Actually +Judith Anderson, like California cannabis is not exactly legal in Hawai'i.  Still backwards.  Would love to see your photos of Mau'i :-)

If Massachusetts' strict, thorough application process proves successful, I hope they can become a model for the rest of the country to get theirs together.

ADHD and Co-existing Conditions  - 
 
Wondering if anyone with ADHD has trouble with showing empathy?  This is a big one that I have been trying to master.  A therapist had advised that to feel empathy is to first practise being aware of my own feelings (at all times).  Right!  That's another one I'm continually working on.

"There's a lot of talk in this country about the federal deficit. But I think we should talk more about our empathy deficit - the ability to put ourselves in someone else's shoes; to see the world through those who are different from us - the child who's hungry, the laid-off steelworker, the immigrant woman cleaning your dorm room.
As you go on in life, cultivating this quality of empathy will become harder, not easier. There's no community service requirement in the real world; no one forcing you to care. You'll be free to live in neighborhoods with people who are exactly like yourself, and send your kids to the same schools, and narrow your concerns to what's going in your own little circle. 

Not only that - we live in a culture that discourages empathy. A culture that too often tells us our principle goal in life is to be rich, thin, young, famous, safe, and entertained. A culture where those in power too often encourage these selfish impulses.

They will tell you that the Americans who sleep in the streets and beg for food got there because they're all lazy or weak of spirit. That the inner-city children who are trapped in dilapidated schools can't learn and won't learn and so we should just give up on them entirely. That the innocent people being slaughtered and expelled from their homes half a world away are somebody else's problem to take care of. 

I hope you don't listen to this. I hope you choose to broaden, and not contract, your ambit of concern."
Barack Obama Quote About the Empathy Deficit

+Shelly Bonoan I think you're right. It doesn't seem to cover the complexity enough. Even for myself, there is more at play. Your detailed example of intellectually grasping the situation, but still being emotionally handicapped, however, is the same for me in my particular situation. 
Maybe the answer can be found indirectly, or maybe in reverse. Maybe the "why" won't come on this side of the equation? Have you noticed, when you are in a moment of feeling emotionally handicapped, that certain behavioral responses/reactions affect where you emotions go from there? Are there certain ways you've responded that have made you less cold, or perhaps colder? If you've brought it up in the moment with your partner, how does it affect your empathy? Does it make it colder or slightly warmer? 
Or have you had any experiences where you've particularly struggled to find empathy for someone outside your personal relationships? 

 +Shane Green I also think you highlight another important approach, that of genetics and biological factors.

I may not have high academic credentials but I know I am creatively smart in thinking differently :-)

This one really hurts. When people with ADHD experience difficulties in school, it can mask their true intelligence. But with the right kind of support to develop their strengths, ADHDers can shine along with the brightest.

Have you heard this myth, ADHD friends? How do you respond?

Gay Man Arrested At Hospital For Refusing To Leave Sick Partner

A gay man was arrested this week at a Missouri hospital after refusing to the leave bedside of his sick partner.

(From September 2012) "I think it is just innovative for an online bank to have an internet cafe! This bank already serves me well for most of my financial needs, and tops it off with having a hip, contemporary lounge for customers to hang out. What's even more appealing for me to make this cafe my first choice home-office away from home-office is the wide open space that doesn't mimic the congested Starbucks-like foot traffic. There are some cool tips at the Waikiki location for ING Direct customers to use their bank card at the concession stand/ coffee bar for discounted prices. Fridays are still "free coffee" during happy hour!"

This shopping center has been here since I was a kid and discovered shopping. What appeals to me about this place is not only the open air layout but, the ample free parking. I might not find everything on my shopping list here but, since the addition of The Center and movie theater, I can easily walk across the street to peruse other shops and eateries.

Josh has turned this little diamond in the rough into the island's most outstanding, friendliest camera rental service for photographers in a matter of only a couple years! This is the go-to shop for all your camera equipment needs whether you are shooting as a professional or hobbyist. Make sure to take some time to talk story with Josh when you see him!

Although I tend to shy away from trendy hot spots, this joint is an easy comfort zone especially during the early part of the day. Of course their acai bowl is super generous and lip-smackin' but, it's their carob-peanut butter smoothie that gets me every time. Yum!
