Comments Off on App Action: Parents Can Block Teen Texting and Driving

Teens and texting are a familiar pair but it can also be a dangerous combination behind the wheel. A move from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office is intended to help prevent distracted driving. Fingers typing, eyes averted from the road: for too many teens by the time they look up it’s too late. Now parents have a tool to help reduce risky driving. The teen driver safety program from Esurance was approved for policy holders in New York by Cuomo. Check to see if it is approved in your...

Comments Off on Five Ways To Stand Out From The Competition

1. Tone down the enthusiasm. Salespeople love to show their enthusiasm to prospects about their product or service. The problem is that every salesperson uses the same fake enthusiasm, and prospects are on to this gig. It’s time to par back on the histrionics and simply be real and sincere. 2. Stop trying to persuade. All of your competitors are out right now trying to persuade their prospects to buy from them. Persuasion is a very old-school strategy in selling, and it simply...

So...

Comments Off on Gumbo: The Southern Comfort Food

For some, the changing of the leaves from green to vibrant splashes of red and yellow means the New England Patriots preparing to do battle against any and all challengers.

I have visited New Orleans several times and during these visits I have always tried to take a cooking class or two. So in honor of my son, I would...

Comments Off on Things I’d Tell My 50-Something Self: #2 Health is Everything

“Martha: Throughout the 90’s and for most of your life, you considered yourself invulnerable. Good genes, basically excellent health, with a physical education teacher Mom whose solution to every problem was to “go for a run” or “play a set of tennis.” You thought your body would last forever. You’d crave a pint of Ben & Jerry’s and eat the whole thing. But, hey, you believed you were healthy. Elegant self-care was an abstract idea rather than a practical necessity....

Comments Off on Can You Lose Weight With Yoga?

This is one of the most common questions I get from people regarding the yoga practice. With regards to eating, I personally am mostly raw vegan, however, I believe that yoga targets the weight issue on a much deeper level. Most eating is emotional and related to stress. People overeat and snack typically when they are tired, overwhelmed, or stressed. When we were little, our parents gave us food and love, and so it is common to equate food with love.
