Carys Nolan's comment, November 2, 2015 4:36 PM
The problems to society with having a large amount of children obese are that these children could end up living shorter lives than their parents. In fact, it is expected that being overweight or obese will overtake tobacco as the leading preventable risk in health in New Zealand within the next 12 months. Having a large amount of children overweight is a problem for the future of our society because children are our future and so when they grow up, if they are obese or overweight then their own children will most likely become obese or overweight also as they will learn off their parents and this cycle will then continue with generations to come. This means that our society will suffer more health problems if everyone is overweight or obese and will therefore lead to more problems for the whole of society like having to pay tax for things like health care.

If I ate a lot of meat then I could be at risk of getting cancer meaning that I would want to cut down on my meat intake (physical) this means that I would be going against my beliefs of meat being good for you (spiritual) and this means that I could get upset and would also be scared of this new found risk I may have (mental/emotional) this could cause me to take my emotions out on other people which would mean that I would be ruining my relationships and prevent me from being able to develop new ones (social). But if I didn't eat that much meat and I was already aware of these risks then my beliefs would be confirmed and I would value myself more knowing that I make the right decisions (spiritual) this means that I will be proud of myself for making the right decision and this would make me happier (mental/emotional) especially now knowing that I am definitely reducing my risk of cancer meaning that I can be physically healthier (physical) This means that I will feel confident within myself and this would allow me to develop, maintain and strengthen relationships (social).

NZ Anti-Drink Driving Commercial - Legend - YouTube

Ian Adamson's insight:

What message does this societal strategy send out?

more...
Senita Brady's comment, September 9, 2015 1:35 AM
The societal message in this video is to not let your friend drive when they have been drinking and to say something about it. By saying something to your friend to stop them from drinking then driving makes the road a lot safer and causing less accidents and less people in hospital, and he stopped him from risking his own life.
Abby Prince's comment, September 14, 2015 8:43 PM
This ad sends out the message that it is okay to speak to your friends if they are drinking and planning to do something that can risk hurting themselves or others. This ad has a comedic line to it to show that you dont have to talk to them as if they were a child, which could anger them and drive them to drink and drive or whatever they are planning to do, it also shows that if you were a true mate, you wouldn't allow your friend to drive when they are wasted, or get into the car with anyone who has been drinking. If everybody could do what the guy did in the ad,there could be less drink drivers on the road putting people at risk.
Carys Nolan's comment, September 21, 2015 5:02 PM
This societal strategy of a drunk driving advert is that it is OK to speak out about what is right because if you can be brave and bring yourself to stop a friend from doing something that you know is stupid then this will save a lot of regret in the long term. For example if the friend hadn't spoken out then the friend would have driven home and been at risk of having a fatal crash. So this ad also carries the message that you shouldn't drink drive because the consequences are not only that you may not survive but also that it will have a massive impact on your family and the people you love because they will be extremely upset and could become depressed. So the overall message this ad is sending out is don't drink and drive and make sure no one else does to otherwise you will both have to suffer the consequences.

Carys Nolan's comment, October 3, 2015 3:38 PM
I think these sentencing's are appropriate because drugs are extremely harmful and can ruin your life, so they are illegal for a reason and the consequences are there to try to make you not want to take them. However, I do believe that there are some exception like people who require them for medicinal purposes and I don't believe that it is appropriate for these sentences to apply to them. But then I think that they should be applied to everyone fairly if we are going to have them, otherwise it would cause conflict. So I think that these sentences either need to apply to everyone or no-one. Therefore I believe that they could be reduced a bit seeing as they may be applying to people who have to use them for medicinal purposes. But I do agree that the fines and/or imprisonment for supply or manufacture should stay the same because they are most likely just wanting the money and are obviously not using them for medicinal purposes and are not taking into account the risks the drugs they are providing can have for other people. But I do not think that it is appropriate for someone to be sent to jail for such a long time of 10 years maximum for allowing their vehicle to be used for a drug offence, especially if it's only with class C drugs, because they would not have been directly involved; but I do believe that they would need to be fined a lot of money to make them realise that what they are doing is nearly as bad as an offence as actually dealing the drugs and should be taken as a warning. I then think that imprisonment would be acceptable if it is their second or third time being caught lending their vehicle for drug offences because the fines are obviously not doing enough to make them understand that what they are doing is wrong.

A few years back and still going on there has always been arguments in my family. They basically all hate each other and I could definitely feel that affecting my mental health. I got so confused who to believe, struggled to concentrate in school or to concentrate on myself at all. Cause of the lack of care for myself I started being sick more often. During my worst times I was sick up to 3 days a week. This showed me that your physical health can definitely be affected by your mental health, which on the other hand is connected with your relationships, especially the ones with your family members

If I didn't like exercise and vitamin D made me fitter (physical) then I would be fulfilling my beliefs of keeping fit and this means that I would value myself more (spiritual) This means that I will be happier because I will be fulfilling my beliefs without even having to exercise (mental/emotional) This new found positive attitude would mean that I would be more willing to interact with people meaning that I can strengthen relationships and develop new ones (social). But if I liked exercise and this was found to be true then I may feel a bit upset because I would feel like I was wasting my time by exercising when I can just get vitamin D (mental/emotional) Since I now know that I would probably only need to take vitamin D and not exercise then I would be potentially ruining relationships because while exercising you can bond with the people you exercise with (social) This means that I will be now going against my beliefs of bonding with friends and exercising (spiritual) Going against my beliefs of not exercising may cause me to become less fit because vitamin D may be less effective (physical).

Benefits of red wine ingredient resveratrol similar to gym workout, study claims - Health - NZ Herald News

Ian Adamson's insight:

What are the positives/negatives of drinking wine?

more...
Carys Nolan's comment, November 1, 2015 8:54 PM
The positives of drinking wine are that is that it contains a compound called resveratrol. This provides health benefits similar to those we get from working out including, improved physical performance, better heart function and increased muscle strength. This is a positive because individuals who are incapable of exercising due to injuries, , obesity or other health problems for example will be able to drink wine as an alternative. This is also a positive because for some people drinking wine may be more enjoyable than exercising and so they will be doing something they enjoy while getting many of the health benefits at the same time which is better because it is enhance their mental/emotional well-being at the same time as their physical. Whereas exercising, although it will also enhance the persons physical well-being through the health benefits it brings, could potentially be harming some people's mental/emotional well-being if they feel like they have to force themselves to do it as they will feel down every time they know they have to exercise and won't want to do it. But in doing this would most likely mean that you would drink wine more often than you would usually. This could result in negative consequences like brain or liver damage in the long term due to too much alcohol. The brain damage would result in a decrease of occupational performance and therefore could result in that person losing their jobs. So I think that this method of drinking red wine should only be used to get the same health benefits of exercising by people who are physically incapable of working out, but should still be drunk in moderation.
kudakwashe's comment, November 2, 2015 7:26 PM
The negative of drinking red wine is that the actually wine though it may contains alcohol. Which means if you drink too much an individual may get drunk very easily and may probably become and alcoholic thinking it is goof for them. With this mentally thinking it is easy to assume how many people can quickly get addicted to alcohol thinking it is a great for you thus consuming more than they need to. However red wine contains the resveratrol compound that contains similar health benefits to that of working out. By the red wine doing this one is able to get the health benefit such as individuals less likely to have cancer and dementia. Also to improve bodies physical performance and and develop a better heart These positive benefits are great from drinking wine. But some individuals may drink red wine to excess thinking that it may do more good than harm. However this article does not mention the age when one should start drink red wine thus people could abuse this research and maybe eventually become alcoholics with serious problems. As this this article mention only the positives from drinking red wine it does not mention the negatives. Such as how the alcohol in your system effecting your body but making you slow and impairing your thinking if you drink too much. However drinking red wine occasionally is not too bad as you can be able to have the benefits from red wine but not have too much that you become drunk. Drinking red wine in moderation is key as having a glass instead of 5 glasses would be much better for someones well being.

What strategies could you put into place for someone who is overeating?

more...
Carys Nolan's comment, November 1, 2015 9:09 PM
A strategy that could be put in place for someone who is overeating could be not to eat in front of the TV but instead at the dinner table. This is because, according to this article, eating in front of the TV can cause people to overeat as they are so distracted by what they are watching so they could be eating without even noticing. This means that you could keep eating without realizing that you were full a long time ago. Another strategy you could put in place along with eating at the dinner table could be eating slowing because this article also tells us that eating too fast can lead to overeating because it takes 20 minutes for your digestive system to tell your brain that your body feels full. It is also a good idea to drink lots of water because this fills you up and sometimes when you think you are hungry, it is actually your body telling you that you are thirsty. So eating away from the TV, for example at the dinner table, away from any distractions so you can focus on what you are eating and therefore stop when you are 'medium-full' as recommended and by eating slowly so that you are giving your digestive system time to tell your body that you are full and by keeping hydrated all the time by drinking lots of water which keeps you feeling fuller and also quenches your thirst which can be sometimes mistaken by your brain for hunger are all good strategies to put into place for someone who is overeating as it will stop them from doing this.
kudakwashe's comment, November 2, 2015 7:39 PM
A strategy that could be put into place could be society restricting types of insane celebrity diets. As these diets are often promoted towards teenagers and young adults but restricting them, allows for self eating programs that can be geared to help adolescents and young people alike better aware of the types of food they eat. This would help people understand how to use portion control and eat slowly. So they learn to eat to enjoy and savor the food instead of eating to consume everything that happens to be on the plate. This type of environment could be around a dinner table so that they are not distracted into eating fast or over eating- by consuming everything on the plate .This strategy could help young people and families alike as they can all participate and learn to eat healthy food together in smaller portions so that they do not over eat. By doing this children will from learning this at a young age children will know how not to over eat and be able to maintain a healthy lifestyle in the future.

Carys Nolan's comment, October 3, 2015 3:24 PM
Spiritually, they may have beliefs and values based around healthy eating/drinking which they have not been able to fulfil by drinking other types of coke, but now they can still enjoy the taste of coke but can also feel happy that they are following their beliefs and values. This has a knock on effect with them mentally/emotionally because by fulfilling these beliefs and values they have while still drinking what they enjoy, they would feel better about themselves and what they are drinking because even though it is not completely sugar free or the healthiest drink there is, it is still better than normal coke and this would make them feel proud of themselves more making an improvement on what they are putting in their bodies. This would have a knock on effect with their social well-being because now that they are happy to drink coke they will be able to drink it when their friends are when they are all hanging out because before they may not have wanted to have any as their beliefs and values would be telling them that its too unhealthy and their friends could think they are weird for not wanting coke. So now they will be able to become closer with their friends as they have more bonding time while drinking coke and they won't think of their friend as weird for not wanting any, so friendships can be maintained. Now that they are happy to drink coke can also be a bad thing because it could mean that they start drinking it all the time and this is not good because although this drink uses stevia instead, it is still not completely sugar free and therefore can still cause obesity if consumed too often.

the affects on this drunk are that he isn’t able to process anything because his brain isn't functioning properly because of the effects of the alcohol , and having the amount of alcohol he had is dangerous and it can make you do things you wouldn’t usually do. When he was sober he swung the boy around and had fun but when he was drunk he didn’t have any control over what he was doing and thinking he was having fun he started swinging the boy except this time he went into the lamp which caused harm to the young boy and as soon as the drunk man saw that his emotions changed.
Carys Nolan's comment, October 6, 2015 3:40 AM
This situation of the drunk getting out of control and injuring the child and getting kicked out would not affect him immediately because he would be to drunk to even realise what was going on at the time. But once he has stopped drinking, recovers from his hangover and realises what he has done, if he can remember, then he will probably feel terribly guilty and annoyed at himself. It could push him to stop drinking or at least ensure that he does not drink as much to get himself drunk because he will now know the affects of alcohol on him and that he cannot control his actions as far as him hurting his family.
