Salma Hayek Advocates Against Domestic Violence

Posted by Tony Graf On November - 11 - 2014ADD COMMENTS

Salma Hayek is raising awareness among people about domestic violence these days. The 48-year-old Mexican actress was a speaker at TheWrap Power Women’s Breakfast in Beverly Hills, California and talked emotionally about her contributions on behalf of women in front of Hollywood female executives.

Salma Hayek

Hayek wore a sleeveless LBD styled with a matching cardigan and shoulder bag. The mother-of-one displayed her slim physique in a knee-length black dress with a pair of strappy high heels. Salma Hayek styled her dark locks in layered curls and kept her flawless complexion looking natural. Known for her smouldering looks and enviable shape, Salma urged others to prevent domestic violence. ‘If you want to stop violence in the world it has to start in the home,’ she said. ‘If we can win this war, we can win the war against violence.’

Salma Hayek Advocates Against Domestic Violence

Salma argued that she didn’t want her status as a movie star to hinder the work of others. ‘I was so passionate about it that to me it was a part of me that had nothing to do with being a celebrity.’ She further added, ‘Sometimes you do more awareness by being aware of yourself and living in the presence of this awareness than by talking until you die. I don’t come from a background of domestic violence, but I think it’s incredibly important.’

Recently, Salma Hayek produced a documentary Humaira: The Game Changer on Pakistani education advocate Humaira Bachal, at the Women’s Forum Global Meeting in Deauville, France. The conference that was attended by several female leaders in the fields of business, science, education and human rights, supported the mission to strengthen “women influence throughout the globe”.

Manchester United Committed To Youth Development

Posted by Kelley Halter On September - 26 - 2014ADD COMMENTS

Ryan Giggs has insisted that the commitment of Manchester United to Youth Development remains strong. The club has a proud record of having a minimum of one homegrown player in every match day squad but the recent sale of academy graduate Danny Welbeck and hefty spending of the summer transfer window has led people to believe that things may be changing now.

Ryan Giggs Manchester United

Giggs, one of United’s greatest youth products, said ‘The club will never change. The history of the club is to play exciting football, always give youngsters a chance, keep to the traditions of the club.

‘Okay Danny has left, which is obviously disappointing because you never want to see a homegrown player leave, but this is a manager who gave Seedorf his chance, Kluivert his chance, Iniesta his chance, Xavi, Thomas Muller – he has got a track record of giving youngsters a chance. Giggs added, ‘Players will leave but we have got to make sure young players come through because United fans demand it. I want to see young players come through.

‘That has been (the case) right through the history of Manchester United and we never want to lose that.’

Over the summer, United spent more than £150million in a major squad rebuild after last season’s disappointments.

Nicky Butt, another former youth star, said ‘I think all clubs are changing. He added, ‘I think Man Utd was probably one of the last outstanding ones that had the connection between youth and the first team – to be fair to Liverpool now they are doing that very well – but we are still trying to do that.’

Children Can Understand Sarcasm With Empathy

Posted by Kelley Halter On August - 29 - 2014ADD COMMENTS

According to a new study in the open-access journal Frontiers in Psychology, it is easier for children to recognize sarcasm with greater empathy skills.

Children Can Understand Sarcasm With Empathy

Sarcastic language can be difficult to understand for children and they usually begin to recognize sarcasm between ages 6 and 8. However, some children may take long to start understanding sarcasm, with detection improving even through adolescence.

In a new study, Penny Pexman, Juanita Whalen, and Andrew Nicholson looked at empathy specifically as they believed that children must be able to adopt the perspective of the speaker — to understand the speaker’s attitude and emotions in order to understand sarcasm. The researchers said empathy was strongly associated with several aspects of irony comprehension and processing that suggested emotional reasoning abilities are important to development of irony comprehension.

“Sarcastic language, especially in unfamiliar forms, is a real challenge for most children,” explains Prof. Pexman. “Even when children did not recognize a remark as sarcastic, there was evidence in their reactions that the children with stronger empathy skills were sensitive to the speaker’s intent.”

“This study helps us understand why some children deal better with this challenge than others and provides new insights about development of this complex aspect of emotion recognition,” adds Pexman. “It also puts us in a better position to help children who are struggling with this challenge.”

Stem Cells Aid Muscle Repair After Resistance Exercise

Posted by Kelley Halter On August - 13 - 2014Comments Off

A new study in mice has disclosed that mesenchymal (mezz-EN-chem-uhl) stem cells (MSCs) are helpful for rejuvenating skeletal muscle after resistance exercise.

Stem Cells Aid Muscle Repair After Resistance Exercise

During this study, researchers were able to improve the rate of repair and the growth and strength of mouse leg muscles by injecting MSCs prior to several bouts of eccentric exercise.

University of Illinois kinesiology and community health professor Marni Boppart, who led the research, said the findings, described in the journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, could one day lead to new interventions to combat age-related declines in muscle structure and function.

“We have an interest in understanding how muscle responds to exercise, and which cellular components contribute to the increase in repair and growth with exercise,” she said. “But the primary goal of our lab really is to have some understanding of how we can rejuvenate the aged muscle to prevent the physical disability that occurs with age, and to increase quality of life in general as well.”

According to the new study, MSCs also excrete growth factors and stimulate muscle precursor cells, called satellite cells. “Satellite cells are a primary target for the rejuvenation of aged muscle, since activation becomes increasingly impaired and recovery from injury is delayed over the lifespan,” Boppart said. “MSC transplantation may provide a viable solution to reawaken the aged satellite cell.”

“Skeletal muscle is a very complex organ that is highly innervated and vascularized, and unfortunately all of these different tissues become dysfunctional with age,” Boppart said. “Therefore, development of an intervention that can heal multiple tissues is ideally required to reverse age-related declines in muscle mass and function. MSCs, because of their ability to repair a variety of different tissue types, are perfectly suited for this task.”

If you play in a band, then you know how expensive some of the items are that you will need. Whether it’s guitars or microphones, you can spend a small fortune simply getting the band ready to practice the first song. You can purchase used bass amps for sale in order to save a little bit of money. These amps are just as good as the ones that you would purchase new, but it’s a good idea to check them out before you buy.

used bass amps for sale

When you purchase used amps, you often get all of the cords and accessories that you will need for them as well. There are different sizes to choose from, and you can often get a better deal if you purchase more than one amp from the company. There are some companies that offer discounts on the amp if you purchase a musical instrument, such as a guitar. Buying a used amp is a good option if you don’t plan to play for a long period of time. It can be something that is used while a child is in high school or college. They can also be used until enough money is saved to get a new amp.

Teenagers Warned Of Health Risks With Supplements

Posted by Kelley Halter On July - 22 - 2014Comments Off

A new study has revealed that junior athletes, some as young as 12, are making use of performance enhancing drugs.

teenagers warned of health risks with supplements

Researchers from the University of Canberra and Queensland’s Griffith University interviewed 900 athletes aged between 12 and 17. They found that around 4 percent of those interviewed were using performance enhancing drugs for improving their image or performance.

Health experts say supplements could be harmful and lead toward illegal and dangerous substances.

“They think it’s going to burn away the fat, produce muscle overnight and that they’re going to be very attractive to girls and unbeatable on the sports field,” nutritionist Jenny O’Dea said. “It is a big myth.”

“They are fancy names for things like milk powder, dried milk powder, dried whey powder which is milk, different types of sugar, different types of flavoring, perhaps some dried egg,” Ms O’Dea said.

“We know high protein diets do run the risk of finding more calcium in our urine, which does affect our bone mass,” Sports Medicine Australia Queensland branch president Julie Gilbert said.

“We also know high protein diets can have an effect on our kidneys, so I don’t think they are things we want to muck around with our teenagers who are still growing and developing.”

“The majority of young people I am seeing using these products have not completed their growth spurt,” Drug and alcohol educator Paul Dillon said.

“Why in heavens would a parent think it is appropriate to provide them with protein powders, amino acids, whey powder, whatever it is to make them bigger when really they haven’t gone through their growth spurt at that stage?”

Ramaphosa To Be Joined By Prominent Leaders

Posted by Kelley Halter On June - 21 - 2014Comments Off

Cyril Ramaphosa, the Deputy President of the Republic of South Africa, will address the main Youth Day celebrations in Galeshewe just outside Kimberley in the Northern Cape.

Cyril Ramaphosa and Jacob Zuma

Ramaphosa will be accompanied by Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe and his deputy Buti Manamela as well as Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa. This gathering is expected to be addressed by the Chairperson of the National Youth Development Agency Yershin Pillay. The African nation has made dramatic progress in youth development since 1994 with the establishment of the National Youth Commission in 1996 and the Umsombomvu Youth Fund in 2001. The important mandates of these institutions included implementing targeted youth development programs and mainstreaming of cross-cutting youth development issues.

However, the country is facing some issues with the 20 Year Review showing that young people account for almost 70% of the unemployed population. A big majority of youth not in an educational institution are vulnerable to crime and substance abuse. This year government celebrates Youth Day under the theme ” Youth Moving South Africa Forward” with all this in mind.

Ramaphosa remarked youth unemployment is probably the single most critical challenge facing South Africa today.

President Jacob Zuma said economic transformation must and will take centre-stage during this new term of government and it is important that youth must be at the centre of that economic transformation.
