Donald Trump’s VP Pick Bashed Law To Combat Prison Rape

WASHINGTON ― When Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump announced Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate last week, it was a nod to the conservative establishment. Pence is a safe bet, a midwesterner who gets along with evangelicals, the tea party and House Speaker Paul Ryan. He’s also a far-right politician with a history of chasing political capital at the expense of groups like LGBT Americans. Lesser known is the time Pence took a stand against a federal law to prevent prison rape.

George W. Bush signed the bipartisan Prison Rape Elimination Act, or PREA, in 2003, and the standards were finalized by the Obama administration in 2012. The law aims to combat sexual abuse in correctional facilities through requirements like housing youth separately from adults, firing staff who commit sexual abuse, and granting victims access to medical examinations and emotional support services.

Sex abuse in American lockups is not a hypothetical problem. There were over 8,700 allegations of sexual victimization reported by adult correctional facilities in 2011, according to the Justice Department. Only about 10 percent were substantiated, although many incidents go unreported or un-investigated. LGBT inmates are particularly at risk for abuse: More than a third of transgender inmates held in prisons or jails reported at least one incident of sexual victimization in the previous year.

In 2014, states and territories were supposed to promise, at a minimum, to work toward compliance with the law. More than 40 states did; Indiana was not among them. In a letter to then-U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, Pence said the standards and timeline “cannot be met,” and claimed “there is little empirical data showing these standards to be effective.” He complained his state would have to hire staff and take other steps that would “require a redirection of millions of tax dollars.”

He said Indiana had already taken its own action to change policies in response to PREA, and the Justice Department’s standards worked to “bind the states, and hinder the evolution of even better and safer practices.” He finished his letter by encouraging the administration to “reexamine current expectations” and “provide states greater discretion.”

Pence wasn’t the only Republican governor to take a stand against PREA that year. Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, then a possible contender for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, called the requirements “unnecessarily cumbersome.” The underlying political context was clear: Republicans found an opportunity to fight what they perceived to be another example of overreach by the Obama administration. But a Justice Department staffer pointed out at the time that if states refused to comply, under law they would be “held accountable”—primarily by facing financial penalties.

In the same way Pence backed changes to his state’s so-called religious freedom law after a national outcry, he appeared to change course on PREA. In July 2014, he brought in “new leadership to coordinate public safety,” and directed a review of these issues, said Kara Brooks, a spokeswoman for Pence, in an email. “One of the resulting policy changes was to become compliant with [PREA],” she said, and in 2015, a letter was sent to the Justice Department indicating Indiana’s intentions. Brooks told HuffPost they are “confident” the state will move toward compliance by the end of the year.

When asked by HuffPost why Pence initially tried to defy PREA implementation, Brooks took issue with that characterization. “There were procedural issues with the manner in which DOJ administered the program which made it difficult to have adequate auditors to complete the necessary compliance audits required,” she said.

Advocates working on this issue see it differently. “Governors from across the political spectrum stood together to solve prisoner rape; Gov. Mike Pence was not one of them,” said Chris Daley, deputy executive director of Just Detention International, an organization that seeks to end sexual abuse in detention facilities.

“By rejecting federal efforts to end sexual abuse in Indiana, Pence put his political career ahead of the safety and wellbeing of thousands of people in his custody.”

How We Can Come Together When Our World Is Falling Apart

2016-07-18-1468850246-141222-BWWD30SFX0.jpg
photo by Mike Enerio

Here we are, a week later with more images of terror and broken bodies and weeping after Friday’s attack in Nice. And just as I was about to publish this post yesterday, I learned about the policemen shot in Baton Rouge. Then shortly after, the protests in Cleveland.

It seems we must decide for ourselves if we will become who the media says we are becoming. Or if we won’t. If we will prove them wrong and become something new up and out of all these ashes.
 

I want to be a new. Do you?

 

But it doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It doesn’t happen when we’re huddled up on ” a side” or hiding for fear of it all. It happens in relationship. We’ve got to come together when the world seems to be falling apart.

That’s a pleasant thing to say and a harder thing to do. Not because we don’t want to, but mostly because we don’t know how. Sure we can cling to those who are like us and those who agree with us. But what about those who think, act, and look differently than we do?

How do we come together for real, rather than just throwing words around?

Last week, I wrote about how we must humble ourselves and listen to one another. But what does that look like in action?
 

First, it looks like being honest about our own brokenness. Admitting our fears and hang-ups. Opening the hatch on the junk we tend to keep locked in the trunk.

 

The first step is being humble and admitting to ourselves and to God,

I am broken too. I do things that hurt others and hurt myself. I cannot point to the specks in other people’s eyes until I acknowledge and ask for help removing the 2×4’s in my own.

 

Because the 2×4’s in our own eyes are often the things blurring and skewing our vision. They keep us from seeing clearly what is really going on in the lives of others.
 

Second, it looks like getting to know the 2×4’s in our own eyes.

 

We tend to think of our enemies as outside of us, but the most dangerous one can hide within. The 2×4’s in our own eyes are often set with a strong sense of pride, which makes them hard to see.

We can all use help finding these any day of the week. So, try this…

Consider these statements not only for the inciters and perpetrators of hate and terror, but also for people in your community, your neighborhood, your office, and even your home.

  • He/she does/says ____________, and I would never…
  • He/she is absolutely wrong about _________ because…
  • He/she will is never willing to see my side of_______________.
  • He/she doesn’t deserve my respect because ______________.

Am I saying there are not absolutes in this world when it comes to moral conditions?

Not at all.

But I am saying that judgment is to come not from us but from Elsewhere. And it’s not made based on appearance or what we think we see, it’s evaluated by what’s in a heart.  And you and I can’t see what’s in a heart, what experiences make a heart beat the way it does.
 

So third, we must admit we may not have the whole story.

 

That there is absolutely more to the other person than meets the eye.
 

And fourth, we need to learn something about him or her.

 

We need to lay our 2×4’s down, so we can make eye contact, really see the person with an open mind. Whether the person is warm to our effort or not, we won’t be offended (because remember, we are operating without 2×4’s). We can simply say, “I’m sorry we’re in this spot. How can we figure this out together?” Then, listen.

This is where healing starts in our families, our neighborhoods, and our nation. With acknowledgement of our own brokenness and 2×4’s… then the healing words, “Let’s help each other.”
 

Because we are exponentially more together than we can ever be apart.

 

If we really want to do something about the mess we’re in, then we can apply this process to one person who rubs us wrong this week.

Shall we do it together?

If you are struggling with anxiety and fear in the midst of all this upheaval, here is a free guided meditation for you.

Cher Drags Kate Hudson’s Fabletics In The Best Tweet Of The Day

Hell hath no fury like a Fabletics customer scorned. Just ask Cher.

You may recall last year’s outpouring of outrage surrounding Fabletics, the Kate Hudson-touted athletic wear brand which many unhappy customers took to task over its allegedly shady business practices and scamming behavior.

Well, it took almost a full year, but the songstress/Twitter extraordinaire finally graced the world Monday with her 140 characters on the matter:

“Made mistake of going2 Fabletics.What a pain in the ass. won’t even let u see anything Till u give them ur 1st born !! Felt I Was Being Conned,” she wrote.

Cher joins a long list of people who have claimed the site is hard to navigate, have had issues canceling the subscription service and generally felt scammed by the brand. No word on whether Cher purchased anything on the site, but we have a feeling we’ll hear all about it by way of Twitter if and when she does.

I’mma let you finish, Kanye, Kim and Taylor, but Cher and Fabletics are having the best celebrity feud of the day (even if it’s only a one-way feud).

The Geology of the Modern Cancer Epidemic

The Geology of the Modern Cancer Epidemic


Cancers are on the rise across the world. Except for viral-based cancers, overall cancers are diseases that may be preventable. This book looks at the many levels of determined, probable, and possible causation for several common cancers. These causes include realities found in culture, anthropology, sociology, politics, the environment, agriculture and food, beliefs, and the modern lifestyle. These realities are filtered through the perennial science of Chinese medicine – an ecological system of knowing and understanding the human body as it relates to the world around us. The book covers lung, colorectal, breast, prostate, and virally-caused cancers. It interweaves conventional medical knowledge of these cancers with modern realities of everyday life we all live, and with Chinese medicine interpretations and strategies for treating probable pre-cancerous conditions. This makes it a book that is useful for the practitioner of Chinese medicine. It is also useful for the patient suffering a cancer diagnosis in terms of survivorship and for other medical practitioners who wish to understand how integrated care for cancerous diseases and conditions may relate to Chinese medicine and prevention. The final chapters of the book are dedicated to finding answers for a cure for cancer through making connections between how we live, what we believe, the environment we are creating based on those beliefs, and the social and political mechanisms we now have in place that keep us from change and, therefore, from the cure for cancer. Contents: Water: The San JiaoAir – Lung CancerEarth – Colorectal CancerYin and Qi – Breast CancerYin and Yang – Prostate CancerFire – Chronic Viral Infection and CancerEpigenetics, the Source, and the Precautionary PrincipleThe Geology of HopeConnectionsReadership: Chinese medicine practitioners and other medical practitioners, patients, care givers, interested lay public.

The Illusion of Security

“Please be gentle.”

The story is too easy to believe. At the Memphis airport, a confused, nervous teenager sets off the metal detector — possibly because she has sequins on her shirt — and is told she needs to come to a “sterile area.” Armed guards show up to escort her. She’s terrified.

This happened a year ago. The girl, then 18, is Hannah Cohen. She was flying — at least that was the idea — back to Chattanooga with her mother, Shirley Cohen, who had just passed through the checkpoint and was waiting for Hannah when, according to a lawsuit the family recently filed, a TSA horror story began.

One other thing: Hannah had just undergone what was to be her final treatment for a brain tumor at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis. She’d been going through this treatment since she was 2 years old. The treatment — radiation and surgery — impaired her ability to function: “The brain tumor had left Hannah blind in one eye, deaf in one ear and partially paralyzed,” according to The Guardian. When the guards grabbed her arms, the girl pulled away and tried to escape.

“Seeing the scene begin to unfold, Shirley” — who had a broken foot — “hobbled to a supervisor standing nearby,” the Guardian continues. “‘She is a St Jude’s patient, and she can get confused,’ (Shirley) said. ‘Please be gentle. If I could just help her, it will make things easier.'”

Instead, the guards threw Hannah to the ground, smashing her face. Finally, all her mother could do was snap a photo. The girl was taken away — to jail. Mom and daughter were separated for 24 hours. Hannah finally appeared before a judge. The charges against her were dropped.

A year later, the family filed a lawsuit.

Maybe there’s more to the story than this. An airport spokesperson said as much to a local paper. Cause and effect may be more complex than the photo of Hannah’s bleeding face that hit the news. But whatever the justification, or lack thereof, for the behavior of the airport security guards, what we have is one more example of Authority — the nation’s security apparatus — reacting with brute force to a complex social situation. This does not make us safe.

What we have instead is a bureaucratic illusion of safety. James Bovard, in an op-ed column last year in USA Today, called it “security theater” — a “routine that is far more effective at subjugating Americans than protecting them.” He cited, for instance, an NBC story indicating that Transportation Security Administration agents, in June 2015, failed to detect “95 percent of the weapons and bombs smuggled past them by Inspector General testers,” seeming to suggest that airport security is almost completely pointless.

I say this not to blame the security personnel. They’re doing a difficult job, almost certainly without proper training. And if they’re armed, the complexity of their social encounters magnifies exponentially. As I wrote last December, in the wake of a briefly newsworthy police killing:

“In Chicago, a police officer shoots a teenager walking in the middle of the street 16 times, almost as though the gun took control of the officer’s consciousness. Barbara Ransby, a professor at the University of Illinois, Chicago, interviewed recently by Democracy Now, pointed out that, because of budget cuts, only about 20 Chicago police officers have received crisis intervention training.

“My God, budget cuts! In a country that’s waging perpetual war and raking in billions from the global sale of weapons. Yeah, the boy had been acting erratically. But real public safety for the city of Chicago would have included safety for Laquan McDonald, the 17-year-old killed by police officer Jason Van Dyke.

“I fear we’re reversing the evolutionary process. We’ve surrendered to simplistic, impulsive, fear-based ‘safety’ and we’re reaping the consequences, one broken soul at a time.”

We’re reaping the consequences, indeed. Security is more than a matter of guns and enemies. As we militarize the illusion of security, more and more we become our own worst enemies.

“We imagine a line between good and evil . . .”

These are the words of Philip Zimbardo, addressing an Association of Psychological Science convention some years ago. He continued: “. . . and we like to believe that it’s impermeable. We are good on this side. The bad guys, the bad women, they are on that side, and the bad people never will become good, and the good never will become bad. I’ll say today that’s nonsense. Because that line is … permeable.”

Zimbardo is the researcher who conducted the famously horrifying Stanford Prison Experiment in 1971, in which a group of psychologically healthy male college students were assigned to play the role of prison guards, while another group of college kids were the pseudo-prisoners. Given such power, the guards quickly turned into a collective of sadists. The experiment had to be shut down early. Zimbardo called the phenomenon the Lucifer Effect. Ever since, he’s been sounding the warning that ordinary men and women, in a context of too much power (think, for instance, Abu Ghraib), can cross that line and turn into representatives of evil.

And consider, as Bovard pointed out, that an early TSA motto was “Dominate. Intimidate. Control.”

This is the context in which I hear, all too clearly, a mom call out, “Please be gentle.” And I think about a nation that has no idea how to protect itself.

How Working On My ‘Extrovert Skills’ Made Me A Happier Introvert

This article first appeared on QuietRev.com

“Being introverted doesn’t mean you’re shy.” That’s what I always tell people because when I start talking no one believes I’m an introvert. But it’s only half true: sure, we may not be shy, but many introverts do experience social isolation or feel awkward around new people. I always did. In fact, growing up, I was more than just awkward. I was a nerd.

These days, “nerd” is a cool kid word. Nerds are app developers or people with designer glasses. But when I was a kid, being a nerd was not cool. I was pimply and clumsy and read a lot of sci-fi. My quietness made me seem aloof. And the awkwardness only got worse with time—it’s hard to develop socially when no one wants to talk to you.

As an adult, I wanted to change my quiet ways. I wondered if there was a way to stop being socially awkward and maybe even enjoy talking to people. I guess I wondered if I could be popular.

So, I set out to try.

Extrovert school

True to nerd form, I started with a spreadsheet. I made a list of all the changes I wanted to see and the steps it would take to reach them. Then, I set a challenge to achieve each one.

The first challenge was to initiate five conversations with strangers. Easy, right? But there were rules:

  • Conversations with waiters don’t count. They’re paid to be nice.
  • A person isn’t a “stranger” if a mutual friend introduces them. Too easy.
  • It has to be a real interaction—more than just, “How are you?”

These conversations were a slaughterhouse. I walked up to people and just sort of horned in on whatever they were doing. My first victim was at an art museum. She stood quietly contemplating a painting, and I asked what she thought of it—loudly, from across the room.

She jumped. But to my surprise, she answered. She did not look annoyed.

As she poured her heart out, I mentally made a check mark on my list: one out of five conversations—done! “Thanks,” I said and ran for it. Clearly, I had a long way to go.

The other four were only marginally better, but I did improve. I started to keep the conversation going even if it was boring (as small talk often is). And I learned how to steer toward less boring topics. I asked deeper questions or just brought up topics I liked. As I improved, I felt an odd rush of power. I was in control for once. I tried to use my power for good and do what no extrovert had ever done for me: politely end the conversation when my partner looked bored.

All of this led to one earth-shattering lesson. My other geeky, introverted friends warned me that the challenge was a bad idea. They said they would hate it if a total stranger came up to talk to them and that I would annoy people. But they were wrong. I discovered that most people, both introverted and extroverted, enjoyed these little interactions as long as they were short and fun.

Advanced classes

Soon, I made new challenges. First was to lead my interactions to some kind of next step, like adding someone on Facebook or inviting them to a party. I still have some Facebook friends from this era who, I’m sure, have no idea who I am.  

Then I worked on improving as a conversationalist. Each day, I chose three topics before I left the house. One was a “did you hear…?” (recent news story); one was a “did you know…?” (cool new discovery); and one was a “what if…?” (these were the most fun). And, true to the advice we read in self-help books, I found that everyone enjoys talking about themselves. I learned to ask a lot of questions about the other person. I made it a rule that “What do you do for a living?” was never one of them.

Charging my social battery

One thing I hadn’t thought of was my social energy. I was now better at talking to people and making new friends, but it was exhausting. The definition of introversion is getting your energy from your inner world, not from other people, and I was finding that out the hard way.

There’s more to it than this definition, though. There are four kinds of introversion, and none of them mean you’re doomed to be worn down around others. The drained feeling is because socializing is just a form of multi-tasking, at least when you have a strong inner life to compete with. And multi-tasking saps mental energy whether you’re an introvert or not. I reasoned that if I could get my inner needs met, the people around me wouldn’t feel like a distraction. They wouldn’t sap my energy.

So, I made a list of things I needed to feel high energy. Some, like being well rested and having a snack, were obvious. Others, like finishing the day’s work before socializing, took some figuring out. I now have a social “basket” I fill up before I leave the house, so I no longer feel worn down at parties.

Embracing my introvert nature

You could say that my experiments in socializing were a success. People don’t believe me when I say I’m an introvert, and I have to educate them on what being an introvert actually means. But it’s true that I’m no longer a wallflower. If I concentrate, I can even be the life of the party.

But the biggest lesson was not about my social skills—it was about my introvert skills. Once I became outgoing, I had no shortage of invites. And the former unpopular kid in me wanted to go to them all. I spent long nights at parties only to come home and realize I’d done nothing truly important to me. I had fun going out, but I felt empty.

Only in the last year have I come to embrace my need for solitude. The most important work in my life—my writing—requires days at a time of solitude. I refuse to sacrifice that anymore. Now, if someone invites me out, I can tell them very honestly: “Sorry. I’d like to, but I’m going to stay in and work.” They complain, but I haven’t lost a friend yet.

It’s funny that in order to accept myself as an introvert, I first had to build up my extrovert skills—but I think that’s how it works. When you confront your weaknesses, you discover a striking strength, and that strength makes you shine. You feel more in control of your life.

So, now I’m happy when I’m alone. After all, it’s my choice.  

Have you ever tried to build up your social skills? How did you try to do it? How did it work out?

Should You Go To The Doctor After Fainting? Here’s How To Tell.

Summer’s in full swing, and the hot, sweltering days might make some people more prone to fainting.

Fainting, also known by the medical term syncope, is a momentary loss of consciousness caused by lack of blood flow to the brain. It can strike anyone, and it’s fairly common. Researchers estimate that anywhere between 15 and 39 percent of people will experience fainting at least once in their life, but people who take certain medications may be more prone to feeling dizzy, weak and eventually passing out. Still others may be more prone to fainting for genetic reasons

Syncope can be caused by a wide variety of different conditions, but generally resolves on its own with no harm to the person who fainted. Read on for five common reasons we faint, what we should do if it happens to us or someone nearby, and the warning signs for more serious conditions.

You may have fainted because…

1. You’re dehydrated

Because fainting is caused by a lack of blood flow to the brain, dehydration can up your risk for fainting. It decreases blood volume, which in turn lowers blood pressure. To avoid dehydration in the summer time, drink lots of water and pace yourself if you’re drinking alcohol. Booze further dehydrates your body, which is why large amounts of alcohol and sun are a recipe for fainting.

2. You’ve been standing for a long time

Every wedding season, a few news stories surface of a bridesmaid so overwhelmed by the ceremony that she faints at a crucial moment. While they may be dehydrated (or truly verklempt), the fact that bridesmaids stand still for so long ups the faint factor. The same thing appeared to happen to a hapless British soldier who fainted during a ceremony to celebrate the queen’s birthday this year. 

Standing still for a long time causes blood to pool in the legs and feet, which draws it away from the brain. One way to prevent this, according to Dr. Richard Nicholas of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, is to wiggle your toes, flex your leg muscles and move around slightly when you have to stand for long periods of time. 

3. You saw blood (or had a similar emotional trigger)

For some people, seeing something extremely upsetting like blood is enough to trigger a fainting episode. In this case, fainting happens when a phobic shock triggers a clash between the sympathetic nervous system (which is responsible for the body’s fight-or-flight response) and the parasympathetic system (responsible for the body’s rest-and-digest response).

The clash both slows down the heart rate and causes blood vessels to expand, decreasing blood pressure and starving the brain of oxygen. Some researchers believe that fainting at the sight of blood is actually an evolutionary advantage that forced our ancestors to “play dead” during massacres and battles, ensuring their survival. 

This same nervous system overreaction is also at play when people faint in extremely emotional or high-anxiety situations. Consider, for instance, the Beatles fans who fainted at the sight of their idols, or the father of four daughters who shook and fainted after learning his wife was pregnant with a boy. 

4. You’re exhausted

This is something our founder and editor-in-chief Arianna Huffington is unfortunately all too familiar with. After weeks of running on four to five hours of sleep every night, she fainted from exhaustion in 2007. While most people who faint aren’t harmed from the experience, Huffington was ― she hit her desk on the way down, breaking her cheekbone. The injury required five stitches to repair, and the collapse was a wake up call to change the pace of her life and get more sleep on a regular basis

5. There’s something seriously wrong

Fainting can also be caused by other medical conditions like seizures, low blood sugar, chronically low blood pressure or heartbeat irregularities. In these cases, fainting ― or an event that looks like fainting ― is just one symptom of a more serious condition that could need diagnosis and treatment.

For instance, some people feel dizzy and faint every time they get up from a seated position. This low blood pressure, which is triggered by standing, is called orthostatic hypotension and may be a sign of a more serious condition that should be treated with medicine.

“That’s an extremely serious problem, not because of the fainting per se, but because it reflects dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system in many other ways,” explains Dr. David Robertson, an expert on the autonomic nervous system and a professor of medicine, pharmacology and neurology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

What to do if you see someone faint

Help them lie down on their back, preferably in a cool, shady spot. Prop up their feet slightly to allow any blood that has pooled in the legs to make its way back to the heart and the head, which should revive them promptly. When they awaken, give them some cool water to drink, and eventually see if they can stand and walk on their own.

If they feel absolutely fine and do not have any dizziness, chest pain, belly pain or a headache, there’s probably no cause for concern, experts say.

“If you have a faint and you get them lying down, many people will almost immediately come back to consciousness,” said Robertson.  

How do you know if you’re supposed to see a doctor after fainting?

For most cases of syncope, it will be obvious what triggered the fainting spell: heat, dehydration, standing for long periods of time, or the sight of blood.

Still, no matter what the trigger, if it’s the first time someone has fainted, he or she should make an appointment to see their primary care physician within the week to run some tests and make sure there’s nothing more serious that should have caused the syncope, says Dr. Venkatesh Thiruganasambandamoorthy, a scientist and professor at the Ottawa Hospital and the University of Ottawa who specializes in syncope. If tests have ruled out any serious health problems and a person continues to faint occasionally, then fainting prevention becomes all about avoiding triggers, whether they be alcohol use that leads to dehydration, heat or any other identifiable cause.  

Thiruganasambandamoorthy recently developed a screening tool for emergency department doctors to see whether patients who have fainted should undergo more extensive tests or be quickly discharged from the emergency room. He hopes to use his research to develop an app for first responders and the general public to determine if a faint should be followed by an ER visit. But for now, he recommends that if anyone has a history of heart disease, heart attacks, irregular heartbeat, clots in the lung, heart valve problems, multiple medical problems or a family history of people dropping dead at a young age, they go to an emergency room after a fainting spell.

Most people who faint do not need to go to the emergency room, but for a small minority of people who do faint, the brief loss of consciousness can be a sign that more serious and potentially fatal medical events are on the horizon. Anywhere from seven to 23 percent of people who show up to the emergency room after a fainting spell will have a serious medical event within seven to 30 days, including heart attack, pulmonary embolism, heart arrhythmia and even death. A doctor will be able to tell if someone is at risk of any serious complications, including what signs to watch out for as they recover at home.

Another sign someone should go to the emergency room or urgent care is a lack of identifiable causes or triggers. For instance, if someone fainted while relaxing in their cool home, free of any emotional or anxious stressors, that is a cause for concern, said Robertson. But these cautions apply in only a minority of cases, he emphasized.

“We don’t want to frighten people to death,” said Robertson. “For most people, a faint is a very simple thing.”

Never a Dry Moment

Never a Dry Moment


"Family-friendly comic strips would seem to be nonexistent these days. But there is one-the delightful "Baby Blues"–that kids can read and enjoy with their parents." –"Virginia Parent News" "It’s been a while since there has been a baby in "Baby Blues," but here they go again. Darryl and Wanda, already the parents of two, are adding a third little one to the MacPherson household, and they somehow continue to stay good-humored about life amid the chaos of a household on the grow. "Never a Dry Moment" is the latest collection of the phenomenally popular comic strip. In this latest collection, Zoe and Hammie watch in amazement as their mommy’s pregnancy takes shape–literally. Zoe wonders if her mom’s oversized belly truly is all baby or if it’s also housing a whole box of pudding pops that seems to be missing. "That’s a different bulge," says Wanda. "Check behind me." And Hammie and Zoe still want Wanda to play baseball with them, even if it is just to be the backstop. "Never a Dry Moment" showcases Jerry Scott and Rick Kirkman’s uncanny ability to humorously tap the everyday joys and trials of parenting young children.

Brexit Could Cause UK Charities To Lose Over $200 Million Every Year

After the historic EU referendum, the British pound plummeted on Friday, but that’s just one of a number of financial crises the country can anticipate, experts say.

U.K. charities can expect to lose $ 217 British pounds (about $ 296 million) every year, once Britain separates from EU, according to Britain Stronger in Europe. That’s the amount of money those groups got in funding from the EU in 2014, the most recent year for which such data is available.

Oxfam Great Britain received the most money from the EU that year. It got 39 million British pounds ($ 53 million). The International Rescue Committee got nearly 23 million British Pounds ($ 31.5 million).

While a number of charities and aid groups stand to lose a significant amount of funds, many have resolved to remain focused on their causes, and particularly committed to the refugee crisis as those in favor of separating want Britain to wield more control over immigration issues. 

UNICEF U.K., for example, reaffirmed its support of vulnerable refugees in the wake of Brexit.

“Whether it be tackling poverty, or our role in helping vulnerable refugees in Europe and the world; we must not falter in our commitment to helping vulnerable children wherever they may be,” Mike Penrose, executive director, told Reuters. 

Amid the uncertainty of the fallout, World Vision said it will do whatever it takes to stay on task.

“There are many unanswered questions about Brexit,” Tim Pilkington, chief executive of World Vision, told Reuters, “but, in the meantime, we’ll continue working alongside the U.K. Government to champion the rights of children and to shape policies that achieve this.”

While Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders criticized the decision, it had already separated itself from the EU recently.

The aid group, which brings medical care to conflict zones and underserved areas, declared last Friday that it would no longer accept funds from the EU. 

The announcement came in response to the EU-Turkey deal, which granted Turkey financial and political rewards for halting illegal immigration through its territory.

Last year, the organization received 19 million euros (about $ 21 million) from EU institutions, and 37 million euros ($ 41 million) from member states.

“Deterrence policies sold to the public as humanitarian solutions have only exacerbated the suffering of people in need. There is nothing remotely humanitarian about these policies. It cannot become the norm and must be challenged,” Jerome Oberreit, international secretary general, said in a statement. “MSF will not receive funding from institutions and governments whose policies do so much harm.”

The Power Of Letting Go From The ‘The Pocket Hercules’

Recently a gentleman passed away at the age of 103 that most people have never heard of but how made a great impact in his own unique way.

His name was Monohar Aich. Mr. Aich, lived in Great Britain, and won the title of Mr. Universe in 1952. He stood 4’11” and, in his native India, they called him “The Pocket Hercules.”

An 83-year-old athlete who trained under him at his gym and represented India in three international body building competitions said he was quite a taskmaster: “If you skipped any workout, you’d get a good kick…” Nobody who worked with him ever forgets his coaching: ‘The work was a single-minded dedication and he always cautioned, ‘not to worry about anything’.”

Another individual who used to run his gym said: “He never allowed himself to worry about anything…He took everything as it was, as it came. That was the secret to his success, his happiness and, his long life.”

In a conversation with reporters, Mr. Aich affirmed his dedication and his life purpose saying, “I never allow any sort of tension to grip me. I had to struggle to earn money since my young days, but whatever the situation, I remain happy.”

Mr. Aich didn’t simply practice his principles as a body builder, he lived them as a man. His refrain was ‘as it is.’ This summed up his philosophy of life.

“As it is” reminds me of an old gym friend I knew for many years. Frank was widowed. The last time I saw him he was 96 and shortly thereafter he moved away with his son and family. He began every day the same. He was at the gym when it opened, followed by Mass. Like Mr. Aich, he too had a very simple plan for his life–it was ‘one day at a time.’

Listening to their wisdom got me thinking about the wisdom I too have lived by. In my Deeper Listening I recall the second of seven Vocal Awareness Rituals which is to “Love and Let Go.” It actually took me many years to fully understand what that meant.

The principle came to me near the beginning of my Work over 50 years ago and, as I hadn’t yet truly experienced life, I only understood it spiritually, intellectually. Now, in these later years, I have come to truly understand what “Love and Let Go” means–which is to love one’s Self without judgment, to love others with respect, to let go of fear, anxiety, doubt, stress–anything that disrupts the integrity of who we are, our relationships, our mind/body relationship with Source.

Vocal Awareness teaches that The two greatest fears in life are fear of abandonment and ownership of our power. It can be scary to claim our highest Self and then live accordingly. The act of Loving and Letting Go enables us to take action–responsibility.

So I offer–the next time you sense doubt or fear, worry about what others might think, simply hear the thought, “Love and Let Go.” You will immediately discover the body inhales, physical/emotional tension is released, your internal/external space is quieter. In this transformative moment, a discovery is made–an opportunity revealed.

You still the ‘white noise’ of your body’s broadcast system and instantly feel confident in your own ability and in whatever decision you make. What is revealed is your being your Self, not merely your behavior.

Love and Let Go is a choice. It enables us to choose — to claim the best of who we are, rather than settling for the ordinary.

Losing Weight Is Not a “One Size Fits All” Kind of Plan

It must have something to do with this time of year. The temperature gets warmer, and the clothes get smaller. Sometimes, smaller means tighter. When things are popping out in places they shouldn’t be, our first thought is that we have to diet. Sure, there is never a bad time to change your habits and turn your life around, but there are bad ways to do it. The desired end result is the same for the most of us: fat loss and muscle gain. The road we take to get there may look very different from the next person, though. Don’t be discouraged if you are doing it completely different from someone else, it doesn’t mean you will do better or worse than them. Everyone is different, and we all will see different results.

The main thing you need to worry about is your health. You only have one body, and you (hopefully) want it to last you a while. The best way to make sure you will have a good quality of life in the body you have is by treating it right. Nourishing your body with the essential nutrients and vitamins is key. Food is meant to be treated as fuel, not a treat. Our bodies are made to thrive off of the right foods, so don’t take that for granted. You wouldn’t put cheap, conventional oil in a brand new vehicle, so think of your body in the same way. Natural, organic foods are the best for your body, along with lean proteins and complex carbs.

IIFYM is a very popular nutrition plan followed by body builders and Instagram fitness gurus. If you have an account on My Fitness Pal, you have probably heard of IIFYM, or “If It Fits Your Macros.” By tracking your macronutrients consumed daily, you can make sure you are eating the right ratio of fat to protein to carbohydrates in order to lose fat. This way of life has brought hope to carb lovers everywhere, because it stresses how important carbs are to burning fat while working out. In a world where carbs are the enemy, IIFYM has changed the way many of us think about macros.

“Fad” diets are another way to lose weight that most people are more familiar with. Most promise fast weight loss, with little effort; these claims bring many desperate people to the table. Fad diets are defined by eating plans that are usually restrictive or exclusive, banning certain foods or suggesting that you eat one kind of food for a determined amount of time. Those are the fad diets that you need to avoid at all costs. There are other diets that have been considered “fad” but aren’t dangerously restrictive, like the GM Diet and the Military Diet. These kinds have a detailed food plan that you are supposed to stick to, and some people find great success.

As long as you listen to your body and make sure you are getting the nourishment you need, you are doing fine. Do I suggest intermittent fasting, even though “scientists” have claimed it’s not harmful? Heck no. I don’t stand behind any diet that suggests you should starve, or “fast” as they call it. Just do your best, and don’t be too hard on yourself. Realize that we are all only human, and that means we are not perfect. If you get too caught up in trying to lose weight you may just hurt yourself more mentally, and even physically. Take it day by day, and find the right balance for yourself. As long as you feel good in your body, that is all that matters.

5 Everyday, Changeable Behaviors That Burn Us Out

In all likelihood, you know what burnout feels like: Exhaustion, disinterest, poor performance, irritability, lack of empathy.

The media often claims it’s caused by bad work environments; bad coworkers; bad bosses. This is partially true: Employees with large caseloads experience burnout more often. And individuals whose jobs revolve around people–such as social workers, customer service representatives, teachers, nurses and police officers–are particularly predisposed it.

Yet research also shows that some employees are more likely to burn out than others in identical work environments. Burnout is weakly correlated to stressful life events but closely linked to traits such as neuroticism and low self-esteem. The evidence for burnout’s internal risk factors is, indeed, well established: A study published in Work and Stress concluded that “Employee personality is consistently related to burnout.”

Common burnout prescriptions–like rest, medication and vacation–can temporarily relieve our symptoms. But until we permanently alter the behaviors exacerbating our exhaustion, we’ll remain rutted in perpetual recovery. Because, after all, what we do is inextricably linked to how we feel.

Below are five changeable behaviors that fuel burnout:

1. Lack of focus

Millennials are particularly vulnerable to existential distraction. Author Kelly Cutrone told Forbes, “They don’t know what they are striving for, which makes it really hard to move forward.” Or do anything, for that matter (I’d know!).

Or sometimes we know our calling at our core but don’t pursue it. One study found that incongruence between implicit and explicit motives decreases wellbeing. Translation: saying or doing stuff we don’t actually want is unhealthy. If you’re still parading as a will-be [insert parents’/prestigious profession here] but deep down know that’s not your passion, your burnout will call your bluff. Individuals who act on their internal motivations, in contrast, are less likely to suffer from job burnout.

Choose what you want to do carefully, and then commit wholeheartedly. One study found that professional commitment even has a buffering effect on the development of illness.

2. Self-obsession

Self-obsession materializes in several ways. The most obvious is narcissism, which is linked to burnout among students. In the workplace, narcissism can manifest as conviction of specialness, entitlement, poor teamwork or lack of compassion.

Another common but disguised symptom of self-obsession is rumination: neurotic self-attentiveness and/or heavily emotion-oriented coping. One example of ruminating is dwelling on personal injustices. Teachers who ruminate report higher stress levels and burn out more frequently.

How do we overcome self-obsession?

Help people. You don’t need to feed Africa to benefit from altruism–a trait overwhelmingly linked to higher wellbeing and lower stress. Instead of airing your grievances every time you’re out, listen to and support the people around you. Volunteer. Call your mom.

Be kind to yourself. Interestingly, self-compassion–“treating oneself warmly during times of hardship”–is negatively correlated with rumination; you can be kind to yourself without fixating on yourself. Instead of freaking out about something you did wrong at work for days, take responsibility, forgive yourself and move on. Simple but hard!

3. Perfectionism

Unhealthy perfectionism–fixation on flawless performance, dread of failure and obsessive approval seeking–predicts burnout. Likewise, acting “Type A” is related to emotional exhaustion, higher burnout levels and reduced job satisfaction. It’s also, incidentally, an established risk factor for coronary heart disease.

Moreover, because perfectionism causes highly negative feelings when we don’t attain goals, it lowers individual initiative and decreases job passion over time. That is, though perfectionism is typically considered a professional attribute, it’s ultimately demotivating.

Is the anxiety-fraught emotional energy you’re spending on every one of your tasks worth the cost?

4. Seclusion

When we’re exhausted, it’s tempting to watch Netflix alone after work to “rejuvenate”–for months. Self-care is critical, especially when recovering from burnout. But, counterintuitively, one of the best ways to take care of ourselves (and prevent future burnout) is social interaction.

Workplace friendships increase individual innovation and weaken the relationship between unhealthy perfectionism and job burnout. Teachers with higher perceived levels of coworker support report less stress.

By contrast, workers’ inability or unwillingness to be intimate with others–what some researchers call social pessimism–predicts poor subjective wellbeing at work.  

Instead of adopting a sweeping, unrealistic resolution like “always say yes to invitations”, consider what kinds of people and social engagements energize you. Remember that hanging out with anxious people may, in turn, make you anxious. Cherry-pick who you’re around, and prioritize these relationships.

5. Pessimism

Of all the above traits, pessimism is the one most closely and frequently associated with burnout. Cynical employees are less likely to seek challenges, social support and feedback at work. The consequence is insufficient resources and impending burnout. Pessimism produces more stress hormones, while optimism is associated with less burnout and job exhaustion.

In one study, asthmatics inhaled basic saline solutions. Those told the solution didn’t do anything experienced no symptoms. Of those told they were instead inhaling allergens, 47.5% experienced attacks. What we believe about our environments directly affects our energy, health and wellbeing–regardless of the reality.

It’s not fair or accurate to say that burnout is all in our heads. But our attitude pertains more to how we feel about work than we might think.


Burnout doesn’t just reduce job satisfaction. Chronically burned out workers exhibit poor memory and difficulty concentrating. They’re also more likely to experience depression, anxiety, headaches, gastrointestinal infections, sleep disturbance and neck pain. They disproportionately suffer from alcoholism and cardiovascular disease. One ten-year study concluded that “burnout, especially work-related exhaustion, may be a risk for overall survival.”

But don’t take it from me or from science. Try eliminating even one of these behaviors for a week and see what happens. For this sapped nation’s sake, I hope you’ll share your success.

Just One Day Without Trump’s Name

2016-06-05-1465149797-6021173-search1.jpg

I am calling for a one-day ban on speaking the name of “Donald Trump.” No joke. (Well, it has to be something of a joke when you reference him, but I am serious about this.) Mark the day – Friday, June 17. I have arbitrarily picked that as NUT Day – “No Utterance of Trump” Day. That gives social media time enough to spread the word and is close enough that I may just be able to hold it together until then…

A therapist I know (OK, you got me – my therapist) says she’s noticed a noticeable uptick of late in patients complaining of a Trump fixation. They say they are obsessed with him. They say they are riddled with anxiety, catastrophizing (one of my favorite words and one of my least favorite afflictions,) and finding every conversation gravitating towards Trump like one of the Millennium Falcons in the grip of the Death Star’s tractor beam. References to the late days of the Weimar Republic are catching up with us all. We may not be able to recruit the Legion of Lemmings – the GOP, the NRA, and the KKK – but that leaves plenty to work with. Get on it! You know you need it as much as I do.

Besides, there is plenty of historical precedence for such a movement. Classical history and literature are rich with names that could not be spoken. Who could forget the Three Stooges (funny how they come to mind thinking of Trump) and how the mere mention of “Niagara Falls” by Curly triggered a violent reaction in Moe – “Slowly I turn…step by step…” Then there’s Harry Potter and his ilk who had He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, referencing the dark Lord Voldemort. And other historical references far too numerous to mention. (I am learning from Trump how to turn ignorance into evidence.)

2016-06-05-1465150310-7658475-static1.squarespace.jpg

I am not wedded to the name – “No Utterance of Trump.” I could live with “National Sanity Day,” or maybe “Enough Fruitcake Day.” I don’t really care what we call it, I just know that enduring endless days of marinating in Trump Mania is bad for the nation’s psyche – and mine.

You psychologists out there- you specialists in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – CBT – (Clear the Brain of Trump) – I appeal to you to weigh in and help us reframe our thoughts on this very special day, when we may escape the chants of “Make America Great Again,” and all the grainy footage of the Nuremberg Rallies that run in our minds, and help us remember a time when a not-so-great-America used phrases like “Give us your tired, your poor.” Could we not spend the day reading Good Republicans like Lincoln – “I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday” – or Dwight D. Eisenhower, who, in helping to save the world, accomplished nearly as much as Trump – “Any man who wants to be president is either an egomaniac or crazy.” (He can be forgiven for the use of “either,” never having met Mr. Trump.) I feel pretty comfortable in saying that both Lincoln and Eisenhower would have supported a day free of the man.

Yes, it’s just a day but hopefully, in the aftermath of the election, no such declaration will be needed. In that case this will all just be good practice for living in a world where deep pockets, loose marbles and big mouths are not mistaken for presidential stock. And if I am wrong, and it’s Donald’s hand on the Bible next January, (horribile dictu) well I’m guessing Prozac sales will go through the roof, the passport office will be overwhelmed, and our allies and enemies will be all forgiveness and forging new alliances in the hope of surviving the incoming fusillade of ego and willful ignorance.

So one day, that’s all I ask. One day free of him, one day when everything is not upside down, when humility is again seen as a virtue, and when our coins will be stamped “e pluribus unum,” not “every (white) man for himself.” How about it?

Low Self-esteem Is Your Ego’s Best Buddy

The Dalai Lama met with a group of western psychotherapists. He asked them what was the most prevalent issue that they encountered in their clients. They unanimously replied that it was low self-esteem.

Apparently the Dalai Lama hadn’t heard of such a problem. He said that in the Tibetan culture children are not raised to have self-esteem as a problem. How different it is in the west!

We spend our whole lives living with ourselves; it is the longest and most intimate of all our relationships. So isn’t it obvious that we should be loving ourselves?

Yet we dislike ourselves so easily and are constantly finding fault. We’re beset with doubts: if I say the wrong thing will people laugh at me? Am I good enough? How can anyone like me? What am I doing with my life? Why can’t I do anything right?

As soon as that negative voice in our heads says: “You’re no good, you’re worthless”, and we believe it, then Gotcha! As long as that voice rules, we lose.

It seems absurb that we should dislike the one person we spend our life with. We have the opportunity for the most sustaining love affair of all and instead we criticize and invalidate, dismissing ourselves and our needs as unimportant.

But all is not lost! There is no one more deserving of love than ourselves, and in every moment we have the opportunity to understand this.

As it is the nature of the ego to keep us thinking we are hopeless, so it is our job to be constantly aware of its mind-games. When we do this we get to feel at home within ourselves, to feel comfortable in our own skin.

In times of stillness we create a space where low self-esteem, self-doubt, fear, mistrust, or any other emotion may come, be seen, and pass through. Whatever arises is just thoughts, and we have the intelligence, discrimination, and skillful means to see it for what it is.

As Zen master Shunryu Suzuki said:`
Leave your front door
and your back door open.
Allow your thoughts
to come and go.
Just don’t serve them tea.

If we struggle or deny anything then it will haunt us wherever we go; if we hold on, then it is the ego holding onto the need for recognition. When we witness without denial or attachment, then self-doubt has no power and can no longer affects us.

Making friends with our own minds shows us that beneath even the darkest difficulty is the happiness of our true nature. What a relief!

In 2016, Will Arnold Schwarzenegger Bust a Colin Powell of 2008?

Will California Republicans’ ‘Last Action Hero,’ Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, rally behind his party’s presumptive nominee? That’s the head scratching question most viewers who watched Meet The Press on NBC yesterday were pondering after the Governor dodged the issue of whether or not he’ll endorse the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee, Donald Trump, before California’s June 7th primary.

The Governor’s hesitancy underscores Trump’s continued challenges when it comes to coalescing support and developing synergy with GOP leaders as he pivots to the general election. Just last week Trump was grappling with the issue of why New Mexico’s Republican Governor and chair of the Republican Governors Association, Susana Martinez, hadn’t backed his candidacy. By evading repeated inquiries on Meet The Press yesterday, it also raised questions of whether or not Governor Schwarzenegger, like Martinez, will ever even endorse Trump.

After all, Schwarzenegger is a California Republican. He came out in support of gay marriage, calling the U.S. Supreme Court’s move “the right decision.” Schwarzenegger also broke with party orthodoxy to recognize climate change and signed arguably one of the most sweeping environmental laws in the nation, AB32 the Global Warming Solutions Act, which taxed carbon in an effort to reduce greenhouse gases.

There’s no doubt that Schwarzenegger and Trump have many similarities. They were cut from the same political cloth in terms of taking the Republican Party by storm and starting their campaigns with sky-high name identification which stemmed from their celebrity status. Both Republicans also come from big coastal cities, and they share a shoot from the hip approach when it comes to campaigns and attacking their opponents. Beyond these optical elements, however, there’s not much else they share.

In the Republican primary, Schwarzenegger enthusiastically endorsed and campaigned for Ohio Governor John Kasich. The move made sense given his deep ties to Ohio, the hub of the yearly bodybuilding competition called Arnold Classic Worldwide. And because of his relationship with Kasich, who has refused to endorse Trump or even contemplate serving as his Vice Presidential running mate, Schwarzenegger may be reluctant to side with Trump.

Furthermore, since leaving office, Schwarzenegger has spent much of his time establishing and promoting the Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy at the University of California (USC). There, he’s advanced a dialogue around many of the ideas he worked to champion as Governor. One issue in particular that has gobbled up a significant portion of his post Governorship time is addressing climate change.

Saying climate change is “the issue of our time,” Schwarzenegger has frequently debated its deniers. In 2015, he spent a week with California’s Democratic Governor Jerry Brown in Paris, working to advocate for the United Nations Paris Agreement. He’s even founded organization’s like R20 Regions of Climate Action that are laser focused on combatting global warming.

Schwarzenegger’s work and passion surrounding reducing greenhouse gases and curbing the impacts of climate change stand in sharp contrast with the philosophy of the Republican Party’s new standard bearer. Notably, the day Trump announced that he clinched the 1,237 delegate threshold to become the Party’s official nominee, he was in North Dakota to give a speech on his vision for energy policy at an oil conference.

During his remarks, Trump vowed to scrap the Paris climate change agreement, increase fossil fuel drilling, slash environmental regulations and advance the Keystone XL pipeline. Even worse, in 2012 he tweeted, “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.” Back in March, Trump said that as President, he would eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Last week, he denied that there was a drought crisis in California.

In light of Trump’s plans to obliterate all the recent progress that both the nation and California have made in recognizing and dealing with climate change, clearly a life calling issue for Schwarzenegger, how does the former Governor figure all this into his political calculation when it comes to making an endorsement?

Does Schwarzenegger line up behind his Party’s new leader or does he embrace the mission statement at the USC Schwarzenegger Institute, which reads, “is committed to advancing post-partisanship, where leaders put people over political parties and work together to find the best ideas and solutions to benefit the people they serve.”

In 2008, former Secretary of State and U.S. General Colin Powell bucked his own Republican Party and endorsed Barack Obama for President. The question is, will Schwarzenegger pull a Powell in 2016 by putting people over political party and back a candidate who recognizes global warming and is determined to tackle it head on, rather than a candidate who clearly still denies it.

And if so, will it even make a difference?

With one week left before California’s primary, many eyes will begin turning towards Schwarzenegger to see if his eagerness to address climate change outweighs his allegiance to the Republican Party.

My Memorial Day Tribute to Someone Who Told Me to Travel

Memorial Day is something that should be celebrated more than just once a year. To me, memories are the most valuable thing you can poses, and remembrance is the highest value that someone can leave once they’re gone. I know that Memorial Day is meant to specifically honor our past and present soldiers, but for me it has more of an impact because of how much it impacted my grandfather; a World War II Ex-Prisoner of War, who before his last days, finally told me to travel.

He hadn’t really said it before, in fact, up until his last few months, all I’d ever hear was “When are you moving back home?” or “When are you getting married?” I won’t lie and say it didn’t make me feel bad, especially when I had moved myself across the country and was constantly leaving to go travel to other countries as well.

But I always knew it was because he wanted to protect me, just like he had fought to protect our country, even though at the time, he was a resident of Cuba! Being a prisoner of war left a heavy impact on my grandfather, and the few that were closest to him could easily see it. As the “apple of his eye” or so what my family would call me, I could see the deep scars that the war left on my grandpa, but more importantly, I could see the immense magnitude of pride he had for what he did and how it affected him.

Aside from sitting next to me at any family meal since I was a kid so he could eat all the leftovers from my plate, and constantly teasing that I was “as skinny as he was when he came out of the German jail”, I also distinctly remember him proudly wearing his Ex-Prisoner of War hat on any Veteran holiday, even up until his last couple of months. Well, I also remember him saying we had to drink cognac on these holidays, because he claimed that was the first thing they found after being freed from captivity, but that’s not as easy to carry around the world in my backpack as his hat is.

That being said, I’ve traveled around the world with my grandfather’s Ex-Prisoner of War hat with me, since he passed away last August. I know how proud he was to wear that hat, so it makes me proud to not only honor him as a POW/MIA, but to honor one of the last things he said to me; “That’s the thing you do that I love the most: travel.”

In the 10 months since he passed, I’ve traveled to 12 countries, 4 continents, and have seen 4 World Wonders. And with every place in the world that I go, I remember him, his life, and his legacy, so here is my tribute to him!

Forget the Gym: 5 Exercises That Don’t Require a Membership

The best way to get — and stay — in shape is to enjoy your workout experience. No matter your fitness level or preferred form of exercise, the key to success is sticking with it. And we all know that having a gym membership doesn’t automatically mean that we’ll use it.

If getting yourself to the gym is, itself, a workout, or you don’t have money for a membership, take heart! Here are 5 exercises you can do on your own to firm your muscles and tone your body that don’t require a gym:

2016-05-30-1464620378-4063435-workout.jpg

Five Free Exercises That Only Need Gravity and Your Own Body

1. Stairs

Who needs the dreaded StairMaster when there are actual stairs to conquer? If you are looking for a great cardio workout that also doubles as strength training for your lower body, go find your nearest staircase – whether in a building, a stadium or even at home. Running up a set of stairs for 30 minutes is a high-intensity workout that not only targets every muscle in your lower body, including hips, calves, glutes and quads, but also burns a lot of calories.

But don’t worry if you are not yet ready for a high-intensity step workout. It’s okay to start slow! Take the stairs instead of the elevator. When it comes to physical activity, every single step counts. The more active you are, the more energy you will feel.


2. Squats

If you are looking for a low-impact workout to do without leaving your home, squats are an excellent option. They can be done anywhere since they only require your own body weight. Not only do squats help tone your thighs and buttocks, they can also improve your posture, circulation and even digestion.

So, how do you do squats? Stand straight with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms at your side. Lower your body as if into a sitting position, with your body weight resting in your heels. As you lower into the squat position, raise your arms straight out in front of you for balance. Once you are in the squat, imagine a seat behind you forcing you to keep your back straight. Pause for about 10-30 seconds, depending upon how you feel, then return to the starting position.

Repeat as many times as you can while holding each squat for 30 seconds. If this is too hard, try staying in the squat position for 10 seconds. As you progress, you can slowly increase to 15-20 seconds and then gradually build up to 30 seconds. Eventually, try holding each squat for a minute. You can also try variations, including squatting deeper or with a weight in each hand.

3. Planks

If you want to focus on strengthening your core, shoulders, triceps, glutes and forearms, planks are for you. All you need is yourself and a ground surface, whether an inside floor, or outdoors at the beach or on grass.

Begin as if you are about to do a push-up. Then, rest the weight of your upper body on your forearms, which need to be shoulder-width apart. Keep your stomach and glutes tight and your entire body straight. Keep your buttocks from sticking up in the air. Hold the position for 30 seconds to a minute, then rest for 30 seconds between each set. Again, as with the squats, if 30 seconds is too challenging, try holding the position for 5-10 seconds at first. The aim is to feel empowered, not intimidated. So feel free to build up your endurance slowly. For variety, you can also go from your forearms to a regular push-up position, with your arms extended, every 5-10 seconds.

4. Pull-Ups and/or Chin-Ups

Remember recess during elementary school, when everyone gathered on the monkey bars? Now’s your chance to revisit your youth and gain strength in the process. Pull-ups and chin-ups are great exercises for strengthening and toning your shoulders, back, chest and biceps. You can use either an overhand or underhand grip. All you need is a park or even a bar in a doorway at home.

For those of you who never liked the monkey bars or find pull-ups and chin-ups too hard, you can build or tone your upper body by doing push-ups against a wall. Stand with your left side about 1-2 feet from the wall. Wrap your left arm around your body so that your left hand will hug your right side. Then, reach your right arm across your chest, placing your palm on the wall.

Touch the wall with your left shoulder, then push off the wall with your right hand, moving your body away from the wall. Lean back into the wall immediately, and push off again with your right hand. Continue these reps for 30 seconds. Then switch sides.


5. Jogging/Running/Walking

No matter your current level of fitness, running, jogging or walking are great, affordable ways to improve your overall health. Plus you can do it anywhere! You strengthen your heart and legs, tone your body’s muscles and burn calories. Whether you engage in casual walking, high-intensity sprints, running hills or jogging around the neighborhood, the important thing is to get your body moving on a regular basis. So take the dog for a jog, join a running group, or simply park the car father away from your destination than you need to for increased walking. Just get in those extra steps regularly, no matter the pace.


Find What Works For You

There are many ways to achieve your fitness goals that don’t include a gym membership. Take the time to find out how you can incorporate exercise into your daily life. The results are worth it! And no matter your preferred workout, keep in mind that good nutrition and spiritual balance is also part of healthy living.

What are your favorite forms of exercise to do outside of a gym? We want to know, so share with us!

The Watergate First Charmed Washington, Then Scandalized America: With a Face-Lift, It’s Ready for the Next Half-Century

On June 16, 1972, five men dined together for the last time in the restaurant of the Watergate Hotel. A few hours later they taped open the door to a stairwell in the adjacent building and broke into the offices of the Democratic National Committee.

American politics – and the Watergate complex – would never be the same.

The Watergate Hotel reopens this month, following an extensive renovation that honors the building’s midcentury modern pedigree. There is a new whiskey bar and a rooftop lounge overlooking the Potomac. The costume designer for the television series “Mad Men” was tapped to outfit the hotel’s staff.

The reopening of the Watergate Hotel marks the latest chapter in the roller-coaster history of this famous – and to Americans above a certain age, infamous – complex, which includes three co-op apartment buildings and two office towers.

At the outset, when the building still only existed in blueprints, the Watergate was controversial. Luigi Moretti, the Italian architect on the project, considered Washington drab and conformist. He designed a series of curved buildings with no right angles. The Washington Post architecture critic panned it, as did David Finley, president of the National Gallery of Art and chairman of the powerful Commission on Fine Arts.

But the building also had its champions who were drawn to thebold and striking design. An undeniable part of the Watergate’s original appeal was that it was Italian, at a time when Oleg Cassini designed gowns for Jackie Kennedy and Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita” was filling American movie theaters. It was the first “mixed use” complex in the District- putting apartments, offices, a hotel and other amenities – including a florist, bakery a wine shop – all in the same place. The curved exterior panels and balconies were designed with the aid of a computer – another first.

The Watergate was launched with the fanfare of a Hollywood movie premiere. In October 1965, Washingtonians stood in line for a chance to gaze at the over-the-top model apartment in Watergate East, with its hand-painted ceilings and marble floors. A thousand guests attended the building’s grand opening.

In 1969, during the first months of the Nixon Administration, LIFE magazine profiled the complex in an 8-page feature proclaiming: “Just everybody lives there.” Residents at the time included Attorney General John Mitchell and his outspoken wife, Martha; Anna Chennault, the glamorous widow of famed aviator General Claire Chennault; Audrey Mars, an heiress to the Mars candy fortune; a bipartisan roster of Senators and Members of Congress; and a platoon of lobbyists, journalists and diplomats.

The 1972 break-in, followed by Nixon’s resignation in 1974, put a serious dent in the Watergate’s reputation. Unwelcome tourists descended on the building and high-end retailers decamped for Chevy Chase. It seemed every political scandal thereafter was assigned a “-gate” suffix.

The Watergate got its second wind during the 1980s, when well-heeled California friends of the Reagans took up residence, including Betsy and Alfred Bloomingdale and Leonore and Walter Annenberg. Mrs. Reagan was a regular at the Watergate Hotel’s Restaurant Jean Louis, and the Reagans celebrated Christmas Eve with USIA Director Charlie Wick and his wife Jane in their Watergate apartment.

Democrats put down roots at the Watergate, of course. Former Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara lived there, as did Democratic National Committee chairman Robert Strauss. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg still calls the Watergate home.

In some ways, the Watergate was something of a college dorm for Washington powerbrokers. It was part fishbowl, part pressure-cooker. Partisan rivals shared elevators down to the underground parking lot or the occasional nightcap at the hotel bar. Rose Mary Woods, personal secretary to President Nixon, and Juanita Roberts, LBJ’s personal secretary, both lived there. At the height of the Clinton impeachment fight, retired Senator Bob Dole lived next door to Monica Lewinsky.

Because residents of the Watergate were some of Washington’s toughest power players, everyday matters were sometimes the subject of intense maneuvering. The co-op board of Watergate East reportedly rejected then-Vice President Hubert Humphrey, expressing concern about the impact of Secret Service restrictions on elevator availability. Thomas “Tommy the Cork” Corcoran, a Watergate resident and America’s first “super-lobbyist,” blocked a deal worked out between the developers and the adjacent Kennedy Center that would place offices in the fifth and final building directly across from the apartments of Watergate East. When a prior owner of the hotel sought permission to convert it into 96 condominium apartments, with prices up to $ 9 million, residents not only stopped the plan, they successfully placed the entire complex on the National Register of Historic Places.

Today, a new generation of Washingtonians awaits a first look at a rejuvenated Watergate Hotel. Perhaps a new crop of Cabinet members and White House aides will make the Watergate their home beginning next year, with a change in administrations. Will the Watergate’s next half-century eclipse the reputation gained in its first? It might depend on who picks up the check at the whiskey bar.

I Thought That Infertility Was a White Woman’s Disease

I thought that infertility was a white woman’s disease. Even though I worked in academia aka the land of infertility, where women faculty are often compelled to postpone having children to achieve tenure, I still didn’t believe infertility had anything to do with me. Every time someone mentioned an infertility treatment, I nodded, and then I silently thanked god that I was a black woman and that there was at least one thing that I didn’t have to worry about.

Despite having a Ph.D. and training in critical race studies, I bought into the idea that black women are more fertile than white women. Intellectually, I knew that historical myths about oversexed, fruitful black women had been at the root of racist practices and beliefs, from the institution of slavery to the image of the welfare queen. But somewhere along the way, I had come to believe the very racist ideas that I had spent my career as a professor trying to dismantle.

I grew up in the South, surrounded by a community of black women who made it their job to make sure black girls did not get pregnant. Whenever a beautiful brown girl’s belly grew shiny and round until it was so high that she looked like she was about to float off the ground, they began their chorus: “No more fun for her…It’s all about that baby now…That baby will be hers forever…You better stop studying them boys and get your lesson.” The women who said these things loved these girls, and some of them had been these girls. They would pull out old cribs, and throw baby showers to make sure that the new mothers had everything that they needed. But the girls’ round bellies had transformed these teenagers from signs of promise to reminders of a time when poor black women had few options for a future beyond reproduction. So when the women loved on the surprise babies, they still grieved what they believed these girls-turned-women had lost. And, they never stopped giving the side-eye to the rest of us, warning us about what Boone’s Farm and Barry White would get you.

It was good advice. I heeded their warnings and kept my ovaries bathed in birth control hormones for much of my adult life. I waited for the completion of college, then a Ph.D., the publication of a first book, and eventually tenure at a college, to have children. But no one ever warned me that when I phoned my ovaries to tell them to wake up because I was ready, they might not answer.

Black women are actually 1.5 times more likely to experience infertility than their white counter parts.

After trying to get pregnant for months with no success, I decided to use my academic research skills to find a solution. Surely we all know where babies come from, I thought. How hard could it be? Clearly I was missing some essential secret. I was standing up too soon post-coitus or taking too many hot baths, boiling my ova like Easter eggs. I consulted internet discussion boards and began studying a book that posters referred to as the hippy bible of fertility. I took my temperature every morning and creating charts to track ovulation. I also began trying every trick posted by women who indicated their successful pregnancies with animations of bouncing babies at the end of their posts. Some claimed that they took copious amounts of expectorant to try to create more cervical mucous. When I tried it, I got a sore throat from postnasal drip and eye snot so persistent that I looked like a sad clown who was still learning to apply the make-up. Other posters repurposed menstrual cups to trap sperm and did things with egg whites that I shudder to think about now. But at the time, it all seemed strangely reasonable. It certainly seemed better than admitting that I had no power to control my own body. After every experiment, I would wait two weeks and pee and pee and pee on expensive sticks until I could urinate on a target like a well-trained beagle. And, still nothing.

I packed up my beautiful color coded temperature charts, and I went to see my gynecologist. I wanted to show her my perfect 28-day cycles that proved that I was ovulating. I planned to tell her that I was pretty sure that nothing was really wrong, but that maybe she should check to be sure. But when the black woman who had been my doctor for five years walked in, my truth spilled out: “Something is wrong. I can’t get pregnant.”

She laughed, “Calm down. Black women don’t have to worry about that. You’re not infertile. Just impatient.”

Relief passed through me like warm air at first, but I didn’t really understand.

“Look,” she said. “I have seen some cases of black women who could not get pregnant, but they were just busy professionals who didn’t have time for sex.”

“Are you saying that they were trying to get pregnant, but they forgot to have sex?” I said. “Because that’s not our problem.”

“You don’t see any poor black women with this problem, do you?” she said. “That’s because they are having sex instead of trying to take over the world. Just relax and enjoy your husband.”
Her diagnosis: black bougie sex deficit disorder.

According to Resolve, The National Infertility Association, black women are actually 1.5 times more likely to experience infertility than their white counter parts. While the reasons for this are many, lack of awareness is a huge part of the problem. A University of Michigan study of black women from a wide spectrum of socioeconomic backgrounds found that infertile black women were also much more likely to suffer in silence and isolation.

I fired my gynecologist and ran to a reproductive specialist. It took five IVF’s, four infertility treatment centers, and a host of shots in the ass, for me to give birth to a gorgeous daughter. I have not forgotten the dark days of infertility: the bloody egg retrievals, the deep ache of waiting to find out if it worked, the wavering voice on the phone that told me it did not, and the howling grief of losing someone that never existed.

Recently, a 39-year-old friend, also a black woman, mentioned to me she wanted children, but wasn’t trying. I asked her if she had thought about her fertility. She promptly explained that her grandmother had 10 children; that she was the result of an accidental pregnancy; that one woman in her family gave birth at the age of 45. I said, all of those things are true for me too, except my grandmother had 12 children. When it came to my own fertility, none of it made a difference. It’s time to start talking about black infertility.

Peter MacKay’s Misuse of the Rule of Law

Former Justice Minister Peter Mackay wrote a special post for the National Post titled, “Respect the rule of law.” The rule of law means that no one is above the law–yes, even politicians or prime ministers.

It’s true: Canada’s highest court struck down criminal laws enacted by a parliament, though arguably, neither democratically elected nor accountable. While MacKay’s party may have enacted laws and engaged in law reform, these law reforms were not meant to “re-balance” our justice system. And if MacKay wants to talk about the “groundbreaking [sic] new Victims Bill of Rights” or the “youth and child advocacy centres”, the Supreme Court touched neither the Victim Bill of Rights nor these centres.

Over the last decade, the only institution that seemed at odds with the Supreme Court was (oddly) the Conservative Party of Canada. Also, nobody enforces the rule of law; it exists independently of all laws–everyone benefits when we actually use this concept correctly. And, ultimately, the only demand for greater accountability seemed to remedy itself once this same party failed to capture another majority during the last election. I would say that is demonstration of the public demand for greater accountability in its clearest form.

While MacKay quotes part of the dissent in the decision to strike down unconstitutional laws in his special post, he quotes the dissent out of context (and perhaps the dissent quotes these decisions out of context).

The dissenting judges cite Nasogaluak when talking about mandatory minimums as a “forceful expression of governmental policy in the area of criminal law” (in R v Lloyd at para 60). That is the particular citation MacKay also quotes.

In that citation in R v Lloyd, the dissenting Supreme Court Justices refer to a specific and unique framework and when applied, includes some very serious considerations. For instance, as held in R v Nasogaluak, courts must consider any instance of police violence in reducing a sentence for a mandatory minimum (in Nasogaluak at para 53). In that same decision, Canada’s highest court also held that a sentence can be reduced because of state misconduct even when there is no Charter breach (in Nasogaluak at para 53).

And when Mackay quotes the following, “Parliament is owed substantial defence in crafting mandatory minimum sentences”, he must have surely noticed that the dissent was referring to a decision which prohibited a man from driving for three months–in an effort to protect the vulnerable people who drive our dangerous highways and roads every single day (See R v Goltz, [1991] 3 SCR 485). That same court in the Goltz decision held when a bad driver scores more points, it’s not good and not having bad drivers on the road is good. I mean, don’t we want to protect the poor innocent children who are at-risk of bad drivers?

Also, when MacKay decides to highlight that only in “rare and unique circumstances” a mandatory minimum will violate the Charter. Yes, it is true that the dissenting judges state something similar. However, they are referring to a decision which states, “It will only be on rare and unique occasions that a court will find a sentence so grossly disproportionate that it violates the provisions of s. 12 of the Charter” (Steele v Mountain Institution, [1990] 2 SCR 1385, at p 1417f). This test, however, was for reviewing sentences in general. Also, the Steele decision involved a dangerous offender designation. Something quite different than the factual circumstances in R v Lloyd.

Strangely, however, MacKay also quotes Supreme Court Justice Moldaver, which looks like a quote from a Supreme Court decision but it’s not. Based on the absence of a 2011 archives for Judicial appointments, I am assuming from media articles (like this one here) that this quote comes from such committees.

Additionally, MacKay’s reference to activist celebrations losing sight of “basic facts” does not refer to any facts; rather, he draws an illogical conclusion. Specifically, he states, “Recidivism rates in some areas of our justice system are on the rise and public confidence in our system is waning and turning victims in particular away from reporting.” I would suggest that recidivism is on the rise because the lack of social supports in communities to help rehabilitate prisoners–an objective of the Criminal Code. And, the reason victims don’t report is largely because victims don’t trust the current system to provide justice. Despite his insistence on focusing on the facts, MacKay then makes reference to the Truth in Sentencing reforms in 2009. These reforms could definitely be linked to those increasing recidivism rates MacKay refers to in his previous paragraph.

Still, while calling for protection of the vulnerable is a laudable goal, to say that the court is encroaching over Parliament’s power to enact legislation is a misuse of the rule of law. A democratically elected and accountable Parliament should not enact laws that violate our Charter rights and civil liberties and by appealing to emotion (aka protecting the vulnerable), it is nothing more than a weak, illogical argument (not based on any law).

#TalkToMe: My Son Interviews His Stepmom and Me About Adventures in Co-Parenting

The #TalktoMe series from The Huffington Post encourages meaningful conversations between parents and children. We gave #TalktoMe the Adventures in Co-parenting treatment and had Jackson interview both of us — his mom, Katie, and stepmom, Julie — and ask us some hard-hitting questions about co-parenting, role models, and our favorite memories.

With kids, we often find that the depth of the day’s conversation tends to revolve around the three following questions and their usual, predictable answers:

1. How was your day? (A: Good.)

2. What did you do? (A: Went to school.)

3. What do you want for dinner? (A: Usually the the polar opposite of whatever I have planned to make.)

It was a breath of fresh and much more interesting air to have our shared son/stepson Jackson interview us and ask the questions he has always wondered about.

We stand behind the #TalkToMe mission to encourage conversations across generations, and thank you for taking the time to watch our discussion with the most important member of the Adventures in Co-Parenting family. Learn more at www.adventuresincoparenting.com.

4 Things That Comedy Improv Taught Me About Being a Wellness Entrepreneur

For the past four months, I have been spending my Tuesday evenings making a total fool of myself in comedy Improv classes. I enrolled at Just the Funny in Miami to add some ‘funny’ to my life and take a break from working so much. See, I launched a new business last year — an online course and community for health & wellness professionals – and I was spending 12+ hours a day at the computer for many, many months.

When I enrolled in the Improv classes, I expected to laugh a lot, make some friends, maybe even build more on-stage confidence, but I didn’t expect to have ‘a-ha’ insights about my business.

Here’s what Improv comedy classes taught me about being an entrepreneur:

1. You can’t do anything wrong

There are no mistakes in Improv comedy. Every word, phrase or gesture is an opportunity to create something fun and unexpected. Since there is no script, there is no plot or dialogue to follow. You make it up as you go along. The same is true for being an entrepreneur. I can do whatever I want in my business. There is no script, no one-way plan that I have to follow. Sometimes my business or marketing strategies generate a lot of excitement, and sometimes they fall flat – just like on the Improv stage. But just because I don’t get engagement on a particular thing, doesn’t mean that I did something “wrong,” it just means that I need to do something differently until people start smiling again. Which leads me to my next insight…

2. Fail fast, then Keep Going

When you find yourself in a situation that isn’t amusing, which happens a lot in both Improv and business, you need to find your way out fast and keep going. There is nothing more paralyzing to improvising then dwelling in some mental drama about what just happened. If I get stuck in over-thinking, regretting or being embarrassed, I fall apart. Improv classes taught me that there is no shame in telling a joke that doesn’t get a laugh – or launching a product that doesn’t sell – as long as you learn from it. What separates a good improviser from a not-so-good one is her resiliency and her ability to keep going no matter what happens. The faster you fail, and find a new approach, the quicker you can figure out what makes people happy.

3. Commit to it

My Improv teacher hollers from the back of the room, “Commit to it!” It hits me like an electric shock. I stand up taller, speak my words stronger, pay attention closer – and the audience is mesmerized. How true this is for my business, too! If I make a choice and put in half-assed effort, my audience is bored; they don’t care; they aren’t engaged. If I bring my full-energy and enthusiasm to something, they can feel it; it’s contagious; they want more. We don’t have the option in Improv or in business to be lazy. If we don’t commit fully because we are scared or distracted with other things, our performance will stink. We need to show up consistently and commit fully if we want our audience to do the same.

4. Trust Your Partner

On the Improv stage, you only have 2 things that you can rely on – your imagination and your partner. We spend a lot of class time doing weird exercises like feeling each other’s faces and telling each other embarrassing moments so that we can build unconditional trust. This taught me how to lean into my partner instead of trying to be out there on my own. Ironically, this is exactly what I need to do in my business. One of the biggest lessons that I’ve learned as an entrepreneur is how much I need other people to be successful. I can’t do it all by myself. In both Improv and business, the answers to your questions and your next steps are not written in some playbook somewhere, they are in your partner’s eyes.

If you are working in wellness and you need a community to laugh and learn from, join the Women in Wellness Club. We know how to get things done, and have FUN in the process.

»Blüthenstaub«

»Blüthenstaub«


»Blüthenstaub«, the title of the famous collection of fragments by Novalis, stands here for the entire oeuvre of the Romantic German poet Friedrich von Hardenberg (1772-1801). The volume documents the second congress of the International Novalis Society, which was devoted to the reception and impact of Novalis’ work not only on literary posterity but also on the other arts. The main focus is on the reception accorded to Novalis in German Romanticism, in other countries (Britain, USA, Italy, Poland, Russia), and in modern literature, supplemented by studies of musical settings of his work and his reception in Catholicism, anthroposophic thinking, etc. The 200-year history of his impact, traced here in its full implications for the first time, shows that to an impressive and hitherto unknown extent, Novalis’ works have been the object of a wide range of productive acquisition and critical engagement both within German-speaking countries and abroad. The >literary seeds< have fallen on fertile ground indeed.

Bernie Sanders: ‘We All Knew’ What Hillary Clinton Meant By ‘Super-Predators’

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) criticized former President Bill Clinton for recently defending his wife Hillary Clinton’s use of the term “super-predators” while discussing a controversial 1994 crime bill.

“I think we all knew back then what that language meant,” Sanders told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday. “That was referring to young blacks. And I don’t think in this country, elected officials or leaders should be using that type of terminology.” 

While Hillary Clinton, who is now Sanders’ rival for the Democratic nomination, has already apologized for using the term, Sanders said her husband also owes the country an apology.

The dispute started when former President Clinton got into an exchange with Black Lives Matter protesters who brought up the 1994 legislation during his recent speech in Philadelphia. The bill is still hotly debated, since crime rates had already begun to drop before it was passed. Some policymakers who supported the bill now say they have come to regret it, and even the former president has said some of the effects of the bill he signed “cannot be justified.”

Both Sanders and Hillary Clinton, who was then serving as first lady, supported the crime bill at the time. Stephanopoulos, a former official in the Clinton White House, asked Sanders if he had any “second thoughts” about doing so.

“Well, that bill was one of these bills that had good things in it and it had bad things in it,” Sanders replied. “If I had voted against that bill, you would be asking me, ‘Bernie, why did you vote against the ban on assault weapons?'”

“The Violence Against Women Act … you would say, ‘Bernie don’t you — aren’t you concerned about domestic violence?'” he continued. “But if you check the record, I was on the floor talking about many of the negative aspects of that, including the death penalty, which I strongly oppose.”

The bottom line, Sanders said, “is that we need major criminal justice reform in a very broken system. As Americans, we should not accept the fact that we have more people in jail. We need reforms of local police departments all over this country. And I intend, if elected president, to work very aggressively about that.”

7 Signs You Are an Authentic Leader

You have most likely heard the word authentic used in conjunction with leadership. Is authentic leadership just a buzz phrase, or is it something you should actually care about as you continue to develop yourself as a leader? It is definitely something you should care about, and here’s why: Authentic leadership is genuine leadership.

Business growth is more likely to come about with authentic leadership because it is transparent and promotes a growth mindset instead of a fixed mindset, while authenticity instills a work culture of personal growth, accountability, and innovation.

Here are seven characteristics that all authentic leaders share:

1. You know who you are and what you stand for

This is the most important authentic leadership trait because you cannot possess the other six characteristics if you do not first know who you are and what you are all about. You, in turn, are not afraid to be yourself, show yourself, and let your values be known to others.

2. You transparently interact with others

People know where they stand with you because you are open and honest in your interactions. You don’t say and do things just to please others or maintain the status quo just to avoid rocking the boat.

3. You follow your gut
Since you know who you are and what you stand for, you are in tune with your gut. You listen to what your gut tells you and you do it. But at the same time, you check your gut by listening and absorbing the feedback and opinions of others before you make important decisions.

4. You adhere to a code of ethics
Authenticity denotes that you are inherently ethical in your business and personal dealings. Some professions, such as law and medicine, have their own codes of ethics that you as a professional have to follow. If your profession does not have an established code of ethics, you should adopt your own and exercise it in everything you do.

5.Your life’s work is bigger than you
While your life’s purpose and work are driven by your own personal interests and passion, you are driven by something bigger than you, whether you want to make your employees’ lives better, to create something to benefit your immediate
community, or your product is truly designed to make the world a better place.

6. Humility

You have the humility to admit when you are wrong or have made a mistake. You can truly ask for forgiveness when it’s necessary and take steps to make it right again. You don’t overuse the word sorry, but instead reserve an apology for the most appropriate circumstances.

7. You embody the 3 C’s: Compassion, Curiosity, and Courage
The 3 C’s are: Compassion, Curiosity, and Courage. Since you possess the six other characteristics mentioned above, you embody the 3 C’s.

Compassion: You are not only compassionate to others, you also engage in self-compassion. This is an especially important practice when you are faced with your shortcomings as a leader. You are kind to yourself in these moments.

Curiosity: You engage with yourself and those you lead from a place of curiosity. When you disagree with a colleague, you are curious about his or her point of view, instead of judgmental. You are curious as a means to understand, not judge.

Courage: Self-compassion and curiosity are what allow you to be a courageous leader. When you exhibit your courage and fail, self-compassion is what picks you up and allows you to be courageous again.

Authentic leaders may not exhibit all of these characteristics at the same time because authentic leadership involves developing more tolerance for vulnerability, which is difficult. As Dr. Brené Brown says, “Vulnerability is the birthplace of courage.” Authentic leadership is courageous leadership because you have to make yourself vulnerable by showing others who you truly are, which also opens you up for criticism.

Authentic leadership and transparent work culture are one and the same: You cannot have one without the other. A leader does not suddenly become authentic, just as a work culture doesn’t one day become transparent. Authentic leadership is a constant journey and commitment, both to your own growth and to the growth of something bigger than yourself.
