Diane Namm and Several Specialists from a Variety of Fields Talk About Modern-Day Slavery

Posted by Levine Communications Office on January 18, 2013

ImageWritten by Cameron Conaway

“Global awareness campaigns are stronger than ever thanks to social media. Let’s take Twitter for example. Rotary International has had tremendous success spreading their #EndPolioNow mission and most recently I’ve discovered the Indigenous Rights Revolution through their #IdleNoMore campaign. With social media however, can come a whole lot of misinformation and most of the time it’s skewed towards the extreme. As my finger is on the pulse of all things human trafficking such skewing in this field has been most evident to me. It’s true that even the spread of misinformation can lead to positive results. My Twitter feed often lights up with some horrendous statistic that has no source but certainly pulls on emotions and leads to more people getting involved in the fight. Still, nothing works in a fight quite like the truth. In a physical altercation truth screams and there are immediate results. In an awareness campaign like the fight against human trafficking, however, truth’s voice can get lost in the current. So I cast a question into the current, “What are the biggest misconceptions about human trafficking?”

How to: Enhance Reading for Children with Laughter

Posted by Levine Communications Office on January 18, 2013

ImageWritten by Diane Namm
“Most of us remember fondly the experience of either cuddling with a parent, or a child, in a rocking chair or at bedtime, reading stories that transport us into other worlds without ever leaving the comfort of our homes. But the reading process, the ability to learn to read, isn’t acquired in an instant.  It happens over the course of several cognitive learning stages.  

Pre-readers like to look at books and be read to. They emulate reading, by holding books and pretending to read them. Children learn about words from songs, rhymes, signs and packages.  This ultimately leads to an understanding that their own thoughts can be put into print and that they can use pictures and memory to retell a story.

Giving a child the gift of reading takes patience and a sense of humor. A joke book fits uniquely into this process

“With divorce rates in the U.S. consistently reported at 30 to 50 percent, odds are pretty good that anyone on the dating scene is dancing, dining and moviegoing with someone who has been divorced, and often more than once.

Relationship experts don’t necessarily see problems with dating someone who has been divorced more than once, but it depends on circumstances.”

What You Should Eat to Fuel your Workouts: Carbs, Fats, Protein

Posted by Levine Communications Office on January 16, 2013

ImageWritten by Jackie Keller

” The human body, like any machine, needs high quality fuel in order to function at its very best. For athletes, whose bodies may be the most fine-tuned and remarkable machines on the planet, this requirement is especially critical. Without proper nutrition, an entire season of exercise and training can be entirely wasted, and competitions can be lost or won based on how well you fuel the machine that is your body. All athletes, from amateurs to Olympians, have begun to realize that a proper and well-maintained diet can make the difference between results and waste or victory and defeat.

Carbohydrates, protein, and fat are the three macromolecules that provide these calories, and your body utilizes them in different ways dependent on their chemical composition and energetic breakdown. By properly proportioning the amount of calories and nutrients you get from these sources, you can fine-tune your diet in order to help you achieve your athletic goals.”
