What is with the Stigma of being a Bigger Woman?

| News | No Comments

It can be really tough being a woman. Yes, that is a massive over-generalization, but at the same time it is what most of us feel when going through normal life. Everyone has a different size and shape and, whilst sometimes we can help what we weigh, other times there are a million other reasons why some of us may be bigger than others. However, what has not really been helping has been the massive stigma towards larger ladies. Not only is it detrimental to their self-esteem and body image, but it may lead to even more binge-eating and unhealthy habits. So, let’s jump into this rabbit hole and figure out why so many people hold such negative views about a woman’s body and weight.

The Fear is Real

According to the Daily Mail “no matter how much weight you’ve lost, your friends still think of you as fat.” One of the biggest threats to our nation nowadays is honestly obesity, especially when it is caused by over-eating and an unhealthy diet. However, even if you do kick this habit, then you will find that people will still treat you as if you still carry the weight. A recent study from the NHS actually showed the people who had slimmed down were still treated like they were less-attractive than other women. So, this proves that the stigma that is caused by obesity is still there even when a woman’s weight is changed. Why is that?

Well, it might be because we see our own fears embodied in larger people, especially slimmer women when they look at more full-bodied women. Health risks, such as diabetes and heart attacks, are more prevalient in those who suffer from obesity. Not only that but the negative attention these people get may instantly turn away those who are interested in them. We see our fears in their bodies and so treat them differently or just flat out try to ignore them and isolate them. Internally we know this is wrong but we still do this.

Just not attraction

Well, think about it, sometimes it’s not really about size. Instead it’s just about what we are sexually and emotionally attracted to. For instance, some people may be attracted to hot Chelsea escorts, others may prefer a chilled out gamer girl. We all have different interest and kinks when it comes to finding the perfect partner. Some people are interested in larger partners whilst overs are simply not interested. It’s important to realise that this disinterest is not actually a fat stigma. Instead, it is just someone’s personal preferences. Unless someone is outright insulting you about your weight, remember that sometimes its solely about sexual preference and attraction. Don’t mistake the two together.

Overt Sexualization

However, on the other side, keep in mind that some people invert this phobia into a sexual kink. If this kink is mutual (such as through a feeder and feedee relationship) then it is fine, but if you find that people are sexualising your weight through derogatory phrases that you don’t like or are comfortable with then you should speak up about it. This may not be fat phobia but it may result in feeling like you are being objectified for yourself. You deserve to be seen like a person rather than just a sexual object.

Unhelpful Media

Now, there’s a reason why people are trying to push through a law that enforces photographers to disclose if a model has been photoshopped or not. It is because seeing photoshopped models on a magazine cover can give a young woman unrealistic expectations about what her body should look like. However, this may cause her to stop eating or develop an eating disorder. This can have extremely negative effects on the body, especially if she is still growing. Bodies come in many shapes and sizes. However, as magazines and media are interested in selling their products, they focus mainly on the ideal shape that will appeal to both men and women. Whilst they mainly do this to increase their business, it is inherently fatphobic and can do a lot of damage.

Public Transport

Okay, so if you are an oversized woman, one of the most nerve-wracking experiences can be to go on public transport. Now, people aren’t fat-phobic by nature. A lot of them just don’t like their personal space being impeached. However, that doesn’t take away from the sense of shame or fear during the busier times. You are scared that you are taking up so much room that you will ultimately become a burden or have other people start to mock you for your size. Well, not everyone is like this. If it does happen to you then it is important to stand up for yourself. You have a right to be seen in public, or to go on public transport, just like everyone else.

Fatphobia is a real problem

It can be hard to live in a society that doesn’t appreciate that every woman at any size is like a goddess. No one is the same and it’s important to appreciate that there never really is going to be the perfect size. That’s why the concept of beauty has changed throughout time and culture. If you are a bigger woman, don’t feel ashamed of yourself. It’s time for you to stand up for your rights. Be proud of who you are and don’t let any tell you otherwise!

Shield Your Finances During the Recession with Bath Real Estate

| News | No Comments

We’ve all seen the signs. Economy and business analysts have been at the forefront of warning UK citizens of an economic downturn during the past few months. Although a recession is not yet upon Great Britain, the official estimates from IHS Markit/CIPS Purchasing Managers’ Index, published in August 2019, showed economic contractions across the board.

 

Bath is one of the few real estate markets in the UK where property investment is actually a sound idea through the recession. Pritchards with its top Bath estate agents are here to help you make sense of Bath properties and secure the best deal for your assets.

Technical vs Practical Recession

If we are to abide by economic theory, two consecutive negative growth quarters are necessary for a recession to be officially declared. The only reason this has not yet taken place is that the services sector has pulled more than its weight as of late. To be fair, it does account for 4/5ths of Britain’s GDP. Up until now, good service performance helped compensate for the significant downsizing of the UK’s industry.

And it’s not just the UK that is down-shifting its industry – several European countries are going through the same phase. This is indicative of the fact that, when a recession does occur, it will most likely happen in more than just one country, much like it did back in 2007/8.

So, how does one protect their financial assets during a recession? Below, you’ll find a list of practical advice you can follow to at least partially dodge the uppercut of a depression.

No Time Is Too Early  

#1. SIPs Are Always a Good Idea. Short for systematic investment plans, SIPs usually work best during volatile markets. They’re the ones that get customers the most value if they don’t mind weathering the storm.

#2. Focus on Long Term. If you absolutely need your cash in the next 2-3 years, it might be best to switch over to a liquid fund. It’s important to look for a longer timeframe in order to give your SIP portfolio a chance to purchase at low prices. Then, as soon as the markets turn bullish again, you’ll actually make a profit.

#3. Less Volatility, More Stability. Hybrid funds should be your go-to place to protect financial assets simply because they’re not subjected to the same ups and downs as the rest of the market. Dynamic asset allocation, multi-asset funds, and regular hybrids are some of the most popular options.

#4. Real Estate Is Tricky. Overall, everybody warns against investing in real estate as a way to protect their finances during a recession. This is a general rule that has some exceptions, though, because certain local markets seem to have their own mind. Bath, for instance, held steady even through the last recession. By 2010, homeowners were already making a profit off their property.

Navigating a macro-economic downturn can be tricky, especially if you want to make sure you lose as little of your money’s worth as possible. Fortunately, the right investment plan, as well as the right property can secure your position and help you land on your feet once the weather clears.

The Joys of Social Work

| News | No Comments

Not everyone is cut out for social care jobs. They are very admirable roles that, a lot of the time, do not get the credit it deserves as a profession. Often, it can be the case that there is a lot of emphasis placed on the doom and gloom of social work. What isn’t talked about enough are the positive aspects of social work. So let’s take a look at some of the pros of working in this field.

Variety:

Social work encompasses a whole range of different careers, so there’s variety in that sense. There’s also tons of variety within specific roles too. Often the people and situations you work with and in will provide their own unique problems to solve, and their own unique rewards of the job too. There’s very little chance in a market like social work that you’re going to be doing the same thing day in, day out.

Positive impact:

At the end of the day, your role in a lot of jobs in the private sector is to make someone else richer. This is not the case in social work, instead you know the work that what you’re doing is having a very real and positive impact on someone’s life. Often to the most vulnerable members of society. For a lot of people, this level of job satisfaction beats money every time.

Career growth:

There is a lot of training that is needed for a social worker in a specialised role. This combined with some of the more difficult aspects of the role means there are often a limited candidate pool  who can take on senior roles within a specialised area. As a result, if you are a good social care worker, this won’t go unnoticed and career opportunities will arise quicker than you might expect.

Strong long term job outlook:

We live in turbulent times, in the age of mind bending technology and AI, a lot of people are questioning what jobs will be obsolete in ten years time. Social work on the other hand is bucking this trend. With rises in certain age demographics meaning a larger workforce is needed. It is forecast that social care roles will have to expand a further 15% by 2029. Therefore, if you choose this as a career, it is a steady one that you can have for life, if you want it.

There are three main types of the Taber abrasion testing known as the ASTM 4060, ASTM F1978-12, and MILA-8625.

Block on Ring Wear Testing

The second type is the block on ring wear testing. This is the application of a normal load to the metallic test block. This means that it is going to be subjected to the sliding and abrasive motion against the metallic ring of the machine. This is going to be done in the ASTM G77 that is used to rank the material pairs that is based on the loss of the volume for both the block and the ring. It is going to be very useful when you are attempting to characterize the metal-on-metal wear rate.

Pin on Disk Wear Testing

The third type is the pin on disk wear testing. This is when two different materials are going to be involved in the abrading. One material is going to be machined inside of the pin and the other one inside of the disk. This is the best way to determine the different wear properties. If you are wanting to compare the tribological properties of a pair of materials, then you are going to want to use these types of testing. These properties are going to include the frictional force coefficients.

Blade on Block wear testing

The fourth type is the blade on block wear testing. This is going to utilize the object that is going to articulate back and forth on a stationary specimen. This will happen while it is being subjected to the constant normal load. The examples of this behavior is going to be characterized by this type of test is the lifespan of the coatings and the coefficient of the friction. It is the most useful when the specimen needs the environmental conditions that are not standard. This can also happen if a higher load force than the pink on desk testing can be achieved. Coatings and ink are going to be printed on the membrane switches that can be affected by the abrasive forces when they repeat because of the human finger. Some other things that can affect this are cleaning, rubbing, wiping, storage, shipping, or just accidental damage to it. But you are going to be able to see any type of visible wear on the material by subjecting it to the coatings and inks in a repetitive manner when you are using the abrasive force in the testing.

Custom

The fifth type is custom abrasion and wear testing. This is going to be used when the client has a procedure that is not standard or a specimen that they are trying to test. The element has all of the capabilities that you will need in order to create a proper setup. This is going to mimic the specific application that allows for a simulation that is real life. This is usually going to be the best solution if you need specific data recognition. The material might need a real life cycle expectation if this wants you to want to do with the testing.

PTSD – Occurrence and Overcoming it

| News | No Comments

No individual is prepared to overcome a traumatic event. The body and mind are in a state of shock after the experience. The events may be replayed time and again, recurring nightmares and feelings of edginess are very well documented. There is a certain disconnect with the immediate world as the person is shaken up.

For individuals having resilience, this state of shock and horror will wash out with the passage of time. They can sort out their feelings, thoughts and process the events and then move on. The symptoms can decrease over a period of time, be it days, weeks or months.

In the case of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the memories of the disastrous events may not phase out that easily. People do not tend to feel better each day. As a matter of fact, they are often coping with it on a day to day basis. Battling with trauma can be severely debilitating and insights from the scientific community have revealed a lot of useful research that can assist in coping with the effects of PTSD.

Who can become a victim of PTSD?

A common misconception is that PTSD is more of a threat to soldiers or those belonging to the military service. No denying that it poses a risk to them, but PTSD can also develop from the events which feel threatening or daunting to a person. It can occur in any person, be it at home or wherever.

Natural disaster, child abuse, rape, domestic violence, neglect and terrorist attacks or car accidents and many more such events can also lead to PTSD. Apart from that, commonplace incidents can also throw a person into PTSD which can range from bullying, medical procedure and some playground accident. This common myth that only life-threatening events can cause PTSD couldn’t be further from the truth. PTSD is simply because of perceptions or the reactions of a person traumatized from a particular incident.

There is a key difference between the victim of other traumatic experience and PTSD. The victims of PTSD have unwanted symptoms that keep on returning. It intrudes their ability to think properly and focus on the tasks at hand. Rather, they tend to have recurring thoughts about the experiences without their control over it.

Red flags of PTSD

PTSD is, in particular, a form of the stress-related disorder. It is diagnosed usually by the healthcare professionals with a guidebook, called the DSM. The degree of indescribable trauma experienced by the individuals can be helped with proper treatment. The DSM guidebook lists down 4 common symptoms of PTSD:

The DSM lists four clusters of symptoms:

  • Hyperarousal
  • Avoidance
  • Terrorising flashbacks
  • Damaging or harmful thoughts

Hyperarousal

Certain victims of PTSD may simply be overly active, edgy or always on alert for no particular reason. They may experience anxiety, are unable to say no or become busy for most of the time. They may even overreact to a balloon popping.

It is as if the self-defence mechanism is constantly activated. In addition to that, during the ‘fight, flight or freeze’ situation, the senses become hyperactive in order to determine a line of attack.

Avoidance      

For the victims of PTSD, avoidance is one strategy, using which they can deflect overwhelming stress. Another method is to dissociate or become numb to a considerable degree.

Unhealthy Thoughts or Feelings

The individual suffering from PTSD may become withdrawn from his reality. They often lose interest, ability to enjoy or are unable to fully focus on the task at hand.

Terrorising Flashbacks    

The flashbacks are sensations, reactivated memories or emotions that make the frightening event all the more real and disturbing. These flashbacks can be triggered by a related event, causing huge distress to a person.

Flashbacks can occur in the presence or the absence of conscious memories. It can occur in a case where a person can recall a memory at will, which is called explicit memories. It can also occur when memories are formed early in childhood, these are called implicit memories.

Brain and PTSD

According to neuroimaging studies, there are certain changes in the functionality and structure of the brain when compared to the brains of individuals without PTSD. As per research, there are changes in the following parts of the brain:

  • Amygdala
  • Hippocampus
  • Ventromedial prefrontal cortex

PTSD and Hippocampus

Hippocampus is the portion of the brain that undergoes major changes. It oversees memory as well as the capacity to differentiate the present from the past. It stores the memories, but can also reactivate them in a response of particular stimuli. It is reported that hippocampus of the PTSD survivors is quite smaller in comparison which explains the brain’s lack of ability to distinguish past from the present. It also explains sudden panic attacks or flashbacks.

PTSD and Amygdala

The ventromedial PFC and amygdala work in synchronisation. This portion of the brain is responsible for self-awareness and emotional responses. It becomes smaller in size and its ability to work out the ‘fight or flight’ decreases quite so. This also explains the overreaction to harmless everyday events.

Treatment of PTSD

Recovering or treatment of PTSD is all about comforting the mind. It is a process that is different for each person.

Similar to the changes in the brain after the traumatic incident, the therapeutic process can rewire the brain, which helps in resolving the trauma while also repairing the ability of the brain to function properly.

Mindfulness or Mindsight

The human brain changes after these experiences, but new mental abilities can be acquired with some effort.

Mindsight is a process that allows a person to be more informed about the dynamics of the mind, without being overwhelmed by them. It allows the victims to switch off the autopilot of knee jerk reactions.

As is the case, it is necessary for the PTSD survivors to understand their suffering and the mechanism behind it. This will make them feel less alarmed and mitigate their overreactions. It will also allow them to live a fuller life.
