"Moonlight' is in theaters today, Nov. 19

buzzz worthy. . .




A timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, MOONLIGHT chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, MOONLIGHT is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, Jenkins's staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are. "An indelible portrait of an imperiled lift, MOONLIGHT is quietly devastating in its depiction of masculinity, race, poverty, and identity. -Screen International

3 Keys to Combating Proliferating Pessimism Among Americans

buzzz worthy. . .


Expert strategies for helping people stop focusing on their problems and lead more positive, productive and rewarding lives It is sad but true: Americans are becoming overwhelmingly pessimistic. And, there is no shortage of studies to prove it. Reported data shows that that a paltry six percent of Americans think the world is getting better, while yet more reveals that a staggering two-thirds of Americans think the country is moving in the wrong direction. All of this growing negativity is understandably taking a toll on America, with escalating pessimism, stress and depression looming large across the U.S. In fact, the most recent American Psychological Association's Stress in America survey cites that over a third of adults are experiencing increased stress over the previous year while, this year alone, the National Center for Health Statistics shows suicide rates in America at a 30-year high.

Even those seemingly dedicated to making positive changes in their live…
