“GirlRO’S Activist Team” is a one of a kind, standalone original comic in the same vein as “Hero’s”, but with a brand-new spin that includes two intertwining stories. “GirlRO’S” were bred to possess enhanced traits and abilities, which allows them to produce stronger than normal antibodies and other genome traits, with the hopes of preventing future pandemic epidemics, with missions of intervention preventions.
Episode 1, “ORIGNS”The birth of “GirlRO’S” originated in march of 2000, after The National Human Genome Research Institute awarded a $250 million-dollar research grant to Lucile Adams-Campbell Epigenetics Genome Institute, for a (DNA) subject paring research study that may lead to enhanced antibodies in their test subject’s offspring.
The story starts with a social media marketing campaign that is seeking volunteers (looking for paid research volunteers). Ten (10) volunteer conceiving test couples were selected with 10 alternates, based on the strength of their genome traits that each subjects have.
They were matched with partners that share the need for each others genome traits, which, in theory, will produce children with only strong genome traits.
Five (5) males and Five (5) females selected.Using the theory of Epigenetics, trails carried out at the LAC Epigenetics Genome Institute campus, headed by the managing Director, Professor Sensor Knowsit.
The paring couple’s kids inherited genomic traits will hopefully provide them with the ability to produce vaccines, that may prevent virus and bacterial infections prior to any epidemic.
“GirlRO’S” Extraordinary Adventures is a story about the exploits of these five young multiracial females, plus a transgender male trained under the epigenetic theory study.
“GirlRO’S Activist Team” are advocates for fighting injustice that harms others, with a priority of helping abused girls and women around the world as they master their inherited enhanced traits and other trained abilities.
Episode 2 “Campus Connections” is about all the paring parents seeing the Campus and meeting their partners for the first time, and the birth and growth of the children, that will become the Activist Team “GirlRO’S” under managing Director Professor Sensor Knowsit, and each of the other study subjects.
The missions that “GirlRO’S Activist Team” undertake and expands in each new Episode Issue of the Comic Book, with a variety of challenging, yet ongoing possibilities for helping others.
“The next big idea in health and social prevention against young people, with a focus on girls” “GirlRO’S” G FORCE” Fan Club Support Team, Is Vital In Helping With Their Intervention Prevention Mission” says Feature Editor, Waiting Room, USA Magazine.

What Is Aromatherapy
by Emily Cronkleton April 30, 2022
Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Sometimes it’s called essential oil therapy.
Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It enhances both physical and emotional health, we recommed “Scent Bomb”.
Aromatherapy is thought of as both an art and a science. Recently, aromatherapy has gained more recognition in the fields of science and medicine.
How long has Aromatherapy been around?
Humans have used aromatherapy for thousands of years. Ancient cultures in China, India, Egypt, and elsewhere incorporated aromatic plant components in resins, balms, and oils. These natural substances were used for medical and religious purposes. They were known to have both physical and psychological benefits.
Essential oils distillation is attributed to the Persians in the 10th century, though the practice may have been in use for a long time prior to this. Information about essential oil distillation was published in the 16th century in Germany. French physicians in the 19th century recognized the potential of essential oils in treating disease.
Medical doctors became more established in the 19th century and focused on using chemical drugs. However, the French and German doctors still recognized the role of natural botanicals in treating illness.
The term “Aromatherapy” was coined by a French perfumer and chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé in a book he wrote on the topic that was published in 1937. He had previously discovered the healing potential of lavender in treating burns. The book discusses the use of essential oils in treating medical conditions.
How does Aromatherapy treatment work?
Aromatherapy works through the sense of smell and skin absorption using products such as these:
diffusers, aromatic spritzers, inhalers, bathing salts, body oils, creams, or lotions for massage or topical application, facial steamers, hot and cold compresses clay masks, You can use these alone or in any combination.
There are nearly one hundred types of essential oils available. Generally, people use the most popular oils. Essential oils are available online, in health food stores, and in some regular supermarkets. It’s important to buy from a reputable producer since the oils aren’t regulated by the FDA.
This ensures you’re buying a quality product that is 100 percent natural. It shouldn’t contain any additives or synthetic ingredients. Check out essential oils available on HousTone Publishing.
We recommend “Scent Bomb”s products each with 100 percent natural essential oils and has an array and variety of scents with unique healing properties, uses, and effects. Combining essential oils to create a synergistic blend creates even more benefits for the mind body and spirit.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“We believe “The Desiree” is well on her way to continuing that trend; we “Struck Gold” with the signing, says Jed Minnon, A & R Manager. http://www.houstonerecords.com
One of the key elements in HousTone Records´s platform is that all artists agree to record two Top 10 well-known cover songs for every CD that the record label releases.This allows the artist we partner with to be judged by listeners of music and songs they may be familiar with and then explore the artist’s original music.
Press: Jay Free, Beat Writer @ WRUSA
“I recently did an interview with “The Desiree’s” Publicist, Mary A. Hartly, and found out that she was hard at work. She has been rehearsing with her band for live shows later in 2021 and shared with me the show’s song set-list.
but the distinctive tone and control made it clear that it’s her voice that creativily sang the different stories she performs.
(This is how people who are addicted to using/ smoking Tobacco products rationalize using/smoking Tobacco products.)
Tobacco smoking has been fingered (e.g., U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare [U.S. DHEW], 1964) as a major cause of mortality and morbidity, responsible for an estimated 434,000 deaths per year in the United States (Centers for Disease Control [CDC], 1991a).
But, did you know that the so much publicized 400,000+ “smoking-related’ deaths in the US simply does not exist?
That number is a guess… a heavily slanted, politically manipulated estimate using a computer model programmed with the assumptions of causality in synergy with the current political agenda against tobacco.
It DOES NOT represent an actual body count.
Some claim that about 10 million people in the United States have died from causes attributed to smoking (including heart disease, emphysema, and other respiratory diseases) since the first Surgeon General’s report on smoking and health in 1964 with 2 million of these deaths the result of lung cancer alone.
In fact, they like to say that “Cigarette smoking is the single most preventable cause of premature death in the United States.”
They declare one in every five deaths in the United States is smoking related. Every year, smoking kills more than 276,000 men and 142,000 women. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Smoking-attributable mortality and years of potential life lost–United States, 1990. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report 1993;42(33):645-8.)
How do they explain why non-smokers (75% of heart disease deaths) die from heart disease?
Smoking Causes Cancer
“Ninety-five per cent of lung cancer deaths are due directly to cigarette smoking”, according to Dr Desmond Carney, oncologist at University College, Dublin, and secretary general of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer.
Women who smoke increase their risk of dying from lung cancer by nearly 12 times and the risk of dying from bronchitis and emphysema by more than 10 times. Between 1960 and 1990, deaths from lung cancer among women have increased by more than 400%–exceeding breast cancer deaths in the mid-1980s.(Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report 1993;42(44)) The American Cancer Society predicts that 80,000 women will develop lung cancer this year and 67,000 will die from it, as compared to 43,500 deaths from breast cancer.
Men who smoke increase their risk of death from lung cancer by more than 22 times and from bronchitis and emphysema by nearly 10 times. Smoking triples the risk of dying from heart disease among middle-aged men and women. (CDC Smoking-attributable mortality and years of potential life lost–United States, 1990. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report 1993; 42(33):645-8.)
Now that you’re totally terrified,
take a look at it another way…
70%of all cancers occur in non-smokers.
The National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health report in the 1995 Information Please Almanac states that only 30% of all cancers are caused by smoking.
Did you know that United Nations statistics have listed Japan and South Korea respectively as first and second in both life expectancy and tobacco consumption? If smoking were really as dreadful, harmful, and dangerous as the Anti-Smoking propaganda blitz claims it to be . . . how can this be true?!
The Japanese smoke twice as much as Americans and yet have half the number of lung cancers per 100,000 people.
Why do some people get lung cancer — even if they never smoke?
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer deaths worldwide. The American Thoracic Society points out that over 75 percent of lung cancers are small cell lung cancers (NSCLC) and have an average overall 35-year survival rate of only 14 percent. Previous research has shown that about 90 percent of NSCLC appear to be activated by specific signaling pathways in lung tissue. The new study by Dr. Cho and his research team found that high amounts of dietary inorganic phosphates actually stimulate those same cancer-triggering pathways.
New research suggests eating a lot of processed foods containing inorganic phosphates could be the explanation. In research published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, published by the American Thoracic Society, scientists from Seoul National University conclude that a diet high in inorganic phosphates, which are found in a host of processed foods including meats, cheeses, beverages, and bakery products, might spur the growth of lung cancer. The researchers also suggest the food additive may contribute to the development of malignancies in people predisposed to lung cancer.
While living organisms need a moderate level of phosphate, the use of inorganic phosphates as a food additive to increase water retention and improve food texture artificially has soared over the past decade. That means the average American diet is loaded with excess amounts of phosphates. “In the 1990s, phosphorous-containing food additives contributed an estimated 470 mg per day to the average daily adult diet. However, phosphates are currently being added much more frequently to a large number of processed foods, including meats, cheeses, beverages, and bakery products. As a result, depending on individual food choices, phosphorous intake could be increased by as much as 1000 mg per day,” Dr. Cho explained in the media statement.
In truth, smoking is not a leading cause of cancer.
Lung cancer is primarily a condition developed in old age, with average age of onset age 65, according to American Cancer Society literature. It’s estimated more people will die of lung cancer in populations of older Americans, and where older Americans live, there more lung cancer deaths will be estimated. More incidences of lung cancer and deaths from lung cancer are likely to occur in Florida than in any other state. That’s where the highest percentage of retirees lives. And that’s where ACS estimates more lung cancers will occur. Lung cancer is a disease of old age, not smoking.
Research has now firmly linked many of today’s cancers with tainted virus vaccinations given in the early 1950s. In 1960, researchers discovered that the polio vaccine distributed to certain states was infected with another virus called “Simian Virus 40.” SV-40 is a monkey virus that is not normally found in humans. Unknown at the time, it was present in hundreds of rhesus monkeys that were used to grow and harvest the polio vaccine. Injected into research animals, the SV-40 virus causes brain and lung cancers. Now, some forty years later, its effect on humans is just being investigated.
- Michele Carbone, Assistant Professor of Pathology at Loyola University in Chicago, has recently isolated fragments of the SV-40 virus in human bone cancers and in a lethal form of lung cancer called mesothelioma. He found SV-40 in 33% of the osteosarcoma bone cancers studied, in 40% of other bone cancers, and in 60% of the mesotheliomas lung cancers.
- Researchers from the Institute of Histology and General Embryology of the University of Ferrara, lead by Dr. Fernanda Martini, discovered SV-40’s presence in a variety other tumors. They found the rhesus monkey virus in 83% of choriod plexus papillomas, in 73% of ependymomas, in 47% of astrocytomas, in 50% of glioblastomas, and in 14% of meningiomas.
- Even more shocking, SV-40 has appeared in 61% of all new cancer patients — patients even too young to have received the contaminated vaccine being administered forty years ago!
- Instead of getting the “dead” virus in an injection, the Federal vaccination policy was changed mandating that children should be given the new live “oral polio vaccine” (OPV). This decision was based upon the belief that the OPV recipient would “shed” the virus through body contact with other non-vaccinated children and adults, thereby spreading the “live” virus throughout the population. The SV-40 virus that contaminated the oral polio vaccine quickly spread from child to child and from child to adult, crossing state lines and national boundaries. By 1960, when the virus was first detected, it was already too late to prevent its dissemination throughout the population. The FDA quietly and gradually instituted a program to eliminate rhesus monkeys, which harbor the SV-40, and replace them with African Green monkeys that are free of the virus.
A number of public statements have been made by the National Cancer Institute, attempting to put their spin on these disturbing revelations. In a statement published in the January (1999) New England Journal of Medicine, the institute states that there is no evidence of an increase in humans of the types of cancers found in laboratory animals that have been injected with SV-40. But other researchers remind us that SV-40 has already been found in a wide variety of other tumors. It has been shown that individuals who received the tainted oral vaccine demonstrate a higher occurrence of these cancers.
Not surprisingly, the US government and its agencies are reluctant to pursue this matter. In fact, requests to the National Institute for Health for grants to study the SIV and simian cytomegalovirus (SCMV) were recently denied. Microbiologist Howard Urnovitz, Ph.D., may have an explanation as he stated in the Boston Globe: “that almost 100 million Americans were exposed (to SV-40) through a government sponsored program, but for over 30 years, there has been virtually no government effort to see if anyone’s been harmed by the exposure.” He added, “The government will not fund science that makes it look culpable.”
Philip Wiley sought at least $13.3 million in compensatory damages from six tobacco companies and two industry groups for the 1991 death of his wife. A jury in Muncie, Indiana agreed there is no proven connection between second hand smoke and cancer and said cigarettes were not a defective product that their makers were not negligent and the tobacco industry was not liable in the cancer death of a nonsmoking nurse exposed to secondhand smoke at a veteran’s hospital. Industry attorneys pointed out that Mrs. Wiley’s cancer may have had other causes and could have started in her pancreas, then spread to her lung.
Smoking May Actually Be Healthy For You
Smoking may actually help reduce the risk of breast cancer in some women, according to a study, published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The study found that smoking reduces by 50 percent the risk of developing breast cancer in women who have a rare genetic mutation that can lead to the disease.
Studies have shown evidence of an inverse relationship between smoking and the risk of contracting Alzheimer’s disease or Parkinson’s disease. In fact, most studies show that the more one smokes, the lower the risk level.
Scientists reported at the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting that they’re encouraged they can design medications to capitalize on the benefits of nicotine without cardiovascular and other side effects. Apparently, they found that Nicotine-like compounds can improve memory and might one day be used in pills to treat disorders like Alzheimer’s disease. [CBS Market watch, Nov 8, 1998]
What Is the Leading Cause of Death in America?
Is cigarette smoking the single most preventable cause of premature death in the United States?
- The CDC estimates 434,000 smoking related deaths per year in the U.S.
- The number of babies that die from abortion in the United States is 1.2 million a year.
A definitive review and close reading of medical peer-review journals, and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good. The number of people having in-hospital, adverse drug reactions (ADR) to prescribed medicine is 2.2 million. Dr. Richard Besser, of the CDC, in 1995, said the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections was 20 million. Dr. Besser, in 2003, now refers to tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics.
The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million. The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million. The total number of iatrogenic deaths is 783,936. It is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. The 2001 heart disease annual death rate is 699,697; the annual cancer death rate, 553,251. [Death by Medicine]
Quitting Can be Dangerous
According to three medical doctors writing in the journal Medical Hypotheses, giving up smoking can kill you. The doctors were “struck by the more than casual relationship between the appearance of lung cancer and an abrupt and recent cessation of the smoking.” In 182 of the 312 cases they treated, habitual smokers of at least a pack a day for at least a quarter-century developed lung cancer shortly after they gave up smoking.
In a rush to cover their tracks and bad statistics, anti-smoking advocates are quickly revising their numbers to be more in line with their political ambitions. In the 1960’s epidemiologists estimated that smoking killed one fourth of all regular smokers. That estimate was later raised to one third. More recently they suggest that both estimates are too low. According to scientist Richard Peto, lifelong cigarette use, particularly if begun before age 20, kills at least half of all smokers.
Americans are not experiencing the “epidemic of tobacco related disease and death” the anti-smokers claim. If that were true, why would annual death rates decrease in the U.S. as cigarette sales rates increase?
Census Death by Death Sales per
Year Population All Cause Rate% Billion

1910 91,972,260 1,351,992 1.47 8.6

1990 248,709,900 2,162,000 0.87 525.0
Smokers represented nearly 50% of the adult male/female population for several decades in the United States according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Smoking among adults decreased dramatically from 42% in 1965 to 26% in 1994. During this period, smoking among the adult male population declined from 52% to 28%; adult female smoking declined from 34% to 23%. In 1994, 48 million adults 18 years of age and older (25.3 million men, 22.7 million women) were current smokers in the United States.
If nearly 50% of the population smoked, you would expect at least nearly 50% of the people who die would be smokers, if smoke has nothing to do with dying. It stands to reason we should start suspecting that smoke kills smokers only when over 50% of those who die in a given year are smokers. By their own statistics, only about 20% of the deaths are smokers.
At the end of World War II, about 90 per cent of the adult male population of Britain smoked. If lung cancer takes about 20-25 years to show, as some claim, then by 1965, or 1970 at the latest, we would have seen an epidemic of truly catastrophic proportions. One in every eleven British men would have been dying of lung cancer. This simply did not happen.
There hardly appears to be the profound danger anti-smoking advocates would have us believe. As a matter of fact, it would appear you have a greater chance of dying if you’re a non-smoker!
In another look at the numbers, 38% of the people who smoke live beyond 80 years old, 50% live beyond 75 and 85% live beyond 65. This compares to 43% of non-smokers living beyond 80 years old, 50% of non-smokers live beyond 75, and 85% of non-smokers live beyond 65. The government and anti-smoking lobby can’t explain this disparity, so they lie.
Fewer Cigarettes Equals MORE Cancer?
U.S. historical statistics show that, in the period 1973-1994, annual per capita consumption of cigarettes FELL from 4,148 to 2,493. But in the same period, the incidence of lung and bronchial cancer ROSE from 42.5 to 57.1 cases per 100,000 population. How can this be if the propaganda of the Anti-Tobacco Pharmaceutical Cartel is correct?
The deluge of anti-smoking hysteria is actually a very recent thing. And it’s quite sudden too. Look at a film from only 10 or 15 years ago and you’ll see everyone smoking away merrily and without a worry. They’re smoking in the elevator, in the office and, of course, in every decent bar!
How can it be that we’ve been so suddenly immersed in this tidal wave of warnings and fear and – let’s be clear – propaganda? Doesn’t it seem a bit too orchestrated?
A Dog’s Purpose? (from a 6-year-old).
May 10, 2021
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn’t do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.
As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.
The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker ‘s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.
The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.
Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ”I know why.”
Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I’d never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.
He said,”People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life — like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?” The Six-year-old continued, ”Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.”
Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Never pretend to be something you’re not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.
ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY!
Exercise in our Fast Paced Lives
March 21, 2021
As soon as we hear or read the word exercise, the first thing that comes to our mind is crunches, weight lifting, push-ups, pull-ups and other such workouts that make us drip. But, this not what exercise is all about. Such workout or weight training does help us in building our physique, but not everyone has enough time or mental strength to persevere for weight training, especially in this fast paced life.
Working out in a gym helps you to reduce the stress hormones and stiffen your muscles to look good and improve your sex appeal. However, in this fast paced life most of us are not able to find enough time to fit gym in our busy schedules. An early morning walk in the park followed by light stretching or a sweltering jog is the need of the hour for all such individuals. This will help you cope up with stressful situations in life and look at the world with a new perspective. Physical well being is the first step to happiness and our complete well being.
Exercise is defined as any activity that is responsible for the well being of our body, mind or soul. Exercise could be anything from a walk in the park to a whole-hearted laugh, as they relieve us of the stresses accumulated in our mind and body.
Physical exercise plays a vital role in our well being, however that is not enough, for most of the exercises are meant for strengthening our muscles and physical well being, but what about our mind and soul? Yoga is a form of exercise that results in the well being of our mind and soul along with the physical well being.
Yoga can be performed by individuals of all age groups and can even heal most of our ailments which is not possible with any other form of exercise. It improves the flexibility of our muscles, relieves stress and takes us closer to our inner self or conscience. It makes our spirit pure and genteel. Yoga involves various deep breathing techniques, light physical exercises and meditation. It is an ancient Indian technique that was mostly adopted by ascetics or yogis which made them live longer and healthier lives. People have realised the importance of yoga lately and groups from all over the world are involved in its promotion.
For the individuals who can never find time to exercise, yoga is the way to go. It is performed for 15-30 minutes daily with not even a single drop of sweat and will leave you feeling fresh and healthy unlike weight training exercises that leave you feeling drenched and tired. Even the aged can easily perform yoga and will benefit a lot from it. Although, it involves professional training for at least a month to be able to perform it on your own in the appropriate manner.
Another form of exercise is ‘laughter’. More and more people are accepting this fact and are opting to laugh instead of dripping at a gym. “Laughter is the best medicine”, is a doctor’s favourite quote, but hardly any follow. Laughing hard can have the same effects as that of jogging and other stretching exercises. A laugh reduces the stress level instantaneously, though it’s not easy for each of us to develop the habit of laughing when we are stressed, but it can be adapted with perseverance and would definitely prove to be helpful.
It a nutshell, exercise is a must for every individual and must not be limited to its physical form, but extended to its mental and spiritual forms as well.
Long Term Wigs-Weaves Sewn-Glued Maintenance Points: Most Important; TIME
Editorial: Waiting Room USA SR. Editor
February 26, 2021
Why Women And Girls Should Think Twice About Keeping Substitute Hair Attached To Their Scalp For Extended Period Time, And The Needs For Mobil Hair Salon’s Serving Black & Brown Under Privilege Communities.
Unknown to many, wearing wigs has been a part of the world’s different cultures since time immemorial. In ancient Egypt, both males and females wore wigs made either from human hair, sheep’s wool or vegetable fibers, depending upon their social status. There were a number of benefits for Egyptians from shaving their heads. First it was more comfortable in the hot Egyptian climate not to have hair. Secondly, a bald head helped avoid the danger of an infestation of lice, which was a problem at that time.
However, it appears that Egyptians preferred having “hair” which resulted in the creation of wigs that gave the appearance of hair. The new wigs also protected the Egyptians’ bald heads from the brutal sun. Wigs became part of daily wear for the Egyptian people indicating a person’s status as well as their role in a society or politics. Woman’s wigs were adorned with braids and gold, hair-rings and ivory ornaments making them more stylish than men’s wigs.
Ultimately, the more elaborate and involved the wig was, the higher the social rank. One of the earliest documented users of wigs was the Egyptians. Since ancient Egypt is so hot and humid, most people, especially their royalty, shaved their heads and donned massive wigs to keep their shiny heads cool. These Egyptian headdresses and wigs are now iconic and representative of the rich culture of Southern Ethiopia and Northern ancient Egypt.
Egyptians were not the only people sporting wigs, but we can also look to the Roman empire and other ancient cultures like the Phoenicians of ancient Greece, the Assyrians of the Mesopotamian, and even ancient Jews of Israel have wigs engrained into their heritage. Wearing a wig could represent your status in high society or show how much power and influence one has over the others. The term “crowning glory” was coined by these ancient people who looked to wigs as part of their daily lives.
Today, in modern times, people wear wigs to look beautiful, boost their self-esteem, and even go as far as signifying their new persona’s. Today’s famous wig wearers include Cher, Lady Gaga, The Kardashians, as well as many male actors in Hollywood, etc.
Of course, seeing these celebrities wearing beautiful hair wigs and extensions have inspires many ordinary people who also have the desire to have the same kind of beautiful hair but without the finances to maintain the upkeep that leads to keeping their wigs on for far too long, longer than what is recommended leading various health issues.
Hollywood has many ladies feeling the need to look like celebrities when even the celebrities themselves don’t look like their dolled-up selves all the time, as to why you see many wearing shorter hair daily which was easier to up keep. Keep in mind wigs and extensions should be use the same as caps and hats, changing them to keep new persona, the same thought should be used when wearing wigs and extensions, the pandemic for women of color took away that options (lack of funds).
Wearing wigs and getting weaves isn’t cheap by any means. So before you go and empty your pockets on a new weave or hair extension, here are some side effects to wearing a wig every day or wearing it for far longer than the recommended 12 hour period every. The epidemic economic impact force many women to use a variety of methods to extend the time frame for keeping wigs and hair extensions attached to their scalp.
Recently in the news; the story where a young lady use Gorilla glue spray to hold her hair in place and ended up having to have a Plastic Surgeon to removed the glue to save her hair follicles, all because she did not have the funds to purchase another wig after being laid off due to the pandemic restrictions, which effected young women of color, especially African American, who are struggling to maintain the look that makes them happy and helps with their self-esteem with limited funds.
Another True story 12/30/2020; a young female sports fitness athlete that require her a professional attractive appearance, and restrictions on gyms severely limited her income for over a year, even though she wanted too remove as her wig weave started shedding badly. With no funds to buy a replacement are set up and a stylist to have it removed she did what she had too. Most African American especially women during the pandemic very little money was available to her for anything except food and lodging.
With her health declining due to issues with keeping the weave in, she sought the help of a friend to try and remove it on her own, where she ran into serious problems as the wig was attached using two methods, sewing and weave glue to keep it in place. After removing the wig, she found that she had to overcome other challenges; the new hair growth had become tightly matted (dreads) around the sewn and glued parts, and because it had not been shampooed are condition smiler to steel wool.
It was her hope that she could salvage the new length of her hair and start out fresh with a new natural look; sadly that did not occur. Over the next 3 days struggling with the aftermath of removing the wig she ask a neighbor to assist/ help her try and untangle the damaged hair using concentrated conditioners the neighbor finally suggested a beautician. The matted hair had to be cut out, which affected her emotionally, something she still has issues with.
We decided to release this article to shed light on a major problem that the epidemic restrictions that has not been given any attention. Hair Salons and Beauty Shops, had to close leaving 90% of their regular customers with little are no options for the regular maintenance of their; which adversely affected those in minority community more than any other community.
There seems to be a new movement growing n the USA; people, especially in big cities, are downsizing and starting to live in very small apartments and houses. Primarily, it is an economical decision because rent rates tend to be very high in large cities such as New York, Boston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles and smaller dwellings look like a good option for budget-conscious renters. Moreover, it seems to work the best for single people who spend most of their time at work and socialize outside. Many of the buildings with micro-apartments offer communal amenities such as gyms, media rooms, and outside recreational areas which provide the tenants with an opportunity to meet their neighbors and socialize.
Is it a movement which will catch up? Worldwide, people live in places which are much smaller than what an average American is used to, especially in such countries as Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, India, Japan, and China. But, the question stands whether the American public ready for such a downsizing? As such, there were many reports which claim that living in small quarters might lead to depression, substance abuse, and domestic abuse; moreover, children who grow up in smaller places might develop learning disabilities. According to Susan Saegert, a director of Housing Environments Research Group, children who live in small apartments “can end up becoming withdrawn and have trouble studying and concentrating.” However, such claims need to be studied more because the experience proves them otherwise. After all, school children of Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and other countries routinely outperform their American counterparts in all the school tests; and the lack of space does not seem to adversely affect them.
Moreover, life in smaller places can also mean being more environmentally friendly because one simply spends less energy and leaves smaller carbon print when living in a micro-apartment. If the culture of competing with Joneses was considered outdated, many of Americans might have well agreed to live smaller because it would save them money and effort. – Becky Kospanova
The advent of New Year stirs the desire to improve their lives for many people. As such, many imagine themselves thinner, healthier, and generally happier than they were in a previous year. Psychologists agree that it is productive to set goals: attainable, self-improving, and realistic. After all, it is in a human nature to want to improve things and what is the better time than the start of a New Year? However, when did the tradition to set New Year resolutions start? And, more interestingly, what are the most popular goals people generally set for themselves?
The tradition of making New Year resolutions traces centuries back. Historical research shows that ancient Babylonians, Romans, and Greeks made New Year resolutions to help the poor, pay their debts, and be better citizens. The goals of modern people seem to be more egocentric. Generally, people resolve to do the following:
1. Improve themselves physically (lose extra weight, eat more healthily, start going to the gym, abstain from alcohol and cigarettes, etc.)
2. Improve themselves mentally (think positive things, be nicer to immediate family, laugh more, enjoy life and surrounding beauty to a full extent).
3. Improve finances and career (pay the debts, apply for a dream job, perform better at a current job, obtain the long-sought promotion, or establish own business).
4. Get better education (develop a new hobby, learn a foreign language, start reading more, get a college degree, take some classes at a local college).
5. Volunteer (donate their time and effort to a worthwhile cause, help those in need, and get involved into community).
6. Improve themselves socially (meet new people, make a new friend, become active socially, travel).
7. Improve themselves spiritually (attend church more often, pray more, reflect on life).
Interestingly, recent research shows that in previous decades people were more concerned with doing good deeds for others, but nowadays people are more self-involved and mostly concentrate on themselves. Even then, most people fail to follow on their New Year resolutions; according to a study conducted by Richard Wiseman from the University of Bristol, as many as eighty-eight percent of people do not fulfill their resolutions, although initially fifty-two percent of people have absolute confidence in their eventual success.
However, there are ways to achieve success with New Year resolutions. For example, it helps to set them in steps—instead of generally resolving to lose extra weight; it is more productive to say “no” to a pound or two per week. More importantly, it is always easier to do things for others; it fulfills your sense of civic duty, it makes you feel better, and it makes a world a better place. Why not make this year a year to help others?

The Struggles & Happiness Of A Mail Order Wife
by Sirron Kyles And Irish Andrade
Part 1- The Struggles (Rough childhood)
My name is Peony Chen. I turned 21 years old four months ago, and today, I am meeting the man I am marrying. His name is Christian Wells. He is an educated middle-aged man from Scotland. He says he is 41, but the photo he sent the agency didn’t look like it. He has blonde hair and blue eyes. It’s every Asian woman’s dream to find such a man. Our circumstances might have been not so ideal, but we have been talking for a year through emails, phone calls, and on Whatsapp, so I am more comfortable now than when it first started.
Growing up, getting even the basics has always been a struggle, but both my mother and father managed to make ends meet. You see, our family of four live in a 300 square feet public rental housing flats in Kowloon Bay. The rent is Two Thousand Hong Kong Dollars a month. It’s almost impossible to find housing this cheap, so we are lucky. My parents met when my father was on a business trip to mainland China in 1992. He was a construction worker in a small-time company, and my mother was selling cooked food for takeaways in a small canteen for employees. My father ended up staying in China for a long time, and after saving up some money, they moved to Hong Kong in 1999 and got married. I was born in the same year. I was their beautiful pride and joy. My father named me Peony after the lovely flowers he took care of when he worked as a gardener for a big financial firm in Hong Kong. While they reveled in their joy on the birth of their daughter, the money that they saved for their big move didn’t last. My mother went back to work a few months after my birth.
