Kroger da a luz un sitio Web para mamás activas


ComfortsForBaby.com presenta consejos y percepciones para padres de familia
provenientes de la Mamá en Jefe de Comforts, Paula Andruss

EL SITIO WEB, INCLUYENDO LA VERSIÓN EN IDIOMA ESPAÑOL, SE LANZA HOY

CINCINNATI, 13 de Julio, 2011 – Comforts, una línea de productos para bebés de The Kroger Co., está facilitando que las mamás experimentadas compartan sus palabras de sabiduría con otras a través de un sitio web que se lanza hoy.

ComfortsForBaby.com permite a las mamás activas acceder a e intercambiar ideas en línea, ofreciendo una comunidad donde las madres pueden – entre bocanadas de aire – compartir sus percepciones y experiencias en el arte de cuidar recién nacidos, infantes y niños que aprenden a caminar. El sitio web está disponible en los idiomas inglés y español, con este último, diseñado para involucrar específicamente a mamás latinas.

Comforts es la primera marca para bebés, ofrecida por una tienda de abarrotes, en presentar un sitio especialmente para mamás latinas. Más que una simple traducción del inglés al español, el contenido de este sitio está diseñado a la medida de las necesidades e intereses de esta comunidad.

Guiado por una luciérnaga animada juguetona llamada “Flicker,” el sitio web presenta contenido original de y para mamás.

De acuerdo a Paula Andruss, madre de tres niños y “Mamá Comforts en Jefe” oficial del sitio, ComfortsForBaby.com está dirigido a un corte transversal de mamás. Es un lugar donde ellas pueden compartir, apoyarse y aprender unas de otras.

“Todas las mamás están en la búsqueda de lo probado y comprobado y quieren oír las opiniones de otras personas sobre qué funciona, es práctico y realista”, dice Andruss. “ComfortsForBaby es un lugar para aquellas mamás de experiencia que ‘han estado allí y lo han hecho todo’ y que quieren compartir su pericia con otras mamás y desean encontrar apoyo para sí mismas en la comunidad.”

Andruss ayudará a dar forma al contenido editorial del sitio web, a crear artículos originales y a proporcionar percepciones basadas en su experiencia en la vida real como una madre activa. “Siendo yo misma una madre, sé lo que funciona y quiero compartir tanta información como me sea posible para ayudar a otras mamás a sacar el máximo provecho de esos sus días exigentes”, dice Andruss.

Recibir consuelo de parte de mamás experimentadas

El sitio web ofrecerá artículos orientados a dar consejos, tales como cómo aliviar a un bebé que llora o sobre cómo hacer las horas de comida más divertidas y nutritivas. Los artículos enfocados en los recién nacidos, bebés y niños que aprenden a caminar serán actualizados semanalmente.

Otra característica se enfocará en productos. Proporcionará una oportunidad para que las mamás compartan su propia experiencia con otras mamás en línea. “La madres encuentran que las críticas auténticas son extraordinariamente valiosas a la hora de seleccionar productos para sus propios hijos”, dice Andruss.

Proporcionar confort con calidad y ahorros

Para poder ayudar a las mamás a encontrar artículos relacionados con bebés, que cumplan con sus necesidades, el nuevo sitio ofrece información variada sobre Comforts, una línea de productos de calidad para bebés a buenos precios.

Las mamás conscientes de la relación entre precio y calidad encontrarán cupones digitales de forma habitual (descargables directamente a las tarjetas de ahorro de los compradores) para una amplia gama de productos Comforts en el sitio. Y haciendo clic en “Me gusta” en la página de Facebook de ComfortsForBaby, las madres tendrán acceso exclusivo para poder participar y tener oportunidad de ganar en varios concursos, sorteos y promociones que se realizarán durante todo el año.

Comforts ofrece productos apropiados para las necesidades de un bebé desde su primer día de vida hasta  que pasan la etapa de aprender a caminar.

Los visitantes del sitio pueden encontrar detalles sobre el contenido nutritivo de los alimentos para bebé, la naturaleza higiénica de los jabones y champús y sobre las características de seguridad incorporadas en algunos accesorios para bebé como las tazas de entrenamiento, los mordedores y chupones. También hay una sección especial sobre los pañales Touch of Nature de Comforts, una marca de pañales desechables más conciliable con el medioambiente.

Las mamás pueden descubrir, por ejemplo, que la fórmula para bebés de Comforts tiene exactamente el mismo contenido nutritivo que el de las principales marcas del mercado pero que, dado su precio reducido, puede ahorrarles aproximadamente $600 al año.

“El lanzamiento de ComfortsForBaby.com explota efectivamente nuestros años de experiencia en este rubro para ayudar a atender mejor las necesidades de nuestros clientes”, dice Noel Fonseca, Gerente de Marca de Comforts. Nuestra meta es que las mamás activas y experimentadas piensen primero y primordialmente en nosotros para hacer frente a las necesidades de sus hijos, y ComfortsForBaby.com, complementado por Facebook y Twitter, serán recursos valiosísimos para reforzar este posicionamiento de marca.”

Spawned from a suburban Chicago basement in the early ‘70s, Styx would eventually transform into the virtual arena rock prototype by the late ’70s and early ’80s, due to a fondness for big rockers and soaring power ballads.  Some of their biggest hits include “Lady” (#6, 1975), “Come Sail Away” (#8, 1977), “Babe” (#1, 1979), “The Best of Times” (#3, 1981), “Too Much Time On My Hands” (#9, 1981), and “Mr. Roboto” (#3, 1983). Other hits by the band include “Show Me the Way” (#3, 1990), “Don’t Let It End” (#6, 1983) and “Renegade” (#16, 1978). The band has four consecutive albums certified multi-platinum by the RIAA.

Tommy Shaw, James “JY” Young, Lawrence Gowan, Todd Sucherman and Ricky Phillips (along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo), have performed more live since ’99 than all of the previous years of its career combined, including two Super-Bowl appearances, Pollstar Box Office chart-topping tours with Def Leppard, Journey, Boston, REO Speedwagon, and Bad Company.  

The Atlanta Braves 2011 Summer Concert Series presented by Coca-Cola and Delta Air Lines began Opening Weekend with The Avett Brothers and continued throughout the season with Yacht Rock Revue and the B-52’s. 

The Atlanta Braves is Major League Baseball’s winningest franchise since 1991.  During that time, Braves teams have earned 14 division championships, five National League pennants, a World Series title and most recently were the 2010 National League Wild Card Champions.  Based in Atlanta since 1966, the Braves franchise is the longest continuously operating franchise in Major League Baseball. Atlanta Braves games are telecast on FS South, SportSouth, and Peachtree TV.  Radio broadcasts can be heard in Atlanta on 680 the Fan, Rock 100 FM, 93.7 FM and regionally on the Atlanta Braves Radio Network.  Follow the Braves at braves.com, facebook.com/braves, and twitter.com/braves.

Small Businesses Should Take Precautions Now to Avoid Allegations of Online Piracy


NASHVILLE — Small businesses that offer Internet access to their customers should take steps now to avoid allegations of online piracy, according to the National Federation of Independent Business.
 
Record labels, movie studios and other industry groups struck a deal this month under which participating Internet providers will issue warnings to customers whose accounts are allegedly used to steal content. NFIB, the nation’s leading small-business association, is not a party to the agreement.
 
“Small businesses that offer Internet access, such as a coffee shop or a hotel or even a car mechanic with a waiting area, should be aware of the industry’s crackdown on piracy and take steps to ensure their customers aren’t using the service to steal content,” said Valerie Nagoshiner, acting state director of NFIB/Tennessee, the state’s leading small-business association.
 
Under the deal, customers whose accounts are allegedly used for piracy will receive at least five alerts from their Internet provider. 
 
Upon sending the fifth notice, the Internet provider may implement certain “mitigation measures” to stop the alleged piracy, including reducing Internet speeds or redirecting traffic to a special landing page until the customer contacts the Internet provider to discuss the issue.
 
“Internet service providers wouldn’t have to pull the plug on a customer after the sixth notice, but that’s a possibility, and that’s where businesses have to watch out,” said Beth Milito, senior executive counsel for NFIB.
 
“Small businesses rely on their Internet connections the same way they do the telephone,” she said. “It’s how they communicate with customers and vendors. It’s where they do business.”

Businesses can challenge a notice by paying a $35 filing fee and requesting an independent review, or they may challenge any action in court, but doing so would be time-consuming and take resources away from the business, Milito said.
 
“That’s why small businesses need to take precautions to prevent customers or even employees from using their Internet connection to steal content,” she said.
 
One easy way to discourage abuse is for businesses that offer Wi-Fi can prevent people who aren’t customers from using their Internet connection by requiring a password, Milito said.

“For example, they could print a password on the receipt and change it periodically, to prevent non-customers from using the service,” she said.
 
Businesses can also block access to certain websites and types of websites, Milito said. “This requires a little bit of know-how on the part of the small-business owner, and it may accidentally block access to legitimate websites, but it also can discourage people from using a business’ network to steal content,” she said.
 
“With more and more people carrying smartphones and even tablets, free Wi-Fi can help a small business attract and keep customers,” Milito said, “but unless a business owner uses commonsense and takes precautions, those customers could come at a hefty price.”

Hispanics targeted by robbers in Knoxville


KNOXVILLE.–The victims remain in silence. Their fear of retaliation overcomes the indignation of being the target of street robbers. The area is Lonsdale.
Concerned Knoxville citizens whose friends and family members are counted as some of the known victims are trying to spread the word within the Hispanic community and local Police officers about at least 4 cases of robbery with the use of knifes and fire arms.
The way things seems to happen starts with a pull over in the night hours. Hispanics are being pulled over by a car that makes them believe it is an undercover officer performing ‘her’ job.
A woman dressed in uniform comes out of the car that has blinking lights and ask the Hispanics to get out of their car. Then the fake officer with the help of another person, -an African- american according to our sources, show firearms and hold a knife to the neck of the scared driver. The assault is performed and the robbers leave with the threat of shooting the victims if they attempt to follow them.

The beautiful patriotic hymns we sing at church


“We sang beautiful patriotic hymns that only the adults knew because the songs are no longer taught at school.”

       

This was part of an email describing the wonderful patriotic services held in a rural church in central Kentucky. The songs they were speaking of were basics to American patriotism: “My Country Tis Of Thee,” “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “America the Beautiful,” and “God Bless America.” I spoke with young people in my home area of northwest Louisiana and they confirmed also that patriotic songs are not taught in their schools.

        We, the American taxpayers, are paying for public education where patriotism is considered politically incorrect! This is doubly true when patriotism involves mentioning God as in the songs listed above.

        Several years ago, I saw a chart of the history of the national averages on the ACT and SAT scores. These scores peaked and began their downward spiral very close to the occurrence of one major American educational event. That event was the establishment of the national Department of Education.

        As the control of education has been taken away from local and state governments and given to the federal government our educational systems have declined. History books have totally eliminated unedited copies of original documents like the Declaration of Independence since it speaks of “unalienable rights” endowed by a Creator God. The text of the Mayflower Compact is excluded because it is way too religious. Local PTAs are usually involved with fundraising and other school benefit projects, but have little or no input into what is taught in the classroom.

        There are many movements today to “Take America Back” from those who are destroying her. But until we take back the educational system, we will not be able to take back the nation.

Be Aware: PORN HARMS Campaign launched by Morality In Media


Washington, DC – Morality in Media today announced the Be Aware: PORN HARMS National Awareness Campaign, a four-week educational effort beginning on July 11, 2011.

 

“Pornography is silently and secretly destroying men, women, and children.  It is a pandemic ruining lives, marriages and families,” said Patrick Trueman, President of Morality in Media, the leading member of the War On Illegal Pornography Coalition. “Our now Pornified society has eroded the cultural norms in America.  This harm must end and that is why we are launching the Be Aware: PORN HARMS campaign,” he added.

“The pandemic of harm from pornography demonstrates a critical need for enforcement of current federal laws against illegal hardcore pornography,” said Trueman. 

“Each week of our campaign, we will focus on a specific harm of pornography: porn addiction, harms to children, increased sexual trafficking and violence against women,” said Dawn Hawkins, Executive Director of Morality in Media.  “Every day we receive messages from the victims of pornography – men caught in the ravages of addiction, women and children raped, women trafficked and made to perform degrading sexual acts on tape, broken families and devastated hearts,” she added.

Hawkins said there will be over 25 events during the month, from local rallies to webinars to live online conferences.  Participating groups will provide hundreds of free subscriptions to addiction recovery services and filtering software.

Morality in Media will provide billboards, signs and web posters at no cost to all supporters.  Those participating in live online events include: Candeo, Fight The New Drug, Content Watch, Bsecure, as well as law enforcement leaders and academic scholars.

Iraqi Artifacts Returned


Terracotta plaques and other artifacts seized during a 2006 investigation were returned to the government of Iraq today in a Washington, D.C. ceremony that celebrated a successful law enforcement operation and the cultural significance of antiquities that are thousands of years old.

 “These artifacts are truly invaluable,” said Ron Hosko, special agent in charge of the Criminal Division in our Washington Field Office. “The FBI is pleased to be able to return them to their rightful owner.”

The artifacts—some small enough to be held in the palm of one’s hand—were seized during a public corruption investigation conducted by our International Contract Corruption Task Force, a multi-agency task force whose mission is to stop fraud and corruption related to U.S. reconstruction efforts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere overseas.

The artifacts were illegally taken in 2004 by Department of Defense contractors who were traveling through the Babylon region of Iraq. Investigators learned that the contractors collected the items and used them as gifts and bribes or sold them to other contractors who then smuggled them into the United States. Two of the contractors were sentenced to prison for their roles in the fraud scheme.

Mayor candidate Madeline Rogero releases quarterly financial disclosure


KNOXVILLE, TN — Knoxville mayoral candidate Madeline Rogero will file financial disclosure reports today for the State of Tennessee and the City of Knoxville.

The state-required second quarter financial disclosure report, covering funds received from April 1 through June 30, shows a total of $63,911 in donations from 448 individual supporters, with expenses of $37,649 and cash on hand of $86,812.   Overall, 833 individuals have contributed $160,411 to the campaign.

“I am thrilled with our momentum and for the broad-based grassroots support from across Knoxville and all walks of life,” Rogero said.  “We have now raised twice as much money as we did at this same time in 2003, and as much as we did in that entire campaign where we were outspent four to one.”

“I’m used to delivering great value on a tight budget,” Rogero said.  “That’s how we will run a winning campaign, and how I will govern our city.” 

Rogero’s cash on hand reflects $77,912 available for the primary election, and $8,900 that must be held for the general election. (*See explanation below.)

Sixty-six percent of individual contributions are $100 or less, and 84% of individual contributions are $250 or less. The average contribution per person is $193. 

*Prior to May 31, individual contributions were limited by state law to a maximum of $1,000 to a candidate for the primary election (Sept 27) and $1,000 that could only be spent on the general election (November 8). For donations received after May 31, state law allows a maximum of $1,400 from individuals per election. Any funds received in excess of $1400 for the primary, must be held until after the primary and only spent if the candidate goes on to the general election.

 

Early voting starts September 7.

Election Day: Tuesday, September 27

Students Say: Don’t Deport Our Future


COMMUNITY STANDS UP FOR NASHVILLE STUDENT FACING DEPORTATION
AND CALLS FOR AN END TO THE NEEDLESS SEPARATION OF FAMILIES 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. —On Thursday, more than 20 students, teachers, and community supporters met outside the Davidson County Sheriff’s office to call for an end to the deportation of students and their families. A delegation of recent high school graduates accompanied Mercedes Gonzalez, a local student who is currently facing deportation, to deliver her graduation cap to the Sheriff’s Office with the message: Don’t deport our city’s future. The students explained that Mercedes almost did not graduate from high school and her educational future is now at stake.

Mercedes grew up in Nashville after her family left Mexico, fleeing from threats of violence.  Now 18 years old, she faces deportation. On May 15th, 2011, a normal Sunday after church, a police officer pulled Mercedes over for driving less than 10 miles over the speed limit, and chose to arrest her rather than issuing a ticket. Mercedes and her family were devastated because she was supposed to graduate from high school that Saturday. In jail, Mercedes was targeted for deportation because of the sheriff’s 287g program.  Immigration officials told Mercedes that she would never go back to school, graduate from high school or see her family again. Students from the youth-led group JUMP and other community supporters rallied to get Mercedes out of jail in time for her graduation.

“While Mercedes was in her jail cell thinking she would miss her high school graduation, President Obama was in Memphis delivering a commencement address encouraging every student to earn a high school diploma,” said Karla Vasquez a leader with JUMP and a student at Lipscomb University. She continued, “Mercedes also believes in the importance of education. She wants to go to college and become a nurse to give back to the only community she knows as home.”

Outside the sheriff’s office, other community leaders and allies held signs reading “EDUCATION NOT DEPORTATION” and “DON’T DEPORT OUR CITY’S FUTURE.”  They called on President Obama to stop deporting students and their families and for Davidson County to end its 287g program, which needlessly separates hardworking families and hurts our community.

After delivering the graduation cap, the students and their supporters walked to the courthouse to educate the community and ask for their support to keep this student, and many other Tennessee students like her, from being taken from their homes. Passers-by signed the petition in support of Mercedes and pledged to spread the word and stop her deportation.

Mercedes Gonzalez, the Nashville student facing deportation, stated, “I am truly blessed to have the support of the community and other students. It means a lot to me that they are willing to walk and stand in solidarity with me, for my future, and for the future of our city.”

TV’s “Secret Millionaire” Returns to Joy of Music School


Surprise 2010 donor to check in on charity, share books, stories and frozen yogurt

 

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — July 1, 2011 — She seemed to be a volunteer of humble means, an ordinary woman whose good deeds were being filmed by a crew purporting to create a documentary. But instead she brought a huge surprise, a lot of love, and some greatly appreciated cash for the Joy of Music School last summer. The woman, Dani Johnson, is a millionaire — which she revealed while presenting the School with a $40,000 donation. Her generous act was captured by the cameras of the ABC Television program “Secret Millionaire” and broadcast to over 13 million people in March.

This week Dani Johnson is returning to the place that inspired her, where the art and discipline of music transform young lives.

Tennessee Man Sentenced to Life in Prison for Racially Motivated Killing


Mickey Wright was a Shelby County Construction Code Officer. He was last seen on April 17, 2001. Mickey was also a Shelby County Reserve Deputy. His body has never been found, and now we know it never will be found. Dale Mardis confessed to police of dismembering and burning Wright’s body in a dispute over Code violations. —May God bless him in eternity and to his family peace on earth.

 

WASHINGTON—The Justice Department announced today that Dale Mardis, 57, was sentenced today to life in prison, with no possibility of parole, for the racially motivated killing of Shelby County, Tenn., Code Enforcement Officer Mickey Wright. Mardis was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Bernice Donald.

Mardis pleaded guilty on March 21, 2011, to the racially motivated killing of Officer Wright. Last week, federal prosecutors and investigators discovered that Mardis murdered another man, Henry Ackerman, in the summer of 1998. They confronted Mardis with the new information on July 1, 2011, and Mardis confessed to the second murder.

Judge Donald imposed the life sentence after Mardis dropped his objections to the sentencing recommendation and admitted that his killing of Wright was first-degree murder. In addition to agreeing to the federal life sentence, Mardis also agreed to plead guilty to first-degree murder for the murder of Ackerman in Shelby County Criminal Court, and to be sentenced to life for that killing as well.

Mardis murdered Mickey Wright on April 17, 2001, and was federally indicted for the killing in January 2008 after pleading no contest to a state court murder charge.

“This defendant committed a heinous act of hate-filled violence, and today’s life sentence sends an unmistakable message that such conduct will not be tolerated in our society,” said Thomas E. Perez, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division. “I am hopeful that this sentence will bring some sense of justice for Mickey Wright’s loved ones.”

“Although nothing can ever undo their tragic loss, Mickey Wright’s family can take some comfort that Dale Mardis will never again set foot outside of a prison and never again breathe free air,” said U.S. Attorney Edward L. Stanton, III. “This life sentence marks an important day for the Wright family and for all the people of Memphis. Dale Mardis’s fate proves to the community that hate-crime murders remain a top priority of my office and of the whole federal government.”

“Brutal hate crimes like the one committed by Dale Mardis tear at the fabric of our society, and the Memphis Office of the FBI, through its Civil Rights Task Force, will aggressively pursue those who commit such crimes, aiding victims and helping to heal communities in the process,” said Special Agent in Charge of the Memphis FBI Field Office Amy Hess.

The case was investigated by the FBI and the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department. FBI Special Agent Tracey Harris and former Shelby County Detective Sergeant Joe T. Everson were the lead investigators on the case. The case was prosecuted by U.S. Attorney Edward L. Stanton, III; Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen C. Parker, head of the Civil Rights Unit at the U.S. Attorney’s Office; and Jonathan T. Skrmetti, who began work on the case as a Trial Attorney with the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice and who is now an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Memphis.

Knoxville’s Fleet Service Department receives national honor


 KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The City of Knoxville’s Fleet Service Department recently received the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence Blue Seal Certification.

It marks the third year in a row that the city’s Fleet Services Light Shop has received the honor, which indicates that more than three-quarters of its mechanics hold at least one individual ASE certification and are at the top of their game. The certification also requires an ASE certified mechanic in every service area.

At one point Knoxville was among only a handful of municipalities in Tennessee to hold the sought-after recognition.

Keith Shields, deputy director for the city’s Fleet Services Department, said the department doesn’t take the Blue Seal Certification for granted no matter how often it receives the recognition.

I think it is a large kudos to our mechanics and their dedication to providing the best service possible to the City of Knoxville’s vehicles and to making sure they are staying abreast of the technology involved,” Shields said.

The shop’s mechanics have completed continuing education courses and successfully passed tests in several different areas to earn individual ASE certifications.

The National Institute for Automotive Service – a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of vehicle repair – offers tests in 40 categories ranging from transmission repair and suspension and steering to electrical systems and structural analysis and damage repair for light and heavy vehicles.

We have some master technicians who have eight or nine (certifications),” Shields said. “Our mechanics are providing the most bang for the buck for the taxpayer dollars.”

The city began encouraging its mechanics and other staffers eligible for ASE certifications to take continuing education courses a few years ago. The city pays for the testing fees.

Shields said the environment of continually increasing skills and knowledge makes for a stronger staff of mechanics that can make the correct repairs quickly. It also helps them diagnose and deal with more complex issues that might have forced the city to send vehicles to dealerships for repairs in past years.

That, he said, saves money for the city and its taxpayers.

We’re not going to use the trial and error method here,” Shields said. “We want to repair them right the first time. They are better able to diagnose the problems and make the correct repairs.”

Fleet Services’ mechanics are divided among the Light Shop, which works with vehicles under a ton, and a Heavy Shop which deals with everything else. The city has a fleet of about 1,400 vehicles including everything from fire department ladder trucks and heavy trucks used by public service to police cruisers, mid-sized sedans and small cars, vans and mowing machines.

The Fleet Services Department is committed to continuing to expand its abilities.

When I think of all the new technology that comes out every day, we have to stay ahead…so we don’t get left behind,” Shields said.

Mayor Dean celebrates opening of a Goodlettsville Branch Library


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Mayor Karl Dean will give remarks at the ribbon-cutting of the new Goodlettsville Branch Library, 205 Rivergate Parkway, at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 8.

 The new 16,000-square-foot building is four times the size of the current Goodlettsville branch and was built in accordance with LEED Silver Certification guidelines. One special feature is an interactive history wall, which allows visitors to access video, audio, photos and text documents that highlight Goodlettsville’s history. The building also features a children’s area, teen area, more than 35 public-use computers and a 100-person meeting room. It is the first library in the Nashville Public Library system with a café-style coffee and vending area.

Two public art installations, funded by the Metro Arts Commission Percent for Art fund, were integrated into the new library design. Nashville artist Carrie McGee created the sculpture suspended over the round information desk. The acrylic and stainless steel sculpture, entitled Continuum, is made up of a series of “pages” that incorporate historical images of Goodlettsville. The installation is the city’s first piece of neighborhood art. A second piece will be dedicated later in the fall.

Educación en materia del abuso cibernético para los padres


By Technopadres

Mi hija actualmente está aprendiendo todo lo relacionado con el abuso cibernético en su clase de sexto grado. Aunque algunos de los ejemplos y de las historias de la vida real que llegan a discutir pueden ser un poco impresionantes para una niña de 11 años, es un tópico de vital importancia para una generación que considera a la Internet con un segundo hogar.

Al leer algunas de sus tareas colegiales – ¿En dónde ocurre más abuso cibernético en línea? ¿Qué haces si ves que alguien más está siendo abusado cibernéticamente? – se me ocurrió que sería genial si los padres pudieran atender estas clases, también.

Los padres necesitan ser las primeras personas en las cuales los niños puedan apoyarse cuando las cosas salen mal, pero a menudo ellos son la última opción para los niños cuando se trata del abuso cibernético. Muchas veces, los niños tienen miedo a que sus padres vayan a reaccionar de más y que llamen a otros padres, que hablen directamente con otros chicos, o que les quiten sus privilegios de Internet (castigando, de esa manera, a la víctima). A veces reaccionarán menos, pensando en que solamente es un caso de los niños siendo niños como de costumbre.

Tan pronto como tus hijos empiezan a usar una computadora, un teléfono inteligente, o inclusive un teléfono celular habilitado para mensajes de texto, debes de hablar con ellos acerca del uso correcto e incorrecto de cada aparato. Déjales saber que pueden apoyarse en ti, sin temor a ninguna repercusión, si ven algo inapropiado. Hazlos sentirse seguros y déjales saber que estás ahí para cualquier tipo de situación.

Afortunadamente, muchas escuelas ahora emplean a consejeros y guías que están entrenados para detectar los abusos cibernéticos y para enseñar maneras de cómo prevenir o neutralizar situaciones dañinas. Pero los padres nunca deben de pensar que lo pueden dejar todo en manos de la escuela. No importa qué tan bien entrenados estén los profesores y los consejeros, nunca pueden sustituir al cariño paterno y al refugio seguro del hogar.

Los padres también deben de saber que sus chicos tienen las mismas probabilidades de ser una víctima, que las que tienen de ser un abusador cibernético. Quizá cambien entre uno y otro rol, molestando a otros chicos para “desquitarse.” Algunos chicos pueden ni siquiera estar conscientes de que sus acciones en línea equivalen a hostigamiento o abuso, creyendo que solamente están haciendo cosas que todo el mundo hace.

Si de hecho averiguas que tus hijos están siendo abusados cibernéticamente, hazte dos preguntas: ¿Están en riesgo de un daño físico? y ¿Cómo lo están manejando emocionalmente?

Si hay alguna indicación o amenazas de daño físico, entonces es un asunto inmediato para hacer cumplir las leyes. Recolecta cualquier evidencia que puedas y asegúrate de que tus hijos estén monitoreados 24 horas al día hasta que la amenaza sea eliminada.

EL daño emocional es a menudo mucho más difícil de diagnosticar y de manejar, y puede tomar más tiempo en disiparse. Una vez más, los padres necesitan apoyar sin juzgar. Puede ser que no haya clases de abuso cibernético para los padres, pero es un tema en donde todos necesitamos hacer nuestra tarea.

SALUD DE LA MUJER

El acto sexual es una parte normal y saludable de la vida. Sin embargo, muchas mujeres tienen problemas con este acto tan importante.

Si está teniendo problemas con el acto sexual y se siente preocupada o angustiada por ello, tal vez quiera encontrar una solución. Algunos problemas sexuales se pueden resolver por su cuenta o con su pareja. Para otros, es buena idea acudir a un doctor u otro profesional de la salud.

La Respuesta Sexual

Mucha gente cree que el acto sexual comienza con el deseo, que produce la excitación sexual y después el orgasmo. Aunque este puede ser el caso para los hombres, algunos estudios indican que las respuestas sexuales de las mujeres son más complejas.

Para muchas mujeres, el deseo físico no siempre es el punto inicial. Una mujer puede sentirse motivada a tener relaciones sexuales como una manera de sentirse cerca de su pareja o revelar sus sentimientos. El deseo físico del acto sexual es posible que no ocurra hasta después de que haya comenzado la actividad sexual.

Una mujer podría nosentirse motivada a tener relaciones sexuales si cree que la situación no está bien, o si se siente insegura. No responder sexualmente puede ser la manera en que su cuerpo le dice que detenga la actividad.

Además, muchas mujeres dicen que se sienten satisfechas aún si no tienen un orgasmo durante el acto sexual. Los aspectos físicos y emocionales del acto sexual le brindan placer aún si no ocurre el orgasmo.

Sin embargo, la falta de orgasmos es inquietante para muchas mujeres. El orgasmo puede ser difícil de lograr a partir del acto sexual solamente.

Muchas mujeres necesitan más estimulación que solo el acto sexual: besos, caricias y toques en las áreas sensibles, como los senos y el clítoris, para tener un orgasmo. Es importante que ambos miembros de la pareja entiendan que el acto sexual incluye otras actividades además del coito.

Los problemas con el acto sexual sólo son inquietantes si le causan angustia o preocupación. Es posible que el problema sexual no afecte su vida de ninguna manera.

Sin embargo, si afecta su bienestar y la relación con su pareja y le preocupan estos sentimientos, es posible que quiera buscar una solución.

Ud. sola o con su pareja puede abordar un problema sexual.

Edúquense. Acudan a una biblioteca para obtener libros sobre el acto sexual. Aprendan sobre sus cuerpos y cómo funcionan.
