i'm grateful to mom hero alaina for sharing her private struggle to overcome devastating domestic abuse: emotional, financial, legal.
alaina is role modeling how to stand up to "bullies" who exploit our adversarial family court system that profits from parental battles.
alaina was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer 3 years ago, then her 10-year marriage broke up + her husband moved 600 miles away. he hired lawyers to battle alaina in court for custody of their 5 + 11 year old children. alaina could not afford to hire an attorney + lost primary custody.
she is in remission + has a strong support system for her + the children.
join her supporters to appeal the judge's decision before june 17
worse than a deadbeat dad, it seems her ex is attempting to destroy alaina emotionally + physically with the devastating toll of chronic stress to her immune system by taking their children from her care + their home + community.
financial abuse tactics aimed at a custodial parent to get out of paying child support + spousal support hurts children most, because family resources go to lawyers + family court fees. parents lose time at both work + parenting, because they can't be in 2 places at once with attention + energy to personally work full time + care for children, since both are full time jobs.
help alaina giordano at beauty in truth: say NO! to CANCER discrimination

ciclotte monocycle exercise bike :: Luca Schieppati for Lamiflex Group
"designed to reproduce the dynamics + performance of road cycling. ideal for high intensity spinning workouts. ciclotte uses an epicycloid system, which works by generating a concentrated magnetic field using a copper ring that is rotated at a high speed in front of 5 magnets. resistance is controlled via the touch screen."
(i wonder if this is a "superconductor" + i could produce an MRI scan?
or even better, power smart appliances like washing machine + dryer)
ciclotte gym-standard training machine is only 121 lbs.
thank you home&spa design italy

we saw "forks over knives" film screening last night
in 1971 USA declared "War on Cancer", but they didn't listen to the doctor appointed by the government to lead the fight:
"casein is more deadly than ddt or any known carcinogen. casein causes cancer." dr. esselstyn, cardiologist, appointed by president nixon.
casein is "animal protein" found in all animal products including:
poultry, fish, eggs + low-fat dairy that we are often told are safe.
