Lisa Bonet will be 54 this year and yet she is sort of the same age as her 32-year-old daughter, Zoë. The actress who became famous for her role as Denise Huxtable in “The Cosby Show” and “A Different World”, she recently starred in the television series “Ray Donovan” as Marisol Campos. You probably know her also because of her relationship with Lenny Kravitz, Zoë’s father.But enough about that, let’s get back to her ageless complexion.

Lucky for us, she recently shared a few of her secrets with The New York Times. “I use things that are fairly active at night to spin the cells,” Bonet explains. “I owe my facialist Dayle Breault a lot for my sustained youth. But I have always taken skin care very seriously – since I was a child and I would go to the drugstore to buy this apricot scrub.” And while so, she obviously has good genes, she says that’s not all to blame. “I also have very sensitive skin that requires a fair amount of care,” Bonet explained. “I’m not one of those people who can fall asleep with their makeup on and wake up and be fine.” Maybe not, but you can tell after taking a look at these no makeup Instagram photos she has shared over the years.

Lawmakers Respond to Passage of ‘Women’s Health Protection Act’ in US House https://drjimmirios.com/lawmakers-respond-to-passage-of-womens-health-protection-act-in-us-house/ https://drjimmirios.com/lawmakers-respond-to-passage-of-womens-health-protection-act-in-us-house/#respond Fri, 24 Sep 2021 17:10:31 +0000 https://drjimmirios.com/lawmakers-respond-to-passage-of-womens-health-protection-act-in-us-house/

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Regional lawmakers are responding to the passage of a federal bill that would protect Texas women from state laws prohibiting access to reproductive health care, especially abortion.

On Friday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA) which Democrats say is central to preserving abortion rights.

“Abortion is health care and a constitutional right” tweeted Congresswoman Veronica Escobar (TX-16).

“The Women’s Health Protection Act enshrines the constitutional right to reproductive health care and protects women from extreme and dangerous prohibitions like Texas SB 8,” the tweet continued.

The WHPA would guarantee access to abortion for women despite state laws like SB 8 which prohibits abortion after the first six weeks of pregnancy.

The White House endorsed the WHPA earlier this week, with President Biden’s management and budget office saying “it has never been more important to codify this constitutional right and strengthen access to health care for all women, regardless of their place of residence ”.

The WHPA would realize a national right to abortion by preserving legal guarantees under Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey who supported the right to abortion in 1992.

The bill would prohibit federal and state governments from adopting or enforcing any laws, standards, rules or other provisions that conflict with any of the provisions of the WHPA.

The vote in the House comes as Gov. Greg Abbott prepares to sign a bill to limit the use of medical abortion after seven weeks and completely ban the mailing of these pills.

Republicans say Senate Bill 4 (SB4) would protect women’s health, saying in-person ultrasounds would ensure doctors can monitor patients more effectively.

The WHPA must be passed by both the House and the Senate to be enacted, and needs 60 votes to pass in the Senate.

U.S. Representative Melanie Stansbury (NM-01) voted in favor of the bill on Friday.

“Reproductive justice is a matter of human rights and social justice. The ability of individuals to make decisions about their own bodies and to access health care is fundamental to their self-determination and well-being. I am proud to co-sponsor the Women’s Health Protection Act and I was proud to have voted to pass it in the House today, ”she said.

Republicans protested the bill ahead of the vote and argued that it extended beyond the Roe decision. GOP members also said the WHPA would deprive states of the ability to regulate abortion and prevent states from introducing measures to make abortions safer or lead to late abortions.

“The legislation before us is perhaps the most extreme abortion measure Congress has ever considered,” said Representative Julia Letlow (LA-05). “It will overturn countless protections for the unborn child that states have already put in place.”

The passage of the WHPA comes as states passed more than 90 laws to restrict access to abortion in 2021. New Mexico is one of the few states to have taken action in 2021 to preserve abortion. women’s reproductive rights.

“Across the country, we are seeing an increase in attacks on our bodies, our independence and our health systems. In New Mexico, we are already feeling the effects of Texas’ unconstitutional abortion ban as more and more people seek care in our state, ”Stansbury said. “We must act at the national level to ensure that essential reproductive health care services are available in all communities and that individuals and health care providers cannot be criminalized for exercising their rights. “

Here is the position of Colorado officials on the Women’s Health Protection Act https://drjimmirios.com/here-is-the-position-of-colorado-officials-on-the-womens-health-protection-act/ https://drjimmirios.com/here-is-the-position-of-colorado-officials-on-the-womens-health-protection-act/#respond Thu, 23 Sep 2021 22:12:38 +0000 https://drjimmirios.com/here-is-the-position-of-colorado-officials-on-the-womens-health-protection-act/

The four Democratic United States House members from Colorado – Jason Crow, Diana DeGette, Joe Neguse and Ed Perlmutter – co-sponsor the Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021, that would protect a woman’s right to have an abortion and prohibit states from creating medically unnecessary bans or restrictions on abortions.

Newsline has contacted the seven members of the Colorado congressional delegation, including Republicans Lauren Boebert, Ken Buck and Doug Lamborn, to ask for their position on the HR 3755 legislation. Of those who responded, here is what they said :

lodge

Crow, a Democrat representing Colorado’s 6th Congressional District, is an original co-sponsor of the WHPA.

“With increasingly brazen attacks on Roe. v. Wade, it is time to codify equal access to abortion care in this country ”, Crow wrote in a statement provided by Kaylin Dines, Crow’s communications director. “Passing the Women’s Health Protection Act will help ensure that everyone, no matter who they are or where they live, is free to make the best healthcare decisions for themselves,” his family and his life. “

Boebert, of Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, expressed its position on the legislation in a joint Washington Examiner report editorial, his office told Newsline. “Although the law on the protection of women’s health states that access to abortion is essential for women’s participation in the ‘social and economic life of the nation’, we know that women do not. not need to kill their unborn children to function equally in society, ”Boebert wrote. “Multitasking women are capable of all that life has to offer, including the pursuit of educational goals and professional development alongside raising children. “

DeGette Spokeswoman Jane Fillion noted that the Denver MP is a major co-sponsor of the WHPA and co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus.

Perlmutter ‘Director of Communications Ashley Verville said from the representative: “I have long supported a woman’s right to choose what is best for her health and her family in consultation with her doctor… To this end, I co-sponsor the Women’s Health Protection Act and signed the amicus brief urging the United States Supreme Court to uphold Roe v. Wade. I support the legislation and will continue to work to ensure that every woman has equal access to reproductive health care and the freedom to live the life she chooses.

male and Lamborn both have already taken anti-abortion positions.

Senate

Sense. Michel Bennet and John Hickenlooper of Colorado, both Democrats, also joined the WHPA.

About the invoice

If passed, the Women’s Health Protection Act would allow health-care providers to perform abortions on women without limitation, which would require women seeking an abortion to make unnecessary in-person visits before having an abortion. have an abortion. The law also prohibits states from prohibiting or limiting abortions at any time before fetal viability.

In a press release on Wednesday, Cobalt, a Colorado organization that works to advance reproductive rights and access to abortion, urged the U.S. House of Representatives to pass HR-3755. “Since 2011, anti-abortion lawmakers have passed more than 500 restrictive laws in state legislatures that make abortion difficult and, at times, impossible to access,” the press release said. “These abortion restrictions and bans are becoming increasingly extreme and disproportionately harming people who already face discriminatory barriers to health care, especially black people, Indigenous people and other people of color, those who working to make ends meet, women, youth, people with disabilities, immigrants, people living in rural communities and members of the LGBTQI + community.

“We need Congress to pass the WHPA and affirm the constitutional right to abortion in federal law so that these attacks on abortion access stop,” Cobalt President Karen Middleton said in the statement. Press release. “The people of Colorado have said time and again that they support the right to abortion, and our federal laws should reflect these values.”

January survey out of 1,629 registered voters conducted by Hart Research Associates found that 61% of voters support the Women’s Health Protection Act.

This is the first “proactive abortion rights” legislation passed in Congress in nearly 30 years, according to Cobalt.

Texas recently passed the nation’s most restrictive abortion ban, and the U.S. Supreme Court has refused to block it. The law came into effect on September 1.

The House of Representatives is expected to vote on the women’s health protection law on Friday morning.

Democrats roll the dice on abortion rights bill – again https://drjimmirios.com/democrats-roll-the-dice-on-abortion-rights-bill-again/ https://drjimmirios.com/democrats-roll-the-dice-on-abortion-rights-bill-again/#respond Thu, 23 Sep 2021 09:00:00 +0000 https://drjimmirios.com/democrats-roll-the-dice-on-abortion-rights-bill-again/

A newly conservative Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case it was believed would use to overturn the landmark 1973 ruling on abortion rights, Roe vs. Wade. And Capitol Hill Democrats, confident the issue would work in their political favor, pledged to propose legislation that would enshrine abortion protections into federal law. “We are going to debate it. We will vote on it. And we will adopt it, ”promised the Democratic leader of the Senate.

Seems familiar? The year was 1992. The Supreme Court case in question was Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey. After the court surprised almost everyone by defending the right to abortion, the legislation, called the “Freedom of Choice Act,” never reached the Senate or the House. (Click the hyperlink to go back in time.)

Lawmakers today face almost the same situation. The Supreme Court has scheduled arguments this week for Dec. 1 in a Mississippi case challenging that state’s ban on abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy. And the House, as early as this week, could vote on the latest version of the Freedom of Choice Act, now called the “Women’s Health Protection Act”.

The question now, as then, is whether the legislation will help or hurt Democrats on one of the most polarizing issues in politics.

As in 1992, opponents of the current bill complain that it would go far beyond simply drafting protections for Roe deer in federal law. In addition to guaranteeing a person’s right to abortion throughout pregnancy, the legislation would override many state restrictions that the Supreme Court has allowed even though Roe deer stands, including those requiring parental involvement in the decision to abort a minor.

“This is possibly the most extreme legislation ever,” Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) Told the House Rules Committee on Monday. “Abortion for any reason at any stage of pregnancy until birth. “

The bill, Republicans complained, would not only reverse existing state abortion restrictions, but it could also lead to mandatory public funding for abortion. The overthrow of the so-called Hyde Amendment that has banned most federal funding for abortion since the late 1970s is a priority for many progressive Democrats, but it also marks a line that voters in many swing districts don’t want. not that their elected officials cross.

While the scenarios seem eerily similar, some key differences emerge. Most important: In 1992, the threat to the right to abortion was moot; in 2021, millions of pregnant people have already lost their reproductive rights after the High Court failed to block a controversial Texas law that bans nearly all abortions as early as six weeks pregnant. To prevent the courts from blocking it, the law must be enforced not by state officials, but by individuals suing those who “help or encourage” someone to obtain an abortion.

Under the law, Representative Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) Told the Rules Committee on Monday that “the whole country has essentially been turned into bounty hunters for women exercising a constitutionally protected right.”

“Texas has just completely changed what is at stake,” said Cecile Richards, former president of Planned Parenthood and longtime observer of Texas politics. (Her mother, Ann Richards, who died in 2006, was governor in the 1990s.) “Well, it just happened.”

Yet abortion policy is both very similar to what it was three decades ago, and very different.

What is the same is that the outliers of both parties – Democrats who oppose abortion rights and Republicans who support them – would rather not have to vote on the issue. What is different is that there are a lot less outliers today. In 1992, nearly a third of Democrats opposed abortion, including then-Pennsylvania Governor Robert Casey, who was the defendant in the Planned Parenthood trial and who attempted, publicly and unsuccessfully, to change the party platform in 1992 to oppose abortion. Her son, Senator Robert “Bob” Casey Jr. (D-Pa.), Is one of a handful of Senate Democrats who do not strongly support abortion rights.

But it’s not just the anti-abortion Democrats who are outnumbered. In 1992, Republicans were as likely to lead the fight for abortion rights as Democrats, and most efforts were bipartisan. Before 1972, in fact, Republicans were generally more supportive of abortion rights than Democrats.

And obviously the biggest difference between now and 1992 is that Republican President George HW Bush has vowed to veto the abortion rights bill if it passes. President Joe Biden would sign it, according to an official “Administrative Policy Statement” released Monday. “Following the unprecedented attack in Texas, it has never been more important to codify this constitutional right and to strengthen access to health care for all women, regardless of their place of residence,” indicates the press release.

Bush and Biden’s own positions on abortion probably best demonstrate how much the parties have changed on the issue. As a member of the House, former President Bush was the primary sponsor of the federal government’s Title X family planning program – now strongly opposed by anti-abortion Republicans. Biden, a devout Catholic, opposed the right to abortion early in his Senate career and was criticized by activists for not uttering the word “abortion” as president until the Texas law comes into effect.

Biden, however, will almost certainly not have the opportunity to sign the Women’s Health Protection Act. At least not anytime soon. While the bill may have enough support to get through the House, support in the Senate remains well below the 60 votes needed to break a blockage.

That won’t stop the fight from happening, however. What remains to be seen is which side of the abortion debate will ultimately win the battle for public support.

Improving the health of black women is essential to build back better https://drjimmirios.com/improving-the-health-of-black-women-is-essential-to-build-back-better/ https://drjimmirios.com/improving-the-health-of-black-women-is-essential-to-build-back-better/#respond Wed, 22 Sep 2021 19:30:08 +0000 https://drjimmirios.com/improving-the-health-of-black-women-is-essential-to-build-back-better/

After winning the election, President BidenJoe BidenUN meeting with US and France canceled due to timing issue Schumer to lift GOP blockade on Biden state. attributed her victory to the support and activism of black women, and now is the time to insist that the President put our needs first as if our very lives depended on it. As Congress debates Biden’s Build Back Better program, lawmakers have the rare opportunity to make sweeping improvements to America’s health care system in ways that improve the lives of all Americans, and especially black women.

In particular, lawmakers should prioritize policies that tackle the maternal health crisis, increase access to coverage, and make prescription drugs more affordable. Given that black women suffer disproportionate prejudice by the current system – in terms of access, affordability, and culturally appropriate care – these long overdue advances could save the lives of black women.

For example, black women are about three times more likely than non-Hispanic white women to die from pregnancy-related complications. African American women have 15 times the rate of AIDS than white women. And while African American women are no more likely than white women to get breast cancer, they are 40 percent more likely to die from the disease. Black women are also more likely to be uninsured and underinsured and, even among those with insurance, are more likely to report difficulty paying for care and prescriptions. Many of these inequalities are the result of long-standing failures in our economy, housing and health care systems, failures that have only been exacerbated by COVID-19.

Congress and the Biden administration have already made significant strides in health care. The American Rescue Plan, for example, included a new option for states to extend Medicaid coverage to people postpartum. People received increased financial assistance to purchase private insurance, as well as additional time to purchase this coverage. And, of course, great emphasis has been placed on ensuring that COVID-19 vaccination and testing is free and readily available. The currently envisioned bipartisan infrastructure package could also have health implications by improving water quality and eliminating lead pipes – which frequently harm black children and pregnant women – and attacking bridges. and the crumbling roads that pose a security threat to many black communities.

While these advances are important, no single policy can remedy decades of neglect and intentional discrimination.

Over the past two years, the Black Maternal Health Caucus has introduced a comprehensive set of bills, known as Momnibus. This legislation focuses on black people who have recently given birth and would improve the quality of care; increase and diversify the available birth attendants; address climate, housing and other social determinants of health; and meet the unique needs of pregnant people during the pandemic. The House of Representatives included these provisions in the Build Back Better Act, and the Senate should ensure that these essential policies are included in the final version of the bill. Lawmakers should also ensure that eligible people in every state can access Medicaid for at least a year after giving birth, and the program should be required to cover doula services.

More than 10 years ago president obamaBarack Hussein ObamaDems responds to Biden’s GOP blockade SBA candidate Biden praises Trudeau for winning third term as Canadian Prime Minister Republicans have moral and financial reasons to oppose raising debt ceiling MORE enacted the Affordable Care Act, which, among other things, aimed to ensure that more low-income people would be eligible for the free or low-cost services provided by Medicaid. Sadly, 12 states – mostly southern and midwestern states with disproportionately black populations – refused to extend eligibility. Due to wage inequalities and systemic barriers to private coverage, black women fall disproportionately into the Medicaid coverage gap, leaving many without affordable coverage options. Congress should ensure that your ability to access coverage does not depend on where you live by permanently and completely closing the Medicaid coverage gap. More so, Congress is expected to expand the availability of financial aid currently available – but soon to expire – to purchase private plans in the insurance markets.

Finally, it has been well documented that the United States pays too much for drugs and therapies. By allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices, this policy can save consumers and taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars, savings that can be used to pay for other investments in health care. Since the vast majority of women use at least one prescription, this would have both a health and financial benefit. Black women, in particular, depend on prescriptions for life-saving therapies, given the disproportionate number of chronic diseases they face.

The Build Back Better program is also expected to include several provisions, such as paid family and medical leave and child care services, that would improve both the health and economic security of black women. These changes will not address all of the social ills plaguing black women, but as the nation seeks to rebuild the healthcare system after the pandemic and continue its long-awaited racial calculus, now is the time to focus on health and well-being of black women.

Gynecological cancer: prioritizing women’s health means awareness and action https://drjimmirios.com/gynecological-cancer-prioritizing-womens-health-means-awareness-and-action/ https://drjimmirios.com/gynecological-cancer-prioritizing-womens-health-means-awareness-and-action/#respond Tue, 21 Sep 2021 17:03:20 +0000 https://drjimmirios.com/gynecological-cancer-prioritizing-womens-health-means-awareness-and-action/

By Ruchi Garg, MD, Director of the National Gynecologic Oncology Program at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America

Gynecologic cancer is a general term for any cancer that attacks the female reproductive organs. It is indiscriminate in that women of all ages, races and ethnicities can be affected and it can be difficult to detect, especially in the early stages.

Although there are many forms of gynecologic cancer, there are five types that account for the vast majority of cases: cervix, ovary, uterus, vagina and vulva. Other types that we come across include peritoneal disease, fallopian tube disease, and gestational trophoblastic disease. According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 117,000 American women will be diagnosed with gynecologic cancer this year alone, including more than 66,500 cases of uterine cancer.

Caucasian women have the highest incidence of uterine, ovarian and vulvar cancer. Black women tend to have more aggressive types of uterine cancer and, unfortunately, are also diagnosed with the highest number of vaginal cancer cases per capita. Hispanic / Latin women are affected by cervical cancer at a higher rate than any other group. Statistics from the American Cancer Society further reveal that women under the age of 50 are the most likely to be diagnosed with cervical cancer, while older women have a higher likelihood of developing cervical cancer. Uterus cancer.

Symptoms of gynecologic cancers are not the same for all women, and some may not have any symptoms at first. Family history can also be an indicator. One clear point to remember: Pay attention to your body and know what is normal for you, so that you can recognize the warning signs or symptoms of gynecological cancer.

Any unusual vaginal bleeding in pre- or postmenopausal women should be reported to a doctor as soon as possible. It could be an anomaly, but it could be a sign of cancer and the only way to know for sure is to get it checked out. If it turns out to be cancer, the sooner you and your doctor know it, the more likely you are to be successful with your treatment.

Abnormal bleeding is the most common sign of gynecologic cancer, but not the only one. Other symptoms include:

  • Pelvic pain or pressure
  • Abdominal or back pain
  • Bloating and early satiety (feeling full quickly)
  • Persistent changes in toilet habits (increased urination, constipation, diarrhea, fine or ribbon-shaped stools)
  • Itching or burning of the vulva
  • Changes in the color of the vulva or skin (rash, sores, warts, ulcers)

If you experience these signs or other symptoms that persist for a few weeks, don’t delay and see a doctor because gynecologic cancer can affect ten different women in ten different ways.

The good news is that there are effective screening methods available to detect cervical and uterine cancers at an early stage. Sticking to a regular checkup schedule with your doctor (s) is vitally important and can help ensure gynecologic cancers are identified sooner.

Take-home message: Any woman with known or suspected gynecologic cancer should be evaluated and treated by a gynecologist-oncologist early on, if possible. In fact, research suggests that women with gynecologic cancers who are treated by a gynecologic oncologist have better outcomes and chances of survival than those who are not.

Gynecologic cancers are complex, and treatment often involves multiple approaches, such as surgery, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy. A gynecologic oncologist is a doctor who may be able to manage all or most of your treatment, which often involves multiple approaches, such as surgery, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy.

Mariam Mohammed is a speaker, entrepreneur and co-founder of MoneyGirl, a social enterprise providing financial literacy to young women, with a great approach to making the most of the day.

And she has one key tip for all of us: stop scrolling Instagram. You don’t need influencers in your life, which makes you feel bad, so that they can sell more of whatever they sell on the platform, she says. Mariam made the comments before we even learned that Facebook was researching Instagram’s harmful impacts on teenage mental health.

Mariam is the latest to feature in our health Q&A, featuring women from different fields sharing how they manage their health.

She talks honestly about the morning wrestling, as well as the huge role dance plays in her daily exercise routine and as a tool to support her mental health.

Mariam was the guest of the fourth season of our Women’s Agenda podcast series, The Leadership Lessons. You can listen to her raw interview here, where she speaks openly about her financial independence after escaping domestic violence.

In the morning I…

Take about 2 hours to wake up properly.

I turn off my 5e alarm and start the day with a little water. If you’ve met me before, you know that my water bottle is always close to me. You have to stay hydrated if you want to change the world!

Then I make my beloved chai – locally produced, sourced from an Australian social enterprise, Miks Chai. This is my favorite part of my morning ritual.

I enjoy my cup of tea, usually with granola or avo bread. And that’s why I’m unable to buy a house in Sydney, and not because inventing mortgages is crazy.

During this time, I listen to instrumental music to calm the existential angst of a dying planet. I usually follow this up with a bit of yoga. Sometimes I can even meditate. But most of the time, I’m just super excited to get out of bed, really. Hooray!

My exercise routine includes …

Dancing. There isn’t much else in the world that I can be convinced to do in order to exercise regularly.

I do yoga a few days a week. I also like walks and hikes. But dancing is my way of keeping mentally and physically fit.

In a pre-lockdown world, this was dance lessons at my local dance studio, DUTI. In this post-apocalyptic world, that’s all I can hover my cursor over, online.

My favorite workout is …

A dance hall class at DUTI Studios!

I find the balance in …

Sleep about 9 hours a day, play 8 more and work out what is left.

I live with high level anxiety and ADHD. Basically that means this one, my brain is rarely quiet. And second, my energy comes in waves.

So, firstly, I have to prioritize gambling to take care of my sanity. For example, dancing!

Second, I have to look into my energy flow. This means that some days I won’t work at all but then one day my energy peaks I will more than make up for it.

Yeah, I know, in your 9-5 world it just doesn’t make sense. Fortunately, I grew up in a different culture, so my determination to respect an arbitrary system does not exist. And whoomp, there it is – my balance is in my lack of rigidity.

On health, I encourage women to …

Stop scrolling Instagram.

No seriously. Does this influencer make you feel good about your skin? DO NOT TRACK. This celebrity who makes you insecure so that she can sell you tea? DO NOT TRACK. This page that makes you question your body? DO NOT FOLLOW THIS SHXT.

Kamala Harris and Douglas Emhoff’s body language, by an expert https://drjimmirios.com/kamala-harris-and-douglas-emhoffs-body-language-by-an-expert/ https://drjimmirios.com/kamala-harris-and-douglas-emhoffs-body-language-by-an-expert/#respond Sun, 19 Sep 2021 12:31:24 +0000 https://drjimmirios.com/kamala-harris-and-douglas-emhoffs-body-language-by-an-expert/

According to the stepchildren of Vice President Kamala Harris and the children of second gentleman Douglas Emhoff, the couple are always at the honeymoon stage eight years after they met. “… Doug and Kamala together are like almost cute and a couple that makes you vomit,” said Douglas’s son Cole. The New York Times. “I’m like, ‘When is this going to fade?'”

Well, if you ask body language expert Karen Donaldson (and you should), these love stuff isn’t going to fade anytime soon.

The couple have fallen in love since meeting on a blind date in 2013. Doug was so in love with Kamala after their first meeting that he emailed her about his availability for the next ones. month. Apparently the California attorney general at the time was able to pencil it in at one point since they got married the following year in Santa Monica. Kamala’s sister, Maya, officiated.

Since then, Kamala has been appointed vice president and Doug quit his job at his law firm to teach a course in entertainment law at Georgetown University. Yet despite busy schedules, they take the time to tell each other how proud they are of their accomplishments. “You know my husband and I look at each other, and I’m like, you know, ‘You’re the second gentleman in America.’ He said, “You are the Vice President of the United States. We both smile and then get down to business,” Kamala told Savannah Guthrie on the TODAY show earlier this year.

While they have understandably become a more private couple since Kamala was elected alongside President Joe Biden, Donaldson says that doesn’t mean the couple are no less open-handed. To prove it, she analyzed their every move below.

A victory for their partner is a victory for them.

“Kamala and Douglas are uniquely focused on each other. Their bodies are fully facing each other and their eye contact excludes the world and only includes each other,” says Donaldson. This ability to shut everything down, even for a moment, is a telltale sign that a couple is deep down. This moment of Kamala’s inauguration is full of love, Donaldson points out, something she knows because of Kamala’s hand on Doug’s heart.

Their expressions are also a great gift. “Kamala’s excitement and happiness is written on her face in the way she smiles,” says Donaldson. She can tell Doug wears a similar expression thanks to the creases near his eyes.

They are secure in their relationship.

You probably don’t need someone to break that adorable look Kamala gives Doug, but here it is anyway: Donaldson says the VP is “really in love.” Not only are her eyes fixed on Doug, but Kamala’s body is also tilted slightly towards him, which means her attention is 100% on him right now.

Now for the details you might have missed. Doug’s arm around Kamala is a protective gesture. Now that doesn’t mean Kamala Needs protect, but Doug’s relaxed fingers and his arm lightly wrapped around her shoulders are her way of reminding her that he’s there if and when she needs him.

They share a similar mindset.

Aaaaand we have that sweet look again.

As a bonus, Kamala and Doug’s body language is reflected. This means that they are on the same wavelength and share the same goals.

The posture and tilt of the vice president go even further. Donaldson knows that Kamala is totally comfortable with Doug as she is slightly slumped. “As powerful as Kamala is, it’s nice to know that she has the support of someone she can be completely comfortable with,” she said.

Donaldson also points to a “high level of connectivity” due to the way Kamala leans into Doug’s space, turns her head towards him, and sports a smile that Donaldson calls “fully engaging.”

They are proud of each other and proud to be together.

Donaldson says this image looks a bit more staged than Kamala and Doug’s other moments. That doesn’t make the feeling any less real, however.

“Kamala has her hand on Douglas’ chest, which can be read as a gesture of connection or an act of possession,” she says. She communicates to viewers that Doug is her sweetheart and that she wouldn’t have done it any other way. On Doug’s side, his arms around Kamala’s shoulders and waist show her pride in being a source of stability for her if she needs it.

They take the time for fun times.

“Both Kamala and Douglas are fully engrossed in the moment and really having fun,” Donaldson says of this blunt shot.

“[Doug] lean towards [Kamala], which tells us he wants to be closer to her, ”Donaldson adds, noting that Doug smiles a Duchenne smile, the kind that takes your whole face and signifies true happiness.

Kamala’s smile is also quite revealing, as it reaches her eyes. It means she feels real joy, says Donaldson. Something else? The angle of Kamala’s head. “The higher someone lifts their head, the more relaxed and confident they are,” she explains. Exposing your neck, says Donaldson, is a signal of comfort. Kamala knows that around Doug she can be vulnerable, so at the moment she is totally carefree.
