Let's get the the GOP debate. I don't see a winner - never do - but see a shift in focus for the candidates and the people. To me, none of it matters as no one can change what's going to happen in the time remaining in the hologram. It's obvious that Donald Trump's abrasive behavior is starting to wear on voters though he still is determined to make change for the country and I wouldn't count him out. Glad to see Jeb Bush is falling but so was his grandfather back in the day and he rallied in the spring. If you were still following the debates, there's lots you can see in here in media as candidates continue to abuse each other.

In a formal vote today, Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin is set to be installed as House speaker, which is often called the second most powerful job in Washington. Goodbye, John A. Boehner. It's time for change.

Migrants continue to enter Europe from Africa and the Middle East, trying to reach their destination before winter arrives. Winters are not easy in European countries, I hope they realize that.

It looks like the World Series momentum remains with the Kansas City Royals, especially as one of their pitcher lost his father Tuesday. Let's see what happens when the Mets return to Citi Field in New York Friday night. Don't count the minutes out yet.

More news later today when I update from Ezine.

Hair Shedding

Recently, I read an attractive female client, 52, who has been a hairdresser for 32 years and plans to work as long as she can as she loves it. She also suffers from ADHD and must always be busy - still working 7 days a week, seeing many clients in a day. At age 4, she told her mom she wanted to be "beauty-tian" when she grew up and has no patience for today's young adults who are lost.

She also shared something else I had already knew ... women shed their hair more in the fall. I added that hair shedding is not just seasonal but can be caused by health (physical and emotional) issues, lack of iron, medications, dieting, among other external and internal factors. What I found interesting is that several times during her reading she pulled out some of her shoulder length black hair .. casting the strands to the floor. This was a first for me with a client. I addressed this to be sure she realized what she was doing, which she did, saying she had this pattern since her teen years ... ah ... the time when mental illness starts to show itself, especially during times of stress. The pattern is called Trichotillomania, an impulse control disorder - OCD.

Conclusion ... there are the normal reasons women lose hair in the autumn compounded by genetic pre-disposition to various emotional disorders.

Autumn seems to be about "Fall" - as a Season, Clocks fall back, hair falls out, and those with SAD - Seasonal Affective Disorder - emotionally begin to fall into familiar depressive patterns.
