Trump REALLY Wants You To Come To The Inauguration

[ad_1] We’re so excited to see 3 Doors Down at Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday, but apparently not everyone is. The president-elect is apparently having some problems getting people jazzed about Inauguration Day festivities.  Planners for the event are estimating that as many as 900,000 people will attend the Jan. 20 event, according to NBC Washington. An estimated 1.8 million people showed up for Barack Obama’s first inauguration. Because Trump loves everything to be YUGE, he’s taken to Facebook in an attempt to rally his fellow Americans. Marina Cockenberg, director of digital for “The Tonight Show,” tweeted about an inauguration ad she found Monday evening. Upon clicking the “Why Am I Seeing This Ad” button, she discovered that Trump specifically wanted to “reach people ages 27 and older who live in New York.”  imagine being so disliked that 4 days before your inauguration you start paying to send desperate FB ad invites to “person, 27+” pic.twitter.com/UQ0m4D7vg4 — mah ree nah (@marinarachael) January…

You Should Be Weary Of Magazines’ ‘New Year’ Diets

[ad_1] In their January issue, Self magazine partnered with model and body positivity advocate Iskra Lawrence, who has been open about her experience with disordered eating and is a spokesperson for the National Eating Disorder Association. There was one problem: The feature paired Lawrence’s commentary on acceptance and healthy eating with a calorie-restrictive meal plan. It was a move many ED advocates took issue with. “I’m just surprised to see [a diet plan] coming from you as a body positive advocate,” Megan Crabbe, a body positive blogger, wrote in an open letter to Lawrence following the publication. “Your work promoting ED recovery reaches millions, and so many of the people who are currently struggling with an eating disorder see you as the ultimate inspiration to fight their way out,” she continued. “You have a lot of influence over some very impressionable people, and what you’ve given them, quite frankly, is poison.” Self apologized and swiftly removed the meal plan to leave only the…

America’s Top Fortune Cookie Writer Is Quitting

[ad_1] Donald Lau has been writing the messages on America’s fortune cookies for the past 30 years, but a severe case of writer’s block has caused him to pass his pen. The chief fortune writer at Brooklyn-based Wonton Food Inc., the largest manufacturer of noodles, wrappers, and fortune cookies in the United States, has been training his successor for the past six months, according to Time magazine. “I used to write 100 a year, but I’ve only written two or three a month over the past year,” he told the magazine. Lau also serves as the company’s chief financial officer, so he will continue to work in that capacity when the new writer takes over. The history of fortune cookies in America is quite murky, as both Chinese and Japanese immigrant populations have claimed ownership, writes Smithsonian Magazine’s Jesse Rhodes. Author Jennifer 8. Lee investigated the popular biscuit in her book, The Fortune Cookie Chronicles, and found that the cookies are likely of Japanese…

Southwest Plane Turns Pink Lights On For Women’s March Participants

[ad_1] Things got lit on a Southwest Airlines plane carrying men and women to the Women’s March on Washington.  Two women shared pictures of their Thursday flight, which turned on pink lights apparently in support of its passengers to mark Saturday’s special occasion.  “When your Southwest flight crew celebrate a plane full of kickass women and men going to the Women’s March by lighting it up #lit #womensmarchonwashington #lovetrumpshate,” Instagram user @kpmagnolia wrote in the caption of her photo of the colorful pink lights. Twitter user Jennifer Moran (@jgmoran2) also shared a photo of the flight and told NBC what it was like to be on the plane.  “It was unexpected and unannounced,” Moran said. “There was no announcement explicitly from the staff and no one screamed this is for the March. Nothing, just spontaneous and everyone knew exactly why they were cheering.”  In a statement provided to Mashable, a representative for Southwest spoke about the pink lights:  “While we’re…

Despite Rising Rates Of Depression, It’s Doubtful We’ll See New Drugs

[ad_1] LONDON (Reuters) – It is likely to be at least 10 years before any new generation of antidepressants comes to market, despite evidence that depression and anxiety rates are increasing across the world, specialists said on Wednesday. The depression drug pipeline has run dry partly due to a “failure of science” they said, but also due to big pharma pulling investment out of research and development (R&D) in the neuroscience field because the profit potential is uncertain. “I’d be very surprised if we were to see any new drugs for depression in the next decade. The pharmaceutical industry is simply not investing in the research because it can’t make money from these drugs,” Guy Goodwin, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Oxford, told reporters at a London briefing. Andrea Cipriani, a consultant psychiatrist at Oxford, said such risk aversion was understandable given uncertain returns and the approximately billion dollar cost of developing and bringing a new drug…

11 Tips For Protesting With Kids From Veteran Moms

[ad_1] Olivia Higgins The Women’s March on Washington and other protests happening this will be the first time many families attend a rally. Olivia Higgins, founder of Queerly Elementary, and other parents have 11 tips to help families navigate the process of attending a protest. 1. Explain why you are protesting. Discuss with your family values with your children and how these are motivating you to attend the march. Many marches or demonstrations have written mission statements that can be used to frame your discussion. Focus on what you are marching FOR instead of what you are marching against. Saying, “We are demonstrating against unjust wars,” can be turned into, “We are marching because we believe in peace.” Marching for a cause may make children feel more connected to the goals of the march. Bear in mind that children often misunderstand what they are hear and take things literally. If a child hears, “we must fight against this injustice,” they…

I’m Not My Marital Status

[ad_1] I’m just like you. I really am. But upon learning I am divorced, please don’t mischaracterize me or determine that I am any different than you. Our value systems are not worlds apart– even though one of us might be married and the other divorced. We are of the same species, still. I have learned over the past few years it is a common misconception that, because one’s marriage ended, the parties involved must lack the ability or willingness to hold a commitment. That they didn’t step it up. The broad generalization of who divorcees are, at times, supersedes the very specific, individualized circumstances which led to the divorce. Yes, I did get divorced. My marriage did not play out as I had hoped or planned and its ending is the exact opposite as I would have wished at the time. The demise of my marriage and subsequent rebuilding of my unforeseen, new life wreaked havoc on me for a…
