Obama Gave Chance The Rapper This Career Advice

President Barack Obama gave hip-hop artist Chance the Rapper a bit of career advice during a recent White House event.

In an August interview with GQ magazine, the artist said he joined other celebrities like DJ Khaled, Alicia Keys and Nicki Minaj at the White House in April to discuss the My Brother’s Keeper Initiative and criminal justice reform.

“At the end [of the meeting], everybody takes a group photo, and he’s signing stuff. And he keeps pushing me to the back, and I’m like, ‘I don’t understand why he won’t sign my shit.’ And he makes me wait till the end, and then he brings me up to his office, and we had a really good conversation about what I was working on. He told me I needed to start selling my music,” Chance says.

“He’s a good man. Even if he wasn’t president, if his ass worked at, like, Red Lobster, he’d be just a good man working at Red Lobster,” the Chicago rapper added.

Chance’s third mixtape, “Coloring Book”, was released exclusively on Apple Music this spring and according to him it’s in heavy rotation at the Obama’s residency.

“Oh yeah. They’re bumping ‘Coloring Book’ hard up there. If you go up there, you’ll probably hear ‘Coloring Book.’ This is not a joke at all,” the artist said.

“Malia listens to ‘Coloring Book,’” he added, referencing the president’s oldest daughter. “And I send them stuff sometimes. I haven’t seen Malia since I was a kid. I think [Malia and Sasha] were both in school the day that I went up there recently, but Barack was talking about it. Or, uh, President Obama was talking about it.”

One of Chance’s tracks, “Acid Rain,” is featured on the president’s Spotify summer playlists.

On Tuesday, the 23-year-old rapper took to Twitter to clarify that he will not be at ESPN’s town hall about race relations after a rumor was started that he would be in attendance.

In a series of tweets, Chance wrote about “the responsibility of all media outlets to correctly label all killings by 1st responders as what they are: Murders.”

An Alert, Well-Hydrated Artist in No Acute Distress–Episode Twenty-Six: Why?

A serial about two artists with incurable neurological disease sharing fear, frustration and friendship as they push to complete the most rewarding creative work of their careers.
2016-08-24-1472051006-4926355-EPisode26.jpg
Read Episode Twenty-Five: Chasing Empathy. Or, start at the beginning: An Illness’s Introduction. Find all episodes here.

When trying to make a diagnosis, a doctor is presented with the outcome of a story – the patient’s condition. She or he must bushwhack backward through that patient’s health history, focusing on elements that might be relevant in order to most expediently arrive at the “what” of an illness and a treatment plan. The “why” of it is a critical, but not urgent, piece of the narrative that is chased down by scientists or the curious patient.

It’s impossible for me to think about my friends’ and my own illnesses without wondering what details of our personal histories might point to causes. And, aside from the particulars of each case, I see our diseases as part of a larger narrative about the health of our generation. Or, more precisely, the ill health of our generation. My robust father, who died at 91, two months before my Parkinson’s diagnosis, often commented on the difficulty of growing old and watching friends die. I understood the pain he must have felt, watching the lights go out around him as the shadow of his own inevitable death moved closer. My equally vigorous father-in-law said to me, “You have Parkinson’s and here I am, 88 years old, with nothing ailing me.” He shook his head because it didn’t seem fair to him and because my disease makes him sad. It makes me sad, too. But my sadness has an edge to it because too many of my generation have been stricken with serious illnesses. My friends and family have dealt with five different kinds of cancer, heart disease, stroke, neurological disease, a rare blood disorder, diabetes, fibromyalgia, lupus, psoriatic arthritis and a host of other debilitating autoimmune diseases, all long before the age of 60.

Yet, journalists continue to optimistically present evidence of our longevity: “The median age of cancer death is 72. We live long enough for it to get us.” And, “Cancer mortality is decreasing.” Statements about cancer’s biologic inevitability seem especially heartless considering that many cancer patients won’t live nearly long enough to experience “inevitable.” Similarly misleading is the spin that’s often put on Parkinson’s disease: the reason it seems like more people have Parkinson’s is that we’re better at diagnosing it. My primary care doctor doesn’t buy this. She’s concerned about the increasing number of patients she sees with PD, many of them under 50. “Parkinson’s has clearly been on the rise,” she says.

As we boomers age, TV ads depicting retired folks wallowing in freedom, adventure (and Viagra), seem less and less relevant. Most of us are spending a lot of our free time caring for not only elderly parents, but also our very ill friends or ourselves. Can we bear to ponder why? Maybe not so much. Occasionally when I sing this solemn note, someone will exhale an exasperated, “I know!” But often, people will give me that, “Well hello, sunshine!” look.

Along with rejoicing in our greater longevity, people of my generation often wax nostalgic about the freedoms we had as kids that our own, “overprotected” kids haven’t enjoyed. Indeed, my childhood on the coast of Maine was full of delicious risk-taking. Before I was even ten, my friends and I would skate unsupervised on thin ice (literally), get caught in powerful tidal currents in sailboats, and lose our way in the woods. There were incidents and accidents galore, but they were considered part of life’s big adventure. Even the story my parents often recounted about my running down the hill when I was two and launching myself off our dock into the cove always elicited light-hearted laughter. “That’s why we called her ‘fleet-foot,'” my mother would say. (My grandfather, dressed in a wool tweed suit, had been in the yard and ran down the hill and jumped in to retrieve me.)

We were awash in freedom. Freedom to run wild through our neighborhoods or ride alone on a public bus, to row a boat without a lifejacket, to bike without a helmet, to wrestle and sprawl, unbelted, in the back of the cigarette smoke-choked family station wagon. Freedom to eat Twinkies, Velveeta, Fruit Loops, a smorgasbord of canned and frozen foods miraculously preserved by new chemicals. And that yummy school paste! Blissfully unaware of pollution, we were allowed to wade into anything liquid, bake ourselves jerky-brown on the beach and chase the DDT truck as it spread its cool fog through our fields. We were the aerosol generation; anything that could be sprayed would be sprayed: hair products, deodorant, mosquito repellant, paint…The inexpendable air and endless ocean could surely carry away our insults. The earth’s generous crops fed us well, thanks to powerful pesticides developed after World War Two. Compared to the era of our parents’ childhoods – wedged between two world wars and chastened by The Great Depression – ours was a lucky time to be a kid.

But then a few good earth stewards crashed our reckless party. In 1962, Rachel Carson, in her book The Silent Spring, laid out the impact on the earth and its creatures of widespread use of DDT and other chemicals, kicking off the environmental movement that would lead to the ban, ten years later, of DDT for agricultural use. In 1964, the U.S. Surgeon General released its first report on the dangers of cigarette smoking. (Fun fact: research shows that smokers are less at risk for Parkinson’s.) President Nixon created the Environmental Protection Agency in 1970, which wrote and enforced measures passed by Congress designed to protect the environment from human activity. But enforcement came too late for those of us who’d grown up with “better living through chemistry.”

Rarely, members of my Parkinson’s Facebook group will discuss possible causes of their PD. Some point to prolonged exposure to certain chemicals and many others mention the well water they grew up drinking, their proximity to land where pesticides like DDT were used, or their family’s own liberal use of insecticides. Research has shown that drinking well water located within 1/3 mile from crops treated with these chemicals is associated with a 66% – 90% increased risk of PD, and the brains of PD patients have been found to contain higher levels of them than brains from control subjects. Since the ban of DDT, two herbicides, Agent Orange, a defoliant used during the Vietnam War, and paraquat have been tied to Parkinson’s.

One of my most troubling discoveries soon after my diagnosis was that at least some of the organic fruits and vegetables I’d been buying for my family for many years were likely to have been treated with an insecticide shown to cause Parkinson’s in animal models. Because Rotenone is derived from the roots and seeds of tropical plants, it was considered “natural” and has been used ubiquitously in organic farming as well as in flea powder and lice treatment for humans. In 2004, following up on research linking it to PD, the EPA ordered a study to test inhalation neurotoxicity. Rather than submitting to the study, the makers of Rotenone opted to discontinue its use in food growing; in the U.S., it is now used only for piscicide (fish kill). But because the EPA has not banned Rotenone, organic produce treated with it in other countries can be imported by the U.S. and labeled organic.

Scientists know that environmental toxins alone – pesticides, solvents (like those used in dry cleaning), certain metals and tainted well water – can’t be blamed for Parkinson’s disease. Most people who’ve had even long-term exposure to pesticides won’t develop the disease. Rather, a combination of nature and nurture makes a person susceptible to PD, a case in which “genetics loads the gun and environment pulls the trigger.” Parkinson’s is heritable; people who have a family member with the disease have a 4%-10% higher risk of developing it themselves if they carry at least one of several gene mutations associated with PD. LRRK2 is the most common mutation known to cause familial PD and occurs in 1-2% of all people with Parkinson’s. Some with PD carry variants of the gene ABCB1, which restrict ABCB1’s role in helping the brain to flush out toxicants. Studies have demonstrated that the relationship between exposure to pesticides like DDT and Parkinson’s disease is 3.5 times stronger in those carrying the ABCB1 gene variants than in non-carriers.

For the approximately 90% of people with Parkinson’s who, like me, don’t have the gene variants associated with PD, scientists believe there have been more than one cause for neuronal death in our brain’s substantia nigra. For example, in a literal case of adding insult to injury, the risk of Parkinson’s doubles when someone exposed to certain pesticides has previously sustained even a moderate head injury. A blow to the head interrupts the blood-brain barrier that protects the brain, allowing toxins to chronically seep in and destroy dopaminergic neurons. Head trauma also produces an increase in alpha-synuclein, a protein that can become pathogenic and clumps in the brains of people with PD (alpha synuclien plays a major role in PD and will be discussed in a future episode.) Add to the mix LRRK2 or other gene mutations implicated in Parkinson’s, and the risk is even higher.

Before learning about the one-two punch etiology of PD, I had hypothesized that the monstrous mosquito population in Maine and the prophylactic spraying of insecticides, including our family favorite, OFF!, were to blame for my PD. But then I discovered what might be another clue. At the recommendation of a friend, I went to see an osteopath for a nerve irritation in my lumbar spine. After gently manipulating my skeleton from my knees to my skull, the osteopath said, “I’m going to easily get a handle on the problem in your back, but what really concerns me is your head. Have you been in a bad accident?”

I was taken aback. I told him about two serious car accidents I’d been in as an adult, neither of which had caused me harm enough to be seen by a doctor.

“Anything else? A bad fall?” he persisted.

I thought about this. “Well,” I said. “I did fall eighteen feet from a tree when I was about ten.”

“Aha!” he said. “How badly were you hurt? Did you hit your head?”

I pictured the messy grove of sumac trees that grew on the steep, dirt slope next to our house in Maine. My parents had planted them to hide the neighbors’ new concrete ranch house, across the cove. They were tall and spindly, their trunks no more than three or four inches across, their narrow branches brittle. I was a monkey, forever pushing my luck, scrambling from limb to limb. One day when I was high in the trees, the limb I was sitting on broke. The fall was long enough – eighteen feet, we measured later – that I remember reaching out for branches I passed, hoping to interrupt my descent. I landed on my side, winded and stunned. My mother, who was enjoying iced tea in a lawn chair right next to the sumacs, heard the crack and the thud. I don’t remember anything about the time after the fall – my sister thinks she remembers I was knocked out for a bit – but I must have seen a doctor because I recall having to wear some kind of neck collar for a couple of weeks.

The osteopath explained to me that the head and spine are designed for constant movement; in a healthy adult, there’s an inherent rhythmic motion of the cranial bones that changes the shape of the dura mater, a membrane that encloses the brain and spinal cord. He felt that my cranium, and therefore my dura mater, had been immobilized – a condition he would typically find in a patient who’d experienced serious head trauma. My cranial rigidity, combined with hypercontracted spinal muscles caused by long hours at the computer and aggravated by Parkinson’s, he said, could be restricting the flow of blood, lymph and cerebral spinal fluids. By mobilizing my cranial sutures and applying gentle pressure to surrounding tissue, he felt he could release restrictions and restore more normal function.

The osteopath stopped short of suggesting that his finding could be a clue to my PD, and I had read nothing in the Parkinson’s literature that implicated a restricted flow of fluids to and from the brain in the development of the disease. And, because I understood that osteopathy stands to the side of the medical establishment, I didn’t share the osteopath’s ideas with my other doctors. But the connection made a lot of sense to me: my brain cells have been dying at an abnormal rate; couldn’t this be at least in part because they’ve been insufficiently supported by my body’s circulation system? I thought about Hadley, too: could her pulmonary stenosis at birth and her lifetime of extremely low blood pressure have impaired the bloodstream’s transport of oxygen and other nutrients to her brain cells, making them vulnerable to toxicants like the epoxy resin she used while sculpting?

Last year, a year after my first visit to the osteopath, a major discovery was made that strongly supports the idea that an impaired flow of fluids could be a contributing factor to my PD: a network of lymph vessels in the membrane surrounding the brain and spinal cord that connects the brain to the body’s immune system. Until this finding, scientists believed the human body had been thoroughly mapped and that the brain’s and body’s immune systems were separate. It was assumed that the blood-brain barrier largely protected the brain from the full assault of pathogens on the body as well as the immune response they triggered. The discovery that the central nervous system and immune system are connected not only provides new clues about neurological diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS) that are known to have an immune component, but also suggests that immune cells also might play a role in Parkinson’s. In PD, incorrectly formed alpha-synuclein proteins collect in the brain and become pathogenic, driving neuronal death. Since the recently identified lymphatic vessels are responsible for clearing away dead cells and other waste, scientists hypothesize that in Parkinson’s, a malfunction in the vessels makes them unable to properly dispose of the neurotoxic proteins.

In 2014, it was discovered that chronic activation of the immune system is the cause of many symptoms of neurodegenerative disease. Initially, our immune system gears up to protect our body from infections, toxins and injury, but if activation is prolonged, it can cause a heightened inflammatory response. In PD, this means that overactive immune cells in the brain attack dopamine neurons that help control the body’s movements. Learning this was an aha! moment for me: In Epsiode Six, I discussed how my integrative medicine doctor had explained my illness in my early 40’s as being caused by an overactive immune system, a diagnosis my primary care physician at the time had a good chuckle over. Looking at the research, it seems more and more likely that he was on target and that the immune activation could have hastened the onset of Parkinson’s. Now, the unearthing of vessels connecting the central nervous system to the immune system will shed light on exactly how the body’s immune response impacts the brain. This carries enormous implications for the future of PD treatments. In the meantime, I will probably continue to have the osteopath work on relieving the tissue and cranial restrictions he’s found, in an effort to ameliorate the lousy janitorial job being done by my newly discovered lymph vessels.

All of us begin life relentlessly asking why? why? why? To be human is to want to know. When I first joined our Parkinson’s Facebook group, I had a powerful desire to pursue the”why” of our shared disease. I imagined collecting data from all our members through an exhaustive survey that would ask about everything: health history, injuries, environment, work habits, emotional life – you name it. We had a ready-made young onset PD study group, I figured; all we had to do was harvest the information. But I soon realized that people who are sick generally are more inclined to look not backward, but forward, at developments that will bring new therapies, or even a cure, while staying as well as they can. I needn’t have worried that our data would go uncollected, though. Since my diagnosis, numerous scientific entities have begun administering online surveys that will inform PD research; I participate in two that are ongoing with the genetics company 23andMe and the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

A patient with a progressive neurological disease who asks “why?” is not likely to significantly change the course of her illness. But as we learn more about new factors that might contribute to the development of neurological conditions, we patients can broaden our approach to living with disease, and healthy people can take more preventative steps. Already, most of us have done what we can to avoid toxins and unhealthful environments. Now that we know that a stressed immune system creates excess inflammation that in turn can precipitate neuronal death, perhaps we will think twice about living a life of multitasking and more seriously pursue activities like sleep, meditation and yoga, which are known to calm the nervous system and relieve the immune system of its hypervigilance. Now that we know our precious brain, once considered “immunologically privileged,” is connected directly to the body’s immune system, perhaps we will be more vigilant about keeping our bodies healthy and treating anxiety and depression, which affect our immunity. The growing publicity about the potentially dire, delayed consequences of head trauma might make us more willing to don a helmet when skiing or riding a bike and less eager to encourage our children to play contact sports. With so many of us struggling with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s – in the U.S. alone, 5.4 million and over 1 million, respectively – it’s time to consider that we didn’t simply get dealt a bad hand (pun intended) and wind up with a devastating, mysterious brain disease.

Our bodies, our brains: they are our houses for life. When they start to fall apart, we don’t get to rip them down and start over. But if we ask enough questions, we can get to know them and care for them, room by messy room.

Birth Control Options for Women Over 40

Birth Control Options for Women Over 40

Many women believe, once they pass 40, that they are no longer fertile. In fact, a woman can get pregnant, intentionally or not, into her late 40s and beyond. And pregnancy after age 40 may carry greater risks. For this reason, contraception until menopause is important for women who are at risk for pregnancy and don’t want to be pregnant.

Because of misconceptions about the health risks of different birth control methods, some health care providers discourage perimenopausal women (those transitioning toward menopause) in their 40s and 50s from using contraceptive methods, such as birth control pills, that they previously relied on in their 20s and 30s. The truth is that a healthy, nonsmoking woman can safely use almost any contraceptive method, including the pill, all the way through menopause.

Many contraceptive methods are available, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. The main thing to consider (after health issues for women choosing certain contraceptives) is what method you are most motivated to use. By choosing a method that appeals to you, you will be more likely to use it correctly and stick with it.

Forgettable Contraception

When I talk with patients about contraception, I begin by discussing the methods that are most effective, safest, and easiest to use. These are called LARC, for long-acting reversible contraception, or HERC, for highly effective reversible contraception. I also like the term “forgettable contraception” because once you start one of these methods, you can typically forget about it for three or more years.

LARC includes contraceptive implants and intrauterine devices (IUDs). These are two of the safest birth control methods available. They not only have the lowest failure rates, but are also extremely easy to use, can be used by almost all women, and women tend to like and stick with them. For women in their 40s and 50s, who are often busy with careers, childrearing, and care of elderly parents, IUDs and implants fit well into their busy lifestyles. Moreover, these methods are safe for most women all the way through menopause.

Implants and IUDs are completely reversible and do not require surgical procedures. Because they lack estrogen, they can be used by women who smoke or have a history of blood clots, migraines, or high blood pressure. However, women who have had breast cancer within the past five years should not use methods that contain progestin.

Implants. Placed just beneath the skin of the inner upper arm, an implant is a small, flexible, synthetic rod, about the size of a matchstick. Lasting three years, it releases a small amount of progestin (a synthetic version of the female hormone progesterone) continuously into the bloodstream, like a slow-release capsule. This stops eggs from leaving the ovaries (ovulation), thereby preventing pregnancy.

IUDs. An IUD is a small T-shaped device placed inside the uterus. There, the IUD creates a sterile inflammatory reaction that works like a spermicide to prevent sperm from reaching the egg. Medication in the IUD enhances this contraceptive effect.

There are four types of IUD available in the United States. Three of these release a low dose of the hormone progestin; the progestin dose is low enough that it does not block ovulation, but rather works locally on the uterus and cervix to prevent fertilization. The hormone IUDs are approved for 3 or 5 years of use, depending on the model. Hormone-releasing IUDs decrease menstrual blood flow and cramps, which can be a benefit to perimenopausal women experiencing heavy periods. The other IUD available in the U.S.is a non-hormone IUD containing copper; this IUD lasts 10 years.

Other Hormonal Methods

Other hormonal birth control methods include injections, pills, patches, and vaginal rings, all of which prevent ovulation and are highly effective if used correctly. However, these methods require more attention on the part of the user, and thus are more prone to error.

Injection. Commonly known by the brand name Depo-Provera®, the depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) injection is a progestin given every three months. Women using DMPA may experience a decrease in bone mineral density (a measure of fracture risk), which may be a concern for women approaching menopause. However, there is no strong evidence that women using DMPA have more fractures than women who use other contraceptive methods. For this reason, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that the advantages of DMPA outweigh the risks in healthy women even over age 45. Because DMPA contains no estrogen, women who smoke or with health conditions such as a history of blood clots, migraines, or high blood pressure may safely use it.

The pill, patch, and ring. These methods are all just different ways of delivering the hormones estrogen and progestin into the bloodstream, either through the gastrointestinal tract, skin, or vaginal mucosa, respectively. The ring has to be changed monthly, the patch weekly, and the pill taken daily. They are essentially equivalent in terms of health risks. A healthy, nonsmoking woman can safely use these birth control methods all the way through menopause. According to the CDC, however, the risks may outweigh the benefits if you are a smoker or have a medical condition for which estrogen use is contraindicated, such as cardiovascular disease, migraines, or high blood pressure (even if it is well controlled). And any hormone-based method is contraindicated in a woman who has had breast cancer within the last five years.

Barrier Methods

A barrier method can be effective, but takes a high degree of user motivation and, in the case of condoms, male involvement. Condoms are great for preventing sexually transmitted diseases. Many women in their late 40s are in longer-term, committed relationships and don’t want to use a method that requires interrupting the sex act. Other barrier methods include diaphragms and cervical caps, but these are rarely used anymore.

Sterilization

A surgical procedure to permanently prevent pregnancy is an excellent option for women who are certain their family life is complete and need to avoid unintended pregnancy for many more years. But women near menopause must weigh the benefits of sterilization–freedom from worrying about unintended pregnancies and not needing to use other contraceptive methods–against the risks, though minor, of undergoing surgery. Women who need birth control for only a few more years might prefer to use something like an IUD or implant instead.

Additional Health Benefits

Beyond contraception, some birth control methods offer additional health benefits for many women in this age group. For instance, because they contain estrogen, pills, patches, and rings can treat hot flashes, as well as control irregular bleeding. Estrogen can also help increase bone mineral density. And any method that contains progestin lowers the risk of uterine cancer.

It is important for older women who are still at risk for unintended pregnancy to understand that birth control methods they might have thought risky may actually be safe, effective, and beneficial to their overall health. Women will find the best form of birth control to be the one they are motivated to use, whether it is one that requires attention like the pill or patch, or a “set it and forget it” method like an IUD. Choosing the birth control method that suits them best can help perimenopausal women enjoy a healthy, worry-free sex life.

December 1941: 31 Days that Changed America and Saved the World

December 1941: 31 Days that Changed America and Saved the World


December 1941 traces, day-by-day, the most important 31 days in the history of America’s participation in WWII, which snuffed out the lives of millions and changed history forever. From December 1, 1941, until the morning of December 7, 1941, America was at peace and-with the exception of the stubborn and persistent high unemployment of the Great Depression-was a relatively happy country. By the afternoon of the December 7 attack on Pearl Harbor, America was a radically changed country, forever. Its isolationist impulses evaporated, and both major political parties became more or less internationalist. The month also introduced food and gas rationing, Victory Gardens, scrap drives, a military draft, and the conversion of Detroit into an “arsenal of democracy.” From the moment of America’s entry into World War II, people of all kinds, but mostly women looking for work, flooded into the city. Instant apartment buildings sprang up, as did eating and drinking salons, all to the advantage of the massive increase in spending generated by the federal government. December 1941 is a fascinating and meticulously researched look at the American home front-her people, faith, economy, government, and culture.”Craig Shirley’s December 1941 is a riveting narrative history of America in the crucible of the Second World War. A real page turner. Highly recommended.” Douglas Brinkley, Professor of History at Rice University and New York Times bestseller of The Wilderness Warrior

This Election Is More Normal Than It Seems

It has become almost a cliche to note that this election is unlike any other in American history. There has never been a candidate quite like Donald Trump who has broken all the rules of modern campaigning, has offended virtually every religious, racial and ethnic group, as well as women and LGBT people, and who has, in a field where enormous egos are common, perhaps even essential, taken narcissism to a level never before seen in American politics. The historic importance of this campaign is not just due to the bizarre and erratic behavior of the Republican candidate, but also to the Democratic nominee being the first woman ever nominated for President by a major party. Hillary Clinton is poised to become the first woman president in our history. This is a very big deal. However, in some part because of her gender, Clinton, who has run a reasonably smart and disciplined campaign, has remained extremely unpopular. It is only Donald Trump’s historically high negatives that have prevented Hillary Clinton from being the least popular major party nominee in recent history.

Despite all this, one of the most significant, and underreported, aspects of this campaign is how similar it is to most recent presidential elections. While being a woman makes Hillary Clinton different than all of the other candidates the Democratic Party has ever nominated, and her experience makes her more qualified than many recent Democratic nominees, on the issues she fits firmly in the mainstream of her party and does not stand out much from recent previous nominees like Barack Obama, Al Gore, John Kerry or Bill Clinton. She combines a liberal outlook on social issues, and centrist position on many economic issues and positions on foreign policy that reflect bipartisan establishment views. There is nothing very unusual about the Democratic Party nominating a candidate like that.

To suggest that Donald Trump has a cohesive vision or set of policies would be too generous to the real estate and branding dilettante, so it is not so easy to place him in the context of recent Republican nominees or of the GOP more generally. Nonetheless, regardless of the proposals and policies that seem to emerge unexamined and unformed from his mouth, Trump is moving towards a platform that continues the longstanding GOP policy of one-sided class warfare on behalf of the rich, and a resistance to making the US a more equal society for women, non-whites, non-Christians and LGBT people. The Trump campaign has also added a nasty dollop of anti-Semitism to this stew of intolerance that is unusual for today’s GOP.

Most tellingly, the campaign strategies and possible winning coalitions for each of the candidates is almost the same as in every presidential election this century. Clinton is trying to hold together a Democratic coalition of African Americans, Latinos, liberal whites, many of whom are either LGBT or Jewish, and just enough working class white to win. Much has been made of how Donald Trump has been unable to grow his support beyond his party’s white straight Christian base, but to deny that for most of the last twenty or more years the Republican Party has been struggling to win voters who do not fit all of those three categories, is to deny political reality. There have been exceptions, such as George W. Bush’s strong showing among Latinos in 2000, but these have been differences of degree, not of kind. Similarly, this year Clinton has been doing better than most recent Democratic presidential candidates among college educated white women, but will still lose the white vote badly.

Although Trump’s poorly thought out campaign has put states like Georgia in play for the Democratic nominee, the electoral map also will look a lot like it has in recent presidential elections. Trump will sweep most of the south and the heavily white plains states, while Clinton will win most of the mid-Atlantic, northeastern and west coast states. The same states like Colorado, Missouri, Iowa, New Hampshire, Ohio and Florida that have been swing states every year since 2000 will decide the election this year as well.

The desire to portray Donald Trump’s campaign as more of an outlier than it actually is partially grows out of a legitimate bewilderment on the part of the media and others both at Trump’s behavior and at how well he has been doing in this election. However, it is also misleading and understates not the degree of racial polarization in this election, but the degree of racial polarization that has characterized American political life, and partisan politics, for decades now. Trump is a racist who has placed intolerance and bigotry at the center of his campaign in a way that is unique in modern times, but he would not have been able to succeed in this endeavor if the Republican Party had been a more pluralist and diverse institution for the last few decades. Moreover, the similarities between this and previous elections, while perhaps not consistent with more interesting election year narratives, demonstrate the enduring strength of our two party system and how difficult it is, even for a candidate like Trump, to disrupt it.

Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

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. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072.

Why The Humane Society President Changed His Mind About Working With Michael Vick

When NFL star Michael Vick pled guilty to running a dog fighting ring on his property in 2007, he sparked instant and intense outage across the country. Vick’s violence against pit bulls ― he also admitted to killing six to eight dogs by hanging or drowning ― infuriated animal lovers, and one activist who was particularly disgusted was Humane Society president Wayne Pacelle.

As Pacelle told Oprah during an interview for OWN’s “SuperSoul Sunday,” he and the Humane Society were very vocal in their condemnation of Vick’s horrifying acts.

“We demanded his prosecution because what he did to the animals was barbaric. It was despicable,” Pacelle says.

Vick ended up suspended from the NFL and served 19 months in prison. Then, the disgraced athlete reached out to the very people who had written him off the moment his cruelty surfaced publicly.

“One of his people called me just before he was getting out of prison, and they said, ‘Michael would like to work with the Humane Society of the United States on its anti-dog-fighting work,’” Pacelle recalls.

Pacelle, who figured the request was little more than a PR move, said no and hung up the phone. “I thought, ‘OK, this guy wants to do a makeover. He wants to use me for that,’” he says.

But then, Pacelle began to reflect on himself and his mission.

“I said, ‘What am I about at the Humane Society?’ I mean, am I not about changing people for the better? That people who are doing the wrong thing start to move and do the right thing?” he says. “That’s what I do. I’m not just talking to people who are ‘of the faith.’ If I’m doing that, that’s just an echo chamber.”

Pacelle reconsidered Vick’s proposal not just for this reason, but for another powerful benefit as well. 

“I also thought, ‘What if Michael Vick put boots on the ground, sort of talking to these kids in communities where they’re getting pit bulls for the wrong reasons … and told them about the evils of dog fighting?’” Pacelle says. “From a campaigner’s perspective, that’s going to allow me to reach tens of thousands of kids that I would not have an audience with.”

Ultimately, Pacelle adds, he hoped that working with Vick would also send a signal to society that would make people become more conscious of their own behaviors regarding animals, whether that’s through their fashion choices or eating habits.

“I’m sending a signal that we’re all sinners when it comes to animals,” he says.

“SuperSoul Sunday” airs Sundays at 11 a.m. ET on OWN.

Another insight from Pacelle:

Humane Society president explains how animals are “our equals in their capacity to suffer”

Want Your Teen To Have A Healthy Weight? Science Says Shut Up

Experts agree that talking about the need to diet and lose weight is one of the most unhealthy, counterproductive things a parent can do for a teen who is struggling with weight issues.

Now, new guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics formally endorse those findings. In order to prevent obesity and eating disorders, parents should focus less on diets and the scale and emphasize family togetherness and exercise for fitness, not weight loss.

Obesity in adolescents has quadrupled in the past 30 years; in 2012, 21 percent of young people aged 12 to 19 were obese. Teens who are obese are more likely to have bone or joint problems, as well as sleep apnea. They’re also more likely to develop prediabetes, which can lead to Type 2 diabetes. On top of that, teens who are obese are more likely to grow up to become obese adults who will face heightened risks for diseases including cancer and stroke. 

In the midst of this obesity epidemic, eating disorders in children and teens have become a major medical problem. In 2012, eating disorders caused more than 90 percent of all hospitalizations for children aged 10 to 17 years old, according to data from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP). The AAP report was compiled, in part, over growing concern about the unhealthy way teens are trying to lose weight. 

Here are six takeaways from the report, published in the journal Pediatrics. These recommendations are for both doctors and parents, and they apply to all teens — not just those with weight problems.

What not to do:

Never encourage dieting. 

Dieting packs a double whammy because it’s a risk factor for both obesity and eating disorders. Girls who weren’t obese but dieted in the ninth grade were three times were likely to be overweight by 12th grade, compared to girls who didn’t diet. And young people who severely reduced their caloric intake and skipped meals were 18 times more likely to develop an eating disorder than those who didn’t diet. Even just moderate dieting increased a teen’s risk of developing an eating disorder fivefold

”A 3-year-old may not be worried if she’s a bit overweight, whereas an adolescent may try unhealthy weight-loss methods like fasting or diet pills and end up in a vicious circle of more weight gain,” explained lead author Dr. Neville Golden, a pediatrics professor at the Stanford University School of Medicine, in a statement.

Don’t comment on your child’s weight, or even your weight.

What you say matters; teens who talk about weight with their parents are also more likely to diet, binge eat and have unhealthy weight control behaviors, but this risk lessens if the subject matter is about healthy eating behaviors. 

No matter how well-intentioned or seemingly benign you think your comments are, studies show that comments parents make about either their own weight or their child’s weight is linked to a child’s risk of being overweight and developing an eating disorder.

It’s important to note here that a teen doesn’t have to look excessively thin for a parent to be concerned that they might have an eating disorder, said Golden.

“This is a dangerous category of patient, because they’re often missed by physicians,” he said. “At some point, these patients may have had a real need to lose weight, but things got out of control.”

Never tease teens about their weight.

This seems obvious, but bears repeating since a significant minority of overweight teens say they’ve experienced weight-related teasing from friends or family members. Cruel taunts about weight increase a child’s risk of both being overweight and developing eating disorders, and the pain can last into adulthood.  

Dianne Neumark-Sztainer, a researcher who focuses on teen health and nutrition, previously told HuffPost that parents should make their homes a sanctuary where kids feel safe from weight-related teasing. 

“Our children need to know that they can tell us what happened without receiving advice on how to lose weight,” she said.

What to do instead:

Eat together.

While eating meals together as a family has not been shown to reduce obesity rates, it does improve the nutritional content of a child’s diet and it allows parents to model healthy eating behaviors in front of their children, the report said. One study found that families who eat meals together seven or more times per week eat more fruits and vegetables compared to families who never eat together, and for the kids, this increased intake of fruits and veggies persisted into young adulthood. Another study found that eating family dinners most days during the previous years seemed to protect kids from binge eating, dieting and purging behaviors

Focus on a balanced diet and exercise ― not weight loss.

Encourage healthy body image by encouraging kids to eat healthfully and exercise for fitness ― not for weight loss. Teens who have these positive influences are more likely to report being happy with their bodies and less likely to say they had weight-related concerns. Kids who are dissatisfied with their bodies, on the other hand, are more likely to develop eating disorders, diet and have lower levels of physical activity. 

Create a healthy home environment.

While it may seem from the AAP recommendations that a parent is more hemmed in about what they should or shouldn’t say to encourage a healthy lifestyle in children, the truth is that what a parent does says volumes about the best way to approach eating, exercise and body image.

The report says that parents can create a healthy food environment at home by buying and serving fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans and water, while keeping artificial sweeteners, sugar-sweetened drinks and refined carbs away. Parents can also encourage physical activity by keeping TVs out of children’s bedrooms. Indeed, health interventions for both obesity and eating disorders are most effective when the whole family is involved in the treatment — not just the child who needs help.

A whole Mauritian crew of one hundred and fifty is recruited to form the hotel staff of a brand new cruise ship, the Astor which flies the Mauritian flag and is due for a three month maiden voyage from the port of Southampton in England to Genoa in Italy around the South America Coast to Peru and the Caribbean islands. Their difficulty to adapt to European food and misery of seasickness is compensated by the luxury of their new living quarters and fascination seeing so many wonderful places. The cabin stewardesses Mela, Bianca, Nicoleta and other members of the crew tour this great world stunned by the beauty of Norwegian Glaciers and fjords, the greatness of the Amazon River and awed at Jerusalem and the holy land. Souvenirs of unpalatable pizza in Portugal, encounter with rude Spanish horse carriage drivers in Malaga, meeting with a Togolese in Hamburg, a Pakistanis in Montreal are evoked. They befriend Turkish students in Ankara, eat delicious baby octopus salads in the Balearic Islands and dive in cold seas of the Mediterranean and warm lagoons of the Indian Ocean. In French speaking countries they delight in using their familiar Creole with people of Haiti and Jamaica and enjoy the different French accents of Montreal and Quebec in Canada, Casablanca in Morocco, and Dakar in Senegal. They dance in the nightclubs of the world, moving to South American music in Salvador de Bahia and carnival music in Rio de Janeiro, Whitney Houston’s 1987 tube ‘I want to dance with somebody’ in Montreal and Mediterranean rhythms in Greece.

Trump and Clinton Could Do More to Ease Electorate’s Fears about Nuclear Weapons

2016-08-22-1471883144-6883676-The_explosion_of_the_hydrogen_bomb_Ivy_Mike1.jpg

We have a lot to fear from a Donald Trump presidency. Like whether he can be trusted with the nuclear codes. As the New York Times pointed out recently, it is not totally clear where Trump stands on using nuclear weapons. In one interview, he said they’d be a last resort. In another, he hinted that he’d consider using them in a first strike against the Islamic State and wouldn’t rule out using them in Europe.

One thing is clear: Trump has very little understanding of the issue. He has both allegedly and publicly questioned why, since we have them, we cannot use them. He could not answer a simple question about how he would prioritize America’s nuclear arsenal as President.

Members of his own party are concerned. Fifty Republican national security professionals argued in a letter that Trump’s unwillingness or inability to separate “truth from falsehood,” lack of “self-control,” impetuousness, and “erratic behavior” are “dangerous qualities in an individual who aspires to be President and Commander-in-Chief, with command of the U.S. nuclear arsenal.” Sitting Republican Senators have stayed mum about their trust in his fitness to handle U.S nuclear weapons.

A recent YouGov/HuffingtonPost poll finds that it isn’t just former government officials or his opponents who are asking questions. The public doesn’t trust Trump to handle nuclear weapons. That being said, the same poll finds that while Americans trust Hillary Clinton with nuclear weapons more than they do Trump, most still don’t trust her with them either. This begs the question: what, if anything, would increase the public’s confidence on this matter?

An LA Times story highlights that, thanks to their worries about Trump, Americans have woken up to the reality of the U.S. nuclear arsenal in way they haven’t since the end of the Cold War. His candidacy has shed light on the fact that the President has sole authority to launch nuclear weapons, with almost nothing standing in his way.

Both candidates could make one simple pledge that would be a first step in easing the public’s fear: a pledge of no-first-use.

More than two decades after the end of the Cold War, the United States still explicitly reserves the right to use a nuclear weapon first on another country. Of course, it is the only country to have done so.

In the Cold War, the United States believed it needed to threaten use of nuclear weapons to counterbalance the threat of attack by a massive Soviet conventional force. That threat is long gone and there is no reasonable scenario in which Russian conventional military steps would require a U.S. nuclear response. Even during the Cold War, the logic of first-use was questionable. China has long had a policy of no-first-use even though its adversaries have had conventional military superiority.

In today’s landscape, it is perfectly logical for the United States to declare a policy of no-first-use. The United States does not benefit from leaving open the possibility of first-use. If there is any value in nuclear weapons, this is it: they deter an attack by other countries with nuclear weapons. A no-first-use pledge does nothing to change this calculation.

Moreover, taking first-use off the table has several benefits. It would lower the risk of use by accident, miscalculation, or escalation. It may also challenge other nuclear weapons-possessing states to make this pledge, lowering the risk even further. It would also allow the United States to get rid of “first strike” weapons — such as a new nuclear-armed cruise missile – saving taxpayers tens of billions of dollars. A recent op-ed by General James Cartwright and Bruce Blair argues that the policy would allow the U.S. to get rid of our land-based ballistic missiles – saving $ 100 billion in the process.

The masses have been reawakened to the threats that stem from nuclear weapons. Little did they know, many of our dangerous policies haven’t changed much in several decades. Both Clinton and Trump should make a common-sense policy pledge of no-first-use of nuclear weapons. Not only would it lower the risk of nuclear use, it might also gain some of the public’s trust.

Will We Ever Really Know Ourselves?

When the ancient Greeks first uttered the dictum “Know thyself,” they had another choice. They could have said “Know lots of other things.” In one direction the investigation goes inward; in the opposite direction the investigation goes outward. “Know thyself” stands for something that, as far as we know, only human beings possess: self-awareness. “Know lots of other things” also points to a unique human capacity: curiosity about the outside world. I think it’s unarguable that the investigation of the outside world, as pursued by science, has gotten much, much further than self-awareness. Scientists have probed Nature in every dimension, while self-awareness hasn’t even stopped humanity from the impulse to destroy itself.

The gap between “Know thyself” and “Know Lots of other things” was sharply drawn by a current post from the back-page editor of Scientific American, Michael Shermer.  Reading his piece, “At the Boundary of Knowledge,” one comes away with a sense that science is totally triumphant. Not only has science achieved huge successes in acquiring facts and data that led to the overwhelming dominance of technology in the world. It has done something much more difficult. Quoting a recent book, The Big Picture, by Sean Carroll, a physicist from the California Institute of Technology, Shermer claims that now we can be almost certain about how all knowledge is attained. “All of the things you’ve ever seen or experienced in your life — objects, plants, animals, people — are made of a small number of particles, interacting with one another through a small number of forces.”

From this position, which we can call hardline materialism, Shermer reaches the following conclusion: “Once you understand the fundamental laws of nature, you can scale up to planets and people and even assess the probability that God, the soul, the afterlife and ESP exist, which Carroll concludes is very low.” I haven’t read Prof. Carroll’s book, but you can see Shermer, and many of his readers, dusting off their hands with a satisfied sense of “Well, that’s that.” If they are right, science has eliminated the need for “Know thyself” simply by swallowing up the whole issue of self-awareness and packing it away with particles and forces, having scaled up to planets and peoples, God and the soul.

Or there is another possibility, eloquently expressed by great pioneers of quantum physics around a century ago. Max Planck, who named the quantum, wrote, “All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter.” Werner Heisenberg doubled down on that assertion: “The atoms or elementary particles themselves are not real; they form a world of potentialities or possibilities rather than one of things or facts.”

These insights about the mind as a primary force in Nature sound either strange, absurd, imaginary, or metaphysical to anyone pursuing the “Know lots of other things” project that gave rise to science. But they make perfect sense to the “Know thyself” project. It’s obvious on the face of it that no matter how finely you break a piano down into molecules, atoms, and subatomic particles, the facts you gain say nothing about how music is composed, nor can you get there by dissecting Mozart’s brain, which is nothing but a conglomerate of ordinary molecules, atoms, and subatomic particles, also.

In fact, there are scientists who understand the distinction and are trying to resolve it. A growing cadre of investigators has opened the door to a once-forbidden subject, consciousness.  The gist of Shermer’s article is to debunk the existence of paranormal phenomena, a very large category into which he tosses God, the soul, witchcraft, and all manner of superstitions. But such attacks from the stance of scientific atheism are premature. Until we understand how consciousness comes about, both normal and paranormal events are equally mysterious. Two observers, one claiming to see angels, the other to see nebulae and galaxies, derive their experience from totally unknown processes by which the dark, silent, mushy environment of the brain, using completely ordinary electrochemical activity, produces a three-dimensional world.

Maintaining that physics disproves, or reduces to the vanishing point, the very possibility of paranormal phenomena, Shermer’s once-over-lightly of “the horizon where the known meets the unknown” misses the main chance. Instead of beating the dead horse of scientific atheism Shermer should have considered a far more amazing current trend.

I mean the trend that places so-called supernatural phenomena on the same playing field as natural events. Consciousness is the field of all experience including the knowing of experience. This is the only irrefutable fact anyone has to work with. The inside scoop in physics and biology is that a crisis of knowledge has developed when attempting to account for the fundamental definitions of time, space, matter, energy, and life. In a cosmos ruled by dark matter and energy, where no empirical evidence exists about the origin of time, where the multiverse is pure conjecture and no one has the slightest idea how the constants that emerged from the Big Bang created the perfect scenario for life on Earth, Shermer’s brand of stubborn physicalism is not just wheezy — it’s not true to the current situation in science.

It’s time for Shermer to go back to the future and read these seminal physicists like Planck, Heisenberg, and Schrödinger, so that instead of relying upon a primitive belief that all phenomena come down to the interaction of particles, he gets into the game when it’s finally becoming interesting. “Know thyself” may be at a low point compared to ancient Greece, but it’s getting ready for a comeback that promises to change everything.

Rudy Giuliani Claims Online Videos Show Hillary Clinton Is Mentally Ill

Donald Trump campaign adviser and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani asserted that online videos exist that raise serious questions about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s mental health.

In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Giuliani blamed the news media for failing to give attention to supposedly valid questions about Clinton’s psychological fitness.

Asked to explain Clinton’s lead over Trump in the polls, Giuliani argued that she has “an entire media empire” devoted to attacking Trump and ignoring her own foibles.

The media, he claimed, “fails to point out several signs of illness by her. All you’ve got to do is go online.”

Pressed for evidence of this illness by host Shannon Bream, Giuliani doubled down on unnamed internet sources.

“Go online and put down ‘Hillary Clinton illness,’ take a look at the videos for yourself,” he insisted.

In fact, there is no evidence to suggest that Clinton is psychologically unhealthy. Fake medical records circulating online claim a concussion Clinton sustained in December 2012 resulted in lasting brain damage. Clinton’s physician, Lisa Bardack, reaffirmed in an Aug. 16 note that Clinton is in “excellent health.”

Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon responded to Giuliani on Twitter with a reference to Giuliani’s battle with prostate cancer that led him to drop out of the New York Senate race against Clinton in 2000.

Of course, absence of proof notwithstanding, Giuliani was only amplifying a similar smear Trump made on the campaign trail. The GOP nominee questioned Clinton’s “mental and physical stamina” in a speech on Monday.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

Angels and Molecules

The other day my wife, Ana, and I went out for a few hours. When we came back, we parked the car, entered through the downstairs garage door, came up to the first floor and into the living room. Where we saw our intrepid dog Ben, standing on the back of the living room couch, gazing out the window. Waiting.

To explain: Ana is the center of Ben’s universe, the sun around which all his planets revolve. She is his oxygen, his A to Z, his why the universe exists. He was waiting for her.

But Ben has gone deaf. He had somehow missed seeing the car’s approach, and hadn’t heard it come down the drive, or the motorized grind of the garage door opening, or our footsteps up the stairs. As far as he knew, we were still gone.

Moments after I snapped this picture, I clapped, loud enough for him to hear, and he turned his head and saw Ana — and his little dog face broke into an ecstatic OMG, why didn’t someone tell me?! and all was right with the world.

It made me think of Beethoven.

Late in life, Beethoven was attending the premier of his ninth (and final) symphony. “Attending” is perhaps not the right word. Although he was by this time deaf as a board, he strongly felt he should be on hand to guide the musicians along in this huge and enormously challenging composition, so he stood right up there on stage, by the conductor, and gestured like crazy throughout the performance, doing his utmost to shape the right tempi and dynamics and phrasing — even though he could not hear a note.

After the last chord was sounded, the composer stood on the stage, breathing heavily, facing the orchestra. The audience, who had never heard anything like this before (nor, for that matter, had anyone on the planet), erupted into raucous, deafening applause.

The composer was oblivious. He had no idea anyone was even clapping. The mezzo-soprano soloist had to approach him (with tears in her eyes, and can you blame her?) and tug on his arm to get him to turn around and see the thunderous response his music has evoked.

This got me thinking:

What if we’re all like Ben and Beethoven?

What if we are surrounded by all the applause, but just don’t hear it? If the center of our universe, the thing we love most, has already arrived and is standing there watching us, but we just don’t know it yet?

I remember as a teenager, taking a walk one morning in my neighborhood, going blocks and blocks in my quiet suburban town, a Sunday, hardly anyone about. I’d been reading about physics and metaphysics and different thinkers’ understandings of how reality was assembled. I remember stopping, standing, and gazing out along a path down to a field.

It suddenly hit me that I was surrounded by billions, trillions, quadrillions of molecules, atoms, particles, all buzzing and humming and soaring in orbits around each other, vibrating like mad. I was a musician and student of acoustics, and I knew this basic fact of life: vibration makes noise. I was standing in the midst of the most colossal symphony imaginable. I just couldn’t hear it.

Although for those few moments, it felt as if I almost did.

There is an ancient tradition in Bali which holds that a gamelan orchestra, that most mesmerizing of human musical ensembles, doesn’t “make” its music. No, say the Balinese, that rippling stream of rhythm and melody is already happening, already going on, all around us, all the time. The job of the gamelan musicians is not to create the music, but simply to catch it, like a crystal set picking up radio waves and stepping them down to audible form.

What if we are surrounded by symphonies?

What if our ancestors, departed parents, and all those loved ones who have shuffled off before us are in fact standing right beside us, beaming with pleasure at our antics, cheering us on?

What if throngs of angels are stomping and hooting and laughing and shouting, exuberant as a sold-out Bruce Springsteen auditorium just to be there watching us, applauding our every mundane move like a chorus of thunderclaps?

You know, I think they may be.

You can almost hear them, can’t you?

These Underwater Yoga Photos Prove The Practice Is Truly Magical

Looking for a reason to hit the yoga mat today? Take a gander at these stunning photos.

The surreal images, which were snapped by photographer Elena Kalis, feature yoga instructor Britta Jade as she masterfully executes yoga poses under water. They’re a truly majestic display of how yoga can be both athletic and a work of art.

The photos are an inspirational reminder that the practice can be one of the best ways to move your body. Research shows yoga can reduce stress and lower your risk for heart disease. It also can improve your sleep and boost your brain function. Not to mention the fact that yoga can be an excellent form of strength training, which can help maintain a healthy weight.

While not everyone can exactly run off to the crystal shores of a remote island to nail these moves, there are some added perks to taking your yoga practice to the water. Studies suggest being near the ocean can make you calmer and more creative. The sea also puts your brain in a more meditative state.

If you’ve been slacking on a yoga routine (or hesitant to try one at all), take a look at the pictures below. Then check out these healthy reasons to prioritize the practice for additional motivation.

Nirvana: achieved.
