How To Get Healthy Using A Forsoklin Diet

You know the old adage you are what you eat? Well there is quite a bit of truth to that. What you put into your body has a direct impact on what you see in the mirror every day. Plus, there is the problem of all the added chemicals and pesticides found in processed food. All of this can leave a person feeling bloated, unhealthy and what is worse overweight. However, what you may be missing more than just a simple diet plan is the added benefits of some natural supplements. What I’m talking about is Forskolin.

What is Forskolin, you ask? It is a dietary supplement that can help you to lose weight and build muscle at the same time. This natural supplement, touted by Dr. Oz as the “miracle flower” or “lightning in a bottle”, is made from the chemicals and nutrients found in a plant called the Coleus Forskohlii—or Plectranthus Barbatus for you more scientific types. Anyway, this natural herb is said to treat respiratory conditions, skin problems or infections, central nervous system ailments, circulation problems, rheumatism, gastrointestinal problems and other ailments. Indeed, if you take meds for asthma, eczema, psoriasis, or high blood pressure you just might find Forskolin listed among the main ingredients. Forskolin has been used in Ayurveda medicine for ages. In fact, Ayerveda medical principles have been handed down for 2,000 years after they first originated in India. Its philosophy is similar to those who practice Naturopathic medicine today. In other words, they focus on treating the body through more natural methods.

Now any pill, no matter how great, can’t do all the work for you. Using Forskolin will just adjust the body to the correct degree to begin to naturally lose that unwanted blubber while adding and maintaining muscle. What Forskolin does for you is simply help burn body fat, suppress your appetite and give you a metabolism boost. Things that you can do in addition to taking this supplement to have an added benefit is combine it with a well-balanced diet of GMO free food using a 1500 to 2000 calorie diet dependent on your body type as well as a healthy exercise regimen that you can maintain over time. Things I recommend for your diet is one high in protein and low in carbs and avoid adding things like sodium and unnecessary fats, though a little is okay. In fact, you should stick to healthy fats like that can be found in avocados or natural peanut butter. Also, give yourself plenty of Vitamin C. My recommendation? Drink plenty of orange juice. Don’t go for the processed kind, get the fresh squeezed if its available.

Because the Forskolin diet plan focuses so much on what you put into your system and on those particular supplements and nutrients being more natural and GMO free, I think you can expect yourself to get healthy and start slimming down rapidly on a more Ayervedic supplement regimen and diet. However, you also must remember that these types of changes to your body don’t happen overnight. You may not see the changes for many weeks or months. You have to have the tenacity to stay with any diet program once you begin it. This means that you continually watch what you eat and that you exercise regularly. Eventually, this new diet will simply become a habit and a new lifestyle, your body will adjust and then you will begin to reap the benefits of more energy, improved sex life and more. So, whether your goals are to lose that unwanted belly fat, drop 100 pounds, or simply get back in shape you should try out the Forskolin diet plan. Just think, it’s a 2,000-year-old pill that has been waiting in the wings to help you tackle weight loss for good.

Academy of Art University Students Presented The Future of Fashion At NYFW

On the 9th of September Academy of Arts Fashion Students brought their studies to a crescendo by showcasing their visions for the future of fashion at one of the industries premiere events. The event was New York Fashion Week (NYFW). NYFW is a fashion event that can make or break a new fashion designer but luckily these select students brought everything they had and made an impression that we all hope will last.

The Academy of Art held the annual event at the Skylight Clarkson Square which became the go to place for all things Style during NYFW. The event brought to bear ten of our most recent alumni from both BFA and MFA programs as they showed off their new collections—five for women and two for men.

The designers taken as a group have a very diverse background. They come from places like China or coastal Maine and many places found in-between to give you a range. However, their diversity wasn’t what made an impact on the judges, such as the legendary Ms. J Alexander from America’s Next Top Model and Sara Kozlowki who is Director of Education and Professional Development at CFDA, it was the quality of their ideas, silhouettes and craftmanship techniques.

The Academy of Art University is proud of its Fashion Design students for making such an impact on the fashion world this year. It makes us happy to be fulfilling our mission statement of preparing aspiring professionals for the fields of design, communication and the arts by delivering outstanding degree programs that lead to real jobs within the industry. One of the highlights of this year’s fashion graduates is their diversity and indeed our University prides itself on maintaining an inclusive admissions policy.

Founded by Richard S. Stephens in 1929 as the Academy of Advertising Art, we have since grown much larger and rebranded over the years into the trusted University we are today. Housed in San Francisco we also have several online programs available to distance learners who can’t make the journey here. The Academy of Art University is a privately owned, for profit institution that employs 283 full time teachers and around 1154 part-time teachers.

In addition, we are also a regionally accredited university. The Academy of Art received its accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges in 2007. We also hold several other accreditations from the National Association of Schools and Art and Design, The Council for Interior Design Accreditation, and the National Architectural Accrediting Board.

Here is the short story I wrote that got me accepted into my English Masters program.

ISOLATION DISTURBED

By

DAVID SHREVE

 

Meditation took his mind off his troubles and gave him focus. Sure it was focus on the nothing but it was focus nonetheless. And when a man spends years isolated in a mountain cavern he needs that. That was Mace’s lot in life—wasting away alone. It was his punishment for failing his people decades ago by letting the die.

He was still haunted by the memories of failing his people and letting them be slaughtered by the werewolves of the northern waste. Wolves who had lied to him when he had accepted their offer of peace. To Mace the memories were still vivid but came in waves. Growling snapping teeth that salivated, human screams and blood. The blood of his people dripping from wolf claws. The corpse of a mother and her infant child strewn to pieces, barely recognizable.

Mace opened his eyes and the stream of memory ceased almost as quickly as it had begun. He wiped cold sweat from his forehead as he rose from his seated position careful not to strike his head on the top of the cavern that had been his home for the past few decades. It was a wet home often during the rainy seasons as it was now and Mace had little but rags to brace himself against the bitter forces of nature.

Still the same, he thought, when will the past stop confounding me? When will I have peace?

Mace made his way out of the dimly lit cavern into the rainy light of day. It was cloudy with a light breeze and rain. Mace took a breath, it was like breathing water, then made his way down to a nearby valley that was covered with trees and contained within it a small stream that brought Mace his drinking supply and his main source of protein—fish.

Mace was set on catching one today. He found a good small but strong tree limb and whittled it into a point with his trusty jeweled knife. Then he rolled up his pant legs and went to work. It was slow going. In a stream like this Mace couldn’t count on food from it every day. He usually had to rely on nuts and berries to maintain his strength. But he was determined that wouldn’t be the case today.

He observed the currents of the water and was very still and silent. Mace sensed movement and chucked his spear in its direction. A perfect hit. Meat was on the menu for the day at least.

Back in his cavern Mace sat cooking his fish and found himself slipping back into his thoughts again…

It was thirty years ago. Orcs were raging through the country making a mockery of decent law abiding citizens of the empire. They pillaged and destroyed wherever they could. And they were coming nearer to his city.

Mace was the sheriff. It was his duty to make certain that the people of his town were safe and secure. Usually that meant keeping the Werewolf problem encroaching from the Timber Woods at bay but now it meant securing all the borders which was making his task highly difficult. But Mace had come up with a plan to kill two birds with one stone.

Mace knew that the wolves were anxious about the Orc problem and that if the borders weren’t secured that chaos would befall the region for both parties so he had worked out an arrangement to meet with Draygo, the tribal leader of the Werewolf’s, to propose a solution that would solve both of their problems and perhaps bring greater stability to the region.

The plan was simple. A peace treaty where the wolves would protect their own borders and no longer assail the human city of Xanthus. Both parties agreed to the proposal. But in the end the wolves did not honor it. Instead they betrayed Mace. Instead they aligned themselves secretly with the Orcs and together on a cold winter night ravaged the city slaughtering thousands.

Mace ate his fish. It was hot and burnt but still palatable. He spit the bones of the fish out as he munched hungrily. Mace listened to the dripping of water deep within the cavern and the soft crackles of burning wood. And through this Mace finally found himself thinking of nothing—of just living. It almost brought him to tears. He hadn’t felt this way since before the tragedy thirty years ago.

Maybe I’m ready to leave, he thought.

But just then, before he could think or rethink his assertion that he may be ready to leave, a shape walked into view. It shocked Mace. It was a young man barely beyond the age of ascension. He looked at Mace with a knowing smirk. His long brown hair coming down to shoulders that bore fine clothing. He looked hard at Mace with a deep resigning judgmental stare.

“We’ve been watching you.” He paused for Mace to take the statement in. “We’ve been watching you for a long time.”

“Who are you?” Mace asked incredulously.

“You know me or at least know my father,” the young man said, “and he says it is time.”

“Time for what?” Mace retorted.

“To bring your suffering to an end.” The young man pulled out a long jagged knife out and placed on the polished rocky floor. “Outside is a platoon of the finest Orc and Werewolf army ever assembled. There is no escape. Come now Mace. Do us all a favor. Kill yourself so that we won’t have to.”

Somehow they had found him or perhaps they had always known. Yes, that must be it. They always knew and were patiently waiting for Mace to reemerge from his self-imposed punishment. No, Mace wouldn’t go that far. They had known. They just didn’t care and now they were just tying up loose ends. But why now?

Mace stared at the knife. Then he scolded himself. If he was going to kill himself, he would have done it by now. Mace now came to realize what he had really been doing by coming out here in the middle of nowhere. It wasn’t to hide or give up. It was to live. By living out here among the elements in this harsh environment he had come to know himself more deeply—more fully. Something that this young man would never understand. If indeed he was a man.

Mace looked deeper into the boy’s soul and saw it. The darkness. He was a wolf. The future for the first time in ages rolled out before Mace. The young man would transform then they would fight and Mace would have to face what lay beyond his mountain cavern home.

“So, how is your father?” Mace decided to call him on his threats, “What was his name again?” Mace didn’t want the boy to think he had been thinking of the past this entire time.

“Don’t play stupid old man.” The young man retorted, “You know full well that my father’s name is–”

“Sorry what was that?” Mace said, “I have a rather short memory of betrayers. I tend to try to forget when I’ve been abused.”

The boy laughed, “my father always wondered why you never sought revenge.”

“Oh, that’s easy. I enjoy warm dishes for dinner not cold ones.” Mace shot back.

The young man stood flabbergasted not sure what to do or how to react. Now Mace decided to push back against this young fool. Mace found it hard to conceal a grin.

“Well young one, I think it’s time you move along.” Mace said, “Whatever you are selling I’m not buying.”

“Did you not hear what I said?” the boy asked with a tinge of anger laced in his voice that was becoming more deep and throaty.

“Oh, I did I just don’t do well with the authority of wolves.” Mace said.

“Then prepare to die!” and with that the young man scowl turned deeper and he began snarling as Mace could hear bones contort and crack. He looked in horror as muscles bulged and fur sprouted. Mace grabbed his jeweled knife and rushed forward and picked up the jagged knife that lay on the floor of the cavern and began thrusting and jabbing forward as the young man transformed into a Werewolf.

As hard as Mace tried he could not stop the transformation. Instead the wolf struck back swinging its massive left forearm hard into Mace’s midsection sending him flying into the side of the cavern. Mace was able to hold on luckily to the two knifes in each of his hands as the wolf leapt on top of him and began slashing and scratching at him.

Mace was getting cut up badly but he was landing solid blows of his own against the fearsome beast. Mace rolled out from under the wolf and quickly rose to his feet. The wolf looked at him and howled. The sound echoed through the cavern.

“You know, I think I do remember your father,” Mace said as he wobbled on his feet, “Wasn’t he the guy that betrayed me and my people to take up with a bunch of inbred hillbillies that don’t know the meaning of the word hygiene?”

That made the wolf livid he growled again and pounced forward to deliver a death blow. He pounced right into Mace’s trap. As the Wolf flew through the air Mace slung the jagged dagger straight and true right into the wolf’s eye where it stuck with a sickening thud. The wolf whimpered and began tearing at its eye. That’s when Mace jumped on the wolf’s back and with his jeweled knife and went for the kill.

One quick slice to the jugular and it was all over. The wolf fell onto its stomach and retched as it suffocated on its own blood then died.

Mace slumped down for a moment against the cavern wall and composed himself. He sat for what seemed like an eternity and peered towards the entrance to the cavern. Peered towards the outside world where supposedly many more Werewolves lay in wait. After a time, Mace stood and made his way carefully outside into the rainy breeze he had tasted earlier in the day. But this time he scanned the surrounding area for enemies. For young men and Werewolves. For Orcs.

But he found nothing. He found no one. Mace laughed. The young man had lied and Mace had called his bluff. However, the experience gave Mace cause to wonder. Just what was happening in the outside world? Mace knew it was time to find out.

Fiction # 1

The following is an excerpt from one of my early attempts at short fiction.

After High School But Before Death Excerpt

by.

David Shreve

Prologue:
How could he do this? I was so nice too him. All he had to do was write the story… I hate him. I hate him so much for leaving me. How could he move on? The idea was so good—so right! He betrayed me. Betrayed my trust and disrespected me. He owes me, yes, that’s right. He will work for me again! I will find him. I will hunt him down if need be and make him finish what he started with me so long ago. Yes, Endless Land will finally be the success it was always meant to be…
Part 1:
Matthew Singleton was a success. At least that’s what everyone told him. And who was he to argue? He had by all accounts made it. His new novel, The Alien from Space was a breakout success and had spent 3 months on the New York Times Bestsellers list. Sure he wasn’t the absolute best in the world but Matt could be comfortable with what fate sent his way.
“Excuse me sir can you sign it to my brother Sam?” A young boy asked who stood in line in front of Matthew’s table.
“Sure, kid.” Matt replied. Matt wrote fantasy and science fiction novels for young adults as was evidenced by the young 14 year old boy that stood before him. Matt sat at a long grey table in a local bookstore in Colorado. Matt had amassed a rather small following in this state. There were a good number of young people and quite a few parents here to get a signed copy of his book. Matt did his best to keep the line moving along while still making each person feel appreciated.
Matt still wasn’t quite used to the fanfare of these types of events. Matt simply started writing as a hobby one day and found that he liked it enough to do it no matter what else was going on in life. Matt wrote because he loved to do it. The fanfare was a necessary by product of the activity and a sign of Matt’s success at the medium. Matt loved the fanfare too just in small doses. He didn’t think he ever wanted to get much bigger than this but with the success of his first novel and stories that keep coming into development Matt saw a long future involving this activity. Matt knew someday he would get used to it.
“Here you go.” Matt handed back the signed copy of his book to the 14 year old.
“Thanks mister!” The boy squeaked as he ran off to be with his father who had brought him to the event. The boy’s dad smiled back at the author thanking him. Matt didn’t know exactly why. There could be a lot of reasons. Sometimes Matt liked to think that he inspired children to read and that helped them in school or something noble, like that. But Matt knew it was just to read the good story and didn’t really need to be more than that.
Matt noticed that the line was getting a bit longer as he continued to sign and keep things moving along. Most of the people in the line were still children but Matthew noticed that now there was one man. He had glasses and blonde curly hair. He was also significantly overweight. He dressed modestly blue pants and a white shirt with some kind of strange Japanese cartoon printed on it. Matthew found himself hoping he wasn’t some kind of sex offender. And also strangely Matt thought he recognized the man but he couldn’t be sure.
Come on, think about what your wearing buddy, he thought. Matt dressed modestly as well but he wore black slacks, casual dress shoes and a collared blue shirt. He needed to be somewhat formal for occasions such as this but not overly so. But this guy didn’t even think. He didn’t seem to have even shaved recently and Matt thought he was detecting some kind of smell as the man got closer. He didn’t even have a copy of Matt’s book.
“Hello, Matt.” The strange blonde said when he finally reached Matthew.
“Uh, hello, do I know you?” Matt found himself asking involuntarily.
“Why, yes, we do know each other.” The strange blond man answered with something that Matt could only interpret as glee. “Are you ready to do the right thing?” He continued.
“Excuse me?” Matt asked.
“To do the right thing… Are you ready?” The blond man pressed.
“I don’t think I understand your meaning…” Matt said.
“You only have one chance at this. Don’t blow it Singleton.” The blonde man continued.
“Was that a threat? Look, dude, there are kids here. I don’t think you want to walk down this road.” Matt said.
“No, I think it’s you who doesn’t want to walk down this road—” then the blonde man pulled the gun. He had hidden it well in his jeans underneath his extra extra-large t-shirt.
Children and parents screamed in unison. One of them shouted “He’s got a gun! Everyone get down!”
Then he grabbed Matthew Singleton knocking over the table, which was stacked high with novels, clean over.
“Matthew Singleton. You’re coming with me!” He said and that was the beginning.

Why to Buy a 2013 Hybrid Car vs. a Regular Car in Oklahoma

The reasons that we buy a car are usually dependent on our situation.  Do we need something to get from point A to B? Yes, that’s usually a given for anyone looking for a car.  Do we want a car with better fuel economy?  Most of us do.  Do we want to have less of an impact on the environment?  For some this may be more important than for others.

Having less of an impact on the environment is only the beginning of why Hybrid cars exist though. Hybrid cars aren’t pure electric cars—they run on gas as well as electricity. So, you won’t ever have to worry about running out of an electrical charge when you’re on the go in a Hybrid and didn’t have time to charge up.

The real main feature in owning a Hybrid car is actually cost savings because of their higher mpg than most standard pure gas vehicles.  At lower speeds most Hybrids only have to use electrical power.  This means fewer trips to the pump and less money out of your pocket – especially if you do most of your driving at lower speeds in the city.

Definitely there are other reasons to buy a hybrid including having a higher resale value, longer warranties, possible tax incentives, and local benefits like automatic access to HOV lanes in some states; just to name a few.

However, the bottom line on owning a Hybrid in Stillwater is accessing the quality engineering that brings you cost benefits through higher mpg that should eventually over time bring you a great return on your investment.

With that in mind, step into the 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid in Stillwater

One of the best Hybrids currently on the market is the 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid.  At the heart of the Civic Hybrid is the sophisticated Integrated Motor Assist System.  The IMA pairs a 1.5-liter, i-VTEC 4-cylinder gasoline engine with an electric motor –giving you the best of both worlds in power and efficiency adding up to an excellent return on your investment.
