Finding Nude Models: Approaching Potential Models In Public

Posted: August 13th, 2015 by

By Michael Flanders

Most erotic photographers find models in one of two ways: going through an agency that specializes in adult talent or using advertising to find potentially interested models. However, there is another method that can also be used. In fact, many photographers find this method to be not only the most interesting, but the most lucrative as well.

The process involves approaching women in public (at the mall, at the beach, walking down the street, etc.) and inquiring about their interest in modeling nude. Depending on your individual personality, this may sound exciting and fun or it may sound like the hardest and most difficult thing in the world. However, even if you feel a bit apprehensive, there are good reasons why you might want to give this method a try.

In my ebook, MONEY SHOTS!, I provide the reader with a wide variety of simple and specific techniques to use when approaching potential models in public (the book is available at

When you advertise for models, you will generally get calls from women who have already given at least some thought to the possibility of modeling. This also applies when you search for models through agencies or talent websites. What all these women will have in common is, at the very least, they have given some thought to modeling nude.

But what about all the other women out there in the world? What about the huge percentage who have never even thought about the possibility? Without question, there are many women who have said to themselves, ‘Modeling nude might be fun and sexy, but I don’t know the first thing about how to go about it.’

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not implying that every woman you see on the street has a secret desire to be a model. However, there are millions (and millions) of women around the world who would be intrigued by the idea of modeling nude if the opportunity were to directly present itself.

For photographers looking to make money from their work, images of these types of women can be very lucrative. The reason for this is simple: Publications and websites that are in the market for nude photography are constantly looking for new faces. These outlets prefer not to repeatedly feature the same models.

The market has a hunger for models who haven’t been seen before (or have been seen very little). Consequently, if you can find women who have never modeled before, you will be in a significantly better position when it comes to selling your work.

In fact, this is a major reason why you don’t have to live in a big city to be successful in the erotic photography business. Simply because a particular area may not have modeling agencies that specialize in adult talent doesn’t mean that there aren’t many potential models to work with. Granted, you may have to look a little harder for them. However, when you do find a new model, chances are good that her pictures will be worth more than those of a model who has already been repeatedly seen.

I hope I’ve been able to convince you to give this particular model-finding method a try. In a later article I’ll be discussing specific techniques you can use to make the process of approaching women in public as simple, comfortable, and productive as possible.

Believe me, it’s not as difficult as it may seem.

Facebook hired PR firm to discredit Google, reveals leaked correspondence

Posted: August 12th, 2015 by

Thursday, May 12, 2011 

Facebook hired a public relations firm to systematically discredit Google by paying two journalists to plant negative pieces in U.S. newspapers, leaked correspondence discloses. The new revelations are likely to increase tension between the two companies, which are already fierce rivals.

The social network has confirmed the validity of the leaked emails, seen by Wikinews, which suggest executives at the social networking giant hired Burson-Marsteller, a high profile PR and communications firm, to discredit Social Circle, a rival website run by Google. Burson-Marsteller then recruited two journalists—Jim Goldman and John Mercurio—to push editors at The Washington Post and USA Today to publish editorials criticising Social Circle over its privacy settings. The story was exposed after Burson-Marsteller approached a blogger to publish the propaganda, but the blogger posted the correspondence online.

Burson-Marsteller has been forced to apologize for taking on Facebook as a client, admitting the orders to discredit Google violated company policy. “The assignment on those terms should have been declined,” a spokesperson said. The revelations are likely to be incredibly damaging for the firm, who have represented a number of controversial clients in the past. Facebook, however, said the allegations against Google were valid, insisting there were genuine privacy concerns with Social Circle. Google has declined to comment on the issue.

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

Posted: August 12th, 2015 by

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), also known as the UN Refugee Agency, is a United Nations agency mandated to protect and support refugees at the request of a government or the UN itself and assists in their voluntary repatriation, local integration or resettlement to a third country. Its headquarters are in Geneva, Switzerland and is a member of the United Nations Development Group.[1] The UNHCR has won two Nobel Peace Prizes, once in 1954 and again in 1981.[2]

Following the demise of the League of Nations and the formation of the United Nations the international community was acutely aware of the refugee crisis following the end of World War II. In 1947, the International Refugee Organization (IRO) was founded by the United Nations.[3] The IRO was the first international agency to deal comprehensively with all aspects pertaining to refugees’ lives. Preceding this was the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration, which was established in 1944 to address the millions of people displaced across Europe as a result of World War II.[3]

In the late 1940s, the IRO fell out of favor, but the UN agreed that a body was required to oversee global refugee issues. Despite many heated debates in the General Assembly, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was founded as a subsidiary organ of the General Assembly by Resolution 319 (IV) of the United Nations General Assembly of December 1949. However, the organization was only intended to operate for 3 years, from January 1951, due to the disagreement of many UN member states over the implications of a permanent body.[3]

UNHCR’s mandate was originally set out in its statute, annexed to resolution 428 (V) of the United Nations General Assembly of 1950. This mandate has been subsequently broadened by numerous resolutions of the General Assembly and its Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).[3] According to UNHCR,

[its] mandate is to provide, on a non-political and humanitarian basis, international protection to refugees and to seek permanent solutions for them.[3]

Soon after the signing of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, it became clear that refugees were not solely restricted to Europe. In 1956, UNHCR was involved in coordinating the response to the uprising in Hungary. Just a year later, UNHCR was tasked with dealing with Chinese refugees in Hong Kong, while also responding Algerian refugees who had fled to Morocco and Tunisia in the wake of Algeria’s war for independence. The responses marked the beginning of a wider, global mandate in refugee protection and humanitarian assistance.[3]

Decolonization in the 1960s triggered large refugee movements in Africa, creating a massive challenge that would transform UNHCR; unlike the refugee crises in Europe, there were no durable solutions in Africa and many refugees who fled one country only found instability in their new country of asylum. By the end of the decade, two-thirds of UNHCR’s budget was focused on operations in Africa and in just one decade, the organization’s focus had shifted from an almost exclusive focus on Europe.[3]

In the 1970s, UNHCR refugee operations continued to spread around the globe, with the mass exodus of East Pakistanis to India shortly before the birth of Bangladesh. Adding to the woes in Asia was the Vietnam war, with millions fleeing the war-torn country.[3]

The 1980s saw new challenges for UNHCR, with many member states unwilling to resettle refugees due to the sharp rise in refugee numbers over the 1970s. Often, these refugees were not fleeing wars between states, but inter-ethnic conflict in newly independent states. The targeting of civilians as military strategy added to the displacement in many nations, so even ‘minor’ conflicts could result in a large number of displaced persons. Whether in Asia, Central America or Africa, these conflicts, fueled by superpower rivalry and aggravated by socio-economic problems within the concerned countries, durable solutions continued to prove a massive challenge for the UNHCR. As a result, the UNHCR became more heavily involved with assistance programs within refugee camps, often located in hostile environments.[3]

The end of the Cold War marked continued inter-ethnic conflict and contributed heavily to refugee flight. In addition, humanitarian intervention by multinational forces became more frequent and the media began to play a big role, particularly in the lead up to the 1999 NATO mission in Yugoslavia, while by contrast, the 1994 Rwandan Genocide had little attention. The genocide in Rwanda caused a massive refugee crisis, again highlighting the difficulties for UNHCR to uphold its mandate, and the UNHCR continued to battle against restrictive asylum policies in so called ‘rich’ nations.[3]

UNHCR was established on 14 December 1950[4] and succeeded the earlier United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration. The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another state, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country.

UNHCR’s mandate has gradually been expanded to include protecting and providing humanitarian assistance to whom it describes as other persons “of concern,” including internally displaced persons (IDPs) who would fit the legal definition of a refugee under the 1951 United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and 1967 Protocol, the 1969 Organization for African Unity Convention, or some other treaty if they left their country, but who presently remain in their country of origin. UNHCR presently has major missions in Lebanon, South Sudan, Chad/Darfur, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Afghanistan as well as Kenya to assist and provide services to IDPs and refugees.

To achieve its mandate, the UNHCR engaged in activities both in the countries of interest and in countries with donors. For example, the UNHCR hosts expert roundtables to discuss issues of concern to the international refugee community. An example of one such roundtable was the Global Expert Roundtable on Temporary Protection, held in July 2013, who’s participants including Kathleen Newland, Director of the Migration Policy Institute, Andrew Schoenholtz, Professor at Georgetown University Law Center, and Alice M. Nah of the Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network.[5]

Most Palestinian refugees – those in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan – do not come within the responsibility of the UNHCR, but instead come under an older body, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). The UNRWA has a much broader definition of “refugee” than the UNHCR, including not only refugees themselves but their descendants in perpetuity; however, it only covers refugees stemming from the 1948 and 1967 Arab-Israeli wars. Other Palestinian refugees outside of UNRWA’s area of operations do fall under UNHCR’s mandate, if they meet the UNHCR’s more limited definition of refugee.

Several new programs have recently been introduced to support and to heighten awareness of the issues faced by refugees around the world. These two new programs are a product of the benchmarks set out by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.

Since 1954, the UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award has been annually awarded to a person or an organization in recognition of outstanding service to the cause of refugees, displaced or stateless people.

The UNHCR itself was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1954 and 1981.

As of 1 January 2007, UNHCR reported a total of 21 018 589 individuals falling under its mandate.

As of April 2008, the UNHCR employed a staff of 6,351 people in 117 countries.[6]

The post of High Commissioner has been held by:[7]

Prior to the establishment of UNHCR, Fridtjof Nansen was the League of Nations High Commissioner of the Nansen International Office for Refugees, from 1922.

After 10 years serving as a Goodwill Ambassador, Angelina Jolie was promoted in 2012 to Special Envoy to the High Commissioner. In this role she represents the UNHCR and High Commissioner António Guterres at the diplomatic level and works to facilitate long-term solutions for people displaced by large-scale crises, such as Afghanistan and Somalia. “This is an exceptional position reflecting an exceptional role she has played for us,” said a UNHCR spokesman.

UNHCR is also represented by a number of UNHCR Goodwill Ambassadors, who at present are:

FEMA accused of misusing trained disaster workers as public-relations workers

Posted: August 11th, 2015 by

Monday, September 12, 2005 

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is being criticized for misallocation of personnel in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. FEMA representatives said they requested volunteers from fire departments around the U.S., to handle its community relations campaign. However, a document FEMA sent to local fire departments asked for firefighters with very specific skills and who were capable of working in “austere conditions”. Fire departments around the nation responded by sending crews to the FEMA staging ground in Atlanta. Some of these crews were unaware that they were only going to be used for public relations work. Others, however, merely hoped that FEMA would allocate them to rescue and damage control operations once it saw their qualifications.

The firefighter’s objections are particularly poignant as one of FEMA public relations training seminars coincided with New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin plea for firefighters on national television, to relieve his own exhausted crews. It is unclear if FEMA’s request for firefighters prevented any municipalities from responding to Mayor Nagin’s request.

Some firefighters have objected to their use as FEMA public relations officers because their municipalities must bear the cost of their salaries, as well as endure reduced firefighting capacity. FEMA has stated that it sought to use firefighters to avoid background checks required of federal employees.

Firefighters began receiving their assignments Monday, September 5th. Among these was a crew of 50 assigned to tour the devastated areas with President Bush and the press.

Customizing Your Home Gym Exercise Routine

Posted: August 5th, 2015 by

Read An Opinion On:

By David Faulkner

Different strokes for different folks. How true is that in so many aspects of life? One of those aspects is your home gym exercise routine and the exercise equipment you use. If you are exploring home gym exercise, then obviously you have already made the leap into the world of fit for life. On the other hand, you may already be seasoned exercise addict who has decided to give up your health club membership. For the apprentice, several areas should be investigated and considered.

If you are a beginner, your current physical shape is the number one consideration and your home gym exercise sessions should be designed around that important factor. If you have been a long-term couch potato, you will have to start out at a slow and easy pace and increase intensity by small increments. Goals and expectations are another issue. For the novice, shooting for the stars too quickly may create major disappointment. Starting small may be difficult to do, but very necessary. Time also becomes part of the dynamics of carrying out your home gym exercise plan. How much do you have to invest in this venture? Remember, this will not be a temporary change in your life it will be a permanent lifestyle change so your entire schedule should be adjusted accordingly.

For the exercise junkie, devising the perfect home gym exercise plan should be relatively easy. Your biggest problem will be avoiding boredom! Being innovative in your planning is vital to the overall success of your routine. Relying on the run of the mill, everyday work out you did at the gym may not be as satisfying at home. A change of pace will definitely be in order for your home gym exercise sessions.

Location, location, location. Where have you heard that before? It is typically associated with real estate; however, it certainly can apply in regards to your home gym exercise. A separate work out room is the ideal situation, except that a lot of us do not have the extra room to do that. So improvise, be inventive! Map out an area in the house where you will be the most comfortable and where you will gain the most from the work out. Create a place in your home where you will want to work out because you enjoy it and not because it is just another chore that you have to do.

In home gym exercises you control your exercises by yourself and there is no trainer unless you hire one. You should be full aware of what type of exercises are suitable for you and when and how they are to be done.It is advisable though to be carefull about the excercises, and a professional guidance should be sought to conduct right kind of excercises. Training videos or the manuals can be of great help in this regard. This should be done to avoid any possible injury to the body and to attain best results from the equipments.

Even though you workout at home by yourselves, but you should exercise according to your body requirements. You need to hold yourself accountable to your body. You should frame time for your activities.

Historic gym the site of Benet Academy, Illinois victory over Oswego

Posted: August 4th, 2015 by

Monday, January 18, 2010 

The Benet Academy Redwings boys basketball team defeated the Oswego High School Panthers 40–34 Saturday night at Benet’s historic Alumni Gym. 

Located at Lisle, Illinois, United States, the gymnasium is home to Benet’s winning streak of 102 consecutive home games. The statewide record lasted from November 26, 1975 until January 24, 1987, when Naperville North High School defeated the Redwings 47–46. Benet also achieved 96 consecutive victories in the Western Suburban Catholic Conference at that time. 

The school continued to use the facility, colloquially referred to as the “Old Gym” or the “Small Gym”, until the end of the 1994 season, when a newer athletic center was built on campus. It wasn’t until the late 1990’s when then-coach Marty Gaughan decided to play one game per year in the Alumni Gym to remind the school of its history. “There is just an electricity, and you feel it when you are in there,” said Gaughan, who coached the team from the 1989–1990 season to the 2007–2008 season. 

This tradition continued until the 2006–2007 season, when the Redwings played against long-time rival St. Francis High School. Renovations prevented the gym from being used for athletic events over the past two seasons. This game was Benet coach Gene Heidkamp’s first opportunity to coach in the older gym. “So much history and winning has taken place there, which makes it so special. It is something the entire school community is excited about,” said Heidkamp. 

Saturday’s game was played at the Alumni Gym at the request of Oswego assistant coach Jim Bagley. He wanted his son, senior forward Chris Bagley, to experience the same atmosphere he had as he played for Benet in the 1978–1979 season. Greg Kwiatkowski was also Jim Bagley’s teammate in Benet, and his son, Joe Kwiatkowski, was in the Panthers’ starting lineup as well. “Two of us who played at Benet together and now our son’s play on [Oswego] together and for them to have a chance to play where we played is going to be a great night and great experience,” said the senior Bagley. 

Alumni Gym apparently still had its charm in the second half for the Redwings, whose 15–17 score at halftime worsened into an 11-point deficit in the third quarter. Benet fell behind with a score of 21–29 at the start of the fourth quarter. From that point, the Redwings’ defense began to kick in. Oswego could make only 2 of its 13 field goals in the third quarter. Benet’s offense also gained momentum as center Frank Kaminsky scored all of his 9 points in the fourth quarter. A shot by senior Mike Runger brought the score to 31–31, and two consecutive driving layups by David Sobolewski gave Benet the lead that would last for the rest of the game. 

“We hit a dry spell there, but let’s give credit where credit is due. Defense wins games and they are the best defensive team we’ve faced all year,” said Oswego coach Kevin Schnable.

Benet’s Matt Parisi led his team with 15 points, and Sobolewski scored 12. Oswego’s Andrew Ziemnik also scored 12.

Athletes prepare for 2012 Summer Paralympics at the Paralympic Fitness Centre

Posted: August 3rd, 2015 by

Monday, August 27, 2012 

London, England — As Paralympians ready for the Games which are set to open later this week, they have access to a world class fitness center inside the Paralympic Village which is designed to maximise their pre-Game preparations.

According to volunteers staffing the center, instead of being a single large room, as in Beijing, the building has numerous rooms. It, along with the adjacent Village Services Centre, is designed to be converted into a school after the games conclude. Rooms have been structured as a gym, an auditorium, and science laboratories.

Gym equipment is supplied by Technogym, an Italian firm that has supplied gym equipment for the Olympics since 2000. Equipment has been provided not just for for the Fitness Centre, but for gyms at all the Olympic venues. The newest equipment is oriented toward maximum flexibility, allowing athletes to exercise the particular muscles that they most require for their sport.

In addition to the equipment, the Fitness Centre also provides instructors trained in the use of the equipment, the likes of which athletes from many countries have never seen before. There are also a number of instructors available to provide motivational training.

2008 TaiSPO: Interview with Ideal Bike Corporation and Gary Silva

Posted: August 3rd, 2015 by

Friday, March 28, 2008 

2008 Taipei International Cycle Show (Taipei Cycle) & Taipei International Sporting Goods Show (TaiSPO) not only did a best reunion with conjunctions of the launch of Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition and the concurrent cycling race of 2008 Tour de Taiwan but also provide opportunities and benefits for sporting goods, bicycle, and athlete sports industries to establish the basis of the sourcing center in Asia and notabilities on the international cycling race.

Although the Taipei cycle was split from the TaiSPO since 1988, but the trends of sporting good industry in Taiwan changed rapidly and multiply because of modern people’s lifestyles and habits. After the “TaiSPO Innovation Award” was established since 2005, the fitness and leisure industries became popular stars as several international buyers respected on lifestyle and health.

For example, some participants participated Taipei Cycle and TaiSPO with different product lines to do several marketing on bicycle and fitness equipments, this also echoed the “Three New Movements” proposed by Giant Co., Ltd. to make a simple bicycle with multiple applications and functions. As of those facts above, Wikinews Journalist Rico Shen interviewed Ideal Bike Corporation and Gary Silva, designer of “3G Steeper” to find out the possibilities on the optimizations between two elements, fitness and bicycle.

WikinewsWhat are the conceptions on the design of 3G Stepper?

Ideal: (As Gary Silva in demonstrations) We merged some basis on a elliptic and a simple fitness stepper, all designed for indoor fitness sporting. After this, the 3G Stepper became a functional bicycle with fitness and transportation. As its steppers were originally designed with lever theory and without bicycle seat, not only its speed was determined by its frequency when stepping, but also a user should use one’s physical strengths and torques (turnings) to balance the 3G Stepper and make a high intensive works on sporting.

WNAlthough the show schedule is concurrent for TaiSPO and Taipei Cycle, but why did you participate the innovation award for the 3G Stepper at TaiSPO?

Ideal: As of mentioned functions before, it can’t be fully thought as a bicycle because of fitness functionality.

WNSo you [Ideal Bike] consider to participate at TaiSPO with fitness factor?

Ideal: Traditionally, a bicycle often worked on a person’s lower-body, but we promoted “3G Stepper” by considering its fitness factor to hope everyone do a great full-body work with its coordination because a rider should use strengths on one’s upper-body to step on the stepper.

WNNot only fitness, but also artificial intelligence? And the other features?

Ideal: Originally, we [Ideal Bike] promoted the 3G Stepper mainly to the bicycle and sporting goods market in United States for leisure and fitness because of a DAMN bad lifestyle especially not sporting and bad beverage culture, which will cause several cardiovascular diseases. By the way, we also designer a smaller version for kids because we hope 3G Stepper is not just a “simple scooter” but a great invention. With this conception, we hope kids can be interested in this stepper and do several trainings on balance. In the past, several people were afraid of a bicycle because its dynamic balance should be done when riding. Last but not least, the 3G Stepper has no limitations on a rider’s heights and clothes.

WNWhat do you think about the concurrent schedule on TaiSPO and Taipei Cycle showcased in different venues?

Gary Silva: As you know, even though the bicycle (industry) is important, but we [Ideal Bike] chose the TaiSPO because of its nature on fitness. I hope that “a bicycle is not just a simple bicycle”.

WNMore than 20 years ago, the Taipei Cycle was ever included in TaiSPO, but after the maturity of export market on bicycle industry, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) finally split the bicycle (industry) from sporting goods (industry), and currently, it became the current condition as two trade shows showcased each other…

Gary: It sounds like a good idea and a proper split even though the industry natures of bicycle and sporting good are similar, and some buyers also want to gain some sourcing resources from those two (bicycle and sporting good) industries.

WNWhat do you think about a combination on TaiSPO, Taipei Cycle, and Tour de Taiwan?

Gary: Tour de Taiwan?

WNA cycling race.

Gary: Very nice, this combination will bring visitors on those two shows.

WNWill this combination provide benefits on sporting good, bicycle, and athlete sports industries?

Gary: Yes, surely. Because buyers and visitors from those three main activity can understand their each own backgrounds, and this optimization will improve notabilities on two shows and the cycling race.

Acupuncture And Fertility The Best Treatment For Infertility?

Posted: August 3rd, 2015 by

By Peter Wellington

Acupuncture has a long and glorious history in the Eastern world. Its been applied for centuries in the treatment of an endless variety of ailments, diseases and conditions. From painful periods to the common cold; from insomnia to hypertension; furthermore its application in fertility treatment is now widely accepted as a viable opportunity for both male and female.

Is Fertility and Infertility Treatment A Recent Use For Acupuncture?

Well, the simple answer is no, it isn’t. You see, Acupuncture treatments have been around for many thousands of years and acupuncture and have been partners since the beginning of the therapy – thousands of years, in fact.

Thankfully there are a great many couples that can stand and testify to the difference that acupuncture made to their lives. For these people, for one reason or the other, the traditional methods of treatment for infertility have proved unsuccessful.

You are right to think that many western medical professionals treat acupuncture for infertility with a degree of scepticism and using acupuncture for fertility is often the final straw for couples that have explored every other traditional avenue.

Can Acupuncture Really Make You More Fertile?

A person who is fit and healthy and has a personal sense of well-being and is in a good state of mind is more likely to be fertile than a person who is feeling poorly, sick and depressed. Worrying over ones fertility can make you even less fertile.

Not as such, but it does help you achieve an optimum state of health and wellbeing. Most conventional doctors would agree that this is advisable to give you and your partner the best chance of conceiving.

Essentially, acupuncture therapy is simply the use of tiny, fine needles inserted into the skin at points on the body know as “meridian points”. The amazing fact of this treatment is that it brings about a high level of relaxation. It is the perfect de-stressor and is able to bring about a deep sense of relaxation – perfect for raising the level of ones fertility.

Is Acupuncture the Final Solution to Infertility?

The therapy has long been a source of help to many couple but there is no single be-all-and-end-all solution to infertility. Yet many women decide to have acupuncture treatments as well as conventional fertility treatments. They seek to optimise their chances of falling pregnant and to assist their natural fertility in the best way they can.

The whole belief behind acupuncture is that the body is full of energy – called chi – which causes problems if it does not flow correctly. The acupuncturist finds those points, which are causing stress and disharmony, and treats them with the needles to restore the body’s natural balance.

However, as with many alternative therapies; there is no exact, scientific data to prove its worth but many desperate women, definitive proof isn’t necessary.
