4 Ways to Help Your Family Lose Weight

Trying to help your family lose weight? Here are four tips to help them fight the fat, and keep it off for good.

1. Set an example:
"Kids model their parents—they learn healthy, as well as unhealthy, behaviors from them," says State University of New York at Buffalo psychologist Leonard Epstein, PhD, a pioneer in family-based obesity prevention. Telling a child to go out and get some exercise is far less effective than asking him or her to join you for a bike ride.

2. Set goals: Consider having everyone in the family sign a healthy-living contract. In the short term, don't focus on weight loss. Instead, have everyone agree to specific daily goals, such as recording a certain number of steps on a pedometer.

3. Use nonedible weekly rewards, says Daniel S. Kirschenbaum, PhD, clinical director of Wellspring weight loss programs. A small gift or a few dollars—or even allowing a child to have a friend sleep over—will help reinforce the importance of working toward specific goals.

4. Sit down for a family dinner: Kids who do this at least five or six nights a week are a third less likely to be overweight than children who never eat dinner with their families, according to a 2006 University of Alabama study. Other research shows that kids who eat more family meals consume less fried food and artery-clogging trans fat and saturated fat. Get started with quick, easy recipes for the whole family.

The Male Brain: What's Really Going On in There

Man washing a car

Is he truly incapable of putting down the toilet seat? Can he really have passionate sex and not even think about calling you again? We go exploring for answers.

The more science learns about how men are different from us (right down to the structure of their brains), the more we find ourselves hoping it will finally explain some age-old mysteries. For instance:

Why do men keep their cars spotless but live like pigs at home—while for women it's the other way around?

According to Simon Baron-Cohen, PhD, author of The Essential Difference: Male and Female Brains and the Truth About Autism, men's neurological wiring tends to make them better at systems, while women are superiorly rigged for empathy. Which could help explain why—although the culture is changing—guys still take such pride in their machines, while women often care more about maintaining a clean home. Another clue comes from a 2007 study (conducted for BMW by a British team that included Oxford psychologists), which found that male drivers actually view their cars as extensions of themselves. Women, whose self-image is tied more directly to their bodies, are likely to think of their vehicles as separate entities, the authors suggest. But because men are less tuned-in to their bodies, they easily project their identity onto an object. If only that object were a sink full of dirty dishes.

Why do men like to watch violent sports, while a good number of women would rather do almost anything else?

The truth is, football has a lot of female fans (44.3 million women watched the 2009 Super Bowl, for example). But guys are drawn to football (and boxing and wrestling) in ways that women aren't. Men tend to be more aggressive, says Lucy L. Brown, PhD, a professor in the departments of neurology and neuroscience at Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. The difference likely involves hormones (like testosterone) and sensitivities to those hormones in parts of the brain such as the hypothalamus—which, in animals, is associated with aggression. Fine, but does he really have to shriek "Kill him!" when the other team's quarterback is about to get sacked? Yes, he does: If you're a guy, watching your team win increases testosterone levels, according to a 1998 study in Physiology & Behavior. Viewing combative sports also helps men identify with traditional ideals of masculinity like domination, risk taking, and competition, explains Douglas Hartmann, PhD, associate professor of sociology at the University of Minnesota. "In fact," he says, "the less physically competitive his daily life is, the more sports can become a means toward achieving those ideals, at least in his mind."

Why can a man enthusiastically (very enthusiastically) sleep with a woman he knows he'll never see again?

Well, there's the old Evolution Did It theory: Men are hardwired to spread their seed; women, to find a mate who will protect the children she may bear. Physical differences may play a role, too. According to Lisa Diamond, PhD, an associate professor of psychology and gender studies at the University of Utah, not only do female rats have more extensive brain circuits for oxytocin—which helps mammals to bond—than males but in humans, women show greater release of the neurochemical during sex (especially orgasm) than men. Also, biological anthropologist and Rutgers University professor Helen Fisher, PhD, notes: "The two brain hemispheres are less well connected in men than in women. This gives men the ability to focus on one thing at a time and be very goal oriented, whereas the female brain is built to assimilate many feelings at once, and to connect sex and love much more rapidly." Interesting, plausible theories all, but Lucy Brown cautions that we're still really just guessing. And in the end, the fact that men forever remain a bit of a mystery may be part of what keeps us intrigued.

Membangun Semangat Jiwa Wirausaha...Hayooo

Cina bisa maju itu karena disokong oleh para pengusaha. Sebuah negara yang maju karena disokong oleh para pengusaha yang berpikiran maju.

Peran pengusaha dalam sebuah negara tidak bisa dinafikkan, sebab para pengusaha lah yang membayar pajak, membuka lapangan kerja yang kemudian berimplikasi pada kemajuan ekonomi suatu bangsa.

Jika melihat Indonesia saat ini baru memiliki kurang lebih 400.000 Pengusaha atau 0,18 persen dari penduduk Indonesia. Padahal, untuk bisa maju secara ekonomi suatu negara membutuhkan minimal dua persen untuk dapat menggerakkan pertumbuhan ekonomi. Oleh sebab itu, upaya menambah jumlah wirausaha harus jadi perhatian serius.

Saya dalam beberapa kesempatan selalu menyarankan agar para mahasiswa jika sebelum masuk kampus terlebih dahulu diperkenalkan dengan dunia kampus, maka sebelum keluar kampus ia terlebih dahulu diperkenalkan dengan dunia usaha.

Kita mendatangkan para pengusaha lokal yang terbaik, untuk memberikan tips tentang bagaimana memulai usaha. Kita tidak perlu mendatangkan konglomerat untuk menjadi pembicara, karena mereka akan berbicara dengan sangat makro dan membuat para mahasiwa yang baru akan memulai usaha akan bingung.

Cukup kita panggil pengusaha UKM saja, bagaimanapun para pengusaha besar semunya memulai dari UKM, tidak ada pengusaha yang langsung menjadi besar kecuali “pewaris”.

Untuk itu bagi teman-teman yang ingin menjadi pengusaha, tidak perlu malu untuk menjadi pengusaha kecil, karena semua pernah menjalaninya. Tidak perlu khawatir masalah modal, yang terpenting adalah “ide”.

Sebab menjadi pengusaha adalah menjual ide, nanti ide yang akan mendatangkan modal. Dengan 3 Prinsip untuk memenangkan persaingan yakni ;Lebih Cepat, Lebih Baik dan lebih Murah. Itu kuncinya untuk bisa memenangkan persaingan. Di mana pun di dunia ini.

Nah untuk menjadi pengusaha, kuncinya cuman dua, berani memulai dan berani mengambil resiko. Seseorang yang ingin bisa berenang kalau hanya membaca teori tentang berat massa dan berat jenis, tidak akan bisa mengapung tanpa mencoba menceburkan diri ke kolam. Mungkin awalnya mulai dari pinggir dulu, sering minum air karena kelelap, tapi percayalah nanti juga akan bisa.

Begitu kira-kira untuk menjadi pengusaha, kalau hanya baca buku tentang teori ekonomi dan entrepreurship tanpa berani memulai maka jangan harap bisa menjadi pengusaha. Harus berani memulai itu kuncinya. Jangan harap bisa mengendarai sepeda kalau takut jatuh.

Menjadi pengusaha juga harus punya banyak akal. Itulah sebabnya kenapa saya lebih suka disebut sebagai saudagar daripada pengusaha. Karena saudagar yang berasal dari bahasa sansekerta memiliki makna seribu akal. Dalam artian seorang pengusaha harus berani melakukan Inovasi dan memberikan nilai tambah.

Saya teringat dengan perkataan Pak Habibie beberapa waktu lampau bahwa 1 Ton besi akan beda nilainya apabila ia dibentuk menjadi pesawat daripada menjadi mobil. Meski menurut saya hal tersebut tidak begitu tepat karena ternyata mobil Kijang Toyota yang dijual oleh NV. Hadji Kalla lebih laku daripada CN 250 yang dijual oleh PT. Dirgantara. Ini karena ia tidak menganut prinsip lebih murah.

Sementara mobil Jepang lebih laku karena ia Lebih Baik, Lebih Cepar dan lebih Murah. Terlepas dari itu semua memberikan nilai tambah pada suatu produk adalah sesuatu yang penting. Harga 1 Kilo Kakao berbeda dengan harga 1 Kilo Silverqueen atau Tobleron.
