The 6 Most Shockingly Irresponsible “Fitspiration” Photos The Reembody blog, up to this point, has been a thoughtful exploration of human movement, a subject about which I am extremely passionate. Today, however, I’m mad and I’m going to tell you why. I have been planning a blog post for a while on fitness misinformation, and it was originally going to be the same kind of thoughtful deconstruction found in my other installments.

The Death of Robin Williams, And What Suicide Isn't I was coming home from a long day of working when I saw the news on Twitter. Today, probably sometime this morning, Robin Williams, beloved American actor, passed away in his California home. The coroner suspects that he committed suicide, probably from asphyxiation. In the short hour since his death broke to the world, I have seen a number of reactions. I’ve seen people saddened and shocked.

How Unethical Behavior Becomes Habit When a former client’s secretary was arrested for embezzlement years before his own crimes were uncovered, Bernie Madoff commented to his own secretary, “Well, you know what happens is, it starts out with you taking a little bit, maybe a few hundred, a few thousand. You get comfortable with that, and before you know it, it snowballs into something big.” We now know that Madoff’s Ponzi scheme started when he engaged in misreporting to cover relatively small financial losses. Over a 15-year period, the scam grew steadily, eventually ballooning to $65 billion, even as regulators and investors failed to notice the warning signs. Many of the biggest business scandals of recent years — including the News of the World phone hacking scandal, billions in rogue trading losses at UBS, and the collapse of Enron — have followed a similar pattern: The ethical behavior of those involved eroded over time.

I wanted to clutch at my evaporating memories by putting everything that happened during that time into writing. Regarding Filming and Editing What happened to U.S. mental health care after deinstitutionalization? If you ask any social policy expert to describe a well-intentioned initiative that didn't work out as planned, the word “deinstitutionalization” will probably appear in her response. This conventional wisdom is vastly oversimplified. In a recent law review article, University of Michigan disability expert Samuel Bagenstos notes that the broad set of policies designed to move individuals with disabilities out of large institutions into family- or community-based settings was more complicated — and often more beneficial — than is now remembered. On the whole, deinstitutionalization improved the lives of millions of Americans living with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) — albeit with many exceptions. These policies allowed people to live with proper support, on a human scale, within their own communities.
