Howell is still mortified after discovering a picture of herself posted on a Facebook page called 5-3-0 fatties.
“They post peoples pictures without their permission, like that’s hurtful,” Howell said.
The page shows snapshots of people in public who have no idea their photo is being taken.
It’s then put up on Facebook for all to see along with a post mocking them about their weight.
“I know it’s probably someone from around here and whoever it is they need to stop because that’s ridiculous,” Howell said.
Howell said the picture posted of her was taken in October when she was 50 pounds heavier than she looks now.
Howell said lifelong medical problems have caused her to struggle with her weight. But now she’s taking medication, which is helping her slim down.
“I feel so much better like the way I get dressed, the way my clothes fit,” Howell said.
CBS 13 tried to get answers on who’s behind the rude pictures and vile posts. CBS 13 called a number listed on the page but it was disconnected.
CBS 13 also tried sending messages to the creator but did not receive a response.
Meanwhile Howell said she’s not letting what happened get her down.
Instead it’s motivated her to keep working to achieve her goals.
“I’m not where I want to be, but I’ll get there,” Howell said. “I’ll get there, cyber bullying. Bullying period needs to stop, it needs to stop. So I’m gonna be a voice today for those people that don’t have that voice.”

I had been researching juicers, thinking about being healthier when I realized how insane it was to throw out all that fiber. So decided on a super blender. I did a TON of research and read many reviews. What sold me on this product was a u-tube review comparing the Vita Blend (the holy grail of blenders) to this Ninja. The reviewer is a vitablend worshiper and even she admitted this was an awesome blender… and over $300 less expensive.
I was a blender virgin when I decided to go out and invest in this baby… and let me tell you, when I was in my 20’s a good blender was $20! I happened to get mine on super tale at Target for less than $190.
The good: I LOVE that it come with the smaller travel blender. Great for customizing smoothies, using to whipping cream, etc. I love the option for the huge blender bucket as well. I make smoothies all the time and trick my kid into eating kale, spinach, dates, wheat germ and chia seeds…bwhahahahah! I also freeze the smoothies into popcicles. I WISH I had this years ago to make home made baby food.
Perfect for smoothies, whips cream well, I use it to make crepe batter, soups, etc. I love this thing!!!! Very durable so far, and super easy to clean.
Easy to use, assemble and put together. Never had any problems with the lid, breaking etc… and I bang on mine a lot (why you ask would I need to… see below).
The bad: for ANY of these high performance blenders you need to learn how to use them… not the toggle switch but the rules. I have a bad habit of overfilling the mini blenders which makes for a less smooth smoothie… but still does awesome. Also, if you use all frozen items, you must add enough liquid otherwise you get flavored snow. Pretty cool, but doesn’t blend too well since it sticks to the sides of the container…hence my need to bang the whole apparatus… without stopping and scraping down the sides (this is an observation for the small travel blender).
These blades are DANGEROUS!! I sliced off my finger tip when I reached into the larger blender to removed excess frozen blue berries (yes it was unplugged). You have to remember there are blades at the TOP and not just the bottom of the blender, which is what makes it work so well. My understanding is the VitaBlend does not have this top blade system and therefore is likely more safe. The center multilevel blade is very easily removable to easy cleaning and should be removed if you are blending liquids, soft foods, etc (the booklet explains all of this too)
Crazy loud but so are all of the power blenders.
If you want a crazy awesome power blender that make perfect smoothies but don’t want to drop $600, THIS IS THE BLENDER TO YOU.
SO, end review: very powerful blender that makes perfect smoothies and so much more! Economical compared to VitaBlend and I say if you find it for $200, you jump on it and buy it!!
I’ve come to appreciate Aeron chairs having sat in one for over 12 years now. My wife works long hours and needed a high work stool for her drawing table…so I didn’t look very far when I found this one. It’s great – with all the adjustments of a normal Aeron. The only thing to be aware of is that it only comes in one size – 2 dots not 3. That could be a concern for a large person.
Aeron changed the way everyone thought about office chairs—from its revolutionary look to its advanced ergonomics to the fact that it’s 94 percent recyclable.
Now we’ve redefined the stool. The Aeron stool provides healthy comfort and balanced body support. And an innovative footring adjustment that lets you adjust the footring independently of the stool’s seat height adjustment. That means you will have customized comfort and ergonomic support throughout the stool’s full height range.
The Redefinition of a Work Chair
Imaginative design, fast-forward ergonomics and a look so distinctive that it’s probably the only office chair that people can identify by name. Adaptable to all sizes and shapes and all the motions you go through every day while seated, Aeron provides healthy comfort and balanced body support with its innovative suspension and easy-to-use adjustment controls. Work chair, side chair, and stool support all kinds of office work. Pioneering PostureFit Innovation
A modest, but fundamental, design addition, PostureFit is part of what makes Aeron so comfortable to sit in, even for hours and hours on end. PostureFit supports the way your pelvis tilts naturally forward, so that your spine stays aligned and you avoid back pain.
We’re serious about comfort. The high, wide, contoured back takes the pressure off your lower spine. Armrests slope slightly down in the back for the most natural and comfortable support. The “waterfall” front edge of the seat takes the pressure off your thighs, so your blood keeps circulating and you stay alert and focused. The patented Kinemat tilt mechanism lets your neck, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles pivot naturally. The Aeron chair moves effortlessly with your whole body, as if your body were telling the chair what to do.
First Chair to Lose the Foam
Where are the cushions? A chair should conform to your contours and relieve the pressure points and heat build-up that cause the aches and pains and fatigue that people who sit all day often think are just part of the job. The Pellicle-that specially woven seat and back suspension material developed for Aeron-does what cushions can’t. It conforms to your body and cradles it, keeping the pressure even across your body-and keeps you cool at the same time.
It’s Got the Look
The Aeron aesthetic has been copied and copied-because, well, it’s a beautiful chair. But despite its stand-out look, it fits right in, whether your office is high-tech, casual, elegant, or a room at home that doubles as a gym. Three Pellicle weaves in neutral colors and a range of finish options so that you can create the Aeron you really want.
( Review Pros-TEROL By therck ) I have been diagnosed with BPH and have lived with the associated problems and inconveniences. I tried other remedies, including saw palmetto, to no avail. With recent (about 6 months) worsening of symptoms, I tried prescription Vesicare. While that seems to work, it is quite expensive. I looked around for some other remedy and happened onto Pros-TEROL.
I am generally quite skeptical of claims for herbal supplements and “magic potions” but, to my pleasant surprise, I must admit that this product seems to work well. Since trying it for the first time about three months ago, I have found that symptoms have decreased considerably. Night time trips to the bathroom have been reduced from 3-4 to 0-1. And urgency has also reduced substantially. I have purchased my second order and continue to use the product, even scrimping a bit on dosage with no noticeable negative impact. What can I say? If something works as well as or better than more expensive alternatives, I am happy to pass the word along. Pros-TEROL Additional Information

We are pleased to introduce a new form of CoQ10, called Ubiquinol-100 which is vastly superior to ALL other forms of CoQ10. Your body absorbs up to 8 times more CoQ10 with Ubiquinol-100 than with ordinary CoQ10!
Have You Taken CoQ10 Before — And Never Felt Any Noticeable Benefits?
You may already know that you SHOULD be taking CoQ10. Far more than just one of the best “heart savers”, it has many proven health benefits, such as increased energy … weight loss … cell protection … better cardiovascular health … blood sugar support … better vision … and much more.
And if you take statin drugs such as Lipitor®, Crestor®, Zocor®, or Pravachol® — you absolutely MUST take a good CoQ10 supplement. That’s because statin drugs can virtually WIPE OUT your body’s essential levels of CoQ10, and prevent your cells from functioning properly! This can be far more dangerous than you can imagine.
But if you’re like most folks who’ve tried CoQ10 for a couple of months or more — you may have quit taking it because it didn’t make you feel any different, and it can be costly.
There’s a very good reason WHY — and now we have a solution for you. One that will give you bursts of energy like you had in your 20s and 30s, plus provide all the benefits that CoQ10 is SUPPOSED to deliver!
Now There’s A SOLUTION For You …
We are pleased to introduce a new form of CoQ10, called Ubiquinol-100— which is vastly superior to ALL other forms of CoQ10. In fact, your body absorbs up to 8 times more CoQ10 with Ubiquinol-100 than with ordinary CoQ101! And because each easy-to-swallow softgel contains a full 100mg of absorb able CoQ10, you’re getting a powerhouse dose, which you WILL feel almost immediately.
We know that once you try new Ubiquinol-100, you will feel the difference. If not, you can get a full refund of the purchase price, under the terms of our unconditional Money-Back Guarantee.
Take advantage of quality discounts and feel great again!
Absorb up to 8 times more CoQ10 with Ubiquinol-100! The TRUTH About Most CoQ10 Supplements…
Unfortunately, most CoQ10 supplements available today — either in stores or by mail — are virtually worthless! That’s because they’re made from a cheap, inferior form of the enzyme called ubiquinone — which your body has great trouble absorbing. Even though the label may say you’re getting “100mg of CoQ10”, you’re wasting your money because hardly any of the enzyme is ever absorbed by your body!
The CoQ10 never gets to your cells, and that’s WHY you don’t feel any different after taking it. In fact, if you’re over 50, almost none of it gets absorbed!
There’s certainly no love lost between users of the rival social networking websites and we bring you the best of them in our Storify below

The site, which claims to have 1.23bn monthly users, displayed an error message to users who were trying to log on.
Visitors at around 9am UK time were greeted with a message reading “Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.”
But on Twitter meanwhile, thousands saw the funny side by creating memes and demonstrating their wit in 140 characters or less.
Even though Mark Zuckerberg’s baby was back online after 20 minutes, #Whenfacebookwasdown was still trending on Twitter into the afternoon.
Users took delight in poking fun at a generation of people who dedicate their lives to the social network and who are seemingly unable to function without it.

A cyber-stalker posted a pregnant woman’s phone number on a hook-up site so she was pestered with demands for sex – while giving birth.
Sick Robert Jeffery, 36, listed mum-to-be Sarah Sutton‘s details on a Craigslist adult classified page under the headline “Bubbly Cornish Maid”, a court heard.
As Miss Sutton, 34, went into labour she received numerous phone calls from lusty men and even an elderly couple wanting to have sex with her.
Jeffery developed an obsession with Miss Sutton despite only having spoken with her briefly three years earlier, a court heard.
After finding a video of her and her partner on YouTube he launched a six-month cyber-stalking campaign that put her through “psychological hell”.
Truro crown court heard he stole a picture of Miss Sutton from Facebook and used it to create a string of bogus profiles for her on social networking sites.
Miss Sutton then started receiving messages and updates but had no idea who was behind them.
Jeffery stepped up his hate campaign last August, messaging heavily pregnant Miss Sutton to say he hoped her baby would be stillborn.
He also created fake adult listings for her on the Craigslist website.
As a result Miss Sutton was pestered for sex as she went into labour last August.
Jeffery, of Redruth, Cornwall, admitted one count of stalking involving fear of violence between June 13 and December 3 last year at an earlier hearing.
Jailing him for three years, Judge Christopher Harvey Clark QC said: “This was no prank. You showed vindictive cruelty to Sarah Sutton and that cruelty had devastating consequences for her. For six months she went through psychological hell.”
After the hearing Ms Sutton urged other victims of cyberstalking to come forward, insisting police will take it seriously.
She said: “People I have spoken to did not know they could go to the police about that. We do not have to put up with this.
“I am just pleased this is the end and I can move on.”
Though we all like to keep our pups in tow whenever we can find a dog-friendly outdoor space to romp and play, but as the weather heats up, it may be best to leave certain breeds at home. We asked Dr. Louise Murray, vice president of the ASPCA Animal Hospital, to share the top breeds that are at risk for overheating in warm weather in addition to some tips for keeping your pup cool and safe in the summer months.
Although many of the breeds on this list are brachycephalic-or have short noses and wide, flat heads-it’s important to take proper precautions for keeping any dog cool in warm weather and never (ever!) leaving them in a hot car for any period of time.
#1 – Pug
Playful, confident and friendly, Pugs are well loved for their charisma and charm. With a wrinkled face, short legs and compact body, the Pug’s unique expression and physique is well known among dog fanciers and pet parents alike. Because of its small size, Pugs can happily adapt to both city and country living.
Brachycephalic breeds-or dogs with short noses, compact skulls and compressed upper respiratory systems-like the Pug are inefficient panters, which means that they’re unable to cool themselves as effectively as other dog breeds. Because of this, brachycephalic breeds are more prone to overheating and require extra care in warm weather, particularly access to shade and plenty of water.
“Dogs can become dehydrated quickly, so give them plenty of water when it’s hot outdoors,” Murray said. “If they are panting heavily, bring them to a cooled-off area and give them water.”
She also recommends providing pets with a shady place to escape if they’re out in the sun or keeping them completely indoors when it’s very hot.
#2 – Pekinese
An ancient toy breed that originated in China over 1,000 years ago, the Pekinese is a happy, loveable lapdog. Loyal and devoted to it’s family, the Pekinese can also be wary of strangers. With a thick undercoat and long, dense overcoat, Pekinese require regular grooming, in addition to special care in warm weather.
If you anticipate spending a lot of time outdoors with you dog, it’s important to check with your veterinarian to make sure they’re healthy enough to participate in the plans you make, Murray said. “Every dog is different, so there’s no set of guidelines that can apply to every one,” she said.
#3 – Bulldog
Originally used for bull baiting, the Bulldog is now one of the most popular companion animals in America and is one of the most popular AKC breeds. A short yet powerful dog with a heavy build, trademark under bite and lots of loose skin, the Bulldog makes an adorable couch companion, albeit one that may be prone to snorting and drooling.
Learn more about Bulldogs.
While the Bulldog may require some prodding to go out for a walk, they might have some trouble breathing as they run or play because they are brachycephalic, Murray said, so take care not to over-exercise them.
“Dogs will not limit their own activity, so pay close attention to how your dog is acting as they play,” she said.
#4 – Shih Tzu
Another ancient dog breed that was kept as a companion and lap dog by Chinese royalty, Shih Tzus remain popular family pets and companions. A playful breed that loves learning new things, Shih Tzus are generally good with children and other dogs. With a dense undercoat and long, straight outer coat, the Shih Tzu requires regular grooming and may snort and sneeze (in addition to overheat in warm weather) frequently because of its short muzzle.
You’ll want to avoid spending too much time on the pavement with your dog in warm weather, as the ground can heat up quickly and can create blisters or burns on the pads of your dog’s paws, Murray said.
#5 – Boston Terrier
One of the first breeds established in the United States, the Boston Terrier is a lively, intelligent breed with a gentle and easy going disposition. A compact breed with large ears and a wide smile, Boston Terriers generally require a minimal amount of exercise and grooming and, aside from their propensity to overheat in warm weather, tend to be easy keepers.
This little lap-warmer was bread as a companion for French royalty beginning in the 19th century. With a small, compact body and large, rounded ears, French Bulldogs also have short muzzles and broad, flat faces. Sweet, affectionate and friendly, French Bulldogs get along well with everyone but tend to become attached to one person in particular. In addition to their high risk of over heating in warm weather, French Bulldogs also need to have the spaces between the wrinkles on their face and neck kept clean and dry to prevent skin infections.
#7 – Boxer
Used for fighting and bull baiting in the 18th century, Boxers have become popular family pets, police dogs and military dogs. Large and muscular with a square head, short nose and high-tucked abdomen, Boxers love to play and spend time with their people. Particularly affectionate with children, the Boxers can be protective of their families in the presence of other dogs and require lots of attention.
If dogs are allowed to be active during the hottest parts of the day, they are at risk for heatstroke, which can be fatal if not corrected quickly. If at all possible, Murray recommends limiting extended outdoor time to early afternoon or evening on hot days. If your dog must be out and about during the hottest hours of the day, provide them with plenty of water, access to shade and time to take breaks and catch their breath, she said.
#8 – Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Considered a fashionable lap dog for women in the 17th century, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel remains a popular and friendly companion. An easygoing breed that falls in love with everyone it meets, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is small bodied with a round head, short nose and fluffy drop eats. A breed that loves attention, its medium-length coat requires regular grooming. Although the breed can fare well in either the city or the country, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels-like the other breeds on this list-will need to have access to air conditioning or plenty of cool places when the temperature heats up.
(CNN) — Amazon wants you to buy its first smartphone, the Fire, which it unveiled Wednesday. But it also wants you to use that phone to buy more stuff … from Amazon.
And one of the device’s most distinctive features is designed to make it as easy as possible do just that.
It’s called Firefly, and it contains image-, text- and audio-recognition technology to help you scan and identify books, songs, movies and other items. Amazon wants you to use Firefly so much that the feature has its own dedicated button on the side of the phone for one-stop shopping.
“The Firefly button lets you identify printed Web and email addresses, phone numbers, QR and bar codes, artwork, and over 100 million items, including songs, movies, TV shows, and products — and take action in seconds,” Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said in announcing the phone, which will run Amazon’s Fire operating system.
For example, you could use the phone’s cameras and sensors to identify an exotic fruit or vegetable, figure out who sings a song on the radio or help send an e-mail to a new contact after scanning their business card.
But forget all that. Well, except for maybe the song. Once you’ve identified the tune, Amazon wants you to download it. From Amazon.
Bezos demonstrated the feature onstage Wednesday by using the phone to instantly identify items arrayed on a table, including a book, a CD and a jar of Nutella.
As with products like its Kindle e-readers, Kindle Fire tablets and Amazon Fire TV, the Fire Phone is designed to pull you into Amazon’s growing universe of products and services and then keep you there.
So with Firefly, the Amazon Music Store will pop up as the default source to buy that song. And that’s also where those QR and bar codes come in.
Firefly will make it even easier to pursue a habit that has proliferated in the smartphone age and driven brick-and-mortar stores crazy. A user will presumably be able to walk into a store, pick out a product they like, zap it with Firefly and, within a second or two, find out whether it’s available on Amazon for less money. (And then maybe even order it right there from their phone.)
According to Amazon, the Firefly feature will recognize 70 million products, 35 million songs, 245,000 movies and TV episodes, and 160 live TV channels.
That’s a lot of chances to spend money.
The Fire also boasts a 3-D screen. It ships July 25, although you can pre-order it now. The phone is available only on AT&T’s network.
If there’s one difference between the Firefly-loaded Fire Phone and other Amazon hardware, it’s the price. At $199 for a 32GB model and $299 for the 64GB — with an AT&T contract — its cost is comparable with that of other high-end smartphones.
By comparison, the Kindle Fire tablet debuted in 2011 at $199, a full $300 less than the cheapest iPad 2 at the time. The first Kindle e-reader debuted about $400 but quickly dropped in price. There are Kindles that can now be purchased for about $70.
Under Bezos, the company’s strategy has been to sell hardware for less than its competitors, sometimes even at a loss, to get customers using other Amazon products.
As such, customers who buy the Fire soon will get a free year’s subscription (normally $99) to Amazon Prime, which offers two-day shipping, free streaming on Prime Instant Video and access to the Kindle book-lending library.
Whether the Fire Phone will be an instant hit remains to be seen. Shoppers may be hesitant to buy a phone online if they can’t test it out in stores.
But if Amazon can carve out a decent piece of the smartphone market, which moved more than 1 billion phones last year, Firefly may help make sure those Amazon purchases just keep on coming.
