Trump Supporters Reveal Exactly What He’d Have To Do To Lose Their Votes

Jimmy Kimmel asked Trump supporters what The Donald would have to do to lose their votes. And as it turns out, it’s quite a bit.

For some of his followers, not even murder, smoking crack or punching the Pope would be enough to make them step off the Trump Train.

“It doesn’t matter if Donald Trump embellished his relationship with Ronald Reagan, his supporters don’t care,” said the host of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Claiming Trump voters were “passionate to the point” that the presumptive GOP presidential nominee could say or do absolutely anything and they’d still stick with him, Kimmel decided to test his hypothesis out.

He sent a reporter out onto the street to ask Trump supporters what it would take for the real estate magnate to lose their vote. 

Warning; some of their answers may alarm you.

Check out their responses in the clip above.

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

8 Ways Smart People Use Failure to Their Advantage

2016-06-10-1465584721-7878179-8WaysSmartPeopleUseFailuretoTheirAdvantageHP

One of the biggest roadblocks to success is the fear of failure. Fear of failure is worse than failure itself because it condemns you to a life of unrealized potential.

“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” -Winston Churchill

This sounds rather easy and intuitive, but it’s very hard to do when the consequences of failure are severe.

The people who make history–true innovators–take things a step further and see failure as a mere stepping stone to success. Thomas Edison is a great example. It took him 1,000 tries to develop a light bulb that actually worked. When someone asked him how it felt to fail 1,000 times, he said, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”

That attitude is what separates the successes from the failures. Thomas Edison isn’t the only one. J. K. Rowling’s manuscript for Harry Potter was only accepted after twelve publishers denied it, and even then she was only paid a nominal advance. Oprah Winfrey lost her job as a Baltimore news anchor for becoming too emotionally involved in her stories, a quality that became her trademark. Henry Ford lost his financial backers twice before he was able to produce a workable prototype of an automobile. The list goes on and on.

“If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.” -Henry Ford

So, what separates the people who let their failures derail them from those who use failure to their advantage? Some of it comes down to what you do, and the rest comes down to what you think.

The actions you take in the face of failure are critical to your ability to recover from it, and they have huge implications for how others view you and your mistakes. There are five actions you must take when you fail that will enable you to succeed in the future and allow others to see you positively in spite of your failure.

1. Break the bad news yourself. If you’ve made a mistake, don’t cross your fingers and hope that no one will notice, because someone is going to–it’s inevitable. When someone else points out your failure, that one failure turns into two. If you stay quiet, people are going to wonder why you didn’t say something, and they’re likely to attribute this to either cowardice or ignorance.

2. Offer an explanation, but don’t make excuses. Owning your mistakes can actually enhance your image. It shows confidence, accountability, and integrity. Just be sure to stick to the facts. “We lost the account because I missed the deadline” is a reason. “We lost the account because my dog was sick all weekend and that made me miss the deadline” is an excuse.

3. Have a plan for fixing things.
Owning up to a mistake is one thing, but you can’t end it there. What you do next is critical. Instead of standing there, waiting for someone else to clean up your mess, offer your own solutions. It’s even better if you can tell your boss (or whomever) the specific steps that you’ve already taken to get things back on track.

4. Have a plan for prevention. In addition to having a plan for fixing things, you should also have a plan for how you’ll avoid making the same mistake in the future. That’s the best way to reassure people that good things will come out of your failure.

5. Get back on the horse. It’s important that you don’t let failure make you timid. That’s a mindset that sucks you in and handicaps you every time you slip up. Take enough time to absorb the lessons of your failure, and as soon as you’ve done that, get right back out there and try again. Waiting only prolongs bad feelings and increases the chance that you’ll lose your nerve.

Your attitude when facing failure is just as important as the actions you take. Using failure to your advantage requires resilience and mental strength, both hallmarks of emotional intelligence. When you fail, there are three attitudes you want to maintain.

6. Perspective is the most important factor in handling failure. People who are skilled at rebounding after failure are more likely to blame the failure on something that they did–the wrong course of action or a specific oversight–rather than something that they are. People who are bad at handling failure tend to blame failure on their laziness, lack of intelligence, or some other personal quality, which implies that they had no control over the situation. That makes them more likely to avoid future risk-taking.

7. Optimism is another characteristic of people who bounce back from failure. That sense of optimism is what keeps people from feeling like failure is a permanent condition. Instead, they tend to see each failure as a building block to their ultimate success because of the learning it provides.

8. Persistence. Optimism is a feeling of positivity; persistence is what you do with it. It’s optimism in action. When everybody else says, “Enough is enough” and decides to quit and go home, persistent people shake off those failures and keep going. Persistent people are special because their optimism never dies. This makes them great at rising from failure.

Bringing It All Together

Failure is a product of your perspective. What one person considers a crushing defeat, another sees as a minor setback. The beauty is that you can change how you see failure so that you can use it to better yourself.

How do you handle failure? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

5 Yoga Poses To Do Tonight That Will Help You Ace Tomorrow

After a busy and stressful day, what should be one of life’s simplest actions can often feel like the most difficult: falling asleep. If your thoughts are racing and your body is tense, getting high-quality, restorative sleep may seem impossible.

Enter the more than 5,000-year-old practice of yoga, which relaxes the body and soothes the mind. To help set you up for a great night’s sleep, we partnered with Sleep Number and asked popular yoga instructors across the country about the gentle poses they would recommend incorporating into our bedtime routines. Their answers, along with illustrated visual aids, are below. Take a look, talk to your doctor if necessary and sweet dreams. 

1. Marjaryasana-Bitilasana (Cat-Cow Stretch)

This combination of poses stretches the spine, hips, neck and abdomen, and can help relieve lower back pain. Yoga-teacher trainer Rachel Scott said Marjaryasana-Bitilasana is perfect for “restoring mobility through the hips, spine and shoulders at the end of a long day.”

2. Bālāsana (Child’s Pose)  

This zero-impact, resting pose allows you to focus on breath and reflect, said Ashley Josephine Zuberi, a private yoga instructor. “If this is the only quiet time you get all day, savor it,” Zuberi said. “Just 10 deep breaths in Child’s Pose can begin to shift your mind into a calming state, prepping you for a restful night’s sleep.”

3. Supta Matsyendrasana (Reclined Spinal Twist)

The Reclined Spinal Twist is a “perfect choice for bedtime because it’s a great way to unwind,” said yoga teacher and blogger Erica Rodefer Winters of Spoiled Yogi. “Gentle twists stretch the spine and can help melt tension in the shoulders, chest and upper back.”

4. Viparita Karani (Legs-Up-The-Wall Pose)

Yoga instructor and artist Mary Catherine Starr likes to practice Viparita Karani before bed, which helps improve blood circulation and relieve stress, she said. Starr, who blogs at Starr Struck, added that the pose is a “great way to get grounded and release tension.”

5. Savasana (Corpse Pose)

Lying flat on your back in Savasana helps stimulate a relaxation response, explained yoga instructor Amy Dannheim, who has a blog and popular Instagram feed. “Your brain gets a chance to relax,” Dannheim said, “and all of the pieces of the day get put back together so you can fall asleep with less stress and more peace of mind.”

Just like diet and exercise, sleep is unique to each person and important for optimal health. Sleep Number® beds adjust on each side to your ideal level of firmness, comfort and support — your Sleep Number® setting — for your best possible sleep.

Your Money Matters: 21 Tips for Achieving Financial Security in the 21st Century

Your Money Matters: 21 Tips for Achieving Financial Security in the 21st Century


Your Money Matters, by prolific financial author and TV commentator Jonathan Pond, proposes a 21-point money-management program for those nearing retirement age as well as those for whom retirement is still a distant consideration. With humor and a clever division of the particulars into tip-packed chapters bearing such titles as “Live Beneath Your Means (Without Depriving Yourself),” “Learn How to Tolerate Your Loved One’s Annoying Financial Habits,” and “Bulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, but Pigs and Lambs Get Slaughtered,” Pond dispenses a wealth of practical data on handling “the most important financial matters that you’ll need to attend to in the 21st century.” A bold claim, but one backed up with a slew of sensible suggestions for increasing your savings and apportioning the resultant nest egg to provide comfortably for your future needs. Along the way, Pond offers opinions and outlines applicable strategies on issues including technology stocks as a viable investment, the need for long-term-care insurance, and the best ways to fund a child’s education or the care for an aging parent. He also includes pointers to pages on his Web site that offer additional information on health-insurance plans, home-equity loans, investment-allocation procedures, and many other supportive issues. –Howard Rothman

How To Gain Back Your Mental Clarity by Eliminating Heavy Metals [Article]

How To Gain Back Your Mental Clarity by Eliminating Heavy Metals [Article]


After educating the community for 18 months as a Non-Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) Health Speaker launching a series of health articles, books and a health blog – it’s very disheartening to see that many people are still succumbing to “preventable” and “curable” illnesses and diseases. Let’s face it – we live in a “brain-dead society.” What I found out by conducting extensive research is that most people’s brains have literally lost the ability to learn, thick and act because of an EXPLOSION of brain sicknesses and diseases such as Alzheimers, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinsons, Mental Illness, Autism, Brain Cancer, Depression, Brain Fog, etc. Heavy metals, such as mercury, aluminum and lead, exist in the environment and often end up entering the human body. Other heavy metals enter the body via food products and through pollution in the air. Alarming statistics shows that over 60% of people in nursing homes are in their late 40 or early 50. Many are there due to Alzheimers, Parkinsons and other brain diseases. The reason for this is their constant exposure to “heavy metals.

Bill Maher Says ‘Pride And Prejudice’ Won Out In UK’s Brexit Vote

Bill Maher turned to Jane Austen to explain the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union.

On Friday, the “Real Time with Bill Maher” host referenced two of the 18th century British writer’s novels while breaking down the surprise vote for Brexit.

“48 percent voted for ‘Sense and Sensibility,’” he said. “And 52 percent voted for ‘Pride and Prejudice.’”

The comedian said the issue of whether the U.K. should stay inside the European Union had been “hijacked by a bunch of anti-immigration isolationists who are obsessed with the idea that foreigners were stealing their jobs.”

“Thank God something like that never happened here,” he sarcastically added, in a clear nod towards Donald Trump.

Maher further mocked the presumptive GOP presidential candidate for being in favor of Brexit.

“Economists all over the world are saying this is a catastrophically stupid move, as evidence they offered lots of data, lots of charts, and the fact that Trump is for it,” he said.

Watch the full clip above.

 

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

3 Life-Changing Reasons To Kick The Gossip Habit

Several years ago I made a vow to give up gossiping and doing so has made me realize how dangerous it is, truly dangerous.

It’s so easy to get caught in an enticing yet unkind conversation about someone else. But if you’ve ever been the target of gossip, as I have been, you know how painful it is. No matter how we excuse it, talking behind another’s back is a harmful habit. My definition of gossip is simple:

Anything you wouldn’t say to
the person you’re talking about

The joke is that a secret is something you tell only one person at a time, but the result is a rumor that spreads like wildfire and alters how another person is perceived. Haven’t we all heard tittle-tattle and thought, Who knew? I had no idea! Beatle George Harrison said it memorably ~

Gossip is the Devil’s radio.

I know you don’t want to be known as a gossip, but it can be so tempting. So here are three reasons to motivate us to kick the habit and make a more positive impact on those around us.

  1. Gossip kills organizations. Whether it’s a global business, a school, a church, or a small partnership, talking behind others’ backs is death to the office. Fueling a negative perception about the boss, a direct report, or even a client saps positive energy from all concerned and diminishes the success of the organization.

    In his Forbes magazine article Mike Myatt names it the fastest way to kill corporate culture: “The emotional distress and political discord associated with gossip undermines workplace performance, and can be nothing short of disastrous.”

  2. Gossip kills families. Being part of a strong and loving family is our greatest blessing, one that creates a safe and secure place for everyone fortunate enough to be part of it. Yet when an estrangement occurs, members take sides, and attention is pulled away from taking care of one another and doing our best to contribute to this gift.

    My family is a large and loving one, but it too has fallen into this trap. Someone makes a mistake, the finger pointing begins, and the altered perception of this person grows until it’s no longer just gossip but a reason to pull back from the greater family. Fortunately our grandparents and parents were extraordinary models for us, so time goes by, wounds are healed, and we move on together.

  3. Gossip kills relationships. Women sitting around complaining about their husbands, men sharing jokes about wives, friends gossiping about the one who isn’t there. We might as well shoot ourselves in the foot, as the saying goes.

    Only once in our 35-year marriage did we gossip about one another, and that was our darkest time. Fortunately we each realized the stories were of our own creation, and we let go of self-fulfilling prophecies that were killing the loving relationship we’d enjoyed for so long.

This habit is indeed the most dangerous one, and the cost is beyond measure. If you’re serious about breaking it, ask yourself, What can I do to break this habit? In addition, here are solutions that are working for me.

  1. Be aware of the pain I have caused others with my gossip.
  2. Let go of my stories about others, one by one, until they’re all gone.
  3. Be present and positive.

And let’s all remember the wisdom of Socrates:

Strong minds discuss ideas, average minds
discuss events, weak minds discuss people.

I’d love to hear about your plans to break this habit! Either leave a comment by scrolling to the bottom of this page or write to me directly at jinny@bestyearyet.com.

The One Factor In The Brexit Vote No One Is Talking About

The U.K.’s historic vote to leave the European Union, many people believe, was driven by opinions on immigration

And it likely was influenced by the way people are psychologically wired. Analysts on Friday repeatedly cited voters’ emotions as the driver of Brexit. Many people may have voted with fear or anger as their primary motivator, even though it had been well known that leaving could have widespread consequences, including economic turmoil and adverse effects on public health

“We are leaving the EU and entering a dark and uncertain period,”Gary Younge, editor-at-large for The Guardian, wrote after the “leave” vote won Thursday’s referendum. “Offered a choice between fear of the unknown or fear of the foreigner, fear inevitably won. Britain lost.”

Why do we fall for fear or anger-based arguments?

Brexit supporters argued for strict controls on immigration, and said Britain’s membership in the EU led to loose borders. The EU’s free-movement policy allows European nationals to live and work in any EU state without a work permit. 

The anti-immigration outcry was heightened by the surge of migrants and refugees, including many from the war-torn Middle East. More than 1 million refugees have poured into Europe, primarily in the past year. 

The vote shows deep worry about immigrants and what they mean for job security, safety and economic growth — fears that many consider xenophobic.

It’s not hard to see the fear in Brexit supporters’ tweets:

Political language that incites fear by spotlighting terrorism risks, for example, can sway conservative voters, researchers say. Fearful voters are prone to choosing an outcome based on new information, often abandoning their previous loyalties or affiliations.

Many Brexit voters may have felt neutral or even uninformed about the EU, the alliance they voted to leave. The day after the referendum, many UK residents were Googling, ”What is the EU?”

Those who are angry are less likely to be invested in the political status quo and the options available to them. Studies show angry voters tend to be partisan and unreceptive to points that conflict with their own, according to the American Psychological Association.

Emotions can rule in the voting booth

Psychologists are increasingly finding that emotions can play a major role in elections. 

“Thinking and feeling go hand in hand. In any decision-making — including political decisions — how people feel about the information they’re being given is important,” Tereza Capelos, an expert in political psychology at Surrey University, told the BBC last year. “Emotions help people make decisions.”

Perhaps that’s why the Brexit decision was shocking. Those arguing for Britain to remain in the EU presented sensible reasons (public health, scientific research, the environment, the economy). But many people rejected those rational views and went with emotion. And for many, the result was devastating:

Europe isn’t the only place where fears and frustrations run amuck and influence voting. It’s happening in the U.S. as well, with Donald Trump riding his proposed ban on all Muslims from entering the U.S. to the Republican presidential nomination.

Of course, human nature is a complex construct. There are a lot of other psychological factors that can inform a person’s vote, from attack ads to a candidate’s physical appearance. But they all influence how an individual feels. That means emotions have a very large impact on important choices, like the Brexit referendum.

Fear and anger can have a lot of agency — but they don’t always make the best decisions. (You listening, America?)

The Big Change

The Big Change


The New York Times-bestselling history of the first half of the twentieth century-five decades that transformed America-from the author of Only Yesterday. During the first fifty years of the twentieth century, the United States saw two world wars, a devastating economic depression, and more social, political, and economic changes than in any other five-decade period before. Frederick Lewis Allen, former editor of Harper’s magazine, recounts these years-spanning World War I, the Progressive Era, the Great Depression, World War II, and the early Cold War-in vivid detail, from the fashions and customs of the times to major events that changed the course of history. Politically, the United States grew into its own as a global superpower during these years, even as domestic developments altered the everyday lives of its citizens. The introduction of the automobile, mass production, and organized labor changed the way Americans lived and worked, while innovations like penicillin and government regulation of food safety contributed to an increase in average life expectancy from forty-nine years in 1900 to sixty-eight years in 1950. With the development of a strong, centralized government, a thriving middle class, and widespread economic prosperity, the nation emerged from the Second World War transformed in virtually every way. Richly informative and delightfully readable, The Big Change is an indispensable volume charting the many changes that ushered in our contemporary age.

Build, Bernie, Build!

The Sanders campaign compiled an email list with 130 million names, a donor list that produced over $ 200 million in contributions, and a volunteer army of millions of enthusiastic supporters. The Democratic Party wants these lists, that money and those supporters. Good luck.

The establishment Democrats still don’t get it. Bernie’s passionate supporters actually believe in his agenda, and they view the Democrat Party as deeply entangled with Wall Street and the top 1 percent. They are not going to volunteer for Hillary no matter what Sanders says.

Rather than parsing words in the party platform (that Hillary and the rest of the establishment Democrats can and will ignore at will) Sanders should concentrate on launching a new movement organization right now — one that would mobilize for his democratic socialist agenda. We need an organization dedicated to reversing runaway inequality that can serve as a home for the incredible energy and idealism of his supporters.

Immediately, this new organization would have two goals: 1) defeat Trump; and 2) organize a million people to come to the Washington mall shortly after the inauguration to press for free higher education and a Wall Street speculation tax.

Why a new organization?
This is the perfect time to launch a large-scale progressive alliance with an organizational presence in every state. We need organization not just spontaneous eruptions that flower and wilt. We can’t just tweet an end to runaway inequality. We’ll need to systematically fight for it over a long period of time. We need an organizational structure that brings us together and connects our many issue and organizational silos. We should be able to go to Patterson, Pensacola or Pasadena to attend a meeting of a common organization that fights to reverse runaway inequality.

Bernie’s army of volunteers and small donors would likely support such a formation in large numbers if they thought it would really carry on the fight for the Sanders agenda.

Defeating Trump
The first task of this new movement would be to dump Trump. Instead of making a “lesser-of-two-evils” argument, we should make a positive claim that the “political revolution” Bernie has ignited would flourish more if Trump were not president.

Not only would Trump be a colossal disaster for this country, but his victory would make it much harder to fight for a progressive agenda. Instead of pressing for free higher education and single-payer health care, we would be fighting rear-guard actions against Muslim profiling and the building of the wall.

We don’t need to develop amnesia about Hillary’s Wall Street ties to understand that her election would provide a better organizing terrain on which to build a more powerful progressive movement. This is our positive reason to defeat Trump.

Bring a Million to the Mall
Defeating Trump is not enough. We need to plan right now for bold actions to prove to Congress that the Sanders agenda has massive grassroots support. Can we bring a million people to Washington right after the inauguration to demand that Congress pass a financial speculation tax to fund free higher education? Could a Bernie-led progressive alliance raise the money for outreach and transportation? It’s doable but only if we plan for it starting now.

Imagine the signal this would send to Bernie’s young supporters. Here would be an opportunity to attack the debt shackles that enslave millions of students and their families. Young people are likely to come running from all directions.

But, wouldn’t this be a white movement?
Pundits like Paul Krugman still claim that Sanders cares only about individual inequality and fails to address inequality between ethnic and racial groups. Krugman asserts that Hillary gets racism and Bernie, with his universal programs, does not, and that’s why Hillary got so many more votes from people of color.

It’s time to put this canard to rest. The Sanders campaign overwhelmingly won the votes of those under-thirty including the majority of black, Latino and Asian young voters. Hillary received strong support from older voters of color. What does this say about race and voting? It says that race doesn’t explain very much. Age, not race, created the major differences in these voting patterns. There is every reason to expect that an ongoing Bernie-led movement would draw young people of all shades and ethnicities.

Can we really build a mass movement for economic and social justice?
Before the Sanders campaign, that question was not even on the table. But who would have predicted that Sanders, an avowed socialist, would nearly bring the Clinton machine to a grinding halt? Who would ever have predicted twenty plus primary victories and the raising of more money than any other candidate? It tells us something important: This is not the time to think small..

Runaway inequality will not fix itself. Reversing it requires a mass movement with staying power to bring the political revolution to fruition.

Bernie has field tested a new social democratic agenda. We now have a mass constituency for a financial transaction tax, free higher education, Medicare for All and an end to a corrupt campaign finance system. Americans are ready to break up the big banks and undermine the power of Wall Street.

But none of this will happen without resources, organization, and structured activities. It requires money, messaging and the ironclad will to build for the long run.

Of all these activities, the most difficult challenge may lie within ourselves. We cannot build if we don’t believe. Occupy Wall Street believed and it changed the dialogue of this country from austerity to inequality. Bernie believed and he put democratic socialism on the American agenda. But Occupy faded because it lacked sustainable organizational structures. And the Bernie moment could be just that if no organization follows.

This is the time.

(Like Runaway Inequality on Facebook.)

Les Leopold, the director of the Labor Institute in New York is working with unions, worker centers and community organization to build a national economics educational campaign. His latest book, Runaway Inequality: An Activist’s Guide to Economic Justice (Oct 2015), is a text for that effort. All proceeds go to support this educational campaign.

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

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

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

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

ADVICE 26: Surviving a Long-Distance Relationship

*****

(Questions have been modified for space and clarity.)

I’m in a relationship that is long-distance for the summer. I feel like you lose some emotional value when you communicate through text, but my boyfriend prefers to write out what he feels as opposed to talking about it. How should we communicate?

He’s a wonderful man, and we love each other and make each other happy. But it frustrates me that he’s nonchalant about how we spend our time together. If I suggest something, I never get a solid, “Yes, this is what I want.” It’s usually, “Sure,” or “I don’t care, whatever you want to do,” or “I don’t know, you decide.”

I’ve expressed that I dislike making the decisions, and that it feels like he does stuff with me regardless of whether he really wants to or not. His response was that while he doesn’t mind the activities we’ve done, they ultimately don’t matter; he simply wants to spend time with me.

Now we are back on break, and I’m the one to suggest when to Skype or talk. Should I address this with him, or am I overreacting?
–Marie; Scarsdale, NY

I’m going to answer your first question second, and your second question first.

No, I don’t think you’re overreacting. As my mother-the-therapist says, there’s no such thing as a wrong feeling. You are frustrated by something your boyfriend does — or doesn’t do — and that needs to be addressed. If it’s not, it’s going to end up lurking beneath the surface, breeding resentment and discontent.

Every relationship has its own equilibrium, and yours appears to be out of whack. You’re the one putting in all the effort, and I’m guessing it feels that if you didn’t, the only thing that would keep you a couple would be your Facebook status.

In a way, your boyfriend reminds me of me. Shortly after my now-wife, Emily, and I started dating, she asked me what I wanted — to eat, or watch on TV, or do on Saturday night, I don’t remember — and I replied with the dreaded, “Whatever you want,” like I was part of an arranged marriage in Zamunda.

Truthfully, I (idiotically) thought this was the ultimate expression of chivalry. I’m here, at your service, sacrificing my own needs to satisfy yours.

Emily did not see it this way. She couldn’t stand that answer, and she wasn’t shy about telling me so. It made her feel the same way it makes you feel — that I wasn’t invested in the relationship, and I was making her bear the full burden of it.

Of course, nothing could’ve been further from the truth. My indifference had nothing to do with Emily. As long as our weekend plans aren’t filled with my kryptonite — like, say, seafood meals and opera tickets — I generally do not care what we do or where we go, partly because I’m super low maintenance, partly because I don’t like the pressure of making the choice. It stresses me out. I take it too personally. I spend the whole time worried that the other person isn’t having a good enough time, as if their enjoyment is my responsibility. Which, when it’s your call, I guess it kind of is.

But hearing Emily’s frustration, I knew I had to change. It didn’t matter if I had to fake it, and it didn’t matter how uncomfortable it made me. I had to figure out a way to start making decisions. So I did.

Your boyfriend can do the same. But since he hasn’t yet changed, you’re well within your rights to bring it up again. Tell him exactly what bothers you, and exactly what you need. Leave no doubt.

I’d also suggest opening up to the idea of changing yourself. At least a little bit. When you’ve mentioned this topic in the past, think about what he said — that all he wants to do is spend time with you. That’s a pretty big deal. It’s a foundational pillar of any successful relationship, and I wouldn’t take that for granted.

So while he needs to adjust his behavior, it might be worth adjusting your expectations. There’s a happy medium somewhere in the middle.

As for how you should communicate when you’re apart, this is yet another dynamic in which your boyfriend and I are alike. While I agree that emotions can get lost in texts/emails, I am not a fan of the phone. I can’t stand small talk, and when it comes to more important discussions, I like having time to think about what I want to say.

Traditional Skype conversations are even more awkward, because it’s just a phone call where the other person can see that you’re sitting in your underwear.

I’m much more comfortable being face to face, enjoying a shared experience, when every pause isn’t filled with stress. Which is why a few years ago when Emily and I spent four months doing long-distance, we’d coordinate Skype dates that coincided with the airings of our favorite shows. We each sat on our respective couches, and she’d watch on her TV while I’d watch on mine.

It was the perfect solution for us, and it could be the perfect solution for the two of you — an activity you can do together that’s already been suggested and scheduled.

Medicare Survey Could Be Contributing To Opioid Epidemic

2016-06-23-1466723097-8462432-HealthcareCostsPhotobyuserImagesMoneyonCreativeCommons.jpg
Photo by Creative Commons user Images Money. “Healthcare Costs.”

The nation’s addiction to opioid drugs claimed greater than 28,000 lives in 2014-nearly four times more than they did in 1999–and more than half involved prescription drugs. The tragic growth in opioid-related deaths is not an aberration; it’s part of a 15-year-long trend the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says is now a “national epidemic.”

Researchers have identified numerous contributing factors related to the opioid crisis, including the changing dynamics of the doctor-patient relationship, the creation of more potent and long-acting drugs, and trends started by influential medical experts and academic societies in the late 1990s suggesting total pain control should be treated as an attainable medical ideal–the so-called “fifth vital sign.”

While these concerns are all worthy of significant attention, a seemingly harmless government survey of patient satisfaction may be one of the most overlooked and important causes behind the current opioid epidemic. The survey, the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS), is administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It was created in 1995 as part of the federal government’s efforts to provide consumers with objective metrics for evaluating health care service providers and to create a way to hold providers accountable for the quality of their diagnoses, treatments, communication, and the comfort provided to patients.

In 2005, the Deficit Reduction Act was passed, requiring HCAHPS scores to be used as a standardized evaluation of health care providers and systems when issuing Medicare reimbursements. Provisions contained within the Affordable Care Act in 2010 further tied reimbursement rates to HCAHPS survey results.

Proponents of these measures state that providing greater transparency for consumers and incentivizing hospitals and other providers to compete with one another simultaneously lowers costs and improves quality and patient satisfaction. But one important and detrimental unintended consequence of HCAHPS and other similar mandates is they encourage physicians and other health care professionals to place a higher value on certain measures of satisfaction–notably pain management–that may put patients at risk.

In addition to assessing the quality of communication from the health care team and the environment of a patient’s room, the HCAHPS survey asks respondents to score a provider’s success at managing pain. There are several questions completely dedicated to pain, including, “How often was your pain well controlled?” and “How often did the hospital staff do everything they could to help you with your pain?”

Controlling a patient’s pain is undoubtedly a crucial part of practicing medicine, but survey questions such as this one have encouraged providers to treat patients with ever-higher dosages of opioids, the consequences of which have proven to be extremely dangerous. Since 1999, the amount of prescription opioids sold in the United States has nearly quadrupled, and opioid-related deaths have risen at a similar rate over the same period. Amongst those addicted to heroin, greater than 70 percent report abusing prescription opioids prior to using heroin.

The phrase “do no harm” may be more complicated than it appears on the surface. Doctors are faced with the challenge of curing patients and treating their pain, but they must also avoid unsafe prescribing practices that could lead to drug tolerance, addiction, or both. The HCAHPS survey inadvertently adds to this dilemma by making patients’ pain management effectively more important than their long-term health.

Providers should always work to find new and effective ways to treat pain, especially now that over one-third of Americans suffer from chronic or acute pain. It is up to the health care community to become responsible stewards for this widespread problem. Providers should emphasize non-opioid classes of pain medications and other holistic strategies for pain management, as well as push for more drug-monitoring programs.

Unfortunately, achieving these goals is made much more difficult as a result of the external pressures placed on providers by government-mandated hospital score ratings such as those produced by HCAHPS, especially when they are used to determine monetary reimbursements.

Your Money Matters: 21 Tips for Achieving Financial Security in the 21st Century

Your Money Matters: 21 Tips for Achieving Financial Security in the 21st Century


Your Money Matters, by prolific financial author and TV commentator Jonathan Pond, proposes a 21-point money-management program for those nearing retirement age as well as those for whom retirement is still a distant consideration. With humor and a clever division of the particulars into tip-packed chapters bearing such titles as “Live Beneath Your Means (Without Depriving Yourself),” “Learn How to Tolerate Your Loved One’s Annoying Financial Habits,” and “Bulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, but Pigs and Lambs Get Slaughtered,” Pond dispenses a wealth of practical data on handling “the most important financial matters that you’ll need to attend to in the 21st century.” A bold claim, but one backed up with a slew of sensible suggestions for increasing your savings and apportioning the resultant nest egg to provide comfortably for your future needs. Along the way, Pond offers opinions and outlines applicable strategies on issues including technology stocks as a viable investment, the need for long-term-care insurance, and the best ways to fund a child’s education or the care for an aging parent. He also includes pointers to pages on his Web site that offer additional information on health-insurance plans, home-equity loans, investment-allocation procedures, and many other supportive issues. –Howard Rothman

Gulay Book 3, A Filipino Vegetarian Recipebook Series

Gulay Book 3, A Filipino Vegetarian Recipebook Series


Gulay is a Filipino vegetarian recipebook series written by the best-selling author Nona Lema. It is so aptly named because ‘gulay’ in the Filipino language means ‘vegetable’. This recipe book series comes from the Philippines, a beautiful country in Southeast Asia with more than 7,000 scenic islands. Gulay features traditional Filipino cuisine cooked the vegetarian way. Recipes are easy to follow and present Nona’s style of cooking that is simple, homey and delicious. The tastes and flavors may be appreciated by everyone. Gulay is just what you will love in a vegetarian cookbook: it transports you into the heart and soul of a culture that is so rich in culinary heritage. The true Filipino fare is actually a unique blend of east and west with very strong Spanish, Mexican, and Chinese influences. Many of the recipes are time-honored cooking traditions the Filipino people have inherited. After 300 years of Spanish colonization, Filipino favorite meat and vegetable stews such as Menudo, Caldereta, Afritada or Mechado have something of the delicious taste of Mediterranean food. This may be seen in the generous use of rich and savory tomato sauce and olive oil. Nona shows how these classic Spanish-inspired dishes can be cooked the healthy meatless way. Two and a half centuries (16th-18th century) of galleon trade between Manila, Philippines and Bahia de Acapulco, Mexico have also brought tremendous influence. Thus, Mexican soups such as Sopa de Albondigas, Sopa de Ajos, Sopa de Picadillos; and main dishes such as Adobo and Adobado, have crept into the Filipino food and stayed on till today. Nona shares the vegetarian versions of these recipes too. The ancient Chinese traders came to the Philippine shore as early as the 11th century, long before the Arabs or the Spaniards came. They introduced their ancient vegetarian food culture that centered on rice, soybeans and Chinese vegetables. Thus, the Filipinos learned how to eat tofu or tauho, taho, tahure and soy sauce; all k

Rory McIlroy Pulls Out Of Olympics Over Zika Fears

By Adrian Warner

LONDON (Reuters) – Northern Ireland’s four-times major winner Rory McIlroy has decided to pull out of the historic golf tournament at the Rio Olympic Games in August because of health fears over the Zika virus.

“After speaking with those closest to me, I’ve come to realize that my health and my family’s health comes before anything else,” the world number four said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Even though the risk of infection from the Zika virus is considered low, it is a risk nonetheless and a risk I am unwilling to take.”

The International Golf Federation (IGF) said it was disappointed with McIlroy’s decision.

The 27-year-old was due to represent Ireland, rather than Britain, at the Games and his withdrawal is the latest blow to golf, which is returning to the Olympics for the first time since 1904.

A number of big names, including Fiji’s Vijay Singh and Charl Schwartzel of South Africa, have also withdrawn because of the virus.

Controversy over the Aug. 5-21 Games has grown as more becomes known about Zika. The mosquito-borne virus can cause crippling birth defects and, in adults, has been linked to the neurological disorder Guillain-Barre.

Last week, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said that the Games did not need to be moved or postponed because there is “a very low risk” that holding the event in Brazil will cause further spread of the virus.

An expert WHO panel on Zika concluded that staging the event during the Brazilian winter means the mosquito population will be smaller and intensified mosquito-control measures in place around venues “should further reduce the risk of transmission”.

MIXED RESPONSE

Medical experts had a mixed response to McIlroy’s decision.

Derek Gatherer, a virus expert at Britain’s Lancaster University, said if the golfer was “contemplating becoming a father within a year or so, then it was a perfectly reasonable precaution to stay away from regions of active Zika transmission”.

But Jonathan Ball, a professor of molecular virology at the University of Nottingham, said: “Obviously I don’t know the reasons for this decision, but it does strike me as being extreme.

“The chances of being infected by the Zika virus is low, especially if you protect yourself from mosquito bites by covering up and using a good insect repellent.”

But there are clearly worries in the golf world. Earlier this month, world number one Jason Day expressed doubts for the first time over whether he would compete and the virus was a hot topic of conversation among golfers at last week’s U.S. Open.

Masters champion Danny Willett, whose wife Nicole gave birth to their first child at the end of March, said he was excited about the Olympic Games but would not to go if his family’s health was at risk.

The list of Rio absentees also includes Australian world number eight Adam Scott and South Africa’s world number 14 Louis Oosthuizen, who both opted out over scheduling conflicts.

FROZEN SPERM

The connection between Zika and microcephaly first came to light last year in Brazil, which has now confirmed more than 1,400 cases of microcephaly that it considers to be related to Zika infections in mothers.

Britain’s Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford has decided to have his sperm frozen before the Games.

His partner Susie Verrill, who will not travel to Rio with their young son, said the couple had taken the precaution because they wanted to have more children.

McIlroy, who is engaged to American Erica Stoll, took a long time to decide who he would represent in Rio and threatened to skip the Olympics as he agonized over his choice between Britain and Ireland before opting for the latter in 2014.

“I trust the Irish people will understand my decision (not to go,” McIlroy added. “I will continue to endeavor to make my fans and fans of golf proud with my play on the course and my actions off it.”

Irish golf team captain Paul McGinley said McIlroy would have been a 100 percent certain pick for the Games but fully understood the reasoning behind the player’s withdrawal.

“It’s not for me to influence his decision, it’s a health decision he has discussed with his family and wife to be,” McGinley told Irish national broadcaster RTE.

“Shane (Lowry) and GMac (Graeme McDowell) are the next two in at the moment.”

In a statement the IGF said: “(We) are disappointed with Rory’s decision but recognize that some players will have to weigh personally a unique set of circumstances as they contemplate their participation in golf’s historic return to the Olympic Games in Rio, with the Zika virus foremost among them.”

ADVICE 25: I’m Dating A Married Man

*****

On the silver anniversary of ADVICE, allow me to say thank you to everyone for reading and to those who have shared their personal lives in this public forum.

After all, this column wouldn’t exist without your questions, so please keep them coming.

To submit a question, fill out this impossibly brief Google form, then come back and read today’s answer…

(Questions have been modified for space and clarity.)

I went on a date with a guy and had a really good time. At the end of the night, he told me he was married. He said he felt bad and wanted to be honest with me. Yes, I was very upset, as I seem to attract married men. We still talk to each other on the phone and we do see each other two to three times a week at our sons’ baseball practices. I have told him several times that we cannot continue talking to each other, and he tells me his relationship with his wife is OK. He continues to contact me and tells me he wants me, but I don’t know if he really likes me. I know he can’t just break it off with his wife overnight — nor would he — but can he really feel something for me?
Jlag0307; Orlando, FL

In one of the first editions of this column, I explained how, in my answers, I wouldn’t be telling people what they should or shouldn’t be doing. Doing so would imply that I know best, and that’s not the case. I’m neither judge nor jury.

Instead, my goal is to paint a 360-degree picture of a situation, to present all viable options and resolutions — and then let the questioner decide on the proper course of action.

Unfortunately, with this question, I’m having trouble adhering to my mission statement.

This situation is bad all the way around. He’s married. Your sons play baseball together. I’m not sure there are two sides to this story.

I don’t mean to sound harsh or insensitive, but I don’t see how this is a relationship you can pursue. I get that it’s difficult to be lonely, and I get that when you find someone you like, you’re willing to do just about anything — and put up with just about anything — to hold onto that connection.

But do you really want to have an affair with the father of your son’s teammate? Before you wade too far into this, think about the potential consequences. Think about if this is what you want for your love story. Think about your son and the humiliation he stands to suffer if things go south. (And in all likelihood, it will go south.) Think about this guy’s wife and what it’d feel like to have someone cheat on you. Do you really want to be the other woman?

Not that it makes a difference, but this guy isn’t even saying he’s looking to leave his wife for you. In fact, he’s telling you the exact opposite. He’s telling you that his marriage is fine and that he’s not going anywhere.

Best-case scenario, he’s someone who should never have gotten married and is searching for his next side piece. Worst-case scenario, he’s a scumbag who takes advantage of unsuspecting women to get off, preying on their vulnerabilities in the bleachers during batting practice. Where’s the upside? Where’s the fairy-tale ending? Where’s the ending that results in anything but disaster?

Could he be feeling something for you? Sure. I guess. But I think the more appropriate question is: What does it matter?

Instead of focusing on him, let’s focus on you. You said you always attract married men — the very definition of the unavailable dream. Why do you think that is? Granted, given your son’s age and extracurricular activities, these are the guys you most frequently come across, so it could be a product of circumstance.

But if I had to bet, I’d say there’s more to it than that. I don’t believe you’re consciously pursuing other people’s husbands, but I do believe they keep showing up on your doorstep for a reason.

While I accept that there’s much in life we can’t control, I do think that the worlds we create for ourselves aren’t created by accident. They are often a reflection of our inner thoughts and beliefs. To a certain extent, our lives play out as a self-fulfilling prophecy.

So I’m wondering what’s making you invest in this toxic relationship. What purpose or void is it filling? Do you not believe you’re worthy of something better? Do you not believe you’re worthy of happiness? Deep down, is there something that’s convinced you that this is the best that you deserve?

I don’t know, and I’m not going to guess. In realigning with my mission statement for this column, I’ll let you be the one to decide.
