    Love Her, Love Her Not: The Hillary Clinton Paradox with Joanne Bamberger

    in Moms and Family

    Hillary Clinton’s name is on everyone’s lips as we head into the 2016 presidential election. Is America ready for a woman president? How research on women’s likability impacts Hillary’s campaign? What do feminists really think about Hillary? Why Hillary Clinton can and should change the way America cares for children and supports families? What those pantsuits really mean to women’s power and agency in a man’s world? Will voters accept a woman commander in chief? How can voters hate a woman chosen 17 times by Gallup as the most admired woman in the world?  


    These are some of the topics covered in the Amazon #1 bestseller Love Her, Love Her Not: The Hillary Paradox authored/edited by Joanne Bamberger. The book is an anthology that explores the question of why so many Americans, especially women, have such complicated and conflicting feelings when it comes to one of the most well-known and admired women in the world — Hillary Rodham Clinton.


    Joanne Bamberger, an entrepreneurial journalist, award-winning writer, and attorney, is the publisher and editor in chief of The Broad Side, a noted digital magazine of women’s commentary.


    Join Joanne Bamberger and me on Wednesday, January 6, 10-11 A.M. CT US. We will be discussing the complicated feelings about one of the most powerful women in American politics and possibly our next president.

    Profit From Paradox

    in Business

    If you’re working a 9-to-5 job, even one that you like, we have a question. WHY? You’re still tethered to the success of someone else. Did you know more suicides take place on Mondays? You do now. This week we talk with Dr. Barry Schwartz (TED, Practical Wisdom: The right way to do the right thing) about the link between economics and psychology and how choice factors into your personal success.

    The Paradox of Hillary Clinton

    in Politics Progressive

    As the MOMocrats prepared for this week's podcast, news was still unfolding in Paris, which was under lockdown again after a raid looking for the mastermind of Friday's horrific terrorist attack. It's been reported that two people have died, including a woman wearing a suicide vest. Needless to say, US political discourse in the wake of ISIS has turned to the topics of foreign policy, terrorism, and immigration - areas that are in the bailiwick of the Democratic front-runner, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. MOMocrats Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills talk with Joanne Bamberger, author of "Love Her, Love Her Not: The Hillary Paradox."

    Office Genomics, Pain Paradox in Family Medicine

    in Health

    How might we look at genomics in office practice in Family Medicine?  Dr. Jonas, your host for the Dr. Synonymous Show, will dream a bit about what we are doing now and what might be.


    Responding to patients with painful situations is challenging in Family Medicine.  We love our  patients.  They hurt- we help.  But, their brain might get dysregulated by the pain via "wind-up" and potentially by opiate medications for persistent moderate or severe pain.  With FDA tightening up on prescribing rules for , many more patients are seeing their doctor monthly.  How do we respond to their frustrations at having to come in monthly for their pain management?


    Pain is a paradox in Family Medicine.  Listen in for further discussion.

    in Politics Progressive

    It's Thanksgiving week, so the MOMocrats are repeating last week's podcast: News was still unfolding in Paris, which was under lockdown again after a raid looking for the mastermind of Friday's horrific terrorist attack.

    The Dark Underbelly of Leadership: The Paradox of Authentic Leadership

    in Business

    Linda Lombardo and Joss Rowlands continue the conversation about what is leadership and how the dark underbelly shows up when we least expect it. 


    This month's topic: Authentic Leadership - Well, ok, you might say - If it's not authentic, then what is it? 


    Here's a quote from a 2013 article on leadership: a Forbes article by contributor Kevin Kruse. 

    "It continues to surprise me how many leaders attempt to be one way at work, while their ‘true’ personality emerges outside of work. Once a CEO reminded me, ‘Leadership is acting.’ And it surprises me when these same leaders seem shocked or confused when their employees don’t trust them, don’t like them, and can’t really wait to work elsewhere." -Kevin Kruse, Forbes


    Joss and Linda explore the paradox of authentic leadership within the dark underbelly, or perhaps its the paradox of the dark underbelly within authentic leadership? Please join us to find out.

    Fred Thopson passed away a week ago and I'll take a few moments to remember him. Then I'll talk about the liberal paradox when it comes to the rejection of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Later I'll talk about the rising cost of ObamaCare and, if time allows, Paul Ryan's top priority as the new Speaker of the House.

    The New Essenes is a gathering of ordinary people practicing deep introspection as a way to solve everyday problems. Our inquiry is based on the idea that the Word is alive and that the Language is where our Power lives: communication is not what is said and done, but the result of what is said and done.


    By joining in and coming back, we increasingly benefit from the distilled essence of an ultimate method of inquiry, based on Sacred Geometry and known as the Path of XPR.


    Our meetings last one-hour & are structured as follows:


    1.       The first 5 minutes: Welcoming, Checking In. taking a moment of silence.


    2.       The next 10 minutes:  Ritual readings.


    3.       The last 45 minutes: Introduction of a topic from our eBook http://thywillbedoneinc.com/pdf/New_Essenes.pdf. Group Sharing & Inquiry, Summary / Ritual Closing.
