Hmmm. You mean when you click on this

FB post it doesn’t take you to the story. Or once you’re in the story you have problems?

It takes me to the story fine… But where it should link to survey monkey to take the poll, it does not.

OK, technical difficulties should be fixed. Please try it again.

Terri Schories Whew! Thanks for letting me know

Yes, “click here” worked.

The poll link is not working for me.

I tried it, too, with no luck.

Ban assault rifles. Ban bumpbstocks.

Couldn’t access it.

We fixed it. Click on the link.

Ban assault weapons

BAN RAPID FIRE RIFLES

Did. Had to write in every answer as none of the given were options I’d choose.

Worked for me.

Its not just women over 45, my families with young children are VERY afraid and they are 30 somethings. How do you let your kindergarten age child go to school without worrying??? So afraid, and they were the kids who watched Columbine happen to their friends!!!

Yes, my son was born the same year as Columbine happened. He has been afraid of being shot to death at school since he was little. He was always anxious and each time he heard news of shootings he worried. By 9th grade he was an expert on which states and countries were lowest for school shootings.

And yet we have not been able to do anything to make them safe. Why? Is it all of Congress?? NRA?? The rest of the world seems to have created a better way😙

Guns – and gun ownership – are fetishized in this country to the degree that they are the closest thing we have to a national religion. So fixing the problem on a nationwide scale seems pretty impossible to me. For shooters like the most recent one, who says that he did it for the notoriety, I’ve often thought that the media should adopt a professional code of conduct in which they agree to release no, or very minimal, information about the shooter. At least make people go online and search out more information if they really need to know, but… Read more »

We need to acknowledge that this problems exists ONLY in the US…and look to what is working, and has worked, in other countries that are successfully controlling the number of mass shootings and gun deaths. Until we can acknowledge a problem as it exists we will never resolve it. And we need to get out the vote and replace the ‘bought and sold’ politicians who are being supported by the NRA lobbyists. Therein lies one of our greatest obstacles to changing gun control laws. We need to pass legislation that regulates gun control measures [background checks, registration of gun owners,… Read more »

And we need to begin to study this topic of gun violence again. We stopped in 1996 and until we understand more about it – how do we expect to address it and resolve it?

#nomore, #endthestigma

Doesn’t work. Just like gun control

We haven’t implemented much gun control. What are basing your position on? Countries who have implemented some control are showing success rate.

Worked for me. Thank you NextTribe

Thank you, Next Tribe. Great poll.

Do any of you know who started this?

Worked fine, left info.

The Bikini (Or Not) Chronicles: We Asked, You Answered

After the blowback from our recent swimsuit story (the too-young models! the stick-thin bodies!), NextTribe did a deep dive into the types of swimsuits that you, dear reader, really love and the results of our survey are in. Here we calculate the figures — ahem, percentages.

Best Beauty Habits at Midlife: What's Working for Our Tribe | NextTribe

The (Next)Tribe Has Spoken: Here are the Beauty Habits That are Working For Us at Midlife

We asked and the tribe has spoken—and you had some pretty enlightening things to say about what beauty tips are (and aren’t) working for you now. In a survey we posted a couple weeks ago, you loyal readers shared your best beauty habits and other intel—from how many products you’re using to what celebs you look up to as beauty icons (Helen Mirren, Cindy Gallop, Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren—did we mention Helen Mirren?).

A big take-away? We’re not spending a huge amount of time on beauty. About 46 percent of you responded you spend 30 total minutes a day on grooming. And that’s the whole shebang: Combined makeup, hair, skincare for morning and night on a routine day. And while 46 percent of us claim to spend more time on beauty than 20 years ago, some (12 percent, to be exact) are doing less.
