Fox's Charles Payne suggests universal health care will kill Americans' motivation to accomplish anything in life – Media Matters for America

Motivation
CHARLES PAYNE (FOX BUSINESS HOST): As far as the medical, you know, where we're coming on health care, it seemed to me that the moderates did OK last night. Biden did OK. And because, you know, when you start talking about trillions of dollars, and how you're going to raise that money, I still don't think Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders -- I mean Bernie Sanders have adequately explained to the American public how they get this done. STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Well, Bernie tried to explain and Elizabeth, when she had a follow-up question, did not answer the question. PAYNE: Right. DOOCY: But the big question is for the people who were watching the debate last night, do you think they understand the Democrats' plans, and do they like them? PAYNE: No, they don't understand the plans. Becaus...

There is no denying that social media is necessary for a company or service provider to be in business in 2019. It is here to stay, and it will continue to evolve.

Marketing blends art and behavioral sciences, such as psychology and sociology, and makes use of information technology to interpret the data. Social media marketing focuses ...

Ask Amy: Why do I lack motivation to do things I love to do? – AL.com

Motivation
Dear Amy: I love my job and career.My manager is flexible and kind, my coworkers are helpful and fun to work with and the work is challenging and enjoyable. It's what I want to do with my life.But, when faced with tasks, I somehow lack the motivation to finish them until the very last second. This has been a problem in a lot of areas of my life (mostly housework and previously, schoolwork). I don't have ADHD or depression, but I do have some anxiety, and I don't know if it is related. I am in therapy for other things, but have yet to hit on a solution.Sometimes, my brain is screaming, "Shut that browser window and do the thing they're paying you to do!" but then I watch myself NOT do that.The work gets done and it gets done well and on its due date, but for the days or hours leading up,...

Carrying On: True Meditation in the Self-Help Era – The Georgetown Voice

Self Help
When I first started practicing Buddhism at age 11, I became the odd one out in my family of Catholics and atheists. Piles of sutras, Buddha images, and prayer beads crowded my room. I took a trip to see the Dalai Lama at Emory University during my sophomore year of high school, and I constructed a small altar on my childhood chest.

I will meet you on that field, and sir, love will win.”Therein lies why Williamson’s mes
