2. A Really Good Start: Pre-Pregnancy, Prenatal, and Postpartum Nutrition and Fitness

Slice ePub January 09, 2014

Congratulations! You’re pregnant. It’s time to put up your feet, eat anything you crave in any quantity you want, and chill for the next nine and a half months … right?

I don’t think so!

Throughout human history, women have been active all through their pregnancies. We may no longer have to work as hard physically in our everyday lives, but our bodies are still wired to be active—pregnant or not.

You are what you eat, and your baby is what you eat, too. Caving in to every craving for sweets and junk food during pregnancy will, at the very least, probably bring about more weight gain than is ideally healthy and make that hill of losing the baby weight more difficult to climb later on. I’m not trying to stand between you and the occasional Ben & Jerry’s celebration or other small indulgences, but overall, your diet during pregnancy—even pre-conception, when you are preparing for pregnancy— should be nutrient dense (more on this later) and follow sensible guidelines, which I’ll lay out in this chapter.

Prayer in Honor of Saint Gabriel

Source: Angels
Slice ePub May 27, 2014

Devotions and Prayers

And the smoke of the incense,

with the prayers of the saints,

rose before God from the hand of the angel.

— Revelation 8:4

The Angelus

The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.

And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you,

blessed are you among women,

and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,

now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Behold the handmaid of the Lord,

be it done unto me according to your word.

Hail Mary…

And the Word was made flesh.

And dwelt among us.

Hail Mary…

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:

Pour forth, we beseech you, O Lord, your grace into our hearts, that we, to whom the Incarnation of Christ, your Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by his passion and cross be brought to the glory of his resurrection, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Guardian Angel Prayer

Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God’s love entrusts me here, ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.

7. Conversation, language, and the written word

Slice ePub May 23, 2014

Judit Wagner

An abundance of thoughts can be conceived when we dare to be present, listen, and even step into these thoughts, as I aim to show in this chapter. I also show how individuals within the organization think, and how they are affected through an ongoing conversation. Some language expressions and how they influence our thinking are described, and I have chosen texts representing language expressions. I also describe how a written text can be used in different ways: as a way of beginning to talk or to tell a story, as one way to describe the other.

A place for conversation is created

I work in a prison in Kalmar, a city in the southeast of Sweden. The prison has a high security rating and houses sixty inmates who are serving long (twelve-year) or life sentences. Nowadays Kalmar is a drug-free institution, meaning that those placed there are not substance abusers. The prison has a school and a work- shop, where the inmates study or work. There is now an apartment within the facility grounds where the inmates can receive visits from their families and spend a few days together with them. A placement in Kalmar is centrally controlled by KVS (The Board of National Prison and Probation Administration), the highest deciding body for correctional facilities in Sweden. Most of the inmates have gone through a risk-assessment at Kumla Prison, a big institution serving the whole country, prior to their transfer to Kalmar. The assessment yields a psychological classification and diagnosis of the inmates’ capabilities, or, rather, their lack of capabilities. KVS also make reassessments of the inmates regarding decisions about when parole and relocation to lower-security facilities can take place.

2:19 to Whitstable

2:19 to Whitstable

I’m leaving once I’ve pick-axed this widowed moss.

I’m leaving once I’ve asphyxiated these doves.

I’m leaving once I’ve shaved my legs to smithereens.

I’m leaving once I’ve tidied this cupboard.

I’m leaving once I’ve practised my aloof walk.

I’m leaving once the Anti-Christ has finished his tea.

I’m leaving once I’m satisfied your sister’s okay.

I’m leaving once the spare-ribs have digested.

I’m leaving once wallpaper comes in the shade of morose.

I’m leaving once my dignity has truly gone and not just nipped out for crisps.

I’m leaving once they’ve brought back hanging.

I’m leaving once the Palestinian thing is cool.

I’m leaving once inanimate objects get the vote.

I’m leaving once Norwegians achieve equal daylight.

I’m leaving once my grandma attends gay pride.

I’m leaving once there’s no more creaking doors.

I’m leaving once your ex-lovers all die.

I’m leaving once the car is fully submerged.

I’m leaving once I’ve flirted with crack cocaine.

I’m leaving once it’s never been this good before.

Combining HTML and CFML Form Controls

Slice PDF May 27, 2014

cfslider

Java applet-based slider control for selecting a value from a range of numeric values. cfgrid

Java applet-based grid control for displaying, entering, and editing tabular data. cftree

Java applet-based tree control for displaying and selecting hierarchical data. cfapplet

Allows you to use custom Java controls as if they were native ColdFusion tags.

Version 5.0 of ColdFusion introduced a number of significant architectural, behavioral, functional, and cosmetic changes to the various cfform controls. The most significant change had to do with the architecture of the controls themselves. Different versions of different web browsers each have a different Java Runtime Environment

(JRE), making it impossible to guarantee that the pre–ColdFusion 5.0 applets will run as intended on all browser version/JRE combinations. Because of this, all the

Java applet-based cfform controls (cftextinput, cfgrid, cfslider, and cftree) were rewritten for ColdFusion 5.0 and further enhanced in ColdFusion MX. The new versions of the controls require the Sun Java web browser plugin, which allows the applets to function across the widest possible spectrum of browsers. When a user requests a page containing any of the new applet controls, ColdFusion automatically attempts to send and install the Java plugin if it isn’t already present on the user’s system. Depending on what browser the user has and the version they are running, installation can be completely seamless, or it can require a few additional steps on the part of the user.
