Is This Question Even Fair?

Is this even a fair question?

Is abortion an acceptable option for rape victims and women whose lives are in danger?

I had to skip that question. This is a tricky question. For example, Normally, I’d say no, that it’s not an acceptable option. The mother could be destroying the next great inventor, the next great cure, the next great leader.

However, we have to step back sometimes and look at the alternatives. If the Mother is really in trouble and her life is in danger, then sure, abort and have a C-Section, especially if the child is going to be born prematurely.

In that situation, you’re better off having an abortion, otherwise, the child might have to live with all kinds of conditions, or even be retarded. That’s something the Mother will have to decide. Would she be ok with the child living like that?

But, destroying one life for another, just so that person doesn’t have to live with the feeling or remember the rape or the victimization, that’s just as cruel and barbaric as a tyrant leader.

At least they woman can live a good live, knowing that they gave the child the best chance they could have. If you don’t want the child, don’t destroy it, adopt it out. Who knows, after carrying it for so long, she might even change her mind.

What is your favorite Food?

Everyone has their favorite Food.  What’s yours?  I happen to have a wide variety of food taste.

My food genres include:

Mexican
Italian
French
British
Irish
German
Japanese
Chinese
Korean
Russian
American
Canadian
Dutch
Norwegian
Swiss

I love foods from all over the world.  My philosophy?  “Variety is the Spice of Life.”  Literally.  But what about my all time favorites?

My favorite food of all time has to be Pizza.

Delicious Pizza

As far as Dessert goes?  Cheesecake hands down.

Delicious Cheesecake

There are downsides to having a large amount of food that you like though.  Sometimes, you don’t know what you want to eat.  Ever had that happen?  You’re out and about and it’s lunch time, you happen to be with someone and they ask, “What do you want for lunch?”

It never fails, half the time, you can’t figure out what you want to eat.  So, you settle on the next restaurant that comes by.  Where’s your favorite place to eat?

Restricting Calories – Why Your Image Is Important

When people go on a diet, they tend to restrict calories, or carbohydrates, or fats.  You can’t restrict your diet of any of those.  Each of these are primary substances that our body needs to run.

Every noticed how Self Image is important into today’s age?  Well, it’s important for many reasons.  Mental and Physical healthy being the primary reasons.

The image of who we are is important because not being in good health can cause stress, depression, and numerous other illnesses.  That’s not the lifestyle we need to live.  When you restrict calories in a diet, you’re jeopardizing that lifestyle.

The Raw food movement is gaining ground and more people are starting to take part.  If you want that sexy body you’ve been dying to get, then you might want to take some advice from this girl.

As you can see, Image is everything.  It’s the sole purpose of how we should be, how we should thrive.  If you’ve ever wondered how people can, or should look nowadays, just take a look at a Healthy, Active child.

Those children that run around outside as apposed to sitting inside all day, those are the healthy ones.  They have slim figures, and hardly any fat.  If you look at fitness models, that’s how we should look.  Slim, Trim, and hardly any Fat.  The only time you need Fat, is in Survival Situations.  Clearly, there is an abundance of food here.

Why risk the side effects of being over weight, when you can have a healthy, slim, fit body?

What are you going to start doing to get that body you’ve always desired?

NASA Astronomers Find New Earth Like Planet – Kepler 22b

Super Earths, massive Earth Like planets that are usually much larger than Earth.  Kepler 22b happens to fall under that category.  Being 2.4 times larger than Earth, surely makes it a potential goal for our Space program.

According to NASA, at least 48 planets have been found in the Habitable Zone of star systems.  This means that 48 planets so far have the potential to sustain life.  This is a huge leap for Science, History, and Astronomy.

Just a decade or so ago, many people were convinced that Humans are the highest intelligent life forms in the Universe.  Heck, they even went as far as saying that we were the only planet in the Universe that could even sustain life.  That we were alone.

Personally, I blame the Government and the Religious leaders for hiding so many secrets.  This however, isn’t about them.  There are many blogs and forums dedicated to that.

I’m speaking more about the potential, the future.  I wrote a post once describing how many stars were in the night sky based on the Deep Space images that Hubble took.  If you do the math, there are Sextillion stars in the visible Universe, according to Hubble.  That’s a huge number.

In fact, Scientist now believe that there are actually 300 Sextillion stars out there.  Basically, take Sextillion and multiply that by 300 and you have an even more massive number.  So, my calculation is minute in the possibilities.

Back to Kepler 22b.  If Kepler 22b is 2.4 times larger than the Earth and there are 300 Sextillion stars out there.  Then it makes you wonder how many Earth Like planets are out there.  Something else that has crossed my mind is, how much larger do Earth Like planets actually get?  Better yet, how many stars are there out there really?  Especially if our Universe is infinite.

We’ve only just begun to scratch the surface.  It’s clear that we won’t be headed to Kepler 22b any time soon.  Not unless we have a Stargate that will allow us to travel there instantly.

What does this mean for our future?  Well, if we don’t blow each other up in the coming wars, we just might actually find  a planet exactly like Earth in many ways.  These Earth Like planets should be a driving force for our Great Nations to work together for a common goal.

The very existence of Humanity depends on our technological growth.  That is if we want to sustain the current lifestyles that we have.  If we want to preserve our future, our cultures, then we must push forward.

Whether or not you’re a believer in Alien Life Forms, Kepler  22b is a step in the right direction to proving that life elsewhere exist.  I for one have always been a firm believer in Extraterrestrial Life.  It’s only a matter of time before we make a new leap into Space.  Perhaps, some of us might actually live to see that happen.

My Thoughts On Abortion

Now, I’m probably going to get some flaming comments and heated debates about this topic, but I wanted to make it clear how I felt about Abortion.  The short answer?  I’m against it.  Here’s why.

Some people may not know this, but there are options for Pregnant women.  The last thing we need them doing is giving up on life completely.  Pregnancy centers and adoption centers are there for them when they need it.

Let me ask you a couple of questions.  Is it legal for someone to murder a child?  Is it legal for someone to murder a child that is only 6 months into pregnancy?  Chances are, you answered no to both those questions.  Then why should it be legal for someone to commit murder on any child?

Well, what about rape victims?  Shouldn’t they have the option to abort?  Can I abort your brain right now for asking that question?  I’m sure we can put it to good use for Scientific study to find out why some people become stupid.

Let’s get a few things straight.  If you abort a child, you might be aborting the next great scientist with the cure for aids.  You might be aborting the next great person who’ll be able to bring this world closer to world peace.  You might be aborting the next great doctor who discovers a way to double the life expectancy of mankind.

Women that abort their children can attest that it crosses their minds all the time.  It’s another pain that they have to deal with on a daily basis.  So, if a woman was raped, then why should she be “Forced” to go through another pain that could scar her for life?

It’s much better for a person to go through life and become a stronger person knowing that they gave their child the best chance they could give them.  Not to mention easier.  Abortion should not be an option.  Period.

Abortion in my opinion is an atrocious act towards humanity.  Any sane mother wouldn’t kill their children, so why should we be allowed to do that legally?  Which side of the fence are you going to be on when it boils down to it?  Life or Death?

Why We Make Mistakes?

Many people often make mistakes.  Yet, sometimes we don’t know why.  I recently had to make a change in my Biggest Reasons Why Americans Are Overweight post.  It was a simple mistake too that anyone can make.

Down at the bottom, when I started talking about “they’re tampering with our health,” I had out instead of our.  Simple mistake right?

What about when we make mistakes that are big mistakes, the ones that make us feel a little down?

Today, I finished my workout routine.  Well, the Cardiovascular part of it anyway.  I found out that I actually had an error in my last calculation on Calories burned.  Yesterday, I had thought that I burned about  363 calories, when it was no where near.

Here’s the formula that I used to calculate those Calories.  men: calories = [(0.6309 x heart rate) + (0.2017 x age) — (0.09036 x weight) — 55.0969] x time / 4.184.

Gotten from Livestrong.com

 See the part where it says — 55.0969]?  Yeah, I missed that completely in my calculation.  Somehow, someway, I just totally left it out.  So, while figuring out the new calculation, I was slightly disappointed.

Can you imagine how disappointing it is to find out that you’re not burning 300+ Calories, but instead you’re burning more like 186.  And that’s after increasing your time on the Elliptical to push yourself?  Sags head and walks away………

……

…..

Ok, maybe not quite yet.  Unless I’m doing the formula wrong, there’s a big mistake there, but what can we learn from mistakes?

For starters, we can’t dwell on them.  We have to move on and learn from them.  We have to be more careful next time, so that we won’t make the same mistake again.  Life is too short to be filled with fouls.

It also helps to not be tired when you’re writing a blog post.  You’re more likely to catch those mistakes.  So make sure you get a good nights sleep.

So, what! if. I; make/misteaks….Get over it.  That’s all we can do right?  Get over it and move on.  Learn from them and not bash ourselves too much.

Biggest Reasons Why Americans Are Overweight!

Americans are said to be the most over weight, but many have a hard time figuring out why.  Why is it that many Americans are starting to be overweight and in worse health than the previous generation?  I think I have the answer.

Reason 1

Exercise….
Many Americans nowadays aren’t getting enough exercise.  That’s right, something as simple as exercise can have a big impact on our daily lives.  In the movie WALL-E, the people roamed around on hover chairs.  Who needs a wheel chair right?  Especially when the machine will do all the work for you.

Is that the kind of life style we want?  To be subjects who are limited in our mobility based on some machine?  Right now many kids are experiencing this because of Parents not letting their kids play in the park.  Instead, they’ll let them play Video Games all day and do nothing.

Now, before you go bashing Video games and start blaming the games themselves, maybe you should take a closer look a parenting.  I play Video Games myself, but that doesnt’ mean that Nerds can’t be fit.  I in fact have started a Cardio Routine, which will eventually turn into running, which in turn will turn into a Marathon.

I have goals, kids nowadays, don’t.  That’s partly because parents let their kids spend too much time playing Video Games as apposed to….well, playing.

Reason 2

Over Indulging…..
Many restaurants have started (in the last decade)  increasing portion sizes.  Now, they even go as far as encourage you to get a large or (in some cases) super-size.  In this case, bigger isn’t always better.  Tell me something.

Do you feel better now that you’re bigger?  Again, bigger isn’t always better.  My parents often times make two meals out of one meal when they go out to eat.  Why?  Many of these meals are filled with Calories.  Many of them over 1,000 calories.  That’s half a days Calories for most.

Still think Bigger is Better?

Reason 3

Quality of Food
Our food quality has reduced in the last 10-20 years drastically.  Farmers are basically killing the land that they farm one with all the chemicals that they spray on plants.  Therefore, we’re forced to look for alternatives: plants that are bug resistant, plants that yield more, and even plants that grow better in certain climates.

When you start tampering with plants: spraying chemicals, changing DNA strands, making them more volatile, something has to give.  So, where do we suffer?  In Nutritional Value.  I can’t stress this enough….

Life is too precious to tamper with.  By tampering with those plants, they’re tampering with our health.  Empty calories adds to our over all weight.  Really.  What else is our body going to use useless calories for?

So, my question for you today is, did this inspire you?  If so, what are your plans for taking action?

Staying Fit – Why Staying Fit Is Not An Option

So, science has confirmed what many people have believed over time.  What is this confirmation?  Well, let’s just say that many people think that it’s quite possible to stay fit at any age.

What’s the verdict?  Basically, you’ll have to maintain a certain level of activity or increase your activity as you get older.  Why?  Simply put, it takes a little more work to stay healthy at an older age.

This doesn’t mean that people can’t stay as healthy as a 20 year old at the age of 50+.  This is crucial to reducing factors such as Cardiovascular Disease.

Why is this crucial?  According to a study, Women are 5 times more likely to get Cardiovascular Disease than a physically fit woman.  Same study provides evidence that Men are 8 times more likely to get Cardiovascular Disease for not being fit.  Good enough reason to stay fit?

This study was done in Europe, where they are always looking for more answers, unlike the American counter parts, who just want to find a quick fix.  Exercise is very crucial to anything we do.  Want to lose weight?  Want to stay fit?  Want those sexy abs?  Gotta exercise.
