    We know we are the same type of creature. It is the fear we will not survive and thrive if we do not hoard that keeps hs selfish. Man takes more than he needs for this reason. We do not need to be taught we are simillar. We need to be taught their is enough and restructure the system so people do not fear poverty and starvation to the point they are so worried even in a big toasty house that they think they are too poor to do for others.

    And finally, @Phil Friedman

    The 2015 research from Harvard omitted comparison to a far larger and more established control group of smokers when asserting concerns about diacetyl, popcorn lung, and e-cigarettes. Prior research into tobacco cigarettes (which contain measurably higher levels of diacetyl and are more commonly used than e-cigarettes) determined that smoking is not a risk factor for popcorn lung, so the lower concentrations of diacetyl in e-cigarette juices are not likely a risk factor in popcorn lung.

    For someone who as objected in the past to people not actually reading entire articles, I'm shocked that you didn't read the entire Snopes article.

    For those who want to check out why the false news Phil is spreading is false, https://www.snopes.com/vaping-causes-popcorn-lung/

    Finally, don't argue with me, argue with Snopes on the facts.

    More quotes from the Snopes article:
    Quotes from the Snopes article"
    “The Harvard study is a perfect example of something that happens over and over,” says Michael Siegel, a physician and professor at Boston University. “It creates a scare by omitting a key piece of information, undermining the public’s appreciation of the severe hazards of tobacco smoking and leading to perverse public health outcomes.” Siegel … has spent much of his career fighting tobacco companies: testifying against them in court, pushing for smoking bans in bars and restaurants, advocating for policies making it illegal to market cigarettes to youth. When e-cigs first started gaining popularity, he was skeptical, believing them to be little more than a product designed to mask the dangers of smoking. Today, however, he has become one of the most outspoken supporters of the idea that e-cigs can succeed where the crusade against smoking has come up short. Given that the current e-cig market is dominated by habitual smokers, Siegel calls the U.S. government’s reluctance to allow them to be pitched as a safer alternative “irresponsible.”

    #3 @Phil Friedman I actually read the studies in question prior to today. I read the actual studies, NOT the mass media coverage. Here's the thing. The Harvard study did not mention that the substance in question exists in much higher quantities than tobacco cigarettes. It also exists in coffee, and used to be in microwave popcorn until it was removed. The sole link between the substance and the disease comes from its presence in microwave popcorn factories, ALONG with other dangerous substances.

    Please don't continue to spread "false news" when it's so easy to check online.

    In terms of Diacetyl and popcorn lung vaping is a safer alternative than tobacco. Is it better not to do either? Of course.

    14/12/2017 #3 Phil Friedman
    #2 Wow, Martina, I am surprised you could actually be bothered to look it up on Snopes. Unfortunately, as usual, you special-plead the case ignoring a portion of what Snopes actually says on this, which is "A December 2015 Harvard study concluded that diacetyl, which is associated with popcorn lung, is present in e-cigarettes," Your position is as stupid and silly as saying that it is not smoking which is harmful to ones' health, but only the common ingredients found cigarettes. Diacetyl is a sufficiently common ingredient in vape oils to be of serious concern.

    #1 @Phil Friedman : Snopes has something to say on this:

    Disreputable viral web sites matched an unrelated photograph with claims that a study had linked e-cigarettes with popcorn lung

    #15 Appreciate your thoughtful inputs here as the gamut of nurturing is truly expansive by nature . However perhaps the profits before people approach has gradually infiltrated and corroded our way of life and living . And that is one of the consequences of why the understanding of an expansive nurturing approach is often sidelined as it doesnt suit the sensibilities of such a fast paced world where time is an expensive commodity. Thank you for sharing these thoughts while appreciating and supporting the true value of nurturing in our lives beyond ourselves .

    #14 It is the difference between manufacturing and nurturing, we are a manufactured society and personal brand is an example of manufacturing - but we do not necessarily see humanity behind a personal brand. How many years did Harvey Weinstein have a personal brand but no one saw his abuses and even know Weinstein vehemently denies he did anything wrong, still using the protection for personal brand to protect his image. The chief problem with "humanity" is that it is not tied to manufacturing but linked to nurturing. Care giving is at the center of humanity but we still relegate nurturing to aspects such as elder care or the duty of care we ascribe to mothering - instead we continue with a society obsessed with manufacturing rather than a society built on nurturing. Renaissance is something we look forward to in the future because our culture and personal image is still manufactured rather than collective humanity being nurtured - your comment #14 gets to the heart of what nurturing looks like when it befits the word "humanity".

    #12 At the root of Creativity is a nurtured thought process. To nurture is to nourish the being with appropriate care.
    Speaking of care giving it is often a part of nurturing which can be rather challenging to say the least .
    In case of elders there can be a lot of unexplained resentment the care giver has to deal with for many seniors may take a while to come to terms with the many aspects of growing old. Patience can have its limits too and with growing intolerance in a world which like you say is more about the sense of self importance the need to acheive much can stifle any thoughts of pursuing time consuming and almost never ending aspects of nurturing . It is true the world is getting a little too self centered . However the realisation of the impacts of an uncaring and indifferent citizens of the world is also hitting home and that too right from the modern changes of family systems in place . The concern for global warming and carbon imprints is touching an all time high for the world now is slowly realising how much it needs to nurture its own living spaces to ensure it has a world left to live at all. And hope is here to stay !

    Humanity runs the gamut from the colded blooded psychopath to the most sensitive empath. For some a sense of nurturing is not even a consideration but beyond the empath, there is the care-giver, there is incredible mothers and not to ignore caring fathers. The care-giver then has a special position that is not always front of mind in our consciousness. We become numb or even ignorant of caregivers whether they be people looking after a loved one at home or a nurse in a hospital still turning up for work hour after hour despite impatient patients, or a fireman who won't let a fire stop them from their primary instinct to save a life. Nurturing may evoke the caregiver within and produce the next great human being, but our society is not predicated on the greatness of humanity, but the greatness of self-image. We take more interest in our personal brand than we do in the nature of our nurture, or in the day-to-day of busyness take for granted those who nurtured us, or those who may yet mentor or coach us - or show us something within ourselves that unleashing a new dimension of caring.

    Nurturing begins at birth. It's so important to take the time to bond w/your baby and tend to their basic physical needs. I know of one person that had a baby recently and the birth was uneventful, she told her mom she wanted her there daily. On the first full day that the new mom and baby were home, the mother gave grandma a bottle to feed her newborn while she slept to get rest during the day. I found this to be unhealthy because she and her baby were missing out on vital bonding time. I hope things have changed in the past week since I heard this story (It was a relative of mine). And nurturing continues from birth on. I watch my daughter with her 17 month old and I am so proud of her. She has natural nurturing tendencies and it shows because our granddaughter is happy, seems very secure with herself, adores her mom and is self reliant in a healthy manner. We need nurturing through out life, even when it comes to being married- it's a two way street. Great topic @Savvy Raj

    Speaking of nurturing in todays family structure, I certainly agree the benefits of nurturing is a two way street .But often in case of working parents even now the majority of nurturing often is still done by women at home unless there is help from the extended family which is ideal . (I am grateful to have my parents support in those times and still do as I think it as invaluable.) Or else in many nuclear familues outside help is often the nurturer. And that brings a totally different set of issues with it . As often so ... if the parents never have quantity and quality time the child looks up to the nurturer and identifies with them for comfort.

    #13 AT one level i totally concur with the thought that EQ/EI are manipulative. Specifically as it applies to media and the marketing/branding process.

    If i have misread your point, please correct me.

    I do feel though that the skill of "knowing" someone/something has given way to demographics, labels and data. This has lead to some pretty empty suit conversations with folks. Emotional gibberish.

    I sense we need some basic home training in understanding circumstances before we explode on to the scene. Active Listening is a skill within the EQ/EI envelope. One i believe we need to actaully start teaching.

    We initiated a new program at our business that required consultant support and licensing. The first few interviews ened without the vendors even listening but telling us how we should do things. Active listening was not present.
    Ian Weinberg
    11/12/2017 #15 Ian Weinberg
    Interesting point @Phil Friedman This begs further clarification. Indeed Steve Jobs , by all EQ (EI) definitions had a rock-bottom score, didn't give a shit for other's sensitivities, took ownership and ran. One big step for evolution and we're all better off for it. Now let's take a step back. The corporate has identified 3 critical values required to thrive into the future 1) EI 2) Innovation and 3) Management of people. So here we really need to define this EI thing: It is a comprehensive awareness of, and connection with one's own emotions and through mirror resonance, an awareness and connection with the emotions of others. This is authentic EI. In this context, the psychopath's comprehensive awareness of emotions is sans an emotional connection and is thus non-authentic. Authentic connections are required to manage people ie Leadership. Leadership with authentic EI will recognize, support and promote individual ownership within the greater organization - to enhance effectiveness and development (evolution). And so authentic EI is much more than dripping in warm fuzzy sensitivities, holding back evolutionary forces. It is truly about posturing in favor of individual ownership (inclusiveness) and evolution through recognition, support and mentoring of the drivers (with just reward). Inherent in this dynamic is value contribution which by definition, will preclude nefariousness. Is there a place for insensitive, driven, psychopathic-types? Sure is. But they will invariably require the support of authentic leadership managed structures to complete the evolutionary process by bringing the 'thing' to fruition, IMHO.
    Phil Friedman
    11/12/2017 #13 Phil Friedman
    #7 You know, @Ian Weinberg, your problem is that you assume generosity of spirit and selfless behavior are traits of a “higher” evolutionary development. Whereas, the scum of the world would argue that such traits retrograde mutatations that pollute the species. Thus, one man’s psycopathy is another’s path to Ubermenchenlicht (I mangle the German language remorselessly in the service of anti- pedanticism) . And so it is for EI, which to my mind converts a natural striving for beneficial self-control into the nefarious practice of control over others. Perhaps EI should be treated as a secret guild that requires for membership a blood oath to use the sorcerer’s skills only for good. Cheers!
    Harvey Lloyd
    11/12/2017 #11 Harvey Lloyd
    One of the best looks at the whole of EQ/EI i have read. If i could add one thought....Self awareness and social awareness always has a goal or expected outcome. We are either socially trying to fit in or in just as many cases we are trying to achieve something. It may be that we need affirmation, support or money. The list is endless.

    But EQ/EI, for me, is the ability to see the heart of the matter someone is presenting. If i am to serve someone within a scope or environment then it is better if i fully understand their motivation, or heart. If i am asked to empty the trash then i could further observe that the individual is seeking to make a good impression on visitors or is feeling disorganized. Extending my efforts beyond the request.

    I belive EQ/EI has gotten a bad rap because of the fluff or smoke we are able to create through the language, but no service follows. We feel good about the presentation, but it takes us nowhere. The process of EQ should give off warning bells when we are emotionally being sold snake oil.

    I've been lots of places and it's usually better when there's order instead of disorder, even if you think people are evil. The price for low intelligence, EQ or IQ usually costs more in the long run.

    Hundreds, if not thousands of articles and even several books have been published about EI and EQ. The total substance of which, I think you've covered superb fashion here. The obstacle is not to learn about what EI is, but to train how to practice it--something that has and will continue to spawn an entire industry of would-be and self-proclaimed "coaches" -- many of whom will, no doubt, come from the ranks of less-than-successful Pilates and other personal fitness trainers. Cheers!

    @Melissa Hughes It could be said that based on the proposition that a high EQ may be used positively or nefariously, that a serial killer as an example, who is emotionally self-aware and aware of the emotionality of others (most notably his/her victims) and derives personal gratification from killing, has a high emotional intelligence. One could further say that they are functioning from their authentic core. In psychological terms however I've described here a true psychopath - suppressed core emotions with well learned superficial emotionality so as to manipulate others in order to achieve gratification for reactive psychopathology. I would propose that this individual is functioning at a very low EQ level despite apparent emotional savvy. The differentiator for a high EQ is an intrinsic drive to contribute value (to self, to others and to the environment). Contributing value can be defined as making something better than it was before you engaged with it.

    Thanks for balancing the view of EQ, @Melissa Hughes! Like guns, money, sex, and most everything, EQ can be used for good and bad. My experience tells me that how something like EQ is used is dependent on 1) is the person coming from their core identity or role identity, and 2) the intent they have. I’ve never taken an EQ course, so I’m unaware of how deeply they get in Into such things. However, I have a very high EQ which I use to help people in positive ways. I recently wrote a post on “EQ and Your Emotional Rescue”.

    The mood meter sounds useful, Melissa. Thanks for the tip. On the subject of emojis I use them merely for illustration and to avoid possible misunderstanding by the text reader, but am also guilty of using the ‘tears of joy’ as an exclamation. I hadn’t really thought of these cute funky faces as being tools to help us analyse our emotions. But who am I to argue against the University of Michigan and a billion text messages. So many emojis, so little time. 😂🤣😂

    #10 I believe i heard Dave Ramsey state, people will not change until the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change. This is the reason for my comment surrounding offering up a reason. The reason can sometimes reduce the pain of change below that of staying the same.

    But all too often i have found that the heart of individuals is desperate to hang onto current methods. The loss would be just too great. In these cases the catalyst will need to be greater than another human can provide.

    Great stuff and thanks for sharing your knowledge and wisdom.

    #8 Hi, my friend, @Lisa Gallagher! I have successfully helped many people with both acute and chronic pain. In the case of chronic pain, what happens is that, even after the body has healed, the brain forgets to stop sending the pain signal to the body part that was injured or hurt. Because it doesn't get the feedback it wants, it increases the pain signal and the sensation becomes even worse. Dr. Ramachandran I mentioned in the article is world-renowned for his work with Phantom Limb. This is where a person whose missing a body part still feels pain as if the body part is still there and he explains this phenomena. Here are some YouTube video testimonials from some of my pain management clients that you'll find interesting and encouraging for your husband: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0p3kTP9fWs, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMoZ-KmoFlI&t=96s, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jx5zTaAuGW0

    #9 Thanks for your contribution, @Harvey Lloyd! Your insights are right on. People have to desire to change to make transformation a reality. It's like the people whom I help stop smoking; I tell them that their life will change as a result of being a non-smoker. Their current friends will drop off and new friends will come into being due to the fact that the person they used to be has changed. No matter the change (smoker to non-smoker, fearful to confident, angry to peaceful, depressed to happy, etc.) When the person transforms, so does their world.

    I read with great interest as it seem that in these days many suffer from the need of emotional rescue. I enjoy the science behind the process as a novice but the reality is the experience of the loop. My own personal experience in this area has narrowed it down to two basic elements. People need a "reason" to let go and they require a "place" to drop it off. Given these two outcomes they can then reconcile their past with their present.

    Within the rescue or what i like to call reframing, the individual is typically unwilling to let go because they realise their entire life is centered around the emotions. Friends, family and social connections have been made with those emotions. To reject the loop would mean all new connections and a new journey with the family.

    It sounds as though you have found some answers and i can only say Godspeed in the journey of assisting others with this very precarious need.

    #3 Yes, @Deborah Levine, emotional and physical pain are created by the mind and, by using neural plasticity, they can both be minimized or eliminated.

    Much of my exploration of neuroscience and the unconscious mind relates to chronic pain. Creating new neural pathways and quieting painful ones is a growing area of research. We definitely need to understand the emotional involvement in unconscious reactions in these stressful times.
