What does it mean for the U.S. to have a "good relationship" with Russia or Israel? Here I explain how a good relationship is not one where you blindly tolerate harmful things that the other party does...but rather, one where you are assertive and have a strong enough bond of trust that you can freely criticize the other party. #russia #israel #trump

This had been a much-neglected article on our site and I gave it an overhaul! It's exciting, there have been new scientific studies that came out since we wrote the first draft, and I incorporated the new results, including some fascinating stuff how about the L-theanine in tea may partially protect against the sleep-interfering properties of caffeine. #tea #sleep #health
Does tea help or harm sleep? Tea contains caffeine, which can interfere with sleep, especially if consumed too close to bedtime, but it also contains L-theanine, which may partially protect from this effect. Herbal teas are another story! Here we give a comprehensive overview of all the research on tea, and also end with a few general tips for promoting healthy sleep! #tea #sleep #health

How do you synthesize the healthy, empowering idea of living life with no regrets, with the seemingly conflicting idea of avoiding being in denial about bad choices you may have made in the past? Here I explain how to take the best of both approaches. #positive #noregrets #personalgrowth

I love blending tea with rose petals, and this green tea blended with rose petals from Udyan Tea (a company that has consistently impressed me) was one of the best. A beautiful blend! #tea #greentea #rose

Just made an "undiscovered gems" YouTube playlist of my videos that have the lowest number of views. I think there are actually some really good videos in here, they're just not the sexiest topics. Take a peek if you want to be exposed to some new ideas, I'd really love these ideas to get out there as much as my other videos! #youtube #ideas #playlist

This tea is widely available in Barnes & Noble cafes, which is where I tried it. Although I prefer spearmint to peppermint, I thought this was good quality. #tea #herbaltea #peppermint

This article has been a long time in the making! This is another one of those topics where I see a lot of popular articles about one study here or there but I wasn't able to find a comprehensive article summarizing all the different research, so I created one! I hope people find it useful. #tea #health #osteoporosis
Does tea have any effect on bone density or osteoporosis? The research is still inconclusive, but there is some preliminary evidence suggesting that tea, especially green tea, may promote bone health through a variety of different mechanisms.

I actually prefer Hillary Clinton over the third-party candidates. But I am so disturbed by Trump that I would probably still vote for Clinton even if I liked her much less. Here I explain what I like about Clinton and why I think she'd make a good leader, and I also compare her to the three most influential third-party candidates, and talk a little about other third-party candidates and why I do not think they'd make better choices. #politics #election2016 #hillaryclinton

I found this research interesting because, while it was easy to find popular medical publications telling people to avoid tea if they suffer from acid reflux, none of the sites I found that recommended avoiding tea, cited any sources. When I looked for the hard evidence, it just wasn't there and I found a lot of evidence saying tea was safe or showed no association with acid reflux. #tea   #health   #science  
Doctors or medical publications sometimes recommend to avoid tea (among other caffeinated drinks) for people suffering from acid reflux (heartburn or GERD). But is there any evidence that tea causes or worsens acid reflux? All the studies we were able to locate failed to find a connection. #tea   #heartburn   #health

Tumblr is full of passion, energy, and enthusiasm for progressive social and political issues, but I don't hear people talking much at all about environmental issues. Here I talk about a few issues that I would love to see people on Tumblr and younger liberal people in general get more excited about. #environment   #sustainability   #tumblr
