Are the Hurricanes and Temperature Records Confirmation of Catastrophic Climate Change?

It wasn’t that long ago that climate scientists and their supporters mocked the critics who looked out their window, saw snow in the winter, and declared “global warming” to be a ridiculous hoax.

The climate scientists were right about that. You can’t predict the future by looking at today’s weather, even when the weather is setting records.

Likewise, my latest understanding of climate science (which is always sketchy at best, and certainly in need of updating now) is that we haven’t yet seen the “signal” of climate change in the hurricane data or the weather extremes. But that view is perhaps a year old. Has science updated its opinion to say the two super-hurricanes and our heat extremes are indeed a credible signal of the beginning of a climate catastrophe?

I watch a lot of news, continuously sampling both sides. I haven’t yet seen a climate scientist weigh in on our recent weather extremes. (Perhaps I missed a few?) So I have no idea whether we are seeing something statistically meaningful right now or not.

Let me put this in more stark terms.

If the recent hurricanes and weather extremes are meaningful in terms of climate change, we really, really, really need to know that. THAT is NEWS. In fact, no news is bigger than that news. Even the risk from North Korea is smaller than the risk of total climate catastrophe. So if the current weather extremes are statistically meaningful, and science confirms, why-the-hell isn’t that the lead story everywhere?

On the flip side, if climate scientists do NOT believe our current weather extremes are meaningful in terms of climate predictions, I’d say THAT should be the lead story too, simply because so many people believe they are seeing the beginning of the end times, climate-wise.

So why is the biggest story in the world conspicuously missing from the news? Keep in mind that climate change is still the biggest story even if the hurricanes are NOT telling us something new. The public wants to know how big the threat is. We’re scared!!!

Instead of that news, we get mostly crickets.

But why?

My working hypothesis is that science doesn’t know one way or another whether the current weather extremes are predictive of things to come. And if they are not yet sure, they would say as much. And that would be a problem for news organizations dedicated to reporting climate science risks as real and dire. If you think the world is best served by convincing the public that climate risks are real, your most socially responsible play in this case is to ignore climate scientists at the moment and let the public believe (without the benefit of scientific support, at least right now) that current temperature extremes are a clear sign of climate collapse.

Take this guy, for example. He’s typical of the what I am seeing on Twitter and even from my friends.

[If Tumblr were not broken right now, you would be seeing an image of a tweet that mocks climate critics for thinking the hurricanes are not proof of climate change. But instead you see this boring text because Tumblr won’t accept an image this morning.]

This fine gentleman believes our current hurricanes are indeed a clear signal of climate change. To be perfectly clear, he could be right. But if he is right, it is not because he is well-informed or smart. It would be a coincidence in this case. As far as I know, climate scientists are not onboard with Roger. They might confirm his gut feeling at some point soon, but for now, Roger is doing his own climate science by watching CNN.

So we have an odd situation in which news organizations can report the most “truthful” version of the reality – according to them – by NOT reporting the best thinking on the topic. Here I’m assuming the best thinking is that it is too soon to know how important recent weather extremes are to our predictions of climate change. But if that story is reported, viewers will get the wrong idea and conclude that climate change is not such a big deal even though these weather extremes are clearly a big deal.

Conversely, by not putting climate scientists on TV, and avoiding the trap of having them say, “We can’t tell yet,” which would be over-interpreted by skeptics, news organizations might be doing the most ethically defensible thing they could do. If they believe climate change is a big problem, and they want the public to agree, these hurricanes are doing a great job of persuasion without the benefit of science. It’s hard for the public to see what is happening right now as coincidence, or a normal variation in weather. It just doesn’t feel like normal. It feels like the first big signal of climate change to many observers because they have been primed for confirmation bias on that topic.

If you are a producer for CNN, and you believe climate change is an enormous problem that the public needs to understand, you would hesitate to allow any segment on the air that conflicts with that objective. For example, you would not give equal time to climate skeptics. And while all attention is on the hurricanes, you might not want a climate scientist to come on the air and say some version of “We have no idea whether these specific weather extremes mean something. We’ll need more data to know if this is a real trend or a blip.” That message would sound to skeptics like confirmation of their skepticism, even though it isn’t. Not even close. But it would be received that way by skeptics because of confirmation bias. Everyone hears what they want to hear.

So the biggest story in the world is largely ignored by news organizations because – and here I speculate – reporting any uncertainty about climate change is not as persuasive as allowing the public to look out the window and generate their own illusions of certainty while also frightened to death.

What would Sam Harris say about the ethics in this situation? Should news organizations lie by omission when they sincerely believe doing so is good for the planet? Or should they put scientists on the air to say “We don’t know yet” and give fuel to the climate skeptics whom they believe are jeopardizing the future of humanity?

I say give us the truth in this case, even if the truth is “We don’t know yet.”

No Second Chance. Death, Life, or Love — Unbounded Always Play For Keeps. There are only two ways to kill Unbounded, and fire isn’t one of them—as law school dropout Erin Radkey learns the hard way. By fluke of a recessive gene, she has become Unbounded, a nearly immortal being with paranormal abilities. Erin’s Change separates her from her loved ones and alters everything she believes to be true. A week earlier she was considering a marriage proposal; now she contemplates the best way to stay alive. Caught in a battle between two Unbounded groups, the Emporium and the Renegades, she is also hunted by a secret mortal society sworn to eradicate the Unbounded gene.  As Erin plunges into this dangerous new life, she must carve out her own place in the madness, protect her mortal family, and decide which group she should join. Her unique ability is vital to both groups in the race to secure an identification software that spells death for all Unbounded—or enslavement for the entire mortal world. Some will stop at nothing to use Erin as one more pawn in a battle that has spanned centuries. Erin’s undeniable attraction to Ritter Langton, whose family was massacred by opposing Unbounded two hundred and forty years ago, complicates her choices. There are no second chances. Death, life, or love—Unbounded always play for keeps. Non-stop action, terrifying consequences, and powerful romance make The Change an exciting addition to the world of romantic urban fantasy.

The Simple Change I Made to Get Through My Divorce

I was the only one in my Child Impact Program that had finalized their divorce. As we went around the room introducing ourselves and giving our “brief” bio, I realized how lucky I was. Almost everyone, once they started talking, was desperate to tell their story and be heard. When my turn came, I was cheerful and brief. It turns out I had the class record for the fastest split. We filed in December and were done by the end of March. It could have been sooner but I wasn’t expecting it to be that easy so I picked a later date. “How did you do it?” everyone asked.

First, in a way, I was lucky. Even though we have two children, we don’t have a great deal of money or possessions. There simply weren’t any assets to fight over. I had met with a lawyer well in advance and knew what I could ask for. The law was clear on child support and the rest wasn’t worth arguing over.

Second, this was his second divorce involving children and since he had the same job, the visitation would be the same as before. We took that as a given.

Third, I was ready financially, emotionally, and physically. I had all my ducks in a row, refused to take any bait for an argument, and had also apologized to my ex-husband for any pain I may have caused. My support systems were in place and I had time marked out time to exercise and meditate so I could work through the inherent stress that this kind of life change brings.

But the best thing I did, which I shared with my class, didn’t cost any money, time, or grief. I simply changed my husband’s name in my contact list to “Co-Parent.” It’s the new politically correct term for your ex. Brilliant! I learned this early on in January from a recently divorced friend who told me what to expect from the Child Impact Program. It makes so much sense. From that point on it became all about the children. There was a complete shift in the dynamic of the relationship. Our weekly meetings became less emotional, the tone changed, and the focus was clear.

Now, a year after my divorce, whenever the name “Co-Parent” pops up on my phone, I’m reminded that it isn’t about me. My new role in the relationship is to communicate (as clearly as possible) what is needed for the children. Any emotion I might have is secondary and for the most part behind me. And most importantly, does not enter the conversation. The reach of that simple switch also goes beyond the name I see on my phone. When I reference him in conversation as “my co-parent,” I can speak respectfully on behalf of my children about their father. The negative connotation of “my ex, their dad” is taken out of the equation. When I told everyone in my Child Impact class what my “secret” was, several people pulled out their phones to make the change. The instructor said she was going to add that tip to her discussion on co-parenting.

Bill Maher Calls Out Rick Santorum On Climate Change

Bill Maher thinks all politicians should prioritize climate change.

In an interview with Rick Santorum on Friday night’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” the host challenged the Republican presidential candidate about his failure to seriously consider the issue. But Santorum didn’t sway from his point of view. 

“There was a survey done of 1,800 scientists and 57 percent said they don’t buy off on the idea that CO2 is the knob that’s turning the climate,” Santorum said. “There’s hundreds of reasons the climate’s changed.”

“Rick,” Maher replied. “I don’t know what ass you’re pulling that out of.” (Some 97 percent of scientists agree that human-caused emissions are driving global warming.)

Elsewhere in the episode, Maher criticized the media’s Donald Trump coverage, and joked about stock photos of the stock market floor.

News: Climate Change Deniers Present Graphic Description Of What Earth Must Look Like For Them To Believe

WASHINGTON—Evoking cataclysmic scenes of extreme weather and widespread drought and famine, the nation’s climate change deniers held a press conference Wednesday to describe exactly what the Earth must look like before they will begin to believe in human-induced global warming.

The group of skeptics, who said that the consensus among 97 percent of the scientific community and the documented environmental transformations already underway are simply not proof enough, laid out the precise sequence and magnitude of horrific events—including natural disasters, proliferation of infectious diseases, and resource wars—they would have to witness firsthand before they are swayed.

“For us to accept that the average surface temperature of the Earth has risen to critical levels due to mankind’s production of greenhouse gases, we’ll need to see some actual, visible evidence, including a global death toll of no less than 500 million people within a single calendar …

Self-Awareness: A Powerful Tool for Change

Self-awareness. Simple concept. Challenging accomplishment. As much as it seems like we should all be able to assess our actions, an astonishing number of people go through life and relationships without any idea how their own behavior can impact their decisions, relationships and ultimately, their happiness.

I have written several articles that address those things in life that can hold you back from relationships. From deciding to be or not to be a victim to deciding to settle or not to settle, I have tried to highlight decisions that we all have control over. After all, we all know that the only behavior we can control is our own. The problem arises when our self-awareness is low. In my book, Sweeten the Deal: How to Spot and Avoid the Big Red Flags in Online Dating, I identify it as “those who fail to embrace their own reality.”

We all know the person who thinks that every bad thing that has happened is someone else’s fault, and, really, someone else’s responsibility. And do you know the person who is willing to date anyone to avoid being alone? Yes, you do. And what about the exhausting friend who continues to participate in old relationships that are supposedly “over” but by the continual communication with these “over” relationship-people and the subsequent regurgitation of the trauma of these “done” relationships, it is obviously not OVER! The ones who have BIG GLARING RED FLAGS in their relationships are the most frustrating… how can you not see what the rest of us see? Help!

But what about ourselves? How often do we take the time to look honestly at our own behavior and decide if we are getting in our own way? Probably not enough. I mean, that’s not fun. And once we become aware that we are getting in our own way, we actually have to change! Ugh! Again, not fun!

So here are some questions to help you start your quest toward self-awareness and your effort to embrace your own reality.

1. Are you unable to spend time alone and feel a need to fill every minute of your time?

2. If you are not dating someone, do you feel inadequate or like a failure?

3. Are you generally angry in your life?

4. Do you find yourself blaming other people when something goes wrong?

5. Do you feel helpless to change your situation in life?

6. Do you continue to communicate with past relationships?

7. Do you find yourself stalking former relationships on social media?

8. Do you overlook flaws in a date/relationship that make you uncomfortable?

9. Do your friends tell you that your date/relationship is unhealthy for you?

10. Do you agonize over your current situation and look back to figure out whose fault it is?

If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” you may need a little self-reflection. When you are aware that you may sabotage your relationships with behavior you can control, it is time to take a break and figure out what is driving your behavior and work on it. If your fear of being alone or willingness to overlook deal breakers is driven by insecurity, that will require some work. Insecurity should not be a driving force in any relationship. If you react to situations in anger, especially misdirected anger, then you need to accept your life as it is now. Take responsibility for your future and release the blame of wrongs past. It only hurts you and your family. Whatever the reason for self-sabotage, until you become aware of it, you can’t stop it. When you acknowledge it and in turn, embrace it, you become empowered to know what you want and make the good choices that will lead you to it! Not easy. But definitely doable!

This article was originally posted on sweetenthedeal.com. Please visit my website for more information about my book or to send an email about your dating experineces.

News in Brief: New Statewide Education Standards Require Teachers To Forever Change Lives Of 30% Of Students

SPRINGFIELD, IL—In an effort to hold classroom instructors more accountable, the Illinois State Board of Education unveiled new statewide education standards Friday that require public school teachers to forever change the lives of at least 30 percent of their students. “Under our updated educator evaluation policy, teachers must make an unforgettable, lifelong impact on at least three of every 10 students and instill a love of learning in them that lasts the rest of their lives,” said chairman James Meeks, adding that based on the annual assessments, if 30 percent of students don’t recall a particular teacher’s name when asked to identify the most influential and inspiring person in their lives, that instructor would be promptly dismissed. “We are imposing these standards to make certain that a significant proportion of students in any given classroom can someday look back and say, ‘That teacher changed the course of …

8 Facts That’ll Change How You View ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ According To Alyson Hannigan

For everyone who thinks they know everything about “How I Met Your Mother,” prepare to be lawyered.

Alyson Hannigan, otherwise known as Lily Aldrin, has been busy since the show ended a little more than a year ago. She’s had her hands full with being a mom, has a role in a new film called “Modern Love” and she’s even working with Ball Park’s Finest hot dogs, which she did admit, though she “usually” doesn’t try to brag, looked so good after she cooked them over a campfire that they wouldn’t even need a filter on Instagram.

During a short reprieve from her busy schedule, Hannigan took some time to chat with The Huffington Post about some behind-the-scenes stories from “HIMYM.” Prepare yourself: they might change the whole way you look at the show.

1. The cast talked about having an intervention for all of their puns.

Image: Netflix

When asked if the cast had any interventions that didn’t make the show, Hannigan said, “We talked about needing an intervention for ourselves to stop making so many puns. We would just pun for hours and hours and hours. It was great, but we were like, ‘We might have a problem,’ but we enjoyed it.”

The puns all started when a guest star mentioned the magazine Cat Fancy, Hannigan added: “We started having cat puns, and we had an afternoon of punning anything about cats. Fancy that!”

2. Alyson Hannigan’s real kid was fired from the show.



One of Hannigan’s kids was slated to play Lily and Marshall’s second child, but then she got some disappointing news. “They fired my kid from that role. She was gonna be the baby, but [producer] Carter Bays was like, ‘Nope. She’s too old,’ and she got replaced,” Hannigan said.

“I was like, ‘You fired my child. First of all that’s ageism. I don’t think you’re allowed to fire her because she’s too old,'” she joked.

3. The Cockamouse was real.

Image: PopSugar

The Cockamouse was the mysterious hybrid creature that Marshall and Lily found in their apartment, and though it seems like something someone made up, like the “South Park” monster ManBearPig, it turns out this was based on a real story.

“Yes, that is based on a story that happened to [producer] Kourtney Kang in New York in an apartment she lived in,” says Hannigan. She continued, “They were not sure if it was a cockroach or a mouse. And they’re pretty convinced it must’ve been both and it did fly away.”

To that, HuffPost responded, “Are you freaking kidding me?” Hannigan said, “I don’t think it flew out of the window, but it flew.”

4. The cast originally wanted Victoria to be the mom.
himym

“Early on, I wanted Victoria to be the mom,” Hannigan said. “I guess Carter later said had we got canceled she would’ve been the mom. But, you know, somebody great would come on [the show] and we would be like, ‘Yeah, we want her to be the mom,’ so it was sort of just like whoever was on for a long period of time. We’re like, ‘Let her be the mom. Let her.’ We just loved everybody.”

5. Some of the cast knew early on that the mom would die.

Image: Giphy

Actor Josh Radnor was told about the major “HIMYM” finale twist during Season 1 of the show and Hannigan actually found out early as well. They had to film a lot of reactions for Ted Mosby’s kids early in the series that would then air in later seasons, the actress said, and after that some “whisperings” started getting out that the series would end with the mom’s death.

“I knew that was the case,” said Hannigan. “I didn’t know who the mom was going to be, but I did know that the reason he was telling all these stories is because she passed away, which was very sweet.”

6. Producers were worried Alyson Hannigan and Cristin Milioti looked too similar.
180792549

Hannigan says the whole process of finding the right actress to play the mom was “very secretive” and caused some suspicion around set when trailers that would “never be locked” suddenly were. Hannigan says she first met the mother, Cristin Milioti, in a makeup trailer because producers wanted to see how the pair looked side by side.

“They wanted to look at us next to each other to see if they were going change her hair or something because they were a little worried that we looked similar, so I had to go stand next to her and we had some people look at us together,” she said.

7. Alyson Hannigan was the reason Lily never had a musical number.

Image: Giphy

Each of the main cast members on “HIMYM” had a musical number except for Lily — and it turns out there was a good reason for that.

“I begged them not to make me,” said Hannigan. “Yeah, singing has never been something that I wanted to do publicly. It’s actually like a phobia. I know it sounds weird, but it has always been that way. And then I find myself in these shows that want to do musicals, and I’m like, ‘Noooooo!'”

Hannigan says she has gotten better when it comes to singing, but she’s “not gonna be dropping an album anytime soon.”

8. If it was up to Jason Segel, “HIMYM” would have a Hanukkah reunion show.

The actress told HuffPost she’d definitely be into a “HIMYM” reunion and that Jason Segel was actually coming up with some ideas during the finale.

“Jason was pitching some really funny specials, like a Hanukkah special and all these things with Carter. It was quite funny… Carter said we could do eight Hanukkah specials. One for each night. I’d be up for it,” she said.

In the words of Barney Stinson, that sounds pretty legen …

Watch Obama Discuss Climate Change With Naturalist Sir David Attenborough

President Barack Obama is a major fan of Sir David Attenborough, the celebrated British naturalist and TV host who has created and narrated numerous science and nature documentaries for the BBC.

According to The Guardian, Obama invited Attenborough to the White House in May to celebrate Attenborough’s 89th birthday. While there, the two taped an interview, in which Obama turned the tables and interviewed Attenborough, telling him that he grew up watching Attenborough’s programs.

“I’ve been a huge admirer of your work for a very long time,” Obama told Attenborough. “You’ve been a great educator as well as a great naturalist.”

The two discussed climate change, and Obama lamented what he sees as slow progress toward combating the issue.

“We’re not moving as fast as we need to, and part of what I know from watching your programs, and all the great work you’ve done, is that these ecosystems are all interconnected,” Obama said. “If just one country is doing the right thing, but other countries are not, then we’re not going to solve the problem. We’re going to have to have a global solution to this.”

Obama asked Attenborough what he thinks needs to be done in the fight against climate change.

“If we find ways of generating and storing power from renewable resources, we will make the problem with oil and coal disappear because economically, we’ll wish to use these other methods,” Attenborough said. “If we do that, a huge step will be taken in solving the problems of the Earth. I think what’s required is an understanding and a gut feeling that the natural world is part of your inheritance. This is the only planet we’ve got and we’ve got to protect it. And people do feel that, deeply and instinctively, it is after all where you go in moments of celebration and in moments of grief.”

Obama also discussed during the interview how growing up in Hawaii and Indonesia gave him a greater appreciation of the environment.

Attenborough, a Cambridge-educated naturalist, has been creating and hosting science and nature-related programming since 1954. His shows have won numerous awards, and he has become a vocal environmentalist. He is known for his distinctive voice as a narrator.

The Guardian reported that despite his long career, Attenborough had never visited the White House, and he said Obama’s invitation was “a considerable surprise.” The interview will air simultaneously on BBC 1 in the United Kingdom and BBC America in the United States on Sunday.

This is not the first time Obama has turned the tables on a notable television figure he admires. In March, he interviewed David Simon, creator of HBO’s “The Wire,” about criminal justice reform, and told Simon that “The Wire” is his favorite TV show.

Watch a clip of Obama’s interview with Attenborough above.

Malala Yousafzai Tells Jon Stewart ‘Normal Humans Like Us’ Can Bring Change

Jon Stewart had almost no jokes for his audience Thursday night in the wake of Wednesday’s mass shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

Instead, Stewart chose to focus the bulk of his show on the night’s guest, Malala Yousafzai, the 17-year-old Pakistani who won a Nobel Peace Prize for her work advocating for children’s rights and education.

“Our guest tonight is an incredible person who suffered unspeakable violence by extremists and her perseverance and determination through that to continue on is an incredible inspiration,” Stewart said. “And to be quite honest with you, I don’t think there’s anyone else in the world that I would rather talk to tonight.”

She was on the show discussing girls’ education and Davis Guggenheim’s upcoming documentary, “He Named Me Malala,” which is described as an “intimate portrait” of Yousafzai’s extraordinary life.

The teen told Stewart it’s important for regular people to speak up about injustice.

“Sometimes we wait for others, and think that Martin Luther should rise among us, and Nelson Mandela should rise among us and speak up for us,” she said. “But we never realize that there are normal humans like us, and if we step forward, we can also bring change just like them.”

Yousafzai’s life exemplifies that philosophy. She began to gain international attention in 2009, when she wrote a blog for the BBC about living under the influence of the Taliban. She subsequently became an international advocate for girls’ education.

The teen was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in 2012 while riding a bus home from school. A group of men boarded the bus, asked for Yousafzai specifically and shot her in the head. After her recovery, she founded the Malala Fund, a nonprofit dedicated to helping girls worldwide attend school. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014.

Stewart joked that, with the teen looking forward to college applications in the next couple of years, she “might want to work on her resume.”

Infographic: Highlights Of The Pope’s Climate Change Encyclical

The Vatican released Thursday a 184-page papal encyclical by Pope Francis condemning the human behaviors causing climate change and urging global action to combat environmental degradation, marking the first time the Catholic Church has aligned itself with scientists on climate issues. Here are some highlights of the pope’s landmark climate change encyclical:

  • Establishes Catholic Church’s stance on issue 30 years too late
  • Announces new Eucharist composting program to reduce production of holy waste
  • Unveils Church’s effort to reduce energy use by merging Father, Son, Holy Spirit into one deity
  • Lays out Vatican’s plan to lead green initiatives by immediately recycling all records and documents pertaining to child abuse
  • Reveals many of the world’s poor lack access to clean drinking blood of Christ
  • Officially beatifies world’s last remaining black rhinoceros
  • 40-page recyclables sorting guide
  • Vows to immediately discontinue all Vatican-owned fracking operations
  • Something about implications …

News in Brief: Frustrated Republicans Argue Pope Should Leave Science To Scientists Who Deny Climate Change

WASHINGTON—In response to a 184-page papal encyclical that urges immediate action to address the environmental and social consequences of global warming, a coalition of frustrated Republican leaders issued statements Thursday arguing that Pope Francis should leave scientific matters to scientists who deny climate change. “Frankly, it’s not really anyone’s place to make declarations about climate science or global temperature changes unless they’re a scientific expert who has spent years rejecting the concept of climate change,” said former Florida governor Jeb Bush, who added that the pope had neither studied climate science nor ever been among the 3 percent of researchers who stand in opposition to the overwhelmingly dominant position held by the scientific community on climate change, so he had no business speaking on the subject. “Personally, I would never trust anyone as an authority on climate change unless they had done years of research and …

Meet Anastasiya, one of the most adorable little humans we’ve ever seen.

The two-and-a-half-year-old Moscow-based cutie has built quite the Instagram following, most likely due to her baby blue eyes and stylish outfits. The account is run by her mother, Anna Bakhireva, and features photos of the tot in beautiful silk scarves, stylish top knots and teeny tiny sneakers.

While it’s easy to assume that little Anastasiya is a model, she isn’t and she isn’t even that interested in fashion … yet. However, Bakhireva did tell us her daughter’s one weakness: shoes. “She wear[s] Hunters inside the home or her small Uggs in the middle of summer.” Looks like this is a girl after our own hearts.

Check out some of our favorite snaps of Anastasiya below, and tell us you aren’t melting over all the cuteness.

Lesbian ad in India Shows Change Does Not Wait on Courts

The Kashish film festival in Mumbai just completed its sixth edition. It does not call itself a “human rights” film festival or a “diversity” film festival or an “equality for all” film festival. It shuns all euphemisms and calls itself plain and simple the Mumbai International Queer Film Festival. Its website URL is an unabashed mumbaiqueerfest.com.

On the closing night of this year’s Kashish, Mumbai’s beautiful Art Deco Liberty Theater, run by the Hoosein family since 1947, was buzzing. India’s only transgender/hijra dance troupe brought the house down with their sequin-spangled Helen numbers. Former Mr Gay India, Sushant Divgikar was strutting the stage basking in the spotlight. And the entire theatre was on its feet as Rainbow Voices, an LGBT choir from Mumbai, all sleek in black and silver, some of the boys with heavy eyeliner and a flower tucked behind the ear Salma Sultan style, belted out Hum Honge Kaamyaab. It was a bona fide goosebump moment.

But the real eye-opener was the chief guest on the occasion. In a column in Mid-Day, Malavika Sangghvi, one of the festival’s judges, quotes the chief guest as telling the crowd, “To the Kashish family, I would like to say that the road ahead will not be easy. You will meet resistance. But on my part I will assure you that I will stand for you, I will stand with you whether we may succeed or not.”

It might sound like boiler plate cheerleading, de rigueur for such occasions. Except the speaker was Shaina NC, a spokesperson for the ruling BJP party, most often seen on television defending the government’s stance.

All this in a country where homosexual sex has been re-criminalized. And Shaina NC’s own colleague, the Home Minister Rajnath Singh has categorically said his party is against homosexuality because it is an “unnatural act.”

And now again in a country where homosexual sex is technically illegal, an ad for “contemporary ethnic apparel” featuring a lesbian couple has gone viral. There’s nothing coy about the ad. There’s no need to read between the lines. The couple is clearly a couple. There’s even a hint of short-hair long-hair butch-femme in the relationship. There is a casual sleep-tousled intimacy about them, what Vikram Johri correctly describes in Daily O as “everyday lived-in-ness”. They laugh, tease each other, flirt as they go about getting nervously ready for the Big Visit. One set of parents is on their way to the house for the first time. The ad is lovely, billowing curtains and all, hitting all the right notes without shrill sloganeering. And the kurtas are showcased nicely, neatly woven into the narrative. All this comes close on the heels of an international hoopla about India’s first gay matrimonial ad carried by Mid-Day.

What gives?

The Supreme Court proposes, but Indian society (at least the part that reads Mid-Day and likes to shop for trendy orange kurtas) disposes?

What the Supreme Court did not realize when it reinstated Section 377 which criminalized “sex against the order of nature” in 2013, was that the society has come a long way. Like toothpaste it just cannot be pushed back into the tube.

This Anouk ethnic apparel ad is yet another example of that momentum of social change. And it’s not the only one though it’s being incorrectly hailed as the first Indian “lesbian” ad. Hindustan Times wore its “openness” on its sleeve in an ad where a young man whacks his friend with a rolled up newspaper for staring at a gay couple and making fun of them. Vodafone tiptoed into gay territory in an ad which seemed to say it all with sideways glance. Fastrack had its own girl-on-girl ad with a shocking pink changing closet and described itself as “a window into the young progressive mindset of today’s youth. A mindset that isn’t bogged down or defeated by society’s rules.”

What is actually striking about these ads are the comment boards on Youtube. India’s comment boards are hardly a bastion of civility. But by and large the tenor of these comments is “awesome”. One commenter says about the Fastrack ad “3 intolerant homophobes disliking this” while another says “They should make a male version.” The top comment on the HT ad reads “thanks some faith in media restored”. In an age of “presstitutes” that’s high compliment indeed.

These companies want to cash in on the coolness factor and in a way, the retrograde 377 verdict, allows them to appear even more cool. The fact is they do not risk that much. It’s not like heterosexual women will wonder if an Anouk kurta makes them a little too lesbian. And there’s little likelihood that the VHP or the All India Muslim Personal Law Board will launch a BoycottMyntra campaign for uploading the Anouk ad. They are too busy with Yoga Day, beef bans and defending 377 in court. And the internet is a virtual space which makes it safer for such experiments. Unlike a real gallery which can be vandalized and an artist beaten up as openly gay painter Balbir Krishnan found out in 2012.

A company like Anouk deserves all the credit for making an ad like The Visit. Hopefully some version of this will show up on television where its reach will be far wider and its impact far greater. But the real test of courage for corporates remains elsewhere. Will these companies also show the same openness when it comes to their own HR polices? When it comes to non-discrimination among their employees? When it comes to partner benefits? Or at that point will a company point to Section 377, plead helplessness, and put all this “Bold is Beautiful” rhetoric into cold storage?

There is no magic formula for social change. Sometimes it’s led by the courts. The US courts dragged the American South kicking and screaming into desegregation. That was a time where the courts were ahead of much of society. By the time those same courts struck down sodomy laws, society had moved way ahead of the law. No one batted an eyelid. Now the opposition to same-sex marriage in the US is declining steadily. That same tango between society and the law is happening in India. Sometimes one leads and sometimes the other.

And if there’s anything we should read into the Anouk ad it’s this – that just because the court is out of step right now, it does not mean the society won’t keep dancing ahead – one ad, one book, one crowdfunded film festival at a time.

Some day inevitably the father-figures of the court too will catch up. And then like the young woman in the Anouk ad, society will say “Papa, you’ve reached? We’ll just come down.”

5 Strategies for Embracing Change

Few people thrive on change. In fact, most of us find change to be incredibly stressful. However, resisting change never works to our benefit. All of us know couples who have lost years of their lives because they didn’t leave marriages that were effectively over. How many of us have remained in jobs in which we were poorly paid and under-appreciated because the job was comfortable? How many people have secret dreams that they never fulfill because they are overwhelmed by the idea of dramatically changing their lives?

We tend to prefer the known to the unknown. The unknown is scary. So even though life might be better if we make a big change, we don’t focus on the likely positive outcome. We instead obsess over the tiny possibility that we could end up making life a whole lot worse.

But the only way to continually improve yourself and your life is to embrace – or at least not hate – change. To that end, below are some tips to give you the courage to change your life for the better.

1. Know That True Security Comes from Being a Person of Excellence: Very often we resist change because we fear losing either emotional or financial security. But the reality is that no relationship or situation is ever truly secure because we cannot control other people. As a result, marriages can fail, jobs can end, and savings can be lost, despite our best efforts. The only thing we can control is ourselves. So realize that the key to success is to consistently hold yourself to the highest standards. As long as you do your best in all things, from how you fold your laundry to how you perform your job to how you treat your family, change ultimately will work to your benefit.

2. Don’t Listen to Naysayers: Even if you change your life for the better, your friends and family may not support you. Why? People like the security of everyone around them staying the same. For example, a family will say, “Sally is the smart one, Jerry is athletic, and Bob is creative.” Even if Jerry gets his PhD in biochemistry, the whole family will ignore that accomplishment, and instead every Thanksgiving they will talk about how Jerry is a great tennis player. You have to ignore the boxes that people put you in, in order to be brave enough to do new things. Just because your family says you always have been great at math and should be an accountant, that doesn’t mean you don’t have The Great American Novel inside you. Resist the urge to satisfy everyone else’s need to have you stay the same, and be brave enough to change your life – even if no one supports you.

3. Visualize Change in a Positive Way: The fear of making a mistake is what keeps many of us from changing our lives for the better. That fear needs to be replaced with the expectation that change will improve our lives. Visualization is a key to creating this new outlook. For example, perhaps you are in a bad marriage. You want to leave, but the idea of being single is intimidating. Visualize yourself living on your own and being happy and successful. See yourself meeting someone with whom you have a deep connection and who treats you beautifully. That life is possible if you are willing to risk the discomfort of change. Or let’s say you are in a job where you work hard and are underpaid. Taking a new job will be challenging. You will have to prove yourself to a new employer. That is hard and uncomfortable. Visualize yourself being paid what you are worth, doing exciting work and being appreciated for your efforts. When you visualize a positive outcome, it will give you the confidence to move forward.

4. Strategically Plan for Success: When preparing to make a big change, don’t just sit back and hope for the best. Get your ducks in a row. The more advance planning you do, the more sure you will feel when you leave a relationship or job. If you are ending a relationship, decide what you are going to do to make the transition smoother. That may mean picking up a hobby to fill your free time, sorting out your financial situation or lining up support from friends and family. When leaving a job and starting a new one, make sure you build time into your schedule for studying and extra rest. The better a foundation you lay for the future, the more successful you will be after making the change.

5. Don’t Expect Perfection: Even if you make big changes and end up finding the person of your dreams or the ideal job, don’t expect perfection. Life isn’t perfect. Being single may be a whole lot better than being in a bad marriage, but being on your own has its challenges. Similarly, finding a terrific new spouse is a blessing, but no relationship is perfect. A great job can be incredibly rewarding, but any good job has some stress associated with it. The point of making changes in your life isn’t to achieve perfection. The point is to keep growing and to become happier and more fulfilled with every passing year.

Being afraid of change is understandable. But don’t let that fear prevent you from living the life of your dreams. We are meant to grow, improve and yes, change, into our best selves.

9 Things You Can’t Change About Your Partner (So Don’t Even Try)

couple fighting retro

Love can move people to do things they never thought possible: Who among us ever believed they’d find someone worthy of sharing an order of fries? That’s the power of love, people.

As powerful as being in a relationship can be, there are some things that even love can’t change — namely who your partner is at his or her core. Below, experts weigh in with nine things you can’t change about your S.O., as hard as you may try.

1. Her relationship with her family.
You know that saying, “You don’t just marry a person; you marry his or her entire family”? It’s 100 percent true, said Karl Pillemer, a professor of human development at Cornell University and the author of 30 Lessons for Loving: Advice from the Wisest Americans on Love, Relationships, and Marriage

“People’s feelings about their own families are deeply ingrained, and they are not likely to alter significantly after you tie the knot,” Pillemer said. “You can come to compromise, but if your spouse and your family don’t get along, pressing for change is not likely to work. Instead, I’d tell you to give your S.O. a free pass to avoid unnecessary get-togethers. Family togetherness is nice, but not at the expense of your relationship with your partner.”

2. Whether he’s an extrovert or an introvert.

Opposites attract, but only up to a point: Somewhere down the line, you may wish your introverted partner was a little less inclined stay in for yet another night of Netflix — and he very well might wish you’d reign in your social butterfly ways.

“Your partner’s temperament is one thing you really can’t change,” said Samantha Rodman, a licensed psychologist and dating coach. “One great example is whether they are an extrovert, who relaxes by being around others, or an introvert, who relaxes by being alone. People who marry across extrovert/introvert divide will have to accept their partner’s needs for social interaction, or, conversely, for time alone to recharge.”

3. Her hobbies.
When work or family life gets stressful, hobbies and pastimes are what keep us going. Don’t bother trying to change your S.O.’s favorite activities, said relationship coach and writer Chris Armstrong.

“For one thing, your annoyance over their shopping or World of Warcraft love is probably much ado about nothing,” he said. “Individuality is important — we lose ourselves and lose control if hobbies are lost, plus the relationship as a whole can be harmed in the process. As I’ve told a client, if you know that a hobby is a big part of your S.O.’s life but it’s too much of a time-suck in your eyes, you two probably aren’t a good fit.”

4. His anger issues.
Many of us go into relationships believing we can change or fix things we don’t like about our partners. If the the trait in question is your S.O.’s anger issues, holding on to that belief can be downright dangerous.

“Explosive and disproportionate anger is one of the most common reasons people offer up for their marriages going south,” Pillemer said. “It’s an issue that needs to be taken with the utmost seriousness: Beware of a person who has a bad temper, who seems to get angry over nothing and, in particular, a person whose anger seems out of proportion to the situation. This is one personality characteristic that is almost impossible to change.”

5. Her religious beliefs.
While it’s certainly not always the case, having an interfaith relationship when you’re both deeply religious may prove problematic, Rodman said. Much of the time, the problems doesn’t arise until much later in the relationship, when a couple decides to have kids.

“People who were raised going to religious services frequently will often want to resume this practice when they have their own children, even if they didn’t attend services as a younger adult,” she said. “On the flip side, if your partner is an atheist and agnostic, it’s unlikely they’ll become devout believers just by virtue of being with someone with faith.”

6. His need for alone time.

You want to spend every waking moment with him, but he needs his space. You might read the request as hurtful, but consider the silver lining: Time apart often keeps a relationship fresh while ensuring that you both maintain your individuality, said Armstrong.

“When people are always together, they can feel as though the relationship is the only substantive thing going on in their lives,” he explained. “It can cause resentment. People want companionship but they also want meaningful connections and self-reflection to both recharge and keep their relationship fresh. Attempting to change a partner’s desire for alone time is a non-starter.”

7. Her need to plan every last detail.
You meticulously plan every last detail of your life, from when you’re taking your next vacation to when you want to have baby #1. Meanwhile, he’s a take-life-as-it-comes type. The divide may be endearing at first — you complement each other so well! — but eventually, it might become problematic . In any case, you’re not likely to change each other’s way of thinking, said clinical psychologist Jill Weber.

“Usually it is not a case of polar opposites, but rather a difference in degrees,” she said. “Some people are more regulated and are prepared to pay attention to the details of life while others are more likely to go with what they are feeling in the moment. The conflict plays out in a variety of ways — rules for how the children will be raised, spending and saving or even how to spend a weekend. Marriages where people vary strongly in their tolerance for delayed gratification can deteriorate to a condition where all of the energy in the relationship is going to trying to change the other.”

8. His thoughts on having kids.

If someone you’re seeing tells you in a straightforward way their true feelings on having kids, trust them. Moving forward with a relationship in the hopes that they’ll change their mind once you’re married or otherwise committed is a very risky gamble, said Armstrong.

“It’s perfectly reasonable for someone to say, ‘I can see myself having kids with the right partner’ but this is wholly different than someone going from ‘I don’t want kids’ to ‘I want kids,'” he said. “Some people do not want children because of the financial or time commitment required. Others have no desire because they don’t want to be responsible for another human being. Are they going to change? Not likely. Should you want them to? Absolutely not.”

9. Her sense of humor.
Whether or not you both crack up at Louis CK’s potty jokes may seem too minor to make this list, but having a similar sense of humor is more important than you realize.

“Older people I’ve interviewed have told me that some future marital problems can be diagnosed based on the question: ‘Do we think the same things are funny?'” Pillemer said. “Sense of humor is a strong indicator of compatibility. If you laugh at the same things, you are likely to see the world in similar ways. But there’s an even more important reason to take a careful look at your partner’s sense of humor: You will be stuck with it for many, many years. If his idea of high humor involves practical jokes and yours doesn’t, rest assured that you will not find the hand buzzer or the whoopee cushion more hilarious fifty years from now.”

Dressing Better Can Change The Way Your Brain Works

Many modern offices, especially in creative fields, are pretty laissez faire when it comes to the dress code. Jeans and a T-shirt are often considered more appropriate attire than a buttoned-up suit or a dress with heels.

But new research suggests a surprising advantage to dressing up for the workday. Wearing more formal clothing changes the way that people think, helping them to focus on the big picture, according to a study recently published in the journal Social Psychological & Personality Science.

The study, which was conducted by researchers at Columbia University and California State University, Northridge, found that clothing had a significant impact on cognitive processing style. More formal clothing resulted in more abstract cognitive processing.

“Wearing formal clothing leads to more big-picture thinking, rather than concrete thinking that focuses on the details,” study co-author Michael Slepian, a postdoctoral research scholar at Columbia Business School, explained to The Huffington Post.

The researchers asked a group of college-age volunteers of both genders to complete tests designed to determine their cognitive processing style at that moment. Before some of the tests, the volunteers ranked the formality of what they had opted to wear. With other tests, the volunteers were specifically directed to put on “clothing you would wear to class” or “clothing you would wear for a job interview.” Across a series of experiments, those wearing the more formal outfits exhibited broader, more holistic thinking.

Why did changes in clothing lead to changes in how people thought?

“Formal clothing made people feel more powerful, which in turn made them more likely to adopt high-level, abstract thinking,” Slepian said, pointing out that “the suit is a symbol of power.”

He also noted that “formal clothing might improve your mood if you feel good in the clothing and think it looks good.”

Even if you wear a suit to the office five days a week, the study suggests you’re likely to reap these benefits.

The Awkward Black Girl Who Is Going To Change Television

Issa Rae stands strong, arms akimbo, on the jacket of her new memoir, “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl.”

By most measures in entertainment, she is a wonder woman. Nearly 25 million views of her YouTube videos. New York Times best-seller status for her debut book. A greenlit pilot for HBO. She is collaborating with Shonda Rhimes and Instagram’ing with Oprah.

Such feats are not achieved by awkwardness alone. Like the projects she produces, Issa Rae is endearing and quirky and earnestly self-aware.

She is now focused on her most ambitious goal yet: to diversify television from the inside out. She explained her philosophy during an interview with HuffPost Live’s Marc Lamont Hill:

Until you have people in positions of power that have varied experiences, nothing will change. Honestly, we’re not on [television executives’] radar. They don’t know. They’re not really thinking about us. If you have people in positions of power that don’t have very many black friends, that don’t really understand the black experience, they’re not thinking about it and there are not enough people concerned with it… Social media changed the game in that you’re seeing all of these tweets, you’re seeing all these trending topics from…black people who are expressing what they want to see. Now people take notice.

Rae wants television that is authentic and culturally rich. “I think that’s entirely possible. We had an era of it for a while [including Living Single and Fresh Prince], and then we didn’t.” Moreover, she wants to redefine “what’s been painted of mainstream media’s blackness. I don’t fit within that. I’m in this awkward definition of blackness. Black is supposed to be cool, black is sassy, black is trendsetting. I just don’t feel that way. It’s almost limited in a way and I feel like black is so much more than that.”

Her approach to this challenge has changed. She put an end to coaching people who asked her out to lunch wanting to pick her brain. “I’ve stopped taking those meetings, and I’m so happy that I have. It really is draining to just have people extract what they want, and [meanwhile] you’re losing time working on something. And then having someone try to figure out what their path is, and either how you can help them or what they can extract from you to continue on their own path — that’s draining, and it’s kind of unfair.”

The people Rae wanted to help weren’t the ones asking for meetings; they were the ones getting shit done. She recounted her own experiences trying to make it in the industry. “I would rather work and show someone,” Rae told The Huffington Post. “Even asking, let’s go out to coffee, all of that — that’s never been me. I wanted to be sure that I could offer that person something before even asking anything in return.”

Instead, Rae has launched ColorCreative.TV. “CC.TV highlights women and minority writers, and produces their pilots, and gets them an audience, and then packages their content, and showcases them to networks,” she said. “Studio and network executives are taking an interest in content of color. On the surface that’s great, but behind the scenes, they’re still not hiring very many.”

In a Q&A with HuffPost, Rae talked relationships, money, work-life balance, books, faith and more.

I was surprised to hear you say that you felt stagnant last year, like you were “stuck on a treadmill.”

I do get down on myself a lot. There’s just a constant feeling of not having enough time to complete what I want to do, feeling like I’m trying to complete too many things at once, and not well. And just feeling like I won’t be able to do that and feeling miserable. Not feeling fulfilled at the end of the day.

That’s really kind of scary to me, it keeps me up. I’m competitive with myself. I feel like I’m always trying to one-up myself.

Have you ever tried to get off the career “treadmill” for a little while?

I don’t even know what that means though. ‘Cause I feel like no matter what I’m doing, even when I am not being productive, I’m still thinking about work, I’m still thinking about the next steps. Even if I’m binge-watching something, I draw inspiration from that. I’m thinking, wow, it would be really cool if I did this.

Everything is work, is fun, at the same time. But there’s still this burden of: What am I doing next? How am I doing it? Am I going to be able to do it? And am I going to be able to do it well?

People in your line of work need to be self-motivated, self-driven. Have you learned any lessons that help you do that more effectively?

I’ve accepted my procrastination as part of who I am. As such, I do designate days where I allow time for procrastination. Like, I’m not going to do anything, I’m not going to do shit today. This is a wasting-time day, and I allot for hours of just doing nothing, so that the next day I can really focus. I feel now like I’ve nailed my procrastination.

Have you approached friendships or relationships differently as you’ve gained notoriety?

Only recently. I always want to assume the good in people, and then I found that people who were closer to me, who’ve I’ve grown up with, they would warn me, “so-and-so is just with you because they want something out of you.”

Initially, I used to brush it off, like, what am I going to do for that person? But now I’ve been opening my eyes and I do feel like sometimes people see me as their opportunity. And that’s very disheartening.

And then, existing relationships. I’ve seen people, like, I know for a fact you weren’t checking me before, now it’s like… it’s just very odd. It’s obvious.

What’s obvious?

Some people had no interest in talking to me before, having anything to do with me. And now they’ve made a supreme effort to get to know me, to try to get in contact, go out. I’m like, what? What’s changed?

Do you worry about getting too skeptical or untrusting of people?

I stay around the same people. I keep the same friends. I still have the same core group of friends and family, and they never waste any time in humbling me if I ever try to get out of pocket in any way. That’s really important to me. I never want to be famous in any way.

What?

No. I don’t want to be like TMZ famous, where people care. I want to be able to have the same sort of observational humor that I’ve had that people can relate to. I don’t want to be in a situation where no one can relate to what I’m writing, or what I have to say. That’s important to me.

Have you had any recent realizations about living a more fulfilling life?

The more luxurious things I’ve been exposed to, the more I realize: oh, that’s cool, but do I really need it? I know that’s for effect. Even if I had a ton of money, clothes don’t really interest me, cars don’t interest me, showing off doesn’t interest me in any way. Money would be for comfort, or to put towards the future, or to put towards creative endeavors, or collaborations. Everything would just go back into the work, and that’s what excites me.

So money and personal fulfillment are not tied together for you.

Not at all. I’ve just never been really impressed by people with money. Like, even when I was broke — yes, there was an appeal. Like, oh my gosh, they’re going to pay me $ 500, that’s great, I can pay bills. I just want to be comfortable, but I’m not allured by money if it’s not something that I want to do.

If it’s something that I have to suffer doing, or if I have to compromise a certain element of myself, or if I just don’t feel like I’m going to do a good job, there’s really no amount of money — I shouldn’t say that either. [Laughter]

Right now, I’m in a situation where I definitely need money to make a project happen. I feel like that’s different than, ‘oh, I need money to get rich.’ I need money to make projects happen, and that’s interesting to me. But if NBC says, here’s 10 million dollars to do a show that I don’t believe in, there’s no point, because I would be miserable.

I’ve definitely seen a shift in my mentality. I used to think, I want to be a millionaire by the time I’m thirty. Then I realized, well, what would be different? But I guess I’ll never know unless I’m there. Maybe I’ll be eating my words. I get a ton of money, who knows?

Is there a book that’s had a major impact on your life or your intellectual development?

Everyone says this book, so I feel — are you going to guess? Guess. Guess the book. [Laughter] Do people say The Alchemist [by Paulo Coelho]?

That one is a really powerful book. That made me feel like, okay, there’s a purpose here and there’s a path for me. Even if I get derailed, I’m going to come back to that same path. And, so, really, the stress is stupid, because, ultimately, even if you’re out walking the desert, you’ll get that water. It’s going to come. If it’s meant to be, it’s going to be.

Your parents are a big part of your memoir. Is there something positive your parents did that many parents don’t do that made a lasting impact on you?

No television at the table. I used to hate that. We always had to have family dinner, at a specific time, and always had to have conversation at the table. Like, that was it. It was like nothing else is out there.

Then we used to play games at the table. And that’s something I want to do with my kids. We used to have a game called the Don’t Laugh and Smile game, where the entire point was to get people out of the game. We used to have the Quiet game where we couldn’t speak at the table. Whoever had the urge to speak first would be out and we just.. [laughter]. I definitely want to do with my kids. Sense of humor was huge in my family.

Also, in case you didn’t know, @thenightlyshow’s head writer is so fine y’all. Heyyyy @robinthede!

You moved around a lot in your early life.

I was constantly trying to reinvent myself, and try to fit in to established friendships and relationships. Being the new girl kind of sucks. Either eyes are on you, or you’re ignored.

It has definitely caused me to have anxiety about meeting new people now. I’d rather stay siphoned and just not interact. If I had my way, I would just be completely introverted. But the nature of this business I can’t do that.

That hasn’t changed at all, the feeling of being the awkward new kid?

Oh my God, no. You would think that that would be the case, but no. When I have meetings, like, I have the biggest sense of relief when something gets rescheduled or cancelled. And I feel that’s only going to get worse. People expect stuff of you personality-wise, or even entertainment-wise. I feel like I’m always going to be a letdown in that sense ’cause I’m just not that.

The problem is that I need to meet people. Meeting people is great material. I’m not done making friends, I hope. [Laughter] And even just work-related, to collaborate and things like that, which I really love. I can’t be a hermit.

A photo posted by Issa Rae (@issarae) on

Was writing the memoir therapeutic in some sense?

Completely. I love to archive and I like that there’s a sense of history. I love journaling.

What’s your process for journaling?

The first thing I’ll write is thoughts and brainstorm. I have to create a topic, I have to label what it is that I’m going to be writing and then I just free flow. Everything that’s on my mind, I just gush out and it really is super therapeutic. It helps me to clear my mind, it helps to de-stress. I usually start with where I am and how I’m feeling, and then it just goes into what I feel like I need to do, what I want to accomplish. It really, really helps to clear my mind.

Do you go back and read them later?

The satisfaction is just knowing that it’s there, and that it’s documented. Part of is, like, okay, I’ve never talked about this with anyone and it’s been stuck in my head for so long, and I’ve never really even acknowledged it.

It feels good to have that out on paper. It’s like: this is my life and this happened, and this shaped this, and oh, wow, I never noticed that there was a correlation.

You grew up in the church. Do you have any thoughts about faith now?

I constantly go back and forth. I would say I’m spiritual, but not necessarily religious. I’ve seen so much that religion just seems questionable to me. And some of the institutions seem questionable and I’d really like to explore that, and I’d love to talk about that in my work more, in a way that’s hopefully not too offensive. Some people are very sensitive to that, which is understandable.

My mother is very devout. She’s a devout Christian and she would love for me to be in church with her every Sunday. My dad is a Muslim who’s sort of fronting on his practicing now. [Laughter] He’s not really the most devout Muslim. But yeah, I have a lot of faith. I do pray. But I think that that’s based on my church experience as something that’s been extremely questionable.

You’ve had some projects that didn’t work out — the ABC show with Shonda Rhimes, some of your web series — but you’ve kept pushing forward and creating. What have you learned about dealing with setbacks or failures?

You’re not really entitled to anything. I felt like I was extremely frustrated with my second web series, it just felt like we were putting in all the work, we were doing everything right, we were dedicated, it seemed like people were responding well, and it just wasn’t going anywhere. People wanted us to pick a lane, because it was a music and comedy show. I felt like I was entitled to success, and that’s just a ridiculous notion.

And so all I could do was keep creating. I was so focused on that series, trying to push it in people’s faces, that it was kind of stifling my creativity. So I would say, open your mind and try another way. Don’t give up, try another way. Just try to find another way in and explore other ideas. Your first idea isn’t going to be your best idea, necessarily. As corny as it sounds, keep trying.

What did you tell yourself at your lowest point?

I was sitting in bed, not wanting to get out, just feeling extremely depressed, deciding to try to go to grad school, and listen to my parents, and give up. But I realized that I would be even more miserable on that road then trying and failing with something that I really, really wanted to do and that I loved doing.

The One Question You Need To Ask Yourself Before You Can Change Your Life

What’s the story you’ll tell yourself if you don’t create meaningful and lasting change in your life? Be honest. You know your patterns. You know your typical excuses, rationalizations, and justifications for failure. Just look ahead, see which excuses you are most likely going to rely on, and write them down in a story.

Be creative, thorough, and brutally honest about the things you will say to justify your failure. You know you con yourself and let yourself off the hook when the going gets tough. This is a test to see how willing you are to recognize that con job that sabotages you. It is a test to see if you can tell it like it is, or if you want to just live with the same old, tired excuses and be right instead of happy.

So take a moment to argue your limitations, and to create a record of the thoughts and beliefs that you use to sabotage yourself in every endeavor you undertake. Put on paper the thoughts and beliefs you use to prevent yourself from changing your life for the better. The more candid it is, the more self-critical it is, the more valuable it is.

Are any of the following excuses familiar; did some of them get on your list?

– It was just too hard.
– He really doesn’t understand me.
– That’s all for other people.
– I couldn’t focus because of the kids and my job.
– He’s just too harsh; I need a more gentle approach.
– My problems are different.
– I need to read it again.
– Until my spouse reads it, I’m just spinning my wheels.
– I’m right and he’s wrong.

Try something new. You can help yourself immensely if you evaluate your life, behavior, and thinking very differently. Instead of asking whether the way you are living, behaving, and thinking is “right,” ask whether the way you are living, behaving, and thinking, is working or not working.

If what you are choosing is not working, that by itself tells you that those things are worthy of change. This ought to make perfect sense — unless, of course, you’re more concerned about being right than you are concerned with being successful.

If, on the other hand, your priority is winning and getting what you want, then you must be willing to “move your position” on anything and everything that you want to deal with.

You can always go back to your old way of doing things; resolve that if what you are doing is not working, you will be willing to change it. If your marriage isn’t working, change what you’re doing. If your self-management isn’t working, change what you’re doing. If your “child management” is not working, even though you’re dead sure you’re right, change it. What have you got to lose? Forget about being right or winning the argument about who is right. If what you’re doing is not working, change it. Measure your thinking and behavior by that simple yardstick: Is it working or not working? You’ve been right long enough; try being a winner instead.

Agent of Change: Anna Deavere Smith on the 44th Jefferson Lecture and the Search for American Character

2015-04-03-1428101040-9143754-600x418.jpg

Humanities, the arts, words, culture, character, the language that people really speak when they speak to each other — oh, these are creatively deep waters for somebody like Anna Deavere Smith to swim through. The acclaimed actress-playwright-professor, perhaps best known for her television roles — Nancy McNally on The West Wing and Gloria Akalitus on Nurse Jackie — ruminates about all this prior to her appearance as the featured lecturer at The 44th Jefferson Lecture in the Humanties for the National Endowment for the Humanities at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on April 6.

In an outing called, “On The Road: A Search For American Character,” Smith will discuss and perform excerpts from her ongoing and quite fascinating documentary theater project, which, for more than 20 years, has turned heads, generated discussion and garnered praise for the brilliant way it transforms “the words of ordinary people into dramatic monologue.” PBS Newshour’s Jeffrey Brown oversees a Q&A afterward.

Smith’s presence at NEH promises to be illuminating for a number of reasons. It offers an opportunity to look a little more deeply into the role Humanities currently plays in today’s culture, but it also reminds us of Smith’s one-of-a-kind ability to create memorable works that revolve around a number of social issues–from race relations to religion and healthcare.

There’s something remarkable, in fact, experiencing Smith on stage, where she plays many characters who represent various points of view. Her shrewd journalistic skill and ability to evoke the souls of those she has interviewed rises beyond the ordinary theater experience. When, in 2013, Smith received the National Humanities Medal, which was presented to her by President Obama, it was well deserved and may have solidified her role as an Agent of Change among us. She has also garnered the MacArthur Award, The Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize, two Tony nominations, and two Obies. To date, her works, “Fire In Mirror,” “Twilight: Los Angeles 1992” and “Let Me Down Easy”–about healthcare in America–are some of the most nuanced, sobering awakenings of issues only a handful of creatives are capable of capturing with such depth. Her new work, some of which she will perform at the NEH endeavor, traces the school-to-prison pipeline.

Here, Smith opens more about the NEH event, the role of Humanities and much more.

Greg Archer: In NEH’s orbit, there is a focus on the achievements exemplified by Thomas Jefferson. I wanted to begin there and get your thoughts about Jefferson and the organization itself.

Anna Deavere Smith: It’s actually a great question, which I never thought to ask and now I will. I am not a historian, but through some of the research I did on Thomas Jefferson–and I actually performed him in my play “House Arrest,” although I don’t normally perform people I haven’t heard speak–I think Jefferson’s knowledge was vast. I asked one historian who spent her life on Jefferson, and I asked her, “Do you like him?” She said, “Well, if you sat next to him at dinner he would know everything about everything.” And when you look at his interests–he knew everything from wine to slaves. Apparently, when he needed a carpenter, he picked out one who could play the oboe to fill out a particular quartet he was putting together. I don’t know how Jefferson, and so many people of that time, managed to do all the work they did at so many levels–they didn’t have cell phones, computers. And when you think about the Humanities, the idea of Humanities, it is a broad umbrella of knowledge–is this knowledge going to get me a job; is this knowledge going to build me a cabinet? But there’s something about the actual joy of knowing things.

Greg Archer: Verbatim Theater and the importance of character, race, community and identity. This has been a major thrust in what you do. I am curious what lures you to be plugged into that particular socket?

Anna Deavere Smith: I started working like this and thinking like this in the late ’70s based on two things. 1) Something my grandfather said when we were children: “When you say a word often enough, it becomes you.” And 2) Because being trained classically and understanding that in Shakespeare if you say the words, it will take you to a psychological state in a character … Putting those two things together made me very interested in how language works; and how is it that in Shakespeare, that by saying the words you can actually feel like the character? I decided: Why don’t I study real people and study their words and see if I can learn something–what is the certain magic in that? I used to say to my students when I was a very young teacher that everybody sounds different. Nobody sounds like anybody else. Even a playwright writes a full sentence … nobody talks like that. The language on the page is not the language being spoken so I was/am interested in what are the things that we can do the navigate it. I also grew up in a Black church [in Baltimore] where there was great oratory and great music … and seeing the power of what something is beyond “What are the esthetics of a great speaker?”

Greg Archer: You have interviewed many people for your works. What makes a compelling interviewee?

Anna Deavere Smith: First of all, it’s not somebody who has something to say. It’s somebody who wants to say something. That’s the important thing. The theater, the drama, the stage–somewhere I learned this–that in order to be on the stage and be able to command attention you have to have an incredible will to communicate. In my case, I try to make myself an empty vessel for other peoples’ incredible will to communicate. So, Number One, I need an interviewee with an incredible will to communicate; somebody who is going to talk to me; somebody who could go scream it on a mountaintop.

Greg Archer: What do you love most about that process?

Anna Deavere Smith: Now I video the interviews. I never was able to do that, and I like to be in a situation where I can start the interview by saying, “What happened?” Saying, “Tell me more about that.” You know, Wikipedia, where you’re reading along and then there is something underlined and there’s a link? That’s what I think of those moments where I say, “Say more about that.” It’s getting that person to link in and hook me into something that’s probably deeper than what they just said.

Greg Archer: For this event, you will be doing …

Anna Deavere Smith: I’ll start off with Studs Terkel–I’m crazy about Studs. He was somebody who was brilliant in his ability to say something profound in what appears to be very simple. And then I will do one of the people from my play, “Twilight,” and then I will present new material I have been collecting on what I call the School to Prison Pipeline.

Greg Archer: Tell me more about that.

Anna Deavere Smith: There’s become an increased awareness about the number of people who are incarcerated. I’m told that it’s an issue where both Democrats and Republicans actually agree. The National Academy of Sciences came up with a 500-page report with so many questions: Should we be punishing so many people? What does it mean that we incarcerate more people than any other country in the world? Where do they come from? Sadly, some of them are young people who can’t make it through school; can’t sit through class; get expelled. Statistics have shown that these people who get expelled, sometimes for minor infractions, that when that circle starts, it’s not just that that person is incarcerated, it’s that the life and health of the communities are affected.

So, that’s what I have been looking at. I have picked four geographic areas–a lot of interviews in Nothern California, Baltimore, Philly and then I’ll be going to some place in the South. I don’t know where. Hopefully some place I have never heard of and that you have never heard of, to see what’s happening there in this rural community. And again, I’ll be presenting some of this at this lecture before the work is ready. And why is that? Because I want this be a part of a conversation long before it’s a–quote/unquote–finished work of art. Because I think this is something we need to wrap our heads around–we’re losing talent; we’re losing lives and how far can it go? How can we turn it around? That’s not for me to answer. I am not a legislator; I am not an educator. I mean, I teach artists in elite institutions. But I hope in my small way to cause conversation about it and make my way toward people who are making differences.

Greg Archer: Let’s discuss Humanities and the Arts these days. What’s the best thing you see?

Anna Deavere Smith: That’s a good question, and certainly rendered in a very positive way.

Greg Archer: Or, I could ask what are you most concerned about?

Anna Deavere Smith: In one way, everybody is always concerned about the arts dying and they never do. I think there’s good reason to be concerned about Humanities just because Humanities are traditionally dwelled in schools and universities and we’re changing the way we think about ways people need to learn or what we think they need to learn, and what needs to be a craft that needs to be learned, so … [there’s the thought:] why waste time on Shakespeare or Mark Twain for that matter.

I think we are in this moment where we need to think through that. I think Humanities is simply the world of ideas. We’re at a crossroads. All of a sudden there’s this economic matter–how is time best spent to learn what? And the concern about this remarkable technological revolution that you and I find ourselves in that has changed the world forever … and the world in 25 years will be a world we don’t even recognize. And how do we prepare ourselves? We are under a kind of pressure about what education should be; what human cognition should be. And I think the one thing Humanities can do is to help us always be there and talk about what does it means. That’s what Humanities is there for–to help us understand: What are we doing? I’ve heard more than one person say to me lately, “What’s going on? What’s going on … with all this technology? Do they know everything about us?” Or, “Wow, look at how they decide how many people are going to work at Walgreens? Wow, we don’t understand.” I think we’ll always need that old, crusty Humanties as a kind of Wise Man in this journey to find that meaning.

8 Facts That’ll Change How You View ‘The Breakfast Club,’ According To The Cast

In the same way that people are more than just a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess or a criminal, “The Breakfast Club” is more than just a movie. Released 30 years ago last month, John Hughes’ classic film transcends generations and continues to reach new fans today. In fact, because of its popularity, it was recently rereleased in theaters and given a newly restored DVD and BluRay, providing the cast with an opportunity to reminisce about their time on set.

Though the movie has been around almost a third of a century now, there are still a lot of things about it that fans don’t know. In honor of “The Breakfast Club’s” 30th anniversary, HuffPost Entertainment talked to cast members Ally Sheedy, aka Allison Reynolds, and John Kapelos, aka janitor Carl Reed, about behind-the-scenes moments and stories that have never quite been told in full detail.

She’s the basket case, he’s the eyes and ears of the institution, and these are eight facts you might not know:

1. Judd Nelson wasn’t almost fired JUST for picking on Molly Ringwald. He also couldn’t stay in the shots.

By now you may have heard that Nelson, who played the volatile John Bender, was nearly let go from the film. Though his picking on Ringwald was a large part of that, Sheedy explained to HuffPost Entertainment that there was more to the story.

“Judd kind of does this very free-ranging thing with his body. You can see it in the movie,” said Sheedy. “He’s not great at hitting marks, and he wanted to move around and stuff, and I think they were having trouble keeping him in shot.”

The story goes that the cast went to Hughes and pleaded with him to keep Nelson on the project. They also talked to Nelson about how he could help himself out. “If I remember correctly, we all talked to him. The four of us. And I think my thing about it was just focus, just focus, just focus,” said Sheedy.

2. The topless scene wasn’t the only scandalous moment removed. There was also a risque scene involving “MILFs.”

Sheedy confirmed that a topless scene involving a swimming teacher was cut out of the film, saying: “I think John [Hughes] didn’t want to have it in the movie. I think he thought it didn’t really work for him.”

Kapelos later added to the story, telling HuffPost that there was more to the scandalous moment. “I think there was also a scene with a bunch of MILFs or middle-aged cougar women who were doing an aerobics class in the gym and were really letting it go. I think there was a lascivious moment there,” he said. “But you know… it’s like putting a bow on an elephant. It just doesn’t belong there.”

3. Rick Moranis, who was originally cast as the janitor, didn’t just play the part as a Russian. He was also doing something suggestive with his keys.

Moranis, who’d appeared in “Ghostbusters” the year before, was originally cast to play the janitor in “The Breakfast Club,” and Sheedy even says she was “a little star struck” by him while filming. Things didn’t work out, of course, and Moranis was soon replaced by Kapelos.

According to the script, the janitor is meant to be a former student of the high school, as indicated by his picture in the case at the beginning of the film. But when it came to Moranis’ portrayal, Kapelos said the actor and producers didn’t have “a meeting of the creative minds at that moment.”

“From what I was told,” said Kapelos, “he wanted to play the character as a Russian with gold teeth and keys between his legs, playing with it provocatively… and so it’s like, it wasn’t organic, I guess is putting it politely and correctly.”

4. No, Ally Sheedy did not really use her dandruff as an art project.

Though it’s reported that many scenes in the film were improvised, the scene where Allison Reynolds draws in the library isn’t one of them.

Sheedy explains the scene was always in the film, and though she doesn’t know who actually drew the picture, she did set the record straight on one detail. The actress explained that dandruff she scratched out of her hair wasn’t actually dandruff or even Parmesan cheese as previously thought. “I think it was potato flakes of some kind,” Sheedy said.

5. There’s a dark answer to Judd Nelson’s question, “How does one become a janitor?”


Image: Giphy

A memorable moment happens when John Bender asks Kapelos’ character “how one becomes a janitor.” Though it’s clear Bender is just doing it to irk him, it turns out there was an answer to the question after all.

“Really? You want to know?” laughed Kapelos when HuffPost Entertainment repeated Bender’s question. The actor then went into his character’s dark history, saying: “You have to have your heart broken by your teenage sweetheart in your third year of university when you’re doing a great football scholarship. Drop out. Lose her heart. Lose her affection. Make sure her father hates you even more and will never include you in his future plans. Even if you try to make up to her. And then you get a job at your old high school as a janitor, and you try to lick your wounds. That’s how you become a janitor. That’s Carl’s pathetic backstory.”

6. A cut scene shows that Allison wasn’t smoking pot with the others because she was actually off somewhere singing.

A variety of scenes from the movie were cut from the final film, and Sheedy recalled one that was a big moment for her character.

“John [Hughes] let me shoot something with Allison alone in the audiovisual tiny room, singing a capella,” she told HuffPost. “That was something I just came up with. Singing a little song to herself. And that was, for me, the emotional transition that was when they were smoking pot.”

“She sang the song to herself and then she walked out of the room and just joined the group,” Sheedy went on. “So that wasn’t in the script, and he actually let me shoot it. He shot it twice, and then afterwards said that everybody sort of thought it was a little bit too weird.”

7. Principal Vernon’s anger was totally real.

Hughes allowed a lot of improvisation in the movie, and one moment that made it into the film was the conversation between Carl and Paul Gleason’s character, Principal Richard Vernon, after the janitor catches Vernon going through confidential files.

“John Hughes just told me before the take, ‘Cut him off and ask him for 50 bucks.’ So I did,” said Kapelos. “And if you see the movie again, take a look at Paul’s reaction, because it’s real. He was really [ticked off]. And after John Hughes yelled ‘cut,’ it got a little funky for a bit. He was like, ‘Really?’ He got annoyed. We got the take on that one.”

8. Kapelos told Emilio Estevez that if he’d been present for Martin Sheen’s 1977 heart attack, he would have just let it happen… not knowing that Sheen was Estevez’s father.

Though he explained that no one has really told the story correctly, Kapelos says that one day on set he did call out Estevez and Nelson for goofing off while he was shooting a scene. He told HuffPost: “I’m on a movie set, and I’m scared, you know, shitless. I want to do well. They’re trying to make me crack up. They’re goofing off.”

To get Estevez and Nelson to stop, Kapelos told them: “You guys would’ve been great if you were on the set of ‘Apocalypse Now’ with Martin Sheen, and he goes in front of you and starts having his heart attack, and you’re not believing he’s in trouble, and he’s just wincing and moaning in pain and ripping at his chest and you guys would just sit there and let him have his heart attack, right?”

“In other words,” Kapelos told HuffPost, “I was saying, ‘Hey, I’m up here struggling. I’m in pain, and you guys are just letting me wither on the vine.'”

That’s not how Estevez took it, though. “All of a sudden Emilio’s face goes white. Like, I’m telling you, expressionless and white. And everybody’s looking at me like I just shot the pope.” Hughes told Kapelos that Estevez was Sheen’s son, and though Kapelos was “flummoxed” and apologetic, it was too late. Estevez never accepted an apology. “The garage door was going down,” said Kapelos. “That’s all Emilio wrote.”

Bonus trivia: Ally Sheedy doesn’t actually eat breakfast.


Image: Giphy

She’s a member of “The Breakfast Club,” but Sheedy says breakfast isn’t actually her thing. “I never, ever eat it. Ever,” she told HuffPost. “I really just like to get that caffeine going in the morning and just have that buzz as long as possible.”

Happy anniversary, “Breakfast Club.” Here’s to another 30 years!

Should You Change Your Name After Marriage? The Woman’s Surname Quandary

Is it necessary for me to have a last name? Why can’t I act like a rockstar too, and just be called by my first name — Nell?

I was born Nell Kathleen McCarthy. I hated my first name growing up. No one was named Nell, except cows and Nellie Olson from Little House on the Prairie.

It was hard to be cute in high school and college with an old-fashioned name like Nell. But after college, it worked on a blue-eyed wonder, with a soft smile and a mind full of romantic ideas.

I married him, eight months later. I was just 26.  

After much polling of other newly married friends, I nodded to tradition and changed my name, sort of. I decided to drop Kathleen, a middle name I loved, and replace it with McCarthy, and take his last name, Gibbon. I officially became Nell McCarthy Gibbon.

This logical and common choice never worked out well for me. People were always hyphenating it to Nell McCarthy-Gibbon. When it happened in the maternity ward, after my first son was born, I knew I needed to fix it… again.

So, one afternoon with a toddler in tow, I went back to the Social Security office and changed my name a second time. I thought, without question, for the last time. I picked Nell Kathleen Gibbon. I let go of my Irish surname and went from under my father’s wing to my husband’s out-stretched hand. I was building a new family, right?

But something gnawed at me, as I signed the paperwork while my son drew on himself with a pen stolen from my purse. I was pushing something I wanted down, deep inside, into that place where so many things women want get pushed and left to die. Writer Elizabeth Gilbert likens this to a New England cemetery in our souls.
  
The historical weight of the choice wasn’t lost on me. 

I had succumbed to a naming tradition called Coverture which dates back to medieval England, that effectively enslaved women for thousands of years. And I did so, despite all the feminist history I studied in college and graduate school (I knew that in several U.S. states up until the 1970s, married women weren’t allowed to open up their own bank accounts or apply for loans).   
Interestingly, a feme sole, a single woman, had legal rights in medieval England, but upon marriage, a woman became a feme covert. A feme covert had no rights to legal property as she was theoretically her husband’s property, “covered” by him; made invisible under the eyes of the law. So once a woman signed away her surname, she signed away her human rights as well.

Giving up my name felt akin to giving up a room of my own, something Virginia Woolf had taught me not to do. But my sense of tradition and my need to please turned on Virginia Woolf that day. I walked out as Nell Kathleen Gibbon.

And I lived that way, under my husband’s family name, until a year ago. After 12 years of marriage, and two more children, my husband and I separated and filed for divorce. 

I was shocked when my lawyer, very early on in the divorce process asked, “What do you want your last name to be?” Of all the things I was dealing with in the divorce, my last name was the last thing on the list. “Keep it Gibbon,” I replied. “I’ll figure it out later.”
 
Later came on the day of my divorce. I retained the name Gibbon and laughed for the first time in a long time when the judge told me I wasn’t allowed to marry again for 90 days. “Who would do such a thing?” I asked. “You’d be surprised,” the judge replied. 

Little did I know, just weeks later, at a candlelit restaurant that smelled like Christmas, a distinguished and handsome man would introduce himself to me: “I’m Drew Hall.” I was knocked off balance and instantly thought, ‘Could I possibly, no never, fall in love again?’

Fast forward a year. I’m happily engaged and even more confused about ‘the problem’ that has become my last name. With no immediate plans to marry, do I simply stay a Gibbon? I will admit, I’ve doodled the name Nell Hall on scraps of paper like a 16 year old girl, but can a woman change her name to her fiancé’s name without being married? What would be the social ramifications? And what if we don’t work out in the end?  

I’ve contemplated changing my name back to McCarthy, but to return to my maiden name would be a return to my childhood which feels like going backwards. I’m not doing that. I am moving forward in my new life now.

I’ve also contemplated choosing a last name as if I was picking out a new dress from the racks at Bloomingdales. I’ve joked at dinner parties, “I think I’ll just call myself Nell Smith.”

Inevitably, at those dinner parties someone will ask, “Don’t you want to have the same last name as your children?” That question always takes my breath away. Would it devalue me as their mother? 

In divorce, a woman has to give up so many things she never would have imagined. She has to give up, at least part of the time, the most unimaginable thing of all for a mother — her children.  So what’s giving up a name, on top of all that pain? If I clung to every part of my children in this divorce, I wouldn’t thrive. No, I wouldn’t survive. Divorce, for women, is about learning the art of letting go and the skill of reinvention.  

Madonna, Pink, McLovin and… me. The jury is still out on this girl — Nell.

Could You Be Racist And Not Know It? 10 Ways To Change For The Better

Just because you cringed in disbelief and outrage when you watched the viral clip that recently made headlines of a racially offensive chant by some of the SAE fraternity members at University of Oklahoma doesn’t mean you don’t have work to do when it comes to race. According to Dr. Charles Gallagher, a professor and chair of the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice at La Salle University, we’re all a little racist. Is it possible you draw on racist stereotypes to shape your views? Gallagher, who recently faced off with David Wayne Hull, an Imperial Wizard of the White Knights of the KKK, on a heated episode of Dr. Phil suggests you answer these questions to determine how you define race, and if you might draw on racist stereotypes to shape your views:

1. If an Asian person walks into a classroom, do you believe he or she is good in math?
2. When you see two to three black men walking down toward you at night with hoodies on, do you cross the street? Or think about going in another direction?
3. Do you believe that most of the Latinos who live in California are undocumented?
4. Do you believe that populations such as Jewish, Latino, Asian, or black are over 30 percent in the U.S.?
5. Do you believe whites are the minority in America?

Do you still question whether racism and prejudice play a part in your life? Further explore it here.

If either of these tests has given you concern about your use of racial stereotypes, Gallagher — who’s currently writing a book called Colorblind Nation: The Denial of Race and The Rise of Racial Inequality — suggests you might want to consider these tips for improving your attitude about those who may be different from you.

1. Talk to your family: Think about the history of your privilege. What advantages have you been afforded because of your race? Look into your past and see where you come from and the role it plays in your personal success today.

2. Avoid stereotypical language: Be mindful that words and phrases that a person uses to describe a group can easily fall into being a stereotype. When you hear someone say, “All black people do …,” or “Latinos always …,” or “I never met an Asian person who …,” that should raise a red flag. Ask the person if he/she is referring to an individual or speaking for the 40 million Latinos, 10 million Asians, or 38 million black people in this country. Does he/she really believe every person in these groups shares the same behaviors and beliefs?

3. Don’t tolerate racist jokes: Racism isn’t funny. If you listen, you’ll see how people around you really talk about race. We filter out the people we love and give them a pass. Don’t give them a pass.

4. Be introspective: Be honest about your own biases and where they come from. Overcoming racist attitudes in a society starts with you.

5. Vote: Young people historically don’t vote. Be engaged politically, educate yourself on the issues and a candidate’s rhetoric before you give him/her your support.

6. Don’t let the media dictate to you: TV writers have a huge rolodex of stereotypical and hyperbolic characters. It’s lazy. They roll out the “Latino domestic” or the “all-wise black woman,” and the viewer fills in the rest.

7. Learn your family’s history: The only way not to repeat the past is to learn from it. What may have been normative for your grandparents may be different from today or much the same. Eighty percent of blacks are mixed race, and that’s true for many whites as well. Knowing the history helps to shape the future.

8. Teach through example: As Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” You can set a positive example or be the role model of more accepting behavior.

9. Step out of your comfort zone: Take yourself into communities you don’t normally visit. Walking in another’s shoes is the best way to understand someone different from you. Try new food, listen to new music, try a new place of worship, shop at a new produce store; anything you can do to branch out and learn about different cultures.

10. Know thyself: Ask yourself these questions: Are your friends a diverse mix of people, or do you stick with your own kind? If you’re in the racial minority, how does that make you feel? Take some time to have a conversation about these questions with people around you, and learn what their views are.

Bill Nye Says ‘Give A F**k’ About Climate Change Instead Of Deflategate

Bill Nye is weighing in on Deflategate again, but this time he has a few props and a message to share about something far more important.

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick claimed atmospheric conditions and temperature changes could have caused footballs to lose air pressure during the team’s AFC Championship win over the Indianapolis Colts.

On Sunday, Nye said taking that much air out of a ball would require an inflation needle. But in a new video posted on Funny or Die, The Science Guy declared that “one test is worth 1,000 expert opinions,” and put some footballs into a fridge set to 51 degrees, or the temperature at the Jan. 18 game.

That’s where the video takes a very different turn.

“While we’re all obsessed with Deflategate, let’s keep in mind that there’s something about which you should give a fuck,” Nye said. “Yes, like Tom Brady, the world is getting hotter and hotter, and you know why? Because we humans are pumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.”

Nye then began listing things that contribute to climate change — including long-winded Deflategate press conferences — and followed that up with a rallying cry.

“You should vote for congressmen and senators that appreciate the threat of climate change and the rate at which the world is getting warmer, so that we can preserve the earth for humankind for generations to come,” Nye said.

Oh, and about those balls…

Nye took one out of the fridge, gave it a squeeze, pronounced it “pretty much the same,” and said “the Patriots probably bent the rules a little bit.”

Nye, who lived in Seattle for a number of years, ended the video with a message that’s bound to rankle the New England faithful: “Go Seahawks!”

Glimpses of Life in Contemporary Cuba, a Country Now on the Brink of Profound Change

President Obama’s historic promise to reopen full diplomatic relations with Cuba will bring sweeping change to the small island country, which is located only 90 miles off the coast of Florida but has been off limits to most Americans since the 1959 revolution. Despite its proximity to the United States, Cuba is culturally very far away, and photographic representations of it often tend toward the sentimental, portraying it as a place that is stuck in the past. For glimpses of contemporary life in Cuba today—now on the brink of profound transformation—we turned to Instagram. Here is what we found.

Let's change "Me" to "Us"…

About Me

Friends and those who know me very well describe me as a bubbly, honest, loyal and a focus person. They also tell me that I know what I want in life and therefore, would go the extra mile to get it, so long I am not hurting others, myself or putting others at risk.
However, besides all the good things, I do get told by my colleagues that, I can be a bit of a risk take, which can be bad at time and teach me some hard lessons. Some mistakes in life, I do regret but appreciate as well, as I believe that only the smart ones can learn and move on.

I love cooking, walking, travelling and learning about or discovering new cultures. Even though, I like to be on the go most times, I also do enjoy a lazy day ( pampering ), where I just stay indoors, eat and have entertainment, example watch movies or TV – my favorite is documentary.

Read more about me

What I’m Looking For

I am hoping to meet a potential soul mate with a good heart. Someone who is honest, loyal, focus and fun to be with. A clean man is a big turn-on for me. A turn-off will not be the opposite because I believe that sometimes, a guy needs the support of a good woman to help him shine or take pride in his appearance. My turn -off is an argumentative guy, who will not listen and thinks that he's always right! To me, that is a sign of aggression.
I am not going to compare anyone to an Ex because, I do believe in giving people the benefit of the doubt, as everyone is different in their own way.

A guy who wants a relationship to potentially settling down and start a family would be very appealing, as I love the whole family-life thing. Family is close to my heart. I don't mind if he has children or not.
