Senator Ted Kennedy: Tremendous Humanity

nyc 012.jpg
Maeve Hickey, photographer for the “America In Ireland” project, was kind enough to share one of her photos of Senator Edward Kennedy with us and her remembrances of this most historic photo shoot.
“This photo, in which Senator Edward Kennedy’s tremendous humanity is so evident, was taken on a blistering summer morning in Washington two years ago.
“Our meeting was without doubt the high point in a fascinating photo project – “America in Ireland,” which explored the multifaceted manifestations of America, its people and culture, in Ireland.
“The project brought me into the presence of remarkable and sometimes surprising places and people. Among the latter were the dancers Michael Flatley and Jean Butler, the novelist JP Donleavy, two Choctaw Indians who come every year to the wilds of County Mayo to commemorate the Irish Famine, and, of course, Senator Kennedy.
“I met the Senator in his Washington office and was touched by his warmth and generosity, and moved by his genuine dedication – a dedication that was going to keep him on the floor of the senate that night for a filibuster!
“He offered to sit for his portrait at his desk alongside his brother’s presidential flag and the flag of Ireland and again on the sofa, the wall behind him a mosaic of poignant family and national memories, including portraits of his lost brothers and nephew.” ~ Maeve Hickey

The Fat Fight: Are you pouring on the pounds?

A Serious Sugar Shout-Out from Our Lady of Weight Loss. According to the American Heart Association (AHA) the average American will munch through, chow down and/or guzzle 22 teaspoons, or 355 calories of sugar today (and tomorrow and the next day)!
For those of you who are thinking, “Not me, I only put 2 teaspoons in my one cup of coffee in the morning,” think again!
Sugar is added to – geeze – just about every packaged food out there. Take a look at the labels and word up – if any of these words appear – you are ingesting sugar, big time!
corn sweetener
corn syrup
dextrose glucose
high fructose corn syrup
honey
maltose
malt syrup
molasses
sucrose
syrup

The biggest problem is that we are, on average, consuming 355 calories per day of empty calories that do absolutely nothing for us but rather work against us vs. nutrient rich calories that help us to burn bright and happy throughout the day. Sugar is associated with obesity, having high blood pressure, high levels of triglycerides, and oxidative stress and inflammation.
What to do?
Read labels! At the very least, own up to what you are doing to yourself!
Eliminate soft drinks and other sugar-sweetened beverages. Just one can of soda contains 130 calories and 8 teaspoons of sugar.
Steer clear of process foods! Go Fresh!
The Outer Limits!
The AHA suggests that women consume no more than 6 teaspoons per day (about 100 calories or 25 grams) of added sugar; and men no more than 9 teaspoons (about 150 calories or 37.5 grams).

Sundae Puzzle: Mandala – the perfect circle

Click to Mix and Solve
This week’s Sundae Puzzle is inspired by my yesterday’s visit to the Rubin Museum. Well, actually it was inspired by my visit to the Rubin Museum’s gift shop, which housed many books and gifts that were from India and Tibet.
Lakshmi, is the Hindu and Jain goddess of wealth, prosperity and good fortune. The consort of Vishnu, she is said to have taken different forms to be with him in each of his incarnations. She is a principal object of worship during Divali, when her presence is sought in homes, temples, and businesses for the whole of the year to come.
The Exhibit that I saw was worth seeing, as well!
Art’s Mandala: The Perfect Circle
“This exhibition explores the mandala, one of Tantric Buddhism’s most widely used meditational tools. Although mandalas have been assigned any number of definitions, from magic circles to cosmic diagrams, few of these meanings are either specific or expansive enough. The exhibition seeks to both refine and deepen our understanding of the mandala, decoding its structure, meaning, and related practices.”
Watch the online exhibition!
