Whitney Port Sings Along to The Hills Theme Song — Without Missing a Word!

Whitney Port can still feel the rain on her skin!

Even though it’s been eight years since the series finale of The Hills, Port, 33, still knows all the words to the reality show’s theme song.

On Friday, while taking a drive with her 11-month-old son, Sonny SanfordThe Hills alum shared a video on her Instagram Story of herself singing along while Natasha Bedingfield’s 2004 song “Unwritten” played in the background.

After belting out the chorus behind the wheel, she addressed her son, who was not visible in the video.

“Sonny, this is mama’s song,” she cheerfully told her son.

Before the pair set out for their trip, Port revealed on Instagram that she was taking her son on a shopping excursion at Saks Fifth Avenue.

“Taking Sonny to @sakson Day 3 of #whitiwore. Wake up, Sonny!!” she wrote on Instagram alongside an image of her outfit of the day: a snakeskin-print dress, which she paired with black shoes and a matching black belt.

Earlier this year, Port opened up to PEOPLE about how she and husband Tim Rosenman are adjusting to life as parents — including one of her biggest (and wettest) parenting fails.

“I would say that last parenting ‘fail’ I had was when I didn’t get the diaper on fast enough and he peed in my face,” said Port.

Port also shared that while she was playing peekaboo with her son, he made her “laugh so hard I cried.”

“He was so scared and had such an insane reaction — scared in a funny way. He jumped and then ,” she explained. “Peekaboo right now is the craziest thing.”

Kanye West’s Collaborator Takes the Blame for Sample Used Without Permission: ‘I’m Sorry’

Kanye West just dropped his highly anticipated album Ye on Friday, and the singer is facing even more controversy over his first track, “I Thought About Killing You.”

Berlin-based record label PAN accused West, 40, of using an unauthorized sample of Kareem Lotfy’s Fr3esh album from the mono no aware compilation.

“It’s sadly another case of an artist who capitalizes on culture without any original ideas and because culture trickles up, this means we are all basically working for him,” the label’s founder Bill Kouligas told Pitchfork.

Adding that his company may pursue legal action, “Everything leads to him, he’s the ultimate narcissist,” says Kouligas.

While a rep for West had no comment on the report, his frequent collaborator Francis and the Lights, who co-produced the song alongside Benny Blanco, has already taken the blame.

Rand Paul’s Wife on His ‘Terrifying’ Recovery After Attack: He Hasn’t Taken a Single Breath ‘Without Pain’

Sen. Rand Paul’s wife is opening up about his “terrifying” recovery process after he was allegedly assaulted by a neighbor earlier this month.

In an emotional op-ed for CNN, Kelley Paul reveals that her husband is still in a constant state of suffering, explaining that the Kentucky Republican “has not taken a single without pain” since the Nov. 3 attack.

“He has not had a single night’s sleep uninterrupted by long periods of difficult breathing or excruciating coughing,” she wrote. “As his wife, I have been distraught over seeing him suffer like this. There have been several nights where I had my hand on my phone ready to call 911 when his breathing became so labored it was terrifying.”

Kelley said the press coverage of the incident has only added insult to injury, criticizing news outlets for “victimizing Rand a second time” and “delighting in hateful headlines like ‘Not A Perfect Neighbor,’ and concocting theories about an ‘ongoing dispute,’ based on nothing more than speculation from an attention-seeking person with no knowledge of anything to do with us.”

Kelley wrote that neither she nor her husband has spoken to the alleged attacker, neighbor Rene Albert Boucher, in 10 years and that there was not a long-running dispute between the two men, as Boucher’s lawyer claimed. 

Boucher pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor assault in the incident, CNN and other outlets reported.

His attorney, Matt Baker, told local station WBKO, “It’s just a disagreement — a long-standing disagreement between two neighbors.”

WATCH: Barron Trump, in Spotlight for White House Holidays, Has Fierce Defenders in Clinton, Bush Kids

Baker also told WKU Public Radio, “The unfortunate occurrence of November 3rd has absolutely nothing to do with either’s politics or political agendas. It was a very regrettable dispute between two neighbors over a matter that most people would regard as trivial. We sincerely hope that Senator Paul is doing well and that these two gentlemen can get back to being neighbors as quickly as possible.”

Baker added in a statement to CNN earlier this month that “we should believe” Boucher and Paul’s mutual neighbor, Jim Skaggs, who told the outlet that there has been a “long-running disagreement” between the two men over property maintenance.

But Kelley writes that “the only ‘dispute’ existed solely in the attacker’s troubled mind, until, on a beautiful autumn day, he ran down the hill on our property and slammed his body into Rand’s lower back as he stood facing away, wearing noise canceling headphones to protect his ears from the lawnmower.”

After the alleged assault, Paul suffered five rib fractures, including three displaced fractures and bruised lungs. His wife says that after he returned to Washington, D.C. last week, determined to “do his job,” Paul was diagnosed with pneumonia in his damaged lung.

“This Thanksgiving weekend, instead of playing golf with his sons or enjoying our annual touch football game with family and neighbors, Rand will be in pain,” she wrote. “But we will still be grateful for the love of our large and supportive family, and for the encouragement and prayers of hundreds of kind and thoughtful people during these last weeks.”

Many of those who cannot take a day off of work are wearing red or patronizing only female-owned establishments.

Epic Moments In Fashion That Wouldn’t Have Existed Without The LGBTQ Community

Plainly stated, fashion as we know it today would not exist if not for the creativity and influence of people in the LGBTQ community. LGBTQ stylists, designers and fashion personalities alike make up the heart of the industry. 

As a result, many of our very favorite moments in pop culture, film and even political happenings would simply have not been possible without the LGBTQ community’s contributions. 

The history of fashion and its intersection with queerness goes far beyond this small sampling. The 25 moments we’re highlighting below, while iconic, just barely skim the surface.

Could you imagine living in a world without Madonna’s cone bra, debuted in 1990 and designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier? Or what about any single thing Sarah Jessica Parker wore as Carrie Bradshaw on “Sex and the City?”

Behold, in honor of Pride Month, 25 of the many epic moments in fashion history for which we should thank the LGBTQ community.

Enzymes May Be Able To Give You A Real Tan Without The Damage

Sun worshippers might someday be able to get a tan without exposing their skin to the harmful ultraviolet radiation that’s responsible for skin cancers, a new study suggests.

The goal of the research is to prevent skin cancers by darkening the pigmentation of people’s skin, senior author Dr. David Fisher told Reuters Health.

“Very light skin and a very poor ability to tan correlates with a very high probability of developing cancer,” said Fisher, who is chief of the dermatology service at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Darker skin may block harmful UV radiation, Fisher said, so it’s possible that darkening the skin’s pigmentation might help neutralize the risk associated with genes for light-colored hair and fair skin.

A decade ago, Fisher’s team found a way to change the pigmentation of skin cells in mice from very fair to dark, which protected their cells from the type of UV damage that can lead to skin cancer. Unfortunately, the topical agent that worked to darken the skin of mice didn’t work as effectively on thicker human skin. 

Since then, the researchers have been trying to find alternative ways to achieve the same goal in humans, Fisher said.

Eventually, they identified enzymes ― called small-molecule salt-inducible kinases ― that help control pigmentation in a cell.

When the researchers applied the enzymes onto mice and samples of human skin in a lab, both the mice and the human skin turned increasingly dark as more enzymes were applied, according to the study published in Cell Reports.

Fisher said the darkened skin responded like a normal tan, but without the damage seen with UV radiation.

The darker pigment ― the melanin ― “won’t go away until the cells mature, die and fall of the surface,” he said.

The enzyme solution used in the study is far from being available at local pharmacies, however.

“As in anything that’s a new strategy, this needs toxicity testing to know it’s safe before going into man and all sorts of clinical trials,” said Fisher.

A drug that darkens pigmentation may have uses beyond the theoretical protection against skin cancer, including to cosmetically darken skin among people with other medical conditions, said Dr. Jonathan Zippin of Weill Cornell Medicine’s Department of Dermatology in New York.

“There is a clear cosmetic application,” he told Reuters Health. “If you want to prove that you’ve improved skin cancer risk, you’ve got to do that study and that’s going to require time,” he noted.

“There is a limited number of drugs available that can effectively elevate pigmentation in a safe way,” said Zippin, who was not involved with the new research. “So this is exciting in the sense that it could be one such drug to fill that niche.”

Fisher is focused on developing a product that will protect against skin cancers.

“There is such a prevention opportunity that is missed right now,” he said.

For Stevens to become the Beast, he had to wear a 40-pound muscle suit and do motion capture. In an interview with People, the actor talked about the difficulties of the suit, which included waltzing on stilts and having trouble fitting into the bathroom stall. 

He neglected to say he looked like a mix of gray mashed potatoes and the Michelin Man. 

According to Stevens, difficulties for his co-star Emma Watson included worrying that he’d step on her feet in steel stilts. It was also probably difficult not to laugh in his face.

 Despite that, somehow the movie took this …

And made it this …

This Woman Wore Her Engagement Ring For A Year Without Even Knowing It

One unsuspecting woman was wearing her engagement ring for over a year without even realizing it. 

How exactly is this possible, you might ask? It all started when an Australian man named Terry made his girlfriend Anna a necklace out of Huon pine ― a wood native to Tasmania  ― for their one-year anniversary in 2015. Unbeknownst to Anna, Terry had hidden an engagement ring inside the necklace.

For a year and a half, Anna wore that necklace almost every day without knowing there was anything, let alone an engagement ring, inside.  

During a trip to Smoo Cave in northern Scotland in November 2016, Terry was finally ready to pop the question and to reveal the big surprise. 

“I picked Smoo Cave because it was a place we had talked about visiting since we first met, and ‘smoo’ comes from an old Norse word for ‘hiding place,’ so I think I get extra points for that one,” Terry told HuffPost. 

Just before the proposal, Terry asked Anna for the necklace, telling her he was going to take a nice photo of it propped up on some rocks. 

That’s when he grabbed a knife to secretly break a seal he had placed on the piece of jewelry. 

He told Anna, “Oh, I forgot to give you your necklace back,” pulled the jewelry from his pocket, got down on one knee and cracked it open while asking her to marry him.

“She stood there with this completely confused and dumbfounded look on her face, and when she finally worked out what had just happened, she yelled, ‘Yes!’ and pounced on me,” he told HuffPost. 

“It actually took her a couple of moments to understand that the ring had been in the necklace the entire time since I gave it to her,” he continued. “She flipped out ― ‘Wait, it’s been in there the entire time?! I could have lost it, you f**king idiot!’, which was a hilarious mix of happy and angry.”

The couple is saving up to buy a home and hopes that they will someday be able to host their wedding at the house. 

“We are hoping to buy a house with land so we can have the wedding at home with our friends and family, in a very relaxed fashion that we think matches us ― rather than having a gigantic, glamorous wedding, which isn’t like us at all,” Terry said. 

We can’t wait to see what fun wedding surprises Terry has up his sleeve.

White House Correspondents Dinner Goes On, Without Donald Trump

An annual Washington tradition best known for celebrity guests and a comedy routine by the president continues on Saturday with neither.  

The White House Correspondents Association dinner, at the Washington Hilton in D.C.’s Dupont Circle neighborhood, will be held without President Donald Trump and the high-profile guests typically invited by news outlets that organize the event. Instead, this year’s dinner will include guests like the high-school journalists who brought down their principal with a story on her faked credentials. (The kids will be guests of HuffPost.)

Trump announced he was skipping the dinner in February, making him the first president in more than three decades to break the tradition. At the time, Trump and his administration were fiercely attacking reporters and media outlets. He described the media as “the enemy of the American people,” threatened to change libel laws so he can more easily sue news organizations, attacked the media for using unnamed sources in stories critical of his administration, and blocked certain outlets, including HuffPost, from attendance at press briefings.

Saturday’s correspondents dinner will still feature a roast of the president, delivered by “The Daily Show” correspondent Hasan Minhaj, a Muslim comedian who has condemned Trump’s anti-Muslim actions. It’s a safe bet that there will be plenty of jabs at the president’s expense.  

Still, this year’s correspondents dinner will be a diminished affair compared with past years. Much of the star power typically drawn to the dinner will instead be concentrated at an alternative event thrown by “Full Frontal” host Samantha Bee. The New Yorker and Vanity Fair have canceled the extravagant after-parties they typically hold. And Trump is holding a rally at the same time as the dinner, presumably to divert attention from the Washington event.

Jeff Mason, president of the White House Correspondents Association, said this year’s dinner would focus on its original purpose: funding scholarships for aspiring journalists and recognizing the work of reporters covering the presidency. 

“We look forward to shining a spotlight at the dinner on some of the best political journalism of the past year and recognizing the promising students who represent the next generation of our profession,” Mason said in a statement.

Given Trump’s anti-media attacks, the dinner also is likely to focus on freedom of the press and the media’s watchdog role in government.

Do-Able Diet:I Lost Half My Body Weight Without Giving Up The Foods I Love. Now You Can Too!

Do-Able Diet:I Lost Half My Body Weight Without Giving Up The Foods I Love. Now You Can Too!


Tells how an ordinary young Australian woman single-handedly transformed herself from a ‘fat chick’ into a ‘hot chick’ by developing an astonishingly simple weight-loss plan. A couple of years ago I weighed 97 kilos and was a size 22. I have now lost 45kg and eight dress sizes while still eating at least six times a day, having dessert every night and only doing moderate exercise a few times a week. I am not a doctor or a dietician, just a young Mum who didn’t have the time, money or patience to try yet another fad diet that didn’t work. Instead, I found a way to lose weight without giving up sweets, attending embarrassing public weigh-ins or joining an expensive gym. I continued to do all my food shopping at the supermarket and I didn’t waste precious money on unidentifiable meal replacements or dangerous drugs. This book does not contain a new miracle cure, just loads of practical, easy to follow advice. This is really the most Do-able Diet you’ll ever find.

Anxiety: Can You Live Without It In 2017?

“Do not lose yourself in the past. Do not lose yourself in the future. Do not get caught in your anger, worries, or fears…Anxiety, the illness of our time, comes primarily from our inability to dwell in the present moment. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything–anger, anxiety, or possessions–we cannot be free.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

It is 3:15 PM on December 31st. I intentionally waited until the last few hours of 2016 to write this note because I wanted to squeeze every last drop from the year before commenting on what it has meant to me. Because I am a longtime believer in the power of self-inquiry and mindfulness, I am taking time to revisit the highs and lows (and there are many of each) that were part of my journey through 2016 and to the cusp of 2017…and I invite you to do the same.

For me personally, 2016 has been the worst year and, simultaneously, the best year of my life–which is why I may have seemed to be missing in action with my “weekly” eMessages during the past twelve months. The how’s and why’s of this are not important because it is likely many people reading this can say the same. My awareness is that there is a razor fine-line between what was, what is, and what shall be. Straddling that invisible boundary with uncertainty leads to anxiety which, as Thich Nhat Hanh points out, is the illness of our time. Through the practice of mindfulness we can breathe deeply and intuit that otherwise indiscernible line called the present moment and anchor ourselves there. In the process, we are setting ourselves free to embrace the goodness each future moment offers us as it comes.

2016-12-31-1483222202-7689364-2017.jpg

With mindfulness, the quintessential question each moment invites you to explore is, what might you be clinging to now that is causing anxiety and–what’s more important–is it serving any useful purpose. If the answer is no, are you willing let “it” go? Irrespective of whether its tentacles are wrapped around the past, or the future, anxiety has no business or power in the present moment when you stay grounded there. Do not lose yourself in the past. Do not lose yourself in the future: The present moment is your only point of power, so make a commitment to “find yourself” hanging out there more of the time. How? By letting go of what no longer serves you and embracing what does; in the process you will witness anxiety disappear into the nothingness from which it came–a fearful mind. Then be prepared to ascend to new heights in 2017, one day, one moment, one sacred and precious breath at a time.

Happy Now Year!

Peace, Dennis

Without Further Ado, Here Is Every Cover Of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ We Could Find

We know there is a secret chord that every musician in the whole wide world has played, and it pleases us all. Or rather, chords. More specifically, the chords that make up “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen, whose death was announced via Facebook on Thursday. And actually, some renditions might please us more than others. 

More famous than the original is Jeff Buckley’s version, an emotional take whose quiet intensity most artists find themselves trying to imitate. It’s perhaps most closely followed by Rufus Wainwright’s version, which appeared on the soundtrack to millennial favorite “Shrek.” K.D. Lang has covered the song, as has Neil Diamond, Bon Jovi, several contenders on “The Voice,” more than a few (very impressive) a cappella groups and dozens of other instrumentalists and vocalists alike.

Below we’ve compiled a Spotify playlist with 141 versions of the song after Cohen’s original. That’s 10-and-a-half hours of “Hallelujah,” plus a few YouTube videos for good measure. Enjoy.

I Was There: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Election Night Party — Without the Guest of Honor

They arrived wearing their red, white, and Hillary Clinton finest: sweaters with their candidate’s name woven into the nap, custom painted “Nasty Woman” leather jackets, yards of sequins that reflected the excitement felt all around. The supporters who came to New York City’s Javits Convention Center were ready for a party on Election Night.

Unfortunately, the party never happened.

Actress Debra Messing had on comfy-looking bright red sneakers — she was in it for the long haul. Scores of young women wore “staff” badges — though many of them were volunteers. Two little girls showed up with their family wearing “Madam President” buttons and with their faces painted red and blue; bravehearts indeed.

With some early Tuesday predictors estimating that Clinton had upwards of an 85 percent chance to become the first female U.S. President, it seemed likely there was an equal chance of showers from the confetti cannons stationed on either side of the main floor where the Democratic candidate was expected to speak.

Two days earlier, the venue was mostly quiet, save for some campaign staff handing out press credentials. I showed up late in the afternoon on Sunday, and with the shift to daylight savings time (really? An extra hour of this election?) the windowed convention center near the Hudson River was aglow in the sunset. It was impossible to miss the symbolism: That was some big glass ceiling.

By 6 p.m. on Tuesday, blocks of 11th Avenue were cordoned off by police and filled with Clinton fans who would be treated to a show by Katy Perry, and speeches from local Democrats. In between acts, election returns came up on the big screens stationed around the space and outdoors. Connecticut goes for Clinton: Cheers! New Mexico: Cheers!

Having taken to heart the “Don’t boo—vote!” directive from President Obama, there was little in the way of jeering when Donald Trump voters turned a state red; instead it just got quiet. Kentucky. Georgia. Indiana. No big deal, people reminded one another, those are usually Republican states. Here, let’s take a selfie with Mayor Bill DeBlasio in the background.

Then Virginia, Tim Kaine’s home state, was teetering. (It eventually went blue.) And Florida. And people began having the Florida flashbacks: “It reminds me a lot of Gore-Bush,” said a woman from the Virgin Islands. “We all went to bed that night thinking Gore had won and woke up and Bush had won. So I’m not giving up hope.”

Her friend, wearing a ‘HillYeah’ button on her hat, added, “I think we thought she would have been ahead more at this stage.”


Small groups gathered around the TV monitors in the basement cafeteria. There was a run on pasta and beer.

“It is definitely nerve-wracking,” said a supporter from Connecticut, smiling insistently. Moments before she had told me, “The energy is fantastic,” and she seemed to be sticking to that. Her friend wasn’t so sure. Maybe they should think about driving home? “I want to see history being made and I’m afraid if I leave I’ll regret it if she does win.”

The night wore on. The cafeteria closed. The beer bottles emptied, the starchy comfort food consumed. The TV monitors continued to bleed red. The young women volunteers were rotating in and out of the ladies’ room, eyes red.

The faithful were trying to hold on to hope, but it wasn’t easy.

A New York supporter whose daughter was about the age of these campaign workers told me, “My heart is hanging on every word here. I’m on the verge of tears. I’m so upset right now. I have a 20-year-old daughter in college, and I just feel if he gets to be president … It’s all over. It’s just … nothing.”

A rumor circulated after midnight that the venue had to be cleared out by 2 a.m. Suddenly it was after 1 a.m., and the dais remained empty. The crowds were still, well, crowded. And they did what crowds do: They huddled, goofed for the cameras when turned on them, and sang along to the piped-in music.

By 1:30 a.m. or so, two things happened: we began to hear that Secretary Clinton would not speak tonight, but instead would send campaign chairman John Podesta, as at least three states were still too close to call.

The PA system blared what is usually a party-pleaser: Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” On the screen the crowd saw itself reflected, and gamely joined in with Steve Perry’s vocals: “Don’t stop believing, hold on to that fe-eee-lin’. ” Was anyone else thinking about what these words mean? Did anyone else feel that this was as final as the Sopranos finale that had used the song before cutting to black?

Though the big screens, still on closed circuit, didn’t announce it in the moment, Pennsylvania was called for Trump, effectively giving him the win. Podesta took the stage, told us all to go home and get some sleep. There would be more in the morning.

And there was: About eight hours later, the candidate finally spoke. But the party was over, and her supporters — many more than had been at that windowed convention center — gathered in our shared virtual space to hear the first woman to win the popular vote for United States president offer her apologies for not winning the election. “This is not the outcome we wanted or we worked so hard for,” said Sec. Clinton. “And I’m sorry we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country.”

No, this was not the outcome that those who had traveled to the Javits Center had wanted.

I listened to the worries, and tears, and frustrations of supporters as they filed out into the New York City night, past a street vendor with a keen market sense selling Hillary T-shirts marked down to $ 5. I didn’t hear anyone asking for their candidate’s apology. There were practical matters to attend to: Would Uber be able to get through the police barricades? Is the subway okay to take at 3 a.m.?

I took a last look at the building, still lit, and that glass ceiling still frustratingly untouched.

Terrifying Musical Number Imagines A World Without Internet

A Year Without Underwear


Having been promoted to a top management position in the space R & D field, Colonel Ralph Monfort finds himself too far from the action and decides to give himself a fiftieth birthday gift-his own retirement from the U.S. Air Force. It didn’t take him long to find his dream vacation-a yearlong, forty-one country, fully supported bicycle odyssey. After a short description on how one prepares for such a trip, Monfort plunges into this unique travel experience with energy, wit, and the excitement of discovery. Written as a series of e-mailed reports from the field, you will soon find yourself vicariously sharing adventures in Africa, Europe, and Southeast Asia as if with an old friend. Whether it’s the pizza in France, the ruins of Rome, birding in South Africa, or the toilets of China, the gamut is covered and nothing is sacred in this global romp. Sprinkled with historical tidbits, odd anecdotes, and wry observation, A Year Without Underwear gives us an American “everyman” abroad.

Making Therapy Work for You: Have Your Feelings Without Your Feelings Having You

I’ve noticed that most people come in to therapy with some preconception about what to do with their feelings in session: Some believe that venting will help them to heal, others feel that it will be most helpful to remain distanced from their feelings so that they can analyze them. They’re both right. And they’re both wrong. It’s the use of both of these modes in alternation that’s most helpful — though I think that there are better ways to describe them than “venting” and “analyzing.”

We need to value our feelings and use them rather than trying to get rid of them through either venting or analyzing. I’ve found that the best way to do this is to let feelings rise into consciousness, fully experience them, contain them and learn from them, and then decide what to do about them. This means expressing feelings without reacting to them impulsively, and then making conscious decisions about how to live based on what we learn from them.

This whole process could take minutes or years. Some feelings take a long time to fully rise into conscious, and to be fully experienced and fully understood. Others emerge quickly.

This brings up a common misconception about the best way to handle feelings. Many people confuse repression with suppression: Repression is an unconscious way of avoiding disturbing feelings. Suppression, on the other hand, is a healthier tactic in which we make a conscious decision not to focus on something that we already understand. Once you have some sense of why you worry needlessly about something, for instance, it makes perfect sense to delay worrying about that issue, quarantining it until Saturday morning from 10:15 until 10:40 if you need to. It’s not necessarily bad to put a feeling aside if you already understand what you have to learn from it.

One reason that it’s important to carefully explore feelings as they occur in the session is that we often have layers of feeling, and the obvious layer may not be the most significant one: anxiety may sit on top of anger or sadness, and anger may easily cover fear.

Anne, for instance, was furious that her cousin Sandra cancelled her trip to visit her. She knew that Sandra had some serious problems that made it almost impossible to visit, so she could try to be reasonable about it and avoid the feeling rather than lambasting someone who really didn’t deserve it. But she also knew that she tended to become resentful or explode later when she did that. Instead she decided to sit with the feeling, describe it, hold it, see how it felt in her body, and notice the feelings of sadness and fear underneath. She eventually realized that she was very afraid of being alone and forgotten, an old feeling that had little to do with her cousin, and much to do with her past and the way she treated herself. She decided that she needed to make an effort to nurture her relationships with people who had made themselves available, but with whom she hadn’t followed through. And that she needed to thoughtfully and more regularly “visit” her own feelings rather than ignoring them or reacting to them impulsively. This was just one in a series of episodes in which she learned to regulate her affect, to have her feelings without her feelings having her.

Some people have difficulty accessing feeling at all. If this is the case for you, you’ll need to slow down and focus. Focus on the body to see what you can learn from it. Focus on any seemingly insignificant reactions you have toward your therapist. Focus on the incidents during your week in which you felt the greatest degree of happiness or sadness. It’s like slowing down a video to watch the details in slow motion. Or to use an auditory metaphor instead, it’s like a radio signal that’s very faint. You’ll need clear everything else away and listen carefully at first. As you come to identify and recognize the signals, they’ll eventually be easier to hear.

One sure way to sabotage the effectiveness of your therapy is to engage in avoidant and addictive behavior — behavior that allows you to temporarily evade disturbing feelings. If you start to feel something in your session, but then drown it in a binge of drinking, eating or shopping, you won’t get as much from the process. This is not to say that you have to wait to get over your addiction before you begin therapy, but that you may need to focus on the addiction in the early part of your process.

Emotions have a communicative aspect to them — they want something to be witnessed. I’m stressing your response to your own emotions here, but I also want to be clear that there is no substitute for having your emotions seen and empathically received by someone else — in this case your therapist. But they can’t do that if you don’t let them see what you’re going through.

Finally, as we improve our relationship with our difficult feelings, we also find that we can savor the pleasurable ones more easily. And that makes the process of psychotherapy even more worthwhile.

This is the third post in a series about how clients can most effectively use their time in psychotherapy. For an introduction see my post 10 Tips to Make Therapy Work for You, and for a complete description of 10 these tools see my book: I’m Working On It In Therapy.

I’ll be posting next week about how to use the therapeutic relationship. Click “Become a Fan” at the top of this post if you want to make sure you don’t miss it.

10 Tools to Help You Give Without Getting Drained

In our society, where we have a tendency to constantly be in a state of “go go go” it can be a real challenge to find the energy to give anymore without feeling stressed, tired, exhausted and just flat out, well, drained.

Maybe it’s after a long day of work and you find yourself getting a call from a family member with another problem and you just don’t have the energy to deal with it. Or maybe it’s struggling to have patience with that one difficult customer.

Regardless of the exact scenario, these situations can all be really challenging. If we don’t take time out of our day to really tune into ourselves and give ourselves some good ol’ self-care, we can find ourselves in this constant place of being drained and stressed out. And frankly, that’s not good for you or anyone around you.

So here are 10 simple tools that can help you give without feeling drained:

1. Spend time in nature. Go out and soak up some sun, breathe in the fresh air, walk barefoot in the grass, and marvel in the blissful sound of birds chirping.

2. Exercise! When we strengthen our bodies, we also strengthen our entire being. So go for a run, do some yoga, or hit up the gym.

3. Eat well. Are you finding yourself always in a hurry and rushing over to McDonald’s? Well if you really want to replenish yourself so you’re not drained and stressed out all the time, then find some alternative foods to eat that are much nutritious for you. Eat some fruit and veggies. Have a salad. Maybe even try out going paleo, vegan or gluten free. Find food that energizes you and makes you feel like you’re at your optimal health.

4. Get enough sleep. One of the most important factors of our mental health and overall well-being is the amount and quality of sleep we get each night. After all, our brains can’t function optimally if we don’t give it a chance to rest! The general rule of thumb is to shoot for somewhere between 7 to 9 hours each night, depending on what your body needs.

5. Support yourself. We can’t really support others, nor can we fully receive support from others, if we don’t support ourselves. So support yourself in the work you do by praising yourself for a job well done, rather than be super critical about it not being “good enough.” Support yourself in relationships by being in relationships with people who are kind, loyal, and respectful of you.

6. Meditate — often. Enough said.

7. Breathe! When we’re stressed and worn out, we habitually forget to breathe. So bring everything back to the breath and do it often! Take deep breaths and then let it all out.

8. Do things that light you up. Be sure that you’re taking time each week (or even day) to do things that you really truly enjoy doing. Do what you feel passionate about. Take time to write, take photos, grow a garden, take your dog for a walk, dance… do whatever helps bring more fun to your life and energizes you.

9. Bring passion into what you do. While it is important to do things that you already feel passionate about, it’s also important to put forth the effort to bring passion into what you do already. Bring passion into regular exercise routine, bring passion into your not-quite-dream-job, and bring passion into your new diet. When we bring passion into all aspects of our life, we can then find ourselves much happier — which supplies us with plenty of joy and love to share with others.

10. Give yourself some alone time. While it can be easy with our busy lives to always be socializing and doing things with others, it is also important to give yourself some “me” time to do whatever with yourself. Take some time to yourself to journal, read, or reflect on your day. Take some time to go someplace by yourself so you have space to deal completely with your own thoughts, emotions, and overall experience. Allow yourself to take some moments to stop and look within — for it is within that our endless supply of love dwells.

How to Maximize Your Swim Wardrobe Without Spending a Dime

Have you looked through your swimsuits from last year and realized that you’re missing some tops and bottoms of your bikinis? Hey, it happens. That’s when mixing tops and bottoms from different suits comes in, but as you know from missing prints in other genres, it takes some skill.

We spoke to Gabby Sabharwal, designer of swimwear brand Giejo, who knows a thing or two about print mixing when it comes to swimwear. Her line was born out of a fruitless search for a swimsuit that she says “fit my personal style of mixing and matching print, textures, and silhouettes.” To help in the styling process, she shared with us her tips on swimwear print mixing, just in time for summer:

print-urban

  1. Opposites Attract: “I love putting together unexpected combinations, like stripes and animal prints, or contrasting colors of the same print,” Sabharwal says.
  2. Step Outside of Your Comfort Zone: :The beach is the one place where you can have fun!” she says. “Try a new color or vibrant prints—after all, all colors go with a healthy glow.”
  3. It’s All About Balance: “If you’re wearing a loud print, pair it with something more traditional, like stripes,” she adds. “For a large print, try mixing it with a micro print. The same applies for silhouettes: If you are wearing a high-waisted bottom, pair it with a more feminine top.

What Tabloid Headlines Would Look Like Without The Sexism

Magazine tabloids tend to treat women like zoo animals instead of people.

Created by college students Erin Valentine and Ashley McGetrick, a new project called “Breaking News: Deconstructing Entertainment Journalism” highlights the rampant sexism in entertainment media by revealing what headlines would look like if tabloids treated female celebrities like real people.

The two seniors at Elon University created the project for their capstone course on women and gender in the media.

“By translating these headlines to be more feminist-friendly, we hoped to call out sexist and unequal cultural influences, especially of celebrities, in the media,” Valentine told The Huffington Post. “Sensationalized tabloid media preys on the female body and an idealized version of ‘womanhood.'”

Headlines involving female celebrities are notorious for objectifying women, Valentine said. From shaming women who go makeup-free to criticizing women for wearing gym clothes, tabloids subject women to a lot of sexism that men rarely experience.

“Whether in line at the grocery store, scrolling through Facebook or flipping through television channels, it is hard to miss headlines worshiping, critiquing or questioning the physiques and lifestyles of female public figures,” Valentine said. “While seemingly harmless, these hyped up headlines attack more than just the people pictured.”

It’s not only the headlines that are implicitly sexist, but the stories written about these female celebrities. Instead of writing about how hard-working Blake Lively is when she attends dozens of events in one day, stories are written about how many outfits she wore.

Valentine noted that consumers do have an impact on these headlines. “They should also acknowledge that they have the power to push back as viewers and as the audience to encourage more feminist-friendly entertainment journalism,” she said.

Check out some of Valentine’s and McGetrick’s feminist-friendly headlines below.

On Mother’s Day, Remembering Mothers Without Living Children

Mother’s Day evokes bittersweet emotions in bereaved mothers everywhere. The pain of loss may be especially poignant for mothers without living children. Memories of loss transposed onto a world awash in flowers and greeting cards leaves women reeling. Too often, their experience of motherhood is largely unacknowledged by society. Taking place in May, a month that pulses with such tremulous beauty in long-awaited spring, Mother’s Day can threaten to break the best of us.

Says Toni Brabec, whose only baby daughter Olivia died in 2013:

Before, I saw Mother’s Day like most people do. A special day to honor our mothers… [I]’d pick out cards, a small gift… Now on Mother’s Day, I would rather stay in or just have a small gathering… [F]or me, who has no evidence of children other than the photos in my house, I am overlooked and/or it is assumed I am not a mother at all… it is difficult because in my heart, I know I am a mother. But the world doesn’t always see it like that.

This is what loving family and friends can consider doing to help support mothers without living children coping with loss.

1. Do acknowledge and affirm her standing as mother.
You can absolutely include bereaved mothers in Mother’s Day events. This may feel initially awkward, but it truly is both appropriate and helpful. The tone of inclusion may feel a bit more subdued, but the mother without living children should have her heroic struggle to mourn, remember, and find meaning marked. She will decline if she is not comfortable, but she will appreciate the invitation.

2. Do send a card.
It is comforting to receive an acknowledgement in the mail regarding loss. These cards are evidence of the existence of babies gone too soon, and these apparently slight things carry precious love to shore up mothers mourning and remembering.

3. Don’t try to talk her out of grief.
Resist the impulse to try to make her feel better. Instead, let her miss her child. Most expressions of grief that tow with them an undercurrent of the “at least,” will only inadvertently push the bereaved away.

4. Do ask her questions about her loss/her birth/her stillbirth.
Depending upon your relationship to the bereaved, dialogue can be helpful. It promotes the integration of grief and complex healing. Loss, when processed, can reveal phenomenally painful truths about being alive. However, the other side of the pain is the recognition of the beauty that is also inherent in living. Bereaved mothers don’t take much for granted. They can teach a great deal in this regard.

5. Do take care to acknowledge the loss of their baby.
If you see a Facebook post pertaining to loss, the mother is reaching out. Go ahead and comment — add your voice to the supportive community. You may not know what to say, but “I am thinking of you,” is a powerful statement.

Part of the isolation born of perinatal loss is the lack of shared memories. It is for this reason that efforts to invite the sharing of memories have great import. The bereaved mother is working to find her place in a whole new world. It is a lonely journey and she does appreciate the company.

Live Without Pain: A New Theory on What’s Wrong With You and How to Fix It.


This is the US version, UK version also available. Do you have an illness or injury that just won’t heal? Do you suffer from unexplained aches, pains, stiffness, or fatigue that won’t go away, no matter what you try? The culprit may literally be right under your nose or hanging around your neck. Simon King explains his theory, based on careful observation, that many necklaces, rings, watches, piercings, and dental work affect your sensory nervous system and muscle reflexes – whether you can feel anything happening or not! Based on a well-known but under-appreciated mechanism called ‘Proprioception,’ Live without Pain reveals how many common items activate proprioceptive mechanisms which leave you vulnerable to pain, and how you can remedy these without drugs, surgery or exercises. It offers individuals and health practitioners alike simple solutions that build health; sometimes resolving even long-term health issues in the process.

Can artists Procreate Without Going Bankrupt?

I’m a member of two different Facebook groups that have frequent postings; one of them is a group for moms, many of whom also happen to be artists. The other one is a forum for classical singers, a few of whom happen to be parents. There isn’t a lot of crossover topics between the two groups — but this week, unrelated to one another, I read a post on my classical singer group asking whether people who had kids felt that it affected their careers as singers, and another post on my mom’s page asking whether any artists that were also parents were managing to keep their artistic careers going while still staying afloat financially. Where the crossover between these two queries occurred was mostly in the comments section, where people who were artists and parents explained how they managed to keep from moving their families into cardboard boxes, and what sacrifices they had made in order to add children to their lives. Everyone said that whatever sacrifices they had made were worth it, and they wouldn’t change a thing. But almost all of the commenters with kids mentioned that either they or their spouses had moved into some sort of academia or other work in order to pay the bills and remain at least somewhat financially stable. The number of people who had moved in different directions than their original artistic intentions was almost everybody. Most people said they were content with where their choices had led them, but it lead my mom’s group to start a discussion about why it’s next to impossible to be an artist — and especially a couple in which both people are artists and self employed — and make a go of having a family.

For opera singing parents, the challenges are quite extraordinary. Because not only are there all the challenges of being a self-employed artist, whose income is sporadic and difficult to predict, and who has no health or retirement benefits from their job, but we must factor in the concern that our jobs require constant travel, which makes adding a child into the mix pretty insane. Not only do we have to arrange extra plane tickets and different accommodations than may be provided by the company for whom we are working — usually at our own expense — but we have to arrange childcare in a strange place, ahead of time, without even having a chance to meet with the candidates. So a mother must bring her child with her to a strange place, and the very next day leave them with a strange person while they go to rehearsal. Or we leave our child with someone back home for a long period of time. The fees of opera singers have notoriously dwindled in recent years, and the competition has made jobs less available and less frequent. After a singer pays a coach to help them learn their role, and lives in a strange city for several weeks without pay, they then get a lump sum for their performances, of which 10-20 percent gets paid to an agent, and another 15-30 percent should be set aside for taxes. After deducting the costs of monthly health insurance (probably at least $ 700-1000 per month for the singer and child) and any retirement that could be set aside (ha ha — we wish) that doesn’t leave the singer a lot to work with. And I’m not only talking about struggling singers, I’m talking about singers who sing in the major opera houses around the world. And if you’re adding onto that the extra expense of travel, accommodations and possibly childcare, you are left wondering why you bothered to leave your house in the first place. And while other types of artists have different challenges, almost all of them face rising expenses and dwindling profits, and share similar concerns to we opera singing parents.

Which leads me to the question; should artists even bother to procreate? Is it fair to our children that we lead such financially itinerant lifestyles? If someone wants to have a family, shouldn’t they just do the responsible thing and get a “real” job?

The problem with this line of questioning (which so many artists face from friends, family and strangers sitting next to us on airplanes and in coffee shops on a daily basis) is that it really does question whether being an artist is of value to a society at all. Because if having children is so impossible for someone who works as an artist — and I’m not even talking about a struggling “wannabe” artist, but someone who actually makes a living as one — then it suggests that it is not a career worth being compensated for, but merely an avocation for a young and untethered person who doesn’t mind living la vie boheme, using old chairs for firewood and eating sardine sandwiches.

I bring this up because there are other countries who consider these problems. There are countries who provide health care and education to all their citizens (Sweden, Denmark, Norway — most of Europe actually), who provide paid maternity leave to expecting mothers (and fathers) even if their jobs don’t (Canada), who give stipends to every family for each child they have (Germany), and who even have government sponsored excellent childcare as well as insurance for artists who are between jobs (France). Many of these countries also have state sponsored arts funding, coincidentally. So artists are paid pretty well, and don’t have to go around worrying all the time about how they are going to make ends meet. Artists are acknowledged as being participating, contributing members of society, and their worth isn’t taken for granted. Yes, the citizens of these countries also pay higher taxes — but not that much higher considering all the benefits they are offered.

So we’re back to the same question I ask so often in my blog posts — why doesn’t America value artists more and allow for them to continue to contribute without constantly worrying about financial collapse? I’m not talking about handouts — I’m talking about extensive tax breaks for childcare, and access to truly affordable health care, and community support to the organizations that create art so that they can pay artists fair wages. I’m talking about wage earning that is commensurate with education, and acknowledgement that arts organizations enrich communities both fiscally and socially.

Coming full circle back to my Facebook forums and where they intersect — parents all over this country are struggling to make ends meet because of things like childcare and healthcare. Artists all over this country are struggling because of lack of income, lack of jobs and lack of government support. In a way, artists are prepared to make excellent parents because they are used to finding creative solutions to financial hurdles, something most parents have to do many times in their child’s lives, regardless of their occupation. But this isn’t the only thing that can make artists great parents. Artistic parents can’t help but encourage artistically minded children, whether that means artists or merely arts supporters. And we desperately need more people who believe that creativity is a vital arm to our society. So we need artists to keep procreating so we can make a new generation of people who are willing to think creatively and who think of artists as necessary members of their community.

So I say to all artists; go forth and procreate. You are creative. You will figure out a way around the financial and logistical hurdles which you will encounter. And you will hopefully become part of the village so essential to other artists in your community also raising families.

And also; nothing inspires creativity quite like trying to have a conversation with a toddler.

Marcus recently left a senior executive position and is adjusting to his new life as what a friend has labeled him: a Renaissance man. During this period of adjustment from profit- and process-driven, almost manic, activity to a more leisurely pace, he is researching many interests to keep his brain active in order to maintain his sanity. Among other things, he is traveling extensively, with his camera, finding and enjoying many different experiences. He is based in downtown Chicago and from there stays busy by working for some local charities and remains in touch with the world of business through the almost compulsory consultancy work expected from retired executives. This aspect of his life is as near as he ever is likely to get to the state of normal. His friends keep reminding him about the need to become grounded, a condition he never wants to be in full time. He finds travel and writing pleasurable ways to pass the time, but do they feed the inner man? As a financially independent and self-labeled man of the world, he thinks not. He has therefore set out on a quest to see if true love exists and if there is a soul mate out there just for him. He has been close to true love a few times, but so far he has not experienced the really deep emotional connection with another person that he believes exists. He has yet to see it or find it, which is why he has set out on a mission to see if he can find real deep, true love. To record his adventures and emotions, he decided to write three books to help him find what he is looking for. The first book, 21 Days to Love, has been published. It explains the beginning of his mission, which started with an intense and powerful love affair with Tina. That relationship ended, and shortly afterward he met Anastasia. They went on a twenty-one day journey and fell in love with each other a little, or maybe a lot. This second book details his confusion at deciding who he is and where he is going, as reflected in the title-Story With

You’d love to have a flat belly for the party tonight, but thanks to one too many sodas or that basket of tortilla chips, zipping your pants is a real struggle. Abdominal bloating not only looks bad but can also cause physical discomfort. The good news? Experts say stomach bloating is a condition you can avoid pretty easily.   Unless your stomach bloating is caused by a medical condition such as liver or heart disease, the only real cause is intestinal gas – not “water weight.”   It is a myth that bloating in the stomach is from fluid accumulation in healthy adults, because the abdomen is not a place where fluids accumulate first,” Jensen says. “Instead, you would see it in your feet or ankles as long as you are upright.

How To Decorate A Room Without Putting Everything In Front Of The TV

We’re creatures of habit, and there are few times this has proven truer than when trying to incorporate a TV into our decor. It almost always takes center stage. But just because the majority of people choose to make the boob tube the focal point of a room — 52 percent of homeowners admitted to Houzz that they have televisions in their bedroom— doesn’t mean you have to go with the crowd.

Next time you go to set up a room (or spontaneously feel the urge to move around some furniture), try taking a TV-free approach instead. Not sure how to do that? These focal point alternatives are here to help. And, as an added bonus, they’re pretty much guaranteed to be loads better than some terrible reality show blasting in the background.

A World Without Cancer and AIDS

A World Without Cancer and AIDS


Common sense dictates that there are only two major causes of human diseases: parasites and man-made chemicals. If we could eliminate these two causes, our body could, by itself, eliminate any diseases for good. The use of man-made chemicals, like antibiotics, in eliminating parasites does not accomplish this task.Man-made chemicals accumulate in the body causing long-term side-effects. Therefore, there is a need to avoid any form of man-made chemical treatments in favor of other alternative approaches.Before going any further, one must understand that the human body is fully equipped with built-in mechanisms to protect itself from parasitic infections and chemical imbalance, i.e. auto-immune system and homeostasis.The immune system is a complex defense mechanism which protects us from any parasitic infection, whether viral, bacterial, pathogenic, etc. Under optimal conditions, the immune system must be able to repel all viral and microbial attacks, or if not, will eventually learn to repel them in time.Homeostasis is the body’s self-regulating process which maintains chemical balance, among others, to maintain stability while dynamically adjusting to conditions that are optimal for survival.The human body is also capable of self-regeneration to some degree, e.g. wound healing.This implies that wherever the wound is located, i.e. injured organs and tissues, it can be repaired through cellular regeneration. It can do so with higher efficiency when the body could concentrate more on the healing rather than on fighting off the infections or neutralizing bad chemicals. This is always the case because the human body’s ability to serve itself is directly limited to the amount of energy it can expend.Indeed, the human body is complete in and of itself, and should have the ability to survive indefinitely in a perfect environment. With good nutrition, regular exercise, and adequate rest, we are assured of longer lifespans such as those biblical characters. However, with phys

What it will do, however, is walk you through a few ways I have almost ruined everything and why I continue to insist on almost ruining everything when I talk about the future with my long-term boyfriend, Josh.

At one extreme, there are those who are obsessed with their future plans. They have timelines. They have rings and baby names and curtains and grave plots picked out. They have built their Tunnel of Love and they are just so excited to live in it forever you guys and tell you all about it… whether you like it or not.

At the other end of the spectrum are the couples that turn into mob witnesses when asked about their future plans. Are they thinking of getting married? They can’t recall. Do they want kids? No comment. They haven’t thought about it. They’re playing it by ear. They’re seeing where things go. They’re perfectly happy right now, and that’s good enough for them, alright, Mom and Dad?! Jesus…

And where does my relationship fall on this spectrum?

I live in a Tunnel of Love with a mob witness.

I’ve always been a planner. Or maybe it’s more accurate to say that I’ve always been a dreamer. My idle mind is constantly concocting elaborate fantasies about all the things I really want to — or even just think in passing it might be cool to — do with my life. I fantasize about having a beautiful apartment. I fantasize about winning a Tony. I fantasize about getting married and having kids. I fantasize about being on Chopped. I fantasize about traveling and working abroad. I fantasize about quitting jobs dramatically and telling off bosses and stupid coworkers. I am very rarely, if ever, thinking about tonight or tomorrow. Or even next month. I tend to be thinking one-three years in advance most of the time. That’s my default mind-wandering horizon.

My boyfriend Josh is the opposite. Concrete plans for the weekend elude him, let alone plans for going home for Christmas, getting our own place next year, the possibility of living anywhere other than New York or having a family ever. It’s not right now, so it’s not taking up space in his brain. Dinner? Yeah, we can talk about dinner.

I envy him in a lot of ways. This kind of ever-presence is a brand of Zen I am incapable of achieving. He can be Here and Now. That’s a powerful paradigm, and one that probably grants him a good deal more mental peace than I have. Because while I’m scheming and planning so far in the future that I cannot possibly anticipate the outcome, I am also worrying and stressing and gnashing-of-teething about all the uncertainty– the uncertainty I have created. In most cases, it’s not helpful. But it does modify how I conduct myself in the present.

For example, knowing we are both theater artists (read: chronically impoverished) in different capacities, I try to cultivate additional revenue streams outside of theater. I am acutely conscious of how much more money I’m making than the year before and how much I can save in anticipation of our next security deposit or to start a Roth IRA or to buy health insurance. Right now, we’re getting by, which means two things: Josh isn’t stressing because we’re actually getting by, and I am stressing because we’re only getting by! Same reality, different reactions.

Over the years, my attempts to engage Josh in conversations about our future have mostly been lessons of what not to do. Don’t assume we’re on the same page. Don’t assume we’re not on the same page. Don’t expect him to initiate a conversation, but give him a chance to have a conversation before jumping down his throat. I’ve gone into a tailspin more than a few times in my paranoia that we must not actually be as happy as we seem because we can’t have functional conversations about when we might (hypothetically) want to get married(?) someday. We’ve spent long, frustrating hours talking about how we talk about the future. I’ve learned a lot about how to talk to him to find out how he really feels, and he’s learned a lot about what I need to hear him share to avoid existential meltdown.

Knowing that he wasn’t building a little Tunnel of Love felt — and at times still feels — so personal. He couldn’t possibly be as serious about us as I am! Look at all the work I’ve (imagined I’ve) done! But over time, over late-night Skype sessions and meandering text threads and good, old fashioned hashing it out with the door closed, I came to an ah-ha moment: realizing (and reminding myself) that simply because we look at the future from different angles doesn’t mean that we aren’t looking at the same future.

Josh is serious — in a language that is hard for me to understand. Same reality, different reactions. I’ve had relationships tank as we’ve both been busily engaged in constructing an elaborate Tunnel of Love… only to find that our relationship couldn’t fill the vast space we’d carved out for our life together. We came up short of our blueprints. Having two architects does not automatically ensure success.

No, he doesn’t daydream on the subway the way I do. He doesn’t have many full-term ideas about what the future looks like. But he’s sure that it’s with me, and that’s the most important plan of all.

‘Ring Cam’ Lets You Record A Marriage Proposal Without Lifting A Finger

In an age when marriage proposals frequently go viral, there’s a lot of pressure to capture the big moment in just the right way.

But what if you don’t have a four-man camera crew or Hollywood-worthy film editing skills? That’s where Ring Cam comes in.

The Ring Cam, which was launched in October 2013, is basically a ring box with a tiny camera inside. So when it’s time to pop the question, the bride- or groom-to-be’s reaction is instantly captured.

ring cam

Ring Cam is the brainchild of four college students from Michigan. One of its creators, Scott Brandonisio, sat down with Good Morning America to discuss the perks of the new device.

“Only the person proposing actually knows its there,” he explained. “So you’re able to capture that genuine element of surprise.”

Indeed, most viral proposal videos involve elaborate schemes in which camera men are clearly visible. As you can see from Ring Cam’s past proposals, the shocked reactions are the best part of the videos.

The gadget can be purchased for $ 149.00 to $ 249.00 from the company’s website, or you can rent the box for just $ 99.

Be sure to watch the Good Morning America segment above for more info.

Used – Gabriel Garcia Marquez, winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize for Literature and author of “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, started his literary career with the publication of “The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor”…”On February 22 we were told that we would be returning to Columbia”. In 1955 eight crew members of Caldas, a Colombian destroyer, were swept overboard. Velasco alone survived, drifting on a raft for ten days without food or water.

5 Realistic Ways to DIY Your Wedding Without Going Into the Red

It’s no secret that wedding planning can be a rabbit hole to an empty bank account if you allow yourself to get too carried away. That’s why more brides (and even their supportive grooms) are turning to do-it-yourself projects as a way to cut costs and create a completely customized aesthetic. But it’s easy to underestimate the amount of work (and precious time) it takes to achieve a certain look. Before taking the DIY plunge, it’s important to establish a creative vision for your big day. From there, you can then separate the details into “to DIY” or “not to DIY” categories before embarking on a craft supply spending spree, only to realize you could have saved money by renting or hiring someone to execute certain elements.

For those of us who aren’t queens of crafting (let’s be honest, that’s most of us) or don’t have bottomless budgets, making wedding décor can be a daunting task. Here are five simple elements you can DIY that are (practically) foolproof and won’t break the bank:

1. Centerpieces and Table Décor. Collect various vessels of different sizes, shapes, colors and heights such as vintage bottles, teacups and drinking glasses from your cupboard. Group them in interesting ways, placing anywhere from three to seven in the middle of the table, and fill them with different florals, feathers, berries, pinecones and even pods, acorns or sticks collected from your yard. For example, one table might have a vintage brass pot with a succulent planted inside, a low ceramic vase can hold large bright blooms, while a delicate glass beaker with long ethereal greenery adds a lush feel. One of our favorite couples collected miscellaneous vessels for months, saving bottles from grocery items, perusing flea markets and dusting off family heirlooms. They grouped them at each table with florals of different heights and shapes hand-cut from their garden in addition to loose ones from the florist. The result: a boho-chic menagerie that delighted guests and made for great table conversation.

2. Favors. Invite guests to take one of your handmade table setting arrangements with them at the end of the reception. If you want something more uniform, baked goods in brown paper bags tied with baker’s twine and a tag have a homemade feel. One of our couples knew there would be excess dessert at their wedding, so they placed brown paper boxes near the table towards the end of the night, and invited guests to take treats to go, sealed with a custom sticker ordered inexpensively online. Favors don’t have to be extravagant, just thoughtful.

3. Programs. You don’t have to be a graphic designer to make eye-popping programs. While you may want to get some design inspiration from an Etsy vendor, or a website like Wedding Paper Divas, it’s easy to add that little something extra to your printed pieces. One of our couples glued one side of their card-stock program to large popsicle sticks for instant fans — perfect for their orchard wedding in the heat. They had their program file printed, and painted the sticks for added pizzazz.

4. Photo Booth Props. Lots of couples are opting for photo booths to capture images of their guests on their special day. The best part of the photo booth is, of course, the props! We’ve found it’s so simple to cut out bow ties, mustaches and lips from funky patterned paper and attach to striped paper straws. Collect old hats from friends, family or thrift stores along with boas and glasses. You can also make crowns out of paper, and embellish them with rhinestones, ribbon or feathers from your local crafts store. Put all your props in a basket with a hand-drawn sign or chalkboard.

5. Cake Topper. Forgo the porcelain bride and groom figurines. Think about what is special to you as a couple. If you met at a baseball game, that ball you caught, causing you to fall into your destiny (literally), might make the perfect topper. Fresh flowers from the rose garden you so lovingly tended together, or fresh pine branches from the spot he proposed are all easy, inexpensive and meaningful ways to add that finishing touch to your cake. Some of our favorite cake toppers have included fresh cut greenery with a few well-placed blooms on a plain white cake and a bird’s egg found outdoors in a nest, embellished with the couple’s name and a few craft feathers.

Remember, your guests are there for you — not to be wowed by an over-the-top affair. Above all, have fun and know that all these little things add up to one special day that signifies the beginning of your new life with the one you love the most.

30 Ways To Do The Things You Love Without Your Smartphone

In our tech-obsessed culture, our smartphones seem to be as essential as our wallets when we’re heading out the door — and when we accidentally leave home without ours, panic ensues.

But what if we started doing it on purpose?

Before there were gadgets stocked with newsfeeds, emails and text messages, there were these activities. Next time you’re looking something to do — device free — take a look at the list below.

1. Paint or color something.
painting
You wouldn’t want your watercolors to splatter your screen, right? Before there was the Draw Something app, there was a coloring book and a canvas — and that activity you did daily as a kid may help ease stress and anxiety as an adult.

2. Take a nap without using your phone as an alarm.
Studies have shown that stashing your phone under the pillow can disrupt your sleep, anyway.

3. Go for an iPod-free run.
Let nature be your soundtrack this time.

4. Log some one-on-one time with your pet over the ones on YouTube.
golden retriever
As addicting as funny cat videos are, there are more benefits to hanging with your real-life pets. A recent study found that 20 percent of pet owners would give up cuddling with their pets over giving up their smartphones (woof!). Spend an afternoon with your furry friend — research has proven that owning a pet can significantly lower your stress.

5. Take a break from binge-watching Netflix and head to a matinee movie or play instead.

6. Put pen to paper.
Studies have shown that writing down what you’re grateful for has a positive impact on overall happiness and the physical act of writing can even help you learn better. Instead of typing a text message on a mini keyboard, try it the old fashioned way.

7. Go on a hike and use a paper map to help you find your way.
hike

8. Perfect your Baked Alaska with a recipe from an actual cookbook.

9. Go to dinner with your friends.
Food is meant to be enjoyed, not just Instagrammed. Next time you go out to dinner with your friends, try the phone stacking game. The first to pick up their phone during the meal also picks up the tab.

10. Read an actual newspaper.

11. Play some brain games on paper.
Exercise your mind with some sudoko or a crossword puzzle — it may even make you more productive and boost your creativity.

12. Get lost in a a real book instead of a Kindle.
reading book
Reading has numerous brain benefits. Getting wrapped up in a good story can reduce stress, may help you sleep better and even may make you more empathetic.

13. Flip through a regular magazine (not one on Flipboard).

14. Go for a drive with no particular destination or GPS device.

15. Thumb through old photo albums.
And no, not the albums you have on Facebook. Studies have found that a little nostalgia can actually be a good thing. Reflecting on the past can boost your optimism for the future because it raises your self-esteem, according to a Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin study.

16. Indulge in a little mindfulness meditation.
meditation
Rather than zoning out by tuning into your phone, go deeper with a meditation session. As “Nightline” anchor Dan Harris says, meditation is “a bicep curl for your brain.” Meditating for just a little bit each day can ease emotional stress and even strengthen your immune system.

17. Capture photos or a video using a real camera.

18. Pick up an instrument.
By stepping away from the Rock Band and grabbing a real guitar, you could be doing wonders for your wellness. Learning to play an instrument can reduce stress, is linked to better sound processing and helps keep your memory sharp. Don’t know how to play one? Good news: it’s never too late to learn.

19. Play tourist for the day in your own city using a real guidebook.

20. Grab a drink with an old friend from college.
drinks with friends
Make it a point to catch up in-person with those who you’ve fallen out of touch with — it’ll give a whole new meaning to the word “FaceTime.”

21. Watch a sunrise or a sunset without trying to capture it.

22. Take a day trip to a town close to you, sans Google maps.

23. Have a bonding day with your kids or parents.
Forget Skype for a day. Our relationships are valuable and it’s important to strengthen them away from our screens. According to research published in the Journal of Socio-Economics, people’s social connections are worth $ 131,232 a year in terms of life satisfaction.

24. Experience Spotify in real life by going to a concert.

25. Make a scrapbook.
All those pictures you do take on your smartphone have to go somewhere besides Instagram, right?

26. Organize your real desktop.
organized desk
Ultra-organized people know the value of a clean work station. And since those ever-tidy individuals tend to be optimistic, have a can-do attitude and are always prepared, perhaps it’s time to stash the phone for a little while and get to sorting.

27. Brush up on your math skills.
Have your brain be your tip calculator the next time you go to dinner.

28. Forgo Google translator and learn a few new phrases in another language.

29. Star gaze.
starry sky
Since the introduction of stargazing apps, many of us seem to forget that we can observe the stars without using our phones to identify the constellations. Pick a quiet night to just lie underneath the sky and pick out the star patterns you remember from high school.

30. Put together a jigsaw puzzle instead of playing Bejeweled.

The Cold-Weather Beauty Essentials You Can’t Survive Winter Without

-by Phillip Picardi In what appears to be a cruel trick played on us by the North Pole, much of the United States has been trapped in a "polar vortex"-which is the scientific term for "really, really, really cold." In case you were lucky enough to avoid the Arctic conditions (ahem, California) and therefore blissfully unaware, some parts of the country experienced -40 degree temperatures. Ouch. Naturally, when the meteorologist reports impending winter storms, it's due time to stock up on necessities. And while you're likely set with more obvious essentials, like hot chocolate and oversized sweaters, don't discount the importance of a good hand cream or the equally essential winter luxury: a brand-new candle.

Bodies Without Borders: Migrating Discourses of Embodiment

Bodies Without Borders: Migrating Discourses of Embodiment


Globalization is often thought of as an abstract process that happens “out there” in the world. But people are ultimately the driving force of global change, and people have human bodies that are absent in current conversations about globalization. The original scholarly research and first-person accounts of embodiment in this volume explore the role of bodies in the flows of people, money, commodities, and ideas across borders. From Zumba fitness classes to martial arts to fashion blogs and the meanings of tattooing, the contributors examine migrating body practices and ideals that stretch across national boundaries.
