"With greater oil reserves than Saudi Arabia, Venezuela should be at least moderately prosperous. Instead, it has the world’s fastest contracting economy, the second highest murder rate, inflation heading towards 1,000% and shortages of food and medicine that have pushed the poorest members of its 30 million population to the edge of a humanitarian abyss." - The Guardian

Trump's reaction to the sexual harassment allegations has been that it's just "locker room talk." I don't agree that it's just "locker room talk." It is a peek into the larger problem of sexual assault and harassment in the US and around the world.

In the Georgia election, a proposed constitutional amendment is to get rid of the Judicial Qualifications Commission. Seems like a weird amendment until one finds out what is the reason for it. A judge was disciplined for his misconduct of sexual harassment. He wants to get rid of the group who investigated him.

Just a cursory research shows that sexual assault/harassment is prevalent in all parts of society: politics, business, colleges, schools, churches, doctors, military, prisons, etc. There is no area that is immune; it is not just locker room talk, but exists everywhere.

I had been playing with some settings on my Note 4, then Pandora would not work correctly. It would play a song, but then would just hang trying to load the next song. It would not connect with the Pandora app on my Honda Accord stereo either. Turned out that it was setting it to power saving mode that caused all the problems. Need to disable the power saving mode for Pandora to work.

For several years, I've had periodontal disease. My dentist wanted me to go every three months to treat it. But, my insurance would only cover two visits a year, so I'd rarely go the recommended number of visits. I did everything the dental hygienist told me to do (brush and floss everyday), but my gums were still bleeding every time they checked it. I tried different mouth rinses, but they didn't help either.

Then, I think I've found what really works. My last visit to the dentist was six months ago. And today when I went, during the gum check, there was absolutely no bleeding. The hygienist said that the only time she's seen absolutely no bleeding was for smokers (No, I don't smoke). Even regular clients had some bleeding. So, she was curious what I had done during the past six months. I told her and she's going to start recommending that procedure to her patients.

One thing I started doing is using the DenTek Bristle Picks after every meal. The problem with gum disease is that food trapped in between teeth breeds bacteria. If you immediately get rid of food between the teeth, there's less chance of bacterial growth. I used to use a regular wooden toothpick, but it could not get out all the food particles. Even using the GUM softpicks could not get out all the food trapped between the teeth. Sure, I can use dental floss, but it's more socially acceptable to use a toothpick in public than dental floss in a restaurant or in your cubicle.

I've also stopped using dental floss. Instead, I use a waterpik flosser every night with just regular water. Then I use an interproximal brush and clean between my teeth with mouthwash. I also use an electic toothbrush instead of a regular toothbrush. Even though this sounds like a lot to do, it's actually easier than flossing.

If your gums are constantly bleeding and your dentist wants you to visit them every 3 months, give the above a try. With having absolutely no gum bleeding for me, I'm going to be ditching my dentist's advice and going with my own gum care treatment.

In elementary school and middle school, I hated PE. I always dreaded it and would beg my parents to find a way to get me out of it. It just wasn't a comfortable environment for me. I much preferred quiet and calm activities, such as reading or watching TV. Physical activity and sports just didn't interest me.

When I got to high school, PE was no longer a daily requirement, which I thought was great. It didn't take long for me to slip into a fairly sedentary lifestyle. The only 'exercise' I got was from walking from class to class each day.

But a doctor's checkup changed all that. I found out from my doctor that was considered "overweight." She urged me and my parents to find a way for me to get more physical activity. So, my mom and I started walking every day after school and she started taking me swimming on the weekends. The results have been amazing. Not only has my physical health improved, it has also helped me better manage my Asperger's.

Here are some of the benefits I've seen from getting regular exercise.

Reduces repetitive motions. Often, people with Asperger's Syndrome get comfort from making repetitive motions, such as hand flapping or drumming. As this article from LiveStrong.com on Asperger's Syndrome and exercise notes, getting regular physical activity can help "rid the muscles of pent-up energy." I've definitely seen an improvement in my own life. For me, wringing my hands or clasping them together was a go-to motion for me, especially when I was feeling anxious. But since I began working physical activity into my daily life, I've noticed that I feel the need to clasp my hands less often.

Helps maintain a healthy weight. As I mentioned before, making time for physical activity hasn't always been a priority for me. And as a result, I put on an unhealthy amount of weight. Unfortunately, as this resource on the benefits of aquatic therapy for children with ASD notes, nearly 50 percent of children on the autism spectrum are overweight or at risk of becoming so. Of course, exercising regularly is a key component of living a healthy lifestyle. It has certainly helped me get into a healthy weight range.

Improves sleep. Sleep disruption is also common among children and teens with Asperger's and autism. In its article on sleep problems and Asperger's Syndrome, the Asperger/Autism Network explains that exercising at the right time can contribute to better sleep. However, it warns that exercising 2-4 hours before bed might leave you over-stimulated. So, in order to get the sleep benefits of exercise, be sure to schedule your workout for earlier in the day.

Makes socializing easier. Children and teens with Asperger's sometimes have trouble connecting with and relating to others. HealthCentral.com notes that playing a sport provides a child with AS or ASD an opportunity to socialize with their peers in a setting that doesn't require them to be as "social." For example, I love to swim, and doing so, gives me a chance to be around kids my age, but without me feeling like I have to constantly try to follow their conversations or try to come up with things to talk about on my own. It's a fun time for me to be around my peers and to make friends while also getting much-needed exercise.

Getting regular physical exercise is important for everyone. It has positive effects on long-term physical and mental health. But I want other teens with AS to know that it pays off in the short term, too. Since I began working out regularly, my overall wellbeing has improved substantially.
