Jillian Michaels tackless comments

I like watching Biggest loser not because I want to know some techniques of how to lose weight but because I admired the those participant who go through vigorous training from Bob and Jillian just to attain their goal and that is to loss weight and be healthy. I saw the first season of Biggest loser and I’ve seen how tough the trainer Jillian to all the contestant. I just read a news at yahoo where Jillian Michaels Biggest Loser Trainer getting some interesting feedback for comments she made in Women’s Health magazine about the reasons she plans to adopt, rather than give birth to, children.

“I’m going to adopt. I can’t handle doing that to my body,” Michaels told the magazine. “Also, when you rescue something, it’s like rescuing a part of yourself.”

It’s not surprising to hear a tackless comment coming from the person who make a living through her perfect body shape and expertise in getting into shape. A therapist/psychologist stated that “She is teaching people about body image and self-esteem” Dr. Leslie said, “Women have children all the time and get right back in shape, particularly if they exercise. If this is how she truly feels, she should seek counsel before coaching others on issues of body image.” However she should watch her mouth and be more sympathetic to lots of women since her job is to coach on how to be healthy. This comments will lead to any major spike in adoption or a drop in pregnancy rates, but some experts are wondering how the comments of a high-profile fitness expert might be received.

Racial Discrimination Comment at Walmart

Few days ago I read from yahoo news about this news of some people in Walmart NJ made a disturbing discrimination comment or announcement like “Attention, Walmart customers: All black people, leave the store now” which alarmed and put hatred to some people who heard such announcement. They asked for an apology from Walmart at the same time investigating who did such disturbing remarks. Now I read at yahoo news some updates from that news arresting a 16-year-old customer as charged with making a racially intimidating comment over an intercom.

Police said the boy, whose name is not being released because he is a juvenile, went on the intercom at Walmart’s Washington Township store Sunday evening and calmly announced: “Attention, Walmart customers: All black people, leave the store now.”

This extremely disturbing event is not really good and not funny either. Im glad they got the boy and I’m sure they will make some counselling of that kid. If you want to read the rest of the news go here.

Pancit or ‘”pansit”‘ is the term for noodles in Filipino cuisine. Noodles were introduced into the Philippines by the Chinese and have since been adopted into local cuisine.

Nancy Reyes Lumen of the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism writes that according to food lore handed down from the Chinese, noodles should be eaten on one’s birthday. They are therefore commonly served at birthday celebrations and Chinese restaurants in the Philippines often have “birthday noodles” listed on their menus. However, she warns that since “noodles represent long life and good health; they must not be cut short so as not to corrupt the symbolism.
