For all of those who have actually read the World Health
Organization report, which is few, including myself as the entire document has
yet to be released, and for those who have read the official press release put
up on The Lancet, a English medical journal that is ripe with conflict, this
needn’t concern you because the conclusion is so incredibly obvious.
For all of the others who are completely bought into this
abuse of statistical evaluation as “credible science,” please continue reading.
It is no secret that the United States has a lot to learn
from how other countries manage their health. Our obesity and preventable
disease rates are consistently among the highest in the world, as are our
numbers of people on prescription drugs. One area in which we are failing most egregiously
is the way our society treats our pregnant and new mothers. I’ll use Sweden as
an example directly opposed to the U.S. in this regard; since 1974, in Sweden, both mother and father
of a new born are given, by law, 12 months of paid parental leave to share.
The best golfer of all time, one of the most dominant
athletes in history, is preparing for his next tournament. Five years ago, we
would be talking about “tune ups” and by how much he will beat the field. “Tiger
or the field?” was a legitimate question asked often by Tony Kornheiser and Michael
Wilbon on ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption, the second half of my favorite hour
of daily programming on T.V. (shout out to Around The Horn). Now, after years
of personal turmoil and professional failure, the more appropriate question is;
will Tiger BE in the field on Saturday?
Baked Berry Oatmeal Recipe is one of my new favorite breakfast meal. Some
say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I’m not sure if I
completely believe that, but I do believe the first meal sets the tone for the
rest of the day.
I know getting complex carbohydrates like oatmeal during the beginning
of the day gives me much needed energy and fiber. However, if you’re like some
of my clients, you may grow tired of flavored instant oatmeal packets. Well
today, I am here to save you from the mundane oatmeal you have come to hate!
The Iran-Contra Affair, the Vietnam War, Global Terrorism,
Enron, the Penn State Sexual Abuse Scandal, and the 2014 NFL Criminal Saga all
have a common constituent element, and it is not one that would come easily to
the mind: activism. That’s the good news.
The American constituency spoke up against the ICA and the
Pentagon Papers were published, wanted to end the Vietnam War so they marched
on Washington and flipped federal momentum. 9/11 allegedly indicated some issue
with Iraq, so we took them to war.
