rob kardashian fitness journey health weight battle fight effort hike

A lot of people will look at this pic of Rob Kardashian (above) and talk about how it looks like he hasn't made much headway on his fitness journey. To that, we say this: the picture is literally of him working on it, so what more could you want?!

Whether or not he's made significant strides is beyond the fact that he's making strides at all! He's doing something about it, which is hugely commendable in and of itself!

It's HARD to lose weight, it's never just a simple physical solution!

And here he's been spotted on his quest to drop the extra pounds during an intense hike in Culver City… so we say we're proud of him for even making the effort!

Keep up the good work, Rob!

Just one more reason to love this man!

Through his foundation for children, which fights human trafficking and abuse, Ricky Martin is opening a Prevention Center for kids in Loiza, Puerto Rico.

The Ricky Martin Foundation Child Development and Prevention Center is a $4 million institution consiting of 10 classrooms, a library, and a recreation center hoping to give toddler through high school-aged local children the tools they need for a better future.

The philanthropist unveiled the plans his latest charity endeavor at a golf tournament fundraiser held at the Trump International Golf Resort on the east coast of Puerto Rico, saying:

“This is just the start of a project that is going to spread across the rest of the island and on to the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Latin America.”

Wow! This is such an AMAZING effort on Ricky's behalf and we'd like to wish his foundation the best as they continue to make a difference in the lives of children who really need it.

White House Cracks Down On Prescription Drug Abuse

Filed under: DrugsHealthAddictionJoe Biden

OxyContin

With prescription drug abuse surpassing the number of people who overdosed during both the crack cocaine epidemic of the 1980s and the black tar heroin epidemic of the 1970s combined, the White House is finally doing something about it.

On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden announced:

"We are making an unprecedented commitment to combat the growing problem of prescription drug abuse. The government, as well as parents, patients, health care providers, and manufacturers all play a role in preventing abuse. This plan will save lives, and it will substantially lessen the burden this epidemic takes on our families, communities, and workforce."

Let's hope!

Epidemic: Responding to America's Prescription Drug Abuse Crisis will be an effort supported by federal agencies like the FDA, DEA, Health and Human Services, Justice, and Defense and Veterans Affairs.

The campaign aims to to reduce abuse and drug diversion, educate both parents and health care providers, find better ways to dispose of unused pills, and beef up enforcement efforts by clamping down on pill mills and doctor shopping.

The major push against prescription addiction is specifically cracking down on opioids, a class of drugs used to treat chronic pain, which includes OxyContin, Vicodin, Darvon, Dilaudid and Demerol.

Although viewed as medicine, the prescription pain relievers are highly addictive, as DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart said:

"When abused, prescription drugs are just as dangerous and just as addictive as drugs like methamphetamine or heroin. The more we can do to stop the abuse of prescription drugs, the more effective we will be in reducing the death, destruction and despair that accompanies all drug abuse."

The sad reality is that almost any drug can be abused by those with addictive personalities, but we hope this new campaign will drastically reduce the number of people dying from accidental overdoses of prescription drugs.
