Blue Ribbon for Free Speech

Journalist Roxana Saberi has been incarcerated in Tehran's Evin Prison, where she is spending her birthday on a hunger strike. Around the world, people continue to face similar violations of their rights to freedom of expression, free speech, and a free press. Let's show the international community that we won't be silenced by intimidation and tyranny - that we won't stop believing in and fighting for these rights.

Freedom of the press is not a luxury. It lies at the heart of making this world healthier and more just. People without a voice and without a clear line of sight into the things that would threaten or corrupt their societies cannot hope for equitable growth and meaningful change.

A group of bloggers around the world are holding a blog rally in support of journalists, bloggers, students, and writers who have dared to express their thoughts freely only to be imprisoned, abused, or killed.

Please consider "wearing" a blue ribbon online this week on your blogs, websites, and facebook / myspace / twitter pages, and invite others to do the same. Get the discussion going, and keep it going!

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states, "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference, and impart information and ideas through any media regardless of frontiers."

The Truth About Growth
A person’s body actively grows until he reaches the age of 21, where further growth, although not impossible, may not be as visible as before. During puberty, a person’s body is at its height to produce growth hormones. The growth is astoundingly fast, you can almost measure the changes every week.
However, at the age of 21, the body begins to produce less and less of growth hormones, drastically slowing down the speed at which we grow. The growth is very minimal; you can hardly see any difference from the past year and today.
Because the body’s hormones reach a balance state during this age and beyond, there is almost no hope of improving one’s height, unless the growth hormones are again released. Now this is the point where experts tried to figure out how to release the growth hormones that are either being produced too few or are hardly being produced at all. Visit here to get more about this, .
This is where human growth hormone releasers take the stage. Since the problem of many small people is that their glands produce very few growth hormones, it is only logical to have something to trigger it. Many products that trigger the release of growth hormones are now being developed and produced in the market. One example is the Growth Flex V Pro System.
Of course, these products also require that a person become physically active. This way, the bones and muscles will slowly adapt to the increasing level of growth hormone production in the body. Some exercise techniques are being taught to maximize growth levels. Take tour here at, .
