Romantic Essence

Heart in Hand

By: Bennie Hubbard

It runs deeper than oceans, it shines brighter then the stars. It can give you strength and embrace you and cloth you in an aura making you glow, seperating you. It desires you it wishes to live within you and unlock the essence locked and trapped, but it has the key to unlock you and make you blossom like a spring season rose. As angles fly upward so does your spirit when you experience the essence of romance.

A study conducted by both Australian institutes and Umea University in Sweden, covers an estimated 129,000 mothers and 189,000 of their children, the study found that very overweight and obese mothers, had a 61 percent increased risk of exposing their children to asthma by the time they reach the ages of 8-10

"We found that there was a clear increased risk of childhood asthma, medication use and hospitalization with increasing degree of obesity and overweight in mothers in early pregnancy," said lead author Adrian Lowe from the Murdoch Children's Research Institute and University of Melbourne.

Lowe also went on to say: "Obese mothers had a 41 percent increase in the odds compared to normal weight mothers ... those who were a little overweight had 18 percent increased chance."
Lowe explained that maternal obesity increases the child's risk of obesity, which influences the infant's immune system and its responses toward allergies.

"The results suggest that campaigns to reduce obesity prior to conception may have a beneficial effect on childhood asthma," Lowe said.

This study was published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

A new study published in the journal Cancer says that screenings should begin as early as possible, as young as age 25. Genetic mutations BRCA1 and BRCA2 are the focus of a potential problem that may occur later in life.

Daughters of women who took the synthetic estrogen drug DES are at a high risk factor for breast cancer, also even other cancers and problems, reported in the new study. In 1971 the DES drug was discontinued, the ones affected by the drug are at a risk of having up to 12 diseases, reported by the New English Journal of Medicine.

Andres Nugent a participant of the Miami seaquarium annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month observances, was quoted saying, "It's breathtaking. I mean there are no words to express this wonderful event that they provided for us here today. It's something I've wanted to do my entire life and just couldn't afford." Andrea described how incredible the event was and how much she enjoyed it, also pointed out it was something she wanted to do her entire life, "Be a participant at a Breast Cancer Event".

Teenagers of Today Pressured to Sext to Fit in, Study Concluded

Article first published as Teenagers of today pressured to sext to fit in, study concluded on Technorati.

Teen are influenced and pressured to sext, sending explicit pictures of them selves through Text Messages and Picture Messages. Teens today are being pressured to conform to this new generation of explicit activity in an attempt of fitting in and even on a wider scale being persuaded by socialized media of today.

Melbourne University researcher Shelley Walker, interviewed 15 males and 19 females, between the ages of 15-20 to conduct a survey on sexting. All participants had similar stories to share on the topic of sexting. She gave vignettes of the lurid images the interviewees had described, including pictures of nudity and sex acts.

Given support by the federal health department, Shelley Walker said it highlighted the need for young people to have a greater say in how to respond to the phenomenon of sexting.

She said the study drew attention to the potentially pervasive nature of sexting.

The interviewees commented on the overwhelming influence of sexual nature of advertising and the sexual behaviour of adult role models, including those in music videos, where this kind of behavior is encouraged.

There was also an app that could be downloaded to your phone to encourage sexting, which although it promoted safe sex, "does highlight how potentially normalised this behavior has become"

She quoted a 16 year old boys concerns on the problem of sexting and feared it might be everywhere, the young boy said the problem of sexting hasn't been taken seriously.

Another speaker said candid early sex education would not only result in Australian teenagers having their first sexual experience later but also reduce unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections.

Researcher Alan McKee said the more relaxed and open approach to sex education in the Netherlands had delivered a significantly better result for young people, contradicting the grim warnings of child sexualisation voiced in Australia.
Professor McKee, who heads a sexuality development research project at Queensland University of Technology, said the campaign by those claiming early sex education prompts "sexualisation of children" was counterproductive and resulted in Australian teenagers having first sex, on average, 18 months earlier than Dutch teens.

He said there was a significantly more open and relaxed approach to discussion of sexuality by Dutch youth and their parents, where the average age of first sex relationships was 17½ compared with 16 in Australia.

The Netherlands also had a significantly lower rate of sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies among young people.

Professor McKee said early comprehensive sex education did not encourage early sex but did prevent ignorant sex.

King Abdullah Gives Saudi Women the Right to Vote

Election, King Abdullah, Sauidi Arabia, Vote, Women

Author: Bennie Hubbard
Published: September 27, 2011 at 12:18 am

First published on Technorati BY: Bennie Hubbard

Women in Saudi Arabia have welcomed the news they're to be given the right to vote and stand for election.

King Abdullah announced that the women of Saudi Arabia may finally have the right to vote in the elections of 2015 even though they have an election coming this Thursday.

This surprising announcement came in an annual speech before his advisory assembly, or Shura Council. It was made after he consulted with the nation's top religious clerics. He said he refused to marginalize women.

This is a huge leap forward on behalf of the Saudi women who can't currently travel or operate a vehicle without permission. This also gives them the power to become elected officials and take part in the nation's legislative and executive branches.

The King also stated that Saudi women would be appointed to the Shura Council, which was established in 1993 to offer counsel on general policies in the kingdom and to debate economic and social development plans and agreements signed between the kingdom with other nations. The Shura Council is currently headed by an assembly of all males.

Mr. Nice Guy a Turn Off for Women, Study Finds

Article first published as Mr. Nice Guy a Turn Off for Women, Study Finds on Technorati.

Author: Bennie Hubbard
Published: May 24, 2011 at 11:16 pm

No more Mr. Nice guy and bright smiles, For men who desire attraction from the opposite sex, according to a new study from the University of British Columbia. It showed that women find smug, gloomy "bad boys" more attractive than "nice guys."

This new study which was published in the journal Emotion revealed some of the different responses men and women give to certain emotions like happiness, pride and shame based on their sexual attraction or what they consider attractive.

It was once thought that smiling and being pleasant was essential when trying to make a good impression, but the study found that "men and women respond very differently to displays of emotion, including smiles," the author of the study Jessica Tracy, a professor of psychology at the university, said in a written statement.

To conduct the study, more than 1,000 adult participants were asked to rate the sexual attractiveness of hundreds of images of the opposite sex. The images showed people in displays of happiness and cheerfulness (bright smiles), pride (raised head, puffed-up chest), also sadness and shame (lowered head, averted eyes).

Who did the women go for? The study showed they favored guys who looked conceited or glum and depressed. But the guys were most sexually attracted to women who looked happy, and less attracted to those who appeared superior and confident.

Tracy and her co-author, graduate student Alec Beall, said women may have evolved to find proud guys attractive because pride implies status, competence and an ability to provide for a partner and offspring. furthermore previous research has associated smiling with a lack of dominance - which men seem to find attractive in a mate, but not the other way around.

Beall also pointed out in the statement that the people in the study weren't asked to evaluate men on the basis of whether they might make a good mate. "We wanted their gut reactions on carnal, sexual attraction," he said.

Romance Topics - Moms Tend to Add Pounds

Article first published as Having Kids Might Make Young Women Heavier, Less Fit on Technorati.

Author: Bennie Hubbard "Romance Topics"

Study found that younger women who have children are more likely to have health problems, than women who don't have children at all. The study finds that younger women with children consume more saturated fat, sugary beverages and total calories.

Examining data from Project EAT (Eating and Activity in Teens and Young Adults), researchers from the University of Minnesota focused on the link between parental status, dietary intake, physical activity and body mass index (BMI) in 838 women and 682 men with an average age of 25.

While fathers were no heavier than their non-parenting peers, mothers had significantly higher BMIs, and both moms and dads exercised less frequently. But despite their greater intake of fat, sugar and calories, the young mothers also consumed as much fruit, dairy, whole grains and calcium as non-mothers, the study found.

Study author Jerica Berge said these mothers might be assuming more child-care duties than the dads, leading to the weight disparity. The aftereffects of pregnancy might also be a factor, she said.

"Maybe moms are taking on more responsibilities — including cooking the food for the kids, with these high-fat choices," said Berge, an assistant professor of family medicine and community health. "In parenting, there are conflicting demands and tradeoffs. It could [also] be they're too tired at the end of the day and might not want to go to the gym."
The study is published online April 11 in the journal Pediatrics.

Project EAT, a longitudinal population study, followed young participants through three age points between 1998 and 2009, as they progressed into young adulthood.
Participants who became parents between the second and third follow-ups and had a child aged 5 or younger formed the parent group in the study.

Height and weight were self-reported, while a food-frequency questionnaire was used to assess the typical intake of such foods as fruit, dark green and orange vegetables, milk products and sugar-sweetened beverages over the prior year.

Young adults were also asked how many hours in a usual week they spent doing activities ranging from jogging or rollerblading to biking, skiing, dancing or bowling.
The fact that young mothers also consumed a similar amount of healthy foods than non-mothers may suggest they are trying to be good role models for their children, Berge said, although their use of higher-fat foods may stem from having less time to cook.

"I do think the study makes some good points about the struggles of being a young parent and balancing work and family life, and finding the time to plan physical activity," said Jen Brennan, clinical nutrition manager at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. "It's really easy to grab something unhealthy."
Health care professionals have many opportunities to intervene in this dynamic, Berge and Brennan said, because young children typically see pediatricians at least several times a year.

Public health campaigns can also encourage healthy lifestyles among parents to set the stage for their children, they said.
"They already have time to talk about dietary intake and physical activity. There might be an opportunity to throw in, 'how does this work from a family perspective?'" Berge noted.
"Obviously, we need more research before we go off and change everything," she added. "We're not out there to make parents feel guilty about it — it's more for us to step back and ask, how can we support them?"

Young women have to focus on staying healthy after giving birth and not allow stress and anxiety stop them from living a brighter healthier life. We all know children have lots of energy, learn to use it to your advantage, go running with your kids, jump rope, roller blade. It seems like a lot of the simple things that can keep you healthier are some of the things that can benefit you and your child. Be creative and have fun most of all.

Romance Topics - Women are More Likely Than Men to Have Romantic Regrets

Broken hearted, Love, Marriage, Relationship, Romance

Article first published as Women are More Likely Than Men to Have Romantic Regrets on Technorati.

Author: Bennie Hubbard "Romance Topics"
Published: March 24, 2011 at 4:39 pm

According to a research survey conducted by Neal Roese, professor of marketing at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Business, Women are more likely than man to have regrets about their romantic life. In the field of romantic relationships, everyone seems to have made decisions they had come to regret, says Neal Roese.

In the survey, about 370 adults across the US, between the ages of 20 and 80 years old, were asked to tell what they felt was some of the biggest issues in their past they regretted. The survey which was conducted over the phone concluded that about 44 percent of women listed romance, however only 19 percent of the men mentioned it, Roese said in the study published in journal Social Psychological and Personality Science. Much of the romantic regrets were about "the one that got away, a missed opportunity or someone you knew in college with whom it didn't quite work out," he said.

The second-most common regret centered on family issues, such as a desire to have been kinder to a loved one. Others regretted not attending college or not divorcing sooner, or choosing material items over a life's passion.
Roese said many of those who took part in the survey were eager to do so, and some even became tearful as they spoke.

This survey directly points out how women, are most effected by their past romance. Making them wish and wonder how they may have fixed the burned out flame “old romance”. Furthermore, it points out that we all have regrets whether it be romance or not attending college. I think the reason more women regret their past romance, is simply because of our society and the environment in which we live in.

Women are much more emotionally attached then men are, they care about finding the right person and if they fall short of this goal they will have regrets about it and long for it in the future, thinking they may have been better off with someone from a past relationship. When it comes to admitting regrets, romance happens to be the most common source of nagging anxiety, particularly among women, according to an American researcher.

Romance Topics - How do you know if that special someone really loves you

advice, Love, Marriage, Relationships, Romance, Sex

I have compiled a list of thing you could do to investigate if that special someone really loves you and steps to improve your relationship.

1. See if they show affection

2. See if they pay attention to you with genuine concern

3. See if they tell you they love you

4. Read body language – It’s a way of knowing peoples true intention and how they really want to express themselves "Hidden Motives"

5. Examine if they spent enough time with you, and if not figure out why and what you could do to fix the problem

6. This reflex directly with step 5 the key element is "Communication", be sure to reach out to that special person in your life, learn as much as you can, ask them how their day was, ask them if they need anything, be genuinely concerned and act on it. Show them you care and not only tell them, because words become void without action to back it up.

7. Finally just simply spend more time together to build your connection to each other, like going out to a movie, or maybe just a walk down the street could make a impact on your relationship, be creative, find what you have in common and use that information to your advantage.

Thank You,
