Study: BFFs May Have Similar DNA Belinda Luscombe @luscombeland July 15, 2014
Really close friends might be as genetically similar as fourth cousins
Next time someone says “You would really like my friend, she’s just like you,” try to refrain from giving her the side eye. It turns out she might have some science to back her up. According to a new study from Yale University and the University of California at San Diego, good friends are often genetically similar, and can share as much as 1% of the same gene variants. In genetic terms, that’s a lot. As close as, say, fourth cousins.
“This gives us a deeper accounting of the origins of friendship,” says Nicholas Christakis, professor of sociology, evolutionary biology, and medicine at Yale, who co-authored the study with James Fowler, professor of medical genetics and political science at UC San Diego. “Not only do we form ties with people superficially like ourselves, we form ties with people who are like us on a deep genetic level. They’re like our kin, though they’re not.”
The study found that, oddly, close friends are often genetically similar in their sense of smell. But it also concluded that friendship may play a role in evolution. The genes that were shared by friends saw the most “evolutionary activity”, or have evolved the fastest over the past 30,000 years. Whether the friendship or the genetic similarity came first is up for debate. Do we seek out genetically similar friends or do our friendships and mating affect what genes get passed on
“Human beings are one of the few species who form long-term, non-reproductive relationships with other members of our species,” says Fowler.
Words cannot express how deeply excited I am about tonight’s show…. Curves In 3D was a vision of mine for several years. I did not know how to go about making it happen, so I kept putting it off. I can remember having a conversation with one of my clients, telling them to stop overthinking it and just do it! I got off the phone with her and was assessing my notes and ran across my notes about having a Blog Talk radio show…. And I thought to myself…. You Hypocrite! I did, I did! You guys know I am transparent.
I knew I did not want to go it alone, so I reached out to my 3D Plus Modeling team and surprisingly enough I got several hits… Whoop! Whoop! The Team was born….
Auntie…. Hott Topics (Live and Uncut)
Swan….. CN3D (Beauty)
Selena…. Throw Me A Curve (News)
Kayann…. Fashion Forward (Trending Fashions)
After we had a few shows under our belt we added
Pastor Ann…. Food For Thought (Inspiration/Motivation)
Kayann, Ann & Selena decided to leave us so we added long time guest host Blue Amber to the family…

And last but not least Joy Amor has been added to the 3D family
Ms Amor…. Fashion Forward
One year later and Curves In 3D Radio is going strong….. Thank you Swan, Blue and Joy, I could not do this without you ladies…. Thank you to some of our weekly listeners, Jarvis, Stacy, Pam, Angel and Ms. Pat…. Thank you to those who have been special guest and guest host. Thank you to those who have called in and shared…. Yesssss Babee, I Love It!
Our family, friends and fans make it all possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart…. Continue to join us as we continue to make it All Happen…. Auntie
Some strategies that work:
•Turn it off – Disconnect on the weekend. Try it, at least for one day or even a few hours each night. Put the phone down and turn off the computer.
•Trim, trim, trim – Say no to everything that is either not essential or doesn’t add something valuable to your life. Be ruthless!
•Pay attention to your health – We know what we need to do, but it isn’t a priority until we have a health crisis. We are far more productive and happier when we get enough sleep, eat a little healthier and fit in some type of activity.
•Minimize toxins– By that I don’t mean chemicals. Minimize the negative influences around you. Avoid toxic people (complainers, whiners, poor attitudes.)
•Spend time alone – It is crucial for lowering stress, increasing happiness and encouraging creativity.
•Relationships do matter – Set aside quality time with your family and friends..
•Treat yourself– Get a pedicure or a facial. Better yet, schedule a massage.
•Explore the world – Take a new route, visit a new town. Attend a local performance, play amateur photographer or go to the park and watch children play.
•Expand your awareness – Take a class, learn to paint or try something new that you’ve always wanted to learn. Read a book that sparks your interest or try listening to uplifting music.
•Remember fun – Laugh, joke, play, find your sense of humor.
I live in a suburb of San Antonio. A couple of weeks ago, just before San Antonio elected its first African-American mayor, two articles jettisoned me to my computer. Fed up with the idea of blaming the teachers; with blaming the legislature and the government, my two cents jingled with the idea it’s the village’s fault. We turned over our education to our children and want to blame everyone else except the real culprits—the parents. Parents who tell the teachers how to do their jobs. Parents who feel two cars in the garage is more important than a child listening to their teacher. Parents who work to buy things they don’t need, to impress people they don’t like, with money they don’t have.
Today my students told me not every teacher wants to teach. Though we don’t want to believe that. It’s true. We believe it so much we make the salary so low, we force the best and brightest to look for better paying jobs to support their families instead of teaching our children. Don’t get me wrong! There are wonderful teachers out there, but few of them look like me. That’s how the first article riled me up. Esther Cepeda’s San Antonio Express News article on the ‘Dearth of Minority Teachers’ indicated the system is stacked against “many minority or low-income students” fulfilling their dreams of being a teacher because they just can’t afford to do that.
And just how did this happen in America? Dr. Hare tells us:
“They made the parents afraid to discipline their children, the teacher were afraid of the principals, the principals were afraid of the superintendent, the superintendents were afraid of the school board, the school board were afraid of the parents, the parents are afraid of the children and the children ain’t’ afraid of nobody.”
Lets Talk - Poem by Andrew Olson
Oh brother I can't, I can't get through
I've been trying hard to reach you, cause I don't know what to do
Oh brother I can't believe it's true
I'm so scared about the future and I wanna talk to you
Oh I wanna talk to you
You can take a picture of something you see
In the future where will I be?
You can climb a ladder up to the sun
Or write a song nobody has sung
Or do something that's never been done
Are you lost or incomplete?
Do you feel like a puzzle, you can't find your missing piece?
Tell me how do you feel?
Well I feel like they're talking in a language I don't speak
And they're talking it to me
So you take a picture of something you see
In the future where will I be?
You can climb a ladder up to the sun
Or a write a song nobody has sung
Or do something that's never been done
Do something that's never been done
So you don't know were you're going, and you wanna talk
And you feel like you're going where you've been before
You tell anyone who'll listen but you feel ignored
Nothing's really making any sense at all
Let's talk, let's talk
Let's talk, let's talk

Pay attention to her.
When a woman is "tripping", she cares.
When a woman is "mad", she believed in you and you let her down.
When she is asking questions, she is trying to gain clarity.
When she is quiet, and is letting things "slide", she is giving up.
And when she is not doing any of the above, just know that you have lost a good woman.
We open our Hearts so freely by Hidden Truth
We open our hearts so freely,
We surrender our all,
But when the bruises show,
We pretend it's just a fall.
We allow it to continue,
Each and every day,
We scream silent cries for help,
But no one hears, no one sees, no one say.
Even when we wince in pain,
We think it could get better,
Deep down we know it can't,
To them we do not matter.
Each and every day we live in fear,
Could this be our last?
In front of others we joke and laugh,
As not to show our past.
We allow ourselves to be bullied,
In every abusive way,
It happens in every shape and form,
Day after day after day.
We fear in life we fear in death,
But which of the two evils are better,
We are tormented in both,
So it doesn't really matter.
All I want is to love and be loved,
Is that too much to ask?
But every time I find it,
It becomes an impossible task.
I look all around me,
And I see it all there,
Couples so much in love,
It's more than I can bare.
I feel so alone,
Altho' friends are all around,
I open my mouth to tell them,
But nothing comes out, not a sound.
Never used to have this trouble,
Of sayin' what needed to be said,
Perhaps this man has changed me,
By the living in fear an' dread.
I Wish I was a Beauty Queen
I spent too much time wishing I would be someone I'm not
I wish I had smaller thighs
I wish I had prettier eyes
I wish I had cuter toes
I wish I had a better nose
I wish I had fuller lips
I wish I had smaller hips
I wish my stomach was flatter
I wish all this didn't matter
All this wishing
And compliment fishing
Does nothing to change my soul
I'm just trying to fill a hole
A hole created by this warped definition of beauty
But I'm unique
I'm no longer weak
No longer wanting to change
told me they swear
Fall under this 'category' of beauty
But I am here to prove them wrong
And show that I am strong
And show I belong
in this 'category'
no longer warped
no longer having to be worked
to be given the title
Of a Beauty Queen
From Blogger Chrystal Bougon
How does someone as fat as you have so much confidence? Where do you get your great self-esteem?
I have gotten this question a lot in my lifetime. I have been fat since the third grade and I am 47 now. So that is a lot of years in a fat body. Now I own a plus-size lingerie boutique and the topic of confidence and self-esteem in a fat body comes up at our boutique pretty much seven days a week. Every single day, without fail, this topic comes up. "Chrystal, how can I become confident in my fat body? What is the trick?"
So this does beg the question: Where do we get our self-esteem? How does a fat woman get to be so confident? Where did I get my own self-esteem? I have been asking myself and my community that very question a lot recently. Personally, I feel like my family and the way I was brought up gave me a good base. Unconditional love can do that for a person. I was blessed to have family who did not shame me because of my body.
This is going to sound trite, but stick with me. When I was a kid I was a voracious reader. Any magazine, book, newsletter that crossed my path I read. I read a ridiculous article in Cosmopolitan once about how women should find one thing about their body that they liked and focus on that. (It was next to an article about how to measure if your boobs are droopy by trying to hold a pencil underneath them. You have to love Cosmo in the '80s. I was 14.) But, internally, I started that discipline when I was about 14. I would focus on things like "wow, I have really cute toes." Yes, at 14. "I love how my skin gets so tan in the sun." "My green eyes are really pretty," I would repeat to myself.
