Summer isn't here yet and it's 98 degrees outside! As crazy as this weather is I know it's here to stay at least for a couple of months! So if you can't beat it then have fun. However, there are precautions to take in crazy HOT weather such as this. Here are a few tips!:
    • Drink plenty of fluids such as water and fruit juices to prevent dehydration -- be aware that alcohol can impair the body's sweat mechanism, as can fairly common medications such as antihistamines and diuretics
    • Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, and light-colored clothes
    • Protect yourself from direct sunlight by staying in the shade or by wearing sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses
    • NEVER leave pets or young children in a car, even with the windows cracked
    • Check on elderly relatives or neighbors at least daily
    • Take it easy when outdoors. Athletes and people who work outdoors should, if possible, take short breaks if they feel fatigued. Schedule physical activity during the morning or evening when it is cooler
I know we all LOVE to hit the pools, beaches,and lakes. I know I do and I love to tan.BUT DON'T OVERDUE IT! I use tanning oil that has SPF. MY FAVORITE IS BANANA BOAT TANNING OIL WITH SPF 15!
Any products with SPF is great for protecting the skin against the sun's harmful rays in the summer and can also be used all year round. Tanning too much can cause skin cancer,in some cases, wrinkles, spots, etc. So take proper care of your skin so it can look healthy and fresh.

SO BERKELEY STUDENTS! We have 2 WEEKS left before this quarter ends! I,for one,am beyond excited because yours truly has a BIRTHDAY coming up! =D So time to relax and party with friends and family! Since it's beautiful weather, that means everyone will be out and about enjoying it.But with all this, please be careful to not DRINK AND DRIVE.
With 4th of July and different parades coming up, there's going to be A LOT of people drinking more than they should.So please be careful when you're driving,don't drink and drive and be careful with other drunk drivers on the road. ALSO, DON'T FORGET TO BUCKLE UP! POLICE OFFICERS ARE GIVING OUT A LOT OF TICKETS FOR NOT USING SEAT BELTS.SO IT'S BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY.

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one that is greatly enjoying this HOT weather that came out of nowhere! I'm very sure that by the end of this summer we're all going to be EXTREMELY TAN, I'm talking Jersey Shore style! Anyways, so since my last blog,many things have happend! For instance, MAY 21st CAME AND WENT AND WE'RE ALL ALIVE AND WELL, SO LET THIS BE A LESSON FOR ALL YOU 2012 "OH MY GOSH THE WORLD IS GOING TO END" PEOPLE! Relax and breathe! You'll be fine=)  

So on this edition of "SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?" I would like to talk about an article I read today on that really got me very upset.I thought we lived in a country that congratulated its citizens on great heroic deeds. The following piece is from

"The controversy in the case stems from a May 19, 2009, incident in which Parker and another young man burst into Reliable Discount Pharmacy in Oklahoma City. The men, armed and wearing ski masks, allegedly ordered two female employees working behind the counter to give them money and drugs. Instead, the two women ran to the back of the store.
The men then allegedly pointed their guns at Ersland. The pharmacist drew his own weapon, a small semiautomatic handgun he had in his pocket, and fired at Parker, striking the youth in the head. Surveillance video from inside the store captured Parker’s fall to the ground as Ersland chased his accomplice from the store."
Mr. Ersland not only saved his life but the lives of 2 other women! And now he's in prison for defending his life against two criminals who were armed?! I'm a Criminal Justice major and I'll be the first to say THAT OUR CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM SOME TIMES DOES NOT ACCOMPLISH WHAT IT IS SET OUT TO DO! It has it's faults and failures such as in this story where an innocent man is behind bars! If you want to support Jerome than log onto Facebook and go onto the page titled "Jerome Ersland Should Not Have Been Found Guilty" and support this man! THIS IS A GREAT INJUSTICE!
