Thoughtcatalog.com says, “Happiness is fleeting. It’s that line on the heart monitor that ascends to the highest peak but falls just as easily, if not sooner. It’s that spike in your blood sugar level after an unlawful amount of chocolate. It’s the deluded caffeine high after one too many cups of black coffee. It’s transitory and it’s short-lived.”
Is it true? No, not necessarily. Actually, happiness is the most normal, healthy state a human being can live in, and it can be a permanent experience. This week on LOA Today, we look at scientific studies being done today that move us closer to the conclusion that happiness can and should be our normal experience, as well as telling us what it will take for us to get there.

palmer-reflexWhen a child is sick and parents are in “get it done” mode, stand back. We’re booking appointments, stocking up on supplies, recruiting therapists, setting up protocols, implementing new programs, and buying lots (and lots) of supplements. It’s a relief to be productive but the feeling doesn’t last. Our frenzied, sleepless activity gives way to a kind of unnatural calm where we ask:
What am I missing?
There are elements of a child’s growth and development that are almost always overlooked. This is true for all children but it’s especially true for those on a healing journey. For example:
State-of-the-art won’t mean a thing if the basics aren’t covered — think: sleep, sunshine, laughter.
What are retained primitive reflexes and what do they have to do with memory, sensory integration, emotional maturity, eating, handwriting, and stress management (among many, many others)?
Did you know that visual acuity (i.e., can your child see the blackboard?) is just one component of vision?

“No flow, no go.” That may be the simplest way to describe the critical role of central banks to the flow of credit and money into any monetary system. It was the lack of access to cash and bank liquidity that humbled Greece, Detroit and others. Ellen speaks with Dr. Timothy Canova, one of the foremost experts on our central bank, the Federal Reserve, about why their operation of our cash spigot determines who wins and who loses. Co-host Walt McRee speaks with Gwen Hallsmith about a newly published handbook focusing on new ways to invest in local economies and Matt Stannard reviews the Fed from a visionary point of view – what could be accomplished if the Fed worked for the public interest?

St. Louis Police Killing of Mansur Ball-Bey: We Reveals New Details
Party Pooper?: Biden’s Possible Run Confirms Hillary Clinton’s Vulnerability
Mansur Ball-Bey, 18, was shot dead by police Aug. 19 during a house raid. Two police officers involved in the shooting say he aimed at them with a gun and they fired in self-defense. Witnesses, however, have said the Ball-Bay was not armed. The killing has reignited tensions locally and nationally about police use of force.
The deck’s getting stacked against Hillary Clinton. A campaign scrambling to hold itself together in the face of self-inflicted political wounds, the upsurge in Bernie Sanders’ popularity, a growing unease about her among highly placed fellow Democrats, and the wait-and-see attitudes of major endorsers is now rattled by the possibility that Vice President Joe Biden will run.
Leid Stories says that whether he runs or not, the mere discussion of a Biden candidacy confirms the Democratic Party’s recognition that Clinton is carrying way more baggage than it can carry.
