I wrote in the past that most of the country, about two-thirds, would reject Trump and vote against him. I was naive and wrong. I think that eventually, as Trump fails, many will fall off. Probably only that third of the country, like barnacles, will continue to support him. Most of the country cannot. I was wrong. Eventually I may end up being right, most of the country may reject Trump, but I was wildly wrong in the shorter-term. Donald Trump is an exceedingly dangerous individual now. No doubts. We all need to wake up. I will be wrong again. For sure. You too. But Putin is our enemy and Trump appears to be his lackey. We should all watch very closely. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

The Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act ( CARA ) was also approved by Congress in their last session. CARA identifies standards of excellence in addiction treatment care and seeks to bolster key initiatives including public education and emergency responders' access to overdose reversal drugs in a comprehensive plan to end addiction. Even if the ACA is completely repealed without a replacement, a fully funded CARA would provide some assistance to those in need of addiction treatment services. Ending the opioid epidemic is not a partisan issue . Congress' swift actions to repeal the ACA and Medicaid expansions without replacements does not reflect a commitment to ending our drug abuse crisis, just a refusal to prioritize the well-being of the American people. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

They need to join a labor union. Which is what made Hillary Clinton's "ornamental" feminism during the campaign seem so phony. She couldn't have it both ways, and it showed. She couldn't be a glorified shill for Wall Street and, simultaneously, insist that she favored "wage equality," because those two views are mutually exclusive. Wall Street is opposed to wage equality, and opposed to labor unions. Alas, deep-down, so is Clinton. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Right now, today, what is something you could do to stand up for your beliefs? • See life exactly as it is. One of the most insidious aspects of how we think is that assumptions get labeled fact. Taking advantage of that tendency, a disturbing aspect of our Internet-driven culture is that viral stories spread instantly and are assumed real if they fit with our views - even when intentionally seeded with misinformation. Yet some basic facts actually hold true for everyone; for example, gravity works on earth. In your personal relationships, with your children, with your families, encourage everyone to step back and reexamine their basic assumptions. Around race, taxes, environment, health care, education, or anything else, pause, reflect, and seek out whatever objective reality is to be found. Beyond politics, hold ideas up to the light, and ask yourself of each belief you encounter, Is it true? • Practice responsiveness, instead of reinforcing reactivity.

Unless the EU clearly communicates to America how it will push back, it will likely get pushed around. Europe is wise to prioritize continued collaboration with the U.S. on Iran policy, but given the rhetoric of Trump and the track records of his top Iran advisors, it shouldn't bank on it. There are courageous voices calling for the EU to go its own way if Washington takes actions that undermine global security. It remains to be seen whether or not Brussels will listen. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

A New Activity I know it's cliché, but join a gym. Or yacht club. Bowling league. Chess team. Book club. Runners group. Cycling club. Or maybe it is a gym but one that offers group classes that you have to lock in and pay for quarterly (or annually) so you can't back out. Becoming active in a group that forces you to do something is healthy, fun, builds confidence, establishes friendships, and helps to create energy when it comes time to focus on the work stuff. Find your thing! Just don't quit after a month like everyone else does. Stick with it. Create new habits. It could change your life. I'm taking all of these approaches myself. And progress continues. What will be your something new? -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

" Let them know that of course, if someone is in danger, or they are physically hurt, they never need to wait. However, if the need is more of a want and it can wait a minute or two, you would really be happy if they gave you a minute to finish what you were doing so you can give them 100 percent of your focus. And most important, when they do honor your privacy, give you that extra minutes to finish that show, or sit quietly and wait for you to finish your conversation, give them your undivided attention. Reinforce that good behavior by rewarding them with your eyes, ears and time.

These qualities could certainly come in handy during press conferences and daily dealings with the White House Press Corps . Emergency Management Dogs have been found to stabilize and reduce blood pressure and stress levels as well as help their owners be more mindful. When hurricanes, wildfires, terror attacks and other disasters strike, a dog could help the president keep his cool under pressure and figure out how to help. Personal Health Dog owners typically have fewer medical problems and lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure and fewer heart attacks than non-pet owners. They also get more exercise. Adding a dog to the family could help the president stay in good health. Agenda Setting As he creates plans for Social Security, welfare programs, taxes, public education and the like, spending time with the family dog can increase levels of dopamine in the president-elect's brain.

It quickly amassed millions of followers. However, once the official FLOTUS account launched in 2013 , Obama switched gears and stopped tweeting from her personal account.

High in the Swiss Alps here in Davos, we’re straddling a trust gap. Fears of it widening are discussed by leaders from across the global economy in each World Economic Forum meeting I attend. I discussed this with HuffPo Executive Editor Jo Confino this morning on a live feed, PwC’s newly-released CEO survey reflects jitters across society about uncertainty ― as that is the number one concern among business leaders. They are also keenly aware of the lack of trust in government and in business. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

"In our past writings, we have criticized both parties when we believed it was warranted. Today, however, we have no choice but to acknowledge that the core of the problem lies with the Republican Party." Perhaps not surprisingly, the Sunday morning broadcast network political talk shows and much of the media at large wasn't interested in their analysis, which Ornstein told The Washington Post's Greg Sargent was unfortunate given the fact that their assessment "focused on press culpability -- it would be hard to find a more sensitive issue for the media than the question of whether they're doing their job." That simply wasn't the preferred story the Beltway press wanted to tell during the Obama years.

The situation would have been quite different if Zarif's Saudi counterpart, or at least a representative of the Kingdom, was on the panel to hit back with the facts. The bottom line is Saudi Arabia needs to do more to call Tehran's bluffs at international events such as Davos. As for Iran, it needs to put its money where its mouth is and ensure its actions match its rhetoric, otherwise Zarif's comments will resemble nothing more than hot air that will quickly evaporate in the cold Davosian climate. *This blog was originally posted on Arab News . -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Although a ban on personal deliveries to offices seems unlikely. We do need to be making the deliver industry much more efficient in London. It is not at the moment and is using way too much road space, something like 20% of the traffic on the roads in London at the moment is essentially internet deliveries.
