    In this excellent TED Talk, former president, Jimmy Carter explains why the mistreatment of women is the number one human rights abuse on our planet. Filmed in May 2015. We are greatly saddened by the recent news of Jimmy Carter’s battle with melanoma cancer that was in his liver early this year and now has created four spots on his brain.

  • Twitter Beckons, Business Leaders Go Missing

    30 Aug 2015 | 5:45 pm
    The long established brand emphasis on raising business-to-consumer awareness (B2C) has lead to neglect of the as-important opportunities in developing business-to-business (B2B) thought leadership. In a world where value-sharing and trust-building have become so crucial to communications, this oversight has left a hole of epic proportions. And, while the legal department may still have to work through their fear of the idea, a whole new level of impact and influence can be gained when a company leader dives into the world of social media. This neglected opportunity was apparent when I…

    The fantastic but perhaps little understood thing about social capital building through Twitter is that you truly DO develop what feels like a warm, supportive in-real-life style community – with each member looking out for one another. Like any other community (in churches or schools, for example…), it can then be pretty jarring when an active member doesn’t show up as often. That’s why I wanted to share my current work transition. As of April 1, I have taken a full-time social media strategist position with the incredible We Mean Business Coalition communications team. The seven…

    How often do you hear a leader described in the media as a “good listener?” Not often. That may be because, both in theory and by tradition, descriptions of leadership still tend to focus more on the output (decisive! charismatic!) than the input. But, the best leadership in practice today gets noted for its calibration toward the latter. And, social media is an incredible source for that. One business leader currently well representing the listening and learning “input” approach is Deidre Paknad , founder and CEO of Workboard (her third company). I first came across…

  • The War Inside My Body: Or What Ben Carson Thinks.

    echidne
    2 Sep 2015 | 3:07 am
    The Republican Presidential hopeful Ben Carson promises to give a lot of grist for my sarcasm mill!  Just ponder this fairly recent comment of his:“They tell you that there’s a war on women,” he said. “There is no war on women. There may be a war on what’s inside of women, but there is no war on women in this country.”A very fine distinction our Ben tries to make there!  If only women had, say, prostates and penises, then we wouldn't have a war about their insides! But more seriously, Carson hints at the dismal treatment of women in many other countries, and he is…

    This is the last day of this series.  You might want to end it by reading this audit study about white privilege on Australian buses.  Audit studies are very useful, because they manage to hold lots of stuff constant while analyzing the impact of something like race or gender or ethnic group on the way people are treated.That "holding constant" means that the actors playing the roles in the study are trained to do everything the same.  For instance, if the actors are to look for jobs in the study they are provided with equally good resumes and trained to ask and answer all…

    (From last May.  You might also wish to read this post about the coverage of the case.  It equates the Duggars' sect with Christianity in general.)Many have written about the recently revealed child molestation accusations against Josh Duggar, the oldest son of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, the Quiverfull parents of nineteen children whose lives are depicted in a now (temporarily?) withdrawn reality show 19 Kids and Counting.The basic ideology of the Quiverfull movement is well summarized by the description of Kathryn Joyce's book* about the Christian patriarchy cult:Kathryn Joyce's…
  • Mail-Order Husbands?

    echidne
    27 Aug 2015 | 1:00 am
    You know about the women who are called mail-order brides, right?  From the point of view of, say, American men who seek such a wife  the market is for foreign women who seem to be viewed as more biddable, more willing to cook and clean, more willing to accept male leadership in the marriage and more exotic than homegrown women.   Some of the MRA sites, for instance,  advocate that men should order their wives from abroad so as to guarantee that feminism hasn't corrupted them yet.*But the market for mail-order brides is only one way to look at what's happening. …

    by Leanne ElyToday's Focus is on BACONThe Chinese started enjoying salted pork bellies in 1500 BC. The Romans and the Greeks also enjoyed eating this preserved pork product.In 1924, the first packaged and sliced bacon was patented by Oscar Mayer, and the world would never be the same. Oh, bacon. Those of us who are living a Paleo lifestyle, well, we go through pounds of this stuff each month. Known as the candy of meats, bacon is one of those foods that basically just makes life better. The average American eats 17.9 pounds of the stuff each year!All bacon really is, is cured, smoked pork.

    The other night I was trying to figure out what we were going to have for dinner - I knew it would be chicken, but WHAT kind of chicken?? My kids love orange chicken, but time was short and the thought of all the steps involved in making it on a hot summer evening, standing over the frying oil was just slightly more than I was up for.  So I started thinking of how I could make them an orange-y chicken without the dredging and deep-frying and immediately I thought of skewers!  But I couldn't just brush some orange juice on them and call it done, nope - it had to have more flavor…

    I stopped eating gluten. Developed a taste for ghee. I learned the fine art of pomade and we swam in the pool, the lake, the ocean. (Not that those things are necessarily related.) We watched Charlotte's Web and Stand By Me, both of which took some fast forwarding. I told Ozzy to say please when he yelled at me from the bathroom to wipe his butt. I did this 243 times.This is the slow end of that particular montage, and while I know sentiment is cheap, I can hear the music rising.Today was the first day of school. It slips in quietly surrounded by noise, and before you know it you are…

    Guest Contributor
    31 Aug 2015 | 9:40 am
    by Mary E. Costanza, MD Women who are diagnosed with a very early stage of breast cancer usually undergo some type of surgery with the hope that it will eliminate their risk of developing invasive breast cancer. The most common treatment is lumpectomy followed by radiation, though some women opt for a mastectomy or even a double mastectomy, which involves removing a healthy breast as well. A new study published this month shows that in most cases, treatment does not affect a woman’s outcome, throwing into question whether surgical treatments have been overly aggressive and overused.

    By Julie Rovner, Kaiser Health News Republican calls to defund Planned Parenthood over its alleged handling of fetal tissue for research are louder than ever. But they are just the latest in a decades-long drive to halt federal support for the group. This round of attacks aims squarely at the collection of fetal tissue, an issue that had been mostly settled — with broad bipartisan support — in the early 1990s. Among those who voted to allow federal funding for fetal tissue research was now-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky). McConnell made no mention of his previous position…

The panel voted 18-6 in favor of Sprout Pharmaceutical’s drug application on the condition that the company develops plans to manage the risks of the medication, which include fatigue, low blood pressure, and fainting. The FDA had previously rejected two applications for approval, citing concerns over side effects and lack of information about drug interaction. [View the FDA briefing…

    By Anna Gorman, Kaiser Health News Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian, one of the largest and most respected facilities in Orange County, Calif., needed to move quickly. A big insurer had warned that its maternity costs were too high and it might be cut from the plan’s network. The reason? Too many cesarean sections. “We were under intense scrutiny,” said Dr. Allyson Brooks, executive medical director of Hoag’s women’s health institute. The c-section rate at the time, in early 2012, was about 38 percent. That was higher than the state average of 33 percent and above most others in…

  • On being fiction-averse

    blue milk
    2 Sep 2015 | 3:04 am
    One can become unable, in certain emotional states, to read fiction, and for me there is a similar ‘fiction-averse’ component to human experience, where things can seem so intensely real that you don’t want, or aren’t capable of, any distance from them at all. Having a baby seemed like one of those periods; getting divorced was another. From Rachel Cusk in “Rachel Cusk on her quietly radical new novel, Outline” in Vogue by Megan O’Grady.

    I’ve always been someone who lives very much in my head. The startling, terrifying (and sometimes exhilarating) thing about becoming a mother was that that vanished almost immediately. I couldn’t think in any sustained way anymore; my mind flitted from thing to thing, and the novel I’d been writing for years no longer made much sense to me. My purpose became quite simply to keep her alive. My body was either on high alert or utterly exhausted. From Jenny Offill in an interview with Megan O’Grady in Vogue with “Scenes from a marriage: Jenny Offill on modern motherhood”.

    For ease of understanding, I use ‘divorced’ regularly to describe my status, though I was never married. But what other words do you use to convey a relationship you thought would be a lifetime and wasn’t? Until we had children, he and I lacked both the terminology and the ceremony to explain the significance of our relationship to others. Now, without marriage, the transition from inside to outside the relationship has similarly lacked terminology and ceremony, and is apparently so capricious as to require two witness statements to prove it. This is something I discovered…

    So, here’s a report from Israel via NPR demonstrating pretty conclusively that disparities in math achievement in school between girls and boys are an artifact of sexism, not any innate differences between the sexes. Turns out that if teachers who know the students grade sixth-grade math exams, girls do worse than boys. But when those same exams are graded by outside teachers who don’t know the genders of the students, the girls in fact do better than the boys. However, the lower scores seem to discourage girls from pursuing mathematics at higher levels. It’s always good to…

    Employers can refuse to provide coverage for contraception on moral as well as religious grounds. My reaction to this is slightly more complex than it might be normally.

    Which treatment is best for managing menopausal sleep problems? We tend to think of estrogen replacement therapy as being the best option for all menopausal symptoms; however, there are other options for managing menopausal symptoms, including serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors, and gabapentin. A recent study compares low-dose estradiol and low-dose venlafaxine for the […] The post In Brief: Venlafaxine as Effective as Low-Dose Estradiol for Menopausal Sleep Symptoms appeared first on MGH Center for Women's Mental Health.

    Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is an effective treatment for mood and anxiety disorders and has been shown to be effective for the treatment of postpartum depression (PPD).  However, not all women have access to CBT-savvy therapists.  In addition, it is often difficult for new mothers to travel outside of the home for regular appointments.  A recent […] The post Telephone-Based CBT for Postpartum Depression appeared first on MGH Center for Women's Mental Health.

    More and more people are using electronic cigarettes.  While e-cigarettes are often touted as being safer than tobacco-containing cigarettes, there is fierce debate among experts as to whether this is actually the case.  There is also no evidence that e-cigarettes facilitate smoking cessation. A recent study suggests that many pregnant women — more than 40% […] The post Many Pregnant Women Unaware of the Risks of Electronic Cigarettes appeared first on MGH Center for Women's Mental Health.

    Because women appear to be at increased risk for new onset and recurrent depression as they transition into the menopause, it has been hypothesized that declining ovarian function — or estrogen “withdrawal” — may trigger depressive symptoms in some women.  While this is a very reasonable and totally plausible hypothesis, no studies have formally tested […] The post Proving the Estrogen Withdrawal Hypothesis of Perimenopausal Depression appeared first on MGH Center for Women's Mental Health.

    Many pregnant women complain of “pregnancy brain”.  They describe that they feel less sharp than usual and often complain of bouts of forgetfulness.  Is it because they are distracted by thinking about and planning for the arrival of the new baby?  Is it the hormones? Is it sleep deprivation? A new study suggests that depression may […] The post Pregnancy Brain?  Or is it Depression? appeared first on MGH Center for Women's Mental Health.

    As a woman, no matter what stage of life you are in, balancing life’s demands can be difficult.  You are forced to take control and manage obligations for your job, family, relationships, health and household, performing a juggling act, doing the best that you can in order to maintain your overall health.   As a young woman, I have seen first-hand the effects hormone imbalances have on women. The effects of stress, sleep deprivation, poor eating habits and not taking the time to listen to your body will take a huge toll on a woman’s life. With busy schedules, deadlines…

I’m going to try to forget all the negativity, and focus on enjoying my weekend. I’ll be up in L.A. doing some photography work part of the weekend. I, also, hope to get a few hours of art time.

Fred wanted to spend some of his beach time hanging out on the cool, wet, sand. Fred – Now a 10 Month Old Newfoundland Puppy! Fred now weighs approximately 130 pounds. (He kept moving as I tried to weigh him which is why I say “approximately.”) Every time we go to the beach, Fred gets a lot of attention and love from total strangers. He doesn’t seem to mind.

But … there are a lot of problems in the photography world. (!!!!) Some of those problems are downright dangerous. (I’m sure you’ve read news stories of photographers being killed while taking photos on train tracks, etc.) A few years ago I met a woman, about 30 years old, who told me about her love for photography. She was (and still is) very much a “fan” of my work. Her photos…

    26 Aug 2015 | 6:24 pm
    Or perhaps I should ask HOW should feminist parents tell their daughters they are beautiful?Last week I attended Tamara Winfrey Harris' book reading at Women and Children First. She read from her book, The Sisters Are Alright, which discusses how Black women are viewed in the USA and their reactions to those views. One area that the discussion centered on was that of beauty.There are many issues that #365FeministSelfie has dealt with and at its core is the concept of beauty. Who gets to say who is beautiful? Why don't more women believe that they are beautiful? During the life of the project,…

I haven't kept up with her career and appearances on "Inside Amy Schumer" or "Transparent," so getting a chance to preview her new HBO special, "Tig Notaro: Boyish Girl Interrupted," was exciting.Notaro's style of comedy is slyly smart. Sometimes her jokes take a moment longer to get to the kick than you expect. But for the most part, they stick their landing. She laughs about her inability to hang in Vegas, which all the…

    In 2006, under the neon lights of a gay-friendly neighborhood in New York City, a group of African-American lesbians were violently threatened by a man on the street. The women fought back and were later charged with gang assault and attempted murder. The tabloids quickly dubbed them a gang of "Killer Lesbians" and a "Wolf Pack." Three pleaded guilty to avoid a trial, but the remaining four — Renata, Patreese, Venice and Terrain — maintained their innocence. The award-winning Out in the Night examines the sensational case and the women's uphill battle, revealing the role that race, gender…

    Often, when we deny ourselves the chance to let go of clutter, we also deny ourselves the chance to let go of resentment and other emotional burdens. Since clutter blocks so many things in our lives – happiness, serenity and even success, we often cannot see what is beyond the other side of it. Without you realizing, big things often are obstructed by small things, like that pile of scratch papers in your desk that is stopping you from finding that needed paper and finishing your report on time. Clutter distracts while a tidy desk makes a happy and focused worker. Jorja, has previously…

That said, being you doesn’t mean EVERYONE will dig you — we all have different flavours and tastes. But it does mean that your tribe will be able to see you. And the people who are ready to have what you offer will hear you. And the universe will get a very clear signal about what makes you more…YOU. And it will deliver more YOU-affirming things into your life. And what’s the alternative to being authentically strong, vulnerable,…

    photo credit: Catherine Just I’ve had thousands of conversations with people about desire and this is what I’ve learned from them (and from my own fiercely tender fierce heart): Desire is simple. You can crave it, distill it, and peel back every kind of wish and most get to this: Everyone desires to love and be loved. Beloved. Some of us spill that desire in all directions — we yearn for real love with ourselves, our God, our blood family, our soul family, our lovers, our twin flame, our collaborators, our community, our culture, our galaxy. We want to give love and we want to…

And then I say, No, THIS year, it’s the best edition yet. Well… THIS YEAR IS THE BEST PLANNER COLLECTION EVER. It’s radically newer, smarter, wiser, funner, and sexier. It’s taken Team D and me 3 years and a bunch of surveys and feedback to really truly hit it out of the park with this edition. I feel like I’ve finally landed on the organization and design that will work for a vast amount of people and stand the test of time.

    "I lived for five years in an institution. The time I spent there seemed like an eternity. I felt like I was in a dark maze where I couldn't find the light." No child should ever have to experience such darkness and sadness. But Dumitrita, the 14-year-old Moldovan child who spoke those words, grew up in a society where there was no chance for someone with disabilities like hers to attend a mainstream school. Fearing for her daughter's future, Dumitrita's mother saw no other option but to send her to a residential institution where she could learn, and at the age of 7, Dumitrita left her…

    The new film Grandma tells a story rare for American cinema: a lesbian of advanced years (Lily Tomlin), in mourning for her soul mate and on skittish footing with the much younger woman she's been seeing (Judy Greer), is suddenly thrust into an adventure involving her teenage granddaughter (Julia Garner) and an unwanted pregnancy. The female-centric subject and cast are courtesy of a filmmaker who would perhaps not be one's first guess for such material: Paul Weitz, whose directorial debut (with his brother, Chris) was the proud cultural touchstone American Pie.

I saw him in concert when I was 15, in the days of "One Less Lonely Girl" and "Baby," but my true fandom hit all-time highs with "Boyfriend," and skyrocketed with "All That Matters." I've tried to deny it because he's admittedly a bit gross and would probably creep me out if I met him in person, but every time a new Bieber song comes out, I get addicted all over again and have to face the facts: I am a Belieber. So you can imagine my elation when I discovered that Bieber had released a new song, "What Do…

I looked at everything: full-time, part-time, seasonal, anything during off-hours to avoid childcare costs. I do well with self-governed busy work because I find comfort in repetition. It makes way for great thinking time, and quite honestly, peace and quiet. I was rattling off several options to my husband one night at the dinner table. He…

Once, after a family wedding when we all gathered in the hotel lobby to say our farewells to each other, the lady behind the front desk said “I’ve been watching you all say goodbye for the last half hour. How long will it be until you all see each other again?” The answer: two weeks.

As I was organizing my closet, I got frustrated that not a single pair of jeans fit properly. They were all either too big, too small, too short, too worn, too baggy, too something.

Here's how to do it:Write the script to a standard speed: The speechwriters' rule of thumb is about 120 words per minute. That means 600 words for every 5 minutes of speaking.

It is also the age when the metabolism slows down and needs a boost so that women can be fit and healthy in the coming years of their lives.

  • Wrath -- Force of Nature at Wave Hill

    Marcia G. Yerman
    2 Sep 2015 | 10:30 am
    No matter how desperately certain legislators hold on to their entrenched beliefs that climate change is not happening and that human action has no consequences in the equation, there are plenty who beg to differ. This includes 97 percent of scientists, and military analysts who have warned that droughts and rising oceans will lead to population displacement and global unrest. Seven Deadly Sins: Wrath -- Force of Nature at Wave Hill in the Bronx brings together twelve artists who have their fingers on the pulse of this issue. The exhibit is part of a linked presentation by the Fairfield…

    11 Aug 2015 | 8:04 am
    With the threat of climate change and a host of other environmental challenges looming like a dark cloud, the 2016 election will be a time to hold candidates accountable on where they stand on these concerns -- and what they promise to deliver. Martin O'Malley, previously Mayor of Baltimore and Governor of Maryland, has joined the presidential race as a Democratic contender. He is looking to establish himself as a champion on the environmental front. His agenda includes a "white paper" entitled, Our Renewable Future, and press materials featuring a checklist outlining his gubernatorial record…

    I have never been a great airplane passenger. I prefer to be on the ground. Now that I have learned about Aerotoxic Syndrome, a heath issue not in the public domain, I have a new concern. In a pattern strongly reminiscent of how "Big Tobacco" and "Big Oil" have used their power and influence to keep a story under the radar, the problems with the air breathed onboard airplanes is still not well-known. This is despite a 2013 broadcast feature on 60 Minutes called, "The Airline Industry's Darkest Secret." There have been plenty of calls to action by those directly impacted on a daily basis --…

    Students starting college this coming fall (as well as those returning) will be the first to benefit from the Sexual Violence Elimination Act (SaVE), which will require colleges to have "prevention and awareness" programs about sexual assault, dating violence, stalking, and domestic violence in place. (This including same-sex violence.) Well-defined campus conduct protocol for disciplinary procedures against those accused of such crimes must be formulated. Victims are required to receive "written information" that outlines their rights, the channels available to them for reporting incidents,…

    As the noise from the rhetoric of an ever-growing field of presidential candidates reaches an ear-splitting din, there is an announced candidate outside the two-party system that deserves to be heard. Dr. Jill Stein, under the banner of the Green Party of the United States (GPUS), is bringing her message to disaffected voters throughout the country. This is her second time at bat for the Green Party, which has been gaining traction at the local level. As explained in Stein's "Power to the People Plan," she and the Green Party are reaching out to individual citizens to be agents of change…

    While female entrepreneurs’ education level has increased, the innovation of female-owned businesses, measured by whether other businesses offer the same product, has decreased. There is less female involvement in the technology industry this year as well. The Global Entrepreneurship and Development Institute (GEDI) recently released the 2015 Female Entrepreneurship Index (FEI), which looks at a nation’s favourable conditions for women entrepreneurs worldwide. The FEI analyses 15 factors divided into three categories — Entrepreneurial Environment, Entrepreneurial Eco-System and…

    While the world has heard the stunning prediction that two-thirds of the global middle classes will be Asian by 2030, totally changing the economic polarity of the developed world, there’s been little focus on modern, independent Asian women (MIAW) — 25-40 year-olds.  In New Zealand, for example, premium food and beverage exporters have a lot to gain from this new demographic. [MIAWs] are a very significant group more in evidence in some markets than others. They are focused on making the most of their good educations, getting careers, and building their lives on their terms…

    Women entering the wine business are disrupting the global wine industry to make wines that are both more accessible and responsibly produced. Oddly enough, women, however, have been traditionally excluded from the world of wine, making them more likely to create boundary-pushing wines that defy traditional categories. Two women who fit this bill are Mika Bulmash (below left), CEO of Wine for the World and international development specialist, and Ntsiki Biyela (right), the first black South African female winemaker at Stellekaya, a boutique winery in Stellenbosch. Bulmash has rethought…

    Ginger
    19 Aug 2015 | 6:25 pm
    So school starts for the small person in about a week and a half & I’m feeling a bit crabby about the fact. My summer was stolen by my stupid foot, and while I’m at a point where I can say, “Yeah, the surgery will end up being a good thing in the long run (probably),” I’m still crabby about the fact that all our summer plans went to crap. My summer has had entirely too little beach and pool and vacation, and entirely too much I-can’t-do-jack and medical bills and stress. I’d like more of the former please, and less of the latter. Harrumph. On the…

    It’s been close to a month since my surgery, and things are chugging along. I had a pretty rough go of things for a couple of weeks there–I fell (everything is fine), I struggled a lot with being so limited with mobility, nerve pain caused a lot of distress, and I had a couple of emotional breakdowns. Then I rallied. Then I broke down again. Then I rallied. Then I fell again. Then I broke down again. I guess no one said recovery would be easy. Things are slowly getting better, although not fast enough for my liking. I can sleep without the boot now, and take it off during the day…

    I’m now more than a week out from my surgery. It was a good thing, although I’m at the point where I’m over the whole nonsense & kind of wish I could either undo it or just fast forward through this recovery phase. But let me back up. One of my biggest concerns prior to surgery was that they’d get in there and then say, “eh, we didn’t really need to do this.” Well, that fear turned out to be unfounded, as they actually did MORE than anyone was expecting. Instead of just repairing the torn tendon, they ended up: repairing the torn tendon,…

    19 Jun 2015 | 2:37 pm
    The ankle saga continues. Quick recap: sprained my ankle in March. Figured out in May I had torn peroneal tendon. Did a month of physical therapy to see if it would help. Spoiler–it didn’t help. And so, the order came in for surgery. Which I’ll be doing next Thursday. As in, less than a week from now. Followed by 2 weeks of non-weight bearing, then (hopefully) progressive weight bearing depending on how recovery is going for the next 4-6 weeks. I’ve been at a work retreat all this week, so I haven’t had (too) much time to freak out about it, but now that the…

    5 Jun 2015 | 6:17 pm
    I keep wanting to come here and write, but then the only things I think about lately are 1) my foot and 2) work and 3) money and 4) my kid and I can’t make words happen about anything else, so let’s just go ahead and catch up on those things, shall we? 1) My foot. I’ve got one more week of PT before I see my doctor again. I’m not necessarily encouraged, mostly because I have seen little to no improvement in pain in 2 of the 3 areas (the 2 that are directly related to the torn tendon), and in fact have seen some pain getting worse in 1 of those 2 areas, so. Yeah.

When I pushed my mother’s wheelchair up close to the casket, she called out loudly, “I’ll see you soon, Clarence!” Several of the people in the room turned and smiled. In my heart I was laughing as I returned their smiles and wheeled her away. My friends, our time on earth is brief and precious.

Fact 1: As each goose flaps its wings it creates an ‘uplift’ for the birds that follow. By flying in a ‘V’ formation, the whole flock adds 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew alone.  Lesson 1: People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they’re going quicker and easier because they are traveling on the ‘uplift’ of one another.  Fact 2: When a goose falls…

    3 Sep 2015 | 11:50 pm
    A few months back my daughter was asked to be part of a special forest photo shoot, along with 2 of her closest school friends, to promote a new range of tutu’s. It was a unique opportunity for her and I was happy to let her have the day off school to experience being a “fairy in the forest” for a day! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to be there myself but I have these gorgeous pics so I can get a glimpse of all the magic… I thought you might like them too!    The post Fairies in the Forest – a tutu photoshoot appeared first on Becoming you.

On a previous visit to the area while camping in the summer months, we had first visited this tranquil, lush oasis – the perfect escape from the heat of our tent.

    One of our favourite discoveries during our weekend in McGregor was Eseltjiesrus Donkey Sanctuary located just outside the town. This is a forever home for about 30 donkeys whose lives might not have turned out so well were it not for this safe space. Eseltjiesrus Donkey Sanctuary provides a permanent refuge for abused, neglected and elderly donkeys where they are given the opportunity to live out their lives with respect and dignity, surrounded by their own kind, in a protective and natural environment.

    Here you go, another round of my daily reminders to help you get grounded, reflective, and ready to take on the world! Clarity is the antidote to a cliched life. “It is not enough to be industrious; so are the ants. What are you industrious about?” Henry David Thoreau What you put in your body is important. And what you put in your mind is just as important. Maybe more. “More important than the quest for certainty is the quest for clarity.” Francois Gautier Don’t assume that anyone else thinks, acts, or chooses as you do. Start from a place of curiosity and openness.

    I can’t imagine life without Dancing Red Ranch. It’s where Ross and I head most weekends to breathe in the natural beauty of the Texas Hill Country. Surrounded by stands of live oak trees, visited by deer and hummingbirds, overlooking a valley and hills beyond, we delight in a spaciousness that helps keep us clear, grounded, and present — all week long. The first (of many) projects we undertook a decade ago was the trail. It’s about three-quarters of a mile down to the creek from the deck and then back up a steep slope to the well-house garden.

    Last week I introduced the idea of a minimum viable portfolio based on the concept of the minimum viable product. Today, I’d like to extend the minimum viable product analogy to your financial plan. Your minimum viable financial plan, that is. We’ve already defined the minimum viable portfolio as one with the highest return on investment versus risk. Therefore, I’d like to apply the same definition to your financial plan . . . A plan that will deliver the highest return versus risk. And this, my friends, is where things get interesting. When talking about an investment…

    In the world of product development, there is a concept called “minimum viable product.” Minimum viable product (MVP) is defined as the product with the highest return on investment versus risk. Essentially, before a product development team sinks hours into research and development trying to achieve the perfect product to bring to market, they instead figure out the quickest path to get a working product into the market. Then they let the market drive their product improvements, if any. Here are a few examples of MVP’s that have become commercial successes. You may…

I think it’s also safe to assume that they will perform some sort of diagnostic before prescribing any treatment. I learned firsthand that this isn’t always the case. Back in 2002, I had this dull ache in my side that just wouldn’t go away. It hurt when I breathed. It hurt when I moved. It hurt when I was holding my breath and standing perfectly still. Despite this, being in my early 30’s at the time, I ignored it and went with Elizabeth on a…

    Rebecca Griffin
    29 Aug 2015 | 9:12 am
    The news lately has reminded us of a long list of things that black people can’t do without facing punishment. Far too often that punishment is deadly. Making eye contact with a police officer, failing to use a turn signal, playing music too loudly. Now you can apparently add laughing to that list, as 11 women, 10 of whom were black, were kicked off a wine train and met by the police for laughing and having too much fun together. The company initially released a statement claiming the women were physically and verbally abusive, but quickly rescinded it and admitted it was false.

    We hardly need more examples that victim-blaming is alive and well, but the world keeps giving them to us.  After two Missouri lawmakers were forced to resign over sexual harassment allegations, some of their colleagues leapt to the eminently reasonable conclusion that none of this would have happened if those harlot interns hadn’t been dressed so provocatively:  Among the first suggested additions to Engler’s list came from Rep. Bill Kidd, an Independence Republican, who responded almost immediately, “Intern dress code.” He was seconded by Republican Rep. Nick King of Liberty.

You can’t deal with something, if you don’t know what it is. Analyze your childhood and other significant relationships. What has happened in each of those that have left you with hurts, wounds, and scars? What roles did you play in those relationships and what patterns can you identify that are reoccurring? Once you know how you have been impacted by prior relationships, you can see which issues have the potential to…

    APOLOGIES, genuine ones, have the power to redeem what was lost. To redeem what was lost is to get something worthwhile back. When we have said or done something bad the ability to ‘make it right’ through an aptly convincing apology gives both parties the chance of another opportunity. But here is a list of things to avoid: 1. Say one thing and mean another: words and tone that are mixed incongruently with body language only get us into trouble. It’s no good saying sorry if we have a smirk to go with it or we cannot commit to any eye contact. 2. Delay the apology: dragging…

This victim rate has steadily climbed over the years and today about one person in every three could be afflicted with this horrid disease! Cancer’s annual cost in the United States is over 263 billion dollars. It is the second leading cause of death and is responsible for one in four deaths.

The researchers from Turkey compared two groups of women who had given birth to their first child at least one year earlier and found that those who had had IVF were three-times more likely to be diagnosed with gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), than those who had conceived naturally. GORD is a common condition in which acid from the stomach travels up into the oesophagus and causes heartburn, regurgitation and pain when…

In the lab experiments, researchers found that when the “glucagon like peptide-1” (GLP-1) hormone was reduced in the central nervous system of mice, they overate and consumed more high fat food. “The mice in which the peptide deficiency was induced ate beyond the need for calories and showed an increase preference for high fat food,” said Vincent Mirabella, doctoral student from New Jersey-based Rutgers University.

Just as people age and their appearance changes, the appearance of a person’s breasts can change over time.

    I’ve always been a breakfast person. I often wake up really hungry so a big bowl of cereal or oats with my morning coffee really sets me up for the day!

Personally, I am anti ANY diet that fully restricts the consumption of any food group. I will NEVER deny myself the pleasure of eating a delicious piece of sweet chocolate cake or a slice of white toast slathered with butter. I understand some people have…

This belief is innate in us. We hope to find the Ross to our Rachel, the Prince to our Cinderella, or the Will to our Kate. We grow up believing that some boy is going to come along, look us in the eyes, and that will be it. We are girls, we dream about the day that our prince will find us. It is pathetic, really, but it is not completely our fault. We are born with the hope in our hearts, and the world around us…

It is like almost anything I may want to eat or drink like everyone else is not the right choice for me. Not that being aware of what you eat and drink are just for people with diabetes, but everybody should be. There is no fun in not enjoying at least one drink, or maybe two while out with friends or family.
