Changing the Conversation: Get Out of the Cage of Age by Christiane Northrup, M.D. [Audio EXPIRES May 16th]

Leave a comment

Hello Everyone:
– 
– 
I first came across Dr. Christiane Northrup last year in an interview with Oprah Winfrey on Super Soul Sunday.  Christiane had just released her latest bookGoddesses Never Age. (see below)  
I have since given this book away to several friends for their birthdays,  Please find an audio from a virtual Well-Being and Health Summit taking place below.  

NOTE:  The audio expires 11:59pm on Monday, May 16th.   

Christiane Northrup, M.D., 66 dances
 The Tango
Released February 2015
Though we talk about wanting to “age gracefully,” the truth is that when it comes to getting older, we’re programmed to dread an inevitable decline: in our health, our looks, our sexual relationships, even the pleasure we take in living life. But as Christiane Northrup, M.D., shows us in this New York Times best-selling guide, we have it in us to make growing older an entirely different experience, both for our bodies and for our souls.
In chapters that blend personal stories and practical exercises with the latest research on health and aging, Dr. Northrup lays out the principles of ageless living, from rejecting processed foods to releasing stuck emotions, from embracing our sensuality to connecting deeply with our Divine Source. Explaining that the state of our health is dictated far more by our beliefs than by our biology, she works to shift our perceptions about getting older and show us what we are entitled to expect from our later years—no matter what our culture tries to teach us to the contrary—including:
·         Vibrant good health
·         A fulfilling sex life
·         The capacity to love without losing ourselves
·         The ability to move our bodies with ease and pleasure
·         Clarity and authenticity in all our relationships—especially the one we have with ourselves
“Taking all the right supplements and pills, or getting the right procedure done, isn’t the prescription for anti-aging,” Dr. Northrup explains. “Agelessness is all about vitality, the creative force that gives birth to new life.” Goddesses Never Age is filled with tools and inspiration for bringing vitality and vibrancy into your own ageless years—and it all comes together in Dr. Northrup’s 14-day Ageless Goddess Program, your personal prescription for creating a healthful, soulful, joyful new way of being at any stage of life.

ADDENDUM – May 9th – President Obama Addresses Water Crisis In Flint, MI – May 4th – [FULL SPEECH]

Leave a comment

Hello Everyone:
– 
I see Governor Rick Synder changed his plans and decided it was in his best interest to meet with President Obama at the airport.  I’m sure money for Flint, MI had something to do with his decision.  
– 
Apparently, Governor Synder and Flint Mayor Karen Weaver met with the president in President Obama’s limo (the beast) to discuss the situation.
– 
Governor Synder gave a 2 minute speech that was booed by the Flint crowd prior to President Obama taking the stage and delivering an update and inspirational  message regarding the water crisis in the video below.

Hello Everyone:
– 
– 

President Obama is visiting Flint, Michigan next Wednesday, May 4th,  The federal government has employed support (financially. etc.) assisting and solving the Flint Water Crises.  Of course, Governor Snyder will not be attending and I find it convenient and strange that the governor has never met with President Obama when the president visits Michigan.

Subject: What does Ikiru, Erin Brockovich and A Civil Action have in Common?

Hello Everyone:
With all the talk regarding the Flint Water Crisis; I recalled three outstanding films regarding an environmental specifically water contamination crisis.
All three deal with an environmental crisis that transforms the main character in each film.
The first one Ikiru 1952 causes Mr. Watanabe to examine his life of working 30 years as a stagnant bureaucrat.
AddendumApril 28th
Ikiru (the title of the movie means “To Live”).  Director Akira Kurosawa was one of Japan’s most critically acclaimed directors.  Kurosawa directed brilliant actor Toshiro Mifune in many of his films.

===============

The third one Erin Brockovich 2000 gives Erin Brockovich a way to develop her potential beyond her past as a former beauty queen and currently an unemployed single mother of three children.
In the second one A Civil Action 1998; attorney Jan Schlichtmann has complete transformation from a cocky successful personal injury attorney to a tenacious, caring, attorney willing to lose it all in order to do the what is right.
View the movie trailer for A Civil Action below.
– 

I enjoyed all of these superb films; however, if you can only view one; I recommend A Civil Action for the thriller aspect of Jan Schilchtmann’s  journey.

Toshiro Mifune plays a bureaucrat Mr. Watanabe in 
Ikiru, director Akira Kurosawa_1952 
 –
 Mr. Watamabe through his tireless and persistent efforts, he is able to overcome the stagnation of bureaucracy and turn a mosquito-infested cesspool into a children’s playground.
 John Travolta portrays plaintiff’s attorney Jan Schlichtmann
and opposing counsel Jerry Facher played by Robert Duvall_1998
A Civil Action is a 1998 American drama film that was directed by Steven Zaillian, that stars John Travolta (as plaintiff’s attorney Jan Schlichtmann) and opposing counsel representing Beatrice Foods and W.R. Grace and Company attorney Jerry Facher played by Robert Duvall, and that is based on the book of the same name by Jonathan Harr. Both the book and the film are based on a true story of a court case about environmental pollution that took place in Woburn, Massachusetts, in the 1980s.
– 
It’s Schlichtmann’s search for purpose and his journey toward redemption after his colossal abdication of moral sense at the film’s outset. That journey is troubled and arduous, and he has few compunctions with endangering the livelihoods of his partners in the process.
Julie Roberts portrays Erin Brockovich_2000

Erin Brockovich is a 2000 biographical film directed by Steven Soderbergh and written by Susannah Grant. The film is a dramatization of the true story of Erin Brockovich, portrayed by Julia Robertswho fought against the energy corporation Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E). The film was a box office success, and critical reaction was positive.

Roberts won the Academy Award, BAFTA, Golden Globe Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, and various critics awards for Best Actress. The film itself was also nominated for Best Picture and Best Director for Steven Soderbergh at the 73rd Academy Awards. He won that year, but for directing the film Traffic.   Early in the film the real Erin Brockovich has a cameo appearance as a waitress named Julia.

We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis, writes Arianna Huffington,the co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post. And this has profound consequences – on our health, our job performance, our relationships and our happiness. What is needed, she boldly asserts, is nothing short of a sleep revolution.  Only by renewing our relationship with sleep can we take back control of our lives.

In her bestseller Thrive, Arianna wrote about our need to redefine success through well-being, wisdom, wonder, and giving. Her discussion of the importance of sleep as a gateway to this more fulfilling way of living struck such a powerful chord that she realized the mystery and transformative power of sleep called for a fuller investigation.

The result is a sweeping, scientifically rigorous, and deeply personal exploration of sleep from all angles, from the history of sleep, to the role of dreams in our lives, to the consequences of sleep deprivation, and the new golden age of sleep science that is revealing the vital role sleep plays in our every waking moment and every aspect of our health – from weight gain, diabetes, and heart disease to cancer and Alzheimer’s.

In The Sleep Revolution, Arianna shows how our cultural dismissal of sleep as time wasted compromises our health and our decision-making and undermines our work lives, our personal lives — and even our sex lives. She explores all the latest science on what exactly is going on while we sleep and dream.  She takes on the dangerous sleeping pill industry, and all the ways our addiction to technology disrupts our sleep. She also offers a range of recommendations and tips from leading scientists on how we can get better and more restorative sleep, and harness its incredible power.

In today’s fast-paced, always-connected, perpetually-harried and sleep-deprived world, our need for a good night’s sleep is more important – and elusive — than ever. The Sleep Revolution both sounds the alarm on our worldwide sleep crisis and provides a detailed road map to the great sleep awakening that can help transform our lives, our communities, and our world.

Relax, Sleep & Enjoy!

Leave a comment

¡Hola a todos!
(Hello Everyone!)

In Buenos Aires, the President and First Family will meet with the newArgentine President, Mauricio Macri, to discuss President Macri’s reform agenda and recognize his contributions to the defense of human rights in the region.  The President will deepen efforts to increase cooperation between our governments in a range of areas, including trade and investment, renewable energy and climate change, and citizen security.  It has been nearly two decades since the last bilaterally focused visit by a U.S. President to Argentina, Latin America’s third largest country.

Tango is a dance that has influences from European and African culture.  Dances from the candombe ceremonies of former slave peoples helped shape the modern day Tango. The dance originated in lower-class districts of Buenos Aires and Montevideo.
The music derived from the fusion of various forms of music from Europe.  The word “tango” seems to have first been used in connection with the dance in the 1880s, possibly related to the Latin word “tangere” but more likely related to the African slave word “tango” (drum or dance place).
