The turkey "is going to be ready in 30 minutes" … for the past hour-and-a-half. 3. I better get off the couch and get a good seat. 4. I don't want to sit next to Uncle Ralph.

    On a recent trip to Las Vegas, I found myself observing many people who were dressed for their nights on the town as if they were starring in a movie or TV show about Vegas. They wore shiny faux-gold sunglasses at night (pretty sure they don’t do this at home). They left three or so buttons undone on their shirts (can you imagine that kind of look at your office?). They wore little black dresses and super high heels and they carried purses that glittered like warfare. As judgmental as I like to be, I am enamored with the idea because in all cases, people were allowing themselves to play, to…

    I had the pleasure of interviewing Brandon Webb, CEO of Force 12 Media about many things: his writing, his web empire, his books, his view on ISIS, and a lot more. His background, such as it is, includes having run the US Navy SEAL sniper training program and training several of the world’s deadliest snipers. What ended up being interesting to me is that Brandon is often brought onto shows to comment as a US Navy SEAL, but they tend to underutilize his perspective, or ask general questions like, “Boy, it sure is hard to get through your training as a SEAL, isn’t it?”…

    Robin Oxford-Davis
    24 Nov 2014 | 4:27 am
    The holidays are coming. This is the time of year when we’re reminded to be kind and good and most of all, grateful. If you’re reading this, then you’re probably like most of us; you have a lot to be grateful for. We hear all the time about the power of gratitude and how it contributes to a happy, healthy and purposeful life. But realistically, if you’re like me, you probably spend far more time complaining about what you don’t have and what’s not right, than you do about what you do have and what’s going well. So why is that? Why is it so hard to stay in a conscious state of…

  • 4 Benefits of Mind Dumping to Help You Sleep

    In today’s world, there’s so much constantly going on. We’re constantly multitasking away, getting a million different things done in a minimal amount of time. This has created such a fast paced society that more and more people are being diagnosed with anxiety disorders. More anxiety means less sleep. Less sleep means the worse off you will be in the morning and day ahead. It doesn’t have to be this way, though. I keep a notepad and pen next to my bed every night.

  • Eat Amazing (and Healthy) for $50/Month

    Shawn Michael Hartwell

    I changed my nutrition lifestyle to one that contains significant amounts of both meat and vegetables a few months ago. I was shocked when my grocery bill for the month went down and I could get by on 30$ and sometimes 50$ a month. $50 a month is obviously minimalist grocery – it is not for the faint of heart and those who don’t want to live the bare minimum. My grocery spending decreasing so dramatically took me by surprise because the research I’ve done warned me eating healthy would be expensive. This is what I told myself and held as my belief system for years. When…

    How many struggles have you encountered this week? How many times have you bounced back quickly from each one? Struggles are a part of everyday life, especially if you’re in sales. Each time you walk in a new door, you don’t know who you’re going to face, how you should address their concerns about your product, or what rebuttals you need to have ready. Living with so many variables is a touchy way to live. Yes, you do your homework, but until you’re in the trenches and have come face-to-face with their situation, you don’t really know who they are or what they need to hear. Then,…

  • We microwaved a turkey and it was actually pretty good

    Brian Koerber
    25 Nov 2014 | 1:46 pm
    Although microwaving a turkey isn't the ideal way to cook poultry, the USDA approves of the cooking method. It cooks quickly and is extremely easy Disasters happen, ovens break and some people don't have the luxury of owning an oven (college students, we're looking at you,) so in a pinch, a microwave can actually save the day and deliver a turkey that is surprisingly edible. Just be sure you read your microwave's manual to ensure it can handle a small turkey (8-10 pounds.)

    The Times Higher Education has an article on post-publication peer review, and whether it will survive legal challenges The legal action launched by a US scientist who claims that anonymous comments questioning his science cost him a lucrative job offer has raised further questions about the potential for post-publication peer review to replace pre-publication review. The article chimes with comments made by several prominent Psychologists who have been at the centre of controversies and decried the way their work has been discussed outside of the normal channels of the academic journals.

    I’ve been puzzling over this tweet from Jeff Rouder: Surely, I thought, psychology is built out of effects. What could be wrong with focussing on testing which ones are reliable? But I think I’ve got it now. The thing about effects is that they show you – an experimental psychologist – can construct a situation where some factor you are interested in is important, relative to all the other factors (which you have managed to hold constant). To see why this might be a problem, consider this paper by Tsay (2013): “Sight over sound in the judgment of music…

I was initially annoyed at the fact that the documentary puts both of these in the same category but it’s based on the interesting premise that hotlines – whether for mental health, sex or supporting members of a particular marginalised community – often involve the common component of lonely people reaching out to connect with a stranger, briefly, through conversation.

    Once on the brink of extinction with only a few fish remaining, Snake River sockeye salmon are regaining the fitness they need to rebuild wild populations. A new analysis shows that naturally spawned offspring of fish saved by a hatchery program are now surviving to return at increasing rate -- high enough to not only sustain the population but also to rebuild it.

"The findings highlight the power of expectations to drive changes in the brain," said a co-author of the study. "The research highlights important links between psychology and medicine."

  • Genetics Suggest Autism Isn’t Just One Disorder—It’s Hundreds

    Sarah DeWeerdt, SFARI
    25 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    Each child with autism is different from the next. One approach rapidly gaining momentum makes sense of this diversity by grouping children together based on their genetics, then looking for patterns in their symptoms. The long-term aim: personalized treatments for each subtype of autism. The post Genetics Suggest Autism Isn’t Just One Disorder—It’s Hundreds appeared first on WIRED.

    Somewhere dark and icy on a comet 320 million miles away, the history-making, comet-bouncing Philae spacecraft is sleeping. Its batteries are depleted and there isn’t enough sunlight to recharge. But while the lander finished its primary job, collecting invaluable data on the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the Rosetta mission is far from over. For many scientists, the excitement is just beginning. The post What’s Next for the Rosetta Mission and Comet Exploration appeared first on WIRED.

  • Siblings with Severe Mental Illness: Staying in Touch — And in the Loop

    Sarah Newman, MA
    25 Nov 2014 | 11:25 am
    It’s difficult to know where you stand when your sibling is diagnosed with a severe mental illness. Their treatment can take up so much time and their symptoms can be so encompassing that there may not be a lot of room for you, let alone your relationship. The dynamics of the family change after a diagnosis and you may feel like more of a caregiver than a brother or a sister. My older brother Pat was diagnosed with schizophrenia eight years ago. He was 25 years old. At that point we were already living on our own. He was finished with college and working full-time. We had always been close…
  • Navigating the Holidays When You Have Depression

    Margarita Tartakovsky, M.S.
    25 Nov 2014 | 7:27 am
    For people with depression, the holidays can be a challenging time. People with the illness “tend to have a negative view of themselves and their lives,” said Selena C. Snow, Ph.D, a clinical psychologist who specializes in treating depression in Rockville, Md. “If they have overly idealized beliefs about what the holidays should look like, the resulting discrepancy can be very difficult.” They may feel inadequate or like their lives are lacking, she said. Receiving others’ holiday cards and family newsletters — where people share only their happy news — can contribute…

    In a few days, it will be Thanksgiving here in the US. The irony is that while many of us are gearing up for this day of gratitude, we’re probably not feeling it. Prepping turkeys, and getting ready for Black Friday and the litany of holidays that come with forced family gatherings often equates to more moments of grumbling and thanklessness than anything else. But if you’re bemoaning your current situation and are on the verge of giving into unhealthy habits to feed your hurt, vulnerable and exhausted self, stop. Fuel yourself with this instead. I attended Oprah’s The Life…
  • How to Build a New Habit — And Make it Stick

    25 Nov 2014 | 3:22 am
    Are you a master of a skill? Perhaps you’re fluent in a language. A world-class pianist. A master craftsman in carpentry. If you are, it’s not necessarily a result of your income, personal circumstances, upbringing, or any other variable. It’s a result of something a lot more powerful, something you have complete control over. It’s a result of habit. The people who have mastered their businesses, their love lives, their health or any other area have done so because they have mastered their habits. But there is a price to pay: It requires a lot of hard work and years of practice. A lot…
  • Getting Past Those Awkward Moments — in Baseball and in Marriage

    Marcia Naomi Berger, MSW, LCSW
    24 Nov 2014 | 4:20 pm
    You might not expect to pick up marriage tips from a baseball team. Yet as my home team, the San Francisco Giants, moved toward the World Championship, I was struck by how they showed similar character traits to those I encourage in my couples therapy clients. Some spouses I work with have explosive personalities. They become verbally abusive when their partner doesn’t do what they want. Such impulsive reactions harm their marital relationship. In sports and other competitive games, we call someone who acts this way a “poor sport.” Good sports are respectful, kind, and humble.
