With more an more people turning to healthy eating there is always going to be those that go to extremes. Women desperately trying to look good by losing weight are always at risk of developing Anorexia Nervosa through excessive dieting. Women aren't the only sex at risk as more and more men are developing Anorexia Nervosa too.
Anorexics see themselves as obese no matter how much they weigh or how thin they look in the mirror. Sadly, they can't see themselves as anything other and refuse to seek help or accept it when offered, and simply diet until, for 10 to 20 percent of Anorexia Nervosa suffers they eventually die from related complications.
Most sufferers are often perfectionists that can be very strict with themselves and set high and unrealistic goals that will not lead to anything other than failure. Often what leads to this behaviour is a lack of control in some other part of their life. They realize that they can gain some control back or the power they feel from being in control of at least one part of their life, by dieting. This slowly turns into an obsession as they self monitor their food intake and their weight, as they gain satisfaction from finally being in control of something.
This obsession or focus on constant monitoring of calories and weighing themselves helps them block out unwanted feelings and emotions. So it can be seen as a symptom of possible mental health problems, especially around self-esteem or what I prefer to refer to as self-acceptance. This need for control doesn't help them as they live in denial and refuse to seek help basically because they don't feel they deserve the attention and most feel they don't deserve to eat: this tying into problems with self-acceptance.
However bleak the picture painted in this article so far, remember that the majority of Anorexia Nervosa suffers do not succumb to the illness and help is at hand…...

...MS-13 final MS-13 History and Origins The Mara Salvatrucha gang originated in Los Angeles, in the 1980s by Salvadoran immigrants in the neighborhood between Pico and Wilshire also know as the city's Pico-Union neighborhood. They immigrated to the United States Due to a 12-year civil war in El Salvador, which resulted in over 100,000 deaths and over a million refugees(www.ms13gang.com). The Salvadorian refugees and immigrants predominantly settled in southern California and Washington, D.C. Some of the refugees and immigrants had ties with La Mara, a violent street gang from El Salvador. Others had been members the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMNL) during the El Salvadorian civil war(Rimmer, 2009). FMNL was made up of Salvadorian peasants who were trained as guerilla fighters. Many were adept at using guerilla tactics and working with explosives, firearms, and booby traps. Salvadorians were not accepted into the Los Angeles Hispanic community, and were frequently targeted by local Hispanic and African American gangs notably the 18th street gang. Due to this suffering, in the late 1980s, some refugee members of La Mara and FMNL formed what is now known as the Mara Salvatrucha (MS) street gang. Like many other street gangs, MS initially formed for protection, but quickly developed a reputation for being organized and extremely violent criminal enterprise. The gang’s rivals took note. One, known as the Mexican Mafia, or “la eme” for short, and is one of...

...and maintained by defining the date the project begins. This includes any planning or initiation activities. By setting the start date, we can better estimate how long a project will take. Set the task type to “Fixed duration” to facilitate project schedule development and consistency. Understanding task types is very important. MS Project defines three task types. The task type determines how MS Project calculates duration, work, or hours and resource unit assignments. Setting the wrong task type will cause MS Project to recalculate schedules incorrectly. Next, uncheck the new tasks or effort-driven checkbox. When you’re just starting a project, you should always uncheck this box. It helps to facilitate planning and the initial work. Now, uncheck the split in progress tasks checkbox. Normally, task progress will either be zero or complete with no other value. It is very important to uncheck this box. Next, uncheck the box next to “Tasks will always honor their constraint dates.” Sometimes, a task is started earlier or later than originally planned. By clearing this option, tasks that are started earlier will be moved by MS Project to the earlier start date. Finally, select the “Set as default” button for the changes to take effect for all projects. Next, I’m going to select the calculation tab and make sure that the checkbox next to updating task status updates resource status has been checked. If it is not, be sure to select it.

...Objectives - MS Project 2010 * Creating a summary task * Working with subtasks * Establishing task dependencies * Specify lead and lag times A project task list can be as few as 10 or as many as several hundred tasks. With a large project, it can become difficult to locate a specific task. Using MS Project, you can organize the task list by creating a hierarchical structure. This process of structuring a task list is known as outlining. Outlining is used to organize common tasks into groups within the task list. The groups can represent phases of the project. In this lab, we will first use outlining to group the tasks of our project into phases. We will create a main summary task to represent the entire project and then several levels of summary tasks below the main summary task to represent the phases of the project. Creating an Outline 1. Log onto Windows. Open MS Project. 2. Open your project file that you created in Lesson 1, Part A (MyLab1a_XXX.mpp, where XXX are your initials.) 3. Save this file, using Save As, as MyLab1b_XXX.mpp, where XXX are your initials. Creating a hierarchical outline organizes the project tasks list into groups of tasks. Each group of tasks is preceded by a summary task, which describes the tasks within each group. The outline of a project generally begins with a main summary task. The main summary task is a brief description of the project and all tasks are subordinate to the main......

...Bible Among the Myths Malcom College English 093 Ms. Smith 01/23/2012 Introduction The book is an analysis of the Biblical view of the world and compares it other works in the Ancient Near East of that time with the development of the Bible. This is done by an in-depth analysis of the underlying beliefs inherent in mythology and the Biblical text. Of primary significance is the author's portrayal of the Biblical insistence on monotheism and divine transcendence compared to the polytheistic underpinnings of mythology. The author compares the ethically based Biblical view of the divine/human relationship with the ritualistic and magical view of that relationship found in mythology. With these and other comparisons (and with due consideration given to the various similarities between Israel and her neighbors), the author gives an excellent overview of the subject matter of the thought. In The Bible Among the Myths,Oswalt takes the conversation further by illuminating the fact that Israel's faith couldn’t have simply evolved out of nowhere. Oswalt shows that the surrounding Ancient Near East cultures had a worldview known as Continuity. This view maintained that all things that exist are a part of each other (such as the gods, nature, and humanity), the existence of polytheism, that the gods could be manipulated through nature and natural artifacts(which was the point of idol worship), the significance of magic, the obsession with fertility which led to......

...Identifying Resources available for Children with Multiple Sclerosis and their Families Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable disorder of the central nervous system. Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease in which the body, through its immune system, launches a defensive attack against its own tissues and can range from relatively benign to somewhat disabling to devastating as contact between the brain and other parts of the body is disrupted. MS affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other effectively. The initial symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis are often blurred or double vision, poor contrast, eye pain, red-green color distortion, or even blindness in one eye. Most people with MS experience muscle weakness in their extremities and difficulty with coordination and balance. These symptoms may be severe enough to impair walking or standing. The worst cases of MS can produce partial or complete paralysis. Most people with MS also show par aesthesis, transitory abnormal sensory feelings such as numbness, prickling, or “pins and needles” sensations. Some people may also experience tremors, pain, dizziness, hearing loss and speech impediments. Many people with MS experience cognitive impairments such as difficulties with concentration, attention, memory, and poor judgment but such symptoms are usually mild and are frequently overlooked. Depression and anxiety is another common feature of multiple sclerosis. ......

Ms and Diet

...Sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that affects the Central Nervous System. There are multiple ways to treat the symptoms of MS but none more important than diet. Paying close attention to one’s diet plays a major role in improving living with MS. When I was diagnosed with MS making changes to my diet made noticeable improvements in daily functions.               Multiple Sclerosis(MS) is a disease that attacks the Central Nervous System(brain and spinal cord). The cause of MS is unknown but it is believed that environmental factors along with being genetically predisposed may trigger the disease. MS impedes signals to and from the brain which affects many bodily functions. MS is known as a immune- mediated disease, meaning that it is part of a group of diseases that don't have a “trigger” but go through inflammatory passages and lead to inflammation. More specifically MS causes the immune system to attack the myelin sheath around the nerves and the nerves themselves. The bodies T- cells, white blood cell that plays a central role in searching out and destroying objects marked as harmful to the body, carry out the destruction of the myelin sheath. Myelin is a protective fatty coating around the nerves in the Central Nervous System. Once the myelin sheath or nerve is damaged the disrupted signals lead to symptoms. There are various symptoms for MS which include any of the following: Fatigue, numbness/ tingling, weakness, vertigo, sexual dysfunction, pain,......

Ms and Pregnancy

...MS and pregnancy The diagnosis of MS should not prevent you from becoming a parent but for this purpose it is very important to consult your doctor and your family. MS affects people who have or are planning to start a family, but more often women than men. This raises many questions about causal relationship between MS and pregnancy. Although, many years ago, women with multiple sclerosis are advised to avoid pregnancy that their condition would not worsened, but today we access different insights. Studies conducted over the past few decades have shown that the symptoms of multiple sclerosis can be alleviated or even disappear during pregnancy. The analysis of works that report about 13 144 women with MS revealed the following data: * MS has no effect on pregnancy. * No increase in negative symptoms nor for mother nor for the child. * Woman with MS can expect a normal pregnancy and normal delivery. For all these reasons, women with MS, especially those with mild neurological deficits, should be encouraged to become pregnant as soon as possible due to the progressive flow of the disease. It is important to break down some of the prejudices that exist and women provide the necessary information: 1. Does MS affect on the fertility of women? 2. Does MS affect on pregnancy and the baby's health? 3. Is it possible to apply spinal or epidural anesthesia during childbirth? 4. Is it recommended breastfeeding and is it safe? 5. Does......

...MS Project Familiarization Ida Casey Dr. Kimberly Malone-Haddox BUS 375: Project Management October 18th, 2015 At first, I thought the MS Project is very difficult from a user standpoint. I felt that using the MS Project is very time consuming. As I was trying to navigate them the system, I found that I was focusing more on the actual system them inputting information. Considering that I do have a lot of experience with man of the MS office programs, I thought this program would be similar to that. I feel that if I had more tutorials where I am taught then have a quiz or even a step-by-step guide then I would feel more comfortable using it. Overall, it is a great program, but it still think that I would be able to use MS Excel to perform these tasks in MS Excel instead of MS Project. I do feel that with a little more that MS Projects is very easy and simple to use. You just have to get used to the program and take your time. I’m actually very excited about using the program now because this would help me gain some experience on implementing practice and assessments so I would be more confidence using it. But after doing a little research, I did find its purpose and why it was created for the business professional world. Two challenges that I foresee using MS Project in this course would be doing the projects accurate and actually navigating through it. When it comes to navigating through the program, it is difficult due to the extra steps when in the other MS office......
