  • Experts recommend creating resolutions that serve your mental or emotional health in order to make goals stick.
  • If you've been slow to choose or implement a New Year's resolution this year, this will help you get on track.

Paige Smith, Huffington Post

12/28/2018 | When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, people are either staunch defenders of the practice or vocal critics. On one hand, resolutions provide purpose and structure for those interested in self-improvement; on the other hand, they tend not to work.



"The trick is to create resolutions that are focused more on holistic improvement and progress, rather than on achieving a specific result. Think of your resolution as an intention, or a conscious daily,weekly or monthly choice that will help you improve an area of your life."



Most people quit their resolutions after a couple of months, said Melissa Coats, a licensed professional counselor, psychotherapist and owner of Coats Counseling in Georgia. If you struggle with anxiety or feelings of inadequacy, she explained, the pressure to succeed can be particularly damaging.

Matt Taibbi and the Truths He Spoke Against the Industries of Death

“Political power in this country is not divided between right and left, and not even between rich and poor. The real line is between a war party, and everyone else.” ~ Matt Taibbi

Teodrose Fikre, Ghion Journal
http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/If%20You%20Use%20it%2C%20Contribute%20To%20It%20banner.jpgDecember 22, 2018 | In a stunning departure from mainstream media orthodoxy, Matt Taibbi wrote an article for Rolling Stone about Trump’s announced pullout from Syria that rebuked the never-ending and bipartisan clamor for war. Instead of going along with the establishment punditry and echoing the talking points of arm chair generals, Taibbi methodically took apart the case for our continued presence in Syria. In a display of courage that is sorely lacking in our supposed “free-press”, he detailed the appalling costs of war—the human toll and the financial waste—which have been deftly hidden by industries that profit from the proliferation of bombs and bullets.

Too many Americans have been shielded from the horrors that are unleashed by the military-financial complex. The bloody reality of riddled bodies and shattered lives has been sanitized by propagandists who put on the guise of reporters—human suffering hidden by euphemisms, technology and distance. Taibbi made it his intention to speak against these distortions that are purveyed by professional dissimulators who commit journalistic malpractice on a regular basis. From the outset, Taibbi brings to light the lunacy of the perpetual “War on Terror” that has done everything to perpetuate terror while making us less safe.

https://i2.wp.com/ghionjournal.com/wp-content/uploads/gravatar/29196465_10156022729414404_6911631018176899444_n.jpg?w=80&ssl=1 / Teodrose Fikre is the editor and founder of the Ghion Journal. A published author and prolific writer, a once defense consultant was profoundly changed by a two year journey of hardship and struggle. Going from a life of upper-middle class privilege to a time spent with the huddled masses taught Teodrose a valuable lesson in the essence of togetherness and the need to speak against injustice.

Matt Taibbi is a contributing editor for Rolling Stone and winner of the 2008 National Magazine Award for columns and commentary.

Scientific American

September20,2018 | Why do facts fail to change people’s minds? In this eBook, we examine how we form our beliefs and maintain them with a host of cognitive biases, the difference between intelligence and thinking rationally and some solutions for how to overcome these obstacles both in reasoning with others and in dealing with our own prejudices.

Scientific American is the award-winning authoritative source for the science discoveries and technology innovations that matter.

Part 2: How to Think Better
 

While writing may not literally increase your working memory, many cognitive scientists now believe that such external representations may form important parts of our cognition. This externalized cognition extends the space of thinking and literally makes us smarter, even if our brains are just the same as before.   

Scott H. Young, scotthyoung.com

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/%2522Thinker%2522%20Logo_0.jpg / December 2018 | Imagine if you could take a pill that would double your intelligence. What would that feel like?

You’d be able to keep more thoughts in your head. You could draw new connections between ideas. You could solve problems you’ve been stuck on for years.

Such a pill may not exist, but there already is a cognitive enhancing tool, and it doesn’t require brain-altering drugs.

Part 3: The Last Curious Man

There is no easy description for Tony Bourdain, or for the utterly unique role he managed to carve out for himself in this world. He was a chef. He was an author. He was a very popular TV host—the cheerfully dickish center of the food-media universe. He was an explorer who removed degrees of separation from the world's sociological arithmetic, a man who was always, in his words, hungry for more.   
The enormous life of Anthony Bourdain, according to those who knew him best.

Drew Magary, GQ

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Anthony%20Bourdain.jpgDecember 4, 2018 | Chris Bourdain is searching for a word that he cannot quite find. We're sitting together in a small café in Grand Central Terminal, drinking table wine and talking about his late older brother, Anthony. Chris has a habit of looking away as he's talking to you, one of many physical traits he shares with Tony. And right now he is thinking, with Bourdainian intensity, for a way to sum up his brother succinctly, and for a very specific reason.

"The death certificate that was printed in France," he tells me, "listed as his profession 'chef.' And I tried for months to figure out, what is the appropriate way to describe what Tony has been doing for the last seven or eight years? There's no description for it."

Drew Magary is an author on GQ.

Carol Becker, Minneapolis (MN) StarTribune

October 23, 2018 | In “Private market must be a big part of the solution,” (Oct. 18) Federal Reserve Bank executives Ron Feldman and Mark Wright argue that building more market-rate housing will create more affordable housing through simple supply and demand.

If you have a market for bananas and you increase the number of bananas for sale, the cost per banana will go down. And people will buy more bananas and fewer of oranges. Conversely if you have fewer bananas for sale, the price will go up and people will buy fewer bananas and more oranges.

From the Archives | More Housing, Not Shelters, Colleen O’Connor Toberman, Minnesota 2020

We know that housing helps people live stable, healthy, productive lives. We know what we need to do. The question, Minnesota, is… will we do it?

May 1, 2014 | Today, Minneapolis’ two winter shelters will close for the season. This has become an annual ritual for the past few years, ever since two churches opened temporary winter shelters to offer supplemental beds for the rising homeless population. These two shelters house over 100 people a night, who will now find themselves out in the still-chilly spring without other options.

Our first impulse might be to solve this problem by keeping these shelters open year round, but I have mixed feelings about opening more homeless shelters. Obviously, I want everyone to have a safe place to sleep, eat, and connect to services. I want shelters that are accessible to every community across the state and offer sufficient space for everyone in need. It’s (inhumane) to turn someone away because there’s no room at the inn.

Colleen O’Connor Toberman is passionate about housing and poverty issues. Colleen is a social worker at East Side Neighborhood Services in Minneapolis, where she assists low-income individuals with benefits enrollment and food security. Her prior experience includes time at Our Saviour’s Housing and several other housing/homeless organizations.

Thomas Gumbleton, National Catholic Reporter

Nov 15, 2018 | As we reflect on the Scripture readings this evening, especially the Gospel, it's very important that we remember the context of what happens in the Gospel lesson. We're all very familiar with what we call the "widow's mite," that story of the widow who gave her last two very insignificant coins into the box for the poor. It's often used when people are trying to raise money for the church. Think about that widow; she gave everything. Can't you give something?

But in the context, Jesus really isn't focusing so much on what the widow gave, but rather on the failure of the religious leaders.

Oct 30, 2018 | I think it's time for everyone who Supports The Troops actually to do so. I think if you applaud the Troops that are introduced at ballgames, or if you Thank Them For Their Service in airports, or stick yellow ribbons on the bumper of your SUV, you should be marching right now on the White House to protest the fact that the president* of United States has enlisted 5,000 of the Troops into a racist fantasy that he's peddling for political advantage—and a racist fantasy that already has a body count, at that—and to protest the waste of taxpayer money spent on moving a brigade-level mass of men to the southern border to fend off an "invasion" of shoeless Central American peasants who, in any case, are still at least a month of walking south of Brownsville.

If you Support The Troops, scream and holler and push back hard against the use of the U.S. Army as set decoration for his most recent spasm of bigoted insanity. From The New York Times:
