When America’s founding fathers were crafting the United States Constitution, one of their biggest priorities was to ensure that all women had access to free tampons at all times. Oh wait, no, that’s actually a vile feminist contingent at the University of Florida (UF) that recently held a campus-wide “bleed-in” to demand access to free female hygiene products.
According to reports, dozens of feminists at UF decided to paint fake blood on their crotches as part of an “awareness” campaign to demand more free access to menstrual products that, believe it or not, are already offered free of charge at UF.
The group “Gatters Matter, Period.” recently launched a petition asking the student council, which serves both male and female students, to use student funds from both sexes to purchase more tampons for female bathrooms. When the student council denied this on the basis that catering to one gender over another wasn’t fair or cost-effective, Gatters Matter, Period. threw a hissy fit and launched an even more aggressive campaign.
Even though bags containing copious amounts of tampons and other menstrual products are already offered for free at UF, Gatters Matter, Period. apparently prefers not to have to cross the campus to get them from one single location. Its members are adamant about having tampons available everywhere, such as in all of the bathrooms, in baskets at the entryways to all classrooms, and presumably on the cafeteria buffet as well.
A new study revealed that vitamin E — in particular tocotrienol — could improve the bone density of postmenopausal women. The study was carried out by a group of scientists from the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and the Georgia State University who assessed the benefit of vitamin E to bone health.
In the study, 89 postmenopausal women with osteopenia, a condition wherein bone mineral density is lower than normal, took part and were randomly divided into three groups. A placebo group was given 430 milligrams (mg) olive oil per day, while a low tocotrienol group had 430 mg of 70 percent pure tocotrienol per day. Finally, a high tocotrienol group received 860 mg of 70 percent pure tocotrienol per day. The participants were given soft gel capsules of their assigned group to be taken every day for 12 weeks.
It was revealed that the supplementation of tocotrienol for 12 weeks reduced bone resorption and enhanced bone turnover rate by suppressing bone remodeling regulators in postmenopausal women with osteopenia.
Aside from being a relaxing hobby, fishing can also help you survive when you’re trapped in the wild. If you know how to catch, cook, and preserve fish, you can fend for yourself when disaster strikes. (h/t to DoomsdayMoose.com)
How to fish
Before you fish, you will need to make a survival rod and lure. While this sounds daunting, practice making your own rod so you get used to the process:
Pick a tree branch that is a least seven inches long. The widest end of the branch should be the size of your thumb.
Break the branch until it is the right length, then cut away all side branches.
Bend the tip to check its strength. It’s fine if it breaks, this just means the tip is strong.
Look for green vines, which you will use as your fishing line. They should be at least 15 feet long. Tie several vines together with a strong knot.
Wrap the line around the branch a few times. This should give you enough time to grab the vine if the branch breaks while you’re fishing.
Using a strong knot, tie the vine to the end of the stick.
Find a small V-shaped stick. Carve the ends until they’re sharp. Tie this hook to your vine.
Look for live bait like earthworms or crickets.
You can also go old school and try hand fishing. This way of fishing is primitive, and you need to stand in shallow waters then use all of your strength to catch some fish. (Related: Camping: A great way to practice how to live after SHTF)
