Why Susan McGalla Says Being A Woman Isn’t What Matters

Susan McGalla loves her work in marketing and branding strategies and she’s become one of the top female executives in the Pittsburgh area. While local and even national news outlets have made her accomplishments as a woman feature stories, McGalla really doesn’t care about that. The reason is because she has adhered to the principles she learned from her family about how people in the workplace should be viewed as people alone and not looked at through the lens of a gender-specific accomplishment. McGalla has reinforced this saying at conferences she’s spoken at addressing young women in business.

Susan McGalla is originally from East Liverpool, Ohio and grew up as a football enthusiast, a reason that may have shaped her later decision to join the Pittsburgh Steelers’ marketing department. She attended college at Mt Union and completed a bachelor’s degree in business and marketing. She joined the Joseph Horne Company, a now-defunct company based in Pittsburgh and started heading the store’s merchandising operations. From there she joined American Eagle Outfitters, the company that she was with the longest and it was there that she became the company’s first female executive. She held the position as both chief merchandising officer and president, and during her time there the company rolled out several new apparel lines that were inclusive of female customers.

McGalla loved her time at American Eagle, but she decided to take her executive experience up another level. She joined the board of directors at HFF, a Pittsburgh real estate investment company and also joined the research foundation of the Magee Women’s Hospital. She decided to start her own branding consulting company known as P3 Executive Consulting which connects with various clients looking for marketing and merchandising ideas. McGalla guides the merchandising developers of the Pittsburgh Steelers in jersey and memorabilia creation to appeal to a diverse fan group. McGalla is also a mother who has had to balance out her career with attending to the needs of her child, and she has spoken to various married and single women about how forming a routine of both working out and rest can balance out their lives.

How To Stay Health While Being A Pregnant Vegetarian

Readers of the New York Times asked a question about being pregnant and a vegetarian in the ask well section of the newspaper. Their question was is it possible to remain completely healthy and have a healthy baby while being on a vegetarian diet or the more extreme vegan diet. A New York Times reporter did some research on the subject and asked some experts. Here is what she found.

All of the studies done on vegetarian mothers who were pregnant showed no increase in birth defects or health problems. This data comes from 22 studies that tracked vegetarian mothers. The observational studies only included healthy vegetarian mothers, so the researchers in the study said that more research is needed to in fact say conclusively whether vegetarian mothers have no increased risks of birth defects or health issues.

Doctors say that being on a plant based diet is acceptable for pregnant women if they take some precautions. When a woman is pregnant her need for the mineral, iron doubles. Iron is found in animals foods such as red meat and some fish. There are plant foods that are rich in iron, but they are not as readily absorbed. Doctors thus advise pregnant women to eat plenty of iron rich plant foods such as beans, peas and lentils as well as greens like spinach and collard greens. Taking a supplement is also a good idea.

Another vitamin that pregnant women may be lacking who are vegetarians is vitamin B 12. This nutrient is not contained in plant foods. There are some vegan foods that contain this vitamin such as soy products like tofu or fortified cereals. If you can’t stomach soy or fortified foods, then just take a supplement which includes B-vitamins and iron. There are special supplements designed for pregnant women and vegetarians that have the vitamins that vegans and pregnant women especially need. If vegetarian mothers ensure they get enough B-vitamins and iron than there should be no problems with staying healthy and having a healthy baby.

U.S. Money Reserve mints Pearl Harbor Silver Coins to honor veterans

 

7th of December last year marked the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Also known as the battle for Pearl Harbor, the attack was planned and executed by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service as a preventative measure to keep the U.S. Pacific Fleet from interfering with the Japanese military attacks in Southeast Asia. The attack, however, had the opposite effect and resulted in the United States joining the World War II.

 

By far the worst of the attacks was experienced by the crewmembers of USS Arizona. The ship was bombed and later exploded, taking the lives of 1.117 crew members. Three of the only five remaining survivors from USS Arizona were honor during their visit to Washington D.C this July.

 

In collaboration with U.S. Navy Memorial Foundation, U.S. Money Reserve held a ceremony where each veteran was awarded a commemorative 5 oz. Pearl Harbor Silver Coin. This government-issued silver coin was minted in limited quantities in order to remember and honor the 75th anniversary on the attack on Pearl Harbor. Donald Stratton and Lauren Bruner were the only two USS Arizona survivors who attended the ceremony. Ken Potts, also a former crewmember of USS Arizona, could not attend and was awarded the Pearl Harbor Silver Coin at a later occasion.

 

Together with these three veterans the ceremony also honored Joe George, a boatswain’s mate second class serving on USS Vestal. George’s actions on the day of the attack saved the lives of Stratton, Bruner and four other people. George disobeyed direct order about cutting the rope connecting USS Arizona and USS Vestal, and threw a weighted heaving line instead. Unidentified by his heroic decision, George passed away in 1996 without getting proper recognition.

 

George’s daughter, Joe Ann Taylor, received the Pearl Harbor Silver Coin on behalf of her father and expressed how much it means to her to get a token of her father’s heroic past. Thankful to George for saving their lives that day, Stratton and Bruner have been pushing for a posthumous award for George to recognize his courageous act.

 

 

The president of U.S. Money Reserve, Philip N. Diehl, expressed the support U.S. Money Reserve has for the men and women that serve their country. Angela Koch, the CEO of the U.S. Money Reserve, further stated that they were honored to meet the survivors of USS Arizona and provide them with a token of remembrance for their bravery. U.S. Money Reserve also wished to be a part of the commemoration of those who bravely lost their lives fighting in Pearl Harbor. They partnered with U.S. Navy Memorial Foundation to help fund a Lone Sailor Statue at Pearl Harbor. It is proposed that the statute should be constructed with metal from the USS Arizona. The plan is to raise the statue on October 13, 2017, the U.S. Navy’s official birthday.

Healthy Snacks for Kids

There are many tasty, healthy snacks that you can make for kids. These healthy snack options include vegetables, various plant-based butters and fats, dairy and whole grains. However, one must keep in mind that too much of anything is bad. A hummus dip, for example, can be healthy, though if you eat a lot you may be consuming too much sodium. Dairy products are healthy, but you really have to keep a close eye on what types of dairy products you consume and how often you consume them. For example, cheese is a very nutritious dairy product, though small amounts of cheese tend to have noticeably high amounts of fat and cholesterol. A healthy dip has its place in a healthy snack, though there may be a lot of sodium in a small amount of dip.

Popcorn is a great snack because for every three cups of popcorn, there are 4 grams of fiber. Popcorn is a very versatile food product that you can put any toppings on. The best kind of popcorn is plain popcorn, because there is generally nothing added to it, and it can act as a blank canvas for what you want to add.

Cookies can be a surprisingly healthy snack for kids. If you make cookies with oatmeal and whole wheat flour, suddenly you will have cookies jam-packed with fiber. You can add applesauce to cut down on butter. You could even try to use other types of butters and oils.

Peanut butter is a great snack option because it provides beneficial fats and proteins. It goes great with vegetables and on sandwiches, giving them heartier consistencies.

Cheese is tasty and full of calcium and protein. This is a very nutritious snack if it is eaten in moderation—not snacked on compulsively and not eaten everyday.

Bob Reina: He Is A Real Man

In today’s world, there is one thing that is lacking and that is real men. It is also lacking real people. Real people are the type of people that are going to go to bat for others when they need help. They are not just going to sit on the sidelines and not do anything about it. That is not in their nature and that is not in their mental makeup. Bob Reina is a human being that people know is going to get the job done for them in whatever way they need when they are using Talk Fusion. It is that powerful and that is why Bob Reina stands behind it. This is not just because he is the CEO and the founder. He believes in what the product does, and he believes in the company one hundred and ten percent.

 

Talk Fusion and Bob Reina are a way of life for many people, and that is a good thing. It shows that people are demanding more out of life, and they should demand more out of life. They should not simply settle, relax, or take it easy. If there is something out there for them, they deserve it. They should not simply take a job because it pays them a certain amount of money. Money should not be the end-all be-all for people. Of course, they need to make money to live, and Talk Fusion helps with that thanks to video newsletters, video emails, video conferences, and video chats.

 

This is all designed to help someone build up their company and watch it soar wilder than they ever imagined. That is what Bob Reina wants for people, and he hopes that people want that for themselves. The world is full of choices and one of the smartest choices they can make is using a product that was founded by Reina.

 

He is well spoken, a former police officer, and a philanthropist, but more than that, he is as real as they make them in today’s world. He does not have a phony or fake bone in his body.

Whitney Wolfe’s Bumble BFF App Is Helping Women Find New Friends After Relocating

Women in big cities are buzzing about Bumble BFF. The new feature is an extension of the original Bumble app from Whitney Wolfe. Bumble made its own buzz because it was the first dating app that let only women make the first move. With the new BFF extension, women can find BFFs quickly by simply swiping left or right on a prospective friend’s profile. The app works the same as Bumble but with a different purpose.

Why Whitney Wolfe Made Bumble BFF

Whitney Wolfe created the original Bumble app to help empower women by putting decisions in their hands. The Bumble BFF extension also has the purpose of empowering women in other ways. A common trend among young women today is going away to college and then relocating to a bigger city for work. Many young ladies land in cities where they have no friends, relatives or support system. Women contacted Bumble and voiced their pains of relocating to a big city, getting sick and having nobody to check on them. Some women were afraid of losing their new jobs and being without a place to live far away from their families. However, most women simply found it hard to make friends in new places and wanted a quicker and easier way to connect. Not all women find compatible friends in workplaces, gyms or other social circles. With Bumble BFF, finding compatible friends has never been easier.

Many people had been using the Bumble app originally to find dates but kept using it to connect with new friends even after they were in relationships. Women would switch to the same-sex view and add a line on their profiles to indicate that they were open to finding platonic friends. However, it took a while to comb through profiles to find who was looking for friends and who was only interested in dating. With BFF mode, many of the limitations from the dating app are removed to make it easier to find friends and initiate contact.

Another reason why Bumble BFF was created was to give women a way to network. Since Bumble is a leading feminist dating app, it is no surprise that Whitney wanted to empower women through friendship and professional networks. Women can network with other professional women to form valuable connections that may help them promote or land better jobs. They can make social friends and become empowered by having a support system whether they need emotional support or just a good gal pal to chat with over coffee. Women who have friends and a support system tend to be happier in their personal lives and in their professional lives. Also, they tend to be more successful. As a young entrepreneur who has lived in six large cities before the age of 27, Whitney understands the pain of women who relocate and have little time to make friends.

How Bumble BFF Works

When Whitney Wolfe created Bumble, she used the same convenient swipe platform that she and her former fellow co-founders at Tinder used. Bumble BFF preserves that same handy design. Members sign up through Facebook after downloading the Bumble app and create a separate Bumble profile. Although separate profiles for regular Bumble and Bumble BFF are planned for the near future, members must use the same profile for both modes. After setting up a profile, members who want to use Bumble BFF simply click the settings button and select the BFF option. Switching back to regular mode is just as simple. While in BFF mode, users only see other profiles of women who are looking for friendship. The message inbox combines conversations from both app modes. However, they are coded in different colors to differentiate dating and friendly chats. Friendship conversations are green, and dating conversations are yellow.

When two users swipe to show their interest in the other’s profile, they have 24 hours to contact each other. Either party can make the initial contact. For women who are familiar with Bumble’s same-sex dating feature, the BFF contact method is similar. However, women who are interested in same-sex dating and friendship will still be able to distinguish their contacts based on the color codes in conversations. Even guys who use the app can find friends easier now with the BFF platform.

Basic Tips For Health & Wellness

Do not try to outright alter your diet. Switching your eating habits, should be gradual, and if it is done right, you will not notice it. Measuring intake in a low-calorie diet will remove the extra calories and help you get rid of extra weight. It is worth lending focus to how much variety is in your food list.

Have as much fresh fruits and vegetables as you can eat, whether you pay attention to the food color or not. This is so important, you should have many recipes to pick from for your vegetables and fruit meals. Incorporate them within your menu and then you will not feel as bored with your diet food, instead you will feel that it is healthier and tastier.

Pay attention to the quantity you drink and your fitness activity. Exercise, drink a substantial amount of liquids, as part of your new healthy life. Your Body requires clean water to replace sugary fruit juice, which is unlikely to be produced from fresh fruit,so stay away from soft drinks and coffee. For entire organs and bodily functions to work effectively, the digestive system needs plenty of water.

The body is made for motion, as most people lead a stationary lifestyle. Choose the exercises that best fit you, they should be part of the everyday regiment. Perform these exercises just at least three times a day. It has always been my rule to exercise at least as many times a day as I eat.

Converting your diet should not be a strain for the mental and physical aspects of yourself. It is not necessary to rid from your diet all that you love. The main purpose is to decrease the foreseeable chance of getting cancer, heart disease, diabetes, become more energetic and simultaneously feel good about yourself.

Teaching Kids Some Food Hacks Can Provide a Lifetime of Health

Most parents are well aware of how much their kids can eat. Providing food for one’s family is one of the most readily apparent signs of a good parent. However, it’s becoming more and more clear that it’s just as important to teach them what and how to eat. Thankfully there’s a few easy food hacks that can help kids appreciate even the healthiest foods.

The Food Network looked at some of the healthiest foods around and figured out some ways to entice kids to actually give them a try. And it turns out that sometimes kids actually had the right idea from the start.

Take popcorn as the perfect example. On the surface of things it might seem like junk food. But that’s more about what people put on popcorn than the food itself. Popcorn is actually a high fiber and low calorie grain which is a perfect snack food.

However, there are instances where one needs to be a bit tricky with healthy ingredients. Popsicles and cookies aren’t exactly health food when one simply buys them from the store. But most of what’s unhealthy about them is simply due to choices for ingredients. Ice pops don’t have to be little more than frozen sugar water. One can use healthy orange juice to create the perfect treat for a hot summer day. Or rolled oats can be used to fill up cookies and make them more healthy.

Even the ultimate unhealthy meal, pizza, isn’t inherently bad. As the Food Network points out, pizza is basically just a sandwich without the extra layer of bread on top. Going light on the cheese while concentrating on healthy toppings can make pizza that’s quite healthy.

All of the suggestions have one very important thing in common. And it’s what makes it a real food hack. They all use fun foods as a framing device to help train kids to enjoy healthy tastes. The tastes of an adult are formed by his or her childhood. When healthy items like broccoli or fruit are associated with happy memories than those eating habits will create the foundation for a healthy life.

Pros And Cons Of The Body’s Most Required Foods

Good fats and bad fats are part of complete diet, that is why they are both unwholesome and beneficial. Fats that are Good are necessary for the energy that is in charge of the heart, brain, skin, nails and hair. Omega 3 fats and Omega6 which is present in sardines, herring, mackerel and salmon are some of the good fats that are in your body. But the presence of saturated fats in excess is definitely something that you want to limit.

Proteins have the tendency to contain amino acids that your body needs to strengthen the respiratory system, heart, immune system and muscle tissue. Proteins are able to contribute to the components that are able to help the blood sugar level to stay normal. You can find proteins present especially inside of lean red meat. Some of the most well known sources of proteins are turkey, fresh fish and salmon.

Something that most people, especially those that are lactose intolerant, is that the body needs calcium and some of the main known sources of calcium are those that we considered to be dairy products. There are also more organic plant forms of getting calcium. The green vegetable are known to contain the most calcium, for example Calcium is found in legumes.

Sugar and salt are something that should be consumed in moderation. Although both Salt and sugar are necessary for survival, it is never necessary to consume either in excess. Salt and sugar are contained in many of the ready-made products that you already eat. Your consumption should be limited to such products that are excessively containing salt, such as ketchup, soy sauce, fast food, frozen dinners, soluble mashed potatoes, margarine, sauces for pasta, as well as various canned foods and bread. But everything that you decide to break away from should be done gradually.
