Oprah Winfrey As one of the most successful talk-show hosts in the world, there is no question that Oprah needs to maintain her physical appearance for her millions of audiences. Known as one of those celebrities who are constantly battling weight gain, she has recently toned up her figure and has never looked figure in age 50 by combining a regular exercise regime and diet plan. Oprah works out five days a week, spending 30 minutes on the threadmill and doing free weights. Her eating plan consists of legumes, fish, nuts, fruits and vegetables, chicken and dairy products that are lowfat. She limits her consumption of white sugar and flour. Oprah also credits her trim figure to her habit of not eating anything after seven in the evening.
4. Gwyneth Paltrow A lot of people may find it hard to believe that the perpetually slim Academy award-winning actress actually needs to diet. Gwyneth actually follows a healthy eating plan that resembles Oprah’s, avoiding sugar and white flour. She usually follows a macrobiotic diet, eating foods like vegetables, brown rice, and lean meat. She also eliminated dairy from her diet, and does yoga everyday.
5. Madonna The pop star known as the Material Girl has always flaunted a body that is to die for, and has become a true fitness paragon over the years. She keeps herself in tip-top shape by having Ashtanga Yoga, and follows a strict diet that mostly shuns junk foods. She adopted a macrobiotic eating plan that includes organic foods rich in lean protein.
6. Claudia Schiffer The bodacious German supermodel eats salad and steamed vegetables for dinner and eats only fruits before the afternoon. While on locations, she prefers to eat black grapes and drinks tomato juice and herbal tea.
7. Christie Brinkley Long-time supermodel maintains her all-American good looks by being a vegetarian. She does not keep junk foods of any kind inside her home to make sure that she does not eat them when cravings occur. She snacks on sweet potatoes in place of candy bars, and she adopts a liquid juice diet when she needs to slim down fast.
Celebrities are just like ordinary people. They need to maintain their figures just like anyone else, and there is more pressure on their part since they are constantly in the public eye. Ordinary folks can have celebrity-like bodies, too, and by following these diet and fitness plans, they can also look like red-carpet worthy.

While it is ideal to have a spacious room for your home cinema, you can still enjoy the best home cinema from a smaller room in a quaint home. The trick is to use the features of your room to blend with the home cinema; the electronics should fit in comfortably with the rest of the settings.
Here are some suggestions on how to enjoy the best home cinema in a room that does not look like a spacious lounge.
The Dimensions Of The Room
Do use a rectangular room, and don’t use a square room. The room should be longer than it is wider for a home cinema not to completely dominate the room.
And just as you don’t want the room to be a square, you don’t want it to be a cube either, so ceiling height is also something to consider. The height of the room, from floor to ceiling, should not match the length of the room.
Reduce or Eliminate Unpleasant Bouncing Sounds
Do use a rug or carpet, and don’t use a bare floor, even if it is nicely laminated or has beautiful floorboards. This time the reason is not aesthetics, but functionality. Bare floors will bounce the sound, while rugs or carpets will absorb sound comfortably and you will not hear a strange humming sound as you watch a movie.
Similarly, add thick curtains to the windows. Again for the same reason. You don’t want the windows to reverberate when watching your show. Thick curtains that block out the light will add another dimension to your viewing pleasure.
Finally, if you can, change the door. By choosing a fire proof door, you will eliminate audio problems created by a vibrating door.
Be Selective About Your Technological Choices
While a 7.1 system is more impressive than a 5.1, and dynamic mode creates bright and compelling images, these choices in home cinema will have an overpowering effect on the total ambiance of the room. In other words, you are overdoing the electronic stimulation. Just as you want the physical home cinema to blend in with the size of the room, so, too, you want the cinematic effects to be pleasant, not jarring.
Bigger Is Not Always Better
Sound is important to pull you into the movie, but big speakers are not necessary at all. You can get the same sound effects with five small satellite speakers and a subwoofer.
Don’t keep your TV more than 15 degrees from eye height; for example, if you have a flat screen, you should not put it on a mantle piece. Having the screen too high will eventually cause a crick in your neck.
Dressing up Contemporary Capalets
Capelets are the popular choices that are most adored by girls that you will also love the most. You will come to be a dazzling princess look. The gorgeous flare will quietly suit close at your elbow. The fabrics of capalets is made from real phantasm that will provide a coating in your strapless dress.

There is only one effective way to get children actively involved with speech and motor Apraxia, and this is by engaging them in fun speech therapy activities. However, before you even begin to help your child with language articulation activities, you have to be in the right frame of mind.
It would be counter-productive if you are stressed, impatient, and thinking of other things at the same time. Thus, for the language activities to work out well between you and your child learn to set aside a specific time that’s just for this purpose. Make it a date between you and your child and treat the time as special bonding hour that will create beautiful memories for you and your child.
Here are some fun language therapy activities that you can start under the supervision of a qualified therapist, and then branch out on your own at home. Remember what the purpose for the language activities are, focus on that, and not just having fun. Also do not be a stickler for how long your child should be doing the activity, otherwise it becomes a chore instead, and he will not be motivated to do it again.
Speech Therapy Activities Part 1
Using PECS or Picture Exchange Communications System uses pictures as an alternative way of communicating with your child. Naturally, you will need some practice with this because for a child, a picture of a sandwich could mean he’s hungry but not necessarily for a sandwich.
You can go around the house tagging items with a picture and the word spelled out. Eventually, from practice, your child will recognize the word and not just the picture. By then you can take away the pictures and just have word tags.
Speech Therapy Activities Part 2
Use of music to teach pacing and pauses between words. The music therapy is a great way to introduce sounds and how they can be used. It works in conjunction with language therapy activities in many instances because of its universal appeal. There are special CDs for young children with Apraxia that you can buy as part of your language therapy activities at home.
With singing, children with Apraxia can enjoy speech therapy activities by learning how to elongate their vowels.
Speech Therapy Activities Part 3
Why not play Go Fish or the Memory Game using cards as your game tools. Cards are very good as part of your speech therapy activities as well as in helping develop dexterity and hand-eye coordination. These are just 3 language therapy activities that you can do without special tools. It will not work though if you do it a couple of times a month.
There has to be some form of schedule, 5 to 10 minutes a day, to make it work.
Many people I know believe that in order to be truly artistic a person has to be an artist. They must paint, draw or take brilliant photographs to have artistic talent. While These traits may make someone an artist, I believe that it takes something entirely different to be artistic. It is possible for literally anyone to live in ways that are artistic.
One of the most important aspects of being an artistic person is to be confident in yourself. Lack of self-confidence does not get anyone very far in living creatively. Look for positive qualities about yourself and dwell on those. If you think you are good at a particular activity you should practice it to become even better.
Think about the things you love to do most. I suggest that you can be artistic doing just about anything. Whether you love to sew, cook, or play soccer, you can do things in a way that is artistic and intriguing.
One of my favorite things to do is garden. I used to not think much about the way that I arranged or tended my garden. However, recently I have begun to see gardening in a whole new way. I have realized that I can arrange my flowers and plants in creative ways. I can care for them with tenderness and help them to grow to their highest potential. I have learned that being artistic is more about perspective than it is about what is actually being done.
Being artistic is all about seeing the world creatively and allowing yourself to do the things you enjoy and enjoy the things you do. Consider how you can do your favorite things in new ways. Think about how preparing a meal can become more than just cooking food. Look for ways to incorporate beauty and fine detail into your food and into your presentation. Being artistic is about going a step further than what is typical. If you love to play a sport, look for ways to play that sport with energy and grace. Almost anyone can hit a volleyball over a net, but few people can do it in a way that looks unique and graceful.
You will never be artistic in anything unless you are enjoying yourself. Don’t take life too seriously, but instead, look for ways to have fun and relax no matter what the circumstance.

VOICEOVER ARTIST RADIO STATION IMAGING
by David Kaye
I do a lot of radio imaging.
Many people call it “Radio Station Imaging,” or as I like to call it, “Promotional Branding and Station Identification.”
In this realm of the business, it is important to make sure that you’re set up as a proper company, that you’re a business. It is not a fly-by-night deal by any stretch of the imagination.
You’d better have the equipment. You’d better be prepared to work a lot and take care of your voice, because radio stations like to use you a lot.
In a contract, traditionally you’re committed to recording a page or two a month, whatever your agent negotiates, or whatever you negotiate for yourself. They’ll stretch that out. They’ll try to get as much as they possibly can out of a page. So radio station voice imaging is little bits and pieces and stuff and there is a page and stuff.
Typically, on a Monday or Friday a bulk of stuff will come in. That’s just the nature of the business.
The business has changed over the years, especially because of the Internet. There’s not as much money flowing around as it used to be. Some of the big companies are changing hands. We all know how that’s gone. The economy is different. But stations are still spending money on station voices. They are still going out and searching for them.
When someone listens to the radio station, in their head they’re hearing the imaging person the voice as the owner. If you’re hired to be the voice of a radio station, you’re that station’s identifier. You represent that station. It is a big responsibility. It’s not just, “You know, I do the voice.” No, that’s the sound of the station. So think of yourself as the radio station’s boss.
So if you’re going to be voicing stuff for radio stations, note that, first of all, the business has changed. There are even more opportunites now because there is satellite radio. There still are revenue stream issues, but if you want to get into it there is places you can put your voice. There are Internet radio stations.
You can do a lot of marketing on your own on the Internet to radio and TV stations. But be prepared to be a business. You’re a businessman. They want to hire you. They want you available. They want you versatile, and there is a certain style you need to keep in mind.
There are perimeters to being a radio imaging voice. So that means listening to what’s out there now, listening to what’s out there in the past, and maybe developing your own style…but within the perimeters. You’re selling the station. You are the station’s voice. That’s a big responsibility.
Reiki is a very ancient form of healing which originated in Tibet and was re-discovered and further developed by a Japanese monk named Dr. Mikao Usui. It is a natural hands-on method of energy balancing for the purpose of stress reduction and relaxation.
Reiki therapy can be used for many conditions and situations. It is especially useful in helping infertility because it is safe and gentle. It helps you reach a deep state of relaxation where you become receptive to receiving healing, thus allowing physiological and emotional changes to take place within your body.

Reiki treatments. Some of these benefits include:
reduced levels of stress

can help to maintain good reproductive health that is beneficial for both men and women. Also, because stress is often linked to fertility problems, Reiki therapy can be beneficial in cases in which stress is contributing to problems

Reiki treatment sessions. In addition, the study found that quality of sleep is improved by 86% when
Reiki treatment is conducted during pregnancy.

Skin cancer that is non-melanoma can be easily and more importantly effectively be treated with BEC5 which is also branded as Curaderm. BEC5 Curaderm cream is particularly powerful when spread over Basal cell carcinomas. Consisting of a specially purified plant extract means BEC5 Curaderm is successful on Basal cell carcinomas ( BCC ) or Squamous cell carcinomas ( SCC ) which are the most widespread forms of skin cancer. Curaderm cream applications are also effective on benign tumours such as age spots, Keratoses, sun spots and Keratocanthmoas.
Taken from Solanum Sodomaeum this is a plant that is discovered in Australasia. This plant includes an important extract – Solasodine Glycosides. This is an active ingredient that is also discovered in smaller quantities in the eggplant and aubergine salosodine Glycosides and has been established as being very effective for treating cancerous skin conditions. As a result it is incorporated into BEC5 curaderm cream. BEC5 curaderm cream is a renowned sun spot cream, age spot cream that treats skin cancer at the source. Regressing non-melanoma skin cancers It is calculated that more than 80,000 people have applied BEC5 cream, with numbers continuing to grow as a lot more people are trying non-invasive treatment. Clinical trials carried out in Great Britain and Australia have investigated and established BEC5’s power to treat and regress skin cancer that is non- melanoma. One particular study showed how 72 patients being treated with curaderm BEC5 cream ended in the regression of all treated lesions that included 29 SCCs, 39 BCCs and 56 actinic keratoses. Within 1 to 13 weeks of treatment they were healed 100%. Recently 10 UK hospitals discovered how using BEC5 cream twice a day was able to offer total remission to 78% of the patients in as little as 8 weeks. The remainder 22% of patients had improved but required a slightly prolonged treatment time of 13 weeks. This was all made easy without radiotherapy, surgery or chemotherapy.
Royal London Hospital dermatologists have cited the efficacy of BEC5 curaderm cream as being -safe and effective’ skin cancer treatment along with being a perfect therapy for outpatient treatment. This is thanks to BEC5 being affordable and versatile. Approximately 95% of skin cancer are not the Melanoma type and eliminate the need for invasive and expensive operations. For both secondary and primary skin cancer this is proving a highly practical treatment.
Dumbo the elephant had really big ears that he used to fly with. When you think of Dumbo, you think of ears. However, some people also have big ears and, unfortunately, theyre not happy with the way they look. This is reinforced by kids on the playground who call them Dumbo, after that fictional elephant. There is an answer, however. If you have big ears and are tired of being compared to a flying elephant, you should seek out the services of a cosmetic ear surgeon.
Cosmetic ear surgery is a very popular surgery because many people are unhappy with how their ears look. Either theyre too big or too small, they hang down to low or maybe they stick out too much. Cosmetic ear surgery can be the answer for those who hate going out in public because theyre afraid people are staring at their ears.
Do Your Research
Make sure that you research both the surgery and the doctor before you have the surgery performed. You should have realistic expectations. Cosmetic ear surgeons arent miracle workers but they can improve the look of your ears if youre unhappy about them. You should research the doctor to make sure he or she is qualified to perform cosmetic ear surgery. Sometimes, doctors will call themselves cosmetic surgeons when theyre not really qualified, or certified, at all. There are many people out there who would gladly take advantage of someone who desperately wants change, no matter if they know what theyre doing or not.
However, this, of course, isnt the case for every cosmetic ear surgeon. Just do your homework. Look for examples of previous surgeries that that particular surgeon has performed before and seek testimonials. Once youre sure about the doctor, schedule an exam.
At your initial exam, your cosmetic ear surgeon will examine your ears and will hear what you have to say and what exactly you dont like about them. Sometimes, the doctor will determine that your expectations are unrealistic or that your insecurities are mainly all in your head. In cases such as these, the doctor will often refuse to perform the surgery. However, if the doctor thinks that the surgery can be performed to your satisfaction, then its time to schedule the surgery appointment.
Cosmetic ear surgery is for those who are unhappy with their ears. Big ears may have worked for a fictional elephant but they have no place in todays self conscious world. Seek a cosmetic ear surgeon and get that pair of ears youve always wanted.
