Donald Trump’s Sniffles Were A Major Talking Point Of The Debate. Again.

Donald Trump’s sniffles just won’t go away.  Sniffles punctuated the GOP nominee’s performance in the first presidential debate, and he succumbed to them once again during Sunday night’s battle with Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. Not long after the debate started, the #sniffles hashtag began trending worldwide on Twitter. Some diligent tweeters even tried to keep […]

What You Can Learn From Talking To A 90-Year Old

Pretty good shape for 90 – must be those G&Ts Last week we celebrated my father-in-law’s 90th birthday. There was a time when even getting to 90 was a major achievement, and if someone were lucky enough to make it to 90, they were generally frail, wheelchair bound and barely aware of the celebration going […]

It Looks Like Donald Trump Is Done Talking About Birther Stuff

MIAMI ― On Friday evening, Donald Trump talked about how terrible American inner cities are; he talked about how many jobs his energy plan would produce; he talked about how hard he campaigns. What he didn’t talk about was his statement earlier that day declaring ― after five years of falsely claiming otherwise ― that […]

Friday Talking Points — As The Turd Tornado Turns…

Some weeks, it’s tough coming up with a subtitle for these columns. Some weeks, not so much. This is one of the latter, because the juxtaposition of a colorful (to say the least) description of Donald Trump with a soap opera’s title just naturally presented itself. The quote comes in response to Trump’s campaign shakeup, […]

Friday Talking Points — GOP Anti-Trump Rants

This column has always loved a good rant. Most of the time, we provide our own rant at the end of the column, on a subject too big to be contained in talking points. This week, we provide a number of rants from Republicans about their very own party’s presidential nominee. Yes, it’s only August […]

Why Fitness Pros Need To Stop Talking About ‘Bikini Bodies’

Getting real about powerful results a mindful fitness practice can actually impart. I remember my first “selfie.” It was a hot summer day and I was preparing to take my kids, ages 7 and 1 year old to the beach. I dug to the bottom of a bin of pre-pregnancy clothes, I found a two-piece […]

The One Factor In The Brexit Vote No One Is Talking About

The U.K.’s historic vote to leave the European Union, many people believe, was driven by opinions on immigration.  And it likely was influenced by the way people are psychologically wired. Analysts on Friday repeatedly cited voters’ emotions as the driver of Brexit. Many people may have voted with fear or anger as their primary motivator, […]

Talking to Myself

Before I started my transformation, the conversations I had with myself consisted of: I would like to… It would be nice if… What if… If only… I can’t… I wish… I started listening to the conversations I had with myself and realized how they made me feel. After a conversation with myself, I often felt […]

Let’s Get Men Talking About Suicide

This article may contain triggers — please read with caution. Male suicide is one of the greatest problems of our time and yet one of the least talked about topics. What many don’t realize is that suicide is the leading cause of death in men under 45 in the U.K., the second leading among male […]

Friday Talking Points — Is Trump Bigger Than Liam Neeson?

It’s been a wild and crazy week — so much so, in fact, that we’re going to start with a quote we never thought would become appropriate to use in a column about politics. It’s from the movie Taken, where Liam Neeson’s character utters the classic line: “Now’s not the time for dick-measuring.” Yes, that […]

Friday Talking Points — Every Sulfurous Belch

OK, I fully admit I stole that title. Well, maybe not “stole,” since I’m about to give it proper credit, but it certainly wasn’t my own original idea. The line comes from George Will, and (of course) refers to Donald Trump. Part of the fun for Democrats this summer has been watching the angst of […]

Friday Talking Points — Trump’s Immigration Roundup

Another week has gone by, and Donald Trump remains the Republican frontrunner in the presidential nomination race. We’ve noticed that all the inside-the-Beltway pundits who so confidently predicted Trump’s imminent and inevitable downfall are now slowly starting to revisit their predictions. This is making them extremely nervous, of course. Some are still finding solace in […]

Friday Talking Points — The Rehabilitation Of Golf In The GOP

We’re going to begin today with a wrapup of the week that was in the presidential campaigns, and as befitting his status as the Republican frontrunner, we’re going to start with Donald Trump (if you’re sick of hearing about Trump, just skip down eight or ten paragraphs and continue reading). Trump is helicoptering in to […]

Friday Talking Points — Always Twirling For Freedom!

It’s officially a holiday since tomorrow’s the nation’s birthday and all, but since this column took a vacation last week, we thought we’d better get a new column out today. After all, it’s been an eventful two weeks! Right after we published our last column, the Confederate battle flag debate erupted in a major way. […]

Friday Talking Points — Racist Domestic Terrorism

It’s been a rollercoaster week in the political world, beginning with Hillary Clinton shifting the gears of her campaign by holding her first big rally, which was immediately followed by the man we’re going to call “Jeb! Bush!” finally officially announcing his own candidacy. For those who are wondering, yes, we here at the Friday […]

Rick Santorum Wants Pope Francis To Stop Talking About Climate Change

Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum says he loves Pope Francis, but he wants the pontiff to stop talking about climate change. Santorum, a devout Catholic, told Philadelphia radio host Dom Giordano on Monday that the pope should “leave science to the scientists.” His comments come as the pope, who earned a master’s degree in chemistry […]

Friday Talking Points — Is That Your Final Answer, Jeb?

Jeb Bush, is that your final answer? Sure you wouldn’t like to phone a friend, or maybe just get the audience’s reaction first? Heh. OK, we fully admit that we didn’t come up with that snarky line ourselves. Dana Milbank of the Washington Post took the prize in the “snarky ways to describe Bush’s awful […]

Talking to Zeus

Talking to Zeus Jane Shaw was working as a volunteer in Chelsea’s famous Physic Garden when she earned a placement to work for a year on a very special organic garden in Greece.

Friday Talking Points — Live, From the Moon

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams (or, as we affectionately refer to him, “BriWi”) was ruthlessly mocked online this week, after a war story he told turned out to be a complete fabrication. Our headline today refers to the funniest mockery we’ve yet seen on the subject, titled “That one live shot I did from […]

Friday Talking Points — Sarah Palin, Under the Republican Bus

That headline certainly does promise a large amount of schadenfreude over the misfortunes of a certain former vice presidential nominee (and half-term governor of Alaska), doesn’t it? Well, that’ll all have to wait for the end of this column, where we will be supplanting our normal talking points section with a few choice conservative reviews […]

(Inadequately) Talking to My Kid About Death

This past year, our family has experienced the death of my grandma and the recent deaths of both my husband’s father and our family dog, Sammy.

This Video Is Proof That No Emoji Can Beat Talking Face To Face IRL

It turns out an ability to read between the lines of text messages has lived within us all along. However, it has nothing to do with our phones themselves. It requires putting our thumbs away, detaching our gazes from the screens, and engaging in a conversation physically and emotionally — not just mentally. This basic […]
