Thanks Meredith!

Thanks for doing this wiki Meredith! (and for your diligent efforts to block spammers...)

Thanks for the wiki! I was wondering... why would you want to "distance learners"? Wouldn't it be wiser to keep them close by? ;) Also, the link to your library doesn't work. --Jimmy

Hey Meredith. How are you? Thanks for answering my question. I made a lot of changes early today (June 12th).. including adding a new page and did some shuffling around of stuff... But now it seems to all be gone. I'm not sure what happened. Is this a glitch? It doesn't seem like anybody deleted it either (I looked in the history).. Just looks like it never happened. Weird. Thanks! --Jimmy

Stopping spam

Spammers are a pain, and drain some of the energy that could be used to create/edit pages. At this was becoming a real and daily nuisance, but it has stopped after I installed the SpamBlacklist extension about a week ago. Highly recommended! --MagnusEnger 05:07, 6 January 2006 (EST)

Course requirement

As per my course requirement, we have to create a "wiki" as a part of our class in MLIS. I will delete the contents as soon I save the screen shot. Thanks,Tamil Librarian

Glen Bernard Summer Camp

Glen Bernard Camp provides a caring experience in which campers and staff develop self-confidence. The environment fosters both independence and group belonging. Fun is fundamental to the success of GBC. Mission StatementCamp is a unique environment. It is a community of people living closely together, learning by example and depending for success on the presence of excellent role models. Camp staff must demonstrate positive values and make healthy choices. At camp, we learn how and when to lead and how and when to follow; how to look for risks, keep ourselves safe and challenge our comfort zones. We learn how to be positive role models. This is why we need camp more than ever and forever.

Give an opening to a camper of any age and instantly you get a camp story. Remember the camper who said, " I love it here at camp!" When asked why, she said: "At home I don't have a lot of friends and I don't do much, but at camp it's different. At camp, I think I might be cool." Most of these stories are recalled because camp is about experiences with other people — how you figure out who you are and what you want to become.

Any camper can tell tales of a staff member she/he looked up to and remembers that person long after camp days are over. The memory is usually of the positive influence the counsellor instilled on our future. For example: the counsellor who took you kayaking every day because you just couldn't perform an Eskimo roll, though you desperately wanted to master the skill.

My camp director often said, "We become like the things we admire", a guideline that I have never forgotten. We use it with camp staff every year.

Our approach since 1922 at Glen Bernard is to give campers opportunities to build self-confidence and develop successful interdependence in a safe, fun and nurturing environment. camp is a great experience for young people and an investment parents never regret. Today's campers are tomorrow's role models.

Natural Weight Loss

The “Quick Weight Loss Diet” Trend Disadvantage

If you wear a size 14 and you blow a bundle on designer size 8 dresses as motivation, you will probably end up feeling guilty, frustrated, and angry if you are not slinking around in it a month later.

In reality, you will do much better setting smaller, achievable targets for yourself. If you must try the new-clothes strategy, go down a size at a time, and do not buy anything you have to take out a second mortgage to pay for.

Because, if you continue to remorse on losing weight fast, you will end up incorporating fad diets or those that offer quick weight loss.

For most people who are not aware of this fact, there are no such things as quick weight loss diets and there is no nippy weight loss for people who want to be slimmer than what their body can provide.

The problem with most people is that they tend to opt for nippy fixes wherein fact these things are not effective at all.

What Does Not Work

Today, there are plenty of weight-loss strategies that are guaranteed to backfire. This is because these nippy fixes instilled on certain diet plans are, in reality, not efficient because it does not employ the right principle and the right attitude in losing weight.

These quick weight loss diet plans are known as fad diets because that is exactly what they are, just a fad. In time, when fashion is over and popularity wanes down, people will realize that the diet they have depended on is not reliable at all.

To know more about these fad diets that are selling like hotcakes in the market today, here is a list of some telltale signs that would tell you not to try it even once.

Here they are:

1. Skipping meals

Does your diet plan require you to skip meals? If it does, then, it is a fad diet.

Abstain from food completely is not a healthy habit. It may even cause some serious complications or problems especially for people who are sick with diabetes.

Skipping meals will only cause a hypoglycemia, or the condition wherein your blood sugar is really low, and will probably only be effective in making you eat twice as much at the next meal.

2. Dieting without exercise, or vice versa

Exercise is crucial to the human body. It is important in the proper blood circulation and other activities of the human body system.

Therefore, diet plans that do not require you to exercise are nuisances. People are born to move.

But then again, exercise alone is not sufficient. Hence, it would be better if diet and exercise will go hand-in-hand.

3. Continuous dawdling

There is no better time to start losing weight. If you want to really lose those excess fats, you have to lose weight now.

Delaying tactics will not get you anywhere and will only make the problem worse. So, if your diet plan suggests a certain timeframe for you start losing weight, chances are, you are following the trend of fad diets.

Boiled down, it is best to rely more on the way you feel than the tale of the tape. This means that if the weighing scale tells you that you are losing weight even if it is slower than you would like, but you are feeling energetic and positive about your weight-loss efforts, then, you are just doing fine.

As mentioned and is worth mentioning all over again, weight loss is not a quick process.
