Man's body build and size

Q and A, meme from Irel. Instruction: I will post the answer on my site, then I tell her what's the answer and I post another question for her and for other people that I tag but it has to be different question; after that I have to paste who asked (URL of their site should be linked with their name) the question, and my answer to the tag!

The question is(hhmm): "how true is it that body builders have small, (you know) penile size?"

There is a proverbial saying in my place that the bigger the man’s body build, the smaller is his thing. So is it true? I have my thoughts about this but I will find medical explanations to backup my thinking. As it might not be true to all, I think it is. Many fitness enthusiasts, including athletes, bodybuilders and weight lifters are turning to muscle-enhancing supplements to power up their athletic performance, build a stronger physique and give them the winning edge, turned to bodybuilding steroids to help them achieve fast results. Well, if they think it makes them attractive or appealing, so be it. The bigger their bodies get, the smaller their penile sizes seem, to counteract and balance the nature?

Here is the explanation: body buildingWhen a man takes external (I understand, not natural of the body) body-building steroids beyond what would be medically correct dosing, that man's brain senses that there is plenty of testosterone in the blood stream. Because of this, it shuts down the body's own testosterone production. The longer a man takes the anabolic or body-building steroids, the longer his body will go in the shut-down mode. When this occurs we often see that the man's genitals, both penis and testicles, will dramatically shrink in size. Sometimes, when they stop the steroid, everything returns to normal; sometimes it doesn't, and the system can stay shut down forever. The super body builders that take the steroids are famous for having very, very small "packages." So in general, anabolic steroids may be great if you really want to have large biceps, but only if you are willing to essentially sacrifice your testicles, future fertility, and penile size for them.

Papua New Guinea

Yesterday in photo. Papua New Guinea. One of our missionaries is there since last year. It's just good to know how is it there. Some 80% of Papua New Guinea's people live in rural areas with few or no facilities. But they got their first transistor radios recently, in the remote villages. Many tribes in the isolated mountainous interior have little contact with each other, let alone with the outside world, and live within a non-monetarised economy, dependent on subsistence agriculture. Good to know that some people are reaching them.

My Loungewear and Sleepwear

No changing required! Sometimes when in emergency I still have to change clothes to go to town to be “presentable” of my self, for sometimes house clothes are just not fitting for town outing. So hubby got me women’s clothing comfortable enough to wear around the house and also wear out on the town. How convenient it would be if women didn’t have to change out of their “house clothes” every time they left the house for an errand or an appointment? There is a women’s clothing line that offers a wide selection of versatile women's loungewear (and women’s sleepwear) that fits just this need; versatile enough to wear around the house and also wear out on the town, to wear out for a night, and even cuts out the middle-man and provides easy, sassy and comfortable clothing for women. How convenient is that? Perfect for the woman on the go, and the sleepwear collection is ideal for the woman seeking sleepwear serenity! Easy to wear, every piece is versatile and beautiful is the kind of clothe, lounge wear and sleepwear I want, and Erin Braxton has paved the clothing line.

Dimming the red light

Good boys go to heaven and bad boys go to Amsterdam" according to the t-shirt design. Why is that, how bad is Amsterdam? I would never know it if hubby didn’t tell me about Amsterdam’s excessive proliferation of commerce based on sex, drugs and alcohol, for all of which the city earned its global reputation. That was what I heard, prostitutes in the city skirts. But at least now, they are dimming the red light district. The plan is to convert the buildings in which prostitutes pose in the windows into apartments and more conventional commercial space. Not sure yet, but most likely be going there in 2 weeks from now; and be seeing the progress actually.

Corporate Branding and Strategy

What’s in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but creating your corporate name by just any other ordinary name would not be as sweet to your success amidst the overpopulated markets of large and small companies that are overexposed with marketing message. What’s in a name? A name can help a brand to enter the public consciousness. Corporate Branding and strategy. Creating product brand recognition. Corporate branding is the practice of using a company's name as a product brand name. It is an attempt to leverage corporate brand equity to create product brand recognition. Why is it important? One goal in brand recognition is the identification of a brand, when a brand enjoys a critical mass of positive sentiment in the marketplace. Powerful corporate branding can equip most any new product or service with instant credibility and value that simply can’t be reproduced with any sort of product-focused marketing campaign, a strong corporate brand adds depth and value to a company’s product offerings. It’s also a public statement of the company’s culture and values, a buzz for your business. A brand image may be developed by attributing a "personality" to or associating an "image" with a product or service, whereby the personality or image is "branded" into the consciousness of consumers. A brand is therefore one of the most valuable elements in an advertising theme. Marketers engaged in branding seek to develop or align the expectations behind the brand experience, creating the impression that a brand associated with a product or service has certain qualities or characteristics that make it special or unique. In other words, let your branding do the promoting for you. Learn more about the importance of corporate branding, brand strategy, and how Brand Identity Guru can optimize your Branding marketing.

Your color, for success?

A skin-lightening cream’s - a product that is now on the shelves of British shops, ad says and thus come out to simply reinforces the idea that “you've got to be fair to be anything in life, It says that if you're fair and good looking, you'll be a wonderful daughter-in-law or husband, your skin colour determines how successful you'll be in life”. The skin-lightening cream for men, along with its more feminine counterparts, has found its way into Asian supermarkets and stores in the west. The ad reinforces age-old prejudices that already exists within the South Asian community, in which the darker skinned can find themselves looked down upon. But in the west, you’re in if you’re tan. The discontentment of men. Your skin colour determines how successful you'll be in life? Nah! And success either does not come because you're tan. But it is the inferiority complex because of the skin colour, which we should never have condescending attitude towards.

School for wrestlers?

Some of our favorite shows as we cuddle watching TV are Ultimate fighting championship, boxing, wrestling, and the like. They are exciting, entertaining, and sometimes, opposite. Fighters come from anywhere, and many are from Mexico. Do they really have wrestling school?

BBC. "Deep in the belly of Arena Mexico, the enormous venue known as the "cathedral of lucha libre" in central Mexico City, there is heavy pounding as bodies slam against the canvas-covered floor of a wrestling ring. But the noise is being made by teenagers and young men, not the theatrical wrestlers famous for their ostentatious masks and flamboyant moves. And in a country where more than 40% live in poverty, the potential earnings offered by lucha libre, although not on a par with professional footballers, are also a huge draw. "Any Mexican man wants to be a lucha libre fighter, because it promises us the kind of money that you'll never earn in other professions," says Victor, who is also studying electronics."

Protect the Value of your Home 2

4 Saturdays a year:

Spring Day 1

Inspect your roof from a ladder ( walking on it can cause damage). Look for shingles or tiles that have loosened, slipped or blown off. You'll likely want to hire someone to install new shingles (the smallest project will start at $250); ignore the problem and one day you may have to spend $10,000 to $30,000 on a new roof, and even much higher. Ours cost just that, not that it was damaged but hubby is changing it for good, life time service.

Day 2
Repeat the fall inspection of your walls. Change your furnace's air filter again.

Protect the Value of your Home

4 Saturdays a Year: Devote four Saturdays a year to home maintenance and you can prevent costly repairs later. The biggest threat: water damage, which lead to rotting and mold.

Fall: Day 1
Clean the gutters - clogs can cause water to back up into the eaves, and the acid produced by leaves and bird droppings eats away at metal. For better energy efficiency, change the air filter in your furnace.

Day 2
Water can seep in around windows and doors, so open each one to check whether dirt has clogged the weep holes, the small drains in the tracks. Unclog them with a straightened paper clip. Next circle your home's exxterior looking for gaps around windows and doors. Fill them with caulking. Also watch for protruding nails. As the tmeperature changes, the holes expand and contract, pushing out the nails. Replace them with galvanized nails.

We have some people working around the house these days. It is just wise to maintain or replace roof and elements and other places in the house now that winter has not yet come, now that though the material costs are so high, later it will be much higher, and now while there is yet no or just little damage than a big one in the future. Hubby's wise planning.

Hip replacement

Before I came here in the USA I knew that my future father-in-law was going to have a knee operation. Heaven knows how hard is it to stand, if we can, with hurting knees and hips, much worse, if we can not do simple movements such as walking, bending, and turning. With age and stress, the cartilage wears away, and the bones rub against each other, causing friction, swelling, stiffness, pain, and sometimes deformity. When this occurs, hip or knee replacement can relieve pain and restore mobility and quality of life. Dr. Allen Gustafson is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon renowned for his experience, skill, and accomplishments in joint replacement and reconstruction; he specializes in knee and hip replacement. As founder and director of Gustafson Orthopaedics, Dr. Gustafson, together with his dedicated staff, can provide: thorough evaluation and accurate diagnosis of joint pain, effective treatment recommendations, patient education resources, expert surgical intervention, if needed, and a complete recovery program. I saw the recovery.

Dressing in style

How passionate about fashion I am? As long as we know the right poise, bring ourselves and the way we dress up, and to brand our own styles, we will never be out of fashion whose trends are in a sharp zigzag. From Melody.

Dress In Style
My wardrobe is somewhat in style of their own; it is hubby who is my fashion consultant, tua. I’m picky with dress style though; I like those that are colorful, before I prefer all black, classy and elegant. Be going to Amsterdam next month, maybe can peek through their style there.

My Eating Habits
when hubby is home, we eat healthy and on our time, but when alone, I just eat when I feel like to. All I know is that he does not want me to get fat.

Gimmick Nights
not much gimmick, we just dine out once or so when hubby’s home, after a theater date. We just love to spend our nights watching TV together, cuddling and loving, with wine and food.

What I Wear
I wear clothes that I know in Philippines, at least in my place and for those who know me, they think quiet unlikely of me, they’re just so conservative. What I wear depends on hubby’s preference as well.

Commercial collection

I’m thinking of a number. Do you know what it is? No, it’s not my credit report, but it’s the debt people owed you. What’s the best way of recovering the money owed to you, or to them before embarking on an expensive and often fruitless legal route? When debts are disputed, you might need a mediator, a commercial collection agency who has experience in litigation, credit reports, bailiff services, receiverships, liquidation, process serving and bankruptcy. Business collectors that people tend to take extremely seriously before they advise you to take any further action. Ours, and the commercial collectors goal is to resolve the problem without having to file a lawsuit. Lawsuits raise the client's costs, extend the time needed to collect, and create the possibility of the debtor filing a counterclaim. It’s very consuming of our time, effort and money. Collect your outstanding debt, while maintaining the potential for the sale of future services, with the aid of collection business, one that caters to your situation, protect and not take advantage of you and your money.

Hated Things

Mademoiselle Francine got me tagged about things that I hate. Can't help it, there always are things that are just not appealing to us to intense dislike. These are some of my own:

2. Fruits -tisa
3. Veggies -turnips
4. People -pretenders and liars, gossipers
5. Event/Situation/Incident - compromising situation, hehe
6. TV Shows/Movies - big brother
7. Music - heavy metal, or the kind that gives me headache just by listening
8. Household Chores - vacuuming, maybe it’s the vacuum, won't suck 100%.
9. Things around the world - terrorism, communism
10. Things about myself - untrusting, don’t care for something not worthy of my fight.

Bulak, Julai, let us know your hated things.

Drug Rehabilitation

By any measure, drug addiction is a dire problem in our societies. What’s more disturbing is that we always see it on the headlines each day about different people who would have lived better lives. Drug abuse ruins lives and wrecks families; we have been witnessing that. Drug abuse prevents individuals from maintaining steady employment, or fulfilling their professional responsibilities as they come out of their right minds. Even worse, drug abuse kills. Many thousands of Americans, some are famous people, die of drug overdoses every year. They leave loved ones behind: parents, husbands, wives, children. They also leave a legacy, a stain, a reminder for all of us that the battle against drug abuse is far from won, and that we as a nation and a community have an obligation, to each other and ourselves, to ensure that those individuals who need drug treatment get it.

According to a study conducted by the United States government, 19.1 million Americans use illicit substances every month. What do those numbers mean? On any given day, hundreds of thousands of people dig themselves deeper into the hole of drug abuse and drug addiction. My worst fear is when we, or our loved ones will be caught up in the trap of those physically and psychologically destructing substances. On any given day, in other words hundreds of thousands of people are in dire need of drug rehabilitation. As hard as it might be to believe, drug rehab works, drug recovery is a very real thing, and the right drug rehab facility can make all the difference in the world. That’s the truth about drug abuse and drug recovery: people get better, addicts get healed.

Individuals who seek drug treatment really can overcome drug addiction. Patients who admit themselves to a drug treatment center really do have cause for faith. The road is hardly an easy one, and the way is nothing if not long, but some journeys are too important not to take. And that’s why Cliffside Malibu is here to help. The keys to winning the war against drug addiction lie in intervention and treatment. Their California drug rehab center provides both of these services: intervention to convince drug addicts that they need help, drug treatment to provide that help once it’s been asked for. There’s no excuse for inaction, no reason for hesitation. If you or someone you love needs the services of a drug rehab facility, contact Cliffside Malibu today at 800-501-1988 to see what their California drug rehab center has to offer. Help is waiting, for anyone willing to seek it out. If you’re staring down the barrel of drug addiction, you can’t afford to do anything less. The way is hard, and the way is long, but it’s a road worth traveling, and a road that you’ll never regret having taken.

It's a girl - bury needles to her body..

It must just be a boy or a boy. A female born was not appreciated, instilling the parochial mindsets that deem the girl unwanted, a tradition of gender bias in the family. Even some killed. In many rural areas, boys were - and still are - valued more highly than girls; it's a practice well rooted among the educated and affluent as well. One reason is that they can carry on the family name. Is it worth it? Will it help the family reputation to place a burden on females?

A Chinese woman has been in a needle ordeal. Doctors in China have discovered 26 sewing needles embedded in the body of a 31-year-old woman. They think they were inserted into Luo Cuifen's body when she was a baby by grandparents upset she was not a boy. Some of these needles have penetrated vital organs, such as the lungs, liver and kidneys. One has even broken into three pieces in the woman's brain. The needles were discovered only when Ms Luo went to hospital complaining of blood in her urine. She was given a routine X-ray, which revealed the needles. Up until then she had been in good health. Doctors believe the needles were inserted into the woman when she was just a few days old by her grandparents, who they believe were disappointed that she was not a boy. But there is no way to confirm this theory, as the grandparents are now dead.

A boy or a girl, it is the same life given by God. Such poor innocent babies burdened by society’s pressure on them being females. In this male-preponderant society, a large male-female imbalance is undesirable. In the long run, acute shortage in females over males affects a society, as severe shortage of either sex leads to considerable social disruption and personal unhappiness. And back to the needle, at least they did not kill the girl, but inserting needles in her reaching her vital organs is still as unreasonable.

Skinny cook

Last Saturday we were having a family dine-out in a homey, country style restaurant that serves the best eat-all-you-can fried catfish. While waiting for our orders, each were busy observing anything old that were hung upon the small restaurant's perimeter. Kind of funny, yet serious statement carved into a very old frame: "Do not trust a skinny cook!"

Lovely Wood Blinds

Window treatments are an excellent way to save energy. They provide insulation during the cold winter months as well as repel the heat during the summer. Different styles will provide better energy savings. The benefits of deflecting the sun’s heat during the summer months include:

* Reduced energy consumption.
* Lower Energy bills.
* Less fading of your interior furnishings.
* More consistent and comfortable inside temperature.

That is exactly what our window blinds do. So if you are looking for energy-efficient blinds, see faux wood blinds. Keep in mind though that interior window coverings such as honeycomb shades, wood blinds, and faux wood blinds reduce solar heat most effectively if the surface facing the glass is a reflective color like white.

There is one interesting News Blog I stumble upon today, containing many informative articles for those interested in reading and sharing their opinion. It is an interesting blog with Business and Financial Services Writers/Bloggers sharing expert advice and current news event stories with those interested in business, marketing, finance, health, technology and other newsworthy topics. One note is the politically inclined -Democracy Now: Fundamental Duties of a Citizen. People enjoyed so much of the democracy they have but sometimes we have to be reminded of the duties as citizens. "A democratic society cannot function without guaranteeing fundamental rights of its citizens and its citizens cannot function democratically without discharging their fundamental duties in society." Review some of your duties as citizen of your country at the Political Blog, so worth a read.

Green Card Production

At long last! Hubby got an email early this morning from USCIS. They ordered already production of my green card! We are happy yet at the same time, gosh, I thought it would not come! But whatever might be the reasons of its delay, so glad that at least it is produced, and thankful that it means "no interview" for me. We really needed this that we applied for advance parole so I could travel back and forth without problems. Though it was 305 bucks already, no regrets. Oh well, whichever of them may come first will be used straight away to secure my Schengen visa for the Netherlands. It is so close to home, I hope will come asap now that it is there.

Pack of wolves

If you go along to any estate and see the age of kids marauding around like a pack of wolves, you'd see that reducing the age of criminal responsibility to eight or nine would be vital; that is according to Lawrence Lee who was solicitor for Jon Venables, one of two 10-year-olds who murdered two-year-old James Bulger in 1993. Why? Almost 3,000 crimes were committed last year where the suspect was too young to be prosecuted, the BBC has learned. Figures show there were about 1,300 incidents of criminal damage and arson, and over 60 sex offences where suspects were under-10s in England and Wales.

The number of children who commit sex crimes is on the rise. Campaigners say youngsters at risk of offending need more help, but why are they behaving in this way in the first place? As a proportion of total crime the numbers are small. But children murderers and offenders? Isn't it very terrifying of what has come to the children, (and their parents) these days? Such innocent creatures turned into wolves from what misguided mind they have. Those years are very critical for their learning minds, they should be shielded from the criminal environment, other perpetrating children, and media they are exposed to. "The best approach to serious child offenders is to deal with them as children who need effective care measures." For parents it is always taking time training up a child in a way he should go, for when he is old (and even still young) he will not depart from it.
