John Oliver Is Back, And He Wants You To Get ‘F**king Outraged’ Over Donald Trump’s Scandals

If you think this election is simply a choice between two candidates with a scandal-filled history, John Oliver has a message for you… and it comes in the form of raisins.

In his return to HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” on Sunday, Oliver took an in-depth look at the scandals surrounding both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and found they’re not even close to equal. 

NOTE: Strong language in the clip above and description below.

“This campaign has been dominated by scandals, but it is dangerous to think that there is an equal number on both sides,” he said. “And you can be irritated by some of Hillary’s ― that is understandable ― but you should then be fucking outraged by Trump’s.”

And that brings it back to those raisins.

“Ethical failings in a politician are like raisins in a cookie,” he explained. “They shouldn’t be there. They disgust people. But most politicians have at least a few raisins.”

Here’s Hillary’s cookie:

But when it comes to Trump, there are more raisins than can fit in a cookie. A lot more: 

“The man is a fucking raisin monsoon,” Oliver declared. “He is ethically compromised to an almost unprecedented degree.” 

See his full takedown of Trump in the clip above.

In this spoof posted Sunday by Sky News in the UK, the candidates brought out the verse in each other in a boxing ring and landed their most clever blows yet.

What The Buddha Would Say To Mr. Trump

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How To Practice Yoga When You Have A Hearing Loss

2016-09-20-1474389594-984318-Untitleddesign2.jpg
Source: Unsplash

I love yoga! Not only is it fun, but I find the health benefits to be extraordinary. My yoga practice saved me from real injury during a fall last year, and I think that it, combined with meditation, has helped calm the severity of my tinnitus. I recommend yoga to everyone I meet — whether they have hearing loss or not!

But sometimes people with hearing loss are skeptical. They wonder, “How will I be able to follow along in class if I can’t hear the instructor? or “Will my hearing aids stay on during the postures?” Or “Will the classes be too loud?” These are all real concerns, but ones that can be offset by choosing the right class with an understanding instructor.

I practice Bikram Yoga, which takes place in a heated room. I like it because it is quiet — no music or other distractions. The teachers do not demonstrate the postures, but guide the class with their voice, often wearing a microphone headset so they are heard throughout the room. The class is identical every time, so I always know what posture is coming next, and there are mirrors in the front of the room so I can easily see when the class is moving in and out of a posture. But the heat is not for everyone.

I have also attended other types of yoga classes, some with more success than others. How much I enjoy the class always comes down to the quality of the instructor, my familiarity with the postures ahead of time, and my ability to just relax and go with the flow. My hearing loss is usually not a big factor, unless I let it be.

Here are my tips for practicing yoga with a hearing loss.

BEFORE YOU START

1. Do your research. Yoga has gotten so popular that there are likely several studios in your town. Visit them and ask the manager to recommend classes and instructors that avoid loud music, and that tend to repeat the same series of postures in each class. Tell them about your hearing loss — there may be other students in the same boat. Ask which classes attract students with a broad range of ages and abilities — this will make class less intimidating.

2. Take an intro class or a few private lessons first. Most studios offer new student workshops on a monthly or more frequent basis. This is a great way to learn the basics in a smaller setting where hearing will be easier and one-on-one attention is the norm. Familiarity with the postures will give you confidence before heading into a group class. If new student classes are not available, you can always try a beginning yoga DVD at home to learn some of the basics.

AT CLASS

1. Talk to the teacher before class. Tell the teacher at the start of class about your hearing loss and ask for the best place to set up your mat based on where the teacher will be spending most of his or her time. This knowledge will also allow the teacher to give you extra assistance if you seem to be missing something.

Expert tip: There may be a line to talk to the teacher. Many students will discuss physical limitations such as an injury or illness with the yoga teacher before class — you discussing your hearing loss will not appear odd at all.

2. Set up your mat in the middle of the room. Here, you can watch people in front of you if you don’t hear the teacher’s instructions AND you can see other yogis behind you or to the side if you are doing postures where you are not facing forward.

3. Go with the flow. Hey, it’s only yoga! Who cares if you are behind in transitioning from posture to posture or your postures don’t look ready for competition. This is about your health and mental wellbeing and nothing other than that is really important. Plus, it gets easier the more you do it. Don’t expect perfection early on.

4. Be persistent. The first class you try might not be the one for you. Try another class or a different instructor or even a different style of yoga. It’s kind of like trying out hearing aids or princes — the first one you kiss might not be a good match.

Yoga is not for everyone, but if you are interested in trying it out or maintaining a regular practice, don’t let your hearing loss stop you. Not only are the physical benefits of yoga (stronger muscles and improved flexibility) important, the mental benefits are also numerous. Yoga at its best, combines physical postures with a philosophy of patience and self-acceptance, which can come in very handy when dealing with the day-to-day frustrations of hearing loss. I know it does for me.

Readers, have you tried yoga?

We Are Not Babysitters: Family Childcare Providers Redefine Work and Care

We Are Not Babysitters: Family Childcare Providers Redefine Work and Care


In We Are Not Babysitters, Mary Tuominen dispels not only myths about why women choose to be family child care providers and what it means to them, but also exposes how our social attitudes about care and our public child care policies shortchange these providers, most of whom are working mothers themselves with their own tenuous hold on self-sufficiency. A must read for policy makers, advocates, and practitioners.”-Marcy Whitebook, founding executive director, Center for the Child Care Workforce (Washington, D.C.), and director, Center for the Study of Child Care Employment, University of California, Berkeley “This book is a wonderful addition to the literature on care giving. We Are Not Babysitters provides an illuminating analysis of the relation between the larger values of society and the indifference to the needs of both the care receivers and care givers. Tuominen’s sophisticated analysis creates a marvelously acute picture of the way family child care in the home is constructed and offered.”-Arlene K. Daniels, professor emerita, Department of Sociology and Women’s Studies, Northwestern University Using in-depth interviews with child care providers, Mary C. Tuominen explores the social, political, and economic forces and processes that draw women into the work of family child care. In We Are Not Babysitters, the lives and work of twenty family child care providers of diverse race, ethnicity, immigrant status, and social class serve as a window into understanding the c

A Referendum on the American Voter-An Independent’s View

With the 1st presidential debate hours away, this election has become a referendum on the American voter!

What, I have it all wrong you say; it is about whether we want Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump to be our president. And voting for Gary Johnson is a wasted vote since neither he, nor Green Party candidate, Dr. Jill Stein, will ever win; they are place card holders for their constituencies. Why waste your vote on them?

In order to properly frame what I mean about this election being a referendum on the American voter, perhaps using an analogy would be helpful.

You are a hiring partner of a business, small or big; rural or urban; local, statewide, national or international. Your business has placed an ad or hired a recruiter to look for the most qualified candidate to fill the leadership position of your entity. The most qualified is typically defined by one having critical experience, knowledge and background together with a measure of personality to fit into the culture of the organization, certainly with those that are the underlings running key parts of the business. After all, the hiring partner knows the business is in operation to serve its customer base but keeping in mind the bottom line in order to make a profit and that paychecks won’t bounce.

Besides a resume or a Curriculum Vitae, your HR department asks for recommendations from candidates that become finalists, contacting those they list for this purpose; maybe some folks the candidates do not list.

The position comes down to two candidates, “A” and “B”. “A” has considerable experience, background and experience; “B” hardly any. There are questions about both that focus on transparency and trust, though its been reported, with verification, that “B” has a reputation for disparaging various groups of peoples, minorities included, within his past business associations. “B’s prior business practices have also, shall we say, a shadiness to them. “B” has also been asked to produce critical documents typically required for the position, but refuses to do so. “A” also has some issues relating to openness and candor. Further HR research uncovers that “B” and the companies he has worked for have been involved in many lawsuits. He has a personality that suggests what he says and does all the time is right and what everyone else says or does is wrong.

You know that picking the wrong candidate as the head of your company could well have disastrous consequences for the business, even bankruptcy, and certainly the jobs and paychecks for all of the workers.

The factors for deciding whether “A” and “B” would be selected could fill a volume, but I think you get where I am going with this hypothetical job posting. “A” = HRC; “B” = Trump. In the private business sector, there would not even be a doubt that Clinton would be selected for the job.

So why are millions of Americans willing to vote for Trump to be their next president when, if in the private sector, his background, lack of knowledge, and experience would be totally insufficient. And this is not even taking into account being commander-in-chief? Why, then, are millions of Americans willing to gamble their household paychecks, domestic goods and services that have risen in the last eight years, and fortifying their country’s presence on the international stage when Trump otherwise has shown his incompetency in all respects? Why would millions of Americans gamble on him when his tract record with various voting blocks is abysmal? Why would millions of Americans vote for Trump when fact-checking organizations rate him a liar 70+% of the time? To his credit, what he has going for him is being a showman, a carnival barker, a reality TV “star”—but this background should never qualify anyone of this ilk to be president of the United States.

Even the run-up to the debate tonight has become farcical, as if he has turned it into a reality TV show with the American voter that is supporting him his audience. No presidential election campaign in recent memory has ever been turned into the “show” Trump has created by his mere presence, a Piñata for all. Is he counting on a voter that doesn’t think through what he says or checks facts to see if he is truthful? Yup!

Given the Trump spectacle versus the seriousness about which Clinton is proceeding on the various domestic and international issues facing American voters; given the shallowness of Trump’s abilities to lead against Clinton’s knowledge, depth of experience and background with the issues and interaction over the last four decades with the “players” (heads of state) in the game, it all comes down to the heart versus the mind of the voter that will decide who wins come the morning of November 9. Trump may capture the hearts of Americans with his bombast, his insults, his racism and bigotry and certainly, to repeat once more, the depth of his knowledge that is as deep as the surface of any body of water. After all, we have been told that he talks what certain voters have silently thought for so long—-the “Archie Bunker” view of the country in “All in the Family” that depicted a blue collar family in Queens, NY of the 1960s. Of course, there were also the views of “Meathead”, Archie’s son-in-law played by Rob Reiner, who challenged his father-in-law’s viewpoints with facts and what his mind told him was the right thing to do. To be certain, none of us should want to go back to the future (remember those Michael J. Fox flicks?)

Regardless that Trump is trying to take the American voter back 50+ years, let’s return to the job posting. Do you want your company’s profits for the next four years led by bluster, bluff and lies? Do you want your weekly or monthly paycheck dependent on someone that, from all indications of past performance, swindles and cheats others for personal gain? Do you want a bigot and racist leading the way? Can you count on such a person hiring you? If you are skeptical, or your answers are “no”, then why would you want that same-type person leading your country as president? Lead with your mind, not your heart; otherwise, this election becomes a referendum on you, the American voter…and that is never good.

Make America a Great Depression Again!

2016-09-26-1474888765-9927435-MakeAmericaaGreatDepressionAgain.jpg

In tonight’s debate and throughout the remainder of the campaign, Hillary Clinton should take direct aim at the economic plan Donald Trump announced in a recent speech at the Economic Club of New York. It is a blueprint for an economic cataclysm on the scale of what almost happened in 2008 and what did happen beginning in 1929.

Here is a summary of the Trump program in slogans:

Slash Taxes on the Super Rich!

Reduce Regulations on Banks and Corporations!

Massively Increase Federal Deficits!

Bring on Another Great Depression!

This man who presents himself as the champion of the working man (an absurd claim, given Trump’s lifelong business record and his complete lack of concern for those he classifies as “losers”) is doubling down on trickle-down, and the result of implementing his proposals could not be other than to take the economy and the middle- and working-classes down, down, down.

The Failed Policies of the Past

As an historian of the Great Depression (I have written or edited five books on the era), I can state unequivocally that the policies enunciated by the Republican presidential nominee are essentially those pursued by his party in the 1920s and under the administration of George W. Bush that led directly to the two worst economic collapses in more than a century–the Great Depression and the so-called “Great Recession.” In fact, his proposals are to repeat the mistakes of the past, but to an even greater extent than the second President Bush did.

The most basic cause of those past economic disasters was a concentration of wealth and income at the very top and a lack of sufficient regulation of financial institutions. When too much of the nation’s income is in the hands of a very few, there is not enough spread among the bulk of the population to maintain sufficient demand–the level of purchasing needed to keep a consumption-based economy afloat. Mr. Trump proposes not only to repeat the failed policies of the 1920s and early 2000s, but to offer even bigger tax cuts for the super-rich than Mr. Bush did.

Mr. Trump has consistently shown himself to be immune to facts and unwilling to accept scientific evidence (as in his labeling of climate change as a hoax). For those who are susceptible to evidence, here are a few facts that are relevant to what he is now proposing (of course there were other factors in addition to tax rates involved and this is an oversimplification, but the pattern is striking):

In 1925, Calvin Coolidge and Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon pushed through a reduction of the top tax rate to 25 percent. By 1928, the richest 0.01 percent of Americans were taking on almost 6 percent of the nation’s income. In 1929, the economy collapsed.

In 1993, when President Bill Clinton proposed a modest increase in the top tax rate to 39.6 percent, Republicans predicted economic disaster and every Republican in Congress voted against it. Over the following years, the “disaster” turned out to be one of the greatest periods of prosperity in American history and a federal budget surplus.

In 2003, President George W. Bush got the top rate lowered to 35 percent. The federal surplus vanished and enormous new debt was run up. By 2007, the richest 0.01 percent were again taking in 6 percent of the income. In 2008, the economy collapsed.

When President Obama took office in 2009, the top rate was returned to 39.6 percent, a stimulus package was enacted, new financial regulations were put in place, and the economy began a slow recovery that has now resulted in the largest gain in median household income since records of that statistic began to be collected in 1968.

What, then, does Donald Trump propose? To cut the top tax rate to 33 percent, lower than the 2003 Bush tax cut–and to combine that with other giant gifts to the richest Americans, including the elimination of the estate tax, which only affects the very rich, slashing the corporate and capital gains tax, reducing regulations …

Then there is Trump’s anti-trade policy, which threatens to slap huge tariffs on foreign-made goods. While it was not the principal cause of the Great Depression, one of the factors in exacerbating the economic collapse of the 1930s was the choking off international trade through the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act of 1930 and subsequent actions by the United States and other nations. Trump’s economic nationalism and general “America First” attitude adds to his prescription for a new economic collapse.

Don’t Get Fooled Again

In the midst of the Great Depression in 1932, Franklin D. Roosevelt famously called for “bold, persistent experimentation” and said “It is common sense to take a method and try it: If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.”

Donald Trump’s approach is bold persistence in doing what has completely failed every time it has been tried in the past. The bottom line of his economic speech can be accurately translated as:

Take a method that has failed every time it’s been tried and try it again. If it fails, deny it and try it again. But above all, keep trying the same old thing.

To borrow lines from Pete Townshend, “Then I’ll get on my knees and pray / We don’t get fooled again.”

Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

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

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

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

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

American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

The 11 Struggles Of Hypersensitive Individuals

Here’s the cycle.

Person A does something person B doesn’t like.

Person B gets hurt and calls them out on it.

Person A gets mad at Person B.

It happens to me over and over and over again. It’s gotten to the point where I just expect it, like the people sitting in the splash zone at Sea World.

And then as I sat down to think about it, there’s a lot of struggles that us overly sensitive people go through. It’s not just one thing–it’s a multitude of them. So, in the name of self-therapy through writing, I’m going to list every single one of them.

1. We’re Always The Bad Guy, Even Though We Shouldn’t Be

I’m going to write that again. We’re always the bad guy, even though we shouldn’t be. When somebody hurts us, we tell them about it. Then after we tell them, they feel like we’re the ones attacking THEM, when we’re simply telling them what hurt us. People, it’s really not that hard to avoid being a complete Cotton-Headed Ninnymuggins to somebody. Shout out to Will Ferrel.

2. We Expect People To Be Somewhat Honorable

Many times when conflict arises and I know without a shadow of a doubt that I’m not wrong, I decide to just let things sit until an apology presents itself from the other party. Yeah, about 95 percent of the time that doesn’t happen. Our problem is we expect people to have at least a single shred of dignity and simply say two words that would make things better. Guys, being sensitive goes both ways. We get hurt, but all we need is a freaking apology and we’re better. We don’t need gifts and dinners and vases full of flowers.

And I also want to say that the ball isn’t always in our court. We need to express to the other party that something is wrong. That’s our duty to others.

3. Things End Up Blown Way Out Of Proportion

Because of our sensitivity, and because of the other party’s hard-headedness, things get blown way out of proportion. Things escalate because two simple words couldn’t be said. One person couldn’t humble themselves and say a simple apology.

4. We Can’t Fix It

In case anyone was wondering, we can’t fix this. For the most part, we’re very thoughtful individuals who expect much of ourselves and not much from others. But when somebody pushes our buttons, and we have a few, something must happen. It’s nothing that we can fix. We can try to improve at communicating that we’re hurt instead of internalizing it, but that’s it. We are who we are.

5. People Get Fed Up With Us Easily

It gets to the point with certain people where it’s like the boy who cried wolf syndrome. They get really annoyed that things keep going wrong, even when they should know by now what makes us tick. At one point you have to start wondering whether a relationship between the two of you is even healthy. Not all people are meant to get into a relationship with or be friends with somebody who is sensitive.

6. We’re Left Hurting Extremely Badly

When we do call people out on something, often times they just don’t apologize. Sometimes they even try to make it worse. This is the hardest part of it all because somebody we like or love is deliberately trying to hurt us more. Nothing is worse to a sensitive person than deliberate insensitivity.

7. Most Times We End Up Saying Sorry

Trust me, we hate conflict. We hate conflict as much as we hate getting our feelings hurt. So to bypass conflict we end up saying sorry simply to make things normal again. This isn’t a healthy way to take care of the situation at all.

8. Some Times We’re Serious And Cut People Off

Sometimes we are serious and end up cutting people off for good. And no, it wasn’t all just because of a dumb little text or a dumb little side comment–it was because the other person didn’t have the humility to simply take two seconds to say sorry. Literally all we want is an apology. When we’re hurt that bad, we remember it.

9. People Simply Don’t Learn

After a few months of knowing someone, you kind of understand what makes them tick and what doesn’t make them tick. For those who are friends with sensitive people, you should be able to understand that we have a few land mines embedded in the soil of our personality, but if you simply avoid doing just one or two things, life with us is going to be absolute gravy.

10. We Sound Over-Emotional

I’m sure you got that just from reading this post. The truth is that we’re amazing friends to have. We’ll put in more effort than anyone else and we’ll also be much more thoughtful than anyone else. It goes both ways. You get the insane highs with the lows. And the fact is that you won’t even get the lows that much if you simply stop doing the two or three things that we don’t like!

11. It’s Hard To Find Someone That Gets It

I have a few friends that get it. They understand that sometimes jokes need to be kept to a minimum, and that I have my stressful days every now and then. I hardly fight with these kinds of people. For the most part we have awesome times together with little to no conflict at all, while on the other hand I could have multiple conflicts a day with somebody else.

Again, it all depends on the personality of the people around us, and whether they even care about the sensitivity of other people.

The Difference Between Optimists And Pessimists In One Perfect Comic

The split between optimists and pessimists is pretty much night and day. Optimists generally approach life with a positive outlook, while pessimists tend to expect the worst. Optimists go into new situations with high expectations, while pessimists keep low expectations to prepare for negative outcomes.

Nothing illustrates the divide between optimists and pessimists quite so accurately as this illustration from Owl Turd Comix.

To be fair, pessimists aren’t ALL doom and gloom. As Pulitzer-prize winning political commentator George Will once put it, “The nice part about being a pessimist is that you are constantly being either proven right or pleasantly surprised.”

While a pessimistic outlook may become a self-fulfilling prophecy, as illustrated above, pessimists are well-equipped to handle life’s downturns. After all, they do spend their lives preparing for the worst.

And don’t worry about the optimist in the comic: true optimists don’t mind failure. When life knocks them down, they get right back up and try again. Optimists know that things won’t always go their way, but they don’t expend energy anticipating negative outcomes. 

No matter who you are, chances are you’ll see a little of yourself in this comic.

What Should Replace the Republican Party?


A Party Lobotomized

2016-09-25-1474782882-9039709-lincoln_284_356.jpg

Once the venerable party of Lincoln, the Republicans split off from the Whigs in 1854 to oppose slavery, and for a century stood for fiscal restraint, free enterprise and principled conservatism. Their demise probably began with Richard Nixon’s “southern strategy” of 1968 — the deliberate pandering to white racist Democrats of the southern states — but Barry Goldwater’s nomination four years earlier had also been a harbinger of doom. Now, as Tom Friedman has pointed out, the party is an empty shell of its former self, the rusting hulk of a Rube Goldberg contraption slapped together to garner the support of Christian fundamentalists, the gun lobby, the Tea Party, global warming deniers, birthers and other right-wing conspiracy theory nuts. In hindsight, the nomination of Donald Trump seems the inevitable climax of this recent and sad history.

Whether Trump wins or loses in November, the political party he hijacked is dead. Most of its traditional constituency — thoughtful conservatives who care about solving real problems through compromise — have been purged. They need a new political home, as do other disaffected citizens, but what form might that take? What should it be called? What big ideas should it advocate? What principles should guide it?

Science as a Way of Solving Problems

2016-09-25-1474774474-3778539-aldrin_on_moon_cropped_570_341.jpg

I have no law degree or experience in government. I’m not a historian. My background is in science and biology, which may seem irrelevant to these questions. But science is by far the most successful method humans have devised for finding truth and solving problems. It opened our eyes to the vast size and age of our universe, doubled our lifespans and took us to the moon. Could the principles at the core of the scientific method — honesty, humility and a ruthless insistence on discarding ideas that conflict with empirical evidence — guide a political party? And could we make better use of scientific insights from nature in the way we manage human affairs? I think so, and a party that championed this approach could win support from thinking people across the political spectrum.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not advocating the resurrection of the Technocracy Movement of the 1930s. I’m not even suggesting that political leaders should have degrees in science or engineering, though that might help. Instead I’m suggesting that our way of choosing social policies should, as much as possible, follow the scientific method. Science is not merely a body of knowledge about how nature works. Above all it is a method for finding truth and solving problems, one that mimics biological evolution in the way it explores the vast space of possible solutions.

We see similar dynamics in free-market economic systems. We have not, however, seen much of it in politics, where slavish adherence to intuitively appealing ideologies generates an impoverished menu of options: cutting entitlement spending versus higher taxes on the rich; a single-payer healthcare system versus private health insurance; private school vouchers versus greater pay for teachers in public schools. In these and other problem domains, ideology has blinded us to that vast space of possible solutions.

Mathematician, poet and philosopher Jacob Bronowski made essentially the same point sixty-five years ago in The Common Sense of Science. At a time when the threat of global nuclear war darkened our collective mood, he wrote:

2016-09-25-1474775050-3893334-bronowski_251_326.jpg

[S]cience is the acceptance of what works and the rejection of what does not. That needs more courage than we might think.

It needs more courage than we have ever found when we have faced our worldly problems. This is how society has lost touch with science: because it has hesitated to judge itself by the same impersonal code of what works and what does not. We have clung to Adam Smith and Burke, or we have agitated for Plato and Aquinas, through wars and famine, through rising and falling birth-rates, and through libraries of learned argument. And in the end, our eyes have always wandered from the birth-rate to the argument: from the birth-rate to what we have wanted to believe… Here is our ultimate hope of saving ourselves from extinction. We must learn to understand that the content of all knowledge is empirical; that its test is whether it works; and we must learn to act on that understanding in the world as well as in the laboratory.

[p. 152, Harvard University Press 1967 edition]


What Would Scientific Politics Look Like?

If this fantasy could be realized in a new political party, it would be a striking break from the past. Like an electron in its quantum mechanical realm, this new party could not be localized with certainty to any one place on the political spectrum. That fact alone might increase its appeal in a time of unprecedented political gridlock, obstruction and frustration. Its big unifying principle would be its method of solving problems. Of course good old-fashioned political haggling, deal-making and voting would still be needed in Congress to decide which problems to tackle and, more importantly, to choose criteria by which we will judge the success or failure of alternative solutions. But having made those decisions, open-minded experimentation with multiple solutions in parallel would be the immediate goal, rather than a single solution dictated by ideology.

For many problems, especially economic ones, it might be best not to specify any tentative solutions, but instead to shape economic incentives and let the free market explore the solution space. This is what Germany did to increase its use of renewable energy and decrease its contribution to global warming. Anyone could make real money — enough to make the effort worthwhile — by installing solar panels and selling their excess electricity to the grid. This required a subsidy paid by residential customers of the electrical utility, so the cost of electricity increased for those who didn’t put up solar panels. But even those people responded to the price incentive: they found ways to use less electricity.

A similar approach could help with the coming crisis in Medicare solvency. Medicare might survive if wasteful and unnecessary procedures could be reduced, and this might happen naturally if patients and healthcare providers had the right incentives. Suppose, for example, that there were some formula for limiting the total Medicare benefits that each person could receive over his or her life. Both patients and doctors would have an incentive to use that limited resource wisely, but only if the system had complete price transparency. The cost of every medical procedure, device and drug would need to be known up front by all concerned, and patients would need to have the freedom to do comparative shopping. In such a system, real costs could be weighed along with medical risks and benefits — something that is impossible in our current healthcare system.

But what formula should be used for limiting benefits? Should exceptions be allowed for certain medical conditions? Should the limit be age-dependent, such that people above a specified age lose coverage for heroic and expensive life-saving procedures? How should the formula be related to the balance in the Medicare trust fund? These are difficult questions, but experimentation is the way to answer them, and it would help to have a political party that embraces this empirical and exploratory approach.

Lessons From Nature

And when that party sets its political priorities, it should also embrace our scientific understanding of reality. The acknowledgement of and response to global warming is an obvious example, but there are less obvious and more important lessons we can take from nature. One is the observation that organisms normally live in dynamic equilibrium with their environment. “Equilibrium, not Growth” may not be a catchy slogan for a bumper sticker, but it is the hallmark of an enduring species, and we ignore it at our peril. We have increased Earth’s carrying capacity for humans by decreasing it for other species, a shortsighted strategy that leads to mass extinction. We are currently on track for a global population of about 11 billion humans on Earth by the end of this century, a number that is unsustainable if these billions are to have even a modestly comfortable standard of living. Stabilizing our numbers and preserving biodiversity should be high priorities for a party that takes its lessons from nature.

What should this party be called? Tom Friedman suggested “New Republican Party,” but that suggests too small a departure from the party of Trump, or even of Lincoln. Of course “Scientific Party” comes to mind, but this sounds too much like familiar and dubious attempts to imbue wholly undeserving movements with the credibility of science, merely by tacking on the label — Mary Baker Eddie’s “Christian Science,” for example, or L. Ron Hubbard’s “Scientology.” But since this is my fantasy, I’ll offer my current favorite choice for a name: the “Pragmatic Party.” It has a nice ring to it and seems to express the essence of the idea.

Prospects for a Pragmatic Party

Whether this fantasy will ever be realized remains to be seen. I admit it seems far-fetched in a country where about 40 percent of the public believe in young-earth creationism. Yet there is hope in our younger generation, who are far more accepting of scientific reality. Ironically the Trump phenomenon offers some hope, too. Only a broken primary system could allow someone like Donald Trump to get this close to the presidency. Many people, conservatives among them, feel a strong and urgent need to fix this. A good Pragmatist would respond with a list of possible fixes. If the primary electorate is unrepresentative of the general electorate, then we need to make primaries look more like the general election. There are many possibilities. One of my favorites would be to eliminate primaries altogether by using ranked-choice voting. You may have even better ideas. Let’s experiment!

Redditors Hilariously Reimagine Michelle Obama’s Hug With George W. Bush

It was inevitable.

Michelle Obama hugged George W. Bush at the opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington on Saturday, and people on the internet immediately went into overdrive.

Redditors used former chief White House photographer David Hume Kennerly’s heartwarming picture of the First Lady embracing her husband’s predecessor to engage in a good old Photoshop battle.

They amusingly reimagined Bush as a sleeping baby and an actual bush ― while presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton also made an appearance.

Here are some of the best posts we’ve seen so far:

Friendship And Our Vagus Nerve

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sample Letter Requesting a 120 Day Extension

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

The revised draft guidance for New Dietary Ingredients (NDIs)

Date:

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

(Electronic Submission via www.regulations.gov)

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you.

Sincerely

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

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

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

This is a tale of two cities.

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

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

 

 

Here is the Police video of the Charlotte shooting:

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

Here is a video of the rioting in Charlotte.

 

 

That is the tale of one city, Charlotte.

Here is the tale of the other city.

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

 

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

Here is a video of the rioting in Tulsa:

 

 
There is no video because there was no rioting.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here are some similar encounters of the recent past.

ALTON STERLING (Baton Rouge Man Selling CDs)

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

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

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

SANDRA BLAND (Traffic stop, Waller County, Texas)

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

Bill Maher Slams Donald Trump For Blaming Charlotte Protests On Drugs

Bill Maher tore into Donald Trump for suggesting that drugs are “a very big factor” in the Charlotte protests on Friday.

The “Real Time with Bill Maher” host compared the GOP presidential candidate’s asinine reaction to the demonstrations, which erupted in the North Carolina city following the fatal police shooting of 43-year-old black man Keith Lamont Scott on Tuesday, to those of a “90-year-old aunt.”

Watch the clip here:

Of course Donald Trump is making the situation better, as he always does,” Maher said, sarcastically. “He (Trump) actually said this, ‘if you are not aware, drugs are a very big factor.’”

“He’s like your 90-year-old aunt, ‘they’re all taking something,’” the comedian added. “Yeah, they’re taking something alright — bullets.”

Trump connected the protests to narcotics, seemingly without any evidence to support his assertion, during a rally in Pittsburgh on Wednesday. “Drugs are a very, very big factor in what you’re watching on television at night,” he told the crowd.

But Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts later told CNN it was “presumptuous” of him to have done so “without having thorough conversations with some of the folks who are here on the ground and are really aware of what’s going on and what the reasoning is.”

Check out Maher’s monologue in the clip above.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly serial liar, birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

Vital Lessons Learned From The Chelsea Bombing From A Chelsea Psychologist

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

4) Crowdsourcing is a weapon against terror.

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

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

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

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

Fixing Our Food System Shouldn’t Be A Partisan Issue

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Huffington Post recently spoke with Linnekin.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Barack Obama Advises His 2009 Self In Hilarious Jimmy Fallon Clip

If you had the chance, what advice would you give to your younger self?

Jimmy Fallon has hilariously imagined what the President Barack Obama of today would say to himself when he first entered the White House in 2009.

And POTUS’ biggest tip? Well, apparently it’s all about the hand sanitizer.

With the election so close, President Obama’s time in office is winding down,” Fallon said on “The Tonight Show” on Friday.

“Of course, Obama has changed a lot during his Presidency,” the comedian added, before playing the amusing spliced and diced interview between the “duo.”

Check out the fun in the clip above.

Stephen Colbert Looks At The Other Presidential Candidates, Including God

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump aren’t the only runners in this year’s presidential race.

With 1,928 people declaring their candidacy for the 2016 election, “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert took a look at some of the more unconventional applicants for the top job on Friday night.

Contenders calling themselves “Cobra Commander,” “Yoda StarWars” and “God” have all registered themselves on the Federal Election Commission’s website, according to the comedian. 

That’s great news,” he said. “I was worried this election was proof there is no God.”

“God” then went on to make an appearance on the show ― revealing to Colbert the reasons for the presidential run, running mate possibilities and who may be endorsed.

Check it out in the clip above.

My Stepmom Died And That’s Not Okay

I’ve been having some health problems.

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

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

“You said your mother-in-law died?”

“No, my stepmom.”

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

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

I blame Cinderella. Thanks, Disney.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It has been seven months.

And I think I have finally started to grieve.

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

‘Love Hormone’ Oxytocin May Enhance Feelings Of Spirituality

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But it has a dark side, too.

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

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

    A better future awaits.

    How time flies! It feels like just the other day that we united in celebration of the new global development framework – Agenda 2030 – which would become our road map to a better future for all. This new agenda placed achieving sustainable and universal development firmly on our agenda, and our to-do lists become a lot fuller. Governments around the world joined in their commitment to this framework and we all congratulated this incredible achievement. The world was emboldened by this ambitious, progressive agenda for global change. Yet here we are, a year on, and it’s the time to realise these commitments and keep our promises.

    For us here at End Water Poverty, and all those within the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector, we had several reasons to celebrate this momentous occasion. Not only did we secure a dedicated goal on water and sanitation – Goal 6 – within the new agenda, but we also made significant and progressive achievements in several other key areas. Hygiene has now been registered as a vital component in improving people’s lives and included in the targets within Goal 6. And the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are also directly aligned with the human rights to water and sanitation standards and principles. In fact, human rights form the basis for the whole of Agenda 2030, which is a fundamental transformation from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of the past.

    “We envisage a world of universal respect for human rights and human dignity, the rule of law, justice, equality and non-discrimination …” Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, A/RES/70/1, United Nations.

    Once the excitement settled down following the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in September 2015, it has been a period of adjustment to understand our new reality, and the scale of our commitments. This is an ambitious agenda and we can see the world we want ahead. In order to achieve this however, we all will have to work together.

    The significance of water and sanitation is evident throughout the new Development Framework. There is a dynamic interdependence between water and sanitation and so many of the other goals; including ensuring healthy lives and well-being for all (Goal 3), achieving gender equality (Goal 5), through to making cities inclusive, safe and sustainable (Goal 11) and combating climate change (Goal 13). For example, protecting people from water borne diseases not only contributes to Goal 3 of good health, but also increases society’s overall productivity, and therefore contributes to Goal 8 of economic development. Given the essential nature of safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene for an adequate standard of living, the elimination of inequalities in accessing these services, and moving towards universal access will be critical to the achievement of our new Agenda.

    Through the MDGs, we made significant strides towards the ultimate goal of improving people’s lives. Despite this progress, not enough has been done. We still face the reality that more than 650 million people don’t have access to improved water, and more than 2.3 billion people around the world lack access to improved sanitation facilities. That’s one in three people. Progress has also been very unequal, and for the world’s most vulnerable and marginalised people, very little has changed. We still live in a world where women and girls struggle every day to safely manage their menstrual hygiene and health; where too many children still die as a result of undernutrition. This has to stop. We have to end poverty and inequality in all forms, and equitable access to water and sanitation is central to this aim.

    2016-09-23-1474625002-4014194-ActnowforWASHpostersLiberiaprotest.JPG

    Humans are capable of incredible things, and achieving this new agenda can be one such feat. There is no doubt that humanity in the future will look back to this ambitious decision and say ‘yes, we were right!’. Implementing progressive plans, with effective monitoring systems, will be of critical importance for national governments to be able to achieve the goals.

    Under the theme of ‘The Sustainable Development Goals: a universal push to transform our world’, this year again we come together for UNGA, an important time for governments to discuss and plan how they are working towards achieving their commitments. This serves as a reminder of the urgent action that is required. Now is the time to push for greater civil society participation, as including a wide range of stakeholders will be fundamental to achieve the change we want to see, within the timeframe we have left.

    This new agenda must be for the people, and owned by the people. Citizen power and partnerships will be critical for a revolution, and a revolution is what we need. We have had a good, but slow start. Change must not just be on paper – the global goals must be achieved. Now is the time for ‘business unusual’! We have to target the most marginalised and vulnerable from the very beginning. Early and effective implementation, with practical action on the ground needs to be prioritised. The energy and momentum seen over the past year must be maintained, as we are up against a ticking clock. Fourteen years will go by quickly. Now is the time for action and to ensure that we truly leave no one behind. Together, for a better future!

    Established in 2008, End Water Poverty is a global civil society coalition advocating to end the water and sanitation crisis. We are united by our dedication to ensuring universal access to sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene for all. Join us in March 2017 for Water Action Month as we call for a better future for all!

    Powerful New Clinton Ad Nails The Impact Of Trump’s Vile Behavior

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign is here to show you what a Donald Trump presidency would feel like for young women.

    The Democratic nominee’s latest ad, titled “Mirrors,” shows girls of varying ages and backgrounds looking at their reflections as they hear multiple comments from Trump degrading women.

    “Donald Trump has spent his campaign, and career, demeaning and insulting women, which is just one of the reasons a majority of American women do not think Trump respects women,” Clinton’s campaign said in a statement.

    The spot ends with a sobering question: “Is this the president we want for our daughters?”

    Watch the full ad in the video above.

    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.

    http://www.acrx.org -As millions of Americans strive to deal with the economic downturn,loss of jobs,foreclosures,high cost of gas,and the rising cost of prescription drug cost. Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

    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.

Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

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

    Jew Am I?

    2016-09-22-1474519476-6095897-ScreenShot20160921at9.44.03PM.png

    Despite my unpronounceable surname, formidable Dukakis-level brow line and decidedly Jewtastic seasonal allergies, I’ve always considered myself a regular, average American. I’ve lived in America for all 50 of my 50 years, if we count Los Angeles as part of America. And some people do. On Friday nights, I solve Blue Bloods murders right alongside Tom Selleck’s mustache. On Saturday mornings, I’ll watch any college football game you place in front of me, even the traditional battle between the Devry Institute and Clown College. And on the 4th of July, I not only root for Joey Chestnutt in the Hot Dog Eating contest, but I’ll often eat along with him. You know, for moral support. I like my sitcoms with three cameras and my omelettes with three cheeses. I cried at Argo, Sully, Rudy and Miracle. I complain about traffic and Mondays and my back and gridlock in Washington. See? Regular. Average. American.

    And then there are occasional days, when I still feel like a guest, trying to “pass”. But hey, what are you gonna do?

    Not long ago, I was at the dentist when their hygienist asked if I was Persian. I answered “No, but that’s funny I do get that a lot. My grandparents were Sephardic. From Turkey.” Apparently, I had given the wrong answer. Apparently, I had given the most grievous answer known to man. Turns out my hygienist wasn’t Persian, but Armenian. And she spent the next ten minutes holding me a little too responsible for the Armenian Genocide, while never once removing her finger from my mouth. “I guess maybe there’s such a thing as a good Turk” she offered with all the resolute conviction of someone reading a ransom note with an off-camera Glock pointed at her head. She then made repeated references to “your people.” My grandparents moved here a hundred years ago. My people are from Encino. As I’ve been known to say, the only things they committed genocide against are pound cake and my self-esteem.

    I can’t say I grew up in a super Jewish home. We were Reform. So reform that our temple had a swimming pool, hence it’s common appellation as the “shul with a pool.” I went to Nursery and Hebrew School there and had my bar mitzvah there, but we were mostly High Holiday kind of Jews. And even then, those services were frequently held in a Presbyterian Church. I did mention this was LA, didn’t I?

    The other thing that muddled my Jewish identity was the fact that I was half-Sephardic (from Turkey) and half-Ashkenazi (from Poland and Austria). I always thought of my parents as just two Valley Jews. Their nearly matching tennis gear didn’t belie some cultural chasm to my ten year-old eye. But apparently, their union had been the Judeo equivalent of an inter-marriage. I never really considered that there was much difference between my grandparents. But looking back, one side, the Bel Air side, were close friends with Richard Nixon. On the other side, the Fairfax side, I had a grandmother so old country that she didn’t drive, pronounced Seattle as “Seatt-Lee” and wouldn’t buy me root beer because a kid shouldn’t drink alcohol. And a grandfather who, I swear, had at least 8 brothers named “Victor.”

    I went to a public elementary school that was so Jewish, I didn’t even realize anyone there was Jewish. I just thought all guys were as bad as me at contact sports. And all girls had frizzy hair and topped out at 5’2.

    My first real understanding that not everyone celebrated Shavuot, came when I entered my Episcopalian middle school. Some of the clues included boys with blond hair, Topsiders, restricted counry clubs, tee times and a group called the Sons of Hitler that drew swastikas on our lockers. I don’t believe they received course credit for their hard work. But they didn’t receive suspensions either. This was back in the day, when “kike” was tossed around as casually and without consequence as “fag.” And if you happened to be a sensitive Jew, you frequently received the daily double.

    I always felt I was a guest at someone else’s school. But by the end of my six years, I started to have fun with it. I was tasked with doing the introductions at our annual debate banquet, where I shared the dais with our school priest and English headmaster. Neither looked particularly overjoyed when I began my comments with “seated on the bima tonight” and then introduced each member of the debate team by their synagogue affiliation. Except for the one Korean guy every debate team had. He, I said, was here representing Fromin’s Delicatessen.

    2016-09-22-1474519803-4968074-ScreenShot20160921at9.49.22PM.png

    In college in the Northeast, I definitely went through a phase where I did everything I could to pass. Not just as Gentile, but as Mayflower, old money Gentile. I had the Bean Bluchers and the Norwegian fisherman’s sweater and the shiksa girlfriend from Miss Porter’s. I played touch football with fraternity brothers overlooking the water in Newport while wearing an Oxford shirt. But this was always an ill-fitting costume. As they say, you can’t hide the hook. That’s my nose. That’s what the hook is referring to.
    I even once tried dying my hair blond, using a homemade brew of lemon juice, Sun-In and peroxide. Instead of blond, I spent a summer with a bright orange mane looking like the evil spawn of Danny Bonaduce, Carrot Top and Bozo the Clown.

    In reality, it’s hard to pass as a Jamestown colonist or a laconic Wyoming sheriff with the last name “Behar.” My wife and I used to joke that if our kids ever wanted to run for the Senate, they could drop the “Behar” and run as “Samantha Robins” or “Jack Andrews.” The latter could also save the State Department from an impending terrorist attack in a Michael Bay movie. Then again, this now feels like a concern from a bygone era. Things have changed so quickly in this country that no name feels more quintessentially American than “Barack Hussein Obama.”

    As an adult, I’ve embraced my Jewishness if not a deep religiosity. Both my kids attend Jewish day school, yet I’ve never been to Israel. “But who’s watching my trees” I ask every time to repeated non-laughter. I call 1000 Island , “Russian dressing” and still see Woody Allen movies mostly out of cultural obligation. I know the V’ahavta by heart (or off-book as I call it). But then again, I still also know the Lord’s Prayer–the gift of Tuesday Episcopal chapel that keeps on giving.

    We consider ourselves a typical American family. Our last big trip was to Charleston. Before that, we went to Austin. Super American, right? But then, after a week of eating our way through Texas and still in a brisket coma, I was pulled out of line at the Austin airport for questioning. For no discernible reason, beyond my swarthy complexion and swarthy outlook.

    It’s possible I’m getting more Jewish as I age. Or the corollary, all old people seem Jewish. Last week, I smuggled a baggy of Trader Joe’s lox into my local bagel store so I wouldn’t have to pay full retail. When did I become everyone’s grandmother?

    So what is the point of all this identity navel-gazing. Two thoughts come to mind. The first is about the Jewish-American experience. And how not everyone’s is the same. We’ve grown accustomed to seeing 20th century Jewry through the same herring-tinted filter. It’s always Ashknazi. It always runs through Brooklyn. And it always seems to be narrated by the same talking heads. We get it, Larry King liked egg creams, stickball and sneaking into Ebbets Field. But my experience has just as many bumuelas and biscochos as tongue sandwiches on rye. And my experience has already been supplanted by the new Jewish immigrant stories from Iran, South Africa, Russia and Israel.

    My second observation is how I/we fit into the overall tapestry of American life. Every immigrant in every group always faces the give and take of full assimilation versus holding on to precious customs. There are days when I’m well aware that I am a Jew in a non-Jewish society. Try spending a day at Disneyland. (It’s also helpful if you want to feel anorexic). But on most days, I just blend in and don’t think about it–a proposition I’m well aware not all groups get to achieve with equal ease. But as I write this final paragraph in the Northridge Starbucks, the only non-Asian or Latino in the room, I see that we all just want to be thought of as American.

    This Teen Is Almost 8 Feet Tall — And Still Growing

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Brown has both, his mother said.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Your Pregnancy Week By Week (Baby Benefits Ed)

    Your Pregnancy Week By Week (Baby Benefits Ed)


    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

    USA Today Columnist Urges Motorists To ‘Run Down’ Protesters On North Carolina Highway

    Conservative USA Today columnist and University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds caused an uproar on Twitter when he urged motorists to drive over protesters blocking a highway in North Carolina. 

    Run them down,” Reynolds, who also produces the Instapundit website, tweeted late Wednesday with an image of the protesters on I-277. 

    Twitter suspended the account, but The Huffington Post preserved a screenshot of the tweet:

    His post inspired many on the social media network to suggest that USA Today and the university drop Reynolds:

    Demonstrations have taken place throughout the city since the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott on Tuesday. Police said Scott was armed and refused to drop his gun; witnesses claimed the 43-year-old black man did not have a weapon and was holding a book.  

    The protests, some of which have turned violent, prompted N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory (R) to declare a state of emergency late Wednesday.

    Internet Racism is a Longstanding Feature of American Politics

    By Jessie Daniels

    Trump’s candidacy appears to have closed the gap between right-wing extremists like longtime Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke and the mainstream in a single campaign cycle. But as someone who has spent more than twenty years studying white supremacist rhetoric before and after the Internet, I view Trump’s rise differently. It is not new but rather a continuation of a trend that has been sped up and amplified by social media.

    This trend involves people hijacking topics that are considered closed in mainstream society and opening them up to debate. Today, this debate happens on Twitter. It gains momentum when cable media feeds them back to the general public. This is why the sharing of a white-supremacist meme should not come as a surprise. It is hardly news.

    In the early 1990s, I made copies of hundreds of publications from groups like David Duke’s National Association for the Advancement of White People and the Ku Klux Klan, which at the time meant travelling to an archive of printed newsletters at the Southern Poverty Law Center. What I copied back then was strange, but eerily familiar.

    The language of these extremist groups was very similar to mainstream political talking points from the early 1990s. When placed side-by-side, David Duke’s call to value European American heritage did not sound that different from conservative political commentator Patrick Buchanan’s 1992 culture war speech. And it was not only the case on the political right, either. Bill Clinton’s vilification of hip-hop artist Sister Souljah shared the extremist view of African American women as particularly threatening to society.

    At the same time, my students were also beginning to encounter white supremacist sites through search terms like “KKK” and even innocuous terms like “Martin Luther King.” These students were not being recruited, but something was happening that I wanted to study. By then, I didn’t need to go to an archive, I could just log on to the Internet, where I discovered a different kind of attack on civil rights. The website Martin Luther King dot org appears to be a tribute site, but it is actually a white supremacist site. It is intended to undermine hard-won civil rights victories by questioning Dr. King’s legacy.

    This is a strategy shared by the white nationalist accounts that Mr. Trump is prone to retweet. Rather than simply shouting racial epithets, white nationalists would rather engage in a “reasoned debate” about ideas that are considered settled in polite society. Notions of the inherent criminality or lasciviousness of black people, or the innate avarice of Jewish people or their “control of the media,” are topics that could be debated, were it not for “political correctness” of Trump and his followers.

    The innovation that Trump brings to white nationalism is to combine his persona from the “Apprentice,” edited to offer a facsimile of realness, with the unfiltered platform of Twitter. The cable news networks have augmented this by covering his tweets as if they are news, allowing him to be a call-in guest and featuring his campaigns events. Trump then leverages this media into political feelings. His gift is the ability to arouse a noxious farrago of emotions among white people, from white resentment and rage to the faux victimhood clustered in the phrase: “We cannot afford to be so politically correct anymore.”

    There is a kind of naïveté among some writers covering Trump who are shocked at his success. But we should not be surprised. In the U.S., we cling to an illusion about our inevitable progress away from a past of slavery, Jim Crow segregation and overt racism. Some of us even hoped that electing the first African American president would mean a post-racial era, but the fact that Stormfront’s servers crashed the night Obama was elected should have made us warier. Trump’s broad appeal should remind us that white supremacy is neither new to the U.S. nor an aberration, but rather it is a consistent feature of our political landscape.

    Autumn — Using The Season To Beat Self-Sabotage

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

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

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

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

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

    Death is here.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    My Father’s Long Goodbye

    I’m listening to the rhythmic gurgling of my father’s breathing as Chet Baker’s mournful trumpet fills the room. Over the last few years I’ve downloaded a sampling of the music Dad used to enjoy to my phone — ’50s jazz, Sinatra, a smattering of Chopin, Mozart and some bossa nova. He loved opera too, but I have my limits. Now when we’re together I play music that I hope might spark some of the delight he used to feel before his mind unraveled.

    Today is another milestone in my father’s decline. I’ve signed us on with hospice to support the nursing staff at his memory care residence in suburban Washington, DC. That’s a tactful way of saying that my father suffers from advanced dementia, lives in a gussied-up nursing home and has recently been rushed to the hospital twice for severe rectal bleeding. He’s been close to kidney failure and other life-threatening ailments this past week, but here we are, back in his own room on a brilliant early September day, waiting for him to die. In the meantime, I’ve grown to love the late jazz musician Chet Baker, his melancholy voice and yearning horn.

    My father’s sleep is punctuated by nonsensical chatter. He occasionally utters intelligible words: “Yes, yes, yes,” or “Okay, okay, okay,” or “No, no, no.” But he’s also said, “Quackety-quack,” along with a host of unrelated syllables that combine to form a new language, his own narrative of a scientist’s complex mind gone to Swiss cheese. When Dad speaks, his usually slack expression takes on a distinct earnestness, so the gobbledygook that emerges is even more jarring. He appears intent on conveying his thoughts and, for a few seconds, you’re hopeful that something coherent will emerge. But that hasn’t happened for a couple of years.

    He awakens for a few minutes every hour I sit by his bedside. “Who are you?” he demands, realizing that he’s not alone.
    “It’s Karla,” I say.
    “Who?”
    “Karla. I’m your daughter, Dad. Remember Karla?”
    “Oh, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.” But I can tell from the vacant look in his watery blue eyes that Karla is an abstract concept, at best.

    He relaxes his head on the avocado pillowcase that has gives his already pale complexion a greenish tinge. Chet’s melancholy rendition of I Get Along Without You Very Well fills the air and, while I find his downbeat crooning a soothing accompaniment to sorting laundry, I decide that the mood isn’t quite right for a return from a life-threatening rectal hemorrhage. I scroll through my music and find the original Broadway soundtrack of My Fair Lady between Michael Jackson and Neil Young. A young Julie Andrews’ joyous I Could Have Danced All Night instantly lifts the somber mood.

    Like a bear rousing from a deep mid-winter sleep, my father’s eyes open and he lifts his heavy head from the pillow. Turning toward the source of the music, he looks at me and a smile begins to shape his dry, pallid lips. His expression is suddenly alert, eyes more focused. His head begins to bob with the beat of the classic Lerner and Loewe song from the album my father played so often during my childhood that even I know all the lyrics some 55 years later.

    I could have danced all night.
    I could have danced all night.
    And still have begged for more.
    I could have spread my wings and done a thousand things
    I’ve never done before.

    I find myself singing the lyrics along with Eliza Doolittle, Julie Andrews’ Cockney flower girl character, her exuberance as contagious as it was when the show debuted in 1956, the year I was born. I can still picture Audrey Hepburn (in the later film version) twirling up the stairs, trailed by a bevy of servants as she revels in the newfound magic of her life. And somewhere in the deep recesses of his cobwebbed mind, I think my father is twirling too.

    I’d downloaded On the Street Where You Live and just as Julie stops dancing all night, her young suitor, the proper gentleman Freddy Eynsford-Hill begins his love song:

    I have often walked down the street before
    But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before.
    All at once am I several stories high
    Knowing I’m on the street where you live.

    I watch my father’s expression as the melodious baritone transports us both back to a more innocent era, a time when it didn’t seem ridiculous for men to lean on wrought iron fences to profess their love for near-strangers.

    And oh, the towering feeling,
    Just to know somehow you are near.
    The overpowering feeling
    That any second you may suddenly appear.

    Dad’s right leg twitches under the blanket and his foot is keeping time with his bobbing head. I’m blinking back tears as I witness the mystical power of My Fair Lady. We’ve listened to music many times before but show tunes are new to us. Not wanting to break the spell I scroll to The Sound of Music on my phone and instantly Julie Andrews is back in the room, singing about her favorite things from the 1965 film.

    Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes,
    Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes,
    Silver white winters that melt into springs,
    These are a few of my favorite things.

    Though Dad is confined to a hospital bed in his unknowable version of hell, I can clearly picture him in the late ’60s reclining on the living room sofa, lights dim, listening to his own favorite things on his extravagant stereo system. My mother would sometimes stretch out beside him, their intimacy evoking an odd mix of embarrassment and pride in my two brothers and me. We’d never seen other kids’ parents embrace like that. It was mushy but kind of cool at the same time.

    My father’s eyes are starting to flicker and soon he’s breathing deeply again. The gurgle is from a lifetime of nicotine, the damage becoming obvious as he rounds the bend toward 90 years of age. He’s asleep once more and I can only hope he’s waltzing with Julie, or Audrey, or perhaps my mother.

    The sun is setting. It’s time for an encore from our moody jazz vocalist. I select the Chet Baker Sings album from my music catalogue and The Thrill is Gone begins. It’s Chet’s debut vocal album from 1954 and his weary resignation now strikes just the right note.

    The thrill is gone.
    I can see it in your eyes.
    I can hear it in your sighs.
    Feel your touch and realize
    The thrill is gone.
    This is the end.
    So why pretend and let it linger on.

    ‘West Wing’ Cast Reunites To Campaign For Hillary Clinton In Ohio

    The cast of “West Wing” is reuniting. Sort-of.

    Several stars of the hit TV show will hit the ground running with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton this weekend, traveling to multiple campaign stops in the Buckeye State. 

    Members of the “West Wing” cast, including Allison Janney (C.J. Cregg), Bradley Whitford (Josh Lyman), Richard Schiff (Toby Ziegler), Dulé Hill (Charlie Young), Mary McCormack (Kate Harper) and Joshua Malina (Will Bailey) will join forces at six different locations on Saturday and Sunday.

    The actors will encourage Ohio residents in Mahoning Valley, Sandusky, Toledo, Cleveland, Dayton and Columbus to register to vote in the battleground state.

    Martin Sheen, who played President Josiah Bartlet, won’t be there, but he’s already endorsed Clinton. And he’s dismissed her Republican rival Donald Trump as an “empty-headed moron.” The president has spoken.

    Overnight Bombardment On Aleppo Kills Dozens Of Syrians

    Overnight bombardment of rebel-held eastern districts of the Syrian city of Aleppo killed 45 people, director of al-Quds hospital Dr. Hamza al-Khatib told Reuters on Thursday.

    Warplanes mounted the heaviest air strikes in months against rebel-held districts of Aleppo overnight, rebel officials and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said earlier. 

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry demanded on Wednesday that Russia and the Syrian government immediately halt flights over Syrian battle zones, in what he called a last chance to salvage a collapsing ceasefire and find a way “out of the carnage”.

    “It was the heaviest airstrikes for months inside Aleppo city. It was very intense. In that area we didn’t see heavy fighting recently,” said Observatory Director Rami Abdulrahman.

    Zakaria Malahifji, head of the Aleppo-based Fastaqim rebel faction’s political office, said it was the most intense bombardment since April. “There is no weapon they didn’t use,” he said, speaking to Reuters from Turkey.

    A senior official in the Levant Front, another Aleppo-based rebel group, also said it was the most intense bombardment in many months. There were 15 raids alone targeting two areas where his group had a presence, he added.

    The rebel officials said weapons used included incendiary bombs. “This is a type of pressure on the opposition. The Russians only want surrender. They have no other solution,” the Levant Front official said.

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

    This article first appeared on QuietRev.com

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

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

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

    Nudges to encourage movement

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

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

    Nudges to encourage healthy eating habits

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

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

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

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

    Nudges to reduce stress and improve well-being

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Why Medicare For Pets Should Be A Thing

    You don’t need to convince Samantha Bonar of Los Angeles about the value of health insurance for her two dogs. Kaya, her Pitbull rescue, recently had more than $ 12,000 in cancer treatment bills paid for by a policy that Bonar has carried for the past year.

    Our pets, thanks to medical advances and greater awareness of preventative care, are living longer ― just like we are. But also just like humans, there is a price tag attached to that greater longevity. Medical bills can be hefty. They can bankrupt you or, in the case of our canine companions, force you to make life-and-death decisions based on your bank account. Yet the value of pet ownership on human health is well-documented. Americans spent more than $ 60 billion on caring for their pets in 2015.

    Three years ago, after Bonar noticed changes in Kaya’s bark, she was told that her otherwise healthy and much beloved Pittie had a laryngeal rhabdomyosarcoma ― a cancerous mass wrapped around her larynx. Kaya had surgery and 20 rounds of radiation at Veterinary Specialty Hospital in San Diego and Bonar paid nearly $ 20,000 out-of-pocket to have her diagnosed and treated. Bonar took on extra work, friends donated money and she received donations from two dog cancer groups. She also dipped into her Roth IRA and borrowed against her home equity to cover Kaya’s care.

     

    In August 2015, Bonar, 47, bought Kaya pet health insurance that costs about $ 45 a month. And good thing she did.

    In January of this year Bonar noticed Kaya had pain in her neck and shoulder that wasn’t getting better. X-rays and an ultrasound first suggested arthritis, then a rotator cuff injury. It wasn’t until Kaya began losing the use of her back legs in July that her vet suspected something more serious. An MRI uncovered a spinal cord mass. It was unclear if it was malignant or not, but Kaya’s vets (a neurologist, oncologist and radiologist) said it was most likely a meningioma, a benign tumor that arises in the meninges, the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord. They all agreed that this was completely unrelated to her earlier throat cancer.

    “Kaya was in bad shape,” said Bonar. “She was in a lot of pain and could barely walk. One vet gave her only three to nine months to live.”

    Healthy Paws, her insurer, stepped up and agreed to pay for the oncologist’s recommended treatment ― a highly targeted form of radiation called stereotactic radiosurgery ― that is commonly used on inoperable brain tumors in humans.

    Bonar had to pay out of pocket (on her credit card) but was reimbursed within a week for 80 percent of the amount from Healthy Paws. The radiosurgery alone cost $ 14,000 and her MRI was $ 3,000. Both were covered. 

    Here’s the unpleasant reality, according to Bonar: “Had I not gotten her the insurance, I would not have gotten her the treatment. I love Kaya to death, but I could not have paid tens of thousands of dollars out of pocket twice. She would have gotten palliative care and indeed probably would have just lived a few more months.”

    Instead, it’s been a month since her treatment and Kaya is back to her normal self, reports Bonar. “Her pain is gone, she is taking walks, running, playing, harassing my other dog, ripping things up ― the usual.” And her prognosis is great. Her tumor is expected to shrink away to nothing over the next year, said Bonar. “If by some chance the radiosurgery missed any of the tumor cells, we can zap it again ― and again the treatment will be paid for by her insurance.”

    All of which raises the question: If having companion animals is so good for us  isn’t there some logic to the idea that having a way to keep them healthier and around longer will mean we ourselves will be healthier? 

    Yes, Medicare for our pets. Why not? It might even reduce our own human need for it.

    Dem Megadonor Tom Steyer Gives Millions More To Bolster Ground Game

    An umbrella organization of labor and progressive groups is ramping up on-the-ground operations in an attempt to propel Hillary Clinton and like-minded Democratic candidates to victory this fall. And they’re getting a multi-million-dollar cash infusion from one of the party’s biggest donors.

    For Our Future PAC, a 501c4 and super PAC organization, is aiming to knock on 5.3 million doors between now and Election Day in a variety of battleground states, representatives of the group told The Huffington Post. The group, which has already reached 2 million households, is the creation of leading labor groups and billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer, who announced on Tuesday that his group NextGen Climate was donating an additional $ 15 million to the cause on top of the $ 5 million it has already given. For Our Future PAC’s total budget is now $ 55 million after starting with a $ 50 million objective.

    The investment in Get Out The Vote operations represents a huge bet that a conventional campaign playbook still matters in this highly unconventional election. With Donald Trump banking on free media and his powers of persuasion to win the presidency, progressives are turning to old-fashioned door-knocking.

    Real change happens through real people and you have to get people where they actually are which requires conversations on the issues they care about,” said Amanda Brown, campaign director for For Our Future PAC. “When there are billions of dollars poured into TV and radio ads, those just don’t hit home in the same way. I think, also, given the nature of the candidates we are choosing between this cycle, what you see on the air is heavy on persuasion, convincing people they have to vote. The work we are doing is to try and empower individuals and make them understand that their power is voting.”

    At its inception, For Our Future caused discord within labor ranks, as several building trade unions scoffed at the alliance with a donor known for his environmental-based opposition to major energy projects like the Keystone Pipeline. But a close election has a way of quieting discord. And the group appears to be gearing up in the closing weeks of the campaign.

    As part of its ramped up ground game, For Our Future has expanded its operations to Missouri and North Carolina in addition to work being done in Nevada, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida (all, tellingly, with Senate races this cycle). Its staff currently numbers more than 700, with the vast majority in those swing states.

    Though Trump has largely passed on building a robust campaign apparatus, an investment in on-the-ground organizing for Democrats does not come without challenges. The party faces significant hurdles with white working-class voters drawn to Trump’s message, millennials turned off by Clinton, and some of the coalition that helped elect Barack Obama twice proving difficult to re-mobilize. To combat that, For Our Future has brought together different entities with ties to unique constituencies.

    The group, for instance, is working with the NAACP as well as Color of Change to engage black voters and bolster community-based activism. It is working with VoteVets, a progressive veterans organization, to do more door-to-door campaigning in addition to its traditional focus on paid media. And, according to notes provided to The Huffington Post, it is assisting several state-specific organizations to micro-target groups of voters. That list includes Make it Works Nevada, Ohio Environmental Council, Equality PA, and Wisconsin Jobs Now.

    “The whole idea is building power up,” said Brown. “So there are a ton of great organizations who have been on the ground in these communities doing work for longer than I’ve been alive. What we are not doing is saying you have to do this differently. Having a trusted messenger is what matters most so we want to make sure we are elevating the good work already happening in that community. That is key.”

    Focusing On Error In Polls Isn’t Sexy, But It’s Necessary

    It’s that point in the election cycle where if you don’t like the results of one poll, you can wait five minutes and another one will come out. People are inundated with numbers, which they might not know how to interpret.

    Polls contain “error” in them, which means the numbers are estimates of what people think, rather than precise data points. Pollsters and journalists will usually provide a “margin of error” that approximates how much the numbers might change due to the random chance of who is selected to participate in the poll.

    But analysts know there’s more error in a poll than this margin indicates. Some say that’s why we shouldn’t report margins of error at all. And we often don’t do a good job of explaining any type of error to audiences.

    Nate Cohn provided an excellent demonstration of polling error not accounted for in a margin of error by having four different sets of pollsters re-analyze data from The New York Times Upshot/ Siena Florida poll. Their results ranged from Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton being 4 points ahead to her GOP opponent Donald Trump ahead by 1 point, using the exact same data but creating their own likely voter calculations. This is an important lesson in non-sampling sources of error: The choices an analyst makes about how to define likely voters can substantially affect the outcome of the poll.

    But Cohn takes the lesson a step further and argues that the existence of these other sources of error mean margin of error wasn’t worth reporting in the original pollClearly, the reported margin of error due to sampling, even when including a design effect (which purports to capture the added uncertainty of weighting), doesn’t even come close to capturing total survey error,” Cohn states. 

    It isn’t actually unusual for polls not to report a margin of error. Some surveys don’t report margins of error or even mention the concept, particularly online surveys which don’t use random sampling ― the basis for a margin of error calculation. But the NYT Upshot/Siena poll was conducted by telephone, and a margin of error typically accompanies these types of polls.

    Not reporting a margin of error brings up a big concern for those of us trying to communicate with readers about polling: If there’s not a prominently listed margin of error, do they understand that there’s error? Do they have any idea how much error there might be? 

    Unlike analysts, who know there’s error and can quickly estimate a margin of error by looking at a poll’s sample size, most readers aren’t thinking about the uncertainty in polling estimates. It’s up to the experts to explain it.

    The question, then, is how best to explain survey error. Cohn chose to mention it, but not give it an exact figure in the poll release story: “All polls, of course, are subject to a margin of error. But the margin of error does not include many other potential sources of error, like the choices of the many undecided voters, or decisions made by pollsters about how to adjust the poll.”

    This is a good start. However, that still leaves readers to wonder just how much error there is in the poll. How much error do surveys usually have? Most non-experts probably don’t have the answer to that question, so could assume the survey only has half a percentage point of error. Or they might assume it has 8 points of error.

    It also still doesn’t address error based on people who couldn’t be reached because of how the poll was conducted (“coverage error,” such as those who rely solely on mobile phones in a landline telephone survey), people who didn’t respond to the survey (“nonresponse error”) and potential bias in how the questions were asked and answers recorded (“measurement error”).

    We should be able to address error better in the polling field. Pollsters release hundreds of polls in an election cycle, often with great care given to how the poll is conducted and how the sample is designed. It’s time to put more care into estimating and describing the error in those polls. Doing so is important to both the general public trying to understand polls and to pollsters themselves: If we’re providing realistic expectations of error, polling “misses” that are actually reasonable based on expected survey error might be better understood.

    But that means putting aside the horserace for a while and focusing on the errors. Unfortunately the horserace is what drives attention and traffic ― and both pollsters and journalists need that to survive in their industries. Technical discussions of error (like this one) aren’t going to get many clicks.

    However, Nate Cohn and the four sets of pollsters he worked with took the time to dive into the errors with very useful results. It’s a lesson many experts will likely use well beyond this year’s election. So maybe the risk is worthwhile.

    7 Things You Need To Know To Tame The Monkey Mind

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

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

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

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

    1. Seek Common Ground and Connection

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

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

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

    When you do this you shift your entire perspective.

    2. Look Deeper Than the Story

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

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

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

    3. Realize YOU Are Not Your Thoughts

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

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

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

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

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

    4. Let Go of Excuses

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

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

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

    5. Develop a Drama Free Mentality

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

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

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

    6. Release Judgement

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

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

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

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

    7. Practice Awareness

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

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

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

    5 Body Imbalances You Might Unknowingly Experience

    By: Cassie Shortsleeve

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

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

    Related: Understanding the Source of Back Pain

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

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

    Related: Simple Stretches for Office Workers

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

    AFL-CIO to Planet Earth: Drop Dead

    At a meeting with the deputy political director of the AFL-CIO during my campaign for Congress, she looked across her desk and told me that I could get major union support by coming out in favor of the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

    That was five years ago. Since then, the nation’s biggest labor federation has continued to serve the fossil fuel industry. Call it union leadership for a dead planet.

    Last week, the AFL-CIO put out a statement from its president, Richard Trumka, under the headline “Dakota Access Pipeline Provides High-Quality Jobs.” The rhetoric was standard flackery for energy conglomerates, declaring “it is fundamentally unfair to hold union members’ livelihoods and their families’ financial security hostage to endless delay.”

    The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is steadfast against the Dakota Access pipeline: “We will not rest until our lands, people, waters, and sacred sites are permanently protected from this destructive pipeline.”

    In sharp contrast to the AFL-CIO’s top echelon, some unions really want to restrain climate change and are now vocally opposing the Dakota pipeline.

    Communications Workers of America has expressed solidarity with members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe “as they fight to protect their community, their land and their water supply.”

    At National Nurses United, Co-President Jean Ross cites “an obligation to step up climate action to protect public health and the future for the generations to follow us.”

    Ross said: “We commend the leaders and members of the Standing Rock Sioux, the many First Nation allies who have joined them, and the environmentalists and other supporters who have participated in the protests against the Dakota Access pipeline.”

    NNU points out that “the proposed 1,172-mile pipeline would carry nearly a half million barrels of dirty crude oil every day across four states.” Ross says that such projects “pose a continual threat to public health from the extraction process through the transport to the refinery.”

    As for the AFL-CIO’s support for the pipeline, NNU’s director of environmental health and social justice was blunt. “We’re deeply disappointed in our labor federation siding with those that would endanger and harm the land, the water, the lives of the people along the pipeline path and the health of the planet itself in the name of profits,” Fernando Losada said.

    He added that the Dakota pipeline is part of “a drive to extract fossil fuel that is untenable for the future of the planet.”

    The nurses union is part of the AFL-CIO, but dominant forces within the federation are committed to corporate energy priorities. Losada said that “some elements in the AFL-CIO” have caused a stance that “is a narrow position in the alleged interests of their members for some short-term jobs.”

    Compare that narrow position to a recent statement from Communications Workers of America: “The labor movement is rooted in the simple and powerful idea of solidarity with all struggles for dignity, justice and respect. CWA will continue to fight against the interests of the 1% and corporate greed and firmly stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe against the environmental and cultural degradation of their community.”

    A venerable labor song has a question for the leaders of the AFL-CIO: Which side are you on?

    When it comes to planetary survival, the answer from the top of the AFL-CIO hierarchy remains: We’re on the wrong side.

    Why Hillary Lost: A Premature Obit

    On the high, crenelated ramparts of Castle Clinton, a chill breeze is stirring ― a faint but gnawing sense that the White Walkers are coming, wearing “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” baseball caps on their skinless noggins.

    If Donald Trump does sack the fortress, no one who lost the battle will want to admit it was Hillary Clinton’s fault. It will have had nothing to do with, say, “transparency” or calling bearded villagers “deplorables” or the Iraq War vote or the simple fact that middle-of-the-road Clintonism ran out of gas as a public philosophy.

    No, other individuals, groups and forces will have to be blamed. In fact, they already are, pre-emptively. If Trump wins, we’re all going to be too busy moving to Canada to read the postmortems (or write them), so we offer them to you now:

    http://www.acrx.org -As millions of Americans strive to deal with the economic downturn,loss of jobs,foreclosures,high cost of gas,and the rising cost of prescription drug cost. Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

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

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

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

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

    American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.
