‘The Bachelor’ 2014 spoilers: Juan Pablo leaked ending? Winner not significant

“The Bachelor” 2014 spoilers have been given out by Juan Pablo himself judging by all of his actions and ABC has got to be miffed by them.

As Lalate pointed out in a Feb. 24 report, Reality Steve has backed up suspicions that Juan Pablo and winner Nikki Ferrell split up. Juan Pablo has been seen out at basketball games and pictured with other women…especially Mayra Veronica.

“Hey, another week, another tabloid story of Juan Pablo [flirting] out at a Clipper game in LA. Does it mean that he did? Of course not. But it certainly doesn’t help any image he’s trying to portray,” Reality Steve said.

It is hard to believe that Nikki Ferrell would be alright with her man going around getting photographed with other women while the two of them must hide their relationship from public view until “The Bachelor” finale. At the beginning of the season Reality Steve noted that Juan Pablo is not the brightest bachelor ABC chose as their lead for the show. This seems right on the money given the stupid comments Juan Pablo made about homosexuals a few months ago and flaunting his flirtatious, single lifestyle — giving the signal he has no intention of settling down. Could it be a ploy and a way to throw “Bachelor” fains off? Possibly, but not likely at all.

If ABC wanted Juan Pablo to bring an element of suspense to this season of the show, they were severely let down.

“After the Final Rose” broadcast will be interesting to say the least following “The Bachelor” 2014 finale.

Dr. Oz talks extreme weight loss ‘thigh gap’ diets and magnesium energy boosters

For several years, girls, teens and young women have been obsessed with achieving the newest slim sensation: Thigh Gaps. But their extreme weight loss plans can pose dangers, according to Dr. Mehmet Oz. On his Feb. 25 talk show, Dr. Oz explored thigh gap diets. Plus: Find out how to boost your energy with magnesium.

As an example of how these diets can become obsessive, Dr. Oz talked with Camille Hugh, author of “The Thigh Gap Hack: The Shortcut to Slimmer, Feminine Thighs Every Woman Secretly Desires” (click for details). Camille feels that her book does a service in offering tricks such as overcoming hunger, exercises and focusing primarily on very low calorie foods. She defended her desire to achieve the thigh gap look.

However, Dr. Oz is concerned that books and views such as Camille’s can lead to eating disorders. He asked eating disorder specialist Dr. Jennifer Thomas to offer her insights.

Author of “Almost Anorexic: Is My (or My Loved One’s) Relationship with Food a Problem? (The Almost Effect),” Dr. Thomas notes that Camille’s emphasis on extreme weight loss and low body fat parallels the development of anorexia. By obsessing on those goals, young girls are at risk of developing eating disorders.

In addition to the emotional aspects of anorexia, girls focused on developing thigh gaps put their health at risk, warned Dr. Oz. They may lose muscle, which impacts the metabolism and even can affect the heart.

Also on the show, Dr. Oz discussed magnesium for energy and health. Symptoms of insufficient magnesium include constipation, anxiety, fatigue and muscle spasms. Studies show that up to 75 percent of American adults lack enough magnesium.

To boost your magnesium levels, eat these foods:

  • kidney beans
  • black beans
  • brown rice
  • quinoa
  • bran cereal

School History Trips to Explore Washington DC

School history trips to Washington DC take students to the centre of contemporary US power: the seat of the US President in the White House. It is also a city marked by its nation’s recent events, and, as such, is an excellent destination for students seeking to understand the role of the United States of America in the age after European colonialism. The National Museum of American History, the Ford’s Theatre National Historic Site, the Arlington National Cemetery and many other sites provide a full and fascinating itinerary for students.

The National Museum of American History

Belonging to the Smithsonian Institute of nineteen museums, nine research centres and a zoo in Washington DC and New York City, this museum in Washington DC is one of the foremost institutions in which students can learn about recent events in the US. Its collections encompass numerous facets of the nation’s cultural heritage, including: nearly forty prints from three government survey missions to the American West in the 19th century; Chinese American clothes from the Virginia Lee Mead Collection that provide insights into the cultural lives of Chinese immigrants; a sampling of objects that illuminate the huge Mexican presence in the US; objects relating to women mathematicians in the late 19th century, and much more. Students on school history trips to Washington DC could spend days examining the museum’s collections. It also houses special exhibits on specific items or groups of items pertaining to US cultural heritage.

Ford’s Theatre National Historic Site

The Ford’s Theatre National Historic Site preserves Ford’s Theatre and the Petersen House in Washington DC, the two sites where the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln in 1865 played out. On 14 April 1865, President Lincoln and his wife watched a performance of Our American Cousin at the theatre, during which John Wilkes Booth entered their box and shot him. The gravely injured President was carried across the road to the Petersen House, where he died the next morning. While visiting Washington DC on school history trips, students can experience these seminal events and see items associated with the assassination, including the Derringer pistol used by Booth and the coat President Lincoln was wearing on the night.

Arlington National Cemetery

The Arlington National Cemetery is a vast military cemetery where soldiers who took part in the nation’s many conflicts have been buried. It was established during the American Civil War, and saw burials from that war as well as casualties and veterans from all of the wars since, up to the current War on Terror. It is an arresting reminder for students on school history trips that the recent events in the US have been shaped by a high number of wars.
