Integrator Alert: Demand Time (and Changes) in the FDA’s Move Limiting Access and Increasing Costs of Dietary Supplements

Removal of many dietary supplements from the market. Increased prices for patients and consumers. Limited access to key nutritional tools for practitioners who have used them safely for decades.

Charges like these against a proposal of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have propelled many Paul Revere rides through the alternative and integrative medicine community. One wonders with blasts against the FDA if it is “wolf” that is being cried.

2016-09-24-1474737510-3070699-FDA213X110.gif

Best assessment: not this time. I received an urgent email from long-time Integrator adviser Michael Levin of Health Business Strategies. Levin’s executive roles over the past 4 decades have included positions with pharma companies, medical device firms, as well as supplements firms. He’s a level headed analyst. He pointed to a perspective of the Council for Responsible Nutrition:

“Collectively the draft FDA Guidance can be viewed as a variety of maneuvers by the FDA to re-characterize as many dietary supplements as possible as [New Dietary Ingredients] and then propose a standard of proof for their safety that few manufacturers would be able to meet; one that Congress and the courts clearly did not intend to be applied to dietary supplements.”

Urge the FDA to add a 120 day extension to the comment period

At issue is Docket Number FDA-2011-D-0376: “Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredient Notifications and Related Issues: Guidance for Industry.” The present comment period ends October 11. Levin urges all organizations with a stake in the industry to make their voices heard.

The first step: request a 120 day extension to allow a regulation of this importance to be thoroughly vetted. A draft letter of request is affixed below.


2016-09-24-1474753206-6563239-CRNJointHeader120611400x105.jpg

CRN wasn’t acting alone. It signed a joint statement with the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA), the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA), the Natural Products Association (NPA), and the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA). The group of organizations called for “an overhaul” of the guidance. Best estimates are that compliance will cost the industry $ 2-billion to $ 6-billion a year. These costs that will be passed through to patients and consumers.

Levin is realistic about the challenges the guidance poses for anyone not intimately involved with manufacturing and sourcing processes. He warns that “this highly technical regulatory guidance document is very complex.” One example: if the guidance were adopted, a manufacturing change will trigger new dietary ingredient (NDI) status which, due to routine manufacturing processes, “essentially will put most botanical extracts into NDI territory.” If so, this would add substantially to regulatory burden, and cost.

For these reasons Levin, pictured below, “encourage(s) all practitioner-stakeholders to request a 120 day extension on the comment period (now due on 10/11/16) to allow a careful review.” In his view, “medical doctors, pharmacists, naturopathic doctors and other healthcare practitioners should review this guidance and consider how it may impact their ability to prescribe safe nutritional interventions to help their patients.”

2016-09-24-1474754646-3300244-levinmichael2015.jpg

Levin urges all who are affiliated with professional organizations or institutions linked in any way to supplement use to respond – and also send copies of their letters to US Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Maria Cantwell (D-WA)

If guaranteeing safety is the FDA’s primary concern, attacking the dietary supplement manufacturing is roughly like the IRS seeking to balance the budget by auditing people who make under $ 50,000 a year. With a significant percent of the estimated 251,000 medical deaths a year linked to pharmaceutical use, maybe a better use of the FDA’s team on this project would be to set them to mining in a deeper vein of public harm than to making more expensive the agents people are using instead of pharmaceuticals.

Bottom line: Levin’s call for an extension makes sense. No need for the FDA to rush on this one. Get your request for an extension and comments in!

Sample Letter Requesting a 120 Day Extension

Docket Number FDA-2011-D-0376 – Request for 120 Day Extension for Comment Period (“Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredient Notifications and Related Issues: Guidance for Industry”)

The revised draft guidance for New Dietary Ingredients (NDIs)

Food and Drug Administration
5630 Fishers Lane, Room 1061
Rockville, MD 20852

(Electronic Submission via www.regulations.gov)

Re: Docket Number FDA-2011-D-0376 – Request for 120 Day Extension for Comment Period (“Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredient Notifications and Related Issues: Guidance for Industry”)

This is to respectfully request a 120 Day extension for comment period on this draft guidance.

As written, the guidance raises very serious questions about the future availability of safe dietary supplements recommended by healthcare practitioners to help patients maintain and improve their health.

Physicians, doctors and pharmacists use nutrient repletion and targeted nutritional interventions to improve the health status of the patients we serve. In so doing, our patients can live healthier lives. Evidence also exists that these nutritional interventions may reduce healthcare costs, safely.

Since this guidance is highly technical and appears to have a high likelihood of impacting the practice of nutritional medicine, we simply need more time to study, understand and consider how this guidance might impact our ability to help the patients we serve. The issues of manufacturing changes, ODIs vs NDIs, the position on synthetic botanicals, the cost of redundancy of NDINs and how that might impact innovation, product availability, consumer prices and ingredient availability are some of the issues that need careful exploration. Products on formularies will need to be reviewed to determine how this guidance, if adopted, would impact their availability.

Please extend the comment period by (at least) 120 days (to February 11, 2017) so that we may evaluate the impact this important guidance may have on public health and safety, in general, and the patients we serve, in particular.

Thank you.

Sincerely

Mark Zuckerberg, Priscilla Chan Pledge Billions To Fight All Disease

Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan on Wednesday pledged more than $ 3 billion toward a plan to “cure, prevent or manage all disease within our children’s lifetime.”

Speaking through tears at a San Francisco event to announce the initiative, Chan said she hoped to spare parents the pain she had seen while delivering difficult news as a pediatrician.

“In those moments and in many others we’re at the limit of what we understand about the human body and disease, the science behind medicine, the limit of our ability to alleviate suffering. We want to push back that boundary,” she said.

The event was attended by business and political luminaries including former Microsoft Corp Chairman Bill Gates, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom.

Zuckerberg said science and the medical community have made rapid advancements over the last 50 years, including eradicating smallpox and nearly eliminating polio without the aid of modern technology.

“Today, just four kinds of diseases cause the majority of deaths,” Zuckerberg added in a posting on his Facebook page, citing cancer, heart disease, infectious diseases and neurological diseases. “We can make progress on all of them with the right technology.”

The plan includes creating a bioscience research center, called the Biohub, developing a chip to diagnose diseases, and ways to monitor the bloodstream continuously and map cell types in the body.

Chan and Zuckerberg will donate $ 600 million over the next decade to the Biohub in San Francisco, bringing together Bay-area researchers and scientists from the University of California at San Francisco, the University of California at Berkeley and Stanford University.

Two initial Biohub projects will be a Cell Atlas, a map of cells controlling the body’s major organs, and the Infectious Disease Initiative to develop new tools, tests, vaccines and strategies for fighting diseases such as HIV, Ebola and Zika.

The Biohub will be led by University of California, San Francisco professor Joseph DeRisi and Stanford University professor Stephen Quake, whose work includes small molecule screening and biological measurements.

Dr. Cori Bargmann, a Rockefeller University neuroscientist, will lead all of Chan Zuckerberg’s science initiatives.

Any research, tools and material coming out of Biohub, which will work with a network of 10 to 15 laboratories across the world, will be “available to every scientist, everywhere,” Bargmann said.

“If you take great people and set them loose on important problems in an intelligent way and give them a long time horizon there will be progress.”

5 Body Imbalances You Might Unknowingly Experience

By: Cassie Shortsleeve

Technology has improved our lives in many ways, but not without some consequences, including these five common bodily aches. Here’s how to address the pain without pulling the plug.

There’s no doubt that technology has its perks, from allowing us to work from all corners of the earth to meditating via an app at the touch of a finger. But despite the many advantages technology brings us every single day, it also has a downside–one that can be very painful if ignored. Americans suffer from a number of ailments relating to technology, including a type of back and shoulder pain that is now often referred to as “tech neck” (the repeated act of craning your neck forward and down over a screen, resulting in discomfort that can lead to strain and stiffness). The solution, however, isn’t to disconnect and revert back to powerless Pilgrim living. Instead, heed this advice from Sonima.com‘s pain and anatomy advisor, Pete Egoscue: “If an activity is hurting us, take a look at the body. Pain is the body’s way of trying to tell us something.”

Related: Understanding the Source of Back Pain

What is your body saying? It could be hinting at an imbalance. Maybe you’re not vertically loaded properly–meaning your head, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles aren’t stacking up right. Or perhaps you’re just not bearing weight evenly, says Egoscue, creator of the Egoscue Method for pain-free living.

To find out exactly what your body is telling you, tune in. Once you start paying attention to the subtle signals (usually accompanied by a minor ache), stretch or shift positions to continue enjoying your TV, laptop, smartphone or whatever device is captivating your attention in comfort and with peace of body and mind. Use Egoscue’s guide below to help translate your body’s messages and take appropriate action.

Related: Simple Stretches for Office Workers

When this hurts: BACK, SHOULDERS, HEAD
Your body may be saying…change the way you sit.
Sitting with your shoulders slumped forward, hip flexors shortened, and back rounded can put extra stress on your lower back, which may curve into a ‘C’ shape instead of its natural ‘S’ shape. This pain doesn’t come from only sitting, but also from being misaligned. Your body is compensating, Egoscue says.
Listen and learn: Look down at your feet. You want them hip-width apart facing forward with toes slightly turned in. Your knees will want to come together, but keep them out, he says. Then pull your shoulders down, relax your abs, and roll up and forward with your hips, putting an arch back into your lower back with your pelvis. In this position, he says, you’re vertically loaded. “That’s the way you sit without effort. Your body has just adapted and adjusted to what you have conditioned it to do.” Sit like this and you could notice back and shoulder pain dissipate and even see improvements in issues, like constipation and digestion, he says.

To learn the four other body imbalances that you might unknowingly experience, continue reading the original article on Sonima.com.

Stephen Burlingham Going Beyond Art for Youth with Cancer

Cancer. The word that terrifies us, at any age. But when a young person is struck by it, it seems all the more tragic. To help cope with this harsh reality, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who joined together to form WHO Cares and created The Lounge at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). This is a place that allows teenagers to feel like teenagers and immerse in an atmosphere far unlike a hospital’s (program).

The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Teen and Young Adult (TYA@MSK) Program offers special services to MSK’s teen and young adult population.

The Lounge is a space designed especially for this unique age group that was made possible by a $ 1 million donation from Teen Cancer America. The nonprofit organization, co-founded by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who, partners with hospitals throughout the U.S. to develop specialized facilities for teens and young adults with cancer.

Inspired to go beyond art to create a space for healing, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center turned to a new friend of mine, the extraordinary thinker and doer Stephen Burlingham. Stephen, speaking to our foundation’s young global leaders this summer, explained his recent piece “Whisper” featured in the MSK Lounge for Teens and Young Adults:

I wanted to go beyond art. “Whisper,” for me, is hope for the patients, the family and friends of children living with cancer. My work springs directly from envisioning humanity’s cumulative knowledge and belief encapsulated within an ever-expanding membrane that emanates from the Elements themselves.

My work stands for the universal Membrane and involves my search to find the spiritual, the mindful passage, to allow one to break through our restrains and to see what lies beyond our sensory world. To perceive the Intangible – that which is unable to be touched or grasped, that lacks a physical presence.

Stephen is no stranger when it comes with working with children in needs. The grand-grandson of the renowned designer Louis Comfort Tiffany, Stephen was commissioned for designing the award for the Save the Children’s 75th Anniversary Benefit in 2007. Three visionary leaders were honored at that benefit with Save the Children’s Global Humanitarian Awards — former President George H. W. Bush, former President Bill Clinton, and Melinda Gates.

Unlike any other artist I have met, Stephen is charismatic, spiritual, intelligent – and deeply philosophical. If you didn’t know he was an artist, you might think he is a humanitarian.

One of his works, a permanent stone sculpture entitled “The Crossing,” was erected in the ancient port of Bodrum, Turkey, on the Mediterranean. He told me the piece now bears witness to the eternal laws that are constant over time, language and culture – and the great civilizations which unite humanity.

Another of his work in progress, “The Gateway,” is an installation project that explores the frontier between the tangible and the intangible. “Traversing this universal Membrane is at the core of my work,’ he said, “and the search to find the spiritual, the mindful passage, to allow one to break through our restraints and see what lies beyond our sensory world. To perceive the Intangible.”

Cancer can sometimes feel like that, intangible and out of one’s grasp. The artist speaks of his piece as a way to “look through and beyond.” I took this as a nod to those battling cancer. The Lounge at MSK provides an escape for teenagers who want to be able to live their lives as if they are somewhere else other than a hospital.

“I believe it is up to each patient and family member to choose to see and to take from your piece what you intended to offer them,” Stephen told us.

His work “Whisper,” I believe, is aptly named. Whisper surround hospitals. In Stephen’s whispers, we see something else – a different way to speak up. Among the whispers are the intangible possibility that things can get better, and that people may truly heal.

Meera Gandhi, an activist and CEO of The Giving Back Foundation, is a good friend of us both. Meera helped me gain some insight into Stephen’s life and work:

When I walked into Sloan Kettering and got to the lounge, the yellow art piece “Whisper” by Stephen Burlingham reminded me of the sun. I assumed Stephen was thinking of sunlight and energy to heal when he designed that.

The Lounge has great energy and is so comfortable and has the guitar from The Who hanging on the wall. Stephen shared that he had such joy creating the piece and hoped many teens would be healed of cancer and enjoy great downtime in the relaxed lounge created at MSK.

Meera received our foundation’s Humanitarian of the Year Award in 2015.

Jeremy Hu, gallerist and global adviser to our foundation, agrees:

When you step into The Lounge at Sloan Kettering, the first thing you notice is the vibrancy of Stephen’s work brightening up the walls, signaling a hopeful tomorrow, one that is cancer-free. There is such peace in Burlingham’s pieces. The main element blends seamlessly with the world around it. It lifts you up.

A challenge we have as a foundation and young global leadership program is to try to relate to our readers the breadth and scope of those thought leaders and global citizens whom we meet during the course of our activities. Stephen Burlingham is perhaps the most intellectually engaging and challenging individual we have encountered. One piece on his hospital installation does not begin to unravel his myriad mysteries.

2016-09-18-1474224765-2027162-079F186D707A499980668C21052A029F.jpg

Stephen Burlingham’s piece “Whisper.” Photo: TYA@MSK.

With this in mind, we have determined to create a series about his artistic achievements. Stephen’s world revolves around CoAu – the iconic markers of the paradigm shift of Humanity’s Consciousness, The Gateway, the physical portal of the new consciousness, and 0M1.org, a community forming around this new consciousness.

As we sat around our dining table, we discussed with Stephen his vision. In short, the artist sees three current parts: Joining the idea/vision, a shared curiosity in Humanity’s future and the cosmos; Collaborating in the realization of the Gateway; and Bringing together thought leaders and interested parties (people, universities, think tanks, etc.). Our young team seemed anxiously eager to absorb his ideas.

A creative life force such as Stephen Burlingham is difficult to encapsulate and even harder to pigeonhole. Young patients living with cancer who find themselves in The Lounge at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center don’t care – they simply find enormous comfort in his piece “Whisper.”

Our foundation is actively discussing how best we might engage him in the future. Should he be Artist-in-Residence, Humanitarian of the Year, or simply honorary chair of our Global Advisory Board? Whatever role he may one day assume with us, it is clear that Stephen Burlingham is going to change the world.

The Eight and American Modernisms

The Eight and American Modernisms


Frustrated by the art world’s elitism and the snobbish exclusivity of the academy’s juries, eight American painters united in 1908 to upend the establish norms and stage their own exhibition of modernist art. Led by the charismatic Robert Henri, they came to be known as “The Eight,” and their two-week show at New York’s Macbeth Galleries drew a multitude of visitors, who crowded into the galleries to critique the much-publicized work of these “revolutionary” artists. Their paintings of urban scenes marked a significant departure from the prevailing style-which emphasized physical and natural beauty-and met with critical success.The established chronicle maintains that the Eight were rendered dysfunctional and artistically irrelevant after European modernism arrived in the United States at the 1913 Armory Show. The Eight and American Modernisms revises this account and reevaluates these respected artists’ careers, including their late works. Accompanying a traveling exhibition, this lushly illustrated volume challenges the accepted wisdom about the evolution of the modernist style.In addition to Henri, “The Eight” included William Glackens, George Luks, Everett Shinn, John French Sloan, Arthur B. Davies, Ernest Lawson, and Maurice Prendergast.

American Men Are Pretty Happy With Their Penises

2016-09-16-1474064741-45703-14austinpowers.w710.h473.2x.jpg

By Jesse Singal

For understandable reasons, society’s conversation about body satisfaction tends to focus on women. Women, it can safely be argued, face a lot more social pressure to look good all the time, to feel ashamed of their bodies, and to harp on minor imperfections.

Men aren’t immune from all that, though. And one particularly painful area where it manifests, according to sexual health researchers, is in insecurity about their penises. This can lead to some bad outcomes. As a team led by Thomas Gaither, a urologist at the University of California, San Francisco, point out in a new study in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, “Case reports have shown men undergo risky procedures, such as silicon injections, to lengthen their penis and increase penile girth.” In addition, “Genital piercings, silicone injection, and subcutaneous implant are increasingly common and are associated with numerous complications.”

Gaither and his colleagues wanted to better understand how men view their penises, so they conducted what they say is the first nationally representative survey using a newly developed scale called the Index of Male Genital Image, or IMGI. It consists of 14 statements ranked on a score of 1-7 involving penis length, girth, and so on — a score of 1-3 is coded as “dissatisfied,” while 4-7 is coded as satisfied. They got results from 3,996 men, the sample drawn from 18-to-65-year-olds who weren’t institutionalized.

Comparing those who landed in the “satisfied” (greater than 4.0) versus “unsatisfied” (4.0 or lower) buckets when the scores were averaged, the researchers didn’t find any statistically significant differences in penile satisfaction when it came to age, “race, marital status, education, location, income, or sexual partners.” Penile (dis)satisfaction appears to be pretty much constant across these categories.

Overall:

A total of 3433 (85.9%) reported an average greater than 4 per item on the IMGI and thus were classified as satisfied. Men reported highest satisfaction with the shape of their glans (64%), followed by circumcision status (62%), girth of erect penis (61%), texture of skin (60%), and size of testicles (59%). Men reported dissatisfaction with the size of their flaccid penis (27 %), length of erect penis (19%), girth of erect penis (15%), amount of pubic hair (14%), and amount of semen (12%). Men reported neutrality with the scent of their genitals (44%), genital veins (43%), location of urethra (42%), color of genitals (40%), and amount of pubic hair (36%). Of note, those who were extremely dissatisfied (score of 1 or 2) reported dissatisfaction with their flaccid penis (10.0%), length of erect penis (5.7 %), and girth of erect penis (4.5%).

There were some decent-size differences in terms of the sexual experiences of men who were satisfied versus dissatisfied with their penises. Those who were satisfied were less likely to be sexually active (73.5 percent versus 86.3 percent), and engaged in less daily and weekly sexual activity. There were also slight but statistically significant differences in the percentage of dissatisfied versus satisfied men who reported having had vaginal or receptive oral sex (85.2 percent versus 89.5 percent, and 61 percent versus 66.2 percent). The obvious question here is what’s causing what: To what extent are men who are dissatisfied with their penises less likely to seek out sex as a result of their insecurity? A correlational self-report study can’t answer that, nor can it answer whether these mens’ likes and dislikes were shared by their sexual partners.

Related: Why Is No One Interested in Vagina Size?

It’s interesting that a sizable minority of men reported dissatisfaction with their testicle size or glans shape. On the one hand, in a survey like this you are explicitly asking about certain features, so these responses don’t mean that they are wandering around obsessing over this stuff. (It would be another thing entirely if you asked men to generate an open-ended list of body features they didn’t like and these kept popping up.) But on the other: It’s an interesting comparison to what women go through, because it highlights the fact that at least some of the things both men and women worry about probably aren’t, in fact, of much import to anyone else. If you’re a guy, the odds that a partner is going to care that much about the size of your testicles or the “shape of your glans” — that’s something I can honestly say I had never even thought about before reading this article, and which the researchers note “has little anatomic variability” — are probably pretty low.

More broadly, the main takeaway, as a first-pass attempt at understanding this stuff, is that men mostly feel pretty happy with their penises. Which can maybe explain the epidemic of unsolicited photos.

The 4-Word Phrase I Just Can’t Stand

This article first appeared on QuietRev.com

Forget four-letter words. I can withstand most swears, even inventive ones, with the steely composure of a seasoned dock worker.

It’s a single four-word phrase that, when uttered by a new acquaintance, has been known to evoke a fierce visceral reaction of the negative variety.

“Sorry, I’m a hugger.”

Don’t get me wrong, I love a solid hug from someone I know and trust. If you’re my mom, dad, auntie Judy, or friend Cherie (quality huggers, every one), you’re coming in hot with open arms, and I’m on board. My mom’s hugs crescendo into a tight squeeze that takes my breath away for just a second, her palms like shock paddles sending a warm wave through my ribs. It’s nice.

When faced with a new person, though, I usually think a hug feels…inappropriate. I haven’t agreed to this level of intimacy; I’m not ready to clash collar bones. And yet, here we are.

Historically, I haven’t responded to surprise hugs well. I am all too aware that in a room full of people, sending a would-be hugger into a public retreat of rejection would be Very Awkward. So, I relent. More than once, I’ve leaned in rigidly for a shoulders-only hug, the lower half of my body thrown behind me at such an angle that I may as well be balancing a champagne glass on it and trying to break the Internet.

And, for a long time, my tendency to freeze came with a certain level of guilt. I almost bought into the hype that to be introverted is to be cold. It was only time, and maturity, and a bit (read: a lot) of research about introversion that gracefully delivered me to the conclusion that I’m not an ice queen.

My exploratory process is what I like to call the Falling Down a Rabbit Hole Method. What it lacks in efficiency it more than makes up for in satisfying my Enneagram Type 5 “Investigator” personality. When it came to dissecting my own anti-hug platform, I devoured things like this piece in the Huffington Post, written by a woman who sounded a lot like me—she similarly realized over time that her sometimes-preference to keep a safe distance from people was not a personality flaw. I read a lot of blogs like this. They were unscientific but entirely validating.  

I also found that some cultures are simply less apt at fostering and rewarding introversion and privacy over extroversion. The idea that common demonstrative greetings in the US are merely a cultural tradition wasn’t new to me, but being reminded of it in print was still reassuring. I began to double-down on the belief that I’m not dysfunctional; I would just prefer to say hello with a wai.

I even dove into articles distilling the science behind introverted brains. As I marinated my noggin in these newfound facts, I felt a weight fall off my shoulders, and I developed a new sense of self. I realized that some combination of physiology and psychology has made me selective about social interactions and physical contact—and that’s okay.

Once I became less self-conscious about my aversion to spontaneous hugs and started talking about it to people I knew, a few things happened. First, I found out I wasn’t alone. Some of the friendliest, warmest, Most Likely to Be a Hugger people I knew responded to my revelation that “I’m not really a hugger” with “Oh my God, me neither! It’s so invasive!” Secondly, I found out that even rabid huggers were much more receptive to backing off than I expected. Once I talked about preferring to reserve hugs for people in my inner circle, they typically gave an understanding reply and let me initiate future hugs.

All of this is to say I’m relieved to have found that I was putting too much pressure on myself to conform to a social norm. Most people don’t mind that I greet them with a smile and a handshake or a friendly wave instead of a hug. But more importantly, I now don’t mind being more open and authentic in my own way.

In giving myself permission to hold back from hugging every person I meet, I’ve noticed that I am usually warmer when I first greet or bid farewell to someone. Because I am not tensing up for an impending full-body high five, I feel more at ease. And that changes the temperature of the entire interaction. Of course, sometimes the energy of a new friend feels very welcoming, and I break all these rules and happily advance toward their outreached arms. But it’s important to give myself the go-ahead to stretch out my hand for a shake instead when a hug is not what I am feeling at the moment.

I don’t think we introverts should beat ourselves up about perceiving personal space as sacred space. It doesn’t make us frosty. On the contrary, it makes us more thoughtful about and therefore genuine with our affection. We’re not love-depriving freaks.

Which is what I will remind myself the next time a friend of a friend of a friend starts with “Sorry, I’m a hugger.”

Missouri Lawmakers: You Don’t Need A Permit, Or Training Or Even A Background Check To Carry A Concealed Weapon

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Reuters) – Missouri lawmakers pushed through bills on Wednesday eliminating the need for permits to carry concealed weapons and requiring voters to show a photo identification before casting a ballot, overriding Democratic Governor Jay Nixon’s vetoes of the bills.

Both votes by the Republican-controlled state House and Senate reached the two-thirds majority required to enact legislation over the governor’s veto.

The weapons bill abolished a state law requiring a permit, training and background checks for people who want to carry a concealed weapon in the state.

The House voted 112-41 to override Nixon’s veto and the Senate voted 24-6.

Supporters of the bill said it will make the state safer by allowing more residents to carry firearms in self-defense, while still banning certain criminals and mentally incompetent people from having a gun.

In vetoing the bill in July, Nixon said the measure struck an extreme blow to sensible safeguards against gun violence.

Earlier on Wednesday, the state Senate voted 24-7 and the House 115-41 to override Nixon’s veto of a bill requiring voters to produce a government-issued ID instead of less official identification such as a utility bill or bank check.

The bill would not take effect until 2017, after this year’s presidential election, and only if voters in November pass a state constitutional amendment in support of the new law. That is necessary because the Missouri Supreme Court ruled 10 years ago that such a statute violated the existing state constitution.

Courts in recent months have blocked voter ID laws passed in several states by Republican-led legislatures after civil rights groups argued the measures were discriminatory against poor and minority voters.

In Missouri, voters without a photo ID can still vote if they sign an affidavit swearing that they lack any type of identification. However, election officials can take their picture, and steps must be taken to get a photo ID for later use, with the state covering the cost.

Supporters of the bill said it will help prevent voter fraud.

“Why not have more certainty in the election process?” Republican Representative Justin Alferman, the bill’s main sponsor, said in a statement before the vote.

Opponents had argued that the ID requirement places an undue burden on young, minority and low-income voters who tend to support Democratic candidates.

“Putting additional and unwanted barriers between citizens and their ability to vote is wrong and detrimental to our system of government as a whole,” Nixon said in explaining his veto.

There’s A Scientific Reason That Doing The Deed Makes You Sleepy

Your partner is out like a light after a roll in the hay. Biology, not chemistry, may well be to blame. There are lesser-known “love hormones” ― i.e.,  not estrogen or testosterone ― that cause us to feel sleepy after sex.

We’ve partnered with Sleep Number to get to the bottom of this copulation correlation. Watch the video above, and consider cutting your partner some slack the next time snores cut short your post-coital cuddling.

The Fallen Man (Joe Leaphorn Novels)

The Fallen Man (Joe Leaphorn Novels)


They sat for a while, engulfed by sunlight, cool air and silence. A raven planed down from the rim, circled around a cottonwood, landed on a Russian olive across the canyon floor and perched, waiting for them to die.” Nobody in the world could have written that paragraph but Tony Hillerman. Two old men sit, surrounded by the natural beauty of Canyon de Chelly, talking about death. The fact that one of the men is Joe Leaphorn, (the Legendary Lieutenant, as his younger colleague Jim Chee irreverently but accurately calls him behind his back) means that something serious has happened–a crime in some way connected to the Navajo people. But Leaphorn has retired from the Navajo Tribal Police, and the only person dead so far is a rich Anglo named Hal Breedlove, who fell while trying to climb Ship Rock 11 years before. Chee is busy on another, more prosaic matter, but he can’t resist helping his thorny mentor on Leaphorn’s first case as a private detective. The Fallen Man is brisk, beautiful, funny, and poignant–as good a place as any for first-timers to plunge into Hillerman Country. Then they can catch up on past triumphs with Three Joe Leaphorn Mysteries (The Blessing Way/Dance Hall of the Dead/Listening Woman) and Three Jim Chee Mysteries (People of Darkness/The Dark Wind/The Ghostway).

5 Ways To Raise A Saver, Not A Spender

You may not have much influence over your kids’ athletic interests or their questionable fashion choices, but you just so happen to be in the perfect position to shape their money habits. Sure, kindergartners don’t need to know the ins and outs of loans and interest rates just yet, but at this age is the perfect time to instill a healthy outlook on saving that will last a lifetime.

Instilling strong financial values in your children will not only help them thrive as adults, it’s good for the economy they’ll eventually inherit. In June the Federal Reserve released alarming data that Americans owe more than $ 9.7 billion in revolving credit card debt, pointing to a widespread pattern of overspending;  it’s more important than ever to make sure your family doesn’t fall into the debt trap.

So how can you make sure your child is a saver rather than a spender? In partnership with the BuyPower Card from Capital One, we’re bringing you five smart ways to instill healthy financial habits in your children early on. When they have their own bills to pay, they just might look back and thank you.

Raising kids with smart financial habits will pay off big time over the years. The BuyPower Card from Capital One will pay off big time, too, by rewarding users with Earnings on every purchase. With no limit and no expiration, Earnings are redeemable towards a new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle.

Bill Clinton: Hillary Is Doing Fine, Got Dehydrated After Working Like A Demon

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is “doing fine” after her abrupt departure from a memorial event last weekend, former President Bill Clinton assured journalist Charlie Rose on Monday.

“She’s doing fine, she was even better last night before she went to sleep,” Clinton told Rose during an interview that aired on PBS late Monday. “She had a good night’s sleep, she’s doing fine … She just got dehydrated yesterday.”

The Clinton camp has been scrambling to address the incident at a September 11 memorial ceremony in New York City. Video footage taken at the event appears to show the candidate wobbling on her feat and being helped into a van, her feet dragging. Her doctors later announced she had been diagnosed with pneumonia last week, which Clinton did not publicly disclose. 

Rose pressed her husband’s claims that she was only dehydrated, asking if there were any signs of something more “serious.”

“Well if it is, it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors,” Bill Clinton replied, before noting that “frequently ― well not frequently, rarely ― but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing happened to her when she got severely dehydrated.”

The former president assured Rose that his wife wouldn’t be gone for “weeks” ahead of the campaign trail, adding that she had been working “like a demon” and “had two-and-a-half hard days before the day she got dizzy.”

He noted after Sunday’s incident that he’d be “lucky to hold [his wife] back another day” after she cancelled a campaign trip meant to see her in California this week.

The former secretary of state has already come under fire for keeping her illness private from her media detail and all but her closest staffers.

“I just didn’t think it was going to be that big a deal,” she told CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

Both Clintons pointed to the unequal levels of scrutiny between the two leading candidates, noting Donald Trump had yet to release his tax returns and only provided cursory details about his health.

The Republican candidate promised on Monday to release some of his health records in the coming days.

The Ecological Theater and the Evolutionary Play

The Ecological Theater and the Evolutionary Play


In the three lectures which give their title to this delightful collection of esays, the author of “The Enchanted Voyage” and “The Itinerate Ivory Tower” turns his attention to the influence of the environment on the course of evolution. The first lecture considers the nature of the terrestrial biosphere, both as a unique phenomenon on earth and as one of a class of possible spaces on other bodies; the second examines the nature of the ecological niche; and the third discusses some of the possible environmental interactions of a single species, emphasis being placed on the extremely recondite nature of the selective forces that act on man, as on other animals. Another of the pieces deals with the problem of the relation of natural beauty to works of art, particularly in the context of the similarities and differences apparent when natural history museums and art galleries are compared. The final essay, “The Cream in the Gooseberry Fool,” is an account of the role of an English country clergyman and of the European magpie most in one of the most significant early discoveries of genetics.

NFL To Investigate Cam Newton’s Head Hits During Broncos Game

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton absorbed multiple hits to the head in the season-opening loss at Denver, and Broncos’ players said in the aftermath of Thursday’s game that hitting the reigning MVP was key to the game plan.

Newton’s father, Cecil, said the family was “grossly disturbed” by the repeated shots to his son.

Now the NFL and NFL Players Association are investigating the response by medical personnel during the game.

One specific hit ― helmet-to-helmet contact initiated by Broncos safety Darian Stewart ― prompted the compliance investigation. 

“The NFL is committed to the proper application of the concussion protocol,” the league spokesman said in a statement.

“In order to ensure that it is being uniformly applied across all 32 NFL teams, we have decided to initiate a review of the medical team’s response to the Cam Newton tackle, under the procedure set forth by the collective bargaining agreement,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in a statement.

“Under that procedure, representatives from the league and the players association will review the relevant documents and video and interview the involved parties to ensure that the protocol was applied properly. It is important to note that initiation of this process does not mean that we have seen any evidence that the protocol was applied improperly, but simply reflects our obligation to ensure the health and safety of our players.”

The NFL safety advisory committee panel meets once a month and will discuss at the upcoming meeting whether to consider adopting college targeting penalty rules, which carry automatic ejection and a one-game suspension.

The 7 Hard Truths About Aging That Everyone Should Know

We’ve updated this post that ran a few years ago because, as we all know, every day is a new learning opportunity ― and we feel smarter now. Plus once in awhile, it’s good to share collective wisdom. Here are seven life lessons about aging worth being reminded of:

1. Small aches can sometimes be ignored.
Growing older is not a pain-free process. Knees stiffen up. Feet sprout bunions. And fingers that once flew over the keyboard with the greatest of ease now sometimes cramp up.

Most likely, none of this will kill you, which is why I say: Do your best to just keep moving. One of my biggest worries is that I will step on the medical treadmill and not be able to step off. You know, become one of those people whose life is structured around when they see their doctors.

I fear it’s an easy trap to fall into. This year, I developed plantar fasciitis in my left foot. I consulted a doctor since not being able to walk without pain definitely put a crimp in my life. I had orthotics made (two visits) and had six weeks of physical therapy (12 visits). I also spent 15 minutes a day doing exercises faithfully and yes, the problem did clear up. But think about it: My foot hurt and it took 14 medical appointments to fix it.

What also happened during that period was that my treatments gobbled up so much of my spare time — a limited reservoir to start — that I saw fewer friends, had less fun, and worried more about myself than is probably healthy. The staff and other patients at the PT office became a sort-of surrogate social life. Showered with by their attention and basking in their endless concern about my sore foot, it started to feel good to go there. I don’t want that to happen (although I do miss getting my foot massaged).

2. Your doctor is only as good as his or her front office staff.
When we were kids, the doctor was a solo practitioner and his wife ran the front desk, made the appointments and did his billing. This, thanks to the demolition of the health care delivery system, is no longer the case. Now, doctors work for medical conglomerates, are inaccessible to patients by design and their front office staffs are either untrained in customer service or hired for their ability to not bother the doctor with your pesky communications. You call and are immediately put on hold before you can get your name out. You have to chase down your test results because they don’t reliably call you with them. They regularly lose things or don’t deliver messages. If you need a prescription, it takes a week of calling for the message to get through.

In 2014, I got myself a new doctor. He emails me directly. For real. If I have a question, I shoot him a short email and he responds quickly. Not surprisingly, my medical records are also online and his office staff is pleasant and capable. But his is a concierge practice. That means I pay him $ 250 a year out-of-pocket for getting the kind of care that used to come for free. And we won’t even go to “what about those who can’t afford it?” The gap will be huge, that’s the “what about.”

3. Too many people (still) turn to plastic surgery thinking they’ll be happier.
My favorite Mommy blogger once asked her minions on Facebook this question: “Silicon or saline?” She added “This is for a friend. Please don’t judge.” Sorry, I am judging.

When I last checked, the request had more than 50 comments, most recommending one choice or the other. I wished there was a “none of the above” box to be checked.

I especially hate it when older women get Botox needles stuck in their faces or go under the knife to remove sagging neck skin. We can always tell. The sad part is that some think that looking younger will make them feel happier.

Our beauty comes from within. If it matters to someone that you have crinkles around your eyes, why are they in your life?

4. Retirement looks different now.
Retirement used to be a decision you made and you controlled when it happened. It was something you saved for, made a plan for, and counted on your employer’s help doing via a pension. When it was time to go, the boss ordered your gold watch and you dug out the cruise brochures you’d been collecting. You were done with work.

Then it got complicated. Retirement, if it does exist, doesn’t resemble its old self anymore. One reason is that we are living longer, healthier lives, and are at risk of outliving our savings. We feel younger than our years and so it makes some sense that we want to extend our work career. Throw in a recession that drained savings and put stress on our assets, and you have a bunch of baby boomers who are still going to the office every day.

People about to retire are now asked about their next chapters. No cruise brochures are involved, but starting hobby-based businesses may be.

5. Aging improves your attitude.
When I go on a trip, I used to always pre-pack. I would drag out everything in my closet and try it on, then make neat stacks of yes, no, and maybes. The process took hours and invariably, I always wound up packing just my most comfortable clothes, the ones I wore every day.

Aging’s secret miracle is that your attitude changes. You know intuitively to go straight for the comfortable clothes and can skip the trying on everything else part. You do the same thing with relationships. You weed through them and leave the toxic ones behind. You drive a car that works for you, not the neighbors. You live in a place that impresses no one but yourself. You learn to say no to requests and demands on your time and money. You want to waste neither.

6. Politicians still don’t talk about our issues.

Even in this, the Mother of All Elections, the two main party candidates barely mention the things that matter most to older Americans. The silence is deafening when it comes to discussion about the stability of Social Security, the increasing burden on our health care system, the blatant ageism that exists in the workforce, the nation’s unpreparedness for the aging tsunami that’s headed our way. And family caregivers ― the 34 million men and women who currently perform $ 500 billion of services with little or no support ― what’s the plan to provide them with some relief? Their numbers are continuing to grow each year.

7. Living too long is a real problem.

Some people don’t find the prospect of living to 100+ all that attractive. Basically, we are happy to live as long as possible as long as we are enjoying life. Good health and financial security are key. Without them, what’s the point?

The Idea That Legalizing Pot Will Drive Kids To Get High Just Went Up In Smoke

The abuse of marijuana by American youth has declined in recent years, even as adults’ embrace of the plant has continued to grow, according to a recent federal study.

The findings also suggest that the movement toward legalization and decriminalization of the plant in multiple states hasn’t necessarily increased young people’s access to marijuana. 

The study, released last week by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, examines marijuana use among Americans 12 and older between 2002 and 2014. It concludes that while more adults in general are using marijuana, the percentage of teens using or abusing marijuana, or who are dependent on the drug, has actually decreased.

The 12-year period covered in the study was one in which more than a dozen states rejected prohibition in favor of legalization of marijuana for medical or recreational purposes. Now, about half the states in the U.S. have legalized some form of marijuana, and several more are considering doing so this year.

Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit substance in the United States. In 2013, about 20 million people reported having used the substance in the past month, according to the CDC. In 2015, about 47 percent of U.S. adults admitted to using marijuana during their lifetime.

As use rates are up, one might expect that abuse and dependency rates would follow. Certainly that’s what opponents of marijuana policy reform have warned would happen as the legalization movement forges ahead. But that’s not what the CDC found, especially among young people.

With marijuana use more common among more Americans, it should come as no surprise that the CDC found past-month use was up 35 percent since 2002 among people aged 12 and over. In 2002, that figure was 6.2 percent; in 2014, it had risen to 8.4 percent. But, notably, rates of use were up among all age groups except teens aged 12-17, a group whose usage rates saw no significant increases or decreases in 2014, according to the CDC.

Moreover, daily or almost daily marijuana use was up significantly for most Americans, rising from 2 percent in 2002 to 3.5 percent by 2014. But, again, researchers found the opposite trend among 12- to 17-year-olds. Daily or almost daily marijuana use among teens dropped from 2.4 percent in 2002 to 1.6 percent by 2014.

Overall, the study found that marijuana abuse and dependency had fallen significantly among people who’d used marijuana in the past year. In 2014, about 12 percent of Americans who’d used marijuana in the past year were found to be abusing or dependent on the substance. That’s down almost 30 percent from 2002, when nearly 17 percent of past-year marijuana users were abusing or dependent. Teens between the ages of 12 and 17 and youths 18-25 who’d used marijuana during the past year saw the largest decreases in abuse and dependency, falling 24 percent by 2014.

For all Americans, rates of marijuana dependency and abuse also fell. In 2002, 1.8 percent of Americans aged 12 and older satisfied the clinical criteria for abuse of or dependency on marijuana. By 2014, that number dropped to 1.6 percent. And again, youth aged 12-17 saw the sharpest decline during that period ― from 4.3 percent in 2002 to 2.7 by 2014, a shift of 37 percent. Young adults aged 18-25 also saw a significant decline (18 percent) in abuse/dependency rates during the same period. 

Somewhat oddly, the CDC found that while use and abuse of marijuana among U.S. youth has declined, the perception among youth that there is “great risk” in smoking marijuana has also declined. Further, the perception of there being “no risk” in using marijuana once or twice a week has increased, the CDC found. Yet despite the apparent softening in young people’s attitudes toward marijuana use, the CDC says that since 2002, the perceived availability of marijuana among youth age 12-17 and 18-25 has also decreased nationally. In other words, American youth may believe that marijuana is less harmful than they once did, but they also believe it’s harder to obtain.

The CDC data on decline in teen use of marijuana dovetails with findings from another recent large national survey on U.S. drug use, the Monitoring the Future Survey. That review found that while more adults are smoking pot, teens are not ― though again, teens also report that they don’t see great harm in using marijuana. Those researchers were also perplexed by these results.

So what’s going on here? The CDC isn’t entirely certain. As far as accessibility, it argues that perhaps the various changes in state marijuana laws, and how those changes have affected young people’s access to the plant, may need more time to show up in the data. Regarding abuse and dependence rates dropping, the CDC suggests that changes in state law may be a contributing factor.

“With changes in medical marijuana laws and, in particular, state laws or policies allowing limited access to low percentages of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or cannabidiol (CBD), persons who use marijuana daily for medical reasons might be using strains that pose lower risk for dependence or abuse,” the CDC wrote.

Diane Goldstein, a retired police lieutenant commander who now serves on the board of the drug reform group Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, told The Huffington Post that the study’s findings highlight the ineffectiveness of law enforcement efforts against substance use. They also, she said, highlight the potential good that could come of legal regulation.

It’s not clear whether it’s actually any harder for teens to get marijuana now than it used to be, Goldstein said. But just the fact that teens think it’s more difficult might be evidence that “bringing the illicit market above ground minimizes access to children.”

The CDC data is drawn from almost 900,000 people who responded to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health between 2002 and 2014. Respondents were considered to be abusing marijuana if they experienced “problems at work, home, and school; problems with family or friends; physical danger; and trouble with the law” because of their marijuana use.

They were considered to be dependent on the substance if they experienced “health and emotional problems associated with substance use, unsuccessful attempts to reduce use, tolerance, withdrawal, reducing other activities to use substances, spending a lot of time engaging in activities related to substance use, or using the substance in greater quantities or for a longer time than intended.”

Abuse and dependence was measured in accordance with the standards set by the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

The Emperor of Water Clocks: Poems

The Emperor of Water Clocks: Poems


The wildly enchanting new collection from the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Yusef KomunyakaaIf I am not Ulysses, I am / his dear, ruthless half-brother. So announces Yusef Komunyakaa early in his lush new collection, The Emperor of Water Clocks. But Ulysses (or his half brother) is but one of the beguiling guises Komunyakaa dons over the course of this densely lyrical book. Here his speaker observes a doomed court jester; here he is with Napoleon, as the emperor tells the doctor to cut out his heart / & send it to the empress, Marie-Louise; here he is at the circus, observing as The strong man presses six hundred pounds, / his muscles flexed for the woman / whose T-shirt says, these guns are loaded; and here is just a man, placing a few red anemones / & a sheaf of wheat on Mahmoud Darwish''s grave, reflecting on why I''d rather die a poet / than a warrior.Through these mutations and migrations and permutations and peregrinations there are constants: Komunyakaa''s jazz-inflected rhythms; his effortlessly surreal images; his celebration of natural beauty and of love. There is also his insistent inquiry into the structures and struggles of power: not only of, say, king against jester but of man against his own desire and of the present against the pernicious influence of the past.Another brilliant collection from the man David Wojahn has called one of our most significant and individual voices, The Emperor of Water Clocks delights, challenges, and satisfies.

My Snap Reactions To NBC Candidate Forum

Tonight we saw the NBC pre-debate. The non-debate debate. Officially a “candidate forum,” both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump appeared on the same stage — but not at the same time. The stage was an impressive one, or at least the exterior shots were, since it was held on an aircraft carrier in New York City. This was to highlight the subject of the event: foreign policy and the military.

For some unfathomable reason, Matt Lauer moderated the event. Lauer is not exactly the first person on the NBC bench I would pick to host the kickoff political event of the campaign season’s homestretch, to put it mildly. There are plenty of others with much wider and deeper experience, on both the military and on politics in general. I wasn’t expecting much from Lauer, but in the end he did a better job than other moderators I’ve seen this election cycle, so perhaps I’m being too unfair to him. He was competent, if not exactly noteworthy.

Lauer was constrained by the condensed nature of the event. He only had a single hour to work with (with a commercial break halfway through), so he compensated by trying to rush things along — too much, at times. Lauer’s one of those guys who sometimes confuse “appearing to be a tough journalist” with “just rudely interrupting a candidate’s answer,” to put this another way.

Lauer also didn’t exactly wow me with his chosen followups, although a few of them were well-delivered. But even his “I’m going to talk over your answer” followups usually sounded pre-scripted, like he was going to interrupt no matter what answer he got, whether his followup was actually relevant or not.

I will give NBC kudos for the audience questions, however. There were a lot of them — much more than at a normal debate, even. And they seemed well-balanced: both candidates got questions from supporters, non-supporters, and people who genuinely hadn’t made up their minds. It was a good mix, overall, and most of these questions were a lot better than anything Lauer asked. So the producers who screened and scheduled the audience questions deserve a pat on the back, at the very least. One other technical point — likely because the audience was mostly (if not all) ex-military, they followed instructions and did not applause at all while the candidates were on stage (except at the very end). This gave it a much different feel than some of the debates, which now sound more like pep rallies than actual debates.

Matt Lauer started off each candidate’s segment by attempting to lay down a rule of “don’t beat up your opponent– we’re here tonight to hear what you would do.” He made the point more forcefully to Clinton, whereas it came across as a mere suggestion to Trump. Perhaps because of this, Clinton (by my count) took the opportunity to bash Trump four times during her half-hour, while Trump hit Hillary seven times (which is not even counting the times he hit Obama, but not Hillary).

Both candidates, though, really were chomping at the bit to engage in an actual debate with each other. The first Clinton/Trump debate will doubtlessly draw the biggest television audience in all of American political history, because it may be akin to two armor-clad medieval knights hacking away at each other with broadswords. You could tell that if Lauer hadn’t made the suggestion, both Clinton and Trump would have spent even more time going after each other than they did tonight.

 

Hillary Clinton

But that’s nothing but speculation about future events. Tonight, Hillary Clinton apparently lost the coin toss, and Donald Trump chose to go last, so Clinton started the evening out. She worked the Bin Laden raid decision into her very first answer (no real surprise there), and responded that the most important word to describe the qualities a Commander-in-Chief needs is “steadiness.”

Lauer pivoted right away to the emails, and Clinton took another crack at apologizing for it. She started with: “It was a mistake,” then moved on to: “It was something that should not have been done,” both of which are about as passive as possible. This is a common failing among politicians, even though a simple “I made a mistake” would have been a lot more powerful. Then again, at least Clinton has the ability to admit error — something so far entirely lacking in Trump.

Matt Lauer was pretty annoying during the early parts of Clinton’s time, jumping all over her answers and not giving her time to get even a short answer out. He was much less antsy with Trump, although he did occasionally cut Trump off as well.

The first question from the crowd was also about emails, and Clinton did a pretty good job of explaining how truly classified documents sent electronically are normally on a completely different system and are clearly marked in their headers “classified” or “secret” — which her emails weren’t.

Clinton then got an Iraq War vote question, which she has had more time (and appears to be more comfortable) apologizing for. This time it was: “My vote was my mistake” — not passive at all, taking responsibility much more actively. She made a strong case that people should judge her on the totality of her record, and not just that one vote. This is where she got her first dig in at Trump, pointing out he was actually for the war before, during, and after it began (this is both historical fact and also something that Trump refuses to admit, so it’s a good avenue of attack for her).

Clinton really hit her stride about five or ten minutes in, and did an excellent job of “looking and sounding presidential.” If she’s this good at answering tough questions, perhaps she shouldn’t be so scared of holding press conferences? Just a thought. She also eventually got tired of Matt Lauer stomping all over her answers and cut him off with: “Let me finish, because this is important.” Lauer noticeably calmed down after she did so, which I (for one) was thankful for.

On the Iran agreement, Clinton got off her best line of the night, paraphrasing Ronald Reagan, with: “Distrust, but verify.” On the subject of reforming the V.A., Clinton tried an attack line on Trump that fell kind of flat, charging that he wanted to “privatize the system.” Trump later pushed back on this, during his segment (I should mention that my wife thought that — to be fair — Trump should have had to sit in a soundproof booth while Clinton was speaking, but then she’s a big Hillary supporter).

Clinton was hit from her left on how hawkish she was (and is), which was kind of surprising from such a military crowd. When asked whether (essentially) she could promise that there would be no terrorist attacks on U.S. soil during her term, she wisely didn’t try to overpromise and instead hit the point of not letting people on the terrorist watch list have access to guns.

 

Donald Trump

Trump was prompted by Matt Lauer at the start to just “keep to a minimum” attacks on Clinton, which was a lot softer than the rule Lauer tried to lay down for Clinton. When asked what in his life had possibly prepared him to be Commander-in-Chief, Trump answered with his stock lines about how he was a successful businessman, which apparently prepares you to do anything. He touted his “great judgment” and insisted that he was “totally against the war in Iraq,” although the article he himself cited to prove this was “from 2004″ — years after the war actually began. If he tries this in a debate, I would expect Clinton to point out this fact, and point out what he was actually saying when the war began.

Lauer pressed Trump hard on his temperament problems, and noted that while Trump had issued a very weak blanket statement about “having regrets” about some of his statements during the primary season, America may not be comfortable with the consequences of such rash statements coming from our president. Trump didn’t really have a good answer for that, other than: “I beat 16 people in the Republican primaries,” and: “I behaved myself in Mexico!”

The biggest headline-generating thing Trump said tonight was probably his insistence that he still does “know more about ISIS than the generals.” Once again, Trump is absolutely incapable of ever admitting error in any way, shape, or form — and he wasn’t going to start now. He seemed unclear on the concept of how the military works in relation to the civil government of the United States, almost threatening to cashier all the generals in the Pentagon his first day in office (“We’re going to have other generals”), which must have been at least somewhat alarming to the audience he was speaking to. Generals aren’t like political appointees (such as cabinet members) — new presidents don’t get to clean house over at the Pentagon in the same fashion, but Trump obviously doesn’t seem to understand this.

Trump was asked by a member of the audience about his “secret plan” to defeat ISIS, and he absolutely flailed around trying to come up with an answer, especially when Lauer pointed out he had said just yesterday that his secret plan is to ask the generals to come up with their own plan within 30 days of his taking office. He bizarrely doubled down on his idea that America should have just “taken the sections of Iraq with the oil” or, more simply, “take the oil — to the victor belong the spoils.” This shows such a fundamental misunderstanding of the international rules of modern warfare that, again, it must have worried at least a few of the military professionals in the audience.

Trump’s best moment of the night came in response to a question about undocumented young people who wanted to serve in the U.S. military. Trump said it was a “special circumstance” and backed off his insistence that all undocumented people will have to be deported. This will be news, because it is the first time Trump has clearly stated that at least one group of undocumented immigrants might be allowed to stay in America.

Trump then returned to floundering around in his answers, on his relationship with Vladimir Putin and what he’d do on the subject of vets’ suicide and the V.A. problems (“I love vets — look at my polls!”). This is where he pushed back on Clinton’s assertion that he was going to privatize the V.A., swearing he’d never do that.

Trump’s worst moment was being confronted by an old tweet that seemed to suggest he was against men and women serving together in the military. Lauer really didn’t do a good job of nailing Trump down on the subject, which was kind of a shame because the initial question was so pointed.

 

Conclusion

Neither Clinton nor Trump lost control at any point during the night, or uttered some gaffe that’s going to haunt them for the rest of the campaign season. By that standard, both emerged relatively unscathed.

Clinton is getting a lot better (probably all that debate prep) at sounding a lot less “lawyerly” in her answers, although at times she did resort to very carefully chosen language to explain things in her past. Trump is getting a lot better at sound less like your drunken uncle at Thanksgiving, although at times he did double down on some fairly strange statements he’s made in the past.

Clinton still has problems with charismatic appeal, although the chosen subject matter didn’t really lend itself to warm-and-fuzzy reactions, to be fair. Trump still has problems when pressed on actual details to back up his outrageous claims, but he did sound a lot calmer and less belligerent, even when defending such claims. Maybe his debate prep is also helping him out in this regard. Or perhaps it was again the chosen subject matter, the chosen format (no applause at all), and the chosen audience which helped Trump stay more focused and serious-sounding.

I regularly shy away from proclaiming who “won” and “lost” debates, and since this wasn’t even a true debate, it’s easy to dodge such a subjective read on the evening. I think Clinton supporters will leave thinking she did very well, and Trump supporters will leave with much the same impression of their candidate. As for undecided voters, I have no idea what impressions they’ll take from tonight.

My biggest impression is that conventional wisdom was the big winner tonight — the idea that “the real campaign starts after Labor Day” was certainly proven to be true tonight. Both candidates obviously know they’re in a tough race, and both looked like they seriously want to win in November. Both were cautious about what they said, and much less belligerent than we’ll see in the first real debate. That’s my snap judgment at the moment, and as soon as I post this, I will be interested to see what everyone else in the punditocracy had to say about tonight.

Pink Noise Could Be The Sleep Solution Of Your Dreams

When you’re sound asleep, are you asleep to all sounds? Research suggests that we’re still listening when our bodies are in snooze mode. Ours brain are still awake and processing expected sounds, like the hum of noise machines. But a sudden sound that goes bump in the night? That’s another story.

We partnered with Sleep Number to better understand what our ears are up to when the rest of us is catching Zs. For one thing, we learned that if you’re looking for a sleep aid that’s easy on the ears, white noise may have some new competition. Check out the video above to learn more about the #PowerOfSleep.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated.1820 Excerpt: … This amiable and accomplished woman, whose heart beats in unison with the most generous emotions, has, on all occasions, evinced a superiority of intellect, combined with the most conciliating urbanity. With a poetic genius, chaste and classic, and a taste refined by conversation with the most intelligent persons of both sexes, the pink of nobility is estimable for still greater perfections. It is the pride and pleasure of her heart to fulfil the social duties of daughter, wife, and mother; and happy would it be for many high-bred dames were they to imitate her example, and relinquish their chase of the phantom Pleasure, which they now pursue through the labyrinth of life. The fair subject of this sketch has long been the patroness of genius; and if she has, in some instances, been attracted by the whirlpool of fashionable amusements, she ever preserved the dignity of virtue; and shared the frivolities of others, rather to avoid the imputation of singularity, than from levity of disposition. THE MODERN FINE LADY. It,is only in the serenity of retirement that the amiable and social qualities of woman appear in their genuine lustre. In London the beautiful sex assume an unnatural character. Their passion for admiration, and love of pleasure, become excessive. Not content with natural beauty, the modern fine lady toas recourse to art. The hairdresser supplies her with artificial locks; the corset-maker manufactures a false bosom; and the vender of cosmetics prepares his beautifying wash; the light drapery of fashion is supplied by the mantua-maker and milliner; and the lovely dupe of vanity obscures her charms with artificial decorations. She eyes herself at the mirror; adjusts her dress, limbs, and deportment; and steps into the public walk, or the assembly, …

The 3 Forces: The Perfect Storm Making Medical Errors the 3rd Leading Cause of Death

I previously posted twice on the scientific review paper led by Hopkins’ researcher Martin Makary, MD, that concluded medical errors are the nation’s third leading cause of death.

2016-09-05-1473108332-3523994-Medicaldeaths.jpg

The raw estimate of 251,000 deaths per year is mind-numbing. What is even more disturbing is that the morbidity and mortality seems to be intractable. The number is not heading south, despite the 100,000 Lives Campaign from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. Medicine’s initiative to just-say-no to over-performance of services, Choosing Wisely: Things Providers Should Question has also not turned the tide. The estimate is up from the seminal work in 2000 from Barbara Starfield, MD, MPH that put the medical industry’s death rate at 225,000 per year.

Since the number doesn’t seem to be moving, reason suggests that powerful forces are holding the stasis. What are the barriers, then? My reflections led to a column in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine that is summarized here. Might it be the case that these 3 forces, together, will always create such havoc?


2016-09-05-1473108544-9342736-pillspain.jpg

  1. The production focus of the medical industry Both CFOs of medical delivery organizations and the 80/20 rule of the insurers perversely incentivize doing more – and working faster. It’s why the best players in regular medicine are promoting a revolution toward the Triple Aim and a “value-based” orientation. The present industry errs on the side of doing more in tertiary care while also promoting the fewest minutes possible of primary care practitioner contact. Produce!
  2. The limited state of quality decision-making tools/evidence We wouldn’t have a move for “evidence-based medicine” if medicine was already in that category. The most frank statement on this topic that I have heard recently was from a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center CMO that in regular medicine “only about a quarter of what we do has strong evidence and we only do that about half the time.”
  3. The reductive biomedical mindset In this industry, research, delivery, and payment each dance around a pole planted in our bodies by the dominance of the idea of a single agent, pharmaceutical, quick fix. The industry favors simplistic assessment and reductive prescription. Typical practice favors myopia.

Look at the cumulative effects. An industrial orientation to push to do more, faster, of what is most productive, remunerative (and dangerous). Making matters worse, this perversely-incented situation is guided by grossly incomplete evidence. Compounding the potential for misguided choices is that the evidence that is relied upon – when it exists – is a function of tunnel vision. The evidence base is infused by philosophically reductive preference for biomedical indicators rather than the complexity of the whole human being who walks through the door.

2016-09-06-1473174963-5324502-perfectstorm.jpg

Here is one way to look at the portrait that emerges. Think of a hormonally-hyped, know-it-all and intoxicated adolescent at the wheel of a car: fast-paced activity amid tremendous ambiguity and compromised vision. Is this not a perfect storm for running a car into a telephone pole? Or to guarantee high levels of medical error and medical death?

Integrative health and medicine bring to this deeply and chronically embedded calculus of US medicine the revolutionary requirement to examine the whole person and system. Then, as holistically, the job of the practitioner team is to use all appropriate products, practitioners and practitioners. Placing the whole person at the center of care disrupts the focus on production, and on the biomarkers. The dance with evidence shifts. As such, the integrative health model is a fulcrum to overturn the tables of the industry’s status quo.

The suggestion from this perfect storm is that we will not end medical deaths by focusing on excising errors from the existing way of doing business. It is important that we seek to engage these reductive solutions, through campaigns for hand-washing and other such 100,000 Lives methods. Yet at the same time, we need to acknowledge – as the value-based medicine movement is doing – that our present orientation in the way we do the business of medicine is and always will be a massive, guaranteed, error and death generator.

I believe that this is commonsense. Yet the Catch 22 for medical reform is that commonsense appears not to be an attribute of a reductive mind, but of a whole system one.

The Double Comfort Safari Club

The Double Comfort Safari Club


The delightful new installment in Alexander McCall Smith’s beloved and bestselling series finds Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi travelling to the north of Botswana, to the stunning Okavango Delta, to visit a safari lodge where there have been several unexplained and troubling events — including the demise of one of the guests. When the two ladies of the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency arrive at the Okavango Delta, their eyes are opened, as if for the first time, to the natural beauty and wildlife of their homeland. With teeming wildlife, endless grasslands, and sparkling rivulets of water running in every direction, it is breathtaking. But they can’t help being drawn into a world filled with other wildlife: rival safari operators, discontented guides, grumpy hippopotamuses. On top of that, the date has still not been set for Mma Makutsi and Phuti Radiphuti’s wedding, and it’s safe to say that Mma Makutsi is beginning to grow a bit impatient. And to top it all off, the impossible has happened: one of Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni’s apprentices has gotten married…. Of course none of this defeats the indomitable Precious Ramotswe. Good sense, kindness, and copious quantities of red bush tea carry the day &- as they always do. "From the Hardcover edition."

The Surprising Upside to Negative Thinking

By: Alix Strauss

We’re often told to look on the bright side, but for some of us negative thinking can have positive effects.

It’s an age-old question: Do you see the glass as half-full or half-empty? Often, those who call it half-full are said to be optimists, positive people who smile easily and find the good in most situations. Those who view the glass as half-empty are thought of as pessimists, Negative Nellies who wear a frown on their face. But perhaps that frown doesn’t need fixing. Half-fullers aren’t as happy as we believe, plus they might be a little thirsty.

Related: How Facing My Fear of Failure Changed My Worldview

For decades, we’ve been told the antidote to cynicism is hopeful thinking. Smiling will make you feel better. Thinking confidently makes good things happen. Positive thinking or doing things to make us feel happier may have started with Victorian philosopher William James’ As If theory, that our actions, rather than our thinking, influence how we feel. One of the core ideas is that forcing a smile increases happiness, or at least makes you feel more positive, whereas most people see this in the reverse; I feel happy, so I’ll smile.

Not necessarily.

Positive psychology doesn’t work for everyone, especially those who are a tad pessimistic, say researchers and specialists. In fact, some unusual behavioral tweaks, not to mention creating anxiety-inducing situations, might actually improve your outlook.

Related: Understanding the Science Behind “Happy Crying”

“Telling yourself everything is great while trying to push out unconstructive thoughts or ideas paradoxically makes you think about those negative things even more,” says Julie Norem, Ph.D., a psychologist and professor at Wellesley College, and author of The Positive Power Of Negative Thinking. “It’s called ironic processing and for a lot of us, the more you try not to think about something, the more you do.”

Another misconception: Positive thinking doesn’t allow us to be as prepared or to have a back-up plan, whereas planning for the worse case scenario does.

“Focusing only on the positive side leads to processing that can gloss over important details. If you concentrate only on a specific outcome, say getting hired for a job, you’re not thinking about how to get there,” adds Norem, using examples like researching the company, or thinking about what kinds of questions you might ask, or what your next option should be if you don’t get the job. She also cautions that too much positive thinking can make you feel as though you’re just pretending, and that too, will cause you to fall short.

To prevent that from happening, try these four surprising tips to keep a realistically bright, if not sunny, outlook.

Humans Are Wiping Out Their Closest Relatives

HONOLULU ― If humans continue down our current path, we may soon find ourselves living in a world with no other great apes.

On Sunday, the Eastern gorilla, the largest living primate species, was listed as critically endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s updated Red List of Endangered Species.

The reclassification means that four out of the six non-human great ape species ― the Eastern gorilla, Western gorilla, Bornean orangutan and Sumatran orangutan ― are now listed by IUCN as critically endangered, the closest category to extinction. The other two, the chimpanzee and bonobo, are listed as endangered. 

“Today is kind of a sad day because the IUCN Red List shows we are wiping out some of our closest relatives,” Inger Andersen, IUCN’s director general, said Sunday during a press conference a the organization’s World Conservation Congress in Honolulu.

Over the last 20 years, the Eastern gorilla has seen a “devastating population decline” of more than 70 percent, mainly as the result of illegal hunting, according to the world conservation union. One subspecies, the Grauer’s gorilla, has dropped from 16,900 to 3,800 individuals since 1994, while the other, the mountain gorilla, has a population of around 880.

“We are the only one species of great ape that is not threatened with extinction,” said Carlo Rondinini, a research scientist at Sapienza University of Rome and member of the IUCN red list committee. “This is something we should really reflect about.”

The Eastern gorilla’s new designation comes on the heels of an April survey by the Wildlife Conservation Society that showed an estimated 77 to 93 percent decline in Grauer’s gorilla across its range. 

In a statement Sunday, the survey’s lead author, Andrew Plumptre, a senior conservationist in the WCS Uganda program, applauded IUCN for accepting the new listing recommendation. 

“Critical Endangered status will raise the profile of this gorilla subspecies and bring attention to its plight,” Plumptre said. “It has tended to be the neglected ape in Africa, despite being the largest ape in the world.”

IUCN’s updated list highlights the extinction crisis taking place across the planet. In addition to Eastern gorillas, the plains zebra was uplisted from “least concern” to “near threatened” following a 24 percent population loss over the past 14 years. Three species of African antelope also moved to near threatened.

In Hawaii, a biodiversity hotspot, 38 of 415 assessed endemic plants are listed as extinct, with an additional four existing only in cultivation and listed as extinct in the wild, according to IUCN.

“This update also highlights, for example, the devastating impact of invasive species,” Andersen said Sunday. About 87 percent of Hawaii’s endemic plants are threatened with extinction.

But IUCN’s updated list also offered glimmers of hope. Thanks to conservation efforts by the Chinese government, for example, the giant panda is on the mend. The species’ status was updated Sunday from endangered to vulnerable. 

Additionally, the Tibetan antelope moved from endangered to near threatened.

Andersen said it is vital for the list to drive conservation action ― otherwise species will be lost forever.

“And once they are gone, they really are gone,” she said. 

IUCN’s World Conservation Congress, which is being held in the U.S. for the first time in the organization’s 68-year history, is the world’s largest environment and nature conservation event, often referred to as the Olympics of conservation. The year’s event has drawn more than 9,000 delegates from 190 nations.

During a panel discussion at the conference Saturday, famed British anthropologist Jane Goodall said that when it comes to protecting the planet, apathy is unacceptable. Every single person has a role to play and a choice to make, she said.

“We have been stealing the planet from our children for years,” Goodall said. “We’re still stealing it today.”

Kristen Bell Has The Best Response To ‘Prince’ Dax Shepard’s Sober Anniversary Tweet

Considering Kristen Bell asked Dax Shepard to marry her on Twitter (he said yes), it’s no surprise that she’d respond in full to his loving social media tribute commemorating 12 years of being sober. 

On Thursday, Shepard gave a shoutout to his wife and two young daughters, Lincoln, 3, and Delta, 1, expressing how grateful he feels to have his family after drugs and alcohol sent him down a destructive path earlier in his career. 

“Twelve years ago today I came out of my last toxic, life threatening stupor. I now have a wife & babies & some self-esteem #gratitude #promises,” he wrote. 

A day later, Bell reacted to Shepard’s message on Twitter, doubling down on the adorableness factor and confirming what we’ve known all along: there’s no better couple in Hollywood than these two. 

“Can you [believe] this guy?” she tweeted. “He’s a PRINCE. I’m so lucky to have met him. Bravo, my love. Thank u for working so hard.”

Bell, who started dating Shepard four years after he got clean, has spoken publicly about how her husband’s past addiction has shaped her worldview. 

“I have a particular affinity towards helping people who feel outcast, whether they’ve made mistakes, like having past felony convictions or recovering addicts,” she told E! News in June.

“Seeing the world through his eyes has really opened mine to knowing that it is a disease and nobody is choosing to drink more than others,” she added. “They are doing it because of a variety of reasons and they deserve the attention of a mental health professional, and not the county jail or however else we’re choosing to pretend we’re fixing the problem.”

 And for the umpteenth time, #CoupleGoals.

For Presidential Candidates, 70 is the new 45

by Dr. Mehmet Oz & Dr. Michael Roizen

Controversy blossomed this week surrounding the health of our presidential candidates. That’s because we’re heading into this fall’s presidential election knowing relatively little about the medical history of either major-party candidate, and at 68 and 70, respectively, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump would be among the oldest people ever elected to the office of the president. Ronald Reagan, the oldest so far, was 69 when he was elected to his first term, 73 for his second term, and 77 when he left office. Only 10 of our 43 presidents entered office older than 60.

For many of us, the health of the president is an important issue when casting our ballots. While we don’t and shouldn’t take someone’s age or health into consideration when hiring for a typical job, the role of the president is an extraordinary position. Health is also one of our nation’s most important issues, and a healthy president sets a better example for us all to follow.

Some say that in this election, the health of the candidates is even more important than ever, because of their chronological age. We understand this concern, because aging can definitely affect stamina and mental quickness. On average, we (kidneys, liver, heart, even bone mass, and brain functioning) decline 5 percent every 10 years. So by age 70, your IQ is, on average, 20% lower than at age 30. In addition, we have examined the medical records of all of the presidents since Teddy Roosevelt and found that after someone gets into the Oval Office, they age two years for every one year on the job.

But while the calendar age of Secretary Clinton and Donald Trump would traditionally qualify them as elderly, today we also know that a president’s real age is more important than his/her chronological age. Your real age is determined by your habits and environment. For those who engage in the healthiest habits and are in the healthiest environments, 70 truly is the new 45. As a result of improvements in public health and medicine, all Americans, on average, live much longer than when we elected our first president 227 years ago. Over just the last 100 years, average life expectancy has increased more than 20 years, from around 55 in 1916 to nearly 79 today.

These life expectancy numbers are typically based on averages, but no matter your political preference, everyone can surely agree that our presidential candidates are far from average in many ways. We know that social determinants, such as educational level and income, are among the most important factors for longevity. The more education you have, where you live, and your job correlate with how long you live and how healthy you are. According to research, women and men with 16 or more years of education (Secretary Clinton has 19 and Mr. Trump has 16) are expected to have an increase in life span as much as 8 and 13 years respectively. In addition, those in the highest income brackets (again, this includes both candidates) have been estimated to have a life expectancy about 14.6 years longer than those in the lowest income brackets. These social advantages suggest that both candidates are likely to have a longer life expectancy than most voters – a fact that we hope the winning candidate will address while in office so as to improve the health of everyone in our nation.

Fortunately, healthy habits in our control are even more important for our health than our social situation. Data from the nation’s biggest health studies, including the Nurse’s Health Study, the Health Professional’s Study, and the Medicare Studies suggest that chronic disease is reduced by 80-90% and cognitive function improved in people who engage in the “six healthy habits” and are up-to-date on their immunizations. The more of these healthy habits you have, the younger relative to your calendar age you are. We estimate that someone who has all six of these habits has the cognitive abilities of someone more than ten years younger than their chronological age. These six healthy habits include eating right, managing stress, being socially connected, being physically active, avoiding tobacco and excessive alcohol, and getting enough sleep. While we don’t have perfect data on the candidate’s health and all of their habits, we can make some inferences from what we’ve seen in the media.

Just the act of actively campaigning for the past 16 or so months indicates that the candidates are able to tolerate substantial stress. They are both very social and connected to strong, supportive families and the people they meet every day. Secretary Clinton enjoys exercising regularly and Mr. Trump plays golf. We would bet that they also both get in a lot of steps pounding the pavement and shaking hands. We also know that neither candidate smokes nor drinks much, if any, alcohol. Now, according to reports in the media, when it comes to eating, Secretary Clinton (who tries to eat healthfully) may be doing a better job than Mr. Trump (who often eats fast food), and neither of them is getting much sleep. While we don’t have all of their data, it’s fair to say that they are both mentally sharper than the “average” person with their chronological age, and from a health perspective, likely fit to be president.

Trump’s Doctor Has An Amazing Explanation For That Bizarre Medical Report

Donald Trump’s personal physician told NBC News that he wrote a now-infamous medical report about the candidate in just five minutes.

Dr. Harold Bornstein, a gastroenterologist who has been Trump’s doctor for more than three decades, released a brief note last December declaring the reality TV star would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” The four-paragraph letter, which billed Trump’s health as “astonishingly excellent,” was far less detailed than medical reports traditionally released by presidential candidates. 

In an interview with NBC airing Friday, Bornstein said he spent “five minutes” on the letter while a car sent by Trump waited for him outside his office in Manhattan. 

“I get rushed and I get anxious when I get rushed, so I try to get four or five lines done as fast as possible,” Bornstein explained. “In a rush, I think some of those words didn’t come out exactly the way they were meant.”

The doctor stood by his assessment of the reality TV star’s wellness.

“His health is excellent, particularly his mental health,” he said. 

He also defended the claim that Trump would be the healthiest president in history.

“I like that sentence to be quite honest with you, and all the rest of them are either sick or dead,” he said. 

Watch the interview above.

Bornstein and his bizarre note have come under scrutiny again as Trump and his campaign surrogates have floated conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton’s health. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow pressed Trump campaign manager Kellyane Conway on the issue during an interview Thursday. 

“If he was elected, Donald Trump would be the oldest person to ever be sworn in as president,” Maddow said. “Whether or not he’s going to try to make Hillary Clinton’s health the issue, doesn’t he owe it to the American people to release an actual medical report, a more credible, more complete statement?”

Conway said “perhaps” he should release more information.

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.

Real Food/Fake Food

Real Food/Fake Food


Olmsted makes you insanely hungry and steaming mad-a must-read for anyone who cares deeply about the safety of our food and the welfare of our planet.” -Steven Raichlen, author of the Barbecue! Bible series”The world is full of delicious, lovingly crafted foods that embody the terrain, weather, and culture of their origins. Unfortunately, it’s also full of brazen impostors. In this entertaining and important book, Olmsted helps us fall in love with the real stuff and steer clear of the fraudsters.” -Kirk Kardashian, author of Milk Money: Cash, Cows, and the Death of the American Dairy Farm You’ve seen the headlines: Parmesan cheese made from wood pulp. Lobster rolls containing no lobster at all. Extra-virgin olive oil that isn’t. So many fake foods are in our supermarkets, our restaurants, and our kitchen cabinets that it’s hard to know what we’re eating anymore. In Real Food / Fake Food, award-winning journalist Larry Olmsted convinces us why real food matters and empowers consumers to make smarter choices. Olmsted brings readers into the unregulated food industry, revealing the shocking deception that extends from high-end foods like olive oil, wine, and Kobe beef to everyday staples such as coffee, honey, juice, and cheese. It’s a massive bait and switch in which counterfeiting is rampant and in which the consumer ultimately pays the price. But Olmsted does more than show us what foods to avoid. A bona fide gourmand, he travels to the sources of the real stuff to help us recognize what to look for, eat, and savor: genuine Parmigiano-Reggiano from Italy, fresh-caught grouper from Florida, authentic port from Portugal. Real foods that are grown, raised, produced, and prepared with care by masters of their craft. Part cautionary tale, part culinary crusade, Real Food / Fake Food is addictively readable, mouthwateringly enjoyable, and utterly relevant.
