Iraqi Woman Beaten to Death in California, Hate Crime Suspected - Yahoo! News

Sigh.

My heart goes out to those poor children on the loss of their mom. May they catch the asshole(s) who did this and give them hell.

Photo ID to be required for fall SAT, ACT exams

Photo ID to be required for fall SAT, ACT exams

All students taking the SAT and ACT college entrance exams this fall nationwide will have to provide photo IDs on their applications in a major security upgrade prompted by a widespread cheating scandal in New York's Long Island, the Associated Press reports.
Given what a burdensome and expensive process obtaining a photo ID in this country is clearly this is nothing more than an effort to suppress minority participation in college entrance exams.

Or am I getting my dog whistles mixed-up again?

People who make the sorts of remarks you do on that issue are missing the point of it. My understanding of that issue is that people don't have a problem showing ID, period. The problem seems to lie more in what SORT of ID is considered acceptable/unacceptable. Student IDs wouldn't be acceptable in some areas, but gun licenses would be, for instance, or something like that. That would be where people are having issues.

Is it constitutional to force someone to purchase an ID?

Brides-to-be looking to shed that final 10, 15 or 20 pounds in order to fit into their dream wedding gown have taken a controversial approach to crash dieting that involves inserting a feeding tube into their noses for up to 10 days for a quick fix to rapid weight loss.

The K-E diet, which boasts promises of shedding 20 pounds in 10 days, is an increasingly popular alternative to ordinary calorie-counting programs. The program has dieters inserting a feeding tube into their nose that runs to the stomach. They're fed a constant slow drip of protein and fat, mixed with water, which contains zero carbohydrates and totals 800 calories a day. Body fat is burned off through a process called ketosis, which leaves muscle intact, Dr. Oliver Di Pietro of Bay Harbor Islands, Fla., said.

"It is a hunger-free, effective way of dieting," Di Pietro said. "Within a few hours and your hunger and appetite go away completely, so patients are actually not hungry at all for the whole 10 days. That's what is so amazing about this diet."

Di Pietro says patients are under a doctor's supervision, although they're not hospitalized during the dieting process. Instead, they carry the food solution with them, in a bag, like a purse, keeping the tube in their nose for 10 days straight. Di Pietro says there are few side effects.

"The main side effects are bad breath; there is some constipation because there is no fiber in the food," he said.

Slipping into a wedding gown for a dream wedding is a moment of truth for most brides, but as many say that there is a real fear that it will not quite fit. That's how Jessica Schnaider says she felt with a June wedding approaching and 10 pounds she says she couldn't lose. She was desperate for a quick fix.

"I don't have all of the time on the planet just to focus an hour and a half a day to exercise so I came to the doctor, I saw the diet, and I said, 'You know what? Why not? Let me try it. So I decided to go ahead and give it a shot," she said.

Schnaider said she was never hungry throughout the 10 days she was on the K-E diet, but admits that it still wasn't easy.

"It was emotionally difficult, the 10 days of not eating," Schnaider said. "And sometimes I had to give excuses to people who were asking are you sick? And I was like, 'No, I'm not sick, I'm not dying, I'm fine.'

"I was tired. I didn't feel like exercising. The doctor told me that if you can compliment with walking for a half an hour on the beach, that would be great, but I didn't feel like doing that. I'm a very energetic person, but those days I was a little tired."

Although the K-E diet is new to the United States, it has been around for years in Europe. Dr. Di Pietro charges $1,500 for the 10-day plan, and says the before-and-after pictures sell themselves.

But critics warn that losing too much weight too fast can be dangerous, and it ultimately won't last. Di Pietro warns that people with kidney issues should avoid the diet.

Many doctors also say that with so much pressure on brides to be perfect, it's easy to understand why this kind of rapid weight loss might seem appealing, but might not be healthy.

"If you lose the weight too quickly your mind is not going to be able to catch up with a newer, skinnier you," psychoanalyst Bethany Marshall of Beverly Hills, Calif. said.

Schnaider says that in her case she actually only kept her tube in for eight of the 10 days, skipping the last two because she'd already lost the 10 pounds she wanted.

She has kept it off so far, saying she is looking forward to her big day this summer.

Johannesburg (CNN) -- South Africans woke up on Wednesday morning to the claim that a group of Soweto youths had filmed themselves raping a 17-year-old girl believed to be mentally ill.
The cellphone video is said to have gone viral among school kids in the township south of Johannesburg, and the term #rapevideo was trending on Twitter in South Africa on Wednesday.
The Daily Sun, a local tabloid, reports that it alerted the police after a concerned mother whose daughter was watching the video handed it over to the paper on Tuesday.
"The mother of a teenage girl saw the horrifying pictures and confiscated her daughter's phone. A work colleague of the woman said they recognized some of the boys and advised her to take the video to Daily Sun," the newspaper reported.
The suspects, aged between 14 and 20, were arrested Tuesday morning and charged with kidnapping and rape, police spokesperson Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said.
"The video is very bad. The men can be clearly identified as they take turns raping and filming her," she told CNN.
The girl's mother reported her missing on March 21, Makhubela said.
Media reports suggest the police initially failed to open a missing persons case but that they have since done so.
Police suspect the girl was kidnapped and turned into a sex slave.

...........................................................................................................................................

The station reports that the gang of men promised the girl 25 cents for her silence.
"The girl can be heard pleading with the boys to stop. They crudely jest and crassly spur one another on," journalist Mandy Weiner reported.
NGOs estimate a woman is raped every 26 seconds in the country.

why not just have the test taker leave their thumb print on the exam form.

and then they can do audits,

if someone is paid to take a test for someone else, and they leave 100% positive proof with their thumb print, both participants should face severe consequences.

is this more or less disgusting than:

lypo-suction sugery, by-pass surgury, lap-band, morbid obesity?

I don't get the whole "I have to suddenly drop 5 sizes for my wedding" thing, but I'll admit, 20lbs in 2 weeks? Oh yeah I'd go for that if I could! My problem is that I've *gained* weight and my mind hasn't caught up with THAT! I wonder what is the real science behind it? I didn't think it was possible to lose weight that quickly even if you ate nothing.

I think the key may be ketosis.

Ketosis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I have loss 20 pounds by a strict caloric intake, at 1200 calories per day.

I think if I was at 800, I would not have lost it in two weeks. I did do it fairly quick, there is a record of it over in the Weigh in here >>>>>>>>>> thread.

For me, more. To resort to something that they put severely ill and dying people on, people in a vegetative state- in order to fit into a frigging wedding dress. Supreme state of vanity and obsession. If that was me I'd rather go buy an off the rack regular dress and get married in that than put myself through that, and make that the focus of starting off my marriage. A marriage isn't about a lavish one day production. Ask Kim K. On second thought...

That whole bride and wedding stuff is just way off the scale of normal. It gives me the creeps, actually. I'm not into that kind of demanding or wanting to be the center of attention or princess for a day. A beautiful dress, sure. I love wedding dresses and looking at them, just the aesthetics of them. But I wouldn't risk my life and my health or my sanity for it. If I'm too fat to be an acceptable bride well that's just too bad.

I wonder if the same results can be achieved by just *eating* 800 cals of fat, protein, and water a day? Then it's no different than any other fad diet or weight loss program. Not that I'm considering it I've just never heard of it before and it sounds too good to be true (I'm talking about the actual weight loss, not the supposed mental/emotional repercussions). Is it really life threatening?

The truth of matter is that most couples start their exercising regimen like one month before their wedding date.

This is not enough time to lose weight and have the body figure wished on time, let alone getting married is no longer something considered effective in today's world.

Did you read this in some Cosmo poll?

I don't think it is possible, again the key is ketosis, this is related to the Atkins diet, reduction of carbohydrates, causes fat to burn off much quicker

a few years back I loss 20 pounds by eating about 1200 calories a day
it took 3 months, some of us posted our weight loss in here
