Unbelievably fast. That is how I would describe the start to this new year of 2014. We are at the mid-point of January already. Here in the United States we have a long weekend, with the observance of Martin Luther King (MLK), Jr Day. Many years ago, not […]
I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
All the world is my television and I like to provide commentary on it.
Assuredly, you have had one of those weeks where it started off stressfully and ended with you in an emotional vat of ennui. I knew this week was going to be tough. I had been eagerly anticipating this week for it was make or break time. I was […]

Forget that 35.7% of Americans are considered obese and if you add those that are considered overweight the percentage rises to 69.2%. This isn’t about that. Hell, I’m completely within the lower end of my acceptable BMI range and a California female doctor told me I was fat […]
Ear roaches, naked men in machines, UFOs stop traffic, atomic wedgies and hexes: Is this a Cher song?
We are now 11 days into the New Year. Can I sheepishly ask, how many New Years resolutions have you already cast aside? I made none. So, I am batting 100% in terms of resolutions kept. The Golden Globes are being broadcast tomorrow night and I am extremely […]
In my field of work, where we talk about cultural competency ad nauseam you would be amazed at the stereotypes that arise. I recall observing a training whereby the trainers noted that if you wanted to reach Hispanic women/ Latinas you should do the meetings in the kitchen […]
