“How the ‘Brainy’ Book Became a Publishing Phenomenon”

“At a time when politics is more furious and fragmented than ever, when technology is colonising our everyday existence, when medicine is reshaping our lives, we still look to books to make sense of things, to feel ourselves part of a great communal effort to understand our age. These are serious times and they demand serious, intelligent and challenging books.”

“Why We Should Learn to Embrace Failure”

“No plan survives first contact with the enemy,” he writes. “What matters is how quickly the leader is able to adapt.”

“Why Schools Are Banning Yoga”

My perspective: fear.

The following article presents the religious intrusion perspective, but even before reading the article, this is the truth I know. When I do yoga for my health and well being, as a Christian, I am taking care of the temple (my body) God gave me because that is what I am supposed to do.

Plus I do yoga for me because the movements and poses relax me, stimulates my body and its organs for good health, and helps to prevent injuries by keeping my body limber and flexible. Proof is I am sixty four, healthy, and active. I take no medications and I have more flexibility than people much younger than me, as noted by a yoga instructor a few months ago when I participated in a few of her yoga sessions.

A perspective to consider is anyone who is fearful of yoga needs to examine what they are truly fearful of because yoga, like anything we do, becomes what we choose it to be. Yes, for some it is a spiritual practice, but for others, yoga is simply one important way we take care of ourselves simply because it works, like walking.

Therefore, please don’t throw out yoga because children need to learn early how to best take care of themselves and yoga as a health practice excels. And do not worry if a child choose to see yoga as a spiritual practice–remember everyone has the right to choose their own beliefs. And if your belief brings you peace and joy, your children will come back to the belief after they have explored other beliefs, so do not fear, but rejoice in the benefits to be reaped by all, especially their good health.

“How Giving Up Refined Sugar Changed My Life”

“Things changed radically on the second day. Even though I had had a filling breakfast and lunch (two oranges, eggs, and whole-grain rice with vegetables), around 2 p.m. I suddenly felt like I had been hit by a truck. I felt foggy and had a headache, which never happens on my normal diet. This fogginess and the headaches continued intermittently for the next two to three days. During that time, I had intense cravings for both soda and sugary treats. On the third day, I actually got the shakes for a period of time. It was very, very hard not to have something sweet.”

“As you were not feeding your addiction, your brain was shouting out to have sugar to satisfy its cravings,” says Rebecca Boulton, a nutritional therapist who specializes in hormonal health and sugar cravings, whom I contacted to help me make sense of what was happening in my body.”
