Comments for Power Balance Knock Off Getting Television Air Time

By not staying with

By not staying with him and esdorning his low priority treatment of you & your girl,you are helping her understand that it isn't ok to be treated that way. Not sure how old your girl is, but if she is old enough to question why he's behaving that way, maybe tell her He isn't trying to make you feel bad. His brain can't see or register that he's making others feel bad it's just how he acts and we cannot talk him into seeing or understanding why it doesn't work. that is just how some peoples brains work. and I would assume his parent/s treated him that way as well. You could explain that too. It may help I talk to my children about my father in those terms to explain behavior that is very negating of self. Best of luck and proud of you for not staying with him.

That's one of the be

That's one of the best uses for the Wall Street Journal I've ever heard of. I feel some of the same apathy as you feel, and I'm sure there are many <a href="">oterhs</a> who share it. What a great way to keep the rabble in line by making them feel apathetic about the system. It's no accident, I assure you, it's baked into the current system.But rather than talk about politics, I'll end here

that, it seems that,

that, it seems that, even these days, big movie productions still have a<a href=""> tncdeeny</a> to either kill off their strong women (good example: Avatar ) or strongly display their actions as motivated by romance even Eowyn in The Return of the King was shown to be motivated much more by her love for Aragorn than she ever was in the book. I think that's a real shame, as it just keeps continuing to reinforce old stereotypes that do justice to neither women nor men.Now don't get me wrong I am in no way saying that everyone should be 100% politically correct all the time, but I do think that a podcast with such a wide and loyal listener base should try to be a bit less cliche9d when it comes to gender roles.Please keep up the otherwise great work! As always, I can't wait for the next episode, and am keeping my fingers crossed for a new season of Secrets of Middle-Earth as well!

Regarding Simon's qu

Regarding Simon's question asked on the poscadt you don't need to go into phpmysql or do anything fancy to rename the Admin account. It can be done very easily from the admin panel.First create a new account with your choice of username and give it administrator rights. Sign off from the admin account & sign in using the new account. Delete the admin account and take the option to reassign all of admin's existing posts to your new account.

It Works!

This thing works! My father is 74, has diabetes with neuropathy of the lower legs, and has a tendency to fall backward. He requires a walker to get about. After getting his bracelet, he felt more stable and capable of walking unaided! He fell immediately, but he felt more stable!

When the test subjects are tested for strength and balance without the braclet, the man pulls downward and OUTWARD, which moves their center of gravity and knocks them off balance. When wearing the bracelet, the man pulls straight downward, NOT OUTWARD, allowing them to use their core and leg muscles for stabilization, thus maintaing their balance. Also, they were most likely first tested without the bracelet, allowing them to be more prepared for the second test. Then there's the obvious- the man doing the pulling probably pulls a bit harder when the subject is not "empowered " by the magic bracelet.

"'ve heard the buzz about it on talk TV and the internet"
- Yeah the many internet skeptics and podcasters who correctly point out that these kinds of bracelets are magical nonsense dressed up in pseudo-scientific claims!

"If it doesn't work exactly like you've seen in this commercial..."
- You mean in these carnival shyster applied kinesiology tricks we've just shown members of the public being duped by!

Sadly not that new

This one's been around for a minimum of a year. Many people I've spoken to about PowerBalance ask if it's like iRenew because of these commercials. I've seen therm in stores, too. My favorite part is the text on the box: "May help to promote health, strength & endurance."


What a great set of weasel words.

Meanwhile my team did an in-depth investigation of PowerBalance here that's worth checking out:

This shite is not limited to the bowels of late night infomercials either, I have found myself intellectually insulted on a regular basis when this infomercial airs in the middle of the day after the likes of Meet the Press and Face the Nation. On a related note, someone has been make the rounds of the local fundamentalist group (which unfortunately includes the near entirety of my extended family) hawking these same gel bracelets but replacing whackadoodle pseudoscience with (no shit) The Power of Jesus! and then proceeds to fleece the faithful a mere $99.95 US each. When trying explain to my stepfather, who wears 3 of these things on each arm, that they are nothing but 10 cent gel bracelets his response was (again, no shit) was to quote Bill O'reilly's "Tide goes in, tide goes out... You can't explain that." at me.
