Situations Where You Should Avoid Using the Word ‘Pussy’

SHOPPING DEALS UPDATE:


The Word “Flattering” Is the #1 Enemy of Feminism Today

The worst compliment, in my eyes, isn’t “bubbly.” It isn’t even the auspicious “such a character.” The most backhanded, undermining and secretly mean thing you can say to somebody is to describe their sartorial choices as “flattering.” Not only is this a boring waste of words, but it also very much subtly implies that something about the person you’re offering probably unsolicited comment on needs said flattery; that without flattery this person is rendered in some way unacceptable.

And, not to turn this into a feminist issue (just kidding), you never, ever hear the word flattering in relation to a boy. Never are they applauded for covering up a balding head or concealing a could-be-pregnancy belly. So why are we so very used to hearing it in terms of the girls and their constantly perceived and pointed-out flaws? It’s annoying, unfair and turns clothes and makeup into a stressful, never-ending game of fixing – and it needs to stop.

To waste ones aesthetic choices entirely on trying to make oneself look better (read: more acceptable) is a borderline tragedy. If everyone is trying to “flatter” themselves into the same standardized image of attractiveness, everyone is molding themselves into the same bland abstraction of femaleness. And worse, no one is trying out things for fun, or to be different, or just to see what it looks like. A culture of fear-of-mistakes settles around how people dress or do their makeup, and that’s a sad thing.

Because, let’s be honest, a lot of what I do to myself isn’t what other people would think of as a “flattering” choice. I’ve been cultivating a uni-brow for the past year, and just recently taken to clipping my fringe into a center parting like a caricature of a nerd. I’m not interested in “flattering” my apparently problematic face and body, I don’t want to fix my imperfections and distract from my flaws. There is and should be an element of subjectivity here. One man’s “flattering” is another man’s “good God, what on earth is that?” That’s a good thing. And I’d rather elicit the “good God” response than the pernicious “flattering” any day.

So next time you sense some anxiety seeping into your getting-ready routine, take a moment. You pretty much look how you look, and there’s no point fearing that you’ve not adequately disguised your “problems”. Your problems aren’t problematic, they just exist. Instead of thinking about them, think about that exciting new metallic lipstick or those gloriously ugly shoes. By wearing something deliberately a bit off-key, the rest of you will look much more aesthetically pleasing in comparison. Now that’s the kind of flattering I can get on board with.

Speaking Truly: Bringing Presence to the Power of Our Word

2015-08-20-1440101579-248019-LIHInlawsnotOutlaws1.jpg

What an immense gift we are given in this human power to speak; this wild phenomenon of mind and heart coming together with sound to be voiced!

I’ll never forget the moment when my sweet daughter Arayla, at about 10 months of age uttered her very first word, “kiss.” We were still lying around one morning in bed, having just finished nursing, and as I adoringly kissed her sweet, pink, juicy face all over, with each kiss I planted, I said softly: “kiss… kiss… kiss… kiss… kiss…”

It was just an ordinary moment of divine mother-baby love. And then suddenly she said, distinctly: “KISS!” and I gasped, watching her little eyes open wide in recognition of her newfound power, as she repeated with her high-pitched baby voice: “Kiss, kiss, kiss!” clapping her hands with pride and joy. Oh to witness her little vocal mouth merging with her intelligence, discovering the capacity to let sound become word: what a wondrous thing!

It is an awesome power indeed — how we can use our words to bless, to praise, to pray, to convey our heart’s ponderings, to clarify our thoughts, giving voice to insight and intention. What a treasure: this way we can use our words to tell a brave and tender truth, to teach and explain, to express our perceptions, our yearnings and vulnerability. What a potent capacity we have — to use our words to express our remorse, to name our gratitude and proclaim our love; to extend the grace of forgiveness.

And of course, on the shadow side, what equally powerful and humbling capacity we have to cause real harm with our words. There are the blatant forms of this — when we allow our pain, anger and fear to speak in ways that sever us from our own hearts; the unfortunate power we have to use our words violently in blame and judgment; to wound, to punish, to intentionally cause another being to suffer; or simply in narcissistic sloppiness, how we can quickly make a mean mess with our words.

Recently I stumbled into a dark mood. Agitated by the Summer heat, sleep-deprived and triggered by a few different things not going my way, I became grumpy and impatient, and for a stretch of about 40 minutes, I indulged this grumpiness and lazily let my words extend from it. Unfortunately, during this time, I happened to interact with several different people, including my two children, and watched the power of my energy spreading like a contagious force of dark will. Fortunately I was able to catch it before too much harm had been done, re-center my intention, and apologize sincerely in the different directions I had allowed my irritated energy to flow. But it was a humble reminder of the infectiously toxic ripples we can create with our words.

And there are even more subtle, less conscious ways we can unwittingly cause harm with our words — while speaking from our blind-spots, our own sub-conscious wounding and conditioning; moments when unbeknownst to us, our voices are contributing to the poison of ignorance, subtly perpetuating the disease of war and separation in our world.

I was quite young still — 16 or so — when I began to notice this great range of power to be found in speaking; this innate capacity to bring both beauty and harm with our words; and as though remembering something from my ancient soul reserves of wisdom, I knew I must learn to be vigilant, discriminating and discerning with my words. It was at that point that silence became a precious companion.

I spent a lot of my college years alone — quiet in contemplation, creating art, attending class, studying and writing. The social atmosphere of college life held little interest or resonance for me. Often, in everyday social situations, when I would go to speak, I would find the uncomfortable gap between what my heart knew to be true, what I authentically yearned to share, and my limited confidence and ability to say it. I felt socially awkward (not unlike how I still feel in moments!) in the face of the cultural expectation to exchange words loosely, superficially, disingenuously and casually: “Hey, how are you? Why, just fine thank you, and you?”

After college I lived for 18 months at a remote residential healing school, sequestered in the golden hills of Northern California. It was there I was offered the unusual choice to wear on occasion a small sign around my neck, much like a name tag, with the simple words printed “In Loving Silence.” I wore this sign on specific days when I was authentically called to embody quiet. What a gift this was — the permission to claim my own silence, the speechlessness and utter wordlessness I so often felt, while attending my classes and meals; inhaling and exhaling the colorful bounty of sunrises and sunsets.

Not long after that I met my spiritual teacher Gangaji, and by the grace of her spoken words, so masterfully pointing the heart Home to its Source, I awakened to the truth of my being.

Her words were unlike any I had ever heard: words of utterly profound, mind-stopping truth; words of true teaching. Her words were sublimely given to speaking the unspeakable, somehow telling the un-tellable, inviting direct revelation of the unknowable; holy words pointing to the vast, silence Source, from which all words arise. Her words invoked the realization of what cannot be thought; what is deeper than thought, deeper than knowing and unknowing. Her words somehow illuminated the shining, endless, exquisitely mysterious truth of the matter.

Bless the countless teachers who use their voices in such a way: to inspire, to guide, to clarify, invite and embrace! Bless the words used as skillful swords to slice through the mind’s relentless habits of dichotomy, separation, and defense. Bless the words so generously intended to open, to ignite and beckon awakening; to annihilate illusion and confirm true self-awareness.

Yesterday, retreating at a beloved local hot springs, a place I visit in gratitude for the sacred, natural healing sanctuary it is, I found myself challenged at one point to incorporate the constant presence of human chatter into my space of silent reverie.

Irritated and distracted, I witnessed my own impatient, opinionated human thoughts — wishing everyone would just be quiet, especially in a holy, healing place like this. I thought: if only we could let the incessant need to express our minds just come to rest for a bit, take a blessed pause, be willing to look deeper than social and vocal exchange, so as to open more fully to the infinite treasures waiting for discovery within?

Of course I noticed with ironic humor the sound of my own thoughts, certainly just as loud and annoying as anyone’s chatter, and my impatience thankfully gave way to a deeper truth of inclusion: all the sounds of life can be seen as sacred and precious, when seen from the eyes of the heart. Mindless, social, human chatter is not unlike bird chatter; simply another sound of God speaking to itself.

And yet, I still can’t help but take notice of how often people approach me in this space, wanting something — ranging from sexual energy to simple friendly acknowledgment; various forms of seeking attention. We all want something, don’t we? It’s natural, and really quite innocent. But how often do we turn to mindless chatter and casual conversation, sharing our endless stream of thoughts, either in hopes that it will bring us what we want — attention, connection, intimacy, acknowledgment, entertainment, love — or that it will temporarily distract us from the discomfort of our deeper longings?

What we most deeply want is unspeakable, and cannot be sated by any exchange. Words can certainly serve it, but they will always fall blessedly short.

I invite you, as I invite myself, just as an experiment: to try speaking only what must be said, and leave the rest behind. I invite you as I invite myself to hold the word as a sacred power we have: to heal, to inform and transform, invoke and invite, as well as to harm, to wound, to delude and to sever.

What are we contributing to today, with the words we choose to share? What are we hoping to get from what we say? Attention? Agreement? Collusion? Connection? Are we contributing to love, or to fear with our chosen words? To truth, or to suffering?

Speak less, and see what arises. Speak from presence, and see what this feels like in your heart and body. Speak only what is true for you to speak, and see what space this opens for yourself and the ones with whom you share your words.

It is only a short while we are given with these minds and hearts and voices unified in these particular, individual forms.

What will you say? How will you use the gift? How will you voice your heart, your seeing, your perception, your questions, insights and revelations? How will you bless us with what you choose to speak, and equally so by allowing us to receive the delicious, silent spaces in between?

I can hardly wait to hear.

A Look At Bernie Sanders’ Spoken Word Album And Full Discography

We all know that Bernie Sanders recorded a spoken word album. But not a lot of people know that Bernie has a robust catolog of musical work. So I thought it was important to look at all of Bernie Sanders’ albums and see where his spoken word album landed. Also, I’m sure you’ve been in one of those “What’s your favorite Bernie Sanders song?” conversations at a party. Everybody is rattling off hits like “We Shall Overcome” and “The Banks Are Made Of Marble,” and you’re thinking, “Those are the only two I know!” Don’t worry! This should help you out.

“We Shall Overcome” (1987) 

The album that put him on the musical map. Just great top to bottom. It speaks to his ability, and we get a sense of exactly who he is and what he’s about. Very rare for a freshman album.

RATING: 4.5/5

BEST TRACKS:

“We Shall Overcome”

 ”The Banks Are Made Of Marble

“Bernie Sanders Live” (1988)

Bernie LIVE at the Forum. This release was a brilliant move by Bernie to simmer expectation after such a hot start. He decided to record a live album with everybody’s favorite hits while sprinkling in a few new tracks. Also, some of the best mid-song banter OF ALL TIME! Guy took three to six questions from the audience between every song.

RATING: 4/5 

BEST TRACKS:

The Top 1% Of Our Countries Wealth Governs The Bottom 45%”

We’re Living In An Oligarchy And Here’s Why!”

“Bernie” (1989)

Bernie’s true sophomore album fulfilled every bit of expectation. Bernie spends every track on this album taking on race relations and shining a light on topics that nobody was talking about at the time. With tunes to make you get up and get down. I mean the hook in “Institutional Racism Is Real And We’ve Done Little To Stop It” makes you want to jump on your bed and scream, “BERNIE BABY!”

RATING: 4/5

BEST TRACKS

Institutional Racism Is Real And We’ve Done Little To Stop It

Minorities Shouldn’t Have To Work Three Jobs To Make Rent 

“The Banks Did WHAT?!” (1997)

A change from his usual beat. Bernie’s first (and only) comedy album was met with confusion and disdain. Mainly because his audience knew him to be a soulful musician, NOT an angry Lewis Black-style comic. I’m sure you’ll find some die-hard fans that say it’s his best work, but they just don’t want to accept that their hero miffed.

It happens.

RATING: 1/5

BEST TRACKS

”Not ONE Has Been Prosecuted!”

The Differences Between Bankers And Middle Class Families”

“Self-Titled” (2013)

Magic. A return to form that felt new and alive. If you haven’t heard this album, stop what you’re doing and download it NOW. Not tomorrow. Not when it’s convienent. NOW! 

RATING: 5/5

BEST TRACKS

The Census Bureau Report On Income And Poverty In The US 1988-2013″

Citizens United Has Done More To Divide This Country And Stagnate Reform Than Any Other Piece Of Legislation In Our Nation’s History. This Is How We Must Address It.”

The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs.

Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072.

American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

The Girl Who Taught Me to Spell the Word ‘Love’

In my 49 years on this planet, I have had the chance to meet some amazing people and make a lot of good friends. Some have lasted beyond time and circumstance, while others have ended naturally after school, or a move or job change.

A few ended painfully.

But there is one friend whose effect on me was so profound that I think of her often.

Carol and I were in the same afternoon kindergarten class. She was my ideal of what a girl should look and be like. Her long, brown hair hung down to her waist, and she possessed the all-American face I longed for myself. She had the ability to make friends easily and always managed to look neat and pretty.

If Carol was a polished pearl, I was a diamond in the rough.

I couldn’t stay clean if I was kept under glass. My hair never looked right, no matter what my mom did to it, so I frequently sported an un-girlish pixie cut. And it wasn’t always easy for me to make new friends, especially with other girls.

Unlike Carol, I couldn’t color in the lines, glue anything neatly or cut a straight line to save my life. School never came easy for me, and kindergarten was no exception.

It wouldn’t be until years later when my dyslexia was discovered that I knew why everything was such a struggle. But even at the age of 5, I knew something was wrong.

I never felt like a misfit when I was with her. She liked and accepted me for who I was. If someone smart and popular like her wanted to be my friend, how bad could I be?

One day, we were sitting next to each other making a card for our families. I couldn’t figure out how to spell the word “love,” and I asked her for help. With the skill and patience my teachers sometimes lacked, she taught me how to spell and write the word on my card. I never forgot how to spell it again.

The following year, Carol started first grade at the local Catholic school. I was heartbroken and so mad at the church for taking my friend away from me. We were never classmates again. Despite only living a few blocks away from each other, we rarely got together anymore.

I can’t remember if my mother used the word “cancer” when she told me Carol was sick, but I knew it was serious.

I can still see her that Halloween when she came trick-or-treating. Her beautiful long hair was gone, and she had a little granny cap on. But she was on my front stoop smiling and getting her candy like any other kid.

A few months later, I went to her birthday party and brought her a Barbie. Since I unceremoniously ripped every package I got, I thought it was odd that she wouldn’t take the plastic off the doll’s hair. Years later, it occurred to that she might have been trying to protect the doll’s hair because she couldn’t protect her own.

I was home sick from school the day my mom got the call that Carol died. I was in the third grade and hadn’t seen her for at least a year, but I felt the loss. I knew I would never get to play with her again. She was gone.

Carol never had the chance to grow up, but I did. I went on to have sleepovers, act in plays, sing in choirs, go to parties and dream about what I would be when I was an adult. I got to experience all the first dates, kisses, heartbreaks, jobs and apartments that she never did.

Today I’m a writer, wife and mom of three. My youngest child is around the same age I was when Carol died. Life has certainly gone on. Yet each and every time I spell the word “love,” I can’t help but think of the girl with the long brown hair.

Word Of Mouth: Nashville Conversations: Insight Into The Drive, Passion, And Innovation Of Music City's Creative

Word Of Mouth: Nashville Conversations: Insight Into The Drive, Passion, And Innovation Of Music City's Creative


Right now, there is no city in the United States hotter, cooler, or more it than Nashville, TN. With a booming economy, a great quality of life, and a creative, collaborative entreprepeneurial community, Nashville is on the short-list of living and travel destinations for passionate and innovative minds. As many newspapers, magazines, and websites have pointed out, one of the critical components to Nashville''s growth and popularity is it''s thriving and cutting-edge music, culinary, and artistic communities.
Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations is an elegant collection of interviews by Nashville writer Lily C. Hansen, highlighted by stunning, black & white photography from some of Nashville''s finest photographers, that captures the drive, passion, and innovation of several prolific Nashvillians who have thrived in – and helped drive — the art, culinary, and music industries. Also included are several wild card personalities: those who possess talents that defy labeling and elipse categorization. Word of Mouth is an inside look at the exploding community of Nashville and a multifaceted portrait of the intellectual and inventive capital that makes the city hum with energy.
It''s title reflects what makes Word of Mouth special: by interviewing each of these personalities, Word of Mouth relies on the classic form of intimate conversation to gain insight and understanding of each personality while also capturing the organic and tried-and-true method – word of mouth — through which each have attracted their fan-base and support network. Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations is a testament to Nashville''s incredible mixture of artistic talent but also it''s zest for collaboration, rather than competitiveness: similar to the artistic community''s nonexistent hierarchy, up-and-coming talent is interviewed alongside illustrious, internationally-recognized artists.
While Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations focuses on the creative entrepeneurs of Music City, it is a book that knows no geographical limits; it is for every creative entrepreneur, everywhere. As a collection of anecdotes, quotes and wisdom shared by those pursuing their dreams or those who have already obtained commercial fruition, it presents the stories and the insights that any innovative mind, young and old alike, needs to hear as they follow their heart and pursue their own creative path.

The Spoken Word: Recollections of Dryden History, The Early Years (NASA SP-2003-4530) – Scott Crossfield Interview, Muroc, NACA Research, X-1 Project

The Spoken Word: Recollections of Dryden History, The Early Years (NASA SP-2003-4530) – Scott Crossfield Interview, Muroc, NACA Research, X-1 Project


Since the founding of the Dryden Flight Research Center History Office in 1996, its staff has conducted nearly a hundred interviews with retired and serving employees. Their recollections represent a unique resource in understanding the development of aerospace technology in the second half of the 20th century. Their personal experiences, insights, and opinions allow the reader to gain an understanding into what it was actually like to have been involved with some of the milestone events in aerospace history. These interviews have been edited and assembled into this monograph, so that a wider audience can also share in their experiences.This study covers the early years of what eventually became the Dryden Flight Research Center. It spans the period between the arrival of Walter Williams and the first group of NACA engineers at Muroc in 1946, and ends with the establishment of NASA in 1958. This timeframe encompasses the breaking of the sound barrier, the pivotal inertial coupling research, the first use of computer simulations, the transformation of the NACA facility from a pair of old hangars into a state-of-the-art research center, and the dawn of the space age. These events took place against the background of the end of World War II, the start of the Cold War, and the twin technological revolutions of jet propulsion and supersonic flight. They are told by the people who participated in these events, in their own words.The foundations of the Dryden Flight Research Center date back more than a half century, to a time when aviation faced revolutionary technical changes. When the first NACA contingent arrived in September 1946, they found the Muroc Army Air Field to be an isolated and barren outpost. The post-war demobilization had left the hastily constructed base facilities in a poor state of repair. Palmdale and Lancaster in the late 1940s were rough desert towns lacking many of the conveniences to which the new arrivals from Langley (and their spouses) had been
