THE HATED ONES: RUNNING WITH THE HUNTED BY RYAN FU
There is always been two sides to every story but usually when it comes to Hollywood, the media only shows one side of the story. The Hated Ones by new writer, Ryan Fu, shows the other side of the Hollywood scene. The entertainment industry is worth billions of dollars, which people want protect their valuable image but they can’t control the public, who want to know what they are doing in their daily lives. In comes the wolves of Hollywood, the paparazzi, who are willing to do anything to get that coveted shot that might be worth thousands of dollars. The Hated Ones is a collection of stories and poems from celebrity photojournalist, Ryan Fu, who was been in the industry for the last ten years. It’s a brand new perspective from the other side of the lens showing a different light to the entertainment industry. The story follows Ryan from his rough upbringing in the streets of Los Angeles to his time in the military fighting terrorists, then finally hitting the streets of Hollywood hunting world famous celebrities.

According, to CNN, Two years after she underwent a double mastectomy to cut her cancer risk, actress and U.N. envoy Angelina Jolie has had surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes.
Jolie, 39, carries a mutation of the BRCA1 gene, which sharply increases her risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Her mother was diagnosed with the latter at age 49 and died seven years later.
But a blood test that revealed worrying markers accelerated the process, the Hollywood star said. Her doctor told her he wanted her to see a surgeon immediately to check her ovaries.
What are your thoughts on her decision? Would you do the same thing if you were in the same position?
You think you may be safe in your own home. But, there are many items in your home that could cause you to develop cancer.
Our home is supposed to be our sanctuary, but we are being invaded by cancer-causing chemicals. There are many carcinogens that find their way into our homes without us even knowing about it through dyes, shampoos, rubber, plastic, perfumes and more. With the times constantly changing, there are more dangers in some homes than there is outside.
This is to inform you of the things that you could possibly have in your home that could be causing you cancer. They may seem the be safe, but don’t judge a book by its cover. Those smells good perfumes may smell pleasant, but you won’t be saying that from the hospital bed.
- Candles: The CPSC, Consumer Product Safety Commission, performed a study that confirmed that 40 percent of candles contain lead wires inside the wicks. Manufacturers use lead to make wicks firmer because fragrance oils soften waxes. According the CPSC, a candle that contains lead – core wick releases five times the amount of lead that is considered hazardous for children. Children being exposed to high amounts of lead can result in learning disabilities, hormone disruption, behavioral problems and other health problems.
- Air Fresheners: There are so many different kinds of air fresheners right now it is ridiculous. These air fresheners have volatile organic compounds, toxins, and carcinogens like phthalate esters in the formula. A study was released that found 13 common household air fresheners contain chemicals that can affect reproductive development and aggravate asthma.
- Antiperspirants: Conventional antiperspirants and deodorants contain several ingredients linked to virulent cancers. Antiperspirants and deodorants are designed to stay in the body for hours, this allows harmful chemicals to get deep into the skin.
- Art supplies: There are certain art supplies like rubber cement glue and Epoxy, acrylic solvents and paints, and permanent markers contain chemicals linked to organ damage, cancer and allergies. Children are really vulnerable to toxins because of their under-developed immune system and higher metabolisms, so pay extra attention to the products they use.

This week the sports world was shocked to hear how Chris Borland, a former linebacker of the San Francisco 49ers decided to retire from professional football following his rookie season at the age of 24, citing concerns about his long-term health and the potential effects of head trauma. He is only the latest in a list of players under the age of 30 who have retired in the last week.
It made me think because I’ve had several concussions playing sports and fighting during my lifetime. I wondered about the long term effects of having one or many concussions. Here is a video explaining the health effects of Concussions and a video of Key & Peele about Football Concussions just to light up the mood.
Give us your opinions about athletes retiring early because they fear the long term health effects from concussions?

For a chemist we are nothing more than four bottles of chemicals, each with its unique structure, set of properties, made from ordinary things like hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, carbon and phosphorus.
For a physicist we are a nexus of nature’s forces delicately balancing and juggling billions of balls of those chemicals creating an unprecedented display of nature’s forces.
For an artist we are long pliable strings interwoven into tapestry of nature’s intricate origami.
For an engineer we are miniature but spectacular scaffoldings, frail enough to collapse under our own weight but yet strong enough to hold the weight of all civilizations known to mankind.
For a writer we are letters of the alphabet, cryptic letters used to document history, history of individuals, history of species, history of life.
For a biologist we are nature’s instruction manuals, step by step directions to not only make our own copies, but to line up tiny molecules, weave them into threads, making materials for walls and membranes to divide and conquer the life into manageable chunks like cells, organs and bodies.
We carry instructions to build pipes and pumps to set rivers of molecules in motion, rivers that carry the raw materials, finished products and waste products to where they belong.
We tell bodies how to make switches, swatches, registers and circuits to gather, to compute and to process information that is essential for bodies to make timely decisions, decisions to mate, decisions to eat and avoid being eaten.
We carry instructions to build and run factories for harvesting, packaging and burning energy, energy to generate power and move the bodies around. We make bodies immerse in cocktails of emotive chemicals that incite pain, pleasure, desire, love, hate, fear, anger and disgust.
If that is not enough to leave you dumbfounded, we bring this to you without any foresight, we have no thinking ability, no brains whatsoever and we have been doing this for billions of years, we fought against all tyrannies of nature, we are not tired yet and we will continue to chug along and empower this information continuum for generations to come.
We are the relics of your past, melodies of your present and seeds of your future.

LIVE WITH COMPASSION
Compassion is one of the most revered qualities in Buddhism and great compassion is a sign of a highly realized human being.
Compassion doesn’t just help the world at large, and it isn’t just about the fact that it’s the right thing to do. Compassion, and seeking to understand those around you, can transform your life for a number of reasons.
CONNECT WITH OTHERS AND NURTURE THOSE CONNECTIONS
In Buddhism, a community of practitioners is called a “sangha”. A sangha is a community of monks, nuns, laymen, and laywomen who practice together in peace towards the united “goal” of realizing greater awakening, not only for themselves but for all beings.
One of the most powerful points on this list, the power of simply living in a way that you’re fully awake to every moment of your life pretty much couldn’t be exaggerated even if I tried.
To live deeply, in a way that you become keenly aware of the precious nature of life, is to begin down the path of true peace and happiness.
CHANGE YOURSELF, CHANGE THE WORLD
Buddhists understand that you can hardly help another before you help yourself. But this isn’t referring to you gaining power or riches before you can help others, or living in a way that you ignore others.
This is mostly referring to the fact that because we’re all interconnected, by you helping yourself you create an exponentially positive effect on the rest of the world.
Death is an often taboo topic in Western society. We do everything we can to not only avoid the subject, but pretend that it doesn’t even exist.
We should all strive to work and make our living in a way that’s more “conscious” or aware. This generally means not selling harmful items such as guns, drugs, and services that harm other people, but it goes deeper than that.
There’s ultimately two aspects to this: making a living by doing something which doesn’t inhibit your own ability to realize peace and making a living doing something which doesn’t inhibit others ability to realize peace.
This is a difficult point to put into so few words, but a profound one I felt would be greatly beneficial to mention nonetheless.
To realize non-attachment in a Buddhist sense doesn’t mean to abandon your friends and family and live alone for the rest of your life, never truly living again just so that you don’t become attached to these desires.
