GOP Climate Denier To Celebrate Park Service Centennial Amid Melting Glaciers http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32418 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32418#comments Thu, 25 Aug 2016 06:43:37 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32418

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Two Keys Why You Don’t Receive & How to Shift It! http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32415 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32415#comments Thu, 25 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32415 Have you ever wondered why you struggle receiving the things you want? I see this a lot in my coaching practice and with my students. In fact, I would say that receiving is one of the key issues most people face. I would like to share with you some thoughts that might help you break out of this painful cycle.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You are the one who determines whether you receive.


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

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

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

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

Here are three simple steps to open up to receive:

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

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

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

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

Receiving is an act of service.

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

Afternoon Slump Got You Down? There’s A Nap For That http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32414 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32414#comments Thu, 25 Aug 2016 06:43:07 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32414 There’s a reason you, like clockwork, feel sluggish when 3 p.m. rolls around each day. Scientists call it the circadian dip, and it happens because our bodies regulate periods of wakefulness and sleepiness, the latter of which peaks for most adults during the nighttime hours of 2 and 4 a.m., and the daytime hours of 1 and 3 p.m.

The good news? There’s an easy solution. We’ve partnered with Sleep Number to get to the bottom of the #PowerOfSleep. Check out the video below to learn more.

Just like diet and exercise, sleep is unique to each person and important for optimal health. Sleep Number® beds adjust on each side to your ideal level of firmness, comfort and support — your Sleep Number® setting. And when you add SleepIQ® technology you’ll know what to adjust for your best possible sleep.

I Will Still Love My Husband If He Votes For Donald Trump http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32410 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32410#comments Wed, 24 Aug 2016 06:43:37 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32410 Almost 18 years ago I was a liberal, vegetarian, bell-bottom-wearing college sophomore when I met my husband — a young Republican Alex P. Keaton-type if Keaton was tall, blonde and a deer hunter. Election night 2000 stands out as an almost disastrous night in our relationship as we sat together, watching the election night returns and alternately fluctuating between elation and despair throughout the night as the outcome of the election swung back and forth.

Having learned our lesson, in the three subsequent elections we each calmly watch returns in different rooms of our home. We disclose campaign contributions to each other, always with the possibility of our joint bank account being used to fund two opposing campaigns. We never put out campaign signs (except for the occasional support of the Detroit Zoo) because, as we joke, we do not need to let the whole neighborhood in on our dysfunction. He has suggested more than once that we just stop voting so we do not spend time waiting in line just to cancel each other out, but as I get immense joy out of the experience of voting he begrudgingly shows up at the polls.

With the disclaimer that our state does not have registration by party affiliation and, even if it did, I am not sure either of us would choose to affiliation, we are an interparty marriage. Only nine percent of married couples are Republican-Democrat. But even in these divisive times, with rhetoric flying and a news cycle that seems to be accelerating faster than a boulder falling of a cliff, I love my husband and respect his right to cast his vote even if he decides to cast that vote for Donald Trump.

Suffice to say, #imwithher. But equally as importantly, I am against him. Since the reasons to be against Donald Trump have filled voluminous pages of this blog and elsewhere, I will summarize that my passion in life is improving Muslim-Jewish relations and Trump is antithetical to my understanding of my faith, my values and what it means to be an American. I think he is dangerous and bad for America. There are few superlatives that I would hesitate to use when talking about the destructiveness of Trump’s candidacy. But I will not extend these superlatives to those who vote for Trump and — in the end — I might be married to one.

This election season, my friends, my colleagues, even my mother have come up to me with the whispered question, “Is your husband going to vote for Donald Trump?” The truthful answer: I don’t know and I am not sure if he does either. Like many conservatives, he appears to be struggling between voting for a Republican candidate that does not represent his conservative political philosophies, voting for a third party candidate knowing that support may put a Democrat in the White House for another four years or just staying home, not voting and watching a rerun of South Park instead of the election returns.

When I admit that it is a possibility — even a probability — that my husband will vote for Trump, there is often a gasp or a head shake or a disapproving look followed by the sentiment that “I could never be married to someone that would vote for that man.” And while I fully grasp revulsion at Trump’s candidacy, it strikes me that when I pledged to love my husband in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer or all that other stuff, there was not an exception for the day there was a Republican candidate that I found really repulsive.

While it is beyond my abilities to explain why any person would vote for Trump, I recall back to a humiliating memory in my own life. In 2004, just weeks before the election, I was down in South Carolina at a friend’s wedding. Afterwards, several of us were knocking back yet a few more cocktails and I got involved in a political conversation with a friend’s boyfriend who belonged to a category of people that my closed-minded liberal self did not know existed – Gay Republicans.

I remember pressing him at length about his Republican identification. I was appalled that he could be faithful to a political party that rejected his civil rights. I questioned him not out of curiosity, but out of indignation and a false moral superiority that allowed me to weigh his conflicting values better than he could. Whether fuelled by this indignation or the cocktails, I kept going long passed the point where decency or common sense would have led me to change the topic.

In reality, the notion of thinking that my friend’s boyfriend was some kind of anomaly was simply uneducated and I look back on my actions with a certain amount of shame. For many people, aspects of their political philosophies, cultural beliefs and identity may clash in a way that make choosing a candidate difficult. In 2004, 23 percent of the LGBT population voted for President Bush. This year, a poll showed that 11 percent of Muslims voted for Trump in the primaries and 14 percent of Hispanics may vote for Trump in the general election.

People are complicated and the factors that lead us to cast a vote are even more so. The coverage seems to place us neatly in boxes by race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, education but these are just statistics. Statistics are the business of pollsters, the lifeblood of campaigns and the source of a thousand news stories. But it is our life experience and beliefs and identity the mingle within us and help us determine which candidate to support. Just because someone comes to a different conclusion than us does not mean that there is nothing of value in that person and nothing we could have in common. In and of itself, it just means that we are casting votes for different candidates.

Every day, there are stories of people defriended over political views. While defriending in a social media context is easy enough, it is the defriending in real life that is more troubling. In this election cycle, rifts are placed in families and communities over support of a candidate. The rhetoric continues to increase in ways that do not serve our country — from cries of locking her up to naked statutes of a candidate in parks. While we can all fingerpoint as to what has caused this political climate, the better question for each of us is whether we have become part of the problem?

To those that cannot believe that I love my conservative husband or that I could continue to do so even if he casts a vote for Donald Trump, do you really think I should get divorced because of a presidential vote? If you believe Fivethirtyeight.com (which I always do), 44.1 percent of this country will vote for Donald Trump. If you cannot fathom being married to one of them, being friends with one of them or being related to one of them, is it time to ask whether you are a part of the problem? Instead of blaming the divisiveness solely on either the Republican candidate or some amorphous “other” out there, perhaps it is time to look inside.

There is a line in The American President, “How do you have patience for people who claim they love America, but clearly can’t stand Americans?” In context, this is intended as a dig at conservatives but it seems like a claim that can be levelled at all of us.

In the past 18 years, I have learned a great deal from my conservative husband. I have come to appreciate the economic philosophies that he holds paramount when choosing candidates. I have come to appreciate that sometimes his conservatism relies on an innate belief in the goodness of people whereas sometimes my liberalism can veer dangerously into paternalism. Our disagreements sometimes strengthen my own views by cutting away the surface argument and getting to the core of my beliefs while other times I have seen my beliefs moderate when faced with compelling argument from him.

If we cut out those in our lives based on a vote, we will slowly whittle our own world to an echo chamber where everyone around us simply parrots back what we assume to be true about the world. I have no doubt that this is easier. I imagine it would be fun to spend election day either rejoicing or mourning with the person that I love most in the world. I imagine that it would be nice to be in the same room on election day.

But even this year, even with these stakes, even with offense I take at Donald Trump’s words and actions, even when I genuinely fear for the safety of my Muslim brothers and sisters who are facing increased violence, I will not allow myself to give in and excise from my life those who balance their competing values differently than I balance mine. I believe that Donald Trump is dangerous for America, but I believe that letting Donald Trump divide us as Americans is even more dangerous. I fell in love with my husband almost 18 years ago and, whatever happens on November 8, I will still be in love with him. But I will not watch election returns in the same room as him.

Bali High http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32407 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32407#comments Wed, 24 Aug 2016 06:43:07 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32407
2016-08-23-1471979701-4140362-BaliHigh2.jpg

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

COACHING QUESTIONS

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

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

Is TMJ Disorder Costing You A Good Night’s Sleep? http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32406 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32406#comments Wed, 24 Aug 2016 06:43:07 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32406 If you are one of the estimated 40 million+ Americans who suffer each year from chronic sleep disorders or one of the additional 20 million who experience occasional sleeping problems, you know first hand how the problem can affect your quality of life. A sleep disorder can interfere with your work, your ability to drive and your participation in social activities.

Did you know that many patients who suffer from sleep disorders are also dealing with a problem directly related to disorders in their temporomandibular joint (TMJ)? The TMJ is the joint that attaches your lower jaw, or mandible, to the temporal bone of your head. More precisely, it is where the lower jaw fits into the skull and is supported by the muscles in your face. It is the joint that allows you to chew, swallow and yawn. However, when it isn’t functioning properly it can be the root of a lot of problems.

A disorder in this important joint can cause pain and discomfort in other parts of the body and these TMJ disorder symptoms — including sleep apnea, teeth grinding and tension headaches or migraines — can impact your ability to get a good night’s sleep.

Experts estimate that more than 44 million Americans have one of the several variants of TMJ disorder, or TMD, with women more prone to the condition than men. Pain when chewing is a common symptom, as are other warning signs including limited movement of the jaw or a locking sensation, ringing in the ears, jaw clicking and grating or popping of the jaw joint. These symptoms are often a result of muscle tension and misalignment in the jaw. Although minor symptoms may be relieved with a little rest, hot and cold packs, a soft diet, TMJ massage and/or jaw exercises, persistent symptoms can lead to chronic problems that disrupt your sleep and can become more difficult to treat.

2016-08-23-1471911816-5123663-headache.png

Sleep Apnea

We have all seen the images of tools used to manage sleep apnea that require sufferers to sleep with a CPAP mask, making them look like a super villain or scuba diver. However, obstructive sleep apnea is a potentially serious condition. Sufferers experience obstructed airflow and stop breathing repeatedly during sleep, sometimes for a minute or even longer. This may happen from five times an hour to more than 100 in severe cases. The body is damaged by only 5 of these episodes an hour, and as we learn more, it appears that even minor episodes can cause chronic damage.

When breathing stops, the brain reacts to the situation by producing a rush of adrenalin which in turn quickens the heartbeat. Muscles in the chest then work to resume airflow and the person gasps for a breath and falls back asleep. This scenario is then repeated multiple times during the same night while the person never realizes what is occurring. That’s because they never really “wake up” but only experience a short pause in sleep. This pause destroys the normal sleep cycle cascade which is critically important to health and brain function.

More and more studies are showing a connection between TMD and sleep disturbances. In many sleep apnea cases, a misaligned jaw joint or TMJD, is actually to blame. This is because the tongue’s position is impacted by the alignment of the upper and lower teeth. When the teeth are misaligned, the tongue can block the airway as you sleep. This problem with the jaw alignment or malocclusion can cause a person to wake up frequently throughout the night.

Untreated sleep apnea causes snoring and can lead to much more serious health issues such as high blood pressure and heart disease. In addition, people with sleep apnea do not get the rest they need because, as a preventative reaction, their brains keep them from falling into a deep sleep mode.

Bruxism

Another symptom of TMD is bruxism, commonly called teeth grinding. A misalignment of the jaw can cause you to unconsciously grind or clench your teeth together.

Bruxism causes significant damage to your teeth and is something that is easily corrected with proper physiologic care. You would be surprised at how forcefully we can clench our teeth. As we are waking, the pressure when clamping the teeth together can reach about 200 pounds per square inch. However, when we are asleep, that force can reach more than 700 pounds per square inch!

Because of this force, people with severe bruxism can break their dental fillings and/or cause the outer layers of their tooth enamel to wear away, exposing the highly sensitive dentin. Additionally, this extreme jaw muscle tension can result in complications that include other TMJ disorder symptoms like lockjaw and tension headaches.

Night Headaches

When the bite and the lower jaw are misaligned, muscles are strained which can result in head pain that can mimic a migraine. This pain can be around the forehead, on the back of the head or radiating down the neck.

The same obstructive breathing that causes sleep apnea also can cause nighttime or hypertensive headaches. To put it simply, lack of oxygen can trigger a painful headache.

Many people turn to over-the-counter pain medication for headaches rather than exploring the root cause of the pain. Common signs that a headache is related to a TMJ disorder include:

● A clicking or popping sound emanating from the jaw
● A bite that feels off or does not close properly
● Complaints of snoring at night from your spouse or family
● Forward head posture

Researchers from the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine found that headaches related to TMJ dysfunction are frequently misdiagnosed as tension headaches. In a study of 583 patients with frequent headaches, 82 percent of female cases and 17 percent of male cases had symptoms associated with TMD.

Finding Relief

If you think TMD could be causing your sleep problems, here are some tips you can try at home:

● Gently stretch your neck throughout the day
● Improve your posture
● Avoid chewing gum
● Gently massage your jaw muscles
● Commit to a soft diet
● Try to use other home remedies to lessen the severity of a TMD flare up
● Learn to combat stress with exercise or meditation. (Stress can exacerbate pain.)
● Move the jaw gently from side to side 10 times and then allow it to rest for a minute. Do this for 5 sets a few times a day. This will help to stretch the muscles of mastication.

Although the exercises above may help, if the system is not physiologically correct, the best advice is to get it corrected. The headaches can start as a nuisance but can eventually become incapacitating.

In my experience as a educator for TMJ dentists and clinical director at LVI Global, up to 85% of TMJ disorder symptoms can be resolved without prescription drugs or surgery. Instead, we return the jaw muscles to their natural place of physiologic rest which allows the system to function correctly. Treatment through neuromuscular dentistry strives to reduce or resolve symptoms by focusing on fixing the muscles that support the bite. The result is a dramatic lessening of muscle pain and in many cases, a better night’s sleep.

GOP Congressional Hopeful Dan Bongino Launches Profanity-Laced Tirade Against Politico Reporter http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32403 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32403#comments Tue, 23 Aug 2016 06:43:43 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32403

A Republican candidate for Congress in Florida launched a profanity-laced tirade at a Politico reporter during a recorded interview over the weekend.

(NOTE: The audio above, and description below, contains profanity.)

“You’re a real disgusting piece of shit,” Dan Bongino, a former Secret Service agent who’s in a primary race for a district in southwest Florida, told Politico’s Marc Caputo on Sunday.

The dispute erupted after Bongino objected to a report in the Naples Daily News that claimed most of his campaign donations came from outside the district. He told Caputo it was a “wholly inaccurate story,” and after several minutes of trying to explain why, the two got testy with each other

Bongino seemed to say that many of the contributors within his district were small donors and didn’t have to be disclosed, although his exact words were difficult to understand as the two repeatedly spoke over each other. Then, Caputo said, “Let me ask the questions ― I’ll handle the questions and you handle the answers.” 

That set Bongino off. 

You don’t give me orders, you piece of shit, you understand?” he yelled. “You piece of shit.” 

They also sparred over Bongino’s two failed campaigns ― running unsuccessfully for both the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate ― in Maryland before moving to Florida.

“Marc, I am going to humiliate you from this point,” Bongino promised. “I’m going to make you an example. You will regret the day we had this conversation.”

As he lost his temper, Caputo goaded him, calling Bongino a “professional political candidate who loses.” 

“Hey, shut the fuck up,” Bongino yelled back. “Go fuck yourself, you piece of shit.”

Shortly after the tirade, Bongino hopped online and went after Caputo for his use of the word “dude.” 

I can be a little salty on Twitter,” Bongino said in a Facebook video. “But I’m not a reporter and I don’t call people ‘dude’ when I want to comment.” 

Bongino also said he didn’t see Caputo’s declaration on Twitter that he would record the conversation because he had blocked the reporter. 

The Naples Daily News also reported that Bongino recently got into an argument at a campaign event that was so heated the organizers had to intervene

Bongino’s primary is next week, where he will face off against two other Republicans for the seat currently held by GOP Rep. Curt Clawson, who is not seeking reelection. Robert Neeld is the only Democrat running in a district Ballotpedia calls “safely Republican.”

What No One Told Me About Following My Passion http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32400 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32400#comments Tue, 23 Aug 2016 06:43:10 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32400 Like much of my generation in America, I don’t have to worry about where my next meal will come from. I don’t have to worry about how I’ll get to work. I don’t have to worry about a safe, dry place to sleep.

So I worry about something else, with which much less of the world has the luxury of preoccupation: purpose. Some spend their days searching for food; I spend my life hunting meaning–full, but unsatisfied.

Most millennials’ basic needs have been met–a prerequisite for fulfilling our greatest potential. If we don’t make our lives meaningful, we will have dishonored and squandered our opportunity. Perhaps this responsibility explains our fixation with purpose.

We know what we want. The question is: how do we find it?

Hoping that international travel and novel experiences would infuse my life with meaning, I moved to Canada when I graduated college. There I learned, as I conclude in my essay The Myth of Wanderlust, “you can’t drive to purpose.”

So I returned home and pursued my lifelong passion of writing. For the last two years, I’ve followed a self-authored, step-by-step plan to successfully discovering, integrating and making money from my passions. A marketing position, an editing role and six months of self-employment later, I realized you can’t write to purpose, either.

Passion, I’ve learned, does not equal purpose.

Why?

Here’s a synopsis of the 8000 words I initially spewed on this question:

Passion, the way many millennials have come to define it, is self-oriented. Passion is “a strong inclination toward a self-defining activity that one loves, values, and in which one invests a substantial amount of time and energy,” explains one study published in Self and Identity.

Purpose, on the other hand, is other-oriented. One Stanford study found that individuals with meaning mindsets “seek connections, give to others, and orient themselves to a larger purpose.”

Modern passion is pleasure-oriented. One influential study on passion defines it as “an autonomous internalization that leads individuals to choose to engage in the activity that they like.” In other words, passion’s answer to “Why are you doing this?” is “Because I like it.”

But meaningfulness, sums the Stanford study, sometimes involves “feeling bad”.

Passion is short-term. Though we tend to assume it’s lifelong, passion changes more than we anticipate because we change more than we anticipate. As Terri Trespicio observes in her TEDx Talk, “Passion is not a plan. Passion is a feeling, and feelings change.”

Purpose is hardy. Gritty individuals, explains one study, prioritize long-term goals. This long-term perspective, another study notes, helps give “more weight to meaning than pleasure” and solidifies self-control.

I don’t regret following my passion. In fact, I still endorse my strategy. Passions help us understand who we are and what we want. They bring vitality and joy to our days. But following your passion is a deceptively slow, uncertain way to purpose.

If I could tell myself anything three years ago when I graduated college, it would probably be this:

“Follow your passion, sure. But don’t expect it to produce your purpose.”

I help 1000+ ambitious millennials find their professional purpose with a research-packed weekly newsletter. Want in? Subscribe.

A Unique Approach To Discomfort http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32399 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32399#comments Tue, 23 Aug 2016 06:43:09 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32399 “Destiny is not for comfort seekers. Destiny is for the daring and determined who are willing to endure some discomfort, delay gratification, and go where destiny leads.” ~ T.D. Jakes

“We ask God for signs, wonders and miracles, but refuse to go into circumstances where we need them.” — Christine Caine

One may believe that a happy life eschews pain and discomfort by all costs. But, in truth, life opens up to us and expands when we’re squeezed and pushed through discomfort. Our emotional constriction, which creates our discomfort, begins to soften and expand when we lean into our discomfort. Moreover, our dreams are actualized through moments of confusion, doubt, fear, and uncertainty. So, when we’re pushed into our discomfort zone, we’re better able to witness and cultivate new skills that will propel us to new heights in our spiritual, emotional, and physical evolution.

How many of us can say that we have grown and transformed the most when we are “seemingly” sailing through life? Not many of us. When things appear superficially “perfect” and aligned in our lives, what could possibly ignite us toward growth and realizing God’s deeper purpose for our lives?

However, what indubitably pushes us toward greater fulfillment and purpose in our lives is when we’re tightly squeezed and pushed through discomfort. The physical manifestation of the contrast between what we deeply desire on a soulful level to what is actually showing up in our lives, creates the emotional and spiritual dissonance for us to push through and create transformation.

Transformation is accelerated in our lives through pain and discomfort. Such that, God will use different people, events, and circumstances to show up in our lives that cause us aggravation and distress, as a catalyst for growth and inspiration. Personally, I created a life that I dreamed of, living on a paradise island as a Life & Spiritual Coach & Teacher, not by coasting through life and feeling on top of the world. No. My life was radically changed when I hit my lowest point. When my pain and suffering had become enough.

Through pain and suffering, my heart opened up to greater transparency for God’s light to shine through and heal, motivate, and push me at deeper levels. Surely, the pressure was strong and tightening, but the more pressure I experienced, the harder I fought. Had I experienced continued success selling real estate in New York City, perhaps with money flowing in easily and effortlessly, and joy living in a city that stole my heart 19 years ago, I would not be living the life of my dreams right now. I’d still be living a life that was content and good, but truthfully, mediocre in the eyes of God. But, God doesn’t want GOOD ENOUGH for our lives, he wants GREAT!

So where is discomfort showing up in your life? Is it in a relationship? A job? Your living circumstances? Your finances? Your health? Or a lack of balance in your life? Consider each difficulty as a message that God has something better and more meaningful for your life. As we release the need to pity ourselves in difficult times and rather use discomfort as the catalyst toward change, we create an opportunity for greater richness and joy in our lives. Discomfort and pressure will always show up. To the extent that, although my life is greater than it’s ever been, there are newer and completely different experiences of discomfort that appear. But, with greater awareness I now recognize that my discomfort shows me that there’s still more for me to see and do in my life. This inspires me to work harder and explore my path with greater curiosity and determination.

Today, find peace with your discomfort. Embrace the stickiness. Ask for its lessons and guidance. Trust that your uneasiness is the vehicle to catapult you to places you’ve never been before. Use discomfort to your advantage in creating a life you dream of.

Joint U.S.-South Korean Drills Begin Despite North Korean Threats http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32395 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32395#comments Mon, 22 Aug 2016 06:43:43 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32395

SEOUL (Reuters) – The United States and South Korea kicked off annual military exercises on Monday, prompting warnings of retaliation from the North, as already-heightened tension on the peninsula has been inflamed by the defection of a Pyongyang diplomat.

North Korea has become further isolated after a January nuclear test, its fourth, and the launch of a long-range rocket in February brought tightened U.N. Security Council sanctions that Pyongyang defied with several ballistic missile launches.

About 25,000 U.S. troops are joining in the Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercise, which runs until Sept 2. The U.S.-led U.N. Command Military Armistice Commission said it notified the North Korean army the exercises were “non-provocative” in nature.

The North calls the exercises preparations for invasion, and early on Monday threatened a pre-emptive nuclear strike. North Korea frequently makes such threats.

“From this moment, the first-strike combined units of the Korean People’s Army keep themselves fully ready to mount a preemptive retaliatory strike at all enemy attack groups involved in Ulji Freedom Guardian,” a KPA spokesman said in a statement carried by the North’s state-run KCNA news agency.

“The nuclear warmongers should bear in mind that if they show the slightest sign of aggression, it would turn the stronghold of provocation into a heap of ashes through a Korean-style preemptive nuclear strike.”

Last week, South Korea announced that Thae Yong Ho, the North’s deputy ambassador in London, had defected and arrived in the South with his family, in an embarrassing blow to the regime of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

High-level defections pointed to cracks in the Kim regime, South Korean President Park Geun-hye said on Monday.

“Recently even North Korea’s elite group is collapsing, followed by key figures defecting to foreign countries, showing a sign of serious cracks, with chances of shaking the regime further,” she told a National Security Council meeting.

Thae’s defection followed the flight to Seoul this year of 12 waitresses from a North Korean restaurant in China.

On Monday, North Korea’s Red Cross sent a letter to its South Korean counterpart asking for the women to be sent back, saying they had been kidnapped by the South, according to KCNA. South Korea denies they were kidnapped.

North and South Korea are technically still at war because their 1950-53 conflict ended in an armistice, not a peace treaty.

These Underwater Yoga Photos Prove The Practice Is Truly Magical http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32392 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32392#comments Mon, 22 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32392 Looking for a reason to hit the yoga mat today? Take a gander at these stunning photos.

The surreal images, which were snapped by photographer Elena Kalis, feature yoga instructor Britta Jade as she masterfully executes yoga poses under water. They’re a truly majestic display of how yoga can be both athletic and a work of art.

The photos are an inspirational reminder that the practice can be one of the best ways to move your body. Research shows yoga can reduce stress and lower your risk for heart disease. It also can improve your sleep and boost your brain function. Not to mention the fact that yoga can be an excellent form of strength training, which can help maintain a healthy weight.

While not everyone can exactly run off to the crystal shores of a remote island to nail these moves, there are some added perks to taking your yoga practice to the water. Studies suggest being near the ocean can make you calmer and more creative. The sea also puts your brain in a more meditative state.

If you’ve been slacking on a yoga routine (or hesitant to try one at all), take a look at the pictures below. Then check out these healthy reasons to prioritize the practice for additional motivation.

Nirvana: achieved.

Health Official Warns Zika Could Spread Across U.S. Gulf http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32391 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32391#comments Mon, 22 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32391 Aug 21 (Reuters) – One of the top U.S. public health officials on Sunday warned that the mosquito-borne Zika virus could extend its reach across the U.S. Gulf Coast after officials last week confirmed it as active in the popular tourist destination of Miami Beach.

The possibility of transmission in Gulf States such as Louisiana and Texas will likely fuel concerns that the virus, which has been shown to cause the severe birth defect known as microcephaly, could spread across the continental United States, even though officials have played down such an outcome.

Concern has mounted since confirmation that Zika has expanded into a second region of the tourist hub of Miami-Dade County in Florida. Miami’s Wynwood arts neighborhood last month became the site of the first locally transmitted cases of Zika in the continental United States.

“It would not be surprising we would see additional cases perhaps in other Gulf Coast states,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the allergy and infectious diseases unit of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), said in an interview on Sunday morning with ABC News.

Fauci noted that record flooding this month in Louisiana – which has killed at least 13 people and damaged some 60,000 homes damaged – has boosted the likelihood Zika will spread into that state.

“There’s going to be a lot of problems getting rid of standing water” that could stymie the mosquito control efforts that are the best way to control Zika’s spread, he said.

U.S. health officials have concluded that Zika infections in pregnant women can cause microcephaly, a birth defect marked by small head size that can lead to severe developmental problems in babies. The connection between Zika and microcephaly first came to light last fall in Brazil, which has now confirmed 1,835 cases of microcephaly that it considers to be related to Zika infections in the mothers.

On Friday, Florida Governor Rick Scott confirmed that state health officials had identified five cases of Zika believed to be contracted in Miami Beach.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told pregnant women they should avoid the trendy area and suggested those especially worried about exposure might consider avoiding all of Miami-Dade County.

NIH’s Fauci on Sunday said the conditions of most of the country make it unlikely there would be a “diffuse, broad outbreak,” even though officials need to prepare for that possibility.

He compared it with diseases such as Dengue, which is endemic in certain tropical and subtropical regions of the world but rarely occurs in the continental United States. In Miami’s Wynwood area, experts have seen “substantial” knockdowns of mosquito populations.

Still, its containment is more complicated because Zika can be sexually transmitted, Fauci said.

“This is something that could hang around for a year or two,” he said.

The World Health Organization has said there is strong scientific consensus that Zika can also cause Guillain-Barre, a rare neurological syndrome that causes temporary paralysis in adults.

Trump: Pretending to be Presidential http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32388 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32388#comments Sun, 21 Aug 2016 06:43:40 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32388 Trump has again shaken up his staff. He now has had as many campaign managers as he has had wives. He previously parted ways with Corey Lewandowski, then with Paul Manafort. Now Kellyanne Conway has taken command of this “huuge” ship of state– perhaps a vessel more like the Titanic or “Ship of Fools,” rather than the “Good Ship Lollypop” image that the Trump camp is attempting to project.

Smart Republicans are jumping ship, some for political reasons and others for moral motives. My advice to Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and Reince Priebus is to get in a life boat while seats are still available– save yourself from this shipwreck.

Or is Trump really changing? Kellyanne Conway has launched a new Trump-Lite to make him look more “presidential.” Gone is the orange spray tan, make-up, or whatever Halloween substance he had on his face. Now he uses the Teleprompters that he previously ridiculed, and is out seeking big donors, something he formerly bragged he didn’t need or want.

And a couple days ago, Trump apologized (sort of), telling a crowd at a rally in North Carolina, “Sometimes, in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that, and I regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues.”

However, Trump followed that ambiguous mea culpa with “But one thing I can promise you is this: I will always tell you the truth.” Of course, that statement was itself a lie. You just can’t keep up with this guy.

In fact, in December of 2015, Pulitzer Prize winning PolitiFact named him the worst lying presidential candidate, stating they have “been documenting Trump’s statements on our Truth-O-Meter, where we’ve rated 76 percent of them Mostly False, False or Pants on Fire, out of 77 statements checked. No other politician has as many statements rated so far down on the dial.” The same month Factcheck.org named him the “King of Whoppers”

The coup de grâce of Trump playing president was Friday when he and his current Vice Presidential candidate Mike Pence went to flood ravished Louisiana, unabashedly using the flood victims to promote Trump as looking presidential. He did this even though Louisiana Governor Jon Bel Edwards didn’t want politicians showboating there. A spokesman for the Governor reportedly stated, “We welcome him to LA but not for a photo-op. Instead we hope he’ll consider volunteering or making a sizable donation to the LA Flood Relief Fund to help the victims of the storm.”

And Friday Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told ABC News, “It’s also presidential today to have him and Governor Pence going to Louisiana in a decidedly nonpolitical event, no press allowed, going to help people on the ground who are in need.”

What? “Nonpolitical?” Ha! If not political, why did Trump chastise President Obama for not yet going. “No press allowed?” How did we all see it if no press was allowed? And what did they do to help people on the ground? Trump was seen in Louisiana signing his autograph on his hats, t-shirts, and other paraphernalia– but did anyone a catch glimpse of him signing a donation check?

Trump may pretend to be presidential, but that doesn’t make him so. There’s an old saying “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.” Oink Oink.

Angels and Molecules http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32385 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32385#comments Sun, 21 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32385 The other day my wife, Ana, and I went out for a few hours. When we came back, we parked the car, entered through the downstairs garage door, came up to the first floor and into the living room. Where we saw our intrepid dog Ben, standing on the back of the living room couch, gazing out the window. Waiting.

To explain: Ana is the center of Ben’s universe, the sun around which all his planets revolve. She is his oxygen, his A to Z, his why the universe exists. He was waiting for her.

But Ben has gone deaf. He had somehow missed seeing the car’s approach, and hadn’t heard it come down the drive, or the motorized grind of the garage door opening, or our footsteps up the stairs. As far as he knew, we were still gone.

2016-08-19-1471640868-7835203-Ben2.jpg

Moments after I snapped this picture, I clapped, loud enough for him to hear, and he turned his head and saw Ana — and his little dog face broke into an ecstatic OMG, why didn’t someone tell me?! and all was right with the world.

It made me think of Beethoven.

Late in life, Beethoven was attending the premier of his ninth (and final) symphony. “Attending” is perhaps not the right word. Although he was by this time deaf as a board, he strongly felt he should be on hand to guide the musicians along in this huge and enormously challenging composition, so he stood right up there on stage, by the conductor, and gestured like crazy throughout the performance, doing his utmost to shape the right tempi and dynamics and phrasing — even though he could not hear a note.

After the last chord was sounded, the composer stood on the stage, breathing heavily, facing the orchestra. The audience, who had never heard anything like this before (nor, for that matter, had anyone on the planet), erupted into raucous, deafening applause.

The composer was oblivious. He had no idea anyone was even clapping. The mezzo-soprano soloist had to approach him (with tears in her eyes, and can you blame her?) and tug on his arm to get him to turn around and see the thunderous response his music has evoked.

This got me thinking:

What if we’re all like Ben and Beethoven?

What if we are surrounded by all the applause, but just don’t hear it? If the center of our universe, the thing we love most, has already arrived and is standing there watching us, but we just don’t know it yet?

I remember as a teenager, taking a walk one morning in my neighborhood, going blocks and blocks in my quiet suburban town, a Sunday, hardly anyone about. I’d been reading about physics and metaphysics and different thinkers’ understandings of how reality was assembled. I remember stopping, standing, and gazing out along a path down to a field.

It suddenly hit me that I was surrounded by billions, trillions, quadrillions of molecules, atoms, particles, all buzzing and humming and soaring in orbits around each other, vibrating like mad. I was a musician and student of acoustics, and I knew this basic fact of life: vibration makes noise. I was standing in the midst of the most colossal symphony imaginable. I just couldn’t hear it.

Although for those few moments, it felt as if I almost did.

There is an ancient tradition in Bali which holds that a gamelan orchestra, that most mesmerizing of human musical ensembles, doesn’t “make” its music. No, say the Balinese, that rippling stream of rhythm and melody is already happening, already going on, all around us, all the time. The job of the gamelan musicians is not to create the music, but simply to catch it, like a crystal set picking up radio waves and stepping them down to audible form.

What if we are surrounded by symphonies?

What if our ancestors, departed parents, and all those loved ones who have shuffled off before us are in fact standing right beside us, beaming with pleasure at our antics, cheering us on?

What if throngs of angels are stomping and hooting and laughing and shouting, exuberant as a sold-out Bruce Springsteen auditorium just to be there watching us, applauding our every mundane move like a chorus of thunderclaps?

You know, I think they may be.

You can almost hear them, can’t you?

Back to School Means Heavy Backpacks And Back Pain http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32384 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32384#comments Sun, 21 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32384 With school is just around the corner, children will be abandoning the playground and returning to the classroom. With an emphasis on providing a sound education for this young generation, children are given a literal “heavier” workload year after year. This has translated into more books and more accessories, which greatly contributes to the normalcy and reliance on carrying backpacks. However, despite their usefulness, backpacks can cause serious back pain if overloaded or worn improperly.

2016-08-20-1471714844-4735983-Untitled.png

To understand how heavy backpacks contribute to back pain, it’s important to look at the composition of the back. The adolescent spine is composed of 33 bones called vertebrae with discs between them that act as natural shock absorbers. When a heavy backpack is incorrectly placed over a child’s shoulders, the weight of the bag can force the child backwards. Usually, children counteract this force by arching or bending forward at the hips, causing the spine to compress unnaturally and contributing to neck, shoulder and back pain.

The best way to prevent lower back pain is to either avoid overstuffing a backpack. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, children should limit their backpack weight to between 10 and 15 percent of their body weight. Backpacks weighing more than this are too heavy to maintain a standing posture. This weight causes children to lean forward, affecting the natural curve in the lumbar and lower back regions resulting in variety of orthopaedic injuries.

Dr. Ebraheim says,
“Kids these days think backpacks are moving libraries, carrying heavier weights back and forth to school and between classes without taking breaks. The weight can cause a variety of back problems including scoliosis. This is a problem not only for the child’s health but also because back pain can interfere with the learning environment. Kids need to feel healthy during the day so they can keep up with their schoolwork injury free.”

Wearing a backing improperly can also cause back injury. Many times children will sling their backpacks over only one shoulder. This uneven distribution of weight causes the child to compensate by leaning to one side. The frequent imbalance causes muscle strain. The problem can be exacerbated if backpacks have tight or narrow straps, as they can interfere with circulation and nerves.

There are, however, some simple ways to prevent your child from developing back pain. First, it’s important to monitor the weight of children’s backpacks to ensure that they are not overloading them. Second, purchase a backpack with wide, padded straps to distribute the load over the shoulders evenly. Backpacks that have waist and additional shoulder straps may also prove beneficial in transferring the load to the hips and preventing slouching. Lastly, it’s important to concentrate the bulk of the weight closest to your child’s body in the middle of the back. This will help your child achieve better posture and balance, while preventing possible falls.

Friday Talking Points — As The Turd Tornado Turns… http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32381 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32381#comments Sat, 20 Aug 2016 06:44:53 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32381 Some weeks, it’s tough coming up with a subtitle for these columns. Some weeks, not so much. This is one of the latter, because the juxtaposition of a colorful (to say the least) description of Donald Trump with a soap opera’s title just naturally presented itself.

The quote comes in response to Trump’s campaign shakeup, which we’ll get to in a moment. One of the new people Trump hired comes from Breitbart News, and former Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro was being interviewed by CNN’s Brianna Keilar for his response to the shakeup. Here is the transcript, for everyone’s edification:

SHAPIRO: I mean, as you probably know, I think Donald Trump’s a turd tornado, but I also understand that he has no capacity whatsoever to control himself and be this staid politician that everyone wants him to be. Telling him to double down is not necessarily terrible strategy. If he’s gonna go down, he’s gonna go down being Trump.

KEILAR: A what tornado?

SHAPIRO: A turd tornado.

KEILAR: What is that?

SHAPIRO: Well, it’s like a sharknado. Except with poop.

Thanks for clearing that up, Ben! We’ll just add that to the images we never thought we’d have to think about in the world of politics (a list which has grown to epic proportions during this presidential race, it’s worth pointing out). With such an auspicious metaphor to work with, let’s see just how the turd tornado (turdnado?) turned last week.

The week began with a speech Donald Trump read off a TelePrompTer. And in a stunning development — are you sitting down? — he then did not stomp all over his message by saying monumentally stupid things for the rest of the week. No, really! True, his message was stomped all over by the shakeup news from his campaign, but this is actually an improvement for Trump. There wasn’t a single tweet or off-the-cuff statement at a rally that derailed Trump’s message this week — which has got to be a new record for him. How many days can he keep this up? We certainly don’t know, as evidenced by the fact that on Monday we wrote of the inevitability of it already happening by the end of the week — which we have to admit turned out not to be the case at all.

Before we get to the shakeup, a word about Trump’s messaging this week. He actually read three TelePrompTer speeches this week, and he seems to be improving (somewhat) on his delivery with each one. The first was on the subject of defeating terrorism and foreign policy in general. The Morning Joe program helpfully put together a mashup video of just a few of the things he said in Monday’s speech that utterly contradict what he’s said about the subjects in the past, which is pretty amusing to watch. The second was a law-and-order speech in front of a mostly-white audience, warning of the dangers of urban crime (which has been par for the course for Republicans since Richard Nixon’s time, it’s worth noting). By week’s end, Trump had made some astonishing news in the third speech, but we’ll get to that in a moment.

The campaign shakeup news was rather ominous for Republicans, since Trump pushed aside the only guy running his campaign who has had actual experience running campaigns before, and replaced him with two additions — a woman who worked for Todd Akin’s campaign (in the “outreach to women” job — you just can’t make this stuff up), and a guy who ran Breitbart News, a website for those who think that Fox News is just another part of the mainstream media’s liberal conspiracy. Yes, there are people out there who think Fox isn’t rightwingy enough, and they all apparently get their news from Breitbart. They also get plenty of conspiracy theories, but that almost goes without saying. The new theme for the campaign, as Shapiro referenced above, is going to be returning to “letting Trump be Trump.” Hoo boy. Buckle up, boys and girls!

Little-noticed in the midst of all this news was the very first poll Breitbart ever commissioned, which was intended to “unskew” all that liberal polling saying Trump wasn’t beating Clinton. The only problem was that even after all this unskewing, Clinton still beat Trump by five points. Guess they’ll have to rework that unskewing formula, eh?

But back to the Trump campaign. With Trump adding a Breitbart executive to his campaign, the rest of the Republican Party spent the entire week waiting for the other shoe to drop. Nobody knew what form it would take, but this morning that shoe hit the ground with a thump, with the announcement that Paul Manafort would be stepping down from the Trump campaign. All week long, the Trump campaign had insisted that they weren’t going through a shakeup at all, they were instead expanding the campaign by hiring more people to run things. This falsehood was exposed with Manafort’s resignation. The Trump campaign is now being run by people who have never run a national campaign for anyone before. And it’s worth pointing out that this isn’t the first such top-level shakeup in Trump’s campaign (and likely won’t be the last).

All of this news has led to noticeable glee over in the Clinton camp (and among Democrats in general). It’s easy to understand such giddiness, since Clinton’s recent polling is so strong, both in battleground states and in previously-deep-red states as well. Tim Kaine is campaigning in places like Wyoming, Idaho, and Missouri (to be fair, the first two aren’t realistic for Clinton to even hope for, as he was just fundraising there from wealthy Democrats). People are beginning to ask whether Trump’s defeat will rival Barry Goldwater’s — and it’s only August. With Trump doubling down on “being Trump,” things look pretty rosy for Hillary Clinton right now.

But there’s a cautionary tale running through the week that few inside-the-Beltway pundits have so far noticed. Could Trump actually be successfully pivoting, in the midst of the shakeup? He gave three TelePrompTer speeches, and had zero blowups this week. He didn’t say (or tweet) anything so radical it dominated the news cycle in a negative way — this during a week when naked Donald Trump statues mockingly appeared in multiple U.S. cities (more on that in the awards). He introduced his first two television ads of the general election. This is all new, for Trump. To end the week, Trump decided to pay a visit to flooding victims in Louisiana — an opportunity for him to show some compassion and “look presidential.” And in the third of those speeches he read this week, he kind-of sort-of apologized for all his previous outrageous statements. Here’s what he read off the screen:

Sometimes in the heat of debate, and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that. And believe it or not, I regret it. I do regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues. But one thing; I can promise you this: I will always tell you the truth.

Laughable as that might sound (especially that last line), this appears to be the first time Donald Trump has ever even remotely admitted any sort of mistake he’s made during the campaign. So, to review: three speeches read from prepared texts, two new television ads that will run in battleground states, one presidential-looking photo op, zero speeches ad-libbed at rallies, zero new controversial statements, and one semi-apology. That’s a much more focused Trump than we’ve yet seen. So perhaps all the Democratic celebration about his new campaign team might be a wee bit premature. Has Trump truly pivoted? Has he ridden out his own personal poopstorm? Time will tell. Perhaps this is all the final influence of Manafort, on his way out — perhaps next week Trump will return to form. But even with all the campaign shakeup news, Trump had a better week on the campaign trail than usual.

Finally, before we move along to the awards, we have to say a formal goodbye to John McLaughlin, who died earlier this week. The McLaughlin Group was a pioneer in political television, and for many (without cable subscriptions) was the only view into the contentious world that cable political shows have regularly become. With regulars on the right like Pat Buchanan and on the left people like Clarence Page, the show was always pretty freewheeling and interesting to watch. Countless political shows were inspired by their format, and McLaughlin had actually been trained as a Jesuit priest, which includes formal training in forming an argument (pro or con), so he was always able to examine strange angles and odd views that others routinely missed. OK, occasionally this veered into conspiratorial thinking, but McLaughlin usually seemed to be playing devil’s advocate (rather than “true believer”) by bringing such subjects up.

We’ll miss seeing John, and we’ll miss his show. Every year in this space, we run our year-end list of “McLaughlin awards,” since his categories were so complete and well-thought out. So we have a personal connection to the show (even if they never knew about it). So, in homage, there is only one possible way to salute John McLaughlin: with the final phrase he used to close each of his shows, to show how we will miss his presence.

“Bye-bye.”

 

Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week

Occasionally, we redefine our awards, and this seems a dandy week to do so. Rather than handing out a Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week this week, we are handing out a Most Impressive Anarchist Collective Of The Week award instead. We thought that changing it to the MIACOTW award would be more appreciated by an anarchist group, who might be offended by being linked to any official political party (even in an award).

The group INDECLINE had already made a name for itself by creating the largest-ever piece of illegal graffiti, by painting a political statement on a deserted military landing strip in the Mojave Desert. That’s pretty cool, we have to admit, especially when you consider that they spent $ 20,000 creating it.

But this week, INDECLINE outdid themselves, by placing a rather unflattering statue of a naked Donald Trump in five American cities (New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Cleveland, and Seattle). Being anarchists, they didn’t ask anyone’s permission, just set the statue up (and epoxied it to the ground, to make it harder to remove). This bit of political theater was even given a name: “The Emperor Has No Balls.” Reportedly, the statue didn’t, but it’s hard to tell from the available photos.

The artist, a guy from Las Vegas who goes by “Ginger,” reportedly “has a long history of designing monsters for haunted houses and horror movies.” That certainly seems like experience enough to create such monstrous statues, at least in our humble opinion.

The people behind the political theater knew their installations would be temporary. Reportedly, Cleveland was the fastest to remove it, while some in San Francisco are looking to preserve the statue in a suitable place. No real surprise there, we suppose.

Regular readers of this column will know that we are suckers for political theater (good, bad, and indifferent). As always, such theater must be judged on how amusing it is and how effective it is. On both these scales, “The Emperor Has No Balls” has to rate somewhere near the top end. It’s funny, it made a huge splash online, and now millions of people have laughed at a naked Trump provided by a group that few had ever previously heard of. All around, that’s pretty impressive, and well worth our special Most Impressive Anarchist Collective Of The Week award. Well done!

[Congratulate INDECLINE on their official contact page, to let them know you appreciate their efforts.]

 

Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week

This one wasn’t hard to select this week. Former Pennsylvania state attorney general Kathleen Kane easily wins the Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week award for being convicted of nine criminal charges, two of them felonies. It’s pretty disappointing when any Democrat is convicted of crimes, but when it is the person who is in charge of the entire state’s justice and law enforcement divisions, it reaches a whole ‘nother level.

The whole story is convoluted and rather sad. It began with the Jerry Sandusky/Joe Paterno scandal, widened to sexist and racist emails, and wound up in a personal vendetta Kane waged against a political rival. The scandal not only shook up the Penn State’s athletic department but also brought down two justices on the state supreme court, and even Kane’s twin sister (who, it turned out, had sent some of the emails).

At the heart of the charges against Kane was a leak of grand jury evidence that she later tried to pin on a scapegoat rather than admitting to leaking. Not only did Kane commit the crime, she also tried to cover it up, to put it more bluntly.

Kane was once considered a rising star among Pennsylvania Democrats, but not any more (to put it mildly). Among her other woes this week, we simply have to add our own Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week. This was a shameful episode in the midst of an investigation of an even-more-shameful crime, and there’s simply nothing good to say about it.

[Since Kathleen Kane has quit her office, she is now a private citizen, and our longstanding policy is not to provide contact info for people not currently serving in office.]

 

Friday Talking Points

Volume 404 (8/19/16)

We should really just be able to write “Volume 404 — Talking Points Not Found” here, but we fear few would get the joke (and it’d be awfully lazy to do so). Kidding aside, we actually do have to admit we have been rather lazy in putting together the talking points for the past month or so. This was due to the fact that all it took was repackaging what Republicans were saying about Donald Trump. No Democratic input was even necessary — just repeating the scathing things Republicans were saying was enough.

This week, we’re going to try to wean ourselves off this habit, by only providing a mere three (less than half!) of our talking points directly from Republicans slamming Trump. And we promise, our last talking point is one of the funniest we’ve come across yet, so there’s that to look forward to.

As always, use these talking points responsibly, and refrain from operating heavy machinery while doing so. Heh.

 

1
   The middle finger

The Washington Post set the tone for what was going on this week, most notably in a headline to an article run immediately after the first news of the Trump campaign shakeup:

Donald Trump’s Hire Of Breitbart News Chief Is A Middle Finger To The GOP Establishment

 

2
   Right back atcha…

Of course, to be fair, the number of Republicans giving Trump the finger has been growing for weeks, now.

“You can’t really blame Trump for turning his back on the GOP establishment, because they’ve been running away from his campaign in droves. The letter begging the R.N.C. to pull all money from Trump in a desperate attempt to salvage Congress, which was released last week, was initially said to have 70 signatures of Republicans on it. Now it’s got more than 100. Maybe by next week it’ll have another 50, who knows? Also last week, a member of George W. Bush’s cabinet came out in support of Hillary Clinton. Will the last Republican to leave Trump’s campaign please turn out the lights?”

 

3
   Divine intervention necessary

George Shultz weighed in on Trump this week, too.

“When George Shultz — one of the most-respected Republican foreign policy voices around — was asked recently about the prospect of a Trump administration, his response was brief and personal: ‘God help us.’ Shultz is right — if Donald Trump is elected president, this country is going to need all the divine intervention it can possibly get.”

 

4
   Sorry, you can’t come in

Even right-wing pundits are getting in on the act.

“What with all the news about Trump’s campaign shakeup, the content of his Monday TelePrompTer speech was all but ignored. But Washington Post conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin (whose column is even called ‘Right Turn,’ so you know where she’s coming from) hilariously took Trump to task for his concept of ‘extreme vetting.’ Rubin pointed out that Trump might just be a victim of his own program, if his ‘extreme vetting’ idea were ever to become law. Trump would fail on the metrics of ‘shares American values and respect for the American people,’ as well as falling short on being one of ‘those who we expect to flourish in our country and to embrace a tolerant American society.’ Be careful what you wish for, Donald, as you might not pass your own test quite as easily as you might think.”

 

5
   What, precisely, was Trump apologizing for?

The list is a long one.

“Donald Trump issued a blanket ‘apology’ this week. It was actually a non-apology, merely that he ‘regretted’ having said some things which ‘may have caused personal pain,’ but it’s as close to saying ‘I’m sorry’ as we’re ever likely to get. But his remarks were generic, with no specifics. The Washington Post then helpfully compiled a list of two dozen things he might have been referring to. Somebody needs to ask Trump which items on this list his non-apology apology covers, just to clear things up. With so many to choose from, inquiring minds want to know precisely what Trump actually ‘regrets’ having said so far.”

 

6
   A conspiracy theory that makes sense

The facts do seem to fit….

“Since Donald Trump began running, I’ve heard a lot of wild-eyed conspiracy theories from the left over what his plans actually were going to turn out to be. Most of these involved reading Trump’s mind and figuring out what his next move would be. Almost all of them have so far been proven hilariously wrong. My personal favorite was: ‘Trump will drop out of the primaries the minute he loses his first state.’ Or maybe: ‘Bill Clinton talked Donald into destroying the Republican Party’ — that was a fun one, right? But there’s a new conspiracy theory on the scene which actually could make a whole lot of sense. Is Donald Trump merely using a run for the presidency to launch his own branded media empire? Will ‘Trump News’ soon be on the air, competing with Fox News? Trump has reportedly been cozying up to Roger Ailes, and now he’s got the head of Breitbart News running his campaign, so it’s pretty easy to see how the effort could morph into ‘Trump TV,’ right after he loses in a landslide to Hillary Clinton. I mean, it could all make a twisted sort of sense, don’t you think?”

 

7
   Score one for NYC Parks

Issuing dry press releases all day in a mundane local government department must get pretty boring. And then a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity crosses your desk….

“The funniest thing I’ve heard this week was the official New York City parks department response, after they removed a nude statue of Donald Trump which had been illegally mounted in Union Square. Whoever came up with this gem deserves a raise, or a promotion to a P.R. job where they can better utilize their obvious skills. After removing the statue, an official statement was then released: ‘NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small.’ NYC Parks certainly rose to that occasion, as it were.”

Derailment And How To Manage It http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32378 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32378#comments Sat, 20 Aug 2016 06:44:18 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32378 2016-08-19-1471635426-4431424-IMG_4095.JPG

In the world of psychology, derailment describes thought processes that veer off track, go awry, stray from the thought. Like a car that has skidded off the road, the ideas fail to arrive at their destination. In the realm of politics, derailment refers to a tactic by those in power that deflects attention away from complaints about abuse or wrongdoing by introducing an alternative topic. This blog explores derailment as a diversion from a life goal, and how it’s possible to get back on course.

In his journal, the writer John Cheever alluded to a loss of continuity at a critical point in his life. “It seems that in my coming of age I missed a year–perhaps a day or an hour….The consecutiveness of growth has been damaged. But how can I go back and find this moment that was lost?” Although the impact of Cheever’s derailment extends beyond the scope of this blog, his expression highlights the common problem.

In the newly released movie, Florence Foster Jenkins, the heroine, Florence, contracted syphilis from her first husband. As a result, she didn’t bear children and was deprived of a fulfilling family life. That derailment led her to devote her life to singing and supporting the musical world with the fortune she inherited from her father.

We assume an extreme diversion is equivalent to a disaster, but the event may actually represent a chance to recover a “lost” direction or passion. The classic story of The Little Prince (recently made into a popular movie) can be viewed as a metaphorical derailment in the realm of literature. As a young boy, the protagonist of the story drew a boa constrictor swallowing an elephant. But the adults insisted that the drawing resembled a hat. Unimpressed with the child’s skill, the grown-ups redirected him from artistic to practical studies– geography, history, arithmetic, and grammar. “That is why I abandoned, at the age of six, a magnificent career as an artist,” the protagonist says, justifying his profession as a pilot. Years later, his plane crashed in the middle of the desert, and he was visited by a little prince who commanded him to draw. The little prince may well represent the pilot’s imagination or alter ego that harbored his desire to become an artist.

In real life, a patient of mine, Ms. W., experienced a serious depression, a kind of psychological crash. During her hospitalization, she recalled that in her youth, she had aspired to become a singer. In the hospital, she had the opportunity to connect her depression with the long-forgotten ambition. Upon her recovery, she studied voice and became a successful musician.

Conclusion: Although we can’t undo the past, we can recognize a derailment and take action to get back on track.

To Fight Zika Beyond Florida We Need Better Sex Education http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32377 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32377#comments Sat, 20 Aug 2016 06:44:17 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32377

In light of the recent news that Zika virus could stay in semen for more than six months ― twice as long as scientists previously though the virus could be detected ― it’s time for the United States to ramp up its focus on the major mechanism for Zika virus transmission after mosquitos: sex.

“For the public health community, Zika represents an unprecedented emergency,” Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, wrote in the Journal of the American Medical Association in August.

“Never before, to our knowledge, has a mosquito-borne virus been associated with human birth defects or been capable of sexual transmission,” Frieden wrote. “The effects of brain damage due to microcephaly and consequences of other Zika-related birth defects are likely devastating, lifelong, and costly.”

As Zika virus spreads, with at least 55 countries and territories reporting local transmissions, according to the CDC, and the United States reporting two areas of active transmission in Florida, health officials like Frieden have called for increased safe-sex messaging, even for people outside active Zika zones.

New York City is ramping up its public health messaging on sexually transmitted infections to include Zika virus in coming weeks, The New York Times reports. The campaign will feature posters, fliers, radio and television ads, in addition to deploying community health workers to communicate the risks of sexually transmitted Zika in person. 

Florida’s sex ed blunder

But not everyone is making public health a priority. In Florida’s Broward County, which is adjacent to Miami-Dade County, where active Zika transmissions are occurring, abstinence-only rhetoric is trumping public safety ― at least for now.

According to Miami news station WSVN 7News, Broward County removed two AIDS Healthcare Foundation billboards that featured unrolled condoms reminding people that safe sex “prevents Zika transmissions.”

The Fort Lauderdale mayor’s office and tourism board pressured the company to take down the signs, Michael Kahane, a spokesman for the foundation, told the station. “They felt, I guess, that they could impact tourism,” Kahane said. “I find it completely disgusting.”

Still, neither the mayor’s office nor the tourism board is taking credit for the sign’s removal, so it’s unclear who is behind the billboard takedown.

We still don’t know enough to write strong health policies

Using condoms is key to curbing sexually transmitted infection, including Zika virus, but health experts cautioned against overstating Zika’s sexual transmission risk compared to the larger risk of transmission via mosquitos.

Travel-related Zika virus is a major concern. The CDC currently recommends that pregnant women avoid traveling to areas with active Zika transmissions and use condoms or abstain from sex if their partner has traveled to a Zika outbreak area in the last six months. 

Dr. Federico Laham, the medical director of infectious disease at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando stressed that it’s also important for doctors to ask pregnant patients about their travel histories, regardless of whether or not the Aedes aegypti mosquito is present in their areas of practice.

One major challenge for health officials trying to curb sexually transmitted Zika in their respective cities is that it’s difficult to craft definitive public health and safe sex recommendations, because no one knows for sure how long Zika virus can stay active ― or remain capable of transmitting infection ― in men’s semen. 

That information is “very important if you are trying to craft a prevention method to your community,” Laham told The Huffington Post. “Any couple expecting a child will live with a lot of anxiety. It’s important for health officials to deliver a clear message.”

Zika isn’t the only STI that can hurt unborn babies

For Dr. Jeffrey Klausner, a professor of medicine in the infectious disease and global health divisions at the University of California Los Angeles, focusing on sexually transmitted Zika and the risk it poses to pregnant women misses the point.

“Zika is important, but we need a much broader holistic approach to address infections in pregnant women,” Klausner said. 

He cited congenital syphilis ― when a pregnant woman infected with the disease passes it to her child ― as a more common STI, with equally grave consequences. Indeed, congenital syphilis can cause severe illness, miscarriage, stillbirth and early infant death, as well as blindness, nervous system damage and deformity if left untreated. 

“When things are common and they occur regularly people forget about them,” Klausner said. “We need to remind people of the day-to-day risks.” 

There were 12 cases of congenital syphilis per 100,000 live births in 2014, an increase from 8 per 100,000 live births in 2012, according to the CDC.

Klausner believes defunded health departments and communicable disease programs in the wake of the 2008 recession is making it even harder to address issues like congenital syphilis and Zika virus.

He’s also frustrated by Congress, which failed to pass a Zika bill before leaving for summer vacation this year.

“You can’t trade the health of one population because of ideological views,” he said. “When Congress does come back, it’s going to be important for local constituents to demand a response.”

Living Richly With Less http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32372 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32372#comments Fri, 19 Aug 2016 06:56:48 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32372 In the past five months, I have thrown away hundreds of items in my apartment. It hasn’t been easy to let go of some things, but it has always been worthwhile. Part of this process has been practical as my girlfriend is moving in with me in a 230 square foot apartment. Most of the process has been personally fulfilling as it has made me feel more free an unencumbered.

Minimalism is not a new concept. It has been made popular by bloggers like Leo Babauta at Zen Habits and it seems to be a trendy thing to do. Some people may do it out of a sense of uniqueness or superiority, but I have my own reasons. Namely, living with less actually helps me to live more richly.

The Art of Living with Essentials

The concept of essentialism is far more appealing to me than minimalism. Instead of getting rid of everything, I get rid of only the things that are non-essential. I strip to the core, find what is most essential and remove everything else. Here are a few benefits and examples of living a rich life within the framework of essentialism:

1. Your possessions own you – Recently I had a conversation with a friend who is making around $ 12,000 a month. It’s a high salary for Texas, but he has so many possessions, most of the money ends up gone by the end of the month.

Many Americans exist with possessions like this. The home mortgage is so expensive that families aren’t free to travel. Boats, cars, and a host of other features people rarely use all cost money and restrict freedom. According to some estimates, Americans spend $ 1.2 trillion on things that are non-essential.

2. We fill up a space no matter the size – According to the LA Times, the average home is filled with 300,000 items. Most people fill up the space that they are given no matter what the size is. If they have a two-car garage, most cannot even fit their cars because of all the other possessions.

This is one of the reasons the tiny house movement has become so strong. My girlfriend and I live in a tiny apartment and may one day purchase a small, efficient home. Even when we visited the coast in Australia we spent time renting a tiny home. It just makes more sense, but it also feels much better. The burden is lifted to be in a smaller space because we can’t fill it with things we don’t need even if we tried.

3. Mental toughness – In life you will face trials, discomfort, and pain. That is the human condition. How we react to such trials and discomfort is dependent on how much practice we have. The reason people become spoiled is because they have consistently never had to deal with hardship and discomfort.

Living with less is sometimes not as comfortable. You might feel cramped, unable to do the things you’d like, and there is no room for luxuries when basic necessities barely fit. But these are all things that inoculate you from mental strain in the future.

The ancient stoic philosopher, Seneca, used to dress in the cheapest clothing and eat nothing so as to practice poverty. It was a way for him to intentionally build his mental toughness despite having plenty.

Radical Essentialism

At first it may seem difficult to be an essentialist, but it might be helpful to burn the boats and go all in. By becoming a radical essentialist you don’t just have a change in your physical surroundings. Sure, you’ll reduce your material possessions and free yourself from their burden, but you also have a psychological change. You will start to see the non-essentials in your life, such as people you’d rather not be involved with, poor habits you engage in, and others. You’ll find this to be a movement that changes the way you live and the way that you think.

Comment Sections Are Cesspools Of Rape Culture, Research Finds http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32371 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32371#comments Fri, 19 Aug 2016 06:54:39 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32371

One-fourth of all online comments at the end of news articles about sexual assault and rape include victim-blaming statements, new research out of the University of Southern California shows.

The study examined 52 articles and found that only one did not contain comments offering support for the accused perpetrator, the study said. Victim-blaming statements appeared in 1,097 of the 4,239 comments ― or just over 25 percent of them. 

“I was surprised that so many people were so mean about these victims,” Kristen Zaleski, associate professor at USC’s School of Social Work, told The Huffington Post. “Even knowing what I know about rape culture, I didn’t expect so much hate and judgment and discriminatory attitudes and othering ― there was a lot of othering.” 

Branded as a “first-of-its-kind study,” the researchers examined comments posted to rape-related articles published in the The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today and the Los Angeles Times between December 2014 and March 2015. In total, they looked at 52 newspaper articles covering everything from Bill Cosby’s accusers coming forward to the fallout from Rolling Stone’s flawed article on campus rape

If the accused perpetrator was a celebrity or public figure, the individual was more likely to receive support ― or commenters were more likely to attack the alleged victims. 

About 16 percent of all comments included statements of support for survivors, while 6 percent offered support to the accused assailants and 23 percent included “trolling” statements about law and society, the study concluded. 

Victims received more support and sympathy when the alleged perpetrator was not an American citizen or the assault occurred abroad. But in those cases, the victim-blaming comments were replaced by racist remarks.

type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related Coverage + articlesList=57ad48c2e4b071840410b8d6,57548e2fe4b0c3752dcdf574,576d323de4b017b379f59fc1

The researchers found that one of the most common victim-blaming responses was when commenters gave instructions to rape survivors ― for example, telling them that they should have gone to the police immediately.

That’s not an uncommon reaction: This week, comedian Kurt Metzger went on an extended social media tirade about rape allegations against a fellow comedian, Aaron Glaser. Many of Metzger’s comments criticized victims of sexual assault for not immediately reporting their attacks to cops.

Comments like this send an implicit message to rape victims that “If this is true, report it,” Zaleski said. “It’s very directive and almost dismissive.”

In articles about celebrities accused of rape, readers would suggest there was a conspiracy afoot. In an article about Bill Cosby, for example, a commenter said that “anyone who doesn’t recognize the political agenda behind these attacks on Cosby hasn’t been paying attention.”

Other commenters suggested that the survivor’s story was too unbelievable to be real or that too much time had passed for it to be real. They also accused victims of playing the “rape card,” or suggested they made up the charges after getting too intoxicated.

“There needs to be a law to protect men and teenage boys from charges made against them for rape or sexual misconduct by women and girls who are stupid enough to get drunk and allow this to happen then turn around and blame the male,” one commenter cited in the study said. 

The researchers also discovered a lot of disbelief that men could be assaulted. For example, one comment read: “Ask any guy, it is impossible for any man, especially a teenager, to be ‘raped’ by an NFL cheerleader!”

Some of the comments that blamed the victim also fell under the “trolling” category. These were more likely to bring up ― and then dismiss ― the idea of “rape culture,” denying that sexism, bigotry and inequality create a toxic environment that encourages rape. Conversations about “rape culture” in comment sections often turned into debates about statistics. 

“The people who had opinions about who’s to blame, who were basically blaming the survivors or victims, they would use the words ‘rape culture,’” Zaleski said. “They would be somewhat up on the topic and [say] it was bullshit, and one of the ways they would do that is talk about false reporting.”

Often, someone would defend the survivors in the comment sections by posting links to articles about how rare false accusations are, Zaleski explained. The victim-blaming commenters would question the source of the stats, and then there would be a data conversation, she said. 

The study, “Exploring rape culture in social media forums,” will be published in the October 2016 issue of Computers in Human Behavior.

‘Daily Show’ Eviscerates Trump’s Black And White View Of Law And Order http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32364 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32364#comments Thu, 18 Aug 2016 06:43:40 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32364

Trevor Noah sees Donald Trump’s recent attempt to woo black voters as a sure sign of campaign woes.

“You know things are bad when a rich white man is asking black people for help,” Noah said on Wednesday night’s show. “Normally, the only time a 70-year-old billionaire is asking black people for help, it’s usually their nurse … and it’s usually because they shit themselves ― which, technically, the Trump campaign has, so I guess it makes sense.”

Noah pointed out that the GOP presidential nominee’s attempt to appeal to black voters happened in front of an all-white audience in West Bend, Wisconsin, a city that is 95 percent white.

“He made a pitch directly to black voters, not near black voters, but to black voters,” Noah said.

Noah was particularly skeptical about Trump’s theories regarding racial discord between blacks and police, which the candidate blamed on the Democrats.

“Trump is implying the only reason black communities feel oppressed isn’t because of their experiences. No, it’s because the Democrats, who have tricked them,” Noah said. “Like before that, black people didn’t know what’s happening to them?

“They were like, ‘What? This is oppression? I thought the officer was massaging me with his night stick!’” 

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

Meditation For A Blessed Election http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32361 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32361#comments Thu, 18 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32361 I started writing guided meditations more than ten years ago. As a health and wellness coach I write them for myself to prepare for important trips and events. I write them for friends who are having medical procedures. I help clients write them. And a while back, when this toxic election season was really beginning to affect my peace of mind, I decided to write one specifically about the election. I, like many other Americans of both parties, was having “Trump anxiety.”

At the same time it’s not just politics on my mind. I have been moved and saddened by the many police shootings and terrorist attacks during this difficult year, and kept wondering what I could do to make a difference. How could I use my gifts to help?

I was hesitant to share this publicly because anything related to politics brings down a rain of toxicity and hatred upon the writer and I didn’t want to have that directed at me. After sharing it in my writers’ group and seeing its impact on several listeners, I decided I would share it with my intention for the best possible outcome.

Feel free to take it and make it your own, changing the wording as needed to suit your worldview. I hold on to the hope that most Americans want to feel good about our democratic process and our country. I love the idea of people across the country reading versions of this every day, amplifying its effect in the world. I hold on to the belief that it will make a positive impact on our country in the coming months.

Meditation for a Blessed Election
Guide me in conversation today with others who disagree with me.

Let me come to those conversations with an open, loving heart.

Guide me as to what actions I should take today to help move our beautiful country forward, and give me clear direction on how to do so.

Help America live up to her inclusive ideals.

Pour out your healing on the racism that still divides our country.

Let hatred be a thing of the past.

Help retrain our police officers where needed, while keeping them safe on the job.

Help heal those communities torn apart by gun violence with real, tangible progress and real solutions.

Help those of us with any kind of privilege use it for healing and justice and the betterment of all.

Bless the candidates near and far. Bless those running for office who are motivated by service and the higher good.

Bless their intentions. Bless their staff members and volunteers.

Bring out their best selves as they campaign.

Surround them with protection to keep them safe.

I say a special prayer for Hillary today. May she be her best and highest self. May she be able to speak clearly today and communicate her best intentions.

May she uphold and live up to all the hopes and dreams of women everywhere. May she be a shining beacon of light around the world.

Protect her from the hatred that is directed at her, surrounding her with a circle of light and powerful protection that is physically represented by the Secret Service. Keep them safe in their jobs and diligent while on duty.

I lift up all the candidates, surrounding them with love, support, and my highest intention for the good of the United States.

Let those who have the country’s highest good in mind, of either party, be blessed with an abundant flow of money, volunteers, and media support.

Let their supporters come forward in the hundreds of millions now and on November 8th. May we have the highest voter turnout in history.

May love trump hate.

May those people who will work together for the common good of our country and their constituents be elected in landslides.

May those people who have never spoken out before but feel moved, speak out.

May those who have never voted before register and vote on November 8th.

May those who have never done community organizing or volunteering sign up and get started.

May those who haven’t voted recently but want to make the country better and more unified get out to vote.

Remove all obstacles for people to get out and vote.

I look forward to breathing an enormous sigh of relief on November 9th, knowing that the country will be in Hillary’s steady, skilled, experienced hands, and that the legislative branch will be filled with people from both parties dedicated to getting to work together for their constituents, to compromise thoughtfully to move us forward.

Bless us all this day and keep us safe.

What Are Your Options if Medicaid Goes Broke http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32360 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32360#comments Thu, 18 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32360 Americans are living longer than ever.

With that longer life span comes increasing reliance on long-term healthcare services.

And costs associated with in-home care services, nursing homes, and other residential facilities are on the rise.

The primary payer for long-term care is Medicaid, the joint federal and state program designed to help Americans with limited incomes pay medical costs.

“Government programs such as Medicaid and the like may not necessarily be around going forward to provide assistance,” said Money Crashers finance expert David Bakke.

Bakke told Healthline that Medicaid is projected to run out of money in the year 2030, or perhaps as early as 2026.

“Medicaid will certainly have a challenge when it comes to handling the strain of long-term care for seniors and retirees,” he said. “You could make the argument that already the needs of the elderly aren’t being met in a satisfactory fashion under the current system. In fact, 37 percent of long-term care costs are currently being met with out-of-pocket funds.”

According to Bakke, some states are putting the onus on providers to keep care costs under control.

The realities of long-term care

Melissa Benjamin is a home care worker in Colorado and a leader in the Home Care Fight for $ 15. She’s in the trenches of home care services every day.

In addition to our aging population, she believes other factors are fueling the Medicaid crisis.

In an interview with Healthline, Benjamin said there’s already a shortage of home care workers, and she expects it to get worse. As more experienced workers age out of the workforce or look for employment elsewhere, fewer workers are willing to take up the slack.

“It’s no longer a viable career,” said Benjamin. “Low pay and lack of benefits keep people from choosing this type of work.”

The worker shortage is creating a care gap that forces difficult choices. When family members shoulder more of the care burden, it’s often at the expense of their own employment. Placing a loved one in a facility isn’t always the best option for them or for the family budget.

Although Medicaid covers both types of care, in-home care is often less expensive by several thousand dollars a month.

“It’s one reason I fight for home care. I believe by making home healthcare a viable career, we can keep more people in their homes and save the states money in the long run,” said Benjamin.

For some people, nursing home care is a must. But Benjamin believes many others can be happier and healthier being cared for in their own homes.

“In Colorado, about 10,000 people become seniors every day,” she said. “That’s a strain, and it’s true all around.”

Then there’s the gender gap.

At 37 years old, Benjamin is already concerned about her own healthcare needs as she ages.

“A higher percentage of home care workers are women. We make less, have fewer benefits, and pay less into Social Security. Often, women who cared for their husbands are left alone and needing care themselves. Plus, we live longer, so that time is more challenging.”

In Benjamin’s experience, long-term care insurance policies can save the day. The key is to sign up when you’re younger and rates are at their best.

Unfortunately, when rates rise, many aren’t able to keep paying the premiums. That can result in having to sell off assets to apply for Medicaid.

“I’ve held the hands of people in facilities as they cry. They want to go home, but their home has been sold to pay for facility care,” she said.

Planning for long-term care

Seniors, soon-to-be seniors, and caregivers can’t start planning soon enough. It’s a complicated issue and there’s no one-size-fits-all solution.

As alternatives to insurance and government programs, Bakke recommends a health savings account when applicable, a home equity line of credit, and in some cases, a long-term care annuity.

“In some instances,” said Bakke, “you might be better off foregoing long-term care insurance and paying for whatever costs are left over out of pocket, because of the high cost of paying for insurance coverage in that area.”

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, most seniors can’t afford the out-of-pocket costs of long-term care.

Jennifer FitzPatrick, author of “Cruising through Caregiving: Reducing the Stress of Caring for Your Loved One,” would like to see more public education about long-term care and Medicaid.

“There really needs to be a paradigm shift so older adults and their families are not counting on Medicaid because of misunderstanding,” said FitzPatrick, who has worked as a gerontologist and geriatric social worker for more than 25 years.

“I’d love to see Medicaid encourage more people to consider long-term care insurance, which covers much more than Medicaid can,” FitzPatrick told Healthline. “I wish I saw more being done so caregivers and older adults weren’t in crisis.”

FitzPatrick recommends consulting with a certified elder law attorney.

Benjamin and Fitzpatrick agree that consumers have a lot more options when using private funds than they do when using Medicaid.

“It’s important also for families and older adults to know that often when they do use a Medicaid benefit for a nursing home, for example, they aren’t getting as much choice,” said FitzPatrick. “Sometimes patients and caregivers are dissatisfied with the nursing home options available for a direct Medicaid admission.”

Americans are optimistic. We tend to underestimate the risk of needing long-term care.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that half of seniors over age 65 will have a health problem and need assistance for two years or less.

One in seven will need assistance for more than five years. Those turning 65 now can expect $ 138,000 in future long-term care costs. In many cases, costs will be much higher.

Having a long-term care policy is a good idea, if you can afford it. Most can’t.
As of 2014, fewer than 8 percent of Americans have private long-term care insurance.
Medicaid was never meant to cover long-term care for so many.

“I can’t count the number of caregivers who have incorrectly assumed that Medicare or Medicaid would pay for assisted living or indefinite home care services,” said FitzPatrick.

‘Daily Show’: ‘Gentle Breeze’ Bigger Threat To Trump Than Terrorism http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32356 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32356#comments Wed, 17 Aug 2016 06:43:37 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32356

Although Donald Trump’s campaign has had the wind taken out of its sails in recent weeks, he hoped to change things on Monday with his new tough-on-terrorism speech.

Did it work? “The Daily Show” correspondent Desi Lydic wasn’t so sure.

“[Trump] sees [terrorism] as America’s third biggest threat, right behind the news media and a gentle breeze,” she said on Tuesday’s show. 

The GOP presidential candidate has claimed that he opposed the Iraq War from the beginning, but Lydic said a simple fact check proved that was a lie.

“To the extent that Donald Trump cared about Iraq in the beginning, he supported the war,” she said, before playing an interview with Howard Stern from 2002 where Trump responded to a question about whether he supported the invasion by saying, “Yeah, I guess so.”

“That’s right,” Lydic said, “Trump was asked if he was for invading Iraq and he replied, ‘Yeah, I guess so,’ which, incidentally is also Trump’s go-to wedding vow.”

See the complete fact check in the video above.

 

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

Letting Go Of Toxic People http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32353 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32353#comments Wed, 17 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32353 Clearing our bodies of toxins isn’t always about what we eat or drink. Sometimes removing the poison means you have to make the difficult decision to cut toxic people out of your life to heal your soul.

It’s not an easy task.

Sometimes we aren’t even aware of the damage being caused from the negative energy of a friend or family member.

We don’t notice when someone is trying to control us. The signs are missed. You don’t understand why you are agitated, annoyed, and anxiety ridden in someone’s presence until you take a step back and get in touch with your inner self.

You don’t recognize that you often keep silent and resist the urge to defend yourself, to speak out when you are hearing lies. You give excuses as to why someone behaves the way they do because they have been there for you often over the years and you afraid to lose that perceived support.

I live by my emotions, and don’t always understand why I feel the way I do around certain people. It isn’t until I have “fact” that I can step away.

Maybe it’s the reporter in me — there is always two sides to a story. I try very hard to see every angle. Even if my instincts are telling me to walk away, I have a hard time cutting the anchor because I don’t want to ever be seen as “mean” or “bad.”

My insecurities often get the better of and have been used against me. But slowly I’m starting to emerge from my shell.

Maybe it’s getting older. You start to realize that not everyone has your best interest at heart. Some people like when you are in crisis because it fulfills their want to be needed. They feed off the drama.

They fill your head with half-truths and half-lies, making you believe things about yourself that you know aren’t true. They put a slant on every story in order in order to make themselves able to fit the role they’ve created.

For their story to work you have to be the antagonist or partner in crime because otherwise they will have to come face to face with themselves in the mirror.

It’s not easy to let go of the friendships, relationships and family loyalties that cause you pain.

But in the words of my friend Deb,

“If you need to cut ties, do it, and find those kind-like souls that can feed your spirit.”

The braver you are and recognize and remove those hurting you, the more room you have to be your true self and let the right people in who lift you up, not weigh you down.

Puppy Raisers Make World A Better Place http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32352 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32352#comments Wed, 17 Aug 2016 06:43:07 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32352 If you have ever spoken with a person who uses an assistance dog, you know that these dogs change lives. Whether it’s a PTSD dog helping a military person return to “regular life,” a hearing dog providing alerts to a person who cannot hear anything from the doorbell to a fire alarm, or a service dog providing aid to a person lacking mobility, these dogs are capable of miracles.

And what if you were offered the opportunity to be a part of one of those miracles? Most of us would certainly give the offer serious thought.

Last week was all about miracle workers, because it was International Assistance Dog Week (August 7-13), a week designated to honor service dogs and those who make those assistance dogs possible.

The teams of people needed to breed dogs, raise puppies, and train dogs satisfactorily to be service dogs are a hardworking lot, spread throughout the country, and they are affiliated with various service dog organizations.

More miracles, of course, are dependent on a bigger pipeline of puppies. As Katie Malatino, public relations coordinator for Canine Companions for Independence in Santa Rosa, California, says: “In order to provide more assistance dogs free of charge for people with disabilities, Canine Companions is gradually increasing the number of puppies in our program. Additional volunteers are a critical part of our mission.”

Getting Involved

So how do you get involved? Organizations that train service dogs use all sorts of volunteers. People are needed to help with running events, taking a shift at a fair or a mall where the organization is distributing literature, and assisting with all kinds of tasks related to running a business.

But perhaps the most selfless volunteers of all are the people who become puppy raisers. They willingly take a dog into their homes for about sixteen months and agree to take the dog out with them on excursions at all times possible, take them regularly for training classes (in which the puppy raiser also participates), and do everything they can to help this dog become a service animal.

Puppy raisers always know that if they do their jobs well—and the dog’s temperament is right—the dog will go on to live with someone else, being their eyes or their ears or an extra pair of hands. And of course, the dogs will always be the person’s first alert in case of an emergency.
Puppy raisers may be losing a puppy they loved, but they will come as close humanly possible to helping bring about a miracle.

Heartbreaking to have to give up a puppy? Yes. Heartwarming to see that dog function at the highest level in making another person’s life better… you bet!

How Puppy Raisers Feel
Sondra Thiederman is now raising her tenth puppy for Canine Companions for Independence, and she loves doing it. “My most memorable moment was when I handed over the leash of a service dog I raised to the woman she is now assisting. I can only describe it as a profound feeling of ‘ rightness’ – as if something 100% positive was happening and that we were a part of something special.”

Another puppy raiser, Mary Milton, says she is having the time of her life as a puppy raiser. “It is such an honor and privilege to see how these assistance dogs really do help people with disabilities become more independent. It is life-changing for them.”

And a couple, Jolie and Gene Marzo, wrote in an email: “If we can help make someone’s life better by raising an assistance dog, then we are lucky and proud to do it. The person’s smile is all we need to keep us going!”

So are you tempted?

Double-Check Your Plan
Like any other type of volunteer work, you want to make sure you feel comfortable with the organization you contact. You also need to be sure that being an on-the-ground puppy raiser is for you.

To do this, check what assistance dog programs are in your area. Assistance Dogs International sets the standards for assistance dog training. By visiting their site, you can click on a map for your region of the country to see what programs might be near you. Visit, offer to do some onsite volunteering with them (that, too, is very much appreciated), and talk to puppy raisers.

Canine Companions, the largest nonprofit providing assistance dogs, has offices in many parts of the country, and some of their puppy raisers live far afield. However, getting to know an organization is certainly much easier if you have an opportunity to meet some of the people.

Once you have some programs to check out, visit their websites. The Canine Companions website has a list of responsibilities to which puppy raisers commit. Socialization—taking the dog out to experience all types of social situations and public environments—as well as attendance at local obedience classes are two elements that are vital to returning with a well-mannered dog who knows basic commands.

Another organization I have had recent contact with is Susquehanna Service Dogs, located in Pennsylvania. They want puppy raisers somewhat nearby as they provide training classes and veterinary care near their headquarters. In addition to puppy raisers, they keep a list of puppy sitters… people who are familiar with the program so that they can fill in for a day or a week or longer if puppy raiser needs to be away and can’t take the dog with them. This seems like a good way to test out whether full-time puppy raising is for you.

If you decide to apply to be a puppy raiser, you will have plenty of opportunity to have any additional questions answered during the application process.

More Dogs, More Miracles?
“If I hadn’t done this, I never would have had the joy of feeling that my efforts had, in fact, contributed to helping another human being live a more independent and productive life,” says puppy raiser Sondra Thiederman.

Susan Tyson of Susquehanna Service Dogs adds: “We’re changing people’s lives one dog at a time!”

To read about some of the lives that have been changed, see the story about Mary Hill, who needed to retire her first service dog so she is now one year into life with her new dog, or Professor John Terhorst, who teaches chemistry at Vanguard University and knows exactly why his students are always smiling in the classroom. There’s also Heather, a hearing dog, who makes Jeanne Glass’s life complete.

Also read about John Wiesniewski and his dog, Slate. Slate has helped two veterans who suffered symptoms of PTSD. There is also a story about a diabetic alert dog, Ija, who worked in the classroom with a teacher.

And many organizations have active facebook presences where you can keep up on the puppies and the progress with the people with whom they are eventually paired.

John Oliver Calls Out Big Oil Trade Group For Plagiarism http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32348 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32348#comments Tue, 16 Aug 2016 06:43:46 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32348 The oil industry’s lobbying arm, already under fire for its role in a decades-long climate change cover-up, has now been accused of plagiarism.

John Oliver, host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” said on Sunday’s show that the Rio Olympics has been chock full of “starring performances,” none as bold as a TV advertisement aired by the American Petroleum Institute, or API. 

“You took our shit, API!” Oliver said of the trade group’s ad, which looks suspiciously similar to “Last Week Tonight’s” opening credits. “You took our shit. Everything, from the font to the design style.”

The copying is so spot on, Oliver said he was “honestly worried I was about to watch 29 minutes of a rat-faced Englishman telling me sad news facts.”

Left with “no choice” but to return API the favor, Oliver aired new mock opening credits for “Last Week Tonight,” featuring hoody wearing, Instagram-loving millennials. 

“Hey Rebecca, did you know the API spent decades and millions of dollars supporting deniers of man-made climate change?” a chipper actor named Andy asks in the fake introduction. 

“I did,” an actress named Rebecca responds. “Did you know they had research warning them about a link between fossil fuels and climate change as early as 1968? Maybe that’s why their logo looks like it’s being impaled by a polar bear’s dick.”

API did not respond to The Huffington Post’s requests for comment.

See Oliver’s full takedown of the American Petroleum Institute below.

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

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.

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

Pre-Start http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32345 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32345#comments Tue, 16 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32345 It is only fear that allows you to keep making excuses for why you might not look, every day, into what is going right and what’s gone wrong in your life. Until you choose to be brave in your decisions and fearless with your self, you will have a hard time facing your need to be truthful and vigilant… which is what a quality life requires of you.

Getting Over Your Self does not come in a formula, so if you are here to avoid doing any work, you’re in the wrong isle… may I suggest romance novels. How dare I talk to you like that? Get Over Your Self and recognize when you are blaming others for what is happening inside of you.

Like everything else, working on yourself is only an opportunity. You can either let it pass you by, or work on clarifying your decision making processes to bring you closer to discovering the best in you… which is living with your truth specifically not following anyone else’s truth because it just doesn’t work to live someone else’s life, no matter how hard you pretend or how comfortable you try to make it. Last Warning: Look at the end result of your decisions before you make them. Embrace the quality of your own life’s decisions. It will work better for you than the alternative.

And that is why it is important that you discover what it means, and why there is value in, Getting Over Your Self. It is your choice to be Honest (truthful), use Foresight (have consideration), and be Brave (show integrity) so you can discover how to create the kind of life you and everyone around you can live with… which is why this blog is in single page chapters… to cut down on the rhetoric, which means a better (faster) experience for you. However, some of the chapters you will like and others you will not. Just so you know, this is not a workbook for you to follow in hopes of finding your “stuff” or fixing your “shit.” It is just a wake up call with tools listed in alphabetical order… the rest is up to you… and it really is up to you to find out what is keeping you from discovering the truth/your truth.

Aetna Drops Obamacare In Most States http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32344 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32344#comments Tue, 16 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32344

Aetna Inc, the No. 3 U.S. health insurer, on Monday said that due to persistent financial losses on Obamacare plans, it will sell individual insurance on the government-run online marketplaces in only four states next year, down from the current 15 states.

Aetna’s decision follows similar moves from UnitedHealth Group Inc. and Humana Inc., which have cited similar concerns about financial losses on these exchanges created under President Barack Obama’s national healthcare reform law.

Aetna is also trying to buy Humana and is currently fighting a U.S. government lawsuit aimed at blocking the $ 34 billion deal.

Aetna, which earlier this year said it was too soon to give up on the exchanges despite its challenges, this month signaled it was reconsidering. On Aug. 2, the company said it would not expand in 2017 and would review all its individual business.

Many insurers last year had said they expected to profit on the exchanges, but now say more exchange rules must be changed for it to be sustainable. Only about 11 million people have signed up through the exchanges, about half as many as expected.

Larry Levitt, healthcare economist at the Kaiser Family Foundation, said that if enrollment stagnates, small technical fixes likely will not be enough to bring big insurers back. “More healthy people need to be encouraged to sign up,” Levitt said by email.

Aetna said that the current risk adjustment system, in which the government balances out the costs of sicker than typical populations through payments to insurers, is not adequate.

Aetna said that it had a second-quarter pretax loss of $ 200 million on the individual business and has lost $ 430 million since the plans first went on sale in 2014.

Kevin Counihan, Chief Executive of the U.S. government-run individual marketplace, said that the risks of the customer pool is improving.

“It’s no surprise that companies are adapting at different rates to a market where they compete for business on cost and quality rather than by denying coverage to people with preexisting conditions,” Counihan said in a statement.

Aetna on Monday said it would continue to sell plans on the exchanges in Delaware, Iowa, Nebraska and Virginia in 2017. The plans, which are eligible for income-based government subsidies, will be sold in 242 counties, down from 778 counties this year. States it is exiting include Florida and Ohio.

It will continue to sell individual plans that meet the law’s requirements – such as not denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions – outside of the exchanges where it does now, the company said.

How Trump Is Costing Other Republican Candidates http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32341 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32341#comments Mon, 15 Aug 2016 06:43:41 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32341 Before the RNC, the Fiscal Times declared that Trump was “not as much of a drag on the ticket as some feared.” After a bad month for the GOP nominee, I decided to test that argument, to see if that was still the case. In 15 races for the U.S. Senate and governor, Democrats boosted their numbers in 10 of those cases, and held two others constant, showing “the Trump effect” was bad for the GOP.

2016-08-15-1471237468-8714947-IsTrumpADragOnTheTicket.jpg

In Arizona, 2008 Presidential nominee and GOP Senator John McCain is within the margin of error, after having a more comfortable lead back in May. Democratic Senator Michael Bennet, meanwhile, has opened up a double-digit lead on his opponent in Colorado, after leading by six points a month ago. Florida GOP Senator Marco Rubio has seen his lead over Democratic Congressman Patrick Murphy cut in half.

Early polls showed Illinois Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth with a six point lead over Senator Mark Kirk, a Republican, though his own poll had it a statistical dead-heat. But now her lead is up to seven points over Kirk. Missouri GOP Senator Roy Blunt, a Republican, was supposed to win reelection, but he finds his lead over Jason Kander narrowing somewhat. And in New Hampshire, GOP Senator Kelly Ayotte’s two point lead has been replaced by a ten point advantage to New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan, a Democrat.

The Tar Heel State represents Ground Zero in terms of trouble for Republican candidates. Governor Patrick McCrory sported a seven point lead, while Senator Richard Burr opened up a ten point lead. Both now trail their Democratic candidates, Attorney General Roy Cooper and state legislator Deborah Ross, respectively.

In March, Pennsylvania GOP Senator Pat Toomey was prevailing by 13 percentage points in his race against state environmental official Katie McGinty. Now she’s pulled ahead by three points. Former Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold, who was beating Ron Johnson (the man who ousted him six years ago) by nine points, now boasts a double-digit lead.

Data was unavailable for the Indiana Senate race, but given the late entry of former popular Democratic Governor and Senator Evan Bayh and the shifting of the race from the Republican column, one can hardly conclude that this is a positive sign for the GOP in the Hoosier State.

Three Republicans have been able to increase their lead, despite a bad post-RNC Convention for Donald Trump. Nevada Congressman Joe Heck has regained a 1 point lead over Democratic Rival Cortez Masto in the race for Harry Reid’s Senate seat. Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley is now up by 10 points, instead of seven, over Democratic challenger Patty Judge. And Ohio Senator Rob Portman increased his lead to five points over former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland, who was leading by a point earlier this year.

But these boosts in popularity have hardly been the result of Trump’s strong candidacy. Even though the RNC was held in Cleveland, Ohio, Portman largely stayed away. In fact, he’s shied away from Trump in general, and regained his lead based on an independent streak, focusing on education, and capitalizing on Strickland’s mistakes.

Two incumbents in the survey have been able to maintain their current position. New York Senator Chuck Schumer, a Democrat, maintains his 32 point lead while Georgia Senator Johnny Isakson has reestablished his nine point lead over Democratic businessman Jim Barksdale.

Critics may claim that I am counting slight deviations for Democrats as boosts for the party. I am doing the same for Republicans, however, applying the same standards, using data from realclearpolitics except for the Duckworth-Kirk race, where the site did not pull up the polls, and I had to rely on other sources.

It is important to note that these findings represent a trend for cases of Democratic incumbents, Republican incumbents, and open seats. No congressional scandal or unpopular legislation can account for these trends. And those Republicans faring better or holding serve managed to stay away from Donald Trump. The GOP would be wise to spend their money preserving their Congressional majority, rather than send it to a candidate who has been a drag on the ticket.

Traveling Playmates And Benefits Of A Road Trip http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32338 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32338#comments Mon, 15 Aug 2016 06:43:07 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32338 A few days ago I posted about partners and how much fun it can be to play with them not only in your home city, but across the globe. There is something about traveling in an intimate space that can really bring you closer in connection with your partner.

That is one of the reasons why traveling on a road trip can be such a fun excursion. You have the opportunity not only to spend time with them in enjoyable places, but also become physically (and emotionally) close to them in order to further the relationship.

The Benefits of the Road Trip

Now that I’ve made it clear how great a road trip can be, it’s time to put my money where my mouth is. What makes it so great? How can you improve the quality of your road trip? Here are a few of my answers.

1. Road trips test your boundaries – If you go on a road trip with your partner, it isn’t just fun and games. It is going to be work in some respects. You are going to have to learn what you can accept in the relationship and what you do not accept. There will be times where you feel the need for space, but through it all you will really learn how to connect with your partner and see them for what they are.

Testing your boundaries is the best thing that you can ask for in a relationship. Indeed, it is a great test of your abilities in partnership so that you can determine if you are ready for the next steps.

2. Road trips are about shared experiences – After a breakup, one of the reasons the city you mutually lived in is so hard to remain is because of everything that reminds you of them. These are the shared experiences. Now consider going across the country or globe with this significant other and all of the different experiences that you will share. It makes a big difference. Just make sure you capture those travel experiences so you don’t end up losing the memories or having them become stale.

3. Road trips strain financial and adult topics – some relationships are nothing but good feelings and a lesser version of hedonism (think partying, partying, sex, and partying with sex). While that can be fun, a relationship is going to face practical challenges and it is better to look at them sooner than later.

Go Forth and Travel

You may never consider traveling with your partner in the same way after you do a road trip together. In fact, you may never see them as humans in the same way. This is one of the reasons why it is so imperative to try something like this. Stretching the bounds of your relationship will ultimately leave you knowing more, connecting deeper, and feeling better about yourself and future together.

I’m An Olympic Paratriathlete, And Sleep Training Is My Winning Secret http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32337 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32337#comments Mon, 15 Aug 2016 06:43:07 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32337 Sleep. It’s the five-letter word that can send some of us into frenzy-fueled insomnia. We’ve all been there: counting down the hours until we can get back into bed, only to find ourselves staying up too late staring at undeserving screens, — one in the parade of sleep saboteurs we face each day. When you finally pull the covers up, you promise yourself tomorrow night you will be better, only to repeat the sleepless cycle night after night, leaving your eyes heavy and your mind foggy day after day.

As a new mom and an elite-level athlete I have beyond-busy days so I’m no stranger to exhaustion. But I’m also always looking for ways to take my training to the next level. I have two amazing coaches who push me every day in my swimming, biking and running. My nutritionist has helped me hone my diet so I can fuel my body to get me through even the most exhaustive workout. I work with a sports psychologist who helps me mentally prepare and focus for each race, and a team of others who help me and my muscles recover for the next day of training.

melissa stockwell

In my personal life, I have an amazing support system of babysitters, a nanny and an encouraging husband, who watch our son while I train to be the best athlete I can be. And yet, I’ve still found myself exhausted halfway through the day, struggling to find the energy to get through a second workout. Being a new mom, I knew that exhaustion was part of the parenting package. But when I was often too exhausted to keep up with second workouts that once came so naturally, I knew I needed a change. Cue training for sleep!

Working with a sleep expert from Sleep Number, I’ve learned the ins and outs of full mind-body recovery thanks to a sound night’s sleep. Deep sleep not only restores the spirit, but energizes the brain and body. Too little, and your ability to make split-second decisions is compromised. On ultra-intense training days, my body needs even more sleep than the average person’s does so I can fully recover from the day. My husband and I are lucky that our son is a great sleeper — once he is asleep, he typically doesn’t wake up for 10 to 11 hours, giving us plenty of time for our own restorative sleep. I’ve learned to limit caffeine (no midday latte for me), avoid bright lights before bedtime and ditch the devices at least an hour before I hit the sheets, all while trying to maintain the same sleep schedule every night.

Sometimes these suggestions are easier said than done, but I’ve made a strong effort to incorporate them into my routine, with the goal of getting eight or more hours of solid sleep a night. And it must be working because soon after I began my sleep training, I’ve noticed a drastic change in my days. My mind has been clearer and I can focus longer. Whether it’s in the pool, on the bike or reading a bedtime story to my son, I’m able to savor moments in a new way.

My training has improved, I’m able to push my body further than ever before, and I’ve seen my training times gradually speed up. I’ve experienced firsthand how sleep training can quickly become an athlete’s secret weapon. After all, my bed has become one more tool that helps me take my training to the next level so I can be ready to race with the world’s finest athletes this year in Rio!

Just like diet and exercise, sleep is unique to each person and important for optimal health. Sleep Number® beds adjust on each side to your ideal level of firmness, comfort and support — your Sleep Number® setting. And when you add SleepIQ® technology you’ll know what to adjust for your best possible sleep.

Trump Rails Against Press In Response To Reports Of Chaos http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32334 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32334#comments Sun, 14 Aug 2016 06:43:38 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32334

U.S. Republican Donald Trump on Saturday repeated his attack on President Barack Obama that he helped “found” Islamic State and railed against media reports that his campaign is failing, at a campaign rally in Connecticut, a state where he has a long-shot of being victorious.

Speaking for more than an hour in a sweltering room, Trump spent a significant portion of his speech complaining about the media.

He again threatened to revoke the press credentials of The New York Times. The credentials allow reporters access to press-only areas of his campaign events. He has already banned other outlets, including The Washington Post.

On Saturday, the New York newspaper published an article detailing failed efforts to make Trump focus his campaign on the general election.

“These are the most dishonest people,” Trump said. “Maybe we’ll start thinking about taking their press credentials away from them.”

Trump visiting Connecticut, a heavily Democratic state, raised eyebrows among many Republicans.

“It’s asinine that he would be in Connecticut holding a public rally less than 90 days before the election,” said Republican strategist Matt Mackowiak. “You don’t see Hillary publicly campaigning in Idaho and Mississippi. I have to think this proves the candidate is running the campaign, which explains why it’s such a disaster of biblical proportions.”

At several points the crowd chanted “lock her up,” a frequent campaign rally chant in reference to Trump’s Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Trump told the crowd that normally he responds by saying he intends instead to defeat her in the Nov. 8 election, but this time added, “You know what? You have a point!”

Trump also dropped his recent efforts to say he was not being serious when he said Obama was the “founder” of the Islamic State militant group .

“It’s the opinion of myself and a lot of people that he was the founder,” Trump told the crowd.

Democrats and Republicans alike have criticized Trump’s assertion as patently false.

Trump took a detour from attacking Clinton’s economic record to discuss the 1998 scandal involving White House intern Monica Lewinsky and former President Bill Clinton, whom Republicans attempted to impeach.

“Remember when he said, he did not have sex with that woman, and a couple of weeks later, oh you got me,” Trump said, to cheers. He then made reference to a blue dress that became a symbol in the investigation. “I’m so glad they kept that dress, so glad they kept that dress, because it shows what the hell they are.”

I met Will, a passionate, highly talented Christian Poet, a few years ago in the streets of Wynwood and we soon adopted each other as Uncle and Nephew. I have beheld and been inspired by Will’s and Lindsey’s beautiful courtship, in which keeping to their shared Faith, they have abstained from kissing and physical intimacy until they are married.

Very often great results come when a session is wrapped but another great shot is seen and creativity rules.

Twitter Is Dragging Demi Lovato Over Tasteless Zika Joke And You’re Invited [UPDATE] http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32330 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32330#comments Sun, 14 Aug 2016 06:43:07 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32330

UPDATE: 2:20 p.m. ― Demi Lovato has responded to her social media critics with a Twitter apology, explaining that her laughter wasn’t directed at her mother’s controversial comments. 

“In no way did I mean to offend anyone last night,” she wrote. “I was laughing at how southern my mom sounded, not the issue at hand. Deepest apologies.”

Lovato probably should have stopped there, but minutes later, shared another tweet to politely inform those interested that if we follow her on social media, we’re obviously still fans. 

“I ain’t goin nowhere bitches,” she wrote. 

PREVIOUSLY: Twitter would like to cordially invite you to the #DemiLovatoIsOverParty. Black tie optional, gifts accepted and it goes all night. 

On Friday, Demi Lovato angered fans with a Snapchat video of her mother, Dianna Hart, making light of the Zika virus, which has been linked to as many as 1,700 cases of birth defects in Brazil since the outbreak began in 2015. 

“Everybody down in Rio gonna get the Zika virus,” Hart tells the camera, drink in hand. Lovato can be heard laughing in the background. 

To add insult to injury, the singer included three laughing emojis in the Snapchat. You can watch the video here

The Snapchat was one of two Lovato shared yesterday. The other clip, captioned “Momma  ,” shows Hart dancing next to Lovato, encouraging her daughter to join in on the fun. 

Brazilian social media users were the first to spread word of the video online, sparking a conversation on Twitter about why Lovato would ever share the Snapchat, let alone condone her mother’s insensitive comments. Soon, #DemiLovatoIsOverParty was trending worldwide. (The hashtag plays on #KimExplosedTaylorParty, which took root after video surfaced appearing to show Taylor Swift approving certain lyrics of Kanye West’s controversial song “Famous” after she denied having any knowledge of them.) 

The “Cool For The Summer” singer’s legion of fans ― known as Lovatics ― then came out in full force to defend their queen, shifting the blame to Hart and pointing fingers at rival fandoms for getting the hashtag trending. 

Lovato has yet to address the controversy, and, as the ex-Disney star already made clear, she chooses to Snapchat, instead of tweet, to avoid this kind of response.

Good party? Hope you got a goodie bag!

This week, we provide a number of rants from Republicans about their very own party’s presidential nominee. Yes, it’s only August and the Republican Party is coming apart at the seams. Which, of course, makes for great summertime reading for all!

Before we get to all the Republican-on-Republican violence, though, we’ve got to cast an eye over the week that was. If there’s one thing that is unmistakably true about Donald Trump it is that he just can’t help himself. You can read that literally — nothing he seems to do ever improves his standing with the general electorate — or as a metaphor for Trump’s inability to stop saying silly and outrageous things in public. Either way, Trump certainly does pack a lot into a single campaign week, and can probably be expected to continue doing so right up to Election Day.

This was (as were many other previous weeks in the campaign calendar) supposed to be the week when Donald Trump successfully “pivoted” and turned everything around. To say that didn’t happen would be an understatement. Hillary Clinton had a mini-scandal break that even involved emails, and yet it was barely a story in the political world (the emails weren’t all that damning, even to anti-Clinton types) — because Trump was, once again, sucking up all the oxygen.

Trump started the week off with a serious, read-from-a-TelePrompTer speech on the economy. This was the big pivot, folks! Everyone look — Trump’s being serious. Right up until he mispronounced the word “cities,” inexplicably replacing the “c” with a “t.” So much for being serious.

Later in the week, Trump claimed that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton got together a few years ago and said to each other: “Hey, we’ve got some free time, why not start a jihadist group in Iran and Syria?” No, really — Trump claimed both Obama and Clinton were not only “founders” of the Islamic State, but apparently also that the Islamic State has somehow become a sports league who hands out “most valuable player” awards — which would, of course, go to Obama and Clinton. Got all that? When gently asked to perhaps rephrase his statement a bit, Trump (of course) declined.

Trump also proposed during the week that U.S. civilians accused of terrorism either be sent to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, or be tried in military tribunals. This remark, while shockingly unconstitutional, kind of got lost in the whirlwind, though.

Much more attention was paid to Trump using the “Second Amendment people” dog-whistle to a crowd, suggesting that perhaps guns would be the best answer if President Hillary Clinton ever started trying to appoint federal judges.

Once again, any one of these statements would have been a career-ender for just about any political candidate imaginable, but then Donald Trump is beyond “imaginable” and always has been.

Trump utterly blew his planned pivot to seriousness, pretty much all week long. He even blew a chance to rip into Clinton for having the Orlando shooter’s father behind her at a rally — while congressional-page-enthusiast Mark Foley was sitting right behind Trump. It’s like we’ve all fallen into a bad Hollywood script that would never have been greenlighted for a movie, or something.

While Trump continues to absolutely tank in the polls (including all of the swing states he would need to claim victory), the Republican National Committee is apparently getting a wee bit nervous. They’re holding what is being described as a “come to Jesus” meeting with Trump campaign staffers today, so who knows what will happen next? Some prominent Republicans are already publicly calling for the R.N.C. to direct all its money away from Trump and instead towards desperately trying to hold onto some Senate and House seats, but we’ll get to that in the talking points section.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton’s campaign has pulled all advertising out of Virginia and Colorado, because they consider those two swing states in the bag for Clinton. Instead, they’re expanding operations in (are you sitting down?) Arizona and Georgia. No wonder some Republicans are already darkly muttering about the impending landslide that’s going to bury Trump. Hillary Clinton even wrote an op-ed for a Utah paper, a formerly reddest-of-the-red state that could also flip for her.

Team Clinton is almost gleeful in their triangulation plans, at this point. Hillary is reaching out to Republican voters everywhere, but in doing so she risks generating some backlash among progressives, who already mistrust her. But the confidence being exuded by the Clinton campaign is palpable, and today Hillary released her 2015 tax return while taunting Trump to do the same (with a new “What’s he trying to hide” ad).

All that, in one week. Whew! And it’s only August… things will undoubtedly speed up even further in the coming months. But for now, let’s move right along to the awards.

 

Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week

Senator Bernie Sanders gets a Honorable Mention this week, for clearly denouncing the decision made this week by the Drug Enforcement Agency to keep marijuana on Schedule I, a definition that includes the phrase “has no currently accepted medical use” — even though half of the United States have now legalized medicinal use. Sanders is also co-sponsor in the Senate of a bill that would throw the legal issue to the states once and for all. See my column from yesterday for more details about this backward-facing decision, but it’s good to see a politician who isn’t afraid to get on the right side of history in such fashion.

But the Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week this week goes to none other than President Obama. What with everyone intensely watching all the polling surrounding the presidential race, Obama’s job approval numbers haven’t been in the news of late. They should be, however.

This week, on the Real Clear Politics tracking page, Obama sits at 51.9 percent approval from the public, with only 44.2 percent disapproval. Those are better numbers than he’s seen since the second month of his second term, three-and-a-half years ago. Obama not only has been rising all year long, but he also got a convention “bump” in the polls on top of it. This should cheer up Hillary Clinton, because presidential job approval polling is very predictive of who will win in November. If Obama keeps his numbers above 50 until then — as now seems entirely possible — then Clinton might just be a shoo-in.

There’s a simple explanation for this trend. It’s not because of some big legislative victory Obama just won in Congress (Congress has barely done anything this year). It’s not because of some dramatic foreign or domestic policy win, either. Obama is rising in the public’s estimation because people are now being seriously confronted with the two candidates who might be our next president. In other words, the more the public pays attention to the 2016 campaign, the better they think of the job Barack Obama is doing.

One of the most amusing moments at the Democratic National Convention was hearing, during President Obama’s speech, several shouts of “Four more years!” (even though this is constitutionally impossible). It seems a whole lot of other people are going to miss Obama when he’s gone, and his spike upwards in the polls to almost 52 percent approval wins President Obama this week’s Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week.

Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week

We almost didn’t have anyone to give this week’s Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week award, but one really stupid gaffe caught our eye at the last moment.

Congressman Patrick Murphy is running in the Democratic primary in Florida to be the Democrat to take on Marco Rubio. While criticizing Donald Trump (and his “hatred and fear-mongering”), Murphy had the following to say, to Jorge Ramos:

We are stronger as one, as a united country. That’s what makes this country so beautiful and so unique. You know, you think of the Statue of Liberty, right? And all of us. I’m an immigrant. We’re all basically immigrants here. And you think of that beacon of hope, of opportunity, and Trump is tearing that apart. And that is scary to me.

Except that he’s not actually an immigrant. From his own official biography page, he was “born and raised in Florida, spending most of his childhood along the South Florida coast.” He’s also already gotten into trouble about exaggerating his own history during his campaign — which would tend to make you a lot more careful about what you say, you would think.

Reasonable people can interpret this as a weak attempt at a sweeping statement. “I’m an immigrant,” Murphy says, in the same spirit that we were all Charlie Hebdo, in other words. “Most Americans are,” Murphy might have said, “if you go back far enough in their family, immigrants.” Unfortunately he didn’t say that. He said “I’m an immigrant” when he most decidedly is not one. In Florida, where a lot of people care about that particular distinction.

This was a stumble, not an enormous fall. As we said, it almost doesn’t even reach the level of the MDDOTW award, but for his political misstatement he was more disappointing than any other Democrat this week, so we decided to go ahead and give Murphy the award anyway.

Friday Talking Points

Volume 403 (8/12/16)

It is extraordinarily rare for prominent members of a political party to publicly denounce their chosen presidential nominee. It’s so rare in normal elections that it becomes big news immediately. This election, however, it has become almost commonplace for Republicans to repudiate Donald Trump’s candidacy. As a mark of how commonplace it is, we had not just one scathing indictment of Trump and his campaign this week, but three.

The first is from Republican Senator Susan Collins, of Maine, who penned an op-ed piece in the Washington Post, explaining why she cannot bring herself to vote for or support her party’s nominee. The second was from a group of 50 national security professionals stretching from the Nixon administration to the Cheney administration (whoops, we meant to say the “Bush administration,” obviously). Kidding aside, these are the serious foreign policy types on the right, and they not only stated they weren’t going to vote for Trump, they predicted that if he wins he will be “the most reckless President in American history.” And the third public evisceration of Trump came from 70 Republicans who called on the Republican National Committee to “immediately halt all support for Donald Trump and invest its resources in a real and winnable campaign to save the Republican Senate and House.”

So with that wealth of anti-Trump material coming from his own party, it seems almost redundant to come up with Democratic talking points this week. There is plenty of material available — just in the past week alone — that badmouths Trump worse than we could hope to do. So we’re just going to provide excerpts from these three documents, with a bonus quote at the end, just for the heck of it.

 

Senator Susan Collins

Senator Collins started her opinion piece off with a flat statement: “I will not be voting for Donald Trump for president.” She explains how she struggled with this decision, but Donald Trump just made it harder and harder for her to explain away his own behavior.

With the passage of time, I have become increasingly dismayed by his constant stream of cruel comments and his inability to admit error or apologize. But it was his attacks directed at people who could not respond on an equal footing — either because they do not share his power or stature or because professional responsibility precluded them from engaging at such a level — that revealed Mr. Trump as unworthy of being our president.

My conclusion about Mr. Trump’s unsuitability for office is based on his disregard for the precept of treating others with respect, an idea that should transcend politics. Instead, he opts to mock the vulnerable and inflame prejudices by attacking ethnic and religious minorities. Three incidents in particular have led me to the inescapable conclusion that Mr. Trump lacks the temperament, self-discipline and judgment required to be president.

Collins then lists her three incidents — Trump mocking a reporter for his disability, Trump stating that a judge born in Indiana couldn’t possibly be fair to him because of his “Mexican heritage,” and Trump’s attacks on the Gold Star parents who appeared at the Democratic National Convention. Each time, says Collins, she “waited in vain for Mr. Trump to retract his words.” Then she begins painting a larger picture.

I am also deeply concerned that Mr. Trump’s lack of self-restraint and his barrage of ill-informed comments would make an already perilous world even more so. It is reckless for a presidential candidate to publicly raise doubts about honoring treaty commitments with our allies. Mr. Trump’s tendency to lash out when challenged further escalates the possibility of disputes spinning dangerously out of control.

I had hoped that we would see a “new” Donald Trump as a general-election candidate — one who would focus on jobs and the economy, tone down his rhetoric, develop more thoughtful policies and, yes, apologize for ill-tempered rants. But the unpleasant reality that I have had to accept is that there will be no “new” Donald Trump, just the same candidate who will slash and burn and trample anything and anyone he perceives as being in his way or an easy scapegoat. Regrettably, his essential character appears to be fixed, and he seems incapable of change or growth.

Pretty harsh, but this was actually the kindest towards Trump of the three documents released this week. Which brings us to the next one, from the foreign policy experts.

 

National security officials’ letter

This extraordinary letter also starts off (after an introductory paragraph explaining who the group is) with a blanket statement: “None of us will vote for Donald Trump.” Once again, these are all Republicans, not some partisan sniping by Democrats. This letter minces no words whatsoever.

From a foreign policy perspective, Donald Trump is not qualified to be President and Commander-in-Chief. Indeed, we are convinced that he would be a dangerous President and would put at risk our country’s national security and well-being.

Most fundamentally, Mr. Trump lacks the character, values, and experience to be President. He weakens U.S. moral authority as the leader of the free world. He appears to lack basic knowledge about and belief in the U.S. Constitution, U.S. laws, and U.S. institutions, including religious tolerance, freedom of the press, and an independent judiciary.

The letter ends by first explaining all the qualities and temperament necessary for any president (willing to listen to advisors, acknowledge errors, be disciplined, etc.). Then it tears into how far Trump falls short:

In our judgment, Mr. Trump has none of these critical qualities. He is unable or unwilling to separate truth from falsehood. He does not encourage conflicting views. He lacks self-control and acts impetuously. He cannot tolerate personal criticism. He has alarmed our closest allies with his erratic behavior. All of these are dangerous qualities in an individual who aspires to be President and Commander-in-Chief, with command of the U.S. nuclear arsenal.

We understand that many Americans are profoundly frustrated with the federal government and its inability to solve pressing domestic and international problems. We also know that many have doubts about Hillary Clinton, as do many of us. But Donald Trump is not the answer to America’s daunting challenges and to this crucial election. We are convinced that in the Oval Office, he would be the most reckless President in American history.

C’mon, guys, tell us what you really think! Sorry, but at some point you just have to laugh at the language fellow Republicans are using against their own candidate. This letter lays out one targeted idea — Trump being unfit to handle foreign policy — while the next brings a very different focus.

 

Begging the RNC to bail on Trump

The third letter is entirely political in nature, since it was addressed to Reince Priebus and the Republican National Committee. It begs the R.N.C. to ditch Trump in no uncertain terms, from the second paragraph onwards.

Given the catastrophic impact that Donald Trump’s losing presidential campaign will have on down-ballot Senate and House races, we urge you to immediately suspend all discretionary RNC support for Trump and focus the entirety of the RNC’s available resources on preserving the GOP’s congressional majorities.

They have already given up on winning the White House, obviously, and are now terrified that they are facing a disastrous landslide in November.

We believe that Donald Trump’s divisiveness, recklessness, incompetence, and record-breaking unpopularity risk turning this election into a Democratic landslide, and only the immediate shift of all available RNC resources to vulnerable Senate and House races will prevent the GOP from drowning with a Trump-emblazoned anchor around its neck.

This should not be a difficult decision, as Donald Trump’s chances of being elected president are evaporating by the day.

“Evaporating by the day” — that has a nice ring to it, don’t you think? The letter then lists all the reasons why Trump has already “alienated millions of voters of all parties,” most of which are specific but also including a few catchall items on the list, such as: “Exposing his total ignorance of basic foreign policy matters,” and: “Deliberately and repeatedly lying about scores of issues, large and small.” They even slam Trump for not releasing his tax forms, then continue in the same vein.

Those recent outrages have built on his campaign of anger and exclusion, during which he has mocked and offended millions of voters, including the disabled, women, Muslims, immigrants, and minorities. He also has shown dangerous authoritarian tendencies, including threats to ban an entire religion from entering the country, order the military to break the law by torturing prisoners, kill the families of suspected terrorists, track law-abiding Muslim citizens in databases, and use executive orders to implement other illegal and unconstitutional measures.

Since it’s a letter with a political focus, it then turns to the dismal polling they’ve been seeing:

[C]urrent polling gives Trump barely a 15 percent chance of being elected president in November. That polling projects a potential 350 electoral vote blowout for Hillary Clinton, including a sweep of every battleground state from Florida to Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Colorado, Virginia, and North Carolina. Trump’s across-the-board collapse has put even Republican bastions like Georgia and Arizona in play.

That’s a pretty apocalyptic statement for the beginning of August! It’s understandable when people get nervous a few weeks out from an election, but the general election has barely begun, and these Republicans are already worried about Hillary Clinton getting 350 electoral votes.

The letter then itemizes Trump’s refusal to support members of the Republican Party, which includes things like calling an “incumbent Republican Senator a ‘loser’ to his Senate peers,” and “Repeating his false and outlandish claims that yet another Senator’s father played some role in the Kennedy assassination.” This leads them to an extraordinary conclusion — again, it is only early August.

In summary, every dollar spent by the RNC on Donald Trump’s campaign is a dollar of donor money wasted on the losing effort of a candidate who has actively undermined the GOP at every turn. Rather than throwing good money after bad, the RNC should shift its strategy and its resources to convince voters not to give Hillary Clinton the “blank check” of a Democrat-controlled Congress to advance her big government agenda.

 

Rick Wilson minces no words

All of that was pretty scathing, we’ve got to admit. Republican-on-Republican violence is never pretty to watch, to put it mildly. But when reading an article in Salon which detailed how many extreme rightwing strategists and media types have denounced Trump, the following really stood out. We close today with the thoughts of Rick Wilson, “GOP strategist.”

I have opposed Trump from the first day of his wretched, crapulous campaign. I have opposed Trump when his clownish minions called my clients seeking to have me fired. I have opposed The Donald when his slavish of Trumpbart stooges ran story after story attacking me, and unleashed their fever-swamp yokels on my email, my phone and my family.

I will continue to oppose Trump, implacably and unceasingly.

I will not bend. I will not cease this fight. I will never embrace this thuggish, venal, gibbering psychotic, and I will not countenance those who do. I don’t care if I’m the last Republican in America standing to resist this man, but with almighty God as my witness, I will not vote for Donald Trump.

This Dad-Daughter Conversation Will Make You Want To Call Your Parents http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32323 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32323#comments Sat, 13 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32323

At some point in your life, you realize your parents are only human: They make mistakes and are probably more like you than you ever recognized growing up. 

In the latest installment from “The And,” an interactive documentary series about relationships and familial love, a single dad and daughter from the Netherlands sit down for a heartfelt conversation that touches on their similarities and the challenges they’ve faced together.

The father, Jhein, admits that it worries him that Rosa, the daughter he’s raised on his own since the divorce, is so similar to him. 

“You’re so much like me and I haven’t made it easy for myself in my life,” he says. “I see you going that way, too, and I don’t want that for you. When I worry about this, I hope you’ll reassure me that it’s OK that you are the way you are.”

“It’s OK,” Rosa sweetly reminds her dad. 

Watch Jhein and Rosa’s full conversation in the video above.

Donald Trump Says He’ll Get Into Heaven If He Becomes President http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32319 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32319#comments Fri, 12 Aug 2016 06:43:40 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32319

Does the stairway to heaven pass through the Oval Office? 

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump joked on Thursday that winning the White House could be his ticket through the Pearly Gates.

“I figure it’s probably, maybe the only way I’m going to get to heaven,” he told a group of evangelical pastors in Florida. 

In recent weeks, Trump has been losing a number of key demographics, but most polls show he is still winning the evangelical vote. An NBC poll released this week found 71 percent of evangelicals plan to vote for Trump compared to 22 percent for Hillary Clinton.  

Trump called on the pastors at Thursday’s meeting to help get out the vote, saying it would be “the most important election that our country’s ever had” for religious voters. 

“So go out and spread the word and once I get in, I will do my thing that I do very well,” he said.

 

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.

5 Strategies To Help You Close The Confidence Gap http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32316 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32316#comments Fri, 12 Aug 2016 06:43:09 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32316 A good friend of mine recently lost her job. It was an unexpected move by her company to close her division in advance of a new CEO taking the helm at year-end. My friend, who I’ll call Sara, had always prided herself on her diligent work ethic and loyalty. She told me, “I was always so proud that I could say I’ve never been fired. Now I can’t say that anymore.” The hardest part for me, a friend both coaching her through the toughest times and simply trying to just be there for her, is seeing her loss of confidence. She’s a talented professional and other companies quickly lined up to interview her, but she found moving on difficult. She called me in tears after one interview and said, “I just don’t think I’m qualified to do this.” It was for a position that she is eminently qualified to hold, but her confidence struggles were preventing her from seeing that as a viable path.

As you reflect on your own career and life path, what are some of the things that you wish you would have said, done, or tried, but didn’t? Something held you back. I was two years into my law career when my mentor recommended me for a board position at a local non-profit. I had no idea what that meant, but it sounded like something too lofty for a twenty-six year old. I joined the board and literally said nothing for six months. I attended every meeting, took notes, and had lots of things to say, but I held myself back and stayed quiet. I’m sure my fellow board members wondered more than once whether I could physically speak.

Whether you want to stand up to your annoying sister-in-law or just raise your hand more in meetings, here are five strategies to practice to close the confidence gap:

Take action. One of my favorite phrases is “action conquers fear.” Action also conquers ruminating, inaction and feeling stuck. When Sara didn’t hear back from one of her interviews by the stated deadline, she was sure she didn’t advance to the next round. And then she got stuck, ruminating and catastrophizing about all of the potential scenarios that could result. I told her that in order to mentally move on, she needed to start exploring other companies and sending out more résumés. Nothing builds confidence like taking action.

Challenge self-doubt & setbacks with CORE thinking. Building confidence requires getting outside of your comfort zone and experiencing failure and setbacks (see more on that below). When a setback happens, how do you explain its cause? Based on the work of Dr. Martin Seligman, pessimistic thinkers often get stuck explaining failure in a personal way (“I’m all to blame”), a pervasive way (“this thing is going to impact lots of areas of my life”), and a permanent way (“this adversity is going to be around a long time – I can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel”). To flip that, practice CORE thinking:

C (CONTROL): Ask yourself where you have a measure of control, influence or leverage in the situation.
O (OTHERS): What resources do you have that you can draw on – what people can help?
R (REACH): How can I limit the impact of this adversity so that it doesn’t influence other areas of my life?
E (EVALUATE & EMBRACE): First evaluate the root causes of the challenge that’s impacting you, then “embrace the suck.” An adversity is there to teach you something, and it will end at some point. Figure out what this challenge is here to teach you.

Build a growth mindset. According to Stanford psychologist Dr. Carol Dweck, people with growth mindsets feel that ability can be developed through effort and learning, and they see failure as an inevitable result of trying new things. One way to build a growth mindset is to give and get feedback in the right way. The type of feedback that builds a growth mindset is focused on effort (“You tried so hard at that presentation”) rather than talent (“You’re so smart”). In addition, make sure you’re keeping track of your wins – what are the successes you have had, big and small?

Be authentic. Do you show up to work each day as the real you, or are you a version of you? When I talk about how I burned out at the end of my law career, one of the biggest realizations I had was that I was showing up to work as “Paula the lawyer” and leaving the best of who I was (including my strengths) at home. Interestingly, it took a group of drill sergeants to help me reconnect with the most authentic version of myself. They taught me that vulnerability is not weakness; rather, it is courage in its purest form.

Get comfortable with the failure/struggle/mastery loop. If you want to get better at something, you’re likely going to fail. Actually, if you’re pushing yourself hard enough, you should fail. When that happens, you need to process the failure in a way that allows you to get back up and try again – you need to have resilience. Taking good risks can be especially hard for women as it means allowing ourselves to be imperfect, facing potential displeasure from authority figures or loved ones, and it can be uncomfortable being the center of attention.

Confidence is what allows you to show up as you at work and in life. One of my favorite quotes from Dr. Brené Brown is this: “Nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as believing that you’re standing on the outside of your life looking in and wondering what it would be like if you had the courage to show up and let yourself be seen.”

You Won’t Believe How Some Doctors Talk To Fat Patients http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32315 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32315#comments Fri, 12 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32315 It’s no secret that body-shaming is a widespread, damaging problem, especially on the internet, where bullies can spew hate and hurtful commentary from the cowardly comfort of their keyboards.

But sometimes, those types of comments come from people who are supposed to be the most understanding and supportive, including parents, significant others and, perhaps most disturbingly, medical professionals.

According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, many patients who are obese voice concerns about medical professionals’ perceptions of their weight, which can lead to a delay in seeking medical care.

Twitter users worldwide came together to share their experiences on Thursday, tweeting in solidarity under the hashtag #FatSideStories ― and an alarming number of them were health care-related.

Twitter user @yrfatfriend, the account that started the conversation, told BuzzFeed that the goal of the hashtag is to empower people. “#FatSideStories lifts up real stories of fat people and asks, ‘Is this really who we want to be? Is this the world you want to create for the fat people you know and love?’”

Below, read some heartbreaking experiences real people said they endured in a place where they are at their most vulnerable: the doctor’s office.

No Prison For Colorado Student Who Raped ‘Helpless’ Freshman http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32311 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32311#comments Thu, 11 Aug 2016 06:43:41 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32311

Austin Wilkerson told friends of a fellow University of Colorado-Boulder student who drank too much at a party that he’d take care of her. Instead, he raped her as she drifted out of consciousness and lied about what he had done.

Wilkerson, 22, convicted of sexual assault of a helpless victim and unlawful sexual contact, faced a possible prison sentence of four years to life for the March 2014 attack on the freshman woman. But a judge in Boulder, Colorado, on Wednesday sentenced him to two years on work release and 20 years’ probation.

“I’ve struggled, to be quite frank, with the idea of, ‘Do I put him in prison?’” said Judge Patrick Butler, according to the Daily Camera newspaper. “I don’t know that there is any great result for anybody. Mr. Wilkerson deserves to be punished, but I think we all need to find out whether he truly can or cannot be rehabilitated.”

The lenient punishment, reminiscent of the six-month sentence given to Stanford University athlete Brock Turner in June for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman, adds to the perception that the criminal justice system too often fails to consider the trauma and lifelong effects experienced by rape victims, said Brie Franklin, executive director of the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault.

“We are disappointed to see, yet again, that the impact on the perpetrator, who chose to commit a crime against another person, is being considered over the impact on the victim, who did not have a choice in the matter,” Franklin told The Huffington Post.

Turner’s light sentence helped propel national outrage against the judge who imposed the punishment and its message of making excuses for serious criminal assault. 

Supporters of Wilkerson, as in the California case of Turner, appealed for leniency. Wilkerson’s friends and family said the crime was a “traumatic incident” for him. They asked the judge to consider Wilkerson’s future, and said he “will go far in this world if not defined by this one incident.”

Wilkerson’s victim drank too much celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, and Wilkerson told her friends he’d take care of her. Instead, he “isolated and raped the half-conscious victim,” prosecutors said in court documents.

Wilkerson admitted to investigators he’d made advances to the victim that night, “but that she rebuffed him each time, and that he felt ‘pissed off’ and called her a ‘fucking bitch,’” according to court documents.

Wilkerson told the jury that the woman wasn’t inebriated and that their sexual activity was consensual. His defense argued that the victim filed a rape claim to cover up for a drop in her grades. 

Following his conviction in May, probation officers recommended a sentence with no prison time, arguing Wilkerson was remorseful. Prosecutors fiercely disagreed, writing in a pre-sentencing memo that Wilkerson’s changing story was evidence he hadn’t seriously accepted his guilt. 

District Attorney Stanley Garrett pointed to harm to the victim in a memo to the court, arguing “it is objectively offensive to consider as ‘punishment enough’ the fact that the defendant will have to pursue a career as a biochemist instead of as a medical doctor.” 

“If more than a quarter of people in this community were killed by a drunk driver, or assaulted or menaced during an invasion of their home, the community would call for a stronger message than a sentence of probation with no punitive sanction to effectuate respect for the law, the deterrence of crime, and the protection of the public,” Garnett wrote. “Sexual assault should be no different. Murderers go to prison. Armed robbers go to prison. Rapists go to prison. This is what justice requires.”

Why Do Teens Cut and What Can Parents Do To Help? http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32307 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32307#comments Thu, 11 Aug 2016 06:43:09 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32307 McLean Hospital Guest Blogger
Michael R. Hollander, PhD

2016-08-11-1470883706-9834237-HollanderHeadshot198Oct1115.jpgApproximately 14 to 18 percent of high school students and between 12 to 35 percent of college students in the United States engage in some form of self-injurious behavior at least once. The age of onset often occurs in early adolescence, between the ages of 11 and 14.

While self-harm is of serious concern for parents, families, and teachers, it’s important to know that when the right approach and treatment is provided in a timely manner, this behavior is highly treatable. But kids who self-harm need treatment right away. Giving in to pleas for more time and delaying treatment can lead to further, more serious injury. While we often hear about the number of teens who engage in this behavior, the majority who are treated appropriately can go on to lead happy, healthy lives.

Is an act of self-harm a form of suicide? Can it lead to suicide?

This type of self-harm is known as non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI), which by definition is the deliberate, intentional damage to one’s body tissue without the intention of dying. There is no intention of suicide, however, there can be a high correlation with suicide if self-injurious behavior goes untreated.

Why do adolescents cut or engage in other self-harm activities?

It’s most often a way of trying to manage emotions. For example, when teens cut themselves, they will usually experience a sense of calmness. It also appears that the vast majority of teens who self-injure are those who have a high degree of self-criticalness and self-loathing. Self-injury helps them to contain their emotions. Or conversely, if they feel numb and empty, they use self-injury to feel something.

A small percentage of teens use self-injury for avoidance or to create a distraction. An even smaller percentage use it to get attention. And for a very small group of kids, they use it to punish themselves because they feel they don’t deserve to live, breathe, or take up space. They may cut themselves in the context of an extreme emotional situation.

This is a group of highly-emotional and sensitive adolescents who frequently feel things more intensely than their peers, but that doesn’t necessarily distinguish who would engage in self-injury. This type of behavior is about not having the skill set to modulate emotions in conjunction with a high degree of self-criticalness. There are other factors that can come into play as well, such as co-occurring mental illnesses including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, substance use, and/or a history of trauma.

What are the most effective ways to respond to an incident of self-harm behavior?

When consulting with parents or speaking to community groups, these are the main points I make:

  • It’s important to not overreact. Try to assume a matter of fact approach, without judgment. Try to stay open minded and validate the teen’s emotions. Validation is key to keeping an open dialogue.
  • Get an assessment of whether or not the behavior is self-injurious in order to manage one’s feelings or if the intention is to commit suicide.
  • Assuming the behavior is non-suicidal, I suggest that parents start with their primary care doctor to help find a therapist who is highly trained and has a track record of treating adolescents with self-injurious behavior.
  • Elements of successful treatment for self-injury include individual therapy with a skills component such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), which is a type of cognitive therapy that helps one increase emotional and cognitive regulation by improving coping skills. It’s also important to include family skills training and family therapy.

Trump On Second Amendment Backlash: ‘I Think It’s A Good Thing For Me’ http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32305 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32305#comments Wed, 10 Aug 2016 06:43:39 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32305

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Tuesday night he’s benefitting from the controversy he created earlier in the day by suggesting “the Second Amendment people” might forcefully stop Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton from appointing Supreme Court justices.

After an outcry from Democrats and gun-control advocates over remarks that appeared to obliquely encourage violence, Trump said he didn’t mean to suggest any harm. The real villains, he said on Fox News, were the media.

“I have to say, in terms of politics, there is few things, and I happen to think that if [the media] did even bring this up, I think it’s a good thing for me,” Trump told Sean Hannity.

“Because it’s going to tell people more about me with respect to the Second Amendment … because Hillary Clinton wants to essentially abolish the Second Amendment.”

Trump, his poll numbers swooning after a week of self-inflicted missteps and controversies, sparked a fresh wave of condemnation Tuesday at a rally in Wilmington, North Carolina.

“If she gets to pick her judges ― nothing you can do, folks,” Trump told supporters. “Although, the Second Amendment people. Maybe there is. I don’t know.”

The comments, which sounded very much off the cuff, quickly raised questions about why Trump seemed to be implying that gun owners were the only people who could do something about Clinton’s election.

To many people, it sounded like Trump was suggesting that the only way to prevent Clinton’s nomination of Supreme Court justices was to shoot her or her Supreme Court nominees.

Trump’s campaign quickly went into damage-control mode, with his surrogates and aides floating various explanations for the remark.

Trump told Hannity “there can be no other interpretation” to what he said other than as a commentary on Clinton’s position on the Second Amendment. “Even reporters have told me,” Trump said. “I mean, give me a break.”

The National Rifle Association, which has backed Trump since his nomination, defended his statements. However, the NRA ignored the most controversial part of Trump’s claims.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.

Nine Ways To Vote In The 2016 Election http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32302 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32302#comments Wed, 10 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32302 With less than 100 days to the U.S. presidential election, the 24/7 news cycle feeds us an endless set of considerations, fair and balanced — or not — on the strengths and weaknesses of the two candidates in the race for the White House. Many voters – decided or not – feel tossed around by every new poll, statistic and fact, interview, press conference and community activity about the candidates’ platforms, positions and opinions. How can we get off the minute-to-minute emotional roller coaster and find some inner clarity and wisdom that supports our best choice?

In my new co-authored book arriving in September, Organize Your Emotions, Optimize Your Life, we propose a new model of the human psyche that is an adult version of the Academy Award®-winning Pixar movie, Inside Out, positing that the human psyche has nine internal life forces–which we hear as inner “voices,” each with its distinct agendas and emotions. I arrived at this model while doing my own deep personal work, then validated it with hundreds of clients who have learned to tune into their nine internal voices, which we call the inner family. Every morning, I personally do a roll call that starts the day fresh with new insights and more calm and equanimity.

Let me show you how you, too, can access the nine members of your inner family to help you make decisions – like who to vote for in the 2016 election.

1. First let’s meet Autonomy’s voice. This life force is the captain of the proverbial human ship. It is concerned most about marching to our own drummers, and being authentic and free to make the choices which best serve our interests. As Sammy Davis Jr. sang beautifully, “I gotta be me.” Autonomy is prone to rebelling when others, particularly when those who do not “get us” or share our values, tell us what to do. In this election season, Autonomy has been getting a lot of attention as evidenced by the rebellion against establishment candidates. Autonomy asks:

Which candidate is most aligned with my values and interests? Which candidate will have the courage to stay true to the values aligned with mine?
 
2. Now onto the voice of Confidence, dedicated to being strong, competent and confident. Given that the role of president is perhaps the most complex and challenging job of our times, the Confidence voice is often the deciding voice on whom to vote for. Hope and optimism spring from confidence in oneself and others relative to the challenges ahead. The Confidence voice asks:

Which candidate has the most strength and conviction to navigate and negotiate huge complexity, conflict, and often chaos? Which candidate has the most competence, e.g. knowledge, skill, and track record, relevant to leading the U.S. and the multifaceted operations of the executive branch in turbulent times?

3. The next voice is the Standard Setter, responsible for performance and achievement, setting ambitious goals and meeting them. It also tracks external standards to make sure we get respect and validation. It can be a hard taskmaster and tough critic of self and others, and is skilled at persuasion. It makes us persist through ups and downs to accomplish big things. It cares about what others think and wears whatever mask is needed to get social validation and approval, and in this case votes. The Standard Setter asks:

Which candidate is the most ambitious? Which is the most inspiring? Which candidate will perform at the highest level? Which candidate will navigate and persevere to reach the best outcome possible?

4. Let’s tune into the Relational voice who exists to serve others and puts others first, showing genuine empathy and concern. The Relational helps others thrive and perform at their best. Having high social and emotional intelligence, the Relational is a team-player and knows how to build win-win relationships, collaborations, and partnerships. Being loyal and trustworthy are high priorities. The Relational asks:

Which candidate is the best leader of people and teams? Which candidate has the best ability to connect and empathize with diverse interests and challenges? Which candidate inspires the most trust?

5. Enter the voice of the Adventurer, the fearless explorer, tuning into opportunities, realities, and surprises in the external world with an open and curious mind. Enjoying novelty, the Adventurer is inquisitive, welcoming and embracing change and risk. It’s ever-ready supply of curious energy is a vital source of resilience and learning when things don’t go well, helping us recover and adapt quickly. The Adventurer asks:

Which candidate has the most open, curious, learning and flexible mind? Which candidate is willing to take the right risks at the right times? Which candidate is the most resilient and adaptable?

6. Let’s check in with the Creative voice which loves to generate, to create and invent. It functions well in chaos and enjoys spontaneity, finding brilliant ideas just in time. Given that what got us here won’t lift us above intractable problems, the Creative voice is needed for its out-of-the-box approaches and innovations, with a good dose of creative humor. The Creative asks:

Which candidate is the most creative, or the most adept at unleashing the nation’s creative forces, to invent new solutions and turn them into innovations that change the world?

7. The Executive Manager is the voice of your inner organizer, planner, analyst and strategist. Juggling many balls in parallel, the Executive Manager can stay clear and calm in the face of an overwhelming volume of demands. It can synthesize massive amounts of data into an integrated solution. Getting to the bottom line, it can distil a situation into its bullet points, bringing order to chaos over and over and over. The Executive Manager asks:

Which candidate has the mental powers to handle overwhelming demands? Which candidate is most able to navigate complex situations to arrive at clear strategies and practical steps?

8. Second to last is the voice of the Body Regulator, focused on safety, stability, and balance, including physical and mental health. The Body Regulator is down-to-earth and grounded. It values sustainability, for self, others, and our planet. A vital balance to the Adventurer, the Body Regulator seeks equilibrium in contrast to the Adventurer’s love of disequilibrium, change and risk.

In fact, there are many inbuilt yin/yang balances among the inner family. For example the self-first interest of Autonomy vs. other-first interest of the Relational, the spontaneity of the Creative vs. the discipline of the Executive Manager. Humans are ever balancing polarized and conflicting perspectives, inside and outside.

The Body Regulator asks:

Which candidate is the most steady and grounded? Which candidate is able to bring stability and balance to domestic and foreign affairs? Which candidate values health and sustainability, both needing a big upgrade?

9. Last is the voice of the Meaning Maker, which tunes into meaning and purpose, zooming in to consider the import of a small moment or zooming out to find patterns and make sense of large moments. It channels the greater good, the transcendent dimension, asking “what is the larger lesson of this situation.” The Meaning Maker is the wise mentor, mature sage, and inner coach, nudging us to consider all perspectives and then find the wisdom needed for this moment. The Meaning Maker asks:

Which candidate is most able to find and communicate the transcendent purpose and wisdom needed for any situation?

Now that we have considered nine dimensions of being human, which voice(s) is most guiding your vote?

Ask yourself: Is that the best or only voice for me to listen to, to make my best decision?

On Election Day, we as voters take a leap of faith. This inner family exercise may bring clarity and wisdom on the choice you decide to make.

An Open Letter to My Adolescent Daughter http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32301 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32301#comments Wed, 10 Aug 2016 06:43:07 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32301

This article first appeared on QuietRev.com

Dear Grace,

Last night, you had a sleepover with a new friend from your hockey team. You were so excited: it was your first overnight at her house and the start of your spring break from seventh grade. Dad dropped you off while I was at your brother’s practice, and that was that. Or so we thought until the phone startled both Daddy and me out of a sound sleep at nearly midnight. You would’ve laughed to have seen us fumbling around in the dark, trying to figure out what was happening, confused by the ringing phone. I admit I was scared. Who was calling at this hour? Was someone in the hospital?  

“Mom?” Your voice was small. “I threw up. Will you come and get me?”  

“Of course.”

I was already out of bed before I hung up the phone. I put on sweatpants and headed straight for the car. It was a quick ride, and you and your friend were waiting for me on her front porch. When you slid into the passenger’s seat, I leaned over and kissed the side of your head. You were silent. As we headed home, I thought about the nights during your colicky infancy, when more than once I put you, crying loudly, in the backseat and drove you around the deserted neighborhood until you fell asleep. Now, you were next to me rather than behind me, but my anxious fretting felt familiar. Like then, I didn’t totally understand what was going on, and I just wanted to know you were okay.

“What happened?” I asked without taking my eyes off the road.

“I’m sorry, Mom. I had brownies in science, fries and popcorn after school, then Shake Shack for dinner, and I just felt really sick, and I threw up.”

I nodded, my eyes still not meeting yours.

“I’m really sorry,” you said softly.  

“Stop apologizing, Grace.” I reached over and squeezed your thigh. You were wearing running shorts and your legs were bare. It was nearly spring.  

We arrived home and went into the kitchen for a glass of water. Standing by the fridge, I wondered when you’d become almost my exact height. Your eyes—wet, rimmed in red—stared at me over the edge of your water glass. There was a flare of desperate longing in them that reminded me of the time when I was a girl living in Paris. Every morning, your Nana would walk aunt Hilary and me three blocks to the little French school we attended. Nana would leave us there, inside the big green metal gate, by the hutch that held large sleepy rabbits. Several times, I recall feeling an intense need for Nana to stay, but I always said goodbye, waving to her as fear galloped in my chest. I remember standing in the courtyard, counting in my head, picturing Nana arriving at home, walking up the stairs, entering our apartment. I could see her in my mind’s eye, and I felt a physical pressure in my chest, sensing that whatever tied us together was unspooling as she walked away from me.  

“I think I just really missed you tonight,” you said quietly as you re-filled your water glass. “I don’t really know why.”

I removed the glass from your hand and put it on the kitchen counter, pulling you into a hug. As I held you against me, your back rose and fell as you took deep breaths. I felt like I was kything with you, embodying a concept from Madeleine L’Engle’s novel A Wrinkle in Time that your brother always refers to—the telepathic link that Meg and Calvin share.

In that moment, I felt many of your emotions breaking over my head like a wave: anxiety and fear, an overwhelming sense of relief and gratitude mingled with a worry that you still needed something—home—as well as someone—me—so much. The day before, we’d learned that one of your best friends since birth, your god sister, was likely headed to boarding school in September. That made the notion of your own going away for high school, something we have talked about for years, very concrete. And though you seemed happy to have this new friend from hockey, the relationship was still unfamiliar, and you were already exhausted from long nights of studying and schoolwork.

All of these things, I was sure, led to you feeling ill at your friend’s house. And none of those things needed to be said. I understood them all too well. Instead, I simply stood there, holding you, our breathing falling into sync.  

Finally, you pulled away, whispering, “I love you, Mom.” Together we headed upstairs to your bedroom. I tucked you into bed, pulling your comforter around your shoulders. “The sheets feel so cool and nice,” you murmured, closing your eyes. I smoothed the hair back from your forehead. “Do I feel warm?” you asked.

“Cool as a cuke,” I said quietly, thinking about how many times Nana had used those exact words to comfort me when she felt my forehead. I leaned down to kiss you on the cheek. “I love you too, Gracie girl.” You turned on your side with a deep sigh.  

As I walked out of your room, I thought, “How long will this intense identification go on? How long will I be a source of calm, able to make your fears go away, and how long will we be so close that I am intimately drawn into your anxieties and emotions?” The double helix of identification is complicated, and while I don’t know how many more months or years it will last, I know it won’t exist forever.

I can’t help but wonder if this is the last gasp of attachment before you push off for the other shore, into young adulthood, away from me. I have to believe that some of my ability to sense the turbulence inside your heart will remain. I hope that so too will remain the way my arms, and my presence, are enough to soothe a little bit of your turmoil. I will certainly always be here, whenever you may need me. I promise.

Twitter Users Hilariously Troll Trump With #ManyPeopleAreSaying Meme http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32298 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32298#comments Tue, 09 Aug 2016 06:43:38 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32298

Donald Trump likes to explain his wild accusations by claiming “many people are saying” whatever it is he’s claiming. Now, “many people are saying” things back at him.

After the GOP presidential candidate used the phrase on Twitter to blame rival Hillary Clinton for the death of an Iranian scientist, the #ManyPeopleAreSaying hashtag began trending on both Twitter and Facebook.

Trump can’t be happy about what many people are saying now. Here’s a sample of the new meme:  

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.

As The Sunset Of Life Approaches http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32295 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32295#comments Tue, 09 Aug 2016 06:43:09 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32295 I am becoming ever more aware of my “perishability.” When we are children, we worry that our parents will die. As we get older, we worry that our spouse will die. But when is it that we start wondering about our own departure from this world? For me, it started when my first parent died, but it really, truly, hit me when my second parent died. I felt that I became an orphan. Alone in this world. No one there to protect me. It is a strange feeling, especially since I was well-off financially, many times more secure than my parents. And I was in my fifties already. Nonetheless, having them around, regardless of how old or financially poorer they were, gave a feeling of security, of protection. With them gone, I felt alone and realized: I am the next in line.

This feeling of being the next one to go is reinforced by several factors. When you are working, you are too busy, struggling and handling life to have time to think about death. Retired, you have ample time to think about it and to feel the pain of old age. You are reminded of it every morning when you look at all the pills you are supposed to take. You are reminded of how old you are when you need a new hip or kidney because your body has aged to the point that its parts need replacement.

If you still do not feel that the sun of your life is setting, look at old pictures. How many people in them are still alive? When you open your contact list, how many have passed away? How many of your friends have you accompanied on their last trip to the cemetery?

As you become aware that this is it, life is coming to an end, you ask yourself what life is all about. What did I do all my life? What was the purpose of me living?

If I focus on what life WAS about, I think the answer for me is clear: It was a long list of problem solving. There was no day I did not have to solve some problem. Some were small and insignificant, some I thought were critical, but, in retrospect, what I thought was critical then I now find was not worth the time and energy I put into it.

So is that’s what life is about: Solving problems in chasing the rainbow; Trying to realize some vision or mission we developed for ourselves, whether it is to be a rich man or woman, or to save the world?

As I look at what my life was, I realize I was building a sand castle. After I am gone my work will be eroded and washed away by the realities of life’s demands. People will have their interpretation of what is needed and redo my castle to reflect their needs or values.

So is this it? Life is building sand castles?

Not so. Not at all.

When was I really alive? Not when I was solving problems, no matter how successfully. All my achievements and happiness were short lived. There was always another higher mountain to climb. I spent all my life climbing mountains that existed only in my head.

That is what life was, but what SHOULD life have been, I wonder? When was I truly alive?

When I loved. Those are the minutes that really count and I am not referring to romantic love. Yes, it has its moments of happiness, and falling in love, at least in my life, was pain and mostly belongs to the problem-solving realm. The love I am referring to is doing something of value for others, something that really mattered to them, when I gave of myself unconditionally, with all my heart. When I added value to people’s lives. These experiences gave me energy, prolonged my life. Fulfilled me. I got more than what I gave.

Life is spent in the head solving problems, but should be spent in the heart giving of ourselves to solve other people problems. Prolonging other people’s lives prolonged mine.

If you want to live life to the fullest, not feel you wasted this gift, filling the heart is what life should be about; To serve others unconditionally, with all your heart, enrich others’ lives to make your own life worth living.

Just thinking,

Ichak Kalderon Adizes

This Is Exactly How You Should Adjust Your Sleep Schedule If You Know It Will Be Changing http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32294 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32294#comments Tue, 09 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32294

Eager school-bound children aren’t the only ones who may need to reset their sleep schedules throughout the year. Many of us take advantage of summer’s longer daylight hours to travel and stay out late, inflating our social calendars until they’re bursting at the seams. With fall around the corner, most of us could benefit from a revised bedtime, but making that change doesn’t necessarily come easy to all.

Which raises the question: How should we go about adjusting our sack time if we know our sleep schedule will be significantly changing? Long gone are the days of our parents urging us to hit the sack a little earlier with each dwindling night of summer vacation ― so what now? And, come to think of it, did they even know what they were doing? (Science says, maybe not.) We’ve partnered with Sleep Number to get some answers and help you rest easy as your summer winds down.

1. Slow And Steady Doesn’t Necessarily Win The Race

When it comes to our sleep schedules, Rachel Kazez, a therapist based in Chicago who specializes in intensive therapy for adolescents, reminds us that consistency matters above all. While some bodies do best with very gradual adjustments ― say, waking up 15 minutes earlier at a time ― Kazez recommends making a more dramatic change of two hours at once, and focusing more on the morning itself and less on the previous night. “Instead of worrying the night before how much sleep you or your kids will get, focus on a consistent wake-up time,” Kazez explains.

But wait, doesn’t jumping ahead a full two hours sound like a big no-no? “I think this has to be up to personal style, but I know that for a lot of teens and for myself and other younger adults, the gradual change just prolongs the discomfort,” Kazez says. “The quicker one can get to consistency, the better,” she says. “It’s like daylight saving time, or taking a flight from Chicago to L.A. ― we don’t worry much about it, we just do it. Because our thoughts about it are, This is how things are now, instead of, Oh no, I have to make a change, it’s not such a big deal.”

2. Joy In The Morning

How can you lock a new ― and much earlier ― wake-up time? Kazez suggests families go on a fun, memory-making trip the week before school starts; not only does it require an earlier wake-up time for everyone, but the thrill of the trip makes the change a little easier. Don’t have time to squeeze in another trip before school starts? Try offering the kiddos an extra half-hour of their favorite pastime ― but only before 8 a.m. This will help motivate them to get up earlier and make the most of those prime morning hours.

Regardless of whether it’s you or the kids who need a little help to start the day, a mix of water and sunlight could be the cure-all, says psychologist Michael Breus, diplomate of the American Board of Sleep Medicine and fellow of The American Academy of Sleep Medicine. “Upon waking up, you should immediately strive to get hydrated by drinking a glass of water,” Breus says. He also recommends getting a healthy dose of sunshine, preferably outside, for about 15 minutes. “This will stop the melatonin faucet, which is flowing, to help [you] wake up.”

3. Power Down To Turn In

Please tell us you know by now that those ghostly, glowing screens that take up so much of our time are bad for your sleep health. Studies show that the blue light from LED screens can slow down or disturb the production of melatonin, the hormone that tells our body when it’s time to turn in for the night. Kazez recommends powering down all screens about an hour before bedtime.

In order to avoid LED-driven sleeplessness, fitness and wellness coach Angela Hubbs recommends keeping soft, orange lights around your home. Himalayan Salt Lamps, for example, emit negative ions, which have been shown to do everything from boost serotonin and energy levels to alleviate depression.

4. End The Self-Fulfilling-Prophecy Cycle Of Insomnia

What about those of us who get a bad night’s sleep because we obsess over the fear of getting a bad night’s sleep? Whether it’s prompted by the first day back to work after a two-week vacation, a new school year, or a high-stakes business meeting the next day, anxiety about needing a good night’s sleep can sometimes hinder your ability to get it. Enter the self-fulfilling prophecy, a prediction that directly or indirectly causes itself to come true.

End the cycle of insomnia by triggering relaxation with an anxiety-melting bedtime routine, including things like a lavender-scented soak, decaffeinated tea and a read that makes you snooze (but not on a device!). “When we are stressed, [or] going through major changes or life transitions, the first place we see symptoms is in sleep disruption,” says psychotherapist Fran Walfish, author of The Self-Aware Parent. “Create a routine that winds you down in the evening and sets the mood for sleep,” she says.

5. We’re Not All Created Sleepqually

It’s important to remember, Hubbs says, that we all have different physical needs and require different amounts of sleep ― something families can easily lose sight of when they’re without the structure imposed by the school year. “Children require more because they are still growing. Even during the summer, their routine should stay relatively the same.”

Dr. Breus says teenage sleep schedules are often the most difficult because their biological clocks naturally push them to stay up late and sleep later. “The number one thing I ask parents to do is to educate their kids on the importance of sleep to school and athletic performance, why going to bed earlier is not a punishment, but rather a strategy for them to do better in school.” It’s a sleep strategy for adults, too. “Enjoy every bit of the summer, but to the best of your ability keep your routine relatively similar in order to make any major transition an easier one.”

Just like diet and exercise, sleep is unique to each person and important for optimal health. Sleep Number® beds adjust on each side to your ideal level of firmness, comfort and support— your Sleep Number® setting. And when you add SleepIQ® technology you’ll know what to adjust for your best possible sleep.

We’ve Already Used Up Earth’s Resources For 2016 — And It’s Only August http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32291 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32291#comments Mon, 08 Aug 2016 06:43:37 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32291

We’ve failed again.

It’s less than eight months into 2016 and the ominous day is already nearly upon us: Earth Overshoot Day, previously known as Ecological Debt Day, is a reminder of the enormous toll we take on the Earth. 

The day marks the juncture when humanity’s demand for ecological resources exceeds what the planet can replenish annually. In 2016, it falls on Monday, which means people have already consumed an entire year’s worth of the world’s resources ― and we still have four months to go until the year’s end.

For the rest of 2016, we’ll be “living on resources borrowed from future generations,” as the World Wildlife Fund pointed out when we failed last year.

Troublingly, this year’s Overshoot Day is happening earlier than ever before. 

It’s “come around five days earlier than last year, a sign that humanity’s consumption of renewable natural resources continues to rise,” Global Footprint Network spokesman Sebastian Winkler told The Huffington Post. 

Humans have gone into “ecological debt” earlier and earlier in the year since the 1970s, according to data from the California-based think tank, which hosts Earth Overshoot Day every year.

In 1971, Overshoot Day fell on December 24. Ten years later, it had moved ahead by a month to mid-November. It’s arrived in August since 2005. 




GFN calculates Overshoot Day by comparing the planet’s biocapacity (the amount of ecological resources the Earth is able to generate in a year) with humanity’s demand for these resources, which include cropland, livestock, fish stock, the use of forests for timber, space for urban infrastructure and carbon emissions.

The world’s population currently consumes the equivalent of about 1.6 Earths every year, according to GFN. If population and consumption trends continue, “by the 2030s, we will need the equivalent of two Earths to support us,” the group says. “And of course, we only have one.”

This, however, is not a foregone conclusion.

Concerted efforts by individuals, institutions and nations worldwide to reduce humanity’s ecological footprint could profoundly alter this dire picture. If the global community reduced carbon emissions by 30 percent before 2030, for instance, Overshoot Day could be pushed back an entire month. 

“Globally, the longer we go on pretending that natural resources are unlimited, the faster we are jeopardizing the very capacity of our planet to provide us with the renewable resources that we need to feed, clothe, and shelter ourselves,” Winkler said. “Balancing how much renewable natural resources we use with how much is generated is paramount if mankind is to thrive on our beautiful planet. Each of us has the opportunity to participate: the choices we make every day as consumers and as citizens actively contribute to the world that we will leave future generations.” 

GFN has launched a #pledgefortheplanet campaign, aimed at encouraging individuals to reduce their ecological footprint. Scroll down for some easy ways you and your friends and family can take action today. Visit Overshoot Day’s website for more information.

This Simple Gratitude App Was Inspired By A 22-Year-Old Who Died Of Cancer http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32288 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32288#comments Mon, 08 Aug 2016 06:43:07 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32288 Shalin Shah died of cancer at the age of 22, but before his death he made sure to send a message to the world to cherish life for the gift that it is.

Shah made headlines in the weeks leading up to his death in May 2015 for a powerful blog published on The Huffington Post, titled “Thank You, Cancer.” In it, he described moving through his fear of death to realize his true purpose in life ― to inspire others to live their lives fully, even as his own was rapidly coming to an end.

The 22-year-old’s profound and precocious wisdom motivated his family to launch a hashtag on Twitter and Instagram, start a foundation in his name and publish a book of Shah’s quotes. 

Now with the help of software company Finoit Technologies, the Shah family has developed an app that aims to make gratitude a daily part of people’s lives. The app, available for download on Apple and Android devices, invites users to set a daily gratitude reminder “to take a moment and appreciate the beauty of life,” according to a release.

Think of it as a “gentle nudge,” the Shah family said, reminding users to slow down and give thanks.

“The app was developed to spread Shalin’s legacy,” his mother, Bharati Shah, told HuffPost. “Shalin’s wish was that if he could put a smile on someone’s face even for a minute it served his purpose in life.”

Shah was just 22 years old when he died from an aggressive form of soft tissue cancer in May 2015. A California native and recent college grad, Shah had just begun Peace Corps training in Peru when he became ill and was later diagnosed with  stage IV synovial sarcoma.

In the months that followed, Shah confronted his fear of death and developed a profound philosophy of life. In his blog, “Thank You, Cancer,” Shah wrote:

This is the purpose of my life I had been searching for all of my life — to inspire positive personal change in as many people as possible. In fact, that is the reason I’ve decided to write this article and go public with my story as well, I want to share my experience of realizing how beautiful the gift of life truly is in the hopes that it can inspire others who are going through tough times to appreciate the positive in life a little more. It is also the reason why I am, after all that I’ve been through in the past few months, thankful for terminal cancer.

The young man’s legacy lives on through the app, which features quotes from Shah’s writings and photographs of his travels abroad.

“We hope it will inspire many and spread positivity and good vibes all over the world,” the Shah family told HuffPost. “It’s a simple way to slow down and take a moment for yourself.”

Florida Gov. Rick Scott Tells Congress To ‘Show Up’ In Fight Against Zika http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32287 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32287#comments Mon, 08 Aug 2016 06:43:06 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32287 (Reuters) – Florida Republican Governor Rick Scott on Sunday accused the federal government of lagging in providing assistance to combat the spread of the Zika virus in a Miami-area neighborhood, the site of the first U.S. transmission of the virus.

Scott was speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press” about the neighborhood of Wynwood, where crews began aerial spraying on Thursday to kill virus-carrying mosquitoes. Zika can cause microcephaly, a rare but devastating birth defect.

The governor said state health authorities had identified 16 cases of Zika that were spread by local mosquitoes and criticized the federal government for failing to get more involved in battling the virus.

Scott said he asked U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Thomas Frieden earlier this week for 10,000 additional Zika preparedness kits.

“We still need the federal government to show up. The President and Congress have to work together. This is a national, international issue. It’s not just a Florida issue,” Scott said.

A representative for the CDC could not be immediately reached on Sunday.

President Barack Obama, a Democrat, earlier this week called on Congress to approve more funds to fight Zika’s spread in the United States, saying that money to fight the outbreak is rapidly running out.

Scott’s comments come a day after Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida stirred controversy by telling political news outlet Politico that pregnant women infected with Zika should not be able to get an abortion, even when there was evidence the baby might be born with severe microcephaly.

“I understand a lot of people disagree with my view – but I believe that all human life is worthy of protection of our laws,” Rubio, a former candidate for his party’s presidential nomination, told Politico. “But if I’m going to err, I’m going to err on the side of life.”

U.S. health regulators said on Friday that they had cleared the way for a trial of genetically modified mosquitoes in Florida that can reduce mosquito populations, potentially offering a new tool to fight the local spread of Zika and other viruses.

U.S. health officials have concluded that Zika infections in pregnant women can cause microcephaly, a birth defect marked by small head size that can lead to severe developmental problems in babies. The World Health Organization has said there is strong scientific consensus that Zika can also cause Guillain-Barre, a rare neurological syndrome that causes temporary paralysis in adults.

The connection between Zika and microcephaly first came to light last fall in Brazil, which has now confirmed more than 1,600 cases of microcephaly that it considers to be related to Zika infections in the mothers.

The Green Party Picks Its Presidential Ticket http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32284 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32284#comments Sun, 07 Aug 2016 06:43:40 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32284

HOUSTON ― The Green Party officially nominated Massachusetts physician and progressive activist Jill Stein as its presidential candidate on Saturday, also selecting human rights activist Ajamu Baraka as her running mate.

“We are what democracy looks like and we are what political revolution looks like,” Stein said accepting her party’s nomination. Stein also served as the party’s standard-bearer in 2012, when she received .9 percent of the national popular vote.

The radically progressive ticket faces a near-impossible climb electorally, as the Green Party only currently appears on ballots in 21 states and territories, though that number may grow as ballot registration deadlines are reached over the next month. However, the party has already been excluded from the ballot in Indiana, North Carolina and Oklahoma.

Green Party officials hope that historically high disapproval ratings of the two major parties’ candidates, buoyed by disillusioned supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) presidential campaign, will give the party its highest turnout yet. 

However, party officials and activists readily admit they don’t expect to win in November. In a questionnaire submitted to the party by Stein, the candidate wrote that she hoped to “Multiply the Green Party vote totals several-fold over 2012” and “Establish the Green Party as the preeminent progressive opposition party to the bipartisan establishment in Washington.”

Recent polling suggests Stein is poised to fare better in 2016 than in her first run and she is averaging roughly 4 percent in polls. However, her numbers have trailed the other major third-party candidate, Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson, who has averaged around 8 percent. Perhaps more notable for Green activists, a recent survey from McClatchy finds Stein pulling more support from voters under 30 than GOP nominee Donald Trump, coming in third with 16 percent.

“I want to recognize the people coming out of the Bernie Sanders campaign who helped launched a revolutionary political movement,” Stein told the assembled delegates on Saturday morning during remarks by the party’s presidential candidates. “[T]here will be no stopping you and no stopping us until we have achieved that change that we have all put on the platform together.”

On the day that Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton, the floodgates opened on our campaign.

“On the day that Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton, the floodgates opened on our campaign,” Stein said in her acceptance speech.

“Now that they got Bernie Sanders out of the way, they’re going to focus on us!” Iowa delegate Wendy Barth contended.  

Officials with the Stein campaign and Green Party spent far more of the convention appealing to Democrats disillusioned by Hillary Clinton’s campaign than Republican disillusioned by Donald Trump’s, a not very surprising development given the party’s liberal platform.

Convention speakers directly criticized Clinton far more often than Trump, attacking the Democratic nominee for her support of the 2003 invasion of Iraq and ties to Wall Street.

“We are hungry for a woman president,” said one delegate during the party’s roll call vote, “but not a war-hungry corporate criminal.”

Other speakers at the convention made more pointed appeals to wayward Sanders supporters. “The leader of your revolution has sold you out to a corporate shill warmonger,” one Green presidential candidate, Kent Philip Mesplay, told the crowd Saturday morning.   

YahNe Ndgo, a progressive activist and former Sanders supporter, accused the Vermont senator of “sheepdogging for Hillary and the Democrats in 2016.”

“We cannot be beholden to Bernie Sanders,” Ndgo told the convention.

In addition to selecting the party’s presidential ticket, the Green delegates also codified the party’s platform, which includes planks on dramatically ramping up efforts to combat global warming, ending mass incarceration and reducing domestic and foreign surveillance. It also features platform items that fall well to the left of the Democratic Party, including calling for reparations for descendants of slaves and condemning Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territory.

The Green Party has not been without its share of controversy this election cycle. Stein has come under fire recently for comments that affirmed the science of vaccinations but echoed language used by anti-vaccine activists, as The Huffington Post’s Anna Almendrala noted earlier this month.  

“Like any medication, [vaccines] also should be — what shall we say? — approved by a regulatory board that people can trust,” Stein told the Washington Post in July.

Looking ahead, party officials say one of Stein’s best hopes to gain traction will be to appear in the presidential debates this fall. A lawsuit brought by the Stein and Johnson campaigns against the Commission on Presidential Debates, the body that sets the number of debates and the rules governing them, was thrown out by a federal judge on Friday. Currently, the commission requires candidates to receive at least an average of 15 percent in five nationwide polls in order to participate.

Upheaval http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32281 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32281#comments Sun, 07 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32281 Some years ago, there was a period in my life when everything was going beautifully. I was busy and active, but never overly stressed. During those days, I felt at the height of my creative powers, like I was growing in every way. And here was the amazing thing: every resource I needed just seemed to come into my life, without my having to go chase it down.

You ever have one of those times, when everything just seems to be going your way? That’s what it was like. And I’m not talking about just for a day, or a week, but month after month, things just kept going like that, getting better and better.

I should have known that streak wouldn’t last forever. Somehow, I didn’t see the crisis coming.

It came anyway.

One day, for no apparent reason, all hell broke loose.

Suddenly it seemed like everything was in turmoil. Everything I’d taken for granted, the stretches of peaceful concentration, the effortlessness of everyday life — gone. It wasn’t just that I was being shaken out of a sense of complacency. It was more like I was being shoved out of my life.

I’ve never been through an earthquake, nor experienced the fury of a volcano or the direct hit of a lightning strike — but I’ll bet they all feel something like what I was feeling now.

It’s hard to describe in detail, but it seemed like every aspect of my surroundings, an environment that had so recently felt altogether nourishing and supportive, had all at once turned against me.

I want things to go back to the way they were! I thought. But I knew things couldn’t go back to the way they were. They never do. They only go forward.

Acknowledging — albeit grudgingly and with a continuing sense of considerable resistance — the fact that I was being forced to leave behind the comfortable life I’d known, I plunged into the difficult and frightening business of making a transition to a new chapter, with no clear sense at all of what that new chapter might look like.

It was terrifying. I felt like I no longer even knew who I was, let alone where I was heading.

At one point things got so bad that I actually let out a physical wail of distress.

And in the next instant, there was a blinding light — and I heard the thundering of a nearby voice:

“Congratulations, Mrs. Mann — it’s a healthy baby boy!”

Transition: it never feels easy, does it? But then, you can’t just stay where you were.

And really, considering the possibilities of the road ahead: would you even want to?

Genetically Modified Mosquitoes Approved By FDA To Fight Zika In Florida http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32280 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32280#comments Sun, 07 Aug 2016 06:43:08 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32280

The United States has taken another step toward clearing the way for a trial of genetically modified mosquitoes in Florida as a way of reducing populations of mosquitoes that carry the Zika virus.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Friday that a field trial testing Intrexon Corp’s genetically engineered mosquitoes would not have a significant impact on the environment. The announcement came as Florida officials ramp up aerial pesticide spraying of a neighborhood in Miami. Florida is the first state to report local transmission of the virus.

Florida health authorities have identified 16 Zika cases spread by local mosquitoes and expect there may be more.

Pregnant women are most at risk from Zika, a virus spread by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. U.S. health officials have concluded that Zika infections in pregnant women can cause microcephaly, a birth defect marked by small head size that can lead to severe developmental problems in babies.

The Zika outbreak was first detected last year in Brazil and has spread rapidly in the Americas.

Intrexon’s Oxitec unit has been working for years to kick off a trial of the mosquitoes in the Florida Keys to assess the effectiveness of its mosquitoes to reduce levels of mosquitoes that carry diseases, including Zika, dengue, Yellow Fever and chikungunya.

The FDA has been reviewing Oxitec’s application for use of its technology as an investigational new animal drug. Its environmental assessment helps clear the way for the company to begin a clinical trial in Key Haven, Florida that would assess whether the genetically modified mosquitoes will mate with local, wild mosquitoes and suppress their population over time.

Results of that trial would be used to support approval of the company’s technology, a process that could take more than a year.

Oxitec’s mosquitoes are genetically altered so their offspring die before they can reproduce. Trials in Brazil, Panama and the Cayman Islands have shown that the Oxitec mosquitoes can reduce local Aedes aegypti populations by more than 90 percent.

‘THEY ARE USING US’

To begin the trial, however, the company must first await the results of a vote in the Nov. 8 general election seeking community approval for the trial.

Oxitec Chief Executive Hadyn Parry said in a conference call that the vote is non-binding, and the decision about whether to proceed is up to the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District, the local body responsible for mosquito control.

Community support in the vote is not guaranteed.

In Key Haven, a suburb of large, waterfront homes near Key West where the trial is slated to take place, yard signs have popped up declaring “no consent” to the release of genetically modified mosquitoes.

Kathryn Watkins, a Key Haven resident recruited by trial opponents, is seeking election to the board overseeing the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District.

“It just has everyone scared,” Watkins said, adding that local residents see themselves as unwilling test subjects. “The genetically modified male has to mate with a wild female, and the wild female has to bite us in order to lay eggs,” she said.

“They are using us in this trial without consent,” she added.

As his company awaits the vote, Parry said he intends to ask the FDA for an emergency-use authorization that would make the product available to help battle Zika in the United States. The FDA has approved several diagnostic products under this designation.

But it is not likely to be granted under current statutes. FDA spokeswoman Theresa Eisenman said there is no “fast-track” designation for new animal drugs, and emergency-use provisions in the applicable law do not apply to animal drugs.

The World Health Organization has declared Zika a global health emergency, and has suggested that alternative approaches to fighting mosquitoes that carry the virus might be an important way to suppress mosquito populations.

Zika spread rapidly in Latin America and the Caribbean before local transmission began in the continental United States. Aedes aegypti mosquitoes thrive in warmer southern U.S. states.

The Rio Opening Ceremony Put Climate Change Front And Center http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32277 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32277#comments Sat, 06 Aug 2016 06:43:35 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32277

The Opening Ceremony at the Rio Olympics Friday evening was filled with celebrations of Brazilian culture and unity. But for a few brief moments, the message was polarizing and crystal clear: The world must do whatever it can to stop climate change. 

 “The heat is melting the ice cap,” a voice said. “It’s disappearing very quickly.”

An accompanying segment showed effects of the melting polar ice cap and subsequent rising sea level on places that include Amsterdam, Dubai, Lagos, Shanghai, Florida and Rio de Janeiro itself. A green peace sign shone in the middle of Maracana Stadium.

The Opening Ceremony also reportedly showed the animation below, created by Ed Hawkins, a climate scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Science at the University of Reading, according to Mashable.

Fernando Meirelles, who directed the Opening Ceremony, tweeted beforehand that he expected Donald Trump not to approve of the event for many reasons, including its multiculturalism. No word on Trump, but this guy sure seemed upset:

MTBF, MTTR, And The System Of You http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32274 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32274#comments Sat, 06 Aug 2016 06:43:06 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32274 I’ve failed many times. I failed recently and it feels awful. How about you? When was the last time you failed?

When we’re very young we fail a lot. Look at any toddler as they learn to walk. It’s pretty well understood that it’s through failure and persistence that we learn to do things.

Fast forward a few years, and it becomes increasingly difficult for us to accept failure. We assume that we can’t learn and grow at the rate that we could when we were kids. But is that really true? Maybe we stop growing because we’re scared of failure.

The core of this essay came out of teaching Search Inside Yourself in France this summer where participants found some of the analogies below very useful.

2016-08-05-1470428185-4030669-Untitled3.png

Measuring Failure

There are several different metrics we can use when measuring system failures. I want to use two of them to contrast ways of thinking about failure. The first is Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) and the second is Mean Time To Recovery (MTTR).

If you focus on increasing Mean Time Between Failures (or MTBF, the average time between failures), you tend towards building a highly controlled system that stays within safe bounds of operation. You harden your components, control your operating conditions, and are relentless in your pursuit of order.

When I worked at amazon in the early 2000s, both amazon and google were pioneering a slightly different way of thinking about the reliability of computer systems. They began to experiment with the idea of using very cheap components that were known to fail; so “failures” became routine occurrences rather than out-of-the-ordinary events. Then you bind them together with software that expects those failures, and works around them as quickly as possible. You start to focus, then, on the Mean Time to Recovery (MTTR) from a failure — or the time it takes for the system to come back to being operational after a given failure.

The System of You

Think about what those two approaches mean for the System of You.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably old enough that you know that failure usually feels like poop. No one likes that feeling. Think of a time when you felt shame, when you let someone down, when you publicly made a mistake. It was probably uncomfortable and you may have resolved never to feel that again.

In other words, we start optimizing for a very long Mean Time Between Failures; possibly by doubling-down on our strengths, avoiding things that are unfamiliar, unknown, or uncomfortable,.

What would it look like to optimize for Mean Time To Recovery? To push the boundaries of the uncomfortable, to embrace failures, to fail fast and fail often (as the startup mantra goes), and to continue to get better at recovering quickly from those failures.

It may sound good in theory, but given how terrible failure feels, how do you actually do this?

Be with what IS.

At the most basic level, we need to learn to be with whatever is.
What will happen hasn’t yet happened, so cannot actually harm us in this instant.
What was, by definition, has already manifested, and so cannot be changed.
Even what is happening in this instant is already in the process of unfolding, so cannot be changed.
But we do have a choice as to how we react to what is happening right now.

While it might be possible to accept all that intellectually, it still doesn’t change the fact that failure feels awful in the moment. How do we learn to experience the very physical unpleasantness that comes with difficult emotions (like failure)?

This is exactly what we practice when we sit.

After we first train our attention, we learn to bring our attention to physical sensations in all different parts of our body, and observe their characteristics objectively, without labeling them as pleasant or unpleasant. We practice being with unpleasant sensations without pushing them away but instead just really noticing them like a scientist might observe bacteria under a microscope.

Very soon we realize that we need to be skillful not just with the unpleasant, but with the pleasant sensations too.

How could that be important — isn’t it good to feel, well, good?

If we cannot experience pleasant sensations with the same objectivity that we cultivate in the presence of unpleasantness, we quickly go from enjoying them to becoming attached to them. And then the moment they disappear (which they must), we crave them, and we are uncomfortable until we can bring them back.

In a way this is related to Carol Dweck’s research on fixed vs. growth mindset, and the importance of praising effort vs. outcome. Praise feels good, and if the praise is for a positive outcome (“good job acing that test!”) then we tend to only work on things where we expect to get a positive outcome. If the praise is for effort (“you studied hard for that test!”), then we are more open to working on things where our efforts will be recognized, regardless of the outcome.

In a way what we’re talking about here is going one level deeper and weaning ourselves from the need to be praised or recognized — regardless of whether it’s for effort or outcome.

Sensations and MTTR

Wait a sec. Our goal was to reduce Mean Time to Recovery. Let’s suppose you somehow master the art of “being with what is.” How and why does that help reduce MTTR?

There are two aspects to this.

I often use the stubbed-toe example when I teach: take a moment to think about, and briefly re-live, a time you stubbed your toe; and the pain you felt…

Did you later say to yourself: “let me kick the table again so I can really remember what that stubbed toe felt like?” I doubt it.

And yet we do that all the time with our emotions. Something happens that causes us grief, and we re-play that incident over and over again in our minds. Each time we re-play it, we feel the grief, and try to push away that unpleasant feeling. And as we try to push it away, we analyze, dissect, and re-play it yet again.

As we get better with objectively observing sensations, the first thing that happens is that it becomes easier to experience the unpleasantness of failure as a passing bodily sensation, just like a stubbed toe. You can notice its onset, experience it in all its unpleasant and gory detail without needing to push it away, and notice as it passes (as everything does). There’s no need to continue to relive it. We can see ourselves as a sky with dark clouds currently passing through us, rather than identifying with the darkness.

As we learn to experience our sensations objectively, in finer levels of detail, and without pushing away the unpleasant or grasping for the pleasant — the second thing that happens is that we develop an ability to also make better cognitive sense of them. For example:

How much of our grief is from some actual impending issue (“my rent is due and I’m broke”)?

How much of our grief is from current events not reflecting a mental picture we’ve created to describe who we are (e.g., traits such kind, conscientious, hard working; and roles like engineer, husband, father)?

And how much of the grief is from worrying about the effect on meticulous PR job we’ve done our whole life, creating mental pictures in other people’s minds (“what will so-and-so think of me when they hear about this?”).

Once we can tease apart these factors, the magnitude of the grief we experience is often reduced significantly, and it becomes even easier to recover rather than stew in worry, anger, shame, or other negative emotions.

Why embrace failure?

Backing up a moment — isn’t it good that failure feels terrible? Isn’t that what helps drives us to succeed, and navigate away from mistakes?

I’m in no way suggesting a masochistic love of failure.

I love how we talk about self-management in the Search Inside Yourself class as

a shift from compulsion to choice

“Unpleasantness” is an amazing set of data points that we are getting about a situation. Normally we are reacting to the unpleasantness by keeping it at arm’s length, we are in effect compelled, trapped or victimized into a course of action by our desire to get rid of that unpleasantness.

I’m advocating learning to integrate these data points into a broader understanding of a situation and then proactively choosing the most skillful course of action.

But like any skill, this too is a skill that needs to be practiced.

Back to the cushion

So as we practice being with the pleasant and unpleasant on the cushion, we get better at recovering from life’s setbacks.
As we get better at recovering from life’s setbacks, we stop over-indexing on safety and are more open to taking risks and exploring opportunities.
When those pan out, great!
In case they don’t, we get more practice at failing (and recovering), and feel even more liberated from the fear of the unknown.

So while you may think of meditators as sedentary and stationary; I believe there’s a way in which sustained practice can support a life of great adventure and exploration!

Footnote

In a way I feel vulnerable writing this. You may have read memoirs where the authors celebrate and glorify their failures, while writing from a vantage point of success and subsequent accolades. Part of me is thinking: “What if that high point never comes for me? What if this is as good as it gets?”

However, among the things I’m grateful to have experienced and observed first-hand these past few years is that nobody is spared from the pains of being human. Not the the super-wealthy, not the successful entrepreneurs and executives, not movie stars, not the suits, the hardhats, and no — not even the monks.

Which is why I’m pretty sure that you too have felt this uncertainty at some point in your life.

And so I wanted to share this post from “the trenches.” From a place of peacefully walking through a plateau of not knowing what comes next.

Integrative Scientist Pizzorno: “Toxicity is the Primary Driver of Disease” http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32273 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32273#comments Sat, 06 Aug 2016 06:43:06 +0000 http://pharmacydiscountnetworknews.net/?p=32273 Regular medicine is awakening to the dumbfounding reality that clinical care accounts for just 10%-20% of the factors contributing to health. But if research recently presented by a leader in the revitalization of the naturopathic medical profession – and of the movements for functional and integrative medicine – is correct, even the most aggressive adopters of the new thinking are still missing the boat.

The new thinking argues that if we want to create health, we need to address things like poverty, education, genetics and healthy behaviors. The figure describes these.

2016-08-05-1470421229-8733640-socialdeterminants_health250.PNG

Yet according to best-selling author and researcher Joseph Pizzorno, ND, even these new adopters are grossly understating the most significant factor. In a recent presentation at Snowbird, Utah at the annual conference of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, Pizzorno presented compelling evidence that – if his calculations hold up – “toxicity is the primary driver of disease.”

Pizzorno, the co-author of the Textbook of Natural Medicine – the first major textbook detailing the evidence behind natural therapeutics – is the leading figure in the re-emergence of the naturopathic medical profession over the past 40 years. The founding president of what is now Bastyr University is presently the editor of the peer-reviewed and PubMed-indexed scientific publication, Integrative Medicine: A Clinician’s Journal.

Since leaving the Bastyr presidency, Pizzorno led a multi-year employee health project with a significant Canadian employer. Through it, he opened his eyes further to what he now believes is the most important yet grossly under-respected target for remedial action if health is our goal.

Pizzorno and colleagues first shared well-known data showing that our present chronic disease epidemics – including obesity, diabetes, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and kidney disease – are temporally associated with a parallel rise in environmental pollutants. The worst are what are called POPS – “persistent organic pollutants.” These are chemical compounds that are defined as “resistant to environmental degradation through chemical, biological, and photolytic processes.” They have long half-lives and hang around in our soils and tissues.

The parallel arcs of increase – see the graph below — in each from 1960s to the present are startling. In his presentation, Pizzorno showed that, in contradistinction, the sugar-and-diabetes relationship is not nearly as compelling.

In his presentation, Pizzorno then described a mathematical model he and his team built for predicting the “attributable fraction” of a disease that can be linked to specific chemical exposures. The team worked out data for high profile POPS: DDT, glyphosates, arsenic, lead, vinyl chloride and a dozen more.

The conclusions are ugly. Reported Pizzorno: “Greater than 50% of ADHD is due to just 3 toxins. Over 50% of diabetes is due to phthalates, arsenic and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.” His team found direct correlations between specific POPs and IQ decreases in children. Individual toxins were found to have profound impacts on numerous serious diseases. “Nearly 45% of Alzheimer’s,” reported Pizzorno, “is linked to DDT alone.” The calculations put the attributable fraction of arsenic to prostate cancer at 31.5%. Over 40% of gout in women is arsenic related. PCBs had a high association with heart attacks. And on and on.

The POPS are everywhere. Pizzorno presented a slide that denoted the following proportional sources: food (70%), water (10%), house and yard chemicals (10%), air (5%) and health and beauty aids (5%).

I asked Pizzorno after the talk if the formula has been vetted. He responded that he’d had it reviewed by multiple scientists and the method is under discussion. He added that “the results are so surprising that all possible critiques need to be thoroughly considered.” That process continues.

The week after the presentation, I opened my email to a document from the Health and Medicine Division of the National Academies of Sciences entitled “The Interplay Between Environmental Chemical Exposures and Obesity: Proceedings of a Workshop.” The workshop was a world removed from the gathering of naturopathic physicians to whom Pizzorno presented his findings. Yet they had similar conclusions.

2016-08-05-1470422462-3433366-Toxinschronicchartto2000.gif

Instead of naturopathic doctors whose whole system world views dispose them toward anticipating health problems from toxins, the report sponsors included Exxon, Royal Dutch Shell and Colgate Palmolive. Yet here, too, according to the introduction to the report, “the speakers at the workshop discussed evidence from both studies with animal models and human epidemiological studies that exposure to environmental chemicals is linked both to weight gain and to glucose tolerance, insulin sensitivity, inflammation, and other aspects of the metabolic syndrome.”

Their content was neither as wide-ranging or causality-specific as that presented by Pizzorno. Yet the agreement that addressing diet and lifestyle alone are not going to get to the bottom of the huge and costly obesity epidemic is strong. And it should not surprise that the naturopathic and integrative medicine communities remain a few steps ahead of regular medicine in respecting the damage of these agents in human health.

The implications of Pizzorno’s research and analysis are profound. The piece of the pie chart above on determinants of health would need to vastly expand from the 10% share attributed to the “physical environment” to reflect the corrosive, disruptive forces of toxins on our tissues and life processes.

Presidential candidates vie over whether we need $ 1-trillion or $ 500-billion or $ 250-billion to begin to get our nation’s infrastructure in order. But what is the budget needed for economic conversion from POPS-riddled industry, agriculture, energy production, food processing, housing and consumer goods to methods in each of these arenas that co-habit with human health? Isn’t this an infrastructure we need to address?

Pizzorno’s data suggest that unless we wake to more sustainable living, we should prepare ourselves for a paradoxical future. Our highways and bridges and schools and water systems seem to have bipartisan support for renovation. Yet these fresh environs will be inhabited by human beings crippled by diseases of toxicity.
