woods into a meadow. It may be sunny, or overcast. Is it hotter? Or is there a wind blowing, making your skin cooler? Looking up, what do you see in the skies? Have the sounds in the meadow changed from those in the woods? And sights — perhaps here you might see butterflies. What else is different on this part of the walk?

Finally we’ve arrived at an overlook, where conveniently there’s a bench to sit on and savor the view. What do you see? A lake in the distance? Mountains? A city? Is the view awe-inspiring? Does the larger vista give you a sense of place in the world, maybe putting your own cares in perspective? Can you pay attention to your feelings as well as the view? Just accepting your feelings, not trying to change them or judge them in any way.

Spend as long as you want sitting on the bench, taking in whatever is present for you in this moment.

Finally, let’s end this meditation the way we began: with gratitude. Grateful perhaps for beauty, for public policies that have preserved park land, for your own self to take this time to flex your mindfulness muscles and nurture your connection with the natural world. Who and what are you grateful for?

When you are ready, open your eyes and gently return to your regularly scheduled programming.

This Morning I Met
And Old Friend Returned
The Greed That Had Brought Him
The Trees That Had Burned …

He Carries A Message
So Bright And So Clear
Whatever Our Actions
Effects Will Appear …

In Kindness We Shower
Much Joy And Much Smiles
In Sharing Our Happiness
We Lessen Our Trials …

Compassion When Lacking
We Seek For Our Own
Without Ever Thinking
Our EGOs Have Grown …

Without Ever Knowing
No Sense Of This Greed
That Just Overwhelms Us
Polluting Our Seed …

Of Loving And Living
As Brothers In Tow
On Journeys Alongside
In Tandem To Flow …

But Ignorance Being
So Strong In Our Minds
Not Heeding The Call
Not Seeing How Blind …

So On This Very Morning
Through Grey Heavy Mist
So Deep In My Heart
My Prayer In Gist …

If Only Awareness
We Somehow Could Raise
Then Maybe Our Lives
Would Be Better Dear Haze ….

Seth Meyers Invokes Donald Trump’s Penis To Rip Immigration ‘Softening’

Folks are calling Donald Trump’s ever-evolving stance on immigration a “softening.”

“Late Night” host Seth Meyers on Thursday called ewwww on “softening,” and launched into a double-entendre-filled bit to prove his point.

“That’s right, Trump is softening, also known as flip flopping,” Meyers said in a Closer Look segment. “He’s  softening and flopping. He’s really sagging in the swing states. You see his poll percentage is down and he can’t seem to get it up. He can’t get any penetration in the, ah, I do not feel good doing this.”

Meyers continued in fine form breaking down the GOP nominee’s “softening” on immigration.

Ick, repeating the word doesn’t make it any easier to hear.

Watch above.

Obama Wears Virtual Reality Headset, Sparks Epic Photoshop Battle

President Barack Obama tried on a pair of virtual reality goggles, and people on the internet had a field day.

Chief White House photographer Pete Souza’s image of Obama looking slightly awkward while wearing the headset sparked an epic Photoshop battle on Reddit.

Some Redditors transformed Obama into a superhero, while others reimagined what it was that he was actually watching.

For the record, it was the Obama-narrated 360-degree National Geographic video called “Through The Ages,” which was shot earlier this year in Yosemite National Park

Why We Need To Make Space For Quiet Teachers

This article first appeared on QuietRev.com

As the ice-cold applesauce poured over my head, I kept telling myself that it was for the kids. My humiliation was their gain. I would be the cool, hip teacher who was willing to embarrass himself instead of the stodgy taskmaster with high standards.

But after the completion of the all-school rally, in which several teachers and I agreed to be slimed with applesauce by students who met specific academic goals, I just felt sticky, gross, and humiliated. This is how I was going to inspire and encourage the next generation?

I know now that attempt to be cool and hip was utterly useless. My teaching and interactions with students were none the better for participating in such sophomoric stunts. In fact, for the students in my class, it was more startling than supportive, particularly for the quiet, thoughtful ones who had bonded with me because they had finally found a teacher to whom they could relate. I was a safe space—a teacher who wouldn’t constantly nag them to “be more social” or pair them up with the struggling students to push them through their work when the quiet ones had finished their own. They were happy to do well, participate when needed, and carry on with being good students; they felt comfort in having found a quiet role model in me. My departure from my quiet self shocked them.

A larger push for collaboration

Sadly, such quiet students and teachers won’t be left alone much longer. There’s a growing movement in education to turn teachers into performers and students into non-stop collaborators. This is the effect of the Extrovert Ideal. Teachers are increasingly expected to be not just knowledgeable about content and good at the art and science of teaching but also outgoing and exciting on stage. It’s the Ron Clark method run amok: in meeting after meeting, I’d constantly hear the need to excite students with learning. Unfortunately, that meant entertaining them, which doesn’t always go hand in hand with appealing to their intellect.

Every couple of weeks a YouTube video goes viral of a teacher dancing with their class orperforming a hip hop routine, which is supposed to show how well the students learned the content and bonded with their teacher. The problem is that sometimes learning isn’t that exciting. You may not have enjoyed grammar rules or algebraic problem solving, but for such disciplines, persistent focus is good for the mind. Deliberate practice and the road to mastery can be thrilling, but not for the entertainment value.

Oftentimes, the best teachers are exactly the opposite of those dancers above. Think of the patient but firm and knowledgeable sage who may have guided you to a breakthrough when you were interpreting the events of history, struggling to understand a challenging piece of literature, or trying to interpret data in the lab. And even if you’re an extrovert, you may have come to value that time alone to think through a problem. As has been noted, the best and most innovative thinking often comes to us when we are alone.

A tough road for quiet students

The outlook isn’t bleak just for quiet teachers. Introverted students are pushed more and more towards group work and collaboration throughout the school day. Movements like the flipped classroom and blended learning encourage students to constantly find a solution together. Group writing, problem solving, and presentations are the future. Yes, these play a part in the world of work. However, such demands will leave our quiet students exhausted by the end of the day. And quiet teachers will be forced to facilitate a nonstop parade where no one will learn the ability to take time to reflect.

This is unfortunate because introverts bring a lot of good to the teaching profession: we value deep and meaningful conversations and content. Tackling a complex math problem after patiently and silently assessing the problem yourself causes the learning to stick far more than chatting with a partner about what methods to employ. And everyone has been in that group where a couple of people struggle through the work while trying to wrangle the others to stay on task. Introvert teachers cherish taking and granting quiet time to think—something that students are being robbed of in the push for working with groups and partners. Worst of all, quiet students face little autonomy as more lessons are designed to elevate the Extrovert Experience. Parents of quiet children may have to watch out for social burnout or even consider a different placement if things become too overwhelming.

What are quiet teachers to do?

Whether teacher or student, an introvert finds it tough enough to be in today’s classroom. Even when you value your students, want the best for them, and have structured your classroom to include both quiet and group activities, there’s a small relief at sending them off at the end of the day. But if everything moves to a model that requires a teacher to be on stage and pushing conversation all the time, the job may be untenable for those with a quiet temperament.

Quiet teachers will have to find ways to carve out time for themselves when they can even if it means declining lunch invites or using that rare prep time to reflect on their practices. If it comes down to it, have a ready-made list of alternative obligations in your mind to ensure you get the quiet time you need: you may need to catch up on grading, plan for a parent conference, or finish up an independent study packet for a student about to go on vacation. In a profession where being social is a significant part of the day, you have to allow yourself moments to catch your breath. There’s also value in just being upfront with those with whom you work: people can be surprisingly understanding if you tell them that you just need a little time alone to recharge.

Yet, there’s also value in seeking out fellow introverted teachers as a way to build camaraderie and generate new ideas. Additionally, a tiny drop of rebellion is sometimes a good thing: bucking the extrovert trend by building in reflective time for students will not only benefit the introverts in class but provide some needed thinking time for everyone.

Extroverts certainly deserve the ability to interact with one another and engage in collaborative efforts during the school day. It’s not that this shouldn’t be a component of education. It’s just the scale is tipping profoundly in one direction. Forcing introverted kids and teachers to live as extroverts throughout the day would be the equivalent of asking all the extroverts to take a vow of silence. Finding the right balance and meeting everyone’s needs is the right approach, which is what education is supposed to be about.

Your Body Knows Best

Your Body Knows Best


There’s no one-size-fits-all diet, says author Ann Louise Gittleman (Supernutrition for Women, Beyond Pritikin). That’s why some people will drop 25 pounds on fad diets while others will actually gain weight, and why some folks thrive on an ultra-low-fat diet while they make others feel like collapsing. Gittleman says there are some foods that everyone should avoid, such as refined sugar, margarine, and white flour products, but figuring out which foods are good for you is a bit more complicated. She’s drawn upon her extensive nutritional background and found that three factors combine to determine which customized diet you should follow. One of these factors is heritage; those with a Scandinavian, Irish, or Welsh ancestry need more essential fatty acids than others, such as those found in cold-water fish. The other two are metabolic rate (some people just burn food more quickly than others) and blood type (type O is the oldest blood type, and therefore folks who are type O should avoid dairy foods and other items introduced late in the evolutionary scheme of things). She includes a questionnaire to determine how fast you metabolize food, and a week’s worth of sample menus to guide you along the appropriate eating plan for your particular profile. Gittleman also debunks the “fat is the root of all evil” diet myth by explaining how fat actually boosts immune function and aids weight loss.

GOP Climate Denier To Celebrate Park Service Centennial Amid Melting Glaciers

Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), a self-proclaimed climate change “skeptic,” is scheduled to visit Montana’s Glacier National Park on Thursday in celebration of the National Park Service’s 100th birthday.

Daines, who would deny that humans are responsible for drastic, well-documented environmental changes at the park, will be surrounded by magnificent mountain peaks and rapidly melting glaciers.

Daines’ office announced his trip in an email advisory Wednesday, saying the senator would join other Instagram users at a park “InstaMeet,” an event that brings park visitors together to “make friends, take photos, and exchange ideas.”

The idea that man-made climate change is fueling the retreat of the park’s namesake glaciers, however, is likely not something Daines will be entertaining. 

In a 2014 interview with Montana Public Radio, Daines said “the jury is still out” about whether fossil fuels contribute to climate change. He said he’s seen “very good data” suggesting there are other contributing factors, including solar cycles. 

“Climate change,” Daines told the radio station, “is very real. The climate is always changing, it’s either warming or it’s cooling. The climate is dynamic, it’s not static … I think the question certainly is what part does man-made climate change factor [into] this equation, certainly with CO2 and greenhouse gases. And I think there’s just still reasonable debate here, whether or not it is a significant part of this or not.”

That kind of comment makes most climate scientists cringe. Studies suggest that 97 percent or more of scientists who are actively publishing research believe climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities.

A visit to Glacier National Park is a front-row seat to the severity of the problem. In 1850, there were roughly 150 glaciers in the area. Today, there are just 25, many “mere remnants of what they once were,” according to the National Park Service. 

“If the current rate of warming persists, scientists predict the glaciers in Glacier National Park will be completely gone by the year 2030, if not earlier,” the park service writes on its website.

In a Facebook Live interview with The Huffington Post this week, Bill Nye “The Science Guy” said that during a recent trip to Glacier, park rangers told him they expect all the glaciers to be gone in five or six years.

“So it will be Sandy Hillside National Park,” Nye joked.

For anyone who runs into Daines on Thursday, ask if he’s concerned about the park losing the glaciers that have carved its landscape and have drawn more than 100 million visitors.

Daines’ office did not respond to The Huffington Post’s request for comment Wednesday.

In April, Daines was among more than two dozen Republican senators who asked Secretary of State John Kerry to cut funding for the United States’ involvement in United Nations effort to address climate change.

Donald Trump Spoils Ann Coulter’s ‘In Trump We Trust’ Book Launch

Ann Coulter’s new book is called “In Trump We Trust,” but the conservative pundit might already be regretting that title.

There’s nothing Trump can do that won’t be forgiven,” she wrote in her book. “Except change his immigration policies.”

Trump did just that on Wednesday night with a plan to offer legal status to undocumented immigrants, an announcement that came the very same night Coulter held her book launch party.

She did not look like she was in a forgiving mood: 

At first, Coulter was ready to offer excuses 

It’s just rhetoric, but it’s still annoying,” she told The Hill. “I think he panicked and he had to say [it] … I don’t think he is softening. I mean the big thing is the wall.”

But later on Twitter, Coulter tore into the policy, comparing it to previous offers that come conservatives have dismissed as amnesty. 

Needless to say, Coulter’s critics seized on the opportunity:

We Must Learn to Tell Narratives That Make Us Better – Not Divide Us

By Bruce Janz
UCF Forum columnist

Every four years we turn to our TVs and online sites to cheer on competitors vying for supremacy in an arena where the rules are often unclear and scandal is rife. We hope for an uplifting narrative that shows the best of who we can be, which gives us all something to strive for, but more often than not the narrative degenerates into stories that divide us.

No, I’m not talking about the presidential race. I’m talking about the Summer Olympics. And the narratives I’m interested in are not the ones created by the athletes themselves, but rather by the media.

The Nielsen ratings for this year’s Olympics were down about 17 percent from the London Games in 2012. There are many possible reasons – Americans might prefer watching the games in another English-speaking country; people are watching on screens that Nielsen has a harder time tracking; interest in the Olympics among younger viewers has been waning; television watching in general has declined, especially among younger viewers.

NBC has the contract for Olympic coverage, both summer and winter games until 2032, to the tune of $ 12 billion. And it has contracts guaranteeing to advertisers a household percentage rating in the high teens during prime time. It averaged a 15.4 rating, lower than hoped for, although the night that Usain Bolt won gold in the 100 meters and Simone Biles won gold in the vault, the rating went up to 17.4.

Ratings are obviously about money, but I am more interested in the kinds of narratives that seem to draw those ratings. In the United States we love to see stories of those overcoming personal challenges or hardship to win. We generally love to see winners win more, at least if we like them as people – that is if they are great characters.

NBC’s strategy for coverage has been controversial for some. It has emphasized the human drama, even the reality-show nature of the competitions, as opposed to the sports themselves. Scandal sells, as does a recognizable cast of characters fitting defined roles.

They have been criticized for diminishing the significance of the successes of women and racial minorities. These narratives, in other words, can have an inertia to them, and can be slow to change to recognize new characters and new audiences. Simone Manuel’s gold medal in the 100 meter freestyle swimming event is a narrative full of significance, but only if we recognize that it happened against the background of racial exclusion in the United States.

Mount Olympus was where the gods of the ancient Greeks lived. More importantly, it was the focal point for their myths. We think of myths as stories that aren’t true, but in fact, myths are stories that make sense of our world, that help us to give a narrative to our world. They help to tell us who is friend and who is foe, what happens if we stray too far from the accepted practices of our people, and how the world is put into the order it has. We might think that we now have science, and so we don’t need these myths. But in fact we now just tell myths about science, as well as about everything else.

These myths we have are not just hard-wired into our culture. They are repeated over and over in different ways, and that makes them seem natural, but what they really are is familiar and comforting. In a world of uncertainty, it is good to see Michael Phelps and Simone Biles do exactly what we expected they would do.

But being open to new narratives, even ones that do not fit our comfortable patterns, are absolutely essential. Simone Manuel’s medal brings up narratives of race in the United States. Non-African-Americans must find space for those narratives as well, not just as another gold medal but as a triumph over racial barriers.

For the first time ever, the International Olympic Committee decided to honor the competitive spirit of refugees by allowing them to compete without a country. We must be able to honor their ability to rise above their circumstances, but then also include in the narrative the question of why these capable people ended up as refugees in the first place, and how our refugee policies could improve the lives of those like them. We need to be open to Muslim women competing in hijabs – their athleticism is the real story.

So Gabby Douglas didn’t hold her hand over her heart during the national anthem. There is no rule, and many other athletes didn’t do it at other times. But there was a narrative, a myth about what makes a real American, and for some people, at least, her little action in that moment was enough to question her loyalty. Years of dedication on her part apparently meant nothing in comparison to that action.

Our narratives define us, but we have to do better on telling which ones make us better and which just diminish us.

And, we have to do better on listening and hearing new narratives, those that matter to others around us, rather than just fitting their stories into the ones we already have. We’re all richer when we can empathize with these stories.

The #1 Nutrient You Need To Avoid A Stroke

Quick: What foods are rich in potassium? If you’re drawing a blank, you could be missing out on important protection from stroke, particularly ischemic stroke—the type caused by a blockage in a blood vessel supplying the heart.

Women are more likely than men to have a stroke and to die from it. But a recent study of more than 90,000 women ages 50 to 70 from New York’s Albert Einstein College of Medicine found that those who consumed the highest amounts of potassium in their diet were least likely to experience a stroke. Potassium-rich diets reduced stroke risk in general by 12 percent and the risk of ischemic stroke by 16 percent. 

The benefit was even greater among women who did not have hypertension, or high blood pressure. In this subset of women, high potassium levels lowered the risk for all types of strokes by 21 percent and by 27 percent for ischemic stroke, compared to women with hypertension.

Other research has linked high potassium levels to lower blood pressure, which helps prevent stroke. But the study showed that potassium itself reduces stroke risk. “We think the beneficial effects act through other pathways, beyond the effects on blood pressure,” says study author Sylvia Wassertheil-Smoller, Ph.D., an epidemiologist at Albert Einstein and a principal investigator with the Women’s Health Initiative.

Unfortunately, both women and men fall far short of the recommended levels for potassium, which is needed for many body functions including heart and muscle function. “In the study, the average potassium intake from foods was 2611 mg/day,” says Wassertheil-Smoller. “That’s well below the recommended amount of 4700 mg/day by the Department of Agriculture or even the lower recommended amount of 3600 mg/day by the World Health Organization.”  

Dependence on fast and processed food appears to be the culprit. “Many people don’t get enough potassium because they rely on convenience and restaurant foods and aren’t eating enough fruits and vegetables, which are rich sources of potassium,” says Alissa Rumsey, R.D., a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Yet, “potassium is pretty ubiquitous,” says Wassertheil-Smoller. “Foods rich in potassium are bananas, orange juice, yogurt, potatoes, unprocessed meats, and green, leafy vegetables like spinach.” Winter squash, sweet potatoes, white beans, halibut, broccoli, cantaloupe, pork tenderloin, lentils, milk, salmon, pistachios, raisins, chicken breast, and tuna boast especially plentiful potassium stores.

To boost your intake of this heart-healthy nutrient, Rumsey suggests aiming to consume at least five servings per day of fruits and vegetables and eat more fish and legumes. These measures can help you reach this goal:

  • Steam or roast a good supply of vegetables on Sunday, and use them for lunch and dinner during the week.
  • Keep fresh fruit around your home or office, and snack on it instead of processed snack foods like crackers or chips.
  • Aim to eat at least two to three servings of fatty fish per week.
  • Add beans or lentils to salads, soups, and stir-fries.
  • When dining out, order a salad, bean-based dishes, fish, fruit side dish, or steamed or roasted vegetables.
  • Drink low-fat milk instead of soda.

Donald Trump’s fear that the election could be rigged ― and Karl Rove’s new assessment of Hillary Clinton’s health ― prompted “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert to give us the lowdown on conspiracy theories.

On Wednesday, he introduced “Stephen Colbert’s Tinfoil Hat,” and it’s a segment brought to you by Reynolds Wrap: “Keeping government signals out of your brain since 1999.”

Colbert gave Rove (and Fox News’ Megyn Kelly) the business and got to the bottom of Clinton’s “secret illness” by investigating the spelling of her name. You’ll have to watch for the big reveal.

Then the paranoia fest really accelerated.

“Bowling balls and electrical outlets both have three holes,” he said. “But for some reason you’re not supposed to put your fingers in one of them or your penis in either of them. What do they not want us to experience?”

We’d love to hear Trump’s and Rove’s explanation.

Sorry, Donald–A Woman Campaign Manager Doesn’t Make You Any Less Misogynist

For the first time, a Republican presidential candidate has named a woman as campaign manager. It’s a bit late — Susan Estrich and Donna Brazile got there decades ago on the Democratic side. Still, I keep hearing that it’s a mark of progress, which will appeal to women voters, that Kellyanne Conway is Donald Trump’s new campaign manager.

I can’t agree.

The fact is that the Trump campaign is so steeped in misogyny that appointing a woman as campaign manager won’t be nearly enough to convince women to vote for him. Especially a woman with Conway’s extremist views.

Consider this, from an article in Jezebel:

To get a sense of Conway’s perspective on gender and the “gender gap,” take the speech she gave to the Conservative Women’s Network in 2011, an event co-sponsored by the very conservative Clare Boothe Luce Foundation and Heritage Foundation. In the speech, Conway bemoans feminism as “gloom and doom,” and argues that “femininity is replacing feminism as a leading attribute for American women.” She then continues with some familiar talking points for conservative women, namely that hating men (“the revulsion towards men in your life”) is “part and parcel of the feminist movement.” She also shares some helpful fashion tips like, “If women want to be taken seriously in the workforce, looking feminine is a good place to start.”

Kellyanne Conway has made a career out of trying to help far right-wing candidates get votes from women, despite the fact that they consistently promote anti-woman policies. Her roster of clients includes Todd Akin, the former U.S. Congressman and failed Senate candidate. As readers may recall, Akin justified criminalizing all abortions, including when the pregnancy results from rape, this way: “It seems to be, first of all, from what I understand from doctors, it’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down.”

After Akin lost the election, Conway counseled Republican conservatives to simply stop talking about rape — not that they should rethink their wildly unpopular ideas to ban all abortions under all circumstances. She likes to say, “we need to address women from the waist up,” meaning, stay away from discussions about reproductive health care. But if she thinks evasiveness will fool women voters, she should think again.

While Conway has been the most visible public face of the Trump campaign in recent days, appearing on TV almost as many times as her boss used to, reportedly the political strategy is being shaped by Breitbart’s Steve Bannon (the darling of the white nationalist “alt-right” crowd) and disgraced former Fox News chief Roger Ailes (who stands accused of horrific serial sexual harassment).

According to Politico:

“Kellyanne is not a campaign manager in the traditional sense of the word. She got the title as part of combat pay,” said one source involved with the discussions. “She’s the candidate manager, which considering how tough it is to manage someone like Donald — who has the temperament of a 12-year-old who always gets what he wants — is a far harder job.”

By all accounts, Conway is smart and talented. But to bring women voters on board, she will need to do a lot more than manage her candidate. The problem is not simply how he comes across — although certainly it is a huge drawback that he is seen as a racist, xenophobic, misogynistic man with the emotional self-control of a spoiled child. An even greater problem is that this spoiled child has truly terrible policy ideas.

  • Trump opposes sensible gun regulations, even though the risk of a domestic violence homicide is five times greater when there is a gun in the house.
  • Trump’s idea of child care assistance is to give big tax breaks to the wealthiest families, leaving those who need help the most — women in lower-income categories — with little or nothing.
  • Trump’s advice to women who face sexual harassment at work is to go find another career.
  • Trump wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act, ending the requirement of full coverage for birth control, bringing back coverage denials for “pre-existing conditions,” and forcing millions of women and their families to lose their health insurance altogether.
  • Trump supports overturning Roe v. Wade, even though according to a recent survey 53 percent of people who identify as pro-life say they want Roe to remain the law of the land, and acknowledged that “there has to be some form of punishment” for women seeking abortions.

No amount of spin can overcome this reality: Women voters are all too familiar with the authentic Donald J. Trump; that is why they reject him. At the end of the day, they are as turned off by his anti-woman policies as by his calling women “disgusting,” “bimbos,” and “fat pigs.”

We can all be happy for Kellyanne Conway that when the history of this campaign is written, she will be remembered as a pioneering Republican who broke an important gender barrier. But that doesn’t give her a pass on matters of judgement, policy or philosophy.

Two Keys Why You Don’t Receive & How to Shift It!

Have you ever wondered why you struggle receiving the things you want? I see this a lot in my coaching practice and with my students. In fact, I would say that receiving is one of the key issues most people face. I would like to share with you some thoughts that might help you break out of this painful cycle.

Here are the two core reasons I’ve seen over and over again that shut people down to receiving:

1. We are brought up to believe that receiving is wrong. For some, this belief stems in religion, and for others it begins in the home.

There is a tendency in religion to push the belief that being of service means you must deny yourself. In other words, don’t receive. But when you live by this belief, you shut down to taking the time to go within and connect to God. This is where you get the guidance you need to live life in the flow with grace and ease.

Even if your family wasn’t religious, you might have been brought up in a home in which your mom and dad gave themselves up to take care of your needs. They set the example that it wasn’t okay to receive. This is why it’s so important for parents to love themselves. They don’t realize that they are perpetuating a cycle of pain for their kids to grow up and do the same.

2. Feeling bad about one’s self is the second reason most people don’t receive. If you have beliefs, whether conscious or hidden, that tell you something is wrong with you or that you have to act a certain way to receive, you’ll stay shut down to having miracles show up. This is why it’s so important to do the inner work of cleaning up subconscious beliefs. As you chip away at each of them and raise your Worthiness Quotient to inner abundance, you attract outer abundance and miracles.

I share a story of Cassie in my book, The Enlightened Mom, and her awakening to the importance of receiving. Cassie had attended my weekly live Enlightened Mom class, focusing on helping the ladies release subconscious beliefs so they could finally love themselves unconditionally and open up to receive. From the very first session, most of the moms were having breakthroughs and seeing miracles show up in their daily lives. But Cassie was different. She was mired in the negativity of her mind and really struggled with receiving.

For the last session of our class, we went to a local bookstore and sat on the patio. I invited the ladies to take a moment and go within to get grounded and connected to God before going into the store. Their mission was to allow God to guide them and to open up to receive a message.

Cassie was the first one back to the patio! With tear-filled eyes and joy that was palpable, she shared the incredible messages she received, one after the other from the pages of a book she had been guided to pick up. Cassie exclaimed, “I get it now! I used to ask God for guidance and would get so angry because I never got answers. Now I realize the messages were always there. All I had to do was give myself permission to open up and receive them!”

Cassie had been mired in false beliefs about receiving. She gradually chipped away at some of those beliefs during our class. But it wasn’t until that day at the bookstore that she finally realized a huge truth:

You are the one who determines whether you receive.


2016-08-24-1472065296-5598401-15278638_s.jpg

Are you like Cassie was? Are you shut down to receiving the love, guidance and support you seek to make life a joyful flow?

If your answer is yes, it is time to look within. Do you have religious programming that says to be of service you must not receive? Or did you grow up in a family in which your parents put themselves on the backburner, giving you an example that this is love?

To be able to give freely, you must learn to receive. You can’t truly be of service if you’re coming from an empty cup.

Here are three simple steps to open up to receive:

1. Give yourself permission to receive. You are the boss of your life. If you’re not receiving a life of grace and ease, it’s because you’re still making others the authority of your life.

2. Take time daily to connect. Spend time in meditation, prayer, journaling or whatever works for you, but by all means, connect. This is a powerful way to set your inner compass to receiving.

3. Be you! Pay attention to when you shut down your voice, your feelings and your needs. Then give yourself permission to share these things. If you struggle with this, go within and clean up the beliefs that stop you down. By loving yourself unconditionally, you send out an energetic message to the universe that says, “I deserve to receive simply for being me!”

Receiving is the loving thing to do. As you transition into this new belief, you will feel loved, guided and supported. You will shift from lack to abundance. And your life will flow magically with grace and ease.

Receiving is an act of service.

As you give yourself permission to receive, your cup will be so full that you’ll want everyone else to feel the way you do. You’ll serve others by lifting them up. You’ll want to give like never before. Your life will be your greatest act of service.

Terri Britt is a spiritual coach, inspirational speaker, former Miss USA, and the award-winning author of The Enlightened Mom. Are you ready to open up and receive?

4 Things People Who Are Grieving Want You To Know

Whether it’s triggered by a tragic event or the loss of a loved one, grief is a part of the human experience that we will all have to endure. 

But however universal that haunting sadness is, grieving is an isolating, complicated process that can be very difficult to understand. That’s why it can be helpful to be armed with as much information as possible to help you or someone you love carry on through trying times.

Below are a few things people experiencing this complex emotion would want you to know:

1. Grief is not one emotion, but a collection of emotions.

Feelings of yearning and sorrow define grief, but most grieving people will also experience anxiety, guilt, anger or shame, according to Katherine Shear, program director for Columbia University’s Center for Complicated Grief. Grief can also include positive emotions ― someone may feel relief, for example, after losing a loved one who was ill or burdensome ― which makes the grieving process all the more complex.

“Grief is not a single emotion, but rather contains a compendium of emotions, both negative and positive,” Shear said during a 2014 panel on grief and depression. And this spectrum of feelings can help an individual move forward.

“Overall,” Shear continued, “many complex and varying emotional, cognitive and behavioral changes are entailed in making the adaptation needed to come to terms with the loss and to re-envision the future after bereavement.”

2. People grieve in different ways ― and that’s OK.

Grieving is a personal journey. While one person may choose to be surrounded by friends or family during a time of sadness or loss, another individual may prefer solitude. The only correct way to grieve is the one that best fits the individual’s unique needs. 

“Not understanding the individuality of grief could complicate and delay whatever grief we might experience from our own loss,” grief counselor Jinny Tesik wrote for the nonprofit Suicide Awareness Voices of Education. “It could also influence us, should we attempt to judge the grieving of others.”

However, if you or someone you know begins abusing alcohol or drugs as a way to suppress or control the painful feelings of grief, it may be time to step in. If an individual needs help with substance abuse or mental health issues, call 800-662-HELP (4357) for the SAMHSA National Helpline.

3. When grief is prolonged and significantly more painful, it is a condition known as “complicated grief.”

Most grief gradually dissipates without the need for therapy or professional counseling. Complicated grief, however, involves severe grieving that is especially long, debilitating and gets worse over time, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Symptoms of this deep level of grief go beyond the typical anxiety and mourning experienced with normal grief, and include intense sorrow at the thought of a lost loved one, an obsession with the tragic event, detachment, feelings of bitterness, lack of trust in others and an inability to enjoy life. An estimated 15 percent of people who lose a loved one will experience complicated grief, according to Yale University psychologist Holly Prigerson.

If you or someone you care about is experiencing this type of grief, Mayo Clinic recommends seeking professional help or counseling for relief, especially if the grieving person is at risk for self-harm.

4. Grief isn’t always something to conquer. It can be something you learn to live with.

After a period of grieving ends, the emotions don’t simply disappear forever. Sometimes, an event or an image can trigger a memory of a loved one, causing feelings of sadness, longing and loss.

“As time passes, the intensity of feelings about the loss will lessen… But you’re not going to get over it because that’s impossible: You cannot erase emotional memory,” Mary C. Lamia, a clinical psychologist, wrote in 2011 blog for Psychology Today.

Some researchers even argue that one cannot return to a prior emotional state after a significant loss.

“Besides, it’s not about achieving closure,” Lamia wrote on Psychology Today. “Instead you have to figure out what you are going to do when your emotional memories are later triggered.”

Though it’s impossible to predict how loss will affect any one person, working through that loss is something we will all experience. Be respectful of your own grieving process, as well as that of others. And, above all, if you feel like you or someone you know needs help, don’t be afraid to ask for it.

Your Pregnancy Week by Week: Updated 6th Edition

Your Pregnancy Week by Week: Updated 6th Edition


Pregnancy should be a time of wonder and hope, but these days, it’s associated more often with paranoia. Dr. Glade Curtis is keenly aware of the anxieties heaped upon expectant women: he has written several pregnancy-related books. So while he covers pretty much any topic that an expectant mom might be concerned about, he does not overload the reader with extraneous information or horror stories that can be found in that other best-selling pregnancy guide. In this completely revised and updated edition, Curtis describes the physical developments from weeks 1 through 40–or 41 or 42!–such as the size and weight of the baby, emotional changes in the mother, typical medical tests offered, and nutritional requirements. (The iron found in prenatal vitamins may exacerbate morning sickness, he writes, because iron supplementation is usually not needed until the final trimester.) It is too bad that Dr. Curtis does not recommend more alternative-medicine approaches for treating common pregnancy discomforts. In the chapter covering Week 8, he rightly describes sciatic-nerve pain as excruciating, but does not advise yoga or chiropractic treatments for its relief. However, he *is* hip to the use of doulas, or labor coaches, he encourages breastfeeding, and includes numerous tips for making your partner feel included in what should be a thrilling experience for you both. –Erica Jorgensen

Stephen Colbert Has Finally Figured Out Hillary Clinton’s Illness

With Donald Trump accusing Hillary Clinton of being too frail to be president, and wacky health theories flying out of the GOP presidential candidate’s camp and beyond, “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert decided to spend time on Tuesday diagnosing the Democratic nominee.

And wouldn’t you know it, Clinton has something that afflicts about half the planet.

Addressing her critics, Colbert said, “You’re just tiptoeing around the medical condition that you’re really upset about, one that she has that no other president in history has ever faced. Hillary Clinton has Chronic No-Penis.”

“It’s congenital,” Colbert added. “…Every woman in her family has had the same thing.”

The No-Longer-Necessary Apology To Donald Trump

Three weeks ago, when I was briefly worried that Donald Trump could in fact be elected president, I began drafting a faux “apology” to the clown prince of politics.

My thinking was, hey, the guy has a chance to win, and he is such an unstable, vengeful, petty little man that, even if he and his people are utterly unaware of who I am, best not to get on his Russia-sized bad side in case he ever became the most powerful person in the world.

I was going to ask his forgiveness for calling him — as so many others have — a narcissistic, misogynistic xenophobe. I mean, after all, those words kinda sound made up, don’t they? Don’t be mad at me, Donald.

I was going to ask him to overlook my strong suggestions that he was insane and the seemingly very proud owner of so many personality disorders that we no longer could track them in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. (And although others had suggested his severe emotional pathology, I am pleased to say I was one of the early one, way back in the summer of 2015.)

But then, his implosions began to pile up even faster than they had in the primary season, and it became increasingly clear that, while anything is still possible, it is no longer reasonable to worry about Donald winning in November.

The turning point for me wasn’t his attack on the Khan family, as absurdly offensive as that was, but rather his response when he was asked if he had sacrificed anything, in response to Gold Star father Khizr Khan’s challenge that Trump had sacrificed nothing and no one. It bears repeating in full:

“I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures. I’ve done ― I’ve had ― I’ve had tremendous success. I think I’ve done a lot.

2016-08-16-1471377071-2319988-trumpsacrifice.jpe

I did a double-take. Did he hear the question? Does he know what the word “sacrifice” means? Did he have a mini stroke? Leaving aside how incoherent that statement was — and trying to decipher Trump’s incoherence is better left to code breakers from World War II — Donald on the topic of sacrifice was such a perfect encapsulation of the man’s mental and emotional deficiencies that I breathed a sigh of relief. Surely this guy can’t be elected, I hoped.

His comments about his own sacrifice reveal everything: His inability to talk about anything except his greatness and the failure of his enemies. His uncanny knack for being unable to express himself well, despite his obvious brilliance that he reminds us of daily. His belief that every offensive statement he makes is really just an opportunity to clarify how magnanimous he is.

Millions have and still will back his candidacy of fact-bending, name-calling and revenge for every minor slight. The legions who are scared — perhaps quite justifiably in their minds — that the country of their parents and grandparents no longer looks familiar to them. The Hillary haters. The just plain haters who see this puffy, inarticulate blowhard billionaire with a beautiful wife and cleaned up children, as a permissible, safe transporter for their hate.

Tom Friedman wrote on August 10, Trump is “a disgusting human being. His children should be ashamed of him.”

That’s a good start, Tom, but not nearly enough.

Trump supporters should be ashamed of him. They should be ashamed of themselves.

They should be ashamed for the old, bitter white man in North Carolina who sucker punched a young black man being escorted out of a Trump rally. They should be ashamed for the man who told Univision anchor – and American citizen – Jorge Ramos to “get out of my country” way back in August of 2015.

They should be ashamed that they are so in love with a man who defines anything decent and compassionate towards other human beings as “political correctness.”

2016-08-16-1471377132-3201973-trumpsupporters.jpe

They should be ashamed of backing a man with no filter, no decency, no empathy, no ability to apologize, to admit he was wrong. They should be ashamed of their complicity in trying to turn back the country 50 years, or more, of seeing diversity as a challenge to their lives, of believing illegal immigrants will doom the country, of shouting from the rooftops about the very rare, and tragic, crimes committed by undocumented aliens while ignoring Dylan Roof and James Holmes and Adam Lanza.

Donald has begun the self-destruction process that will likely last until November. But I’m no longer worried about the need to apologize to Trump. I’m now waiting for Trump to apologize to all of us.

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.

Bali High

2016-08-23-1471979701-4140362-BaliHigh2.jpg

Although I’ve been home from Bali several weeks, I keep dreaming I’m there…the sounds, the smells, images of the people wash over me:

  • The beauty of this island full of flowers and smiling faces.
  • The gamelan music, an orchestra of percussion instruments, bells and bamboo flutes that mimic the sounds of a Bali morning – insects, birds, roosters, ocean waves.
  • The scent of incense lingering from the daily offerings of carefully crafted coconut or palm frond containers full of colorful flowers, offered to appease the lower gods and honor the higher gods.
  • The chaos of cars, trucks and motorbikes carrying whole families and goods to market passing within inches on narrow roads – made safe by the gentle toot or toot-toot that signals passing.

Immersed in the Balinese culture for two weeks, I was reminded there are so many good ways to live. We visited my friend Susan, a psychologist, who lives in Bali. There is no work for her among the locals. They are too happy. Traveling with my daughter Lisa, we mused about what keeps the people contented. Lisa wrote about it in her blog: What the Balinese do for Anxiety.

As part of their Hindu Buddhist religion, as Lisa describes, everyone prepares and dedicates offerings to the gods. Every day. In every home, store and village. Before picking us up, our drivers prayed in their family temples for our safe trips. Children learn very young to play in a gamelan orchestra, and to dance the traditional Balinese dances. The dancing is complex, physically difficult, using every body part including head and eyes, in still and flowing patterns to the sound of the gamelan, each movement carrying meaning. The dances act out familiar stories that are sometimes funny, always teaching moral lessons. Characters include the gods of good and mischief and evil. Beautifully carved sacred masks and elaborate costumes are integral to the dances.

We saw several Balinese dance performances, and one night we were treated to another traditional form of theater – a shadow puppet show. Behind the screen, which we were invited to visit, was an entire family supporting the puppeteer. He told a piece of the traditional Ramayana story – an ancient, epic Hindu story. However, he improvised the telling for the audience (our small group of Americans.) He made it modern and relevant to us, including references to surprising things like Pokemon Go!

Steeped in tradition, ritual and shared beliefs, the Balinese are warm, relaxed and friendly. Good humor abounds. They seem untroubled by questions like, “Who am I?” “Where do I belong?” and “How can I feel safe?” Those questions are answered in the context of their daily lives, living with family, belonging to compound and village, doing the daily rituals, sharing in the many large ceremonies and celebrations.

Bali is an open-hearted culture. Thinking of it makes me happy. I hope my Bali dreams continue.

Since coming home, I’ve been asking myself questions: how might we build ritual and tradition more solidly into our daily lives? How open-hearted is the United States? And – what might be an American equivalent to the gentle, respectful horn toots on the highways that keep people calm, safe and cared for?

COACHING QUESTIONS

  1. What new perspective have you gained from visiting other cultures (here or in other countries?)
  2. What rituals or traditions do you practice in your life?
  3. How do they help you feel safe and connect you with others?
  4. What rituals/traditions would you like to create in your life?
  5. When will you start?
  6. How do you contribute to the open-heartedness of your culture?

P.S. I promised to follow up on how well StopJetLag worked. It worked! Stopped jetlag in its tracks. Lisa and I recommend it heartily.

Why You Should Really Never Sleep In Your Contact Lenses

If you thought dry eyes were the worst that could happen if you sleep in your contact lenses every so often, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has news. The consequences can be a lot worse.

Approximately one in five contact lens-related corneal infections (i.e. those on the clear outer layer of the eye) resulted in serious damage to the eye, according to a new CDC report that analyzed 1,075 contact lens-related corneal infection medical reports sent to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration between 2005 and 2015.

Think permanent scarring, surgery or even vision loss, as this video from Time explains.

And one in every four infections occurred in contact lens wearers who reported totally avoidable behaviors like reusing cleansing solution or sleeping in their lenses.

“While severe eye infections are not common, they can lead to long-lasting damage,” Jennifer Cope, a medical epidemiologist at CDC who coauthored the new report, told The Huffington Post. 

Contact lens-related eye infections are often preventable.
Jennifer Cope, a CDC medical epidemiologist

Previous research from Cope and her colleagues showed that of a survey of 4,269 contact lens wearers from across the U.S. more than 99 percent reported one behavior that put them at increased risk for an eye infection or inflammation, such as sleeping overnight or napping in contact lenses, reusing contact solution, wearing lenses longer than recommended or swimming in lenses.

Other research has shown that even occasionally sleeping overnight in contact lenses increases an individual’s risk of an infection by more than six-fold.

The problem with sleeping in your lenses is that you deprive your corneas of oxygen, Rebecca Taylor, an ophthalmologist in private practice in Nashville, Tenn., and a spokesperson for the American Academy of Ophthalmology, previously told HuffPost.

“It’s like having a plastic bag over your head when you sleep,” she said. “It’s not ideal for oxygen exchange.” 

To help keep your eyes refreshed and infection-free, Cope says remember these three rules:

1. Don’t sleep in your contacts without discussing it with your eye doctor first.

2. Don’t reuse contact solution.

3. Replace your contact lenses as often as recommended by your eye doctor.

It’s important to note that the CDC report only included infections that were reported to the FDA ― and there are likely many more contact lens-related infections that are not reported to the FDA, Cope said.

And there’s also no way of knowing from this report exactly how many of the infections in this report were necessarily caused by the behaviors that are known to put an individual at a higher risk for infection. But Cope added: “The bottom line is that contact lens-related eye infections are often preventable.”
