*Drinking a Bottle of Wine Per Week Is Equivalent to Smoking Up
to 10 Cigarettes:

Writing in the British health journal BMC Public Health, researchers say that men and women are not equal when it comes to the risks associated with alcohol as compared to those associated with smoking. In a study titled How Many Cigarettes Are There in a Bottle of Wine, the researchers analyzed the effects of drinking one bottle of wine a week on 1,000 non-smoking men and 1,000 non-smoking women.

Their conclusions show that lifelong consumption of the wine would be the equivalent of smoking 10 cigarettes a week for women and five a week for men. The women were especially susceptible to an increase in breast caner, where the men were more at risk for gastrointestinal tract and liver cancers.

 *Federal Spending Hits Highest Level Since Bank Bailout and
Obama Stimulus:

The federal government spent $1,822,712,000,000 in the first five months of fiscal 2019, the most it has spent in the first five months of any fiscal year since 2009, which was the fiscal year that outgoing President George W. Bush signed a $700-billion law to bailout the banking industry and incoming President Barack Obama signed a $787-billion law to stimulate an economy then in recession. At the same time that federal spending was hitting this ten-year high, federal tax revenues in the first five months of the fiscal year were hitting a four-year low of $1,278,482,000,000.

According to the Monthly Treasury Statement for February, the Treasury spent $1,822,712,000,000 in the five months from October 2018 through February 2019, the first five months of the federal fiscal year.

 *DHS Data Shows Surge of Migrants at the Border So Far in 2019:

The number of immigrants arrested or turned away at the U.S.border with Mexico has climbed rapidly in 2019 compared to recent years, according to Department of Homeland Securitydata. The figures show that attempted border crossings so far this year have reached levels not seen for around a decade. The number of border-crossers usually begins to grow around March due to the warmer weather and tends to peak around May.

However, in just three weeks of March, there have already been almost 66,000 apprehensions and people dubbed “inadmissible.” That’s reportedly around the same level as at the peak of the child-migrant crisis under President Obama in May 2014. A DHS official said that the surge has been driven by an influx of migrant families and unaccompanied children.

*Nicolas Cage Reportedly Files for Annulment Four Days After Marriage:

Nicolas Cage‘s marriage is staying in Vegas. Cage, 55, filed for an annulment four days after tying the knot with Erika Koike, according to sources. The couple reportedly got married the same day they obtained their marriage license on March 23 in Las Vegas, and he filed to split on Wednesday. Koike is a makeup artist and has been with the actor since April.

This was Cage’s fourth marriage, having been previously married to Alice Kim, Lisa Marie Presley and Patricia Arquette.

 *Celebrity Chef Gordon Ramsay Rips Into ‘Snowflake Generation,’ Vows His Kids Will Not Be ‘Entitled’:

Celebrity chef and restaurateur Gordon Ramsay recently took a few jabs at the entitled “snowflake generation” as he detailed his parenting style, which is aimed at keeping his children grounded and grateful. Ramsay and wife Tana have four children ranging from ages 17-21, with one on the way. While his children definitely have the perk of tough love, Ramsay says he’d never hand over a job to one of his kids; he’d rather they go somewhere else to prove themselves and “learn something different” before they can work for their old man.

“You want to work in this business? You f*** off to another chef, learn something different and come back with something new to improve the business,” he said during a recent radio interview..”I don’t want the staff thinking: ‘F*** it’s Ramsay’s kid, we can’t tell them off,'” he said.

“I’m firm, I’m fair and I will give you everything I’ve got to get you to the very top. And that’s it, no bullsh**,” the famed chef added. “I take a lot of flak for being straight and honest but I’m not worried about that f***ing snowflake generation.”

Aiming to keep his children grateful, Ramsay refuses to simply hand over oodles of cash to his offspring, too. “They have a completely different life than I did growing up. I worked my arse off to get out of the sh** mess that I grew up in and they’re grateful, they’re not spoilt,” he  said.

Marina Edwards, Rising Producer and Director, Explains Why She Fights for Justice

Marina Edwards (co-writer, executive producer, director) andJon Edwards (co-writer, executive producer) recently wrapped up their first Indiegogo campaign for “My Love in the Sky,” a short film about a war veteran challenged by returning from Iraq to civilian life. The film is slated to be filmed in Los Angeles in 2019. Now, Marina Edwards opens up about her reasons for fighting for justice, in both her personal life and in the entertainment industry.

“I spent many years working as a lawyer trying to bring justice to the world, believing that life is a clear matter of white and black,” explains Edwards, “Every day in court was a war. Later, I started to ask myself what was the result? The victories in court didn’t always bring the right results – one side could understand “the win” as a green light to continue doing their actions, while the other side would simply become even more angry and stubborn.”

“For me, the logic of “fight and win” didn’t work anymore,” continues Edwards, “this was the first time I asked myself why do people fight for justice? What does it take to live in peace? I shifted my career to the film industry and started creating movies as a writer and director.”

“My goal is to tell stories with social impact, to bring hope to people, to show that the values of art, pure love and human respect can change our world in a better way,” concludes Edwards, “now my guiding slogan in life came to me from Mother Teresa’s statement – ‘I will never fight against war, but I will always support peace.’”

*EXAMINER–COMMENTARY by Jeffrey P. Lieb: 
The study last issue should have looked at long term happiness of people having children. My kids are in their 30’s now. Due to twins, we had 3 in diapers. For the first 5 years, my wife and I thought we would go crazy from the stress.

Then it started to get easier. I am now in awe of my children; they are magnificent! My daughter just gave birth to twins. Her older brother has a boy and a girl. Life is joyful and fulfilling for grandma and grandpa. (It’s not so easy for my daughter and her older brother.)  A fulfilling life is not meant to be easy!!!

*Science Says Having a Kid Is One of the Crappiest Things That
Can Happen to You:

By some measures, new parents are more miserable than people grieving their spouses.

A horrifying study published last week in the journal Demography suggests that being a new parent makes you miserable. The study, by the Canadian demographer Rachel Margolis and others, titled “Parental Well-Being Surrounding First Birth as a Determinant of Further Parity Progression,” was carried out in Germany, a country that recently surpassed Japan as the place with the lowest birthrate in the world.

The researchers set out to understand the difference between the number of children people want, and the number they end up having. German people in particular say they want an average of two kids, and then only have one and a half. This statistic suggests that a huge number of people who want kids think better of it after they have that first one. Why would that be? The study blames a “drop in well-being surrounding first birth,” also known as “unhappiness.”

To gather data, the study asked people about their “overall well-being” over the course of about five years encompassing the three years prior to the birth of a first child, and the two years afterward. Respondents weren’t asked about parenting point blank, because of a “taboo” against admitting that your kids are sucking the life out of you.

The drop in the reported happiness of new parents is beyond the level you might expect from sleepless nights, and dealing with poopy diapers. In fact, somewhat alarmingly, the unhappiness didn’t set in until the first and second year after the birth. And when it did, it was some major misery.

*John Hinckley ‘Happy as a Clam’ 38 Years After Shooting Reagan:

John Hinckley says he’s “happy as a clam” two years after he was discharged from a mental hospital and nearly 38 years since he tried to assassinate President Reagan. Psychological reports recently released by the federal judge who is overseeing Hinckley’s case give new insights on how the would-be assassin is settling back into normal life. He shot and nearly killed Reagan outside a Washington hotel on March 30, 1981. The president’s press secretary, Jim Brady, was also wounded and his death nearly three decades later was ruled a homicide because the shooting left him partially paralyzed.

Hinckley recently told a psychologist: “This is the best I’ve ever felt in my life … I’m happy as a clam, to be honest.” He reportedly runs a small antiques business and has adopted a cat named Theo. However, the report says he’s struggling to maintain relationships and one potential romantic interest last year was so afraid of him that she called the police. After years of gradually expanding Hinckley’s freedom, he was ordered released in July 2016 to go live with his mother in Williamsburg, Virginia. A judge ruled last November that he could can move out of his mother’s house and live independently or with roommates.

*Half Of Americans Battle ‘Gymtimidation,’ Afraid Of Working Out In Front Of Others:

Getting to the gym is a tall task for many adults, but once there, feeling comfortable enough to start working out may be even more of a challenge. A survey of 2,000 Americans found that about half expressed fear of working out in front of others.

The survey, sponsored by protein drink-maker Isopure, found that exercising is a daunting experience for adults who aren’t gym rats. “Gymtimidation” may sound silly, but as many as 50% say it’s a phenomenon they experience when around others at their fitness club. Nearly a third (32%) of respondents report feelings of intimidation when working out near someone who is in excellent shape. Another 17% say they grow intimidated when exercising in front of someone of the opposite sex.

 *Father of Slain Reporter Fighting Google to Take Down
Daughter’s Death Video:

Andy Parker has never watched the footage showing his beautiful TV reporter daughter being shot dead on a live broadcast, and he’s determined to prevent online ghouls from continuing to download it. But nearly four years after the shocking on-air murder, Parker remains locked in battle with the world’s most popular search engine to take down the clip that shows 24-year-old Alison Parker being gunned down in the middle of an interview by a disgruntled former colleague wearing a Go-Pro camera.

Hours after the killer shot Parker and two others, he uploaded the video to social media before taking his own life. “The thing that pisses me off more than anything is that Google profits from my daughter’s murder,” Parker, 65, said. Whenever you click on one of these videos, you leave a digital fingerprint and Google sells the data.”

 *Geraldo: Anti-Trump Media Mob ‘Should Have Their Names Inscribed
on a Monument’:

The names of members of the media who “campaigned so aggressively” to portray President Donald Trump as a Russian operative should be memorialized, Fox News Correspondent Geraldo Rivera said Monday. Riveria, reacting to the release of Attorney General Willam Barr’s summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report finding no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, tweeted that a monument should be erected to “bad faith &/or bad reporting” – complete with the names of the “anti-Trump mob” of reporters and pundits who pushed the collusion narrative: “Anti-Trump mob of investigative reporters-cable news hosts, politicians, pundits-& academics who campaigned so aggressively to portray @realDonaldTrump as a blackmailed tool of the #KGB #PutinsBitch should have their names inscribed on a monument to bad faith &/or bad reporting.”

Will MSNBC pundits, like Nicolle Wallace and Rachel Maddow, apologize on-air, now that Mueller’s investigation finds no evidence of collusion, Rivera wondered in a follow-up tweet: “What are @NicolleDWallace & @maddow going to do tonight? Apologize? Say never mind? And so it goes?”

*EXAMINER–SPOTLIGHT:Dr. Srini Pillay, Best-Selling Author, Examines
the Plight of Millennials

Dr. Srini Pillay, a best-selling author, neuroscientist, tech entrepreneur and an assistant professor at Harvard University, has spent a large chunk of his career subverting ideas on creativity and the processes behind human thinking. His recent book on Amazon, “Tinker Dabble Doodle Try,” has been a hit since its original release in 2017. Now, the acclaimed doctor has some revealing and worrying thoughts on the current millennial condition.

Mental health problems of millennials: According to the American Psychological Association, 12% of millennials have an officially diagnosed anxiety disorder — which is nearly double the percentage of baby boomers. And other sources have found that anywhere from 30–60 percent of millennials are generally anxious. They are also prone to perfectionism and are experiencing higher levels of depression too. A 2018 study demonstrated that millennials have higher rates of binge drinking and substance abuse associated with the global financial crisis.

“Millennial suicide is reaching epidemic proportions,” concludes Pillay, “rather than bickering online, being prejudiced within our own age groups, succumbing to stigma, and being obsessed with work at the expense of all else, let’s work together to develop a loving, caring culture that can take care of one another, be critical in civil ways if we want to be, but not frighten people away from the help they could get by just reaching out. It’s not about pretending to care. It’s about caring because you can.”

*EXAMINER–COMMENTARY by Dennis Prager:
Every year, many thousands of American parents find that the son or daughter they sent to college has been transformed by college into a leftist. For left-wing parents, this may be a blessing, but for parents who are not leftist — not to mention conservative — it is often painfully jolting. It is jolting because their beloved child now holds America in contempt; prefers socialism to capitalism; regards all white people and police as racist; believes the BibleChristianity and Judaism are not only nonsense, but dangerous nonsense; no longer believes men and women are inherently different — or even that male and female objectively exist; is disinterested in getting married and having children; believes the president of the United States is a fascist — as are all those who voted for him; and supports the suppression of speech that he or she regards as “hate speech.”

While this is music to the ears of left-wing parents, most traditionally liberal parents will not be all that happy with this transformation. Unlike leftists, most liberals do love America and think that, despite its flaws, it is worthy of respect. They do not believe male and female are subjective categories, and they believe in free speech — even for “hate speech.” For conservative parents, the transformation is far worse. “Nightmare” is not too strong a description. Not only does their child hold everything they cherish in contempt, their child, who loved and respected them a year or two before, now holds them in contempt.

*The Days of Even General
Consensus Seem Lost:

“We’re at war,” one frustrated Californian wrote to her local paper. “Not with another country, not with terrible diseases and plagues, not with ruthless dictators. We are at war with ourselves.” Red, blue, purple – America is a tangle of ideologies all pulling in different directions. These days, as the debates rage on, the map no longer seems to show state lines – but ideological battle lines. It’s not as if Americans have always seen eye to eye on every issue. But the days of even general consensus seem lost. Things that we used to take for granted – values like common decency and civility – are suddenly rare. Issues that were once uncontested – the value of a fully born human life – are suddenly grounds for fierce debate. In the states, the see-saw battles are even more pronounced.

In IllinoisNew York, and Rhode Island, locals have watched leaders fight to make newborn killing legal – while Missouri, North Carolina, and Arkansas try to stop doctors from dismembering fetus in the womb. In one state, legal infanticide is a street party. In another, it’s a cause for community mourning. And it’s not just abortion. On education, sexuality, gender identity, immigration, and counseling, the gulfs are growing.

But how people think about the issues is just one part of the divide. As noted in the Harvard Political Review, “According to Pew Research, there are no issues that are widely considered top priorities by both Democrats and Republicans today. The average partisan gap between the parties’ rankings of priority issues in 2019 is 19 points, representing a 36 percent increase over the last two decades.” As reported by Pew, “[E]ven as recently as 2014, the top priorities of Democrats and Republicans were much more aligned than they are today.”

There are profound differences in how the two sides view the world today. Not since slavery has there been such a stark contrast between the ideologies of the states. America survived, but barely. Of course, the silver lining is that things can shift quickly. We’ve seen entire scripts flip on abortion after the New York law. In a matter of weeks, the number of people calling themselves “pro-life” jumped by 17 points. Change is possible – but it’s also up to us. As William Penn once said, “Governments, like clocks, go from the motion men give them … and as governments are made and moved by men, so by them they are ruined too … Let men be good, and the government cannot be bad.”

 *Trigger Warnings Only ‘Trivially Helpful’ For Trauma Patients: Study:

A pair of studies into the effectiveness of trigger warnings for people suffering from trauma agree that they are only “trivially helpful,” according to the New York Times. In one study, conducted by Mevagh Sanson of the University of Waikato in New Zealand, subjects were either given a trigger warning or not before being exposed to short stories and videos with negative themes including child abuse, murder, car accidents and physical abuse.

“Although people were distressed by the negative materials we showed them, they were no more or less distressed if they’d seen a trigger warning first.” A second study, published by the Journal of Experimental Psychology by researchers at Flinders University in Australia asked 1,600 subjects they recruited online to look at photos that could be positive, negative or neutral, according to the New York Times.

 *Parents Refuse To Facilitate ‘Sex Change’ Of Autistic Son, So Authorities Threaten To Put Him In Foster Care:

Parents of a teenage son who has Asperger’s and autism were threatened by authorities to have their child placed in foster care after they refused to help facilitate a so-called “sex change” of the boy. Recalling the horrifying ordeal, the couple, who wished to remain anonymous, claimed an NHS clinic in the U.K. said their then-14-year-old boy should be put on hormone-blockers since he told them he thought he was a girl. The parents, believing their child’s autism played a role in the declaration of gender confusion, refused to cooperate with the “transition,” particularly since the blockers can cause irrevocable harm.

After mom and dad pulled their son from the gender clinic, school officials reported the parents to child services for “emotional abuse” due to their objections to the sex change. One of the teachers told the parents “that they should find alternative accommodation for their son or else he would be put into temporary foster care.” A month later, the couple was visited by local authorities concerning the complaint. Desperate to keep their child out of foster care, they allowed their boy to live with a family friend.

 *Death Rate Is Outpacing Birth
Rate in America:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported late last year that Americans aren’t having enough babies to replace themselves. In fact, a record one in five American women will never have children, and those who do will, on average, never exceed two. As a result, the death rate is outpacing the birth rate, which means—except for immigration—the U.S. has joined many developed countries on the long, slow road of population decline.

That’s bad news. Not having enough children as a society has costs that are hard to appreciate on the individual level. We know from examples like Japan and much of Europe that aging countries become economically top-heavy, especially those that promise extensive government services to the elderly. This results in runaway aging and population decline, and negatively impacts every sector of the economy except for maybe healthcare, depending on how you look at that one. It also places heavier and heavier burdens on the shoulders of an ever-shrinking workforce of young people, which leaves them even less likely to have kids.

On a deeper level, young members of a graying society lose hope for the future, or stop planning for it altogether. In Japan, this hopelessness manifests as one of the highest rates of suicide among youth in the developed world. To be clear, the United States is not Japan, but as Jonathan Last writes in his book, “What to Expect When No One’s Expecting,” there’s no example in history of a shrinking society experiencing long-term prosperity. 

 *Illegal Released By De Blasio Bites Off ICE Agent’s Finger:

The White House is strongly condemning New York City after it says sanctuary city policies led to the release of an illegal immigrant who later bit off the finger of an ICE agent trying to apprehend him. “New York’s dangerous ‘sanctuary’ policies are directly responsible for the egregious and violent harm suffered by this courageous ICE officer,” White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said in a statement.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokeswoman explained to The Daily Caller that Dominicannational Christopher Santos Felix “entered the United Stateson a visitor’s visa in June 2015, but failed to leave within the required timeframe.” Felix then racked up a litany of criminal charges, including driving while intoxicated, before he was arrested for assault by the New York City Police Department on Sept. 29, 2018. 

The ICE spokeswoman continued that they requested a detainer be put on Felix so that he could be taken into federal custody, but as a result of New York City’s sanctuary city policies, he was then let go. “On March 3, 2019, Santos Felix was arrested by ERO for immigration violations. At the time of the arrest, Santos Felix allegedly assaulted an ERO officer and is now facing federal prosecution,” the spokeswoman said.

Brett Vance, Host of Jet Jockeys, Weighs in on the Challenges of Leadership

Great companies are forced to constantly maintain an image of unity and strength, even when the executive team might not see eye to eye. Easier said than done, however. At the end of the day, executives are still just people, and people often have wildly different ideas of what defines and drives success.

According to Jet Jockeys Host Brett Vance, there are a few different ways this can be possible. “One of my favorite topics is Leadership,” explains Vance, “as a former Air Force Officerand Commander of a Flight Test Squadron, I have some significant hands-on experience with this concept.”

It’s true. Vance has had a decorated career as a military test pilot, and Jet Jockeys is his newest exciting venture. The docu-reality series involves values such as leadership and bravery, and Vance does for aviation enthusiasts what Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs has done for the dignity of the trades and what Neil deGrasse Tyson of Cosmos has done for our sense of wonder about the universe. The sacrifices, accomplishments, and challenges of pilots are front and center in each episode, and leadership is also commonly addressed.

“Absolutely foundational to leadership success is competency in your field,” Vance continues, “you must have the technical expertise and commensurate experience in your field to succeed in a leadership position. People will ask you for advice and seek your opinions in that field, so you have to be comfortable executing every aspect of what you do.”

The next step might not be easy for those who are socially inhibited. Vance believes that getting out of “your shell” is the only way to keep advancing as a leader. “You have to surround yourself with people who are smarter than you,” states Vance, “the leaders around you have been installed in their respective staff positions because they are excellent at their jobs and also have significant leadership skills in their own fields. When you as a commander need a particular service from one of these offices, seek their counsel. You have to make the effort and introduce yourself.”

“When I was first assigned as a U.S. Air Force Squadron Commander, I was required to attend what we called Squadron Commander School.
