Dog Elected Mayor Of Cormorant, Minnesota — Again

Duke may be the most popular politician in America, winning re-election for a landmark third time in a landslide. 

What’s his secret? Probably the fact that he’s a dog, and everyone loves dogs. 

In a vote held over the weekend, the 9-year-old Great Pyrenees won his third consecutive term as mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota. Voters paid $ 1 each to cast ballots in the election, which was held during the annual “Cormorant Daze” festival. 

Everybody voted for Duke, except for one vote for his girlfriend, Lassie,” David Rick, Duke’s owner, told local ABC station WDAY. 

As mayor, Duke appears on three highway billboards promoting the community.

While Duke’s role is somewhat unusual, he’s not the first animal to be elected to office in the U.S. Roadtrippers has a fascinating look at some of the nation’s non-human mayors, including two other dogs, a cat, a cow and a beer-drinking goat named Mayor Clay Henry III.

Capistrano

Capistrano


This is a story for the “Baby Boom” generation and for their progeny as well. This is a tale for anyone who has wistfully dreamed of personal fulfillment. For those who contemplate the shedding of the shackles of conformity, of repetitive task completion, of living to satisfy the expectations of others, Michael Campbell is a man well worth meeting. Michael defi nes his own, “Castle in Spain”, his statement of individual dream fulfillment and he works tirelessly to achieve it. Michael’s singular focus becomes a beacon to others. Some raft together with him to his immense benefit while others become steadfast in their attempts to sink him. Capistrano, a club for gentlemen in the heart of Metro Manila, rises to become the premier night spot in a city famous for its ability to gratify the nocturnal, nefarious desires of those who enjoy the embrace of business success. And those, as well, in sequined splendor, whose agenda it is to satisfy those needs, to achieve their own goals. Capistrano is, in microcosm, South East Asia in the late 1980’s. At once a bastion of sensual overload, it houses the unholy alliance of those with means and those who trade in their desires. Capistrano will make you laugh out loud, it will make you cry, and, in the process make you think about your own present and what possibilities lie untapped within.

These Underwater Yoga Photos Prove The Practice Is Truly Magical

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.

Donald Trump’s Whiny Tweets Are Actually Perfect As Emo Lyrics

Donald Trump channels his inner emo in this hilarious new mashup video.

Musical artist Nick Lutsko transformed some of the GOP presidential candidate’s most recent ranting tweets into an expressive, early noughties-style song.

“On August 14, 2016, Donald Trump wrote some sad, whiny tweets about Hillary Clinton and the media,” says a message at the start of the music video.

“We turned them into an early 2000s emo song.”

YouTube channel “Super Deluxe“ posted the short clip Friday, and it’s now going viral.

Check it out 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.

Rockport Works Shoes Women’s Composite Toe RK663 EH Work Boots


Hard work requires durable, protective footwear. If you encounter hazardous conditions at your job, you’ll want a pair of these Rockport Works RK663 Women’s Brown EH Composite Toe Work Boots. They’re packed with safety features to keep you protected on the job and offer the comfort you need to get the job done.A combination of water-resistant materials and construction helps protect the foot from getting wet in environments where excess water is present. The upper of these Rockport boots is made with waterproof Crazy Horse leather to keep your feet dry and comfortable during the day. Crazy Horse is a full-grain, smoothly finished leather which has easy maintenance, absorbs 40% of moisture and is water-resistant for up to 2 hours. Oil is applied under pressure at a high temperature to achieve a rugged finish to these composite toe boots. Oil tanning not only makes the leather soft and flexible, but also improves its resistance to water, stains, and damage. In addition, the Hydro-Defense waterproof bootie construction ensures your feet will stay dry. Moisture-wicking nylon mesh lines the inside of these Rockport Works boots. This opened woven textile construction is lightweight and provides maximum ventilation, along with a foot-cooling system. It moves moisture away from your skin to keep your feet cool and comfortable throughout your hectic day if you wear these safety toe boots. A removable EVA cushion insert features adiPRENE by Adidas.

You can easily remove the insert to clean or replace if needed.The dual-density, polyurethane midsole and rubber traction bottom outsole of these EH boots with adiPRENE offers even more shock absorption. PU is a foamed structure that contains tiny air bubbles, making the material lightweight, flexible, and shock-absorbing. Rubber has superior slip-, puncture- and cut-resistance compared to PVC, and its excellent low temperature properties allow the material to stay supple in cold temperatures. In addition, rubber also resists bases, acids, alcohols, and diluted water solutions of most chemicals that are water soluble.Direct attach construction fuses the rubber outsole of these slip-resistant boots to the fibers of the upper, producing a tough, watertight bond. This type of construction ensures the footwear is both lightweight and flexible.Meeting or exceeding ASTM F2413-05 standards for protective footwear, this pair of brown boots features a lightweight, extra wide composite toe. The toe cap — made from a non-ferrous, elastomeric material — is lightweight and won’t conduct heat or electricity. In addition, the 100% non-metallic boots won’t activate metal detectors either, making them security-friendly.This safety footwear also provides protection when coming into contact with live circuits, wires, or highly charged electrical equipment.

Derailment And How To Manage It

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.

Harry Reid’s retiring? Enter piles of dark money

By: Ashley Balcerzak

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid’s looming retirement leaves quite the vacuum to fill in Nevada. The contest to replace one of the body’s longest-serving Democrats is labeled a toss-up between former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto (D) and Republican Rep. Joe Heck. And with Heck running for a promotion, he leaves behind an open playing field for his District 3 seat.

Adding even more intrigue to the races: A whole lot of money coming from undisclosed sources.

The Sagebrush State’s Senate contest has attracted $ 3.4 million so far from groups that don’t identify their donors; that puts the race third in dark money dollars, close behind Pennsylvania and Ohio. The race to fill Heck’s place in southern Nevada has seen nearly $ 2 million spent, the most dark money of any House race and well more than the majority of Senate races.

“Reid wants to preserve his legacy and Democrats want to pick up a majority, and without Nevada, that’s going to be tough to do,” said David Damore, professor of political at University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

On the Senate side, Cortez Masto’s campaign has raised slightly more than Heck’s: $ 8.7 million to $ 7.4 million. But adding dark money (and outside money overall) to the mix keeps the scales more balanced. Cortez Masto is facing $ 736,000 worth of attacks from the Kochs’ Americans for Prosperity, the shadowy national security nonprofit SecureAmericaNow.org (headed by Allen Roth, a longtime aide to cosmetics heir Ronald Lauder) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber, which has spent $ 18.7 million total so far this election and $ 2.7 million in Nevada’s Senate race alone, spent $ 1.6 million of that to prop up retired Air Force officer Thomas Heck (who got 3 percent of the vote in the GOP primary) and $ 400,000 supporting Rep. Joe Heck (no relation to Thomas Heck). 

The left has provided some help for Cortez Masto. The environment-focused nonprofit League of Conservation Voters has spent $ 710,000 supporting her, and Majority Forward, a group linked to the Senate Majority PAC run by former Dem staffers and advisers connected to Reid, has paid out $ 251,000 attacking Heck.

“This is arguably the most important Senate race this year because it’s the only Senate seat that the Dems have to defend,” said political analyst Jon Ralston.

Super PACs in the race, including Freedom Partners Action Fund on the right and Senate Majority PAC on the left, have added another $ 4.8 million in spending – $ 2.8 million of it to against Cortez Masto and $ 2 million to hurt Heck. Though super PACs are required to disclose their donors, they don’t always do so, as when they accept money from shadowy LLCs.

These totals represent only the spending that has been reported to the FEC. One Nation, a dark money group with deep ties to Crossroads GPS, has spent $ 2.3 million on ads praising Heck, while Concerned Veterans for America, a group funded by the Kochs’ donor network, has run at least one ad showing veterans praising Heck for “leading the charge to fix the VA.”

Last ditch effort in the House

Most of the spending by politically active nonprofits in the race to fill Heck’s seat in southern Nevada saw almost $ 2 million in dark money – the total of which was nearly triple that of the next highest House race, Georgia’s third district.

The activity centered around the crowded June 14 primary, where six Democrats and seven Republicans vied to be their party’s candidate for District 3. Republican and Tea Party darling Danny Tarkanian and Democrat Jacky Rosen fought their way through to the general, but not without opposition from the dark money groups. They mostly sided with failed Republican contender and state Rep. Michael Roberson, who raised $ 829,000 mostly from individuals

“That was a last ditch attempt to save Roberson,” Ralston said. “It was the biggest last minute buy I’ve ever seen.”

The bulk of the dark money originated with the 501(c)(4) Ending Spending, an Alexandria-based group run by J. Joe Ricketts, who founded brokerage firm TD Ameritrade and whose family owns the Chicago Cubs. Ricketts also founded a super PAC called Ending Spending Action Fund. The 501(c)’s general counsel, Brian Baker, is a former adviser to Sen. Bob Dole, R-Kan.

The group, which focuses on the national debt, boosted Roberson with $ 545,000 in positive messaging, and about $ 1 million against his primary opponents Tarkarian and Republican state Rep. Michele Fiore.

Last election cycle, Ending Spending poured the majority of its $ 4.2 million in independent expenditures into Colorado’s Senate race, spending $ 1.8 million to back winning candidate Cory Gardner (R-Color.) and $ 1.5 million against the incumbent, former Democratic Sen. Mark Udall.

Roberson got an additional $ 250,000 bump in support from the 501(c) Main Street Advocacy, linked with former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman’s conservative 501(c)(4), American Action Network.

“Roberson mostly carried the governor’s agenda with him, which included a huge tax increase so he was vulnerable,” Damore said.

As for the campaign committee cash, Tarkanian has raised almost double that of Rosen, $ 942,000 to her $ 558,000. The Republican nominee has had practice raising money to run for public office, coming up short in bids for state Senate in 2004, secretary of state in 2006, Senate in 2010 and District 4 in 2012. This time around, his top donors come from employees at Station Casinos ($ 22,000), Brady Industries ($ 19,000) and Domain.Com Inc. ($ 11,000).

To help turn the open seat blue, Harry Reid handpicked Jacky Rosen, a software developer and president of a synagogue in Henderson, Nev. The first time congressional candidate’s campaign brought in $ 558,000, with top donors including employees from pro-choice PAC EMILY’s List and unions. 

But it’s only August. Assuming history repeats itself to some degree, we should expect a lot more money to come. In 2012, less than a fourth of all outside spending had been doled out. Outside group spending for the Nevada Senate race is around $ 11.5 million, and for the congressional seat, close to $ 2 million.

There are also the megadonors to think about. Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, who played in Nevada’s 2012 Senate race, has so far contributed $ 2,700 to Joe Heck’s campaign, and his wife Miriam gave another $ 5,200. Billionaire and CEO of Wynn Resorts, Steve Wynn, has came out in support of Heck, has not yet contributed the funds, at least in traceable ways.

Meditation For A Blessed Election

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.

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.

Donald Trump Attempts To Salvage His Campaign With Leadership Shakeup

Donald Trump restructured his campaign leadership Tuesday in a desperate attempt to turn around his flagging presidential bid.

The GOP presidential nominee hired Steve Bannon, executive chairman of the conservative website Breitbart News, to be his campaign CEO and named Kellyanne Conway, a Republican pollster and Trump campaign adviser, as his new campaign manager.

The shakeup followed a miserable month for the Trump campaign, in which the nominee made a series of gaffes and the high-profile defections of prominent Republicans both contributed to a steep slide in the businessman’s poll numbers and approval ratings.

The addition of Bannon and Conway to the campaign’s leadership is widely seen as a demotion for Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort, a veteran GOP operative. Manafort assumed sole responsibility for Trump’s campaign in July, after Trump fired longtime campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

Trump and Conway both confirmed to news outlets early Wednesday that Manafort would retain his title of campaign chairman, but they did not offer any details about what his role would be within the new campaign structure. 

“I want to win,” Trump told The Wall Street Journal late Tuesday. “That’s why I’m bringing on fantastic people who know how to win and love to win.”

With fewer than 12 weeks to go in the 2016 campaign, many of Trump’s aides and advisors in recent days acknowledged that a major change would be needed in order for him to remain competitive against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton through November. 

During a speech Tuesday night in Wisconsin, Trump appeared to be trying to connect with minority and independent voters, tamping down his natural urge to attack his critics, exaggerate facts, and speak off the cuff.

As with many of Trump’s so-called “pivots,” however, this new, measured style is unlikely to last.

The hiring of Bannon ― a brash former Goldman Sachs banker with no experience running a political campaign ― was widely seen Wednesday as a sign that Trump intends to embrace the pugilistic, divisive style of campaigning that he believes won him the GOP nomination.

Known as a devil-may-care conservative, Bannon’s populist and nationalist sympathies reflect his longstanding disgust with both major political parties.  Like Trump, Bannon enjoys needling the political establishment.

“Bannon will play to Trump’s worst sensibilities,” said a former Trump aide who requested anonymity to discuss his former boss.

Trump decision to hire Bannon came after months of conversations with the news executive. According to the Washignton Post, Bannon urged the impulsive, angry presidential nominee to ignore people who wanted him to tone it down. 

The advice resonated with Trump, who has resisted calls to “pivot” throughout his campaign. “I am who I am,” Trump said in an interview with a Wisconsin TV station Tuesday. “I don’t want to change. Everyone talks about, ‘Oh, well you’re going to pivot, you’re going to.’ I don’t want to pivot. I mean, you have to be you. If you start pivoting, you’re not being honest with people.”

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.

Pre-Start

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.

How Trump Is Costing Other Republican Candidates

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.

Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

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

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

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

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

11 Things You Need To Know About Introverts

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had my introversion mistaken for something else. It’s either mistaken as coldness, arrogance, or weirdness, just to name a few things.

I can see why, too. Introversion isn’t an easy thing to read. Most of my friends are, as you might’ve guessed, boistrously extroverted. On occasion it’s hard for me to sit down and feel comfortable around most of them because they’re so animated; I feel like I have to be doing something too.

Which brings me to this. There’s a few things that you, the world, need to know about (most) introverts.

We’re Constantly Observing

We’re quiet all right, but that doesn’t mean nothing’s happening in our minds. Extroverts leave it all out there–they think things and then say them almost immediately. For us, we think things and don’t say them. Not yet, at least.

While you’re watching us in silence our minds are probably off 1,000 miles from here, thinking about next week’s workload, that time we stole the cookie from the kitchen counter, and why that person over there keeps glancing at us.

We’re Insanely Intuitive

Our intuition is both a good and bad thing. Almost all of the time introverts can feel when something goes off kilter immediately. That’s the good part. The bad part is that when we’re wrong about something we still feel right because our intuition feels so strong.

We see the unseen in everyday situations. It’s because we’re so observant and dedicating all of our energy to taking in our surroundings.

We Hate Small Talk

I despise small talk. That’s why it’s hard for me to talk to somebody without getting bored. I want to get to the heart of some issues. I want to talk about the world, what motivates you, and what the hardest time of your life was. This is how I connect with somebody.

If we ever seem disinterested or bored, you can bet that our ears will perk up a little bit when you ask us something meaningful. Quite honestly you’ll have us around your finger for a few minutes.

We Overthink Everything

And I mean everything. It’s impossible for something to happen without overanalyzing it 500 different ways. It’s because our brains are on overload and our intution keeps whispering to us that something else must be going on.

Many times we’re right, but sometimes we’re wrong as well. Just know that staring off into the distance is probably an introvert overanalyzing something exceedingly insignificant.

We Get Flustered

The easy definition of an introvert is one that recharges their batteries when they’re alone. This means that every gathering we go to slowly strips away at our social endurance until we need to be by ourselves.

We get flustered pretty easily because we’re taking in everything that our environment is giving us. I like to compare it to how kid Superman was in Man of Steel when he couldn’t focus on anything because his mind was picking up everything.

That’s right, we introverts are like Superman. Never forget it.

We Can’t Explain Things As Well As We’d Like

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve felt helpess because I couldn’t explain something the way that it was in my mind. Yeah, I can write up a storm, but in the moment I can’t think of much to say that’s going to back up my point.

This is because we’re still working through so many things in our mind at once. But when the dust settles in our thoughts we’ll have a whole lot to say–the problem with that is it’s already too late most of the time.

Many Times We Just Don’t Know What To Say

Imagine a kitchen full of chefs yelling at each other–I’m talking with Gordon Ramsay fierceness. That’s what the commotion feels like in my mind half the time

I’m not crazy, but I just have a ton of stuff going on. It’s because I’m trapped under layers and layers of thought that it’s hard for me to pull out of it and talk about anything other than that. And by that time we’re already so far along that you likely won’t have the slightest clue of what we’re talking about if we did decide to explain it to you. It’s around that time when we explain everything that we get a weird look like, “What made you think about that?”

We Get Hurt Easily

I feel this one a lot, but that’s not to say that I walk around like the Sad Dwarf from Snow White all the time. This just means that when somebody does turn their attention towards me to lay into me a bit, I take it five times worse than the average person.

I’m not saying to never tell us how it is–quite the opposite–I’m saying that when you do give us criticism, to do it with some care.

When We Do Let You In, We’ll Do Anything For You

I have a handful of friends. I don’t really take much time to check in with anybody else because I feel a lot of love for a select few and, in true introvert fashion, I simply don’t have the social endurance to keep up with 4,000 people.

Those select few are the same people I would do anything for.

When We Say Things, We Mean Them

The weight of our words mean a lot to us. When we do decide to say something, we mean it with all of our hearts. We’re not going to make a promise that we can’t keep.

We’re Best One on One

Big groups of friends don’t suit us well. We’d much rather allow somebody else to bask in the spotlight while we fade off into the background. But we do shine when we’re one on one with people. That’s when we make true connections–when we can focus on just one person and give them our due diligence.

Being an introvert isn’t the easiest thing in the world. Often it seems like I’m misconstrued a handful of times per day, but when the opposite party knows what they’re working with, it might make things a little bit easier to understand so they don’t, in turn, overanalyze your quietness for something else.

Friday Talking Points — GOP Anti-Trump Rants

This column has always loved a good rant. Most of the time, we provide our own rant at the end of the column, on a subject too big to be contained in talking points. 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.

The Blessing

The Blessing


"Another delightful and entertaining story with characters who walk off the pages into the reader’s heart…truly a winner," said "Rendezvous" about Jude Deveraux’s "An Angel for Emily." "All sorts of clever turns and surprises. Definitely a keeper…wow " raved the "Philadelphia Inquirer." Now the beloved "New York Times" bestselling author concocts a charming, piquant tale about a take-charge businessman and a daffy but wise young widow, the special bonds of brotherhood, and the eternal love between mother and child, all set in a small Kentucky town during Christmas, the season of… The Blessing When wealthy, hard-driving corporate genius Jason Wilding reluctantly takes a break from his business and his husband-hunting girlfriends for a Christmas visit to his hometown in Abernathy, Kentucky, he has no idea what his physician brother, David, has in store for him. It seems that Amy Thompkins, a whimsical young widow with definite artistic talent, has captured David’s heart, but courting her with a demanding baby in tow has been difficult. In order to pursue her, he persuades Jason to move into her home and take care of her spoiled but adorable son, Max, for a week. For a fiercely efficient CEO, it’s an impossible scene: a falling-down old house; buckets on the dining room floor to catch the rain; a widow living on next to nothing, with no marketable skills. But Amy’s joy for life, her love for her son, and her sparkling humor are irresistible — and tiny Max adores Jason beyond reason. Soon, Jason sees Amy and her future as a prime target for his strategic planning. Importing his private chef to prepare the little one’s food and buying a baby store so that his mothercan get real bargains are just the beginning. Because enigmatic Jason is thawing — the tender feelings and longing he has buried for years are begging to be heard. And when he smiles, Amy is reminded of a Mount Rushmore monument finally cracking up — in the best possible way. The mutual attraction is glowing bright, but what to do about David? Once again, Jude Deveraux’s deft hand and loving vision conjure up a novel full of surprises and delights, in a story that will warm all our hearts and make us believe in the power of miracles, large and small. It’s a tale for all seasons, and a love story to remember always.

Why I’m Saying No To Love For Now

There’s a hilarious scene in The Internship where Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson sit down to go over a few of Google’s workplace rules. Among the questions posed to the interns are whether dating a fellow co-worker is acceptable. Obviously the answer is no, much to Vaughn and Wilson’s dismay, and they sarcastically quip back, “so we say no to love?”

That’s kind of where I’m at right now.

It’s funny because all I see popping up on my newsfeed are pictures of yet another couple getting married. There’s so many smiles, so many flowers, and so many staged black and white pictures of husband and wife staring deeply into each others eyes–a completely fake moment caught on film.

I feel horrible for these people. I can’t help but think that they’re missing out on so many things by getting hitched so early. I mean, they’re going to wake up next to that same person for the rest of their lives. After the first year or two the rosy-colored glasses are off. I feel like many of us fall in love with the idea of being in love.

And then there’s me. I spend my days doing one thing: exactly what I want to do. And I mean exactly. My plans aren’t beholden to somebody else. I go where I want to go for dinner and don’t have to second-guess whether whoever I’m with is happy with my restaurant pick.

But here’s why I’m really saying no to love: because I’m not ready in the slightest. I’m not ready because I want to see the world, submerge myself in cultures, and become the best possible person I can be. I don’t want to get married to complete myself. I want to complete myself and then get married.

And the best way for me to complete myself is to put myself in some crazy situations. A lot of people think I’m stupid for road tripping the U.S. alone, picking up random people from London along the way.

I think that it’s been an incredibly fun way to learn more about myself. And really all kinds of travel will teach you more about yourself. You’ll gain new perspectives in congruence with the miles notched.

That’s right, I’m saying no to love to focus on me. But in a weird way focusing on me will only benefit whoever I end up being with at the end of all this. In a roundabout fashion I actually am doing my future soul mate a favor–if I have one. At the end of my travels I’ll be at least a little bit wiser than the stupid little boy that I am now.

That’s why. I’m not staying single for selfish reasons–I promise. There’s so many days that I do wish I was in a relationship (okay, the black and white pictures are to blame), but I know that jumping into something that I want right now might be counterintuitive to my growth as a human being, and my overall character as a future husband.

So, for now, and I’m sorry about this Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, I’m going to say a resounding “no” to love.

The Source of U.S. Headaches in Asia

2016-08-11-1470907592-6776175-UsAsia.jpg
Image Source
Heading towards the presidential election in November, the world is paying attention to the fierce battle ensuing between the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, and the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton. Particular attention is being paid to the speech and conduct of candidate Trump.

On the one hand, President Obama, with less than half a year left in office, is becoming increasingly detached from the process as a “lame duck” president. In light of this, many theses summarizing “The Age of Obama” have been emerging from think tanks and researchers. Though met with little interest in the United States, as U.S. President, Barack Obama has taken up numerous strategies, including restoring diplomatic relations with Cuba and Iran, as well as being the first sitting president to visit Hiroshima. All of these actions are historically significant to the affected countries.

Particularly ground-breaking among these actions was his first visit to Hiroshima, a city on which the U.S. dropped an atomic bomb that took the lives of countless residents. This visit had great significance not only for the atomic-bomb victims and their families, but also for the Japanese government and citizens of Japan. It was, in front of the Atomic Dome, a moment of true reconciliation between two countries that once fought each other to the death as bitter enemies.

There were concerned voices in the U.S. that Japan was seeking an apology from President Obama; however, these concerns were unfounded. After a historic 17 minute speech, he embraced the victims before the Atomic Dome, a moment 70 years in the making in which the United States of America and Japan finally reached true reconciliation.
2016-08-11-1470907713-7981801-USSouthKorea.jpg
Image Source
However, in contrast to this reconciliation, South Korea has, on the other hand, had an implausible reaction. South Korea, as a victim itself, sent its own delegation of atomic bomb survivors to Hiroshima during President Obama’s visit. Additionally, the group demanded that as president he should apologize to South Korea. Of course, this rude demand was not fulfilled, and is just another fact that reveals South Korea is the source of U.S. headaches in Asia.

It goes without saying that President Obama’s visit to Hiroshima is a move towards resolving an issue that has long been taboo between the United States and Japan. Though it is a fact that there were American prisoners and Korean soldiers within the Japanese military when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, it is South Koreans who–during a time of historical reconciliation between the U.S. and Japan–are not only interfering with that process, but also calmly thrusting the demand that “South Koreans were victims as well and deserve an apology.”

With a more powerful China every rapidly altering the status quo, the most important factor in dealing with this is close cooperation between U.S., Japan, and South Korea as partners in Asia.
However, through these actions by South Korea, they are disrupting Japan-South Korean relations and United States-Korean relations, giving rise to schisms in these trilateral relationships that will ultimately be utilized by China.

Last year, Mark Lippert, U.S. Ambassador to South Korea, was attacked and received life threatening injuries, putting doubt into the U.S.’s plans to deploy THAAD missiles to protect South Korea from missiles threats. In this state of affairs, the United States and Japan cannot deepen their alliance with South Korea. President Obama has worked tenaciously to bring about reconciliation between the United States and Japan; however, South Korea does not recognize these efforts.

As long as South Korea repeats these kinds of actions, it will not be possible to deal with China’s expansion into the South China Sea. Though it may be derisive at the end of her administration, President Park should also have a sense of responsibility for this as she manages her administration.

Why This Inspiring Woman Chose To Celebrate Her 83rd Birthday At 57

Jeni Stepanek is 57. But she recently decided to celebrate her “83rd” birthday.

The birthday party was a part of Jeni’s bucket list, which she created due to a rare form of muscular dystrophy that has left her confined to a wheelchair and dependent on an oxygen tank. Yet, Jeni’s life and legacy have since stretched longer than anybody thought possible.

If her name sounds familiar, it’s because Jeni’s son Mattie, who suffered from the same disease, was something of a celebrity before he died in 2004 at age 13. Though young, Mattie was a talented poet, thoughtful philosopher, peacemaker ― and one of Oprah’s greatest spiritual teachers.

“Mattie was one of the most authentic, loving souls I’ve ever known,” Oprah said. “His spirit will always abide in me.”

Mattie touched countless lives with his best-selling books and message of peace. His mother fostered and encouraged his gift ― even as she battled dysautonomic mitochondrial myopathy herself. The disease also claimed the lives of all four of Jeni’s children, to whom she unknowingly passed the genes. Jeni was diagnosed with the adult-onset version of the disease in 1992; her two oldest children had already died, and her third would die later that year. Mattie was 2 at the time.

Coping with the deaths of her children and declining health has been harrowing. Then, in 2015, Jeni received another devastating diagnosis: cancer. She faced this hardship as she has faced so much else, with grace and strength. And she recently celebrated the miracle of another birthday.

Surrounded by family and friends who came to honor her, Jeni attended her “83rd” birthday party. Like Mattie, the way Jeni lives her life has been an inspiration to many.

“She’s the most amazing, strong, powerful, willful woman I’ve ever known, read or heard about,” Oprah said.

Oprah dropped in on the party to surprise Jeni, who appeared both stunned and thrilled to see her. When the two got together to talk, Jeni opened up about what helped her stay strong in the face of so much adversity.

“God gave me a purpose on earth, and I live celebrating that purpose,” Jeni said. “I am a strong person, spiritually… No matter how sick I am, no matter how ill, how much pain I’m in, I wake up every morning with just, ‘Wow. Thank you. I’m alive.’”

‘One day, we will all die. But on all the other days, we will not.’ And so, today, let’s toast and celebrate to all those other days, with gratitude.
Jeni Stepanek, paraphrasing author Per Olov Enquist

When the difficulties feel like too much to bear, Jeni added, she looks to her loved ones for their support. “Sometimes when I can’t come up with a good enough reason to take that next breath, I let somebody else give me a reason,” she said.

One of those people, oftentimes, is her late son Mattie. 

“Before he died, he challenged me: ‘Choose to inhale. Do not lay down in the ashes of my life. Do not simply breathe to exist. Choose to inhale,’” Jeni said. “I draw strength from that. I choose to inhale. I don’t just survive; I thrive.”

Jeni also honors Mattie’s memory by committing to fulfill his peaceful purpose through the Mattie J.T. Stepanek Foundation. At her party, Jeni shared her own message of love, light and gratitude, with some help from the author Per Olov Enquist.

“Because this began as a bucket list, which is something you do when you’re faced with some overwhelming odds of surviving, I want to leave you with this thought,” Jeni said. “’One day, we will all die. But on all the other days, we will not.’ And so, today, let’s toast and celebrate to all those other days, with gratitude. We are family. We are an amazing mosaic. Party on.”

Trevor Noah Agrees With Donald Trump That The Election Is Rigged

Brace yourself: Trevor Noah agrees on something with Donald Trump.

The Daily Show” host is no fan of the GOP presidential candidate, but he says Trump’s correct when he claims this November’s election will be rigged.

“Donald Trump is right,” Noah said Monday. “We’ve uncovered evidence of election rigging throughout the system.”

But the comedian went on to say that the vote won’t be fixed in quite the way that the former reality TV personality thinks it is.

Upheaval

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?

The Green Party Picks Its Presidential Ticket

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.
Jill Stein

“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.

Workshop to Office: Two Generations of Italian Women in New York City, 1900-1950

Workshop to Office: Two Generations of Italian Women in New York City, 1900-1950


In turn-of-the-century New York, Italian immigrant daughters spent their youth in factories while their mothers did irregular wage labor as well as domestic work at home. By the I940s, Italian-American girls were in school, socializing and preparing for white-collar jobs that would not begin until they were eighteen. Drawing on a range of sources from censuses to high school yearbooks, Miriam Cohen examines shifting patterns in the family roles, work lives, and schooling of two generations of Italian-American women. Paying particular attention to the importance of these women’s pragmatic daily choices, she documents how major social and political changes helped create new opportunities and constraints for the second generation.While financial need was a powerful factor in determining the behavior of the first generation women, Cohen shows, they and their daughters succeeded in adapting family survival strategies to new work patterns. Once the second generation was married, their careers mirrored those of the first in many ways: they raised children, cared for the home, and took on paid employment when necessary. Unlike their mothers, however, these Italian-American wives could also participate in the growing consumerism surrounding home and childcare. Throughout, Cohen compares the changing Italian-American experience with that of Jewish women, discovering significant similarities in these experiences by 1950.As well as presenting a nuanced portrait of one gr
