A real diet drug possibly coming soon!

So would you take a drug that was held off a year ago because of its side effects? But now is a possible FDA approved go! Well, this article I found in Yahoo news, tells all. The new drug Qnexa, weight loss pill with a appetite suppressant and a anti-convulsant with the well known drug phentermine. This drug also has a history of clearing up blood pressure issues. But has the defects of causing birth effects. But the catch is in order to get this drug you have to be calculated to a 30 or higher BMI to receive it.
My overall feeling with this could be hand in hand, just because I understand weight issue is a big demand and is a epidemic right now with obesity. But then the health risk as well become a problem when taking it. But if you die because you were out of shape and or die because taking the medicine, I would rather die trying, wouldn't you?
We can fix obesity, by either exercising or trying a new pill, but something has to change somewhere in the US lifestyles. This pill could be a positive change or it couldn't. But having more that 4500 people try it and lose almost 10percent of their body fat is amazing.

Man has to apologize to exwife on facebook or go to jail!

In the article/video I have watched on Yahoo, brings up a good call! With social media becoming one of our biggest entertainment and life online, this man was court ordered to write an apology to his ex wife for thirty days or go to jail in Cincinnati. The man chose to do the apology but was just wanting to be able to see his son and be able to speak for himself and to have others feel his opinion or ignore it.
My opinion of the incident is very hard. I have mixed feelings of both ends. Me I am a social media freak, I am on FB more than I can count on my fingers a day. It is fun to put my feelings and look at everyone's FB as well. But then there is a stopping point, especially talking about your sons mother should be unacceptable.
The reason I react this way is because I have three boys and if I found out from someone that my husband was talking horrible about me while we were divorce, I would be horrified, just for the fact that he is my son's father and he should be showing them the respect towards me that he would want from them. When they see their father act like this, they follow into footsteps and do the same. But I do understand the fact that freedom of speech is a big issue as well on social media sites, but sometimes some things should be offensive.
My conclusion to the end of this is very simple. The man had a easy fix, while being able to fix the problem with the apology for thirty days or go to jail. And he chose the right thing to do, especially showing his boy that is ok to apologize. So he got what he wrote!

9 Year old girl dies from running for 3 miles...

The paragraph that I read from Yahoo!, was a very sad story. Its about a girl that was forced to run for three hours straight with no rest, after being punished from her grandma and step-mother, for eating candy bar and lying about it. The result ended up the young girl had a seizure and was rushed to a childrens hospital where she later died. The two step-mother and grandmother are being held at a Detention Center in Alabama with a $500,000 cash bond.
My first emotional response to this is still the same but disgusted. This is horrendous! Who does this to a young child for stealing candy? Really candy? I hope both of the adults are punished to murder. I don't care if it was a accident or not. Every angle of this is wrong, I understand punishment should have happened if the young girl died. But not to this extent.
The reason I acted this way is because, a nine year old child is super young and fragile. To press so much exertion and stress onto a childs little heart is just very sad. I have a eight year old son, I could never imagine making him run for three hours, let alone 10minutes for a simple situation. Go to his room for three hours sounds more like it. But running?  Cruel and shameful!
This story caught my eye just for the pure fact of sadness. I hope these two women are punished with some kind of murder charge. Sometimes I think some people have no heart or life. And that is very sad. I hope some people open there eyes and see what is going on with young children and how sickening and selfish they are. They are just babies at this age keep em young while they are!!!

Bus drivers kill?

According to the article I read on Yahoo news! Bus drivers do try to kill. How scary? In England, the two were in a heated argument at a stop light and the bicyclist was in the way of a bus driver and the bus driver swerves into the way of the bicyclist and purposely hits him with the bus. The bicyclist father of two is fine, had a fractured leg but will be OK. The bus driver was sentenced to jail time for 17mths.
My honest opinion, is road rage always gets the best of you. I think its wrong on the bus drivers fault. But I do not know what was said between the two at the stop light.
I would say that its not fair that the bus driver was only sentenced to jail less than 2 years, he had a bus full of people besides also trying to hurt the bicyclist which is even more scary. These anger held people get away with things so simply they tend to HURT everyone around them the second time because it was not that great of risk the first.
In conclusion, the bus driver and bicyclist should have waited till after they were driving to take their stupid fight else where even though I don't think any kind of physical contact is a good ending. But when you are out riding your bike, maybe you should wear your helmet!


This news journal at Yahoo News! was very interesting. It included a56year old male student attending Oakland University. The student had a assignment with what he said had no restrictions to the essay, but the student wrote about his "hot teacher"! He proclaims he was writing off a hit song that was performed in 1984 called "Hot for Teacher". Supposedly, this was not the first incident, there had been several incidents where he had been writing about sexual things in his journals. Mr. Corlett (student) feels like his first amendment was violated, freedom of speech. The university would not comment on Mr. Corlett's case because it would be talking about a students file which is illegal.
My feelings towards this issue are both in the wrong and right. I keep going back and forth. On many different aspects of the story. I tend to see me leaning toward both sides. This situation is a very hard one to say "yes" this is the right one or "no" its not.
 My personal opinion is I do understand Mr. Corlett's personal testimony of freedom of speech, but where I go wrong is talking about a teacher sexually is VERY wrong to me, no matter what age. This is giving everyone the wrong ideal all together. But kicking him off campus? Not sure. I would want to see what kind of "sexual" content he wrote to assume if it was agressive or not. But again, about a teacher? Not right. I guess I am saying, he knows he had a freedom of speech, but why he did not act on it the right way is going to keep everyone going.
My conclusion to this paragraph is watch what you write! Always make sure your audience is not going to be offended or hurt. And think with your brain. Everyone is watching and you are what you write.

What are you eating? GROSS!!!

This story is one of a kind, and disgusting! It caught my eye at Yahoo. These amazing ingredients in every day food are breath taking. Take a look at you box of food that you have sitting in front of you, do you see human hair? Nope did not think so! But I am sure you have seen L-cysteine,(this is the scientific word for human hair and duck feathers). Yes, I am serious. Salad dressing, has a ingredient they use to put in PAINT.But the number one, get ready, canned mushrooms, FDA approves 74 mites (maggots) in a 3.5 oz can. Oh gosh, this is just a few. Lets be more cautious and look up some of those weird looking words on the back of your ingredient box, they may surprise you, or maybe make you throw up!
So my overall thoughts on this story was very shocking. Before reading it, I just thought maybe it would be very little things you know like bat poop or something but maggots? Seriously? And as well as the salad dressing, I about lost my dinner. I think this is horrible and discriminating.
You are now wondering why do i feel like this? Well think of it this way, one of the other bad foods, was jelly beans, all of that dye they put in them, causes brain-cell toxicity and proven to start ADHD symptoms. I have children, now I am freaking out. Its like I am causing them the pain by making them eat this. I am going to be completely honest, I would never have thought anyone, scientist or anyone would let us eat this stuff??
My conclusion is going to be short and sweet. DO NOT EAT anything unless reading the label, for your benefits or family if that! I am very vulnerable to things and I don't read between the lines, but guess what the girl is going to be doing? Yep, READING A LOT more!!! I mean if we are feeding ourselves human hair and maggots, whats next? Being crash dummies for cars? Come on....

Is a cupcake worth $50,000?

Is a cupcake worth $50,000 dollars? This article I found on yahoo news is a little different from the rest of my articles. This one is a special one because valentines day is around the corner.
How would you like to be proposed to or get the special valentines day with an amazing cupcake that we all love but what else would be better? Yes a girls best friend. Instead of cherry topped, diamond topped! A chef goes well beyond his duty. But it does not stop there either! Pizza Hut caters say they will add a diamond for 10,000.
This is a awesome idea! A girls two favorite things, sweets and diamonds. A man can never go wrong with a proposal like that! I am shock as well that other restaurant chains are going as well to the extra mile. As pizza hut or private restaurants. Do I think its to much or over board? No way. If someone is will to pay this much to make a woman happy and has the money to do this, do it. Special treats always go the longest way. Trust me.

I can vow on how special a proposal is. My husband put my wedding ring on my 1mths old pacifier holder and said "Oh man, Britin stinks, take him!" and then got down on one knee. My enhancement was my son, which made it perfect.  I as well can see it becoming a problem as well, a man proposed to a lady by putting her wedding ring in here frosty and she eats it!! A few xrays and sono's later they find it. And I know that sounds horrific, but is it something she will forget? Nope. Thats why I love stuff that is always remembered in the heart especially occasions like that.

My conclusion, adheres that I love people coming up with the idea of rings in cupcakes, and maybe a pizza too. This little treat is a few bucks but last forever if its true love. This article put a smile on my face and hopes everyone has a Happy Valentines day! And, Valentines day is coming up, so do not forget to get your special someone a gift that she will not forget or want to eat!

Highschool girls team get punished for wearing pink in game!

The article I found on Yahoo! news was very interesting when I started reading over it.
The paragraph is about a girls highschool team in Nebraska, starts a fundraising opportunity and wears pink jerseys to raise money. The opposing team's coach find that this is wrong because they suppose to wear white because they were the home team, which led to them getting the ball first. But the officials take the game very seriously and gave the girls wearing pink jerseys a technical and making them lose.
My feelings toward this news article is OUTRAGEOUS. Really, thought think about it? How inconsiderate for another teams coach to be so upset that he wanted a team that was raising a great cause for the community but nationally as well, pulls the technical card out? Was he really that scared he was going to lose? Or did he not like the attention they were getting? I just don't understand how someone can jump so low. Especially, a representative of a high school.
The athletic director of Burke Highschool, made the comment "I'm glad we could at least be the event site where we could get that done and I am glad we were able to do that."Raising money for charity is just a part of life and I think it was opportunity for us to do that." This is a amazing comment, and he is exactly right. Not every school gets the opportunity to do this. And the opponents should be happy for this, just because they are as well playing for a team fighting for the cause. I would feel tremendous respect for the other team.
In my conclusion, I am very overwhelmed by the acts of other people and the way they in sports activities. We as adults and parents are supposed to show some what of respect and liability opportunities, not point fingers and make judgements. Where does this get our future adults? No where, the same place we are now. If you ever have the chance to make something right like these girls do it! Winner or losers, in my heart they are winners because they fought for a cause that is a never ending battle! GO LADY BURKE!

Dog bites News Anchor!

This story caught my eye right off. The news article I found on yahoo news, , was very interesting to me because you see a lot of dogs biting, but not a news anchor for that fact! This story is based in Denver, Colorado where a pit bull was found in a pond helplessly trying to survive from drowning and a rescue fire fighter saves him. The owner, dog and fire fighter were invited to a local news show to show off! But instead the strained dog bites the news anchor! In this article you will see the events that took place and who was blamed for this horrific matter.

My emotional reaction to this was OH MY LORD!!! How can they let a deranged dog on TV? Then I kept reading on and seen the physical drainage and stress on him, I felt horrible for the dog for someone even let this happen! Then I kept reading and seen where they are blaming the anchor because she touched the dog and was playing nice to it. I am confused? Why would you blame someone that was trying to  portray its greatness to the community. Then they as well are prosecuting the owner for not having a good hand on the leash? If anything I think the dog was the last to blame but no one else should be blamed as well it was accident and something that could of been prevented if everyone took the right precautions!

The reaction you get from me is simple. I stated earlier that this could have been prevented by simply having common since to me! The dog was in some kind of distress. And was put in front of a TV out of the ordinary and was supposed to act good. Any of you have kids? Well if you do. You know my point exactly! They are gonna go crazy!

Concluding this news brief, I feel that we should treat animals as humans and not think they wont become very scared in news shows. just like a little kid or anyone. If we all put our head together, maybe next time we will think about putting animals on TV and the reason why! This hurt someone severly and could of lead to death! Lets not let it happen again!
