Raspberry Ketone Frenzy

See My Before and After Pictures to Prove that it Works!

A dietary supplement containing compounds from red raspberries has become nearly impossible to find in stores since Dr. Mehmet Oz proclaimed it a fat-buster and "The No. 1 Miracle in a Bottle" on his television show.

"I never understood how powerful it could be," Oz told his studio and television audience in comments that some nutritionists have attacked as hype, unsupported by any human studies.

The raspberry ketones that give the characteristic raspberry aroma and flavor to soft drinks, puddings and ice creams, also can melt away the pounds, according to Lisa Lynn, a personal trainer and fitness expert who promoted them on an episode of "The Dr. Oz Show" that aired in early February and re-ran last week.

Lynn, who sells her own line of LynFit Nutrition supplements (one of which contains raspberry ketones) described the compounds as "very healthy" with "no side effects" and said she's seen them produce results in her clients in as few as five days. The pills enable the body to "burn fat easier."

That was enough to send TV viewers running to local health food stores in search of a bottle. But many found empty shelves. The General Nutrition Center (GNC) store in the busy Santa Monica Place shopping center in California was holding its last bottle Sunday for a customer, which disappointed an environmental consultant who came up empty-handed after searching at several health and nutrition stores, which typically sell the pills for about $12 to $20 a bottle, depending on quantity and dosage.

Apparently, many weight-conscious people who follow a healthy diet came away with the same message about getting better results from the pills. But dietary experts maintain there's no substitute for long-lasting dietary changes and increased physical activity; they also worry about the absence of human studies establishing raspberry ketones' effectiveness as well as safety.

For now, the reputations of products like Raspberry Ketone Plus and Raspberry Ketone Ultra rest on anecdotes and two studies conducted on mice put on a high-fat diet. Japanese researchers reported in 2005 that raspberry ketone "prevents and improves obesity and fatty liver," by boosting the breakup of fat cells. Korean researchers reported in 2010 that raspberry ketone increased fat cells' secretion of a hormone called adiponectin that regulates the processing of sugars and fats in the blood.http://abcnews.go.com/Health/Diet/raspberry-ketones-frenzy/story?id=16074044#.UGpJd03R4sc

Raspberry Ketone- Recommended by Dr. Oz

Raspberry Ketone increases the secretion of adiponectin, which is known to support energy metabolism. Taking just one Raspberry Ketone capsule twice daily gives you more ketone power than one large bowl of fresh berries. The recommended serving is 100 mgs twice daily. (I only took one a day.) As with any weight management program, Raspberry Ketones should be used in conjunction with proper nutrition and exercise. I joined a local gym and worked out 3 times a week for 1 hour.

What are Raspberry Ketones?

Raspberry ketones are enzymes that are found only in raspberries. Just as grapes and red wine contain resveratrol, so too raspberries are another of the superfruits that contain a unique enzyme that can provide an amazing number of health benefits to those who consume them. Raspberries have been eaten throughout history by people around the world, and many native cultures on every continent have used raspberries in remedies and treatments due to the fact that they are so beneficial to the body. Only recently was the enzyme Raspberry Ketone discovered, but the berries have been used for ages as a means of dealing with a host of disorders.

Passing the TExES Principal Exam

If you are finishing up your Master's degree and preparing to start your career as a school administrator but all you lack is passing the principal exam, here is your answer.  The book Passing the Principal TExES Examination: Keys to Certification and School Leadership was written to help educators in Texas to pass the principal TExES.  The book is based on domains and competencies provided through Texas laws and developed by the Texas State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC).

What I like most about this book is that it gives you practice questions to judge your knowledge of certain topics which are down-to-earth and real life issues we all face as a principal.  Second, it provides you with a plan on how to prepare for the test and what to do each week prior to the test.

I have seen several reviews on this book and it has proven successful with several educators who are now principals in Texas schools.

Here are just a few items you will learn in this book:

1.  Communication
2.  Community Relations
3.  Values and Ethics
4.  Curriculum Planning
5.  Instructional Leadership and Management

If you are interested in purchasing this book on Amazon, here is a quick link.

Bullying in School by Principal Principles

Bullying in School

Having been a principal for 6 year now I have seen bullying on my campus and worked to create a safe learning environment on my campus.  We all need to work together to stop bullying.  Here is my slogan:  STOP BULLYING.

What is Bullying?

Bullying is unwanted aggressive behavior.  The behavior is often repeated or has the potential to be repeated.  This includes physical, emotional and psychological behaviors such as threats, spreading rumors and physical contact.

Effects on Bullying

Bullying can have large emotional impacts including depression, fear and in some reported cases-suicide.  It also interferes with the student's ability to learn effectively in the classroom.  This kind of behavior in the classroom impedes not only on the student's safety but also on his/her ability to learn.

What can the school do to prevent or stop bullying?

It is everyone's responsibility to stop bullying or to prevent it from happening.  This includes teachers, administrators, parents and other students.  We need to recognize when bullying is taking place and react quickly by investigating the matter.  Bullying should be taken seriously and in a timely manner.  The school building must be a safe environment.  We must be able to create an environment where students feel comfortable seeking help and reporting cases of bullying.  

A few steps to take to prevent or stop bullying:

1.  Survey your campus by generating paper or electronic surveys.  If a student is being bullied and afraid to report it in person, a survey is a great way to get the message to the office officials.  A survey allows you to really know what kind of bullying is happening and how many cases are being unseen.  This is valuable information and should be analyzed and a well-designed plan of action implemented.

2.  Have campus assemblies that promote a Bully-Free-School.  Assemblies are a great way to gather students together and discuss a no tolerance for bullying.  Create a motto for your school.  Our school has a STOP BULLYING stop sign posted in every classroom.  Implement a safe way for students to report bullying.  For example,  bully boxes located in the halls and library where students drop a note inside the box.  This kind of system helps students to feel safe by not coming to the office in fear of being seen by other students.  

3.  Rules must be in place and followed.  Consequences for bullying must be implemented and carried through each time.  What are you school's code of conduct policies on bully?  Hang posters and slogans up around the campus reminding students that this is a No Bully Zone.

4. Train your staff and parents on what to do when they see bullying.  I recommend an investment into a bully prevention program.  This program is not only designed for students but for teachers and parents.  Weekly or monthly activities and lessons designed to address bullying should be planned.  This helps students to be reminded of the rules and consequences of bullying but also helps to prevent it from happening.

5. Support and offer guidance counseling to students being a victim of bullying.  

6.  Parents must be informed of any cases of bullying happening while at school.  Keeping parents informed is very important.  

If someone you know is a victim of bullying, report it immediately to the school principal, teacher, parent or other adult.
