AlgaeCal Plus Touted By Dr. Oz For Frail & Weak Bones

Published

AlgaeCal Plus Dr. Oz Recommendation

A lot of people look to Dr. Oz for advice as he reveals easy ways for people at home to take care of themselves. On April 12th, 2012 on Thursday The Dr. Oz Show tackled the issue of frail bones.

As we all age our bones start to lose their strength and become weak and frail. Some people even develop osteoporosis which is described by PubMed Health as the thinning of bone tissue and loss of bone density over time. In fact, researchers estimate that about 1 out of 5 American women over the age of 50 have osteoporosis.

Doctors often recommend a change in diet and taking calcium supplements and vitamin D to help you gain back strength in your bones. Dr. Oz mentioned a company on his show called AlgaeCal that produced a unique type of calcium supplement in their leading product that was shown on the show called AlgaeCal Plus. Another complimentary product by the same company called Strontium Boost is supposed to provide extra mineral support.

One of the reasons many people in the US die so young is because our bones become frail and we get injured said Dr. Oz. If you can make your bones stronger and more healthy overtime you’ll be able to prevent more injuries in the future.

AlgaeCal Plus and StrontiumWe looked into the AlgaeCal products to see how they were described by the company. On a retail website we found here the company described AlgaeCal Plus as, “a plant source of calcium and vital bone building minerals such as magnesium, boron, silica, strontium and more…. All derived from a South American Algae called Algas CalcareasTM. Algas Calcareas is USDA and IFOAM certified organic, making AlgeaCal the perfect calcium supplement for Vegans and Vegetarians. This whole food calcium complex is also enhanced with the essential bone supporting ingredients, vitamin D3, vitamin K2 and Boron glycinate to create the clinically proven bone health builder, AlgaeCal® Plus.”

Reviews are important when trying to figure out whether you should actually buy products that people are touting. We found public reviews on the AlgaeCal product and will provide a few of them for you below.

This person calls themselves A. Harper from California and says this about AlgaeCal Plus, “This is the only Calcium I will take. After years of trying everything, I settled on this one during my postpartum period in 2009, and continued taking it through a 2nd pregnancy and now nursing my daughter on demand. I have no problems with my bone health anymore, which a lot of women get when they are pregnant/lactating and not taking in a lot of good quality calcium. My teeth are no longer sensitive . I just feel much better and my bones are stronger… and my little newborn gets it in the breast milk! I highly recommend this!”

This other person named Nana left this review about taking AlgaeCal Plus for osteoporosis, “Broke both wrists Jan. 11, 2009. Saw the innumerable x-rays of wrists taken in next 4 months. Healed by April 30. Rebroke right wrist May 30. Knowing I have osteoporosis, I looked for a source of calcium, that would improve the healing this time. Saw ad on internet for Algea Cal and strontium boost and bought both. Took them for next month. Was amazed when I saw the next x-ray. Asked ortho doctor what the white spots all around the wristbone on the x-ray were (having never seen them before). He said it was the calcium being absorbed by my wrist bone. Amazing! Healed in 2 months this time: only half the time.”

Another person says after taking this product they notice differences in more than their bones but their nail strength and growth as well. They state, “I have been using this product off and on for around a year now. I have seen noticeable differences in things like my nails and such when taking this product as compared to regular calcium supplements and notice a decrease in nail strength and growth when I neglect taking it for a couple weeks. Please go to their website and read their research. It really speaks for itself. Hopefully their will be a subscribe and save option available soon as I find I forget to order it regularly until I notice I am out!”

The studies that have been done on this natural calcium supplement collected from algae plants has said that bone density tests have improved after taking these pill supplements for just 6 months. The recommended dosages that Dr. Oz mentioned on the show was 1 capsule three times a day. We recommend you follow the directions on the bottle.

Either way this sounds like a great product that you can use at home to take care of weak and frail bones as you age. With so many people reaching that age where their bones are starting to show age it makes sense products like this are becoming important and popular.

    Thanks for this Algaecal review from Dr Oz. The fact that the company also has a 6 month guarantee is really reassuring, and they also have studies on their website which prove that their plant calcium works.
    I see the difference and Algaecal sounds great.

    I am currently taking FOZAMAX and have done for many years, however, my condition (Osteoporis) has not improved, in fact, it has worsened, my Dr just says to keep taking it, but I would like to try something else, if I choose your products, would I still need to take my present medication? Kind Regards, Ruth

William Rick Singer’s Three Easy Ways To Get Into Great Universities; The College Admission Scheme

Published

on

The college admission scheme of William Rick SInger


The wealthy continue to define the line between them and the less fortunate because, apparently, even the most selective universities in the country can be bought—one way or the other.

Both parents and students alike are enraged after the turn of events involving 46 people on the most prominent college admissions cheating scheme in the country.

Those arrested include two SAT/ACT administrators, one exam proctor, nine coaches from elite schools, one college administrator and 33 parents.

These wealthy parents are not sparing a penny to get their children to good universities, as a report says that the elaborate scheme amounted to around $25 million. 

“This is not a case where parents were acting in the best interests of their children. This is a case where parents flaunted their wealth, sparing no expense to cheat the system, so they can set their children up for success with the best education money can buy, literally,” said Joseph Bonavolonta, FBI Special Agent-in-Charge, at a press conference.

Dubbed as the FBI’s “Operation Varsity Blues,” the college admissions scheme worked in two ways. 

At the center of it all was William Rick Singer, founder of Edge College & Career Network a for-profit college prepper. Mr. Singer is also known as “The Key.”

Singer’s elaborate scam, allegedly, only needed three ways to get the undeserving rich into great universities. 

The first is through cheating. 

Getting high scores on standardized SAT and ACT examinations are one of the sure ways of sealing a spot at admission even in the most selective universities. 

In the case of Singer’s clients, he was the one ensuring the candidates get high scores. Parents would be advised to let their children take the examination on a given date so another person, who’s a lot smarter, can take the test for them. In some cases, the children’s answer sheets would be replaced with ones that have higher results. 

In instances that the student cannot take the exam themselves, one merely need to submit a sample of her penmanship. This was to guide the person taking the exam for them to doctor their penmanship well.

Academy Award nominee, Felicity Huffman had Singer’s people arrange her daughter’s exam, which gained a significant 400 points higher than her practice exam the previous year only for $15,000.

Huffman allegedly wanted to do the same for her younger daughter but decided to back away.

How did they get away with this? By bribing the proctors.

Bribes function a lot in Singer’s admissions scheme. Like in the case of the third way, students get into prestigious universities.

Students pretend to be athletes. 

If students’ SAT and ACT scores won’t help them make the cut, Singer turns average students into competitive athletes. 

Some practices even went great lengths to the extent of photoshopping their children’s photos into stock photos of athletes to make it seem more realistic. 

Singer would bribe university coaches to let Singer’s clients in the university by making a play that they are athletes that the university can benefit from.

However, coaches didn’t have the power to admit students, but they did have the capability to recommend students. So they did with the right push, and it’s not a student’s talents or skills.

This was the case with Lori Loughlin’s two daughters.

Loughlin, famous with her role in Full House between 1988 and 1995, paid a total of $500,000 for Singer’s services to get her two daughters—Isabella, 20, and Olivia, 19—to participate in the University of Southern California’s Crew team. However, both of Loughlin’s daughters never participated in crew, competitively or otherwise.

All of these were transacted through Singer’s nonprofit, Key Worldwide Foundation—a charity that supposedly functions as an educational prepper for underprivileged children who wants to get into colleges and universities.

Parents would easily siphon their payments, without tax, for Singer’s services by giving a hefty donation for the underserved kids in the foundation.

This crooked system has been going on since 2011 and may have produced graduates from prestigious universities during that time. This may not be the only system of college admission schemes, but let this sensationalized conspiracy serve as a warning to whoever wishes to cheat their way through life.

The arrest and the case made against the cheating, lying and the rich who try to curb their future through unjust and unlawful means is a reminder the hard work pays off, and not everything can be bought.

Open Field Program Reawakens Black Academia In Chester County, South Carolina

Black Academia Reawakens In Chester County, South Carolina

Brainerd Institute in Chester, South Carolina was the first and only school in the county for freed slaves and their children and was one of the largest and oldest institutions for Black students in the United States. It closed in 1939 and was up for sale. Actress Phylicia Rashad, daughter of a Brainerd’s alumni, purchased what remained of Brainerd Institute- Kulmer Hall.

Brainerd Institute started in 1866 as a school for freedman and was later named when Rev. Samuel Loomis established churches and schools among blacks near Chester on the Board of Missions of the Presbyterian Church’s order. Started as an elementary school, Brainerd soon expanded to ten grades by 1913 and was a four-year-high-school in the 1930s. When high school admission began to decline, it became Brainerd Junior College.

Public education later expanded in South Carolina, so opportunities for black student admission increased. The shift convinced the Presbyterian Church that Brainerd was no longer a necessity to the community. Reduction of entries and limited funds forced Brainerd to close in 1939.

With only Kulmer Hall as the only remaining building in the state, the property was up for sale. In the late 1990s, a local group was interested in preserving the school. Actress Phylicia Rashad and her sister, dancer Debbie Allen answered the call for support. They bought the only remaining building left of Brainerd in honor of their mother, Vivian Ayers Allen.

Not only Ayers Allen is an alumna of Brainerd’s final graduating class of 1939, but both of her parents were from Brainerd Institute as well. Allen grew up across the street from the school. On numerous occasions, she would bring her daughters to her childhood neighborhood, where they would spend their evenings dancing on the campus grounds. It’s no doubt why Brainerd Institute is very close to the family’s heart.

When Ayers Allen learned that her Alma Mater was on sale and could be redeveloped into apartment complexes, she felt like “someone has to do something.” And so her daughters, Phylicia Rashad and Debbie Allen bought the remaining Kumler Hall and had both hosted fundraising events for the restoration of the hall.

While Kumler Hall is currently under reconstruction, Ayers Allen and her daughters are using the campus’ green spaces for the Open Field Program. The program was first launched in Houston until it was brought to Brainerd. It started in 2017 as the first summer literacy workshop, held on the school’s fields and will continue in summer 2018. The program allows preschoolers to explore its interactive curriculum. Moreover, it offers lessons, workshops, and guest speakers that make students feel more like they are at camp than at school.

Ayers Allen and her daughters are committed to restoring Chester’s tradition of providing education to those in need. The three women will continue to restore Kumler Hall so someday, the Open Fields will become a year-long program that preserves and shares Brainerd Institute’s academic, artistic, and cultural contributions within the community.

Grammar Schools Are Disproportionately Benefiting From Condition Improvement Fund

Published

UK Government Is Using Fund For School Repairs For Grammar Schools Expansion

The main priority for Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) of the United Kingdom is to address significant requirements of schools by building compliance, improving poor building condition, and expanding existing facilities or floor spaces. However, Comprehensive Future discovered that grammar schools are disproportionately benefiting from CIF.

The fund is a government incentive that provides funding for specific improvements of schools and academies that has a significant impact on pupils’ progress. Applicants can apply for funding through the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) via an online portal.

Three main criteria are used by the government to specify whether a school should receive funding. First is the project need, where schools are assessed to determine the bulk of the funding. Second, project planning, where applicants need to show that the risks are understood and the solutions are attainable. The last test is the value of money; there will be an assessment of the breakdown of costs to see if they meet the demands of work.

In 2016, it has been reported that twenty grammar schools are given financial resources to construct new buildings, while only nineteen comprehensive schools are funded. Later in 2017, there were eight projects for grammar school classroom expansion, while only seven projects for comprehensive schools were approved. There are only 163 grammar schools and more than 3,200 comprehensive schools in the country.

Last year, applicants for CIF were more than 3,800 schools, but there are only 1435 of these applicants successfully received funding. Melissa Benn, chair of Comprehensive Future, reported that many of the 2,200 projects that got turned down last year are with a clear and urgent need for essential repair and renovation. Benn said that the government had funded grammar schools millions for building new science blocks, sports halls, and sixth form centers.

Given the fact that there are only 163 grammar schools in the country, Benn said that “it makes no sense” that the government is approving more projects in grammar schools than comprehensive schools.

Benn said that the way the government has used CIF is “secretive and undemocratic.” She aforementioned that they are aware of the government’s plans of funding grammar schools £50 million for further expansion, but based from the results of the CIF; it appears that the government has been using the fund for similar means.

“The Conservative government’s obsession with grammar schools, despite the now overwhelming evidence that selective schools damage the education of most children and add no real benefit even to those who go to them, suggests that they care more about the minority of children who pass the 11-plus than the majority attending comprehensive schools,” Benn concluded.
