Panel explores body image, eating disorders

first_imgStudents gathered in the Student Center on Wednesday night to hear panelists discuss struggles with body image as part of Love Your Body Week at Saint Mary’s.Junior Sam Moorhead, Social Concerns Committee chair for the Student Government Association, said the idea of having a panel present at Love Your Body Week was inspired by the positive results of a panel at Support a Belle, Love a Belle week in the fall.“Essentially it is to promote dialogue on issues that are so seldom talked about,” Moorhead said. “Throughout the school year we have one week where we focus on body related issues … [and it] is such an important issue that so many people struggle with but not many people talk about.”Junior Mackenzie Woods started the night by sharing her experience with anorexia. She named her eating disorder “Ed” and said that Ed chose her.“Ed is the voice that lives inside me, pushing me to embody perfection in its most extreme form,” Woods said. “You could say I was destined to develop an eating disorder from early on. The eating disorder was never something that I chose. Quite the contrary, in fact, Ed chose me as one of his victims.”Woods said she was determined to be the best anorexic. But eventually she made the choice of life over death and a healthy life over Ed. Woods recovered five years ago and has stayed healthy with the help of family, friends and her faith. Ed was a gift, Woods said.“It may seem strange that anyone would want to toy with death and experience such loss and pain,” she said. “However, in my mind Ed was a gift.“He was much less about food and the desire to be thin and much more about my emotional, spiritual, mental and creative hunger. He was a disguised opportunity for me to learn more about myself and the inner strength I never knew I had.”Woods is in the process of creating a chapter of Project HEAL at Saint Mary’s. HEAL stands for Help to Eat, Accept and Live. Project HEAL sponsors a scholarship program for people who cannot afford treatment.“I’m hoping to raise awareness of eating disorders on campus,” Woods said. “I’m hoping to really get people talking about them because it’s often taboo and under the rug.”Junior Abby Roggemann shared her emotional and ongoing battle with anorexia. Roggemann said her best friend ¾ her eating disorder ¾ became her worst enemy.“Once I realized how good I was at starving myself, it got out of control quickly,” she said. “I never thought an eating disorder could happen to me, but it can happen to anyone.“I was counting every single calorie that entered my body. It felt so good that I just couldn’t stop. It was a rude awakening when I had to admit to myself that I had a problem. I couldn’t go any longer and was scared for my future.”Roggemann said the road to recovery is a continuous journey. There is no fast fix or cure-all for an eating disorder.“I want to give you an ending with rainbows and unicorns and glitter but it’s my story, its not over yet and it wont be for a really long a time,” Roggemann said. “I’m still not really sure what the term recovery means.“Honestly I’m not recovered, but I hope my constant work will help my disordered thoughts and behaviors grow farther and fewer. There is no fast fix or cure-all for an eating disorder.”Sophomore Bridget Dedelow, who has cerebral palsy, discussed her body image issues as well. Dedelow said she noticed something was “off” with her when she was six years old.“People everyday compare themselves to models and actresses and in high school I did the same,” Dedelow said. “But when I looked in the mirror I didn’t see anything. I didn’t see confidence, I didn’t see a good body image, I basically saw nothing.“And I was basically angrier at that time. Angry for having something this thing that I couldn’t really control, angry for being awkward around other people, angry for other people that were being constantly reminded that they were normal and I wasn’t and angry at the scars that were on my body. “Dedelow said it was not until she came to Saint Mary’s that she began working on her own body image. She said her story is still ongoing with the help of supportive friends and family.“I learned to talk about my feelings instead of hiding them,” Dedelow said. “My favorite Beatles quote is ‘Tomorrow may rain but follow the sun.’”Moorhead said the event was great because she was able to hear personal Saint Mary’s stories.“It was obviously such a great experience for the people here and them because it takes so much courage and I’m so proud of them for doing it,” Moorhead said.A mass in Le Mans followed the panel. The chosen passages related to God’s image and body image in some way.“We have not had a mass in the past, but being a Catholic women’s college we thought we should add faith to it and the week,” Moorhead said. “We decided to have that faith component because a lot of people rely on faith in order to get them through their struggles so we thought this was a great opportunity to do that.”Tags: anorexia, Love Your Body, Love Your Body Week, Project HEAL, saint mary’s, SMClast_img read more

Inside The App Stores: Apple, Android & The Hottest App You’ve Never Heard Of

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement How To Make $$$ Developing AppsFor now, Distimo’s report suggests this: The odds of striking it rich as a mobile app developer are tiny, and the safest bet is to design either a game or a productivity app for the iPhone. There’s also one other thing to consider, that Distimo doesn’t: Draw Something shot to fame, as customers downloaded it 50 million times in 50 days. But the dropoff was almost as sharp. Today, it’s down to about 2 million monthly users. And Line Pop’s Google Play page shows the same sharp downward trend. App fame is fleeting, and users are always on to the next big thing. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … What app broke through to become one of the most popular in 2012? If you live outside Asia, chances are you’ve never heard of it: Naver’s Line Pop, a matching game that an analyst report this week estimated at 1.75 million downloads in just over 72 hours.Line Pop’s success overshadowed the success of Draw Something, 2012’s other most-talked about app. Draw Something reached 1 million users in 9 days early in 2012, and was instrumental in convincing Zynga to spend $180 million to acquire developer Omgpop.The report this week by Distimo attempted the chart the success of apps residing on the two most popular platforms: Google’s Android app store, Google Play, and Apple’s iOS App Store. Unfortunately, the year-end look didn’t touch on smaller, less popular app platforms such as RIM’s BlackBerry Store or Amazon’s own powerful rival to Google Play. (Although one can dismiss BlackBerry’s waning influence, and the nascent Windows Phone/Windows 8 stores, it would have been interesting to see how Amazon influenced Google Play, and especially how its store affected downloads and revenue for the Android platform.)But the report does lay out an interesting smorgasbord of data that developers should digest over the holidays, including one worrying trend: Fewer apps are generating more revenue, meaning that the bulk of app store revenues are consolidating within fewer and fewer apps. That’s great news if you have one of the few hits, but a real challenge for everyone else.The report indicates that both Google Play and Apple’s iOS are growing strongly, though Apple’s iOS platform still generates more revenue. Distimo also showed that some countries heavily skew either toward or away from tablets.Google Play Still Trails AppleBoth Apple’s App Store and Google Play now have about the same number of apps, roughly 700,000, but Android smartphone penetration is much higher: 52.5% of all U.S. smartphones, according to comScore, versus 34.3% for Apple.Distimo’s report also shows that daily revenues from Google Play are on the rise, increasing 43% over the last four months, an impressive figure for any company. During the same period, Apple’s App Store grew only 21%. But Apple’s app-store revenues started from a much stronger base; while the Distimo report doesn’t mention specific numbers, Apple claimed in January that revenue from the App Store and its iBookstore business hit $2.03 billion. Since January, Apple’s app store revenues alone grew 51%, Distimo said.On a typical day in November 2012,  Apple App Store revenue exceeded $15 million, Distimo found, while in Google Play the revenues were just below $3.5 million, measured across 20 of the largest countries in both app stores. The U.S., Japan, the UK and Australia generated the most app revenue.The implication is clear: although Apple’s market share is smaller than Android’s, app developers still make more money developing for the iOS platform. Hit-Driven App Consolidation That doesn’t mean that app developers will find guaranteed success in any one store, however. Distimo found that just seven hit applications earned 10% of the revenues in November 2012 in the Apple App Store for iPhone, which is a “significantly lower number of applications than in January 2012.” With the iPad, just six apps were responsible for 10% of the revenues, while in Google Play only four apps generated 10% of the revenue. Clearly, the window to make it big is shrinking – even as the rewards for do so continue to grow.Before (and presumably after) Apple launched its free iOS Maps service, navigation apps pulled in an average of $11.56 apiece on the iPad, and $7.25 on the iPhone, the most revenue per app any category made. On the iPad, business and productivity apps followed closely behind, while the same categories clustered together on the iPhone, with news and travel apps in the mix. Overall, however, games were the clear winner, sucking up a third of the downloads and even more of the revenue across both Google Play and iOS combined. The second-place category, widgets, was far behind at 8%. markhachman Related Posts center_img Tags:#Apple#apps#Google#iOS 6 Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Interestingly, Distimo found that the average price for an app was higher on Google Play than on iPhone-specific apps. And how did developers make money? Looking at the Apple app store alone, Distimo found that in-app revenue grew from 53% to 69% from January to November. The exceptions were developers that could convince buyers to purchase apps up front: games, for example, like “Minecraft: Pocket Edition.” Apple, the most popular publisher of apps on the iOS app store by download, chose this route with apps like GarageBand. Russia Loves Tablets, Japan Doesn’tPerhaps reinforcing the stereotype that the Japanese prefer small, dainty objects, Distimo’s geographic breakdown of app purchases provides new insight on how various country view tablet apps. The country with the highest tablet proclivity is Russia, where 46% of all iOS downloads were on the iPad, followed by The Netherlands and Finland with 38% and 35%, respectively. Japan is the country with the least tablet proclivity, as only 7% of all iOS downloads are iPad apps, Distimo wrote. But the firm also ranked Japan second in terms of the growth seen in purchasing iPad apps, at 112% over the last four months. Some 24% of the apps Americans purchased were for the iPhone, versus the iPad, Distimo found.

In the long-run, quality will always win over. You need to make sure that your SEO strategy is multi-dimensional and that you aren’t just doing only link building, only keyword optimization or only content creation. – While you can’t really influence your users to create a website or blog and link to you, there are some other niche bloggers who can stumble upon the website and might do concept or product reviews. You can also submit the items for sale on your website to comparison shopping sites (while most would be ‘nofollow’ links, you get the benefit of more distribution!). @dharmesh – Most people are not patient and it is uncertain where you will be ranked when enough time has elapsed for the rankings to readjust on a more secure basis. You could be chasing a carrot on a stick forever without increasing your rank significantly (there is the possibility your ranking will drop too). Another issue is that you might be pursuing a vertical SEO strategy that might not work and you won’t know that for a few weeks or a few months, at which point your competitors will have increased their rankings or will have improved the ‘barrier to entry’ for the top rankings.
