I Love Giving Birth – ABC News

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Million Moms Challenge. Contest runs September 19 to October 16, 2011. This is the most amazing feeling in the world”.

What I didn’t plan on was her being footling breech and not turning.  At 37 weeks 3 days my water broke and my baby was born via C-Section.

When I found myself pregnant with my first child however, my tune was different.  My sister had two homebirths, and while I knew I would NEVER do that (never say never) she had really good experiences both times.  My sister-in-law had just had a baby two years earlier in a birth center, and I thought that was such a great alternative.

I had researched and knew exactly how I wanted birth to be.  I knew that I would have a natural, drug-free birth with a Certified Nurse Midwife in the hospital.  I knew my baby would be born gently, peacefully and would nurse right away.

I found myself pregnant 9 months later and knew this time would be different.  I did everything in my power to make sure my baby was not breech this time.

Up until that point, I was not really actively doing anything to grow this baby.  I was eating, I was staying active, I was prepping mentally for labor, but there was nothing I was doing.

But, when the time came and my body told me to push, I realized I had a new favorite part of pregnancy.. A random winner will be announced by October 18, 2011. Official Contest Rules

 I Love Giving Birth

by KIM, Prairie Mama

Until the moment he was born, I would have told you my favorite part of pregnancy was feeling the baby move.

My favorite part of pregnancy is giving birth.  Working with my baby and my body to bring them into the world.  The feeling of euphoria and relief when that sweet little person emerges from my body.  The tears, blood, pain, and going physically beyond anything I have ever experienced.

Please join the Million Moms Challenge and sign up!

And he wasn’t.  It was not a difficult pregnancy, he was in the perfect position for birth and everything was perfect.

When I was a teenager, I knew that I would want drugs when I had a baby.  My favorite thing to say was, “God gave man the smarts to invent drugs for a reason.  Stick that needle in my back and give me relief!”

It is where Heaven and Earth meet and I feel privileged to have experienced it 5 glorious times.

Hers was not the birth I had envisioned.  It was hard to accept and to recover from.  I never wanted another birth like it again.

I remember feeling my baby descend through the birth canal and thinking, “I can’t believe I am doing this

Austrian Koellerer punished for breaking rules on betting

Koellerer’s personal website carried details of betting odds on tennis matches and provided links to allow users to place bets,” a statement said.

LONDON (Reuters) – Austrian player Daniel Koellerer was given a suspended three-month ban after admitting using his personal website to facilitate betting on matches, the Tennis Integrity Unit said on Thursday.

All players must sign up to the Uniform Tennis Anti-Corruption Program.

The Tennis Integrity Unit was established by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and the ATP and WTA Tours to protect the sport from corruption and betting scandals..

(Reporting by Martyn Herman; Editing by Sonia Oxley)

There was no suggestion that she had been involved in fixing matches.

Earlier this year, Russian player Ekaterina Bychkova was suspended for 30 days and missed the Australian Open after the Tennis Integrity Unit found that she failed to report that she was asked to provide inside information and throw matches.

The 27-year-old, ranked 134th in the world, was also handed a suspended 15,000 euros ($19,250) fine which, like the ban, would be triggered if he committed a similar offence in the next two years. His manager Manfred Nareyka was also disciplined.

Koellerer’s website included a link to a gambling site that enabled fans to place bets on matches.

“The offence of facilitating betting contravenes Article D1b of the Uniform Tennis Anti-Corruption Program.”

“Tennis Integrity Unit investigation found that Mr

How Freelance Journalism Pays

The full feature-length work breaks out to just $0.25 per word.

In general, budgets remain similar. Editors aren’t about to encourage that sort of poor quality effort, and would only edit out the “dead wood,” anyway – and then be frustrated with the writer and, perhaps, not offer any more assignments.

In short, pay per word is a loose phrase with limited actual purpose – and that is best for all concerned.

The math: The 350-word story pays about $0.43 U.S. for a story that is right at 350 words.

The fact is: One and the same.

The editor already announced the job fee/payment; it won’t change after the fact. The editor takes comfort in being able to predict how he will fill page space appropriately, and the writer gets to know that even if the story wraps up tightly at 867 words, she will be paid the same as if she’d filled up to 1,000.

In terms of the numbers, imagine an editor is working with 10 different freelancers for the next edition of the newspaper. Is that per word written or per word published? Neither.

The 350-word story is approximately what that magazine will expect of its front-of-book pieces every issue. Can you get it to me by Friday?”

An example:

NewspapersGetting Paid Per Word

And think about the flip-side of this concept: How many writers want to submit a 984-word story, expecting to be paid for precisely 984 words, only to have an editor trim it down to 722 and pay only for that many words?

It is a common expression to hear about writers being paid X amount per word. I want 800 words; make it 1,000 tops. I’m getting paid, baby.”

Related story: What Newspapers Pay Staff Writers

Another example:

The strictly defined meaning of the phrase cannot work because of the logistical underpinnings of journalism publications.

Then she hears the editor say, “The fee is $200.”. So space remains similar. 2 would not be very happy about that.

Neither is the editor at the newspaper offering a $50 bonus to the writer who figured out that a 1,000-word piece is 25 percent longer than an 800-word story.

Pay Per Word Is An Expression

So, the deal was $200 for an 800-1,000-word story. A writer can accept, attempt to negotiate, or refuse the amount.

These are factors of planning and design that are made and reasonably adhered to from one issue of the magazine to the next.

An editor at the Metropolis Daily News accepts a writer’s travel pitch and says, “Good idea. For simplicity’s sake, suppose all stories are to be in that 800-1,000-word range.

The editor has a budget of $2,000 to pay the freelancers ($200 per story multiplied by 10 writers).

The reality is editors have certain space in mind, and certain word count ranges that fit that space – and certain ballpark dollars in the budget for those stories.

Suppose all 10 writers maxed out the word count? Where will the extra page space come from to publish those words? How will the editor find an extra $500 to pay the freelancers?

A typical American mid-sized lifestyle magazine’s editor says he will pay $150 for a 350-word article that goes at the front of the magazine, and will pay $500 for a 2,000-word feature-length piece.

While the phrase “pay per word” is used, it indicates a ballpark method for figuring what a publication will pay for stories of various approximate lengths.

The writer, flummoxed, wonders: “$200 for what? 800 words? 1,000?”

Why Pay Per Word Doesn’t Work

Padding a story with excess words just to run up the payday a writer hopes to haul in doesn’t work. And the feature stories will typically be in the area of that 2,000-word mark.

If Writer #1 wrote the maximum length story, then demanded $250 for it, where can that money come from – Writer No. So payments to freelance writers (and photographers, illustrators, etc.) remain similar from issue to issue.

The bottom line: It’s the writer’s responsibility to turn in a quality article wherever its word count may land within the requested word-count range.

The writer who expects to get paid per word likely says, “You bet I can.”

When someone in the journalism world talks about pay per word, don’t think there’s an editorial intern who will sit in a cubicle the day after the latest issue of XYZ Magazine has reached racks, counting words and tallying money to see what to pay each freelancer.

Then she smiles so big the editor can almost hear it through the telephone, and the writer thinks, “A thousand words it is. 2? Writer No

How to Make Your Child a Better Athlete

Youth athletes who fear disappointing the over-zealous mom or dad cheering and jeering from the stands experience tensed muscles and a lack of focus.

Tom Hansen, sports psychologist and founder and CEO of Heads-Up Performance Inc told Suite101.com. Tom Hanson”/>Ah, the sounds of summer: The crack of the bat, the swish and skid of a slide into home plate, the ensuing roar of the crowd and – all too often – the angry shouts, even physical blows of an enraged parent. “But here’s the kicker – that’s how they play better.”

Dr. What are we teaching our children about the game and more importantly about life?

What overzealous parents and coaches are teaching kids, say Hansen and other sports psychology experts nationwide, is a win-at-all-costs approach to sports of all kinds, from football to table tennis. By far the most damaging result of sports-parenting-gone-wild is the embarrassment athletes ensure when their parents not only criticize them, but heckle their opponents.

One major solution is to take the focus off winning games.

Taking the focus off winning and placing it back on fun, allows both young athletes and their parents to “chill” and just enjoy the game. Typically, one of two things happen – either the young athlete becomes increasingly aggressive, or he gives up. They’re unable to concentrate on the game for looking over their shoulder to see the folks’ expressions.

Winning Really Isn’t Everything

Go Back to the Pickup Basics

On the other hand, “Having fun gives you access to freedom,” Hansen says. “Kids who have fun in sports try harder, perform better and stay involved longer.”

“We want to provide parents with some coaching on how to help their kids have more fun in sports,” Hansen says. Also, it can strain the child’s relationship with his or her own teammates, especially if their parent is the coach.”

Such behavior poses an emotional threat to young athletes, says Hansen, whose company teaches athletes of all ages, their parents and coaches ways to deal with sports related issues and conflicts. “Because you’re not worried about the outcome, your muscles are loose and you’re focused on the ball. That’s how I play best.”

“We’re seeing a crisis in youth sports,” says Dr. “Sideline confrontations, coaches losing their cool. “It’s a professionalization of youth sports where the winning model, the adult model, is gradually working down to lower and lower age groups.”. Many experts place the blame squarely on Mom, Dad and, sometimes, the coach.

In fact, studies show that 70 percent of youth athletes drop out of sports by age 13, primarily because they’re “just not having fun anymore.”

Hansen recalled an interview wherein famed New York Yankees Derek Jeter shared his top piece of advice for players aiming to make the transition from the minor leagues to the majors – “Have fun.” Jeter told the reporters that he often imagines himself back in Little League, “where I played for fun. Your body relaxes because you feel safe.

Marketing & Advertising :: How To Win When Down For Entrepreneurs (Page 1 of 2)

To be in complete control of my own destiny. Insecurity, a desire for respect, the burning need to rise far, far, far above circumstances.

Every entrepreneur’s dream is to start with a great idea and build a business that is profitable and sustainable. Especially when family members said that “your idea of being an entrepreneur and walking away from a secure job just couldn’t be done, you’re crazy, you’re nuts.” But I was committed to breaking the chains of circumstances. No matter how many times people put me down, I believed strongly that I could pull it off. I highly recommend it.

It’s an incredible story of entrepreneurial ism, and it got me thinking of a couple things. Most of all, results. Part of what constitutes success is timing and chance. People shut you out, they regard you with suspicion, and, believe me, they’re going to undermine your self-confidence. The results Howard Schulz is getting, and how to transpose those into my life.

Page 1 of 2 :: First | Last :: Prev | 1 2 | Next . In my case, part of me relished the fact. To achieve something unique. It’s called “Pour Your Heart Into It” by Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks. In that moment I realized what I had to do. I was so confident of winning that I enjoyed being in a position where people’s expectations were so low that I knew I could beat them.

Don’t get too caught up in your thoughts. It’s one thing to dream, but when the moment’s right you got to be willing to leave what’s familiar, and go out and find your own way. They’re going to offer you every reasonable, unreasonable and imaginary concoction of thought as to why your idea simply won’t work.

Being the underdog though has a flip side. Because facing such adversity can be invigorating. It all came together in one defining moment.

I knew that if I didn’t take advantage of this emotion, this feeling, this knowing, this opportunity to completely make a transformation, I’d replay it in my mind for the rest of my life. One of my favorite quotes is by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Circumstances of breaking a generational pattern in my family’s life. With my earliest desires to do something for myself and my family. He says, “We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we’ve already done.” This is a by-product of the actions we take each and every day.

As mentioned in one of my other articles, I was re-reading the book of a great entrepreneur. You get to finally feel awake. I would always be wondering, “what if?”, “why didn’t I?” I understood this was my shot. Trouble is most of us usually have to start as an underdog. More than that, we have to be prepared to jump when we see what others can’t (or choose not to) see.

Circumstances of me being trapped in my day job, with no way of advancement. Simon Sinek calls this your “Why”. But most of us have to create our own opportunities. I also realized that if I didn’t seize the opportunity my moment would pass. Even if it didn’t work out I still had to do it.

When I was faced with the decision to try something new, or carry on my then miserable life, I suddenly knew that I was going to make a change. Let’s dig a little deeper.

As I reflected on that I somehow knew the move was consistent with my life’s dream. Swing into “doing”. Strength of action is essential. If I didn’t step out of my comfort zone and risk it all, nothing would come of it.

In any case, your results, are based off something

Quick Cash – 29 ways to make money in one day or less with little or no money!

Learn how to count cards and make a trip to the nearest Casino:

I wouldn’t recommend it because I think gold is going up up up and you wont get the best deal but if you really need cash right now..I mean today, they will give it to you.

18. They also fed him lunch. I considered it for a moment but thought ..”I’m too fat, no one would believe that I was starving”(so I didn’t do it :)

What are you good at? Can you fix a computer or a car? Advertise on Craigslist and fix something for someone, you will be paid in cash that day!

20. From what I understand “Strand’s” also buys back books. Be careful not to rent out to criminals, like I said I’ve done it and it worked out for me but I am pretty lucky,hopefully it will work out for you too.

29. Usually you don’t get much for your books.

16. Promote Clubs:

They can make $30 to $100 dollars an hour, of course I would never do this but you might.

17. Rent out your couch (or if you have a spare room):

Make sure you know what you are doing and aren’t afraid of heights.

14. Sell your old gold jewelry:

You know that ring your great aunt left you that you never wear…pawn it, you can get it back later if you want.

19. I also sold books at “Powel’s” bookstore in Portland, Oregon. Rent out your garage:

Again, this is taking a risk, but all of life is risky. Storage is expensive if you can undercut the going rate you will have customers.

15. Clean someone’s gutters:

Look for quarters that are all silver by looking at the ridges. I will wait for you:

I’ve done this too (but once again I’m in Manhattan). The ones that are all silver will be …all silver and dated between 1932 and 1964. In New York I only got, on average, a dollar per book. Sell junk metals like copper:. Pet Sit and Dog Walker:

In New York or L.A. I thought it sounded like a good idea because people are busy and don’t want to take time off of work.

12. Sell your old books!

26. Sign up as an extra for a movie:

21. The quarters that are not all silver will have a stripe of copper around the edge. Fix something for someone:

I heard of this woman who advertised that she will wait for the Cable guy, the electrician, or a plumber for you for a certain rate (if you have to work and can’t do it yourself). I would not recommend this if you don’t have the ability to count cards successfully.

Depending on where you are Craigslist often has 1 day jobs like cleaning someone’s apartment that day…check Craigslist under Domestic and Etc.

Give the local tween a run for his money, its a dog eat dog world you know!

Sit in front of Starbucks with a cup(look depressed) and get a sign saying that you need money for food. Usually this entails standing on the curb handing out fliers but hey there are worse things out there…like nude modeling!

If you have a car offer rides for a price, give the local taxi service a run for their money.

22. Today silver is almost $29.00 an ounce so it does depend on the price of silver.

Copper is going up so if you can find copper and other junk metals you can sell it to a junk metal dealer and get money that very day! But don’t steal it as some are prone to do!

OK, that’s all I can think of for now,that’s legal at least :), so good luck in making fast cash and if you know of any other ideas please comment below. Go pick them and set up a small roadside stand and sell them.

Many cities have book stores that will buy old books. Pawn something:

Take your crap out and rent out your garage to someone else so that they can put their crap in. If you can learn how to count cards you have the advantage when betting at a blackjack table, if not then you are just throwing away your money because the odds are against you. Taxi anyone?

23. I’ve sold over 100 books in Manhattan at a store called “Book-Off”. Pose as a nude model:

In New York City and other large cities you can promote clubs and and make cash from $400 to $1000 a week. Mow someone’s lawn:

10. You can do this and get paid that day, every where else you’re kind of out of luck on this one.

24. If you find a quarter that is all silver, that coin is worth approximately $5.00 as of March 8, 2013. A dollar per book isn’t much but it’s better than nothing for books that you may not want or have already read.

28. Oh, if you would like to make money writing on hub-pages it will take longer than a day but you can do that by clicking here: earn money writing.

13. People who don’t have money for a hotel still need a place to sleep and shower, believe me they will take your couch over the car seat or a park bench. But, I sold all 150 books for $150 dollars. Pick Fruit and Sell it:

11. Same Day Jobs:

27. Go to the bank and exchange your fiat, paper dollars for quarters.

25. Hey it works, I saw a guy sit in a busy downtown Manhattan Starbucks and I think he took in at least 200 bucks while I watched him over 2½ hours. Beg:

The nice thing about this is that you can do other things while you’re doing it,like babysitting so that you make twice the money for the same time, I’m always thinking!

In the summer, in places like the northwest blackberries grow like weeds
