19 Quotes From Single Parents To Remind You That You're Not Alone
Huffington Post - 11 months
Being a single parent can be isolating in so many ways. For starters, we single parents are physically alone with our kid(s) a lot of the time, without a partner to carry some of the burden or even just have an adult conversation with. And on an emotional level, we’re constantly seeing two-parent families held up as the ideal situation. If I’m not careful, I can end up feeling not just alone, but resentful as hell. But one thing that helps lance my boil of single parent bitterness is seeing people in the public eye going through the same things I am.  Today, on National Single Parent Day, we’re repping for solo parenting by collecting some relatable quotes from celebrities who are (or have been) single parents. Of course having a couple of nannies and a load of disposable income can make things a little easier, but some feelings are universal. Hopefully they’ll serve as a reminder that even though you’re a single parent, you are definitely not alone.  1. Edie Falco: ”...

'Fake News' Is Also Plaguing The World Of Science
Huffington Post - 12 months
By David Mills The political arena isn’t the only place where “fake news” is being debated. Scientists are now speaking out about false information and “alternative facts” that they say are diluting and harming legitimate research. To be sure, there has always been phony scientific material from snake oil salesmen to industry-sponsored research to tabloid headlines. However, experts interviewed by Healthline say the advent of the internet and the popularity of social media have made it easier for fraudulent information to spread. The topic is worrisome enough that the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) made it part of their agenda at their annual meeting last weekend in Boston. “The new media environment has allowed this type of information to be disseminated,” Dominique Brossard, PhD, a life sciences communication professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who spoke at the conference, told Healthline. Types of bad information Th...

Is It Ever Ok To Take Health Advice From A Celebrity?
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Maybe you didn’t even personally read the latest celebrity health claim. A friend referenced it in passing on social media – and perhaps your friend didn’t tell you where he or she heard that advice. Or you simply noticed increasing buzz surrounding the topic, more momentum to undergo a health screening, to not vaccinate a child, to steam clean –what?  In the disorienting collision between the fast and furious Information Age and frighteningly complex, ever-evolving 21st century health care, many are at a loss to determine what’s best for their health. With no way to possibly process all the disparate, frequently changing messages, experts say passionate accounts from public figures – celebrities – cut through much of the noise and communicate clearly, where health providers often don’t. “I think the crux of much of this problem is that U.S. adults have very low health literacy,” says Dr. Shelly Campo, an associate professor of community and behavioral health at the Univ...

Continuing her habit of keeping things real when it comes to motherhood, Kelly Clarkson got very candid about pregnancy this week. During an interview on Jenny McCarthy’s SiriusXM Radio show, the singer reflected on her experiences while pregnant with River and Remington, her two children with husband Brandon Blackstock.

Surprising Lessons About Investing From Donald Trump
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Photo courtesy of Flickr. I write about investing, not politics. By invoking Donald Trump as an example, please understand that I'm taking no political position. That said, there are some surprising lessons you can learn from Trump about investing. Here are two of them: The power of indexing While the exact amount of Trump's wealth is subject to debate, there's no reason to doubt his frequent reminder that he is indeed "really rich." However, an August 2015 article in Fortune found that Trump would have been far more wealthy if he had invested in index funds. According to the report, Trump's net worth increased approximately 300 percent to an estimated $4 billion (far below the $10 billion he claims) since 1987. But, according to an analysis attributed to the Associated Press, "if Trump had invested in an index fund in 1988, his net worth would be as much as $13 billion." While an increase of 300 percent in Trump's net worth is impressive, the S&P 500 index gai...
