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.

For the past week, I have been enjoying a trip back to my favorite childhood event – Coloring. I used to sit on the porch, floor, or at the kitchen table with several coloring books and a 64 box of Crayola crayons. You had to drag me away from them.
Being an only child growing up, there was quite a bit of alone time to fill. Aside from my Atari 2600, and comic books, coloring was the best way to past the time. Now in 2015, coloring is back and adults everywhere are picking up new books, designed just for adults; with colored pencils, markers and crayons and skipping down memory lane.

It should have been recognized that eventually we would have these operating in urban areas. How many people are aware that this is going on in the United States? How long before we see these machines monitoring our moves? What dictates the “proper” use of this technology?
Just wanted to let you know what is coming.
Being a new person with a disability, I have become more attentive to news that impact the disabled. This article about Uber and Lyft is very unfortunate and I hope that they come up with a viable resolution.
For users with guide dogs or wheelchairs, it’s not uncommon for Uber and Lyft drivers to deny them a ride.
