The rise of Acuff-Rose Publishing is closely associated with and is considered as one of the drivers for positioning Nashville as one of the country music centers in America; and where country performers and song writers sought to establish themselves in the world of music, “Acuff-Rose readily gave Nashville an outlet for the fledging country songwriters.The new musical enterprise was able to establish close ties with ASCAP and BMI studios, which turned country music into the source of enormous profits (Pecknold, 2007).The popularity of country music and country songwriters depended on the way Acuff-Rose managed to collect and distribute the most promising pieces of country singing.Later during the 1950s, the bluesy and gutsy style of mu...

This development signaled a “changing of the guard” and the ASCAP found that the change was ultimately not in their favor (Hood-Ancklewicz 3).The great professor and historian, Lord Acton, is quoted as saying, “power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”.On the other end of the spectrum is the American government who continues to support censorship and participate in the creation of scapegoats when suitable to the larger political agenda.Overall, Alan Freed was a trendsetter who was perhaps “before his time” and thereby was punished accordingly for going against the grain.While the concept of payola presents an ethical flaw in the system it is nonetheless a flaw that is as inherent to the music industry as is manipulation to t...

“Ethnic Differences in BMI and Disease Risk.” .In a pilot study conducted with 26 female medical students in Singapore, 58% reported feeling moderately or very fat, despite a mean Body Mass Index (BMI) of 18.7.In comparison, Singapore has more censorship in the media.Asians have a smaller body structure and framework thus comparing to American, there’s a difference between the Body Mass Index (BMI).For Asians, a BMI that is 24 or higher is considered overweightand obesity, a BMI of 28 or higher (“Ethnic”).

While the serving sizes at fast food restaurants in America seem to be larger in comparison to other countries, this does not mean the restaurants are the only cause for America’s increases in obesity cases.To determine the amount of fat stored in a person’s body, a Body Mass Index (BMI) number is calculated.(CDC, About BMI for Adults, 2009) The BMI calculations are only one small part in determining a person’s health risks in relation to weight issues.One example of the effect “supersizing” has had on the typical caloric intake was the comparison of soft drink sizes served at a McDonald’s in the United States versus those sold at McDonald’s in the United Kingdom.The formula for determining a person’s BMI is the weight (in pounds) divide...

In conclusion, the results of this particular study show that sedentary life can actually contribute to overweight and obesity, since BMI is affected almost proportionally by the hours of inactivity.These factors influencing BMI were not taken under consideration in this study.As mentioned previously the BMI can be also used as a health index since from clinical studies it becomes clear that there is some correlation between the BMI and mortality.Also, the BMI of people being sedentary and utilising technology devices in their everyday life is an overweight range and has increased risks for developing some kind of disease, while the BMI of the people not having a sedentary lifestyle is in the normal range and definitely has fewer chances...

According to the World Health Organization, if the BMI is in the range of 25-29, a person is overweight and if the BMI is 30 and above, the person is considered to be obese.Although BMI does not actually “measure” percentage of body fat, it is a useful tool to estimate a healthy body weight based on height.f) One of the scientific ways of understanding obesity is by calculating the body mass index (BMI).BMI “number” will inform one if one is underweight, of normal weight, overweight, or obese.Recent studies show that electrical impedance is not superior to BMI as a predictor of overall adiposity (Willett, et al., 2006) and in clinical samples, Ensrud and colleagues (1994) found the relationship between BMI and functioning to be stronger ...

In conclusion, this study has shown that for girls living in urban conditions, BMI can be modeled by the sinusoidal and logistic mathematical functions.Hopefully thanks to the work done in this report, parents will be able to track whether their children are above or below the median BMI for their age, and predict how much their BMI is likely to change in the following year using the functions derived in the report.Using the same assumption that human growth is related to the measurable value of BMI, that value is off because a human stops growing at ≈ 20 years of age and that value is more than a full unit higher than the BMI value at age 20 (21.65) based on the data.The lowest y-value on the scatter plot is the data point at 5 years (1...

In another longitudinal study, which followed a sample of 155 healthy boys and girls from 2 to 20 years of age, standardised BMI score of boys (standard deviation of BMI using age and gender specific BMI percentile curve) was correlated to BMI of the mother and father.BMI, sum of skinfold thickness, and waist circumference, but not BMI z score, have been frequently used in obesity research.For girls, BMI of the father was significantly associated with standardised BMI score of the child, but BMI of the mother was only significantly related to standardised BMI score of the child at age 8 or older (Magarey, Daniels, Boulton, & Cockington 2003).(2007) Adiposity in adolescents: change in actual BMI works better than change in BMI z score...

Obesity in the Workplace: Development of a conceptual framework.Using a dynamic multi-stage model of the relationship between BMI and risk for five diseases strongly linked to weight status, (Thompson et al) generated associated medical care costs for each stage of the model.Prhizi, S, Pasupathy, K, Steege, Linsey M. (2012).Because different methodologies and data sources were used, comparison between the different studies is somewhat difficult.They found overweight (BMI 27.5) to increase expected lifetime medical care costs for the five diseases studied by almost 20% compared to the healthy-weight group (BMI 22.5).

New York Post .On the other hand, an obese individual will have a BMI more than 30.In reference to the BMI, a normal individual will have a BMI ranging from 18.5 to 24.9.The difference between the two can be generated based on the Body Mass Index (BMI) which is a comparison of individual body weight to height status.In reference to the BMI it is having a BMI more than 30.5 which in most cases imply that the individual is having a body weight at least 30 percent of their ideal weight for a given height.

Furthermore, all 4 of these patients had indirect inguinal hernia, lower BMI and grade 3 varicocele.There are 3 possible reasons for this phenomenon: the higher number of dissection maneuvers performed over the spermatic cord during surgery, the higher grade of varicocele and the lower BMI (which increases the chance of the nutcracker phenomenon, increases hydro- static pressure in the scrotum, and decreases fat tissue in the spermatic cord).15,16 However, the actual etiology needs further evaluation.All 3 patients with hydrocele after surgery had indirect inguinal hernia, grade 3 varicocele and lower BMI (mean, 21.8 22.9).At the same time, lower BMI could have resulted in poor relief of the nutcracker phenomenon, which led to progressi...

The BMI categories assessed were underweight, normal weight, overweight and obese.The researchers hypothesized that intervention group participants would be able to maintain their kilocalorie(kcal) expenditure from baseline to 6 months as compared with the kcal expenditure of the usual care comparison group.Findings showed a negative relationship between physical activity and excess weight, no relationship between social activity and BMI, and a positive relationship between excess weight and sedentary activities.This provides a strong case for the benefits of physical activity in older adults and indicates that the positive effects are not only limited to a physical dimension but that increasing physical activity can also enhance the qu...
