Jonathan Haidt is associate professor of psychology at the University of Virginia. His research focuses on the psychological bases of morality across different cultures and political ideology.

He was awarded the Templeton Prize in Positive Psychology in 2001.[1] His book The Happiness Hypothesis examines ten "great ideas" dating from antiquity and their continued relevance to the happy life. A certain portion of his research has been focused on the emotion of elevation. His Moral Foundations Theory looks at the way morality varies between cultures and identifies five fundamental moral...

After an adult speech laying it out like it is President Obama went to talk with Republicans a couple of days later. What did he get? The usual - lies, obfuscations, soundbites and more as if each congressman/senator were campaigning. The poor man was in a roomful of juvenile frat boys with no intention of actually trying to have a discussion. Our system of government is speeding down the path of total failure and the idiots in congress are the most responsible because this president is not part of the failure but will be blamed by a populous too distracted...

Current measurements of economic health are obsolete and unsustainable. Infinite economic growth is impossible and unsustainable so how do you measure a healthy economy. Why is no media outlet here in the US talking about this? At least the BBC is with this article and several others. Continue reading

This article and scenarios are exactly where I think this country is headed. Make no mistake, all the criteria is falling in place and history has shown one thing - we are consistent. The question I constantly ask - are humans evolving? Going rogue in combat boots Continue reading

With the latest Supreme Court decision it is now the right time for political revolution. Let's start by abolishing the 1878 decision that gave corporations the same rights as an individual. Then lest change how candidates are elected to office by: 1. All media exposure needs to be FREE and all viable candidates receive the same amount of airtime. 2. All campaigns financed by public funds and last 8 weeks. 3. Remove the winner take all system and replace with proportional representation. 4. No interest group or indirect interest can put any kind of smear on the airwaves. Just a... Continue reading

I looked at the health section of your magazine and it is the same, tired old stuff. I do like the drawings tho'. My approach to fitness is completely opposite to what your magazine advocates. If you like my approach then let's talk.

Our political system was completely sold down the river by this supreme court under John Roberts. The decision to reverse limits on campaign funding by corporations destroyed democracy in one sweeping blow. From local to national elections the candidate getting elected will be the best that corporate money can buy. Corporate control of all aspects of the american system is now complete. Control of the media, the financial system, healthcare, the legal system and now politics completes the process. And Americans let it happen by how they have voted with their complacency and ignorance. Shame on us and we deserve... Continue reading

Interview on Fresh Air with Stanley Tucci who recently lost his wife to cancer. Here is an excerpt of that interview about her treatment: I'm sad that I am here now without Kate. She was an extraordinary person. She was the strongest person I've ever met, and she died unnecessarily of cancer. We found alternative treatments at the end that were helping her, but it was too late. Too much damage was done by conventional treatments. It was not the cancer that killed her. It was the conventional treatments that killed her. And that's the most frustrating thing - having... Continue reading

Science is recognizing how movement activates brain plasticity and learning. An article called Better Brain New Body discusses brain plasticity and a quote from a neurologist says it well: Ericka Simpson MD, a neurologist at the Methodist Neurological Institute in Houston, helps us understand connection between movement and the brain. “Movement activates more of your brain at once because it involves spatial intelligence, coordination, strength, visual perception, emotion and joy all at once,” says Simpson. “It forces us to make stronger connections. We call it synaptic density.” Not all movement has that property. “Tapping on my desk is not the... Continue reading
