GE 13 - REAL Tips

Posted: 21 Oct 2011 09:50 AM PDT

Dear friends,

To help you enforce your rights as a voter, Tindak Malaysia has come up with the below to ensure compliance to the Election Laws so that you are not misinformed and the information you know will give you the confidence to stand up for yourself (at least).

So, please take the time to read and safe this mail for the time when you need to print out the section relevant to bring along with you.

Please forward this to as many people as possible.

If for some reason you see some pencil marks of numbers or markings on the front or back of the Ballot Paper or Kertas Undi other than your own mark, do NOT erase.

Just ask for another Kertas Undi to exchange for the rejected Kertas Undi.

Make sure your rejected Kertas Undi is stamped "BATAL" (cancelled) by the Ketua Tempat Mengundi ("KTM") {Presiding Officer}.

If the SPR uses special chemically-treated Kertas Undi, rubbing/erasing can cause smudges to the Kertas Undi, thereby renders your Kertas Undi spoilt, causing it to be rejected.

If the KTM refuses to give you a fresh Kertas Undi –– show him the relevant Law & Regulation –– READ below on how to handle this...
Tips on HOW to protect your vote and the role you can play

The Crucial GE 13... Your Vote is Priceless...

1. Barung (Booth):
As you enter the school, you approach a verification centre known as the Barung (Booth). They will verify that you are a voter in that school and the Barung Clerk will issue you a Slip directing you to the correct polling station (or classroom). This slip has a reference number known as "Bil" (Bilangan or number) at the top corner written by the Barung Clerk.

2. Kerani 1:
As soon as you enter the polling station, you approach Kerani 1 and pass her your Barung Slip, who will check your identity against your Mykad. She will read out your Bil and locate your Name in the SPR Electoral Roll. She will then read out your NRIC number and name from your MyKad (and not from the Electoral Roll). Once verification is made and there are no objections from the PACAs (Polling Agents and Counting Agents), Kerani 1 will pass your MYkad to Kerani 2.

3. Kerani 2:
Here, Kerani 2 will proceed to tear a serialised Ballot Paper (Kertas Undi) from the top of the Ballot Paper Booklet. This procedure will enable your name to be matched to the serial number. Doing so violates the following Election Laws and Regulations:

19. Manner of voting

and, because the SPR staff are bound by their Oath of Secrecy, they also violate:

Election Offences Act 1954, Part II ELECTORAL OFFENCES
5. Maintenance of secrecy at elections,
6. Offences against this Part.

See Appendix below for full details.

You are entitled, under Election Law, in order to protect the secrecy of your vote, to ask for a different Kertas Undi, i.e. from a different page of the same book. Stop the clerk and say: "Encik/Puan, saya minta Kertas Undi dari bawah." (If they object, show them the APPENDIX that you have brought along. At this point in time, the PACA will also step in to support you.)

Once the issue of the ballot paper is randomized, the secrecy of your vote is assured. (Make sure that Kerani 2 does not try to record your voter Bil on the counterfoil. You will have helped the next voter also as the whole sequence is randomized and cannot be traced) Kerani 2 will hand the Kertas Undi to the next officer, Kerani 3.

4. Kerani 3:
Kerani 3 will use a embossing tool to perforate the ballot paper at the lower left hand corner. Then see that it is folded into half before she hands it to you. Examine the ballot paper to ensure it is clean (free of smudges or writing), perforated properly and has a serial numbrt on the top left hand corner. If any of the 3 conditions are not met, immediately demand for a replacement ballot. Once satisfied, you now proceed to the voting booth.

5. Voting Booth:
Inside the voting booth, mark with an X in the right hand box corresponding to the candidate of your choice. Fold the paper neatly and drop it in the appropriate box (there will be separate boxes for State and Parliament constituencies).

Better still, attend our regular Polling Agent, Counting Agent or a Booth Agent ("PACABA") Training conducted every Saturday at MBPJ 1st Floor, Bilik Bunga Mawar.

Check here for the schedules:

Dear friends,

Remember that the conduct of free and fair elections is not just the responsibility of the SPR (and whoever can trust them to be free and fair), but the responsibility of every voter.

Two other important things that you can do, irrespective of your political inclinations:

1. Get everyone who has not registered as a voter to register immediately. You can do this at any post office. It's a simple 5 minutes procedure. If necessary, drive the person there and make it happen. Or refer to the FAQ here: or contact the Assistant Voter Registration Officers (ARO) for help. They are based in Selangor and are nice, lovely people:

Jasmine Ng <> –– 016-3177788
Syed Harun <> –– 016-9786641
2. Volunteer to be a Polling Agent, Counting Agent or a Booth Agent ("PACABA") for whichever party that you choose to support. Tindak Malaysia is spearheading this training for anyone so that we can ensure that on election day, the process is as fair as humanly possible.

Come for the PACABA training conducted free so that you know why and how...

Please my friends, take the GE13 seriously because the destiny of Malaysia is in your hands.

You hold the authority to decide on who will hold the reins of power in Putrajaya.

Your vote is even more imperative, if the rumours that many Permanent Residents ("PRs") and Illegal Immigrants have suddenly been given citizenship and the right to vote.

Whether or not that is true, your vote is priceless.

Remember that on election day, in fact after Parliament is dissolved for new elections, there are no opposition parties/ ruling parties anymore. After Parliament is dissolved, there is only a caretaker government, and BN is no longer in power.

So please do not refer to Pakatan Rakyat ("PR") as an opposition party, or BN as the ruling party anymore from thence. It's a mindset that has to change, so that we do not relate certain parties being the opposition, even before election day.

"Thoughts have a way of becoming Reality."

Thanks for your attention, and please do send this mail out.

The power is internet and networking is here to be used for good.

APPENDIX: Print this out and bring along to the polling station in case of dispute.


19. Manner of Voting

(2) As each voter applies for a ballot paper, the number and name of the voter as stated, in the electoral roll shall be called out and a mark, without indicating in any way the particular ballot paper to be issued to him, shall be placed in the roll against the number of the voter to denote that he has been issued with a ballot paper.

(3) The ballot paper shall be perforated or stamped with the official mark or initialled by the presiding officer on the margin of the ballot paper and the ballot paper shall then be issued to the voter by the presiding officer or a person acting under his authority.

Election Offences Act 1954, Part II Section 5 –– Maintenance of Secrecy at Elections

(1) Every officer, clerk, interpreter, candidate, agent and any other person (hereinafter in this section referred to as an "authorized person") authorized to attend any proceedings connected with the issue or receipt of postal ballot papers, or at a polling station, or at the counting of the votes, shall, before so attending make an oath of secrecy substantially in Form A in the First Schedule.

(2) Every officer, clerk, interpreter, candidate, agent and authorized person in attendance at a polling station shall maintain, and aid in maintaining, the secrecy of the voting in such station, and shall not communicate, except for some purpose authorized by law, before the poll is closed, to any person any information as to the name or number on the register of electors of any elector who has or has not applied for a ballot paper or voted at that station, or as to the official mark, but the total number of voters who have voted at any station at any time before the poll is closed may, in the discretion of the presiding officer, be divulged to a candidate or his agent or a police officer authorized to attend or on duty at the polling station.

(4) Every officer, clerk, interpreter, candidate, agent, police officer and authorized person, in attendance at the counting of the votes shall maintain, and aid in maintaining, the secrecy of the voting, and shall not attempt to communicate any information obtained at such counting as to the candidate for whom any vote is given by any particular ballot paper.

(5) No person except a presiding officer acting for a purpose authorized by any written law relating to any election or a person authorized by the presiding officer and acting for such purpose as aforesaid, shall communicate or attempt to communicate with any voter after such voter has received a ballot paper and before he has placed the same in a ballot box.

(6) Every person attending any proceedings in connection with the issue or the receipt of ballot papers for persons voting by post shall maintain and aid in maintaining, the secrecy of the voting and shall not without lawful excuse ––

(a) communicate, before the poll is closed, to any person any information obtained at those proceedings as to any official perforation, stamp or mark to be used in connection with any ballot paper;

(4) A prosecution for an offence under this Part shall not be instituted without the sanction of the Public Prosecutor.

Note: Section 6 (4) is a fall-back protection for the SPR staff as no prosecution can be conducted without the sanction of the Public Prosecutor.
That is why sometimes a corrupt SPR Officer will dare to act with impunity, knowing that the system will not allow him to fall.
That is provided there is no change in the Ruling Party.

Screwing KJ...

Posted: 21 Oct 2011 09:37 AM PDT

Of all the people (namely pro-BN bloggers), Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin got a 'well-done' fry. Everybody is pointing finger at him over Lim Guan Eng's 'boobs-son' saga. His tweet about it is drawing 'first blood' from every corner.

Malaysiakini, Karpal Singh and others. And latest, Sinchew labels KJ as 'foolish'.

"Should it be the words and deeds of a well educated politician graduated from the Oxford University? As the BN Youth chief, should he slander bully a 16-year-old boy? Spreading rumours and launching personal attacks on the Internet are flaws in the Internet age, as well as a cheap political weapon.

"Khairy used to be a victim himself. He was involved in a sex scandal spread online after he got married with Nori Abdullah..." according to an article by Tay Tian Yan titled A Foolish Move.

It also suggested KJ to apologise to LGE.

"The only way to make up is to apology to Lim's family, as well as the society. As for the mercenary team members behind the scene, would they learn a lesson and be watchful over their own deeds and words?"

However, while there are rebuttals, the 'confirmation' is still coming from a few bloggers.

Blogger The Flying Kick posted a new angle to the scandal. Under 'Guan Eng Mengamuk Sakan', he writes:

"Isu anak lelaki ramas tetek yang kononnya dimulakan oleh blogger pro-UMNO sebenarnya tidak lebih daripada helah agar isu SPICE yang melibatkan RM430 juta tidak dipedulikan.

Tony Pua dikesan cuba memanjangkan isu anak lelaki Guan Eng ramas tetek dengan bantuan Malaysian Insider dan Malaysiakini.

Namun sekali lagi mereka terkantoi apabila Pengetua SJKC membuat 'pengakuan' yang kemudian terbukti ada sesuatu yang diselindungi iaitu bantuan RM2 juta untuk sekolah tersebut..."

Looks like the scope of the story is getting wider, linking to so many other things.

While some bloggers are challenging LGE to sue them for libel and defamation, the Penang CM has yet to do anything to clear his name and his son's.

I believe more build ups are coming... and let's see who actually got the big BOOBS to stand up to the issue!

Sindiket Pelacuran Guna Facebook Cari Pelanggan

Posted: 21 Oct 2011 09:42 AM PDT

Laman sosial popular, Facebook bukan sekadar menjadi kegemaran sesetengah penggunanya untuk berkomunikasi secara canggih tetapi disalahguna oleh individu tidak bertanggungjawab.

Terbaru dapat dikesan, Facebook digunakan untuk membuat tempahan pelacur. Malaysia No 1 Call Girl Service . 3C Agent 012959****, antara alamat dalam laman itu yang dikenalpasti sebagai medium untuk melanggan gadis negara luar antaranya dari China, Thailand dan Indonesia.

Setakat jam 7 petang semalam, laman tersebut ditanda 'like' oleh seramai 2,080 individu.

Perkhidmatan ditawarkan hanya di sekitar Lembah Klang seperti entri terbaru pemiliknya iaitu 3C Agent, kira-kira jam 5.15 petang; "Sila ambil Perhatian . Customer . Service 3C hanya Di KUALA LUMPUR . Negeri Lain Tak Ada . Jangan Telephone Tanya Lagi. Memang Tak Ada di Negeri Lain. Tolong Berkerjasama."

Hanya dengan tiga cara mudah, pelanggan perlu mencari hotel, menghubungi 3C Agent di talian tertera, memaklumkan jenis gadis dan membuat pembayaran sebelum perkhidmatan seks dilakukan.

Bagaimanapun, ketika Sinar Harian cuba menggunakan talian itu, didapati ia gagal dihubungi.

3C Agent melalui komen balas di laman tersebut berkata; "Customer Terlalu Ramai ini Bulan . Kadang kala tak sempat Angkat telepon Customer. sila memahami. Minta Maaf . SMS boleh diterima."

Laman tersebut juga memaparkan harga ditawarkan bagi setiap gadis yang dilanggan iaitu dari RM 180 hingga RM700 mengikut jam selain gambar wanita dipercayai pelacur turut diletakkan untuk menarik minat pelanggan.

Ketua Penolong Pengarah Bahagian Kongsi Gelap, Judi dan Maksiat (D7) Bukit Aman, Senior Asisten Komisioner Abdul Jalil Hassan ketika dihubungi berkata, Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) menyedari kewujudan laman terbabit di Facebook yang berkemungkinan berpangkalan di dalam mahupun luar negara.

:Katanya, PDRM sedang bekerjasama dengan Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia (SKMM) untuk memastikan kegiatan tersebut tidak terus meluas.

"Setakat ini tiada lagi tangkapan dibuat terhadap individu yang menawarkan perkhidmatan seks di Internet.

1Malaysia people's menu: Cheap but still not enough

Thumbs up for low-cost meal


KUALA LUMPUR: The campaign for the 1Malaysia People's Menu has received overwhelming response from restaurants.

According to the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry, there were now 1,004 restaurants taking part in the programme as at Oct 14.

"We were supposed to achieve the target of 1,000 restaurants by December, but we achieved it three months earlier," he told a press conference after a lunch with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak at Restoran Ukhwah in Lorong Medan Tuanku yesterday.

"The Prime Minister came just to eat. He wanted to taste the food eaten by ordinary folk. He also wanted to find out whether the lunch menu served at RM4 and breakfast at RM2 under the programme were really of quality," he added.
Paying less for more: Najib smiling as he pays for his meal at Restoran Ukhwah in Lorong Medan Tuanku, Kuala Lumpur, yesterday.

Ismail Sabri said Najib's lunch experience at the restaurant also proved wrong the perception of some quarters that cheap food at the eateries were of low quality.

He added that in the peninsula, the restaurants could offer breakfast at a maximum of RM2 and lunch at RM4. In Sabah and Sarawak, it's RM2.50 for breakfast and RM5 for lunch.

Ismail Sabri urged more restaurant operators to take part in the programme and offer food at affordable prices while helping people reduce their financial burden.

Restoran Ukhwah serves a RM1 breakfast menu that includes teh tarik, roti canai and a piece of kuih while the RM3 lunch menu includes a plate of rice with meat and one vegetable dish and a syrup drink.

Asked how the restaurant could maintain its profit at such rates, Ukhwah Cooperatives president Datuk Rahim Baba said they carried out volume selling while offering other menus at regular prices.

Regular customer Ramlee Salleh, 76, said he ate at the restaurant with his wife Zaleha Salleh, 63, and grandson daily to reduce their financial burden.

Ramlee, who has two wives, said he earns RM700 a month as a petition writer and gets a RM400 pension.
"But it is still not enough for us and I sometimes just eat bread," he added.

Well, the last two para of this news are the real 'giveaways', huh.

The poor chap still sometimes just eat bread!

This goes to show how poor the people have been after years of robbing from the Barang Naik government! 

Maybe now with this program running, he will just eat bread, not sometimes but just once awhile. ;-)

Posted: 21 Oct 2011 07:57 AM PDT

Updating my blog has never been this painful before. I am currently in my room at Kingwood Hotel, Mukah, Sarawak and I am not very blessed with stable internet connection.

I will be coming home on Sunday, I really cannot wait because as usual, I miss Azman and Miki so badly everytime I am away on work. I am working on project that gets me to the these amazingly beautiful remote places in Malaysia. I have been to the interior zone of Sabah last month and now I am visiting Mukah, Dalat and Balingian in Sarawak.  The culture, the people, the food is amazing here, I am loving these experiences but yeah I am too homesick! I hope Azman and Miki can join me visit the longhouses at the side of  the huge Rejang river crawling with crocodile tomorrow. But I think tomorrow they will be walking at the mall - boring!

How LGE helps Penangites

Posted: 21 Oct 2011 05:55 AM PDT

This is how Lim Guan Eng's administration gets 'full support' from the Penangites.

1. Imposing a ban on water sports activities on the beaches, no jet-ski, not even a chance to have a boat ride. The reason given was to avoid any untoward incident. Picnickers are only allowed to sit on the beach and build sand castles or Rockets.

2. Demolishing stalls that provide extra income (in most cases, it's the only source of income) in the States, resulting in hundreds of people lost their business. It means the State Government encourages this people to resort to stealing and begging to make ends meet.

3. Disconnecting electricity and water supplies to poor households. Now they have to use candles to light up their homes, pick fire woods (is there any in Penang?) for cooking and and dig up wells for water. They government is teaching them a positive 'austerity' drive.

4. Barring the rakyat from coming to the Chief Minister's office. They must talk to their respective 'wakil rakyat' of the ruling party but this reps are not accessible. They are too busy playing 'balls'.

5. Telling Bloomberg that the Penangites are prospering more under Lim's administration, that he is responsible for developing the State. However, many Penangites are still living in poor condition, including on the island.

Aah! Impressive. Otherwise, there won't be any demo at the Masjid Negeri after the Friday prayers today to express their 'sincere gratitude' to Lim.

He is adorable, don't you think so?

Video-Video Menarik Demo UIA Bantah Penggantungan Aziz Bari

Posted: 21 Oct 2011 08:02 AM PDT

SMM Demo Desak UIAM Tarik Balik Gantung Tugas Aziz Bari

KUALA LUMPUR: Persatuan Solidariti Mahasiswa Malaysia (SMM) akan menghantar memorandum bantahan bagi mempertahankan kebebasan bersuara pensyarah di negara ini kepada Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak.

Solidariti Mahasiswa Malaysia (SMM) mengadakan demonstrasi di perkarangan masjid UIAM sebagai membantah tindakan penggantungan tugas Prof Dr Abdul Aziz Bari. -Foto THE STAR oleh: AZMAN GHANI

Pengerusi SMM, Ahmad Syukri Ab Razab berkata kumpulan berkenaan akan menyerahkan memorandum berkenaan kepada Perdana Menteri yang dijangka mengadakan lawatan ke Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia (UIAM) pada minggu hadapan.

"Kami dimaklumkan Perdana Menteri akan melawat UIAM minggu hadapan, jadi kami bercadang untuk menyerahkan memorandum ini pada masa tersebut.

"Ini adalah satu masalah yang serius terhadap pakar akademik kita. Mereka sepatutnya diberikan kebebasan serta ruang untuk menyuarakan pendapat dalam isu kritikal serta berdebat mengenainya," katanya kepada pemberita pada sidang media yang diadakan di masjid universiti berkenaan pada Jumaat.

Terdahulu, kumpulan SMM mengadakan demonstrasi selepas solat Jumaat di perkarangan masjid UIAM menggesa pihak pentadbiran universiti menarik balik penggantungan tugas yag dikenakan terhadap pensyarah undang-undang, Prof Dr Abdul Aziz Bari.

Ahmad Syukri turut memaklumkan bahawa mereka telah menyerahkan memorandum tersebut kepada kakitangan pentadbiran universiti.

Dalam demonstrasi berkenaan empat orang pelajar telah ditahan kerana didakwa menimbulkan kekecohan.

Ahmad Syukri berkata kumpulan berkenaan akan mengambil tindakan selanjutnya sekiranya pihak universiti masih gagal menangani masalah tersebut dengan segera.

Pada Rabu, unit undang-undang UIAM telah mengeluarkan surat tunjuk sebab kepada Abdul Aziz kerana didakwa mengeluarkan kenyataan yang bertentangan dengan kepentingan universiti.

Surat tersebut dikeluarkan ekoran daripada kenyataannya yang didakwa mempertikaikan titah Sultan Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah dalam isu pemeriksaan Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor (Jais) ke atas Gereja Methodist Damansara Utama (DUMC) baru-baru ini.

Abdul Aziz diberi tempoh sehingga 25 Oktober ini untuk menjawab surat berkenaan dan sepanjang tempoh tersebut beliau tidak dibenarkan memasuki perkarangan universiti berkenaan tanpa kebenaran dekan.

Media sebelum ini melaporkan Abdul Aziz sebagai berkata, tindakan Sultan Selangor untuk campur tangan berhubung isu pemeriksaan sebuah gereja itu bukan sesuatu tindakan yang biasa terjadi.

Menurutnya, sebagai ketua agama Islam di negeri itu, baginda mempunyai hak untuk campur tangan tetapi ini perlu dijalankan selaras dengan ajaran Islam.

Ekoran tindakannya itu, beberapa laporan polis telah dibuat terhadapnya dan bekas Ketua Pemuda PKR, Senator Ezam Mohd Nor turut menggesa supaya Abdul Aziz disiasat di bawah Akta Hasutan.

Pada Rabu, pensyarah kanan UIAM itu telah dipanggil untuk memberi keterangan kepada pihak polis dan disiasat di bawah Akta Hasutan 1948.

Bukan itu sahaja, Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia (SKMM) telah pergi ke pejabat Abdul Aziz Isnin lalu untuk merekodkan kenyataan berhubung isu yang sama. -mstar

Suria Dies

Posted: 21 Oct 2011 06:07 AM PDT

Rosie and Bulat attended Suria's funeral.
Suria's loved ones, relatives and friends all came to mourn and bade her farewell.
It rained heavily that day.
The heavens seemed to be weeping too.

Fortunately, the sun came out smiling before the burial prayers began.
Bulat wept unashamedly.
He looked so dishevelled and his face was ghostly pale.

Rosie knew that Suria was dying.
Suria had been vomitting out blood and her health was deteriorating.

Suria had suddenly called Rosie to visit her at the hospital.
Since Bulat had not answered her calls nor spoke to her for months, Suria did not want to bother him anymore.
And it was Suria's decision that Bulat must not make peace with her just because she was ill.

"Why didn't you tell me you're sick Su?
Rosie inquired tearfully.
I would have come earlier.
Have we grown apart..are you hurt and angry?

"Ros, it doesn't matter.
As long as you and Bu can work things out and be very happy, that is all I wish for..
Anyway, I'm just a bit unwell..I'll be okay soon.
Don't worry alright.."

"Su, the doctor has told me..why didn't you inform me??
I would have done anything for you know how much I love you!"

"Ros..please..please..don't make it hard on me.
If you really do care for me, will you please send my deepest love to Bu.
Tell him..*coughing hard while Rosie massaged her back*..
I will miss him very much and that I thank him for all his kindness throughout these years.

Also, can you and Bu please keep a lookout for my children?
They love you both very much and I know how you and Bu care for them."

Rosie was already crying uncontrollably.
She laid her head on Suria's arm and held Suria's soft hands tightly.
How can she forgive herself?

Bulat did ask nicely for her permission to marry Suria.
Naturally, she did not wife who loves her husband would want to.
However, she lied by telling Bulat that she did not mind.

Worst still, Suria had frankly asked Rosie whether she had agreed with Bulat's intention.
Her quivering voice that day confirmed Suria's suspicions of how Rosie truly felt.
From that moment on, even Rosie had avoided Suria.

"Ros, be patient with Bu.
He is the most wonderful person in the whole world.
He'll come to love you very'll see!
Take good care of him okay Ros..for me?"
And please ask him to forgive me."

When Rosie left that day, she did not know that it was going to be the last time she would see Suria alive.
For Suria passed away peacefully the next morning.

They were late for only about 10 minutes.
Rosie had brought Bulat along.

They had walked hurriedly to see her.
Rosie had brought some oats cereals and a fresh bouquet of sweet-smelling flowers for Suria.

Bulat nearly collapsed when he saw Suria's freshly covered dead body.

As he cradled her gently in his arms, with rivers of tears, he kissed her still warm cheeks and forehead for the first time.

He wailed.."Su! Su! Su!! Why must you leave me! Su! O Su!
Wake up sayang! Please wake up!!

Bulat gradually turned into an extremely broken hearted man.
Suria's sweet glowing face upon her death, and his memory of her beautiful laughter haunted his remaining days.

Though he lived on for a few more years, his cheerful heart disappeared the day Suria refused his proposal the second round.
And his reason to live came to a standstill the day she closed her eyes for eternity..

The End

p.s. Ending okay?

Don't Be A Big Loser - Why You Should Say No To Quick Weight Loss

Posted: 21 Oct 2011 05:24 AM PDT

Patience. It's the one thing you never seem to have when you've got a body fat problem. You want the fat gone and you want it gone now! And why not? It seems so do-able. Everywhere you look, you read and hear promises of quick weight loss and you even see people losing weight quickly. We have reality TV shows that actually encourage people to attempt "extreme" body makeovers or see who can

Does Hypnosis Work For Weight Loss?

Posted: 21 Oct 2011 05:21 AM PDT

Hypnosis conjures up images of a bearded man with piercing black eyes and a mesmerizing deep voice swinging a pendulum back and forth, chanting, "You are getting very sleeeeepy." Hypnosis is terribly misunderstood and the only exposure to hypnosis most people will ever have is a Las Vegas stage show. But stage hypnosis for entertainment and hypnotherapy for behavior change are completely

Does Cold Weather Make You Store Body Fat?

Do you get fatter in the cold weather? It's a good question right now, considering that this year's farmer's almanac is predicting a frigid winter. It's FREEZING here in New Jersey and we just got dumped with 3 feet of snow! Some of my friends up in the great white yonder think that temps in the 20's are balmy. Yeah right.

We've all been at the holiday get-togethers, and have quickly devoured something devilishly delicious with little thought. Some feel little shame for eating a cake or drinking half the bowl of punch, but others find themselves feeling guilty afterwards and can't help but think, "oops, I shouldn't have eaten that." I have to admit I do get a little chuckle out of the "accidental"
