My boyfriend just had a health checkup at work and has high blood pressure (32 years old). He is overweight and not active. Already vegetarian but I'm trying desperately to convince him to go vegan. He needs the facts but I'm not sure what articles to show him. Do you have any recommendations?
The rise in blood pressure is a response to a sick body—the blood pressure goes up as a natural and proper adaptation—as an attempt to compensate for a plugged up cardiovascular system. After years of consuming the rich Western diet, the blood vessels develop blockages referred to as atherosclerosis, the artery walls stiffen, and the blood itself becomes viscous. All this change creates a resistance to flow, resulting in a decrease in the ability to deliver nutrients to the tissues. ~ Dr. McDougall
“A survivor’s guide to being a muzzled scientist.”
Get a personal e-mail address, start your own blog and make sure there are multiple copies of your datasets. “Get anonymous, get online. Let people know what’s going on,“ Rennie says. “Folks that are in academia, that have tenure, that have a bit more job security and have more of an ability to speak their mind can help those in the public service that are challenged with these situations.”
“Disservice is too mild a word” to describe the effect of this muzzling, says Steven Campana, a shark scientist who spent 32 years working for Canada’s Department of Fisheries and Oceans:
“It’s a cheat for the taxpaying public because it’s the taxpaying public that is funding this government research. When that research leads to very positive things, or even if it’s negative, the people that paid for it deserve to hear about it.”

After 32 years in the House of Representatives, here is my advice on how people opposed to President Donald Trump’s assault on our basic values — a majority of those who voted last November — can best influence members of Congress.
Done the right way, communications from citizens can have a significant impact on legislators, even when they claim to be immune to “pressure.” (“Pressure,” in legislative jargon, is the expression of views with which legislators disagree, as opposed to “public opinion” — the term used for sentiments that reinforce their own.)
The key to doing it right is being clear about the goal, which is to persuade the Senator or Representative receiving the communication that how he or she votes on the issue in question will affect how the sender will vote the next time the legislator is on the ballot.
This means the following:
Make sure you’re registered to vote — lawmakers check.
Many office holders will check this, especially for people who write to them frequently. Elected officials pay as much attention to those who are not registered to vote as butchers do to the food preferences of vegetarians.
Lawmakers don’t care about people outside of their district.
You can only have an impact on legislators for or against whom you will have a chance to vote the next time they run. In almost all cases, this means only people in whose state or district you live. Senators or representatives whose names will not be on the ballot you cast are immune to your pressure. There is a small set of exceptions — representatives who want to run for a statewide office in the next election will be sensitives of voters throughout their states.
Your signature — physical or electronic — on a mass petition will mean little.
You are trying to persuade the recipient of your communication that you care enough about an issue for it to motivate your voting behavior. Simply agreeing to put your name on a list does not convey this. I have had several experiences of writing back to the signer of a petition to give my view on an issue only to be answered by someone who wondered why I thought he or she cared.
The communication must be individual. It can be an email, physical letter, a phone call or an office visit. It need not be elaborate or eloquent — it is an opinion to be counted, not an essay. But it will not have an impact unless it shows some individual initiative.
Know where your representative stands.
If you have contact with an organization that is working on this issue, try to learn if the recipient of your opinion has taken a position on it. When I received letters from people urging me to vote for a bill of which I was the prominent main sponsor, I was skeptical that the writer would be watching how I voted.
Communicate — even if you and your representative disagree.
On the other hand, even where you are represented by people whom you know oppose you on an issue, communicate anyway. Legislators do not simply vote yes or no on every issue. If enough people in a legislator’s voting constituency express strong opposition to a measure to which that legislator is ideologically or politically committed, it might lead him or her to ask the relevant leadership not to bring the bill up. Conflict avoidance is a cherished goal of many elected officials.
Say “thank you.”
If your Representative and Senators are committed to your causes, you should write or call to thank them — not frequently, but enough for them to feel reinforced.
Enlist the help of friends in other districts.
Your direct communication with legislators outside your voting area will have no impact. But you do have friends, relatives, associates etc. Find out who the potentially influenceable legislators are on issues of prime importance to you, think about people you may know in their constituencies, and ask those who share your views to communicate with those who represent them. On an extremely important issue, get out the list to who you mail holidays cards or important invitations and ask them to communicate with their legislators.
To repeat the essence of point 5, if a legislator who you might have expected to vote differently — e.g. a Republican who votes no on a Trump priority — votes as you have urged, send a thank you.

Hey WoW RPers, this is for you! I realized how often I need to crack open my visual guide to help people with timeline answers, so I figured I would upload the full thing as images. It was released during MoP so it ends there, but we’re in about Year 32 as of my posting this (assuming WoD took a year).
and thanks to @hamabee. hannah, i honestly couldn’t have done this without you. from the very idea of it through to individual scenes and just general support, none of this would have happened without you. your art is absolutely incredible, your talent is endlessly inspiring and i can’t thank you enough for coming on this months-long journey with annabeth and i. i love you.
It starts and ends with this: “Together.”
Annabeth stares at Percy, and Percy stares at Annabeth.
They’re searching for something that they aren’t even sure exists anymore. They’re so unrecognisable now that they’ve started to forget who they were, before.
She feels his fingers twitch in hers, registers that she’s probably holding his hands too tightly but acknowledges that she doesn’t want to let go just yet. She’s sitting in his lap, their hands clasped between them, and both of them are crying.
She knows that he doesn’t want to let go yet, either. Because once they let go, it’s done. They are done.
Annabeth takes a deep breath, one that rattles her very bones, feels her heart beating wildly in her chest, feels her stomach churning and her mouth going dry. She licks her lips.
Percy watches, and she thinks about kissing him. You know, to say goodbye.
Instead, she closes her eyes. She counts to ten, and then she tells herself to be brave. She opens her eyes.
Gods, he looks as sad as she feels.
Which is part of the problem - maybe the whole problem, actually. Together was what had gotten them through Tartarus, what had given them the strength to claw their way out and then to keep on fighting through everything that had come after.
But they’re out, now, back at camp and physically safe and yet all they seem to do is keep dragging each other back down there.
We’re not coming as fighters, but as protectors,” said the 32-year-old marine corps vet, noting that he was concerned about police escalating tactics. “Our role in that situation would be to simply form a barrier between water protectors and the police force and try to take some of that abuse for them.”
Since last fall, police have made roughly 700 arrests, at times deploying water cannons, Mace, rubber bullets, teargas, pepper spray and other less-than-lethal weapons. Private guards for the pipeline have also been accused of violent tactics.
“We have the experience of standing in the face of adverse conditions – militarization, hostility, intimidation,” said Julius Page, a 61-year-old veteran staying at the vets camp.
Dan Luker, a 66-year-old veteran who visited Standing Rock in December and returned this month, said that for many who fought in Vietnam or the Middle East it was “healing” to help water protectors.
“This is the right war, right side,” said Luker, a Vietnam vet from Boston. “Finally, it’s the US military coming on to Sioux land to help, for the first time in history, instead of coming on to Sioux land to kill natives.”
1. The story is really good. You’re seeing a character (Yuri) who is really struggling with self worth, confidence and skill in the first episode and to overcome this and attempt a comeback within one season of Figure Skating competition. It is compelling. Both my 63 year old father and 7 year old kid are sold on this story just as much as my 32 year old self.
2. The characters are really good All the characters have depth. Yuri especially has great character development but Victor does as well and so does Yuri’s main Rival (also named Yuri) who I thought I would hate but I love him. Even though I want Main character Yuri to win in the end I still really like other Yuri as well. That is I think a great accomplishment.
3. The animation is really good Now it’s not perfect and there are certainly times when I think it could be a bit better but on the whole I think the quality is high. Even down to the reflection in the ice when they skate. It feels like a lot of time was put into it.
4. The music is really good Seriously the music adds so much to the show.
5. It’s gay as hell By this I mean it’s not like Yaoi. The relationship between the two main characters isn’t exploitative or for purely for titillation. It’s a real romance. The moments that have the fanbase screaming about how beautifully gay it is are grounded in genuine moments of character development and story building. These are human, romantic moments between the characters. Yes there is fanservice naked butt shots but it’s not all the time.
There isn’t really any jokes about it either (other then the fact that even the background characters are clearly going “These guys are in a relationship”)
Yuri on Ice is un-apologetically and openly gay. It is one of the gayest things I have ever seen and so far it doesn’t seem like anyone is going to die and it’s so awesomely open about it.
At 32 years old, Cristiano Ronaldo has one of the most impressive collections of collective and individual titles in football’s history:
1 UEFA Euro Cup 3 UEFA Champions League titles 3 Premier League titles 1 La Liga title 3 FIFA Club World Cup titles 2 Copas del Rey 1 FA Cup 2 English League Cups 2 UEFA Supercups 1 Spanish Supercup 2 English Supercups
4 Ballon D’ors 4 Golden Boots 2 UEFA Player of the Year awards 1 FIFA Player of the Year award 1 FIFA The Best men’s football player award 1 FIFA Puskás award 1 UEFA Best player award 1 UEFA Forward of the year award Elected player of the Century by the Portuguese Football Federation
Even more impressive than the list above is the fact that the portuguese is the only football player in HISTORY to have ever won every major collective and individual title in TWO different clubs from TWO different leagues.
listen, I’ve got hella dry skin, cellulite, i weigh 190lbs, my boobs are 36B, and a tooth that grew in behind my other teeth which makes it look like i’m missing a tooth all together.
despite all of this, I’ve got three boys after my ass. I’ve rejected 32 men in 4 years, (8 men a year). I made $20 selling chocolate one night off of ONE guy because he though I was cute. I once saved my parents 10 euros on souvenirs (+ a free bracelet) in Italy because the shop owner thought I was beautiful.
what I’m saying here is; you can have traits that may be considered undesirable. but there will always be someone out there who finds them, and you as a whole, enchanting.
shoot for the moon my gals (and make as much money as you can while you’re getting there)
