Imus in the Morning 

June 1st, 1968 - March 29th, 2018


Deirdre's Corner

Let's Protect Our Kids and Our Planet: My life’s work, and that of The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center, has been devoted to identifying and reducing toxic environmental exposures to protect and improve children’s health. And yet, a report released just last year from the World Health Organization (WHO) implicated unhealthy and polluted environments as causing a quarter of all deaths in children under five years old.  

Exclusive Interview: Deirdre Imus Is on a Mission to Save Our Kids and Remove Toxins - Alpha Rising spent time with Deirdre Imus and got an exclusive tour of the Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center at Hackensack University Medical Center in NJ. Bottom Line: The more we remove poisonous toxins, the more we save our kids' lives.

Deirdre's Book Pick Of The Week

Methylation Diet and Lifestyle by Dr. Kara Fitzgerald & Romilly Hodges, MS, CNS - The “dance of methylation” extends far beyond supplementing with B12 and methylated folate. Indeed, long term outcome studies using this approach are lacking, and research suggests caution is advised with regard to imbalanced hypermethylation. However, much can be done to safely support methylation balance.

Easy Memorial Day Potato Salad: Recipe and photo courtesy of Ellen Troyer and the Biosyntryx Staff - This coming long weekend will also be the official start of the summer 2018 picnic season. Our Biosyntrx staff agreed that this is their favorite 'go to'  potato salad recipe since it’s easy, safe, and the flavors compliment other picnic foods without overpowering.

With the closing of The Imus Ranch For Kids with Cancer, The Imus Ranch Foundation was formed to donate 100% of all donations previously devoted to The Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer to various other charities whose work and missions compliment those of the ranch. The initial donation from The Imus Ranch Foundation was awarded to Tackle Kids Cancer, a program of The HackensackUMC Foundation and the New York Giants.  In addition, once the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer is sold, 100% of those funds will be contributed to The Imus Ranch Foundation.

From the Green Room: Cuddling

Robert "Cuddle Me" RubinYou’d think that the Secretary of the Treasury would be one of the more boring cabinet positions. Then along comes a revelation about former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin that blows that notion right out of the water:  according to sources, Bobby Bucks attempted to get his smoove on with former investment banker (and snappy dish) Iris Mack. But the way the nation’s “accountant general” likes to get busy, is not exactly the way the rest of us do. This tee-totaling, bean-counting nerd propositioned Ms. Mack…by asking her if she wanted to go upstairs and “cuddle.”

Yes, cuddle.

Two losers cuddlingEvery man has had that soul-crushing, demoralizing experience when his woman makes it known she’d prefer for the non-sexual intimacy to the favorite men’s choice: wild, abandoned, headboard-banging nookie.  When the horned toad rears its ugly head, a guy has a difficult time understanding why his old lady wants him to act like a cross between a giant throw pillow and a sleepy puppy. I’ve always maintained that if you just want to lie next to something warm, I’ll get you a hot water bottle. 

Playa Rubin, on the other hand, took the high road, not choosing the Bill Clinton/John Edwards method of spending an evening.  And yet, thinking about him curled up in a fetal position around this fiduciary fox skeeves me out more than imagining the two of them actually having sex.

Potential cuddler Lloyd BentsenSomething about Treasury Secretaries…hugging…is nastier than the idea of them doing the nasty.  Think about it.  You don’t want your head filled with the image of James Baker snuggling with his sweetie, do you?  Or Henry Paulson, naked and nuzzling? Try to conjure Lloyd Bentsen in his jammies “making spoons.”

Ewwww.

You could use that one next time you’re actually having sex and want to postpone the inevitable.  Trust me, it works better than thinking about baseball.
