Sugary drinks are linked to obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes -- and the more soda people drink the more likely these outcomes....
I feel my hair bounce like a Breck commercial as I smile at puppies and passers-by. I imagine myself as the Italian girl walking through Florence in the black and white poster that hung in so many college dorms. That I look nothing like a hair model or 20-year-old Italian is moot. The sun on the street mirrors my mood and I give thanks to the great gift of time.
For those of us who have had the opportunity to spend time with Hillary Clinton behind the scenes, away from the cameras, it's time to rally against those who want to create an image of her that suits their agenda and not the real woman.
We never know exactly how many people are listening to what we say, watching what we do, or reading what we post... but we'd be crazy to think that it's anything less than a whole lot.
I've found that in general, people do not intend to be disrespectful, hurtful, or unsafe about food allergies. Most times people genuinely want to have positive experiences. The negative experiences I've had centered around miscommunication or assumptions.
Sure, you're not really in love with all this clutter in your home. Having stuff all over the place isn't something we like because not only does it clutter our physical space, but it also clutters our mind and our emotional state. In fact, it can even affect our ability to focus and process information.
"You are donating your right kidney, correct?" Sharpie Nurse asked without really needing an answer. "That's what my kidnappers said," I cracked, as she pulled aside my hospital gown. She scrawled a big YES on my right side and a NO on my left. I felt cold.
Last week, I had the pleasure of speaking with Tomiko Fraser Hines, the first African American face of Maybelline, self-proclaimed "infertility overcomer," and RESOLVE ambassador. Seven years ago, Hines was diagnosed with infertility due to premature ovarian failure, an autoimmune disorder.
We have found ways to deal with Daddy being away so much. I have become a huge fan of FaceTime and Skype. We no longer have to take pictures or just talk on the phone. We can now have a face-to-face conversation, and both Daddy and the kids feel more connected.
Can we fully support our children while also taking a moment for ourselves? The answer to that, depending on how we spend our time hanging out, is "yes." The long, slow hours of a Little League baseball game can prove both entertaining (if and when something happens) and create an opportunity for parents to use their limited free time more constructively.
Family has always been number one in my life. As a father, I made it a point to be home for dinner every night I was in town. Over my career, I arrived at the office at 8:00 a.m. and I was home for dinner at 6:15 p.m. SHARP!
I recently had the most fascinating consultation with a gentleman who was interested in the possibility of my representing him as his lawyer.
I don't know what's more personally heart-wrenching, emotionally exhausting or spiritually straining on a mundane level than feeling unresolved co...
It seems that technology does not bode particularly well for Emotional Intelligence. That however, does not demonize technology.
I sit across from my grandmother at the Seder table. "Grandma," I say, "I'm wondering what it's like for you, as a Holocaust survivor, who fled Germany as a child, to read these words, 'in every generation an enemy rises'?" She raises her eyebrows and sighs, as if she doesn't have what to say. My grandma has plenty to say.
Oh my gosh! I could see a teeny little light flickering away. It was like the first scene in the movie It's a Wonderful Life when the angels are talking to God up in the galaxy. Every time an angel spoke the stars would glimmer and shine.
