Facebook, Myspace, and Xanga: Why All 3 Are a Danger

Social networking websites run rampant in the big world of the World Wide Web and there are many legitimate uses that a person can have for all three of the major websites, like Facebook, Myspace, or Xanga. Unfortunately, not everyone does have good intentions, but instead there are those people who carry the concept of social networking to feed their own habits. A couple examples of this is stalkers finding an innocent teenager to stalk and prey on, rapists who look for adolescents to commit their next crime, and others who only use social networking websites as a way to continue statistics of crime-ridden America.

Age Restrictions

There are age restrictions to using Myspace and you cannot have a Facebook account while in junior high. The age restrictions for Myspace, however, include not being able to create an account unless you are at least 14 years old. On the other hand, Facebook’s Terms state that users can use a Facebook account if they are 13 years of age or older and in high school. The age requirement for Xanga is also 13 years old.

Safety Precautions

Myspace –

Even though Myspace automatically makes a user’s account “private” for children under 16 years old, they do have a glitch in the system. For a child under 16 years old, no one can add that user as a friend until they input some personal detail, like their email address or last name, about the child they’re trying to add. That might stop a predator from adding a child under 16 years old to their friend list, however, it does not stop them from messaging the user under 16 years old. Therefore, users on Myspace can be threatened, harassed, stalked, and otherwise preyed upon through the use of the Myspace messaging system.

Facebook –

Facebook does not have any safety precautions when it comes to the safety of children under 16 years old. Furthermore, Facebook’s terms state that children under 18 are not allowed an account unless they are in high school. How many children begin their high school career at 13 years old? Not many, but this is not to say that 13 year olds cannot have Facebook accounts and falsify the information they pass along to Facebook to say that they are in high school. Facebook wouldn’t necessarily have to verify the teen’s account, nor would they have enough time to do so. In order to get information about instagram safety, then a check can be made at the https://lightninglikes.com site. All the necessary information will be provided to the person. 

Xanga –

Probably the worst of the three social networking websites when it comes to safety precautions for young children, Xanga allows children who are at least 13 years old to have a Xanga account. They don’t even require them to be in high school as Facebook does. Of course, Xanga does state in their Terms of Service that Xanga is not to be used to harm or stalk anyone else. However, this doesn’t prevent the meeting of young children and predators, pedophiles, and stalkers. But Xanga admits and even states that they have no responsibility to filter or monitor any of the content that is put on their website.

At a time when an adolescent is developing physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, it is not a time to introduce things and websites that could potentially cause harm to them. Parents definitely need to be on the lookout if their child is using these social networking websites for anything inappropriate or if they have reason to believe that their child is being stalked, harmed, or preyed upon in some way. The safety of adolescents is definitely not left up to these social networking websites themselves, so parents need to do all they can to protect their children when social networking!

UFC 143 Nick Diaz Vs. Carlos Condit

Most of the UFC’s fighters are respectful, even-tempered and professional. And I think that’s the way it should be. But every once in a while, it’s kind of refreshing to see a fighter who acts like, well, a fighter. Nick Diaz apparently grew up in a pretty tough neighborhood and learned to fight out of necessity, rather than as a way to compete or make money. He’ll be headlining Ultimate Fighting Championship 143 when he fights Carlos Condit.
More MMA: UFC 144 Edgar vs. Henderson

For some reason, the UFC has been slow to announce the entire card, so we’ll only look at a couple of bouts. Before we go further with Diaz vs Condit, let’s look at the the second most anticipated matchup, Josh Koscheck vs. Mike Pierce.

Josh Koscheck has this “villain” image to him, which to be honest, I don’t get. He may have come off as a bit of a jerk on the original Ultimate Fighter, but that was a long time ago, and it was a reality TV show. He definitely doesn’t seem to be Mr. Nice Guy, but I don’t see why he apparently continues to be disliked by many. Regardless, he’s a good fighter.

Mike Pierce is not exactly a big name, but he’s only lost to top level fighters while in the UFC. Unfortunately for him, his wins aren’t exactly against top level guys. And Koscheck is a top level guy. So using that simplistic logic, Koscheck should win. Koscheck does once in a while surprisingly get knocked out in a fight he’d be expected to – and probably otherwise would – win, and that’s the only way I see Pierce winning. But that’s unlikely, so I’m going with the obvious choice, Koscheck. I haven’t been able to find any betting lines in this one.

Back to the main event, Nick Diaz vs Carlos Condit. Again, I like Diaz for his badassedness, but I also like him for his skills. It’s not hype when they talk about his cardio, he’s got a strange but effective punching style, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone with such impressive ground defense. He’s also the former StrikeForce champ. And he fought a bunch in the UFC years ago. The betting lines have him at around -150.

The problem is, he didn’t face very tough competition in StrikeForce. And his prior UFC record wasn’t that great. Nice win against BJ in his return, but BJ has rarely been impressive past the first round in welter weight fights. And I’m a BJ fan. At least I used to be. Diaz is a good fighter, but I think the hype might be a little excessive.

Carlos Condit’s streak might be shorter, but his wins are bigger. He had the WEC belt, which is more impressive than the Strikeforce one. I see Condit winning this one. And since the betting lines have him as the underdog at around +120, that’s a pretty easy bet.

As always, let’s hope for a great night of fights.

The Disney Vault

I recently heard that Sleeping Beauty would be returning to the Disney Vault again soon. This makes me sad. I happen to love Sleeping Beauty and unfortunately hadn’t had the chance to pick up a copy during its short stint outside of the Vault. I can now only hope that she comes back out again before I have children so that I may acquire a copy for them before she is banished back inside the Vault for the rest of eternity.

I understand the theory of the Disney Vault. In fact, it’s an ingenious marketing tool. I probably could care less about Sleeping Beauty, and would have forgotten about her completely had she not been locked up in the Vault, kept from me, and then released for a short time only. This scared me. I knew if I didn’t purchase the DVD immediately there would be an indeterminable period of time where she would be unavailable and I would have no way of knowing when the Disney gods might give her back to me again.

I imagine that this same mindset plagues many Disney fans, and is the exact reason Disney continues to thrive off of movies made years ago. The bigwigs at Disney know exactly what they’re doing to us; there is an enormous sense of urgency to have these movies when they are released from the evil grip of the Vault. Good for them.

But it makes me wonder… what the hell goes on inside of the Disney Vault??? Yes, I believe it is a real brick and mortar place, and yes I believe there are thousands upon millions of Disney classics stacked to the ceiling. But I also believe there’s a little bit of magic going on inside of the Disney Vault. If I could take a vacation to anywhere in the world, it would NOT be Disney World… but to the Disney Vault. Its door is shaped like Mickey Mouse’s head for goodness sake!!

Here is a list of things that I firmly believe goes on inside of the Vault:

1. The Disney Princesses definitely live largely inside of the Vault when they’re not being pimped out to the public for a limited time only. Not only do they live inside, but they are good friends. They lunch together, gossip, drink cosmos and get mani/pedis in their spare time. Cinderella is clearly the Carrie Bradshaw of the group. They take turns talking trash on Snow White because she lives with seven small men, think Jasmine wears extensions, and Ariel has had a boob job. FYI…The Real Housewives of the Disney Vault would have made a much better show than the chicks from Atlanta.

2. The Princes play poker on Thursdays, bowl on Fridays, and golf on Saturdays. Yes, they have all of these things inside the Vault. No, they’re not as charming out of the public eye…especially after a couple of rounds.

3. Obviously Mickey Mouse is Mayor of the Disney Vault. The people generally love him but he’s up to his ears trying to stay out of the press by keeping Minnie out of the liquor cabinet.

4. It’s common knowledge that Jiminy Cricket and Tinkerbelle have an illegitimate love child.

5. There is a community swimming pool. There is also a problem… it’s made up of gold coins… and only Scrooge McDuck (Chairman of the Disney Vault Board) can swim in it.

6. There is a county jail as well. The Beast is the warden. There are individual cells for Captain Hook, Jafar, and Maleficent. Ursula is unfortunately in solitary confinement.

7. Belle runs the local library, and with the exception of seeking donations for fundraising events doesn’t make a habit of cavorting with the other Princesses.

8. The Fairy Godmother and Genie were finally married a year ago. They live happily at the edge of the vault in whatever creation they can think of and conjure up on any given day.

9. There is a town square… and you can bet there is an enormous statue of Walt Disney in the center of it. He’s like Kennedy to these people.

10. After trying a few times with no success, Donald and Daisy Duck deciding not to have children after all. Much to the community’s and juvenile court systems appreciation, they decided to legally adopt Huey, Dewey and Louie instead.

I know it’s farfetched but you have to agree that these lovely characters must be doing something when they’re banished inside of the Disney Vault for years at a time. Something to pass the time until Mickey announces at the monthy town hall meeting who will be the next to leave briefly and make Disney millions? Right?

The Approach to Effective and Permanent Weight Loss

According to American Sports Data Inc, one in three Americans are obese. The danger in being obese is an increased risk of coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes, to name a few. Thankfully, attaining effective weight loss is possible and easy. Just follow this easy weight loss guide to lose two to four pounds a week.

Exercise

Regardless of how much you eat, the secret to losing weight is increasing your physical activity. Start with small increases in activity. Take the stairs at the office instead of the elevator. You may not notice the difference immediately, but the increase in caloric consumption by your metabolic system is nearly tripled when you take the stairs instead of the lift. Do this five times a week, and in the long run, you will feel the difference.

After increasing your simple activity, move towards incorporating some additional exercise into your lifestyle. Once again, start slow. You can begin by taking walks around your neighborhood, or your local park. By adding about two 45 minute workouts into your week, you can increase your resting metabolism – which will increase your calories burnt even while you are not exercising. This increase is key to helping you attain visible weight loss results.

Finally, once you have gotten into the swing of exercising at least two times a week, you can increase the intensity of your workouts, increase the duration or frequency of your workouts, or try different activities to keep yourself active. You can graduate from walking to cycling, jogging, or any other intensive cardiovascular activity. For those of us who work in offices, stair climbing is a good option for a quick lunch hour workout. If you have the time, you can also try increasing the duration ad frequency of your workouts. Remember, the minimum duration of an effective weight loss workout is 45 minutes. The maximum you should go for is double of that; an hour and a half. Lastly, try out different activities to keep yourself active. Physical activities are not limited to jogging and swimming. Try water skiing or rock climbing, for example, to create some adventure in your weight loss exercise routine.

Controlling your food intake

By controlling, I do not mean reduce. To lose weight, you merely have to control your diet by eating “healthier” foods. When presented with a choice of meals, always opt for the healthier one. You may be surprised a how delicious some “healthy” food tastes. As a general guide, when in doubt, look for the “healthy” section in the menu. Many restaurants have begun to incorporate these healthy diet foods into their selection.

Try to maintain a balanced diet of staples (potatoes, bread, pasta etc), meat or fish and vegetables. The mistake that many dieters make is that they overindulge in one type of food group. The secret to losing weight and leading a healthy lifestyle is eating right. For example, if you have already ordered a burger, do not order fries because there is already a bun in the burger. Instead, ask for greens. In the same situation, why not get a Diet Coke instead of a Mountain Dew?

Track your progress

If the only weighing scale you use is the one in the gym, it is time to buy one for yourself. One way to check that you have achieved permanent weight loss is to track your weight over a period of a month. You should do this by weighing yourself once a week, and recording it in a logbook. Then, watch as your weight decreases over time. Do not be discouraged if you don’t seem to lose weight immediately. These dieting tips are designed to help you lose weight in the long run. It is not a fast diet that yields immediate, but temporary, results. Rather, it is a proven method of reducing weight permanently.

Additional Help

In addition to the above, it is a good idea to invest some money in a couple of slimming products. These products have varied effects, and most do not work for everybody. But on the off-chance that it might work for you, a $30 investment is not too much. Try some slimming pills, or if you are adverse to taking them, try slimming tea. The most ideal slimming product should be targeted at increasing your metabolic rate.

Here are a couple of good websites to help you find slimming pills and slimming teas:
