How Narcissists Gain Power

In this YouTube video by Surviving Narcissism, Dr. Les Carter reveals the main reason narcissists gain power and control over their victims.

BBC News: BBC Can’t Find A CEO As Audiences Turn Away

In this YouTube video by Clownfish TV, the host Kneon reports on the BBC’s struggles to find a new CEO. The British people are turning away from the public tv network over several factors. “Doctor Who” is its flagship entertainment program, but has alienated fans over the same far left politics that plague “Star Wars,” “Star Trek,” Marvel and DC comics, and entertainment in general. Not mentioned in this video is BBC’s news division, which has run afoul of the Brexit movement and other populist sentiments.

Bitcoin News: Crash, Recovery, Just Another Week

In this YouTube video by Crypto Zombie, the host KDub reflects on the recent extreme drop in Bitcoin’s price, and its current stabilization. The price of one Bitcoin went over $40,000 last week, and its growth in the charts was practically vertical since Christmas. A correction was inevitable, and the question is how low it will drop. KDub lists some possibilities, and the lowest bottom seems to be just above $20,000. Just 2 months ago, $20K seemed like an unbreakable barrier to rise above.

Narcissistic Control: When You Say, No More

In this YouTube video by Surviving Narcissism, Dr. Les Carter discusses what happens when victims of narcissistic abuse stand up for themselves. In these relationships, a narcissist is fixated on making the other person into something they’re not, and has no respect for the other’s individuality. When victims realize their self worth, they start setting up boundaries and hopefully cut themselves off from their abusers. The abusers will obviously lash out with loaded questions, demands, passive aggression, or even threats and slander. The victim is made to feel guilt and shame for not conforming, but it’s really the narcissist who has the character defect.

6 Minute Abs Workout

6 Minute Abs Workout

This video by Funk Roberts gives us a quick workout for our abs and core. I plan to do this in combination with Funk’s 20-minute dumbbell workout.
