FARGO -- Gov. Doug Burgum is a smart dude who tries really hard to sound even smarter. That’s why he drops words like “sub-optimize” when talking about higher education. It forces us plebes to use the Google machine to figure out what the hay he’s talking about. Perhaps this is an attempt to distract us from what the hay he’s actually talking about.
One of the inevitable events in life is failure. Perhaps you have experienced failure recently; received a DUI, marriage or significant relationship ended, grades are worse than your capability, struggling at work, spiritually you have fizzled or flopped, an addiction traps you, moral failure, parenting blunder. Maybe you feel like you are in a season of failure. There is no one big event, but a lot of little things that add up and you aren’t who or where you want to be.
FARGO—When Tonya Loken tells people she is a naturopathic doctor, the most common response she gets is, "Oh, you don't have dreadlocks." "I get that a lot," she said. "I often do free 15-minute consults so people can meet me and realize I'm not a crazy witch doctor who has a cauldron in the back." Loken wants patients to know she didn't become a naturopathic doctor because she doesn't believe in modern medicine.
