Weight Frustrations}

March 29, 2017

Submitted by: Rhema Milton

It is normal to be frustrated about your weight. It is also normal to voice your frustrations about your weight. Venting frustrations must be done in a health way. This includes talking positively about your weight frustrations and speaking to those that will support a healthy conversation.

I remember being a size 12-14 in high school. From my freshmen year to I guess my junior year of high school I thought I was fat. I didnt think I was over weight, I thought I was fat. My thighs have always touched each other and I had a small pooch in my stomach. This is what I considered fat. I can admit that I was called a few names jokingly when I was younger, but I dont know where it kicked in that I thought I was fat. Fast forward senior year and freshmen year of college, I went from thinking I was fine to knowing I was fine. I dont really know what happened. I just remembering having to shop for clothes for college and I bought clothes that were comfortable and tennis shoes. When I made new friends in college they brought it to my attention that I could wear certain clothes and look really good. I remember those days. Unfortunately I did what so many other college freshmen in America do their first year of college, I gained weight. I gained so much weight that my grandmother accused me of being pregnant.

Over the next 20 plus years I would gain over 200 pounds. Yes, I now top the scale at a whopping 364 pounds. Instead of that small pooch I had, I now have a sack of fat that hangs from my belly. When I try to put my body composition into words, it baffles me. I can literally pick up my hanging stomach and move it up and down or put my pants under the belly fat or put the belly fat in my pants. Sometimes I have to lean against the wall to put on panties or socks. It is really difficult to paint or clip my toenails because the fat is in the way when I try to bend and reach my foot. I often wonder how did I let myself get so big. I feel that I cant keep asking myself this questions. I feel that I need to be about losing the weight and now. It is has been four days since I turned 41. Everything inside of me says stop thinking about this and be like Nike and just do it and then I hear another small voice. The small voices says we should talk about why you are so overweight.

I realized a few years after college that I would binge eat and whenever I was upset, frustrated, mad, happy, confused or sad I would over eat. I lived by myself so many people didnt see it but they could see the weight. When I went home for the holidays it was the time to over eat. I couldnt hide the overeating for long. Family members starting commenting about my weight. They would say how big I was getting. My mom talked with me in a different way. I could see things in her face and hear nice comments about my appear and every once in a while she would sit me down to talk about my large portions or how often I ate. She even tried to talk with me about depression. I would just blow her off because she wanted to get to the issues of weight gain and she tried to approach me in a positive and supportive manner. I was not ready and so I walked away and I kept walking away every time she tried. At the age of 41 and with the hope of have babies in the near future, I am seeking out people like my mom that will talk kindly, yet firmly about why I am inhaling food to cope with life. I have starting on this positive journey of having a healthy conversation about my weight frustrations. I hope if you need this you will start to take steps.

Dresden city council wants DNA matching for doggy-doo

March 29, 2017

Thursday, March 31, 2005

Councillors at Dresden City Council in Germany would like to match doggy-doo left by pets on the sidewalk and in parks, against a DNA database storing profiles for all of the city’s 12,000 registered dogs. Karl Jobig, a Christian Democrat politician in Dresden, was surprised when his proposal received a majority vote.

“In this way, Dresden will once again be one of the cleanest cities in Germany,” Roland Putzger, the leader of the local council, told The Guardian.

DNA from registered dogs would be collected from blood or saliva for the “genetic fingerprinting” service.

Saxony’s data protection commissioner, Andreas Schurig, ruled that dogs had no rights over their data and could not object to the compulsory tests.

The proposal will be binding if the council passes it by majority vote in May.

Ingrid Newkirk, co-founder of PETA, on animal rights and the film about her life

March 29, 2017

Tuesday, November 20, 2007

Last night HBO premiered I Am An Animal: The Story of Ingrid Newkirk and PETA. Since its inception, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has made headlines and raised eyebrows. They are almost single-handedly responsible for the movement against animal testing and their efforts have raised the suffering animals experience in a broad spectrum of consumer goods production and food processing into a cause célèbre.

PETA first made headlines in the Silver Spring monkeys case, when Alex Pacheco, then a student at George Washington University, volunteered at a lab run by Edward Taub, who was testing neuroplasticity on live monkeys. Taub had cut sensory ganglia that supplied nerves to the monkeys’ fingers, hands, arms, legs; with some of the monkeys, he had severed the entire spinal column. He then tried to force the monkeys to use their limbs by exposing them to persistent electric shock, prolonged physical restraint of an intact arm or leg, and by withholding food. With footage obtained by Pacheco, Taub was convicted of six counts of animal cruelty—largely as a result of the monkeys’ reported living conditions—making them “the most famous lab animals in history,” according to psychiatrist Norman Doidge. Taub’s conviction was later overturned on appeal and the monkeys were eventually euthanized.

PETA was born.

In the subsequent decades they ran the Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty against Europe’s largest animal-testing facility (footage showed staff punching beagle puppies in the face, shouting at them, and simulating sex acts while taking blood samples); against Covance, the United State’s largest importer of primates for laboratory research (evidence was found that they were dissecting monkeys at its Vienna, Virginia laboratory while the animals were still alive); against General Motors for using live animals in crash tests; against L’Oreal for testing cosmetics on animals; against the use of fur for fashion and fur farms; against Smithfield Foods for torturing Butterball turkeys; and against fast food chains, most recently against KFC through the launch of their website kentuckyfriedcruelty.com.

They have launched campaigns and engaged in stunts that are designed for media attention. In 1996, PETA activists famously threw a dead raccoon onto the table of Anna Wintour, the fur supporting editor-in-chief of Vogue, while she was dining at the Four Seasons in New York, and left bloody paw prints and the words “Fur Hag” on the steps of her home. They ran a campaign entitled Holocaust on your Plate that consisted of eight 60-square-foot panels, each juxtaposing images of the Holocaust with images of factory farming. Photographs of concentration camp inmates in wooden bunks were shown next to photographs of caged chickens, and piled bodies of Holocaust victims next to a pile of pig carcasses. In 2003 in Jerusalem, after a donkey was loaded with explosives and blown up in a terrorist attack, Newkirk sent a letter to then-PLO leader Yasser Arafat to keep animals out of the conflict. As the film shows, they also took over Jean-Paul Gaultier‘s Paris boutique and smeared blood on the windows to protest his use of fur in his clothing.

The group’s tactics have been criticized. Co-founder Pacheco, who is no longer with PETA, called them “stupid human tricks.” Some feminists criticize their campaigns featuring the Lettuce Ladies and “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” ads as objectifying women. Of their Holocaust on a Plate campaign, Anti-Defamation League Chairman Abraham Foxman said “The effort by PETA to compare the deliberate systematic murder of millions of Jews to the issue of animal rights is abhorrent.” (Newkirk later issued an apology for any hurt it caused). Perhaps most controversial amongst politicians, the public and even other animal rights organizations is PETA’s refusal to condemn the actions of the Animal Liberation Front, which in January 2005 was named as a terrorist threat by the United States Department of Homeland Security.

David Shankbone attended the pre-release screening of I Am An Animal at HBO’s offices in New York City on November 12, and the following day he sat down with Ingrid Newkirk to discuss her perspectives on PETA, animal rights, her responses to criticism lodged against her and to discuss her on-going life’s work to raise human awareness of animal suffering. Below is her interview.

South Korea and US hold joint exercises; North does not retaliate

March 23, 2017

Monday, December 20, 2010

South Korea held joint military exercises with the United States on Monday on Yeonpyeong Island, which was shelled by North Korea last month. North Korea had warned of an “unpredictable self-defensive blow” if the exercises went ahead, but the country did not retaliate, saying it was “not worth” attacking, despite “reckless provocations” from the South.

The United Nations Security Council held an eight hour emergency meeting as tensions escalated on the Korean peninsula before the exercises began. The controversial issue divided opinion within the council; China and Russia both asked South Korea to call off the exercise over fears it could start a war on the peninsula, but the US supported its ally, saying the drills were “fully consistent with South Korea’s legal right to self defence”.

Officials in Pyongyang had threatened a “catastrophe” if the exercises, taking place on an island close to the border with the North, went ahead. They did not attack the South, however; state media quoted a North Korean military official as saying: “The world should properly know who is the true champion of peace and who is the real provocateur of a war.” South Korea had said they would retaliate “immediately and sternly” to any attack from the North.

South Korean officials reported the drills, involving K9 Thunder guns and F-15K fighter aircraft, lasted less than two hours. During the drill, civilians on Yeonpyeong Island moved into air-raid shelters, which, the BBC reported, was part of the planned procedure for the exercise.

Yeonpyeong Island, which, although controlled by the South, is visible from the North, and came under attack from the North last month. Nearly 200 rounds of artillery were fired at the island in the attack; four people were killed and another 14 were injured in the attack. At the time of the attack, the South had been holding annual military exercises with the US. Troops on the island returned fire, firing nearly 80 rounds of artillery, but no damage was reported on the North Korean side.

Paul Keller

When updating salon equipment or starting a new business you have to decide which financing option is best for you.

Here at Keller International we get asked all the time about the pros and cons of buying and leasing salon equipment.

What are the advantages to leasing vs. a bank loan?

Who do I turn to for leasing equipment and how does it work?

Leasing Salon Equipment is Easy and Affordable

Leasing is not a new option for salon businesses; in fact a lot of salons lease their equipment instead of financing it through a bank. The advantages of leasing are many. Leasing is quicker and easier for most business owners who have limited capital or who need equipment that must be upgraded every few years, while purchasing equipment can be a better option for established businesses or for equipment that has a long usable life.

Advantages of Leasing Salon Equipment

The primary advantage of leasing salon equipment is that it allows you to acquire salon furniture and supplies with minimal initial expenditures and allows you to finance 100% of the equipment costs, shipping costs, taxes, etc. This frees up your cash and other credit for other purposes.

Another financial benefit of leasing salon equipment is that your lease payments can usually be tax deductible, thus reducing the net cost of your lease. In addition, leases are usually easier to obtain. The lease applications are just one page and approvals are usually within 24 hours.

Leases also have more flexible terms and payment structures than bank loans for buying salon equipment. This can be a significant advantage if you have bad credit or need to negotiate a longer payment plan to lower your costs.

We at Keller International, work with several financing institutions that can finance all your salon equipment needs. Highland Financial Group, Quest Resources, Bank of Cardiff and Beneficial Capital are a few that offer great service and an understanding of the salon and barbershop community.
