Stephen Colbert Imagines Another Batch Of Donald Trump’s Postcards Home

Donald Trump has got the postcard-writing bug. Kind of.

On Friday’s “Late Show,” Stephen Colbert imagined another batch of notes that Trump has been sending back to his family members and allies during his first big trip abroad as president.

“The Pope has a Golden Throne too!” he writes to his son, Donald Trump Jr., in one of his missives, referencing meeting Pope Francis at the Vatican.

“But for some reason, his doesn’t flush,” he adds.

Check out the rest of the postcards in the clip above.

German Kindergartens To Report Parents For Refusing Vaccine Advice Under New Law

Germany will pass a law next week obliging kindergartens to inform the authorities if parents fail to provide evidence that they have received advice from their doctor on vaccinating their children, the health ministry said on Friday.

Parents refusing the advice risk fines of up to 2,500 euros ($ 2,800) under the law expected to come into force on June 1.

Vaccination rules are being tightened across Europe, where a decline in immunization, has caused a spike in diseases such as measles, chicken pox and mumps, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).

“Nobody can be indifferent to the fact that people are still dying of measles,” German health minister Hermann Groehe told Bild newspaper. “That’s why we are tightening up regulations on vaccination.”

Italy made vaccination compulsory this month after health officials warned that a fall-off in vaccination rates had triggered a measles epidemic, with more than 2,000 cases there this year, almost ten times the number in 2015.

Lack of public trust in vaccines has become an important global health issue. Experts say negative attitudes may be due to fears over suspected side-effects and hesitancy among some doctors.

In 10 European countries, cases of measles, which can cause blindness and encephalitis, had doubled in number in the first two months of 2017 compared to the previous year, the ECDC said last month.

That is leading to greater activism among parents and public health officials. Last week, a German court ruled that a father could insist that his child be vaccinated over the objections of the child’s mother because it was in the child’s interest.

“I call this one the lawnmower,” said Meyers. “He grabbed it like he was going to keep it. If you get a body part close to Trump he thinks it’s a gift.”

Never Good Enough: Why Millennials Are Obsessed With Self-Improvement

A version of this article was originally published on Forbes. Sign up for Caroline’s newsletter to get her writing sent straight to your inbox.

Millennials may be perceived as narcissistic, lazy, entitled and fragile, but we’re more determined to improve ourselves than the generations calling us that.

In 2015, 94 percent of millennials reported making personal improvement commitments (compared with 84 percent of Boomers and 81 percent of Gen Xers). And we’re willing to pay the price: While Boomers said they’d spend an average of $ 152 a month on self-improvement, millennials anticipated spending nearly twice that — though our average income is half as much. Our strategies range from new workout regimes and diet plans to life coaching, therapy and apps designed to improve wellbeing.

This is why Boston-based consulting agency BrightHouse recently asked me: “Why are millennials so obsessed with ‘getting better’ or becoming ‘more exceptional’?”

It’s a pertinent question for companies seeking to reach Gen Y and cater to what we care about. Self-improvement is, after all, a $ 10 billion dollar per year business in the U.S. alone and one of the few industries that doesn’t plummet in the throws of recession. But it’s also relevant to millennials themselves, who anxiously wonder if they’ll ever be good enough.

For both millennials and the businesses trying to engage them, here were my answers:

1. We’re spoiled with possibility.

The vast majority of American millennials have our basic needs like food, shelter and security consistently fulfilled. We now enjoy (and suffer from) the unprecedented luxury of choosing from an ever-expanding selection of consumer goods, media content, career possibilities, romantic partners, living spaces, lifestyles, educational pursuits and diets.

With these options comes the opportunity to pursue our purpose in infinite ways. This may be why the catch-phrase “follow your passion” has exploded in the last 20 years. We’re safe, full, vaccinated, and connected to the Internet. Now what? According to A.H. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, we’re ready to self-actualize. No excuses. But that’s a lot of pressure:

2. We’re haunted by our own expectations.

We don’t need research to tell us (though it does) that Gen Y is idealistic. Our expectations are, in fact, higher than any other generation’s ever were. “Unfortunately,” muses Tim Urban from Wait But Why, “the funny thing about the world is that it turns out to not be that easy of a place, and the weird thing about careers is that they’re actually quite hard.”

And, contrary to stereotypes that millennials have inflated views of ourselves, we know when we’re failing. According to a study by Leadership IQ, just 28 percent of millennials think their communication skills are better than their peers’ (in contrast to 42 percent of 50 year olds who think so). Likewise, only 35 percent of millennials think their writing skills surpass their peers’—compared to 49 percent of 60 year olds who do.

Our impractical expectations coupled with our realistic, or even overly critical, performance self-assessment produces a gap between how we’re doing and how we think we should or could be doing. Our unmet ambition fuels our self-improvement fixation.

3. We’re taunted by everyone else.

Our conviction that we don’t measure up is exacerbated by an online world casting exactly that illusion. Google “millennials” and you’ll encounter articles such as “The Most Narcissistic Generation”, “7 Reasons Millennials Are The Worst Generation” and “The Me Me Me Generation”. We’ve been called Generation Me, iGen, Generation WTF, divas, Millies and Gen Y Protagonists & Special Yuppies.

In one Vanity Fair article, James Wolcott writes, “Millies require a constant drizzle of compliments and acknowledgments—strokings and pokings—to remain motivated or at least stop fidgeting.” We feel compelled, perhaps subconsciously, to disprove the stereotype.

Meanwhile, 75 percent of millennials use social media (and that was in 2010), and every one of them sees other millennials succeeding in high contrast. By crafting our social media accounts to parade only the most flattering, impressive aspects of our lives, we’ve made ourselves all false poster children. As a result, we feel envious, inadequate and, for better or worse, motivated to be better.

Fortunately, our obsession pays off. Millennials don’t just make more resolutions; we keep them. In 2014, 76 percent of millennials reported that they kept their New Year’s resolutions, compared to 60 percent of Boomers. We’re also, according to one study, better able (and more eager) to convert training to tangible progress than Gen X.

Is our self-improving a good thing? We may be constantly grasping at straws, improved but insatiable: perpetually disappointed. Or perhaps we’ve encountered the optimal conditions to make a dent in the world and never quit. It’s an individual answer.

George R. R. Martin Likens Donald Trump To His Most Sadistic ‘Game Of Thrones’ Character

George R. R. Martin is bringing winter early to President Donald Trump.

The acclaimed author has compared the commander-in-chief to one of the most brutal, sadistic and despicable characters from “Game of Thrones”— King Joffrey Baratheon:

“I think Joffrey is now the king in America,” Martin said in an interview with Esquire published Wednesday. “And he’s grown up just as petulant and irrational as he was when he was thirteen in the books.”

Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire book series is the basis of HBO’s fantasy epic. Shortly before the 2016 election, he said Trump was “unfit to lead this nation.”

Actor Kit Harington, who portrays the character Jon Snow in the show, also commented on the current occupant of the White House — and revealed why he refuses to call Trump by his official title.

“Mr. Donald Trump — I wouldn’t call him President, I’ll call him Mister,” he said. “I think this man at the head of your country is a con artist.” 

Read the full Esquire interview here.

Health Bill’s Score Still Breathtakingly Bad

The new Congressional Budget Office numbers are in for the House healthcare bill, and they’re almost as breathtakingly bad as the first version’s score. Instead of 24 million Americans losing health insurance in the next ten years, now “only” 23 million will lose health insurance. The number of people who will lose health insurance next year alone stayed the same, at 14 million. Medicaid funding will be cut by $ 834 billion, instead of $ 880 billion. This would save a paltry $ 12 billion a year, instead of the $ 15 billion a year the original bill would have saved. That’s a lot of pain for not very much money saved. Which Democrats are going to be pointing out soon, in midterm ads.

This legislation had two major goals. The first was to provide a whopping tax cut for wealthy people. The second was for Republicans to be able to claim “we repealed Obamacare.” Measured on those metrics, the bill is a success. Measured by any other metric, it is a complete disaster.

The top-line numbers do not tell this story adequately. A $ 12 billion change in the federal budget is peanuts, after all. But when you dig into the numbers, the intent of the legislation becomes more obvious. Here are a few crucial paragraphs from the C.B.O. report (emphasis added):

CBO and JCT estimate that, over the 2017-2026 period, enacting H.R. 1628 would reduce direct spending by $ 1,111 billion and reduce revenues by $ 992 billion, for a net reduction of $ 119 billion in the deficit over that period. The provisions dealing with health insurance coverage would reduce the deficit, on net, by $ 783 billion; the noncoverage provisions would increase the deficit by $ 664 billion, mostly by reducing revenues. The largest savings would come from reductions in outlays for Medicaid and from the replacement of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA’s) subsidies for nongroup health insurance with new tax credits for nongroup health insurance (see figure below). Those savings would be partially offset by other changes in coverage provisions ― spending for a new Patient and State Stability Fund, designed to reduce premiums, and a reduction in revenues from repealing penalties on employers who do not offer insurance and on people who do not purchase insurance. The largest increases in the deficit would come from repealing or modifying tax provisions in the ACA that are not directly related to health insurance coverage ― such as repealing a surtax on net investment income, repealing annual fees imposed on health insurers, and reducing the income threshold for determining the tax deduction for medical expenses.

Below this is a chart, breaking down the impact of various parts of the bill. Medicaid is slashed a jaw-dropping $ 834 billion, and tax credits for people to buy insurance gets hit by $ 276 billion. Where does all this money go? Mostly to “noncoverage provisions,” to the tune of $ 664 billion. What are “noncoverage provisions”? Here’s the explanation (emphasis added):

Repeal or delay of taxes on high-income people, fees imposed on manufacturers, and excise taxes enacted under the ACA. Modification of various tax preferences for medical care.

Got that? We’ve got to slash Medicaid to give a huge tax break to “high-income people.” And 23 million of our fellow Americans can crawl off into the woods and die, because this entire exercise was nothing more than a way to cut taxes on the ultra-wealthy. As I said, Democrats should already be drafting their campaign ads around this basic fact.

By magnanimously allowing an extra million people to keep their health insurance, the Republicans did fix one glaring problem with their first attempt. Now the number of uninsured will be exactly what it would have been if Obamacare had never happened. Incredibly, the first draft of this bill somehow denied health insurance to a million more people than a flat Obamacare repeal would have done. So at least now Republicans can’t be accused of making things even worse than they would have been if Obama had failed to pass his law.

Still, “things won’t be worse than the status quo before Obamacare” isn’t really a rousing campaign slogan for the GOP. Democrats will be pointing out that this bill is in no way real deficit reduction, since after slashing Medicaid by $ 834 billion it only saves the government $ 119 billion in the end ― because of the $ 664 billion tax windfall.

Republican senators have all but announced they’re tossing the House bill out and starting with a blank sheet of paper. They may come up with their own bill, or they may be incapable of reaching agreement among themselves (if only three Republican senators decide not to vote for a bill, it will die ― a pretty thin margin). If the Senate acts and produces a slightly-less-breathtakingly-bad bill, then the focus may shift before the election cycle really gets underway. But whether the Senate acts or not, the House votes are already on the record. They voted for this Draconian bill, and their Democratic opponents should take every opportunity to point it out to their constituents.

The House Republicans congratulated themselves for throwing 23 million people off their health insurance. They slashed Medicaid by over $ 800 billion. They handed most of this money out to the wealthiest Americans, for no reason whatsoever. By doing so, they are saving a grand total of $ 12 billion a year in a $ 4 trillion budget ― a deficit reduction of roughly one-third of one percent. The numbers are in, and they’re bad. Spectacularly bad. Breathtakingly bad. Whatever else happens, House GOP members won’t be able to run away from them.

U2 frontman Bono revealed just why he thinks Donald Trump isn’t up to the job of president.

The musician was outlining to Jimmy Kimmel Tuesday his mission to eradicate extreme poverty and stressed that he has “so much respect” for a lot of the people who had voted Trump into the White House.

Bono said he understood why the political process left so many Americans angry and disillusioned. “But I don’t think he’s the cure for this problem, and I think he might even make it worse,” he added. 

The singer suggested there was no evidence from Trump’s life that shows “that he has the people who are hardest hit in mind.”

“That really saddens me because I know he likes to see their faces in the crowd but I don’t think he wants to know who they are when they go home,” Bono added.

Check out the full interview above.

8 Habits That Make Millennials Stressed, Anxious And Unproductive

A version of this article was originally published on Forbes. Sign up for Caroline’s newsletter to get her writing sent straight to your inbox.

According to the American Psychological Association (APA), millennials experience more stress and are less able to manage it than any other generation. More than half of us admit to having lain awake at night during the past month from stress.

Not surprisingly, millennials are also more anxious than older Americans. The APA reports that 12 percent of millennials have a diagnosed anxiety disorder—almost twice the percentage of Boomers. On a non-clinical scale, a BDA Morneau Shepell white paper discovered that 30 percent of working millennials have general anxiety, while a 2014 American College Health Association (ACHA) assessment found that anxiety regularly afflicts 61 percent of college students.

Anxiety not only harms our wellbeing but also sabotages our productivity. The ACHA assessment found that the top two tolls on students’ academic performance were stress and anxiety. Two-thirds of millennials interviewed by BDA  attribute declining work performance to anxiety.

Sources of millennial anxiety may include a tough job market and student debt as well as psychological causes I’ve covered previously such as ambition addiction, career crises and choice-overload. But even our day-to-day behaviors can incite anxiety. Here are eight common habits that instigate stress and compromise our potential:

1. Bad sleep habits

Perhaps the most prevalent contributor to anxiety is poor sleep. A study by the University of California at Berkeley found that lack of sleep “may play a key role in ramping up the brain regions that contribute to excessive worrying.” Common causes of insufficient sleep include going to bed at different times, not making sleep a priority and spending time on phones or laptops right before bed.

Instead:

Calm Clinic, an online magazine dedicated to anxiety management, suggests forming a long, boring nighttime routine free from technology, keeping a journal by your bed to write down thoughts that keep you awake, and exercising during the day to wear out your body.

2. Skipping sustenance

Eating consistently regulates not only our metabolism and insulin levels but also our mental stability.

“Waiting too long to eat or missing out on breakfast may lead to unsteady blood sugar levels, which can cause anxiety-like sensations, including shakiness, dizziness, confusion, and difficulty speaking,” writes Body and Health. Dehydration has a similar effect. Because food and water are biological needs, anxiety naturally follows hunger and thirst.

Instead:

Eat meals regularly. Keep granola bars or nuts at your desk or in your purse. Bring a water bottle to work and sip it throughout the day. Have a glass of water right when you wake up and before you go to sleep.

3. Drinking coffee

Drinking coffee makes us more alert and, in many cases, helps us perform better on short-term tasks. But it can also make people jittery, irritable and nervous, especially if they’re already predisposed to anxiety. Sensitivity to caffeine is, in fact, heightened in people with panic disorder and social phobia, and caffeine can provoke panic attacks in some individuals. Caffeine is also diuretic, which can cause dehydration—an anxiety trigger established above.

Instead:

Try weaning off coffee by switching to just one cup a day, decaf or black tea. If you feel calmer and more in control after a couple weeks without it, commit to quitting and pull out all the stops.

4. Sitting

America’s surge of anxiety symptoms parallels our increasingly sedentary lifestyles. But, until a recent review by BMC Public Health, it was unclear whether the two were actually linked. After lengthy analysis, researchers found that the risk of anxiety risk increases as sedentary behavior increases—and, specifically, sitting time spikes one’s likelihood of experiencing anxiety.

Instead:

If you work at a desk all day, you’re not doomed. Get up and walk around every ninety minutes. Offset your sitting time with regular exercise, which halves your risk of anxiety and depression.

5. Your phone 

A 2014 study by Baylor University found that American students spend an average of nine hours a day on their phone. Of course, technology vastly improves our lives in innumerable ways. But too much of it makes us anxious. Screen-based entertainment increases central nervous system arousal, which can amplify anxiety. Social media is similarly associated with low moods and depression.

Instead:

Next time you’re waiting or have nothing to do, leave your phone in your pocket or purse. Relinquish it as a means of alleviating boredom and instead use it consciously as needed for its useful functions.

6. Not “clocking out”

According to data from FORBES@Work State of Mind Project, millennials become anxious and irritated when work intrudes on our personal lives. But our bad work-life balance is our own choosing. BDA’s assessment explains, “Millennials do not believe that productivity should be measured by the number of hours worked at the office, but by the output of the work performed. They view work as a ‘thing’ and not a ‘place.’” Even after we leave the office, we’re still at work.

Instead:

We can still be ambitious, work long hours and impress our bosses without sacrificing psychological health and personal boundaries. So clock out: In your calendar, schedule a defined, consistent time at night to stop working. When time’s up, mark that task complete and go take care of yourself.

7. Netflix and hanging out

You may think snuggling up on the couch and watching a movie will help you unwind, but research disproves this trend.

In one study, participants felt more depressed and anxious after watching just two hours of TV than those who didn’t. Another study found that those with anxiety and depression spend significantly more time on the computer and watching television. While resting reduces anxiety short-term, research reveals that its effect is short lived, particularly compared with exercise.

Instead:

Do anything but watch TV when you’re done with work. Go on a walk, grab drinks, knit, work, draw, write, sit in your room and look at the wall, call your mom, actually cook dinner, build something, play badminton.

8. Hanging out with anxious people

You might feel like you’ve found someone you can vent to who understands you, but studies show that ruminating on anxiety often makes it worse. Furthermore, participating in “intergroup anxiety” increases one’s anxious behaviors.

Instead:

Seek out people who level your mood. After you hang out with someone, ask yourself if you feel stable and well—or if you’re hyped up and on edge. It’s easy to spend less time with certain people once you’ve decided they’re bad for your health.

If the annoyance, pain and performance impairment of day-to-day anxiety isn’t enough to quit these bad habits, perhaps this is: According to Harvard Medical School, anxiety is implicated in heart disease, migraines, chronic respiratory disorders and gastrointestinal conditions.

Despite our youth, chronic anxiety is not sustainable.  By swapping out these daily practices, we can improve our moods and our lives one habit a time.

Former Trump Advisor James Woolsey Slams Obama As Manchester Attack Unfolds

Former CIA director James Woolsey, who advised Donald Trump during his campaign and transition, used unfolding news of the deadly attack in Manchester, England, to slam the president’s predecessor, Barack Obama.

In comments that Media Matters posted online, Woolsey told Fox News anchor Shepard Smith:  

“Things are kind of coming to a head. I think the radical Islamists ― and I would call them that ― have decided to pick up the pace with the terrorist attacks, and I think we’ll probably see some more.

And we now have a president who is pretty straightforward that he is at war with them. He’s not going to soft-pedal that. He calls them evil. And we haven’t had a situation like that. We did not have in the eight years of the Obama administration a president who wanted to fight and win a war.” 

Smith cut him off. 

“President Obama fought a number of wars and certainly didn’t say that he didn’t want to win them,” he said. “It’s very early, Mr. Woolsey, with great respect, it’s very early to make this a political matter.”

Woolsey continued. 

“He didn’t say that he didn’t want to win them, but I think that’s the way he behaved,” he said. “Seems to me that’s pretty straightforward.”

Woolsey, who was CIA director under former President Bill Clinton, joined the Trump campaign in September and served on the transition team until a couple of weeks before the transition, when he resigned amid what The Washington Post called “growing tensions over Trump’s vision for intelligence agencies.”

Surge In Home Testing Sales Followed Charlie Sheen’s HIV Disclosure

Actor Charlie Sheen’s disclosure that he is HIV positive appears to have had a striking effect on sales of home HIV testing kits, a new study suggests.

Researchers found that, after Sheen announced he had HIV on Nov. 17, 2015, sales of home HIV testing kits doubled in the United States — from about 3,500 kits per week before the announcement, to 7,000 kits the week of the announcement. And this boost in sales continued for several more weeks.

“It’s hard to appreciate the magnitude of Sheen’s disclosure,” study co-author Benjamin Althouse, a research scientist with the Institute of Disease Modeling in Bellevue, Washington, said in a statement. “When we compared Sheen’s disclosure to other traditional awareness campaigns, the ‘Charlie Sheen effect’ is astonishing,” Althouse said. [10 Celebrities with Chronic Illnesses]

In fact, the researchers estimated that sales of home HIV testing kits were nearly eight times greater around the time of Sheen’s announcement, compared with sales around the time of World AIDS Day (December 1), one of the most high-profile HIV awareness campaigns.

Previously, the same researchers found that, after Sheen’s HIV disclosure, there was a large uptick in internet searches for information on HIV testing and prevention.

In the new study, the researchers wanted to know whether this increase in internet searches corresponded to an increase in people actually getting tested for HIV.

So the researchers collected data on weekly sales of OraQuick, an in-home HIV testing kit. OraQuick is one of only two home HIV testing kits currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration, and OraQuick is the only kit that allows users to get their results at home within minutes of taking the test, rather than sending their sample to a lab to be tested.

The researchers estimated that there were 8,225 more kits sold over the weeks following Sheen’s disclosure than would have been expected based on prior sales of the product.

The findings “reinforce how celebrity can impact health decision-making…and make an even stronger case that Sheen’s disclosure promoted HIV prevention,” the researchers wrote in their findings, published today (May 18) in the journal Prevention Science.

Celebrities have been known to influence rates of health screenings. In 2013, there was a rise in rates of genetic testing for breast cancer genes after actress Angelina Jolie disclosed that she was a carrier of the BRCA gene, and had undergone a double mastectomy to lower her risk of developing the disease.

The new findings also suggest that internet search data can be a good predictor of people’s actual health behaviors, given that people’s internet searches for HIV testing information corresponded with an increase in HIV testing kit sales, the researchers said.

5,000 Refugees Pulled From The Mediterranean In Just 2 Days

Over the course of about 48 hours, rescuers pulled 5,000 refugees from boats and the waters of the Mediterranean, officials reported

Italian and Libyan Coast Guard crews saved the refugees, who were sailing from Libya to Italy, between May 18-20.

The body of a man who drowned was also pulled from the water, Press TV reported.

With regions of sub-Saharan Africa rocked by economic hardship and violence, displaced people have been the continent. Many of the rescued refugees were treated for malnutrition when they reached support centers in Italy.

Officials estimated that as many as 1 million residents of Libya want to get on boats and leave because remaining there was no longer a safe option. According to the UN refugee agency, thousands of displaced people have been arrested and corralled into packed detention centers. 

Libya is crazy. They arrest us … two, three days no eat, no drink. They beat us,” Alseer Issa Ibrahim of Sudan told Reuters.

Filippo Grandi, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, said he was “shocked” by conditions at the centers in Libya and demanded that the refugees be released.

Nearly 47,000 refugees have fled to Italy this year, up more than 30 percent over last year. Another 1,300 refugees were missing or dead.

The International Organization for Immigration said the influx of refugees was attributable to warmer temps and seas. But even in better weather, the trip was perilous due to overcrowded boats.

The vast majority of those rescued last week were in international waters. They were taken to Italy for food and care. The rest were picked up in Libyan waters and returned to Africa.

WHO Suspects A Fourth Person Died Of Ebola In Congo

A fourth person is believed to have died of Ebola in an outbreak of the disease in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the World Health Organization said on Sunday.

The WHO first confirmed the discovery of the new outbreak on May 12, after a 39-year-old man who had died on his way to the hospital in a remote region of Bas-Uele province in late April was confirmed to have suffered from the deadly disease.

Since then, there have been 37 suspected cases, Eugene Kabambi, the WHO’s spokesman in Congo, told Reuters on Sunday. Four of those 37 cases have resulted in death and two have been confirmed as Ebola, another two cases, including the latest death, are considered probable, the spokesman added.

Because Ebola is highly contagious, authorities are now monitoring more than 400 people who came into contact with suspected patients. Just last week, authorities were only tracking about 200 people.

The outbreak is wreaking havoc at the national level but its overall global risk is low, the WHO said in a conference call last week. With few paved roads, the affected area in Bas-Uele is isolated and difficult to access. The 870 miles journey there from the Congolese capital, Kinshasa, takes about three days.  “We cannot underestimate the logistic and practical challenges associated with this response in a very remote and insecure part of the country,” Peter Salama, the WHO’s executive director for health emergencies said during the call.

“As of now, we do not know the full extent of the outbreak, and as we deploy teams over the next few weeks, we will begin to understand… exactly what we’re dealing with,” Salama added.

So far, teams of aid workers have accessed the area by helicopters and small aircrafts and have set up a mobile testing laboratory, the Associated Press reported.

While its location has made it difficult for aid workers to reach the area, it has also slowed the spread of the disease over a larger area, Kabambi, the WHO spokesman, told HuffPost.

Congo has suffered through seven other Ebola outbreaks since the discovery of the disease in 1976. However, none were as deadly as the outbreak in West Africa between 2013 and 2016. Frequent regional travel there helped spread the disease throughout Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, ultimately killing more than 11,000 people.

The WHO is working with Congolese authorities to explore the possibility of deploying an experimental vaccine to Bas-Uele. The vaccine was developed following the West Africa outbreak and was successfully tested in Guinea in 2015.

‘Late Show’ Packs Donald Trump’s Suitcase For His First Foreign Trip

Tic Tacs? Check. Golf balls? Check. Photograph of Russian President Vladimir Putin? Check.

On Friday, “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” imagined just what Donald Trump packed in his suitcase for his first trip overseas as president.

There’s no sign of any steaks, though. Presumably because the caterers preparing his meals in Saudi Arabia have already got that covered. 

Find out what else Trump “packed” in the clip above.

To Stay Afloat, Rural Tennessee Hospital Turns To GoFundMe

In the latest example of the plight of accessing health care in rural American, a Tennessee hospital has launched a GoFundMe campaign to keep it financially stable.

“Please help save our local area hospital!!!” the Copper Basin Medical Center’s campaign fundraising page reads. “Without the help of our community we will not be able to survive!” As of Friday, the campaign had raised $ 1,400 of its $ 100,000 goal.

“The next 45 days will be our most critical period for survival,” the page says. “We have endured needed staff reductions and are critically short on supplies.”

In addition to crowdfunding, the hospital shut down its inpatients services and laid off nurses, according to the Times Free Press. 

“People in the community are probably weary of the troubles the hospital has had, but we don’t have that negative outlook,” Dan Johnson, the CEO who was hired to turn the hospital around, told Stat. “We’re trying to get cash from any source we can.”

Located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Copper Basin Medical Center is the only critical access hospital in Polk County. This matters because increasing the distance patients have to travel to a hospital is linked to an increased risk of mortality.

It’s also just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to beleaguered rural hospitals.

Since 2010, about 100 U.S. hospitals have closed, the Associated Press reports, with rural and urban hospitals closing at similar rates. But closures in rural areas often have a more dramatic effect, because residents must travel farther to get to the closest hospital for care. Approximately a third of rural hospitals are operating at a loss, according to Stat.

“You can imagine how terrifying it is in these communities if they believe that one of their hospitals is going to close,” Fulmer, president of the John A. Hartford Foundation, which is dedicated to improving the care of older adults, told Healthline in February.

“Not only do they lose the personal relationship with the care providers, but also how will they get to where they need to go for healthcare?”

When Your Doctor Prescribes A Vibrator For Your Aging Vagina

Doctors have been adding a new tool to the arsenal of how they restore the sex lives of menopausal and post-menopausal women: the humble vibrator.

With the onset of menopause, a decrease in the production of hormones causes vaginal tissue to get thinner and drier. Vaginal muscles can also atrophy, leading to painful sex ― a problem for half of all menopausal and post-menopausal women, according to the National Institutes of Health. But the solution might be as simple as a vibrating piece of silicon. 

Vibrators that are used internally stimulate pelvic blood flow, which increases vaginal moisture and boosts sexual response, all of which makes sex (with or without a partner) better. Like any muscle, the vagina is best kept healthy with regular exercise — it’s the “use it or lose it” thing. Deterioration of this muscle becomes more common as middle-age or older women find themselves in situations where they aren’t sexually active anymore ― single, divorced, widowed or just not having regular sex with partners.

Therapeutically speaking, frequent vibrator use can prevent and ward off conditions such as painful vaginal dryness and atrophy. And yes, doctors are recommending their use ― with the caveat that since the vibrator industry isn’t regulated, certain cautionary steps should be taken. (In brief: Keep anything you put inside your privates clean, and don’t share your toys with friends.)

Dr. Barb DePree, who’s been a gynecologist for about 30 years and was recognized by the North American Menopause Society in 2013 as the practitioner of the year for her “exceptional contributions” to menopause care, has long been prescribing vibrators to her patients. She keeps one handy in the exam room when she explains to her menopausal patients why regular vibrator use will be beneficial to their health, and suggests they try it.

While a few patients might have blushed through the years, all of them have been willing to take it for a spin, DePress told HuffPost. She explains that vibrators that stimulate just the clitoris might be fun, but for intercourse with a partner to resume pain-free, there must be pelvic floor activity.

One of her patients is a 70-year-old woman who reports having sex two or three times a week now without the use of lubricants or estrogen creams. She doesn’t always achieve an orgasm, but according to her doctor, is quite pleased with what working with a vibrator for a few months accomplished.

DePree draws this analogy: “When your vision started to fail, you didn’t give up reading. You went out and bought yourself a pair of readers. Same thing is true about sex.”

A survey of more than 2,000 women aged 18 to 60 indicated that 52 percent have used a vibrator.

Another benefit of vibrator use, said DePree, is they can help address the fact that orgasm intensity weakens with age. She said she commonly hears women say, “Orgasm takes so much longer, and comes and goes so quickly it’s hardly worth it.” She said, “Those are the women who may benefit from introducing a vibrator too.”

In a published paper she authored, DePree discussed a 52-year-old post-menopausal patient who sought her help. The woman estimated that at least five years had passed since she last experienced an orgasm. The patient had multiple sclerosis and was taking a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. She had tried a vibrator in the past, without success.

“As a physician, I knew that she needed a more powerful motor for more intense stimulation. I was able to let her feel the difference and obtain the appropriate vibrator. Imagine her appreciation when she returned after achieving success,” DePree said.

Having vibrators to road test in the safety of a doctor’s office also seems to be a boon. Not every woman feels comfortable going into a sex toy shop for the purchase. Online, the choices are mind-boggling. There are hundreds to choose form, and they can range in price from under $ 10 to the super-deluxe MotorBunny for $ 900 and the even higher priced Sybian.

Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, a Yale University obstetrician and gynecologist, brought vibrators out from under the bed a few years ago when she began prescribing them to Yale Cancer Clinic’s cancer patients, who often struggle with early menopause and need to combat its side effects. The vibrators increased her patients’ blood flow, and yes, improved their sex lives.

While the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the primary professional organization for ob-gyns, doesn’t have an official policy on using vibrators to treat menopause and post-menopausal symptoms, a spokeswoman from the group told HuffPost that the organization doesn’t really take issue with it.  

And the organization does recommend masturbation to combat painful sex. “I believe you could extrapolate that external stimulus, like a vibrator, fits into those categories,” said Maggie McEvoy of the ACOG communications staff.

Vibrators not your thing? 

There are, of course, other options to help restore the vagina’s elasticity and health for those who are unable or unwilling to go the vibrator route.

Hormone replacement therapy is controversial, but still on the table. Its use to treat symptoms of menopause changed abruptly after a large clinical trial in the U.K. found that the treatment actually posed more health risks, like breast cancer, than benefits for one type of hormone therapy.

But further review of clinical trials and new evidence show that hormone therapy may be a good choice for certain women, depending on their risk factors. Low-dose vaginal preparations of estrogen — which come in cream, tablet or ring form ― can effectively treat vaginal symptoms and some urinary symptoms, while minimizing absorption into the body, says the Mayo Clinic. 

There are also vaginal lasers, a relatively new FDA-approved treatment, that work by stimulating collagen production along vaginal walls, helping to build up the tissue again. The MonaLisa Touch and similar laser processes require three treatments (spaced a month apart) and cost about $ 3,000 that likely won’t be covered by your insurance.

On the plus side, there have been 18 studies that speak to the MonaLisa Touch’s efficacy, all largely positive. One Stanford university study of 30 women found that all of them responded positively to the treatment. They showed “highly statistically significant improvement” in symptoms —including dryness, pain, itching, painful urination and painful intercourse — after the first treatment.

The North American Menopause Society gives the process a resounding “maybe.” It notes that the FDA approval process for devices is less strenuous than the one for new drugs, and these products haven’t survived the test of time ― yet. Meaning: They haven’t been around long enough to know the longer-term results.

The procedure itself doesn’t hurt, but does require an annual maintenance treatment. You also shouldn’t have laser therapy until you’ve had a Pap test and a thorough exam by your doctor to ensure that there are no other medical issues such as fibroids causing the pain.

Options are a good thing, right?

GOP Lawmaker Told To ‘Duck Off’ After Griping About Duckling Ramp

A Republican lawmaker ruffled some feathers this week when he attacked the ramps that were put in place at the U.S. Capitol Reflecting Pool to help Washington D.C.’s beloved ducklings get in and out of the water in areas with a concrete barrier. 

Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.) griped that the ramps were examples of government waste:

The office of the Architect of the U.S. Capitol released a statement this week saying four “broods” ― or families ― of ducks live in the pool, including their newly hatched ducklings. The two ramps were installed as part of a collaboration with City Wildlife, a local nonprofit. The group’s president, Anne Lewis, told The New York Times that the ducklings could die without the ramps. 

“Ducklings get into the water ― often helped there by visitors ― and then can’t get out because of the high curb at the water’s edge,” Lewis told the newspaper. “They will drown from exhaustion or die of starvation unless they have a way to get out of the water.”

It seems to have worked. The ducklings, who have become social media sensations, are already using the ramps:

It’s not clear how much work went into the ramps or what they cost, but Walker’s comments received some 2,500 replies. Here are some of the insults Walker is now ducking as a result of his tweet:

There’s A Strong Chance You Are Paying For Expensive Medical Billing Mistakes

Medical bills are the gift that keeps on giving. Having lost my husband in January, I can attest that not even death puts an end to the steady stream of bills for his care that I still get in the mail. Balance billing, services not covered, out-of-network doctors ― they all come back to haunt you in the form of bills ― including a good number from doctors you’ve never met or heard of, and who you don’t when or why even saw your loved one.

The bills? I expected them. What I didn’t expect was to learn that medical bills notoriously contain errors ― big errors. While there are no comprehensive statistics on medical-billing mistakes, Stephen Parente, a professor of health finance at the University of Minnesota who has studied the subject extensively, told HuffPost that his unpublished research put it at 30 percent to 40 percent of all bills except pharmacy bills. Groups that review bills on patients’ behalf, including Medical Billing Advocates of America and CoPatient, put the error rate much higher ― closer to 80 percent to 90 percent. 

And it has serious consequences: Medical billing errors mar the credit reports of roughly 7 million Americans, a spokeswoman for the Commonwealth Fund, a Washington-based nonprofit focused on health-care research, told HuffPost. The credit rating agency Equifax found in an audit that hospital bills totaling more than $ 10,000 contained an average error of $ 1,300.

Why are there so many errors being made? 

The answer is simple, says Pat Palmer, national expert and founder of Medical Billing Advocates of America: Insurers don’t actually care. They negotiate a lower rate with hospitals and other medical providers, so the amount of the bill and whether it contains overcharges doesn’t really matter to them. In fact, they rarely even ask to see an itemized bill ― they just work off what is known as a summary bill. Insurance companies don’t have nearly enough staff to review itemized bills in every case, Palmer said, nor would they see a need to when they have already contracted for a lower rate anyway.

Palmer adds, “There’s a reason you can’t understand your hospital bill. Nobody wants you to be able to.”

She runs her business of reviewing patient bills entirely on commission. In other words, MBAA is so confident they’ll find overcharges, their commission is 25 percent of whatever money they recover for the client. 

“Almost every hospital bill has some kind of error,” said Palmer, who has been in business for about 25 years and now operates in 30 states. 

What do the errors look like?

Inpatient hospital stays are a big-ticket item, and frequently Palmer spots two or three charges for the same item. For example, you pay about $ 10,000 a day for a bed in the ICU, which includes the higher-level care of specially trained nurses, life-saving equipment and supplies. Yet you might get billed $ 2,000 a day for ventilator equipment on top of that. The ventilators are part of the high-priced daily ICU bed and shouldn’t be billed for separately, Palmer said.

The MBAA website offers more examples: You arrive at the emergency room on Tuesday at 10 p.m. and the doctor writes an order to admit you as inpatient to the ICU at 11:35 p.m. ― but the room isn’t ready, and you don’t move into it until 2 a.m. Wednesday. The hospital charges you $ 3,000 for the ICU on Tuesday. Their reason for the full-day charge on Tuesday: The doctor wrote the order before midnight. But if the patient never saw the inside of the ICU until Wednesday, the hospital shouldn’t be able to charge for it.

Blow the whistle, the MBAA urges. A patient must physically occupy a room/unit to incur a daily room charge. A written order to admit does not meet the definition of room occupancy. 

By not seeing an itemized bill, you might overlook some gems like these that Palmer discovered for clients: a mucous recovery system billed at $ 11.75 turned out to be a box of tissues, and a comfort support device for $ 120 was actually a teddy bear for the patient to clutch to her chest post-surgery in case she coughed.

The military’s $ 640 toilet seat, it seems, has nothing on some hospitals.

The out-of-network game

While technically not over-billing, getting zapped by an out-of-network provider who won’t settle for what your insurance wants to pay leads to a different kind of pain. 

In my own case, I received a bill for $ 1,600 for a plastic surgeon called by the nursing home to examine my husband for bedsores that had developed and festered during his stay there. The plastic surgeon did not personally see my husband, but sent over his nurse practitioner, who changed the dressing on my husband’s wounds in a visit that was completed in less than 10 minutes.

It turns out the doctor the nursing home called was out of network and tried to balance-bill me. For the uninitiated, a balance bill is when the doctor doesn’t accept what your insurance paid him and wants you to pay him more money. 

Lots of people get nailed by doctors who only appear to be on staff at the hospital. They aren’t, and instead work for businesses that arrange staffing for the hospital. So in plain English, you go to a hospital that is in your insurance network expecting what happens to you there to be covered, and it’s not.

These out-of-network doctors who won’t take your insurance lurk in the strangest of places in your in-network hospital: They are the hospitalists who see patients all day long, and many are the anesthesiologists who work in the operating room. Has anyone who is strapped to a gurney and being wheeled into surgery ever stopped to ask the doctor who is anesthetizing them whether he takes Blue Cross? Of course not. And can you imagine telling the ER doctor with the paddles to please back away from the patient having heart failure unless he’s in-network?

This out-sourcing of talent has gotten to be such a problem that 12 states have banned the practice. For example, if you are in New York, every provider who treats you in an in-network hospital must accept the in-network negotiated rate and may not send you a bill. 

Hospitals aren’t alone in overcharging

Inaccurate charges appear on doctors’ office visits as well. There are five levels of office visits, as far as billing is concerned. A level 1 visit is the simplest and doesn’t even require that the doctor be in the room; a nurse practitioner or nurse may deliver the care, and it can be something as minor as getting a monthly vitamin B12 or allergy shot. A level 5 visit is supposed to be for more complicated conditions and generally involve some kind of treatment. But, Palmer said, she’s seen it applied to an office visit for diaper rash where the nurse’s application of ointment was billed as a “treatment.” 

ProPublica took a close look at how doctors billed for office visits, which account for about $ 12 billion in Medicare spending every year. They found that typically, doctors only charge for one or two of these high-level visits per year for each patient. But nationwide, about 1,800 doctors always bill at the highest level possible for routine office visits.

Overcharges sometimes are caused by human error, such as a wrong billing code being entered. Those are the types of mistakes that can be easy to spot. They include services that weren’t performed, tests that were canceled, and duplicate charges. 

Why aren’t insurers and the regulatory agencies screaming bloody murder about billing errors?

Isn’t it fair to ask where our insurance company or the government are in all this? If you are in an employer-sponsored plan and work for a large company, your employer may have some pull

Why, pray tell, should I have to pay someone to sort through my husband’s hospital bills because my private insurer and Medicare don’t demand that the hospital provide them with an itemized bill? How can I tell if I’m being overcharged without billing transparency? 

For what it’s worth, hospitals say detailed bills are simply too complicated for patients and that they provide the information required by insurers.

But most insurance companies don’t cover cosmetic procedures, and thus, patients want to know how much a procedure will cost them. If plastic surgeons and providers of Lasik can give you a clear price up front, why can’t others in medicine?

Why does this all matter?

In other industries, lawmakers have stepped up and helped end unscrupulous practices. The 1968 Truth in Lending Act gave us clearer terms in writing loans and offering consumer credit. After the housing crisis, the 2009 Mortgage Disclosure Improvement Act insisted that lenders provide clear information to home buyers so no one would get blindsided again with adjustable rates or mortgages they would never be able to afford. So, why not help fix the issues in health care billing?

The problem is, insurance companies have no financial incentive to hunt down mistakes on your behalf. They negotiated their rates with hospitals and doctors long before you got sick, and the dollar amount on the bill they receive might as well be a toddler’s drawing. But it’s you ― the patient ― who gets zinged in the form of paying out of pocket for high deductibles and co-pays.

America’s Health Insurance Plans, the umbrella lobbying group for health insurers, told HuffPost in an email that health plans provide explanation-of-benefits statements, customer service lines and directories of in-network providers “hoping to educate and engage consumers on their plan benefits to avoid mistakes or issues such as balance billing.”

Beyond that, consumers are apparently on their own.

Stephen Colbert Brings Down The House With A Direct Message To Donald Trump

What seemed like a quick throwaway line about President Donald Trump got a big reaction when Stephen Colbert delivered it to his “Late Show” audience on Monday night.

Colbert was speaking about the chaos in the White House press office, and Trump toying aloud with the idea of ditching daily briefings and doing his own press conferences every couple of weeks. 

“Oh sir! Please don’t do your own press conferences,” Colbert sarcastically begged. “They’re always such fountains of eloquence and bastions of dignity. What would we make jokes about the next day?”

But it was a line delivered a little later in the monologue that caused Colbert’s studio audience to erupt in laughter.

He wondered aloud if Trump was watching ― and he could well be, given the president’s criticism of Colbert this month. Then the host delivered a message directly to the president. 

Check it out above.

Experts Press Feds To Eradicate Lead Poisoning By 2021

In just five years, the U.S. could end the problem of lead poisoning, a group of health experts argues ― if federal overseers are given more ammunition to attack the problem despite an administration that wants to gut regulations.

A coalition of scientists, doctors and children’s health advocates published an opinion piece in the Journal of the American Medical Association Pediatrics on Monday that calls on the government to stamp out lead poisoning in American children by 2021 ― or ensure no child has a blood lead level greater than 5 micrograms per deciliter ― and eliminate lead exposure altogether by 2030.

Project TENDR (Targeting Environmental Neurodevelopmental Risks) advocates for reducing exposure levels to chemicals and pollutants that contribute to neurodevelopmental problems, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Lead contamination of the drinking water in Flint, Michigan, which caused a rise in the number of the city’s children who had lead poisoning, drew public attention to the problem in 2014. But lead exposure affects communities across the country. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which enforces lead restrictions, estimates 6.5 million to 10 million homes are connected to lead service lines.

Nearly 3,000 areas in the U.S. have higher lead poisoning rates than Flint, according to a Reuters investigation. Exposure to peeling paint in older homes is the biggest source of lead poisoning, disproportionately affecting low-income families.

Forty years ago, 88 percent of young children in the U.S. had elevated levels of lead in their blood. Today, just 2.5 percent of kids ages 1 to 5 have lead levels above the now-lower threshold set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2012. (The threshold had been 10 micrograms.) But lead is a neurotoxin that isn’t safe in any quantity. It’s particularly toxic for young children, increasing their risk of brain and nervous system damage.

“Lead is one of those things that people tend to get lulled into a sense that ‘we’ve already dealt with the issue, we took it out of gasoline and regulated the amount in paint,’” said David Bellinger, lead author of Monday’s article and an environmental health professor at Harvard University.

“It took something like Flint for people to realize that there’s just enormous reservoirs of lead out there in the environment … and that all it takes is some human error or some engineering failure and the problem resurfaces,” Bellinger said.

Bellinger said the drastic reduction in lead exposure since the late 1970s shows how effective regulations have been, but he said that the EPA and other federal agencies need to strengthen their lead restrictions ― which cover drinking water, paint, air quality, soil, dust and other sources ― to keep up with current research.

Project TENDR also calls for dedicated funding for more programs that actively eliminate sources of lead. They say the government needs to put a complete ban on the use of lead in products including aviation fuel, cosmetics, wheel weights, industrial paints, batteries and lubricants.

Its call for stronger lead rules could be a tall order under the current administration. President Donald Trump has signed executive orders to slash regulations and proposed gutting the EPA’s budget, including its lead paint programs.

To carry out the president’s directions, the EPA is accepting public comments through Monday on regulations it could repeal.

In East Chicago, Indiana, which is undergoing a lead crisis at a public housing complex built on the site of a former lead refinery, several organizations wrote a letter published by the Northwest Indiana Times that urged the agency to strengthen, not reduce, its lead regulations.  

Repealing lead regulations or defunding prevention programs would “perpetuate a completely preventable public health crisis,” the groups wrote on behalf of residents at the East Chicago complex, designated an EPA Superfund cleanup site.

The EPA has been looking at updating its lead rules for a couple of years, including possibly requiring cities to replace all lead pipes, one of the goals of Project TENDR. But the agency acknowledges it would be an enormously difficult and expensive undertaking ― Flint received tens of millions of dollars from the EPA and the state of Michigan to replace its lead service lines, and nationwide pipe replacement would cost more than $ 16 billion.

“It’s going to make the work harder to fight back against the rising tide,” Bellinger said of Trump’s anti-regulation crusade. “So we just have to work with our representatives, our senators, and make sure that these issues don’t get pushed aside and that at least Congress is trying to keep a focus on them.”

Callista Gingrich Reportedly To Become Ambassador To The Vatican

Children’s book author Callista Gingrich, the wife of Newt Gingrich and a former congressional aide, is reportedly going to be named ambassador to the Vatican

Gingrich, a lifelong Catholic, could be appointed to the post prior to President Donald Trump’s scheduled May 24 meeting with Pope Francis, CNN reported. The administration is waiting for approval from the Office of Government Ethics before making a formal announcement.

Newt Gingrich did not confirm nor deny the report to The New York Times on Sunday, but said he and his wife had to “be very cautious” until an announcement was made. 

Earlier this year, the former speaker of the house told CNN that when rumors of the possible nomination first surfaced, he decided not to move to Rome but would continue to live in Virginia and “clock in an amazing number of miles.”

Callista Gingrich has not commented on the reports. 

Newt Gingrich was born a Southern Baptist and converted to Catholicism in 2009. He spoke about his journey to the faith and his wife’s role in guiding him there in a 2011 editorial in the National Catholic Register. 

The two married in 2000, less than a year after Newt divorced his second wife, Marianne, who later told the Washington Post that her then-husband had asked for an open marriage. She refused. 

It was later revealed that Newt Gingrich and Callista Bisek, then a congressional aide, had engaged in a six-year affair. During part of that time, Gingrich was leading impeachment proceedings against President Bill Clinton over his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

The couple owns a production company that makes documentary films, including one about Pope John Paul II called “Nine Days That Changed The World.” It has been well-received among Catholics

WHO Confirms Second Ebola Case In Congo

The World Health Organization on Sunday confirmed a second case of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo, following a recent outbreak of over a dozen other suspected cases this week.

There are 19 suspected and confirmed cases in the outbreak so far, including three people who have died, WHO’s Congo spokesman Eugene Kabambi told Reuters

WHO declared the outbreak on Friday, when the organization confirmed a first case of the disease in Congo’s Bas-Uele province, a remote area in the country’s north bordering the Central African Republic.

The first case was a 45-year-old man who died on April 22 on his way to the hospital, the organization explained on Saturday. A person who took care of the man, as well as the driver who transported him to the hospital, both subsequently became ill and passed away. It is unclear whether the driver or the care giver was the case confirmed on Sunday. 

Ebola spreads through direct contact with bodily fluids of infected people or with contaminated surfaces and materials. Officials and health workers are currently trying to locate 125 people who may be at risk of infection. 

According to the WHO, news about the Congo outbreak was slow to emerge because of the limited transport and communication networks in the region. It takes about three days to reach the area from the capital Kinshasa. 

Karambi told HuffPost on Friday that the remoteness of the location poses logistical challenges, it also may help contain the disease. “On the one hand, it’s lucky because the illness probably can’t spread on a wide scale. But on the other hand, it’s far from medical access,” Karambi told HuffPost on Friday. 

The first Ebola outbreaks took place in 1976, when two simultaneous outbreaks were discovered in isolated areas of Congo and South Sudan. Since then, Congo has seen seven other outbreaks. The most recent one started on Aug. 24, 2014 in Equateur province. By the end of the outbreak in November that year, dozens of people had died. 

At the time, a different and far more complex outbreak was raging in West Africa. More than 11,000 people died of Ebola between 2013 and 2016, most of them in Guinea, Sierra Leona and Liberia. The West Africa outbreak was the deadliest outbreak of Ebola since its discovery.

Alec Baldwin’s Trump Gets Skewered Again By ‘Lester Holt’ On ‘SNL’

For those who wanted to re-savor NBC’s Lester Holt’s gotcha’ interview with Donald Trump, Alec Baldwin provided a second oh-so-delicious chance in the cold open on “Saturday Night Live.” Only this time it was even more distilled essence of Trump.

“Thank you for having me here, jazz man,” Baldwin’s Trump tell’s Michael Che’s Lester Holt (also called Tupac, O.J. and Kenan by the “president”). “Well, first  all I can just say is, I won the election fair and square, everyone knows that!”

Che begins by grilling “Trump” on firing FBI Director James Comey.

“I fired him because of Russia,” Baldwin admits. “I thought, ‘He’s investigating Russia. I don’t like that. I should fire him.’”

“You’re admitting that? But that’s obstruction of justice,” Che responds, asking the audience gleefully: “Did I get him? Is this all over?”

Then he hears from a manager through his earpiece: ”No I didn’t?” he asks. “Nothing matters? Absolutely nothing matters anymore?” 

After a two-scoop ice cream treat from bubbly ice-cream man Paul Ryan (”beat it, nerd,” Baldwin tells him), Trump denies that he is anything like Richard Nixon. But differences fade when he mimics Nixon’s two-handed victory gesture as Trump emphasizes his two scoops of ice cream.

Trump pats himself on the back for “letting Kellyanne out of the crypt” last week and concedes he might be a “serial tape-ist.” He also has an interesting definition for “priming the pump” before Melania comes to bed — to which Holt responds: “Ew.”

But getting back to reality TV, Holt asks Trump to promise he won’t pick someone “crazy like Judge Judy” to replace Comey.

Baldwin answers: “I can promise you this right now, whoever I chose is going to be so bonkers you’re going to wish like hell it was Judge Judy.”

“Your presidency is like the craziest show on TV,” Che tells him.

“The show is going to run for eight years — even though it should have been canceled months ago,” Baldwin concedes. “We have plenty of fun plot twists coming up. A lot of your favorite characters will be coming back … Kim Jong un, Carter Page … I don’t want to give away too much, but in an upcoming episode we will find out that Kellyanne has been dead this whole time.”

“Holt wraps up: “On behalf of everyone, I just want to say I can’t believe you’re president.”

10 Toxic People You Should Avoid Like The Plague

Toxic people defy logic. Some are blissfully unaware of the negative impact that they have on those around them, and others seem to derive satisfaction from creating chaos and pushing other people’s buttons.

As important as it is to learn how to deal with different kinds of people, truly toxic people will never be worth your time and energy—and they take a lot of each. Toxic people create unnecessary complexity, strife, and, worst of all, stress.

“People inspire you, or they drain you—pick them wisely.” – Hans F. Hansen

Recent research from Friedrich Schiller University in Germany shows just how serious toxic people are. They found that exposure to stimuli that cause strong negative emotions—the same kind of exposure you get when dealing with toxic people—caused subjects’ brains to have a massive stress response. Whether it’s negativity, cruelty, the victim syndrome, or just plain craziness, toxic people drive your brain into a stressed-out state that should be avoided at all costs.

Stress can have a lasting, negative impact on the brain. Exposure to even a few days of stress compromises the effectiveness of neurons in the hippocampus, an important brain area responsible for reasoning and memory. Weeks of stress cause reversible damage to brain cells, and months of stress can permanently destroy them. Toxic people don’t just make you miserable—they’re really hard on your brain.

The ability to manage your emotions and remain calm under pressure has a direct link to your performance. TalentSmart has conducted research with more than a million people, and we’ve found that 90% of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions in times of stress in order to remain calm and in control. One of their greatest gifts is the ability to identify toxic people and keep them at bay.

It’s often said that you’re the product of the five people you spend the most time with. If you allow even one of those five people to be toxic, you’ll soon find out how capable he or she is of holding you back.

Toxic people drive you crazy because their behavior is so irrational. Make no mistake about it—their behavior truly goes against reason…

You can’t hope to distance yourself from toxic people until you first know who they are. The trick is to separate those who are annoying or simply difficult from those who are truly toxic. What follows are ten types of toxic drainers that you should stay away from at all costs so that you don’t become one yourself.

1. The Gossip

“Great minds discuss ideas, average ones discuss events, and small minds discuss people.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Gossipers derive pleasure from other people’s misfortunes. It might be fun to peer into somebody else’s personal or professional faux pas at first, but over time, it gets tiring, makes you feel gross, and hurts other people. There are too many positives out there and too much to learn from interesting people to waste your time talking about the misfortune of others.

2. The Temperamental

Some people have absolutely no control over their emotions. They will lash out at you and project their feelings onto you, all the while thinking that you’re the one causing their malaise. Temperamental people are tough to dump from your life because their lack of control over their emotions makes you feel bad for them. When push comes to shove though, temperamental people will use you as their emotional toilet and should be avoided at all costs.

3. The Victim

Victims are tough to identify because you initially empathize with their problems. But as time passes, you begin to realize that their “time of need” is all the time. Victims actively push away any personal responsibility by making every speed bump they encounter into an uncrossable mountain. They don’t see tough times as opportunities to learn and grow from; instead, they see them as an out. There’s an old saying: “Pain is inevitable but suffering is optional.” It perfectly captures the toxicity of the victim, who chooses to suffer every time.

4. The Self-Absorbed

Self-absorbed people bring you down through the impassionate distance they maintain from other people. You can usually tell when you’re hanging around self-absorbed people because you start to feel completely alone. This happens because as far as they’re concerned, there’s no point in having a real connection between them and anyone else. You’re merely a tool used to build their self-esteem.

5. The Envious

To envious people, the grass is always greener somewhere else. Even when something great happens to envious people, they don’t derive any satisfaction from it. This is because they measure their fortune against the world’s when they should be deriving their satisfaction from within. And let’s face it, there’s always someone out there who’s doing better if you look hard enough. Spending too much time around envious people is dangerous because they teach you to trivialize your own accomplishments.

6. The Manipulator

Manipulators suck time and energy out of your life under the façade of friendship. They can be tricky to deal with because they treat you like a friend. They know what you like, what makes you happy, and what you think is funny, but the difference is that they use this information as part of a hidden agenda. Manipulators always want something from you, and if you look back on your relationships with them, it’s all take, take, take, with little or no giving. They’ll do anything to win you over just so they can work you over.

Maintaining an emotional distance requires awareness. You can’t stop someone from pushing your buttons if you don’t recognize when it’s happening.

7. The Dementor

In J. K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” series, Dementors are evil creatures that suck people’s souls out of their bodies, leaving them merely as shells of humans. Whenever a Dementor enters the room, it goes dark, people get cold, and they begin to recall their worst memories. Rowling said that she developed the concept for Dementors based on highly negative people—the kind of people who have the ability to walk into a room and instantly suck the life out of it.

Dementors suck the life out of the room by imposing their negativity and pessimism upon everyone they encounter. Their viewpoints are always glass half empty, and they can inject fear and concern into even the most benign situations. A Notre Dame University study found that students assigned to roommates who thought negatively were far more likely to develop negative thinking and even depression themselves.

8. The Twisted

There are certain toxic people who have bad intentions, deriving deep satisfaction from the pain and misery of others. They are either out to hurt you, to make you feel bad, or to get something from you; otherwise, they have no interest in you. The only good thing about this type is that you can spot their intentions quickly, which makes it that much faster to get them out of your life.

9. The Judgmental

Judgmental people are quick to tell you exactly what is and isn’t cool. They have a way of taking the thing you’re most passionate about and making you feel terrible about it. Instead of appreciating and learning from people who are different from them, judgmental people look down on others. Judgmental people stifle your desire to be a passionate, expressive person, so you’re best off cutting them out and being yourself.

10. The Arrogant

Arrogant people are a waste of your time because they see everything you do as a personal challenge. Arrogance is false confidence, and it always masks major insecurities. A University of Akron study found that arrogance is correlated with a slew of problems in the workplace. Arrogant people tend to be lower performers, more disagreeable, and have more cognitive problems than the average person.

How to Protect Yourself Once You Spot ‘Em

Toxic people drive you crazy because their behavior is so irrational. Make no mistake about it—their behavior truly goes against reason, so why do you allow yourself to respond to them emotionally and get sucked into the mix?

The more irrational and off-base someone is, the easier it should be for you to remove yourself from their traps. Quit trying to beat them at their own game. Distance yourself from them emotionally, and approach your interactions with them like they’re a science project (or you’re their shrink if you prefer that analogy). You don’t need to respond to the emotional chaos—only the facts.

Maintaining an emotional distance requires awareness. You can’t stop someone from pushing your buttons if you don’t recognize when it’s happening. Sometimes you’ll find yourself in situations where you’ll need to regroup and choose the best way forward. This is fine, and you shouldn’t be afraid to buy yourself some time to do so.

Most people feel as though because they work or live with someone, they have no way to control the chaos. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Once you’ve identified a toxic person, you’ll begin to find their behavior more predictable and easier to understand. This will equip you to think rationally about when and where you have to put up with them and when and where you don’t. You can establish boundaries, but you’ll have to do so consciously and proactively. If you let things happen naturally, you’re bound to find yourself constantly embroiled in difficult conversations. If you set boundaries and decide when and where you’ll engage a difficult person, you can control much of the chaos. The only trick is to stick to your guns and keep boundaries in place when the person tries to cross them, which they will.

Have you bumped into any of these types of toxic people? Please share your thoughts in the comments section, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

Stephen Colbert Explains Why Trump’s Firing Of Comey Isn’t Really Like ‘The Godfather’

President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey has been likened to a classic scene from “The Godfather.”

Following Comey’s dismissal on Tuesday, one senior intelligence official told NBC News that the “thuggish” and “humiliating” way in which his termination was carried out was like a “horse head in the bed.”

It was “designed to send a message,” the official added.

But on Friday’s “Late Show,” host Stephen Colbert explained why the comparison wasn’t actually that accurate ― and it’s all to do with one of Don Corleone’s favorite personality traits; respect.

Find out the reason in the clip above.

After Losing A Combined 578 Pounds, This Couple Is Getting Married

Now here’s a love story that will get your heart pumping. 

Ronnie Brower and Andrea Masella lost a combined 578 pounds over the last four years. And on Saturday, they’ll be tying the knot in Syracuse, New York.

The pair first met at Mission Fitness gym in Syracuse two years ago while they were both on major weight loss journeys. 

“I was just really inspired by him and I thought he was super cute,” Masella told the Associated Press. “We started talking at the gym and I hate to sound cliche, but it was love at first sight.”

In 2013, doctors told Brower ― then 675 pounds― that he could die if he did not make immediate changes to his lifestyle. He gave up drugs and alcohol, began working out, adopted a low-carb diet and has since lost more than 450 pounds. 

“I was depressed, addicted to pills and alcohol, eating 10 double cheeseburgers or two large pizzas at a time,” Brower told AP. “My turning point was, my doctor told me if I kept on like this I’d be dead before I was 30. I was 28.”

In 2014, Masella embarked on her own weight loss journey after hitting 250 pounds. The 5-foot-4 hairdresser has since lost 120. 

“Both of us came from a place where food was our coping mechanism,” Masella told Syracuse.com. “We’ve gone through counseling and have figured out why we ate that way.”

On their first date, the couple played ping pong and basketball at the gym. They hit it off right away. 

“I instantly knew something was there,” Brower told Syracuse.com 

For the role of best man, Brower chose his personal trainer Nick Murphy, who had told him years ago that he would someday find a woman who shared his interests in health and fitness. Murphy was right. 

“This is a story you could make a movie about,” Murphy said. “It’s a match made in heaven.”

For more on their love story, watch the video above.

Why Your Doctor Should Ask About Your Sexual Orientation

No visit to a new doctor would be complete without a litany of forms and questions: Have you ever been a smoker? Are you currently pregnant? Have you been pregnant within the last 12 months? Do you have any parents or siblings who died of cancer?

But there are two important questions that don’t make every doctor’s list: With what gender do you identify? And: What is your sexual orientation?

Doctors are supposed to collect information on gender identity and sexual orientation, both at regular appointments and in emergency room settings, per guidelines from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Institute of Medicine. But recently published research in JAMA: The Journal of the American Medical Association found that nearly 80 percent of emergency room doctors and nurses don’t ask for that information, because they assume patients would be uncomfortable disclosing personal information during an ER visit.

That doesn’t match up with patient perspectives: A survey of patients as part of the same study found that only 10 percent would balk at sharing their identity and orientation.

“Before training many [providers] are reluctant to ask questions about sexual orientation or gender identity, fearing that they will be intrusive ― or fearing that they will alienate their cisgender, heterosexual patients,” said Liz Margolies, founder and executive director of the National LGBT Cancer Network, who trains doctors in cultural competency and was not involved in the study. “They don’t understand that not asking is making a heterosexual assumption and making the [non-heterosexual] patient feel less welcome.”

Sexual orientation and gender identity are not controversial issues, said Adil Haider, one of the study’s co-authors and the Kessler Director of the Center for Surgery and Public Health at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Rather, Haider said, they are an important part of a person’s identity ― “and many people feel like they need to be able to communicate that [information] to feel comfortable with their doctor.”

LGBTQ patients often face difficulties in accessing health services, such as inequality in health insurance and discrimination in health care settings ― and the first step to fixing these issues is knowing where they’re happening. Queer patients are also more likely to experience certain physical and mental health issues, and health care providers can better tailor their treatment of such patients if they have all the relevant information. (It’s important to note, however, that despite recommendations that providers ask patients about their sexual orientation and gender identity, patients are under no obligation to answer those questions if they don’t want to.)

Until a few years ago, Haider’s research focused on racial and socioeconomic disparities in surgical outcomes after traumatic injury. But a conversation with a friend who identifies as gay made Haider realize there were huge disparities in health care based on sexual orientation and gender identity that were going overlooked, he said.

“I began to look and realized we knew almost nothing about LGBT disparities, especially in the ER setting,” Haider said, “because we never collect that information.”

If you are counted, you are visible

The survey was conducted among 1,500 patients who identified as gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, straight or “other,” and among more than 400 ER doctors and nurses. Many patients who identify as lesbian or gay said the routine collection of sexual orientation data would make them feel visible.

“If you are counted, if you are visible, it is sort of another form of recognition at an institutional level,” said one woman who identified as queer, according to the authors’ paper.

“The more those questions become standard, the less people will be surprised by them,” said another man who identified as gay.

The majority of health care providers, on the other hand, thought that asking patients for that kind of information might offend them — which indicates more training and understanding may be necessary.

“If it affected [the patient’s] medical treatment or if it was related to the reason they came to the [emergency room], then I think that was necessary to ask,” one ER nurse told the researchers.

The data also showed that patients and providers would rather handle questions about sexual orientation and gender identity via a written or electronic form, instead of doing it in a verbal conversation.

Queer patients often feel disrespected at hospitals

The bottom line is that not asking and not knowing this information can affect a patient’s care in a negative way ― and the problem can be avoided fairly easily.

“Even if physicians and nurses do a great job taking care of somebody, if we don’t respect who they are as a person, all the work we’ve done medically could be for naught,” Haider said. “And in an emergency situation, it often becomes important to know who’s the [patient’s] next of kin.”

Haider mentioned a child who’d been treated at his hospital and who had two mothers. One of the women brought the child to the hospital, but a staff member kept asking where the husband or father was.

“Eventually, when the woman’s wife showed up, they felt very judged,” he said.

Health care providers in all settings need to know that they can ask these questions respectfully ― for example, by prefacing them with statements like, “I am now going to ask you some personal questions that I ask of all my patients.” Collecting this information will result in better health outcomes for the patients, Margolies told HuffPost in an email.

“People who can bring their whole selves into treatment are more likely to comply with follow up treatment, more likely to return to the doctor for minor health problems (before they become more serious) and will be honest about their health concerns,” Margolies said ― which in turn allows the provider to make the most accurate health assessment.

And that’s true no matter how you describe your sexual orientation or gender identity.

Stephen Colbert Wants To Thank Donald Trump With A ‘Special’ Gift

President Donald Trump insisted on Twitter that everyone will be “thanking” him for firing FBI director James Comey this week. 

That got CBS “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert to think of a way to express his own gratitude to the president. 

“How should we thank him? We should get him something special,” Colbert suggested. “How about a special prosecutor?”

Colbert also noted all the comparisons being made in the media between Trump and the Watergate scandal of former President Richard Nixon, and broke out his impression of the 37th president:

Then once more, for good measure:

Life Expectancy In One U.S. County Is Less Than Sudan’s

People living in Summit County, Colorado, in 2014 had a life expectancy 20 years longer than those about 420 miles away in Oglala Lakota County, South Dakota ― the widest gap in the U.S., according to a study from the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.

The 66.8-year average life span for those living in Oglala Lakota County, home to the Pine Ridge Native American reservation, was also less than that of countries such as India (66.9), Sudan (67.2) and Iraq (67.7), the report found.

Residents of Summit County, home to the world-renowned Breckenridge Ski Resort, had life expectancies of 86.8 years, according to the study published Monday by JAMA Internal Medicine.

At its core, the study showed the “massive inequality” among people in the United States, study co-author Ali Mokdad said. “The gap between counties with the highest and lowest life expectancies is widening and worsening.”

Oglala Lakota County has consistently had the lowest U.S. life expectancy since the institute’s study began in 1980, Laura A. Dwyer-Lindgren, the report’s lead author, said. Then known as Shannon County, its residents on average at that time lived 18.2 years less than those in Billings County, North Dakota, which ranked first.

The current national life expectancy is 78.8 years, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The Pine Ridge reservation is the nation’s eighth largest, encompassing 3,500 square miles, and one of the poorest. Its rate of people living below the U.S. poverty level is 44.2 percent, compared with South Dakota’s overall rate of 13.7 percent, according to Census Bureau figures.

Summit County has a poverty rate of 13.7 percent, much closer to the Colorado’s average of 11.5 percent.

In Pine Ridge, more than 80 percent of the residents are unemployed and more than one-third of the homes lack running water or electricity. Alcoholism is a systemic problem and diets are so poor that half the population over 40 years old is diabetic.

Other counties found by the study to have low life expectancies were in central Appalachia and the Mississippi Delta. 

“Looking at life expectancy on a national level masks the massive differences that exist at the local level, especially in a country as diverse as the United States,” Dwyer-Lindgren said.

“Risk factors like obesity, lack of exercise, high blood pressure and smoking explain a large portion of the variation in lifespans, but so do socioeconomic factors like race, education and income.”

Of the 10 counties where life expectancy dropped the most between 1980 and 2014, eight were in Kentucky; the other two were in Oklahoma and Alabama. The report includes an interactive map of death rates county by county.

Mokdad said other countries ― such as Australia ― surpass the United States in delivering preventive care and trying to curb such harmful behaviors as smoking.

“Smoking, physical inactivity, obesity, high blood pressure ― these are preventable risk factors,” he said.

As the debate continues in Washington over restructuring our health care system, Mokdad said the U.S. needs to “regroup” because our current system “isn’t working.”

The University of Washington study did find some good news. Every U.S. county saw a drop in the risk of dying before age 5, and the gap between the counties with the highest and lowest levels of under-5 mortality narrowed since 1980. The study attributed these results to health programs and services focused on infants and children.

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray Drops Re-Election Bid Amid Sex Abuse Accusations

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, who has been accused by four men of sexually abusing them as teenagers, dropped his bid for re-election on Tuesday, saying that the scandal would be a distraction from more important issues.

In a news conference at a waterfront park near his childhood home, an emotional Murray denied the claims against him, which he has called politically motivated, according to a video posted on the mayor’s Facebook page.

Murray, a Democrat and the city’s first openly gay mayor, also suggested that the accusations were rooted in stereotypes of gay men.

“The mayor’s race must be focused on… issues, not on a scandal, which it would be focused on if I were to remain in this race,” Murray, who became mayor in 2014, said in announcing his withdrawal from the race.

As a senator in the Washington state legislature, Murray championed gay rights and legalizing same-sex marriage. During his term as mayor, Seattle sued President Donald Trump over his executive order cracking down on sanctuary cities that limit their cooperation with federal immigration agents.

A primary election for mayor will take place Aug. 1 and the two candidates with the most votes will face off in the Nov. 7 general election.

In April, a 46-year-old man sued Murray, claiming that the mayor paid him for sex when he was a homeless, drug-addicted teenager in the 1980s, according to the lawsuit.

The Seattle Times newspaper said that in 2008 two other men had accused Murray of abusing them when they were teenagers in the 1980s. Murray has denied those claims, which did not become public until last month.

A fourth accuser in a sworn court declaration made similar allegations against Murray, according to the Seattle Times.

Murray consistently denied the claims, calling the accusations politically motivated, but also garnered criticism for questioning the trustworthiness of the accusers, which the Seattle Times said had criminal records.

An attorney for the first accuser, Lincoln Beauregard, said on Twitter that his client saw the mayor’s withdrawal from the race as “one step towards justice.”

Ex-Mortician’s Lawsuit Says Job Caused ‘Mental Anguish’

A Texas man suffered “mental anguish” while working at a Fort Worth mortuary, a new lawsuit charges.

Jeremy Hoes, of Saginaw, is suing his former employer, Accu Care Mortuary Service Inc., for financial, physical and emotional damages and seeking monetary relief between $ 100,000 and $ 1 million. The legal action was first reported by WFAA-TV in Dallas.

“I think it’s very striking,” attorney Robert E. Goodman Jr. told HuffPost of his client’s claims. “And I think it’s very much the reality of the way this mortuary operates, based on conversations with my client.”

According to a copy of the four-page lawsuit, which Goodman filed Monday in Tarrant County District Court, Hoes began working for Accu Care in October 2013. The documents do not detail what duties Hoes performed, but his attorney said he was working as a mortician.

The lawsuit alleges that less than a month into his employment, Hoes was exposed to hazardous vapors in the body of a man who had killed himself by ingesting paint fumes. Hoes lacked “adequate personal protective equipment” while working on the body and afterward began to suffer from “chronic asthma,” according to the court filing.

Roughly three years later, in December 2016, the lawsuit alleges that Hoes was again placed in a difficult position: He had to perform mortuary services on the bodies of “a woman and a three-month-old son who had been decapitated,” the documents state.

After completing that particular job, Hoes told his employer that he was experiencing a “post-traumatic stress reaction,” according to the lawsuit. The mortuary allegedly instructed Hoes to file a workers’ compensation claim and agreed to cover any remaining medical expenses. The lawsuit says Hoes filed the claim, but was never reimbursed by his employer.

When Hoes complained about the outstanding medical expenses, the lawsuit says he was fired.

An Accu Care office manager referred calls for comment to the company’s lawyer, Joanna Solinas. A secretary at Solinas’ office told HuffPost she was unavailable for comment on Tuesday.

Donald Trump’s Weird Way Of Pinning A Tweet Is Freaking People Out

Twitter maverick President Donald Trump strikes again.

On Monday afternoon, Trump broke with Twitter norms to pin a tweet in a highly unusual way ― by pasting it into his account’s header image.

The president superimposed a post of Congressional Republicans celebrating the House’s passing of a measure to repeal and replace Obamacare in the Oval Office Thursday:

“Director Clapper reiterated what everybody, including the fake media already knows ― there is ‘no evidence’ of collusion w/ Russia and Trump,” said his caption that’s pasted over the snap.

The tweet was apparently in reference to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s testimony at a Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing.

Trump’s header image has since been switched out for a photograph of him celebrating the passing of the healthcare measure alongside Congressional Republicans in the White House’s Rose Garden.

But based on fellow Twitter users’ reaction to the post, the unusual way in which he pinned his tweet is one for the ages:

This Comic Captures What It’s Like To Grow Up Mixed Race In America

Growing up half Japanese and half-Jamaican in Hawaii, 19-year-old Kiana Khansmith quietly struggled with misconceptions about being mixed race.

“A lot of people seemed to know who I was more than I did,” the animation student at the California College of the Arts told HuffPost. “They would tell me what to be or how I should act based on my heritage.”

When a professor in a race and comics course told the class to create a series based off personal experience, Khansmith knew exactly what to draw: a comic strip about the complexities of growing up multiracial in the U.S., as told by a character named Puppitty.

Half-dog, half-cat, Puppity looks a little different than others and doesn’t always feel like she fits in, like many of multiracial descent:

Some try to put Puppitty into boxes based off stereotypes ― something Khansmith said she dealt with often while growing up.

“I would get a lot of stereotypes about being black or being Asian that would discredit my achievements,” the animation student told HufffPost. “Others would come up and say, ‘Just ignore them. You’re you!’”

That latter was a “nice thought,” but not the easiest message to absorb as a little kid, Khansmith said.

In the comic, Puppitty often has to explain her mixed identity to others in simple terms they’ll understand: 

Khansmith used animals as her characters so people of all mixed backgrounds could relate ― and so far, they have. 

Since posting the series on Tumblr last week, she’s received a ton of positive feedback and even requests from parents to turn Puppitty into a printed picture book.

“It’s been amazing. I’ve had a lot of people message me and tell me how much the comic meant to them and how happy they were to have their story told,” she said. 

Despite the confusing parts, being mixed race in America is “an equally unique and beautiful experience as well,” Khansmith said.

And as Puppitty finds out, being mixed race means you’re far more likely to relate to others who feel “different” ― and that’s always a good thing:  

To read “Puppitty” in its entirety, head over to Khansmith’s Tumblr page
