Without Warning


Rush hour on the underground and a killer is at large in London, striking apparently haphazardly in a series of vicious attacks. Andy Brewster, ex-SAS, on sick leave from active service in Iraq, works undercover for the Metropolitan police with his bomb expert partner, Burgess. Together they must find the killer before he strikes again. So far the victims have all been women with no apparent connection. Beth Hardy, former caterer who now runs a gourmet food shop; her daughter Imogen, dancing at the National; sad Celeste with her terrible secret; widowed Margaret, in to shop; and American tourist, Ellie, stranded there alone. Each of them regularly travels by tube not knowing they could be potential victims. When the July 7 bombs go off and public awareness is raised, Brewster and Burgess have a race against time to apprehend the stalker. But danger comes not just from knives and bombs. Murder is deadlier when the heart is involved.

Save America through a Compromise of 2016

2016-12-10-1481391243-8892085-StopPutinTrump.jpg

My proposal published here on Wednesday, “Hillary Can Be a Hero By Saving America from Trump,” calling for a “Compromise of 2016” that would include the Electors choosing someone other than Donald Trump as the next president and the creation of a “National Unity Government” has received far more positive attention than any other piece I have ever written on HuffPo.

The confirmation that the CIA has determined that it is “quite clear” that Russian intervention in the American presidential election had the goal of electing Donald Trump makes the achievement of such a grand compromise even more imperative.

In July, cartoonist Marc Murphy of the Louisville Courier-Journal perfectly captured the horror that we now face:

2016-12-10-1481392723-7788447-TrumpPutinRussiandoll.jpg

And now Mr. Trump has chosen Exxon Mobil Corp CEO Officer Rex Tillerson, who has strong ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, as Secretary of State! Trump had previously picked Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who is also close to Putin, to be his National Security Advisor. And Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager, who is under FBI investigation for his ties to Putin, is back giving counsel to Trump.

2016-12-10-1481395052-4213478-TillersonPutin.jpg

Where Is the Outrage?

Trump is setting up a Government “Over the American People, By the Russians, and For the Russian and American Oligarchs.”

Where is the outrage? Where are the patriots? Where are Republicans? Where, for that matter, are most of the Democrats? Where are the voices of the media? This is our country, for God’s sake! Stand up and stop them before it’s too late!

The stealing of an election through actions by a hostile foreign power is both the greatest scandal in American history and precisely the sort of evil that the Framers of the United States Constitution sought to block through the Electoral College. In The Federalist No. 68, Alexander Hamilton foresaw the danger to the Republic that could come from someone like Vladimir Putin, warning of “the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.” “How,” Hamilton asked rhetorically, “could they better gratify this, than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union?” The Electoral College was meant to be a safeguard against such foreign treachery.

Surely, Hamilton and other Framers believed, the Electors would have the wisdom and the patriotism to block a man backed by a hostile foreign power from becoming President of the United States.

The question to be determined over the next nine days is whether the 2016 Electors will have the wisdom and patriotism the Founders assumed they would and save America in the time of our nation’s gravest crisis since the Civil War.

Under the circumstances now, I think it would be unwise for Hillary Clinton yet to make the sort of call on Democratic Electors that I suggested a few days ago. Instead, she and other leading Democrats should work out a proposed Compromise of 2016 and call upon leading Republicans to redeem the souls that most of them have sold to the devil-horned man who appeared on the cover of Time by divorcing themselves from Trump and Putin and coming up with their version of an acceptable compromise Government of National Unity.

After each side comes up with a proposal, leaders from each group can enter negotiations to reach an agreement acceptable to both by next weekend that can be announced before December 19, with a call on Electors from both parties to support the chosen candidates. In light both of her large margin of victory in the actual vote and of the Russian intervention against her, it is entirely reasonable that the president chosen in these negotiations should by Hillary Clinton, with a Republican Vice President. Only if acceptance of that outcome proves impossible to achieve should Mrs. Clinton agree to step aside and call for the Electors from both parties to join together in choosing a ticket of sane people not under the influence of Mr. Putin.

Let us update Thomas Paine’s immortal words from the year of our country’s birth: “THESE are the times that try a nation’s soul. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he and she that stand by it now, deserve the love and thanks of man and woman.”

13 Cognitive Biases That Really Screw Things Up For You

2016-12-01-1480620871-9215537-CognitiveBiasesThatReallyScrewThingsUpForYouHP

The human brain is a natural wonder. It produces more than 50,000 thoughts each day and 100,000 chemical reactions each second. With this amount of processing power, you would think our judgment would be highly accurate, but that’s far from the case.

Our judgments are often inaccurate because the brain relies on cognitive biases over hard evidence. Cognitive bias is the tendency to make irrational judgments in consistent patterns.

Researchers have found that cognitive bias wreaks havoc by forcing people to make poor, irrational judgments:

  • A Queensland University study found that blonde women earned, on average, 7% higher salaries than redheads and brunettes.
  • A Duke study found that people with “mature” faces experienced more career success than those with “baby” faces. “Baby” faces were defined as those with small chins, wider cheeks, and bigger eyes. “Mature” faces were those with bigger chins, narrower facial features, and smaller eyes.
  • A Yale study found that female scientists were not only more likely to hire male scientists but they also paid them4,000 more than female scientists.

It’s highly unlikely that the people in these studies actually wanted to pay blondes more money, enable people with mature faces to succeed at the expense of those with baby faces, or hire male scientists disproportionally and pay them more money. Our unconscious biases are often so strong that they lead us to act in ways that are inconsistent with reason as well as our values and beliefs.

Let’s explore some of the most common types of cognitive biases that entrench themselves in our lives. Awareness is the best way to beat these biases, so pay careful attention to how they influence you.

1. The decoy effect. This occurs when someone believes they have two options, but you present a third option to make the second one feel more palatable. For example, you visit a car lot to consider two cars, one listed for $ 30,000 and the other for $ 40,000. At first, the $ 40,000 car seems expensive, so the salesman shows you a $ 65,000 car. Suddenly, the $ 40,000 car seems reasonable by comparison. This salesman is preying on your decoy bias–the decoy being the $ 65,000 car that he knows you won’t buy.

2. Affect heuristic. Affect heuristic is the human tendency to base our decisions on our emotions. For example, take a study conducted at Shukutoku University, Japan. Participants judged a disease that killed 1,286 people out of every 10,000 as being more dangerous than one that was 24.14% fatal (despite this representing twice as many deaths). People reacted emotionally to the image of 1,286 people dying, whereas the percentage didn’t arouse the same mental imagery and emotions.

3. Fundamental attribution error. This is the tendency to attribute situational behavior to a person’s fixed personality. For example, people often attribute poor work performance to laziness when there are so many other possible explanations. It could be the individual in question is receiving projects they aren’t passionate about, their rocky home life is carrying over to their work life, or they’re burnt out.

4. The ideometer effect.
This refers to the fact that our thoughts can make us feel real emotions. This is why actors envision terrible scenarios, such as the death of a loved one, in order to make themselves cry on cue and activities such as cataloging what you’re grateful for can have such a profound, positive impact on your wellbeing.

5. Confirmation bias. Confirmation bias is the tendency to seek out information that supports our pre-existing beliefs. In other words, we form an opinion first and then seek out evidence to back it up, rather than basing our opinions on facts.

6. Conservatism bias. This bias leads people to believe that pre-existing information takes precedence over new information. Don’t be quick to reject something just because it’s radical or different. Great ideas usually are.

7. The ostrich effect.
The ostrich effect is aptly named after the fact that ostriches, when scared, literally bury their heads in the ground. This effect describes our tendency to hide from impending problems. We may not physically bury our heads in the ground, but we might as well. For example, if your company is experiencing layoffs, you’re having relationship issues, or you receive negative feedback, it’s common to attempt to push all these problems away, rather than to face them head on. This doesn’t work and simply delays the inevitable.

8. Reactance. Reactance is our tendency to react to rules and regulations by exercising our freedom. A prevalent example of this is children with overbearing parents. Tell a teenager to do what you say because you told them so, and they’re very likely to start breaking your rules. Similarly, employees who feel mistreated or “Big Brothered” by their employers are more likely to take longer breaks, extra sick days, or even steal from their company.

9. The halo effect. The halo effect occurs when someone creates a strong first impression and that impression sticks. This is extremely noticeable in grading. For example, often teachers grade a student’s first paper, and if it’s good, are prone to continue giving them high marks on future papers even if their performance doesn’t warrant it. The same thing happens at work and in personal relationships.

10. The horn effect.
This effect is the exact opposite of the halo effect. When you perform poorly at first, you can easily get pegged as a low-performer even if you work hard enough to disprove that notion.

11. Planning fallacy. Planning fallacy is the tendency to think that we can do things more quickly than we actually can. For procrastinators, this leads to incomplete work, and this makes type-As overpromise and underdeliver.

12. The bandwagon effect. The bandwagon effect is the tendency to do what everyone else is doing. This creates a kind of groupthink, where people run with the first idea that’s put onto the table instead of exploring a variety of options. The bandwagon effect illustrates how we like to make decisions based on what feels good (doing what everyone else is doing), even if they’re poor alternatives.

13. Bias blind spot.
If you begin to feel that you’ve mastered your biases, keep in mind that you’re most likely experiencing the bias blind spot. This is the tendency to see biases in other people but not in yourself.

Bringing It All Together

Recognizing and understanding bias is invaluable because it enables you to think more objectively and to interact more effectively with other people.

Which of these biases have you experienced? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

Students Create Brilliant Extension That Identifies Fake News

As the influence of fake news on the recent presidential election continues to be a hot topic, one group of students may have found a solution to getting duped by inaccurate sources. 

A team of four graduate and undergrad students recently created “FiB,” a Google Chrome extension that verifies the authenticity of posts on Facebook to combat the circulation of fake news. What’s more, the group created the prototype in under 36 hours at a hackathon last month at Princeton University in New Jersey. 

The tool is currently unavailable for public use, but Anant Goel, a freshman at Purdue University who’s involved in the project, told The Huffington Post in an email that the team plans to officially release it during the first week of January. 

“We wanted to create a proof of concept that the issue of fake news in social media can be tackled at a large scale,” Goel told NBC News of the project. 

The FiB extension helps users separate the real from the fake through its two verification models, Goel explained to HuffPost. It first gives the source of the news, link or image a confidence score based on the source’s past credibility, he said. The extension also takes a step further by looking at the content, extracting keywords, and getting a summary of the article. 

“We perform multiple searches on keywords and summaries. Depending on the results of these searches we give it another confidence score,” Goel explained, adding that depending on if the scores pass a certain threshold, they’re marked either “verified” or “unverified.” 

Following the election, companies like Facebook and Google came under fire when the propagation of fake news, which was hosted on the platforms, was said to have had a hand in swinging the decision in Donald Trump’s favor. Some fake news stories, like one claiming that Denzel Washington had supported Trump, even went viral and began to trend on the social media site. 

While both companies said they’d take steps to mitigate the spread of false news, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has insisted that his site did not have a role in influencing the election’s outcome. However, a Buzzfeed News analysis discovered that the top fake news stories from hoax websites and hyperpartisan blogs outperformed the top news stories from major news outlets on Facebook.  

The extension, which is now an open source project so that other developers can help perfect it, has been released before. It drew in almost 50,000 user requests per second at one point, though it was designed to service 1,000 users. The team took it down to make the tool more efficient for a higher volume of users, according to NBC News. 

The group’s admirable work hasn’t gone unnoticed and at the hackathon. They received the Best Moonshot award from Google ― a distinction that honors the most ambitious project, NBC News reported. 

Bravo, team!

Bolton Says Trump Moves Could Signal A Tougher China Line

One of Donald Trump’s possible picks for secretary of state said on Friday that the president-elect’s criticisms of China and phone call with Taiwan’s president could signal a “different” relationship with Beijing and a tougher line on issues from trade to the South China Sea.

In a speech on Thursday in Iowa, Trump said the United States needed to improve its relationship with China, which he criticized for its economic policies and failure to rein in North Korea.

“That and the call to Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen that was arranged a week ago, I think, certainly lay the foundation for a different relationship (with China),” John Bolton, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush, told Fox Business.

Bolton, a hawkish conservative seen as being among the contenders to be Trump’s secretary of state, said Trump expected countries to live up to commitments they have made on issues such as trade.

“The Chinese have not just been doing that,” Bolton said, while also highlighting what he said were China’s political and military steps “to make the South China Sea into a Chinese province.”

Asked if he thought Trump’s remarks were a statement of intent and an opening negotiating position, Bolton said, “I think that’s at least what it is, and it may be more than that as well. You could use the Taiwan relationship to play off against their performance in the South China Sea.

“I think it was very important that he mentioned what I’ve seen for the past 15 years, which is that China says they’re being helpful with the North Korean nuclear weapons program, when in fact they’ve done precious little,” he said.

In an opinion article last January in The Wall Street Journal, Bolton proposed using degrees of escalation on Taiwan that could start with receiving Taiwanese diplomats officially at the State Department and lead to restoring full diplomatic recognition, to pressure China to step back from its pursuit of territory in East Asia.

Experts saw Trump’s call with Tsai on Dec. 4 – the first by a U.S. president-elect or president with a Taiwanese leader since President Jimmy Carter switched diplomatic recognition to China from Taiwan in 1979 – as an opening salvo in a risky test of wills with Beijing.

However, Trump followed this by saying he would nominate Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, a long-standing friend of Beijing, as the next U.S. ambassador to China, a move which that country’s state news agency said was a positive sign for ties.

Heart Gift 8: Our Humble Little Bricks: A letter from 1953

My Heart Gift today is one of my favorite letters from my father. It is a letter that he wrote to his step-father, from Turkey in 1953-63 years ago. Aged just 23 at the time of writing, his words are poetic, profound and as relevant today as they were in 1953. The letter was published in his book, The Unbeaten Track in 1970. I include his description before the letter as I think it is a beautiful example of my father’s word alchemy. I hope you enjoy it!

“A fortnight later, rucksack on my back, I had hitch-hiked right across Europe and into central Turkey. A letter from home awaited me in the little town of Kayseri, the Caesarea of antiquity. I stopped there for a couple of days, putting up, by invitation of the headmaster, at the local college, empty for the summer vacation. There I started a friendship with Orhan, a student who still remained in the college waiting for his parents to come from Istanbul before joining them in their native village close by. ‘Why don’t you come along with me?’ Orhan said, ‘and see life in a Turkish village?’

It was from that village that I re-read Tadeusz’s letter. ‘What in hell draws you to these countries?’ he wrote. ‘Are you still as keen about it, or have the poverty and primitive conditions cooled you off a bit by now?’ The evening light was failing, as I sat in the porch of my host’s modest cottage, and smiled to myself. The village square was deep in fine dust. Chickens scratched around in the animal droppings for food; a flock of ducks came wobbling across the square hustled home by a ten-year-old in baggy trousers with missing fly-buttons, his round chubby face in striking contrast to his oversized cap. He whistled sharply, raising his stick towards the laggards who were trying to dispute the droppings with the chicken, and shouted gaily ‘burda, burda!’ (‘this way!).

Now a herd of cattle ambled to their sheds, trailing dust, lowing softly, the resonance of their bells mingling with long- drawn shepherd calls which the hushed clear air seemed to hold for ever, so that they lingered lazily like the dancing dust that tarried over the square. Last of all the bullock-carts lumbered in, ponderous on their spokeless wheels of solid wood, their axles whining and complaining with a note of ever-changing pitch.

Lost in thought, I didn’t notice Orhan, who had brought a hurricane lamp and a dish of sour milk. ‘There!’ he smiled, ‘you can’t write home in the dark. The night falls fast here. Eat this soon, or it’ll be swimming with gnats.’ ‘Tashakur’ (‘thank you!’), I grinned back at him, ‘I wish my Turkish were half as good as your English!’

‘You ask me if I like it here,’ I wrote. ‘Oh yes, intensely, but how can I explain? It’s a bit like meeting a girl, when everything clicks, and you fall in love. I feel gloriously alive and very much at home, almost as if I were regaining a homeland. But probing more deeply what can I say? You have to feel it and to live it. These lands suckled the earliest civilizations, nurtured the first roots of man’s timid gropings towards the tree that we are now. Beneath the outward poverty, under the grime and the tatters there is a culture as time itself, infinitely complex and wise. These weathered lands hold out the corrective to our brave new world, of the sobriety of age and experience, of diversity in life’s options: especially to those seeking to apprehend the ultimates and the quiddity within the ebb and flow of appearance. To me this last is particularly appealing: the directness and immediacy between man and his natural environment.

At the same time there is so much need here, so much wretchedness that could be remedied. The challenge is enormous. The poverty is crushing, perhaps less so here in Turkey than in other parts of Asia, a poverty often aggravated by the former exploitation by European colonial powers. I believe everybody in the West should be aware of this and its profound consequences for all of us. Help and alleviation of this wretchedness can come essentially from a better understanding of its causes, nature and extent, and in this every one of us can help, can contribute his humble little brick.

I daresay this may not answer your questions very satisfactorily, for it is written in the heat of the moment, real no less than for it is figurative – 96°F in the shade!”

Why Runners ‘Hit The Wall,’ And What To Do About It

Distance runners often worry about “hitting the wall” during training or races ― that dreaded moment when negative thoughts become so overpowering they make it difficult to continue. 

Hitting the wall typically happens around 20 miles into a marathon, when the body’s glycogen supplies become exhausted. At this point, many runners feel exhausted and discouraged, slow their pace, have trouble focusing and want to quit or walk.

“Generalized fatigue, unintentionally slowing their pace, the desire to walk, and shifting focus to just surviving the marathon appear to be particularly common features of it,” said Dr. Alistair McCormick, an exercise psychologist at the University of St Mark & St John in England who co-authored a new study published in the International Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology. “A marathon becomes a real mental battle when runners ‘hit the wall.’”

Psychological blocks are an extremely common and often performance-inhibiting experience for recreational endurance athletes, according to the study. To learn how they affect people, sports psychologists asked 30 recreational runners, cyclers and triathletes about the psychological demands of training, preparing for and participating in competitions.

A marathon becomes a real mental battle when runners ‘hit the wall.’
Dr. Alistair McCormick, University of St Mark & St John

The athletes described a number of common experiences. They reported struggling with the amount of time they invested in training and their lifestyle sacrifices leading up to an event, as well as things like staying focused during a competition, optimizing pacing and committing to training sessions.

“Recreational triathletes, runners and cyclists found it stressful trying to find the time to train,” McCormick said. “What was also interesting was the number of potential banana skins encountered before and during competition ― adversities that could cause the athletes to lose their focus and their motivation to keep persevering.”

These roadblocks included difficult environmental conditions, punctures and equipment failure, problems with nutrition and hydration, or making a mistake, the study reported. The athletes in the study said they felt these obstacles affected their motivation and concentration, negatively affecting their overall performance. 

Breaking Through Mental Blocks

According to the Stanford University School of Medicine, 43 percent of marathoners are likely to hit the wall during a race. Finding ways to move past those kinds of experiences, then, could have major benefits for an athlete’s performance and well-being. 

“There’s good evidence that saying motivational things to yourself can benefit your running, cycling or swimming performance,” McCormick said. “Planning what to do if you encounter various problems can also be very valuable.”

This technique is referring to by sport psychologists as “if-then planning” ― for example, if you hit the wall, then you’ll use a visualization technique to help you imagine yourself getting through it. 

If you’ve been finding yourself coming up against mental roadblocks in your training, here are a few other sports psychologist-approved techniques to try.

1. Make a motivational playlist. Distracting yourself with some great tunes can help you make it to the finish line faster. A number of studies have shown that athletes run, bike and swim farther and faster when listening to music. 

2. Try the buddy system. A running partner can keep you motivated and on-track, and might even improve your performance, research shows. 

3. Visualize achieving your goal. A study on weight-lifters found that mental practices can be as effective as physical practice, resulting in actual muscle increases. Visualizing your if-then plan, for instance, could improve your chance of success, according to McCormack.

4. Try “attention narrowing.” Runners who focus their eyes on an object in the distance get there faster. Last year, an NYU study found that focusing on an object on the horizon makes the distance feel shorter, and leads runners to go faster and exert themselves less than those who let their minds wander.  

With these helpful strategies, your next personal record might be just around the corner.

Blaming Russia To Overturn The Election

When the Clinton campaign said it would join the recount in three Rust Belt states narrowly lost to Donald Trump, it didn’t say its motive was overcoming the vote totals but instead to find out if there was “foreign interference” in the election.

“This election cycle was unique in the degree of foreign interference witnessed throughout the campaign,” wrote Clinton campaign counsel Marc Elias. “The U.S. government concluded that Russian state actors were behind the hacks of the Democratic National Committee and the personal email accounts of Hillary for America campaign officials.”

During the campaign Hillary Clinton made no secret of where she thought that foreign interference might be coming from. She repeatedly blamed Russia for trying to sway the election.

When the Green Party’s Jill Stein launched her recount campaign in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania (the three states that gave Trump the victory), Stein’s announcement quoted her on her website as saying that because “foreign agents” had “hacked into party databases, private email servers, and voter databases in certain states, many Americans are wondering if our election results are reliable.” Stein’s page was then updated to eliminate reference to “foreign agents” in her quote.

But her recount petition filed in Wisconsin begins by saying “it was widely reported that foreign operators breached voter registration databases in at least two states and stole hundreds of thousands of voter records.” The petition then says the U.S. intelligence community is “confident” Russia was behind the hacks. There is “well-documented and conclusive evidence of foreign interference in the presidential race before the election … [that] call[s] into question the results and indicate the possibility that (a) widespread breach occurred,” Stein’s lawyers wrote.

In fact the intelligence community has never made public its evidence for independent computer experts to weigh in on. After the election, the Obama administration said it had no proof of Russian interference in the election tallies and that the results “accurately reflect the will of the American people.”

Citing the Press

Nevertheless, Exhibit A in Stein’s petition is an affidavit from Professor J. Alex Halderman, a professor of computer science at the University of Michigan, who alleges that Russia hacked the election. Halderman took part in a conference call with the Clinton campaign last month trying to convince the campaign to seek a recount, which it only did after Stein launched her effort.

Exhibit B from Stein’s petition is an article from Wired Magazine about Russia’s alleged role in the hack. Exhibit C is a New York Times article quoting DellSecureWorks, a private security firm, saying Russia was behind the hack of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. The company says Podesta clicked on a phishing link to gain access to his account. The Times relied on the company’s word that Russian spies were behind the phishing expedition, without also offering any proof that could be analyzed by other computer security experts.

Exhibits D through G — meaning all of Stein’s exhibits — are on alleged Russian hacking. One article is about an alleged attempted Russian hack of the 2014, post-coup Ukrainian election.

In her many media appearances since launching the recount campaign, Stein has carefully avoided mentioning Russia, or foreign agents, as she did in her initial web posting. But her petition is about nothing else but Russia’s alleged hacking of the election.

Stein left no doubt what one of the main aims of the recount is. On her web page she wrote: “Whether these machines were hacked by foreign or domestic agents **will be determined by using the mechanisms available to us** in each state we conduct a recount.”

Scott McLarty, the Green Party national media coordinator, told me in an email last week that the Green Party has “not taken a position on meddling by foreign agents.” Since then, top Green Party officials have distanced themselves from Stein, including her running mate, Ajamu Baraka.

“I’m not in favor of the recount,” Baraka told CNN. He said he told Stein “it was a potentially dangerous move” because it “would be seen as carrying the water for the Democrats.”

Margaret Flowers, the Green’s Senate candidate in Maryland, posted an open letter signed by several prominent party members saying, “While we support electoral reforms, including how the vote is counted, we do not support the current recount being undertaken by Jill Stein.”

While he first ignored, and then slammed the recount bid Donald Trump went to court in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin on Friday trying to stop the recounts. So far the action has failed to stop them, but it could create a legal mess down the road. The litigious Trump can be expected to fight to the Supreme Court to prevent the vote from being overturned.

Lobbying the Electors

But since recounts that overturn the vote totals seem unlikely, it appears the Clinton campaign’s Plan B is to use any evidence of tampering that it can pin on Russia to lobby electors to change their votes to Clinton when the Electoral College meets in state capitals on Dec. 19.

Trump won the electoral college 306 to 232. That means 38 Republican electors would have to be convinced to change their vote to Clinton to reach the required 270 to win the White House.

Finding evidence of hacking of election computers that can somehow be blamed on Russia could be crucial for the Clinton team in their effort to convince electors to change their vote.

Russia has been blamed in the U.S. for many things and though proof never seems to be supplied, it is widely believed anyway. It has been accepted as fact by American corporate media, for instance, that Russia invaded Ukraine and had a hand in shooting down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17, though no conclusive proof for either has ever been presented.

Emotional appeals to elector’s patriotism and defense of the American system against interference by Russia could make a persuasive argument, however.

At an event at Harvard University on Thursday, Robby Mook, Clinton’s campaign manager, repeatedly blamed Russia for hacking and tampering with the election. “Congress has got to investigate what happened with Russia here,” said Mook. “It is outrageous that a foreign aggressor got involved in our election.”

Robert Reich, labor secretary under President Bill Clinton and a Hillary supporter, argued that one reason the electors should flip to Clinton is to “stop foreign interference in an election.”

Quoting an article, he wrote on Facebook: “The Framers were extremely concerned about infiltration by rivals including Great Britain. In Federalist No. 68, Hamilton wrote that one major purpose of the Electoral College was to stop the ‘desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.’ He said that the college would, ‘Guard against all danger of this sort … with the most provident and judicious attention’ from the electors.”

Reich continued: “There’s incontrovertible evidence Russia interfered in the campaign by hacking the email accounts of top Democratic officials and cooperating with WikiLeaks’ parallel campaign to undermine Hillary Clinton campaign.” If such incontrovertible evidence exists, the Obama administration’s intelligence community has not shared it with the public.

Clinton operatives are also making her victory by more than 2 million popular votes part of their appeal to electors to switch sides.

Twenty-four states do not legally bind electors to the popular vote in their states. Elsewhere, electors face fines of about $ 1,000 if they vote against the will of the people of their states.

Laurence Tribe, a well-known and connected Democratic lawyer, has offered to defend pro bono any elector who breaks the law by changing their vote to Clinton. And there are plans to mount a constitutional challenge against the 26 states that legally bind the electors’ to their state’s popular vote.

Accompanying Media Campaign

The lobbying effort to blame Russia and get the electors to flip their votes is being accompanied by an intense media campaign.

In the announcement that the Clinton campaign would join the recount, campaign counsel Elias aligned the campaign with an unverified Washington Post article based largely on a shadowy, anonymous group that smears a list of 200 alternative media sites, including The Duran, for spreading Russian propaganda to influence the election, without providing any evidence.

“The Washington Post reported that the Russian government was behind much of the ‘fake news’ propaganda that circulated online in the closing weeks of the election,” Elias wrote.

A Huffington Post article said one of the eight reasons the electors should overturn the election is because “Russian covert action influenced the election.”

The staunchly pro-Clinton Daily Kos wrote that “Even if they never touched a voting machine, there’s absolutely no doubt: Russia hacked the election.”

If evidence of hacking is found in the recounts, the Clinton campaign would be greatly aided in lobbying electors with confirmation from the Obama administration that Russia was behind it. But on the day before the Clinton team joined the recount, the Obama administration appeared to throw a wrench into the plan to blame Russia.

The administration said it remained “confident in the overall integrity of electoral infrastructure, a confidence that was borne out,” adding: “As a result, we believe our elections were free and fair from a cyber-security perspective.”

The timing of that statement may have been intended to undermine Clinton as a split was reported between President Obama and Hillary Clinton over whether to have a recount.

Not satisfied with the administration’s conclusion, a group of Democratic senators on Thursday asked that information about Russian hacking should be declassified and released to the public.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest responded that the administration would take a look at the request. But he added that the intelligence community “did not observe an increase in malicious cyber-activity on Election Day from the Russians that was directed at disrupting the casting or counting of ballots.”

What I Wish I Had Known In My Twenties

What one thing do you wish you had known about life when you were in your 20s? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by James Altucher, blogger, author, social media, investor, wall street investor, on Quora:

One time when I was twenty-five, I went shopping for an engagement ring for my girlfriend. We had been together for three years, and my dad kept asking when I would marry her. My friends kept asking. Her friends kept asking. Her dad kept asking her and she would tell me.

We were living together. And I liked her. Maybe I loved her.

But I started to shiver when I was looking at rings in the store. My friend who I was with took one look at me and quoted a lyric from an MC 900 Ft Jesus song: “Something’s gonna happen, and it’s probably not good.”

So I didn’t buy the ring. We didn’t get married. She moved out. We moved to different cities. I called her once a few years later, but now she’s not even on Facebook, and we haven’t talked since.

That sums up the twenties – everything you think is important and meaningful has absolutely no bearing on your future life.

I loved her. I had a job. I was writing novels. I had friends. I was a computer programmer.

Now, none of the above is true. (Oh, I have friends. Just different friends – 100% different).

And everything in my thirties – nothing is true anymore (except I have two kids still. Although now they are not babies. Now they are smarter than me).

I’m forty-eight now.

My most recent career change occurred when I was forty-seven. Before that, I started writing seriously (I wrote five very unserious books in my thirties) when I was forty-two.

In my twenties and thirties, my average weight was about 155 – 170. Now it’s 140. I write every day. I don’t obsess about money all day long. And I make bad decisions all day long – just like I did in my twenties.

The main skill I got between my twenties and now is that I bounce back from bad things faster.

I was very successful in my late twenties. And then a total failure after. Then very successful. And so on.

So that didn’t change. Only my ability to bounce back from really bad things. Horrible things. Things you wouldn’t want to wish on anyone, and yet they happen, in some form or other, to everyone.

So the only thing I can with full integrity say I wish I had known: nothing at all matters. Oh, and since nothing matters, once you realize that, you’ll start to bounce back faster.

And since nothing matters, you might as well be kind to people as much as possible. We can all laugh at the same joke at the end of this very long day.

This Moving Ad For ‘Rogue One’ Has People In Tears

A new ad from a telecommunications company and “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is touching people’s hearts, even those in a galaxy far, far away.

Globe Telecom in the Philippines teamed up with “Rogue One” for an ad to encourage people to join the #CreateCourage social media campaign to compete for prizes. In the ad posted on the company’s YouTube channel, a girl wears a Stormtrooper helmet everywhere: on her way to school, during class and at home as she dances with her brother. But it’s the last 20 seconds of the video that has commenters on YouTube asking things like, “Who cut all these onions?!”

Life on the Tyne

Life on the Tyne


Whilst the early modern period has long been recognized as witnessing a growth in trade and consumerism, the majority of studies to date have tended to focus upon London and southern England. In order to provide a more balanced understanding of the dynamics at work on a national level, this book explores the local economy and waterborne trades of Newcastle and the River Tyne, in North East England. Drawing upon a variety of primary sources – including parish records, probate inventories, Newcastle Exchequer port books and the previously unpublished diary of an apprentice hostman – none of which have been examined previously in this context, the study adds significantly to our understanding of the growing community in North East England. In particular, it underlines the expansion of a thriving middling class with an associated culture of consumption driving a rapid increase in the import, and often re-export of a wide range of luxury items of food, clothing and soft furnishings. As the coal trade and a flourishing general trade with London and other home and overseas ports grew, the book highlights the major impact upon the size and variety of work in the port, and the subsequent increasing size and complexity of the water trades community and its associated business networks.

The Japanese Love It When Their First Lady Criticizes Her Husband’s Policies

Shinzo Abe will be the first sitting Japanese prime minister to visit Pearl Harbor when he makes the trip later this month to commemorate today’s 75th anniversary of the bombing attack.

But his wife, Akie Abe, beat him to it when she made a solo trip to Pearl Harbor this summer, where she prayed for those who died there in Japan’s 1941 surprise attack on the US. Some have speculated that the prime minister was influenced by his wife to make the trip himself.

And it’s hardly the first time Akie Abe has been seen as as a likely influence on her 62-year-old husband’s views. In an interview with Bloomberg last week, the 54-year-old described her willingness to challenge the positions and policies of the prime minister and head of the right-leaning Liberal Democratic Party.

“I want to pick up and pass on the views that don’t get through to my husband or his circle,” the first lady said. “That is a bit like an opposition party, I suppose.”

The daughter of a wealthy candy manufacturing magnate and a former radio DJ, Akie Abe has rejected the traditional role of a docile first lady whose influence is limited to hosting state functions and seeing to the interior decor of the official residence.

Akie has openly challenged Shinzo Abe’s support of nuclear power, and of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. She has also taken up causes of her own, fighting for the adoption of medical marijuana and the revival of domestic hemp farming, and standing up for LGBT rights. Despite tense relations between South Korea and Japan’s Nationalist government, she has made a point of cooking Korean food and discussing her love of Korean culture, including its TV dramas.

When she isn’t running her central Tokyo organic gastropub, Akie Abe is surprising the press with bold political statements. In August, she flew to Okinawa, where she met with protesters who opposed an expansion project at a local US Marine Corps base—one her husband supported.

Her relative rebelliousness doesn’t go unnoticed. Akie Abe uses Facebook to make her views public, and has become known as the “household opposition.” She has found both adoring fans and harsh critics online.

Strikingly, Akie Abe’s assertions of independent views have mostly endeared her to the Japanese public, and they have not hurt the prime minister’s popularity. In fact, analysts have said that she enhances his reputation.

Jun Okumura, a former trade ministry official and current visiting scholar at Meiji Institute of Global Affairs told Bloomberg that the first lady softens the prime minister’s image because it shows voters that “he can tolerate very different points of view, very different perspectives.”

Last year, Koichi Nakano, a political scientist at Sophia University in Tokyo, told The Washington Post: “I think that without her, he would just come across as someone from a very privileged background and with very strong, right-wing views, just a stubborn conservative.”

Some have questioned Shinzo Abe’s motives for going to Pearl Harbor. His wife’s views, on the other hand, are quite clear. “I think that we have to pass on the memory to the next generation,” she told Japanese reporters, “transcending the feelings of hate and anger.”

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs.

American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge.

Chase Your Dream, Not Your Dragon

There is nobody like you on the planet, and with the right development, we can attract the support of others who will welcome our dream, too.

With growth, there will always be an opportunity to attain the thing you want, no matter how it shows itself. To imagine a life without a dream, even the tiniest one, is submitting to a world of mediocrity.

Jenn is principled, articulate and passionate – but running for Congress is a steep climb.

According to Malcolm Gladwell’s book Outliers and the ten-thousand-hour rule of “deliberate practice,” which asserts that to become a world-class expert in any field, a person must practice their skill or trade for ten thousand hours. The Beatles did it in Hamburg and Steve Jobs in a high school computer lab. Gladwell believed that by reaching 10,000 hours (that’s about 90 minutes per day for 20 years) of practice you can become an outlier – the “Tipping-Point” of greatness.

Today, we have new rules. We believe that if we think about one thing long enough it will hardwire into us. Our new cracked system of facts makes it possible for anyone to claim anything as reality in a post-truth era. But Gladwell’s ten-thousand-hour rule offers a greater prospect of deciphering the faux from the real deal.

Let’s be honest, for most folk winning a congressional race is near on impossible. The odds are stacked high. To succeed, Jenn would need media coverage, infrastructure and money. It takes years to build all three components, and Jenn has none. Although principled, articulate and passionate, her feelings of self-worth are now at ground zero.

Running for Congress is Jenn’s go-to story, how she defines her world. But, in truth, she has no resources or support. She has moderate experience and no plans. “If you can’t link the dots,” I told her, “Your approach will always let you down.”

She felt like she had failed. But in hindsight, she hadn’t failed at all; she was just beginning.

I had spent a good 30 minutes listening to Jenn. She must have mentioned grassroots at least seven times. There is always a clue if you listen to a person long enough. I let her know that.

My thought was to open more of a dialogue about her interest in grassroots work.

Her eyes lit up as she rambled excitingly about working as an activist. A grassroots activist. Her inspiration was back. She felt energized.

Did she want to work for an organization to help women, or apply for a grassroots internship? “Oh,” she said, “So many thoughts, so many decisions – I can’t wait to make them all.”

She smiled, and with that I knew she was well on her way towards her heart dream. And who knows, she may become a congressional winner after all.

Just really, believe in what you’re trying to do. Don’t let people alter that. Let people advise you and lead you down paths to make smart business decisions. But trust your instinct and trust that overwhelming drive that made you put all your dreams and everything on the line. –Luke Bryan

Doctor In Hot Water For Asking Patients To Fund His Retirement

Dr. Myron MacDonald — a West Vancouver, Canada, general practitioner who, after 48 years in practice, sent his patients a two-page letter asking for their financial help so he could afford retirement — may have gotten himself in trouble.

MacDonald, who described his career as “a pleasure, not a chore,” said he didn’t make much money during his career because he ran a low-volume practice that allowed him to spend time with each patient. He wrote to his patients that he has limited savings and no pension and asked them to assist him by donating whatever they could.

“Any amount will be of help to me,” he wrote. “Perhaps $ 20 to $ 30 a month on your credit card could work for you.”

But the letter may have landed him in hot water. He is facing scrutiny from the regulatory B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons. The outgoing message on MacDonald’s office phone said the office has been closed. He did not respond to messages left by The Huffington Post.

MacDonald, 74, billed $ 163,978 last year, according to the Medical Services Commission. The doctor told the Vancouver Sun said that his business expenses ate up much of that money.

But according to The Sun, B.C.’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, which regulates the medical profession in the province, slammed MacDonald’s actions.

In an emailed statement the regulatory body released, it said that MacDonald’s request violated Canadian medical principles.

“Any physicians who request money from patients to support him or her in retirement would be contravening a foundational principle which every physician is required to abide by: Do not exploit patients for personal advantage,” a spokesperson wrote. The spokesman said the college expected to resolve the matter within the next few days and that there would be no formal investigation or discipline if MacDonald took steps to make things right. 

Canada’s health care is provided to all citizens through socialized health insurance plans. It is publicly funded and administered on a provincial or territorial basis, within guidelines set by the federal government.

MacDonald was one of the co-founders of Greenpeace and served as a medic on the environmental group’s campaigns to save the whales in the 1970s. According to his letter, he spent four years circumnavigating the globe by sailboat after his time with Greenpeace.

His letter also reminds patients to take their Vitamin D, and promises to continue nagging them to do so.

Here is the letter he sent to patients. What do you think, readers?

The Power of Nice in the Age of Mean

The demeaning insults, the angry diatribes, the total disrespect and disregard of any opinion that isn’t an exact replica of our own.

And we’re just talking about this past Thanksgiving dinner. Millions of our own beloved relatives and friends could not resist talking turkey about their political views, red, blue, purple, green and rainbow colored. (Who knew that tryptophan could be such a life-saver, mercifully putting to bed myriad arguments with a self-satisfied snooze before the pumpkin pie was served?) And now with the winter holidays approaching, the familial season of good tidings and cheer might well snowball into a wrath of infighting and tears.

So as we approach the New Year, let us not rush to usher in the age of mean, where nastiness, bullying and intolerance become the new black. Instead, we’d like to offer you some “nice” facts that may help guide your better angels:

1. Nice is Luckier in Love.

A University of Toronto study found that people who are congenial have one half the divorce rate of the general population.

2. Nice Makes More Money.

Daniel Goleman, author of Primal Leadership, found that every 2 percent increase in the service climate of an organization- that is, the cheerfulness and helpfulness of the staff – saw a 1 percent increase in revenue.

3. Nice is Healthier.

Ervin Staub, professor of psychology at the University of Massachusetts, found that people who regularly perform acts of kindness have fewer trips to the doctor. And a University of Michigan study found that older people who are altruistic have a 60 percent lower rate of pre-mature death than their unhelpful peers (University of Michigan study). Live mean, die young?

4. Nice Spends Less Time in Court.

The Vanderbilt University School of Medicine found that doctors who have never been sued speak to their patients for an average of 3 minutes longer than physicians who have been sued twice or more. Just by being more empathetic, doctors might avoid malpractice suits altogether.

5. Nice Teams are More Productive

In a 2102 Google study of its own employees, they found that the most productive groups were not the ones populated with Mensa I.Q.s, but the ones where everyone’s opinion was respected and where team members felt “psychologically safety” with their peers.

Regardless of the current “you must eat your young in order to survive” political environment we have been mercilessly mired in, we have found that many of America’s most successful business leaders are nicer, kinder, and more collaborative than many of their competitors. As founders of one of the country’s fastest growing and most successful ad agencies, with blue chip clients that included Wendy’s, US Bank, Aflac, and Procter & Gamble, we can attest to the fact that CEOs who treat their employees with dignity and respect have less turnover, more productive employees, and a staff willing to go the extra mile (and a half) to build their companies.

In a study published by the Harvard Business Review, (WSJ, Christine Parath), employees who found their leaders were respectful and considerate reported “92% greater focus and prioritization, 56% better health and well-being,” and feeling “55% more engaged.” Conversely, in a University of Florida study where subjects were made to feel belittled or disrespected, the participants came up with 39% fewer creative ideas than their respected counterparts (University of Florida, Erez & Porath).

Yet “nice” continues to get a bad rap, so let’s clear the air here. Nice does not equate with being a doormat or endlessly filling everyone’s champagne glass. Nice is being assertive, yet empathetic, strong, but collaborative, taking the stage, but willing to share the spotlight.

Harry Truman, one of our country’s most unpretentious and least self-aggrandizing presidents, famously declared:

“It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.”

We couldn’t agree more.

So as the holidays approach, can we, as a divided and angry nation, find a way to work with each other, through our business and personal lives, so that we can accomplish the goals that will move us all forward?

Today, many of us view the world with our nose to the canvas, seeing only bleak lines and dots. Our perspective makes us unable to discern the expansive palette of our incredible history: the millions of immigrants of all colors, races, and religions who, by working together, were able to win two World Wars, survive the Great Depression, and improve the lives of all Americans.

Now, more than ever, we need to take a collective step back and focus on the bigger picture, knowing in our hearts and minds that we will only realize our dreams when we treat each other with compassion, respect and kindness.

Now wouldn’t that be nice?

Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval are the bestselling authors of The Power of Nice and have co-authored three other national bestsellers together: Grit to Great, The Power of Small and Bang! Getting Your Message Heard in a Noisy World.

The Aftermath

The Aftermath


The year is 2010 and the world as we know it has come to an end. A huge comet has smashed into the earth off the coast of California, vaporizing and generating a fiery rain that engulfs the globe in a destructive holocaust. But at the opposite pole of the planet, there is a “safe zone” encompassing part of the southeast African shore and the southern tip of Madagascar where the damage is extensive but not total. Spared from destruction is a luxury cruise ship, the Queen of Africa, which carries 600 of the world’s leading engineers. These outstanding technologists, traveling with their immediate families, are engaged in a seminar dedicated to finding solutions to humanity’s eternal needs-shelter, food, energy, environmental preservation, and the like. But when the impact of the comet sends shock waves around the world, the passengers’ first priority is to abandon ship for terra firma. Thus they head for the South African coast to begin the task of “starting over.”In KwaZulu Natal the passengers find a surviving community of about 25,000, including many experienced agricultural and industrial workers. These people have been cast back, physically, to the Stone Age, but intellectually they are at the forefront of technological progress in the 21st century, and they have at their disposal the natural resources needed to embark on an industrial revolution. So begins an epic adventure of rebuilding the world from scratch, but in an unpredictable, and sometimes hostile, environment, survival itself may be the real challenge. The Aftermath is a provocative adventure story that provides a scientifically sound blueprint for surviving Armageddon.

Van Jones Explains Why He’ll Never Give Up On Trying To Reach Trump Voters

Van Jones delivered a profoundly heart-wrenching speech amidst the chaos during election night and his words on Monday’s “Daily Show with Trevor Noah” were just as poignant.

Jones greeted Noah by saying, “Welcome to hell,” imploring viewers to recognize that Donald Trump’s presidency is not just a “ratings bonanza” for talk show hosts, but it means suffering “for the rest of us.” 

The discourse that follows breaks down who exactly the Trump supporters were and how we haven’t understood them properly, with Jones indicating that not all those who voted Trump did so for “racially negative reasons.”

Jones doesn’t defend or vilify these voters’ decisions, but notes that they “felt that the elite had sold them down the river in both parties” and goes on to say that “they weren’t wrong. We did not give them an opportunity to come to our side the way we should have.”

He adds that every Trump voter didn’t vote “for every crazy thing he said,” that many were “holding their noses” when they cast their ballots for both candidates. 

“We have to have a more nuanced view of people,” he says before giving an example of the viewpoint of veterans who voted for Trump. “There are veterans who voted for Trump, but if Trump goes after American Muslims, those veterans will march with us.”

He goes on to say, “Listen, Trump is much worse than anybody in this country is willing to accept, but a lot of his voters are much better and I don’t want to give them away.”

The last part of the discussion had Noah asking Jones a question that “many black Americans” are asking: “How many times do I have to be doing the right thing?”

Further, Noah presses: “Why do you feel the need for yourself to be reaching out? Because you could just say no, this country is racist, I don’t care, I’m out. But how do you justify it to yourself? Why engage?”

Jones says he’s inspired by Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr., and Ella Jo Baker who’ve been through “much worse” than him but never give up.

“I have one bad election and some bad tweets and quit? I can’t do that. And I will tell you: You cannot, especially this younger generation. They can’t quit either. I am a ninth generation American. A ninth generation American,” Jones says, emphatically. “I’m the first one in my family born with all my rights. My relatives didn’t quit and I’m not going either and neither should these young people. We’re just getting started.”

In conjunction with these statements, Jones said ― a recent interview with Esquire ― that we need to have “more authentic conversation.”

“Disagreement is fine. Conflict is fine. But let it be authentic. Let it be true, which starts off with: nobody is perfect. None of these candidates are perfect. None of these political parties are perfect,” he says. “It’s this whole mess that we’re in. You know, what can we honestly discover together? That’s a constructive conversation. That’s the conversation I want to have.”

Jones’ special “The Messy Truth” airs on CNN on Dec. 6th at 9 p.m. EST.
