A new video and infographic: What is gaslighting?

Have a look and you’ll learn much more, but here are a few bits of information to give you some context: 1.) “Gaslighting” is an abusive psychological manipulation tactic. 2.)

The term has seen a spike in searches and mentions over the last year—especially in the lead-up to the U.S. presidential election and in the aftermath—so we decided to help explain it.

You’re not good at math.” So, yeah. But I was completely thrilled to work on this video about the origins and nature of math with educator Jeff Dekofsky from the Saddleback Valley Unified School District in Viejo, California, and the folks at TED-Ed. You know why?

There’s no “math” in it.

Here’s “The Sugary Truth”

First off, let’s get this straight. I love sugar. Always have. It’s been a big part of my life since well, the beginning. My mom’s a great cook and is quite the pastry chef. Growing up, I remember my dad, brother, and I wouldn’t even be halfway through our chicken fried steaks before we were eyeing the counter for dessert. There was always something: chocolate cake, banana pudding, oatmeal cookies, pecan pie… always something. Something sugary — and delicious…
