Michael Moore Prescient Pollster: Predicting the Improbable Presidency

Documentary filmmakers gathered at Criterion offices the day after presidential election 2016 to celebrate Kristen Johnson’s Cameraperson, a compilation of her work shooting for prominent directors like Laura Poitras (Citizen Four) and Michael Moore (Trumpland), who were slated to join Johnson on a panel. Given the election results the night before, the event was nearly cancelled but the participants decided to proceed, modifying the agenda to include discussion of the proverbial elephant in the room. Readers of Moore’s blog since July were well aware of this premier satirist’s warnings, that disenfranchised white men would swing for Trump, and they did, shaking up even the most astute pollsters. Now, suffering election hangover, everyone wanted to know, what do we do next?

Michael Moore was running late. A huge crowd had gathered in Union Square a block away to protest the Trump victory. “Not our president,” read signs, as police lined barricades. Moore is a hard man to hide, even when he’s got his signature hat pulled down at the brim. And so they stopped him to make a speech at the rally. Before he showed up to speak on the panel, Poitras read Moore’s advice: Take over the Democratic Party, a disappointment, fire the pollsters, remember that the media created Trump, and most of all, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. “Our fellow Americans did not want Trump,” said Moore. “White men running the show is over.”

Sleep the Single Most Important Determinant in Predicting Longevity

2015-06-25-1435224529-7585081-sleeping_woman.jpg

The most basic change we can make in redefining Third Metric success in our lives has to do with our relationship to sleep and the sleep environment.

Healthy Sleep has been empirically proven to be the single most important determinant in predicting longevity, more important than diet, exercise, or heredity.

William C. Dement, founder of the Sleep Research Center at Stanford University, the world’s first sleep laboratory, and part of the team which first identified the different stages of sleep.

Sleep an Important Aspect of our Health

Supporting a Better Sleep

At least a third of us don’t sleep well. Most people wake up tired and the tiredness lasts throughout the day. However, sleep is an essential physiological function; a key research concept is that of Till Roenneberg social jetlag — the difference between when our internal body clock wants us to get up in the morning versus when we are forced out of bed by our alarm clock.

Sleep underpins all aspects of our health; it is when our bodies are designed to recover from the stresses of the day before, and to prepare for the stresses of the day ahead. Poor sleep can lead to an increase in the chronic stress response and thus a reduction in the immune function and further consequences to almost every aspect of our health and wellbeing.

Rested sleep is not just about how many hours we sleep, but also about quality of sleep, and a significant part of the quality is about the sleep environment.

Sleep Environment

Modern advances in sleep research using infrared and magnetic technology have made possible the creation of the optimal sleep environment. The elements of the Kenko Naturest Sleep System are designed to work in harmony together to cocoon you in an advanced, adaptive, sleeping environment, to create the best chance of the highest quality of sleep, the feeling of sleeping in nature in our own homes, and to help achieve the level of sleep for your mind and body to function not just adequately, but with energy and vitality.

When choosing a bed, most people only really give thought to the apparent comfort of the mattress. However, in order to offer the highest quality sleep – and adequate rest and recovery – there are many considerations that need to be resolved in the sleep environment. These include: physical comfort, supportive thermal environment with moisture control, ventilation stimulation, hygiene and energetic environment all designed to support the highest quality sleep.

The Kenko Sleep System> optimizes each of these different factors for each individual, even if they share a bed with a partner who might have significantly different requirements at any one time.

Additional Sleep Tips From the Experts Consulted in Thrive

• Make your bedroom darker and keep it cool.
• Practice deep breathing before bed.
• Take a warm bath before bed.
• Exercise or at least walk every day.
• Banish all LCD screens (laptops, tablets, smartphones, TV) at night.
• Cut down on coffee after 2 pm and avoid alcohol right before bedtime to give the body time to metabolize it.

Creating Our Personal Sleep Revolution

Creating a healthier, happier life doesn’t need to be complicated. By simply incorporating the Kenko Naturest Sleep System into our bed and adding the sleep tips suggested we will begin to create a revolution in our culture, our thinking, our workplaces, and our lives.
