It is said that there is a narcissism epidemic currently happening. The news is filled with people who harm others on a daily basis. They take advantage of others for reasons of greed, manipulation, and advancement. They are object-oriented, and they seem to treat people in the same way that they would treat an ant: cold and indifferent. Many of my listeners are subjected to one or more narcissists on a daily basis. They write to me with many different questions revolving around dealing with the narcissist in their life. If a person is intuitive, introspective and analytical, they can become adept at dealing with narcissists in any walk of life. They can become a sort of expert in interacting with narcissists, psychopaths, and sociopaths so that they avoid ultimate harm. A person who experiences insult and injury should advance into self-protective modes when a narcissist or sociopath is around. We are wired to scan our environment for dangers, and then to react in appropriate ways to reduce the amount of danger to ourselves. The problem is that many of us have broken sensors. We have had so much trauma and poor experiences in our lives that we stop looking for positive people and positive experiences. We fall into a trap where we begin to settle for people who are lower on the food chain. We marry beneath us instead of striving to find a partner who is healthy, supportive, and uplifting. We don´t demand more of our friends. As a society, we have become wimpy in challenging others who do not meet our expectations that we have set for ourselves. We are told to ´be nice´, and thus we be nice to all the wrong people. While we are all on high-alert for dangers, those who have been exposed on a regular basis to narcissists and psychopaths become desensitized in their ability to detect healthy and unhealthy people. If we were raised by self-absorbed parents, we don´t think twice about dating a self-absorbed mate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Beretta.

Are you exhausted? Women today really do feel the weight of the world on their shoulders. Every morning we are greeted with a long list of to-dos: get the kids up and out the door on time, have a meaningful quiet time, put in a full day at the office, spend an hour at the gym, prepare a healthy and delicious meal (organic and locally grown, of course), and make sure the sink sparkles before you go to bed. Oh, and don’t forget to look great and smile while you’re doing it. These are all good things to do, of course. But the bigger problem occurs when we start to feel as if our worth is measured by our to-do lists. And the messages we receive at church, on Facebook, and from the media only perpetuate these unrealistic expectations, creating a relentless cycle of exhaustion. As Elyse Fitzpatrick has traveled this country, she has seen increasing evidence of this weariness epidemic invading our churches and communities. And she has good news for women everywhere: there is hope! God doesn’t judge us by our to-do lists. Free yourself today from the endless stream of bad advice and discover the true rest God offers. 1.

Our televisions bulge with weight-loss shows, as the news warn of the obesity epidemic. Fat is such a villain that larger people are stigmatized and we all are seduced by life-changing claims of a multi-billion pound diet industry. Yet, when we question if our bathroom scales can really tell us about our health, we start to ask just why and how fat holds such fascination. In this book, Jayne Raisborough explores interpretations of fat bodies from Palaeolithic Europe to Poverty Porn TV to argue that fats materiality makes it ripe for stigmatising associations. However, especially in a social context that presents health as a matter of choice, fat also emerges as an ideal redemptive substance to be pummelled and starved into submission. This book presents a fat sensibility to demonstrate how fat is helping us all become responsibilised healthy-citizens. It asks just what self are we being asked to diet ourselves into? Jayne Raisborough is Reader at the School of Applied Social Sciences, University of Brighton, UK. She is the author of Lifestyle Media and the Formation of the Self and co-editor of R isk, Identities and the Everyday. Her current work is an empirical, visual, exploration of womens negotiations of anti-ageing culture.

Sara Jaffe´s engrossing debut novel, Dryland, is a smart coming-of-age novel that charts the murky waters of adolescence. Anything can happen when Julie hits the water. It´s 1992, and the world is caught up in the HIV/AIDS epidemic and the Balkan Wars, but for Julie Winter, 15, the news is noise. In Portland, Oregon, Julie moves through her days in a series of negatives: the skaters she doesn´t think are cute, the Guatemalan backpack she doesn´t buy at the craft fair, the umbrella she refuses to carry despite the incessant rain. Her family life is routine and restrained, and no one talks about Julie´s older brother, a one-time Olympic hopeful swimmer who now lives in self-imposed exile in Berlin. Julie has never considered swimming herself until Alexis, the swim team captain, tries to recruit her. It´s a dare and a flirtation - and a chance for Julie to find her brother or to finally let him go. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carly Robins.
