Plant Genetic Engineering

Plant Genetic Engineering


Plant biotechnology offers important opportunities for agriculture, horticul- ture, and the food industry by generating new transgenic crop varieties with altered properties. This is likely to change farming practices, improve the quality of fresh and processed plant products, and reduce the impact of food production on the environment. The purpose of this series is to review the basic science that underpins plant biotechnology and to show how this knowledge is being used in directed plant breeding. It is intended for those involved in fundamental and applied research on transgenic plants in the academic and commercial sectors. The first volume deals with plant genes, how they work, and their transfer from one organism to another. Authors discuss the production and evaluation of the first generation of transgenic crops resistant to insects, viruses and herbicides, and consider aspects of gene regulation and targeting of their protein products to the correct cellular location. All the contributors are actively engaged in research in plant biotechnology and several are concerned directly with its commercial applications. Their chapters highlight the importance of a fundamental understanding of plant physiology, biochemistry, and cell and molecular biology for the successful genetic engineering of plants. This interdisciplinary approach, which focuses research from traditionally separate areas, is the key to further developments which are considered in subsequent volumes.

Kanye West Is Running For President In 2020

Kanye West, greatest human on earth, announced Sunday that he will be running for president of the United States of America in 2020.

“I have decided in 2020 to run for president,” West said Sunday at the VMAs. The announcement naturally led to huge applause for the future leader of the free world. 

The announcement was made during West’s acceptance of the Video Vanguard Award. As it is only 2015, there will still have to be an interim president elected in the meantime in 2016. 

West also discussed additional things during the speech, such as his grocery shopping habits, the children, art and a bunch of other stuff. But none of that matters now. 

Update — 11:18 p.m.: Khloe is down.

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

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

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

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

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

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

12 Qualities of an Enlightened Person

“If you think you are enlightened, go home for Thanksgiving.” — Ram Dass

We sometimes say that some people are enlightened, but do we really know what that means? We might say that because they are kind, loving, and insightful. While these may indeed be qualities of an enlightened person, it’s hard to be sure unless we ourselves are enlightened.

I’ve been on a spiritual path most of my life, and in my experience I’ve seen how people are transformed through spiritual practices. Here is a list of qualities that most of them attain. This is not a comprehensive list, but I think it contains some of their most prominent qualities.

Keep in mind that there are varying degrees of enlightenment. That is, everyone is at a different point in his spiritual development, and some may be more enlightened than others. Also, these qualities can be possessed by both men and women. Enlightenment is not exclusive to either sex.

1. Happiness

The enlightened person is happy and joyful. He has a cheerful disposition most of the time, and is willing to share that joy with others. He is always optimistic that all challenges have a resolution. Even though the resolution may not be the most desirable, he is confident that he is capable of being at peace with it.

2. Peaceful and Serene

The enlightened person is peaceful and serene, because he is free of fear and other unwholesome emotions. He can see that the human condition reaches beyond this physical existence, so he no longer has a fear of the unknown. He is free of worry because he understands that freedom from suffering comes from within, and not from material possessions.

3. Loving, Kind, and Compassionate

The enlightened person is loving, kind, and compassionate for two main reasons: 1) he genuinely cares about other people, regardless of whether they care about him, and 2) he knows that other people provide him with the spiritual nourishment he needs to continue growing. Therefore, he remains spiritually open to everyone.

4. Not Self-Centered

The enlightened person is not self-centered, because he has lost the sense of a separate self. He can see the interconnected nature of our existence. To him, this is not just a concept, but a reality. He realizes that all physical manifestations (humans, animals, plants, etc.) depend on each other for their survival.

5. Emotionally Stable

The enlightened person is emotionally stable because he no longer has an ego that needs validation for its existence. He is not hurt because there is no ego to hurt. He does not get angry because he is understanding and compassionate toward those who are not as far along the spiritual path.

6. Patient and Understanding

The enlightened person is patient and understanding because he appreciates how our ignorance creates our own suffering. He understands the challenges of achieving enlightenment, so he doesn’t condemn people for their missteps.

7. Humble

The enlightened person is humble. Since he knows his place in the universe, he doesn’t need validation from others. Therefore, he has nothing to prove to anyone, including himself. His humble nature allows him to be kind and gentle, and be open to everyone he encounters.

8. Insightful and Open-Minded

The enlightened person is insightful and open-minded. He is able to see the world with great clarity, without attachment to preconceived ideas about people, places, and things. This enables him to observe the world without jumping to conclusions. Belief and intuition are replaced with clarity of vision and understanding.

9. Inner Strength

The enlightened person has great inner strength. He has learned healthy ways of connecting with the sources of spiritual nourishment — through healthy interactions with people, and within. He no longer has a need for the power struggles that most of us engage in.

10. Leadership

The enlightened person is a leader. Having awakened to the point of understanding the nature of suffering, he realizes his duty to help other people find freedom from suffering. He leads by example, rather than control. People follow him because of who he is and what he stands for. They want to be more like him.

11. Mindful of His Health

The enlightened person is mindful of his health — physical, mental, and emotional. He knows that his mind, body, and spirit must be in harmony in order to maintain his spiritual condition. He has developed an understanding of physical and mental health, and doesn’t blindly depend on others for his health. He is mindful of the nutrients and substances he puts into his body.

12. Committed to His Spiritual Practice

The enlightened person never forgets how he achieved enlightenment. He is also aware that it takes continuous effort to remain that way. It takes a great deal of spiritual nourishment to help others along their path, so he’s aware that he needs to replenish his spiritual strength on a daily basis. Otherwise, he’ll lose his effectiveness as a spiritual messenger.

Overall, the enlightened person is mindful of himself, and the world around him. Furthermore, he is curious and willing to continue learning. He is aware that even though he can see with great clarity, developing an understanding of the true nature of our existence takes time to observe and investigate.

This is not a comprehensive list of the qualities of an enlightened person. But I think these are the most prominent. My purpose for examining these qualities is to give us a compass to guide us in our spiritual journey — a vision of the path that lies ahead.

From this list, it seems clear that enlightened people live rich and fulfilling lives. Those who achieve any measure of enlightenment do so through some form of daily meditation practice, a willingness to let go of old views, and a commitment to helping others find peace. It takes work and dedication, but it is well worth it.

Best wishes on your spiritual journey!

Feeling phone-verwhelmed? 5 tips to create a healthier, happier relationship with your smartphone.

2015-08-31-1441000066-9967021-HuffPo.jpg
Not long ago, I was chatting with a friend who lives in Oregon, USA, and she told me a story that I could completely relate to — because I’ve seen it play out in Hawaii, where I live.

My friend was having brunch at a popular local restaurant — she had waited an hour just to get a table — and while waiting for their food to arrive, she and her boyfriend noticed something troubling.

All around the restaurant — with very few exceptions — people were intensely focused on their phones. Texting. Tweeting. Posting pics of delicious food on Instagram. Scrolling through various feeds while glancing at their dining companions over the top of their screens. Multiple phones at every table. If someone wasn’t actively using their phone, they had it sitting flat on the table or tucked right in their lap — ready to grab!

“It was crazy!” my friend exclaimed. “Everyone waited so long to get inside, and once they sat down, instead of enjoying the food, the ambience, or their friends, they were totally focused on their phones. When did our society become so… phone-obsessed?”

I laughed, nodding my head. I’ve seen the exact same “scene,” too, so many times. Whether it’s at a public restaurant, a coffee shop, waiting in line at the airport or bank, or around the family dinner table, millions and millions of people are — as my friend put it — extremely “phone-obsessed.”

Sadly, this epidemic just seems to be getting worse.

In recent years, more and more parents have set up coaching sessions with me because they’re concerned about their kids’ relationship with technology.

“I can barely remember the last time I saw my teenager without a phone in her hand,” one mom said to me. “She texts so much, her phone is practically a part of her body.”

So many people — parents and kids alike — are feeling burnt out and “phone-verwhelmed.” Many of us yearn for a “simpler time” when smartphones didn’t exist — yet, at the same time, we’re grateful for the solutions and timesaving tools they provide. (GPS to help you navigate an unfamiliar neighborhood, anywhere in the world? Amazing!)

Smartphones definitely aren’t “evil” or “bad,” but people of all ages are struggling to find a “balance” and it’s becoming problematic. What’s the solution?

You’ll be happy to know: you don’t necessarily need to flush your brand new iPhone down the toilet or vow to never, ever tweet again. Things don’t have to be that black or white. But you can take specific steps to create a healthier, more balanced relationship with your phone — and all forms of technology, for that matter.

Here are 5 simple steps that I suggest:

1. Make a plan. If you want to earn a college degree, you don’t just wander through a university waltzing into various lectures and jotting down notes at random. You make a plan. You select specific classes happening at specific times and you attend them. This keeps you on track, moving steadily towards your goal.

You can apply that same logic to your smartphone usage. Choose specific times (say, 8am, 12pm, and 4pm) when you intend to “check in” to read texts, social media updates, and so on, and then do your best to stick to the plan. Try not to just “wing it.” Create phone-routines that help you to create the kind of day (and life) that you want.

2. Savor the sound of silence. If your phone is continually bleeping and pinging every time “something happens,” it’s going to be tough for you to stay focused on whatever you’re trying to do — you’ll be tempted to check in and see what’s up!

This may seem obvious, but turn off those noisy notifications. Better yet, turn the volume on your phone down to zero or power-down your phone completely.

If you’re concerned that you might miss something important — like an emergency phone call from your spouse, parent, or your child’s school — you can create a “call filter” so that certain people’s calls come through even if your phone is on “silent.” That way you can rest easy, knowing that you will never miss something that is truly urgent.

3. Make dinnertime a phone-free zone. For many couples and families, dinnertime is the only time of the day when everyone is gathered together in one place. Make dinner a special, sacred time. No phones at the table.

If people get restless or bored, strike up an interesting conversation by playing a question game (like asking, “What was the best part of your day?” or “What was the toughest part of your day?”) and take turns telling stories. Even if you’re dining alone, set your laptop or phone aside and savor your meal without techie distractions.

4. Enjoy phone-free adventures. A few times a week, try leaving your phone safely at home. Go for a phone-free walk with your dog… a phone-free date with your sweetheart… or a phone-free trip to the grocery story. When was the last time you did that?

See how it feels to move freely through the world without any kind of digital “companion” to keep you company. What kinds of feelings bubble up for you, positive or negative? Take note. No matter what kinds of feelings come up, taking some phone-free time is a valuable experience that can teach you a lot about yourself.

5. Ask yourself, “What am I craving right now?” My colleague Susan Hyatt — a fellow life coach — often poses this question to her clients. It’s a great one! When you feel the urge to check your phone, and you don’t really “need” to, pause for moment. Check in with yourself and see what you are craving.
Do you crave company? Do you want some excitement or entertainment? Inspiration? Connection with a friend? Energy to get through the rest of your day? Are you craving attention or affection? Laughter? Love?

Whatever you crave, see if you can find a non-phone-related way to give it to yourself.

Talk a walk or pop by a friend’s house just to say “hi.” Write a handwritten letter. Go for a jog. Listen to music. Sit and gaze at the sky or the ocean. Read a book. Feed your spirit in some other way.

After satisfying your cravings out in the “real world,” you may discover that whatever is going on in the “phone-world” just isn’t that compelling anymore.

There are so many ways to build a happy, balanced relationship with technology.

These 5 tips are just a few of my personal favorites.

What strategies have you discovered? What works best for you? What’s your favorite part about smartphone technology and what’s your least favorite aspect? Do you think your life would be better, the same, or worse, if smartphones had never been invented?

Talk about these questions with people you love… say, around the dinner table tonight.

Just scoot the phones off the table, first. You’ll all be glad that you did.

Asian Masculinities

Asian Masculinities


This book shows how East Asian masculinities are being formed and transformed as Asia is increasingly globalized. The gender roles performed by Chinese and Japanese men are examined not just as they are lived in Asia, but also in the West. The essays collected here enhance current understandings of East Asian identities and cultures as well as Western conceptions of gender and sexuality. While basic issues such as masculine ideals in China and Japan are examined, the book also addresses issues including homosexuality, women’s perceptions of men, the role of sport and food and Asian men in the Chinese diaspora.

A Special Letter to the President From Members of the Democratic National Committee

MINNEAPOLIS — At our just-completed summer meeting of the Democratic National Committee, we circulated a “Special Letter to the President” wherein we asked our DNC colleagues to sign the letter supporting President Barack Obama’s leadership in negotiating an agreement that would place strict limits on Iran’s nuclear program.

7 years ago this weekend, we nominated Senator Barack Obama for President of the United States. During that 2008 campaign, then-Senator Obama had promised to choose diplomacy and engagement over conflict in pursuing American foreign policy objectives. Now, by working with the P5+1 (the Permanent Members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany), to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran, President Obama has helped to fulfill that pledge. Promise made; promise delivered.

A majority of the DNC delegates joined us in co-signing our letter of support. In just a few hours, the two of us and a handful of allies collected signatures from over 160 DNC members, with endorsements continuing to come in.

We are proud to stand with our president and delighted to that so many others have joined us.

————————————————-

A Special Letter to the President from members of the Democratic National Committee.

We strongly support the courageous leadership you have demonstrated in choosing diplomacy and negotiations over conflict. We believe that the completion of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action negotiated between P5+1 (the Permanent Members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany) and Iran to place strict limits on Iran’s nuclear program is an important victory for diplomacy. We recognize that there are some who in good faith have expressed reservations with elements of the JCPOA but we believe that you and key members of your Administration have effectively and respectfully responded to these concerns. We, therefore, join you in supporting the JCPOA as the best way forward to secure our nation, our allies, and world peace.

Yves Rocher TENDRE JASMIN SECRETS D’ESSENCES – Eau de Parfum – Travel size

Yves Rocher TENDRE JASMIN SECRETS D’ESSENCES – Eau de Parfum – Travel size


Ardour and finesse, gentleness and tenacity, strength and fragility: jasmine adores contradictions. The most unexpected of which is that such a powerful fragrance is born of such tiny flowers. Occasionally shy, occasionally triumphant, jasmine is delicate, smooth or sweet, occasionally also dizzyingly sensual. TENDRE JASMIN SECRETS D’ESSENCES reveals different facets of the flower: fresh top notes, a rounded, velvety heart, sensuality at the base. And if jasmine were a woman? Between grace and invitation, careless of her own seduction, it would be a concentrate of femininity. If jasmine were a woman, she would wear TENDRE JASMIN SECRETS D’ESSENCES. Top notes: Jasmine P�tal Firnat derived from jasmine grandiflorum absolute from India, essential oils of mandarin, orange lemon Heart notes: Jasmine Grandiflorum Absolute from India, orange blossom absolute Base notes: Sambac jasmine absolute from India, mimosa absolute 5 ml Spray / 1.7 fl. oz.

A Special Letter to the President from members of the Democratic National Committee

MINNEAPOLIS. At our just-completed summer meeting of the Democratic National Committee, we circulated a “Special Letter to the President” wherein we asked our DNC colleagues to sign the letter supporting President Barack Obama’s leadership in negotiating an agreement that would place strict limits on Iran’s nuclear program.

7 years ago this weekend, we nominated Senator Barack Obama for President of the United States. During that 2008 campaign, then-Senator Obama had promised to choose diplomacy and engagement over conflict in pursuing American foreign policy objectives. Now, by working with the P5+1 (the Permanent Members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany), to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran, President Obama has helped to fulfill that pledge. Promise made; promise delivered.

A majority of the DNC delegates joined us in co-signing our letter of support. In just a few hours, the two of us and a handful of allies collected signatures from over 160 DNC members, with endorsements continuing to come in.

We are proud to stand with our President and delighted to that so many others have joined us.

————————————————-

A Special Letter to the President from members of the Democratic National Committee.

We strongly support the courageous leadership you have demonstrated in choosing diplomacy and negotiations over conflict. We believe that the completion of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action negotiated between P5+1 (the Permanent Members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany) and Iran to place strict limits on Iran’s nuclear program is an important victory for diplomacy. We recognize that there are some who in good faith have expressed reservations with elements of the JCPOA but we believe that you and key members of your Administration have effectively and respectfully responded to these concerns. We, therefore, join you in supporting the JCPOA as the best way forward to secure our nation, our allies, and world peace.

Rock Me Crazy (Rock Star Rockstar Erotic Romance) (Rock Me #3)

Rock Me Crazy (Rock Star Rockstar Erotic Romance) (Rock Me #3)


Violet has solved one of the stresses in her life, but is still avoiding her mother’s calls, refusing to believe the story she’s been told about Christian’s past. But when an emergency in Athens forces Violet to call her, she can’t stop thinking about her mother’s words. Violet gets the whole story from Ellen Gere and from Christian himself, but will the truth make Violet pull away from Christian, or bring them closer together? This 10,000 word erotic romance is the third instalment in a four-part series detailing the love between Violet and rock star Christian Anderson. Here’s an excerpt: “Hey, all of us are going to go out for dinner tonight, just the band members and girlfriends. Want to join us?” “Sure” I replied. Christian wrapped his arm around me and led me down the hallway, towards the waiting car. We drove to a nice quarter of town, being dropped off in front of an Italian restaurant. “Really? We’re in Hungary and we’re going to an Italian place?” I asked. I wasn’t exactly a seasoned traveller, and I didn’t really know what food Hungarians ate, other than goulash, but I had been expecting to find out. Christian smiled at me ruefully. “Yeah, I know what you mean, but Pete insisted, he said he heard it’s awesome. But I promise to take you out tomorrow, we’ll find the best Hungarian food in Budapest” he added, whispering the last bit into my ear, kissing my lobe slightly before finding my face and planting another perfect soft kiss on my lips, sending fire coursing through me. All of a sudden dinner was the last thing on my mind, as I pulled him to me and kissed him back. Christian’s arms wrapped around my waist and he pressed me gently against the wall of the hallway, his lips finding mine. My arms moved up to his shoulders as pleasure began to race through me, a slow pulse of perfect ecstasy radiating through me from my sex. His hand roamed my body, the every touch of his fingers against my skin sending tingles running through me. I leaned back and

Sunday Roundup

This week brought powerful reminders of what happens when a government fails its citizens. On Wednesday, as the nation continued to mark the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina’s unnecessarily tragic destruction of a uniquely American city, the nation woke to yet another uniquely American tragedy, as two Roanoke-based news staffers — reporter Alison Parker, and cameraman Adam Ward — were gunned down on live television. It was the beginning of a news cycle we know all too well: shock, outrage, calls for sensible guns laws, and then, if past is prologue, nothing. Since the Newtown shootings in 2012, nearly 85,000 Americans have been killed by guns — yet common sense gun legislation proposed at the time by President Obama continues to languish. On Thursday, the president called Katrina “a man-made disaster, a failure of government to look out for its own citizens.” The same could be said of Roanoke.

8 Ways to Deal With Difficult People

Teacher Ram Dass once said: “If you think you are so enlightened, go and spend a week with your parents.”

It’s great advice. Whether it’s your parent, lover, friend or colleague, we all have people who trigger us. Something about them touches our wounds and brings out the worst in us — our pain, irritation, impatience, anger or even hostility.

Sound familiar? If so, here are eight powerful ways you can deal with difficult people who push your buttons.

1. Set your intention.

Our intentions shape our day and our destiny. If you know you will be spending time with someone who triggers you, set an intention in advance of your encounter.

I intend to feel good. I intend to stay calm. I intend to embody love and kindness.

Your intention will help guide your thoughts and actions. You can also bring your intention to mind whenever you feel tempted to slip back into old patterns of reaction and negativity.

2. Practice mindfulness.

Mindfulness is the art of being present in the moment and observing your thoughts and feelings as they arise, rather than getting lost in them and confusing them with who you are.

When you are mindful, you have more control over your reactions to life. When someone triggers an emotional response in your body or a negative thought in your mind, you take a step back and observe what is happening inside of you.

Being the observer gives you the space and opportunity to take a few deep breaths, centre yourself, and consciously choose a new positive response — rather than mindlessly reacting out of habit and instinct.

3. Open your heart.

Negative emotional states usually provoke a noticeable physical response in your body — you may feel a knot in your throat or stomach, your muscles tense, or heat and heaviness around your heart area.

In that moment, you are closing off your heart centre and trapping the negative energy you feel inside of you. When you store this energy inside your being, you will continue to attract — and be triggered by — similar people and events in your future.

The next time you feel triggered and your body begins to tense up, make a conscious decision to take a few deep breaths, relax your shoulders, and imagine your heart opening — no matter how much it feels like closing. As you continue to breathe deeply, allow your feelings to rise and then fall away again, like a wave in the ocean.

4. See the gift.

Difficult people who push our buttons can be one of our greatest gifts in life. By bringing out the worst in us, they make us aware of where we need to grow. By touching our inner wounds, they bring them to the surface where they can be examined and healed.

Often we feel triggered now because of an incident in our past that we never fully healed from or released. Instead, we kept the memory, emotional pain or consequent self-limiting story buried deep within our heart and subconscious.

The poet Rumi once wrote: “Your task is not to see for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

Thank the difficult people in your life, for they are showing you the barriers you may have constructed around your heart in the past to protect yourself that may now be limiting your experience and influencing what you can attract into your life.

Once you dissolve these barriers by forgiving the past and choosing to remain mindful and open-hearted in the present, you open yourself up to greater experiences of love, joy and inner peace.

5. Be wary of unexamined assumptions.

Sometimes we react negatively to people because we have conscious or unconscious beliefs and expectations about who they are and how they should act.

We may also have a hidden agenda to gain something from them to fill a void in ourselves — like love, praise or support. When they don’t provide what we seek in the form we are seeking it, we feel resentful and irritable.

In either case, there is an unexamined assumption running the show: that other people are in some way responsible for your happiness.

The truth is, your happiness is entirely up to you. No one can take it from you (unless you let them) and no one is responsible for making sure you are happy.

We are all responsible for filling ourselves up so that we feel loved and supported from within. And when we do, the people in our life will often naturally change their behaviour to become more loving and supportive towards us, because our outer world is always a reflection of our inner state of being.

Make it a habit to sit alone for five minutes each morning and imagine your heart and body filling up with love and light from above. Carry this feeling with you throughout the day.

We search the world for happiness in romantic partners, jobs, houses and bank balances, and yet we are so quick to throw it away at the slightest provocation. Start valuing your happiness like it is one of your most prized possessions — it is.

6. Practice forgiveness.

Everyone is doing their best from their level of consciousness and awareness.

Often, the people who trigger us are not even fully aware of the effect they are having on us. Even if they are aware, they may not be in a position to change their behaviour yet, simply because they are so deeply trapped in their own mind, patterns and emotional wounds.

Practice forgiveness whenever you are able to. Forgiveness does not mean condoning their behaviour. Forgiveness means seeing past their external behaviour to the light of their inner spirit, their soul, which is made of the same energy and love as your own soul – it’s just been temporarily obscured.

Don’t forget to forgive yourself too — have compassion for yourself and the challenging situation you are in, which is calling upon you to grow and be your best.

7. Be the lighthouse.

People can bring out the worst in each other, or bring out the best in each other.

The same way that a group of people meditating can have a positive ripple effect on the world, your own loving energy, peace and grace can have a positive effect on the difficult people in your life.

Many people are unable to see or change their own destructive patterns and behaviour. However, when you hold a positive space for them, staying calm, loving and present, this can allow them to subtly shift into these feelings too.

Picture yourself as the lighthouse, cultivating your inner light and love for those who need it.

8. Ask your Higher Self for help.

The book A Course In Miracles states: “Fear is a sure sign you are relying on your own strength.”

You are not in this alone. If you doubt your ability to remain calm, present and open-hearted around someone difficult in your life, call upon your Higher Self to step in and guide you through it.

You can establish the connection with a small pause and prayer: Higher Self, I desire to deal with this person in my life with compassion, patience and love. I’m not sure whether I can remain calm, so I step aside and let you lead the way. And so it will be.

Can You Be The Hero?

What does it take to be a hero? On a train, in a crowd, or in the quiet of your office? If you’re ever in a situation of great peril or stress, can you step up and be the hero?

Lots of popular books and films are about apparently ordinary people who are thrust into situations of danger and step up to act courageously. Think of Harry Potter, Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, Tris Prior in Divergent, or the Bruce Willis character in all those old Die Hard movies, An ordinary person is pushed into an extraordinary situation and steps up.

I’ve just published a book called The Oasis Within, which is the prologue volume to a new series of novels where one of the main themes is how we can be prepared for greatness. One philosopher who has read that first book has written me that it’s the first portrayal of a hero that really digs down deep into how a grounding in the right wisdom can equip any of us for more heroic action.

There’s an interesting article about this in the New York Times. Professor David Rand with his colleague Ziv Epstein studied 51 winners of the Carnegie Medal for Heroism and came to a conclusion that surprised them. The overwhelming majority of heroes who act to save another person or to otherwise do what needs to be done in a tense and pressure filled situation, do not deliberate or think it through carefully before doing anything, but instead act instinctively, intuitively, and fast.

There’s an old saying. “He who hesitates is lost.” That seems to apply to many situations of great value and risk. We often think of ethics and morality as all about rational decision making, as if the moral agent must first weigh all the values involved in a situation and then choose which to prioritize and pursue. Wrong. The late Iris Murdoch, philosopher and novelist, wrote a fascinating little book called The Sovereignty of Good. In it, she says that, typically, at the moment of moral decision making, the precise moment we choose this or that, the decision has already long been made by what we’ve been doing, valuing, thinking about, feeling, and paying attention to, in the minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years preceding that moment. Most big decisions, and especially those involving some measure of courage or boldness, aren’t deliberated at all, but simply arise out of who we are, or what we’ve become prior to the point of action. We do this or that because we are already committed to this or that, or because we already are this or that.

Our actions show who we are. They arise from within, and in a way that can be quick and intuitive.

The Americans on that high speed French train recently didn’t hold a short seminar on the costs and benefits of all the possibilities and alternative potential responses available when they noticed the guy with the gun. They saw it and somebody said “Let’s go.” They took action. That’s normally the trajectory of heroism. It sees a need and acts to meet the need. So, when you find yourself deliberating extensively over some choice, weighing the pros and cons, chances are that you’re not getting ready to be a hero. The hero simply sees and does. The lesson for us is then simple. We need to be preparing ourselves carefully to do the right thing instantly when such a situation arises.

Are you paying attention to the right things, day-to-day? Are you valuing the truly best things? Are your feelings guided by real wisdom? Do you have enlightened commitments, or is the culture getting under your skin a little bit, to encourage selfish superficiality, personal aloofness, or short term ease? We become what we habitually do, in the life of the mind, the emotions, and in our actions. Today, you can begin to create the moral hero within who will act fast and instinctively tomorrow. Or you can deepen and reinforce the good tendencies you already have. It’s up to you.

And Again, in Virginia This Time

I don’t have anything particularly wise or insightful to say about the on-air shooting deaths Wednesday of two Virginia broadcasters, nor do I know where this is going. But I know I couldn’t let it pass without mention or at least paying homage to reporter Allison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward by name. So, bear with me, I’m just going to type.

The fact that the shooting was live on-air certainly makes it more ghastly. But it doesn’t make them any more dead. They’d have been just as dead if the murderer had done it any other time. Guns work that way.

And yes, clearly, I knew when I started typing that guns would have to get mentioned. And no, it’s not too early to bring it up. That’s what was used to kill them. You can’t not mention it. And anyone who thinks it shouldn’t be mentioned yet usually means that they don’t want it mentioned ever. And when they say, “It isn’t the time to discuss gun control,” the only proper response is the one that’s always the proper response — “You’re right, the time to discuss gun control would have been before this happened.”

I’m not sure how many dead people it takes to be counted as a “mass shooting.” It certainly wasn’t nearly as many as the church shooting in Charleston, or Columbine, or at Sandy Hook Elementary School, or Virginia Tech, or New Orleans, or pick your mass-shooting, but two people can qualify as a mass. I was going to include the attack at the movie theater in Nashville, but then I remembered that the man there used a hatchet and pepper spray, not a gun. So it doesn’t count. It also doesn’t count because none of the intended victims were, in fact, killed.

It doesn’t really matter, of course. Because it does qualify as yet another ghastly murder. Whether one person or a mass. Whether high-profile and attention-getting, or alone in a back alley or private home. And at some point, you just hope that the humanity of those who can act to address it will feel pummeled enough to do so. And yes, the corporate-owned NRA terrorist group, determined to frighten those susceptible to being frightened will come up with all manner of cold, heartless, unsupportable flim-flam explanations why their corporate interests should be protected and pour millions of their corporate dollars into supporting their cries of terror and fear-mongering, under the faux-banner of the 2nd Amendment which we ALL know and accept does all for limitations on weaponry. But enough already. Again. Human beings are dying in ghastly, mass numbers unnecessarily — again and again — and our freedom is not being protected one iota by the corporate efforts of the NRA. The only thing they’re protecting is bloody corporate profits.

Oh, and one last thing. If it turns out that indeed the killer was fired from his job and he was crazy angry about it — it seems like they made the right decision. It’s just heart-sickening that it had the end result that it did.

So, I guess that’s where my thoughts about this led.

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

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

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs.

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

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

10 Reasons To Be Glad You’re A Highly Sensitive Person

From tears to cheers, if you’re a highly sensitive person you have a lot of feelings you express on a regular basis. And in a culture in which emotions are sometimes seen as “weak,” expressing them can often feel like a liability rather than an asset.

The personality trait of being a highly sensitive person, which affects both men and women, can play a large role in daily interactions — and that’s actually really good news. If you’re feeling a little low about your emotional nature, here are a few reasons to instead celebrate your sensitivity.

1. You’re empathetic.

Highly sensitive people have an extremely empathetic nature, according to Elaine Aron, a lead researcher on the personality type. This can contribute to a certain level of emotional reactivity, including concern for a friend or someone in need. Sounds like the kind of person anyone would want in their corner.

2. You generally aren’t involved in conflict.

Confrontational situations tend to create anxiety for you because you fear you’re going to be criticized for your reactions or for speaking up. “Sensitive people get torn between speaking up for what they feel is right or sitting back because they don’t want a violent type of reaction [from others],” Aron previously told HuffPost. Seriously, who likes arguing with people, anyway?

3. You’re perceptive.

No one picks up on a change or the mood of a room quite like a highly sensitive person. “There’s just this intuition they have about their environment that other people generally aren’t aware of,” Aron said. This usually means you’re more likely to notice if someone is upset — and then react accordingly.

4. The trait helps you at work.

Highly sensitive people are excellent team players, according to Aron. Not only that, but you make a great leader (think teachers, therapists or managers) because you care about the well-being and success of your employees and others.

5. You pursue projects that have meaning.

Sensitive folks actively seek purpose. It doesn’t matter if it’s a new initiative at work or traveling the world, you’re most likely drawn to activities that bring meaningful stimulation to your life. Highly sensitive people are also known for being service-oriented.

6. You think and feel more deeply.

This means you like to process events, situations and changes more thoroughly, according to Ted Zeff, author of The Highly Sensitive Person’s Survival Guide. Additionally, highly sensitive people cry more easily – and research shows that’s certainly not a bad thing when it comes to your well-being. Emotions are not a weakness (make this your mantra). 

7. You’re detail-oriented.

Mark this on your resume. Highly sensitive people are the first ones to notice even the subtlest of changes, like if someone got a new haircut or redecorated their living room, making you impeccably detail-oriented.

8. You’re emotional in your relationships.

How deep is your love? Very. Strong emotions and being in-tune with your significant other’s needs are just a few of the positive characteristics of a highly sensitive romantic partner. They’ll always know that you care.

9. You have good manners.

Step aside, Emily Post. According to Aron, sensitive individuals are known for being highly conscientious and exhibiting good manners, whether that means offering a seat on the subway or holding a door open. This also means you notice when someone isn’t being so courteous (and, honestly, how rude).

10. You’re wired to be this way.

When it comes down to it, why fight something you were born to be? Research suggests that highly sensitive people are neurologically wired to be emotional and empathetic.

In other words? You can’t fight nature. It’s so much better to embrace every aspect of your personality — tears and all.

Mindful in Mourning

My father died almost a month ago, and in the midst of that heartbreak I remain grateful for the practice of mindfulness.

I remember my teachers explaining how training the mind, day by day, under normal circumstances develops skills that serve when normalcy implodes. At the time, I didn’t understand the wisdom of those teachings because I hadn’t lived through the intensity of such distress. I understand better, now, having relied on all that I’d learned to see me through these past weeks.

As my father moved into his last days of life, we spent the time in hospital. We watched his transition, and held him — mentally and physically — as he receded from this world and moved toward whatever comes next. Staying mindful meant feeling the paradox of time speeding steadily toward his death, and the slow slippage of his life. It was excruciating and exquisitely present to hold a lifetime of his love in our hands, and share the bridge of knowing that stretches through a glance between eyes.

I was mindful of the presence of life with death, and the need, in the end to protect his right to die when there was no more real life left. I witnessed the compassion of the incredibly skillful and caring medical providers. And I observed my horror and the heartless intransigence of egoistic clinicians who broke the sacred trust of their profession and did harm by practicing mindless medicine.

Mindfulness was my guide in pleading on his behalf for a dignified death, and mindfulness was all that remained when he was permitted to breathe his last. And, mindfulness is here now, in the constant change of mourning and the enduring love.

I realize that the practice of mindfulness is no panacea for pain; if anything, the grief feels more intense and the loss more searing. There is no escape in staying present, but there is comfort in remaining with what is because there is nothing else. Mourning is, just as death is, and for those who carry on, life is.

Grief is a state of being, and we rise through it like an airline rising through the dense clouds of a storm. At first, the mind is socked in, almost blind, and disoriented. Later, there are breaks in the clouds — not quite clear patches, but gaps with discernible features. Then eventually, there are openings.

Mindfulness in grief means noticing and feeling simultaneously. There’s no need to banish the grief and stress, but likewise no need to hold on to it. No amount of pain changes the absence of a loved-one who dies; and no amount of time diminishes that love. Yet time allows loss to become more familiar and manageable.

I can also see, now, that the world is full of loss and people die each and every day. My loss is unique for me, but the experience is universal, and perhaps some small measure of my pain can transform into compassion for others’.

Mindfulness in grief does not mean passivity: It is a mental tool that permits us to dedicate some small benefit of presence beyond the narrowness of our own suffering. This is part of our own healing, but not done solely for our own healing. It is the orientation of compassion, and kindness, and empathy that illumines the space of mind. It is the quality of openness that seems so clear when we finally rise out of the clouds, and it endures even when the light fades.

Death of Civilization; Reclamation

Death of Civilization; Reclamation


Six years ago Civilization died under a hail of kinetic energy weapons, leaving the stunned survivors around the world to struggle through five years of almost continuous winter. Most people starved to death, many resorted to cannibalism but eventually starved to death anyway. Only a few survivors were prepared enough, strong enough, or ruthless enough, to survive the unending worldwide cold. Nobody survived unscathed. Now, in the sixth summer after the war, the sun has reappeared, the snow has departed and the weather appears to have become more normal. After giving profound thanks to God, for the first time in years the prepared survivors have been able to sow their fields and allow their herds to grow, while they prepare for what they have little doubt is coming. What is coming are the other survivors, the ones that survived mainly by using human beings as cattle. For the most part they have no cattle, their fields are planted with old hybrid seed that will barely produce food and then only once. But what they do have is an abiding faith in Allah, the satisfaction of finally having an American Caliphate, a warrior culture, and weapons, many weapons. The only way the Caliphate can grow and prosper is for them to take for themselves what the survivalists have. The only way for the survivalists to survive, is to protect what they have and they are more than willing to do so. The survivalists are also well armed and the General had hand-picked most of his men so they aren’t teary-eyed, turn the other cheek, Christians but are warriors also. Civilization has ended, but the fight for survival continues. Only all four of the horsemen of the Apocalypse have been riding throughout the world for the past six years and shall continue to do so. Conquest, War, Famine and Death now have a new deadly friend, Pestilence, only their new friend appears to be man-made and redefines the word deadly. The saga continues. The survivors are also working desperately to stave off a new dar.

Our Future Generations Can Teach Us a Thing or Two About Arctic Drilling

2015-08-28-1440730147-1268347-BellaBlog1Chicago.jpg

Last week, President Obama made a terribly risky decision for the Arctic. His administration cleared the final hurdle that allows for drilling into oil-bearing zones in the Arctic Ocean, approving one of Shell Oil’s modified drilling permits for the Chukchi Sea. That decision puts the fate of the fragile Arctic Ocean, and a piece of our climate future, in the hands of Shell – a company with a track record of stumbles and mishaps in the Arctic that hardly inspires confidence.

To put this decision into context, it’s important to understand the climate legacy President Obama has sought to put into place for himself. Obama’s climate policy was born of a commitment to acting on climate change for the sake of future generations, a commitment seemingly at odds with green-lighting the drilling for and burning of the billions of barrels of oil currently locked up beneath the Chukchi Sea.

Just last month, in more than 20 events across 15 states, citizens across the country banded together in a nationwide protest calling on President Obama to stop Shell – or any other oil company – from drilling in the Arctic Ocean. And one of the most compelling voices from that day of action came from the “future generations” that President Obama is seeking to protect – our kids and grandkids, who will bear the brunt of climate change should we continue down our current road of fossil fuel dependence.

Bella Parra, all of 11 years old, stood among her peers a stone’s throw away from Lake Michigan in Chicago – President Obama’s hometown – and spoke out about Arctic drilling:

Hi, my name is Bella Parra, daughter of Barbara Klipp, and I (like all of you) strongly dislike Shell’s plans for our future! When my mom told me that Shell was planning to drill in the Arctic, I got so mad. Two times I went to Washington, D.C., for Alaska Wilderness Week and I learned so much about Alaska and wildlife. We learned about indigenous people, caribou, polar bears, and all kinds of ocean animals like whales and lots more. I probably learned more there than I learn in school. I thought of what could happen to the wildlife that’s been there for ages.

When I was in third grade, I had to do a report on an animal, and I chose the polar bear. Not because of the environmental facts, but because it reminded me of my dog. The more and more research I did, the more I realized how much trouble they are in. And global warming is a big problem today too.

In my research I found out that polar bears usually have twins or triplets. I asked Siri the definition of empathy and she said “understanding and comprehending another’s feelings.” Close your eyes and imagine you have twins or triplets to watch. As you swim, you try to find land or ice to rest on so you don’t drown. Can you picture that? Drilling by the Arctic? And guess who has made this “dream”…I mean nightmare…possible? Shell! Do you want another oil spill? No! Do we want our special endangered animals to get covered in oil like in the Gulf? No!!!

One of my favorite songs is “What a Wonderful World.” Out of my window, our world looks great. But will we be able to think that if Shell drills in the Arctic and another spill happens?

Stop Shell now while we still can. The world may depend on it!

As Bella said, we can’t ignore the signs of climate change in the Arctic, or the impacts that an Arctic drilling program will have on our nation’s climate future. Iconic species like walrus, polar bears and bowhead whales are already being impacted by the disappearance of Arctic ice and other long term impacts from climate change, and now will be subjected to disturbances from Shell’s drilling program as well.

Whatever happens this summer, the world will be watching. Millions of Americans have come forward to save the Arctic from both climate disaster and the potential for devastating spills — but this fight is just beginning.

Five years on from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster, and wildlife in the Gulf of Mexico continues to suffer. Earlier this month, the National Climatic Data Center revealed 2015 to be breaking global temperature records. It’s time to safeguard the Arctic and our nation’s climate future – our children don’t deserve to pay for our mistakes.

4 Ways Introverted Parents Can Get Involved In Their Kids’ Classroom

When I was a kid, my parents made sure I got to and from school and completed my homework on time. That was about it. They didn’t accompany me on “play dates” or know my friends’ parents. Mom and dad had their own buddies, most of whom didn’t have kids. When we had school-wide concerts at Christmas and in the springtime, my dad didn’t even come. Why would he? Mom had that covered.

Nowadays, their encouraging but generally disinterested attitude would be considered downright neglectful. Today’s parents are expected to get involved. And I’m talking at the grass roots. That means helping to fundraise. Showing up for monthly publishing parties and performances like the Hispanic Heritage Day concert, during which I waited for over two hours to see my son’s kindergarten class take the stage to sing for two minutes. Distributing snacks and goodie bags on your child’s birthday. Being an active member of your child’s educational community by volunteering as a “reading buddy.” Monitoring lunchtime, which, for a class of 5-year-olds, means wrestling with milk cartons and issuing countless reminders that forks are not for throwing.

Really, I’d rather take a page from my parents’ book and stay home. It’s not that I’m unfriendly, but like most introverts, I’m allergic to small talk and dislike being surrounded by chattering masses of people.

But then guilt creeps in. I’m a work-at-home parent, and my son’s public school is two blocks from our apartment. His teachers need all the help they can get, and as much as I’d like to deny it, I have time to give. So one day at pick-up, when my son’s teacher asked if anyone would like to be the “class parent”—coordinating between the school and parents, facilitating a community among the children’s families—I…almost said yes.

Being a class parent went against the bedrock of my introvert nature. My James Bond pick-up routine—zipping in to extract my target and sneaking out before anyone spotted me—would be ruined by socializing. And while I admire and appreciate the work of the PTO leaders, I didn’t want to meet with them or even have them know I existed, really. Especially not after I attended the first PTO meeting and witnessed the intense passion with which end-of-year field trips were discussed.

Still, I wanted to help out and be a good, modern parent. So I did the right thing and waited a couple of days to see if anyone else wanted to do it. When no one stepped forward, I finally signed my name on the dotted line.

I’ve been a class parent now for a little more than two months, and while it’s been challenging, those challenges have felt good for me to take on. I’ve had the pleasure of bonding with great people I otherwise wouldn’t have met, and I’m finding that many fellow parents also feel intimidated about making friends.

So, fellow introverts, I believe that you too can take on a class leadership role. Here’s how I manage it:

I limit my communications with parents to only the essential stuff.

The PTO asked me to gather emails and phone numbers from the parents so that I could pass along messages about their volunteering or fundraising needs. But I’m sensitive to being deluged with information: whether in real life or online, I don’t like a lot of noise. And I’m sure I’m not the only one.

My son’s teachers had already organized a class website with message boards and email capabilities. So I put that to good use, posting PTO information people could choose to view if they were interested. And when I have to send important messages to parents’ inboxes, I keep them short and clear.

As a result, people pay attention to my notices. When I forwarded along the teachers’ request for art supply donations, we generated the needed funds in less than 24 hours.

I engage people one-on-one and avoid getting involved in big group discussions.

When I do need to talk with people in real time, I do it privately. I’ve come to have a good rapport with my son’s teachers, and I am comfortable asking them how things are going or what help they need from me. I’m also slowly getting to know the names of each parent and student by letting it happen naturally. I might find myself standing next to the same person a couple of days in a row and having a conversation. Or I simply wait until I have a reason to talk to a person before approaching them.

I don’t stand by the classroom door shaking hands or rounding parents together to hash out decisions. I interact in a way that feels right for me and probably many of the other parents—I’m not the only introvert around!

Being a class parent gives me a reason to meet people, so it actually helps my social anxiety.

I have found that having a role in the classroom increases my social confidence. When I ask after a parent’s child, I don’t feel nosy. I’m the class parent after all, and it’s my role to get to know everyone. I have the perfect excuse to build a connection with the other parents. It’s like wearing a sticker that says, “It’s okay to say hi to me. I work here.” I’m not simply “Felix’s dad.” I also have a function to play in the classroom community, and that gives me a shield to hide behind when I do have to meet someone.

I let my social instincts guide me so that I do what’s needed, not just what I’m told.

I won’t put myself out there in ways that don’t feel comfortable to me. As I said above, I value the parents who act as cheerleaders for school spirit or who make fundraising for the school a second job, but that’s not the role I want to play. Instead, I do what I’m able to do and say “sorry, but…” to those things I won’t or can’t do. In order for me to do the best I can, I have to do it on my terms. Otherwise, my son’s class will be out of a class parent, and who’s served by that?

I’ve learned that it’s perfectly fine to engage in the manner that feels best to me, using my strengths to organize behind the scenes. I feel good helping out my son’s teachers. So when they asked if I would read a holiday poem at the Christmas concert, I agreed. But after I read my poem and the concert was finished, I collected my family and slipped out the back of the auditorium without saying a word to anyone. After all, I’m still an introvert.

3 Lessons a Teenager Taught Me

2015-08-28-1440740099-1187228-dawn190055_1280.jpg

You know the old saying, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks?” Well, that’s not necessarily true. About 16 years ago, I met this girl, and she was beautiful in every way. I didn’t get along with all of her family at first, but she had a brother. He and I got along pretty good.

Several years later that girl became my wife, and about five years into our marriage her oldest brother became very sick. He was diagnosed with a form of leukemia and 11 months later, he passed away.

August 28 marks 10 years since he left this life. I learned a great deal from Wes. He touched me and the rest of the family, plus millions of others. You see, at the age of 17, when a major U.S. college football team was honoring him by sending memorabilia, the coach would call, and the Make-a-Wish Foundation was offering him different things, Wes wanted to leave a legacy. He wanted to let others know it was going to be okay and if we had faith, we could move mountains. He did this by using money given to him to purchase small coins with a mustard seed in the center.

He would give one to anyone he came in contact with along his journey. So, in remembrance of the tenth anniversary of Wes’ passing, I would like to share three lessons I learned from him, with you:

Love Makes it All Right: It doesn’t matter how bad your current situation is in your life. In fact, it doesn’t matter how bad your life is. When you love authentically, it changes everything.

Sometimes, All You Have to Do Is Believe: Until his last breath this was Wes’ philosophy. I have clung tightly to this belief. It doesn’t matter what your religious standing is, you have to believe in something, even if it is just yourself.

Legacy’s Linger: It’s been 10 years. The legacy Wes left was to be genuine, forgiving, loving, and inspiring.

When tough times have hit me as an adult I tend to get a poor attitude. When they hit Wes in the face and he was facing death, he encouraged others to continue believing, and comforted everyone. A teenager.

In a world riddled with terror, pain, death, and negativity, you can make a difference. In fact, changing the entire world begins with you. If you step out, take a risk, and give it a shot, maybe you will be the one who leads the way.

What can you do today to inspire someone else in their life?

I would like to extend a special thank you to my mother-in-law for her generosity in allowing me to share this part of Wes’ story.

Friday Talking Points — Every Sulfurous Belch

OK, I fully admit I stole that title. Well, maybe not “stole,” since I’m about to give it proper credit, but it certainly wasn’t my own original idea. The line comes from George Will, and (of course) refers to Donald Trump. Part of the fun for Democrats this summer has been watching the angst of serious-minded conservative columnists as they realize how large a portion of the Republican base doesn’t really care what serious-minded conservatives inside the Beltway think about much of anything. Will was the best (but by no means only) example of this last week, as he started his column off with a real humdinger of an opening paragraph:


Every sulfurous belch from the molten interior of the volcanic Trump phenomenon injures the chances of a Republican presidency. After Donald Trump finishes plastering a snarling face on conservatism, any Republican nominee will face a dauntingly steep climb to reach even the paltry numbers that doomed Mitt Romney.

Ah, c’mon George… tell us how you really feel about Trump! Heh.

The entire Trump phenomenon reminds me of a basic rule from the world of magical/fantasy fiction. It’s not quite Asimov’s “three laws of robotics,” but it’s still been used my many authors who write about wizards casting dangerous spells. The rule of thumb among wizards? “Do not call up that which you cannot put down.” Don’t summon demons or otherworldly forces if you’re not strong enough to defeat them, in other words.

You can probably see where I’m going with this, in relation to Donald Trump. The Republican Party has called up a force of nature that it is, quite obviously, completely incapable of controlling or defeating. Hey, couldn’t have happened to a nicer political party! All those decades of dog-whistle language, coded references, and wink-wink-nudge-nudge that the Republican Party has benefited from are now coming home to roost.

George Will isn’t the only one freaking out by this new reality. Bill Kristol, who is famously always wrong about pretty much everything, wrote a column this week proposing eight or nine new candidates for the Republican presidential race (the most absurd: Samuel Alito). Because, obviously, seventeen is not enough. Frank Luntz, famous Republican pollster and spin doctor, held a focus group of Trump supporters which left him (according to his own statement) weak in the knees, with his legs all a-tremble.

Of course, not everyone is horrified at Trump’s success. He just picked up the endorsement of David Duke, for whatever that’s worth. Trump also tossed out Jorge Ramos from a press conference, and called two of his supporters “passionate” after they beat a homeless man with metal pipes, in support of Trump’s position on immigrants. All the while, Trump’s numbers continue to improve in the polls, where he’s now edging towards 30 percent of all Republican primary voters. If he manages to top 35 percent, then he may become absolutely unstoppable (much to serious-minded conservatives’ collective dismay).

Some Republicans are now even contemplating rigging the primary so Trump’s name doesn’t appear on their state’s ballots. As usual, when Republicans can’t win at the polls, their fallback position is to cheat. State-level party bigwigs in Virginia and North Carolina are considering taking this route, and South Carolina already has the rule the others are contemplating — every Republican candidate must sign a “loyalty oath” to support the party’s eventual nominee and not run as an independent in the general election, or their name doesn’t appear on the primary election ballot. Obviously, these sorts of pledges are utterly unenforceable, so it’ll be interesting to see how Trump plays it. But the mere fact that the state-level party honchos are even considering this sort of thing is an accurate measure of the desperation which exists among establishment Republicans right now.

Trump continues to roil the Republican waters on the immigration issue. The other GOP candidates are being exposed as complete cowards when it comes to reacting to Trump’s grand “ship them all home” plan. Scott Walker probably stumbled the worst, as he floundered around for days trying to figure out his stance on the Fourteenth Amendment. He was for changing it, against changing it, and tried to brush the entire question off; none of which made him seem even one tiny iota presidential.

Jeb! Bush thought he might tap into some of the Trump anger by tossing around the term “anchor babies,” which was almost as spectacular a failure as Walker’s vacillation. Jeb! then tried to explain that anchor babies were really more of an Asian problem, thereby offending two minority demographics at once. Boy, it’s fun to watch the Republican “minority outreach” effort in action, isn’t it? As George Will so accurately predicted (most especially on Latino and Asian vote percentages), Republicans “face a dauntingly steep climb to reach even the paltry numbers that doomed Mitt Romney.” Jeb! also (you just cannot make this stuff up, folks!) marked the ten-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina by releasing a new ad this week showing Jeb! standing right next to Mike “Heckuva Job” Brown, the disgraced former head of FEMA who fiddled while New Orleans drowned. As the image is shown, Bush intones: “We have the best emergency response team on the ground, in the country, and in the world.” Heckuva job, Brownie!

Over on the Democratic side of the race, there was an explosion of interest in a new candidate that might be labeled “Bidenpalooza.” Joe’s obviously seriously considering a run, and the Wall Street Journal even reported he is currently leaning towards throwing his hat in the ring. Don’t expect an announcement any time soon, though, as Biden says he’ll make a decision by the end of next month.

Bernie Sanders got a front-page story in the New York Times this week. Of course, being the mainstream media and all, it was a total hit piece full of the snarkiest language possible. It absolutely ignored Bernie’s entire message and platform (of course), and absolutely refused to analyze why so many people are flocking to support him. Cornel West just endorsed Bernie’s candidacy this week, but very few political reporters noticed, since it doesn’t fit in with their “only white liberals support Sanders” go-to storyline.

That’s enough from the campaign trail for one week. In other fun news, the oldest message-in-a-bottle ever was returned to its sender recently, after a journey of more than a century. A British scientific group sent out a thousand postcards in bottles from 1904 through 1906, to study the currents in the North Sea. A couple just found one on a German island, and sent the postcard back to the group (which still exists). The Marine Biological Association made good on the century-old promise on the card, and sent a reward of one old shilling to the couple for returning the postcard. I don’t really have any reason for including this story, but it did make me smile, in an otherwise Trump-filled week. Maybe Sting or The Police can write a song about it, or something!

 

Most Impressive Democrat of the Week

We’re changing the title of this award this week, because they’re not technically Democrats. So we’re handing out the Most Impressive Activist Group Of The Week to Neighborhood Legislature, for their amusing and entirely appropriate political theater in California. From the story:


A group of protesters in California took a stand against the influence of money in politics Wednesday by imagining what it would look like if lawmakers had to publicly advertise their campaign donors on their clothes à la professional stock car drivers.

The protesters placed cardboard cutouts of all 120 California state lawmakers and Gov. Jerry Brown (D) in front of the state capitol in Sacramento. Each legislator wore the logos of the corporations that back them in the style of NASCAR drivers’ brand-filled uniforms.

The photos alone are worth clicking that link to see.

We’ve long been an advocate of this idea, although we certainly can’t claim to have thought it up ourselves. As far back as FTP [189] (scroll down to Talking Point 7), we’ve been big fans of plastering donor logos on congresscritters and other politicians. If America is going to be run by bribery, the least we should be able to do is see who is forking over all that money to buy the politicians!

For taking this idea and running with it, and for an absolute brilliant piece of political theater, the Neighborhood Legislature is hereby awarded the Most Impressive Activist Group Of The Week. This is one of those ideas we truly wish would go viral, on a national level.

[Congratulate Neighborhood Legislature on their official webpage, to let them know you appreciate their excellent stunt.]

 

Most Disappointing Democrat of the Week

Before we get to the main award, we do have one (Dis-)Honorable Mention this week, for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, for waging a silly war on boobies. Laws banning topless women from appearing in public were changed a while back in New York, and some enterprising women are using their newfound right to bare their breasts in Times Square. Among the people dressed in Elmo suits or dressed as Captain America, there are now women wearing nothing but a thong and body paint. All of these folks are there for the same reason: to separate the tourists from their money. Charging ten bucks (or whatever the traffic will bear) to appear in a photo has long been a tradition in Times Square, so this is really nothing new.

Now, Times Square does have an even older history of being a sex district with triple-X theaters and whatnot, which was all cleaned up (so as not to scare the tourists) a while back. In other words, Bill de Blasio wanting to ban topless women from Times Square isn’t happening in a vacuum. He doesn’t want a return to the “bad old days,” but at the same time he seems to be overreacting to the perceived problem. If Hizzoner truly does want to end this practice, there’s really only one acceptable way to do so: change the law back. Ban boobies everywhere. This, however, might be a political problem for him.

In fact, the whole fracas really nothing short of knee-jerk “Won’t someone think of the children!!!” overreach. You know what? I bet children who see a painted lady’s chest won’t actually be as traumatized as all the pearl-clutchers think. Bill de Blasio should have stayed out of this fight, which is why he earns a (Dis-)Honorable Mention this week.

But, for the second week in a row, Hillary Clinton is the recipient of our Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week this week. Clinton, like all presidential candidates these days, is struggling to be heard among the thousands of “Did you hear what Trump just said?” stories. So she apparently thought she’d use some shocking language of her own, and compared her political opponents to terrorists, because (by her logic) they both treat women badly.

Where to begin? First, there are hard lines in politics that should never be crossed. You don’t call someone a traitor, for instance, under any circumstances short of them being legally accused of actually selling the country out. Another of these rules is that you don’t call a political opponent a terrorist. Clinton crossed that line, almost flippantly.

Did Clinton have a point to make? Yes she did. Planned Parenthood and abortion are about to be the focus of an enormous political battle in Washington — one that might even result in another government shutdown. The battle has already been joined, and it is going to get fierce next month. Clinton was jumping in to this fray in an admirable fashion, rather than waiting on the sidelines and mouthing vague platitudes. She’s always been a champion for women’s rights, so it is entirely within her wheelhouse.

Even so, Clinton went too far. This is American politics, folks, and terrorist groups aren’t a part of it. The Taliban is not on any American ballot, to put it another way. While there are indeed many groups and countries around the world with horrendous records on women’s rights, it really has no bearing on domestic politics.

A final point: almost all American politicians are gigantic flaming hypocrites on the issue of women’s rights around the world, including not only Hillary Clinton but everyone else running for the presidency as well. If we really want to get up on our high horse about the way the Islamic State treats women, then it would require us (if we’re not going to be gigantic flaming hypocrites) to immediately suspend all ties with Saudi Arabia. The Saudis execute people by publicly beheading them, after all, and women in their country are not even allowed to do simple things like driving on their own. They’re about to have an election where — for the first time ever — women will be allowed to vote. If our gold standard for who America remains friends with is that women’s rights be respected, then our relationship with Saudi Arabia would be the first to go. If Hillary Clinton — or anyone else for that matter — speaks disparagingly about how terrorists treat women, then we would really like to hear someone ask her what her Saudi policy would be.

So for multiple reasons, Hillary linking her political opponents with terrorists was more than a little disappointing. Just because Trump is sucking all the oxygen out of the room right now does not mean Democrats should be stooping to his level (or even lower). Clinton can fight for women’s rights as fervently as possible without making such odious comparisons. She needs to back down on this one, but for now it has earned her another Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week award.

[Hillary Clinton is a private citizen, and our longstanding policy is not to provide contact information for candidate websites, so you’ll have to search her contact info out yourself, sorry.]

 

Friday Talking Points

Volume 359 (8/28/15)

It’s still the Silly Season in Washington, so we don’t have a whole lot of substantive political talking points this week. When Congress returns, we’re in for a number of high-profile fights, but until then we’re just making do with what we’ve got. Just to warn everyone in advance.

 

1
   Making America Grate

Every so often, we are so struck by a clever turn of phrase that we have to give it a standalone talking point. This is one of those times, as Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post ran an article this week under the best headline we’ve yet seen to describe the Trump phenomenon — a play on Trump’s own campaign slogan. It’s a cheap pun, but that doesn’t make it any less funny:


How Donald Trump Makes America Grate

 

2
   From denial to anger

This framing of the Trump situation is likely going to appear again and again, but Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post gets credit for being the first to point it out.

“The Republican Party seems to be destined to go through the classic ‘five stages of grief’ as they come to grips with Donald Trump’s success. Most establishment Republicans are still in the first stage, denial. Some have already moved on to anger — the second stage. I mean, did you read George Will’s ‘every sulfurous belch’ column this week? The third stage is going to be problematic, since it is bargaining — and Trump is a notoriously tough bargainer. This will inevitably lead to depression, and sooner or later to the final stage, acceptance. You might call it the grief of watching the Republican Party die, right in front of their eyes.”

 

3
   Strong growth

This is one to hit Jeb! with, in particular.

“Jeb Bush is running on a promise to achieve four percent growth in America’s economy. I wonder if he saw the most recent numbers, which showed the economy grew 3.7 percent in the second quarter of this year? Seems like President Obama’s doing almost as well as what Bush is promising, which reminds me of Mitt Romney’s promise to get unemployment down to six percent before 2016. Remember that one? Obama managed to achieve that in about half the time Romney promised. Seems like Republicans can’t even promise they’ll handle the American economy as well as Democrats routinely do in the real world.”

 

4
   $ 200 million and counting

Data to use in other state-level legalization fights.

“Colorado and Washington have so far taken in over two hundred million dollars in marijuana tax revenue. We don’t yet have data for Alaska and Oregon, but you can bet they’re raking in millions as well. By legalizing recreational marijuana use, these states have turned a big drag on their state budgets — policing, prisons, clogged courtrooms, and all the rest of it — into a huge asset. I’m sure there are other state governments out there who are paying attention. The success of legalization continues to benefit the states which have implemented it. $ 200 million ain’t exactly pocket change.”

 

5
   President Barack Obama Highway

This is going to be lots of fun for Democrats, for years to come.

“I see that Riviera Beach, Florida just voted to change the name of a road from ‘Old Dixie Highway’ to ‘President Barack Obama Highway.’ Personally, I can’t think of a better way to get rid of institutionalized racist memorials than to rename them after the first African-American president. In fact, I would bet that after Obama’s term in office ends, there will be a lot more things named after him all across America. Call it the revenge of Democrats after the orgy of naming so many things after Ronald Reagan a few years back.”

 

6
   Maybe Amazon will step in

This one is pretty funny.

“Among the many creative uses of drone aircraft we can now add their use to deliver banned things inside prison walls. An attempt was made in Maryland recently to fly in some drugs and pornography aboard a drone. While this attempt was foiled, it seems such an obvious use of new technology that we’ll likely see more and more of these attempts in the near future. How exactly are the cops going to keep the skies over prisons clear of drones? Skeet shooting?”

 

7
   Jade Helm invasion a total flop

This qualifies as rubbing salt in the wound, really.

“I notice that the predicted invasion of Texas by the United States military seems not to have materialized. It wasn’t so long ago that the Texas governor was issuing dire warnings of the nefarious intent of America’s own military in carrying out an exercise called ‘Jade Helm 15,’ which did nothing but stoke paranoid delusions within the state. Well, the summer’s drawing to a close and I still haven’t seen one headline about the Army taking over Texas, or confiscating everyone’s guns, or rounding up its citizens for concentration camps, or any of the rest of the nonsense the rightwingers were spouting not so long ago. If Jade Helm really was a planned invasion of Texas, I have to say it’s been a total flop so far.”

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.

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

The Under-Appreciated Power of a Compliment

2015-08-28-1440721200-9544401-girlwithfork.jpg

We all know counting calories is a valuable tool in losing weight. But do you know that counting compliments could be just as valuable? Studies indicate that simple, direct, specific compliments can have a profound impact on a person’s self image — especially among adolescent girls.

To understand the impact of compliments, one study followed college-aged women in Canada who had expressed concerns about their weight. The study then divided the women into two groups: Those who received positive feedback from friends and family about their concerns, and those who got negative feedback.

Those who received compliments either didn’t gain — and in some cases lost — weight over the span of nine months. Those who got negative feedback actually ended up gaining weight. This dynamic starts at a young age. We know that teen years are difficult, especially for girls, when it comes to issues of weight.

One study found an incredible 80 percent of 10-year-olds are afraid of being fat. By high school, just 29 percent of girls said they feel “happy the way I am” with research indicating low self-esteem can easily become self-perpetuating. Clearly, there’s a big compliment gap that we need to fill.

As with the women in the Canadian study, girls who get more negative feedback are more likely to end up with weight problems. Research has found, for example, that young girls who feel the need to diet because of poor self image often end up gaining more weight later on than those who don’t. And, this pains those of us who work in an industry designed to transform lives, people who feel stigmatized because of their weight are more than twice as likely to become obese — regardless of what their actual weight was when they felt that stigma.

Girls who don’t hear enough compliments and develop a poor self-image are far more likely to engage in other unhealthy behaviors as well. Imagine how different their lives would be if they heard more compliments than put downs, from friends and family.

But the problem is deeper than that. We get so few authentic compliments these days that, while they stand out as memorable events, we often don’t know how to receive them.

That was the finding in a Harris poll Nutrisystem commissioned to get a better understanding of the importance of compliments. Specifically, it found more than 80 percent of women remember the last time they received a compliment, but nearly 40 percent of them said they find it difficult to accept the compliments they receive. It’s sobering that we hear and are conditioned to be impacted by negative feedback more than positive.

What this suggests is that we don’t just need to be giving more compliments. We need to be careful in how they’re worded and how we back them up.

I know this first-hand as a manager and a mother. Guy Winch, writing in Psychology Today, explained it well — “asking people with low self-esteem to reframe a compliment (and) discuss what it meant to them…allowed them to accept the compliment and feel more positively about themselves.” In other words, the pitch went from falling on deaf ears to finally being heard and embraced.

There are a few other good compliment rules to follow if you want to make the most of your efforts to increase the global supply of positive feedback.

Compliment Rules & Tips

For starters: Be specific. Saying “you’re awesome,” isn’t the same as saying “the party you hosted was wonderful in every respect from the opening toast to the thoughtful goodie bags.” The first is less meaningful than the second, because the more specific the compliment, the more thought the person making it had to put into it.

Related to this is authenticity. Everyone can detect the difference between gratuitous flattery and a bona fide compliment. The world doesn’t need more insincere flattery; we need genuine, veritable compliments.

Last rule: Resolve to offer at least one, heartfelt compliment to someone every day. And when you receive one, try your best to #NowBelieveIt.

Pissing People Off Is Part of the Work Sometimes

I’m going to piss you off.

You or someone else… it’s going to happen.

All because I’m going to touch on the things that make people feel unsettled and unsteady, and it’s going to make someone mad. They may unsubscribe, unlike my social media pages, and tell the people around them that I’m the worst. Sometimes they may even send me a nasty email or comment letting me know just how angry I made them. How wrong I am for what I said or did.

The thing about doing this kind of work — work that’s in service of supporting others in making amazing things happen in their lives — is that it’s going to trigger things in people that they don’t want triggered. It’s going to force them to face what makes them most uncomfortable, the things they most want to avoid. Blocks and taking personal responsibility and how to make changes where we most desire them in ways that may seem a little strange or against the norm.

This kind of work bumps up against people’s deepest “stuff,” rubbing on raw spots that have been there for years. Kicking up things that have settled deep into the cracks of their heart and soul. Things they aren’t ready to have kicked up.

Pissing people off is part of the work sometimes.

I used to worry about upsetting people, because I genuinely believe that no one person is right about anything, and everyone’s opinions and experiences are valid and true. But the world doesn’t need me to be so considerate of everyone that I shrink myself down and let my voice get lost in the shuffle of making sure everyone feels heard and happy. The world doesn’t need me to fit in seamlessly, never bumping up against anyone else, because I was made with a very unique perspective and beliefs/views of the world. As were you. As is everyone.

2015-08-27-1440698658-2751407-pissingpeopleoffwithblogs.jpg

The world needs us to embrace who we are and what we believe, so that we can have the impact we were born to create. So we can really show up and do the work we’re here to do.

I have a fierceness inside of me I’m only beginning to embrace. It’s the part of me that has no tolerance for people taking life for granted, for settling for less than they deserve. The part of me that has no patience for the excuses we make to avoid doing the work to bring our dreams to life.

For a long time I set this fierceness to the side, trying to guide with a more gentle approach. Trying not to ruffle any feathers or make anyone mad. I did good work… and for awhile that was enough. But I’m ready to do great work. Work that transforms lives and changes the world around us for the better. And gentle is not enough, at least not for who I am.

I’m intense. I’m fierce. I’m outspoken and I call it like it is.

Am I also loving and gentle and kind? Absolutely. But without bringing all parts of me to my work, I wasn’t living true to who I’m here to be, and how I’m here to work. I wasn’t showing up fully. In order to live true to our purpose and be in service of others, sometimes we have to be a little fierce. Sometimes we have to speak up and say what’s true so that others are forced to face what they don’t want to face. Sometimes we have to call it like it is, with just enough love and compassion.

All this to say…

Don’t be afraid to piss people off.

I’ve received some of the angriest emails after writing the things I believe in deeply. I’m not going to pretend the words haven’t stung from time to time (especially those first few), but I always remember that it’s not about me. I’m here to speak my truth and to call people on their sh*t so they can start living lives they really love, doing work that lights their soul on fire. That’s why I’m here, not to make people like me. And in the process of doing so, some people are going to get mad… because they’re not ready to face it.

That’s okay.
I’m not a bad person or coach.
I didn’t do anything wrong.
Not everyone is going to like me.

This isn’t permission to be a jerk. This is permission to live true to what tugs at your heart and fills you with intense passion.

For me that’s helping people build lives and businesses around their passions and aligned with their souls. And I won’t tolerate anything less for the people that wander into my orbit. For you, it might be something similar, or it might be something different. Whatever it is, don’t be afraid of the fierceness and intensity that comes with that passion. Don’t be afraid to speak up and speak out.

Don’t ever be afraid to piss people off.

The world isn’t going to end, and if you’re worried about pissing off those few people, you’re going to miss out on helping so many more people.

For every one nasty email I get, I receive at least 20 – 50 positive emails thanking me for telling it like it is. For speaking what’s true for me. For sharing myself and my mind. For showing up fully.

Are you willing to show up more fully and passionately in your work?

Weekend Roundup: Refugees and Market Woes Put World on Edge

The undertow of China’s slackening economy and the mounting tide of refugees pushing through border after border in Europe put the world on edge this week. After spiraling down, volatile stock markets rallied back, for now. . .

Writing from Beijing, Fred Hu argues that what we are witnessing is China’s shift toward the “new normal” of a slower growth paradigm focused on domestic consumption instead of investment and export-led growth. He expresses confidence that his country will weather the storm, writing, “it is a loser’s game to bet against China’s leaders.” Nobel laureate Michael Spence locates the culprit of market volatility in the flood of funds unleashed by low interest rates looking for higher returns, which has led to the gap between a financial bubble and the real economy now undergoing a correction.

Economist Brad DeLong argues that China’s “supergrowth”only has five more years to run before it becomes just “another corrupt middle-income country.” Meanwhile, we look at the “Eyes on China” Instagram project that reveals real life behind China’s virtual firewall. WorldPost China Correspondent Matt Sheehan asks whether China’s “one-child policy enforcers” can boost the cognitive skills of children in rural Danfeng County. Summarizing his research after a stint at Beijing’s Renmin University, Israeli scholar Alon Tal concludes that China’s unpopular one-child policy has helped avoid famine and even worse ecological damage in a country with a population approaching 1.5 billion people.

Often guided by maps on their smartphones, a swell of refugees fleeing war and seeking asylum has overwhelmed European authorities. António Guterres, United Nations high commissioner for refugees, puts the crisis in a global context of world disorder where no one is in control. “When power relations are unclear, impunity and unpredictability tend to prosper,” he says. “That, I believe, is the reality behind the high levels of displacement that are taking place in today’s world.” Writing from Berlin, Germany’s Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Economics and Energy Minister Sigmar Gabriel present a 10-point plan to solve the refugee crisis. From Vienna, WorldPost Middle East Correspondent Sophia Jones tells the horrid tale of over 70 refugees found dead in a truck at the Austrian-Hungarian border. Danae Leivada reports on a gigantic car ferry chartered by the Greek government to take thousands of Syrian refugees from the small islands they have reached to Athens, where they are being settled into a new camp.

World Reporter Charlotte Alfred describes how a library in the “Jungle” camp in Calais, France is bringing poetry to refugees settled there. And HuffPost Germany’s Christoph Asche relays what one priest in that country is doing to address the refugee crisis.

As the U.S. Congress’ vote on the Iran nuclear deal nears, dissident journalist Akbar Ganji and UN envoy Richard Falk appeal for its passage. We also post several video messages to Americans from other Iranian voices, including Nobel laureate Shirin Ebadi, supporting the deal. Iran’s former Foreign Minister Ebrahim Yazdi writes an unusual open letter to Congress, which argues that the “economic deprivation” caused by sanctions and “the pall of war” have never advanced democracy and human rights in his country. Muhammad Sahimi argues that Iran’s agreement to stall its nuclear program is a defeat for Ayatollah Khamenei.

On the one year anniversary of the Gaza war cease-fire, Harvard’s Daniel Sobelman writes that Israel and Hamas seem to be inching toward ending the siege of the Gaza strip. In an excerpt from his new book, Palestinian journalist Mohammed Omer remembers the events of that day and one boy who lost members of his family just as the truce was announced. Reflecting on the death in recent days of Pakistan’s former spy chief Hamid Gul, Mohammad Taqi says Gul was a “pan-Islamist fundamentalist” who was the “military equivalent of Osama bin Laden.” We also take a look at the trailer of the forthcoming biopic, “He Named Me Malala,” about the young girl and human rights activist who survived an attack on girl’s education in Pakistan and publish an excerpt of Shanoor Seervai’s e-single book, “Daughters of the Red Light,” about women in Mumbai escaping from India’s notorious sex industry.

Qasim Rashid says that the Islamic State’s persecution of Christians is in stark contrast with the way Christians are supposed to be treated in Islam. In a photo essay, we look at historic photos of the ancient city of Palmyra now being destroyed by ISIS. Alaa Abdel Fattah, the software engineer turned protest leader during the Arab Spring, says in a HuffPost Arabi interview from Cairo that “the revolutionary youth are too weak for the regime to care about reconciling with them.” Raghida Dergham worries that “the security situation in Turkey has started to resemble what is happening in Arab nations, whose capitals and ancient cities are frequently rocked by bombs but also confused politics.” Amnesty International’s Campaigns Director for South East Asia Josef Benedict worries that this weekend’s massive demonstrations against corruption could end in violence.

In “Forgotten Fact” this week we look at “the other drought” — not in the western U.S., but in southern Africa.

Writing from São Paulo where she met 100 other McDonald’s workers from around the world, Bettie Anne Douglas chronicles her 7-year battle to raise the minimum wage.

10 Tips That Can Take Your Life From Average to Awesome

What are the top 10 good habits that I should follow daily to have a beautiful life? originally appeared on Quora: The best answer to any question.

Answer by Nicolas Cole, Creative Marketing Strategist, on Quora:

These 10 habits have helped me transform my life from one of frustration, anxiety, anger, and helplessness to one of empowerment, ambition, purpose, and joy.

1. Wake Up When You Say You’re Going To Wake Up

Aside from the occasional “I’m going to sleep in until 11 AM on a Saturday because I’m visiting my parents’ house and I’m sleeping in my old bed and I haven’t slept in this long in forever,” it behooves you to wake up early.  But more importantly, to wake up when you say you’re going to wake up. That means if you set the alarm for 6:30 AM, you get out of bed at 6:30 AM. Why? Because this is your first promise to yourself of the day. The night before, you set that alarm at that time because you were making a promise to yourself to get up at that time. Starting your day with a broken promise is the same as getting out of bed on the wrong foot. Keep your promise. Wake up.

2. Have A Clean Morning Routine (And Dress The Part)

There are very few things in life that can start your day off as well as a morning routine that has built-in triggers to get your head in the game. Shower. Brush your teeth. Do your hair. But more importantly, choose clothes that force you to rise to the occasion. It’s hard to feel lazy in a suit. Now, I’m not saying wear a suit, but even wearing some jeans with a pair of nice brown dress shoes and a light blue button down is going to make you feel like you’re ready to tackle the day. T-shirt and sweats feels more like “I’m going to stay home, binge on Netflix, and eat potato chips in my bed.” Your morning routine should be more than just the things you have to do to be a functioning human being. It should get you mentally ready for what you have to do that day, whatever that is.

3. A Moment Of Mindfulness

In addition to the above, meditate. This is best done in the morning but after the shower (so you’re slightly more awake). Take 5 or 10 minutes and just sit in silence. Listen to where you are. This helps you understand if you’re starting your day in a good place, or if you woke up frustrated, or if something is stressing you out, or if there’s something you’re really excited about–and from there, you will better understand yourself and how you can best approach the day to work with yourself as you currently are. This is so important.

4. Regular Meals

I am a bodybuilder so this rings a bit more true to me personally, but I think there is something to be said about having regular meal times with meals that are prepared and ready to go. This helps you ensure that something as important as remembering to eat doesn’t get skipped over or replaced with more work throughout the day. If you plan ahead, this also helps you stay healthy. Eating is already habit, so the more you can prepare for that habit with healthy, pre-cooked choices, the more effective you will be at maintaining your health even with a busy schedule.

5. The Little Moments

We all have 5 minutes here, 10 minutes there. However with technology we have become accustomed to filling those little time periods with social media on our phones, watching videos on YouTube, etc. Take all those mindless apps and put them in a folder on your phone called “Wasting My Life Away.” On the front page, replace the spaces with productive apps–for me: Duolingo (to learn a foreign language), CNNmoney, iBooks, etc. Make those little moments count with the habit of learning, instead of just consuming.

6. Free Time Means Free Time

This habit is for the workaholics and entrepreneurs out there like myself who forget that “free time” doesn’t mean “freely working on more new projects.” Free time literally means free time. Time spent on nothing. Go for a walk in the park. Go meet an old friend for coffee. Go sit around and play Cards Against Humanity with a bunch of friends. Go call your grandma. Go watch an entire movie without getting up halfway through because you feel like you’re being unproductive. This free time as a scheduled habit will help reset your brain and help you return to the work later with revitalized enthusiasm.

7.  Manage Your Money

A lot of stress and anxiety stems from finances. However, it’s not usually the mere existence of money and finances that causes the stress, but rather the misunderstanding of how to manage it. Take the time to learn the basics about taxes, stocks, investing, saving, etc. And once every week, two weeks, or month, go through your finances and look at where your money went. Learn to work with money so that you can master money. Unless you have plans of moving into the middle of the wilderness and joining a far-out civilization that barters with fruits, nuts, and wild game, money is going to be part of your life forever. Make it a habit to learn how to use it to your advantage, instead of being defeated by it.

8.  Meet Someone New

I’m fortunate that I’ve learned this through my job, but meeting new people fuels so much inspiration that it is as worthwhile of a habit as anything else. Does someone have a blog you read regularly? Shoot them an email. Is there a local business owner you’d like to learn from? See if they’d be up to meet you for coffee. The more people you reach out to and meet, the more valuable you will become because of your network, but also the more inspired you will be to continue your own development. It will also help put things in perspective whenever you are down and feeling like you’re not getting anywhere. You’ll meet someone new and realize that you aren’t alone, and you are getting somewhere, it just takes time.

9.  Indulge and Explore

Part of life is pleasure. No matter how important discipline is, there comes a tipping point when discipline is no longer productive and you start to become too rigid to find your flow. You are not a monk. Go outside your comfort zone and indulge a little, and with it, explore someone or something new. Ask someone out. Go to a coffee shop on the outskirts of the city. Check out that new museum exhibit you’ve been seeing ads for. Eat so much cheesecake that you fall asleep at the restaurant table. Sit by the lake with your feet dangling off the pier, skimming in the water. These little moments are so easy to ignore, especially if you are a goal driven person. But they are the moments you remember the most, and they fuel the emotion inside you to be happier, to live deeply, and to create something of true, emotional value with your life.

10.  Journal Before Bed

This has been a habit of mine ever since I was a little kid, and I believe it is the reason why I love writing so much. Every night before bed, I take a moment to write in my journal. Sometimes I write about what I learned that day. Sometimes I write about what I hope to do the next day. Sometimes I write poems, sometimes I write songs, sometimes I write down all the things that are bothering me and then I write out how I can change them. But no matter what, I write something. And I write from the heart. It helps me remember that life is just a story, we are the main character, and if I want tomorrow to be different then I simply have to play the part.

Bonus 11.  Sleep

This should go without saying, but sleep is an important habit. It’s ok to have those 4 hour nights every once in a while–usually it’s a girl or an MMORPG release to blame. But in general, getting 7-ish hours of sleep a night will do you good.

The Gift of Happiness

“The secret to happiness is not in the destination, but in the journey.” Though this is a simple and recognizable phrase with a powerful message, it confines one of the hardest meanings to ever be practiced in life. We’ve been conditioned from an early age to do the exact opposite, to focus 100 percent on the goals and ending results, instead of paying attention to the journey on how we get there. Thus it’s no surprise that people spend a great part of their lives looking for that fountain of peace and joy in all the wrong places. Nevertheless, I can assure you through my own experiences, that you don’t have to achieve your goals or challenges in order to be happy. You can choose to be happy at any moment and any time, even right now, and feel once again all those wonderful sensations that this emotion brings to your soul. But just like learning how to be happy, you must be careful since this journey has two ways and you may easily feel the exact opposite, unhappiness.

Let me give you an example. Notice how meditating the very meaning of these words or remembering either positive or negative experiences in your life, can instantly make you feel the sensation of happiness or unhappiness. As you can see by doing this exercise, it doesn’t matter the things you have in life, how big your house may be, the car you have, the clothes you wear or even having your ideal family; what matter is the state in which your mind is set and where you want to focus all your thoughts in order to change you mood.

In my case, through time and experiencing difficult life challenges, I understood that in the end there is nothing and no one who can make me happy other than me. Though it’s hard to admit, no matter how much people may want to help, not even our parents, children, brothers, lovers or friends, no one can change our attitude and emotions for us. They can give you their love and stand by your side during difficult times, but they won’t be able to make you feel better or worse, not without your hearts internal consent first. How many times have you wished to have the gift of being able to make a difference in someone’s life? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to bring joy to those who need it? But nevertheless, life is a mystery and even though we may not have the power to make other people happy, we do have it when it comes to oneself. Nobody other than you can make that difficult transformation of going from feeling unhappy to being happy. You can’t just go out looking for happiness, or buy it, or borrow it out of nowhere, because you will never find it anywhere outside yourself. You will only be able to feel it’s magic, it’s light and it’s energy when that happiness is the result of the attitude you have towards life, towards the purpose to which you do things, and the way you carry yourself every day.

Happiness is the result of all of your impressions, your experiences, and your actions from the moment you wake up, to the moment you go to sleep. Happiness is a boomerang effect of your lifestyle, where your thoughts, your energy and your actions are all synchronized and act as one. This wonderful sensation that gives your life meaning and abundance, comes and goes along the days and the years, just like the waves of the ocean. Sometimes we feel happy for long periods of time; other times it can simply be for an instant. The only way I know how to keep it alive for the longest time is by recognizing that life is a gift and we must be thankful and enjoy it with all of our senses to the fullest. Happiness doesn’t know time, agendas, nor goals. To you, a human being, happiness is something very personal and when you connect with your essence, your wishes and your purpose in life, you will only then feel the light shine through you and fill you with that beautiful sensation of euphoria, saturation and joy that intoxicates you with love and gives life a new meaning.

To find your connection with happiness once again, my recommendation is to first take time to find out your reasons and motivations to become happy. Everyone has different reasons and when you find out which ones are yours, the result is a miracle if you have the courage to walk your path. You have to be faithful to those reasons and not to others. Second, and this is the hardest part to overcome, is to conquer the three main enemies of happiness: ego, negative thoughts and fears.

1. The first enemy of happiness is the famous “EGO,” that makes you believe that the more things you have, the more money, more clothes and more recognition from others, the better you will feel.

2. The second great enemy of happiness are your own negative thoughts and guilt that limit you to believe in your potential, making you feel just the opposite, unhappy.

3. And the third great enemy is your fears and insecurities that paralyze you in life and convince you through a thousand excuses why you cannot achieve your dreams.

To conquer these enemies, you must choose to face them no matter what. Unfortunately, facing the truth can be hard and difficult. In order to expose or unmask ego, fear, excuses and negative thoughts on life, you will need valor, strength, discipline and determination. Never lose sight of your motives to be happy, for those are the reasons that give meaning and purpose to your life. Once you choose the first step to beat the shadows within your mind, you start to feel an inner strength that motivates you to keep moving forward, conquering new challenges and discovering your real potential. That is how it will be, step by step, and day by day, choosing to make the best decisions, taking responsibility for your actions, raising your consciousness, and taking control of your destiny is how you begin to feel, barely noticing it, that something wonderful has taken hold of your life again, Happiness.

Travel Tales Collections: Toilet Stories

Travel Tales Collections: Toilet Stories


Travel Tales Collection, Toilet Stories, No. 8, March 2015, is part of Michael Brein’s Collections travel tales series and contains among the best travel stories from Michael’s huge collection of travel tales that he has gathered in interviews with nearly 1,750 world travelers and adventurers during his four decades of travel to more than 125 countries throughout the world. Travel Tales Collections are groups of very interesting similar travel stories of a kind on a variety of very specific travel subjects, themes, or countries, such as close calls, great escapes, pickpocketing, scams, safety and security in travel, Paris, Morocco, Mexico, and so on. Eventually, several hundred Collections on all sorts of specific travel subjects, themes, and countries will be available on all the major eReaders. In the previous issue of Travel Tales Collections, No 7 Feb 2015, I included a selection of food and drink experiences that you can have in your travels. Therefore, it is only fitting, after covering food and drink travel stories, that we now turn our attention to what inevitably comes next or later, namely, the subject of toilets in travel. After all, toilet experiences are an unfortunate but essential aspect of living that, like it or no, we all must come to terms with, whether on the home front or in strange exotic foreign lands. Being often beset with culture shock issues almost at every turn, especially in third-world countries, the necessity of dealing with toilets: where to find them, what to do about them, and how to use them even, elicits from many travelers nothing less than abject terror. Thus, for instance, when ‘nature calls,’ and you have barely a clue as to what to do about it or where to go. well, for many, it is in the least, horribly anxiety-provoking, and for others nothing less than horrifying and debilitating. For, in the best of all possible worlds-namely, in your home-where you have your bathroom all set up just as you like it, with an ample su

Unions Plot Major Push After Landmark Labor Ruling

By Nathan Layne and Mica Rosenberg

Aug 28 (Reuters) – U.S. union leaders said on Friday that a landmark U.S. labor board ruling on companies’ obligations toward contract and franchise workers would help them organize manufacturers and e-commerce companies as well as fast food chains.

On Thursday the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled the owner of a California recycling plant was a “joint employer” with the contractor that hired workers at the plant, essentially forcing both to bargain with the union together or risk violating U.S. labor law.

Business groups, arguing that the ruling could lead to higher costs and hurt the economy, are pushing the Republican-led Congress to overturn it, in part it because the company named in the decision – Browning-Ferris – cannot challenge it in a federal court without overcoming a number of procedural hurdles.

Unions see the decision as a breakthrough not just in efforts to help employees organizes at franchisees of McDonald’s Corp and other chains but also as a tool to counter the proliferation of subcontracting in other industries in which workers are one or two steps removed from the companies indirectly controlling them.

 Manufacturers including auto workers, food processors, steelmakers and aerospace companies are potential targets for union campaigns, said Elizabeth Bunn, director of the AFL-CIO’s organizing department, noting that plant workers are often not directly employed by the parent firm.

“You literally can walk into almost any non-union manufacturing plant in the United States and you’ll see workers working on a line and not be able to distinguish who is temp from an agency and who is a direct employee of the company,” she said.

Big labor has focused much of its resources over the past few years on pushing for higher wages in the fast-food industry, and the Browning-Ferris ruling could have implications for an ongoing NLRB case seeking to hold McDonald accountable as a “joint employer” for alleged violations at franchisees.

‘GAME-CHANGER’

But union organizers see Thursday’s ruling as paving the way for gains across a range of industries given the widespread use of subcontracting by the manufacturing and service sectors to lower costs.

“It’s certainly a game changer,” said Teague Paterson, a partner at Beeson Tayer & Bodine, a law firm representing the union in the NLRB case. “Unions and workers have been frustrated by these triangulated relations that the board condoned in the past. It certainly opens the door to more organizing.”

 

 

Rand Wilson, a veteran organizer and a communications and policy director at a Massachusetts chapter of the Services Employees International Union, said he saw potential in warehousing, cleaning services and health care.

Another segment widely cited by organizers and labor experts is the warehouses of companies like Amazon.com Inc, Wal-Mart Stores Inc and Google Inc, which are often filled with workers from staffing agencies or contract firms.

The Teamsters union recently won an election to represent warehouse and shipping workers at Google Express, the technology giant’s shopping delivery service. The workers are employed through staffing firm Adecco.

Rome Aloise, president of the Teamsters in Northern California, said the Browning-Ferris ruling means Google will now have to be part of the discussions about working conditions with the union and the contractor.

“This is a classic case. We won and are going into negotiations and now Google will have to come to the table.”

It was a local branch of the Teamsters that originally brought the complaint about a union election at the Browning-Ferris recycling plant to the labor relations board, and the union has been active in organizing truck drivers and warehouse workers at delivery companies and tech firms.

Amazon, Google and Adecco were not immediately available for comment. Wal-Mart spokesman Brian Nick said the company was still reviewing the decision but has concerns.

TOUGH CHALLENGE

Challenging the ruling in court will not be easy, opponents say, because a court could only take up the case if closely-held Browning-Ferris refuses to negotiate with the workers’ union. “This will not be resolved quickly,” said Browning-Ferris’s attorney Stuart Newman. He declined to specifically comment on the company’s next legal steps.

Trade groups have little to no legal recourse, since they were not the subject of the NLRB’s ruling.

“The litigation strategy is somewhere between challenging and nonexistent, and of course the NLRB knows that,” said Michael Layman, a vice-president at the International Franchise Association on Friday.

Instead, the IFA and other groups said they would focus their efforts on Congress, which could write its own definition of employer responsibility for contract workers into law or pass a resolution blocking use of the new NLRB standard.

The Republican chairmen of congressional committees with oversight of labor issues, Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Rep. John Kline of Minnesota, both pledged to introduce legislation that would roll back the decision.

But any bill targeting Browning-Ferris would join other Republican measures aimed at reversing NLRB decisions that have yet to become law, and would likely face a veto as long as a Democrat is in the Oval Office, said Walter Olson, a senior fellow who tracks labor law at the libertarian Cato Institute.

“The politics are such that, even though Republicans have strong majorities in both houses of Congress, the NLRB is considered enough of a party-line issue that a bill would get a presidential veto,” Olson said.

Looking for Your Purpose? Look No Farther!

“Everyone has a purpose in life … a unique gift or special talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals.” — Dr. Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

Have you ever contemplated your purpose in life? For some of us even the thought of it can seem daunting because it may drag us out of our comfort zone. However, to earnestly do so will open the portals to your highest self in a manner may alter your understanding of many things; it could well change your reason for being alive. In Hinduism the quest to fulfill one’s purpose might be thought of as following your Dharma. To follow your Dharma isn’t so much achieved just by “what” you do but, equally, the level of awareness in which you do it. For me personally this where the rubber really meets the road on this journey called conscious living; it lays the foundation for living a spiritually grounded life because it requires that we make a fundamental change in how we see life and the role in which we have each come to play. Dr. Deepak Chopra suggests that our purpose for being will be found automatically when we follow our Dharma — by fully demonstrating our ability to embody these three components:

  • Seek our higher self through spiritual practice, which lies beyond our ego.

  • Discover our unique talents and enjoy using them.
  • Ask ourselves how can we best serve humanity by utilizing our unique talents.

To achieve these three things is a high calling for most of us because it requires us to transcend our own sense of self-importance. The interesting thing about the human condition is that it doesn’t normally pay much homage to the idea that we have each come here to give something vitally important to the world. The quintessential question is, why do we miss this fact? The gravitational pull of the egoic-self is powerful; it’s all about taking care of its own needs, not other people’s needs. This is because as a culture we are primarily consumer based in our orientation of how life “works.” The consumer mind uses and depletes; it doesn’t add to anything. (If you need proof just look at how the natural resources on this planet are being mindlessly “used.”) The concept of following our Dharma, or having a purpose in life that serves others, is difficult for many people to wrap their arms around because they have a hard time believing they could ever have a talent or gift “worth sharing” with their family of the earth. Perhaps that’s because, to a large degree, our culture has a deep sense of shame running through it, and shame is about “not being enough” which leads to “not having enough” to share.

Out of this sense of “not enough” the average human being is far more attuned to being served — or given to — rather than giving to, or serving others; the mindset is, “It’s hard to give from an empty bucket.” The truth is one’s bucket is never empty because we all have something to share! As the awareness of this mindset becomes more obvious to us we can begin to evolve consciously. As a result we enter into conscious living awakened to the reality that we are not merely human beings who have been born to be consumers or takers; we are spiritual beings bringing great and unique gifts to those who are still in need of assistance on their journey. There are any number of ways this can happen: The unique talents and gifts we have don’t necessarily have to be found in a career. Perhaps it means being the best parent, or gardener, or friend, or hugger on the planet; perhaps even being mindful enough on our walks to take time to stop and pick up a piece of trash, or broken glass or nail that may harm another. Maybe it means volunteering at our spiritual community or a local nonprofit that serves the greater community. This puts a whole other spin on the meaning and purpose of life, doesn’t it? From a spiritual perspective many believe that God’s presence lies at the center and circumference of all that is. This is another way of saying that every human being, in some regard, is a reflection of the Divine (whether they know it or not). Logically then, when we are called to serve others by using our unique gifts and talents, we can know that we are also serving God.

What Dharma (or purpose) boils down to is this: You and I have come here on a “mission” to express life in a manner that leaves the planet a better place than it was when we got here, and following our Dharma — our highest life purpose — is how we do that. The good news is, because we are all one human family, as we share our gifts and talents with others we’ll enjoy the benefit of creating a joyful, meaningful, productive life for ourselves; a purpose-filled life — one that is truly worth living… and that is a beautiful thing!

3 Reasons You Stay Stuck in a Job You Hate Instead of Pursuing Your Dream

Are you doing work you love? If not, what’s stopping you? If you are like the majority of people, you are probably doing work that pays your bills but that you don’t have a passion for. Even if you are working in the field of your college major, you have likely changed and gained more life experiences, new interests, and are not the same person you were when you chose your career path. That’s okay and far more common than you may imagine. In fact, most people are unsatisfied with their jobs.

According to Gallup, there are twice as many people who dislike their jobs as there are people who love their jobs. As a matter of fact, only 13 percent of all the people studied are happy with their jobs; 63 percent are not engaged in their work and simply go through the motions day in day out. And there are 24 percent who actually hate their jobs. These studies are alarming, but true.

So, why are people resigned to stay unhappy in a job they hate instead of doing work that feeds them and that they are passionate about? It boils down to three main reasons.

1. Fear — that four-letter word that has so many people living a mediocre, passionless life. Fear can be all-encompassing, especially when it means change is involved. So, what are we afraid of?

Fear of failure. This is what I call the “what if” fear. What if I try and do something I am passionate about and fail — what will people think, and what will it say about me? What if I don’t make any money, go bankrupt, lose my house, and end up on the street? We are so afraid to step out because we are worried about failing. It’s been said that Edison failed 1,000 times before he succeeded in creating the lightbulb. Had he been afraid of failure, we may still be living in the dark. Success is never guaranteed, but failure is certain if you fail to try.

Fear of success. At first thought, this may seem illogical because isn’t success what we all want? The answer is no. Many people hold this deep seated fear. They fear that if they are successful, they can no longer be the same person they are today, and that they will have to change. Or, deep down they don’t feel worthy of success. Some feel that if they do achieve success, they may be unable to maintain it, so there is no use in trying. And, there are those who think being successful will take up too much time and energy. Here’s something to consider — isn’t doing work you don’t like already taking up massive amounts of your precious time and energy?

Fear of the unknown. That comfort zone of ours can be quite a motivator to stay where we are. But when we live in that space, we do not expand, grow, learn, or experience all that life has to offer. This is living a life of muted mediocrity, and who wants to live like that? When I worked as a hospice social worker, I had the privilege of being able to experience with people their final days and weeks. I found that one of the top regrets expressed by my dying patients was that they wished they had not been so afraid to take risks along the way, realizing that they could have lived fuller lives if they had not lived so cautiously and played it safe. Who wants to get to the end of their life with regrets of not having lived life to the fullest? Doing just one thing each day to move out of our comfort zone can expand that comfort zone dramatically and make the unknown less scary.

2. Lack of clarity. This can keep people stuck for years. If you are waiting to wake up one day knowing exactly what you want to be when you grow up, you could be waiting forever. Please do not wait for clarity to just show up. Clarity comes from within, and each of us is responsible for creating our own. There are many exercises and techniques that can help you in getting clearer, but you have to be engaged and do the work required to successfully achieve clarity. It may also take exploring different options to see what fits for you. You may even fail a few times, but it will bring you that much closer to figuring out what work you would love. In essence, clarity is truly an inside job.

3. Not knowing how to make it happen. Suppose you know what you would love to do but just can’t figure out how to make it happen. The first step is to set the intention that no matter what, you will make it happen. Once you do this, you have already done half of the work. Your unwavering decision to find a way will begin to overshadow any doubts you have. When you set the intention to do the work you love, the right people and circumstances just start to show up. When you make your mind up, you cannot help but to start attracting what you need to move forward. To keep the momentum, many people find it helpful to create a vision board of exactly what they want their dream job to look like and focus on the outcome daily, expecting results to happen. In the meanwhile, start taking action toward your dream. Take a small step each day. You will find that those small steps start to add up, and before you realize it, your goal of doing work you love is no longer a dream, but a blossoming reality.

What is keeping you from pursuing your dream? Is it fear, lack of clarity, or not knowing how to make it happen? What can you do to push past that barrier and create work that gives you a strong sense of purpose, passion, and fulfillment?

Voices without Votes: Women and Politics in Antebellum New England

Voices without Votes: Women and Politics in Antebellum New England


Based on meticulous and original archival research, this study definitively shows that despite contemporary “woman’s sphere” prescriptions advising them to stay out of public affairs, a number of New England women in the antebellum era amply demonstrated political consciousness and proffered partisan opinions with little social reprobation for having overstepped their “proper” role. Voices without Votes rescues the “voices” of these women who, though barred from voting, nevertheless thought and acted in a deeply political manner. This long-awaited volume offers a startling counter to the traditional view that antebellum politics was solely a man’s world.
