Mother Livid That Daughter’s Teacher Asked If She’s ‘Illegal’

A Virginia high school English teacher is in hot water after writing a comment on a Latina student’s essay that asked about her immigration status.

Kelly Valera told WUSA-TV that one day after the election, her daughter’s sophomore English teacher at Centreville High School asked students to write their feelings about the results.

Valera’s daughter wrote that she was disgusted that Donald Trump was elected because he “judges people by their race and gender.”

She added: “I am thankful for the life I have and my family (which Trump is trying to deport because we are Hispanic, but whatever).”

When the teacher returned the paper, the girl noticed a comment next to the line about deportation:

“If I may ask, Are you legal or illegal? It depends on that factor for deportation. I hope you get to stay!”

Immigrants living in the United States without documentation are more appropriately referred to as “undocumented.” As journalist Maria Hinojosa explained on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” in October, human beings cannot be “illegal.” Rather, they are “living without papers or without documents in this country.”

At first, Valera’s daughter thought her teacher’s “illegal” question was a joke and posted a picture of the essay to Snapchat. Parents of other students saw it and complained to the school, according to Fusion.net.

Valera, who asked that her daughter not be named in media reports, then requested a meeting with Centreville High administrators. They agreed the teacher’s comment was out of bounds.

Valera’s daughter was transferred to another English class. Her mother said the teacher, whose name wasn’t released by school officials, should be suspended.

“Now [my daughter] is the one feeling like she did something wrong because she was pulled out of her class with all her friends,” Valera told WUSA-TV. “These kids are scared, and she’s scared because of the way the teacher made her feel.”

Fairfax County Public Schools released a statement confirming that the district considers the teacher’s comment “inappropriate.” The district said its policy is “to provide equitable treatment and opportunities for all.”

School officials aren’t legally permitted to request a student’s proof of citizenship and don’t enforce immigration laws.

School administrators declined to discuss possible disciplinary action against the teacher, according to The Associated Press.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why You Shouldn’t Focus on Finding a Passion in Life

How do you know if you’ve discovered your passion? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Professor of Physics at UC Berkeley, author of Now, The Physics of Time, on Quora.

How do you know if you’ve discovered your passion? You talk as if there is one passion in your life, one that you have to uncover to lead to fulfillment. I think that approach is fundamentally flawed. I believe that the great life is full of many passions.

You use the word “discover.” Right! Keep on learning. Don’t expect to settle down when you find one passion; keep looking for more. Passion after passion after passion.

As you get older, you will become exposed to many new things, things you never realized existed. Even when you are 50 years old, you have touched only a tiny fraction of the world. Don’t focus too early on one.

I’ve said this before, but it is an example worth repeating: My daughter Elizabeth majored in math. When she was filling out the forms for graduation, she discovered that she had inadvertently fulfilled all the requirements for a major in literature; that wasn’t her intention, she had just been exploring. She took a job in Europe working for the OECD, something that was neither math or literature. Later she became involved in a start-up company in the UK, and finally, she returned to the US where we set up the non-profit Berkeley Earth to study environmental problems. Was she following her passion? No. How could such a career have been conceived of by a youngster? She was exploring. She loves her work.

Exploring is an adventure. It is full of uncertainty. It is much more challenging to explore than it is to follow your passion; there is much more uncertainty. If you feel that you must avoid all anxiety, then it is a very uncomfortable way to go. You live with doubt. It is not easy; in fact, it is full of wrong directions, and when you find yourself on a path that is not going where you want, you have to be ready to get off. (As my wife did when she quit IBM to go back to school to study architecture.) But exploration is the only good way to learn enough about the world that you can discover many passions that you never knew you had.

How to Set Limits and Stick to Them

Do you use your research’s results in your day-to-day actions? Did it change something significant in your life? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Dan Ariely, Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics at Duke University, on Quora.

I try to use research routinely in my daily life, there are many examples, but I will give you just one of them. One of the things we know about dieting is that it is very hard because it’s always about one more forkful or one more spoonful. It’s very hard to count calories and know how much we’ve eaten so we often just eat too much. We also know that when we have rules it is easier to know where we are, to remember to count and to hold ourselves accountable. Think about something like Alcoholics Anonymous, they have a very strict rule that says no drinking whatsoever. Why do we have this rule instead of half a glass a day? It’s because we would stretch the rule, find very big glasses or say, two today but nothing next week and we would come up with all kinds of mental gymnastics to do something that is good for us in the short term that’s not good for us in the long term so having strict rules is very important.

Another thing we know is that having someone that we can be accountable to that is not ourselves is important. If you take all of those together what did I do?

About three years ago I signed a contract with my cousin and the contract was very specific, we defined rules for eating and rules for exercise. The rules for eating were that we could not have dessert during the week, only on the weekend. The rules for exercising included that we had to exercise three times during the week either vigorously for thirty minutes or not as vigorously for 1 hour and that we would hold each other accountable and that we would punish each other if we broke the rules. If you look at the photos and TED Talks of me online you can see that there has been some improvement since signing this contract. By the way, I did not manage to succeed all weeks and sometimes she did punish me, through this punishment I learned about the seven minute exercise and another time that I learned that drinking a green vegetable drink every day is not something that makes me very happy. Regardless, having clear rules about eating and exercise and having someone hold me accountable has been very successful.

Even today, being in a different city and with some jet lag, I didn’t really want to work out but knowing that if I didn’t I wouldn’t get myself to my three times a week I had agreed to I got myself out of bed and exercises and now I’m very happy I did.

Is Your Past Controlling Your Life?

Most of us have one of two ways of dealing with the past. Some of us try to bury it away. Our attitude is whatever happened happened; we can’t change it, so we should just let it go. Others of us seem to get stuck in our history. We’re deeply triggered by memories or become overwhelmed by old feelings. We struggle to let the past go. Research now shows us that neither of these attitudes is particularly adaptive or beneficial to our personal development. Although, these approaches to the past may seem entirely contradictory, they actually lead to the same ultimate outcome. If we avoid facing the past, we fail to recognize the many, often limiting, ways it’s influencing our present. On the other hand, if we over-identify with and ruminate on our childhood experiences, we still find ourselves being ruled by these events. In both cases, we are failing to differentiate and live our lives on our own terms.

Attachment research shows that in order to free ourselves from the past, form healthier relationships, and show up today as the people we want to be, we have to make sense and feel the full pain of our story. When we fail to face unresolved pain from our childhood, we have many, often unconscious, ways of repeating it. These repetitive patterns are not intentional or thought out.

The big and small traumas from our early lives may not consciously feel like they’re dictating our actions. Instead, they come out in ways we don’t realize -for example, in partners we choose, critical attitudes we have toward ourselves, and dynamics we create with our children. Events from our present day lives trigger implicit memories that are often painful and cause us to react rather than act in our own best interest. In this sense, we’re often reliving rather than living our lives, filling past prescriptions rather than forging our own path. So, what are the ways we relive rather than live our lives?

Repeat – One of the ways that we carry on our past in the present is by repeating behaviors and taking on characteristics of important figures in our early lives. Of course, this can be a good thing when we’re adopting ways of being that we value and respect. However, as human beings, we have a tendency to over-identify with the negative traits of our parents or early caretakers. We actually struggle to surpass or see ourselves in a different light from the people who originally cared for us. On an unconscious level, we take on our parents’ traits in an effort to preserve an idealized image of them.

While it may seem counterintuitive, it can actually feel painful or threatening to separate ourselves from our parents by seeing them realistically, including all the ways they were limited and hurt us. Instead, we identify with our parents and take on their qualities. For example, if we had an especially elusive or inward parent, we may find ourselves feeling unavailable to our loved ones or pulling away from relationships when they get too close. If we had a parent who worried excessively and intruded on us, we may find ourselves feeling the same way toward our children and acting in ways that are invasive or overbearing.

React – The opposite side of the same coin comes when we rebel against our parents’ way of being. Once again, it’s healthy and wise to identify traits we don’t like in our early caretakers and to choose to be different in these ways. However, we sometimes are so determined to be different from our family of origin that we overcompensate or distort our natural way of being. For example, if we hated the way our parents did not get along, we may grow up writing off relationships or love in general. We may vow to never get “too serious” with someone or trust anyone on a deep level.

Or, if we felt deprived as kids, we may try to make up for it by overindulging or spoiling our own children. We may project onto our kids that they feel like we did when we were young, and therefore, react to them in ways that are misattuned to their actual wants and needs. In each of these cases, we are still seeing the present through a filter of our past and failing to separate ourselves from our history. We’re not allowing ourselves to fully realize who we really are and what we really want.

Recreate – Another way we fail to step out from the shadows of our past is by recreating environments and dynamics that are similar to those we experienced growing up. This pattern can be tricky to identify. However, we may find ourselves somehow dating or marrying people who treat us in ways that are similar to how we were we were treated as kids. For example, if we grew up with a parent who made us feel small or insignificant, we may find ourselves attracted to partners who are more dismissive. If we had a parent who fawned over us, we may only feel drawn to people who build us up or offer us all of their attention.

Another way we recreate past dynamics is by distorting figures in our lives and projecting traits or reactions onto them that come from our history. For instance, if we had an untrustworthy, flaky, or rejecting person in our early lives, we may consistently feel we’re being deceived as adults. We may assume our partner is pulling away or cheating on us, even when there are no real signs that this is the case.

Lastly, we may even unconsciously provoke people in our lives to react to us in ways that are familiar, even though they were painful. If we were seen as babyish or incompetent as kids, for instance, we may find ourselves acting more helpless or needy with our partner. If we had a parent who lost his or her temper, we may try to provoke that same reaction out of the people we’re closest to in our adult lives by insulting them or trying to push their buttons.

All of these patterns of behavior may lead to unpleasant, even devastating outcomes, but they also help us maintain habitual, old, often negative, ways of feeling about ourselves. Even if we’re hundreds of miles and many years away from our childhood environment, these patterns allow us to remain in these familiar environments on a psychological and emotional level. This lack of differentiation can cause us to feel bonded to our early caretakers in ways that limit us. This illusion of connection may have felt like a lifesaving adaptation when we were little and needed these people for our very survival, but as adults, these patterns are no longer adaptive and hurt us in our ability to become who we ourselves want to be.

To the extent that we don’t recognize and separate from these destructive adaptations, we fail to live our own lives. The good news is that by creating a coherent narrative of what happened to us, we can actually separate from unfavorable overlays of our past and become the people we want to be, a subject I dive into in the Webinar “Free Yourself from the Pain of Your Past.” When we start this journey to better know our own story, we open ourselves up to new possibilities and liberate ourselves to make real change and create a better future.

Learn more about this subject in Dr. Lisa Firestone’s Webinar “Free Yourself from the Pain of Your Past” or in her online course with Dr. Daniel Siegel “Making Sense of Your Life.”

Medicare Isn’t The Only Senior Program Trump Is Likely To Mess With

Some advocates for the elderly have this to say about the fate of senior programs under a Trump presidency: Be afraid, be very afraid.

While most attention has been focused on what’s in store for Medicare ― the popular senior health insurance that the GOP has been eager to dismantle ― that’s not the only senior program that could get rocked to its core. 

There are many programs and services funded through the Older Americans Act (OAA) that are expected to be targeted ― programs that support seniors and help them continue to live independently. Probably the best-known OAA program is Meals on Wheels, which delivers hot meals to shut-ins and is sometimes the only contact an elderly person who lives alone has with another human. There is also subsidized housing for seniors that could see revision. Caregivers may lose support, as little as there was of it. And long-term planning for the nation to meet the needs of its burgeoning older population may get cast aside ― things like developing public transportation alternatives to driving, home modification programs to allow people to age in place, research into Alzheimer’s, etc.

First to go: Traditional Medicare will be shredded when the Affordable Care Act is repealed.

As the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare noted, “destroying traditional Medicare in favor of a privatized CouponCare system is at the top of the Republican agenda.” Paul Ryan has long had the program in his sights and while President-Elect Donald Trump has sent mixed messages about what he specifically plans to do, his standard blanket answer of “it will be better” hasn’t assuaged many fears.

Nor should seniors expect much in the way of intervention or help from Vice President-Elect Mike Pence. During his decade in Congress, Pence consistently voted to cut benefits to Social Security and Medicare. In fact, according to the NCPSSA, “Few members of Congress have an anti-seniors voting record as consistently strong as Mike Pence.” The group scored Pence at 0 percent on issues important to seniors during the 2011-2012 Congress because he voted for multiple pieces of legislation that would cut benefits and programs that protect seniors’ health and financial security.  

While it is impossible to know now which program budgets will be cut – or by how much – services funded through the OAA such as Meals on Wheels, adult day care, and caregiver support are all expected to be targeted, according to Howard Gleckman, author of the book “Caring for Our Parents” who speaks on aging issues. The OAA has been under heavy-duty budget pressure for a decade. Even under the Obama administration, funding for most of its programs remained flat while the number of seniors using them grew. In some communities, there are waiting lists for programs such as Meals on Wheels. Meals on Wheels, which not only addresses the problem that one in six seniors faces hunger issues, also provides a check-in service for seniors who live alone. And in terms of economics and value: The program can feed a senior for a year on what it costs to spend one day in the hospital. Expect funding to be squeezed tighter.

Howard Bedlin, National Council on Aging Vice President of Public Policy and Advocacy, minced no words about cuts to the OAA. In an email to The Huffington Post, he wrote: “Right now there are more people aged 65 and older then there have ever been before, and 10,000 baby boomers join that group every day. The Older Americans Act has already been subjected to cuts over the last seven years – in a time when it should have seen investments to meet the needs of the aging American population. Slashing the budget for these programs now would have immediate and real effects on older adults and their families ― such as fewer older adults receiving meals, a harder time for them getting transportation to doctor’s appointments, less assistance with finding work for seniors having trouble making ends meet, and family caregivers losing their outlet for respite care and training.”

And while hands-on services are where the most immediate pain will be felt, it behooves us to look long-term as well: What will happen to research money now being spent on finding a cure for Alzheimer’s or other diseases that afflict the elderly? What will become of tele-medicine? Easier access to preventative medicine, like flu shots, blood pressure readings, glucose testing?

In the words of former Vice President Hubert Humphrey, “the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.”

The twilight years in America just got a bit darker.

7 Tips To Help You Make Key Decisions

Decisions suck sometimes. Many times when we’re in the midst of a difficult decision, we expect there to be a clear right and wrong choice. But there isn’t. People involved always complicate the matter further. How in the world do we navigate these situations in our day-to-day lives? Here are a few tips.

Do The Opposite Of What’s Comfortable

This will knock out the uncertainty in more than fifty percent of your decisions. It’s especially true for my life, because if I had done what felt comfortable to me, I probably would’ve never went on a cross-country road trip that changed my life.

San Francisco, I’m officially and undoubtedly deeply in love with you. #travelblog #laborday #itiswhatitis

A photo posted by Tom Kuegler (@tomkuegler) on

Too many people in my hometown choose to stay comfortable. I was out at the bar the other night and saw dozens of people that I used to know from high school. They never left home I guess.

It’s hard to forsake comfort for the unknown, but I’d wager that 9 times out of 10, it’s the right way to go.

Listen To Your Friends

Making a decision is quite easy if you’re willing to listen to friends. Sometimes they might sabotage your best interests in the name of their own selfishness, however I’ve found that this doesn’t happen very often. Besides, if you choose the right friends, you won’t have to worry about this happening to you.

And how do you find the right friends? Ben Franklin once said “the same man cannot be both friend and flatterer.” Sure, find friends who are kind and fun, but also find friends who will tell you what you need to hear, even if you don’t want to hear it.

And then, most importantly, listen to them.

Fill Out The Johari Window

We all want to be happy. That’s why some decisions are hard to make, because they carry serious ramifications connected to whether we might be happy in the end. Should you ask your girlfriend to marry you? Should you take that promotion?

The Johari Window can help you with that. It looks like this.

2016-11-08-1478574424-7148187-Johari_Window.PNG

As shown, it’s not enough to know who you are, we also have to know how others view us.

Here’s where it gets tricky though. When others know more about us than we do, it’s especially important to listen to them. However, when we know more about ourselves than our friends, then we have to trust our gut.

It’s difficult to know what our friends think of us, but to clear it up ya’ll can go through this exercise and fill out the Johari window. It’s actually quite fun to do, and when your friends know you better, they’re in a better position to give you advice.

Spend Time With A Mentor

Unlike friends, mentors are there specifically to give you guidance. There’s a level of rapport found in these relationships, sure, but mentors are supposed to judge our situations with level eyes.

I spent time with a mentor in college and he urged me to think about the man I want to be in the future. Honestly that was the first time I seriously thought about my future, and our meetings forced me to stay accountable from week to week.

Stare Into The Past

What better way to inform our current decisions than to look at our past ones? Ponder similar situations you’ve gone through, if you can. Think about those involved, your goals at the time, the success you saw, and the obstacles you overcame. Apply anything you can to your current decision.

Take Emotion Out Of It

Human beings make way too many decisions based on emotion. If some people buy a dog, or get married because of an oncoming rush of emotion, then it’s entirely logical to assume that we make many other decisions based on our emotions as well.

Some things might feel right in the moment, but in reality that feeling only lasts for a little while, and can deceive us into doing things that aren’t good for us in the long run.

Listen To Yourself

We’ve gone through a variety of tips. In your life, doing all of these exercises will illuminate the proper response about 90 percent of the time for you.

But if you’re anything like me, you like doing things your way. Making the right decision is a weird mixture of listening to others while also turning inward to look at your soul. At the end of the day, your friends could know bits and pieces, but nobody knows the whole you better than you. When you’ve gone through all of the previous exercises and still don’t have a clue of what to do, simply do the most exciting option.

If you made the wrong choice, you can always revert back to another route. You don’t need to make the best decision every time, and with every decision you make, you find out more about yourself in the end.

Here’s A Major Health Reason To Get Outside During The Wintertime

As the days get shorter and the chilly weather rolls in, we all want to curl up in a blanket and hibernate until spring rolls around. But making time to get outside in the sun, even when it’s cold out, could have bigger mood benefits than you might realize. 

While the link between sunshine and mental health is nothing new, the most comprehensive study to date has shown that the association may be even stronger than previously realized. 

New research from Brigham Young University, published this month in the Journal of Affective Disorders, finds that sunlight exposure is by far the greatest weather-related factor determining mental health outcomes. In other words: more sunshine, more happiness. 

For the study, a psychologist, a physicist and a statistician from BYU teamed up to compare daily environmental data from the university’s Physics and Astronomy Weather Station with emotional health data archived by day for 16,452 adult therapy patients who were being treated at the BYU Counseling and Psychological Services Center.

If you’re getting enough sun, your emotions should remain relatively stable, the researchers found. But as the amount of sunlight in the day is reduced, levels of emotional distress can shoot up. Other weather variables including temperature, pollution and rain were not found to have an impact on mental health.

“We were surprised that many of the weather and pollution variables we included in the study were not significantly correlated with clients’ scores on the distress measure once we had accounted for suntime,” Dr. Mark Beecher, a professor of psychology at the university and the study’s lead author, told The Huffington Post. “People tend to associate rainy days, pollution, and other meteorological phenomena with sadness or depression, but we did not find that.”  

Exposure to sunlight is a significant factor in seasonal affective disorder. Research has shown that the brain produces more of the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin on sunny days than it does on darker days. What’s more, lack of sunlight is linked with lower vitamin D levels, which in turn has been correlated with depression and low energy. However, the findings aren’t only relevant to those suffering from SAD, as the research was focused on a non-clinical population.

“People who are in therapy or who are struggling with psychological/emotional difficulties may feel worse during seasons when the days are shorter,” Beecher said. “As a result, mental health providers should be prepared to up their game and clients may want to seek additional help during those times.” 

In addition to seeking professional help if you need it, taking a walk in the sun can help. Walking in nature is known to reduce stress, improve cognitive function, boost mood and even put the brain into a meditative state

Napoleon’s Chicken Marengo

Napoleon’s Chicken Marengo


This remarkable work tells the story of Chicken Marengo, and cuts through the tangle of myths that has sprung up around it. Supposedly created on the evening of Napoleon’s victory at Marengo, the dish rapidly conquered Paris, and became a renowned symbol of French haute cuisine. The author sets the dish in its context explaining the nail-biting drama of Napoleon’s Marengo campaign and the remarkable frenzy of rejoicing unleashed in Paris by the news of his victory. The author argues that the dish is part of a wider myth that Napoleon spun around the battle itself. Uncomfortably aware of just how close he had come to disaster, he rewrote the official account of Marengo. Determined to exploit the political impact of the victory to the full, he portrayed it as a masterly maneuver, rather than a near-defeat salvaged largely by luck. Napoleon’s Chicken Marengo demonstrates the persistency of popular myth in shaping perceptions of pivotal events. Uffindel sheds startling light on Napoleon’s extraordinary and yet elusive character, and reveals just how effectively he spun a myth around the amount of food he ate in order to project a positive image of himself. A whole cast of other, unforgettable characters enlivens the story of Chicken Marengo, from Napoleon’s bickering generals, to celebrity chefs, colorful adventurers, acclaimed artists, fabulously wealthy eccentrics, and famous writers such as William Makepeace Thackeray.

LET THE NEW CONVERSATION BEGIN

Whatever happens and whoever wins the Presidential election on Tuesday, there is a fundamental challenge that lies ahead. We (Americans) need to wake up next Wednesday morning and make a commitment to begin a dramatically improved national dialogue. Of all the challenges that have been pointed out repeatedly in this presidential campaign there is one, never mentioned but ever present, that undermines our ability to address all others. Put simply, we have lost the ability to dialogue with one another, to listen to one another, to see each other as compatriots with common challenges that we need to face together. I’m not just talking about politicians – I mean all of us. And if we don’t overcome this challenge, then addressing the others becomes a futile endeavor.

I am not the first to point out that the two major party candidates have not been the poster-persons for effective dialogue. In fact, their inability to dialogue (combined with media coverage) has seriously impaired the opportunity for Americans to assess the issues at hand and make an informed decision. Some of that can be explained by the fact that political races are inherently adversarial. Much can also be attributed to the candidates’ personal styles that the majority of American people on all sides have found unappealing at best. But the problem isn’t about any one candidate or party. And no one politician, not even the President, can remedy the collective insensitivity that we have nurtured and which could become the key to our undoing.

When I look at what’s been in the news over the past year, I see example after example of the overwhelmingly complex challenges that we face as a country. And it seems for every complex problem, the politicians, the media, and perhaps many of us propose simple solutions that clearly will not fix the problem:

If healthcare is too expensive, we’ll throw out the Affordable Care Act and replace it with … well, with something.

If ISIS is our greatest threat, we’ll carpet bomb cities where ISIS exists and make immigration off limits to certain religious groups.

If many countries in the Middle East have devolved into chaos, we’ll use force to topple another dictator and see how that works – it’s worked so well up until now.

If the debt is now $ 19 trillion, we will just tax the rich and it won’t affect the rest of us.

If the cost of college tuition has gotten out of control, we’ll make public universities free and eliminate college debt (… while not increasing the national debt of course).

If people want to protect the unborn, we’ll outlaw abortion and defund Planned Parenthood making birth control and women’s health care less accessible.

If there’s another tragic mass shooting we’ll start shouting about our love / hate of guns – and will do so before we’ve spent even a single day mourning together the terrible loss of life.

For every complex challenge we face, let’s bring on the simple solution. And more importantly, let’s dismiss the other guy’s point of view as not only wrong-headed, but un-American. By doing so, we are able to achieve what social psychologist Arie Kruglanski called “cognitive closure.” Closure, according to Daniele Anastation in her New York Times piece The Price of Certainty, is the moment that you make a decision or form a judgment and literally closes your mind to new information. In Anastation’s video, Dr. Kruglanski explains why we often need closure in making small, day-to-day decisions, but also, the negative outcomes that can accompany this haste to closure where simple solutions don’t suffice.

There are important issues where many, perhaps most, Americans do find common ground: promoting racial, religious and ethnic equality, achieving a more equitable distribution of wealth, finding ways to make health care and higher education more affordable, reducing gun violence, and finding solutions for peace in complex global conflicts. While these challenges present the potential for finding common ground and therefore forward movement, when we engage in such issues it seems we quickly devolve into right-wrong, win-lose positions. The loudest voice feels they have “won” the argument in spite of the fact that the problems remain unsolved. Our political system is the place where perhaps this is the most public and evident.

The art of dialogue has been lost, and we need to rebuild this capacity at all levels. What characterizes good dialogue?

• Starting with the belief that we are colleagues in a mutual endeavor, not competitors and certainly not enemies, when we begin to flesh out our understanding of a problem. Believing that those with whom we dialogue on such issues are part of our larger shared community.

• Acknowledging that understanding a problem in all its complexity doesn’t simply tolerate divergent thinking, that it requires it. Differences of opinion in tackling complex problems aren’t our enemy; they’re our allies as we seek solutions to our most vexing challenges.

• Knowing that listening – not talking over others as we constantly observe in political debates and on evening “news shows” – is the key to building the understanding, relationships, and communities that can address important societal ills.

Building the skills for effective dialogue is building the skills for effective families, neighborhoods, schools, workplaces and communities. Only when we build this crucial capacity to dialogue can we begin to address our complex societal problems together and begin to rebuild the promise of America.

Put Down Your Phone, Close Your Laptop and Be in the Now: Here’s How

How does one focus on being in the “present”? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Jonathan Fields, Author of How to Live a Good Life, Founder of Good Life Project, on Quora.

Being present (aware and intentional) is the ultimate “good life meta-skill!”

What do I mean by that? Most of fill each day trapped in the past or spinning the future. This is pure suffering. Once you’ve learned from your past, responded to what’s happened, and integrated what you’ve discovered, there is no purpose in continuing to dwell there.

Similarly, while anticipating joyful things can add to your present-moment joy, that not what most of us do. We end up fretting about bad outcomes that may or may not happen, regardless of whether we have any control over them.

And, along the way, we destroy the space and opportunity to be here now, to enjoy the moment, to feel engaged, lit-up, sparked by what we’re doing, and deeply connected to those we’re with.

So, what do we do about it? Two thoughts:

  1. Daily mindfulness practice – Cultivate a daily sitting mindfulness practice. Over time, this trains you to become both more present and aware, and also more readily notice and then drop those useless storylines. Tara Brach has a wonderful weekly podcast that guides you through a 25-minute practice. Check out a local meditation studio or download guided audio to get started. This is also something I talk about in detail in How to Live a Good Life, and include guided audio of different lengths.
  2. Set “Awareness Triggers” – Turn connected technology from an awareness destroyer into a source of presence and mindfulness. Take your mobile device. Set vibration alerts to go off every hour or so throughout the day. When you feel them, pause for a moment, notice where your mind is, bring it back to the present moment, to what you are doing and who you are with. Notice the sounds, sights and sensations. Over time, the process begins to become more automatic and you don’t need to prompts any more.

Most importantly, breathe. It’s a gentle process that takes time. So let go of the need to become instantly present and awareness and ease your way into it.

How to Find Work That is Meaningful

What are some tips for identifying what meaningful work would be for me? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Jonathan Fields, Author of How to Live a Good Life, Founder of Good Life Project, on Quora.

Sparks are types of activities that light you up. They’re the things that you’d often pay to do, even if it was really hard work. And, if you’re fortunate enough to be sparked by the thing you get paid for, you can’t believe it and relish every moment you “get” to work.

In my research, I’ve discovered 5 distinct Sparks:

  1. Curiosity – A Curiosity Spark is when you’re fueled by a fierce desire to answer a burning question or solve a specific problem.
  2. Fascination – A Fascination Spark is when you are intrinsically called to learn about a specific topic or idea, the deeper the learning, the better.
  3. Mastery – A Mastery Spark is when you are pulled to become as good as you can possibly be as something. It often doesn’t matter what it is, you just want to be amazing at it.
  4. Immersion – An Immersion Spark is when do pursue a particular activity or pursuit simply for the feeling you get while doing it. You often become absorbed and lose track of time, similar to a flow-state or what athletes call being in the zone.
  5. Service – A Service Spark is when you are called to be of service to some other being or community of beings. It could be one person, a group, or even an animal or, on a larger scale, nature.

While many of us have overlapping Sparks, I’ve found that the people who often feel like their doing deeply meaningful work are pulled by a “primary” Spark, then bolstered by one or two others.

For example, A scientist might be called to find a genetic mutation that can lead to the creation of a cure for a disease. It’s the burning question that most fuels him, and at the same time, he is inspired by the possibility that what he will discover may be of service to many.

Finding your Sparks is not the only path to meaningful work, but it can be hugely important.

California Closes Loophole That Allowed Brock Turner’s Light Sentence

California is closing the loophole that allowed a judge to sentence former Stanford University swimmer Brock Turner to just six months in jail after being convicted of sexual assault. 

Assembly Bill 2888, which Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed into law Friday, will impose mandatory prison sentences for people convicted of raping or sexually assaulting someone who was unconscious, intoxicated or otherwise incapable of giving consent. Previously, the state only required prison time for rape or sexual assault by force. 

“As a general matter, I am opposed to adding more mandatory minimum sentences,” Brown said in a signing message. “Nevertheless, I am signing AB 2888, because I believe it brings a measure of parity to sentencing for criminal acts that are substantially similar.” 

Turner, then a Stanford freshman, was charged in January 2015 with raping an unconscious woman whose blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit. He was convicted a year later on three felony counts of sexual assault: intent to commit rape of an intoxicated and unconscious person, penetration of an intoxicated person and penetration of an unconscious person. Prosecutors recommended a six-year prison sentence. 

In June, Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky sentenced Turner to just six months in jail and three years probation, arguing that six months was a fair punishment given Turner’s age and lack of prior convictions.

“A prison sentence would have a severe impact on him,” said Persky. “I think he will not be a danger to others.”

Persky also said he took Turner “at his word” when he claimed he was also drunk and “just couldn’t make the best decisions.” 

The sentence sparked national outrage, emphasizing the outsize role race and rape culture play in sexual assault cases. Persky’s leniency was underscored by an emotional letter Turner’s victim read at his sentencing recounting her side of the story and the severe impact the attack had on her life. 

“We should not create a culture that suggests we learn that rape is wrong through trial and error,” read the letter. “The consequences of sexual assault needs to be severe enough that people feel enough fear to exercise good judgment even if they are drunk, severe enough to be preventative.”

California’s new law would prevent judges from handing down similarly lenient sentences by extending automatic denial of probation to individuals who commit any penetrative sexual assault, not just those committed by force.

“Sexually assaulting an unconscious or intoxicated victim is a terrible crime and our laws need to reflect that. Letting felons convicted of such crimes get off with probation discourages other survivors from coming forward and sends the message that raping incapacitated victims is no big deal,” said Assemblymember Bill Dodd (D-Napa), one of the bill’s co-authors, after the legislation passed in the assembly. “This bill is about more than sentencing, it’s about supporting victims and changing the culture on our college campuses to help prevent future crimes.”

“Rape is rape, and rapists like Brock Turner shouldn’t be let off with a slap on the wrist,” said another co-author, Assemblymember Evan Low (D-Campbell). “Judge Persky’s ruling was unjustifiable and morally wrong, however, under current state law it was within his discretion. Current law actually incentivizes rapists to get their victims intoxicated before assaulting them. While we can’t go back and change what happened, we can make sure it never happens again.”  

Turner, who withdrew from Stanford but was not formally expelled by the university, is set to be released from jail Friday after spending just three months in jail ― his sentence was cut in half due to “good behavior.” 

Persky, meanwhile, is fighting off a recall effort backed by more than 1.3 million online petitioners. According to the San Jose-based Mercury News, Persky has formed a campaign committee and is seeking support from other California judges in anticipation of the recall vote, which wouldn’t take place until next fall.

“I believe strongly in judicial independence,” he wrote on his campaign committee’s website. “I took an oath to uphold the Constitution, not to appease politicians or ideologues.” 

Last year, Brown vetoed a bill that would have established mandatory minimum punishments for college sexual assault cases, arguing that establishing such punishments should be up to the schools, not the state.

Einstein Healthcare Network Celebrates 150th Anniversary with Community Outreach

2016-09-30-1475256907-399295-toryjohnson

Einstein Healthcare Network of Philadelphia celebrated its 150th anniversary by throwing a bash featuring Diana Ross singing and Jason Alexander of “Seinfeld” fame as master of ceremonies in January 2016. Einstein began in 1866 as the 22 bed Jewish Hospital, an institution where Jewish doctors could treat their patients and others that needed medical attention. Jewish soldiers returning from the Civil War, former slaves, and immigrants were among its first patients. The Einstein network now employs 8500 employees spread across 3 acute care hospitals and the world renowned Moss Rehab outpatient centers. The president and CEO of Einstein, Barry R. Freedman, announced at the event that the hospital had raised more than $ 150 million to mark this milestone.

The ethos of its founding mission did not allow Einstein to stop with a lavish party. Throughout the 150th anniversary year, the hospital held a series of community events to discuss the health issues that are on everyone’s mind such as Alzheimer’s, concussions, stress, weight gain, and geriatric pregnancies. These issues may keep us up at night, but doctors typically don’t have time to ask about these issues within the allotted 15 minute time frame for modern day appointments.

2016-09-30-1475258701-1091830-reichlin

Dan Harris of ABC News moderated the first event, “Brain Waves, Provoking New Thoughts,” on February, 25, 2016. His New York Times bestselling book, “10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works — A True Story,” is a candid, but humorous account of how he turned to meditation after suffering an on-air panic attack on network television. Harris did not flinch from telling the audience that he formerly used illicit drugs to relieve stress and the symptoms of Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), but he also shared his current happiness with his life, marriage, baby, and job. Harris suggests “starting meditation with 5 minutes a day, but warns it is hard to do especially if you are doing it right.”

Dr. Madeline DiPasquale, who is the supervisor of ambulatory programs at MossRehab’s Drucker Brain Injury Center, probably put a lot of minds at ease with her frank discussion of Alzheimer’s at the same event. 35% of adults over the age of 60 fear getting Alzheimer’s. The clinical neuropsychologist said, “Forgetting why you walked into the kitchen or where you put your car keys is probably not Alzheimer’s, but chances are it is sign you are getting older. Normal aging of the brain starts around 40 although most of us don’t feel the effects until the sixth or seventh decade.”

DiPasquale. gave kale haters good news. She noted “no amount of kale or yoga will slow down the process of aging”. She recommends instead that “people do something physical, cognitive and social every day,” she said, such as walking, reading and getting together with friends.” She endorses playing brain games as a way to keep sharp.

The Einstein Health Network continued their anniversary celebrations with the panel discussion, “Conversations: The Words that Change Lives” on September 8. Dr. Douglas McGee, chief academic officer of the Einstein Health Network, probably has conducted the highest number of difficult conversations of anyone in the room. As a nationally renowned emergency room physician, he is in the unenviable position of telling family that a patient has died. Most of us, fortunately, do not have to deliver such tragic news but his advice still can be applied. His recommendations include: Practice in the mirror before delivering the news, say everyone’s full name, and never make them wait.”

2016-09-30-1475256972-6935910-ladies

His colleague, Dr. Janet Ko, who is the assistant program director of the obstetrics and gynecology residency program, gave no-nonsense advice about geriatric pregnancies. She said, “The clinical term for pregnancies where the mother is over 35 is geriatric pregnancy. I have had 21 year old mothers with problems in delivery and 35 year old women that have sailed through pregnancies. You just never know.”

Tory Johnson, host of “Deals and Steals” on Good Morning America, recounted the conversation that changed her life-her boss at Good Morning America told her that she don’t look as good as she could and wanted to send her to a stylist. Johnson, who was overweight at the time, took this as a threat to her continued employment. . Her #1 New York Times bestseller, “The Shift,” tells how she went about losing 60 pounds in a year and changed her life.

She cautioned that weight loss is a long process and relayed some of her weight loss tips to a rapt audience. Before putting any food in her mouth, Johnson always asks, “Is this priority or a preference?” She advises that the scale is your friend and therefore weighs herself every day. While many diets use a cheat day, Johnson recommends against them. She said, “No cheat days–that’s one of my major rules. Every diet says eat healthy six days, then reward yourself by indulging on the seventh. But I realized that having pizza and cake is akin to an alcoholic celebrating a month of sobriety with a few beers. It doesn’t work. So I abolished that concept. Now my treats are inedible–flowers, an iTunes song, a walk in the park.”

Let’s hope that Einstein continues these informative community outreach events, which are the modern equivalent of the doctor’s house call with the wonderful addition of good food and drinks.

U.S. Officials Launch A Zika Travel Advisory For Southeast Asia

U.S. health officials issued a Zika virus travel warning on Thursday, recommending that pregnant women consider postponing nonessential travel to 11 counties in Southeast Asia.

The new travel warning was issued for Brunei, Myanmar (Burma), Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Maldives, Philippines, Thailand, Timor-Leste (East Timor) and Vietnam, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“Travelers have returned from certain areas of Southeast Asia with Zika virus infection,” the agency noted on its website.

On Friday, officials reported two cases of Zika-linked microcephaly in Thailand, the first confirmed cases of the birth defect in Southeast Asia. According to the Associated Press, Thailand has 349 confirmed cases of Zika virus, 33 of them in pregnant women. 

The difference between Southeast Asia’s “endemic” and Latin America and the Caribbean’s “epidemic”:

It’s important to note like the map above that there’s a difference between the Zika “epidemic” sweeping South and Central America and the Caribbean ― for which officials issued a travel alert ― and the lower-level “endemic” in Southeast Asia, for which officials issued a travel consideration

According to the CDC, Zika virus has been present in parts of Southeast Asia for years, and a large portion of the local population has likely developed immunity to the virus. Occasional Zika cases may occur, but it’s less likely that there will be a virus outbreak there than in virgin Zika territory. (Of course, travelers without such immunity may always be vulnerable.)

In comparison, Latin America and the Caribbean are experiencing a Zika epidemic. In those countries, the Aedes aegypti mosquito that primarily transmits the virus is present, and because there haven’t been reports of Zika virus in the area in the past, it’s unlikely that any local population has built up immunity. In Brazil, for example, where Zika virus spread rapidly this year, there have been 1,800 confirmed cases of Zika-related microcephaly.

Practically speaking, there’s not a big difference between the travel consideration and the travel warning. Both advise pregnant women or couples who are planning to become pregnant to consult a medical professional before traveling to an area with Zika virus, and to take steps to avoid mosquitos bites if they do decide to travel.

For babies exposed to Zika virus in-utero, the effects can be devastating. Infants born with microcephaly typically have abnormally small heads and can have development disabilities. And even those born with normal-sized heads can have damage from the infection, including brain abnormalities and joint malformation linked to the virus, according to a report published in August in the journal Radiology.

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.”

http://www.acrx.org -As millions of Americans strive to deal with the economic downturn,loss of jobs,foreclosures,high cost of gas,and the rising cost of prescription drug cost.

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.”

"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.

2016-05-30-1464619521-4995374-Grandpamemorialdaymylifesamovie.comcopy.jpg

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.
