ND recognizes eating disorders

first_imgIn observance of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, the University Counseling Center is promoting awareness of the dangerous effects of the pressure to look perfect. “Students can feel like a lot of aspects of their life are out of control, and food is one aspect that they can control,” Maureen Lafferty, assistant director of the University Counseling Center, said. “An eating disorder can develop from this mentality.” The theme of this year’s national campaign to promote awareness of eating disorders is “Everybody Knows Somebody,” which reflects that the number of eating disorders in the United States is on the rise. The campaign also focuses on how to reach out to people with these disorders. Lafferty said although people commonly associate eating disorders with women, men can also suffer from them. “Women are certainly affected more, but eating disorders are not limited exclusively to women,” she said. Signs of an eating disorder include a restricted diet, mood swings, compulsive and obsessive exercise and low self-esteem. However, Lafferty said any radical change in behavior is a cause for concern. “If you notice a significant drop in weight or a change in eating behavior, it may indicate an eating disorder,” she said. “If you have a concern, it should be expressed in the spirit of care and compassion. “It is a sensitive subject, so express your concern in a caring way rather than being accusatory” Lafferty also said turning to professionals can be a smart way to address concerns. They can provide additional information and help develop a plan for whether and how to approach the person. “Eating disorders are way more complex than we think and in some cases we need professional input to figure out the best way to approach the situation,” Lafferty said. If a student notices a friend engaging in harmful behavior, he or she should turn to a rector or a member of the University Counseling Center, Lafferty said. “Do not feel like you alone need to be responsible in the situation,” she said. “If you notice a change in a person’s behavior, do not act like a detective. Approach them with an attitude of compassion rather than anything accusatory.”last_img read more

There’s a whole “Lota’’ retro love in this bayside home

first_imgThe windows in the open plan living area offers views.The heart, however, is the kitchen. It’s an open-plan space that breathes life into the lounge and dining spaces.“It’s all solid timber,” Ms Holden said. “These new kitchens, you put water on them and they melt, but that’s just such a solid kitchen — you just couldn’t build cupboards like that nowadays.”The kitchen is also an archive, with a surprise waiting for the new owners in the cabinetry. “Inside the pantry door, you’ve got the kids’ height chart still there from the 1950s,” she said. “So it’s got this real historic feel to it — and it’s a home that the family just loved.”Ms Holden said there’s already been great response.

Der Klassiker: Bayern head to resurgent Dortmund

first_imgInjury-hit Bayern Munich head to resurgent Borussia Dortmund on Saturday shorn of their top stars and with the hosts out to prove there is still life in Germany’s ‘Der Klassiker’.The Bundesliga has been won twice each by Dortmund and Bayern over the last four years and the media has dubbed their meetings ‘Der Klassiker’ – Germany’s answer to Spain’s ‘El Clasico’ between Barcelona and Real Madrid.But a glance at the Bundesliga table highlights Dortmund’s dramatic fall from grace this season with Jurgen Klopp’s side currently tenth having started February bottom of the table after a disastrous run of results.In contrast, Bayern are ten points clear in the league table and heading towards a third straight league title.But Pep Guardiola’s Bavarians will be missing injured key stars Arjen Robben, David Alaba and Franck Ribery at the Signal Iduna Park.Defender Holger Badstuber is struggling with a hip injury, but veteran striker Claudio Pizarro is set to return from a leg injury. Bayern lost for the third time this season last time out going down 2-0 in Munich to Borussia Moenchengladbach, a fortnight ago.There is, however, no talk of an upset from the Dortmund camp.”At the moment it’s certainly not a top-of-the-table clash when you look at the table,” admitted Dortmund’s director of sport Michael Zorc.”But it will still grab the attention of millions of fans across Germany.”‘Bad news’ -With Germany winger Marco Reus in superb form for both club and country alongside top-scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Dortmund have the attack to cause Bayern problems.”We have generally never given up on a home game in advance,” said Klopp, who will be without Germany squad members Kevin Grosskreutz and Erik Durm.”I would suggest we don’t talk much and instead try to put in a good performance.”We’re not at the same level as Bayern and, unless I am mistaken, we never have been, but we have never considered ourselves to have no chance and that also goes for now.”With five wins and two draws in their last seven league games, Dortmund have pulled away from the Bundesliga’s relegation zone. They are free to focus on their domestic form following their Champions League exit to Juventus in the last 16.Even missing Ribery, Alaba and Robben, Klopp expects Bayern to be dangerous.”We still have to reckon with some top quality from Bayern, those boys can all play football,” he said.”But the fact is, Bayern will have to make a few changes without their three fastest players, which is what we have to be concerned about.”You have to prepare yourself for how the opposition will line-up against you.” Without Robben, Bayern’s top scorer this season with 17 goals in 21 games, Guardiola will be missing some pace on the flanks, especially on the left without wing-back Alaba and winger Ribery.”It’s bad news,” said Bayern captain Philipp Lahm.”They are really important for us. We mustn’t complain, we need to look forward.”We’ve got a big squad and have to compensate for losses like this.”Fixtures: SaturdayBayer Leverkusen v HamburgVfL Wolfsburg v VfB StuttgartHoffenheim v Bor.
