Gavin McInnes, Fox News Guest, Says Women Are Less Ambitious And Happier At Home – What are your thoughts on his comments?

According to the Huffingtonpost, Fox News guest declared that the gender pay gap exists because women are “less ambitious” than men and that most would be happier staying at home with children.

Gavin McInnes, a writer and former co-founder of Vice Media, made the inflammatory comments Thursday evening while on “Hannity” along with attorney and Fox News analyst Tamara Holder.

“Women do earn less in American because they choose to,” he said. “They would rather go to their daughter’s piano recital than stay all night at work, working on a proposal, so they end up earning less. They’re less ambitious.”

“What?” replied an incredulous Holder.

“This is sort of God’s way — this is nature’s way — of saying women should be at home with the kids,” he said. “They’re happier there.”

“If you were a real feminist you would support housewives and see them as the heroes and women who work wasting their time,” he told her.

“Why am I sitting here?” Holder asked at one point.

“You’re making a mistake,” he responded. “You would be much happier at home with a husband and children.”

Even host Sean Hannity did a face palm at that comment. “Oh boy,” he said, laughing.

“Sean, this isn’t funny,” Holder said.

McInnes has a history of making misogynistic comments. Earlier this year, he said on “Hannity” that women shouldn’t go on spring break because they “aren’t as strong as men — they can’t even hold their booze as well as men.”

And in 2013, he said on HuffPost Live that feminism has made women less happy, and being in the work place has made them miserable.

“Women are forced to pretend to be men. They’re feigning this toughness,” he said. “They’re miserable. Study after study has shown that feminism has made women less happy. They’re not happy in the work force, for the most part.”

Train, Eat, Rest & Repeat – Reasons why Dehydration is causing you to be Sick & Fat

7

11-reasonnnsss-1050x603

Adverse effects from not drinking enough water include digestive, skin, bladder and kidney problems, fatigue, and even headaches. We need water as much as the air we breathe in! Keeping your body hydrated is not a joke.

Did you know that dehydration actually sets in just before you start feeling thirsty? Sipping water throughout the day is the best way to handle it. Always have a bottle or a glass of water handy! If you’re not a morning person, having two glasses of water right after you wake up will boost up your blood pressure to normal levels, and it’s way healthier than having your first coffee on an empty stomach.

Many of us believe that merely drinking fluids like sweetened juices, soda or tea will hydrate you as well as water does. This is not true. It’s actually the opposite! To deal with the excess sugar and salt you are taking in your body wastes immense amounts of precious water just to clean it out from your system. And if you love your coffee, make sure to drink one extra glass of water for every cup you have.

Drinking water regularly speeds up your metabolism and makes you feel more ‘full’. You will eat less once you start drinking more! It’s the safest and healthiest way to lose weight. Drink up!

Morgan Freeman loves Marijuana, wants it to be Legalized across America – What are your thoughts on Marijuana?

9

morgan

The Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman has called for the legalisation of cannabis “across the board” and spoken of his own positive experiences using the drug for pain relief.

Freeman, 77, was badly injured in a 2008 car accident which shattered bones in his left arm, shoulder and elbow. He told the Daily Beast that marijuana was the only substance which helped.

“My first wife got me into it many years ago,” he says in an interview with The Daily Beast. “How do I take it? However it comes! I’ll eat it, drink it, smoke it, snort it! This movement is really a long time coming, and it’s getting legs—longer legs.”

Freeman, 77, was in a car accident seven years ago that left him with nerve damage in his left hand. He wears a compression glove to prevent blood pooling.

He points to the glove. “Marijuana has many useful uses,” he says. “I have fibromyalgia pain in this arm, and the only thing that offers any relief is marijuana.”

He adds, “They’re talking about kids who have grand mal seizures, and they’ve discovered that marijuana eases that down to where these children can have a life. That right there, to me, says, ‘Legalize it across the board!'”

He continues: “And what negative effects does it have? Look at Woodstock 1969. They said, ‘We’re not going to bother them or say anything about smoking marijuana,’ and not one problem or fight.”

Case of the Mondays – Things to Eliminate From Your Life Immediately

5

elimn-700x360

1. Negative people.

I think it’s important to keep people in your life who hold your feet to the fire and want to see you achieve your dreams and be the best person you can be. There’s a solid difference between those kinds of people and negative people. Negative people think you’ll fail because they don’t trust you. Negative people don’t even really want you to succeed.

2. Caring about your mistakes.

Learning from your mistakes is crucial for growing and preventing those mistakes in the future, but don’t get hung up on it.

3. Worrying about the past.

Similar to caring about your mistakes, don’t sweat the past. It happened. You can’t go back in time.

4. Your self image.

I used to have real self image problems, but I didn’t fix it by forcing a more positive image on myself. I just stopped having a self image. It’s been incredible. I just don’t care anymore. Leads to some interesting outfits, sure, but life is way more relaxed.

5. Feeling sorry.

If you find yourself apologizing over things you shouldn’t be apologizing for, just knock it off. You’re brainwashing yourself into believing a false reality where you’re always at fault. You aren’t. Quit with the sorry.

6. Saying yes.

If you don’t want to. Don’t be weak in the face of the hard ask. Just say no if you don’t want to.

7. Trying to impress everyone.

You’re probably just fine how you are. No need to dress to impress.

8. Saying what people want to hear.

Hey, be honest. If you have something to say, say it. There’s no need to sugar coat your thoughts and feelings. Be out there, out loud, and real with people. They’ll respect you for it.

9. Your limiting beliefs.

One thing that tends to derail me is the belief that now isn’t the right time. Now is now, and the best time to start anything you want to do is at this moment. Don’t let core beliefs slow you down. They’re here to lift you up, not hold you down.

10. Worrying about the future.

The future is coming one way or the other. Be ready for it, but don’t spend your time in worry about it. It won’t do you any good at all.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!! – Light Margarita Recipe (Please Drink and Party Responsibly)

Cinco-De-Mayo-Drinks-5-460x335

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated in the United States and in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla. Mexican Americans also often see the day as a source of pride; one way they can honor their ethnicity is to celebrate this day.

The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army‘s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken to be Mexico’s Independence Day—the most important national holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16.

It’s that time again – Earthquakes!!! What to Do? Before, After & During a Quake – Tell us your earthquake Tips & Stories

funny-earthquake-kit-wiggly-eyes

“VICTORY LOVES PREPARATION.”

Once again if you live in California you’re used to waking up early in the morning by an earthquake, just like I was this morning. Like most people on a Sunday, I like to prepare for the week. For example, I might write things to do that week and form a plan with goals. Most successful people have plans and goals they follow like a form of religion. Naturally, Mother Nature doesn’t give a fuck about your plans. It comes at a moment’s notice, like early on a Monday morning when you are trying to sleep in because you don’t have to go to work. Listen “Shit happens” and you can’t control everything but I believe you can always give yourself a better chance to succeed in anything including surviving an earthquake. If your a L.A. Native like myself, who has lived in earthquake country, I’ve learned a thing or two about Earthquakes. I’m usually jokey about subjects with funny pictures but I’ve learned in my short time on Earth, that Mother Nature is nothing to mess with because it can give life and take it away at the same time. So, please read and follow these tips on how to keep your friends and family safe Before, After & During an Earthquake.

PLAN FOR AN EARTHQUAKE

DEVELOP A FAMILY DISASTER PLAN. PLEASE SEE THE “FAMILY DISASTER PLAN” SECTION FOR GENERAL FAMILY PLANNING INFORMATION. DEVELOP EARTHQUAKE-SPECIFIC PLANNING. LEARN ABOUT EARTHQUAKE RISK IN YOUR AREA. CONTACT YOUR LOCAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT OFFICE, AMERICAN RED CROSS CHAPTER, STATE GEOLOGICAL SURVEY, OR DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES FOR HISTORICAL INFORMATION AND EARTHQUAKE PREPAREDNESS FOR YOUR AREA. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE 41 STATES OR TERRITORIES AT MODERATE TO HIGH RISK, MANY PEOPLE DO NOT REALIZE THE POTENTIAL FOR EARTHQUAKES IN THEIR AREA.

If you are at risk from earthquakes:

  • Pick “safe places” in each room of your home. A safe place could be under a sturdy table or desk or against an interior wall away from windows, bookcases, or tall furniture that could fall on you. The shorter the distance to move to safety, the less likely you will be injured. Injury statistics show that persons moving more than 10 feet during an earthquake’s shaking are most likely to experience injury.
  • Practice drop, cover, and hold-on in each safe place. Drop under a sturdy desk or table, hold on, and protect your eyes by pressing your face against your arm. Practicing will make these actions an automatic response. When an earthquake or other disaster occurs, many people hesitate, trying to remember what they are supposed to do. Responding quickly and automatically may help protect you from injury.
  • Practice drop, cover, and hold-on at least twice a year. Frequent practice will help reinforce safe behavior.
  • Talk with your insurance agent. Different areas have different requirements for earthquake protection. Study locations of active faults, and if you are at risk, consider purchasing earthquake insurance.
  • Inform guests, babysitters, and caregivers of your plan. Everyone in your home should know what to do if an earthquake occurs. Assure yourself that others will respond properly even if you are not at home during the earthquake.
  • Get training. Take a first aid class from your local Red Cross chapter. Get training on how to use a fire extinguisher from your local fire department. Keep your training current. Training will help you to keep calm and know what to do when an earthquake occurs.
  • Discuss earthquakes with your family. Everyone should know what to do in case all family members are not together. Discussing earthquakes ahead of time helps reduce fear and anxiety and lets everyone know how to respond.

ASSEMBLE A DISASTER SUPPLIES KIT

Please see the “Disaster Supplies Kit” section for general supplies kit information. Earthquake-specific supplies should include the following:

    • A flashlight and sturdy shoes by each person’s bedside.
    • Disaster Supplies Kit basics

Evacuation Supply Kit.

WHAT TO DO DURING AN EARTHQUAKE

  • Drop, cover, and hold on! Move only a few steps to a nearby safe place. Most injured persons in earthquakes move more than five feet during the shaking. It is very dangerous to try to leave a building during an earthquake because objects can fall on you. Many fatalities occur when people run outside of buildings, only to be killed by falling debris from collapsing walls. In U.S. buildings, you are safer to stay where you are.
  • If you are in bed, hold on and stay there, protecting your head with a pillow. You are less likely to be injured staying where you are. Broken glass on the floor has caused injury to those who have rolled to the floor or tried to get to doorways.
  • If you are outdoors, find a clear spot away from buildings, trees, streetlights, and power lines. Drop to the ground and stay there until the shaking stops. Injuries can occur from falling trees, street-lights and power lines, or building debris.
  • If you are in a vehicle, pull over to a clear location, stop and stay there with your seatbelt fastened until the shaking has stopped. Trees, power lines, poles, street signs, and other overhead items may fall during earthquakes. Stopping will help reduce your risk, and a hard-topped vehicle will help protect you from flying or falling objects. Once the shaking has stopped, proceed with caution. Avoid bridges or ramps that might have been damaged by the quake.
  • Stay indoors until the shaking stops and you’re sure it’s safe to exit. More injuries happen when people move during the shaking of an earthquake. After the shaking has stopped, if you go outside, move quickly away from the building to prevent injury from falling debris.
  • Stay away from windows. Windows can shatter with such force that you can be injured several feet away.
  • In a high-rise building, expect the fire alarms and sprinklers to go off during a quake. Earthquakes frequently cause fire alarm and fire sprinkler systems to go off even if there is no fire. Check for and extinguish small fires, and, if exiting, use the stairs.
  • If you are in a coastal area, move to higher ground. Tsunamis are often created by earthquakes. (See the “Tsunami”section for more information).
  • If you are in a mountainous area or near unstable slopes or cliffs, be alert for falling rocks and other debris that could be loosened by the earthquake. Landslides commonly happen after earthquakes. (See the“Landslide” section for more information.)

WHAT TO DO AFTER AN EARTHQUAKE

  • Check yourself for injuries. Often people tend to others without checking their own injuries. You will be better able to care for others if you are not injured or if you have received first aid for your injuries.
  • Protect yourself from further danger by putting on long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, sturdy shoes, and work gloves. This will protect your from further injury by broken objects.
  • After you have taken care of yourself, help injured or trapped persons. If you have it in your area, call 9-1-1, then give first aid when appropriate. Don’t try to move seriously injured people unless they are in immediate danger of further injury.
  • Look for and extinguish small fires. Eliminate fire hazards. Putting out small fires quickly, using available resources, will prevent them from spreading. Fire is the most common hazard following earthquakes. Fires followed the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 for three days, creating more damage than the earthquake.
  • Leave the gas on at the main valve, unless you smell gas or think it’s leaking. It may be weeks or months before professionals can turn gas back on using the correct procedures. Explosions have caused injury and death when homeowners have improperly turned their gas back on by themselves.
  • Clean up spilled medicines, bleaches, gasoline, or other flammable liquids immediately. Avoid the hazard of a chemical emergency.
  • Open closet and cabinet doors cautiously. Contents may have shifted during the shaking of an earthquake and could fall, creating further damage or injury.
  • Inspect your home for damage. Get everyone out if your home is unsafe. Aftershocks following earthquakes can cause further damage to unstable buildings. If your home has experienced damage, get out before aftershocks happen.
  • Help neighbors who may require special assistance. Elderly people and people with disabilities may require additional assistance. People who care for them or who have large families may need additional assistance in emergency situations.
  • Listen to a portable, battery-operated radio (or television) for updated emergency information and instructions. If the electricity is out, this may be your main source of information. Local radio and local officials provide the most appropriate advice for your particular situation.
  • Expect aftershocks. Each time you feel one, drop, cover, and hold on! Aftershocks frequently occur minutes, days, weeks, and even months following an earthquake.
  • Watch out for fallen power lines or broken gas lines, and stay out of damaged areas. Hazards caused by earthquakes are often difficult to see, and you could be easily injured.
  • Stay out of damaged buildings. If you are away from home, return only when authorities say it is safe. Damaged buildings may be destroyed by aftershocks following the main quake.
  • Use battery-powered lanterns or flashlights to inspect your home. Kerosene lanterns, torches, candles, and matches may tip over or ignite flammables inside.
  • Inspect the entire length of chimneys carefully for damage. Unnoticed damage could lead to fire or injury from falling debris during an aftershock. Cracks in chimneys can be the cause of a fire years later.
  • Take pictures of the damage, both to the house and its contents, for insurance claims.
  • Avoid smoking inside buildings. Smoking in confined areas can cause fires.

Twisted Colossus — the World’s Longest Hybrid Coaster Opening May 23rd (Would you ride it?)

gallery_twistedcolossus2b

I grew up in the valley near Magic Mountain which I went to every weekend my friends and I would go to Magic Mountain to ride and play games all day long. Eventually, I got one of my first jobs there as a ride operator. Colossus was my first ride that I got to the chance to operate, which I thought it was a boring ride but then when I heard last year they were going to get rid of it, a piece of my childhood memory died but then I heard about Twisted Colossus, the next generation of the beloved wooden roller coaster that thrilled millions of guests in its 36-year reign at the park, will be a unique technological marvel combining an iconic wooden structure with state-of-the-art Iron Horse Track.

Regrets – We all have them, tell us yours & help out others

Hey there BLW fans, I thought it would different and talk about Regrets. I know LIFE is all about the present and the future, which I thought it would be helpful and healthy to talk about our own regrets just to put them out in the open so you can clear your own conscious and maybe help out other people in the same process to value what they have in their own lives.

Here it goes: I wish I spent more time with my father before he passed just talking about business and basketball. Just shooting the shit with him was the best time of my life. I miss him a lot.

It’s your turn.

The Baltimore Riots – Is violence the best way to deal with all the Injustice of the World? How can we handle it as rational human beings?

According to Reuters in Baltimore, ND, seven Baltimore police officers were injured on Monday as rioters threw bricks and stones and burned patrol cars in violent protests after the funeral of a black man who died in police custody.

The riots broke out just a few blocks from the site of the funeral of 25-year-old Freddie Gray in northwest Baltimore and then spread through other parts of the city, after local law enforcement warned of a threat by gangs.

Television images showed looting and a mob of rioters jumping on the top of a police car, after teenaged crowds ignored calls to disperse and clashed with a line of hundreds of police.
