Hidden Stressors in Daily Living

(0) Comments | Posted January 11, 2016 | 11:38 PM

As a stress management consultant, through dealing with clients over the course of years, I've discovered that the common causes of stress such as work, family and finances are increasingly only part of a series of larger, complex social, economic, political and environmental issues which we face daily in our...

Climate Change, Media, Psychology & the Denial of Death

(8) Comments | Posted April 10, 2014 | 7:16 PM

On the standard, commercial television channels we hear about extreme weather virtually every single day. Droughts in the southwest hardly seen since the days of the Dust Bowl and bizarre weather such as we saw this winter of snow in Houston, vast wildfires in California, mudslides...

Re-Thinking Intelligence

(0) Comments | Posted March 16, 2014 | 3:35 PM

We love intelligence, we respect intelligence and we laud it. We also have a bevy of assumptions around this intangible, ineffable but very powerful force. Is it genetic, learned, earned, programmed in utero, generational? Exciting and yearned for all over the world as it is, it also keeps everyone guessing....

Iran: Nuclear Energy for War or Peace? A Renewable Suggestion

(1) Comments | Posted January 5, 2014 | 10:47 PM

One of the many serious issues the planet faces is whether or not Iran's nuclear program is to develop weapons or to be able to turn on a switch for light, which is quite a profound difference.

The hope of course is that Iran's interest is in the latter as...

They Who Love and Laugh Most Win

(4) Comments | Posted September 5, 2013 | 3:15 PM

It has been said by many that life is a game, an assertion with which many agree.
But how to win? Some think that accruing great material wealth will achieve it, and others fame and power. These are often what society suggests are the pinnacles of achievement in our...

Compassionate vs. Casino Capitalism: Moderation or the Wild West

(2) Comments | Posted May 22, 2013 | 12:29 PM

It has become more obvious than ever that the way we as a nation of these United States of America manage our economic system is skewed heavily in favor of the very wealthy, often referred to, since the onset of the Occupy Movement, as "the 1 percent." While I don't...

Does Mainstream Media Know that 3rd Party Candidates Are Also Running for President?

(1) Comments | Posted November 4, 2012 | 4:34 PM

But of course they do! Everybody knows that there are 3rd Party candidates running for President. But where can you learn about them? How do you know their names, their platforms and who they are? You cannot! That is, unless you access what has been termed "the alternative media", also...

Greed as Psycho-Pathology and Addiction

(15) Comments | Posted July 17, 2012 | 11:05 AM

It is a social norm that people acquire material things to clothe themselves, help them furnish a home, a vehicle for transportation and to engage in modern life, such as the use of a computer, Internet, phone, TV, radio as well as some things for play, enjoyment, sport and entertainment.

Getting Clear About Voting Independent

(3) Comments | Posted April 2, 2012 | 12:57 AM

I should really title this "getting clear of fear about voting 3rd party..." because that's really all it is. It is my premise that we'll only find quality candidates in independent parties. We'll be hard-pressed to find them in the two, ol' boy clubs called the Republican and Democrat parties...

The Ways of Love

(0) Comments | Posted February 15, 2012 | 6:06 PM

Once a year we celebrate the subject which is said "makes the world go round," yet we spend all of one full day on what is the primary preoccupation of most all theater, movies, TV shows, novels and almost all fiction. So many people's lives these days in the 21st...

Socially-Conscious Banking: End to Foreclosures & Occupy Your Home

(0) Comments | Posted November 11, 2011 | 2:16 AM

I'll start radical and come closer to the moderate middle, I think.

The idea of a bank taking away someone's house, I suggest, is an utterly radical, inhumane and bad idea. Who came up with it, Mr. Potter?

It immediately puts money before health, education, children's and family well-being. It...

Socially-Conscious Stress Management

(0) Comments | Posted November 1, 2011 | 5:25 PM

There is so much turmoil in our nation and in the world today, I see that people are overwhelmed and significantly stressed in trying to understand and deal with the differing scales of difficulty and stress, and prioritize them in a way that allows for some kind of reasonably balanced...

Helping Women Help Themselves Around the World With Micro-Credit: Grameen Bank in Action

(17) Comments | Posted September 26, 2011 | 6:40 PM

I had the unique opportunity to meet Dr. Muhammad Yunus last week in NYC after the screening of a film called Bonsai People directed by Holly Mosher, the first film about the work of Dr. Yunus, the Grameen Bank and the wonderful world of micro-credit. The film brings one into...

Advancing the Conscious Business Paradigm of Cooperative Winning

(0) Comments | Posted August 25, 2011 | 4:53 PM

As business is currently done, there is a high probability of a few corporations aggregating most of the business to be done through rather cutthroat means, buying political influence and then having enough money to either spend exorbitant amounts of media advertising or just buying the media companies themselves --...

Trying to Keep a Straight Face in the Midst of Madness: The Debt Ceiling Kabal & Balance

(7) Comments | Posted August 10, 2011 | 10:25 AM

I know! Government is here to waste our money by waging wars called protecting our national security and then also have enough left, sort of like left-overs on a plate, to actually serve the People themselves. A heaping helping for the military, and a teeny one for everyone else....

Is the Natural Gas Industry Fracking Itself?

(48) Comments | Posted July 5, 2011 | 6:28 PM

The number of social, political and economic problems we're facing today are nothing short of daunting. With the momentum of privatization of otherwise public works, and even subordinating elected officials to the whim of corporate profiteers as in Benton Harbor, MI, gives some indication of how powerful the corporatization of...

Stop, Think and Contemplate: BP Anniversary, Fukushima Disaster & Fracking... Are Our Lives in Jeopardy?

(9) Comments | Posted May 20, 2011 | 3:25 PM

I'd rather stop, think and contemplate a beautiful sunrise really, a powerful, yellow ball rising above the horizon by the shore. Or a sunset with a bloom of colors across the sky. But due to evolution's incredibly slow movement in the minds, hearts and souls of some of our fellow...

Rachel Sequoia Branches Out to Invite us to Share the Air, for a Fee

For what may be the cutest, passion-born-of-youth presentation to a Silicon Valley venture capital company on record, the teenage Rachel Sequoia, microphone in hand and with nothing short of bare feet below, spoke to an audience of serious-looking members of a VC group as she pitched them for $500,000 in...

I know it may sound funny, but by the appearance of the systemically unethical activities taking place routinely in the corporate sphere, of aggregating utterly ridiculous sums of money into the hands of a very few, at the expense of the vast majority of not just the American, but the...

Valentine's Day: A Good Excuse for Love

(14) Comments | Posted February 14, 2011 | 10:09 AM

I am both happy for but a bit distressed about St. Valentine's Day. On the bright side, any reason at all for people to express more love for each other, to each other and even at each other, makes a better world for all. Whether those loves are romantic or...
